I went to Dockside a couple of weeks ago for dinner. It waa a joint birthday dinner so it was a bigger party. Right off the bat, I could sense that our server was not impressed that he had to serve a big group of younger adults. They gave us set menus even though we never asked for it but... More

We're still talking about how much we enjoyed our evening at the Dockside restaurant. The food was so delicious, the service was excellent and the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows was spectacular. Our server, Mark, was very professional, had excellent timing and made great suggestions. The Caesar salad was truly the best we've ever eaten in a restaurant. I thoroughly... More

In Vancouver for10 days, including Christmas Day. I booked a table at the Dockside Restaurant before leaving England. Our booking was for 5pm. It was a lovely dining experience, first time we have been out for Christmas lunch and away for Christmas itself. My husband, daughter and I were amazed at the variety, exceptional choice and quality of food. Buffet... More

Had Christmas Dinner at Dockside and it was excellent. So much to choose from, from cold cuts, to hot food to deserts. We tried a bit of everything almost ;) and the service was excellent.

One of the better places in Vancouver for Christmas day brunch. Huge selection of dishes as well as good quality seafood dishes. The only negatives are the price does not include any coffee/tea/juices and an 18% gratuity is automatically charged.

The restaurant offers two New Year Eve packages: Dinner Package ($139.95 per person) followed by the dancing party and the party only ($34.95 per person). We decided to celebrate New Year 2014 by joining the party at this restaurant and bought $34.95 tickets. When we arrived we found out that we were not allowed to sit at the tables, even... More

I go to this restaurant almost every week for dinner or lunch and I have never had a bad meal. As for the service, well it is superb and I now know all the wait staff and am greeted warmly every time I get to the front door. We always have a nice table at the window and wait staff... More

I ordered a shrimp croissant and I got croissant with under ripe tomatoes and a hint of shrimp. When u said something to ask for more shrimp my husband was nearly done his plate by the time my request was taken care of. Not one waiter asked how my MEDIOCRE meal was during or after. Just asked if I wanted... More

Let me say that the views from the restaurant are lovely. Absolutely one of the better view restaurants in town. But as others have said, why are they squandering what they have with mediocre food and uneven service? This should be a destination restaurant for locals - but they seem determined to be a mediocre hotel restaurant instead. We stopped... More
