Great Good

My review is for dinner. Phenomenal - all around. If I had room I would have just stayed there and eat all night!

Tuesday evening, our meal, with no appetizer took 50 minutes to get to our table. At $38.00, the halibut was so dry that I had to take a sip of water to wash down every bites. We also had the lamb and was not impressed. Lack of flavours! Will not return!

Great setting and tasty options. We tried a variety of entrees and loved them all. A visit to the table by the chef was a highlight. Would love to go back at sunset.

4 of us had dinner on the patio. All the meals were fantastic and the service was the best! We were the only table sitting outside but the staff didn't forget about us. They were attentive without being intrusive. It was honestly the best dining experience I've ever had.

First, the server was overwhelmed, I saw 2 servers for the whole restaurant, I don't blame her for the service. Everything was slow. There was a really big table in the restaurant and a wedding party, which might explain things, but an establishment like this should be able to handle these situations. The food was nothing special and was pricey.... More

Old, expensive and isolated. There is nothing to do or see. Not enough professional personal working here.

Had our camera bag & camcorder stolen from the back corner of the restaurant. Staff, specifically the Manager Levi, did not even as ask any of the staff to see if they saw it. Someone who worked there obviously knows what happened to our camera bag as we were the last ones to leave the restaurant and sat in the... More

The food is excellent and prepared with high quality ingredients. The staff are courteous and friendly with a good knowledge of the menu. I had the halibut with the prawn risotto. DELISH!

My boyfriend and I love to eat out. We frequent restaurants in Yaletown, Nelson and the Sunshine Coast. A couple days ago we had dinner at the Rockwater and it was, by far, the best restaurant meal we have had in a very long time! I had the halibut, my boyfriend had ravioli. We finished with cheesecake and chocolate ganache... More

Run down and overpriced. The food is hit and miss, my husbands steak dinner was nothing to write home about and they forgot to put cheese in his omelet the next day. My chicken dinner was overcooked and dry, the prices were all high. There's no gift shop, cabins and rooms poor for what you pay. Don't let the word... More
