“Simply Superb”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This restaurant was recomended by the folks at the front desk of the hotel we were staying at. Can't say enough about it, We both felt it was near perfection in every catagory. We were given a warn friendly greeting upon arrival, Seated immediatly, and had perfectly mixed cocktails and a basket of warm bread in front of us within 5 min.

I had the beef filet and my gal had the seafood pasta and we both agreed it was one of the best meals we had eaten on the entire trip.

Our waitress was fantastic, very funny and attentive to a fault we could not have asked for better. For deseart we split a massive piece of cheese cake that was so good it made you want to slap the cook!

All things considered, this is as good as it gets. very highly recomended, - Enjoy

“Outside and not Uptight”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The Boathouse experience was a great time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere in Vancouver. The meal was tasteful and the staff was prompt and helpful. We never felt rushed or pushed. They were most accommodating to our needs. The restaurant was suggested by a friend and it was a good choice. They even changed the reservation time for us so we could explore the area.

“Fabulous Seafood close to the Westin Wall Centre”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We ate here twice while at a conference in June. It is an eay walk across the street from the hotel. They accommodated our groups. Service was great and the food was awesome. A nice selection of seafood and other dishes. I would definitely go back!

We were looking forward to coming here... but a little disappointed after.

Service was pretty bad, slow and uncaring. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant for lunch when we were there, but it still took about 15 minutes to get our beers!!!

Food was so-so. Not bad... but not the best that's for sure. The oysters were small, of low quality and overpriced for what you get. My wings were disappointing too. Maybe it was an off day for them?

We wont be coming back. Overall it was 'ok'. Not terrible, but there are far better places in the area. The Boathouse, at least in Richmond, is overrated! Try eating/drinking at The Flying Beaver instead, way way better!

“YUMM Great seafood”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Our last night in Vancouver getting ready for the flight home the next day, we found the Boathouse Restaurant within a short walk from the holiday Inn. Reviews on the cell phone were not all that favourable but it was close and we didn't have to take out the car again.

The seafood salad was amazing. Everything was really fresh. My friend had the fish and chips. Also an amazing meal with beer of course! Service was a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry.
But the service was good and friendly. We were early for dinner around 6pm. Since it is a bar I imagine the local crowd doesn't even show until 9:30 or 10pm.

Want good food and good drink? Get it here!
