A word from PIER 7 restaurant + bar - 'Shipyard Square' North Vancouver
With 180° views of Vancouver, from the bustling Port to the green belt of Stanley Park, no other restaurant in North Vancouver gets you this close to the water. PIER 7 is built on the boardwalk of the historic Victory Shipyards in the revitalized waterfront of the Lonsdale Quay area. The restaurant is open 7 days a week for lunch, brunch, and dinner, with ocean view dining on two levels and outdoor dining featuring a fireplace and comfortable seating on two patios. The menu is seafood focused, with an emphasis on boat-to-table choices, and seasonal offerings of meat and poultry. The lively bar area is a favourite stop after work for professionals coming home on the nearby Sea Bus and the burgeoning ship building industry adjacent to the pier. We look forward to welcoming you to the North Shore’s newest neighborhood restaurant and lounge built in the most historically significant area of North Vancouver. See you at PIER 7 soon!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We reserved tables for a large group but arrived with an additional 3. The staff accommodated us quickly and efficiently. Great service and the food was outstanding."

  • "We went for our 9 year wedding anniversary! We sat out in the patio and had a wonderful view. The food was awesome!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Lose the TV, improve the window coverings so sun does not blind patrons, and turn down and/or rethink choice of music. Otherwise an excellent dining choice!"

  • "We had a very enjoyable evening, with a gracious and accommodating server. The appetizer mussels and bouillabaisse entree were excellent, oysters not so much."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Although the food was enjoyable, the terrible service ruined our experience. For example: -we (party of four) ordered a first round of drinks, and had to wait a really long time for one of the beers to arrive (it became clear that it was forgotten). -the server took our order, and then returned to the table to take our order again...? He forgot that we had already ordered. -we waited over 30 minutes for our food (no explanation or apology from the server of manager)"

  • "I took a colleague visiting from Beijing here for a lovely lunch. She was very impressed with the locale and how "untouristy" things are just a Seabus ride away from Downtown. The service was very friendly and helpful. And the food was very good all in all. The poutine has a light touch which we both appreciated---a nice introduction for her. The only thing less than perfect was that there is only one crab cake on the share plate, which was tiny compared to the other two share plates we ordered. But it was eagerly divided up and consumed. I will bring out-of-town guests here again to show case the stunning city and the local cuisine."

  • "Great food, outstanding view of the city. Mike our waiter was attentive and very professional."

  • "We went mid-week and it was a disaster. Granted, two of the entrees and the appetizer were really good, but not good enough to draw us back. Not likely. The other two dishes (Bouillabaisse and a Prawn dish) were beyond awful. The Bouillabaisse was like Heinz tomato soup extra chunky style. The bread served with it came with a chipotle mayo (WTF?) There are times to get creative and times to master a classic. Their version is just wrong wrong wrong with a side of wrong sauce. So bad it wasn't eaten. The prawn dinner was also a huge disappointment. The prawns while a nice size were hard and rubbery. The side vegetables were flavoured really strange, nothing complimented anything. ugh. That's about it. The waitress didn't care."

  • "Great spot will be going again...caught the happy hour and special on local oysters.... Mixed it in with the night market. Well worth and will bring my out of town guest there. Service / Portion Size / Food Quality / Ambience and View .... frankly it has it all....Thanks"

  • "We love having a spontaneous night out and that was exactly the case this week as we hit Pier 7. We have enjoyed this venue a number of times and I never hesitate to return. We easily booked, got our special request taken care of and for myself...well I can't sit at the first table offered. Hence, the new table next to the water on the patio was excellent. Quiet and personal. Good food, Pascal gave us great service...a successful night out!"

  • "My prawns were over done making them tough and having a charred taste. On the other hand the scallops were done perfectly. The hamburger dishes that were ordered were thought to be sandwich like on bread but were presented on a hamburger bun. No other complaints about the quality of food though and service was excellent. A fabulous view was enjoyed."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "this was our first visit and we were very impressed. We will return!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "It took at least 10 minutes before our server came over. She didn't seem to be very knowledgeable about the dishes. We had heard many good things about this restaurant so we were disappointed. The food was good. The service was terrible."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Met a good friend for dinner here, had a novice server who let us know it was his first day on his own. He did just fine, a couple of small glitches but rectified immediately. The food was very good, had the crab cake which was excellent, but portion was very small, and diver scallops with risotto, also very good. The noise level got a little louder as we were finishing our meal, which I don't like. When I am dining I would like to converse with my friend without having to raise my voice to be heard. All in all though, a very nice experience, and the view is to die for!"

  • "Terrific way to see more of the city by taking the Seabus to North Van then a very short walk to this restaurant on the water. Wonderful views back to the city, large deck and facing south so sun all day, and probably great sunset in evening. Food was fine, but nothing outstanding. Good bet for visitors for a pleasant trip across the harbour for lunch or dinner"

  • "I reserved a table for my family for Father's Day. We were originally seated at a beautiful table with a great view but we relocated due to a planning error to a table with an obstructed view. My father and I both ordered the clam pasta and after our order was taken, we were notified that they have run out of fresh clams but will be still putting canned clam meat in the pasta. Unfortunately, we only received one fresh clam in our pasta each and the texture of the canned clam meat was dry and chewy. We ordered dessert and waited a lengthy amount of time for our dessert as the kitchen was running behind. Over all, I was very disappointed in the restaurant service and quality. The view was amazing from our original table though."

  • "Have been to this restaurant a couple of times. Service and food are very good. The view is the best part. Tried making a reservation for the patio but was told upon arrival that reservations only cover inside seating. Doesn't make sense to me but oh well."

  • "We had a great time, service was perfect, food was great...table was unbelievable...best view in North Vancouver"

  • "Went to celebrate out anniversary. Beautiful spot on the water, similar to The Sand Bar. Would have appreciated receiving a dessert or at least being sat at an especially romantic, quiet table (rather tham the patio seat by the door) as we were there for a special occasion but I guess not all restaurants to do things like that or perhaps it was overlooked. Would go back again- as that's not what it was about, but would certainly have made our evening especially memorable. "

  • "I think this is the best location and view on the North Shore, it is wonderful to be at waters edge with lots to look at. Charming servers and good food !"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I had ordered the pier 7 burger and was brought the grilled chicken sandwich. After eating a few fries I was than told I was brought the wrong burger. The server took it away and was told my pier 7 burger went to another table and apologized and said the chef had to make a new one and that he was going to talk to the manager. 15 mins later I was brought the food and not once were we asked how the food was and no manager was brought over to speak to us and nothing was done to our bill.This was my first experience at this restaurant and I would not recommend this place to any of my friends as the service was not great."

  • "One of the best VIEW restaurants on the North Shore, menu needs a bit of work, very friendly service, lots of parking available."

  • "Restaurant has a lovely view. Food and wine and service was great"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Very nice setting/venue. Great views! A good brunch selection on the menu. Friendly/helpful staff, and good service. I had a reservation but the place wasn't crowded, so it felt like an undiscovered gem of a brunch spot in North Van. We sat inside, but there was a great patio overlooking the water. We had a baby with us and they were very accommodating. I only didn't select 'kid friendly' above, because it's such a nice place, and at a busier time, maybe it wouldn't be an ideal spot for kids. Only complaints were the Smoked Salmon Benny was average, and my meal said it comes with fries or salad, so I ordered salad, and then got charged extra for it on the bill?? Good place overall though, and the coffee was good and strong too!"

  • "Great food, great service and outstanding view and ambience."

  • "For a weekday the restaurant was very busy. Service was very slow, although server was very nice. Found the food to be overpriced. Shared items was good. We ordered both salmon quinoa and the beet salad. Salmon was very dry and the beet salad was more of an appetizer. Beautiful view!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Went for Mothers day brunch, Salmon Benny was very good. Nice setting, we sat inside. The patio was full and noticed that it was protected from the breeze, looks comfortable. Went for a nice walk along the waterfront and took in the history of the shipyard. Another great feature is the dock access when coming from the water for an afternoon break. will hold boats up to 20 meters for 3 hrs. Upstairs was closed, however offers a great spot for large gatherings and socials, nice spot for staff Christmas party."

  • "My daughter took me to Pier 7 for Mother's Day brunch. It was outstanding. Everyone was welcoming, the service was wonderful and the food was great. It was a very positive experience. As we were leaving, we saw our server running back across the parking lot. Her last customer had forgotten to take his credit card and she chased after him to return it. Now, I call that service above and beyond! Thanks Pier 7 for making my Mother's Day even more special."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were a party of three celebrating a special birthday and were seated outside with a spectacular view over the harbour. We all had fish of some kind - crab cake, salmon and halibut - all this was very well prepared and delicious. Although Pier 7 was busy, we didn't feel hurried and could have stayed longer. The glass surrounding the patio, the glass windows and the glass awnings all make the sound reverberate around - but it was manageable."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The view at Pier 7 is outstanding and the location is fantastic. We strolled over to the Lonsdale Quay afterwards. The food is fresh. The beet salad looked lovely. The service was adequate but not the best. We were seated near an open door that was cold and drafty. I asked to have the door closed but it was left open. I got up and closed it myself but it was still opened again. We had to ask to have our coffee refilled. The toast was missing from our order. They forgot to bring jam for the toast and we had to ask. On other visits, the service was better. Otherwise, we enjoyed our brunch and the tasty food."

  • "We had some business people here from Chicago and wanted a place on the water for the view. The table was awkward for the servers, too tight to the table next to us, and right beside the patio door that kept on opening. It was loud because of the music and even though there weren't very many patrons, the service was nonchalant. I had originally booked lunch there this week as well to celebrate a friend's birthday, but was so disappointed that I cancelled and we are going to a different place. It's a great location but they need to decide who they are appealing to."

  • "We have been going to Pier 7 since it opened several years ago. Started out as a nice quiet good neighbourhood restaurant. Seems like lately the noise level in the restaurant has become so loud my wife and I couldn't even carry on a conversation at our table. The music volume is turned up so high everyone in the restaurant is yelling to be heard. Won't be going back anything soon."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We went for lunch and it was quiet business crowd, however, ive been before for dinner. The food is so-so; perhaps a hit and miss place. I had a quinoa salad that was dry and salty, but the broccoli soup was great. I like this spot for the ambience not the food."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "We made a last minute reservation and didn't know what to expect. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. Mike our waiter was a true professional. He knew the menu, explained things easily, and answered our questions. He was attentive but not over-bearing--a true professional. We will visit again next time we are in Vancouver. It is a true gem that we highly recommend!"

  • "Went here because it was close to our hotel & was next to the water. The menu looked terrific and we ordered the seafood nachos to start with gnocchi and ling cod as the mains. The plate of nachos was huge, unfortunately they were just nachos. Very little seafood in them and there were a couple of bites where we got something so spicy it almost ruined the whole meal. The gnocchi was fantastic, best dish of the night. The ling cod was terrible, the fish was chewy and tough. The curry sauce for the cod was bland and was like watered down soup, the veggies were all over cooked and the wilted spinach was soggy green blobs of tastelessness. Overall the service was good, a little slow but very friendly and always there when we needed something."
