I had the curry which barely had any spice in it, and the service was poor. Sadly Diva used to be a good restaurant but has dropped in caliber. They need to do a lot to elevate both the food and service.

We very much enjoyed our drinks & dinner on Saturday night. A well thought out menu, with some varied choices, excellent food, & great service - we shall return!

Not as good as before, but it could’ve been an off night. Service is always great.

Diva has a new chef and new menu since our last visit. It still is a good restaurant, with very good service, but is more casual, catering it seems more to the hotel guests, and not quite as good as a destination restaurant. However very good value still.

Got to our reservation early, was sat near the door and a TV during an intimate Valentine's Day. Not a good way to start the date. We asked to be moved and the wait staff and host made a big deal about us wanting to move, meanwhile the restaraunt was maybe one third full.

The service was not good, our server consistently asked other tables if they wanted drinks, but not ours. Each table recieved a lovely pair of chocolate covered strawberries and a rose before their bill came. But of course, not ours. We had such high hopes and although our server was really lovely while at our table, we just barely saw her and could not get her attention. It looked as though they were understaffed and she was just her ran off her feet. Perhaps the restaurant can confirm more staff for future events.

For their Valentines Day special, each meal was so lack luster in taste. The lobster bisque had one piece of lobster in mine and my spouse just had the broth. I had a pescatarian option for the dinner and was served a salmon fillet, tail end, absolutely hard as a well done steak, with carrots that had not even removed the ends. The set menu said tiramisu for dessert, it was red velvet cake that was bland and disguised as tiramisu!!

Will not return, would not recommend. After a bill of $210.00 before tip, this was by far the worst dinner we have ever had. For $86 per person for a set menu, the restaurant really should up their game!

Felt like an airport restaurant so atmosphere was blah... food was ok. Appreciate with dine out things can be mass produced .. meat was tender and tasty but mash potato was bland and dry. Pork belly was all fat which was disappointing

Worst experience ever. The food was below average - either too salty or tasteless. The waitress, Lyric (or May as stated on the receipt), was slow and rude.

Between each course, we had to wait 30-45min so the dinner took extra long. Whenever we try to wave her down, she would pretend that she didn’t see us and continue on serving other tables. The other tables that came later than us all finished way ahead of us - at least an hour ahead.

Then when it came to giving us the bill, she took another 30-40min while we tried to wave her down with no successful tries. When she finally came with the bill, we decided to give her less tips since she did not give us good service, it was when she brought the credit card machine over that she told us there’s actually auto gratuity and she charged the amount she didn’t deserve. We did not see anywhere that it stated the restaurant will charge 18% tips if we have a group of 6. It wasn't on the bill either; she just entered it on the machine and made us tap our cards. She should be properly train to treat all her customers the same. We felt like we were treated with bad attitude and service because she automatically gets the tips anyways.

DON’T GO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE TREATED POORLY.

Dinner out menu was delicious but pricey. Service by Felipe was excellent. Atmosphere was good but decor outdated.

We were sitting at the table at the back of the restaurant where was very quiet. We thought we were very lucky because we found it was very noisy at the front of the restaurant when we walked through there at the end of our dinner. I chose short rib and I loved it. It was very tendar and tasty. I loved the dessert I picked - sticky toffee pudding as well. I was very happy that I chose Diva at the Met.

The noise level was high and we (6) could not hear each other. If the Dine Out menu was a good sampling of your regular menu, it was disappointing. Food was only mediocre. Parking was not allowed for Dine Out, so had to park elsewhere on a very rainy night. Service was excellent and attentive, best part of the experience.

One of the worst Dine Out experiences I've had. Despite the restaurant being two thirds empty we were made to feel rushed and disrespected. Our meal was okay, not stellar. For a well established higher end restaurant DIVA did not meet any expectations. After getting in touch with the manager regarding our concerns after our meal his response did not address any of the points raised and did not leave me feeling that anything would change. Again I felt the DIVA does not value it's customers. We won't be going back or recommending to anyone. There are other much better restaurants that know the meaning of customer service that are worthy of our custom. The only thing big about DIVA was our disappointment.

I went to Diva with a friend for Dine Out. The food and service were excellent. The noise level was low and there were not TV screens everywhere. I would definitely recommend it.

My first time at Diva at the Met and really it's only a block away from my office. Great ambience and perfect for meetings. We were there having a business meal enjoying Dine Out Vancouver. Salad was perfectly tossed and not over dressed. Steelhead trout was 100% perfectly cooked. The accompanying vegetables were unfortunately not good. The cauliflower and spinach were raw, almost put on the plate as an afterthought. The toffee cake was perfect. All in all, a good meal. I would go back again.

I have eaten here numerous times and each time I have left full and very happy. Service is excellent, and it is a nice ambient dining space. Will return again and again.

Was expecting the same type of food as the last three years. Food was good but not the usual creative offerings.
