I came here with two friends mid-week, just to grab a few drinks and something to snack. I had sushi before and wasn't that hungry - thankfully!We got there at around 8:30p and it seemed to be pretty dead. Ok, not that unusual for many places in YT during the week, however the place had a strange flair to me.The waitstaff was nice and chatty. Unfortunately it seemed like the competences ended... more

I used to really like section 3 I thought they made great $10 lunch specials. Maybe the last 3 times I have gone in they can't seem to get my order right. It's not that difficult ... The roasted pepper and chicken wrap. I am a vegetarian so I sub the chicken for a veggie patty. A) they charge me a dollar extra for a veggie patty. B) they never can get that I want everything the same just no... more

Had my first visit here last night and am not impressed. Our large group was seated in a back booth, which was nice and away from the crowd in the rest of the restaurant. Though, this also meant limited service as we were out of sight.Cocktails are tasty and enjoyed the Barbie's Vacation. Not enough though for the  $7.25 price tag. The DJ was good and kept us singing along while we were... more

i love the back story of the name of this place.. they named it deniro's but cuz they didn't have the blessing of the actor.. they were sued and the court case referred to Section (3) so they used that name.  also above the bar you'll see the word 'nerd'.. its letters taken from the original name/sign of the restaurant 'deniros'.  fun facts!last time i came here was a weekday for a late lunch..... more

This is a really nice place in Yaletown for dinner and drinks. I wouldnt go here for a lounge experience though. The ambiance is really cool..soft red light. I felt that the place was trendy and different. Feels upscale with good service. They have a weekly 3 course menu which is what I tried with absolutely no regrets. This menu is called 'Fresh Sheet Weekends' and is offered Thursday to... more

This is a great place for drinks but not for a nice dinner. I wouldn't come here for the food. The music is the best part - I came here when they a live DJ - but very loud and everything is fast-paced, dark, and cramped. The bar gets VERY busy into the night. I came here with a big group (of 18 or something like that) and everything was just really crazy and hectic. Not much service (probably... more

I didn't notice the bro vibe as much as my boyfriend did- at least, not right away- but the bro vibe was strong in Section 3 the Friday night we were here.  After a good meal, we were looking for one last drink, another spot to check out, and this bar/restaurant, at 10:00 seemed reasonably crowded but not over the top. We were seated by a hostess at this bench area, given food and drink menus,... more

3X for lunch, 1X for drinks.REALLY good turkey sandwich, cranberry sauce and all.Other lunches: saved by the patio.Service: not memorable (that's better than bad, which is memorable).Cocktails: turn around and get out.C'est tout

This is a relaxed place with decent good in Yaletown.  A lot less pretentious and has a great back story to the name.The good is good, though nothing that particularly stands out in my mind.  Service is really good: attentive, friendly, timely, knowledgeable.Good for larger groups too which is harder to accommodate in the area.

My 2 friends and I went to Section 3 about a month ago.  It was one of the worst experiences I have had at a restaurant in Vancouver (and I go out a lot)!When we arrived we were seated outside on the patio and given our menus.  We ordered drinks (which were quite expensive for how small they were) and then ordered food.  My husband and his friend ordered burgers and I ordered crab cakes served... more

Went to this place for dinner. Food was okay. I ordered a pad thai with tofu.. found the noodles a bit too soft and too saucy. Not authentic at all, but I shouldn't expect that from a restaurant like this. The waiter was nice, not very interactive. I didn't come here to drink, just to celebrate a birthday. It's reasonably priced, not like some of the other places around the Yaletown area. I... more

Boo - hate this place. Went here for lunch with a friend, was totally dead. Got ignored by the bartender till we went up and asked to be seated. Brie and brown sugar appetizer was so good, salad and burger were underwhelming. Then waiting ages trying to flag down the one waiter for our cheque..would not go back. Just seems pretentious.

The décor and ambiance is an affair with retro sheik. I love the lighting, colors and nude pictures. My favorite piece of décor is the large 'nerd' sign hanging over the bar.  I warn you, this location has a large amount of female nudity, no complaints here. The waitresses even dress with allure and avant garde. You must order food while chugging down your lovely libations, this is a... more

I have always liked Section 3 but the new Olympic menu with much higher prices and the new  20% auto gratuity will make me stay away in the future.

I'd love to come back here after the Olympics, and for food next time.  We ended up just getting a beer and some fries. The fries were so good that we wanted to order more, but the kitchen was closed. :( The venue had a great laid back pub feel to it, but yet also fancy. But not pretentious like a cactus club might seem. They do have good beer on tap: Red Truck Ale.

I came here for my best friends bachelorette party this Saturday all the way from Seattle and we had a fantastic time. The food was great. Everyone of the 11 girls loved what they had. The drinks were great and came fast. Our server Jason was excellent. He took great care of our table, was funny and helpful and got the bachelorette a few free shots to start off her night. We would all go back... more

Now that I am of age to experience nightlife, I can give a review on Section 3, a cool little joint in Vancouver that my Canadian friend recommended. Two things to get if you go: yam fries and the big pink girl drink that has an Asian name. They're both really good.

I've been a Section 3 hater for some time,  perhaps goes with my distaste for Yaletown in general (pity I work there).  Went here the other night under something of a protest and my loud mouthed buddy points at me and announces in a jovial manner to the waitress that I think their food sucks.   Thanks Jo! :)    After the awkwardness passed he had her suggest some things on the menu that didn't... more

I've been going to this place a couple of times for different reasons.  The food is amazing, for all the people in the groups we had along those many nights were all eating fast, and not talking, and bragging about how fantastic the food was.  Salmon, chicken, pastas and desserts are just really good.  No problem there.The drinks are pretty good and of a decent price.  The cocktail list is... more

I went to section 3 for my friend's birthday supper and we had a blast. There were a few glitches but overall it went well :) I ordered the pulled pork tortillas and they were.. GREAT! a bit too salty for me, but still very tasty. My Bf had the salmon supper ( a whopping 30$) but it was cooked deliciously. The birthday girl had the vegetarian pad-thai and it was pretty awesome too!!  Let's just... more

Can't believe I haven't written about Section 3 yet. It's one of the best one's in Yaletown!So the story behind the restaurant name is really cool. Legend has it that the owner is a HUGE Robert DeNiro fan. So she originally named the place DeNiro's. Mr. DeNiro caught wind of this and prohibited it from happening. So it either went to court? Or had some legalities involved. So bottom line is... more

My girlfriend and I went to Section 3 for lunch today and had a mixed experience. They had clearly just opened and were still cleaning up from the night before, but we didn't mind as we were the only customers in the place. The food was far from spectacular, with neither my girlfriend or I enjoying our dishes. I had the shepherd's pie, which was quite bland, and my girlfriend had the wrap,... more

Do you know the story behind the name Section 3 ? I didn't until last night. From what I heard, it use to be named DeNero ... after Robert DeNero... and that lead to legal issues and stuff like that...and it was violating some code in "Section3".. so they changed their name.. and the bar now has a giant sign with the letters "nerd," get it?Anyways...

For what and where it is, I don't mind Section (3). I like it when the dj gets his groove on in the window and doesn't seem to notice that he's in a room full of people (Thu-Sat there's a dj). The lights are dimmed, it's clean, the food is casual yet well delivered. They have nightly drink specials in the $4-5 range and have some good specials. Like Wednesdays you can get thin crust pizza for... more

Section 3 is a like a womanising man: smooth, charming, and sucks you in from the moment you step inside with its dim mood lighting, cosy booths, electric bar, and curtained-off private booth towards the back. Young, hip things serve you drinks of every kind and food that is a touch above "pub grub". There are statues of Buddha scattered around, and plush surroundings make you feel like you've... more

If you're looking for a somewhat hip, young place to have drinks and alright food for a reasonable price in Yaletown, Section 3 is a place to go. Not THE place necessarily,but definitely A place.

Section (3) reeks of Yaletown.  Small, compact spot.  Funky albeit tacky décor.  Overpriced drinks.  Par food.  Unique name.  Pretentious crowd.  Yes, Section flies through the Yaletown checklist.  People seem to take great interest in the name, if you're dying for the stimulating story it's not hard to find.  I've always enjoyed myself here, it's intimate, dimly lit and often has a solid dj... more

I've been here a few times over the years. Unlike some of it's Yaletown neighbours, it's not overwhelmingly trendy. That said, there's no real focused concept here. The décor is a bit helter skelter (the nerd sign at the bar is a bit much and feels contrived) with the menu being equally so. It's part fusion with Japanese edamame and ahi tuna served alongside chicken quesadillas and a grilled... more
