when we arrived for dinner at 430 the restaurant was empty with only 1 table of a couple ladies service was ever so slow
5 people with no appies and it took us almost 2 hours to have dinner?! I don’t know if it was the server or just the kitchen staff but we were getting very irritated.

I go to thpick keg on the regular and their service is on par and never are we there that long

Otherwise food was fine

I always bring my business clients here for a dinner and find the boathouse to be a favourite, that is liked and enjoyed by all; plus it showcases our seafood as the finest!!

Tonight, one of my guests had his meal delayed, due to a mishap in the kitchen. This was embarrassing for me as a host.
(The others had more than half of their meals eaten, and an entree like Tuna took the longest). :(

I reserved table the day before and I specially asked for a ocean view side table as it was my date night. When My gf and I got there waitress gave not the ocean view side table but the construction site view table. I gently asked if I can move our table to the ocean view side. Return was “no, sorry all table were already booked.” I talked to the waitress that I also booked in advance so she when to talk to the host but still declined with no reason why. And finally by the time my gf and I finished our dinner and got the bill, a couple came to take the ocean view stop.
We were probably the youngest couple at the restaurant but I spent $125 on food. I felt like because my gf and I were young we could not get the ocean view side table because they knew elderly couple will want the table and they will order more food and give them more tip.
In my opinion, I did not get treated equally as other elderly couples at the night.

Not to mention, my gf and I were dressed semi formally and our manner was top notch if anyone is concerned. I even paid proper amount of tip as well that night.

It could be that someone reserved table before I did so it was unavailable but the way they treated our were not worth of my money and time. I never got treated disrespectfully when I went to white rock “ Boat house” or one in Richmond. All the food were amazing but service, we are not going to go out for dinner at “Boat house New West” ever again.

Birthday lunch and note in reservation. Reservation table was not ready with the dining room half empty. No one at front door to greet. Bar staff walked over to greet but left to find a hostess. Was seated and waited 10 minutes for server, water, menus. My guest ordered from brunch menu and has a food allergy which was not listed on menu or she would’ve ordered something else; when asked if the entré plate had the specific allergen fruit touched the plate the server said, “um, I don’t think so...”. When asked to check with the kitchen staff she returned and was equally unhelpful with an open ended answer; my guest opted to avoid the side fruit dish just in case. No mention of occasion, unhelpful, unfriendly, slow, inattentive server and hostesses. My absolutely final time doing business with this location. Fourth and final visit and it’s always the same disappointing dining experience.

The views are fantastic, besides random people walking in and out of the dining room floor door to the Quay.

Restaurant was short staffed according to the Manager, extremely long wait for dinner, and arrived cold and had to return to kitchen twice for 1 dinner and three times for another dinner and restaurant was full. Costly menu and did not live up to expectations. Management advised us after our dinner problems that were encountered. She should have advised us in advance as we were celebrating a milestone birthday.

the staff is friendly, but it took too long to get the food served, the food taste so so, not worth the waiting time at all! besides the crab meat is kind of smelly.

Everything was "ok" , but nothing really impressive, and while we took advantage of the Dine-Out promo, it just wasn't good enough to prompt us to return (certainly not at full price).
The bathrooms were quite dirty, hadn't been tended to all night by the looks of things.
Have been once or twice before, and hoped it would have improved, but was disappointed as it seems like nothing has changed / improved in years.

Steak was salty. Vegetable portion was small. Service was just OK
