Uli's Restaurant is a White Rock institution. Opened in 1986 by Uli Blume, it was one of White Rock's original waterfront restaurants and quickly became a favourite among locals for its great food and friendly atmosphere. Uli's son Tyson took over operations in 2008 and he picked up right where his father left off – providing the White Rock waterfront with a fun and relaxed place to enjoy a vibrant atmosphere, stunning water views, refreshingly simple food, an extensive international beer list, and a diverse selection of wines. Chef Jennie Silk is also making quite an impression on locals as they flock for her impeccable local flavours on the menu.

    I hadn’t been to Uli’s in quite a while so when my friend suggested it, I agreed to meet her there for lunch. The atmosphere is always enjoyable and I’ve never had a bad meal there. A hot bowl of chowder seemed to be the right choice on a dreary day at the White Rock beach. Our server came to the table promptly and took our order for tea, a warm up to start. After my friend and I had looked over the menu we both agreed on the chowder. The tea came for us and as we poured it into our cups, from very small teapots, most of the water spilled onto the table. Frustrating to say the least. Anyway, we finally were able to enjoy our tea and spent our time getting caught up. The chowder arrived with two slices of focaccia bread. Our server offered to get us more bread if needed but we both declined. The chowder was not what I was expecting and I have to admit I was disappointed. There seemed to be more celery and carrots than seafood or even potatoes. The consistency wasn’t as thick as I was expecting, either. The soup was ok in taste, hot and the focaccia was warm. My friend enjoyed hers and liked that it wasn’t thick. So I guess it’s all a matter of preference. Would have liked more fish, seafood and potatoes. Service was great! I’ll be back in the summer and try a different meal.

    We regularly go to Ulis or take friends here when they come from Van. We love to support local and love the food, and usually thrle service. However, our past two experiences have been lacking. We reserved, as always, and with 5 of us having a good time, ordering drinks/appies/meals and were planning on dessert - were abruptly told when ordering another round that the next reso would be there any minute. As a table of previous servers and restaurant managers we can't understand this lack of notification when making the reso or even when being sat. 1.5 hours is not long enough for 3 courses and drinks for 5 ppl. Especially when our server took 20 mins to even take our food orders. The beer was flat, and we were given a (oh well what other beer do you want) attitude about it. The shoestring fries are still gone and it seems the serving sizes are being cut back on. As our server let us know lettuce is too expensive now - with a strange "first born child" analogy. We would be happy to spend more/have the price raised than get less - or be sent packing partway into what we planned to be the highlight of our night. The staff seemed unhappy the past two visits - they put on a good act at the tables but it was obvious something is amiss.

    Food was delicious as usual. There was a slight mix up with our oysters Rockefeller but we received a bonus one as a solution. Excellent dining experience.

    Terrible service! When we recived our burgers we were all given the wrong one, everyone’s burger was mixed up with one another which made it very frustrating. Waiter was not informative or helpful with anything. Waiter did not tell us if there was an add on price with certain things he was suggesting us to get. The chicken patty was very dry.

    We celebrated our 29th anniversary at Uli's where we'd never been but had heard many good things. It's very casual, which works for us, and I hadn't known what to expect. We enjoyed ourselves and are glad we went, but we won't be rushing back. The first greeter wasn't friendly or happy at all, but our table server was wonderful. Other than lots of burger options, the menu was a bit limited. The drinks were fantastic - The Italian Sour was a huge hit with us. Yum. The food was very good and the portions large; I had the schnitzel Neptune and it was delicious and very large. All in all, it was a great experience. I had to shake off my expectations and readjust to be objective.

    They need to update the online menu! Half the stuff I wanted wasn’t on the menu and from what the waitress said hasn’t been for a year. Mash potatoes had chunks of potatoe. Steak was okay but for $50 each was not impressed.

    Had a wonderful night with my girlfriend here. Food was great. Daniel (I think) was a wonderful server, even though he was very busy. Had him last time I was there over a year ago. Food was top notch! Super tasty! Yes it’s expensive, but if you want great food it costs extra. Worth it! Wonderful evening, thank you!

    I've never had a bad experience at Ulis. The food is always exceptional and I am very grateful for the selection of gluten free options as well. The staff have always been friendly and fun! The view is unmatched and the ambience inside is warm and welcoming. It can get loud in the evenings, which it doesn't bother me, but my Mom does find it difficult to converse in a louder setting.

    When the waiter gave me the machine to pay, I noticed there was no option to tip. I asked him how do I tip and he told me not to worry about it. I was dining by myself. Anyways, I was shocked my bill was $70. Turns out the waiter had added over 20% to the bill as an automatic tip without informing me. I paid bc I didn’t want to make a scene but this was not okay. Will not be dining here ever again.

    The service was fantastic absolutely wonderful waitress but the food was not good the calimari was really soft and chewy they offered to bring me a new one but I said I didn’t want to waste food but they didn’t take it off my bill. Loved the service and will give them another try but calamari was the worst I had in any restaurant ever. Paella was just ok not worth 41

    Bartender was very friendly, and checked up on us regularly. The cocktails and wine were great. The vegan bowl was very good. Unfortunately one of my items on the menu (fried chicken main dish), which I ordered was not so great. The chicken was tender; however the outer crust was very dark; I'm not sure why, perhaps the oil used to cook it was old. When the dish was served, I was told the cabbage/veg was not available and thus a tossed salad was served in lieu. I was disappointed that I was not informed of the needed change prior to my food being served.
