Awesome

Came here for my mom's birthday and it was a great fine dining experience.
Food: The parents had the tasting menu which they enjoyed. I tried some of their sweet corn veloute and it was velvety (sp?) and smooth. i had the bay scallops which were cooked to perfection and the duo of duck which was also very good. My brother had the rib-eye which was large and looked good as well.

Service: Our waitress was very attentive and kind. She and I guess the manager would describe the dishes they brought out which was a very nice touch. Waitress also tried to make sure everyone had food at the same time which was appreciated since there was mixing of tasting and a la carte menus.

Value: It's fine dining so it will be on the expensive side but I believe it was all well worth the money.

Ambiance: Nothing to rave or rant about. Even with a packed house it wasnt that noisy.

Overall a pleasant experience. The only thing to note was that dinner was close to 3 hours. Food came kinda slow although that might have been due to mixing of the tasting and a la carte menus.

Refined Brunch

Still a little "hotel" in it's ambiance, but the food was absolutely top-notch and the service was gracious and efficient.
The coffee quality leaves room for improvement.
I will return for Brunch here.

Excellent dining experience

We celebrated a birthday at the Diva on July 09/07. We were very impressed with the restaurant and staff. The service was perfect and not too intrusive. The menu had a variety of choices for any taste and explained each dish in detail.

When the server placed the food on our table, we knew immediately that there is a reason this restaurant has been rated so high. The presentation was worth a picture and the taste was awesome. We had the lamb and free range chicken and both dishes were prepared to prefection. This was one of the best dinners we have had. Will definitely go back and recommend.

Finest dining in Vancouver
By GumpStump of Kitsilano, Vancouver (5 Reviews)

Went to Diva on a Monday (March 12). Although I'm not one to give perfect scores easily, I can't really fault this experience:

Food - Shared the incredible lobster gnocchi to start; wonderful mix of flavours. Had the duck as a main (my date had the scallops) and both were amazing. Perfectly cooked, interesting accompaniments, and a real artistic flair to the presentation. Certainly imparts 'fine dining' on every dish. The goat cheesecake was the standout dessert. Nice looking wine list, though we were ordering by the glass.

Service - Excellent. Attentive but not intrusive, helpful with wine pairings. None of the staff we met were aloof, which was refreshing for a restaurant like this. We got the phrase "ooh, good choice" a few times; note to servers out there, customers like hearing that (whether it is a good choice or not!)

Ambience - Although the location (ground floor facing Howe) doesn't create a spectacular view, the interior is perfectly done. Soft lighting, well spaced tables, and a high ceiling. Very quiet and romantic despite the open kitchen concept and a loud nearby group.

Although there are some restaurants I've eaten at in Vancouver that may be on par food-wise, none occupy the 'fine contemporary dining' niche that Diva has. Well worth the expense.

I just love the Diva! It has an incredible reputation and I don't know anybody (including myself) who has ever been disappointed. I always enjoy the extremely tasteful and lovely decoreated food! The ambience is classy and yet comfortable! And the desserts....well....they are simply heavenly!

Still Amazing!!

I brought my wife here for our anniversary, and it was special indeed! The room is beautiful and romantic, I had called ahead and they had put roses on the table for us! The server was very gracious and knowledgable of the menu and winelist. We decided to have the Tasting menu, it was 6 course for $65 and the wine pairings we an extra$40, well worth it! We tried food we probably wouldn't have ordered ourselves and had an amzing experience! I never realized how much the right wine with a dish can make a difference. I definately recommend this place! When I looked at the regular menu, I was actually surprised by the prices, they were not as high as I expected. I will be back soon.

I like this place!

Went there with my bf, the place was pretty empty on a weekday. Which was better I guess because we felt like we booked the whole restaurant.

There service was superb!! The server was very attentive and she started out by recommending a couple dishes, something that’s her favourites, and giving us time to think it through.

overall, I was very impressed by the food quality. You guys need to try there lobster! This places needs more people to find out about them.
