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.

First time there and did not have a good first impression. The restaurant is beautiful but the food is only okay. Service is slow. They messed up my friend’s order and I found a hair in my eggs. They had to remake both orders. I will not return.
we've gone to this restaurant twice now and have added to our 'favourites'. Great tasting innovative dishes and the service is fantastic.
Very nice food and ambiance
Simply amazing ! This asian , European , American restaurant is a gem in Vancity ! I enjoy every dish , especially the Chef’s special creation of savoury appetizers on a Ferris Wheel love it !!!
The food is so flavourful! Loved the Chicken Seoul Good, Heart Attack Rice and my kids couldn’t get enough of To Ssam It Up! They can’t wait to go back. Service was fantastic too. Very attentive and friendly.
Good food and service. Definitely not traditional Indian food.
The service and New Year’s Eve DJ and theme was nice. But food wasn’t anything special. We were excited to try some very interesting sounding dishes but we weren’t wow’d by what we were served.
The food was very flavorful but not hot. Reserved table for two and that got us a seat with the other groups of two at the back, by the washrooms and staircase to the kitchen. Less than impressed but nice servers.
The food is delicious - unique flavors and combinations make for a fun and tasty meal. The service is excellent.
Good foods, good environment and good service.
Overall a very disappointing experience. I was looking forward to this brunch as the reviews were good. Our food took over an hour from time of order to arrive. We had to follow up on our order twice before it came. After waiting 40 mins for the food, I asked the server and she said it was because the restaurant was busy as it was a full house which it clearly wasn’t. She said the food was being plated. I told her we had hungry kids and after waiting another 20 mins, I asked again and again I was told it was being plated. There were only four other tables in the restaurant. The food finally arrived 1.5 hrs later and the waffles were hard and the eggs benny was burnt, ramen salty and meat in the skillet over cooked. The whole time we waited, management never checked on us and we were only asked once on water and coffee refills. Servers were nice but clearly inexperienced. I asked to speak with the manager as the quality of food and service was just unacceptable. She apologized and said it was because the chef called in sick and “I wish you could see what’s going on downstairs so you can understand that we are trying”. As a business though, no matter how chaotic, you always want your customers and patrons to see it as crisp and smooth and you should have backup when a chef calls in sick. Waiting over an hour for food that’s coming out burnt and stale really isn’t worth it and as compensation, she told us that we didn’t need to pay gratuity. 🤷🏻♀️ Eating out with kids can sometimes be a challenge enough, now imagine having to keep the kids entertained for over an hour while they’re hungry. Such a disappointing experience for us and our out of town guests.
Very tasty but COLD food. One person of two got served 30 minutes before the other. Servers had no sense of timing. We were not offered a beverage and waited 30 plus minutes for a beer. Would consider returning if under new management. Recommend you check with cooks as to how long you will have to wait to eat before making a reservation
We went before seeing a play at the Arts Club. So glad they sent us this restaurant suggestion! Great experience all around, and an interesting menu of tasty options.
Nice place for special noodle, and a glass of beer, with friends. Waiter is friendly, food is good, price is reasonable. The only challenge is the parking space.
One of the most diverse brunch menus I've seen in the city! We were a group of 9 and most were pretty happy with our meals! The flavours were great though the execution for a big group could have been a little bit better executed. The servers were lovely but seemed a little inexperienced. Overall a lovely little gem in South Granville!
Thank you for a really outstanding company holiday meal! Delicious food, lovely service, much appreciated!
Quiet, cozy spot on a Sunday evening. Attentive service, creative food.
Nice place for small gathering. Not busy on Saturday night. Only downfall - Prices a little high for alcoholic drinks. Small glass for $10. But will go back for the food - especially the appetizers - Chicken Seoul Good, Lo Hay salad and Heart Attack rice were exceptional, tasty and delicious. The main dishes we tried not very impressed. Gone Fishing was bland. The beef in Peel and Steak was alittle tough. But veggies in Buried Treasure was delicious. Overall food was good.
Delicious brunch options and great atmosphere. We had excellent service as well.
Me and boyfriend felt great with the decor and the food. Except later on, there was a huge party a few tables next to us were so loud that I could even hear one of the women’s voice in the restroom down the hall. Was quite disturbing while we tried to enjoy the last dish. We told the waiter and he offered to move us somewhere. Obviously our dinner was spoiled.
Delicious! Service was great, we were seated promptly and the food was on point. Thank you!
The food was delicious and it’s “family style” so you’re supposed to order a bunch of dishes and share, which I’m happy to do. The problem was that even after buying $25 worth of food (per person) we all still walked away hungry. (And we’re a bunch of skinny middle aged ladies) Either the portions were too small or they were over priced.
Everything was perfect!
service was awesome, the plate presentation was pretty, food was just okay (went for brunch), but would go back to try the dinner menu some time. however didn't really like the long-table setting for a group of four, it was hard to talk with each other.
Enjoyed a delicious meal before the theatre. (Shared Plates) Close to the Stanley Theatre. 15% off with your show ticket. Pleasant server. Not a very good selection of WINE "by the glass". We will be returning soon to try other items on their menu.
Disclaimer I really enjoy fusion food, with different flavours and textures melded together. The Rise sure delivered! We started with a Beesting cocktail and the Danhattan. Fantastic. We then moved onto an order of the cauliflower Brussels sprouts and the heart attack rice. I could eat that rice all day long. The flat iron steak with mashed plaintain was cooked sous vide and was the yummy. Our bill was under $90 which can’t be beat. I understand that the restaurant offers a discount if you come before or after a show at the Stanley. Great place for cocktails and small bites or a bull meal.
Good fun. Great food and interesting concept.
The food was creative and delicious, the service was a bit too formal for my taste. While our server was very knowledgeable, I wish that the dishes had been explained once again when they hit the table as there were a lot of ingredients that got us talking and we didn't know what they were.
Food was okay but trying too hard. Tuna starter was bland and mushy. Cauliflower and sprouts starter was best overall dish. 3 of us had the Go Fish entree...2 scallops, 3 prawns a nice sauce but mostly pasta. Mushroom entree had more bread than mushrooms. Pork belly entree had big pile of plain lettuce..no dressing no sauce.
A large group of young men was seated right behind us ( 18+ people) and the noise level was intolerable. Won't be back
Rise and shine! Checked out the Congee under the something different section after learning there was no brunch feature. We had made reservations but a large group walked in before us so our orders took awhile longer. The saltiness from the creamy poached egg yolk played off the crunchy texture from fried Chinese doughnut and nutty red quinoa. There’s no rice in this congee but plenty of chicken and scallion in this creative dish. It certainly draws attention from other patrons. Enjoyed the change-up from the standard brunch menu and their smoked bacon Benny was also well done. Kind of like going to Medina without the long lineups.
Second time here, but new menu items and will definitely be back! We love the food and the creative cocktails.
My new favourite restaurant. Very creative dishes. A true dining experience.
Great place before a play.
dining at the rise was a positive experience
the servers are warm and well-informed--encouraging you to experiment and order just what you want
food was innovative and delicious
cauliflower appetizer was too spicy--did not feel adequately warned
loved the affogato dessert!
Excellent restaurant, fantastic food, highly recommend.
We went for brunch. They did not have the option to have a half portion of eggs benny. When we asked if they could split it on to two plates they said no, but we can bring you a plate.
When the dishes arrived they were underwhelming compared to the description offered. We ordered the hollandaise on the side and it was cold.
We have season tickets to the Arts Club and agreed that we wouldn’t return to this restaurant.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and soft lighting, the service was excellent, the food was very good.
Shared a few plates. Interesting menu. Not the usual fare. Delicious.
It was loud with hard surfaces. Loved the fusion cuisine. Will definitely go back to try other dishes.
Service could’ve have been friendlier. I asked to see the lunch and dinner menus and was told to go outside to look at the menus posted on the window!
Overall a lovely little place seems to have a good array of cocktails but we stuck to wine. Our server was outstanding and very attentive to us, even offering us a better table when one became available suddenly. They were also highly accommodating of and knowledgeable about celiac disease and careful to specify if something could or could not be adjusted. I would definitely recommend it to people with gluten issues for that very reason. Our food was average, but overall I would go there again and try different dishes.
