Was at the refinery last night for a birthday party. Got the steak for dinner and it was just lovely. We were all very impressed with our food. Want to go back asap.

We stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant one evening, and immediately knew we were in the right place. We were greeted by our friendly and professional server Jessica, and she made our visit very memorable by recommending more spots for our bar-hopping adventure that...More

The restaurant accommodated our last minute reservation for 6 and provided amazing service despite a large party also going on. They were very attentive. The drinks are tasty with house made bitters. The food wasn't amazing but not bad pricing anyway.

We came here for a birthday party and the restaurant was pretty packed. The menu is definitely quite limited in what they offer but the food itself was very good. They were very accommodating about letting us mingle in the back room. Overall a good...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along

We have currently turned into an event space and only open for private functions. Located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, this unique and exclusive second level event location features beautiful decor, elegant lighting, a 18ft full-service bar, and much more. We offer a diversity of customizable options to book a semi-private section or the entire location. The Refinery is the perfect fit for a wide range of functions from 20 to 75 people. From corporate functions, staff parties, engagement parties, birthdays to presentations. The Refinery provides a laid back, comfortable atmosphere to our diners through our music, dimly lit room, and elegant décor. The Refinery is nestled in the heart of downtown, but tucked a little out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the Granville Entertainment District, we are upstairs at 1115 Granville Street, between Helmcken and Davie.
