Fets Whisky Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Great place to chill and enjoy each others company
Celebrated my friend's birthday here and they were very attentive and accommodating to our group! Everyone enjoyed themselves and loved the food and drinks that they had!
I ordered the Fried Chicken & Southern French Toast and it was tasty - the chicken was well seasoned. The chicken vs French toast ratio was off - the dish could have used an extra piece of chicken. We arrived at 10AM, ordered promptly and it took an hour for the food to arrive. The restaurant was not busy. It was eventually explained to us that the kitchen staff are new.

Steak was terrible, ribs were out of this world amazing. Cocktails were lame, whiskey was the best I've ever had
Excellent whiskey selection and passionate owner.
Excellent whiskey selection and passionate owner. Recently went to Fets Whiskey Bar and The Irish Heather in the same weekend, both known for their whiskey selection. Fets has a better selection of whiskeys and whiskey cocktails than the Irish Heather even though Irish Heather is more well known.
Terrible food, excellent whiskey selection
I would go back but only for cocktails and maybe charcuterie. The food was so salty I could barely eat it. Not impressed with the food at all. Had a cool vibe tho and an excellent whiskey selection. Great place for cocktails only. Good, knowledgable server

If you're a Scotch drinker, this is the place for you. The food is really good too and most come with a recommended Scotch to pair it with.
Service was super friendly and welcoming! Even though super busy vday Sunday we were noticed as soon as we walked in! I had reservations, little disappointed with where we had to sit at the back, it was quite squishy and small, so many better tables and given I made a reso it would've been moved to sit else well. I had a Benny for my brunch, was decent but nothing special. The hash browns however were delicious!!! Overall good experience and the other dishes were tasty!

Fantastic evening! Great food and drinks. Service was exceptional for our group.
Whiskey, Whiskey Everywhere!
Had a very lovely evening with my scotch-loving partner at Fets. Made the drive out from Richmond for a whisky selection that absolutely blew him away. We both were very entertained reading the thick-book-o'-whiskey that contained information on all the different varieties they carried. Service was attentive, the charcuterie board was very tasty, and overall our experience was very pleasant. We will be coming back! :)
Great start to New Years Eve
The food was much, much better than I would have expected from a semi casual place. Someone knows their way around a kitchen for sure as this is not your average drinks and burger place. The whiskey pairings are a great idea, something I have not seen before. The waitress was new but super friendly and attentive. And her recommendations were spot on. I would definitely come here again.

It was ok. Just ok, not great or special. They used to have awesome burgers here but I think it's gone downhill a bit.
Great Spot for a Date
This has been one of my favorite locations for dates in East Vancouver. The ambience is perfect, the drinks list is obviously amazing if you're into whiskey or scotch. It's not too loud so you can have a good conversation, and there are even a few tables that have an L shaped bench allowing you to sit beside your date. I have even had good luck with those into beer as well. My favorite dish is so far the Stacked Texan burger, it's huge though, and you'll probably get bbq on your face and need to take home leftovers.

Service and food was amazing! It's a tight fit in there so if you get next to a noisy table you can hear them quite well. Overall GO HERE! very good place for a small group or a date!

Another great nite at the Whisky Kitchen. It was a busy Friday but Eric, Allura and Cheyenne took good care of us. The Westcoast Cod dinner was great with mashed squash and sautéed greens. And the Kaluhua/orange crème brule finished off a great meal.
A Great Whisky bar.
If you like whiskies, you will love Fets. An outstanding malt collection. The food is also very good. A Vancouver gem.
Great selection of scotch - that's why we went.
Great selections in their Scotch society offerings.
I've always walked past but never gone in. We went here for National Scotch Day and they were amazing. From the Bible of tasting notes, to the food, coupled with the great service this place definitely warrants another visit. Great spot.
Finally, a great whiskey bar in Vancouver
This place is amazing and the selection of whiskey is outstanding. The food was fresh, tasty, and perfect with the drinks that they paired. Overall , a fantastic night out and we'll definitely be back!
Surprising Menu and Huge Whisky Selection
We returned to FETs after several months out of the City and as always the experience was 5 star. Whisky lovers should not miss the Kitchen, which has over 800 bottles to choose from. And the boys in the Kitchen continue to surprise with interesting and unique offerings - this time kangaroo steak served rare - mmmm! - and a lamb burger. And of course there is the regular fare Everyone should try!

Whisky nerds: geek out in scotch paradise!
Fets is one of the best whisky destinations I've visited, and I've visited a few in my travels. The selection is excellent. It's one of only 3 Scotch Malt Whisky Society Partner Bars in Canada, which means 130 or so unique SMWS expressions are available to peruse in their whisky bible and -- once you've studied that compendium to your satisfaction -- to sample and enjoy. Besides the SMWS offerings, their whisky menu includes hundreds of more standard expressions from Scotland, Ireland, the US, Canada and around the world. If you can't make up your mind, the knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff will offer well-informed and helpful suggestions. They are truly, as their marketing accurately enthuses, "Vancouver's Premier Whisky Bar" and indeed, I would say, high on the list of whisky bars in all of North America. The food is delicious, with plenty of choices including many vegetarian and gluten-free options. Try the whisky-infused corn fritters, and leave room for one of the inspired desserts (which change daily). The night we were there we got to enjoy a bourbon-espresso creme brulee. Out of this world. If you're a whisky lover you'll likely need to come back again. And again. Prices are not low, but given the selection and quality available I'd call them reasonable. There's stuff here you won't find anywhere else in or near the city.
Check it Out
Randomly decided on the restaurant but was happy with our pick. The service for the food was great, especially speedy (probably for the turnover in the small space). What was really impressive were the drink menus. There was a binder for the Whiskey. It's a hopping spot, and can get pretty noisy. It's definitely a place to check out if you like Whiskey or are wandering around Commercial.
All good except for our server
It was a busy sunny day on the patio. Our server was friendly and smiled warmly. The problem was she was disorganized and was slow at taking our order and getting our check. It took over 30 minutes to have our order taken. This included me telling her I was ready to order, only to wait 10 more minutes. She attended to guests that arrived after my table ahead of me. If we didn't state we wanted our order taken I can only wonder how much longer I would have waited. Needless to say I only left bitter. My friend and I both have experience in hospitality and this was unacceptable. The food itself was good. My drink, old fashion, could have been better.
Fets Whiskey Kitchen
Fets is more like a pub than a restaurant. They have an extensive whiskey selection - otherwise, nothing special. The service was ok, the food...: Ok. I wouldn't go back for dinner.
Very cool place with amazing food. We'll be back!
Found this place on open table when I was actually looking to see if another restaurant took reservations. I saw whiskey in the name and knew that's where we were going instead and boy and I glad we did! Although the place is a little cramped the food, service and drink selection made that insignificant.
Wonderful Birthday Dinner!
My boyfriend loves whisky and I surprised him with Fets for his birthday last weekend. The food was absolutely incredible. I had the whisky mac and cheese and a salad and he had the whiskey bbq burger; everything was delicious. We tried two new cocktails which were also amazing and they helped us pair our dessert (a pumpkin creme brulee) with a perfect whisky. Overall, it was the perfect birthday dinner. We'd love to go back when we visit Vancouver next time!

Food good. Service not. Waitress was super slow, not friendly (not rude either) and she forgot aone of our requests (pita bread and dessert menu).
Great food. Drinks came really slowly, but it is a cocktail bar!
Great Whisky Selection & food!
The staff at Fets Whisky Kitchen spent the time explaining the high-end whisky selections and also some value brands which I enjoyed. The food was very good and portions were great!
Great place overall for any meal of the day! Will definitely return again.
Lively but casual
Met a friend I Cherish, at Fets to catch up. Perfect ambiance with sidewalk patio seating on the vibrant commercial drive scene. Whiskeys are the specialty but good beers, good food and the service was excellent.
