We were here for drinks before a birthday dinner elsewhere. Excellent cocktails. Great room. Service was solid. A great start to a great night!

The food and service is good~ And the atmosphere is calm and wonderful. The place is lively.
I wish there was more on the menu that was on the site. There were little dinner choices even thou my friends and I enjoy the mac and cheese and bread.

The cheese platter are amazing. Warm Olives are also mind blowing. This is one of the most fascinating bar which also providing amazing food.
Servers are general super friendly and helpful. They are fully knowledgeable about the menu, and gave me useful advice when I’m a bit overwhelmed by the cocktail selection.
The place became super busy after 7pm, so we had a hard time to get our bill. This might be the only down side which could be improve.
Overall, this is the best bar I have been in Gas town. Perfect for a girls night or date.

I've been to The Diamond before for drinks but hadn't stayed for dinner. Let me tell you something: it's fantastic. The menu doesnt have many items, but they are great. Also, I highly recommend the mousse for dessert!

We went for my sisters 40th birthday and it was absolutely fantastic! The way that they “team serve” is amazing, you never have to feel like you were out of place if you need something to your table. Food was fantastic, well seasoned, perfectly portioned, and arrived in a nice succession. Well done there!

This was an amazing discovery for us. Definitely not your typical cocktails - these tenders like to MIX it up when you let them and they really know their stuff. I really enjoyed discovering new ways to enjoy great bourbon! The room has a real New Orleans look and the place was hopping. Their hidden speakeasy was much quieter than the main lounge. Glad we had reservations.

The atmosphere of the place was really cool, the service was great and our drinks were unbelievably good. The food wasn’t as good as we expected for a bar, maybe next time we’ll try something else and give the menu another chance. (The chorizo pizza was amazing though)

Incredible cocktails

Server seemed irritated/unfriendly/condescending didn’t make eye contact - dampened the energy but still a great place

We’re charged regular price for drinks put in at happy hour. During a toast to a friend, a server came over and advised us to “keep it down and not disrupt” as we apparently were loud, which was interesting as the bar itself was loud and we were simply toasting to a congratulatory beverage for a friends accomplishment before we were quickly hushed. Prior to this we were not disruptive. Overall, was an odd experience and staff was not very friendly

Phenomenal venue! We visited while on vacation and this was hands down our favourite spot in Vancouver! Great views of Gastown, amazing cocktails, excellent ambience and service, and the pre fixe menu was generous and affordable. If we’re ever back in the area, we’ll definitely return to The Diamond!

I picked The Diamond for my bachelorette dinner before seeing the Backstreet Boys at Rogers Arena. The staff was so chill throughout our time there! They helped me secretly cover the bill. I thought their prix fixe menu was perfect for our group of 7. I enjoyed the chorizo and cheese flatbread, sea urchin orzotto with prawns AND their short rib, along with the chocolate cake

Caters to a specific crowd. Wait staff assume you have been before and therefore are not forthcoming with drink or food specials. Meals arrived at different times and could not be enjoyed together

Lots of whacky drinks for those who don’t like alcohol, but are determined to get some down anyway, at fairly steep prices. A quite good stock of bottles if you ask for the list, at quite reasonable prices. Great service. Limited food options served in embarrassingly small portions, slowly and often no longer hot. Maybe there’s potential, but I’d say meet up here for a drink before dinner down the block.

I’ve come here before around dinner time (6-8 pm) and have had a great time. However, on Wednesday at 7:30 pm the music was so loud I could barely hear the server asking me what kind of water I’d like. It wasn’t even dark outside, yet it felt like the inside of a nightclub...

When I asked why the music was so loud the server said “that’s how it is here.” It wasn’t like that a month ago when I was there for a friend’s birthday, so was there a change in management? If so, wrong decision. Terrible choice to have the ambiance of the room negate the ability to have a meaningful conversation over drinks. My date and I left very shortly after sitting down and I can safely say I will not be returning until this changes.

My favourite place in the city for cocktails. Great ambience and attentive service. Cocktails are tasty and well balanced. The new menu is a bit eclectic for my taste but I’m sure it’s delicious.

It seemed like they were doing us such a big favour accommodating a couple extra people. They have no telephone number and I emailed them but was told to email Open Table next time. It felt like I kept getting instructions on how to behave and less like an experience. But mistakes happen so I let it go whatever. However then we got 2 servers who didn’t smile and reprimanded us when we suggested our drinks got taken away. We didn’t want free drinks we were just saying we didn’t want our stuff taken away. Overall the drinks are amazing and the staff needs to brush up on their service skills.
