This beautiful restaurant is set right on the water and if you get a seating on the patio it is the best seating you can have. Relaxed, beautiful views, nice breeze. Food is delicious and well presented. Great staff who will look after you and not rushed in any way at all. Great place to go after work for a... More

Lovely location, reasonably priced meals. Our salads arrived almost immediately upon ordering, with light, to almost non-existent dressings. Service was prompt.

We chose the Dockside Restaurant for our anniversary dinner because we have eaten here quite a few times and the food and service had been good. Our opinions changed on the most recent visit. When the food came, my wife's rack of lamb was severely overcooked (she asked for medium-rare and it came well done. We eat out quite a... More

The setting was ideal outside on the patio overlooking the water and city skyline. Food and service were great. Recommend the Rack of Lamb and they make a pretty decent vodka martini lemon drop. I will be back.

There were 4 of us with dinner reservations at 5:30 pm before attending a 7:30 pm show at the nearby Arts Club Granville Island Stage Theatre. The restaurant is less than a 10-minute walk from the Theatre. The restaurant also provides a 15% discount on your food bill (no discount on alcohol) if you show them your same day theatre... More

We only ate here for Breakfast and the restaurant was mainly empty. Even so we waited close to 30 minutes for a very average, very expensive Breakfast. View is great though.

Just super place to relax, have a cocktail on the water after walking around Granville Island. Being outside on the water ion one of the big comfy white cushioned seats is great !

My rating is mostly for the location and the view of the False Creek water. On a sunlit hot day, no other place and no other view can compare. The patio is really perfect for enjoying the cool breezes and the expansive water. This is a great place for family visiting from out of town, as the location really shows... More

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.
