Went for dinner, as my mom was in town. Food was excellent, however we were struggling with menu. Waitress did not explain the menu and did not give any recommendations. For water refill, server was about to pour in my beer glass, hahahaha, hilarious. Maybe it was too dark for her in dining room , I do not know!

The food here is awesome, fresh and delicious. The service was really good, very attentive. It's pretty loud though, they have the music pumping so we had to repeat things or shout them to one another, but it felt like a lively atmosphere. One of my favourites!

We came up from Seattle to experience Hapa Izakaya's Japanese fare. We were searching for a classy "hipster" Asian restaurant, we came across Hapa Izakaya. and made reservations a week prior. The food was very fresh, excellently prepared and presented, we tried as many dishes as we can consume at a single sitting. Service was great, especially when the owner,... More

Came here for lunch - was a recommendation by a local friend. Most of the menu items are tapas style but you could definitely order a bowl of something just for yourself if that's what you prefer. We ordered a CHIPOTLE CURRY ISHI-YAKI. Rice bowls are brought to your table and mixed in a hot stone bowl which is super... More

Went here for a late lunch and was greeted with smiles and a line out the door. Luckily most of them were waiting for their takeout. Ordered Miso Soup and a California Roll, both were excellent. The Chef was very friendly and personable. Bartender/Waitress was awesome. Definitely will return if i make it back to Vancouver

I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a nice out in Vancouver. We showed up on a Friday night without a reservation and were seated right away. The prices are reasonable, the food out of this world. I can't wait to go back again.

Fabulous meal. They can be very busy during lunch hour, so if you are in a time crunch, not your best choice.

We were a group of 6 so ordered dishes to share. Sushi, kalbi beef, chicken, rice dishes were all ordered. Everything was fresh and tasted great. The service was good but I've had better. We were expecting more because of some online reviews we had read. But overall it was good food in a relaxing environment and made for a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
