Cork & Fin is located in the Gastown area and is known for their market fresh seafood. They offer a raw bar where oysters are served as well as the main dining area. The above pictures are from a two person prix fixe menu for $30 each. The appetizer was a choice of salad or oysters, but we both chose oysters since the restaurant is famous for them! Otherwise, we tried all the different choices in the menu. Great ambiance, but portions were a little small.

So I finally uploaded the pictures from my friend’s birthday dinner. Sorry if the quality isn’t as good. The restaurant was really dark! So we went to Chop Steakhouse in Richmond for dinner. We reserved a party room so it was closed off from the rest of the restaurant. The ambiance was excellent, but I found the server to be a little annoying. He came back too often to check on us even though we had a sliding door and all. The food was really good though, especially the Chop Platter. Prices are the typical white restaurant prices I would say. Great environment though, especially since it’s under a hotel. Looks real grand inside!
