A Great Restaurant & Staff - so sorry to hear that it is closing.
This wAs a special night because the historic horseshoe bay location is now closed. Very sad. Great food and the waitress was amazing.
This was the last day of this location, very sad that it was closing. with friends living in Nanaimo and I living in West Vancouver, it was the perfect place to meet, close to the ferry and home. The food was great, better than at all the other places in Horseshoe Bay, the view was unparalleled. So now where are we going? even with m y husband we came here on our own, and with guests, it was our favourite place. Driving to the other locations, all far away or across the busy bridge ... not worth the drive.
The manager came to talk to us, the waiters were fantastic, I only hope that it will reopen soon.
The end of an era in Horseshoe Bay! Maybe it will be resurrected down the road - sure hope so!!
Closing for good tomorrow and in wind down mode. Not all menu items available, wine shelves empty (though wine available for purchase). Very good service but depressing that this great restaurant is closing. So many great meals and memories!
One thing that was very annoying was that I made a very early reservation and there were lots of window seats available when we arrived but they seated us away from the window. When I asked if we could be moved to a window side table, the response was "no, those are for our special customers." I said, "even though I reserved a table and we are not here during a busy time?" To which the rather snarky response was "no, you are not part of our special elite club..." Actually, they have no idea if I am part of that club or not, since they never asked!
Was very insulted and irritated by this response.
So, beware, Open Table guests--you are NOT special!
Horseshoe Bay location is our favourite, waterfront and the cozy fireplace. We went there also because it's closing for good next week. Kind of wanted to go for one last time.
My coconut pacific cod tasted consistent but size of fish is way smaller than when I was there a month ago. My daughter enjoyed her crab cakes a lot, so did my son who ordered the cod and chips until he saw a tangled worm on his last bite. We didn't want to complain as it was literally the last bite and thought it's no point since they are closing in a week.
I ordered a ginger cider and came missing all the trimmings, apparently the bar tender didn't know it came with fresh ginger, bitters and lemon juice. I did ask about the rest of the ingredients and was returned with lemon juice and bitters but not sure about the fresh ginger. My son's pacific Caesar is very water down and wasn't sure if he got a virgin Caesar instead. My children felt it wasn't worth sending that second drink back so I didn't.
Overall a little disappointed for lunch for three that costs $113, but I still left 15% tip because the server was great.
Great so sorry to see it close .I was one of the workers who built this place . Food top of line service the same .
Typical Boathouse dinner. Waiter was helpful (a bit overly at times). I would like to have the option of changing my meal a bit if I want. But it seems to be quite the ordeal to do that. The steak was not great. It's not a good cut of steak and I found it kind of tasteless. The stuffed lobster tail was awesome and I would have like to have had a 2nd one without a steak, but it was too complicated.
Our family love this beautiful restaurant & are so very upset that they are closing for good on Nov 30th!!! There is no other location as beautiful & because of high end complexes that are going to be built, & the West Vancouver Council voted for it! Feel so bad for the great staff there, and all the people who will not be able to enjoy such a lovely, unique, experience!
My fiance and I had a wonderful dinner. We heard that the Horseshoe Bay location was set to close at the end of November 2016 so we decided to check it out. We are so glad that we did. The staff were friendly and inviting. We were extremely lucky to be served by the very lovely STEPHANIE!! She was nothing short of the perfect waitress!!
We had a reservation for 6 pm and arrived about 7 minutes early. The hostesses were quick to remind us that happy hour was still available and we were seated quickly to have the opportunity to take advantage of the great appy/drink deals! We did not feel rushed to make a decision despite coming close to the 6 pm cut-off-time.
We had 2 appies, drinks, entrees, 2 desserts and coffee. Everything came out quickly and fresh. The food was delicious and the service was top notch! it's a shame that this location is closing down. The view is spectacular...even in the evening!
Nice views on a bright day. It was lovely to sit by the window and look out. I wondered whether the music was for the patrons (mostly seniors) or the staff. I am sure those dining would not have chosen the Pop music. That music would be better for a bar scene.
Enjoyed our lunch anyway.
Excellent in every way
It is a tragedy it is closing
There is a new huge condo being built next to this outstanding restaurant, so this is the last month it will be operating, if you want to have an excellent dinner, friendly service in an outstanding location this month is sadly your last chance.
A more attentive server would have made the dinner service complete. I.E. Replenish water, coffee, tea... Proper cutlery for meal service etc.
