I liked Dosalas a lot for its food and quick service. The ambiance was beautiful, but I was concerned that not one person (including staff) wore a mask inside. It was quite strange, especially given the amount of people that were in the space. Luckily my party sat outside and we felt comfortable with that. Their food is outstanding and the service is friendly and totally on-point!

Ordered the paella for 2 at $55. Only thing that was hot was the rice. Lobster and clams were cold.

Went today to celebrate our 37th anniversary with another couple.No one asked if we were there for anything.. When we arrived we were 8 minutes early for our 11am reservation and was told we could not be seated until 11 so we waited outside. We were taken to a beautiful table overlooking the water. That’s where our experience went from enjoying how beautiful the restaurant is to giving this a one star review. All four of us ordered and our friends asked for an extra item to come before our brunch items. After 20 minutes out came one meal. We encouraged our friend to eat it so it would not get cold. Ten minutes later two more came out and we asked where is the last meal along with the dish our friends asked to start off with. The waitress said oh I forgot to tell you we cook one dish at a time and left. Another 10 minutes went by and my husband got his French toast along with the other dish.
The rest of us had finished already. She did come back and took off his French toast (it was more like bread pudding) which was nice from the bill. The food was wonderful however don’t plan on getting real full if you just order one brunch entree per person. Walking out we noticed there is a lovely outdoor patio it would have been nice to be asked if we would like indoor or outdoor. I felt no friendly vibes from the staff which is a shame as looking around they tend to pay more attention to the younger guests . As beautiful this restaurant is and the food being very tasty I am not sure I will go back as the value of the meal and the unfriendly staff just made our visit just ok.

The staff was incredibly helpful, kind and knowledgeable.

The good was amazing and I’m currently recommending Dosalas to everyone. Also, posting on my Instagram and Facebook.

One huge factor besides the fabulous drinks (Diamonds are forever) and food, was the paring of sauces with each dish. Blew us away!!

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and service. I was disappointed in the grilled seasonal vegetables because they were so oily and the ceviche was not up to par with the ceviche I grew up with in Latin America. It was a tad bitter.
The coco channel margarita was delicious! Nice drink choices and food choices. I would definitely go back.

In exploring new restaurants we chose to try out this one. Upon walking in I was struck by a large wall of fake plants, which would be amazing if they were real. The hosts were delightful and seated us promptly to our preferred outdoor dining space. While there was plenty of seating along the outside edge they sat us at a small table by the building. The decor I can only liken to something you would expect from seeing on the Jersey shore was a mix of reptile pleather, white on black and very garish. The restaurant feels completely out of place in Vancouver. It comes across as pretentious. I did like the full length fire table outside.
The QR code menu took some figuring out as no one told us if we were to use the brunch or mid day menu. None the less we figured it out. Our waiter was polite and told us that the meals come out “family style” which meant that our 2 person table order may not arrive at the same time. Our drinks came out okay. They were good, not great but presented well. For $16 alcoholic beverage none could be tasted.
My daughter got her entree and was finished before mine arrived. She got something I can’t remember the name of but reminded me of a Latin style nachos. It had a smooth mild Adobe flavor that was just right. When she was done my food finally came. So she just sat there and watched me eat. I got the crab toast. The portion sizes were fair and the food was decently flavored. It could have come with a salad/garnish.
My compliments come in from the compensation from the manager without asking was generous and took a substantial amount off our bill for how long it took to get our full order done.
I think as a new restaurant, Dosalas has a lot of potential to hone their menu items and improve their patrons dining experience. It’s management clearly wants to make their customers happy which I think is the my main compliment.
Aside from the decor I just don’t like, I mean to each their own… there is a lot of potential here.

5 year wedding anniversary

I was absolutely blown away with the service that Kevin provided my wife and I. We only let him know it was our first time there and not that it was our wedding anniversary. But the treatment we received was 10/10! Kevin not only was able to let us know about what Dos Alas was as a restaurant but how it came and the different style of it not being a traditional 3 course meal. We started off with beverages and the vintage fashion coming out in a smoked glass case was insane. We tried the Brazilian cheese bread and the short rib empanadas and the only complaint I have with that is that I wish there was more haha. It was so good! For dinner we decided to order the Ancho-Spiced Lamb chops, Pressed Cuban, Mexican street corn and BBQ Carrots. So with that we had to try desserts! We ordered the recommended Caramelized Basqued Cheesecake and the Mexican hot chocolate cake! Both were phenomenal! I want to say we ate absolutely everything based on flavor but boxes of leftovers to make sure we were able to walk out of there haha. Once again I would like to thank Kevin for the experience he provided from the drink to the dessert recommendations. We will be back and we will be requesting Kevin again. Mahalo 🤙🏽

Such gorgeous décor, I was a little bummed because I made a reservation and they escorted us to our table, but then the hostess said they accidentally sat someone there, and then moved us to a table that didn't really have a view and was crowded. It was still pretty though. The service was amazing, almost too good! We got our order in right away thinking it would take forever to come since it was busy, but it came faster than we could eat it! I know to take time ordering next time. Also, the food was a little heavy on the sauces, but otherwise fantastic. A really wonderful spot for a special occasion or date.

Such an amazing experience! Between the handcrafted margaritas, savory baked provolone small plate, scrumptious paella for two, and the moist, delicious cheesecake, we made a happy memory! The service was over-the-top and ambience hip and Latino. We highly recommend for anyone who desires a wonderful time to remember!

The food was delicious!! Drinks were....ok. The service was fantastic! The ambiance/view was perfect!!! The only drawback was the noise level. It is a little hard to hear the people you are sitting with. There was a lot of "huh??" and "what'd you say??". But overall, I love this place. Will definitely be back.

What a beautiful place on the waterfront! We celebrated a friend’s birthday and had the best meal and experience. Their food is all cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. Their salmon is a must have! Staff is attentive and accommodating to special dietary needs. Definitely my new favorite place to go and celebrate our special birthdays.

Made a reservation but was placed in a very hot outside deck location with the sun beating on us. It made for an uncomfortable meal. The shades blocked part of the sun, but not enough to keep it cool. The food was good and the drinks were good as well. I will try again to see if my experience can improve to great with a better seating location.

Ambiance is very nice. Very well done. Service at hostess stand upon entry is not polite, friendly, or inviting. Wait staff knowledgeable and professional. Food & drinks are just OK. Presentation is excellent. Cost is very high for the quality. Much much higher than surrounding restaurants. So, if you’re coming for the view, another restaurant on the waterfront may be a better choice.

Most of the food was very reasonably priced and quite good! The service was very good. The location was great and it felt very “upscale “. Drinks were tasty but VERY overpriced. We will return but limit the drinks!
