My suggestions would be
Les Faux Bourgoise
Very good French Bistro food for a great price. Only drawback is that you need to make reservations at least 2 weeks in advance.
if mixed tastes include Asian friendly this may be a good choice: classic Vancouver Vancouver favourite Cambodian/Vietnamese in deepest darkest Chinatown. (Need to include butter beef and lemon fried squid and/or chicken wings for full effect
Trattoria Italian Kitchen
Decent Italian food for reasonable price in cool funky Kits atmosphere. Only drawback is that no reservations are taken and you may need to send an advance seating party.
