We have been here quite often and have found the food to be decent and the drinks to be good. It is open late so it is quite busy on Friday and Saturday nights with late night drinks and food and they have a dj which has not been a problem until recently.
Lately, they have taken to turning the music up so loud that you can't hear the waiter or the members of your own party so you must yell at them to be heard. We had several speakers above us that were blasting music and by the end of our meal, our eardrums were aching. We asked for them to turn it down and it improved for a bit and then it went back up again. We were so uncomfortable that we decided to leave and unfortunately, we won't be returning. We come to Subeez to have a place to eat, drink and talk and since it is a restaurant, you'd think we would be allowed the luxury to connect with friends without being assailed with headache inducing loud music.
The location and ambience is good and the food and drinks are ok as well. Service can be slow (one time we waited 20 min for a beer) and never got the water we asked for until we asked again. We watched our waiter once hang around and chit chat when we were waiting for drinks for a what seemed to be excruciatingly long wait for a drink. Food can take a long while to get there if it is busy.
Subeez was a good place to get a good vibe about what Vancouver's scene could be. Funky and fun, but they have decided to go to the tired nightclub method. "Crank the music so that they can't hear or talk to each other and so that they drink more to stay occupied".
