The views from the table are worth the visit. The food was good but not out of this world. The smoked salmon chowder could have used a bit more salmon and the bun it came with was tasteless. The roast beef sandwich was good but the fries were just okay.

I guess if you can afford to pay top dollar at the Granville Island Hotel then you should expect to pay the price at Dockside. The food was good but a bit too much money --three pieces of toast with the omelette ?? Of course you are paying for the view. We would go to the Granville Island Market and... More

Great food, they were able to take care of 16 people very easily. We received 15% off of our meals as we went to theatre sports afterwards.

To our benefit the restaurant was not that busy on a weeknight and we parked very close.  The service was very good.  We enjoyed their daily flatbread special and crab cakes to start. For our mains we went with... More

The setting is magnificaent and the view is great . The food is well prepared .However, the service is less than average. Servers who seem too comfortable in their setting to take an interest in the diners. It is still a nice place to sit and enjoy the view, but it will not be a dining experience.

It was a nice experience - flatbread pizzas were nice, as was the chowder, salads and Dockside Burger!

This restaurant had been on our bucket list for a long time and we finally managed to visit it. Elegant premises at the very Eastern end of Granville Island adjacent to the Granville Island Hotel, pleasant view over the moored boats on False Creek, morphing from an airy early evening mood to sparkling diamond-studded night vista with the lights of...

This is a go-to spot on Granville Island. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The food is wonderful. The view is hard to duplicate. Suggest that you take a cab as parking on the island can be tricky.

Neighborhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
