The staff were welcoming and had a reserved table ready and waiting for us. Our server was polite and efficient with drinks and food order. Our backs were to the windows so we did not have a view of the waterfront but our guests enjoyed the expansive view.
Beach House is Excellent
I live in West Van and frequent often and never had a bad experience. Keep up the good work.
Had a great time with my friends！
I’ve been to the beachhouse multiple times and occasions. I’ve always had the best service. I try to bring my friends and also let my guests that I serve at my restaurant about the beach houses food, service, and view. If it was closer to my house I would definitely want to serve there!
Enjoy many lunches, happy hour and dinners at this great restaurant
Very disappointing. We had a reservation. A full 20 minutes after placing our order, we still did not have any beverages, and the waiter arrived to say the the kitchen was out of the menu item that we had ordered. He brought us menus to make another selection. 10 minutes after that, we finally received beverages with the explanation that the hot water dispenser had broken so he had to use the espresso machine to get hot water for tea, the coffee was lukewarm and only half a cup. We were offered an order of pan bread complimentary in compensation for the inconvenience. When the food finally arrived it was fair at best, we did not receive refills for our beverages despite having ordered them, and in the end we were also billed for the pan bread. Overall, not a good experience.
The food was excellent. The service wasn’t that great, but I think it’s because our waitress got really busy.
Took 30 mins to get first cocktail to the table. Service was slow but did get better as night went on
Lovely atmosphere, friendly service and tasty cuisine with something for everybody on the menu. Would love to return in the summer to appreciate the waterfront view. It was the perfect spot to reunite with a former classmate from high school some 46 yrs after graduation! The only criticism I can make is that the background noise was a bit disturbing and made it difficult for conversation in such an open concept.
Four of us arrived soaking wet and 30 mins early! The staff were most helpful with getting our wet coats off and seating us. Lovely reception.
Service was fast, friendly, and helpful. Our waiter was helpful in agreeing to provide an item not on the menu.
It is very noisy in this place. If they turned of the music it would be better.
Good food and service, the menu was updated since my last visit, much improved.
One of my Fav restaurants. Great happy hour option for appies and wine (including sangria) before 6:00! Great variety of options steak, fish, veggie, dairy free and gluten free! Beach house salad dressing is my absolute fav..
Another great meal enjoyed at The Beach House. We can always count on fresh, local, seafood with tasty sauce. Despite the snow, we still enjoyed awesome views.
I highly recommend The Beach House for anyone looking for a memorable meal; whether it's a formal business meeting, a romantic date, or just old friends getting together - you'll never regret choosing The Beach House in West Van for your special occasion.
Another very enjoyable experience for a great lady's birthday celebration . Thank you.
We had a our wedding at the Beach House and the views are spectacular. I am glad you have changed your menu a little. We have noticed the food has improved in the last year. We just had brunch there yesterday and really liked the menu.
I have been to the beach house quite a few times before. So when it came time to book a brunch for a special occasion, this place was one of the first that came to mind. I have to say that myself and all of our gyears were deeply disappointed. Our service was extremely slow. Our drinks took forever to come, and the cappuccino machine was broken so we had to have straight coffee. They forgot the mimosas that were ordered for our drinks. Our food came out and it was cold. It it looked like it it had been pre-cooked and thrown together. With one of the gas being a cook themselves, they were sad to see the quality of the food that came out of the kitchen. They forgot one of the items that was ordered, and we had to remind them to bring it. I have to say it was very disappointing meal, we were not asked how we would like our eggs done, or anything else that they could do for our meals. I could understand all of this if the place was absolutely busting full, but it was our table and around five other tables that were in the restaurant. It is a big space and there were barely any patrons in it. The atmosphere is beautiful, although the building itself is really run down. The bathrooms are falling apart, somethings are literally held together with tape. This is an establishment in West Vancouver and it is so sad to see it in the condition that it is. Until it is renovated or changes Management I don’t believe myself or anyone that was in our party will return.
We had a superb "friend" reunion with an awesome lunch, excellent, friendly service and magnificent views at the Beach House Restaurant! We highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
Booked for Valentines Day. No front of house service for at least 5 minutes. Husband had to
find service and came back with a waiter who reluctantly found our reservation and showed us to a table. Absolutely no recognition of Valentines Day on the menu at all - just another week day. Asked waiter if any Valentine specials (including dessert) and answer was no. Disappointing experience for anticipated special occasion.
We enjoyed an excellent meal. Food was cooked to perfection and it was very flavorful. Our server was great too.
The house red wine was not very good but we found another bottle of red to suit our tastes.
The restaurant was a little chilly.
Apparently some heating problem. Fortunately my date was near a portable heater.
The Beach House is our favourite venue, especially on those rare occasions where it is actually sunny in the winter, here in West Vancouver. Nothing better than Happy hour to while away an hour or so on some good food, great service and amazing views. Followed by a walk on the seawall. Could not be Better anywhere in the world and believe me We've been everywhere:) Our server was particularly genuine and lovely as was her busboy/food delivery person? All in All we had an Amazing, Lovely and Loving Valentines day dinner albeit a few days early.. After 50 yrs of being together we can say that the Beach House always reminds us of when we were young and how much we loved the ocean, restaurants and going out for dinner - just the two of us. Thanks to everyone at the Beach House for always delivering on an amazing memorable evening.
Made a reservation for my dad's birthday dinner, which my sister came in out of town for. We arrived early for our reservation time and were happy to wait until our table came available. 30 minutes after our reso time, we were offered space in the bar with complimentary drinks, as the table before us had yet to clear. We were pretty hungry by this point but the bar would have been alright had they handled it better. The hostesses were very lovely about everything, however, the situation appeared to have not been communicated to the server in the lounge. It took us an additional 5+ minutes to get menus once we were seated and then no one arrived for another 10 minutes to take our order. We were still not at our reserved table, because it hadn't been cleared yet. We ended up getting up and leaving and ordering sushi takeout from somewhere else. I understand that Saturday nights can be busy, however, restaurants should make sure they have enough buffer time in between reservations when seating tables (there were 5 of us). This was one of my parents' favourite restaurants and I don't know whether we'll be returning. The manager did speak with us on the way out, however, we still had to ask whether there was anything additional they could do for the experience, as no solution was offered. Not sure if we'll be back as the whole experienced soured our enjoyment of this restaurant.
Had a wonderful evening there! Excellent food, wine and service.
Amazing food.. good views! The food is fresh and well prepared. The views are good but even better on the patio when they open it up. Pricey but worth it.
A great day at the Beach house with sunshine, good food, good service
Everything was lovely from the start to finis.Excellent service, food and atmosphere!
Can’t wait to come back in the summer and sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view!
great as always...wine list super...service excellent...
Fabulous food & setting. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic food with fantastic service in a setting that is fun and comfortable. We enjoy celebrating birthday event here.
superior service and great food!Wonderful view and menu- a gem:)
Very much enjoy dining every time I go. It surprises me however, that a Vegan/Veg menu still isn't available. I over look it because I like the restaurant, and make due with a tasty dish or two, but I really miss not being able to order food I prefer to eat. More and more restaurants are adding veg/vegan options I have noticed, as our culture is changing, and it is my hope that an additional menu option soon will be available at the Beach House. BTW, our server was fantastic, very well trained.
We always enjoy the Beach House. The quality of the food is consistently great and the service is always attentive. We love to have a table for two on the west side or a booth or table for four. We go for Andy occasion, spontaneous or a celebration. Everyone in our family has their favourites.
We so enjoyed the menu, something for everyone, and quality was excellent. Thank you.
Very disappointing in all respects - service, menu, quality. This used to be a restaurant where you could go for a really nice meal. It has become a glorified fast food chain type of restaurant. Too bad, it is a great setting and could be so much better.
Staff willing to go the extra mile by doing the right things, the right way, at the right time, with a sense of humour!
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere.
It was a special get together of friends. The staff and service was very good but we were really very close to the table beside us so was very crowded. The noise level was quite loud as well. All in all the experience was very good.
We paid an earlier visit to the Beach House and it was very disappointing in all aspects. What a difference a few months can make. Giving the restaurant another chance to impress we were delightfully surprised to find a complete turnaround. The food we had enjoyed in the past was back on the menu and was well prepared and delicious, with a good selection of wine by the glass to match. The ambience and location of the restaurant has always been a major plus point but the service, which we had found so poor on our last visit, was a memorable and positive feature of our dinner this time around - thanks to a large extent to our excellent waitress, Nina M. Kudos to Nina for making our return to the Beach House such a pleasure. We will be back to enjoy more meals at the Beach House and we do hope that these improvements are maintained. Recommended.
