The genuine hospitality of the staff makes dining at your restaurant an exceptional experience.
Disappointing experience. Poor service. Foid fair to average. Would not return.
Excellent afternoon on the warm sunny deck at the canoe
The peel and eat prawns were so tasty and fresh. The wine list is extensive and very representative of our excellent B.C. wine industry. Fast efficient service as always! Our server Jake manages to entertain with his jokes and stories but still provide professional service always a treat to have lunch at the blue canoe!
Only thing notable was sitting along window was quite windy and cold but the heaters worked well
As always a great place to eat,nice view great staff.
Lots of vegetarian options! Everything was awesome!
We had the Saltspring mussels. Very good. The poutine was not good. I expected "hand cut fries" but they were frozen.
The only time I have visited Blue Canoe was during Dine Out Vancouver. My expectations were high as I've heard many good things about the restaurant. However, the food was rather disappointing during Dine Out. A couple of us ordered the paella, which was quite dry. We also ordered the apple pie for desert, which again was very disappointing. The best part of the meal for all three of us was the appetizer (pork belly for myself, chowder for my friends).
Food mediocre at best
The location is amazing. The service was great. Our dine-out food was horrible. Dry and cold (we asked for a reheat, which mildly helped), overall it seemed that our entrees as a part of a $40 meal were pre-made and dry. As in dry rice and dry salmon. I can imagine that there was some care in the construction of these dishes, but that care was not passed on to us directly as the diner. I will probably go back for the location, but unfortunately not for the food.
Enjoyed the Dine Out menu.
Overall was good. Keep it up
Choices looked good on menu. Of the apperizers, 3 or 4 of us had the seafood chowder, adequate but not stellar: the veggy tower was a hit though. The paella was a bit dry and the seafood a littke overcooked unlike the short ribs. The apple tart was a flat serving of pastry with the thinnest slices of apple on a small plate with a scoop of ice cream. The service, ambiance and setting were great. Wish the food had lived up to those standards!
Great location, but a disappointing dining experience. There were issues with both my and my wife's meals. Some good choices on their wine list though. I think we'll try someplace else next time we have dinner in the area.
Had an awesome meal with great service. Our waiter was amazing. Made you feel like royalty. Would go back many times. Drove 1.5 hours to get there. Worth the drive. 2 thumbs up.
Got the $40 menu, though it says includes tip and gratitude on the paper menu itself; it does not (Almost looked like the jerk who didn't tip). Ordered the smoked pork belly appetizer, I say I wish I had more of the piece at the bottom. Super tasty! The paella was a massive portion! It was good, tasty, but not outstanding. The rib tastes bland until you add some cranberry sauce and then it transforms the dish. Not enough cranberry sauce to rib ratio. As for dessert I would of picked the chai creme brulee if I had known the apple tart came out so flaccid. Its not flaky, not buttery; but one sheet of pie crust with sliced apples laid on top with some ice cream, two pieces of strawberries and whipped cream as garnish. The creme brulee was creamy, had a nice crunch as one would except from a creme brulee. Smooth, creamy, not too sweet. The servers were consistently providing the best service, provided us with lemon water (my friend was a little sick). It was calm and relaxing. I am not sure I can indulge in this restaurant again with the price and the unpredictability of the food. But overall I don't regret trying this place during the dine out festival.
Went there with my bf and his friend for Dine-out in this restaurant the first time. We arrived there by time and someone came to serve us and gave us a table. After, a server gave us a menus and offered us some recommendations which was great. After we took our order, the wait was quite short and fast. The dish was great yet the portion was small. Overall was good
We ordered the dine out menu, but when we order a Paella the server told me was out of them. Is pretty disappoint of this restaurant because the main reason to come try paella.
Tried the dine out 2018, service is good but the food isn't worth the money -$40 dine out.
We booked last minute and were able to get in no problem even though it was dine out Vancouver. Our server was great - very attentive and friendly but not over the top. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere/ location was fantastic. Can’t wait to try the patio in the summer
