We heard many good things about Giraffe so decided to try it out last Wednesday. It opens at 5:30 and we arrived at 5:40. Only one table was full and it did not appear that they were expecting a large group. However, we were told that they couldn't seat us before one hour. We will not try it again.

It had been several years since we last dined at Giraffe and we decided to try it to celebrate our anniversary. We were not disappointed! It was a beautiful White Rock evening in July so we sat outside to enjoy the view. The food was outstanding, I had the lamb which was the sirloin served with wild mushrooms - one... More

I have never seen more grumpy, tired looking staff then at Giraffe. This was our first time there and we will not be back. We felt a chill every time one of the two wait staff walked by and it was still very early in the evening. Would not want to be subjected to their mood right before closing time.... More

We had our anniversary dinner here and the staff went out of their way to make it special for us. Food was amazing and the location can't be beat. On the strip in White Rock but, even when you are outside, the way they have it set up you don't feel like everyone walking by is staring at you. Loved... More

We had an early dinner at an outside table with a beautiful view of Boundary Bay. The main course was of good quality but the portions were on the small side. You do really need to order two courses to feel satisfied. The waiter knocked over the bottle of wine (fortunately white wine) but didn't offer any recompense for the... More

We came here on a Saturday night as a party of six and were seated in a separate little corner that was like our own little area. The food was excellent all the way through. I loved the seared scallops with chorizo as an appetizer and the pork medallions as my main course were very well prepared. My dessert was... More

This restaurant has been consistently excellent since I moved to White Rock in the 90's. It is small and intimate with excellent service, great view of the ocean, and not once have I ever had a bad meal. This restaurant is my husband and I's first choice to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or just a fine good meal.

I've eaten here many times over the years and the food quality is excellent. I noticed that quite often the main water seems hurried and it's like they want you out fast . It's not relaxing. I generally eat early . Recently I was the first to arrive as soon as they open at 5:30. I ordered my favorite dish,... More

The food is fine dining at its best. The waiters are probably the best on the main strip of White Rock Beach area. The drinks menu is impressive. It is a small restaurant and the food is superb. Yet—on the night I had dinner there, we were asked to hurry because they had a second sitting and time was running... More

If dinner is anything like the Sunday brunch - I can't wait to go back! We were the first table seated and the last to leave - enjoyed a full 3 hours there with wonderfully attentive and intuitive service - and a touch of humour as well. The four of us started with champagne and cassis and then all had... More
