Lobster roll and kale ceasar salad were so good! Oysters were refreshing. Also enjoyed the fish tacos. The smelt and rockfish croquettes were just okay.
Bf had the boozy coffee and it was quite strong (I should've stolen his drink). I had the Amelia and a whiskey sour, enjoyed both drinks. Service was great. Would come back again!

Overall food and the service from waitress was good. however, we waited longer than usual for the food to come out. Because we were just enjoying our time there we didnt mind. But it would fall under slow service.

Not a bad seafood spot near the beach. Would recommend Papi's for oysters and wine by the sea.

Great place for oysters, seafood, cocktails and fun. Nice menu with very fair prices. Good wine and a lovely cocktail and beer list. Service was friendly and cheerful. The server quickly checked if everything was okay when our food arrived and stopped by to check again later, he also made recommendations at the start. Super location to eat and then take a walk along the seawall toward Stanley Park.

The service staff were attentive without being intrusive. We were there for Dine Out and the menu selection was delicious and a good value for the calibre of restaurant. We would give the ambience an outstanding, and this is NOT the fault of the restaurant, due to C-19 restrictions the place is empty. We were there at night and the view is spectacular during the day so the place lacked a certain intricacy. We look forward to returning again for brunch and other evening meals as the days get longer and enjoy the sunset.

Enjoyed immensely-wonderful outdoor atmosphere with heated patio with open view of English Bay. Service was supremely good- waiter offered to bring another appetizer when I commented that the one I had was just OK (Dine Out Vancouver special). She knew about the various oyster characteristics very well. Linguini was creamy and tasty. I'd recommend going, highly.

Wonderful food and service and I felt quite safe how they set up their floor for in-person diners. They also had a wonderful selection for Dine Out. Highly recommend, especially for a nice dinner at night with a decent view of the bay.

Overall, a decent restaurant in a prime location. Service was good, though it took some time for my party to be seated despite having a reservation. The food was disappointing overall. The oysters were the only bright point. The pasta was overcooked. The beef short rib was dry. The lemon creme brule had almost no lemon flavour in it.

Starter of mussels was lovely, but we waited a long time for it to arrive and then the second we were finished the mains arrived so I think there might have been mishap in the kitchen. The desert on the dine out menu and on the specials board was not available which was disappointing. I wouldn't of had the dine out menu if I had known before ordering.

Excellent "Dine Out Vancouver 2021" experience. 3 course meal for $35/person. I had the mussels a 1st course, braised beef ribs with polenta for the second, and pann e cotta with raspberry sauce for desert. All courses were sublime! Wonderful service, great Covid precautions, wonderful food. We will return, no question..

Our first time eating dinner at Papi's, and it was a lovely evening. The staff are super friendly and attentive, very helpful to explain the drink and food choices. The meals were as described and very flavourful. The ambiance is very nice, even with COVID restrictions in place. We will go back!

We had a lovely time. Physical distancing in place, felt safe and inviting, service was good. My only tweak is around the mussels. You have a choice of a chorizo red sauce or white wine sauce...my favorite part is dunking my bread into this usually delicious liquid. It wasn't. It was watery and the mussels were cold. Disappointing. The halibut fish and chips were great though.

It was a last minute reservation on a busy Friday. The weather was great, the view was even better. The restaurant was busy and even when I clearly requested a patio table, the manager, Dan was able to look after our needs in a very professional and friendly way when no patio table was available when we arrived. The food was good but the service and 'human factor' will make me return.

Our server was delightful, and efficient. We had both dinner and lunch there during our Vancouver staycation. The mussels were delish, lobster roll (ask for the larger one), noodle salad, and salmon burger also delicious. We also loved the location. Would highly recommend!

We had 5 friends for a Birthday Party. Food was great, happy hour menu. I had the Entree, which was disappointing, as was the Gin based Chocolate Martini. Seating was excellant! We had a great time, but missed Birthday sparkelers!
