I stumbled across this bar/restaurant in the middle of February on my way elsewhere at around 7pm. The neon open sign caught my attention. I am no food critic! so pay no attention to me, I only had two of the smaller dishes, but these...were my thoughts. They only had a table to give me for an hour which suited me to try their food at least. From the website, indeed the photos and intriguing dish names I had high hopes for my short stay, but it didn't live up to my expectations. From my table facing out to the street my view was framed by the neon lit window . The interior seemed to be trying to give itself an edge trying to look like a cool late night take away. The lighting didn't feel cosy - not that it had to, but for me instead it felt a little cold, for want of a better word. The tables and chairs combine with this just felt a little lacking in comfort - again though, if thats what they were going for, they nailed it. As I didn't have much time at the table, but I was rather hungry, I ordered two dishes which came in tapas sizes. I tried the "seoul good", korean fried chicken as per a recommendation from the server but it didn't level up for me. It looked good on the plate but was chewy and I couldn't finish it. The "diamonds and pearls", aged cheddar and parmesan corn and tapioca fritters I also ordered. These were fine, but not amazing. I had expected more from the name. They also were warm not hot, so the longer I took to eat them, as I wasn't much enthused to, , the colder they got naturally. I had one cocktail while there, I think it was called the Lifes a Peach, it was the best part. The servers did seem lovely but overall I don't think I would go back based on the atmosphere and the food. To me it felt a little pretentious and in fell short on the simpler things, atmosphere and most importantly food, even the smallest dishes. I am glad I tried it and other people seem to like it based on their reviews, as such it must have its strong points. Also some people may like that kind of atmosphere. This is just my opinionMore

Headed out for lunch at 1pm. I had the chicken ramen - very tasty and very filling. My friend had the squid ink pasta with fish roe. Also very good. The place not busy but very trendy.

I have visited The Rise Eatery in the south Granville ‘hood on several occasions and it never fails to disappoint. From my first visit to my most recent meal, the food is excellent and the service is attentive. I dream of the quinoa and rice...congee - it so good, it’s hard for me to order anything else! The KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) on toast topped with a sunny egg is amazing too. KFC is also offered during dinner service - if you have a chance, you must try it, crispy and tender, not at all greasy. The Heart Attack Rice is scrumptious. The care and attention provided to the menu and food is reflected in the consistent high quality of its offerings. This is also a great destination before and after shows at the Arts Club.More

I am usually not a fan of fusion restaurants since I want the authentic taste of cuisines from each country. My friends mentioned this interesting eatery and we decided to try it. The store front was not easy to find since it was at the...south end of the Granville South commercial district. The name plate was not well lit either. Once inside we were greeted warmly by our server. She introduced the concept of the restaurant and suggested some dishes for the six of us. We ordered thirteen of the dishes to share and two desserts. Most of the dishes come with imaginative names such as Barack O'Lamb-A (lamb rack), Beer Belly (beef), Curve Ball (meat ball) and Pump It Up (pumpkin creme brule). Everyone was satisfied. Corkage was reasonable.More

My family and I were celebrating a birthday and wanted to go to a new place. After looking at great reviews online, we decided to try it out. The reviews were definitely correct! The establishment was nice and very clean. I was very impressed with...the service and the food was amazing. We ordered a series of dishes that we shared with the entire group. We ordered the heart attack rice, the Seoul good chicken, belly to belly and universal pasta. Although all of the dishes were great, the heart attack rice and Seoul good chicken were phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great fusion, family-friendly restaurant!More

We enjoyed two of their set dinners, each selecting something different so we could enjoy a wide range of offerings...and it was awesome! You can see from the photos that each small plate was beautifully presented and then each tasted wonderful. Fresh ingredients, delicate and...distinctive flavours, we enjoyed every dish. This is a perfect “let’s share each other’s order” kind of place.More

My husband, his family and I recently had dinner at The Rise Eatery during a recent trip to Vancouver. The restaurant itself is nice and nicely appointed. I found the service to be very attentive. The cocktails were quite lovely and inventive. I had the...Rain City Ricky, which was really pretty tasty. The menu itself doesn’t necessarily lead you to think about its being a tapas or small-plates concept, but once we understood it, we ordered several items. The lamb lollipops were nothing short of divine, as were the shrimp. In fact, we didn’t taste anything that wasn’t really delicious. The service was exceptional and quite attentive. The restaurant was relatively crowded, but the noise level(s) were comfortable and allowed for ease conversation. I’d highly recommend trying The Rise Eatery, I don’t think you’d be disappointed.More
