The food was delicious. The location is fantastic. The server forgot about our desserts. We had to wait over 30 minutes for them. It would have been nice to have had them been given to us for free.

Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its
rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of
Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place
responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'
