Diva at the Met Ratings and Reviews
For Christmas Day I booked in advance dinner for two at Diva at the Met. I was interested in their 5 course Christmas Dinner menu. The first course was Lobster Bisque which was very good and the subsequent courses got better and better. For the main we had the roast turkey which was so moist & tender. My husband had the wine pairing with each course. Overall the meal was excellent. We had Sam as our server and he gave very good service throughout the evening despite it being so busy. When we got there the atmosphere was a bit energetic but gradually calmed down as the earlier diners left. Had a look at their regular menu and we may comeback for brunch or dinner in the future.
Christmas dinner. The food was superb, but the giant screen TVs with football, loud chessy canned music and ear-splitting acoustics turned what could/should have been a night to remember into a night I'd rather forget. The chef's preparations were outstanding. Too bad we couldn't enjoy each others company along with food. Will not return.
The service was slow and they didn't seem to care.
Our server asked how I wanted my poached egg yolks done. I was given three options that I wasn't familiar with, so I said "Not runny, but not hard." She condescendingly said "So medium." They brought us runny yolks.
The food and coffee was pretty average. The mimosas were slightly better. Unfortunately I could not recommend here for any reason.
Overall, the food was good, service was good and the ambiance was good. There really wasn't anything that made me really want to go back. My pork chop dish utilized something called "sakura" pork, which I now translate to a regular cheap pork chop. It was overcooked and overpriced for what it was. If the restaurant reads this, maybe they can look up Berkshire pork or any of the numerous heritage breeds, as a regular grocery store cut shouldn't get a label like that and I would have paid an extra 4 or 5 dollars for a good cut. As for other dishes, the tasting menu shaves a little bit off the cost of the meal, but the portion size is much smaller. The only bargain on the tasting menu is the tenderloin (7 oz vs. 10 oz. on the regular menu), but who eats tenderloin these days? Overall, the sides were good, on par with any "fine dining" establishment. The service was good, our waiter was attentive to our needs, and we appreciated that. The overall ambiance is also nice, with a kitchen sort of central and mostly visible to the diners.
I probably will never go back, as there are so many better placed in Vancouver.
We arrived at 11:15am with our Open Table reservation only to be told that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes and that we had to leave in 30 minutes. We were never told about this before hand and we left as didn't want to be rushed. They should not be accepting reservations with only 30 minutes to be there. We were very disappointed as we were enjoying a staycation downtown. We have been to Diva at the Met before but will not be returning if this is how they treat their customers.
Unfortunately meal too salty to eat- replaced my meal with different one- but too rushed to fully enjoy as we had to go to concert. Waitress gracious but would have expected manager to speak to me. Have eaten there before and enjoyed but will choose somewhere else for a special meal next time.
I have been coming to Diva at the Met ever since Michael Noble was the Executive chef. It never disappoints. We had an excellent quiet table for guests from Victoria. All of us enjoyed the wine, appetizers, entrees and desserts. I had to tell my guests the story of the Stilton Cheesecake - I am glad to see that it is still available!
Very good location of the restaurant, close to shopping and entertainment. Food was very good and big portion too, good value for the price. Service was fantastic! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, for everyday dining, friends gathering or any special day.
I used to love coming here due to the low noise and the good food.
My latest business meal showed that the food has declined in quality and quantity.
Although we had a good business lunch, with low noise and good separation of tables, the food was distracting in its lack of appeal by all in our party.
Will have to find another location that makes business lunches both functional and enjoyable.
This was an average experience at a premium price. Service was fantastic and we were able to bring our own wine at a corkage fee of only $25. This was very reasonable and appreciated as the wine list was less than adequate for the quality of food that was suggested by the menu prices. Food quality was poor at the price point. A hotel restaurant experience adequate for guests of a 3.5* hotel. If you're visiting the city there are at least 5 places within a 3 block radius I would suggest before Diva. If you're staying at the Met and are too tired to leave the hotel then it will do. We asked the "concierge" on the way out if he could call us a taxi, he said we should walk around the corner and hail one. If you were to walk around the corner, there are a number of far better restaurants there.
We have enjoyed many memorable meals at Diva but this time did not live up to previous expectations unfortunately. The meals were good but not spectacular. The smoked black cod was a delicious piece of fish but seemed overwhelmed by the generous serving of mashed potatoes. One diner commented that the ribeye was only okay. Two of the group had the wine poached pear, fig and goat cheese salad and both were disappointed in the flavour of the pears.
Diva never disappoints. I love this restaurant - everything from the location, food, service, ambiance, décor. I don't have enough compliments. Always a good experience and will always consider Diva for business meals and to entertain my out of town guests.
Ordered steak, quality of the meat was definitely great. Portion was decently big. Asked for rare steak but got blue rare which was a little bit disappointing. Bf ordered prime rib dinner which was also nice. Bacon-infused caesar got me excited as I haven't seen it elsewhere and I am a big caesar fan. I was hoping they would have goat-cheese souffle but got the dark chocolate souffle instead as that was on the menu during my visit.
this place use to be great. it was dead on a saturday night are 8pm. server kept trying to top up our sparkling water with flat water, waiters and chefs kept bantering and wine tasted like the bottle was open in the fridge way too long. it is sad to see this place drop so badly. I will not go back or recommend
The two of us enjoyed a really good meal, with friendly & quick service, in early March at this restaurant in the Metropolitan Hotel. Dinner was a very pleasant late sitting. I ordered the sea scallops for starter (one of the best i have tried) and tortellini for main while my husband enjoyed the pumpkin soup and 10oz ribeye, which was cooked medium as requested and very tender. Prices for food and drinks were quite reasonable and the ambience was cheerful, with lots of people coming and going, as you would expect in a good hotel restaurant.
