    Borrowing from a cardinal teaching of Chinese philosophy of about the holistic beauty of heaven, earth and men (women included), the Beach House Restaurant & Lounge can definitely be referred to having such miraculous quality. This is not our first visit, but every time we come we are just impressed, again and again. Bravo. Bravo.

    We go to the Beach House about 1x per year for special occasions, this one being my wife's b.day. It's expensive so it is definitely a treat at $300 for 4 adults (minimal drinks) 2 kids I expected a lot better food. 2 orders of the seafood 'pot' (forgot the name) - was absolutely tasteless. Salmon had no flavor, all of the 4 mussels had no taste my wife would not finish it. Sable fish and noodle - recommended by the server was only OK,really not much taste and seemed over cooked, not what you expect for a $30 entree! No point in mentioning the rest of the food it was all OK, definitely not worth the price. Truth be told I would have complained to the server or manager but trying to get her attention was very difficult.

    The food is average - pretty much the same as what you would get at parent restaurant Earls. The prices are outrageous and are not matched by quality or service. I ordered a Stella draft (rather than $14 + glass of wine). They served it in a basic pint glass - I guess they do not have glasses to match to beer brands. I wish I had a picnic at the beach instead.

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    My last 2 visits to the Beach House were disappointing . The sable fish on one occasion was very salty, almost inedible, and on the next visit I had the house salad with halibut . The halibut was overcooked and hence dry , the salad greens were steps away from being wilted. Our party arrived separately and our hostess seated us separately. It was some time before the error was discovered. Not impressed

    WORST DINNER WE'VE HAD IN YEARS. I'VE BEEN GOING TO THIS RESTAURANT SINCE IT OPENED. AMBIENCE - SO NOISY, COULD NOT HAVE A DISCUSSION WITH MY TWO FRIENDS. UNBELIEVABLE AWFUL. FOOD WAS TERRIBLE FOR 2 OUT OF US 3. SERVER APOLOGETIC, BUT OF COURSE THAT DOES NOT IMPROVE DINNER. YOUR MENU HAS SOOO CHANGED TO MEDIUM OF THE ROAD. IT WILL BE A LONG TIME BEFORE I CONSIDER EVEN GOING BACK FOR A LUNCH.

    Food serving time was super late. We waited over 40min. It was so loud so we needed to shout when we talked to each other. Also I left my message that the dinner was for my husband and his twin brother's 50th birthday when I made the resavation on website but no one said "Happy birthday". I've never had the service like this - I've always had response of some kind at other restaurants if I taught them it's birthday dinner even booked on website. Very disappointed but the server was good. Thank you for that.

    The restaurant is located on the beach in West Vancouver with beautiful views to Stanley Park & the Ocean. The food is very nice. Appetizer was delicious! Tuna Cones. My daughters Roasted Chicken was delicious so was my Sable Fish! Service was excellent! We sat outside in the patio. Definitely a great restaurant to dine!

    Being a vegetarian there wasn't much option. I got the Beachhouse Salad which wasn't anything special except for the pecans. I also got the spicy carrot soup to start which wasn't very good. My husband got the 7oz steak with truffle fries. He said the fries were great but the steak was average. The steaks we buy from Meridian Meats are way better. I haven't tried all the food so I can't give a review on all the food just what we had but the location is what we came for. It was beautiful!

    The restaurant does have a wonderful view but we were placed at far corner where it was a bit dark and with no view, especially for the person who sat with her back to the windows. The restaurant is a bit pub-like and dark. It needs brightening up - in my opinion. The food was very good and the service excellent

    This one was first recommended by a friend and she and I had a great meal, but I'm reviewing the return trip on holiday with my guy. The view was still spectacular. The setting is ridiculously gorgeous, on the pier at Dundarave Village, with lush gardens or beaches in all directions. We started with gyoza, which had an odd aioli that I would have rather they omitted if I'd known it was coming. I had a very nice piece of chicken with an excellent flavourful skin on some mashed potato, with seasonal veg - nice comfort food. He had salmon with watermelon radish, peas, baby carrots. This dish stood out especially for the excellent wild neon colour combinations that showed some real thought in the presentation, and it also tasted good.

    We had halibut fish and chips. $23 each. Yikes! We had a nice view once we asked to be moved otherwise I would have been staring at a wall. Hostess did not want to move us. It was a real hassle for her. Maybe she had her braces tightened that day. Our waitress was pleasant enough though. Food was delicious. Truffle fries was a nice treat. Drinks - well made and high quality. View - to die for. I would definitely go there at least once. Patio is not available for reservation so you will have to wait if you want to sit outside in the fishbowl. The patio is completely glassed in which is a nice wind barrier. There was a wait for the patio even there were empty tables so I am not sure what the reason behind that was. Overall it was a good meal.

    I was here about 6 months ago, and found the same things, medium quality, small portioned and overpriced food. It's like you're paying for the gondola ride at Grouse mountain to eat at the Observatory, but without the gondola ride (or the view)! They need to improve the quality of their food and their menu. There's plenty of other restaurants in Vancouver that want my custom, and they're going to get it. But not here, you've had your chance.

    I found the restaurant ambience and service significantly changed from the fine dining experience which I had appreciated here on previous occasions. There was electronic house dance music being pumped from the bar, emanating through the restaurant throughout the hour-and-a-half we were there. It is one of the reasons we didn't stay and have dessert. It was too damn noisy. It was hard to hear my dinner partner. The service was very amateurish - spilling wine on the table, not picking up dirty plates. It was like being in a Keg. I take it The Beach House is no longer positioning itself as fine dining. I am unlikely to go there for dinner again. Certainly not when I'm looking for a special meal. It's a shame. It used to be lovely.

    I always forget about the Beach House and I wish I went more because the food is great. I had the steak frites and the steak was excellent. Very tender and had great flavour. I didn't expect many decent options for the non fish eater but the steak really surprised me. The restaurant had a beautiful view and an interesting mix of people. The only negative thing I'd say would be to cut out the 29 hostesses that stand at the front door and do nothing because it can be unsettling to try to check in with them all staring at you and looking bored.
