    Customer service...Found it lacking. We used a coupon for the high tea. Once the server got us the tea and the multi-tiered tray of goodies, we were left on our own. We had to flag the server down to get hot water for our tea. Never once did the server check in on us. Wouldn't recommend it.

    We had been to the Fish House a number of times before. The food and service has always been good. This time, the service was good. We had a few issues with the food. My fiance ordered the seafood risotto. The seafood was good, but the risotto was very salty. We told the waiter. He offered to bring another one, but my fiance did not want to send the whole thing back because the seafood was good. So she asked for a side of risotto, which our waiter brought. I ordered my steak medium rare, but it was more medium to medium well. I let it slide. Our waiter gave us a complimentary desert and a little more wine for my finace.

    The savory items were good, but the sweets were not as expected. Table wasn't set up until we arrived so we waited for a bit. Then, we had mentioned in our reservation that it is for high tea but the staff didn't read the notes at all. Luckily they have made extra otherwise we would have wasted half a day and parking. I don't think I would go back for high tea again. I think the place is a bit outdated for the price they are charging.

    While we live 1000 miles from Vancouver, whenever we are in that city we make it a point to eat dinner at the Fish House. Superb food with relatively unusual dishes like smoked black cod. The service is always very good, but this time we were fortunate to have a waiter who truly knew the menu and wine list. Bravo Vytas! If you're in Vancouver area, and like sea food, don't miss this place!

    Waiter seens only interested in tips, but basics he did not know. For example: for the espresso no sugar was offered, Due the low service we only give 10% tip, after that he show us that, the restaurant wants to be a gourmet restaurant - but only the prices are gourmet, quality of food was only ok.

    We were with friends from out of town who had asked us to take them to a fish restaurant and the Fish House certainly didn't disappoint. We were a party of six and every one of us found the meal we'd ordered was really outstanding. The service was pleasantly efficient, extremely professional and came with genuine smiles. We will certainly be going back to eat here, with or without guests, because everything about evening was such a delight

    My wife and I were visiting Vancouver and wanted to try the Fish House in Stanley Park. It was exactly what we had imagined -- classic old school place, with a modern menu, great food and service! My wife had the evening's trio of black cod, halibut, and arctic char -- all of which were good. Service was prompt and professional. We'd love to return.

    We had an awesome experience at the Fish House in Stanley Park. The location is romantic, tucked away in the park, but easy to find with signs posted. We had 3 kinds of grilled fish and a surf & turf with scallops. It was all brilliant, cooked to perfection and the service was above what we could ask for. I picked up the bill, and found it to be all reasonable. Will go back. Its worth driving for.

    The Fish House has been around for a long time in Stanley Park, and unfortunately, it is starting to feel a bit like that. The clientele appears to be mostly older people, and the menu probably haven't changed in years. That said, the food is still good (the Salmon Wellington was superb and the Duck paté was fine). The service, however, was not all that attentive, and they even stupidly cranked open the overhanging tarpaulin while we were sitting under it, ruining my wine and drinking water with small black flakes from the old fabric and mechanism. (they replaced it after I pointed it out). Overall it feels a bit overpriced and a little stale, but nevertheless, it is a grand venue in the park, and very pleasant near sunset.

    Walkway to entrance near parking smelled of garbage and foyer had raw fish odour. Dinner service slow to begin, not enough servers on a Friday? Once we got it, was very good, only due to server Corwyn. Appetizer salmon 3 ways best described as a smear and a blob or a lick and gulp. Arctic char excellent but hot sauce and heavy potato croquette a clash. Halibut excellent but small -3 small clam shells on plate had nothing in them. Its sauce contains bacon, fine if you eat meat. Dessert good buttermilk tart. Another server expected us to wait 20-30 min while they whipped butter for the bread-they ran out! Problem solved by Corwyn. Expensive venue for dinner. Manager didn't seem interested in the diners. Reception staff friendly and helpful.

    What a gem of a restaurant. Read other reviews, and thought we just have to go here for our special dinner on our two week visit to Vancouver, BC. Needless to say, you will not be disappointed with the outstandingly wonderful and attentive service, the excellently prepared food, and the overall wonderful experience. Even the choice of music (and played softly) was perfect for the setting and the mood. We've been to the Fishhouse a before - but for their excellent afternoon tea. This was our first time having dinner here. For us, this now ties two other restaurants (from Mazatlan, Mexico, and Melbourne, Australia) as the best restaurants of the world we have eaten at. Enjoy!

    Dining in the historic Stanley Park Fish House is like stepping back in time to the 1930's. The setting is elegant but casual and with music from the 40's lilting in the background very comfortable. The service was first rate and the seafood exceptional. A very pleasant experience.

    Last Sunday, we (4 of us) had high tea at the Fish House and find that it was good if you have a big appetite. The sandwiches are appetizing, and the pattisseries are appealing. However, we had to have 4 orders and do not have the options of having 2 orders, whereas, other restaurants give customers that option.

    We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor as one of the top ones in Vancouver. the booking from London worked fine, and we were seated on time. We sat indoors although there is external seating; on a Saturday night it was quite busy and loud inside; we did have a spotlight glaring down at us to start with, but they did dim it on our request. The food, naturally weighted to seafood but with meat selections too, was most impressive - Halibut 'sous vide' (nice way of saying 'boil in the bag'), smoked black cod, seared Arctic Char and so on. Service was friendly and pretty efficient once they got going.

    Had family visiting from out of town thought dinner in the park would be nice way to show off the city. None of us had ever been there and it was a great evening.The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and helpful with suggestions and the food was fantastic. There was a lot going on in the restaurant so it was an upbeat place. Would diffidently go again. Nice setting having the restaurant in the park.

    Many restaurants begrudgingly put a couple vegetables on the plate with the main, but here they were very generous with the veggies, at least on the two fresh fish of the day selections we chose. Yummy sockeye salmon. I would not order the ahi tuna salad again since the potato salad dressing was interfering with the ahi taste.
