Good Food and EXCELLENT outdoor space

The food is high end and small portions, but cooked very well. I think I remember that everything was a la carte, so that makes the portions even smaller. So, it's on a pricy side, but if you're looking for an excellently prepared meal along with an incredible view, especially if the weather is... read more

We came here for lunch when visiting my sister who works at Emily Carr. We were seated quickly at a table right on the dockside. The view is fantastic. Portion sizes for the meals are adequate and each of our entrees were perfect. The only downside wax that they had no crayons for the kids' menu! My son was quite... More

Great Hotel Restaurant. If you are staying at the hotel I recommend it. Many good comfort food selections. Lots of events, so you may be bounced from restaurant to lounge, not a big deal though, service still remains very good.

Stooped by the Dockside while visiting Granville Island. While they had a limited menu and were a tad on the pricier side, the meals were exquisite. I had fish n chips and my wife had pesto gnocchi. Both meals were delicious and decently portioned. Would definitely go again. A must try.

Dockside Restaurant in the Granville Island Hotel has an amazing location with a beautiful patio on the water with views of False Creek, boat docks and the Vancouver skyline. The service was excellent so ask for Nathan if you want a memorable meal. He went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for our anniversary. The food... More

Decent food and wine selection. Odd service for a well known restaurant. Our server was not only talking to himself prior to approaching our table, but he wrote down our order incorrectly and he ended up giving our bill to another table! That's right, another table ended up paying for our bill, which was a bit more than their bill,... More

Good food is abundant in vancouver, good service seems to be lacking, especially at dockside. Two couples ordered two meals to share. We were asked if we wanted our meals split for an extra charge, we said yes please. One meal came split the other not, we mentioned this to the server and she took all the meals away even... More

Group of 10 friends booked a table at the outdoor patio on a Tuesday night for a birthday celebration. Glorious night! Fantastic water view. "Why don't we come here more often?" was spoken more than once. Got our drinks, no problem (Nathan makes a killer sangria, BTW) but then the trouble started. 40 minutes to get our appetizers out.

On Sunday the 5th a group of friends met here for bday drinks. I came a bit later and joined the group. We asked the server if we could move some seats so that we could all sit together. They said they had to ask the GM if this was ok. The GM came over and was very rude to... More

We dined at the Dockside twice during our stay and it was excellent. Great outdoor area and deck. If the weather is good, sit outside. You'll love the views.
