Great cocktails and fun atmosphere. While the 2 hour time limit is completely understandable it is hard to get used to especially when you are a having a fun night out with friends.

Loved the diamond. The waiter was so amazing he got a sense of what we wanted and brought us the perfect cocktails tailored to the flavors we were looking for. We also had the charcuterie board which was delicious! The music is a little bit loud, but overall the vibes were great!

Service was slow but very nice and helpful. Music was truly bad and imo unfitting for a cocktail bar. Same with a lack of dresscode... people dressed very poorly but then again that's Vancouver

Awful!!! Made reso, and had to modify but could not on open table (the diamonds choice). Tried the listed phone number and the line was discontinued. Even on the day of at the appropriate time, no call was made to me for follow up. Horrible service and a broken system.

They only gave us an hour and a half to enjoy drinks and food. They told us 20 min before the time was up that the next party was about to arrive. I expect at least 2 hours (like most other venues) and this completely ruined the evening. I always wanted to try the Diamond and this was my first time, never coming back again.

Amazing experience except because of the Covid restrictions, they should turn the music down slightly. It was super hard to hear our server over the noise with her mask on. Other than that - incredible experience as always!! ❤️

Host - lovely
Our waiter - absolutely awesome
Service - very good
Cocktails - unreal GOOD :)

Covid 19 safe feeling... uh, not a super safe feeling

The cocktail bar is super cute with great ambiance. We arrived early and felt safe and well looked after however as the place filled with Millennials mostly, who hugged and gathered in close quarters, unmasked, we very quickly felt unsafe.

There were, in our opinion, way too many people in there to possibly stay safe.

Go early, get out early. Order the Old fashioned.

This was the loudest, most outrageously expensive, unfriendly accommodating , poor services bar I’ve ever been to. We couldn’t hear ourselves talk, the drinks are so overpriced, we waited 15 minutes before even getting water. I will never bring another client here,
Come back myself or recommend it.
