Try the Green Thai Curry
This place was right below my hotel. The food was awesome and the service was top notch. Highly recommend to anyone in the New West area!

The walls and seats needed a good cleaning other than that it was great

My husband and I were impressed with the level of service that was provided from the time we entered the restaurant to the time we paid the bill and left. We often expect a high level of service from a restaurant of this calibre, however, are often surprised that we do NOT receive it...The Boathouse New West did not disappoint! We really appreciated that we were seated in the main area of the restaurant and after about 5 minutes we were approached to move as a more scenic table just opened up. Our server was polite, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious - the bread was warm, our appetizers were served in a timely manner and our main course was cooked to perfection. Thank you for creating a great experience for us!

The meal was great - what
The meal was great - what we both wanted. We were hoping for a table by the window but I hadn't reserved far enough in advance. No big deal. We were mostly there for the great meal and we weren't disappointed. I had the Steelhead (always my favourite) and hubby had the Maple Glazed Salmon. The rice was weird - too perfumy for him and he doesn't like broccolini. But it was great and we'll definitely be back.

Great spring crab menu
The stacked crab salad was delicious. Also enjoyed the ginger lemon creme brulee

It's great that the restaurant is kid friendly, but some parents need to understand that kids should not be allowed to scream and jump around. This has nothing to do with the restaurant, just the parents who clearly didn't care if you were able to talk and enjoy your meal or not. I have four kids so I'm an expert at this and I would not take my children, or would take them outside for a time out, if they misbehaved.
The food was great, the service was excellent so apart from the screamers we really enjoyed our dinner!

Amazing Food !
This was our first time at the New West location and I was very impressed. The food was delicious.

Go for the curry chicken plate, the one with shrimp on it!! I forgot the name, but it was one of the best dishes I have tried at the boathouse!!

Dining at the Boathouse
It is always nice to go to the Boathouse in New West for dinner. The menu has multiple choices to suit everyone's appetite and desire. I love the spring fresh menu. The hardest thing about being at The Boathouse is chosing just one entree!

Simple Choice for a Family Dinner
Went to the boathouse a few times for special occasions with family. Great food, awesome service, pleasant atmosphere.

Beautiful Memory Made
We had the best food ever this evening. We are foodies by nature and thus a bit of a snob about food prep, but there was nothing short of perfection with our meal. It added to the special nature of the evening. Thank you and our compliments to the chef. We've never had calamari done so well, melted in your mouth. Just perfect.
We recommend this restaurant as they have found a great kitchen staff. The wait staff were very enjoyable and entertaining, As a person with mobility issues it is nice to find a place I can get in and out of that is with ease and spacious. For this I was doubly grateful.

We eat here once in a while; service usually very good; new server? very slow, not busy but not attentive to our dining; experience was much longer than needed.

An After-Work Treat
I'd like to compliment the freshness of the ingredients I had in the the ahi tuna tacos and raw oysters.
The ahi tuna taco's wasabi aioili mayonaise and hoisin-based sauce were particularly good. I had the ahi tuna taco at another location before, but this location makes these same sauces better in viscosity and flavour-wise and manage to keep that up consistently. The wonton taco shells were c-r-i-s-p-y. The tuna was obviously very fresh since I could see the gloss and plumpness on the meat and taste the subtle tuna flavour. The sauces' salty-tang contrasted well with the sweetness from the firm juicy mango pieces making every bite a joy to eat.
The oysters were fresh, crisp, and juicy with just enough sea water with the oyster flavor.

Happy 33rd Anniversary to Us!
We had an absolutely lovely evening on June 28th - our 33rd Wedding Anniversary!
The restaurant was moderately busy, but the noise level was very tolerable, and conducive to a romantic chat with my Hubby.
Our Serve Samantha was a Peach - very attentive and accommodating; right on top of her game! She made the evening special for us.
We have had our Company Christmas Parties at the New West Boathouse for two years running; and will be back again this year.

A great time
My family was celebrating a special occasion. We had requested a table by the window. We were granted the request. The waiter was exceptional: present, attentive and helpful. The restaurant ambiance at the New Westminster Quay is wonderful. The hostesses are obviously trained to make sure the customers are happy. Great place to celebrate!
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice for Special Occasion
We enjoy this spot as the food is always very tasty and the ambience wonderful with such an amazing view of the Fraser River.
We are never disappointed with the food, but the price of beer has sky rocketed! Our waitress was wonderful.

My wife and I were looking
My wife and I were looking for a nice place to enjoy a quiet dinner, we were not celebrating anything special just a nice idea. The Boathouse provided us with an outdoor patio on a beautiful evening beside the Fraser River. The service was excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. The appetiser and entre presentation was pleasant and the flavor was of a high standard, which is what would be expected from a restaurant with the reputation of the Boathouse. It did not disappoint.

awesome dining experience
Our first time with this location and it is beyond our expectation. will be back definitely.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Boathouse for me and my wife has become synonymous with celebration! It was our second time to this restaurant and we were celebrating my new job and my wife's graduation. The food was good. The crab cakes were especially delicious! I had the lobster and steak combo while my wife had the cedar plank maple salmon. While everything was pretty good, the food took a while to arrive. In addition, the mashed potatoes were slightly dry and the salmon could have used a little more maple flavour. The service was excellent. Our server was polite and we got a table very quickly. The ambience and view from the place is wonderful! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone with a cause for celebration (and a wallet to go with it!)
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best boathouse experience ever. Stephanie was out servers name who was very attentive, friendly and pleasant.
This will be our new place for our girls nights once a month.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
a relaxed evening
We had a relaxed evening (party of 3). The server gave us time before we were ready to order but we didn't have to look her when we were. The steak was good and the salmon dishes were ok. Service was excellent. We casually mentioned upon arrival that we're celebrating a birthday when we gave our instructions about the bills; and we got a piece of delicious piece of cheesecake for free. The view was nice from our table despite we were not seated by the windows..overall a good experience.

Very nice evening
Our dining experience was very enjoyable. The service could not have been any better. The variety on the menu ensured everone could find something they would enjoy. The food was prerared and served to our table in a very professional manner. And of coarse there is the view of the Fraser river where there seems to be always something happening.

Why we like this Boathouse?
The food and service are always better than the other Boathouse Restaurants. We live closer to the Boathouse in Port Moody but we find the service there rather poor. We sat outside one time and the roof leaked, the food is inconsistent (sometimes it is cold), the service there is very poor, it is noisy and that restaurant feels like I am in the middle of the giant canteen. This one is usually friendly, service is always good, food is very good to excellent. No complaints!

Staff were very friendly, called us by name, helpful with recommendations. Manager Colby Brooks was very helpful with Landry's membership. Hadn't been in quite awhile but will definitely go back soon.

Out 2nd wedding anniversary dinner
My wife lead very busy lives and plan everything! Except our anniversary day! Spent relaxing and swimming at Spanish banks we decided to try a restaurant close to our home and even though it was late in the evening the crew sat us outside upon our request even though they where closing early for the holiday Monday. They weren't stressed about us being close to closing time sat us and where excited for us and our celebration dinner. Which was amazing!! Great good great staff going there again for sure!!

We went to the Boathouse for a special birthday dinner. The food and service was excellent and the view of the river is beautiful.

WE celebrated our wedding
WE celebrated our wedding anniversary dinner there and selected the wild salmon steak which was perfect and the ambiance of our table was in a quiet space at a window; the server Karyn was superb and her friendliness and attentiveness was outstanding to make our celebration and food and service impeccable. the other surprise was a piece of cake with a sparkler for dessert to celebrate our occasion which was very much appreciated. and not expected. Thank you again; DM

We always enjoy a meal at the Boathouse. The crab cake benny keeps us coming back for brunch! The ambience, service, and view are all outstanding.

seafood was fresh and delicious. Service was great. View was picturesque

Better than expected
My son wanted to have his birthday dinner at the Boathouse. I was a little leery having read mostly poor reviews on this restaurant, i.e., sparse serving of food, over-priced, etc., however, I was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the seafood-steak platter for two and it was ample though we had salad and bread (freshly baked and served piping hot) prior to the main course. The salmon was a little overdone but other than that, we enjoyed the meal.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for girls' lunch out
What I like about this place is never feeling rushed...staff are near but do not hurry one along to order, eat, or leave. Was able to have a leisurely yummy lunch with a longtime friend and truly enjoy the riverview even though it was a bit rainy. The lunch menu has enough options to suit a variety of tastes - not just seafood. Ask for a window table!

I’ve been twice to the New West Boathouse and both times the service was prompt and really friendly, food was good, atmosphere really nice.
I have no complaints!

Excellent dining experience
It was our first time at this location and it was wonderful - we much preferred it to the Port Moody location. It was a lot quieter and the service was excellent. We will definitely go to this location again.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only negative thing that
The only negative thing that we had to say was that the serving size of the crab special ravioli was way too small.

Alaskan Crab Feast
The Boathouse provided a lovely setting to celebrate a birthday. The Alaskan King Crab was sumptuous and cooked perfectly. Tyler, our server, provided us with fine attentive service making it a delightful dining experience!

Scenic spot onthe Quay
We have a very nice meal, excellent service and a wonderful family dinner on the quay. The Miso encrusted Halibut was marvelous. A must do.

This has been our pick for our brunch get togethers. Patio overlooking the river is very pleasant during warm weather. And in winter it's nice to sit by the large windows looking out at the river. Nice spot.
Service is always good, and the crab cake Benny has become our brunch favorite!
Location is good because we all live in different areas, from Delta to Burnaby and points in between. Parking is reasonable in lower lot.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently a favourite!
Had our anniversary dinner on a Monday evening so it was not busy - a quiet evening with a table right by the windows so we could take in the river view. Enjoyed selections from the Crabfest menu - and the pumpkin cheesecake creme brulee for dessert was AH-mazing! Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive without being pushy as can happen at some other restaurants. Great evening allround!

Family birthday dinner
Dramatic improvement over our previous dining experiences here. My son choose the restaurant for his family birthday dinner because he had a great desire to have seafood and he got his wish with Triple seafoods and steak. Each of us truly enjoyed a different selection in drinks, appetizers, and entrees and came away more than satisfied.
The tables were so close together the server had no choice but to reach across the table for two of the party and it was quite a difficult reach considering the entree plates were hot - she was very apologetic about having to reach. Also, a small cheese plate offered on the menu as an alternative would be a nice addition for Diabetics which are on the increase.

ALWAYS A WINNER!
In all the years and all the visits we've had to The Boathouse in New West, we've never been disappointed. Quality and service are always excellent, sometimes even more than excellent, and yesterday was one of them. My wife and I opted for a shared warm crab appetizer followed by individual bowls of steamed mussels. The "appie" was a perfect beginning and the mussels could not have been plumper or fresher. Our server was delightful and tactful and our prior request for a specific seating location was readily met. The Concierge was warm and welcoming and genuine in her wishing us "a nice evening" upon our departure. I'm further impressed by the Landry's connection.

Service, Food, Noise
The service was very good - friendly, timely and professional - cudos to them! Given the service I was a bit disappointed with the food. The soup was luke warm and while the steak was cooked to perfection (medium rare) it was tough - not the quality of meat I expected for the price. Also, while the views from the river side table was spectacular, the noise level that night was very high to the point it was difficult to have a conversation without raising your voice. There were several large groups sitting above us being very boisterous which reduced our enjoyment of the dining experience.

dry prime rib
one of the dinners - prime rib was to be Medium and it came well done & very dry. they replace it but they were asked not to season it & they did season it.. the other 3 dinners in our party were excellent.
