    Not bad but not as good as what I read about. For charging a 5 dollar per person booking fee you would think it would be fancier and more upscale.

    Great place to go with friends and have one of the amazing cocktails. The service was excellent. I went there because it came up on some reviews that this place is one of the best place for a date, but I found it very loud once as it got busy and not ideal for a first date. But in all, a great place if you don't mind a loud place :)

    The cocktails were fantastic, and the meat/cheese boards really hit the spot. Be prepared to spend a little money, otherwise it's a definite recommend.

    Great service - reliably good fun drinks. Fun atmosphere in a great ol brick historic building. With all the trendy cocktails out there these days, it would be great to see some added drinks or ones with a twist!

    Way too loud to carry on a conversation. The drinks were meh. Nothing knocked us out of this world. The cheese and meat board were good. Great space but seems to be surviving on its history.

    I think it would be helpful with booking if it indicated the option of sitting at the Diamond or at Hideaway. I booked a table for my birthday but was saddened to be seated at Hideaway, instead of the Diamond in which I booked for.

    I've only really had some snacks here (which have always been good) because I come for the drinks (which are great). Even during COVID I enjoyed this place. The Diamond is definitely a little gem in Gastown.

    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.

    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!

    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.
