We ate here twice in 24 hrs. Once for a late lunch and breakfast the next morning. Both meals were delicious. The squid was amazing! The burger was one if the best I'd ever had. Only problem was the service for the breakfast was a little slow. That said, the staff was great as well.

Small selection of Beers but the in-house brewery is solid. I recommend the Pilsner. Pizza/Flat Bread was delicious. Pasta maybe lacking in flavour maybe too heavy on the cream which overtook the flavour of the rest of the ingredients. Friendly and attentive staff. Will return.

Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island is a great place to spend a couple of hours for lunch on a summer afternoon. Their expansive deck is positioned on the water and you get the full advantage of the morning and early afternoon sun. They have plenty of umbrellas and open air tents so no one has to sit in the direct... More

Food was excellent and the view is amazing! We only had breakfast there but I am convinced that the lunch and dinner menu would be just as delicious!

It is necessary to reserve ahead for a table on the patio. Needless to say, the view is worth much. Inside the restaurant is also very nicely decorated, complimenting the high end hotel and surroundings. The service is very good, the waiter came back to ask if everything was fine, and he refilled water without asking. We had lunch early... More

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
