    Usually Aplus plus, but yesterday was an off night. Oysters had shells and there was very little service…had to borrow hot sauce from neighboring table as wait staff just didnt check in. Not going to go for a while.

    Such amazing fresh oysters and seafood, the tuna tartar was off the charts delicious and the grilled octopus had excellent heat in the romesco sauce. Service was always prompt and knowledgeable-I ordered a dozen oysters 6 my choice and 6 theirs and was delightfully surprised. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try a unique seafood experience. The room was busy, hip, happening, bustling on a Friday night so if you like quiet places this may not be for you but I loved it!

    We got the Cajun feast, shishito peppers, a dozen oysters, & pork belly and scallops. Shared between 4 people, it was a decent meal. Would’ve liked some rice but that’s just cause my family’s Asian lmao. Staff was really nice & attentive despite how busy it was. Definitely would come back for the Cajun feast 👌🏽

    I ordered the fish tacos. It has a kick to it. The fish was fresh. Overall, it tastes excellent. The caviar is good that came with complement of preserved vegetables. I love the freshness of the fanny Bay oysters. The service was outstanding. However, the prices are quite high.

    While others recommended the sablefish collars, I didn’t really care for them. Perhaps I was shorted on the sauce? Because a few bites that had some of the sauce on seemed to be better. Since I only had a few days in Vancouver I wouldn’t put this on the top of my list for experiences.

    Our group of four enjoyed a nice dinner at Fanny Bay Saturday night. My wife and I shared the Cajun seafood feast. It was ok, but not great. The broth tasted like the bay leaf had been left in too long or they used a bushel of them. Overpowered and clashed with the Cajun spices. Our friends both had the halibut special and were very pleased with that. There are only two dessert choices, Pavlov and a pina colada panna cotta. Both were delicious. The room is casual, cheerful and a bit noisy. Our server was great. I'd give it another try if I was in the area becuase I like the concept; fresh seafood and oysters served simply.

    We travel for business and work coast to coast and eat in lots of great restaurants. Possibly some of the best group customer service we have received from a restaurant. Smiles all around, friendly, helpful. From the general manager all the way to a new girls first night the staff took CARE of us. Oh and the food slayed on top of it all. Recommended and we will return every time we are in town.

    Had been there as a walk-in with my 17 month old granddaughter on the Friday previous as they do not take reservations before 6:30 so we took a chance at 5 pm and it was terrific. Got lucky with a table for 4 plus a high chair and the service was great, the food excellent and the manager was superb in making sure our visit went well. There for the Rugby 7’s and back again with my teammate on Saturday so will definitely be back when we return.

    Party of 4, we liked it. Staff was nice and able to make recommendations/answer questions. Food was good, altho some portions were very small. All was fresh and wine was good. Fresh Oysters are very good! They care when theres an outbreak of Norovirus and change the supplier or area altogether, which we appreciated. The ventilation is not the best and it smells like fish and boiled clams as you come in but the nose accommodates soon. Lighting could be better too. All in all a good experience and will come back for sure!

    Seafood was yummy. We had the oysters, clams, crab cakes and fish and chips. It would have been nice to have a few more vegetable dishes like side salads. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We couldn't have the mussels due to some safety reasons and he explained they would substitute it with extra clams. Front door hostess was very friendly too.
