Fantastic Food but the Service was Outstanding!

It was our first time at this restaurant so we brought the kids! Right from the get go our waiter "Jules" was awesome! He tended to our every need. He was polite, witty and knowledgeable... we couldn't have asked for a better waiter. He made our whole evening! The view is fantastic and the food... read more

First of all, this restaurant is located at a most picturesque spot on Granville Island, overlooking the lovely False Creek. The hotel lobby is elegant & the restaurant follows suit, the perfect spot for a special occasion. Our dinners were both excellent - prime rib and pesto gnocchi. My Caesar salad was very good and my husband's butternut squash bisque... More

While in Granville Island we decided to try this Restaurant as it has a nice view of the harbor. The place is elegantly casual, clean and appealing. The food (I had Prime Rib) was well presented, tasty and the portions were generous. Could it have been a bit hotter, but no complaint. The cost was standard for Vancouver, competitive at... More

We went with friends for lunch and all were disappointed with the food this time. I had mussels but the portion was really small for a $20 lunch entree, and was over-cooked. Our friends had halibut and chips and they said the fish was dry and just edible. Service, however, was good, and we had a nice table overlooking the... More

Our meal and evening at the Dockside was perfect. We were a group of seven from teen to seniors and everyone was satisfied. Our server was excellent, the food delicious and the view beautiful. I have never had restaurant food served as hot as what I had here. The chairs were super comfortable and invited relaxation after a day of... More

Grad students and scientists alike had a great time with a little split level dance floor with very attentive staff on three levels to serve you drinks. Great location on a beautiful street, friendly door and bar staff.

We were here for both dinner and brunch. Food is mediocre at best. Our dinner server was so moody, mostly morose, sullen and unobliging. His bus boy an absolute gem. Brunch server much better. Beautiful view of Vancouver

A dinner meeting with colleagues was facilitated by great food and wine with a spectacular view of downtown. The dine-out menu was delicious - the cod was perfect...despite it not being Atlantic Cod! Beautiful restaurant, great seating and the view across the water to downtown was worth the price (which was very reasonable)

I went to Dockside a couple of weeks ago for dinner. It waa a joint birthday dinner so it was a bigger party. Right off the bat, I could sense that our server was not impressed that he had to serve a big group of younger adults. They gave us set menus even though we never asked for it but... More
