Me and my girlfriend and I came in unexpected and we were seated upstairs. Our server was quite bubbly and greated us and suggested we get a bottle of wine. We ended up getting dinner and desert. It was an unexpected and fun night! the large table beside us were laughing and having a blast too. Loved it!

Our visit to Italian Kitchen was on a Friday night. We had a reservation through our concierge at our hotel. We arrived at the restaurant to a friendly greeting but another hostess took us to our table and before we left the entrance area she was sure to let us know that we had only two hours at our table...

This place has maintained a buzz since its inception. I have been now three times and I won't be back. The food is fine - nothing to complain about and good attention to detail - however - the volume inside is just beyond OK. There is echoing and the volume increases to deafening levels. How is anyone supposed to enjoy... More

Although the restaurant was fully booked and was one of the busiest nights of the year, the quality of food and service did not disappoint. All the food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. They have a great list of wines, cocktails and other speciality drinks. Not the cheapest place but we feel you get your moneys worth with the... More

we tried this place once. The food was very good but the price was on high side (in my opinion). Very good service. It could be a little noisy if you are sitting close to the bar and kitchen.

This was our last Dine out Vancouver dinner of 4 consecutive Friday's. This one was disappointing. We have been here for dinner before and found it to be good food, reasonably priced. We were expecting a good value special meal. The Dine out dinner was not special and not good value compared to say Bacchus or Edible Canada. We may... More

The food is tasty but the portion is Small. Expect 50+ $ to get diner. They don't provide any kind of bread, butter or olive oil as all Italien restaurants do. There is no value to go back again.

Not what I expected from the previous reviews. Although the atmosphere is nice and the staff were helpful and attentive, the menu was way overpriced. I guess that's what you get when your in DT Vancouver. Our meal - $32 for an appetizer sized portion of 4 small scallops and a deep fried puck of risotto... Risotto was "just" above... More

I dined here with a couple friends for their January lunch special. The food was exceptional, tasty and great value, the restaurant is clean and comfortable if you get upstairs seating. I probably wouldn't dine here if I had to sit downstairs as it is very dark and the carpets need to be done as they carry that "night club"... More
