Respond to Review of Yew Restaurant
Review: Dinner at Yew exceeded my expectations. I was so impressed, I ate there twice throughout my brief Vancouver trip. First off, it was really refreshing to see a separate vegan menu with a few different choices for appetizers and mains. Even better...the dishes were creative and full of veggie goodness. No boring pasta dishes or salads in sight! Highlights for me were the asparagus with celery root puree (appetizer) and the spicy quinoa and kale (main). Both were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Best of all, it didn't feel like the dishes were just a bunch of vegetable side dishes thrown together, or a dish from the "regular" menu with the meat/fish removed. I should also mention that I have a bunch of food allergies and they were able to accommodate me without any hesitation. I felt very comfortable eating there and the servers were all very knowledgeable and friendly.
