Tasty food and agreeable staff. Enjoyable experience
We enjoyed a lovely lunch at Boathouse English Bay with friends in mid February on a weekday. The restaurant was practically empty at that time. The food and service were excellent. The view is spectacular.
2 tables by the window were open and we asked if we could be moved. But our request was denied. They were open for a very long time probably just before we got our main meals. We didn’t like the place we were sitting. As there was everyone moving around our table. I don’t understand why they couldn’t move us. Food was good but then not being able to fulfill my request to move tables that were open half of the time I was there didn’t make sense to me. My girlfriend and I return there every year for Valentine’s Day, not sure if we will be returning the next year or during any occasion for that matter. Oh and the prime rib that I ordered, was one very fat piece of meat. I barely got any actual meat there. That’s where I was also very disappointed
Good food, great selection of wines and good value for your bucks
Really enjoyed our meal, relaxed setting, and lovely view.
Doughy dish&chips, boiled like finish on $45 tenderloin & not exactly a looked after experience.
The food was great. This resturant is expensive and could be not! It has a beatifull view to the ocean.
Overally, my wife, son and I had a great night!
Overall it was good. Only downside was one of our steaks was cooked "blue" when we ordered both medium rare. Restaurant was also out of creme brulee dessert which we were looking forward to.
Overall our experience was pretty good, food, atmosphere etc.. We started off at the bar for happy hour while waiting for our reservation. The service was spectacular, food and drinks were great.
When we went upstairs for dinner our server suggested the $40 dine out menu, when he came back to take our order and we ordered from the $30 menu he looked genuinely disappointed. After that point we felt very rushed by our server it was obvious we didn't spend enough money so he wanted the turn over.. he even went ahead and brought us our bill and asked if we needed the machine while I was still eating without asking if we'd like anything else. This was extremely disappointing as we were planning to have a few after dinner drinks there but felt pretty unwelcome after that, so we chose to go somewhere else.
we went on a dine out night and were very pleasantly surprised. The service and food were excellent. My ahi and my partner's halibut were especially good, fresh and perfectly cooked. The table for two rather cramped and with the low ceilings we had to raise our voices for any conversation, but overall, we were happy to have come
I got the $40 three course meal for Dine Out Vancouver. My first course was crab whiskey soup, and it came out cold. Lukewarm in the middle but cold on the outside. Had to send it back. My second course I got the steak and added prawns for another $10. The steak was good, but my prawns were undercooked and almost mushy. I was highly unimpressed for a meal I paid basically $50+ for. I won’t be returning :(
Great birthday dinner. Really great seafood!
Very nice location, close to the beach and Stanley Park. Very nice view. The price is reasonable. Food is average.
We had a fantastic dinning experience with boathouse. Excellent food especially the lobster tail, so awesome that it almost melt in your mouth.
We will definitely be back and will recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.
We tried the dine out Vancouver Menu. The Appies and the Desserts were ok. When it got to the main course the food was not presentable. The Lobster and crab ravioli was swimming in the sauce. We had to dig through all the sauce to find the ravioli. We also ordered the Salmon stuffed with crabs. Salmon was overcooked. The side veggies which were i think supposed to be grilled were raw. I eat out a lot and I know good food. Unfortunately that night I was there...i didn't see good food.
Overpriced for a meal that had no flavour. We used to really enjoy the Boathouse, but it seems the quality of food has dropped while the prices have continued to go up. Service was great though, even though we had a large group and needed to add extra seats at the last minute.
The Pacific cod was great. I would recommend the creme brulee.
Great location with a nice view of water and mountains. Food is nice enough and service was great. It gets busy on fine days but was pretty empty for Wednesday lunch on a rainy day.
Came for Happy Hour in the lounge on a cold, rainy day. The fire was roaring, which gave great comfort to our cold bones. Craig was a phenomenal server; made us feel at home, gave us super personalized service, & made us feel special!!!! Was a fantastic experience & I would recommend Boathouse English Bay to anyone - especially if Craig is involved!!!!
Service was good, food was ok. Expected to be served bread before dinner like most other Boathouse restaurants and others, but we were not given the opportunity. Was not one of our memorable anniversary dinners - that was our 52nd!
