Our dinner was excellent as usual we are local patrons and we love Arms Reach.
As always, it was great! Frittata should come with something. A small salad maybe.
Always a pleasant experience dining here - good food and surroundings.
The service and the food were very good, but the ambiance needs improvement. There's not much competition, so I see why they wouldn't invest in upgrading, but it's way past a face-lift!
We were very disappointed with our special date. Food lacked presentation, kitchen was out of the entrees we wanted and service was dreadfully slow. Pork chop was drowned in so much salt it made my wife physically ill afterward. Sorry to write a poor review, but it is the second time we have been really disappointed here.
I've never been disappointed with Arms Reach. The chefs do a great job, especially with the fancier, more pricy dishes. The options are actually quite variable though they seem simple at first glance. The restaurant is cozy and I have always had awesome service. Polite, friendly, and professional. If there is one thing I'd recommend, it would be to spend a bit more time on the more casual dishes in terms of flavor. Salads don't have to be fancy but making sure the dressing isn't too much and the ingredients are sufficient, that makes a huge difference. All in all I'll return in the future and it's a great experience, thanks.
My fiancée and I recently dined here for the first time in a few years. Great service and spectacular food. Can’t wait to go back.
It was a sunny day in deep cove and so I’m so grateful we made a reservation- we were seated right away and thoroughly enjoyed the attentive friendly service and our beautiful eggs bennies (they have the best hollandaise!) I was shocked when we got our bill to see that brunch was half price!! - it was more than worth the regular price we were expecting to pay. Will be back soon!
Loved going to Arms reach. Service friendly and welcoming. Food great and price great.
But - I will not be back because there is only a very tiny amount of parking in Deep Cove and the Deep Cove business owners association has done nothing to improve it.
I came to Gallant Avenue as a child to have ice cream in the very same building that Arms Reach is in... and I do not see anything that has been done by the community of Deep Cove to welcome visitors by adding some parking, SOMEWHERE!
Need to get the district to offer some land or something...otherwise how can the businesses survive?
EXCELLENT smoked trout bennies!! (Plus they were priced 50% off, which was even better - although they are reasonably priced at the normal price.)
We decided to eat here during the dine out festival. Food was beautiful and atmosphere perfect.
I had the Dine out menu - the salad was fabulous! The pasta though tasty for the first few bites was so heavy that I hardly got through 1/4 of it. Very disappointing. Dessert was good.
Fantastic meal great service. A real gem - don’t want to recommend it too much or we won’t get a seat next time!
What a gem of a find in my neighbourhood ! 😻😻😻😻
This calamari ( picture below) is absolutely to die for 😋😋😋! My friend and I have had many calamaris in various restaurants and this by far has reached the peak of my ratings 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😻😻😻😄😄😄
We often visit this restaurant and are always completely happy with the food and service.
The food is consistently good and we always feel very welcomed when we enter the door.
The wine is reasonable and they stock our favorite wine Blue Mountain.
We had a very bad experience at the restaurant. We booked through Open Table for Dine Out
table reservation. I had contacted the restaurant and informed them this was my wife`s birthday and could it be possible to have a window seat for the occasion and they assured me that they will place this request on their reservation to confirm it.
We arrived 15 minutes early and informed that we had arrived for our 8 o`clock reservation and the receptionist did acknowledge us and we were told to have a seat. While we were seated another waitress asked about us and she was informed we had reservations, then another couple arrived and they were asked if they had reservations and they said no and receptionist proceeded to seat them at a window table. At 5 minutes before eight o`clock another couple arrived and again they were seated before us. Finally at 8 o`clock we were informed our table will be ready in a few minutes and we had to wait another 10 minutes and we were seated at a wall table
The meals we did order were only slightly warm when they did arrive, I had order a seafood pasta and if you call seafood with all but two mussels having nothing in them and two shrimp I guess you can call it seafood
During our meal the people at the next table had several friends stop to chat with them, we had to move all glassware away from the table edge closer to these people because their rear backside were hitting the table and we did not want to have the glasses knocked over. This I know the restaurant had no control over but the ultimate was when the waitress came and and also carried a conversation with them, during this episode she seemed to have a problem with her rear end as she was scratching it in front of our face, after approximately 10 minutes the people left and she turned to us and excused herself because these people were close friends and asked if we need anything
I guess you can say we had a very interesting birthday for my wife
The food was exceptional and extremely good value for the money. The service was beyond reproach. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and a joy to deal with. We would definitely recommend.
They were very accommodating for our large group with a baby. Our server, Katie, was the perfect mix of being available when needed but allowing for good conversation. A great evening all around.
We were seated around 1:00 pm, the server came by our table at 1:05 pm and I was disappointed that the Brunch menu especially on a Sunday ends at 1:00 pm. I was really looking forward to having brunch again at this restaurant. They serve great coffee here; however, the restaurant should extend the Brunch menu to at least 2:00 pm on weekends.
A real gem in an area where choices are quite limited. Terrific food.
The waitress actually helped me prepare before my guest arrived (special guest!), by serving the dessert that I have prepared beforehand. Everything was fantastic (especially the special guest). However it is quite pricey, except the truly excellent New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. CERTAINLY well worth the price overall. I will be back and I will be back with my Special Friend (if she will have me).
Cozy restaurant with view of ocean and good food! Caesar salad was the best I’ve had, friend enjoyed steak tartare.
Went for Saturday Brunch (50% off bennies ). Server was friendly. Food was served in decent time and was delicious. Would come again for brunch.
Great location. People are all friendly and kind. Food was really good too. Carpaccio was something I would definitely order again. Egg benefits was such a big potion and it was 50% off because of their promotion for weekend lunch. We will go back again.
Amazing wine list. Enjoyed the setting and the food was fantastic too.
Food very well prepared but was disappointed that the Calamari sauce changed. New Chef, nice sauce but the other sauce is much better and goes with the Calamari very well.
We came a little earlier then what we were supposed to. And unfortunately we had to wait for a table quite long. But with overall experience after, it was worth of my waiting.
We had a server Michael, he is very polite and went above and beyond. Meals were very tasty! It was a good finish of 2017!
We greatly enjoyed our meal at Arm's Reach before heading to the Deep Cove Panto. We had family visiting from out of town and they were very impressed with everything - the food, wine, atmosphere and excellent service. Thank you, Arm's Reach for always being a source of pride for the locals.
Lovely evening. Food and service was great. Just found it a bit too cold. We had to wear our coats. We were by the window though.
This place is a gem! Housemade pasta cooked perfectly, with just the right amount of sauce. The carpaccio and Brussels sprouts were two yummy appies. And the wine - a very well-chosen list in all price ranges with an incredibly fair mark-up. Best place for wine in the Lower Mainland! In the summer, sitting outside and looking out to Deep Cove is spectacular. In the winter, the beautiful tall trees seem to fit in with the rain. We are always happy to return to the Arm's Reach. The challenge with all these great reviews - it is difficult to get a reservation!
