Great spot

Stopped by for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. The service was good even though the place was very busy. The food was flavourful and arrived very quickly. The view was wonderful and would return again.

My partner and I have gone to Dockside a long time ago and had a good experience. We were a group of 13 who had been invited by visitors to Vancouver for dinner. My partner and I ordered the Moroccan rack of lamb which was supposed to be spicy. The lamb rested on lukewarm chickpeas and carrots and the lamb... More

We went to this restaurant at around 3 PM… My wife had the Cobb salad which she described as a 2 out of 10. The chicken was absolutely tasteless and the salad did not seem fresh at all. I asked for a Bloody Caesar not too spicy, and got a Caesar that was too spicy to take more than one... More

I chose the Dockside because of its patio. It looks out over the water to Yale Town. A pleasant serene view. Here's the thing about Vancouver and its waterfront, it is always cool in the shade. Regardless of how hot the day, one needs only to step into the shade and the heat is gone. The air is cool unlike... More

This past Sunday, my husband and I treated guests from out of town to dinner at the Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island. Upon making the reservation, my husband made it clear that it was a special occasion. We have been to this restaurant several times because the food is typically good and the location is interesting for visitors to Vancouver.... More

The view is excellent as is the food. We were a party of 4, staying in the wonderful hotel. Felt very well taken care of by our waitstaff and everyone loved the food.

Good food good service. Gorgeous location and quite well priced for the False Creek location...other restaurants would have been significantly more expensive for the same meal.

I've heard so many great reviews about this place. Normally I stick with downtown restaurants Glowbal group or Hawksworths and such, but since my wife and her friend from Japan were touring through Granville Island anyways I decided to come give it a try. August 10th 2015, 3:30pm on a sunny Monday afternoon. Perfect for patio seating. I was dressed... More

We ate here twice - dinner and breakfast. Both meals revealed similar strengths and weaknesses. The view is terrific, the menu interesting and the service helpful. The meals were generally good but some food when it came was lukewarm and had obviously been standing awaiting collection. Getting the cheques took forever and the change even longer. A latte coffee was... More
