A word from Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar
Every day funk is what going Rogue is all about. Crazy tall light fixtures and walls that glow set against sand-blasted brick and well-worn hardwood floors. Menu-wise, going Rogue means doing things in the kitchen others said couldn’t be done. Like a completely fresh burger served medium-rare to make it the juiciest and best tasting in town. Or corn-dogs your not supposed to want but secretly crave. Going Rogue means your horizons are greater than the “usual suspects” of chain restaurants. Rogue gives it’s customer an eclectic enough offering of food and surroundings, that they can feel and be themselves. You can go Rogue when you’re slumming, you can go Rogue when you need to impress. You can go Rogue with a date, your mates or with your boss. Best of all, you can afford to go Rogue every day of the week. Need a stiff drink and tasty meal to get you through your daily grind and have enough left over to do it all again tomorrow? Go Rogue.

    We chose this location because we had members in our group looking for gluten free options and also because they took reservations. The service started off poorly, but did improve. There were a few issues with the meal that we didn't feel were properly addressed. Would not be high on the list of places to revisit.

    We ordered an appy right away, then got lost in catching up. When the appy arrived, both my guest and I special ordered a dish (without tomatoes) and then continued our conversation. We weren't really keeping track of time. Suddenly, a server comes by, apologizes for the delay (apparently, they made the first set WITH tomatoes) and COMPED OUR MEAL other than the appy. We weren't even aware of the "delay" until they told us. I'll definitely be back. These guys really want the business.

    The only thing wrong was that the server was a bit quick to the table and felt interruptive. It made the experience feel a bit rushed. I was on a date and we were spending a lot of time talking, it felt a bit pressured to order our food. Otherwise is was quite a nice time. Food and drinks were wonderful. I have been there two other times before. It was a good date spot.

    Prices are possibly a little steep for lunch, but I had an excellent 'Quick Combo' , choosing 2 tacos with a seafood chowder and fries for about $10 which I considered to be excellent value. It also tasted very good. The serving staff were very friendly and efficient, and seemed able to judge who required a quick lunch and who wanted to linger a little. Very enjoyable and unhesitatingly recommended.

    I was quite disappointed with my experience at the Rogue. I made the effort to make a reservation on Open Table days before the dinner. When I got there Friday afternoon, it was busy (after work rush). The host did not have my table of six ready and it seemed as though they forgot. It seemed quite unorganized. My party waited patiently for almost 30mins, while others (who didn't make a reso), got in. Then, drinks took a long time, food took a long time, and my pizza came to the table barely warm.

    Never been before. If you like Fish or Chicken Tacos, they make 'em great and the portion is abundant. Chose the Quick Pick which included two large fish tacos, the Nice Little Salad and Seafood chowder, while my wife had Chicken Tacos. Will go back. Note, the restaurant is associated to Steam Works, which also has over the top pub food. Service was stellar. Its a bar so be prepared for a noisy atmosphere.

    This restaurant looked trendy and was very retro and upbeat inside. Our waitress was fabulous, the food was ok. My husband had bang bang chicken and it wasn't good nor were the vegetables fresh. My son ordered plain spaghetti noodles, sent them back twice. However, I ordered the rogue burger and it was excellent, with yam fries, I ate every bit, excellent! The dessert was excellent as well and my son also ordered the chicken tenders, they were fab. The place knocked off compensation for our bad food but it's great for pub/bar type food.

    While the location is very convenient to meet up with friends, the service was lacklustre to say the least. Took us forever to get our drinks, glasses of water, food etc. And then my cousin took one bite of her salad and found a piece of glass. The manager was extremely nice and comped the salad and gave the whole table free drink tickets but the service was so bad that all of us agreed we would definitely not be rushing back any time soon.

    Headed to Rogue for a Saturday lunch because I had a giftcard from Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised at their menu since it was not like that of the typical chain restaurant (Earl's, Moxie's etc). Ordered kale and quinoa salad and added steak, boyfriend had Bang Bang Chicken. Both dishes were delicious but more notably the kale quinoa salad. My boyfriend, who is a head chef and soon to be Regional Kitchen Manager for a pretty well-known chain was thoroughly impressed with the salad! He's a pretty tough critic too. Overall we had an excellent time at lunch. Nathan, our server was personable and gave great service. Would go back, even without a gift card.

    After being shown to our table we were compltely ignored for 15 minutes. Once our illusive server finally came to take our drink order it took 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive. A table next to us arrived, ate and were asking for the bill by the time our drinks came. The food is ok but nothing to write home about, the service is dismal at best. Skip this restaurant if you'd like a unique, tasteful, well serviced dining experience. The one redeeming feature about this restaurant: It's connected to the Skytrain and Seabus so you don't have to brave the legendary Vancouver rain to get here. For a party who was coming from Vancouver, Richmond, and North Van this was the perect meeting place. But truth be told, next time we'll brave the rain.

    My black cherry cosmo that night was bad. It was all ice-slushy and bland, and the black cherries were just pathetic. Like wrinkled raisin-sized lumps. For the price I paid ($8.99) I was incredibly disappointed. Our server was nice but busy. We had to wait a lot. I do not see any incentive to return. To be fair, my friends enjoyed their Bellini, and we were seated pretty quick. Nice atmosphere for group parties. Convenient location.

    This is one of my go-to's when meeting up with friends downtown. Mainly because the location is ideal for those taking transit, the wait on a weeknight is often small to none, and the food is consistently good.
