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 15-plus years of cooking experience. The global fusion offerings celebrate the ethnic diversity of Vancouver. We’re one of the few, if not only, places in town where France greets South Korea, Japan meets Italy, and Taiwan welcomes Mexico with open arms on a plate. Crafted with 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 and creative brunch items are served on Saturdays & Sundays. Dining experiences in our modern, spacious room or on our hidden patio during warmer months are fun without falling lax, sophisticated without feeling stuffy. Careful steps for safe service post-pandemic are also in place.

Cute local eatery with a unique menu. Nice patio at the back hidden away from the noise of Granville.

We had a lovely dinner on the shaded outdoor patio last evening. Quiet enough for conversation. Three small and one large shared plate were more than enough for two people. We particularly enjoyed the Chicken Seoul Good. The server was friendly but unobtrusive. We asked to share a tap beer, and he served it to us in two separate chilled glasses without us even asking. Will definitely return.

Great spot on Granville for healthy and indicative fusion eating. Think of this as a mix of fancy restaurant vegetable dishes inspired by Chinese food but made in a contemporary American type. Of dish.

Had my birthday there, they didn’t make it special or try to offer anything, a bit disappointed about that.

Food tastes good, comes in small portion tho, you will need to order at lease 3 entrees for two person. Definitely four dishes if it’s two guys.

I ordered the squid ink noodles with prawns and it was so creamy and delicious. I have been to rise eatery for brunch as well and it was also outstanding. The quality of the food is amazing and the prices are very reasonable. Definitely a great option for eating out with friends.

This bright modern restaurant has a really interesting menu. We loved the Korean chicken dish and the Buried Treasure salad looked amazing in its black pottery bowl and tasted delicious. Prices were not high and we felt we got good value. On a weekday noon hour it was not too busy so nice and quiet for our luncheon catch-up visit. I would definitely recommend trying this restaurant... we'll be back.

The food, the service and the decor of The Rise Eatery were all amazing. I made a great choice for my girlfriend’s birthday and Valentine’s Day celebrations. The only gripe I have is that the music was quite loud so it was a little difficult to have a conversation, but it didn’t take away from our experience as a whole.

We’ll definitely be going back!

We were really excited to try the Dine Out Vancouver menu at The Rise after seeing multiple positive reviews from food bloggers, on Yelp and through social media. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the hype. Although the appetizers (Chicken Seoul Good and A Curve Ball) were good, the Golly Squash felt like it lacked something. The Uni-Versal Pasta XO Edition was a let down, as the sea urchin cream didn't taste much like sea urchin, in fact, it didn't taste like much of anything. I paid an additional $7 for the deluxe version which came with two pieces of "fresh" sea urchin on top, but it wasn't creamy like any fresh sea urchin I have previously had, which was utterly disappointing. Lastly, the Luv U So Matcha tart was over powered by the abundance of raspberry coulis and the I Care-a-mel About U salted caramel creme brulee was less creme brulee and more of a liquid cream underneath a crispy brulee topping. The food was edible but underwhelming and disappointing. The service was great, despite having a server who admitted she was new. I know that Dine Out Vancouver can be a bit hit and miss, but considering they had extended their Dine Out offering by a week, and these are items that are on their regular menu, I would hope that they would have these dishes perfected.

Portion for dine out menu was too small and not worth the price of $35. Could have been more generous with the appetizer and dessert size. The squid ink pasta was not warm enough.

We chose this restaurant because it was close to the theatre and it had a dine out menu. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the dinner was fantastic. The Korean chicken appetizer was cooked perfectly as was the steak and the duck. It was melt-in-your-mouth perfect. I can't wait to try the regular dinner or brunch menu.

Very good dinner - food was tasty and the atmosphere is great. We were there for dine out - We all had the chicken kaarage which was delicious but the portion distributions were laughable. All four of our group ordered the same starter but the difference in portion sizes were comically unequal. For the main three of us had the uni-versal pasta and one person had the steak and fries. The pasta was delicious. My friend’s steak looked ok. Something that did bother me was that when we arrived they tried to give us a crappy table behind the partition wall. We had made a reservation so asked to be seated in the brighter front part of the restaurant which was fairly empty. The hostess refused and said those tables were all reserved. We sat down but were very unhappy. After a little while our waitress came and said we could move to another table. Why did they do that to us?Did we look unworthy and should be given the worst table there? See if you can get away with giving some early customer the bad table and save the better seats for later customers? Or give the Asian women the bad seats? Wtf? Another issue is that it took a very long time for our food to arrive. I would go back but be sure to ask for a table in the brighter part of the restaurant not behind the wall.

Food was absolutely amazing. Only thing that was a bit disappointing was the chicken Seoul good ( the other appetizers were better) and the size of the matcha tart.

Otherwise, the best pasta I ever had and best creme brûlée. Would go back just for those two items

Dine out - chicken appy was great! We all ordered and thoroughly enjoyed it. The adobo duck confit entree was flavourful. The uni pasta dish was delicious but the noodles were overcooked. Matcha cheese tart was to die for but so small! Good service from our waitress.

The Dine Out Vancouver menu offered a good selection. The steak with the miso gravy was flavourful and delightful. The long-awaited uni pasta with the fresh uni upgrade could have used a sprinkle of salt on the uni and egg yolk to elevate their flavour. The prawns, however, were over-cooked and over-seasoned. Our reservation was for 8:45 and I wondered why they didn’t offer us the Happy Hour drink menu from 9 onwards. Otherwise, the service was friendly.

We ordered the chicken Seoul good, uni pasta, iron steak and frites, love u so matcha (matcha tart), and the creme brulee. The entree portions were more than enough. No need to upgrade the matcha tart to regular size.

Chicken Seoul good: smells great! Taste was average. Couldn't taste the truffle. Could only smell it.

Uni pasta with shrimp (added $7 for 2 pieces of fresh uni): could not taste the uni in the sauce or the fresh pieces. The pasta was semi cold (another table ordered a few of these and all of them were saying the same thing and asked the hostess. The hostess confirmed it's not supposed to be cold). 3 out of the 4 shrimps were super salty (even to my husband and he eats on the saltier side)

Matcha tart: go for the dine out size. I added $5 for the regular size and it was too heavy for the 2 of us to share.

Creme brulee: best dish of the night. It is a bit different than the other creme brulees we had (in a good way).
