I dined here, solo, In July 2014. After being served my meal and a glass of wine, I was told the bread was still in the oven. I waited and waited... and tried to catch the attention of the waiters who were looking after two tables with families. ( The restaurant was not busy.) Eventually, after about 15 minutes, I... More

I don't but that hasn't stopped me from being one of their great ambassadors spreading the word on this fantastic restaurant! I travel over 200 nights per year and dine at some of the best restaurants in the world so... More

Setting along the bay and the sea wall walkway creates the perfect location for a dinner of fresh fish and seafood. Our server, Pete, gave us just the right amount of attention. He didn't rush, nor did we feel rushed. The only criticism I had was the accompanying rice - not good. I would suggest asking to substitute a different... More

This "on the water" restaurant, located in beautiful Coal Harbour, blocks from downtown Vancouver, is a great way to watch the sunset AND get good food. The prices are medium costly, but the atmosphere is worth it. Try the outside deck, even if it is chilly. The space is all heated.

We had a chance while biking the sea wall at Stanley Park but regret not doing it then. When we showed up without the reserveration it would be an hour wait for a table. The hostess suggested we could get a seat immediately at the oyset bar or the bar. We choose the oyster bar. Service was very fast and... More

We got right in even though there was a crowd waiting to be seated. We learned they all wanted outside seating. Dinner and our waitress was amazing! We ordered the salmon and the halibut and they were wonderful! We stayed at the Westin Bayshore next door which was only a two minute walk.

We had a table on the deck. Service was good and prices reasonable. My wife and I shared two different appetizer plates (fried oysters and shrimp dumpling?) and they were tasty.

The location in coal harbour is fabulous. We were on the deck in the sunshine. Our waiter was fantastic - personable, attentive, great timing. Our after-dinner tea and coffee took a while to materialize - the restaurant was packed to capacity on a weeknight. We went for an early dinner, I think if we were arriving at any other time,...
