A wonderful date night experience with a visit from the sommelier and tasting natural wine. Both the beef carpaccio and Brussels+delicata squash appetizers were amazing!
Great food,friendly service.Very enjoyable experience
No where else I’d rather dine in Vancouver when I’m visiting!
Fantastic dinner, excellent service. We celebrated an anniversary there and they treated us very well!
We went for dine out Vancouver and it was fantastic. Food and service were wonderful.
Delightful little restaurant! The food was delicious, our server was lovely, and it's just a cute cozy little spot. When our server found out we were celebrating our anniversary she brought us each a glass of prosecco as a little surprise at the end of our meal, such a thoughtful touch. Looking forward to going back in the warmer months to enjoy the patio!
Such a great restaurant. We go there often because we have never been disappointed. Highly recommend the mussels, golden beet salad and the Argentinian Prawns.
Date with my husband.
After we got home we got home and I paid for all I was told by my wife two,guests had ordered the dine out Vancouver but we were charged for these as regular menu items.
Hi Kilgore, I'm sorry for any confusion. We charge for each dine out course separately on your bill. First course is $10, main course is $15 and dessert is $10 totalling $35 for 3 courses. Those items should start with "DOV" on your bill. We don't normally carry those items, so they don't have a set regular price. If there is an error on your bill, please call or email us and I would be happy to solve any issues and make sure you aren't overcharged.
Family dinner to celebrate a wedding
Had scallops and risotto- was delicious. Best meal I’ve had in awhile! The service was professional and friendly.
This is my favourite restaurant in all of Vancouver, without question. We go there often for dinner, lunch and brunch. All special occasions are celebrated there! The food is amazing, the atmosphere is charming and cozy and the staff are experienced and attentive. Do yourself a favour and make a trip to lovely Deep Cove to experience this restaurant- you wasn’t regret it!
Another excellent meal at Arms Reach Bistro! Excellent service and food. Great neighbourhood restaurant.
It was clean. Service was pleasant. The view was nice
Parking was an issue
A favorite for years!
Perfectly situated with a lovely view of the Deep Cove Yacht Club and municipal pier this is THE place to eat out in Deep Cove. The staff is friendly and helpful and the is food pretty good, if a little over-priced. Great value on Wednesdays (for the pasta special and a beer) and Thursdays (for a burger and a beer) when you can eat for $15 to $17 per person.
Another great meal - Arms Reach never disappoints !!
It was our wedding anniversary. We have celebrated here many times before. Food was great as usual. I would say we were seated at the worst table in the place beside the fact the place was not full and we had specifically said it was our anniversary at the time of our reservation. That was disappointing but we could have said something. We will be back, just felt they did not take the time to look at our reservation.
Hi Tania, Thank you for your comments. Our apologies that we didn't meet your seating requests for your special night. We try our best to accommodate everyone especially on anniversaries and birthdays. It's not always possible on busy nights like Fridays to meet all the requests. But, we don't mind trying to find you something different if you don't like your table and we have others available. I hope that you still enjoyed dinner with us and I'm happy to hear we will be seeing you again.
They were excellent about accommodating our granddaughter’s severe dairy allergy.
Our meal and service were wonderful
Food and service is always exceptional. One of our favourite spots on the north shore. They even have a kids menu which is very reasonably priced. Highly recommend.
We live in the Cove & go often - I had my niece her husband & their 15 month old baby as well as my 2 friends from Vancouver with their 2 year old & my husband & I. We could not have had a better time, table well set up with 2 high chairs & crayons etc for the little ones. Our food & drinks were all excellent & my family & friends were quite impressed - we love the place & are thankful they are doorsteps away from us.
Food was delicious as always and service, provided by Erica, friendly and efficient.
Music, as is so often the case, was "energetic" as well as wrong choice for this dining experience. Pity that no-one appears to pay attention to this.
Also, 3 or 4 service staff tended to gather around the Bar/area to chat with one another – did not think this to be too professional, especially since one could hear whatever was being said!
Hi Esca, Thank you for your comments. We noticed you've left a few negative reviews regarding our music. We try to carefully pick playlists for a casual dining setting. But, realize it's not everyone's tastes. I assure you we are paying attention and have made a note in your reservation profile to seat you away from speakers and turn the music way down whenever you visit us. Please feel free to let us know in person if you have any further issues with volume and we would be happy to accommodate.
A better wine selection by the glass would have been the perfect touch.
This place is awesome but when it gets busy, it gets loud. That food is amazing and that ambiance is wonderful. That staff is very good and the views are one of a kind. Overall, very worthwhile and we have been back over and over again.
I had the squash soup (it was warm but not hot yet still yummy) and a Caesar salad. My husband had the chicken curry. All were delicious! I had the rosemarina (tequila and grapefruit juice) which tasted like an upscale margarita with a sprig of fresh rosemary. Great service. We got in on a Friday night for 7pm on Open table with only 20 mins notice! So happy. It’s hard to get in to this wonderful restaurant.
Always a favourite, it’s a treat to come here anytime
Food was very, very good, service was good. However, considering the restaurant’s reputation, location, quality, and price point I would generally expect the service staff to be dressed appropriate to a dining experience rather than your local brew pub. I am not suggesting anything revealing, merely nice blouses or dress shirts vs wife beaters or T-shirts.
the waiter was outstanding! very attentive and polite
Consistent food quality, outside patio option, attendant service and great location
Boys Christmas lunch
We always enjoy the food, ambiance and the great staff.
Wonderful Duck special. Excellent service
The service in the atmosphere was unbelievable and the food was beyond five stars! The Coconut muscles was the best I’ve ever had in 20 years.
One of our favorite restaurant in Vancouver. We will keep coming back! Keep the good work.
Cozy Deep Cove institution. Nice menu. Friendly staff. Not too busy early in the lunch hour.
Loved the relaxed Family atmopshpere.
Mussels and fries starter was delicious.
I had the scallops and risotto, which was fabulous!
Will come again fro the next Birthday!
Had a delicious dinner out with a neighbor for the holidays.
Always guaranteed a fabulous meal.
One of our favourites, all year around.
I usually head straight to the Spicy Spaghetti, but I branched out to the Cubano and it was wonderful.
And the espresso cream dessert... amazing!
Great location service was ok. But the food was just a bit too pricey.
