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

Coming off of the Ironworkers Bridge driving North North East,there are two exits that one can take that being the first and third . The signage will apprise you of such. The first exit will lead you by the beautiful Indian arm route which you can enjoy as you make the journey through an First Nations reserve and some beautiful... More

We love Arms Reach Bistro. Being Deep Cove locals, this restaurant is a go-to for us. The food is always good and so is the service (and we always run into someone we know, which is nice). Everything on the menu is good. The baked spaghetti is to die for. If you want something lighter, the chad salad and the... More

This is our "go to" restaurant...the food is always good, there's great service, a lovely view and ambiance, and we often see other "locals" at Arm's Reach. (I'm going twice this week for birthday celebrations!). We have a couple of vegetarians in our family group, and the chef is willing to accommodate - for example "the CBC" (delicious Curried Butter... More

This is one of the best restaurants on the North Shore, and definitely the best restaurant in Deep Cove. The location is super cool, it's romantic and the food is fabulous, esp the pastas. Good wine list, just an all round great place for a fabulous dinner.
