PerfectAmazing food! Fine dining with personal service! Amaazing for our first anniversary. We will be back whenever we visit Vancouver again.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgood atmosphere and one couldgood atmosphere and one could have a conversation without noise5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experienceMy date and I took advantage of the "Dinner at the MET" hotel and restaurant package on our visit to Vancouver, which is an excellent value. The staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing, and the ambience is pleasant. And the food? Oh, the food. Everything is fresh, flavoured to perfection and impeccably presented.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBravo Chef Hamid Salimian!Chef Hamid Salimian has taken Diva up several levels. When everyone else is "doing the same thing", his food is innovative, creative with amazing combinations of flavours and textures that I have experience before. Tasting menu is a must try - truly outstanding! My guests have never been disappointed - heck, it makes me look good!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA long time favoriteMade better because of Corey the sommelier and manager. Service and food are innovative and spot on. Always a good spot for a special occasion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly fine diningWent for the 7 course tasting menu and it was one of the best tasting menus that we have had ( and we dine out a fair amount ). The courses were incredibly creative both in taste and presentation. In addition to the 7 courses there were a few snacks to begin and later a palate cleanser which were equally delightful. The service was excellent as well and a special thanks goes to Michael the manager/host. He was most personable and professional and really contributed to a great evening. We are very fortunate to have many fine restaurants in Vancouver but Diva with its wonderful food and service make dining out truly a fine dining experience.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChef outdid himself with creativeneChef outdid himself with creativeness using squid-- absolutely delicious and such a change from other entree choices.
The stilton cheesecake was outstanding...I want the recipe!!
It had the richness of the cheese plate and the slightly bruleed top was enough "dessert"
Chef was actually away, but you wouldn't know it. His kitchen did him proud3/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
