The food was amazing! We love the ambiance! The cocktails were quite good! The service was bit slow but polite and friendly. Great for gatherings with friends!
We went for a work client celebration, it was a good choice. The drinks were delicious and our server was very helpful in food and drink selections.
I love the Diamond. It has such a great vibe, great service, great food and the best cocktails!!! Keep it up
Good gluten free selection and able to accommodate a dairy allergy. Everyone enjoyed their drinks. A lovely time!
Friends just got engaged
I picked The Diamond for my bachelorette dinner before seeing the Backstreet Boys at Rogers Arena. The staff was so chill throughout our time there! They helped me secretly cover the bill. I thought their prix fixe menu was perfect for our group of 7. I enjoyed the chorizo and cheese flatbread, sea urchin orzotto with prawns AND their short rib, along with the chocolate cake
The drinks were on point and the staff were super nice in recommending other locations we would like. The food was very good. A bit smaller, but having the courses and appetizers we left with a good value. Great and fun location
Good drinks. Terrible food. The worst service. Overall, super disappointing.
Excellent food and physical space. Great for people watching from windows too
Caters to a specific crowd. Wait staff assume you have been before and therefore are not forthcoming with drink or food specials. Meals arrived at different times and could not be enjoyed together
Amazing food. Great service. Cool location. Excellent for people with allergies (informed staff).
Lots of whacky drinks for those who don’t like alcohol, but are determined to get some down anyway, at fairly steep prices. A quite good stock of bottles if you ask for the list, at quite reasonable prices. Great service. Limited food options served in embarrassingly small portions, slowly and often no longer hot. Maybe there’s potential, but I’d say meet up here for a drink before dinner down the block.
Came for drinks and the place is amazing from the decor to the views to the staff. We were treated well and they had a great vibe. Worth checking out. Drinks were very creative too!
Great ambiance and service but the music was very loud! If you’re looking for a quieter cozy place for a drink, this isn’t it.
I’ve come here before around dinner time (6-8 pm) and have had a great time. However, on Wednesday at 7:30 pm the music was so loud I could barely hear the server asking me what kind of water I’d like. It wasn’t even dark outside, yet it felt like the inside of a nightclub...
When I asked why the music was so loud the server said “that’s how it is here.” It wasn’t like that a month ago when I was there for a friend’s birthday, so was there a change in management? If so, wrong decision. Terrible choice to have the ambiance of the room negate the ability to have a meaningful conversation over drinks. My date and I left very shortly after sitting down and I can safely say I will not be returning until this changes.
My favourite place in the city for cocktails. Great ambience and attentive service. Cocktails are tasty and well balanced. The new menu is a bit eclectic for my taste but I’m sure it’s delicious.
I always have a wonderful time here. The service is excellent!
It was a great evening but we found that the music was so loud that we felt we had to yell to hear one another
We had drinks only so ignore the good rating:) Great creative cocktails
Nice atmosphere and views. A little colder near the windows. Loved my jade statue cocktail!
It seemed like they were doing us such a big favour accommodating a couple extra people. They have no telephone number and I emailed them but was told to email Open Table next time. It felt like I kept getting instructions on how to behave and less like an experience. But mistakes happen so I let it go whatever. However then we got 2 servers who didn’t smile and reprimanded us when we suggested our drinks got taken away. We didn’t want free drinks we were just saying we didn’t want our stuff taken away. Overall the drinks are amazing and the staff needs to brush up on their service skills.
Best old fashion in town!
Funky space with creative, delicious share plates. Friendly and attentive staff. Highly recommend!
Lovely place and great cocktails. The service was friendly and attentive and we loved some of the dishes but a few we just OK
This is a great place for drinks and a really good vibe. Food is disappointing - appys and whatever they called mains were less than appealing on the menu, though not terribly priced. If you're looking for a vibrant lounge with off beat drinks then this is a great spot, just eat before or after your visit.
Good food and drinks.
Not a wise choice if you want to have a conversation but I’ll go back for girls night out
Great place to pre-funk or for a date! Fun atmosphere, great craft drinks and delicious small plates. Great music playing too.
Fantastic food, great atmosphere, every loved the food and cocktails. The don't have a phone number to contact for a change in reservations which is very odd and the music very loud took the whole ambience down a notch for us.
Hubby and I had a AMAZING experience at The Diamond-exceeded our expectations. Were there for over 2 hours and enjoyed every second with cocktails, food, view from our second story window, music, and ambiance. Their 48 hour short rib is to die for!
Reservations were made for a large party for a birthday celebration, but the seating did not accommodate the large group, which was communicated via email as well to ensure this would be a smooth process. Our guests had to wait outside as it was at full capacity, and couldn’t join our group till much later - which kinda defeats the purpose of having a reservation in place.
Ambience and food were okay otherwise, but was hoping this would’ve been a much smoother experience for a special celebration.
Great time. Almost burnt the place down with a fiery napkin but our server jumped in to save the day--and our date night. A+++ service
Just amazing !!!
This is our favourite place in Van it’s by far
Amazing food and cocktails in a special room overlooking Gassy Jack Square. Love this place! The food used to be more Japanese, but now it’s more gourmet comfort food and tapas, and it’s delicious!
Drinks are great. Food was tasty by very, very small portion sizes for the cost. It was also incredibly loud. Too loud. You could barely hear the people across the table from you.
We all had a fabulous time at the Diamond. The ambiance was wonderful and the view was spectacular. Only thing is we found the noise level a little loud as the night went on and harder to visit with each other. Other thing is I found the bar stools to be a bit high for the table and found myself slouching over to lean on the table. Other than that everything was wonderful!
Great service, great atmosphere. Great date spot.
Cocktails, food, and service was fantastic...can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful space in the heart of Gastown offering superb original covkyails.
