Hostess was lost, took 1/2 hour after reservation time to seat us. Many people waiting but empty tables. It was a 3 course set menu but 2 out of 3 of our choices for courses were unavailable. Long wait between courses even though only couple of choices available. Very poor new Year's

Set menu, nice choices but lobster bisque ran out at 1900h. Our main meal was brought to the table 2 min after our appie. When they said they would bring it back in a min, I simply stated maybe 20 min. Meal was placed under heat lamp, lobster tail was so Shriveled it was amazing they served it, when mentioned to server she stated, “ I will mention it to the chef, would you like more water?” Potatoes and veggies were cold and the garlic butter started to harden. It’s a shame because the steak was very good. Very poorly Managed restaurant, will never go back and would never recommend.

Great place to go even with kids. Food only slightly not as good as usual because it was New Year's Eve. My husband thinks his pasta dish was smaller than expected. All else was fine.

We went in with a party of 7 with 2 impatient young toddlers at 11:30 AM but after receiving the appy, did not get the entree until 1:00 PM.

At bill time, I indicated that there will be a reduction in the tips and the waiter instead of apologizing, gave a few excuses such as "my shift only started at 12:15" and "there was an office party of a few hundred people in the morning." After I indicated that none of those excuses would affect my tippin gdecision, he offered me appetizer coupons in an attempt to secure his tips. He didn't offer them before.

There were barely any other customers for the duration that we were in. The office party had left by the time we got in.

Our server wasn’t terribly attentive. She was training- we had no objection to that We were never asked how our meal was and once our plates were cleared we waited at least 45 minutes for our server to approach again to ask if we wanted our bill. We tried a few times to get her attention before that but weren’t successful. Two of us had the dinner special. It was tasty but swimming in butter. Not a very good impression. I used to like the Boathouse but I cannot recommend it now
Disappointing.

Very quiet on a weekday. Hosts were welcoming. Service was quick. Food was great. Portions were a little small for the price.

There is not a lot of variety in Richmond with respect to restaurants. We chose to go to the Boathouse prior to a concert at the River Rock Casino. The restaurant is looking a little worn. The food was ok but not up to the standards at other seafood restaurants. The salmon was dry and the presentation could have been better. Service, however, was great. We only had an hour to eat and the server brought our drinks and dinner in plenty of time for us to get to the concert on time.

Yes I would for sure. We had drinks and dinner before going to a show at the River Rock and so were able to secure a nice waterside table. It was fairly early in the evening so quiet enough to converse early, and we enjoyed very dedicated service, and what felt like a nice relaxed atmosphere. I was with my mom and her two best friends, all elderly and our server couldn't have been sweeter with them. Dinner was great too. If I lived closer I'd be back often! thanks

Excellent service. Everyone was super friendly. Food was good. Slightly expensive considering the decor needs an update... prices on par with nicer restaurants downtown Vancouver. Execution of all menu items was excellent though. Steaks cooked perfectly , salads fresh , appies good.

This is restaurant is our go to when we dine in our city. We only ask to have Steph serve us as she is amazing and always makes us feel special & home when we have dinner at this location. This Boathouse location and restaurant is gem for our city.

For a seafood restaurant, options are limited. Salmon overcooked, prawns (based on size) not local, And odd colour tails almost opaque not pink or orange. Higher prices.
