I gather with a group of former co-workers twice per year, once in summer, once in winter. Years ago, we used to have a holiday cookie exchange. Then we said, scrap baking, let's just have a potluck brunch. Then we said, scrap December, let's go with January. Then we said, scrap cooking, let's meet in a restaurant. Then we said,... More

We had breakfast each of our three days at the hotel. Views down False creek are fantastic. Staff were friendly and prompt. Food was delicious.

Dockside restaurant delivers again. While we live local, Dockside on Granville Island feels like an away game. The outside area adjacent to the Boardwalk, the great tavern area and the open feel to one of the best west coast style restaurants you will find. Excellent Craft beer to start or for those who prefer, well prepared cocktails, a well chosen... More

The attraction here is the wonderful patio. The food is good but not great, the prices are not low but not outrageous. But it is a great place to sit and enjoy just being outside, without dogs or people bothering you for money

Beautiful summer evening, I really wanted to check out this deck that has been voted #1 in Vancouver. I had a reservation but they wouldn't accept it for the deck it applied ONLY for the inside dining but we managed to get a spot outside that had beautiful views of the bay and docked boats, the modern apartment buildings lining...

The Dockside restaurant patio is a lovely setting for a summer meal. I ordered the ciopinno which was very light! (I was still hungry). The rose wine was served warm and the ice cream sandwich was tough to eat. The service was good.

Great ambience, service, food and beer! The sablefish and halibut were cooked to perfection. The legendary chili squid was not really that legendary but the crab & shrimp cakes and sugar prawns made up for them. Could have drunk way too many glasses of Cartwright Pale Ale.

First of all, we made a reservation months ahead of time on OpenTable for a weekday afternoon. I requested outdoor seating, weather permitting. When we arrived, we asked to sit outside since it was a gorgeous day. No tables were available outside, which was a huge bummer. So, the lesson here is that they apparently ignore the comments section of... More

Delicious meal with fantastic waitress and serving staff. We sat on the patio and had a wonderful view of the water and the boats in the harbor. This restaurant may be a bit pricey for some budgets, but if you're going to "splurge" for a night, this is definitely the place to do it.
