Respond to Review of Yew Restaurant
by vegan frog
Review: Went to Yew to try another option downtown Vancouver.The food was pretty good but not amazing. We had the tacos and asparagus salad for starter. The asparagus salad with mushroom and celeriac puree was the best dish of the night. The tacos were nothing special, although they were fresh and tasty enough. Then we had the saffron risotto and the artichoke dish. Both were good and different. We had the brownie for dessert. I would have preferred it warm. On the whole the food was good, the presentation was beautiful but we weren't blown away especially for the price. The risotto is $20!! The room was beautiful but the crowd was trying a bit too hard to be hip and we felt uncomfortable as vegans in there. We were lucky to have a great server who had vegan knowledge as well. Also, the smell of fish and cooked meat was a slight turnoff. It was great to try a new place but we prefer to stick to veg restaurants when we go out. The final bill was pricey! Will we go back? Maybe, but probably not in a hurry.
