Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Parker
Review: The Parker was recommended to us as one of the top veg restaurants in Vancouver. The restaurant is quite small, but comfortable. We arrived very early, and the restaurant was empty. The dishes are expensive, but quite small. I was with a group of 3, and we ordered 4 dishes: Heart of palm Quinoa, Home-made alkaline noodles, confit potato. The vegan options are clearly marked. For the prices and for the small portion sizes, I expected perfection, but this was not the case. The dishes were tasty, but not mindblowing. The presentation was lovely. The heart of palm was my least favorite dish. The others were well-balanced. I could easily have devoured all 4 dishes myself which would have cost me in the range of 70 dollars for just the equivalent of one or large-size entree at a less expensive restaurant. If I were to come back to this restaurant, I would recommend ordering the 5 course meal for 32 dollars. As each dish is a work of art, each dish takes some time to prepare, so give yourself plenty of time if you decide to eat here.
