Local food prepared well, with many interesting choices and many gluten-free options. Great location for views and unique ambience. Caring, responsive servers. I've recommended this restaurant to friends since I discovered it.

Enjoyed the experience and had a great get together with relatives. Nice river setting and the restaurant has a nice ambiance; the food was excellent. Too bad the place is so hard to find first time and ditto re the return back to Richmond.

Love going to Pier 73 in the Pacific Gateway Hotel in Richmond. I go with my girlfriends, I go with my husband, and we go with couples. Everytime we go, the food has been outstanding. They have just completed one of the biggest outdoor patios that I’ve ever seen, could possibly be the biggest one in Vancouver! Lookout Summer of 2018! The food is fantastic and quality is superb. The chef is amazing. The staff is always friendly and have been there forever. Love the gluten free calimari. It is a more casual dining atmosphere with a water view and fabulous tasting food.

We chose Pier 73 because of its location near the airport (we were meeting a friend from Toronto who had a flight early the next morning). It has a pretty good menu, although somewhat over-priced for the quality of the higher end dishes. It is a very large room and is probably best in the summer when you can enjoy the patio and the water views. Service was good, if a bit quirky. Good selection of craft beers and a reasonable wine list.

our 2 guests and family members both enjoyed the ambience and were surprised as had never been there before. The chicken sandwich was very so so but the rest was good especially the app and the dessert.

The food was good but service was slow. It was busy and the atmosphere was good. Not easy to find by Vancouver airport.

Olivia our server was excellent. Attentive to our table. Once the reno on the marina deck is complete we will be back again. Menu selection for appetizers was a bit dull. Nachos so so.. need the option of more than one layer and more toppings.

Overall food was good. Kids menu does not have fries as a side option! They only have lentil soup or vegetables! We asked the waitress for another minute to decide what to order and she didn't come back for 10 minutes. We never saw her again after that.

Understaffed so we languished quite awhile before seeing a server. Food so-so and uninspired.

Smiling & helpful service; great options in children's menu; very tasty food; great timing for delivering our food and the bill - didn't ask or wait for anything.

Would definitely go back with our family; will suggest going there with friends and other family too!

I ordered the seafood pasta...It ended up being fishy...Which leads me to think the seafood was frozen not fresh.

I dine at Pier 73 whenever I stay at the Pacific Gateway Hotel. The restaurant is welcoming and the food is very good. The menu makes the most of west coast seafood, meat, and produce; dishes are prepared well and presented beautifully; and the service is excellent. Our server, Yvonne, always remembers me even though I may only go to the restaurant a couple of times a year and offers excellent suggestions for food and wine.

It would be nice if more choices were offered in the DineOut menu, only two choices available for appetizer and for entree and none for dessert.
