Good Variety

We had lunch and the chowder soup was excellent. The cup is almost as large as the bowl. Enjoyed the tuna tacos. Very quiet for a week day lunch time. Would like to try it for dinner.

We recently ate there while staying at the Westin - it came recommended by our valet who gave us a coupon for a free appetizer! Dinner was great, very good service. We would definitely go back!

The location near the airport is nice enough and we found the service to be good, but the food was just average. Not bad, but not especially great either. For the price you are paying you'd hope for a fresher meal.

I was the lone person at the bar so service was great. Ryan (bartender) was personable, had a great command of the local beers and menu. He was actually a good ambassador for Vancouver. I did not find the prices out of line with similar seafood restaurants as some of the reviews have stated. I had the Sockeye salmon burger... More

Ate here with some friends on Friday evening. First of all, I believe the gift card they sell at Costco is somewhat misleading, as there are a number of requirements you have to follow in order to use it. The money you save you buying it, ($20.01), is gone because you cannot use it with specials, or discounted meals, it... More

As always I chose a steak with prawns which was cooked as requested. My wife had the seafood grill. Most items were good except the salmon was dry and over cooked. Service was... More

We love this restaurant, the service, the ambiance and certainly the food. We go there 5 or 6 times per year for special occasions. The fish is always served fresh and their lobsters are probably the best in town even if it is a little bit to pricey for my taste. Very good wine pairings and excellent service. The cold... More
