Diner Reviews
  • "This was a great place to have dinner and listen to blues. Darrell was a great host Adrean was sweet and awesome. They all made us feel very special. It was my husband birthday and Adrean brought a plate that had fantastic little desserts and even wrote out happy birthday in chocolate and raspberry. Wonderful time. Will definitely go again."

  • "Very good menu and really excellent service. Everything we ordered was yummy. The band led by P J Perry played two wonderful acoustic sets of stellar bebop jazz. We enjoyed our evening immensely and will be coming back."

  • "The Seventeen89 has opened with a twist, live music! You can enjoy your dinner, great seafood, and listen to Jazz on Tuesday and Blues on Fridays. A nice addition to the local music scene. The menu is wonderful for seafood lovers. Try the Fanny Bay oysters, you won't be disappointed"

  • "My wife and I visited 1789 for the fourth time in late June during the Jazz Festival. In addition to great music (Two Much Guitars), the food was outstanding. Owner Paul is a former fisherman and his chef does seafood beautifully. Our favourite is the crab-halibut puff pastry (easily split-able plus a salad or appy). Room is very comfortable (former Delilah's) and the staff are appropriately attentive. Jazz or blues most Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights when the focus is on the music and food, and less on conversation."

  • "I went to Seventeen89 because there was a jazzfest show happening and to celebrate my brother's birthday. It was fantastic! The food was delicious and the sound level was perfect. I will definitely be coming back for some of their other shows and to enjoy a wonderful meal."

  • "The menu looks great as does the wine list. Lots of wines by the glass. We simply shared appies which were fabulous as was the list of of $3 "appy" desserts. Lots of chices and lots of great flavours."

  • "I went to Seventeen89 to see a band in the Jazz Festival. I enjoyed the fine dining style considering the reasonable prices, although not being a seafood fan there wasn't a lot on the menu that sparked my interest. I found the spring salad and the vegetarian potato cannelloni a bit bland, but my friend liked the fish and chips. I did appreciate the gluten-free options, and the house white was nice. The place had good acoustics for music and we enjoyed the show, so I think next time I would probably just go for the music, wine and dessert."

  • "The first brunch there was good but the second one was not good at all. My friend had to send her eggs back as they were undercooked. What's worse is that they were absolutely tasteless. When I left I suggested to the owner they have an option to pay more for an organic egg and he said all the eggs were organic. I was floored because of their blandness. The service is personable but the young girl isn't a server and things don't come together or else she has to be reminded. Also, there are two pieces of toast with the egg dishes we ordered but yet you have to pay 75 cents for a small dish of jam. The brunch itself is very inexpensive but since it's not good, we won't go back again."

  • "We went for a jazz Fest event and the music and ambience was lovely. The bar staff could use a reminder to keep their noise level down when the band is playing...particularly when it is a quiet song.... Unfortunately our a Open stable registration reservation that we made and had a confirmation for was not received by the restaurant do we had to sit uncomfortably at the bar. If you want to reserve call rhem directly."

  • "Seventeen89 is my new place to go for listening to fantastic jazz/blues and eating excellent food. We went with a group of friends and were treated to a wonderful evening out. The quality of the musicians we heard exceeded our expectations. However, what surprised us even more was the quality of the food. Each dish was outstanding. Great service too. I am definitely coming back to Seventeen89."

  • "We went to Seventeen89 as part of the Jazz Festival. We have not been there before and were pleasantly surprised by the great selection of seafood. The fried Fanny Bay oysters are a must. Probably the best I have had. The mains were just as good. Jazz was great and while we listened, Chef came around to the tables throughout the night to welcome and inquire how our meal was. Overall a wonderful night out. The only negative were people who missed the memo that said keep talk to a whisper and felt they had to compete with the music to be heard."

  • "Good food, comfortable seating, jazz on Tuesdays and blues on Fridays - a very good addition to the neighbourhood. We were there on a Friday, and the place was doing a land-office business. One hopes that there is sufficient business on the off-nights to keep things going. Generally, the management seems to have done things right - the menu caters to all tastes, from comfort food to upscale dining, and with both small and large portions offered in some cases. I especially appreciated the mini desserts. A lounge license means that one does not have to eat, but can simply stop in for a drink."

  • "We chose Seventeen89 for a reunion of old friends and it fully met our expectations. The fish was great, and the fact that we got a fantastic deal on wine (Wine Wednesday) was an unexpected bonus. We sat in a booth which was great but for the fact that the guests on the other side had the annoying habit of banging on the partition. I am very much looking forward to coming back for a Jazz night with Cory Weeds!!!"

  • "A friend and I tried 1789 for Sunday brunch and enjoyed it very much. The food was good, well presented and the restaurant itself is lovely. Service was a little slow - the server was likely inexperienced. The music was perfect in style and volume. We would definitely go again and would recommend it."

  • "We followed Cory Weeds formerly of The Cellar Jazz Club to 1789. The marriage of Cory Weeds' talent and connections in the music industry to the amazing food and vibe of 1789 has made the one-hour trip for us to English Bay and the west end memorable every time and we always bring friends. "

  • "There are few places in Vancouver where adults can have a drink, good meal in a friendly atmosphere, & hear some great live music. Regrettably Cellar Jazz is gone but now I've discovered Seventeen89. Friday was my first visit to Seventeen89 & it was a pleasure. The location just off Denman is easy to get to by public transit. I was greeted warmly & received friendly service throughout. The food was good, with plently of variety on the menu. However, the real reason to go is the music - Jazz on Tuesdays & Blues on Fridays. The Harp Dog Brown Trio was playing & were the reason I made the reservation. Even if you are not a blues fan this group will capture your imagination & keep you humming all night. My next visit will be on a Tuesday."

  • "The food was the most delicious I have had in a very long time. We knew the food would be terrific because of Chef Nagata but we didn't know what kind of a time we would have at this restaurant which was new to us. It was terrific experience all round. It topped off my reunion in Vancouver with my sisters, in the best way possible."

  • "A guest from the Okanagan came with us for brunch. We had two mishaps associated with our guest which was unfortunate and NOT like any former experience I have had at Seventeen89. My breakfast and hers were mixed up and both had to be returned to the kitchen. By the time the orders came back my plate was nice and hot, but hers was cold. I didn't want to draw attention to it but she mentioned it to the waitress. There was no offer to remedy it, which I felt was unfortunate. It could have been done smoothly and to her satisfaction. "

  • "We were visiting Vancouver looking at college options and stumbled across reviews of Seventeen89. Made reservations for the same night and ventured forth. Staff was warm and welcoming, and answered all our questions. The ambience was fun with kind of a speakeasy vibe. I had the black cod, which was fabulous. Good martini as well. Everyone was very satisfied with their meal. The chef saw us to the door. Very personal service."

  • "We went to 1789 specifically because the Cellar Jazz had incorporated some jazz groups with the participation of the restaurant. Kudos to the owners of 1789 for giving it a try. But judging from the house on Tuesday night the place was almost full and the jazz was great. The meal was great and exactly as described. I had the beef. Excellent. My wife had scallops/prawns. Excellent. Our waiter was great and described things well and was prompt with every part of the service. But with just enough time between plates. All in all, a great dining and music experience. I hope they will keep it going."

  • "We went on a Tuesday night for the jazz because The Cellar Jazz is now closed. The music was great, greeted at the door, nice ambience, friendly staff, good food and we will definitely go again. Thanks. P. S. We were at the 'back' of the restaurant, furthest from the band but couldn't hear what Chris Davis (trumpet player) was saying. Maybe a microphone would be a good idea."

  • "Table of 5 - all meals were outstanding - The Risotto could have been warmer but taste? WOW The Haibut in Filo pastry was so amazing One diner thought the surft and turf steak was the best steak he has ever had (eats out weekly) You could cut it with a butter knife. Deserts were cheap and cheerful - just the right amount and just the right price $3.50 The wine list was affordable and great choices love this place! We will be back"

  • "If you are looking for fresh and original seafood this is your place. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our meals.Beautiful presentation, lots of fun and romantic at the same time. Atmosphere is very welcoming and I highly recommend 1789 for any occassion. Location is perfect for after the show or game, close enough for a short cab ride. Make sure some one in your party orders the crab cakes. Good martini selection as well."

  • "Went to 1789 for a Valentine's day dinner with my wife. Right away the decor and ambiance transports you back in time, imagining yourself in the 18th century at a quaint bistro. The waiter was polite, friendly, knowledgeable and fast. They had live piano music, which was perfect and very romantic. The food was outstanding, we had the sablefish and the surf and turf. Seafood was so nice and fresh, and prices were decent for a higher-end dining experience. All in all, a fantastic choice for whatever occassion!"

  • "Having a dairy allergy and having only the choice of the Valentine Day set menu, I thought I was going to be out an appetizer and desert as with most restaurants. To my amazement, upon telling the server, the kitchen was able to give me the appetizer with no dairy and also the desert was substituted with sorbet. Our server was attentive and it was a good experience. Food was great, the steak was not very flavorful and would not order it at this restaurant. Would repeat in the future."

  • "Service was superb food was perfectly cooked but the steak was a bad cut. But think it was the luck of the draw. Highly recommend this place. Will defiantly go back to try there regular menu as we had the set valentines menu."

  • "Food and service are exceptional. Check menu before you go to make sure this is how you like to eat. Entrees are too large for us. We used to love this decor when it was Delialahs...doesn't feel very hip now. Go for the food and share."
