One of the better dining options in White Rock...

Came here with friends and family recently. I just had a caesar salad salad. They took half a romaine salad, charred it on a grill, then served it with dressing. It was kind of interesting. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. The place is more of a linen, upmarket sort of place, so it's not... read more

We went there on the last day my family was in town. They loved the food and we had a blast. The waitress seemed extremely nervous, that was a little weird. The filet mignon was good but not great. I made a reservation for patio early in the day but it was full when we arrived on time for our... More

On the outside this restaurant seems pretty quaint and cozy, the patio is nice but the inside needs some TLC. The wallpaper is starting to peel from the walls and the menu and wine list jackets are tattered and showing their age. One order of crab wontons as an appetizer and Angelhair Seafood pasta and the Duck as mains. The... More

We happened to run into this place after leaving from a massive disappointment at a restaurant on the east end of the beach. We noticed a special on crab benedict on the sidewalk menu and went in to give it a try. It was quite good, reasonably priced, and served by very competent and professional staff. We would happily go... More

Giraffe has been around ...we love the location...it is quaint and elegant. Foods usually good. I went with a friend for Friday brunch and we both were terribly disappointed. I had the seafood crepe which didn't have anything of texture to resemble shrimps or scallops or anything...very mushy....served with boring greasy potatoes.My friend's calamari was soggy and tasteless as well....

This is a fine dinning restaurant but having tasted the first bite of my scallops and chirozo appetizer all I could think was "YUM". The service is efficient and the server was knowlegible about the dressings and sauces and ways the food was prepared but did say a little would be kept secret...chef's prerogative I guess. Reservations are recommended and... More

My husband and I were walking along looking for a place to have lunch on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and decided to give Giraffes a try for brunch. We were not disappointed. We were seated at a table for two on the patio and were greeted by our friendly and professional waiter, Andrew. We chose a crab and avocado salad... More

We were 3 couples being served the Sable fish, Duck and Lamb. There was absolutely no wow factor in flavours and taste. Served on a plain white plate with no creativity made me think the food was cold (it was not). Seasonal vegetables of carrots is my default when no time or imagination is done. The appetizers of crab wontons... More

Four of us went to Giraffe for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. We all had the halibut which was excellent and very fresh (there were two different preparations available and both were good). The service was attentive and friendly. It was too cold to sit outside, but we could see that it would be very enjoyable in the warmer weather.... More
