Fusion / Eclectic
Bringing together the distinct flavors of regions in Asia, Europe, the Americas and beyond, The Rise Eatery pushes boundaries of culinary ingenuity.
Guests reap the rewards of Executive Chef Dan Leung’s limitless imagination and 15-plus years of cooking experience. The global fusion offerings celebrate the ethnic diversity of Vancouver. We’re one of the few, if not only, places in town where France greets South Korea, Japan meets Italy, and Taiwan welcomes Mexico with open arms on a plate. Crafted with locally sourced ingredients and prepared in a way that’s meant to be shared, our menu encourages an exploration of global tastes, techniques, and cultures. Equally innovative items are served at lunch and creative brunch items are served on Saturdays & Sundays. Dining experiences in our modern, spacious room or on our hidden patio during warmer months are fun without falling lax, sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Careful steps for safe service post-pandemic are also in pl

I think they all taste good
But the iron steak, the meat smells. Not sure if that’s the intention.

I was really looking forward to brunch at Rise again. Unfortunately, the breakfast ramen was really salty, so it was hard to enjoy. My friends and I also found the eggs were overcooked (poached was fully cooked, omelette was overcooked, sunnyside eggs were okay). The truffle potatoes were great.

“Renaissance” brunch menu item was not super tasty to be honest. Eggs were good but other than that I wasn’t satisfied even though it was a large portion.

We didn’t finish the appetizer and the server already put the mains on the table. And then it happened again with the dessert. We felt very rushed to finish the meal. At dessert, he didn’t even take away the dirty dishes before giving us clean plates for dessert. Our reservation was 8pm and they close at 10pm.

The food was innovative, but not remarkably good. We were still having conversation and finishing up dessert, and the waiter did tell us about the last order, and came back a few moments later telling us they are closing in 10 minutes (implicitly asking us to leave). This is not something I would expect in an upscale restaurant, and it surprised me.

We went with two other couples and ordered a bunch to share. Favorites were the uni-versal pasta, the pork tenderloin (holiday menu), heart attack fried rice and the friend chicken appetizer. I did not love the shad thai and my husband said the steak was very ordinary. I was really looking forward to the Boba Coma dessert but it was a big let down. The tapioca pearls inside were really hard and not edible! Overall I found it to be just a bit pricey for the food you get. We paid about $50 each plus tax and tip (I only had one non-alcoholic beverage and my husband had one beer). The service was great though and we enjoyed our night out.

This was an amazing culinary experience. The food is thoughtfully and creatively put together. Even the names of the dishes were whimsical and appropriate for fusion of the cultures. With each dish you could taste the complimentary layers of flavours. The desserts were amazing and clearly Asian influenced because they were not too sweet or heavy. Their bartender was able to create new experiences for the diners with their unique blends of cocktails. Service was attentive and patient… our dinner party ended up staying till closing because of the awesome environment the place provided to carry on our celebration and socializing… definitely a place we would return to… we want to go try out their brunch menu 😊😋next.

I am very fond of thus place. The room is airy and spacious, with pleasant understated decor. The menu is small, with a slightly incoherent theme, and not suited to obligate carnivores. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food. Wine list is small with a heavy emphasis on local wine. Hard to construct a multicourse meal outside of some small combos on the menu. If you fund a dish that suits you, you will probably like it s lot. Service was challenged by the post pandemic labor shotage, but they really tried

still absolutely love this place! The Rise is one of the best Asian Fusion restaurants in Vancouver in my opinion. I've been here many times before for their happy hour, as they used to have a Yelp check in deal for BOGO cocktails. However, last night I returned for a dinner date with my boyfriend as he has never been here before but I've been raving about it so much. We were able to get a reservation on Open Table but it was a pretty quiet night. Our server, Helen was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable when it came to the menu and reccomendations. She was so friendly, delightful and attentive, checking in with us multiple times during our evening. We started with some drinks but did not want any liquor so we got the "Life's A Peach" mocktail and it was definitely up our alley, as we love peach flavoured drinks, it tastes like a sparkling iced tea. Everything here is family style with sharing plates which I absolutely love since my boyfriend and I already eat like this at every other restaurant, to start we got the Chicken Seoul Good and the Heart Attack rice. The Chicken Seoul Good was absolutely delicious with the truffle mushroom cream sauce, it paired really well the the batter on the chicken was so crispy. The Heart Attack Rice is one of my favourites already, the flavours are out of this world and it reminds me of Nasi goreng. For the bigger shared plate, we got the Uni-Versal Pasta XO Edition which I haven't tried before and we were so excited since we've both never had squid ink pasta. We decided to add the local sea urchin for an extra $7.50 and it was so worth it. The squid ink pasta dish consists of sea urchin cream, a free run egg yolk, house xo sauce sauteed prawns, fish roe and toasted seaweed. All I can say is this dish is the definition of umami. The fish roe and sea urchin cream tasted amazing together and it has this delicious smokiness from the xo sauce. The prawns were sauteed to perfection and so juicy and flavourful - this dish is worth the

Ordered two items and am extremely disappointed.

Hog-It, bland and doesn’t taste of anything. Sauce had no flavour, pork you can only taste smoke.

Taste of Ramen, this was the opposite of bland. This is the saltiest ramen I’ve ever tasted in my life. No flavour other than butter and salt. Beef bacon was extremely salty, and the egg was way to sweet.

Server refused to do anything to our bill and never came and asked again. Will never come back again.

Cuisine was good and everybody enjoyed the tasting dishes. I have dined there many times prior to Covid and aware of the loud noise level. Luckily we were one of 2 tables there, but I feel we should have had been distanced from the other table. There were no other guests in the entire restaurant! Why were we seated immediately next to a table of 5 ladies and my table had 6 people? Their loud conversation carried over to our table and it was difficult to hear because of the acoustics in that venue.

Our waiter was the only server working 2 tables, but he neglected to refill our wine or water glasses. Had to be asked to refill the water pitcher for our table. He brought the dishes in good time but did not explain what they were until we asked for a description (we ordered about 8 dishes) of what we were about to eat.

Our guests were F&B people from Germany and we were anxious to impress them with some unique cuisine. I believe they enjoyed the meal, but there was room for some improvement.

Am glad this gem survived Covid and we will return in future to support Wanda and Chef Dan.
