Unwind - West Coast Social
Just had the Valentine's dinner ($39,4 course menu). Good deal.
Dine out meal was delicious. But portions were a bit small.
I brought my family to dine out to celebrate CNY as the menu looks very attractive and tasty. Afterwards, I was quite disappointed with the experience. The servers were polite but very careless when they serve dirty utensils to customers. When I asked for a cup of warm water, I flagged to them immediately a big piece of disgusting chocolate/coffee stains on the cup. When the beef was served, the handle of the knife has a very oily texture. I bet it's the dishwasher problem. The beef itself is fine but it is overrated if you call it an AAA sirloin. Not sure if this is now the quality of a $25/3-course-meal due to inflation, I'd rather spend it on a decent lunch/brunch.
Gong Hei Fat Choy Kitty, We were sad to read your review, but we appreciate the time you took to write it. These 2 stars are the lowest we've seen, but given what we have read, it sounds like we are even more frustrated than you are. Our servers are our strength, and it is disappointing to see we let you down on Saturday. We'll review with our team, as these obvious misses are unacceptable :( Please do not hesitate to contact us directly before your next visit. We promise we're better!

This is a 30 seat restaurant. They have two long communal tables, two tables of 4, 1 table of 2, and 3 booths that seat 2-3 people. The booths have their own tv but please don't turn them on because the sound can be disturbing to other guests.
This place is casual so no need to dress up. Also, they don't push the alcohol & if you only want to drink hot water, that's fine with them too.
There is only one server, so please be patient.
Our server was Darcy, he was friendly and personable. Feel free to joke with him.
DH ordered soup, beef (medium), and crepes suzette.
I ordered duck breast, beef (medium well), and crepes suzette.
The soup had 2 mussels, there were 6 slices of duck breast.
I thought beef medallions would be circular but they were a small rectangular shape. It was tasty. There were 5 spinach-potato dumplings, & 4 spears of asparagus.
When they bring the crepes suzette, the grand marnier is in a metal container, and the server will pour the whole thing over your crepes suzette. I thought it was too much alcohol. You might want to tell him that you'll pour it yourself. Also, it wasn't flambeed live.
Hello Teemsum, I am thrilled to see you had a generally positive experience the other night for DOV! The menu is a tonne of fun, but I agree there are a couple kinks we had to iron out. The live flambee of Grand Marnier in particular is something we ironed out just last night for good (I hope)! Darcy is indeed a great member of our team, and we're appreciative of your feedback. Hopefully we can welcome you back soon to earn stars 4 and 5.
Food was not flavourful/tasty enough or enough in quantity for this level of restaurant
This restaurant sits inside Holiday Inn in downtown Vancouver. The food is satisfactory at affordable price. It is not a busy Sunday night, therefore, we get our meal fairly quickly. Beside, the service is very attentive too.
The server LEO made it all worthwhile w his gr8 attitude & care! He made sure, I had everything & recommended a new menu item: A delicious Brussels Sprout salad!
I wld return only 2 hv the lovely, caring service of Leo! The eatery was calm & quiet, a gr8 refuge on a Saturday night.
In a Holiday Inn? Hotel in case you’re trying to find it. Service was attentive and burger hit the spot.
