  • The ratings above are my personal opinions only.  I’m not a professional food critic or journalist, and have no culinary training or experience in the hospitality industry
  • Ratings simply serve as a quick reference to convey my overall impression of a restaurant and how likely I would recommend it or go back again.  Unlike ratings systems from Michelin, NYT, AAA, etc., my ratings are subjective and given relative to other Vancouver restaurants at a similar price range or cuisine.  While my overall food and travel experiences do inform the content, I try my best to keep my ratings and perspective grounded to what’s available in our city
  • Food flavor and quality would obviously be the most important, but this would be weighed against the price, taking into account other factors such as how well it’s packaged, service, presentation, etc.
