For me one of the best measures of a restaurant is how they respond when things are not going according to plan. . .we arrived at 5:20 on a Saturday night hoping to have a quick dinner. Based on Trip Advisor ratings we were in for a treat! Although it was 5:20 when we arrived and there were plenty of... More

After moving my daughter from west end Vancouver to north Vancouver we decided to check out one of the local seafood restaurants and chose this one. Great decision. I had the fish and chips which was delicious. The fish was ling cod and was prepared in a light batter and perfectly cooked. Vet tender and moist. The chips were exceptional... More

Our experience has been two lunches. In both cases the seafood served was excellent, setting pleasant and service very good. There are non seafood dishes offered but we did not have them.

Planned a romantic date with someone very special that I recently met and searched for a place with a rustic but classy ambiance, delicious yet simple meals, with friendly and professional service. Fishworks deliver in spades! We reserve a cozy bar-style table in a bay window looking onto the street, where a monsoon was trying to wash Vancouverites away. Inside... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch Dungeness Crab Cakes -Wasabi-lime mayonnaise &... More

With so many great reviews on Trip Advisor we didn't want to miss Fishworks when looking for a seafood restaurant that was close by. Smart, minimalist surroundings welcomed us and the service was very good throughout. The food was excellent and the portions were generous - good value for money. The special of the day, halibut with a potato &... More

We were looking for a seafood restaurant on the north shore & decided to try this place even though previous reviews varied from really good to terrible. I'm glad we decided to give them a try as we all had a great meal. We went early but the place filled up rapidly. We like oysters & found them to be... More

The food is excellent. The ambience is high-end bistro-style. Sometimes (especially at weekends) the staff seems to be overwhelmed by the success of their great kitchen when the reservation system isn't working well. If you like a noise environment and busy and hectic staff around you allowto be placed at the bar. Nevertheless the extremely friendly staff tries everything to... More

We had dinner here last night. It is a nice cozy restaurant as others have mentioned. Tables are nicely spaced so you are not too close to other diners. A couple of tables had problems with the sun being right in their eyes while they were dining and the restaurant did not seem able to anything to rectify the situation.... More

This is the worst seafood restaurant I have ever been. Service was not bad, small place, a lot of tables, but their seafood was terrible, fish was not fresh, I would never ever ever go back there again.
