If you haven't been to Pier
If you haven't been to Pier 7 yet....GO! You will not be disappointed. The food and sevice is fantastic and the view isn't bad either. Vibrant atmosphere, yet relaxing. Good for all occasions.

We had a group of 4 and everyone
We had a group of 4 and everyone loved the food, service, ambiance and views. This was my 4th visit to Pier 7 and by far the best experience. The 'growing pains' that were evident previously seem to be gone.
The spring rolls and short ribs were amazing! Ceasar salad was one of the best I've had.
I would recommend this restaurant and we'll definitely go back again.

Food was excellent and views
Food was excellent and views very good although the service was pretty poor which we were told, was due to the 'kitchen being overwhelmed'.

A couple loud tables around
A couple loud tables around us, but once I saw the extensive wine list I understood why. That's why I'd recommend this as a group place and not romantic. Try a weeknight if you're going on a date.
They have a good variety of food; fancier stuff for me and old-fashioned fish n' chips for my lug of a brother. I particularly liked that they had a whole section on their menu entitled 'Not Fish', lol. There's always someone who doesn't like seafood.

Our experience at Pier 7 was excellent, what a great new find for the North Shore! Can't wait until the deck is open , what a great spot to have a bite and watch the sun set over the city !!! We will return !!!

We noticed this beautifully
We noticed this beautifully constructed building on a stroll through the Lower Lonsdale area just after we moved our business here a few months back. It was crowded that Sunday and seems to be every time we drive or walk by. Now we know why.
We took our staff there for a firm lunch and were all immediately blown away by both the incredible views of Downtown Vancouver and the excellent service accorded us by both hostess and server. The food is a very upscale version of the standard fare with some fairly eclectic menu items like fresh oysters and a seared Ahi Tuna Nicoise salad. The Wagyu Beef burger was tremendous. Good selection of wines and beers. Prices were moderate. It will be a regular stop for us. A dinner rez is next on our "menu
4/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great nachos with seafood!
We wanted a half bottle or carafe of wine and we were limited to wine by the glass or full bottle. This would be a nice touch since we were driving. I requested for a window seat but didn't get one.

Pier 7- worth the trip
If you hesitate about getting there from downtown- don't. Take the Seabus and walk 100 paces to your right. Not a chain, not a cookie-cutter personality, Pier 7 has created a special dining experience. Order what grabs you first- fish & chips for brunch? Why not? Crab salad? A mitt full of delicious real crab (not krab with a "K") perched on a bed of gentle Boston Bibb- as it should be. Different take on omelets: cheesy egg wrapped goodness with fillings-well- on top. Desserts- thought fully constructed and plated: sticky toffee pudding contrasts salty, sweet, cold and hot. Love it! Service gets ***** and once that upstairs patio is open, summer fun will abound. Catch a bite Friday night and watch the market unfold in the adjacent square.

Awesome location!!!...interior and bar area was very cool...deck looked temporary...it was the first night of their new menu so not sure we were saw them at their best...some of the food that arrived looked like it had been held in the warmer for a bit...slight skin on the sauce; meat that looked warmed up...however overall was a good experience...well priced and would go back again.
5/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great place on the shore!
Lunched here with my daughter recently and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Great views of the harbour to accompany the meal. Will definetely be back !
5/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great tasting food, we had
Great tasting food, we had tasty spring rolls to start, amazingly cooked lamb and salmon for mains and superb crumble to finish. Good service, no complaints. Lovely waterfront spot and on a nice night a walk on the pier would top it off.
Only two comments, the ceiling is hideous, they have nice chic interior walls and windows and then I looked up to see some tacky under the water scene on the ceiling, not sure what was going on there. Also it was a bit cold in there. The air con vents blew straight onto my husband.
Otherwise super good, will definitely go again.
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great way to celebrate!
We had a delicious meal at Pier 7 and our waiter's humour, patience, and helfulness made my sister's 45th birthday extra special. The portions, though somewhat small for the price, were flavourful. We shared the delicious crab cakes, the beet spinach salad, and the spicy chicken wings. I had the halibut as my main dish and thoroughly enjoyed the blend of coconut milk, asparagus, leeks, as well as other ingredients, in the sauce. We'll be back for sure!
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food with a fantastic view!
Overall we were impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff. It was our anniversary and we were seated at a romantic spot in the corner overlookiing the ocean. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed our meals. The calamari was amazing. Thanks for making it a memorable evening.

We loved this place from the moment we walked through the door. Exceptional friendly service, the food is cooked to perfection with beautiful presentation. We had such a great time. "try the oysters" . The entire experience is FIVE STAR.

Gem on lower Lonsdale
Recently discovered Pier 7 when it was suggested for as a place for dinner on the Northshore after we attended DREAMGIRLS. We were unaware that it had been opened for close to a year. We enjoyed spectacular views of the harbour and the city while enjoying a lovely dinner. Good portions of very nicely presented and prepared food.
I will have been to Pier 7 twice more times since our first visit. This week for great lunch with a girlfriend and this coming Sunday we will experience brunch with a group.

Beautiful evening at vibrant
Beautiful evening at vibrant and close neighborhood location. I love the view from this restaurant, so nice to have at least one waterfront restaurant in the hood. Our server Thomas was a delight and made the experience super and uncrushed, there should be more like him.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We came as a group of friends who have been buddies since 1963, this time to gather before a memorial service of the family member of one of us. We had fun at lunch and together supported our buddy on her difficult day. The staff were efficient and fun, joining in with us to make our day easier! Everyone enjoyed the food served and though the view is terrific we were more focused on ourselves as old friends. Thank you for creating an ambiance that was fun for our group!
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Their website did not mention
Their website did not mention that their lunch menu was not served on the weekends. Brunch menu was good but was disappointed that my father and I could not order from the lunch menu.
6/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and Great server
Had a wonderful evening with another couple. Halibut, steak, lamb all was perfect! Even server who was a vegetarian was able to answer our questions. She was a delight. Will come back!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
First of all, the view is extraordinary!!!
Our waitress, Nicole, was fun and very helpful in assisting us to choose our food and wine.
The food was excellent - from the green salad to the scallops and the steak.
Our cousin recommended this restaurant to us, and we like to pass on the recommendation to you all.
This is one restaurant that I can honestly say that we will be coming back to, which in my mind is the best recommendation of all.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't be hungry and in a hurry
Excellent food but small portions in relation to the price, except their delicious burgers. Excellent location with great view but noisy environment. The service was friendly but a bit sluggish.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great combination of food, drink, and scenery. Service was excellent with our Australian waitress.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was excellent. Drinks
Food was excellent. Drinks and appetizers came promptly. Entree and dessert took considerably longer, to the point where we wondering if they were coming. Piped in music also leaves a bit to be desired.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice decor, and great food.
Overall great restaurant. Our server Susan provided excellent service. The views are fantastic. My wife had the halibut and felt it was the most delicious meal she had in quite some time. Same goes for my salmon. Not a great variety on the menu but it appears they worry more about the quality which, after all is what we want. The lemon cheesecake was very unusual and tasty, but the chocolate parfait was incredible. I would highly recommend it.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing view and good food!
Amazing view and good food! My friend and I had a wonderful time.

Don't miss this gem!
Definitely a neighborhood gem, great food, awesome view of the downtown skyline from pretty much every table. Great outdoor patio.
You can park at the lonsdale market for free and walk to the restaurant.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful and knowledgeable
Wonderful and knowledgeable server who dealt with our every need in a timely way. Great tasting food and beautifully presented. We loved the working waterfront. We sat inside on a sunny evening and found the music that was playing was loud and not conducive to dining. The server agreed and asked the manager to turn down the music. That was much better as before we couldn't each other across the table. That kind of a situation makes the restaurant become noisier with everyone speaking up to be heard over the music.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner with a view
Great food, wine and fantastic view of the harbour and down town
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit too pricey for what it is. Wine expensive too. Perhaps this is why the restaurant was only half full on a lovely summer night. Having said that, the food was good, service excellent, view spectacular . I'd go back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Over all we had a lovely night
Over all we had a lovely night & our food was hot fresh & cooked well! the sunny evening was AWESOME to sit patio on the water.
nice to have a new waterfront place to eat on the N. Shore

Can't beat the location
This restaurant is perfectly located close to the water. The service was great, the food was good.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had an early Friday night
Had an early Friday night dinner. Things were a little slow to start as I think our server had just started her shift. Service got much better once she got into the groove. The food was excellent. My dining partner said her salmon was some of the best she's ever had, and she knows her salmon. A sunny view over Vancouver harbour made the overall experience hard to beat.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
True Vancouver venue
Pier 7 was a great experience. The scenic view is outstanding, the ambience excellent. and the tapas very tasty. I would definitely recommend this for lunch (which I did) and suspect the dinner would be great as well.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gem of the North Shore
Took my friend there for her birthday lunch. We enjoyed a great lunch on the patio against the backdrop of a spectacular view of tge city! Third time here since discovering this place this summer.

Reserve the Patio
Advise people upon booking that the patio cannot be reserved, and that upstairs only open F-S-S. I requested table 95 Staff need to be aware of that.
My friend reserved a table for 2 for a special occasion 2 weeks prior to their evening. They were sat inside behind other diners who had not booked, and where there were better tables taken by people who also just dropped in. Staff should also monitor the special occasion requests which the Open Table reservation form asks for. The air inside the restaurant definitely is cloudy with the smells of cooking from the kitchen - more ventilation!
Food good: lamb roast amazing, scallops on cauliflower risotto fantastic but the braised pork on lentils was dry.
The view is amazing.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I like it.
The service was friendly and our server was really nice, but rather inattentive. It wasn't that busy so I would expect with the customer to staff ratio service would be better. Mix ups when drinks and food were served, traffic direction required, "no, over there, over here please", incomplete place settings. Our server left our bottle of wine on an empty table next to ours and we had to fetch it ourselves, thankfully it was a screw top. The food was excellent from appetizers to entrees and all nicely plated. I will go back and hopefully the server will be more focused. Nothing under $40 on the wine list, not a deciding factor for me, just saying.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pier 7 was our first choice to meet on the North Shore. We 3 had a great experience right from the friendly hostess and attentative server.
We ordered the night special buccatini with clams and the regular buccatini chicken with chorizo. Both were exceptionally good dishes....perfectly al dente !!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Huge improvement since opening
We sat on the patio and had amazing views across town. My friend had the halibut and I had the scallops both were excellent and service good. We decided to take a friend there for her birthday. We were not disappointed. I had mentioned it was a guests birthday when I made the booking through OpenTable. We were taken to a window table (which I had requested) and my friend was wished a happy birthday. We were a party of four and ordered the halibut, scallops (served with an amazing cauliflower risotto), salmon and beef dishes. All were excellent. We shared a creme brûlée cheesecake served with delicious fruit for dessert which was served with a sparkler, nice touch. Would recommend Pier 7 without hesitation!

Great view of downtown Vancouver
Great view of downtown Vancouver from the north shore!

Decided against a turkey dinner for Thanksgiving. Opted for a brunch at Pier 7.
Fantastic, friendly staff. Great food, and spectacular view. Pier 7 is one of our favorite places.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would go back
I was not impressed with my salad but I would definitely go back to try something else on the menu, it looked like there were some fantastic options. The patio was amazing and the service was great.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made special arrangements for a birthday celebration and everything was outstanding. Food was fantastic, service exceptional, weather not so warm but can't blame the restaurant for that. We sat outside on the patio and had enough artificial heat to make it very comfortable. Enjoyed the new lunch menu very much.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been here a couple times. It's been good each time. Not too expensive and good service and food options. I've only eaten in the bar, but the rest of the restaurant looks nice.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pier7 - great spot!
Great ambience, and location with a to-die-for view. My husband and I went for our anniversary on a Saturday night. We had the calamari to start, with NY Steak and the West Coast Bouillabaisse for mains, both were delicious. Servers were attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back!
