    Everything was delicious! Paella, geoduck, oysters, sablefish and lobster poutine was so good. Our friends visiting from California will definitely be returning. Gotta try this place if you love seafood.

    We arrived early, and got a seat at the bar no problem. We shared the muscles and clam and a pasta seafood dish. Both very good. We were drinking happy hour $6 beers. Service was efficient.

    Always a dinner stop for us when we visit Vancouver. The Oyster selection is impressive, the staff is knowledgeable and the speciality cocktails never disappoint. We ordered 2 shuckers dozen, the grilled octopus and the Seacuterie, which was a delight.

    Went with some friends and we all tried a bit of everything. Oysters were good, drinks were good-scallops and pork belly was overdone, mussels were bland, truffle fries were mostly crumbs. The tagliatelle was good but the clams were really tough. Overall the group was let down. Probably won’t be back.

    We went for the first time and dine out menu. Service was great and food was delicious. I would say the salmon was a bit dry but 8/10 for food! We had multiple serves as we stayed late but all were lovely.

    We came for Dine out Vancouver, having never been to this restaurant before. There was a long wait for our entree which the chef came out and apologized for, and brought us complimentary champage. Not a big deal, it happens. Everything we had (Crab Louie Salad, Arctic Char, Scallops & Pork Belly, Creme Brulee, Pana Cotta) was ok or good, but not great and could have been better. There is certainly better seafood to be found at this pricepoint in Vancouver (we prefer FishWorks). The wine in particular was quite overpriced, although it is downtown so maybe not atypical for the location. The highlight of the meal was the oysters (add on to Dine out Menu) - but I'm not sure we would come back just for them. My partner also became sick shortly after eating here, which is obviously always a a risk of consuming raw seafood - but doesn't make us want to go back.

    Food was fantastic and the price point was good. So overall a win!. Loved that they had good lemonade for us non drinkers. Tables are very close together and its loud (or energetic as the open table review options allow) The only thing below par was the washrooms, which are freezing cold and not well maintained.

    Came here to try dine out on a birthday. Food tasted great with good size portions. Drinks were good. Service was really impressive and food/drinks were ready quickly. We had our two young children with us and our server made them feel special and even gave them chocolates at the end of the meal. Definitely recommend coming here.

    Excellent in every category. It was a bit chilly every time the door opened and the seats were quite hard. Small items compared to everything else. It was our first time for all four of us but definitely not our last! Superb! It is a good restaurant for couples as well as groups for any occasion including regular dining out Cheers Ross

    Lobster bisque was probably the best lobster bisque I’ve ever had. Huge chunks of lobster in it and amazing taste! The oysters were as fresh as could be. Had the sablefish and melted in my mouth as ur should. Definitely recommend going to Fanny bay oyster bar will probably go back for a second dine out Vancouver just for the oysters and the lobster bisque!

    We were lucky to get a spot at the bar (which I read in previous reviews is a cool place to observe how the food is being prepared), and since we were first time trying oysters, Tylor was so nice to suggest three different types of oysters, how to eat them, what type of drinks goes well. We also tried octopus, fish, chips, and sea urchins. Overall, we had so much fun and highly suggest anyone looking for a nice restaurant and a new seafood experience!
