The Rise Eatery
Guests reap the rewards of executive chef Dan Leung’s limitless imagination and 10-plus years of cooking experience. Seasonally inspired menu items reflect and celebrate the ethnic diversity of Vancouver. We’re one of the few, if not only, places in town where Germany greets South Korea, China meets Peru, and Scotland welcomes Vietnam with open arms on a plate. Crafted with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and prepared in a way that’s meant to be shared, our menu encourages an exploration of global tastes, techniques, and cultures. Equally innovative items are served at lunch in sets and creative brunch items are served on Saturdays & Sundays. Dining experiences in our modern, light-filled room are fun without falling lax, sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Attentive service is also our top priority.
Brunch: Saturday - Sunday, 10:00am - 3:00pm
Happy Hour: Daily, 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Dinner: Tuesday - Sunday: 5:00pm - Late
Our group of 4 love the sharing plates. It made for a really fun and interactive after theatre matinee early dinner.
Amazing experience here as always. The food is always on point and comes with a twist. A lot of details that other places just don't do. I really like the ambiance of the restaurant. The space feels big, laid back and makes you want to stay long. I wish this place would get more publication!
The food flavours we're really good. We arrived after a big party had been seated so the food took longer than usual to come out but the server let us know in advance so that was okay as we were in good company. One of the first dishes we were served (shrimp dish) was one we didn't even order but we just let it go since it was already cooked and because we waited so long for food already. It wasn't something we would've ordered. We ordered a lot of dishes because we like variety so of course we had plenty left over to pack home. I was very disappointed with the service when packing our food. They basically dumped all our left over dishes together into same boxes so when we got home it was a big mishmash of food in a box. It basically ruined all the individual flavours of each dish. It's important not only to give a good experience in restaurant but also to leave a lasting experience when your guests leave. Just felt careless on their part. There were also a couple of other things that were overlooked by the service but overall food was good just service quality could improve.
Love the food and service. Very accommodating even to my picky eating son. Great place for a date as well. I have been there a few times now, still love it. Thanks, The Rise Eatery team.
Have to say that overall I was somewhat disappointed. I looked at menu online before I booked and one of the reasons I chose to book here was because they had ‘chilaquiles’ on their menu. This authentic Mexican breakfast dish is very hard to find. Sadly when I ordered it I was told that it was not available. I was very disappointed.
The ambience was great, as was the decor. A great spot for Father’s Day brunch with my family. I wish the service was on par. Despite being Father’s Day, it really wasn’t that busy however our food took over 35 mins to get to us from time that we ordered. In fact we had to ask about it as we were frustrated with the wait.
Overall I would probably give it another try to see if the next experience was different. The free dessert (on next visit) for the Dads in our party was a nice touch.
Awesome food and place. I would highly recommend ir
Pleasantly surprised by the inventive brunch menu!
Their ramen is a must try ! The noodles are chewy and the eggs are nicely done .
Good. Interesting menu
I just found out another place where I can take clients for celebratory dinners after we take possession properties. it was a busy week and we had just done possession for a new place for my clients and this is a good place. the salmon with edamame and miso was very nicely portioned-anything smaller and id be hungry. The lamb was fantastic. The portions were bountiful and it tasted great.
Beautiful setting and sure the patio is a big hit when the summer comes. Service was great and not intrusive. Owner came by to check on us and have a chat, which is appreciated. Food was fantastic with freshness and flavours priority. Squid ink and sea urchin spaghetti AMAZING!!!
Overall fantastic first experience and can't wait to go back to try more of their creations.
We stopped in here before going to the Stanley Theatre. Very creative menu, great service and casual atmosphere. We will be back!
The food was delicious and whimsical. The service was great!
We had brunch here during our trip to Vancouver. There were a few bigger groups which made conversation for the two of us a little difficult.
Food was lovely and service was also lovely.
Excellent and unique menu. Every bite was satisfying. Since it was our first time here our waiter took the time to explain the menu and tell us about the meals we were inquiring about. The ambience of the restaurant was also excellent. It's very open and spacious and we loved the wood slab tables!
Good place for brunch
$175 set menu was poorly designed. Only 1 meat option and 1 vegetarian option . 1 or the other.
3 oysters each, 4 canapes each, 1 scallop with a few pieces of ravioli, my husband had the steak as a entree. But because I don't eat beef my option was a cauliflower steak ... my entree was 1 inch thick cross section of 2 pieces of cauliflower. Food didn't taste bad and seemed fresh but by no means gourmet. Very disappointed and will not be coming back. Staff was super nice and friendly but does not make up for lack of a good meal.
Overpriced. Food was average. Presentation was good but for a dinner out on a Saturday evening, it was below average. Were put on a table near the stairs and felt like we were in a hallway. Had to ask them to put the heating on - people had their coats on. It did warm up and the service was good but very overpriced food. Salmon was over cooked. Wouldn’t go back.
Average for the price
We came at a time when the dine-out menu was served only. It has nice ambience and great service.
We had the duck confit and salmon dishes. They were alright. The appetizers were creative and placed on a ferris wheel - nice touch! We thought this place is 'okay' for dinner but might be better for brunch. We were told that the chef likes to push boundaries and serves a range of cuisines. A pleasant time. We will likely try another place for dinner though.
Went there for lunch. We ordered Seoul good and Poke . Poke is a bit disappointed. Seoul good is ok, not outstanding. However the service and environment is outstanding
Quiet Sunday evening and my first, but not last, visit. The place deserved to be crowded: the menu is great, everything cooked well to superb, service second to none. I hope my next visit the place is packed out- it deserves to be.
Anyone who wants a delicious *** dining experience without paying stupid prices....the Rise is a MUST!!!!
Great food and atmosphere. Service was also great. Highly recommended from one foodie to another
The Rise Eatery was the perfect venue for a date night, great ambience with an eclectic and modern and trendy feel. Overall, the food was very tasty and would definitely go again.
Very good service and excellent tasting food. I would come back. The matcha cheese tart dessert was an interesting creation so that may not be for everyone.
Very creative menu. Food quality is very good. Price is reasonable.
Haven’t had a bad dish here yet, and the service is always outstanding.
Overall was good, roast potatoes was excellent, however, coffee was luke warm whole time we were there and desserts we ordered were just so so.
This was my first time at The Rise and it was wonderful! Our server was very entertaining and the food was excellent.
Chef Dan and Wanda are creating an unmatched dining experience - if you want an amazing meal at a very realistic price - you MUST go....particularly if you like big bold flavours and a culinary adventure!!!
My friends and I went for dinner prior to going to a play. We all loved it. The food was delicious and innovative. The cocktails were fabulous. We had great service. We all said we would definitely go back.
I was in the area the next day and seriously thought about popping into The Rise for a bite to eat.
Good food mediocre drinks. Slightly uncomfortable chairs but nice decor. No complaints for service - good for groups I would say, they split up our bills nicely.
The food was hit and miss. The east-west combinations of some dishes really worked, like the pasta; others didn’t work at all and sat untouched by most of our party. I probably wouldn’t return since I would be wary about ordering meals and not enjoying them.
To say this place is 'hot and trending' is an understatement.
True attention to service with wait staff who remember you as if they served you yesterday the moment you walked through the door.
Ambience is stylish yet functional, with gorgeous hardwood tables and an open concept that still feels cozy.
What's the pull factor for me that ranks this place higher than most in this city of foodie delights? Hands down its the chef - Danny is a culinary genius, and I don't throw out that term often. Fusion got a bad rap before this guy came along; every dish is a winning experiment of textures and flavours, all under the umbrella theme of comfort food. Want to hit the ground running? Dynamic Duo with Brussel sprouts, blue cheese and a custom-made sweet hot sauce. Unbelievable and something I've never thought would mesh so well in the same dish.
Without a doubt I have to point out the fact that people don't give enough credit to a well-thought-out bar. First time I went I tested them on their cocktail making skills and found that they had hand-picked some rare and superior ingredients to make even your most banal of mixed drinks, just to punch them up a bit. Cane sugar bases, gluten-free vodkas for the diet - conscious, I still can't believe all the care and attention placed on every single concoction possible; this is one of the few places in Vancouver where I want to ask each time for a 'surprise-me' drink knowing that I'll actually be pleasantly surprised with their choice. Craft beer menu is pretty much what I would have chosen to keep with quality in this town, and my sommelier friend gave the 'thumbs-up' to the wine list.
To be honest, I come to be wowed, for in a city of great dining experiences, arriving at the Rise is like throwing down for a challenge - a challenge to the chef to show me something I haven't seen before. He hasn't failed to blow my expectations out of the water and heighten my standards each and every occasion I visit.
Went for brunch here with a group of 8. The food was great, the space has a really nice atmosphere, and it was great to be able to make a reservation!
Absolutely amazing place! The starters were awesome, especially the Chicken Seoul Good! The portions were very reasonable for the price and quality, so make sure to not over order on mains and snacks to save some space for dessert!
Oh my word - this chef is a creative genius! Every dish had this sense of FUN, with ingredients put together in very thoughtful ways that pair so well. Had to start with the Brussel sprouts - something I would NEVER believe I would say about a dining experience, but when it's mixed with blue cheese and a spicy zest, gotta charge in with that! Loved the share plates at this place. The mains' meats are by far some of the best quality cuts I've had in a while anywhere. It just seems like the chef is having a ball with his menu, which made it enjoyable just to experiment and try anything they offered! Great funky ambience and quite attentive service throughout our evening with friends. I gotta admit, usually when I go out I can rave about one dish from a restaurant and go 'meh' to the rest, but this hit all the right buttons with every plate.
