SF Chowhounders thoughts on Vancouver dining?

So, I am headed to Vancouver and I have one night to have a spectacular meal. After searching the Canada boards, I thought I would seek some help from my fellow SF Chowhounders, as there are a number of Vancouver transplants in the bay area.

My sister-in-law suggested "C" restaurant. Does anyone have thoughts on this? I have read some reviews on this restaurant and I have not been impressed. I am completely open to suggestions and will go wherever the best food in Vancouver is. Thank you in advance for your advice.

        1. With one night, one dinner, I would go to West.

          1. Based on my last experience at C and the report of a group of friends who went more recently I would not choose it for your one great meal in Vancouver. I would go to West, Vij's or Chambar but maybe you should consider one of fmed's crawl itineraries from his post on march 30th.........
            "I would do a Gastown crawl one evening: Chambar (close to Gastown), Boneta, Salt, Cobre, Chill Winston -- then an Izakaya crawl another: Guu, Gyoza King, Hapa, Zakkushi, Kingyo. Both crawls are quite walkable." use the dinehere link to check out those suggestions....

              Ya, the Gastown Crawl is awesome. I do it much to often for my wallet.

              I make it smaller though: Social (oysters) - Boneta/Cobre (dinner) - Salt (cheese/meat/wine) - Chill Winston (drinks - open an hour later than the rest).
