“Great food but snobby waiter...”

Long day working a trade show and not yet acclimated to the city..found the closest restaurant which was also probably the most expensive in town. The meal was amazing, the waiter? not so much...

We were there for drinks after dinner! The server overheard that it's one of our friend's birthday, he took a plate full of chocolates and a candle, very nice touch!

Went for Sunday brunch
food was fantastic - local and fresh ingredients
Lovely restaurant, loved the sparkling water Badoit, it reminded me of Paris again
Very reasonable for brunch 3 courses $30
The mini doughnuts at the beginning were delicious and unexpected,
Had a nice time, would return for sure at lunch or dinner.

Dear Susan N,

Thank you for your note regarding your visit in December. YEW Restaurant + Bar is so convenient during Christmas shopping and such a timesaver with it being basically attached to Pacific Centre Mall. We are looking forward to your next visit, and thank you once again.

Kind regards,
Jeff Hanson
