Our experience was amazing! We go to The Diamond every year for our anniversary, and this year was by far our best! Our server (I didn’t catch his name :( ) was incredible! Super friendly and accommodating, recommended amazing cocktails and just gave us such a memorable night. Thank you!

Our server was incredibly knowledgable about all their cocktails & types of alcohol. The ambiance was amazing, it's an absolutely beautiful room & you feel like your in New York City.

The atmosphere was great and our server was also lovely and had a real personality. The drinks on the other hand were not great this time. Normally done well. Other than that everything was great.

Perfect classy summer cocktail spot! Amazing cocktails, fun ambience, classy upscale feel with a casual summer vibe overlooking the rest of gastown. The open windows on a hot day made it feel like we were on a patio. Super friendly servers and the bartender was open to making new drinks if you told them what you like - felt very personalized and sophisticated. Will 100% go back!

The food and service is good~ And the atmosphere is calm and wonderful. The place is lively.
I wish there was more on the menu that was on the site. There were little dinner choices even thou my friends and I enjoy the mac and cheese and bread.

The cheese platter are amazing. Warm Olives are also mind blowing. This is one of the most fascinating bar which also providing amazing food.
Servers are general super friendly and helpful. They are fully knowledgeable about the menu, and gave me useful advice when I’m a bit overwhelmed by the cocktail selection.
The place became super busy after 7pm, so we had a hard time to get our bill. This might be the only down side which could be improve.
Overall, this is the best bar I have been in Gas town. Perfect for a girls night or date.

I've been to The Diamond before for drinks but hadn't stayed for dinner. Let me tell you something: it's fantastic. The menu doesnt have many items, but they are great. Also, I highly recommend the mousse for dessert!

We went for my sisters 40th birthday and it was absolutely fantastic! The way that they “team serve” is amazing, you never have to feel like you were out of place if you need something to your table. Food was fantastic, well seasoned, perfectly portioned, and arrived in a nice succession. Well done there!

This was an amazing discovery for us. Definitely not your typical cocktails - these tenders like to MIX it up when you let them and they really know their stuff. I really enjoyed discovering new ways to enjoy great bourbon! The room has a real New Orleans look and the place was hopping. Their hidden speakeasy was much quieter than the main lounge. Glad we had reservations.

The atmosphere of the place was really cool, the service was great and our drinks were unbelievably good. The food wasn’t as good as we expected for a bar, maybe next time we’ll try something else and give the menu another chance. (The chorizo pizza was amazing though)

We’re charged regular price for drinks put in at happy hour. During a toast to a friend, a server came over and advised us to “keep it down and not disrupt” as we apparently were loud, which was interesting as the bar itself was loud and we were simply toasting to a congratulatory beverage for a friends accomplishment before we were quickly hushed. Prior to this we were not disruptive. Overall, was an odd experience and staff was not very friendly

Phenomenal venue! We visited while on vacation and this was hands down our favourite spot in Vancouver! Great views of Gastown, amazing cocktails, excellent ambience and service, and the pre fixe menu was generous and affordable. If we’re ever back in the area, we’ll definitely return to The Diamond!

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
