Diner Reviews
  • "My friend and I went for lunch recently and she had asked for a table by the window. We got the exact table we wanted and thoroughly enjoyed watching the tide go out and the many birds that frequent the area. The food was good, the waiter was friendly. The only complaint I have is that the noise level makes it difficult to hold a conversation. I would still go back to the Boathouse and recommend this restaurant to my family and friends."

  • "We brought guests from Belgium to the Boathouse to experience the West Coast's best seafood, view and vibe! Belgians enjoy their seafood and our guests were keen to try West Coast salmon and particularly the cedar planked maple salmon found on the Boathouse menu...5 star!"

  • "Food and service is always excellent. Have always had a great dining experience at this location. Waiter noticed that I had indicated that we were celebrating our anniversary on my reservation notes and made a point of bringing us a desert with a sparkler on it. I always indicate on my reservation when it is a special occasion when I am dining out. This is the first time the restaurant acknowledged the occasion without us mentioning it."

  • "I have dinned here several times and this was the worst service and food I had. I will not be going back any time soon. Very poor service. The food was served extremely fast, got the main course while still eating the appetizer, in all we were finished diner in 20 minutes. Waiter never return to fill our water or the wine. Main course was cold."

  • "great steak sandwich...perfectly cooked...one rare and one medium rare. Good job. Waitress was excellent. We did not want to be served right away...just talking over a glass of wine and ordered later. She checked on us but did not rush us. Perfect waitress!!! Will certainly go there again. Recommend this restaurant for quality service and food."

  • "The server realized there were still crumbs on the table and quickly apologized and cleaned it up before I even had to mention it to anyone. He was also fully aware of my request for "a little sth special (ie. dessert)" for my friend as it was a birthday celebration. They definitely surprised her and even brought out a slice of cake on the house with a candle and all. My friend sure had a blast - so thank you!!!"

  • "The food was wonderful but the AWFUL service put a damper on what would have been a wonderful evening out. Once our food came the waiter disappeared. No one checked on us. Our drinks including water ran out. I finally went looking for our waiter without success & was offered help from another staff member who filled our water glasses, took our drink order then apparently never placed it because we had to ask a 3rd time. By the time they arrived we were finished with desert & ready to leave. The waiter eventually came back around to deliver the bill. No apology. Not even an acknowledgement. We WON'T be back."

  • "Excellent service, great waiter very helpful. Although the food was good the fish tacos were bland and the tortias were falling Apart made for a messy eating experience ."

  • "The Boathouse in Port Moody is comfortable, family friendly, lively, romantic, it is all things for all diners. The food is always very good, and the menu is always changing. The staff are amazing, warm, friendly and attentive, but you never feel rushed. It is the nicest place to meet up with old friends to catch up, or for date night, but if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, it is a nice place for family and friends as well. The view is beautiful any time of the year."

  • "We had 4 generations (8 people) at a Brunch for my Mother-In-Law last Saturday. When The Boathouse called me to confirm the on line reservation, they asked if it was a special occasion for anyone, and I advised it was my Mother-In-Law's birthday. They also confirmed we needed a High Chair (for our first grand daughter). Upon arrival they gave us a nice sized round table which was perfect for conversation. (Often in larger groups, the tables are long and rectangular; and one end of the table seems isolated from the other.) The Food was good and all served at one time so it was still hot. The waiter was courteous and helpful. In all a very enjoyable experience. The true test? We'll be back!"

  • "Great overall experience. Food was fantastic. Our server was also on the ball, he made some very good suggestions when it came to deciding on our meals and accommodated any change we wanted. Manager came and greeted us as well. The billing was correct even after we made a few substitutions. Wonderful place to go for a walk after your meal. Will definitely go back."

  • "The menu was great for all appetites and the Lobster Bennie was fantastic! The service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The view of the inlet on the sunny almost spring day just added to the ambience of this restaurant."

  • "We never cease to be captivated by the view a this Boathouse. If a particular favorite of ours on a summer evening on the patio. We have celebrated many special occasion at this restaurant mostly because it is one of the best restaurants in the area and they can accommodate almost any size group."

  • "our service was fantastic that night. I can't remember our waitresses name but she was amazing. Not overbearing and made sure we were always with water and hot water for our teas. The ambiance was great and other staff were friendly and smiley. My food was good however my husbands steak had a huge fat piece through it that he had to discreetly spit out at times. It's no ones fault, you ca't see it when you look at the steak as it's inside. But it was huge and he found it hard to finish his steak and for the price, it just made it hard to swallow on all accounts. He never wanted to say anything because he knows it's not the restaurants fault, but he was very disappointed and left hungry."

  • "Despite having booked the reservation a few weeks in advance, we waited another 15 mins for our table and then we waited over 1 1/2 hours for our meal on this very special valentines day dinner. Normally I wouldn't mind but we had a babysitter at home who we were paying hourly and had to leave at 8:30. We didn't start eating until 8. The restaurant was unprepared and overbooked for the night."

  • "We had valentines dinner at the boathouse in Port Moody. Overall, the food was good, service was outstanding but was a little right for space. I also wish we had a better selection instead of a set menu but it was still good! Would definitely go back!"

  • "I was the on v day too busy . Waiter had too many table and got dessert to go but never got it waited 20 min then left. Overall food good need more waiters"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good, however the service was very slow and the portions were small. At that price point one should come away satisfied with the portion. Further, I ordered a regular drip coffee with dessert not realizing that the price was almost $4. This is outrageous, even for higher end dining. Also, the music from the bar was clashing with the music from the restaurant. This took away from the overall ambience. I recognize that one should expect to pay for a "higher end" dining experience. However, the Boathouse fell short of that mark and better value can be had at the Keg."

  • "As usual, our dinner at The Boathouse Port Moody did not disappoint. It's nice to know that when you're going out for a nice dinner (sans kids, haha) that the food quality is going to be amazing and well worth the money (for dinner & the babysitter)."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Went for valentines dinner, we aware of the set menu, however, our reservation was for 7:15 and by the time it came to serve our entree, we were informed that our choices were sold out! We were given other options and waited almost 2 hours for our entree to be served. Also the dessert menu was sold out as well!!!!!! We were not offered a discount, free glass of wine, no compensation at all. I would never go to this restaurant for a special occasion again"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Was very disappointed with the food quality. Salmon was over cooked, and sauce on salmon was salty. Risotto was very salty as well. Received appetizers promptly, but received entrees almost immediately after. Way too fast. Felt like we were rushed. Will not be returning in near future."

  • "Been here before and has always been a good experience, however this past time wasn't the best. Took an hour and a half to get our food as well as being seated 25 mins past my reservation. Good quality wasn't as good as past experiences."

  • "We had a reservation for Valentine's day wanting a few appies. What I found to be the biggest disappointment/problem with my experience at this Boathouse was the hostess' attitude. When we walked in, we asked if there was still happy hour. Instead of politely informing us that only the set menu was available, the hostess declared in a snobbish, rude manner that there was only the set menu, followed by "well, we are all full tonight" before even asking us if we have a reservation. After we explained that we had one, she said "well, fine then". I understand the restaurant's policy of having only the set menu for V-Day, but I found it completely unacceptable for a hostess to greet customers in such an unwelcoming manner. We left without eating"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I were extremely disappointed in our Valentines Day experience. We had our reservation for 8:30. We still had to wait 20 mins to get our table. We were quickly told they had run out of the prime rib and the creme brulee, further reducing the already limited choices of the set menu. It took us almost 20 mins to get drinks on the table. And once our drinks were finished, it took another 15 mins for us to be asked if we would like another. The lobster bisque was flavourless and the lobster tasted fishy. The lobster ravioli was also fishy and the prawns were flavourless and under cooked. Our finished plates sat on our table while server after server walked by us empty handed. Expected much more for spending almost $200."
