Fusion / Eclectic
Bringing together the distinct flavors of regions in Asia, Europe, the Americas and beyond, The Rise Eatery pushes boundaries of culinary ingenuity. 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.

This place has a pleasant, laid-back atmosphere. The setting is bright and minimalist, with lots of natural light. The food was very tasty -- we had their eggs benedict on the special bread. We could have used a bit more hollandaise sauce for the potatoes, which were too plentiful on the plate. The service was good. We will come back and we will recommend this to friends. Only downside is parking: very challenging in that neighborhood.

We’re
Almost the first few group entering the restaurant and we ordered 3 dishes plus the signature dessert wheel. They took almost 1.5hours to serve us all
3 dishes and finally The waitress told us that out desserts were no where to be seen so that had to be cancelled. I don’t know how that could happen because some other later groups finished their meals before we did. I ft sorry for my friend who when with me because it was her birthday.

Food was pretty good, but the steak portion was pretty small. I liked the vege bowl that was recommended by the server. We wanted to have hot sake but they only had cold ones. The one that bartender recommended was alright, 12$ for one glass. Not impressed. Overall service was ok but it was just really slow. I visited to have the wheel dessert, it is worth experiencing, won’t order it again though. The quality is a bit underwhelming compared to the price: 35$ for 8 bite-sized desserts. I think I might go back for food, not for drinks/dessert.

The food is outstanding and the names of the dishes are quite splendid. The Obama lamba was tender and delicious, as were the heart-attack chicken and the cured trout dish. Thank you again for feeding us royally!

Food was good and service was friendly. My main complaint would be that it took forever before the food came out and the restaurant was only half full. From time of ordering to the arrival of food was just over 30 mins. That said, when the food came, it was still good.

Always a crowd favourite with us. We come here to celebrate occasions and also 'just because'.

Brought another newbie diner and she loved it too.

Barack o'Lamba (don't you just love the names) was so delicious! Chicken Seoul Good is a must. Heart attack rice is awesome too.

Only one disappointment was that Pot of Gold wasn't available anymore.

Delicious dinner celebrating my daughters birthday with her friends. The dessert canvas was so much fun for them. Must tries are the squid ink pasta with sea urchin and the TORTELLINI OUTRAGEOUS and Barrack O’Lamba

The food was unique and loved the options of not only food but beverages too. I wish there was more options for dessert. The happy hour was 3 to 5 which also was too bad. Would love to see more people in there as it's a good spot

My first time visit. The patio was small but quiet and a large umbrella was provided for shade. Meal was excellent, but for me the stand out was the cappucino at the end!! Thanks - we'll be back.

We had tickets to the Arts Club.
Seating was ready. server was prompt and friendly. Kitchen was slow. Ordered 3 course set meal. We received 2nd course at 7:10. Asked for dessert and bill. Out at 7:20. Very rushed.

Very good food. Innovative, fresh and well cooked. The only disappointment was the heart attack rice which lacked a USP. Chicken Seoul Good, squash dish, pork belly and salad were all fantastic.
Service started well but seemed to evaporate when we wanted the cheque.
Very few diners on a Tuesday evening so it lacked some atmosphere but I expect this would be good at busier times.

Great food, but the place was empty. I wonder why really, the food is amazing there. Different without being just original for the sake of it. SOme daring dishes, other more classic, all very well crafted,

I would recommend The Rise based on the flavours of a few of the dishes we tried provided there were no other time related commitments. Drink and food service was somewhat slower than other tapas style restaurants but the meals were very nice

It was our first visit to The Rise Eatery. It was wonderful. The Pseudo Crudo was delicious and don’t tell Mary, lamb popsicles were among the best I have ever tasted. My husband’s scallops and his flat iron steak were outstanding. We were served by charming Jaron.it was indeed a memorable experience. We shall return and we shall recommend it to all our friends. It was very reasonably priced and the naming of the dishes on the menu was delightful
