My girlfriend and I were in Vancouver this weekend and, based on my perusal of the Chowhound board, we chose C Restaurant for our Saturday night dinner. All in all, in was an extremely good choice. Here's the rundown:
Appetizers: I had the warm lobster salad, which was beautifully presented and very tasty. My girlfriend had the lobster bisque, which was even better than my lobster salad. Two servers presented the dishes in a very professional manner.
Main: I had the B.C. salmon, which was a little undercooked for my taste, but it came with this salty, candied salmon that was super. The salmon also came with this pumpkin gnocchi that was a great complement. She really enjoyed her crispy fresh trout that came with new potatoes and sauteed spinach with a thyme butter sauce.
Desserts: We were pretty stuffed by the dessert time, but we had mentioned to our waiter (who was very nice) that the chocolate plate with truffles sounded good, so he subsequently told us that we could get a half-plate that was terrific. I had a yerba mate tea that my girlfriend pilfered because it was so good.
Wines: She had an Antonin Rodet Pinot Noir from France. I had the Cedar Creek Pinot Noir (from B.C.), which went well with my appetizer.
All this for C$175.
