The nice surprise of the evening was the excellent table service we received. The best we have experienced for some time. Next delight at Dockside is the nicely separated table layout (no long squeezed in bench here) and third, fine city views. The food was OK, not stellar. The prime rib ($36) was the best dish, the chicken breast ($29)... More

Went on a Friday night pre-theatre. We had a coupon so we stuck to main courses & dessert. I had sturgeon and my companion had duck breast. Both were tasty and we'll presented. Service was fast and professional. Decor was cozy and view was fabulous. Would recommend.

Had breakfast here in November 2016. We were welcomed with a warm smile at the front by the hostess Tess. We were sat right by the beautiful floor to ceiling windows. Our server Taylor was very attentive and I could tell he was enjoying his morning shift. The manager was present on the floor. The food was yummy, good sized... More

Breakfast was incredible. Great coffee, great service, decent portions with delicious bites. Dinner was loud, still great service, but my food was doused in sauces which took away from the delicious cut of meat and local root vegetables.

I made a reservation for a party of 10 to hold a holiday dinner. Very disappointed to have Dockside call me to tell me they had unilaterally cancelled my reservation, especially since I have sent out invitations to my guests. Poor form!

I stopped by the Dockside Restaurant for a lunch with family. The staff were helpful and the menu had something for everyone. I settled for the beet salad and tomato bisgue and was overwhelmed by the tomato bisque, it was the best I've ever had. The price was a little high but the few of the docks and seaside was... More

The meal was very small with no attention paid to dietary requirements although clearly stated. Corrections were grudgingly made. Staff was not friendly and not efficient.

Long time Vancouver residents invited us to the Dockside for brunch and we were very impressed. The view of False Bay elevates this restaurant to something special. The airy large glass windows allowed the sunshine to pour in and warm the room on a chilly fall day. Service was very good, lots of good coffee and the food was exactly... More

We only ate breakfast at Dockside while staying at the adjacent Granville Island Hotel - the dinner menu is limited. But the food was nicely prepared and the service was efficient. Large windows offer great views of the harbor

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.
