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.

Such warm welcome and attentive service from David, made our experience extra special. We have tried the chicken liver parfait which was delicious. My friend had their signature Burger - to die for! and I had the mussels - mmm they were so juicy and flavorful! Kudos to the the kitchen team, nailed it on all fronts!
Nice and cosy spot, with a family feel, staff was really friendly and personable.
Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

Overall experience is just average. Not a place I would go out of my way to eat at. Another average and non-creative menu.

Caesar, ling cod and butter tart were stellar. They didn't give me a complimentary birthday dessert even though I have brought 12 people 2 tables of 6 regularly for happy hour.

Celebrating our daughter’s engagement and felt the ambiance was fitting-lively and fun. Overall the food was okay but I ordered the special, a bolognese pasta, which was served lukewarm and in my opinion, a little greasy and uninspired. My daughter’s pasta was also lukewarm but the taste was good. Small portions for both. I think everyone else enjoyed their meal, no one said one way or the other.

Wow, most of the reviews talk about the excellent, "attentive" service, but what they fail to mention is the aggressive up-selling.. every time the server checked in with us, it was another glass, another appie, etc.. EVERY DAMN time... at some point, wouldn't you think that "okay, this couple just wants dinner and then its a quick cover and the table is turned. it's not like we were super demanding (at all) and were trying to have some "us" time...

food was very tasty - wine was delish, our blonde English server just needs a wee bit o' coaching...

I really enjoyed my dinner at Homer Street Cafe and Bar. The appetizers we got were delicious and the drinks were great as well. The chicken was a little bit salty for my liking but I tend to like my food a little bit bland. Overall great experience!

Overall the food was quite tasty, but some missed the mark of an truly delicious restaurant. The dessert in particular was disappointing. I believe that other restaurants might offer better value.

That being said, this is a great restaurant to come to with a group. Everyone can eat well and on a per-person basis the cost is more reasonable. There are also great sharing options, notably the chicken. The service was also excellent (very friendly) and the atmosphere was lovely: Great music and aesthetically decorated.

Service was responsive and friendly. Delightful, casual-chic-lively atmosphere both indoors and outdoors. The beef lunch entree had an odd, almost gamey flavour: wouldn’t recommend that dish, but the salads and service were lovely!

Made a reservation and requested outdoor seating but was told they could not guarantee an outside table. We showed up 10-15 mins early to try and secure an outside table. Staff was very accommodating and did everything to seat us safely and in a timely manner. Our server and others were all exceptional. Value was ok but pricing is a bit high - mashed potatoes for $12 seems excessive. Food tasted wonderful

We had all the specials and they were excellent. Pork with farro risotto, squid caesar salad and warm caramel bread pudding. Very comfortable and calm on the patio. Service was always pleasant and courteous though one server seemed a little awkward delivering cocktails and dishes -maybe a little more practice? A lovely and delicious evening overall .
