I'll be heading out next weekend (staying by Coal Harbour) and plan on having a nice'ish dinner with friends (6 of us) on Sunday night. Something casual but with great food. We're not stingy, but they prefer to get what they pay for over anything too precious. So family style and generous sharing plates are a plus.
My list right now included:
Location isn't a huge issue, though downtown is best. Things might get a bit boozey and loud (though not obnoxious).
Wildebeest was up there, but I'm reading a lot of conflicting/extreme reviews.Open to other suggestions as well. Good beer menu for brownie points!
