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.

The food was excellent. The service was very professional. The ambiance could use some work. Kinda crowded and dated atmosphere. The food quality made up for it though!

Valentine's Day which may account for noise level and at-times, slow service. Steak was enjoyed. The prime rib, not so much.

Went out with a group of girlfriends on a snowy night. Food was delicious, service was friendly and unassuming. Will definitely recommend to anyone who loves their seafood fresh and yummy weather you are looking for a quiet romantic get away or a group outing.

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.

Our sablefish and salmon were both overdone, taste was bland, plating was not appealing at all. Portion sizes were way too big for the presentation to be pleasing to the eye. The rest of the food was just alright to warrant the prices.

Service was good though.

This is a very traditional seafood restaurant with a limited menu. Food was good if you like this type of restaurant. It kinda reminds me of restaurants from 30 years ago but not in a bad way. Will I go back? ...probably not but if someone suggest a group outing to this place....I would be ok with it. Service was very good...our server was friendly and attentive.

Quality of seafood was good but we were thrown off by the service a little. Server didn’t know much about the oysters when asked (which you would expect from a Seafood House) and when he dropped a piece of food from our dish, did not offer to replenish.
The chickpea salsa was a bit tasteless but overall, I would return as the food quality was pretty good.

We went there for brunch. The brunch was great, as it has a bit of everything to satisfy everyone's taste bud. Food taste great, and the service was amazing. The waitress we had are quite attentive and ensure that our needs are met. The only thing I didn't quite like was the Oyster Rockefeller, I had small bit of oyster shell in the food where it almost chip my teeth when I was trying to chow down the food. But the taste was good (just minus the oyster shell).

Friendly, excellent food, service, wines. Good background music - NO loud rock nor hip hop. Consistently very good! They have an excellent brunch menu on Saturdays and Sundays -- I believe 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. They are open for dinner 7 nights per week.

Interior ambience does not reflect the quality of the food and service. On the evening of our meal it was noisy, no doubt because it was a full house, but it made conversation difficult at our table for six.
The entrance is somewhat cramped with little seating for waiting patrons.
However we had a nice evening and the food was first class as was the service.

I ordered the special which was prime rib. Since it was a special you’d think everything would be fresh and hot. When my food came, the mashed potatoes were cold, the vegetables were over cooked and dried out. The prime rib had a sauce that didn’t taste right. It was hard to cut the meat as they gave a very dull knife. My husband ordered the Alaskan king crab. He had dried out rice, and over cooked vegetables. The crab didn’t have much flavour so they give melted butter to drowned it in. My husband said it didn’t help. I was very disappointed in this restaurant especially since it’s very pricy. So not worth it !!!
