    Hey Nancy and Jay,

    Thank you for organizing such a lovely venue for our dinner! I agree w/ the general sentiment expressed; the portions were small and I was hungry throughout and still a little hungry by the end of the dinner. However, how often does that happen; not very! A good reminder of our many abundant blessings on this side of our BC world!

    I also want to say, that as an organizer, it is "hit and miss" and one cannot always predict every outcome. At my last dine out, I left stuffed but the food was not as tasty by comparison! So, not every dine-out will deliver 100%. The key is to moderate expectations, see it as an adventure and focus on the positive.

    Kudos to Nancy and Jay for all your hard work that goes into organizing these events! The rest of us just get to show up, pay up and enjoy the food, venue and company!

    Blessings to all; until the next dine out...M
    Until the next dine out...

    The company was great, and dressing up was fun, but I agree that 1/2 cup does not a serving make.

      Thank Nancy for organising it. I just helped keep track of the payments.

    I agree with Alison AND also with those who said the portions were small. Plated individual service for 5 courses at that price is unheard of, but the portions seemed smaller than our last event there. In future, I would suggest a higher price and more food. There is a lot of work that goes into planning these events and I'm not sure what more homework I could have done....

      It could've been human error when serving out the portions. My dessert brownie was much smaller than others, and Nancy, I remember your main course being smaller too than the others.

      June 3, 2013

    • Jay

      ..and overall, a good deal for the total price and the five courses.

      June 3, 2013

  • Alison

    I thought the value for the courses that we got was excellent. Without tax and tip, it was $14 for 5 courses! Divide $14 by 5 and that's only $2.80 per course (for top quality food) - fantastic value! (and you wouldn't be able to find that kind of deal anywhere else in the city, that is for sure)

    Hi everyone that was at Cravings last night. The food was really good but I am sorry the portions were not acceptable. I would have paid for the meal if that was an option. I also had to eat when I got home, just like I do when I go out with my non-vegetarian friends. Vegan & vegetarians do like to eat and someone did not do there homework on the menu portions before hand.

    It showed promise- and overall food was good, atmosphere nice and company great... But such tiny portions served very slowly!! My partner and I were starving all through the meal, and at the end of the meal (after 2 hours) we were still hungry! Maybe that's why it's called Cravings- as we left with a craving for more food and had to stop to get more to eat on the way home.

    I had a terrific time. Thanks to the organizers. And, of course, I was one of the last to leave that gem of a restaurant not far from my Fraserview residence which I never, in the 10 years I have lived here, knew about before. I have a craving to return. lol The quality of food up to its stellar reputation. My only beef (Opps!), I mean my only suggestion, is that they might be a bit more generous in the portions they serve up. The cabarnet I had was impressionable as well. The folks I met just great. A la prochaine! Auf wiederschauen, Hasta proxima.

    The food was very tasty and enjoyable! My dad (a non-vegetarian) extremely enjoyed the whole event and discovered a "new" food that he wants to eat regularly now - hummus!

    The menu looks awesome, Nancy! I've had their quinoa and arugula salad several times, as I live closeby, and it's super delicious. Looking forward to this.
