Their breakfast menu is all $10 and delicious. The first time I went there, I ordered a mimosa without knowing it was bottomless. It was delightful when the waiter kept coming by to refill it. Sit in the lounge area for a great swanky but casual vibe. Our new favourite breakfast spot which you don't have to wait an hour... More

Went here ladt Saturday for dinner with friends. Say outside on the heated covered patio. Was comfortable and warm enough. They had blankets if you caught a chill. Everyone had something different and we all enjoyed our meals. Service and cocktsils were great too. We will be back.

Food and ambiance is really good. The $10 Sunday pasta deals were very good. Tasty.. think they skimped on the pasta cause all three plates were less than usual. Still felt hungry after but couldn't complain about the food. It was really good.

We stopped by after my husband's birthday dinner to listen to music and two of my friends got up to dance and were yelled at by the waitress! I was so horrified I spoke to the manager who did nothing and zero follow up with us. Needless to say we packed up and went to the establishment next door where... More

The Distillery Happy Hour was a pleasant surprise. They serve a high end, imported, white or red wine - 5 oz. for $5.00 in a Riedel glass...classy. Their appy menu is limited but provides something for every palate. We tried the chic pea fries which were hot, crisp and quite tasty. If you don't want something from the appy menu,... More

There is a wonderful ambience in this warm and cozy restaurant. The menu is wide-ranging with an Italian emphasis. We were seeking the best happy hours that Yaletown could offer on a Monday evening. Generally, there were not many interesting venues we could find, however, we were happy to stumble upon the Distillery. The maitre d' enthusiastically welcomed us and... More

We stumbled upon The Distillery our first night in Vancouver and enjoyed it so much that we returned our last evening. The food was delicious, our server kept us happy, and the price was certainly reasonable.

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat that would not break the bank and the $10 pasta special caught our eye. We chose to sit outside and no one took our order until the bartender came out and took care of us. We waited almost 45 minutes for our dinner to arrive and it was worth... More

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighborhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
