The Boathouse at Kits Beach
We went because of the AtlanticWe went because of the Atlantic Lobster special. We were not disappointed with the lobster but my husband was not happy with the chowder. He told the waitress (Chelsea) that it was so watery, it was tasteless. She asked if she could replace it with the lobster bisque. She did and it was great. She provided impecable service. We will definitely return.10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at this Boathouse.First time at this Boathouse. Great location. Continued good food and service. Great for that neighbourhood. Other people though have to drive to it. I suspect many people in the neighbourhood walked to the Boathouse on English Bay. We'll go back there for sure and recommend it as a group dinner location!7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery charming environment.Very charming environment. Great place to take out of town visitors. Lots of pay parking.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA table with a viewThe Restaurant Manager went out of her way to ensure we had a table by the window. It was a lovely night and it really made the evening special.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, food & serviceThe perfect Vancouver experience. Your out of town guests will not be disappointed. The menu has something for everyone, and all our choices were prepared perfectly. The wine list is concise, very well put together with great information on the varietals and food pairing. The ambiance was vibrant and a little noisy. Great view, right on the beach. Overall very good experience. Remember to ask for your parking to be validated as the parking is very expensive.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood Share PlatterHad an enjoyable time, though found everything to be a bit pricey for the amount of food served.
Best value was probably the Seafood Share Platter for $29.99 - though not huge, it was probably the best value for what you get compared to all the other individual appies and entrees - and it was arranged in a pleasing way.
Found drinks to be priced too high - $9.25 for 20oz Beer? - and it didn't really look much bigger than a pint (was expecting a pint, so would've been nice for them to tell me there were two sizes first)
Should also update their online menu pricing - specifically for kids menu which says 9.99 for all (but it's actually different priced depending on selection (but does include juice/sundae)6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDetailedThe detail is right. Superb view. The service was unobtrusive and just right, allowing us time to savour the food, scenery and atmosphere. We will be back.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful view - good foodA great place to celebrate our son's graduation from University!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeAwesome location/views, food and ambiance.

All of us had a seafood dish and the food was excellent.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time there and the view2nd time there and the view was beautiful and great service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food great viewFood was very good, tasty and hot. Service was excellent and the wine was great.
Noise level was a bit loud for me but the view made up for it. Hard to get a window seat and you can't reserve one.
Overall though it was a great dining experience. Price was on the up side but not rediculous.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMnot too shabbythis has been my personal third visit to this specific location, and i personally enjoy it because parking is easy to find and accessible and has really nice scenery focusing on the beautiful sunset with the mirror reflection of the sun bouncing off the surface of the waters, seafood was delicious and fresh and cooked to perfection, servers were friendly and polite5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe boathouseI went to the boathouse at kits with my mother on mothers day. Upon arriving at out reservation time, we were greeted by friendly staff and promptly brought to our table which was right by the window. The service was very quick and the food was great so I would certainly like to return for other special occasions in the future!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchA beautiful brunch selection and variety. My hot food was a little cold as I think the turnover was not as fast as could have been. Was really impressed with cold seafood table. Staff very friendly and warm. Setting is out of this world - what a treat for this Mother!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerGood atmosphere, good food. A little noisy. Nice touch on the shared meals: splitting the portions so that each person has a separate plate.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMserviceour waitress was great! she was attentive, noticed when my husband's coffee was low, brought my friend extra bread for her seafood hotpot. The +$10 for the three course dinner was great - except I'm not a fan of cream brulee (Asians tend to be lactose intolerant, so another dessert option would have been appreciated).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat view and foodLove the decor and the food was fresh and excellent.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy Fri night - held it togetherReserved a spot for the Boathouse late on Thursday for Saturday night at 7:30 and got a table. Had a friend in from out of town and the place was hopping as it was the first warm beach day of the year. The hostess, the waiter and the kitchen really pulled it off. We started with crab cakes and sweet chili chicken bites and both were as good as one would expect. I had the blackened halibut (excellent - perfectly cooked), my girlfriend the seafood hot pot (great variety and flavour) and my friend had the prime rib - by all accounts a winner. He really enjoyed the view (what's not to like?) and the service was very good (kudos to Ryan). Only complaint - It was a little warm from the sun blasting through the windows (it's a tough life).5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHit the local Boathouse forHit the local Boathouse for a sunset evening. Was pleasantly surprised by the extensive affordable well rounded wine list. Kudos to whoever revamped it (last time at a Boathouse was White Rock over a year ago). And the Tuna Tacos appetizer were great too. Highly recommend those.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
