Diner Reviews
  • "The Boathouse restaurant has great ambiance and a lovely view of the water. The outdoor patio is always a treat and the food is above average. Service can be a bit slow but our server was very personable and overall did a great job. The menu is varied and the wine list is quite good. The salads are my favourite and the fish and chips do not disappoint. I would recommend trying this place out as long as you aren't in a rush."

  • "Best spot in Tri Cities BUT .. decided to go for a late lunch knowing it would be a bit more intimate in the non peak hour. We were there 2:15 to about 4:15 pm, for the life of me the place is 5% full with a couple medium to large groups - why seat everyone back to back? I understand logistically for staff you concentrate in one area but with no sunset issue or view concern, at least provide a table space set up. Just don't understand why you would try to cram everyone in one corner instead of having a bit of an intimate afternoon. If the place is 5% and you have to walk around people and watch your chair, just gives poor presentation."

  • "We were looking forward to going to the Boathouse on a warm summer evening. It's a little more expensive than our usual mid- week dinners but we thought being outside would be worth it. I have never written a bad review before however I feel compelled to in this case because the meal I got was not worth the price. I had the grilled halibut and it was so overcooked that it had a rubbery consistency. I have never sent a meal back but I just couldn't eat it - the second meal was really no better. Service was very slow - not our servers fault she seemed to have too many tables to wait on. Overall a very disappointing experience:("

  • "Parkiing is an issue. There was none. Food service was slow, although restaurant was not full. The salmon ordered was undercooked. We asked to have it reheated. Instead a new meal was prepared. We finished our food, and my son left the building while my wife waited for the salmon. When it was finally served, she said that her appetite was gone, and would rather leave. The "manager" insisted that we take the food and that "he had this". He suggested that we take it home. Reluctantly, my wife accepted the meal. Much time had passed. I asked for a desert, to keep her company. The desert took almost 20 minutes to arrive. When the bill was presented, there was a full charge for the salmon meal, and the desert was not billed. We will not be back."

  • "The patio at the Boathouse in Port Moody is a great place to lunch with a small group, provided you are in the shade. It was breezy and right on the water, so the view was exceptional. Parking was not an issue and the restaurant was very relaxing. It's a great place to catch up with your girlfriends or to have a business lunch without getting caught up in the business of Downtown. Loved it!"

  • "We requested a particular area of the restaurant when we booked and were not informed until we arrived that it was "not available for reservations". The staff also neglected to set the highchairs we asked for, and when we told the hostess, she stood there blankly, apparently waiting for all the adults in our party to sit down so she could pass us our menus -- while the toddlers wandered around the table with nowhere to sit. The A/C also wasn't working, and it was a hot day. Staff were generally unapologetic regarding their own oversights. Food was fine."

  • "I chose the Boathouse, Port Moody, to celebrate our daughter-in-law's birthday. This was her first time at this restaurant and she had a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were seated outside and enjoyed the lovely scenery along with the weather. We ordered a lovely bottle of wine along with an excellent meal, selecting the Seafood Mix and the Salmon plate. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food and I know we all look forward to dining there again."

  • "We requested patio and got a great table. It was very sunny and there was only 1 umbrella. My wife had sunglasses and I sat with my back to sun so we were fine. However we did see at least 4 groups switch tables and another couple debate asking to switch because of sun in their eyes. They were all accommodated to what they wanted. Just wanted to point out a few umbrellas woul have made quite a difference and made your servers job easier. Thanks for reading my reply. We will be back. Greg Murray Gregorymurray@shaw.ca"

  • "The service by our server, Denise was outstanding, my family loved her. She was very patient with our changing request, love her energy. However, my steak was not quite what I expected, it was raw not cooked well. Also too many bugs around the table. It was quite hard to enjoy the desert due to the bugs. Salmon and pasta was good as per the family. We would definitely return again and hope Denise can be our server next time as well."

  • "I had to wine & dine out of town guests at the last minute from Toronto. Everyone was very happy & we will definately return. The only downside is the parking. Even though we had reservations, it was more than half an hour before we could park our car and it was in a gravel parking lot 5 minutes walk away. Didn't give a great first impression. Thankfully it was all forgottten about once we were seated!"

  • "Came in for a light dinner. Service was excellent, as was both the Fish & Chips and the Mussels in garlic sauce. Only complaint I would have would be that it was virtually impossible to find a parking spot."

  • "Our experience was great. The waiter Anni was knowledgeable and friendly. He knew his menu and the bwine list and made excellent suggestions. He was attentive to our needs while respecting our privacy. The food was great and made our anniversary a special evening."

  • "For a specialty seafood restaurant, their seafood is not the freshest or most local, this is due to their purchasing format as they are limited to the main generic suppliers which limits them from being able to provide the most freshest & local ingredients. Sad, seems to be the way of the world.....but for the general public...ignorance is bliss."

  • "A bad way to start your night when there is no parking available even the restaurant was half full. Parked almost 1km away. Food is always quite good. Service was quite slow this time unfortunately."

  • "My wife was very disappointed in the fish tacos. There was very little fish or other filling in the tacos, which were very bland and unsatisfying. Not sure, but maybe they missed a few key ingredients?"

  • "Have eaten here a lot over the past few years and have never been disappointed…until my last visit. Service was beyond slow and the food was sub par. Salmon was over cooked and I found a hair in my crab cakes. Took over 20 mins to get our drinks."

  • "Boathouse Port Moody is a great fine dining restaurant in the Tri City area. The views and ambience are fantastic. We went for our Anniversary and found the food and service very good. We had crab dip as an appy which was delicious - wish we had a bit more since we had more crackers than dip in the end. Both my wife and I ordered the Steak with Crab (me) and Lobster tail (wife). It also came with broccolini and mashed potatoes. I love my steak and crab and found it even better than her lobster. They were the most expensive items on the menu but it was a special night. I had the Molten brownie lava cake for dessert and loved it -next time I will add more ice cream - the little scoop is just not enough for such a delicious treat."

  • "Good food. Slow service when busy. We enjoyed food but service was slow due to busy period. The Waiter spilled sauce on my wife's dress and while apologized didn't offer any consideration. View is great by water. Nice energy if you like that kind of thing."

  • "Food is nothing special, only the location. Had oysters, quite good....and the seafood appetizer platter which was okay. We only go for the views and because it's walking distance for us."

  • "The boathouse is one of my favorite seafood restaurants so it's always good. I tried the mussels and crab-stuffed shrimp this time and both were very tasty. It's always a bit noisy in there, but that's because it's a popular place and it's usually full of groups and families. As I said, it's always good so I'll be back again soon enough."

  • "Overall, the experience was average. This time we went on Father's Day. The restaurant was very busy and we hardly got any time with our server. He took our order, another server served us our dishes. The original server came back once to check on us. It was a 2-hour plus dinner for 4 people. Plus there were a couple of mistakes with our order, which didn't happen before when we went on a non-holiday. We'd recommend not coming here on a holiday."

  • "The view is lovely but that really is what you are paying for when you dine at the Boathouse Port Moody. The food was below average - everyone in our party (7) had complaints (a few examples: overcooked meat, warm drinks, a replacement dinner taking 20 minutes). We are not people who usually complain. We will never dine at this location again. Seriously, there are just too many other restaurant options in the lower mainland with great food, service and views. I wish I had read the reviews online before booking - they say similar things to what we experienced. The Boathouse Port Moody needs to work on their food, service and customer care, but honestly, I don't think they care! They are simply counting on people going there for the view."

  • "It was my parents 67th wedding anniversary, the setting was great, it does get very noisy as the restaurant fills up, that would be my only complaint, I was also soup prizes they didn't offer my parents a special desert or appy because of the occasion, to be fair we didn't give them much notice, love eating tree the food is always awesome"

  • "Our server, Ashley, really made our night out there. I was there to celebrate, and she knew how to work our group so well. Even when one member of our party had repeated problems with her dish, she was so patient and did everything she could to ensure the night went smoothly. Meals all around were tasty, and Ashley provided us with great suggestions, feedback and honest opinions about our orders. Thank you Ashley! I also need to add a thank you to the hostess staff. My original reservation changed TWICE since I first made it: once was the # and the second was the time, as the event we were celebrating ran long. Most places we would lose the reservation, but even on a crazy busy Friday night, the Boathouse staff made it work. Thank you!"

  • "This place is great and as a Landry's member I visit the Chart House, Morton's, Schmicks, Salt Grass among others. Locally this is one of my favourite spots, however the service Saturday was not impressive. Not the servers fault, but it was packed and I feel you should get similar service on a Saturday as you do on a Monday. Hire more people during peak times to advertise the brand and get people coming more frequently. Just a nice dinner for us ... But a bit off. I will be back but hopefully this was an anomalie .. FYI I request patio, I understand its hard to guarantee there was a wait but my Landry's card didn't mean much. I also asked about the Presidents Club card and was told a manager would come to my table, he never came..."
