the food was average but we were quite disappointed with our server. He was very unfriendly. We kept experiencing a very cold draft all evening. I wouldn't rush back.

We enjoyed every minute of our dinner at this restaurant. We came in before dark and could admire the view of the bay, the city line and the boats. Several huge fire pits with fire on surrounding the restaurant added to the ambiance. The waiter was excellent, so friendly, kind and efficient. But the mussels! The freshest ever, and the... More

On our last night in Vancouver, we decided to go to this restaurant and spoil ourselves a bit. The hostess was lovely and took us to a great spot on the patio. The views were spectacular! All of Vancouver was in front of us! And the harbour was gorgeous! We had prime rib, my husband's favourite, and it was so... More

you want a patio - you got it. you want great beer, you got it. you want great wines by the bottle or glass (and value), you got it, you want great food, you got it. Go to Dockside - you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I decided to have dinner her after seeing a movie in the afternoon. We love this place for the view of False Creek and the food is good. The staff are knowledgeable and nice. Lots of parking in the evening and just nice all around. Give it a shot and get out of downtown.

After walking from the West Point Grey area of Vancouver to Granville Island on an unusually warm September day, we were in need of some cool liquid refreshment and nourishment. Their IPA and especially their dark lager more than met the refreshment requirements and the Pilsner Battered North Pacific Cod Fish & Chips met the nourishment requirements - a large... More

From the moment i walked in something seemed off. The hostess looked at me like i had 2 heads and didn't say a word to me. I assume she was waiting for me to strike up conversation. I told her i'd like a table for dinner. So far so good. I sat down and waited. And waited. Finally a bus... More

At this restaurant, we are sitting by the water on Granville Island, in the heart of Vancouver. The ambiance is extra and the food delicious. This is French cuisine with a hint of Pacific Cost. I will return many ''encore''....

I haven't dined at the Dockside Restaurant for a couple of years so given it was a lovely day I decided to enjoy a repast with a nautical view. The both of us selected the prime ribs with duck fat Yorkshire pudding. Bad choice. The prime ribs arrived well done instead of medium rare and lacked the flavor that one... More

The Dockside is a brief walk away from the bustle of tourist, and is a relaxed atmosphere with a nice patio near the water. The menu is diverse, and the bar and wine selections are good. We had fresh seafood for dinner, and it was excellent. The service staff was a bit reluctant to check on us, but our overall... More
