Amazing food and wonderful presentation. Genuine service with a smile. Great, cosy and relaxed atmosphere, whether seated in the dining area or the bar - highly recommend looking at their cocktail menu, possibly the best dining experience I have had in Vancouver!More

I am usually sceptical about restaurants located in hotels. Usually the ambiance and food do not positively relate to their high prices. In the case of the Diva at the Met, the ambiance was a typical hotel one, but the food was exceptional. We both...More

Hi Sandra. People tend to be more casual on most days, but on special occasions like Christmas or New Year's Eve, they tend to dress up a bit more. We are casual fine dining, so come comfortable.
