Arms Reach Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We went for brunch on a rainy Sunday morning. The brunch options are limited but reasonably priced and nicely presented. The venue is small and intimate with a nice view of the water (we had a window seat) and the service was good, wait staff friendly and competent. All in all a pleasurable experience.
Food was excellent like always. The Mussels were spicier then usual. I still really enjoyed them but they were a bit much for my wife. We have had them here numerous times and I wouldn't generally say they were too spicy for Caucasian Canadians. I had the Kale Salad. It was excellent. Our kids had the baked spaghetti. It's always hard to know whether to get the half order or full order for our kids as they are growing.
Always a favourite: good food at a reasonable price; never poor service; grade A location; excellent wine selection. Sorry to see that a couple of favourite items are no longer on the menu - understand the need to change the menu from time to time but disappointing of course if the items are a personal favourite. Don't ever remove the beef carpaccio though, that'll end our relationship!!
We were disappointed in the menu - it had very few lunch options compared to previous visits there. The service was good but we were not impressed with the food. The parking is a nightmare in Deep Cove on a busy weekend. We will choose another restaurant when we go out with friends next time.
Visited Arms Reach for brunch after a hike nearby. I had the kale and goat cheese frittata, and it was exceptional for something so simple. Very high-quality ingredients. My friend had the hash bowl, and it was reportedly great. Friendly service, lovely view of Deep Cove and our food was quick to come out. We'll be back!
Excellent location in the heart of Deep Cove, excellent wines and spirits selection. Appetizer and main were excellent.
Personally, I think that main courses are a bit overpriced.
I strongly suggest going there after 8.30 pm, the acoustic is not a strong suit, and if rooms are full it can be noisy. After 9/9.30 is much better, fewer people and you can actually enjoy the view on Deep Cove Marina.
Overall, very good experience.
We come to Arms Reach for all of my Mother's special occasions. Have been for at least 10 years now and have had a fantastic experience each and every time. The atmosphere, food and service is always superb. I recommend this restaurant all the time! Keep it up!
Server was very smelly and dirty. It was a bit offensive honestly but the rest of the staff and management didn’t seem to say anything about her apron and clothing or the pungent smell. Her greasy hair and touching her hands to her mouth so many times as she was grabbing forks and plates disturbed me as well. By the time I was waiting for my food we were already regretting going. The food was... ok. Ate and left. I’ve been here other times and it’s more like a 3 star if you have a clean and good smelling server. This visit in particular was painful.
We have had lunch there before and that was delicious. Dinner was amazing. Our vegan son and lactose intolerant daughter found items on the menu for them. Their first time there and they will go back and same for my husband and I. Server was lovely, not intrusive but attentive.
Seated at window table with great view and ambience. Dana was wonderful, friendly, outgoing and conversational, passionate about her food and interested in us as individuals and how we were enjoying our visit to Vancouver.
The menu was varied, food excellent and reasonably priced. If not local, then Deep Cove and Arms reach Bistro are well worth a special detour visit. Thank you for your welcome and hospitality.
