“Last minute reservation, good experience. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We were staying at the River Rock and couldn't get into the restaurant there so we made a last minute reservation for 4 and took a short cab ride to the Boathouse. We only had 1 1/2 hours as we were booked to see a show back at the RR. The Boathouse is old but in a good way, kind of how the old Keg in North Van used to be. Cozy. As an added bonus it was Lobster Fest!! My mixed drink was good, and a nice bottle of wine was not exorbitantly priced. Two of us ordered steak and lobster and it was yummy but came without melted butter. We asked for butter and our waitress managed to deliver it while the lobster was still hot. The place was packed and she was very busy so it was a good effort on her part. The steak was perfectly cooked. The other two in our party ordered steak and stuffed prawns and both said it was excellent and they'd order it again. A great and fun dinner, we never felt rushed but managed to get back to the RR in time. I was kind of off the Boathouse after a very expensive and not great experience at the Port Moody location but this was redeeming. Next time at the RR I might take a pass on their restaurant and head back here!

“Great Forgotten Place with good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Boathouse in Richmond hit the spot when my mother and I were looking for a nice place in Richmond in the middle of some post-christmas shopping. We had been to other vancouver locations but not ever the Richmond one, which is a tad tricky to find due to one-way streets, but is nonetheless very convenient.
fish was great (salmon and their daily special). Great service, perhaps helped by the fact the place was very quiet in the period right after Christmas. good wine list with lots of BC wines and unlike most places in Vancouver, they didn't overchill the white. Better yet, it was priced without much mark-up!

We enjoyed our view looking out the marina and boats, though on a rainier day it might be dark inside.

We were sorry not to have thought of it years ago and will be back.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Decent food but the room smelled musty. Also, the room had a low ceiling and really lacked any atmosphere. For the money, one could do much better. I would not go back.

“Quality Not What It Used To Be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

We celebrated my sister's birthday and went for dinner with about 8 adults and 9 kids. We only had one server, although we had made reservations long in advance.

The restaurant is in need of some updating and a good clean. The food was just OK (at best) and the service was slowwwwwwww.... friendly, but slow.
