This is a beautiful old place with exposed brick walls. We dined upstairs near the window, so the view out over the street and water was terrific. I had the 8 oz. ribeye (which was at least 10 oz.) and my partner had the snapper. Both were fresh, perfectly prepared and the side dishes were as good as the proteins.... More

Our last night in Vancouver was a delight. We enjoyed the drinks,food, service & jazz music. The owner was especially attentive. We were able to enjoy a few dances while the band played. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The Revel Room is a great place. We were walking the busy Friday night streets and wanted a chill place with good vibes and music. The Revel Room enticed us with smooth jazz and a unique feel. Quite busy at the time we grabbed a table upstairs. Service was prompt and friendly - we had already eaten dinner so did... More

The live music and owner welcomed us off the street. We had a great table listening to the jive/swing music from a super 4 piece band...the owner joined in to sing...he was good too! Had glass of ok wine while waiting for our food. Wife had saserak mussels and I had steak and frites...both delicious. They have different kinds of... More

Went here yesterday, wow what a great little place. Food was yummy. I got the gumbo and if was really good, and quite a large portion. Also ordered the fried chicken and was one of the best in the city. Drinks were decently priced during sour hour with live music. Kinda loud but a great atmosphere. Will be going again!... More

We tried to stop in on the suggestion of our Vancouver host, but were turned away at the door. Looked like it was hopping! Can't really speak to anything other than the importance of booking ahead of time.

Wanted to love this place but just liked it. Waitress unhappy to be at work and took it out on all her customers. Come on, you're in a service industry. Drinks good, musicians friendly and fun. Food-well. Ordered the fried chicken which was tasty but 2 of my 3 pieces were part raw. Waitress could've cared less. Not happy.

This is a different little place with a relaxed fun atmosphere. The live band were playing a touch of New Orleans rock and roll - not jazz in case you were wondering. Food was plentiful, it appeared to be cooked on the premises and the gumbo is highly recommended. Owner and bar staff all very friendly and overall a nice... More
