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.

                                                  Honestly, other than our server, everything was VERY good!! Would recommend in a heart beat. His table service was poor, rung in our food incorrectly and forgot the table next to ours drinks. Everyone else’s service (Host, other servers, etc) was impeccable so I feel like he was a miss-fit rather than a reflection of the restaurant. Will be going back.

                                                  We sat upstairs and it was noisy and there was not enough space between the tables. Food was excellent. Liked the way it was plated. Would request a table on the patio next time.

                                                  The food quality is less then adequate for a restaurant that is often talked about and mentioned on the Vancouver restaurant scene The Artic char was over cooked and the chards were tough and very salty

                                                  Food is mediocre, service was excellent. Drinks are okay as well. Good for the value, but if you are in downtown Vancouver, there are better choices.

The gentleman..(i wish i new his name) ran after us and found us at the corner to hand the container. I want to give him a shout out. That man redefined customer service..well done buddy.

                                                  Homer St Cafe is a nice restaurant with a great ambience. My partner and I got the Arctic Char and Rotisserie Lam Leg and they were both delicious!

                                                  Overall experience was good. Food and service was fantastic despite a very busy Sunday afternoon. The only detractor from our experience was the noise level, made worse by volume of the techno pop soundtrack pumped through the speakers. The friendly staff and in particular, our server that day, made it an overall good experience.

                                                  I was a little bit turned off with the wine gentleman would only give us one sampler before we ordered a whole bottle. I can understand if I was ordering a glass, but I made it very clear we were buying a bottle. This was odd, never have I ever have to explain myself asking for a small sampler regardless of a glass or bottle. Our server made up for our experience.

                                                  Upon arrival for a 7:00 pm reservation, I was told I would not be seated until my guest arrived and to wait outside. Numerous tables were unoccupied. The hostess was haughty and rude. My guest arrived 5 minutes late. Then we were told we had to vacate our table by 9:00 pm. We avoided ordering coffee and dessert. The noise in the restaurant made it almost impossible to hear each other. I will not be back and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
