Yummy food, amazing views

delicious food, excellent service, helpful friendly staff; enjoy their signature Sunday Brunch (perhaps the excellent Canadian Salmon Benny?) with Jazz accompaniment

Recently had a lovely dining out experience here. Food was very good, some of it excellent. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. And the view was awesome. I really enjoyed the wine selection.

Dockside is well regarded for seafood restaurant and they do that up well. I felt like some prime rib and the delivered. A very flavourful demi glaze with seasonal veg and a yorkshire along with the required garlic mash. That along with a 2010 Township 7 (a BC wine) merlot and it was a perfect match.

Compared to the wonderful meals I've had there in the pasts my recent two meals were a disappointment. The menu selection was uninspirig, many of the offerings were unecessarily heavy (Yorkshire pudding fried in duck fat) and the taste delivery was underwhelming. Hope they bring back a more fresh and imaginative menu to go with the beautiful setting.

As I reviewed the hotel and now the restaurant. Do yourself a favour and try both. You won't be disappointed.

We didn't eat here, just stopped in to try the beers they brewed. We were very disappointed. We did a sampler and couldn't find one that we would want a whole pint of. The bartender was very nice and attentive though.

This restraurant is outstanding. It is location is on the water at False Creek in Vancouver and has a great view of Vancouver over the water. The food was excellent. I had the rack of lamb and it was cooked to perfection. The service was also excellent. Highly recommend for a special evening out.

It was our first time at this restaurant so we brought the kids! Right from the get go our waiter "Jules" was awesome! He tended to our every need. He was polite, witty and knowledgeable... we couldn't have asked for a better waiter. He made our whole evening! The view is fantastic and the food very good. We definitely recommend... More
