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.

    Homer St. Cafe is lively and energetic which makes it fun to go to. However, with the energy and liveliness comes incredibly loud music. For us it would have been impossible to talk to each other. We did get a table outside though and that worked just fine. The food was a big disappointment. I ordered a Cobb Salad. Unimaginative with unpleasant and strong flavours that did not work together. Too skimpy on the chicken and avocado. I'm pretty sure the bacon bits were out of a jar. My dining companion ordered the ribs; he found the pork fatty and was not pleased to see the use of ketchup. These are the reasons we found it poor value. Very pricey for what we received.

    The Homer St. Cafe & Bar has been a Yaletown staple for many years. After last summers management change its better than ever! The atmosphere is lively and energetic; the perfect way to spend any night downtown. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly & professional while ensuring you're doted on for the perfect night out. The menu is to die for and the bar list is top class. I wouldn't hesitate recommending the Homer St. Bar & Cafe to anyone.

    I usually love coming to Homer Street Café, but on this occasion, the restaurant was extremely loud, mostly due to the kitchen staff. The food was as good as it always is, but I noticed that the menu didn’t have the usual daily specials. There was only one feature and the rest were drink specials.

    The food was great. No complaints. When it came time to pay our bill it was messed up so badly. Unlike anything I have ever experienced. There were three couples. We clearly told the server to split the bill by couple. Every bill was messed up. Every time they tried to redo it it was messed up more. Overall it took us three minutes to get our bill straight and we were late for the event that we had tickets to which was very disappointing given we asked for our bill 20 minutes before we had hoped to leave.

    One of the best meals we've had at a restaurant in a long time! Chicken wing appies were fabulous, burgers with fries were a 5 star hit, the Full Monty Rotisserie platter was amazing and desserts were all gobbled up! We had visited New York City in April and enjoyed several meals at up scale restaurants but none were at the same consistent caliber as Homer Street in terms of freshness, flavour and just plain good food. We will definitely be back.

    The food was good & attractively presented. I booked a table on Monday for Wednesday & was seated at the bar area (wasn’t advised at time of reservation that this was only option) The tables were placed extremely close together. Initially service was good but we had to wait 20 minutes for dessert and did not have any time to eat them as we had to leave for a show. Had a much better experience at Oak West.

    Not the foodie spot it once was, but still a fair choice for everyday dining. Busier and noisier than ever, more focused on alcohol than dining.

    Decent food, slightly greasy and soggy mushrooms and the pork jowl was too chewy and over seasoned. The roast chicken was very good, well seasoned and cooked. Would have liked a crisp skin but it wasn’t. The side salad was very disappointing, fries were good. Less than half a creamer of chicken jus was served with a whole chicken. Definitely not enough and was charged $4 for half creamer. Butter tart was ok, the crust was quite chewy. Overall decent meal

    Since we entered the restaurant there was a strong smell and we came back home with that smell in our clothes. Obviously, they have a ventilation problem. The music was too loud and the food wasn’t good. I don’t think I am going back to this place.

    Loved the foods and service overall. But was not impressed with the hostess and their seating policy. We made a reservation and I was late by 25 mins. They would not let my friend seated until I arrived. My friend could’ve easily had two cocktails while waiting but they didn’t let her in. She had to wait outside. Not sure what is the point of reservation if you can’t be seated at your time even even if your other party is running late. Did not help that the hostess was not super friendly and giving attitude about it. But foods were great and our server was lovely.

    Ambience is good and so are the drinks. We ordered the Burger and Lamb leg. The burger was good but the Lamb was not. It was okay but nothing in comparison to their Lamb shank which they discontinued in the summer.

    The only frustrating part is the last two reservations I made were for the counter as that’s are favourite spot… both times we showed up and they had given away our spot.. including last night. I don’t get what the point of reserving through this app is if it means nothing?
