I booked this restaurant for my husband's 40th birthday as a surprise and following a recommendation from a friend I did request a table away from the serving area. We were given a great table in the main dining area - thank you. I was also impressed with the birthday note that my husband received - it made the night... More

My wife and I can't stop talking about how good the seafood is here. Amazing oysters and ridiculously fresh sashimi. The prices are high, but worth every penny for a special night out.

I recently dined here with a group of 8 work colleagues. We had a reservation at 8:15 for dinner, but our entrees did not come out until nearly 2 hours later. It took a little while to get all of our drinks, but appetizers arrived promptly. Then, we sat and sat and sat...It took so long that we jokingly asked... More

I took my daughter here and we had a great meal. The roasted squash soup with lobster was incredible although I will say that th texture of the carrot was a bit incongruous with the creamy elegance of the soup. It was fun watching the kitchen prepare, serve and flourish...a lovel spot

Vancouver is a favorite vacation spot for our "foodie" family. The city is so full of wonderful restaurants that you will never be able to go to them all. One you should definitely not miss is Blue Water. Definitely one of the top if not the top seafood venue in the city. Everything is very fresh and well prepared. One... More
