We enjoyed deliciously tender short rib. I felt the yams were a little too sweet. The dish came with cauliflower, but I would have served it with green beans to be more balanced with the yams.

Unfortunately, you were only presenting a Dine Out menu.
Portions were small for the price. The kitchen plated on cold plates which cooled the food prematurely.
With the restaurant less than half full having a bowl of risotto arrive with the surface already developing a skin was disappointing.
The flavors were good, not mind blowing.
The staff claimed that the restricted menu was due to the ‘small kitchen size’... really??? So when you are featuring your full menu, do you struggle to produce those items?
Not certain I will return to witness disappointment again.

I went to the Beach Bay Cafe as part of Dine Out Vancouver. The service was great and the food was excellent. Perhaps a bit more variety in wine list would be an asset, but what we chose was fine.

When we made the reservation we were not told it was only the "dine out vancouver" menu. I was not very impressed but gave it a shot. I ordered the arctic char and my fiancé ordered the seafood risotto with squid ink. The char was overcooked and the risotto had way too much squid ink, that's all you could taste. I was not impressed with anything we had. This used to be one of my favorite little gems but apparently their has been a chef change. Needless to say I won't be going back, such a shame

Food quality is good, but portion is small. Also, this is $30 dineout, but in the end they charge $35 for the short rib we picked ( but this is shown in the $30 dineout menu)
We have to eat Ramen afterwards !

The food & ambiance was not bad but sadly everytime a new restaurant opens on Denman st or the Westend, they never take into consideration the demographics of the area. They don't do their research. There is a high population of seniors, foreign exchange students, homeless, tourists (more commonly in the summer) & a sprinkling of middle income people in this community. Unfortunately, there's not a great demand for a higher end restaurant in this area. The Boathouse is a main stay but that's about it. I like the concept but it would do better in an area like Yaletown where it leans more to that demographic. Sadly, I don't see them lasting. They barely have anyone in there half the time.

We spent a lovely evening at this cute neighborhood restaurant, the food was really good, the portions were fair and the service was very professional, attentive and nice. I really wanter to have beef tartar for dinner as i saw it on the menu before our visit, but they had just changed their menu and didn’t have tartar anymore. Nevertheless our waiter asked the chef, and exceptionally I could enjoy their amazing beef tartar! Will definitely come back!

We had a wonderful weekend brunch with a beautiful view! The service went above and beyond, they even made us up a delicious homemade syrup when they had run out of maple syrup. Our meals were delicious and carefully prepared, right down to the side dishes and garnish. We had a 10/10 experience, thank you!

Very friendly Cafe and a beautiful location. There is a small outdoor seating area overlooking English Bay and a quirky little park. We had the cod fish and chips which were very fresh and delicious. It was served with an adequate amount of tartar sauce and a small salad. They also do take out orders of the fish and chips which would be nice to do if picnicking on the beach or in nearby Stanley Park.

We have dined here a few times, and we're always surprised that it isn't busier. The food is great, so is the service. The place should be much busier. I hope this recommendation helps.

Very expensive and although the quality was good we felt we were paying mostly for the location. In the 7-9 period when we were there, there were only a few other diners. We would not return, given other better choices in the area.

Lovely place for dinner overlooking English Bay near Stanley Park. Watched the sunset for the patio and it was perfect. The food got a 4 out of 5 stars because my salmon could have been better seasoned. There were about 4 beets and 4 mushrooms that came with it and I would have preferred more of each.

I did have the deconstructed lemon meringue parfait for dessert and it was fabulous.

My wife and I came here for the first time for Easter Sunday brunch. Her salmon eggs benny was great and the watermelon mimosas were very tasty. Unfortunately those are all the highlights. While our waitress was very pleasant the kitchen was slow despite plenty of staff and a half empty restaurant. My chocolate syrup French toast was a total fail. Doughy bread with very little syrup that was only semi sweet made for a dry and bland meal. I would have ordered some maple syrup but our waitress never came back to ask us how everything was until after we were finished which by then is too late. I didn't even bother to finish eating it. While I acknowledge we were sitting under a speaker the music was unnecessarily loud,too loud for conversation. If only the music was at least decent instead of the horrible lounge cover music we had to endure. While in a great location, we won't be in a hurry to come back. Too bad

The food looked & tasted great and was well priced. They were busy, but the bartender came to the table to get our drink order and then the server came to tell us about the specials. Recommend the Chipotle Seafood Bowl & The Crispy Baked Cod. Sharp room with good vibe & great view of the Beach. Will be back for the Patio.

Chef Saolo outdid himself with s very generous serving of Salmon Poke.
The Pork Shoulder that followed was exceptionally delicious. But the Cheese Platter! WOW!!! Such a wonderful variety!
Tamara was her usual, personable best.
Adrian whipped up an interesting French 75 cocktail.
All I'm all, I enjoyed another satisfying and delightful evening.

First time trying this place out, great location! Too bad that's the only good thing about this place. The server explained that they had a very busy day and "ran out" of few items on menu. This includes all small plates, fish n chips, steak, muscle & fries, pasta, all sides....
whaaattt....Are we on a candid camera episode? 😳
We asked well can you tell us what's on the chef's tasting menu? Server said she didn't know and it's a surprise? what the heck? Bottom line, the food that we did order was not impressive and over priced. No next time thank you!

We took advantage of Dine out Vancouver to try this place and reviews were good, so we wanted to try it. The service was excellent, we didn't feel rushed. Food was good but nothing spectacular. The dessert was disappointing. Nevertheless, I'd go back and try their regular menu.
