                                                      Cute upstairs bar, decorated in a fun way. The drink selection is great. The small plates dishes were absolutely fantastic. The ambient music is too loud to be able to have an in-depth conversation (maybe I'm just too old), but featured a cool eclectic playlist.

                                                      Drinks are overpriced but definitely tasty, $23 for a margarita is kind of ridiculous

                                                      It was fun as always and a beautiful setting...but when did they make the music volume so loud? I couldn't hear my friend at all and the reason I like the Diamond was that there wasn't pounding tunes drowning out my company. That is the one note I have, otherwise the food and drinks are top knotch!

                                                      Meat and cheese apps were delicious but wish there was some other veg options or warm food options.

                                                      I really like this place, my only complaint would be noise. It could be a really nice speak-easy vibe on weeknights where conversation could be higher priority; weekends could be higher energy, louder, etc. Food was awesome, cocktails were great, service was on point.

                                                      Too expensive. Also charges $5/person to make a reservation. Not worth it.

                                                      Extremely loud music, to the point of hurting my ears. We arrived at 6:30 and by 7 the music was so loud we had to shout to hear each other across the quite small table. Then the music was turned up 2 more times before 8pm. You might expect to have to yell in someone's face in a nightclub but the Diamond is a sit down cocktail bar. We left early because we were both very uncomfortable and frustrated. Used to love coming to the Diamond :(

                                                      We didn’t eat but everything was great. We loved our server, thank you! Music was a bit too loud but the drinks and atmosphere were very nice.

                                                      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.

                                                      This joint is hip and really fun. Great DJ spinning music and the cocktails were delicious.

                                                      Wonderful service, fantastic drinks! A bit loud though, it would be nice for it to be a little quieter.
