Sensational prix fixe menu, the quality of food, proportions, presentation, starting with delicious ahi tuna poke, and of both sea bass and white sturgeon. Beats any Vancouver “Dine out” easily.

While the restaurant is lovely and has an excellent choice of foods, we found that they seemed overbooked for the time of our reservation. Now it may be because it’s New Year’s and a lot of people wanted to go at 7 o’clock, or it may be something different. We noticed that around 830 the restaurant was emptied out loud. Other than that I would recommend trying this restaurant

The New Year's Eve menu had some appealing choices for each course.
Great value, comfortable atmosphere and nearby parking.
Would definitely return in the future for another meal.

We always enjoy our visits to the Steveston Seafood House. The owner greeted us at the door and made us feel welcome. The food was excellent with nice size portions and high-quality ingredients (highly recommend the sablefish and the filet mignon). Our server was very busy as it was New Years but he made sure that we didn't want for anything. Would highly recommend for entertaining visitors and out of town guests but also hope that the locals routinely visit to ensure that this gem of a restaurant sticks around.

The food was excellent! I had roast duck and my partner had schnitzel. Both dishes were beautifully served, and tasted superb! Yes - it's expensive, but you get what you pay for. I'd go again at the drop of a hat - and I live in North Van!!

The decor was very different from the photos on line. It is very old and had a funky smell inside. The food was great (eggs Benedict), however the fruit salad wasn’t even worth trying. And the scones served before looked ver unappealing.

We had a fantastic meal. The options were varied - there were even several vegetarian entree options - and the portion sizes were generous! The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Service is excellent and overall this is a luxurious dining experience.

Excellent dinner. The Sablefish was like butter and all other entrees were delish. Only slight drawback was the noise level, but perhaps there were just a few louder groups.

It has been many years since we have been to Steveston Seafood. We had made reservations and were initially given a table near the front door. As it was a cold evening out we asked for another table. The room has very nice décor and is very cozy.The tables a spaced far enough apart that you do not have to worry about eavesdropping. The tables are also nice set with fine linens and cutlery. The service was very good. I didn’t get our servers name but she took very good care of us during the evening and even provided us with another basket of bread.
To start my husband and I shared mussels in a bacon, pernod cream sauce. They were very nicely cooked and the sauce was wonderful. We made good use of the bread to scoop up the sauce. For entrees my husband had blackened salmon and I had duck. My husband felt the salmon could have used just a touch more seasoning but then he likes his food really spicy. My duck was excellent and perfectly cooked, the skin was nice and crispy but the duck meat was so tender and delicious. We didn’t have room for dessert.
We had a bottle of wine with dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. It was very relaxing, the food was very good and the service was warm and friendly. We would definitely return.

Steveston Seafood House (SSH) is a must when in Steveston. Their food is delicious and their service is attentive. My family and I very much enjoyed our dining experience tonight. We sat in the quieter space which was isolated from the other diners, just the way we like it. Our servers were pleasant and thoroughly attentive, checking on us often to ensure we had everything we needed, we surely did!

We ordered a few appetizers: calamari rings, mussels in tomato and wine sauce, bacon wrapped scallops, and beet with feta salad. The calamari rings were tender and the batter was light and crispy. The mussels were super plump and juicy. The scallops wrapped with bacon were tasty but anything with bacon is always tasty.

For our mains, we ordered 3 fish dishes (sturgeon, ling cod, and sablefish), and 1 filet mignon. I didn't get a chance to taste the steak but the 3 fish entrees were delicious. My favorite out of the three would have to be the sablefish. It was melt in your mouth like butter delicious! The sturgeon was their special feature for the night. It is the firmer fish out of the three and was my mom's favorite. The ling cod was a large piece that was herb crusted.

SSH has certainly upped their game and I am definitely looking forward to dining here again soon.

This is our favorite restaurant - to celebrate special occasions, to treat ourselves, to take friends, acquaintances and family, or if we just want a really good seafood dinner (the steak is fantastic too). We have been going there for years, and it is always special. Highly recommended.

It was a lovely evening the food was outstanding, we both had the rack of lamb, so good, ate way too much but so worth it. Tina did an awesome job of looking after us, and helping us with our food and wine chooses. We are never disappointed with our measl or service at the Steveston Seafood House, always the best.

Great food and excellent service. It was great to return to a restaurant we have always liked. As it is a high end restaurant, we can only go there on special occasions, but it certainly is worth it. We would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys being well fed and well treated.

I marked that the dinner was a special birthday occassion but unfortunately we received no acknowledgement of such at any time during the dinner. I think a happy birthday greeting would have been nice. Fortunately my wife was not too fussy about such thing, so skin was saved! It was probably an oversight as this is nice restaurant that I regularly go to.

We booked the Steveston Seafood House for my birthday. I was hard pressed to book as the past couple of times the food and service did not meet expectations; especially during brunch where we were placed in a cramped table in a narrow room in the back. I also ordered the frittata which was very dry and inedible.

We arrived and they placed us in a spacious table.
Our server, Kent, was pleasant and affable.
However, the appetizers and kids meals took 35 minutes and the entire meal took 50 minutes to be served. This is far too long. I wouldn’t expect this on a Friday evening.

Yet, the family did enjoy their meals and are willing to return. But as this is my third disappointing experience, I will not choose to return.
