The Boathouse at Kits Beach
Food is consistently good at the Boathouse, views are lovely
Service could have been a lot more snappy... we waited nearly 15 minutes for our drinks..!?!?
it's a very beautiful place and excellent food

The Boathouse has some really good craft beer on tap; worth going for the brews and view. The food just adds to the experience. I had the spring salmon; it was great.
Great service. Nice view.
Can't beat the location! Quintesential Vancouver view!
Very nice but just a bit overpriced. It’s priced as a top end restaurant when it really is more mid range.
Very good service, one of the best views in town rain or shine, and solid menu
atmosphere for sunset dining was superb as usual. the option to add starter and dessert for only $12.99 is a great deal.
It was a combination Father's Day and Birthday celebration. We had excellent service and it was a beautiful early evening.
Our server’s name was Keith. From the moment that he warmly greeted us until we were ready to leave he made us feel welcome. He was very attentive and observant (for example, he overheard my sister’s name and then proceeded to address her by name from then on), familiar with the menu, had a great sense of humour yet wasn’t overbearing. I especially appreciated that he really acknowledged my Dad and made an effort to treat him especially well given that it was Father’s Day.
My last experience at this restaurant was not a positive one... this more than made up for it. Thanks Keith!
Portions were extremely small for the price paid. Had salad, entree & desert... still left there hungry
My Mum and I had dinner on the patio during the sunset. The Ahi Tuna was superb and the cocktails are delicious. Our server was delightful.
Great food with friends and family, view and ambience was memorable.
I requested a table by the window and were happy to have been seated there. Nice ambience and great evening.
Restaurant doesn’t have air conditioning and no ventilation. . It was in full sun and
a hot day which made it unbearable. The hostess should warn people otherwise we should have walked out. I have never been so hot dinning out.
My ravioli was good and my wife’s halibut was over cooked.
Can’t beat the setting, and we were spoiled by fabulous weather. Our waiter was awesome, a friendly, humorous young man. Food fresh, well prepared, but a bit pricey for what it is. Salsa verde for the fish lacked punch, I like my home made better!!
Birthday. Wish that the server came by more. She was pleasant but forgot items twice. I understand she was tending to a lot of the tables though.
The Boathouse is fun, pretty noisy and with outstanding views. The food was good in that the fish was not overcooked (so easy to do and seen in many restaurants) and the pairings were imaginative. The menu was reassuringly small but could have done with a couple more choices for single meals. Lots of sharing plates and that's probably because many groups go there - but we were two people eating separately as one did not like fish.
On the whole 4 well deserved stars.
We were a table of 13 for a grad celebration. The service and good were excellent and in a beautiful space. Everyone raved. We will ve back.
Food & Service was excellent as was the beachfront location. In need of a good scrub and Reno.
Our server was exemplary - charming, efficient, professional. He made our evening! The noise level, however, wasn't great especially when we had seniors in our party.
Always awesome, halibut was amazing.
It was an enjoyable dinner at a beautiful evening. My friends from Australia and I enjoyed our food a lot, in particular, the Choruzo Mussels and Mocha Pie. Moreover, we really appreciated the excellent services from Sebastian. He made our dinner memorable. When I return there for dinner next time, I will try to ask him to service us again for sure.
Entrees were very pricy. Our fish dishes were severely over cooked and dry. We asked for new fish. After another 30 minutes of waiting for new fish dishes, the new entrees were no better. Halibut and salmon equally as dry and chewy. The only saving grace was that the entrees were taken off our bill and we enjoyed a nice view of the beach from our seating. Disappointing dining experience on my husband’s birthday.
Great staff! Great food, especially seafood, Great view!
Great food, the server was great. Enjoy this place
Terrible service!!!!! Great food. Overall not a very good experience if you compare that with what you pay.
The service was excellent and the patio dining phenominal, but the food fell short (my salmon was overcooked - on the dry side, as was my husband's halibut also).
Restaurant has a wonderful setting and ambience. Food was ok, servers were attentive and friendly. And they let us stay on past the closing time, thanks!
Only complaint was the special blackened Tilapia was extremely spicy. And instead of offering to replace the dish with something else, we were given some kind of yoghurt to eat with the fish to neutralize the spiciness! Never encountered that kind of solution ever?!!
To compensate for this they did give us one slice of ice cream cake split into two to share between 9 people?! And no one from the kitchen came out to apologize 😦
Our meal was very good. The service was slow. We had to wait a long time to have our food order taken. We had to ask twice for one of our party's drink. The service was friendly, but not attentive at all. She walked by us a few times without taking our order.
Went there for our daughter's BD. Food arrived sporadically; with each dish arriving a few minutes after the other. Food was cold. Coffee was old brew (although it was changed once we complained). Soup arrived after the food (although we had asked for it to be served first), and it was a bowl as opposed to the cup we had asked for. This used to be our go to place for kids' BD celebration; not anymore. Quite dissapointed.
Food was unreal - unfortunately the service was very poor. Slow server who barely checked in - we had to ask other employees for basic things such as more water.
I really like this restaurant and this is my second time here. But It’s a little bit busy today... three waitresses asked me if I’ve made reservation (I did) but only the last one lead us to a table. And then the next ten minutes nobody came until I asked for water. But the guy was really helpful and nice when I complained this situation plus the food’s good. I guess I will come again but hopefully next time will be a better experience!
The washroom is dirty, the environment is not as clean as before
Everything was great wish we could have a window seats for dinner. Otherwise it was okay.
The location and view are amazing, but the food is not good for a vegetarian. The only choices were pasta, which I don't order in restaurants because generally I can make better at home, and a Beyond Meat burger. Many vegetarians don't eat meat because they dislike the taste and texture of meat. Very disappointing.
We were seated with a fantastic view of the waterfront and watched the sun go down while we dined. Our meals (sesame crusted ahi tuna with mushroom rice and bok choy for her, grilled wild sockeye salmon with potatoes and seasonal vegetables) were good (particularly the sauce around the ahi tuna, which was perfectly cooked). However, the only things that were warm on our plates were the bok choy and potatoes. Large portions were very nice but the timing of the plating was off. Cold rice and slightly overcooked salmon left us with the impression they had been left under the warming tray a bit too long before being served. Still, overall a nice evening out to celebrate our anniversary.
A must do, especially if you’ve got visitors
Good football great location
