LOCALLY MINDED. RESPONSIBLY RAISED

Housed in two of Vancouver’s most iconic buildings, Homer St Cafe and Bar is a contemporary restaurant set in the historic Homer Building and new Beasley building in Vancouver’s Yaletown district.
Classic comfort cooking takes center stage thanks to a fire engine red rotisserie that roasts all manner of proteins. It’s chicken that’s the star here: served in quarter, half or whole portions, accompanied by classic sides basted in jus.
A decidedly adventurous wine and cocktail list rounds out the menu. The restaurant features two spaces that consist of an open concept kitchen “Chef’s Bar” where one can get up close and personal with the culinary team, a semi private dining room with reclaimed factory windows, and bespoke seating complemented by antique tiling.

Awesome food and great service, VERY attentive staff. My second time there and I will be back again, cocktails were perfect! I never order chicken at a restaurant because I make it so much at home, but I ordered it this time and it was so good, the au jus makes it (requested dark meat a few mins after I ordered and it was no problem). Everyone at the table (6 people) ordered different dishes, and everybody was very happy. Appetizers were fantastic too, the pork belly, hummus, and seafood corquettes were super tasty!

Also,I didn’t realize they have a patio until we left, next time!

We had a small family gathering and really enjoyed the service, food and nice ambiance. The charcuterie board was small, but tasty. We’ll definitely keep the Homer St. Bar and Cafe on our list of great places to meet for good food.

Everything was good, except I’m a bit disappointed that although I mentioned in my reservation that it’s for someone’s birthday, nothing was done to acknowledge this. Not even a small candle on a free dessert. Maybe this restaurant doesn’t care about ‘special occasions ‘.

It used to be better I’ve been here several times. Service was great, ambience is unique but the food menu and taste has deteriorated I left feeling unsatisfied and hungry after paying $70 for two people.

Homer Street Cafe is my favourite restaurant in Vancouver. It is where we take any out of town guests and it is where we do family dinners. Its beautiful and relaxed atmosphere and excellent food made from quality ingredients never disappoint. The service too is impeccable and friendly. We love the halibut, steak and rotisserie hicken dishes. HSC is great for brunches too.

My husband and I really enjoyed our first experience at Homer St Cafe & Bar. My husband said the rotisserie chicken is some of the best chicken he's ever had. My lamb dish was pretty good. Our cocktails were fantastic. I am a celiac so the fact that most of the menu was already gluten-free was awesome. We sat in the little raised room with the roosters on the wall, which was particularly nice once the noisy group of 6 left, as we were celebrating our anniversary, so we appreciated the intimate, quiet setting.

First time there and I was surprised at how chic it is inside. Reminded me of an authentic French bistro. The menu was interesting... the smells and the food were very yummy. The service was excellent and the value was terrific! We'll be back.

Food was great. Only gripe is, having informed the restaurant that we were celebrating an 80th birthday, and having asked them to make a bit of a fuss about this lovely older guy, nary a fuss was made. They did put a candle in his dessert, but that was it. Also, we had to stand and wait for 15 minutes and not because we were late. We were a bit early. I thought that given the age of the star guest, we could have been seated immediately. It was a 5pm res. and the place was mostly empty.

Unfortunately it was unusually noisy with a table of 6-8 loud patrons next to us. When they left they were replaced by another equally loud group! We realize that there is no way for the restaurant to control this however it made it difficult to visit with our friends and partially ruined the ambiance that we love.

We came for an early Easter dinner celebration. Had the Sole fillet and their famous rotisserie chicken. It was very good. The sole fillet was just ok, planned to have the Halibut BUT the actual menu did not have this anymore. Anyway certain items on the On line menu is different from the actual. Place was stuffy and it was a Saturday night, was crowded. Tables layout was quite close to each other so can/may be feeling congested. Had two soft cocktails, were very refreshing, did not order dessert as nothing special. Just chocolate pudding, peanut butter pie, tiramisu, did not have the lemon Curb as stated on the on line menu so we gave dessert amiss.
The daily fresh sheet/special were sold out so couldn't get to taste them. Overall a good dining place as many option available.

Not a great brunch experience:
Long wait for a table even with a lunch reservation that we were on time for.
Two of the five dishes ordered arrived either cold or Luke warm (quickly resolved, and with fresh eggs).
Nice room but the music is so loud.
Quality of espresso is disappointing.

We booked a table for 6, before a show on Granville street - and asked to be in and out in an hour. The team at Homer Street was great! Beautiful spot, delicious food, knowledgeable team - and we were all wrapped up in an hour. Will definitely return when we have more time to enjoy!

Great spot for a friends get together. Did not get to try the chicken as the server recommended the daily special. Meat was cooked well and just a tad bit under, but understandable as the window of perfectly cooked and still juicy is very small. Flavor wise the appitizers was good, the rotisserie pork rib was on the bland side and needed much extra sauce. Desert was decent by the books, and can benefit from having a more sophisticated touch.
