The offered dishes are prepared and cooked well, yet lack imagination. The dining hall is quite loud, privacy or decent conversations are difficult. Staff can be a bit slow unless you are a well-known regular who tips 50% plus (our friend was, so we were lucky but could observe service standards being drastically lower at the tables around).

We were seven and we all had something different. We were all satisfied; the meat was good and tasty, the fish looked good and the others loved it. Very near to our hotel.

Great location, great ambiance, great food. Not cheap but justifiable. Main course tends to be small, so order an appetizer and/or dessert.

Service was very good - although I think we were literally the only table in the restaurant when we were there (we were there for a very early dinner - around 5 p.m. - on Labor Day). Food was good - I had cod (delicious), a couple of members of our party had burgers, which they loved. One fellow had... More

I don't know what some people see as this being good service. I don't care how much the server smiles at you, slow service, bringing out dishes that are improperly cooked, from raw to burnt, the wrong items, over seasoned. This is the territory of a good server. Over the years we have eaten at Richmond, New Westminster, etc.

Waitstaff was very knowledgeable, I had the halibut and it was very good. My boyfriend had the sockeye salmon and it was quite distasteful. I had a piece and it tasted old, certainly not fresh; it even tasted "fishy." We were compensated for the salmon with a free dessert.

Short walk from our Hotel (River Rock) to the Boathouse. Our hotel gave us a coupon for desert, thanks. Had a good meal, started off with calamari, which was very nice, a bit of a kick, certainly not too much. I then had the Coconut Cod, which was fresh, my wife had the seafood pasta, which I tried a couple... More

Just got back from a business trip to Vancouver. It was a whirlwind time but one night after the dust settled I found myself seated in the hotel restaurant of the Westin (out at the airport). Well the place was nice but hotel restaurants always made me a little skeptical . .. So I looked out the window and saw... More

The was just a short walk from our hotel and the front desk clerk recommended this. For dinner I had the swordfish blackened, topped with mango chutney and a side of rice. The fish was cooked to perfection and the dinner was excellent. Dinner for two with drinks $115.00 with drinks.

I had a great waiter and everyone was friendly. While I really liked the bread, the food was just 'ok'. I had a salad and a halibut. It's hard to mess up a salad, but it wasn't great. The Halibut was a bit overcooked and didn't have much going for it for $40.
