I took my mom and dad for dinner to celebrate my dads birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Shane the owner was fantastic and made the night a very memorable one. The food was amazing. Can’t wait to go back and my parents now have a new favourite restaurant. :-)

I was expecting a little more quality but the food was average (crab was cold) and the rice and vegetables were a little bland. We will probably not go back. The service was pretty good and the waiter was attentive and knew his menu well. But for the price I was hoping for a meal to remember.

You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu here. The staff is so amazing and gives excellent recommendations, the owner always comes around and makes you feel welcome and the food is top notch! There’s no restaurant in Steveston that even compares

We hadn't been there for a number of years and it was a birthday dinner for my husband. Both she and our friend have some hearing issues and it was so nice to be in a restaurant where the background music was just that - background. We were able to have a nice conversation across the table. Often when the noise level is high people tend to speak quite loudly. The service was very good - didn't feel rushed but didn't feel neglected. The three of us had something different and all the meals were delicious.

45th anniversary for 2 but had a surprise couple join us
The restaurant went the XTRA MILE by putting our name and the 45th ANNIVERSARY announcement in the four menus we received . Then gave the menu to take home. And YES the food and service was FANTASTIC.

We were disappointed with our experience here. We were very excited after reading the menu and had a hard time deciding what to get. Unfortunately both our seafood linguini and the Thai seafood bowl lacked flavor and were very bland. Ambience was nice and our server was great.

Another excellent meal at the Steveston Seafood House! A must stop when in the metro Vancouver area. Quiet yet attentive service by professional waitstaff delivers top quality seafood that is well-prepared but the preparation never overshadows the intrinsic quality of the food. A full service bar and a small but excellently-curated wine list greatly enhances the food experience.

Such a fantastic meal. We were celebrating my uncle's 70th birthday and Steveston Seafood House went out of their way to make it special. Small touches like putting birthday wishes in the menu were so appreciated. The food was delicious - I would recommend Steveston Seafood House to anyone, you can't go wrong!!

SSH never disappoints. Well prepared seafood served with a smile in a warm and homey room. This visit we branched out a bit from the seafood staples and had the schnitzel, duck and warm seafood salad The schnitzel was massive: my 92 year young Mom only finished about a third of it. Delicious, but you better be hungry or have a dog at home. I had the duck, medium rare. Excellent! My wife had the salad and it, too, was a very generous sized portion. This was the entree version not the side salad. Very tasty and exceptionally good veggies considering the season. The room was full at 6:00 on a Sunday, so make reservations! Great meal in one of our favorite spots in Richmond.

Everything was great except for other inconsiderate diners playing their phone video too loudly. One even had video conferencing with full dialogue completely exposed to everyone. What happened to dining etiquettes?

Never a bad meal at the Steveston Seafood House. We have been going on and off for the last 35 years. Went as a young couple and just went on Saturday night Feb 23rd/19 celebrating our 44 anniversary. The owner goes out of her way to make our evening perfect. The last time we were at the restaurant in July my husband asked if they ever made some of their old dishes the answer was yes if you could just call in before you arrive they would try to make your request. This time we had forgotten about this but when we arrives we were told they had prepared the dish if my husband wanted this for dinner. We were both impressed that they remembered or had it marked own someplace as a reminder. If that is not service I don't know what is. Thanks again for a lovely evening at the Steveston Seafood House.

All three of us didn't like our main meal. The fish was overdone; the Boulliabause was watered down tomatoe soup with small pieces of King Crab; and the duck had not taste. Expensive meal, especially since the quality was so poor. Will not return.

One of the best meals I have had at our favourite Steveston restaurant for special occasions. The dine out menu has great choices and the portions were full size ... so much better than some places that serve smaller portions during dine out. We'll be back for sure!

We chose to return to one of our favourites. Despite the dine out menu we chose from the regular menu. We needed a night out and we know the food and wine menu are great. I had the halibut - served on spaghetti squash with a four bean medley. This was perfect, light no heavy sauce on the fish. The fish was moist and full of flavour. My partner had the schnitzel- this particular dish has been on the menu for years and never fails to please. The addition of crab & shrimp made the meal even better. Roasted potatoes in their skin with red peppers accompanied the dish. We finished with panna cotta with blackberry purée.
The service was great and the place was busy.

This was our second time, in six months, and we took advantage of the dine-out menu, which was very good value. The goat cheese salad was tasty, the steak and prawns nicely done, and the dessert, pane cotta was a hit with my wife. Service was attentive as the restaurant was full, and the owner took the time to come and say hello to us. It was a great Saturday evening.
