We sat at the Sushi bar and had an excellent meal. Raw oysters and fish were top quality. The service was excellent and the ambience of the restaurant was very nice. We will eat here again if we are in Vancouver.

The Blue Water was recommended to my wife and I while travelling in Vancouver. The restaurant did not disappoint. Our server Jennifer had the perfect balance between being attentive and remaining out of the way. Her food and wine recommendations were perfect. The restaurant is located in the Yaletown area on Hamilton Street; an easy walk from the downtown hotels.... More

On our way to a hockey game we jumped into the Blue Water Café . . . without a reservation and were seated a lovely table for two in front of the sushi bar. I have to say, given the "status" of Blue Water as a very high-end dining spot in Yaletown on any given night to just walk in... More

A colleague and I recently ate a Blue Water Cafe. Our server was excellent; personable, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered an appetizer and our server recommended featured wild salmon rolls which were very tasty. We both order fish, which was well prepared. I had a very nice local chardonnay and the bill came to $150. The ambiance... More

If you love seafood in an trendy atmosphere this is the place. We asked for an assortment of oysters to start, and the kussi was the best. Shrimp cocktail and crab salad appetizers were happily consumed. Then we enjoyed the sablefish and stuffed trout entrees which were cooked perfectly moist along with a nice French pinot gris. We left very... More

If you like seafood, this is the place for you. Extensive range, including lots of oyster choices, to seafood towers with a tasty mix, to sushi, variety of fish, and even elegant things for the meat lovers. Good atmosphere, friendly service.

There was nothing to dislike about this dinning experience! The staff was friendly, the waiter was amazingly knowledgeable about the items on the menu, and the atmosphere was really inviting. There were so many choices for oysters (most I'd never heard of), and they all have a distinct flavor all their own. Wish we had this place in Colorado Springs!... More
