So surprised and delighted. We went for lunch today. Waited 15 minutes for a table on the deck. Great cleaning and spacing with COVID. Very friendly and knowledgeable waiter. The food was the hit with us. We shared a calamari with two delicious sauces. Crispy...and yet moist. Very delicious. Shared a Cuban sandwich. House smoked pork was delicious. Two of us came away full and so happy to find food In Vancouver that has a sophisticated approach to old standards. We’ll be back!More

This place was a wonderful place to eat and sit outside on a sunny day and take in the day! Food was decent and waitstaff was nice and helpful! Inside has a nice atmosphere also. Can take a walk after dinner along the river!

Best pizza anywhere. I was surprised to find such good pizza in a restaurant that is not devoted primarily to pizza. In addition, my wife had Ahi Tuna and it was about the best she has ever had. The restaurant was very safety minded regarding...cautions for CoVID and eating on the patio in 79 degree weather on the river, with a mild breeze was about as good as it gets. We met Chef Mike, who is not only a great chef, but a very funny man, and very modest. It was enjoyable to visit with him. The manager brought him to our table when we raved about the meal. Our server was Andrew. He was great. Very attentive and very pleasant. I have read reviews mentioning parking. Best bet is to park down the street where there is a ton of street parking and the walk is useful after a meal although a walk along the river is also a nice after dinner treat.More

We have enjoyed Beaches for over 20 years. The food and waiters have never failed us. Today was no exception. Our server, Jamie was fun (even with a mask), efficient, and attentive. We highly recommend Beaches.

Great restaurant and bar. But the parking lot can be a problem as it's popular. Wonderful wood fired pizza, steak, and seafood. Polite staff and service employees. Good view of the sail boats, Mt Hood, and river.

I had the house cioppino and a Caeser salad and both were excellent. The cioppino is abundant with a variety of seafood and even includes sausage, potatoes, and corn which adds both texture and contrast to the seafood. One of the best cioppinos I have...ever had! The views of the Columbia River from the deck are outstanding and my service was also outstanding (Jeremy). I highly recommend this restauarant.More

What a different experience than usual. They changed items on their menu, and not for the better. Ordered fish and chips. The fries were soggy, not crisp like they normally are. Fish was over-cooked. Ordered calamari, they changed the calamari. It used to come with...an aioli sauce on the side, which was good. Now they drizzle the calamari with aioli sauce and another type of sauce. Not good at all. I mentioned to the waitress three different times that I did not like it and was ignored. Another family member ordered a salad that she didn’t like, ate at least half of it and told the waitress she didn’t like it and was given a free salad of her choice. Another family member was served a salad that had no salad dressing on it. They finally brought her the salad dressing. Another family member broke a glass of wine and was given a free glass of wine. But yet I was given no compensation for the terrible calamari I was served. And it was my birthday lunch, yet everyone else was compensated except me. I didn’t complain about the bad fish and chips. I have had the fish and chips and the calamari several times before and it was always good. Not this time. Also one of the salads on the menu has been changed to a totally different salad but has the same name on the menu. There are a few other items on the menu that have been changed so be sure to ask before ordering. So after spending $34 on myself for my birthday lunch and being disappointed, I won’t be back. Not sure why everyone else was compensated except me. Happy birthday to me I guess.More

Went into eat with my family few days ago so excited to dine out. We had reservations to which we were early by a few minutes so we checked in and waited. 20 to 30 minutes pass past the reservation time and they still havnt...sat us. I go up again and they ONLY STATED THEY HAD TO SEAT SOMEONE ELSE. so another 10 to 20 pass and we finally get our seat. This whole time the front looked poorly managed with little to no assistance. Shrugging all this off we get to our seat and order also took what seemed like forever. Then we didn't even get our food it was maybe half right when we got it and one plate they couldn't make so we got out food and my wife literally had to sit while they made her something else. Obviously, we were just about done with our meals when she got hers. Was a HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. They comped a small salad big whoop. Wasted my time and $$.More
