    Great spot in Gastown! Just enjoy the sunshine at the patio :)

    The Chilean sea bass is great here and so is the vibe of the whole place. Perfect for a weekend brunch!

    Real sun-trap patio outside. Food and drink is excellent.

    Pete Marcus · September 7, 2015
  • Meg F.

    Strong drinks, fun atmosphere, outdoor seating- one of the top spots we visited in Gastown. Caters to a young professional crowd.

    Meg Farmer · July 13, 2015
  • Adam H.

    Bad service. Weird cocktails. Go to Guilt&Co downstairs instead.

    Adam Hickey · June 11, 2015
  • Campbell M.

    Dip is OK. Avalanche too chunky, olive salty (good in my books) and babaganoush: just right.

    Campbell Macdonald · May 29, 2015
  • Arash N.

    Food here is overpriced and not worth the value. Patio drinks are a win for the summer and it's probably the busiest and best patio in town

    Arash Narchi · May 17, 2015
  • John W.

    legit cocktails

    John Waycuilis · January 2, 2015
  • Bak W.

    The bison burger is really good!!!!!!

    Bak Wong · December 21, 2014
  • Ada J.

    Amazing cocktails, chill vibe. Easy to pub hop from here to the Diamond, Guilt & Co, or the new Portside.

    Ada Juristovski · October 24, 2014

    Outdoor patio is great, but prices are a bit steep for the side of the food.

    Toria L · August 25, 2014

    Crappy food and rude service. There are much better places in Gastown.

    Sherry · August 19, 2014
  • Cheryl K.

    PB&J dessert is a must try. At first I wasn't gonna eat the bread but once I took a bite, it was game over. I annihilated the entire thing

    Cheryl Koo · August 13, 2014
  • Anna D.

    Loved the vege burger and cocktails. Awesome big patio and great service.

    Anna Duncanson · July 4, 2014
  • Ava N.

    Nice atmosphere, but the food menu is overpriced. Portions have been quite small. Nice patio, though.

    Ava Naves · March 24, 2014
  • Jamie L.

    Flat 311 beer and flat house prosecco, apparently that's how it's served.

    Jamie Learmonth · January 3, 2014
  • Cameron D.

    Actually, this place is pretty chill. The food is expensive, the beer selection is short (just 6 ok beers on tap), but the service is friendly and atmosphere is great. Rather classy and very social

    Loved the duck leg, friends hated the mac and cheese. Nice friendly staff!

    Kangaroo Wellington just blew my mind. Incredibly tender and tasty.

    Yanka Skyton · October 18, 2013

    Try the bison burger and kangaroo filet!

    Last time we were here in the summer we saw 3 brides, a protest, and a streaker!!!!

    Downstairs of the Chill Winston, at Guilt & Company, you can find some unique beers and great music.

    Somerlea Contreras Bartel · April 21, 2013

    Ask for Makers infused with Basil. Amazing drink!

    Ranjun Chauhan · April 11, 2013

    Try the Bison Shortribs - Bison. Yum.

    Ranjun Chauhan · April 11, 2013
  • Jillian O.

    Decent beer selection. For food, try the bison short rib and duck lettuce wrap.

    Jillian Ong · March 30, 2013

    Get a dozen people together and spend time in the peacock room.

    It's almost the weekend, which means time for you to join us for Live Music Brunch on Sunday from 12-3pm with The Colin Cowan Trio. Mark Your Calendars folks!

    Do not bring your college age kid here. He will insist you are not cool enough for this place!

    Love Grimbergen Dubbel.

    Moneca Yardley · September 23, 2012

  • Matt W.

    If its a nice, warm sunny day come here. Best patio in vancouver

    Matt Woodall · April 27, 2012
  • Cindy C.

    Promised it would be 15 minutes, but ended up waiting at least an hour for a table. Food was okay but tiny portions, overpriced and took a very long time to come out.

    Cindy Cheng · April 22, 2012
  • Ting K.

    perfect for an afternoon drink or espresso! turns into a hip lounge in the evenings.

    Ting Kelly · February 4, 2012
  • Taylor L.

    If you want to go for a glass of wine with a friend, go here (there's also parking). Also in the summer- huge patio! However, not a fan of the food as it's more pricey, not great, and service is meh

    Taylor Loren · January 29, 2012
  • Petrina D.

    The blue Buck Pale Ale is very meek and mild

    Petrina Dolby · January 5, 2012
  • Mario L.

    One of the fastest and most talented bartenders I have ever seen!

    Mario Lion · January 2, 2012
  • Pitch Ryder

    Like beer? Try the Grimbergen Dubbel.

    Pitch Ryder · November 11, 2011
  • Scott L.

    $9 for a pint of beer, Vancouver is really getting out of hand.

    Scott Lockey · November 5, 2011
  • Bryan C.

    Only real value of this place is the large outdoor patio. If you can't get a seat outside on a nice day just keep walking.

    Bryan Clark · October 16, 2011
  • Edward K.

    Cool spot spoiled by taped music

    Edward Kellow · October 8, 2011
  • Ruby C.

    Ardene is the most amazing server! Calamari and mussels were awesome!!

    Ruby C · September 10, 2011
  • Kristina S.

    Best place for drinks when the weather is nice. sit out on the patio and enjoy the holy water.

    Kristina Simmons · August 19, 2011

    Great atmosphere but disappointingly slow service
