First time and it was rather nice. Not too many people but busy enough for an after work catch up with friends. Nice decor inside and very pleasant. Staff was friendly and the snacks were lovely.

After a fun session of LAUGHTER YOGA at Open Door Yoga, 4 women friends and I wandered Commercial to decide on a supper place. We didn't want anything too expensive, but we had picky eaters so we passed up a few places with spicier options :( and we were starting to feel like nothing would work... Until we found the...

We went here prior to a concert at the other end of "The Drive". Our waitress was superb, attentive, helpful and fun and the food was great. Only wish we'd had time to listen to the band. We will be back.

If you like bars/restaurants in the burbs and don't have an appreciation for 'alternative' communities, Libra Room probably isn't your place. My wife have been there twice in the last month and enjoyed it both times. We went the first time as there was a long wait at Mescalaria next door which is one of our Drive favourites. LR crowd...

Is the second time we was totally disagree with the same waitress and the place. Yesterday she put on our bill two more beers, I knew perfectly how many beers I drank. And she told me ¨that the computer is never wrong¨ I can´t believe it. Definitely we didn´t give a tips.

We ordered a steak bites appetizer but we returned it. The beef tasted weird and seem old. We also ordered calamari and drinks and which were okay.

My wife and I have been twice. Both on a deal (Groupon'SocialShopper) and our experience was fine. Both times we went before 6 PM and so no live music. They have changed hands since the first time but neither time was busy so no reservation was required. The food was better the first time but both were decent. Prices not... More

Came here on a Friday night with 3 girlfriends & $100 groupon. Place was packed & the live band was obnoxiously loud. At the end of a set a band member came around to each and every table with a tip jar. My girlfriend put a $20 in it & said it was from all of us. He snarks "that's... More

The service was poor we wait like an hour to get our food. Music was good. But at the end when we pay, the waitress "lost" my credit card. And she insisted she gave it back which was not the case. She run to the kitchen and avoid us. Finally the manager came out and make a big scene. And... More

Both times we went there for dinner we used coupons. We had great seating and a delightful waitress who actually remembered us from our first visit.

Staying in Commercial Drive

Neighbourhood Profile
Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy counter-culture. Straddling the line between sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups, and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit of self-aware graffiti, Commercial Drive has resisted gentrification in favor of continuing to build a thriving den of affordable multiculturalism. Once known as Vancouver's "Little Italy," it has also been the immigration point for Guatemalans, Hondurans, and Portuguese to the city. The resulting hodgepodge makes for poetry readings in espresso cafes, social debates in early-open bakeries, and eco-activism posters pinned up in the many multi-ethnic markets in the area. Commercial Drive is where you go to feel like a local, and if you have them, bring the kids – The Drive has a number of bookshops, toy stores, and attractions to get them involved too.
