Had a wonderful meal at a table of eight. One of our guests was the original owner of the restaurant. Perhaps that was an added boost. The food was very good and prepared to perfection. Service was courteous and correct. Fresh,fresh and deliciously good. Next time we're in Vancouver this is a... read more

It was my first trip to Vancouver, so I asked the concierge at our hotel to recommend the best seafood restaurant in town at any price point. He immediately recommended Blue Water Cafe and made a reservation for us. The restaurant is in an area of downtown called Yaletown, which appears to be a warehouse district being revitalised into a... More

We had dinner here based on the fabulous reviews online. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and we opted for outside because the weather was so beautiful. My boyfriend had oysters which he said were delicious, and a crab stack that was recommended by the waiter, which was fair, for his appetizers. I had the mixed green salad with beets... More

We had a dinner at Blue Water Cafe with my girlfriend on 30th of July. Experience where generally ok, but very mediocre on the basis that the restaurant was supposed to be one of the better ones in Vancouver. At first I was pleased with the looks of the place. Seemed promising. First let down was the ignorance of the... More

We dined at Blue Water on our most recent trip to Vancouver. The seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared, and our waiter was so professional and attentive throughout the evening. Many consider this to be one of Vancouver's best restaurants, and I would agree.

We went there with friends for a special meal and we were not disappointed. I don't even know where to start: amazing service, amazing cocktails, food was unbelievable and great atmosphere! Our waiter was so sweet and definitely made a difference! Highly recommend the place!

Good Food, good Service! We were there with our 1 year old baby. Although they don't offer kids menu but they can make special simple pasta for our kid.

Service, food, atmosphere were all superb! Take your wallet, it's expensive, but in every way worth that expense! Our waiter was so attentive, without being intrusive and he was so well-versed on the items on the menu it was amazing! Truly one of the best restaurants we've ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
