                                                    Music was too loud making it very difficult to talk but otherwise great experience. Staff were very attentive, quick with service, pleasant.

                                                    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 :(

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!

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.

                                                    Too hot. Extremely uncomfortable in the space and music was really to loud to have a conversation.

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.
