I visited Moxie's just off Robson Street mid week, where the quality of the meal (honey glazed sirloin) was great, and the beer excellent. My waitress (Natalie) was very friendly, attentive, helpful and professional. The interior of the restaurant is quite dark, and has a cosy and relaxed feel. The beer I tried was local (I think from Granville Island). All of my evening meals came with asparagus (in season), which made me feel slightly better about the vast quantity of meat I was consuming.
I was visiting Vancouver for a few days for a conference, and these experiences help to leave a very nice impression of the city.
