If you're staying by the airport this is a great place for seafood before heading back inland. Great menu, great service, priced on the higher side, as you might expect in Vancouver & near the airport, but it's good food. Very accommodating for special dietary requests too. The only thing I would recommend they do differently is to highlight locally... More

This is a beautiful, comfortable, relaxing space. We were there with a large group (8) the service was excellent, food arrived quickly and wait staff were very attentive. The food was good. Mash potatoes could have been hotter and smother but the taste was great.

I was excited to go to this place for lunch as it has views of the river and an interesting atmosphere and blazing fireplace inside. The portions were large and fresh, but the calamari and fish and chips seemed overly salted. The servers were extremely well trained and friendly and I would go back and give it a second chance....

Had supper here and was the best seafood. We had just come off a cruise and this was one of the best meals we had had all week. I had the Mixed Seafood Grill. Excellent, even the vegetables were delicious. My husband had the Sablefish and it was very good. He is a picky eater so it had to have... More

One would think that the Calamari in a Seafood restaurant should be outstanding. Well, the chili dipping sauce is indeed very good! The tsatziki sauce is average, but not as bad as the small pieces of squid in huge amounts of brown-bread batter that get sold as Calamari here. NO! Service was professional but not extraordinary. This was my final... More

The servers are very attentive and courteous. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the maple flavored plank salmon. Both tasted the same. While the portion size was fine, we were disappointed with the taste. Based on the prices, we expected more and have had much better for a lot less money.

As with most reviews, the portions are small and the meals are overpriced. I ordered the mixed seafood grill. It had Salmon(I substituted with Cod), crab stuffed shrimp and a skewer of scallops. The Cod was good, but small and I only received 2 stuffed shrimp and my scallop skewer had one scallop and two shrimp. It came with a... More

Much like its counterpart in English Bay, I've been dining at this location, now, for a few years and have come for practically every occasion: "just because;" birthday celebrations and anniversary dinners. Each and every time has been exceptional -- the servers have always been very attentive and friendly, offering good recommendations when necessary. The location is convenient: it is... More
