My daughter had salmon on a bun that was fairly dry so she didn’t enjoy it as much as we enjoyed our lobster and seafood platter. It was incredible!

Priced high for what you get. Mussels were really good and the only high light. Should offer a lunch menu.

Great setting. Excellent service from initial greeting all the way through the evening.
We meet a client and had a perfect experience for a casual business dinner.

I’ve always enjoyed the shrimp taco salad but this time there were only 5 shrimps in it. In all previous orders, there were 6. Felt a little let down.

We took our friends from New Zealand there for dinner. It was a lovely evening, the food and the service was awesome. We sat on the outside deck and enjoyed a beautiful evening. I would highly recommend the Blue Canoe.

I wish they could have offered everything fresh but the coleslaw wasn't as the crab.
The other items were superb! Great selection of beers to pair with seafood and cozy ambience with blankets available outside for a chilly day.

We enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere, especially being down close to the water and the views. I was surprised that there weren't more people in the restaurant considering it was a Saturday night during the summer. I would have expected more people.

the patio tables overlooking the marina are a must if you have guests from out of town. Location is everything and food is good too

We were able to get a table on the patio overlooking the sunset. Service was great. We shared two starters and the kitchen was so kind to adjust size of shared starters for 6 people. Entrees were wonderful in texture and flavour. The ahi tuna was slightly overdone, but still good. And because we were celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday with friends, the server brought out a large piece of birthday cake for us to share. She also recommended an excellent Pinot Grigio and helped with taking pictures of the occasion. Will definitely recommend this to others and come back for special occasions. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Regretfully disappointing. Fish and chips and tuna salad were ffine...club sandwich bread was stale and chicken on dry side with little taste. Nothing impressive.

We had a wonderful evening at The Blue Canoe...the view is beautiful with all the fishing boats, the sunshine and blue sky. Our server was good, the food was very tasty. and the ambiance very nice, with such a gorgeous backdrop. Thank you.

We ate on the patio on a beautiful summer day. Staff were great at putting up and down umbrellas as we got hot/cold or needed a break from the sun. Service and food were excellent.

Beautiful setting, fabulous food and excellent service. The only improvement could be more vegetarian options on the menu.
Would go back for sure!

The views are lovely and the restaurant has an inviting ambience. Service is good and my only gripe is that there are very limited vegetarian options. I know it's a seafood restaurant and in such establishments, I usually order side dishes. There were no side dishes on the menu and the vegetarian selection was limited to 2 items.

If it weren’t for the stunning view & atmosphere. This restaurant would not survive. The food & service are both below average.

Great spot to take a break ... like a mini vacation so close to Vancouver downtown!

I invited a friend/client for lunch on a sunny lunch time in July.

We shared the fish tacos, and they were really good. We also had the mushroom crustini (hold the balsamic reduction) and they were fantastic!

The crab dip was ok, the roasted tomato soup was very good.

The service and the atmosphere on the patio was awesome! I had the fish tacos and they were quite bland. My family all had fish and chips and they were delish!
