Miserable rainy night—met friends for dinner here and we had a great time. Open table reservation, they gave us the window table. Great service and tasty special. Made a gluten-free option for one at our table. We’ll be back!

I went here as it had a good star rating but was underwhelmed and will not return. The calamari was not great. The seafood pot wasn’t either, the crab in it- which is my favourite food tasted especially “seafood/fishy”. The filet was the saving grace and was delicious, juicy and tender. There was leftover bread on the table and that rarely happenes. The service was a miss, too slow, not observant and always in a rush when speaking.

The food & service were amazing! Everything we had was so tasty & fresh. The scallops were cooked to perfection, as were the prawns. The menu is so appealing that it was very hard to choose, we will have to come back again!

As always - great food, great service, comfortable ambience. A great restaurant for enjoying a relaxing, un-rushed meal, with great food (surf and turf equally great), and an atmosphere that allows comfortable conversation with your partner(s) at the table.

I would highly recommend the roast lamb, served popsicle style,with assorted fall vegetables and roast potato. The Full Sail cocktail is outstanding.
The service was excellent and the pricing very fair.

Steveston Seafood House is one of those rare finds. It's a 30 minute drive from downtown Vancouver near the fishing port, but well worth the excursion. The night we dined there they were having their Oyster Festival with the incredible bargain price of 99 cents each - we had 2 dozen. The rest of our meal included mussels (wonderfully plump and fresh) and a calamari dish that is simply the best we've ever had, anywhere. Strongly recommend.

We had business visitors from California. We need a place that catered to our fabulous west coast seafood, but also offered lots of alternate choices for those that weren't seafood lovers. Steveston Seafood House fit the needs perfectly with a great menu selection, imaginative daily specials, and great service. We will definitely return for more!

Outstanding seafood restaurant, so close to home I almost completely overlooked this little gem. Service was professional, friendly and more than competent. Oysters in the half shell were on sale, so fresh served on a bed of ice, simply irresistible. Their Seafood Pasta was very good, shrimps and scallops just a tad well done. Caesar's salad was excellent. Their Richmond Schnitzel was light yet juicy inside, one of the best Schnitzels I've ever eaten, simply delicious, we will definitely be back.

I had a very enjoyable dinner here with friends last Saturday. My favourite table is table no. 1
located right in front of the fireplace. Especially nice and cozy on cold fall and winter evenings.
The food and service is consistently good. Though the restaurant was pretty full, the noise level
was pretty low.

As always, the food and service was delicious. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and our menus actually had a congratulatory note printed right on our menu. Nice touch. My husband started with delicious oysters and we moved on to calamari and caesar salad, then finished with duck and halibut. Really good food at this restaurant.

We came here with friends from out of town and had a wonderful meal. Our waiter Kent, was everything a good waiter should be; knowledgeable and engaging with his guests. We had the lamb, sable fish, bouillabaisse and oysters. All the food was delicious but the lamb was especially good. Don't forget dessert if you come. The home made ice cream and the panna cotta are a must have.

Friendly Waitress, bar tender happy. Greeted promptly. They can accommodate large group and telephone call confirmed open table reservation within minutes they called too, for the large group booking.
Good cleanliness on walls , tables, etc.
Meals were all good, share platters were per person so you don't have to order one size fits all type dish.

Steveston Seafood never fails to impress me. I've been here more times than I can remember and every time the service is amazing, and the food is cooked deliciously and presented beautifuly. The restaurant has a peaceful and calm aura which is perfect for a date or just to have a family event. I'd recommend this place to anyone. I'll be back for sure.

We ate here for our wedding anniversary after reading reviews about it online. It was definitely worth the hype. We came in and were greeted warmly by the staff and owner. When checking out the menu, we noticed a special message wishing us a Happy Anniversary and that they were happy to have us for our special occasion. The food was delicious. The bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers were yummy and wonderfully presented on our plate. I had the Haida Gwaii Halibut while my wife had the Schnitzel meal. We both enjoyed our dishes a lot. They were cooked perfectly. I liked the squash spaghetti that accompanied my halibut the most. Again, the presentation of the dishes looked like artwork. Finally, we had Vanilla Panna Cotta for dessert, which was a great way to end the night! Steveston Seafood House was the best restaurant experience we've ever had. They were pleasant, service was impeccable, food was outstanding, and it made our anniversary one to remember. We plan to come here again in the future.

The food is always excellent. There are wonderful items on the regular menu and great seasonal offerings. The servers are polite, helpful and unobtrusive. The ambiance is perfect for a small gathering of friends and conversation. The windows look out on Moncton Street so it is not the most scenic place to dine, but the focus of the evening is not the scenery, it is your friendships and the great dining experience. The crab cakes were loaded with crab deliciousness and the duck was moist and flavourful. The portion sizes even allow you to have room for dessert. The dark chocolate bomb is wonderful!

The chocolate bomb is THE Bomb.
Also they have an excellent selection of seafood from various sources, prepared in good style. Steveston makes a slightly quieter place for an after dinner stroll than the more hectic downtown Vancouver, and parking is much easier. An excellent alternative for an evening.
