Vancouver and Victoria Restaurants

Hi, I'll be in Vancouver for 3 nights w/ my parents and am looking for some good restaurant choices. Mid - high end ( but not formal attire ( no one will have a skirt or a sports coat)/ Open to all types of food. Also would like a Dim Sum recommendation.

Same for 3 nights in Victoria ( where I live , but rarely go out to eat)

Thanks for your help

Lots of choices....
I'll start with Nu,Chambar,Parkside, West, Vij's, C, Feenies, Bin 941/942, and Raincity Grill. Do a search on the web to check out the menus and see what you like. Can't help you with the Dim sum choice though!
cheers,
CC

In Victoria, Matisse is my favorite restaurant, by far. In fact, it's right up there as one of my favorite restaurants anywhere...authentic French cuisine in an intimate brick-clad setting. The owners, John and David, are very charming restaurateurs/hosts. They usually go to France every year, specifically scouting for new/interesting recipes.

Friends, Just to report back on our Vancouver Dining:

Il Giardino: Excellent italian cuisine with superior service in a beautiful restaurant

Vij's: great contemporary indian food very friendly staff and clientele, its a happening place. We got there at 6:15 andf walked in ( no reservations talken) but by 6:30 iwas full and a large happy crowd waiting inside and out

Montri's: very good thai food at the end of west Broadway; worth the drive or bus from downtown

for downtown dim sum: classy Victoria Restaurant in the mall below the Hyatt on Burrard. very good food nice selection we were the only table of non chinese in an almost full dining room

thanks for your reccies
