My husband & I had the Christmas set menu with options on Christmas Eve. The location is just off to the side of the Metropolitan hotel lobby. Cozy in size greeters were friendly. We were sat near the back of the restaurant away from the bar & kitchen so unfortunately not much to look at. Service was good. Food was... More

My wife and I had dinner here on Christmas Eve. The restaurant was full as to be expected on such an evening. My first observation was that the entranceway/host desk area is woefully inadequate. It is quite a confined area and with more than six guests, it becomes crowded with a makeshift coat-check area as well. It comes across as... More

Thank you for this note, hearing feedback from our guests ultimately makes us better. I agree that the entrance area is on the small side; I am glad that you weren't made to wait to be seated. I will pass kudos along to the kitchen and service teams. Our lunch and dinner a la carte menu's are well worth exploring... More

We enjoyed a relaxing lunch and a glass of wine before heading back into the madding crowds for Christmas shopping. I would recommend Diva at the Met for business as well as family lunch. Good service, excellent food options and attentive staff.

We just decided at the last minute to check this long standing landmark out for dinner. No disappointment here. Salads are generous enough for an entree but keep going. The lobster gnocchi was excellent. Our server Veronica was a perfect blend of personable yet attentive... a true asset for the restaurant. We'll be back because the martinis are legendary!

I've been here before during the Grey Cup and was excited to have the black cod again. The food was very good. However, The service was less than stellar. I had joined a couple of friends and to get any service required me getting out of my seat to find a wine list. Then to get my meal, the waitress... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
