We went to the Blue Canoe with some friends and had a fantastic time. The location is amazing, the staff were polite, but the food and service were only average. There were six of us out for dinner, and our food did not come out all at the same time. It came in bits and pieces and we had to wait a long time before we could all eat together. The food was also not as warm as it could be. I ordered the lamb shank, and it was just OK - nothing special. I was surprised how average the food was given that their menu is not that cheap. If a restaurant is going to charge $30+ for an entree, it better be exceptional! I recently ate at The Teahouse in Stanley Park, and they have a similar menu and prices, but the food is exceptional. I would be willing to give the Blue Canoe another try, but they need to do a better job if they want to keep my business.
