3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Chosen for lunch based on the high trip advisor ranking. The calamari appetizer was very good. Nice meaty hunks with a marinara dip (not like the rings of batter so often served). I had the shrimp salad sandwich, also fairly good but could have done without the slab of lox. Shrimp would have stood up well on their own. My... More

Great view. Great service. Great food. Really enjoyed our lunch here. Good selection of pastas, seafood and brunch including Gluten Free and kids menu options. Very busy, but the staff were helpful and attentive. If you like white wine, try the Pentage Pinot Gris. And we couldn't get enough of the mountains as the backdrop.

This restaurant is a complete gem! I've eaten here multiple times and the food is excellent and will not disappoint you. The staff are kind and very accommodating. To top everything off, they'll give you a blanket to keep you warm on the patio as you take in the beautiful view of wonderful Deep Cove!!

Four of us enjoyed an early dinner on the outside patio. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed being close to the water. Three of us had white salmon and my husband had black cod. All four dinners were delicious. My husband and I shared the hummus appetizer which was excellent, and not skimpy . Our friends ordered the parmesan... More

I have downgraded this restaurant as of today from a 5 to a 3. I made a reservation and could only get in at 11 or 1:30 so as it was my son's birthday we chose 11 - He is a chef so we are well aware of restaurants. The View is gorgeous over the deep cove and the outdoor... More

Dear customer, I am sorry for the last time you dined with us at Arms Reach. Unfortunately, some menu items, such as the gorgonzola bread, can take longer then other items on our menu. However, the poor quality of your caesar and eggs benedict is unacceptable, and not the norm of the bistro. In lieu of your poor dining experience,... More

We had a gift certificate for the restaurant and planned a trip out to Deep Cove on a warm sunny day. Finding a parking spot was a bit of a challenge. They don't take reservations at lunch but we arrived at 1:00 and while no spots were available on the patio, we were immediately seated inside which was fine as... More

Stopped in for a drink and appy after a Quarry Rock hike. Had the calamari based on server recommendation that it is fresh (not frozen) and hand prepared each day. Service was exactly on point and one of the better service experiences I've had in the last while!

This cosy restaurant is a staple for North Shore residents and visitors alike. It is as comfortable on a winter night as it is on a summer evening; soak up the view of Quarry Rock in the distance or the twinkling lights of Deep Cove with its bobbing boats and rustic, dock walk. The culinary finesse of the chefs shines... More
