It’s my birthday next week so my parents decided to take me out for dinner. This place was one of a few on my list that I wanted to try out. As you walk in you are welcomed in by this warm home like feeling. We were seated by the window overlooking the marina. We caught a slight glimpse of the sunset but it quickly dipped below the horizon. I ordered the 8oz prime rib done medium- rare. When we got the food the presentation was very well thought out and looked very delicious. It came with steamed veggies, mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. The prime rib was very tender and full of flavour. The vegetables and mashed potatoes were very tasty. Overall I was very pleased by the service and food here. I will definitely come back again!

Great restaurant. Friendly service. Mussels are highly recommended. Prime Rib is a must have. Not many places make Yorkshire pudding so that was great treat.

No changing table on premise so be prepared when bringing your little one.

Food was very good with great options for gluten free etc. Only complaint was my daughter asked for no cheese and it arrived with cheese. So while I ate the kitchen had to make hers over again. Server was very friendly and attentive. Wine selection is good as well.

I had the prime rib which was great but I am not particularly a meat person so I am not a good test of how great it was. The horse radish was nice! The salad and veggies where nice. The desert was OK but not wonderful. Wine was good. Service was good.

A perfect evening with friends - good food, friendly service and an outstanding view of the water! We sat out on the patio over looking the river and were served promptly and not rushed when we sat to talk over our tea and coffee. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try them☹️

We were visiting the area to bird watch at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuart. I had the peach lemonade mocktail with seafood Club sandwich. My husband had the house white and pan fried oysters. We shared the cheesecake with strawberries. Everything was excellently prepared. Beautiful view of the water.

Silly, but I made a reservation for 6:00 and had that confirmed. However, when we arrived at 6, the waitress said she had us down for 5:30 and she had just called our home to see if we were coming. Well, I assured her we are here. So some sort of glitch with the computer program.

Food was excellent, nice evening beautiful sunset. The pub has been nicely renovated but we ate in the wine room I was a little chilly in that room but they had heaters placed around the room. They were a little understaffed, but we were looked after nicely and had a wonderful evening

We had to wait 2 hours for our meals. My husband had to go and find the server to bring us a
second cup of coffee and all the servers were all in the River House Pub as there were more
customers in there. No we were all very annoyed. A couple came in 45 min. after we did and
they got their meals right away.

While the pub is under renovation the restaurant has the bar moved in which changes it a bit. Looking forward to trying this restaurant again after the pub is back Feb 2018 and they’ve moved out of the restaurant.

Was totally disappointed it was a New Years date, first date and it was like eating in a cafeteria setting. I think I would have preferred to eat at White spot. Their Kale salad had greens a couple of small scoops of garbonzo beans, no comparison to anywhere else. My dates portion was child size and he is a big man. Totally disappointed!

Took a colleague here for a Christmas lunch. We were seated next to a very large noisy group so it was difficult to have a conversation. It took nearly an hour for our food to arrive but when we finally got it, it was delicious. Our server was very friendly and we understood how very busy she was. I would definitely come back again, but will choose a quieter time of year

Service was slow to start, after that acceptable. Servers are friendly which adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Food was average, and for that a touch too expensive. The good thing is that it is not noisy, so one can have a conversation while eating or afterwards. The setting is good, parking plentiful and so you get away from the huzzle and buzzle of downtown or more centrally located restaurants.
