“A great little bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Crescent Beach Bistro has given us consistently delicious meals and with a short stroll down to the beach the location can't be beat.
At the beach there are several restaurants that serve high quality meals and Crescent Beach Bistro continues to stand the test of time among them with its close attention to the quality of its cuisine.
The bistro reflects perfectly the high end, quaint village that it calls home.

“A Step back in time...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Went to the Crescent Beach Bistro with girlfriend to celebrate our birthdays. This place is like stepping back in time and could definitely use a "restaurant makeover." The inside of the restaurant is dark and dingey. The tables are old and rickety, the chairs antiquated, the dishes are scraped and scratched and the utensils are like something from a dollar store. The service was slow and the food poor at best. It is over-priced, and over-rated. I would not return.

“Food for Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Passable service and a long wait for the food, but when it came... all was forgiven. Five diners ordered five different dishes and left with hardly a qualm amongst them. Skip the pecan pie (too dry) and opt for the chocolate esspresso mousse. It's the perfect end to a fabulous meal.

“great food not cheap but excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

I go here on celebratory occasions or with a "special" friend.

The food is not low cost but it is fantastic value. I have not really had better food anywhere even in the US or when I worked on 5 star + cruise ships.

The place is fairly small and a bit dark, but it is worth the visit maily for the food.

Its a quiet place not a people watching joint or a big atmosphere.

Can be large family groups on weekends earlier on.

“Best Seafood Entrees on the Semiahmoo Peninsula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

Crescent Beach Bistro is our family's favorite restaurant. We have been going there for a number of years and we have never been disappointed. This consistency is obvious why it has been ran by the same couple for many years.
