The service was excellent. The food was satisfactory. The prices were exorbitantly high for a out of the way lonely village. They were charging downtown prices here. Quite surprising for a location that was very remote. I will not recommend this place, I’m sorry.

Steveston Seafood House is our favourite restaurant in Steveston Village. We have been going there for years and always, without exception, have a great meal. The wine list is very good with various choices without being overwhelming. Service is always attentive we are able to have a very relaxed meal. A favourite appetizer is the Beef Carpacio - hint, we save the pre-dinner bread to finish off this tasty appy; the portions are generous.

We then had Steak and Prawns (yes, in a seafood house...) and everything was so well prepared and tasty. The menu has something for most tasy=tes.

We are regulars here. When we reserve they go out of their way to ensure we have everything specific to our needs. Their detail to accommodate for covid and social distancing was excellent. Because of the limited number of table we found the noice level much lower than normal making for quiet conversation very pleasant. Service is top notch and food simply excellent.

We`ve been to the Steveston Seafood House twice now for anniversary dinners, and both times perfect. Not pretentious, but you can feel the quality. A shout out for the wine list - we found interesting new choices, and wine by the glass was sensibly priced. I`m sure we`ll be back for our anniversary next year.

We can highly recommend this restaurant - always consistent, with high quality food, quiet environment and excellent service. The only complaint is that the vegetables could be more varied and numerous - the same ones seem to appear each time, and are more of a garnish than an interesting feature of the dish, as they used to be in earlier times.

We ordered the Halibut Daily Special and the Schnitzel with seafood! Both were absolutely delicious!
Safe, clean social distance safety protocols in place! Nice break after months of isolation.

The server was good, but a little close for our liking with coronavirus. The food was about a 7/10! It didn’t come with much bernaise sauce as we would have wanted, and had to ask for more which they gave, we had been there another time and the experience was about a 9/10. So maybe it was just this time! Thanks for the dinner!

Oyster bar is a must try. Food is generally good. We order a variety of dishes including fillet mignon, mackerel, seafood linguine, all match our expectation.

The only thing we didn't like was that one side of the restaurant close to the toilet has some awful smell. Initially we booked a window side table for our anniversary dinner but since we could not stand the smell, we switched to other seats to avoid it.

As usual Steveston Seafood House did not disappoint. Under the COVID circumstances,and not being able to father with family and friends, we took advantage of the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner offered at the Steveston Seafood House. It was very good!

In the many years we have eaten here, birthdays and anniversaries it has been our go to place. This was a low point. It was a big deal to us, we ordered oysters, calamari, seafood salad as well as our entrees. Another first for me, I had the filet mignon, with a skewer of prawns, my wife had the salmon special. Hers was piping hot, mine was room temperature and the steak was overdone, probably because it sat too long waiting for the other dish to come off. The server offered to have it put on the grill to warm, but it was already overcooked and my companion and I wanted to eat together! I did accept the skewer of prawns that were offered, they came out very quickly, hot and obviously burnt. Deserts and coffee was okay, certainly nothing special. The service was very good. But a special occasion had the shine taken off if it with shoddy care from the kitchen. Disappointing for $150 meal. The table behind us played too loud a video on his phone, no one said anything.

I felt safe in regards to Covid-19. Servers all have clear shields on and tight at the chin. It was quiet in the restaurant, tables were definitely 6ft apart. The service as always was friendly with a smile. The food was delicious as always. Perfectly cooked! You definitely should try it, highly recommended.

The owner, Shane always comes over to say hi and thanks for supporting.

Another fantastic, gourmet experience for dinner. One of our favourite restaurants in our Steveston community of Richmond. Amazing personal service and food was as usual exceptional quality. I had the special - mahi-mahi with coconut rice & prawn & scallop skewer & sauce & ever fresh veggies. Husband had the Schnitzel-Richmond with seafood - his favourite. Couldn’t resist the calamari - tender & tempura style. Looking forward to our next visit.

Over the past years we have held many family dinner outings, usually on special occasions, at Steveston Seafood House. It continues to be one of our favourites in the lower mainland, perhaps even the most favourite! We have always enjoyed the food and the service -- both have always been excellent.

We are always super pleased whenever we come to SSH...such exceptional service and quality of food. All fish dishes are cooked perfectly each and every time, we have never been disappointed. SSH is truly a gem and we are so lucky to have such an exceptional restaurant here in Richmond. SSH stays true to west coast seafood cooking traditions and keeps them fresh and interesting. We love this place and look forward to our next dining experience. As well, we felt safe and comfortable with SSH’s compliance with COVID health measures, very well done. Thank you!

My husband had the scallops and loved them!
