Seafood
Beach House in West Vancouver has been completely transformed. From the design of our heritage-designated space to the seafood-centric food menu and curated wine list, everything has been reimagined for a truly West Coast dining experience.

Beach House’s food and drink menus take inspiration from all along the West Coast. Our rotating seafood-centric menu brings fresh, bright flavours and the most in-season local ingredients to the forefront of each dish. Taking particular influence from tours around Southern California, Culinary Development chefs David Wong and Hamid Salimian have thoughtfully blended West Coast dishes with the region’s prominent cultural cuisines. Together with our new extensive martini menu and a reinvigorated wine list that includes all of your favourites – plus an introduction to undiscovered gems – Beach House offers a West Coast experience that’s unlike any other.

Food is good but not excellent. Earls quality. Service is good but not excellent. In the last two times there servers seemed to not be foodies or wine savvy. Need more education and experience. Our Blue Mountain Sparkling wine was corked (smelt damp/musty) and the server’s response was he saw the bartender open the bottle! That doesn’t matter if its corked. The view is excellent though so if the view is important than you look past the issues.

Clam chowder out of stock at 12:30 pm is poor food management. Food quality is 7 out of 10 .

Ever since the completion of your renovation we've wanted to go to the Beach House.
Now, that we've tried it, my wife said that it surpassed her expectations We really enjoyed the patio ocean view and the Dockside burger was perfect. A big thank you for your service and we will be back.

Safety was taken seriously hand sanitizer tables separated waitresses with masks etc felt very safe got a table
On the patio with an amazing view and the food was fabulous!! My husband had the halibut it was exquisite done to perfection and I had the prawn & scallop pesto fettuccine which was delicious!! Both server and hostess wishes us a Happy Anniversary which was a nice touch. Will definitely go back again soon! Can’t beat the view and the food was fabulous!

Excellent location, setting, service and ambiance. Menu selection is limited and although my food was stellar, my wife was disappointed by the choice of the chef/kitchen to use the sparagus stems/ends in the main dish.

We arrived on time for our reservation but stood outside for 10 minutes. There were 2 groups in line ahead of us and they thought the door was locked (I don’t believe it was) so they didn’t go inside and no one came out to invite us in.
It was all a bit awkward as the couple we were dining with were seated inside waiting for us.

Hi Wendy, I'm so sorry for the awkwardness felt at the door, we usually keep them wide open to welcome our guests in but we've been trying to keep them closed the last few days to keep the smoke out and they are original heritage doors that can be a bit sticky. I'll be sure to chat with my host team to make sure we are opening the door for our guest as often as possible! Hope you were able to enjoy lunch with your friends. Kind Regards, Ellen Barbour

Unfortunately we were rushed. Appies came and before we were even half way through those the mains came. We wanted to have a nice relaxed dinner with wine and celebrate, but with our first drink still half full and mains on the table there was no option. Food was good though.

To sit on the Beach Housse patio on a warm summer's afternoon, enjoy fine company over a cold glass of wine is a bit of heaven. The staff wonderful, the food great. A very enjoyable afternoon. Have the Halibut- it melts in your mouth.

Beautiful setting, the staff were excellent. They did a good job regarding physical distancing of tables and following Covid 19 protocols from what we observed.
Although the food was good it was not overly impressive.

Not what we expected. Crowded entry inconsistent with COVID guidelines. Lots of flies in entry holding area.
12 oysters as appetizer with ? 1 oyster fork and 1 spoon ? for two people ??
Main course : Steak/lobster very good. Halibut ok but paired with poor mix of vegetables and ravioli pasta ? Not appetizing and didn't finish.
All in all....very disappointing as we anticipated far more for $ 234.

Hi There, I'm so sorry that we left you feeling disappointed by your experience with us. Our front door entrance way is marked with X's and a socially distanced line up to prevent overcrowding from happening and I will be making sure there is a manager at the door to enforce this safety measure as its our #1 priority. I would love to continue this conversation further if you would like to email me directly at ebarbour@thebeachhouserestaurant.ca so we can discuss further. Regards Ellen Barbour

Even with a reservation and special request you are unable to have patio seating without waiting with walk-ins. We sat, ordered 1 drink and waited for a table closer to the patio. Upon moving to second table you have to settle your bill. Waitress was rude when we did not leave a tip before moving tables. Food choice was small. Brunch on weekend served until 2:00 - not all day.

We were there on a Sunday during the brunch. If you go at that time, you need to be aware that they will give you the regular menu as well as the brunch menu, but there will be some things on the regular menu that they don’t have because they need the ingredients for the Brunch items. This was disappointing to us because our number one choice was not available and our back back up plan was also not available. But it is a lovely location for sure. I feel like they should produce some Kind of brunch menu that has everything that you can actually order and not the things that are not available that you’ve already got your heart set on.

it was my company that made the evening other wise our experience was fairly disappointing . I really love this restaurant. this particular night was special for us as my mom was finally able to have an evening out. I made a reservation a week ahead but was never asked on the app where we wanted to sit. We arrived on time only to be told really we had no options. To sit on patio we would have to wait an hour and there was nothing available to us by the window. We were seated so one in the party had their back to the view. It was our waitress that really took the experience way down. She seem putout by our existence. When inquiring on a menu item for my mom we were asking if we may just have half the food on the plate but we would pay full price. To which she replied “No, it comes as it comes take it or leave it!” 😳. Ok well perhaps this is a fact but to say it like that? Really??She is obviously a more senior waitress on staff, but she was rude. Not sure why she was so put out by us but this really did not help out overall experience. It was so great to spend time with my mom but perhaps being treated like we were such a Nuisance we will have to find another place that is happy to have us as patrons.
