Diner Reviews
  • "Food was good and ambiance was okay. Table were a little too close for my liking. This was during dine out Vancouver so maybe that why..trying to fit as many people in as possible. It was noisy to begin with, but when the crowd thinned out to less than 1/2 of the restaurant (by the time we got to dessert) it was fine."

  • "We all enjoyed the whole experience. My wife who shares my birthday, shared her Wild Mushroom Ravioli with each of us and her comment sums up our whole experience... "I wish it would never end!" and we all said "Amen"! thanks to all the chefs and servers... well done!"

  • "I booked the restaurant last minute. Just had a quick look at the website and it was close enough to the venue we went after for a concert. Fantastic food. Incredible staff. Great view. I felt like I was in California. Our table was a little unfortunate right by the door. My husband's chair got bumped quite a bit but that didn't ruin our experience. We wanted to sit outside. We could've had a better table inside. We loved everything about the place and would recommend it to anybody who likes seafood :)"

  • "Prior visits the food was exceptional. This visit did not live up to previous dining experience. I asked for medium rare rack of lamb and received well done with a horrible sauce on top. My husband's fish was dry. Thank God for their chef's famous dessert. We had invited friends for dinner as well raving about the restaurant. We would have returned our plates however, did not want to embarass ourselves after raving to our friends. We did leave with extra desserts because you can always count on its consistency. From hereafter, it will only be for dessert and coffee. This was our anniversary celebration as well."

  • "For consistently excellent food and great service you can't beat Provence Marinaside. We go there quite often and have never been disappointed. For casual dinners with friends or business gatherings it is the place to go."

  • "Had the mushroom ravioli. Always love it. Noticed the portion has decreased significantly since the last time I was there (a few months ago); this was very disappointing. I'm not a big eater and I was still hungry."

  • "We both order the today soup Spotted pawns clear broth soup. We were a little bit disappointed that not even one pawn serve with the soup. It come with small pieces of asparagus some soy bean and very small pieces of pawns meat. The soup tasted good except too little of pawns meat serve with it."

  • "Stopped in for a Birthday Celebration. Service was attentive & very friendly without being bothersome. Bouillabaisse was the best I've ever had; very rich fish base. Great location with a lovely marina view. Nice wine list with an impressive number of wines being available by the glass. Highly recommend you give it a try."

  • "Had the 2 course lunch special consisting of 1 small bite (antipasto) of spicy sausages and a tomato sauce. The right amount of spice for the sausage and very nice tomato sauce but one of the sausages was grossly over-cooked. When I bite into the end of the sausages it was hard as a rock. The main dish was a spaghettini with prawns in a tomato sauce. Although the sauce was a bit tangy for me it taste okay and the spaghettini was cooked perfectly al-la-dente."

  • "We had a very enjoyable dinner, prompted by the use of a coupon special. The waiter and other staff were very attentive and the food was almost excellent - the fish just a tad over cooked. Such a wonderful location!"

  • "We live in Yaletown and frequent this restaurant quite often. Made a reservation for lunch to entertain clients. Not the place to go if you want to have a conversation. Very loud. Food was mediocre. The server was excellent and ambience okay. much better in the evenings on the patio."

  • "Food was good, but service was not as I had remembered. We were definitely not impressed and will probably not return for another try. A couple of our dishes including my main entree I ordered didn't come out until we followed up with our server. By the time it did come out, most were done with theirs. We were a group of 9 so 18% gratuity was automatically added which is usually totally fine by us. However, when we asked the server to give us the difference between the total bill (which included gratuity) and what was already paid on a credit card, he gave us the amount before the tip that was paid. Basically, we tipped on top of tip for service we didn't feel like it was deserved. If the opposite was true, then not an issue at all. "

  • "The food is consistently good, great service and wonderful ambience. You can't beat the location and we went for a nice walk after dinner and even picked up a few groceries from Urban Fare."

  • "My wife & I both enjoyed every mouthful from appys to mains, to dessert. We shared a couple of tasty "bites" from their special menu - warm Mediterranean olives, bocconcini wrapped in prosciutto & grilled artichokes. We both had the halibut which was done to perfection. Hers came with 3 spotted prawns which she said were the best she has ever had (there were only 3 - would have been nice to have one or 2 more). We especially enjoyed the Spanish wine we ordered - delicious! I had the chocolate with raspberry for dessert - another winner - and we both very much enjoyed the sherry from Jerez which topped off a wonderful meal."

  • "Our group ordered several of the waitresses suggestions and they were a full range of what the menu has to offer. The oysters were fresh and we found the different selections of fish to be fresh and tasty as well. The portions were appropriate and the different selections were great. Our compliments to the entire staff. And, if you have the opportunity, a table outside with a view of the harbor is a must."

  • "Food was super tasty and innovative. Great selection of drinks, friendly, attentive service from our waitress who was actually fluent in French - a nice surprise for my guest from France. Scenery is lovely with lots of people out walking their dogs along the sea wall. Great spot on a nice day for dinner on the heated patio. I will definitely be back. "

  • "Your menu featured spot prawns, they were only three! You have to get more spot prawns to be have your menu features spot prawns. It was an insult to us who like spot prawns. The waiter was very good. Walter, was his name."

  • "We are over their brunch; the menu hasn't changed in ages and it is way too noisy, but have been enjoying dinners there on off nights. Their specials are good. A nice selection for everyone. And the service is always very good (as is their wine list for a family restaurant)."

  • "We have eaten lunch or dinner at the Marinaside perhaps 15 times over the last 4 years. Generally it has been very good but this time it was very noisy and the quality of food uneven. I was quite pleased with my selection but my two partners who selected top-end menu items were disappointed. It was not up to their usual quality. Service was good however so perhaps it was just a bad day for the chef. I will still recommend the Marinaside but with caution."

  • "Went for brunch on a sunny morning and thoroughly enjoyed it! We shared both savory and sweet dishes and they were both delicious!!! And the patio was the best in Yaletown!! Will definitely revisit!"
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "I met a friend here for lunch, we started with a warm bocconcini appetizer wrapped in proscuito-–divine, followed by the entrées, wild mushroom raviolis and the seafood spaghettini, both recommended by our very pleasant and helpful server and we weren't disappointed. The ravioli melts in your mouth bathed in a light buttery, herbed cream sauce so tasty that you'll want to save bread to sop up every last drop. The spaghettini was a symphony of finely orchestrated flavours. Perfectly ripe tomatoes, grilled tiger prawns and plump juicy scallops with just the right amount of sauce to coat the pasta, but not overwhelm it. I wish I'd had room to try the desserts, but we were both happily sated, so I'll save that for my next visit."

  • "Expect a great meal as Provence Marinaside. You won't be disappointed. The 'bites' were excellent (and very reasonably priced), the halibut was outstanding and our server was great. I would definitely recommend Provence as a high quality place to eat. And the location is perfect for people watching and walking along False Creek after dinner. "

  • "We were a group of five and some of us ordered the set menu with wine pairings "Avril Poisson", which was very good value. The bouillabaise starter was very good and the sturgeon and halibut were perfectly cooked and the wine pairings were very nicely chosen with the stand out being the dessert wine-delicious. The other diners also had great food, steel head trout and crab were well presented and beautifully cooked. A very attentive waiter who looked after out needs splendidly. One of our party was a visitor from England and she was very impressed. Overall a very nice evening."
