We enjoyed a lovely lunch outside. Service was a little slow, waiter never introduced himself our his role, thought he was the beverage person but came back later for our order. Our shaved Prime Rib sandwich was excellent, loved the au jus, great fries. I thought they were reasonably priced. Second time we have visited when in town.

We stayed at the Granville Island Hotel so had breakfast here and it was very good both days. They have a variety of romantic seating areas outside around the fireplace and by the water. Great place to socialize.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. The view and ambience of the patio is hard to beat!! The food is hit and miss. The Cobb Salad is consistent and good. The other items that I have eaten do not hold up to the price. I have found their aioli on various sandwiches to be tasteless. The Shrimp croissant... More

Had the dockside omelette 3 days in a row. Fantastic. Cant speak to their dinners, but if breakfast was any indicator then: great food, nice views, hit/miss staff, very pricey.

This restaurant is totally over hyped on its own website and very misleading. It is located a long way away from the centre of Granville Island where the real ambience and vibrant atmosphere is at it's best. The restaurant feels like a canteen attached to the hotel next door. The plastic tables and noisy kids didn't get things off to... More

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and take family and friends there. The Staff are all just wonderful, friendly and give the best service in town. The quality of the food is extremely high and delicious. I always check to see if this is available for booking when I need to eat out.

Gathered with friends for a pre-fireworks lunch mid afternoon. After a frustrating drive into the city it was a relief to get seated and a cool beverage in hand. Had a water side table on a brilliant day with views of the False Creek waterfront. Great selection of beers and a great wine list. I had one of the best... More

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
