We chose the 3 course special. The salad was crisp and lovely. The fish with risotto was perfect. The dessert offering was creme brulee or donuts. We had one of each. The creme brulee was good, BUT the donuts were fabulous!!!. I never eat donuts, but I gotta tell ya, these are to die for. They are tender inside, crisp on the outside, and covered in a delectable sugary coating. Get up and go right now, get these donuts. GO!
This restaurant is on the repeat list. The food was fresh and there was lots of great selection. The location is amazing and we could walk there from our hotel. The staff were super friendly and we never had to wait for great service.
Met friends from Vanc and we talked and talked and talked and they let us alone. Didn't rush us or make us feel we needed to leave. We were there for over 4 hours!!!! Food was tasty, service very good. Overall, for what we wanted it totally fit the bill. Not too noisy either. Have eaten on the deck before and it was lovely.
View is great and food was good. Service was excellent.
One of our favourites
Service was great, the food mediocre, at best.
Gabby our Server, and Phil, whom we assumed was the Manager, were both terrific. Attentive without being overbearing. Other members of the staff were equally welcoming. Have purchased several Gift Cards for family and friends at Christmas time and we're just now getting out to use them. We really enjoy the $1.50 per shucked oysters between 2:00 and 5:00 on the patio.
Love the patio!
Great view of the harborside and very relaxed atmosphere.
It would have been better if we weren’t staring at the messy area where the chefs and servers were eating. The waitress ignored us for about 10 minutes and then couldn’t get us out fast enough. The food was good but the drinks were not.
Food was excellent. It was a pleasant surprise considering the Romer’s restaurants I have visited in Vancouver. This restaurant is nothing like them. The seating area was cramped while a section on the other side of the room was almost empty. The server was excellent.
We had a wonderful time all around. Only problem was that I had requested (thru my Opentable reservation) a candle on my wife's dessert to celebrate her birthday but there was none.
We found the service was slow and took quite awhile for our meal to arrive at our table considering it wasn't very busy.
The setting is lovely and, although we didn't sit outside, I know the patio is lovely with a great view of the inner harbour.
Very good food and very good service. A good choice for a couple or a smaller group.
The place was dead. The wait staff didn’t seem to care about us at all. But the oysters were alright.
Another great meal at a great spot, we even managed to sit outside early in the season thanks to the blankets and heaters.... add some friends from out of province (who are still deep in winter) it’s a win win all round....Yay for spring!!! We’ll be back!!
Great food and view. The clam chowder is good
Just okay...much better food options elsewhere. If it was warm enough to dine outside, it would have been better simply because of the view.
Started with a frosty welcoming who didn’t say a word coupled with poor food and a very strange layout.
Overall good experience, although it was a little pricey for what we got. $80 for two meals, non-alcoholic drinks and one desert.
Has an enjoyable lunch. Restaurant was not very full due to construction on the street. Service was excellent.
Very pleasant, attentive young waiter. Food was really good. We are a bit older, and the music was a bit loud for me, when I was talking to my friend. Not really bad, but a little distracting. I have been to this restaurant for dinner before - in the evening, and we sat outside. It. was wonderful, and that's what made me try it again, for lunch this time.
I was very comfortable, because I am fairly tall. My friend is quite short, and she found it difficult to be comfortable, and reach the table. The seats are quite far from the table, which makes it difficult for small people. It was my friend's birthday, and I indicated that at the time I made the reservation. I thought it might be recognized, but it wasn't. Overall, it was a lovely lunch. I'm only giving you my opinion because you asked for it. I had no complaints really, and I will be back. Thank you.

I was in town for work, I went in on a Sunday night, and it was quiet so I cannot talk about the atmosphere but would imagine it's a nice place to meet with friends. I came in, was promptly seated at a nice table by the window, the menu was interesting , the food was tasty and the server was efficient. So yes, I would come back, hopefully when it's more busy.
We had great food and great service and those are the things we appreciate, in that order. We would definitely go there again.
My crab cake and shrimp dinner were excellent; my table mates all had steak and they raved about how good it was. We splurged on the chocolate torte for dessert and it didn't disappoint! Our server was knowledgeable about the area and did a great job.
Great views, excellent service and delicious food, thank you!
Valentines day date.Price for their special was good . Food was so,so. Asked for a window seat--nope,even though there were some available even after we were seated for 15 minutes or so.Made me wonder about that.
Though it is in my nature to comment on the quality of food if it is not "good",since it was a date I kept quiet. Won't next time if there is a next time
The decor and service were very pleasant. Food was delicious. Ther view is perfect any time of year.
Terrible service! Forever to get first coffee and never asked for a refill . Food took 45 mins- no one ever checked in with us or acknowledged a delay. When food finally arrived it was dropped off and we were never checked in again! And this was during an almost empty restaurant day! Food was warm only. Bill was brought with no question of how was everything; just zero personality. Clearly no interest in having us there then, nor to return.
Came for dine around and the food was amazing. I had the chicken mushroom pasta and it was so light and tasty. Usually pastas are heavy but this was an olive oil/white wine sauce and I really enjoyed it and appriecated the cream free pasta dish! Food came at a timely manor and the dessert was huge! Too much for one person.
we had a fantastic evening ! The food was great service was great ! We will go back
We had the dine around menu and it was good value and very tasty. On looking at the regular menu it seemed very pricey for what was offered.
The dine-around-Victoria menu was delicious and such good value.
The only problem was the wine!
We had to go down to our fourth choice as they were having problems with distributers or had run out....
This was our first visit to Steamship Grill. It was a cold, wet mid week evening. We wanted to dine at 7 pm but they claimed to be full so we had to go at 7:30. To our surprise the restaurant was almost empty. They sat us at a table with a boarded up window even though we had reserved ahead. The appetizers were fine. Then the server asked us to re-use our dirty cutlery because they 'were short of clean cutlery' !!! Entrees were fine. Steak was not very tender however. Dessert was excellent though mine was a bit burnt on the bottom (galette).
Wine prices seemed very expensive...300% mark up by the glass. Although we stayed less than 90 minutes, they were clearly waiting for us to leave.
All in all, we will not return.
I had been to the Steamship Grill for lunch but not dinner, so the Dine Around menu was a good opportunity to try it out. The menu selections were very good and the portions full size - we certainly did not leave hungry. After first being seated on the hallway side of the restaurant, which we found cool and too exposed, we asked to be moved next to the fireplace. It was cozier but there was some distraction from the kitchen - perhaps a screen on the half wall? The chairs are very big and heavy, very cumbersome to get seated and unseated. The service was excellent. Have already recommended Steamship Grill to friends.
Dine around menu!! Crab soup amazing!! Steak and seafood really good!!
We had only one minor complaint which I should have addressed while at the restaurant but it was very busy and we were having good time. The coconut shrimp we ordered was way over cooked. Maybe we could be compensated on our next visit?

guaranteed always super in every way...service, food, delivery, price..everything..love it
The Dine Around Victoria menu was amazing for $30. The crab bisque & crème brule were excellent possibly the best ever. The trout and sirloin with crab & shrimp were also very good.
Staff were great.
We dined with friends and had at the $30 Dine Around the Town menu. The choices were varied and the food was delicious. We had a nice booth at the window. Parking in the neighbourhood can be an issue but we found a spot about a block away.
Dine around menu was great, lots of selection. The Bailey's creme brulee was amazing!
Our dinner was fabulous. The food was terrific, served in a timely manner and portions were generous. Bravo.
