    Top notch service and the food was excellent. Really like the new cocktails, great wine list for Steveston and the Tuna Tataki Salad was delicious. We sat outside in the sun on the beautiful patio and they played the Canucks game. Great night!

    Our server was overworked, waiting on at least 14 tables. He wrote four orders down and got three of them wrong. One food order was received cold not hot as it was supposed to be. The noise level was so high we could barely hear each other speak.

    We enjoyed a lovely dinner with a sunset water view last night. The Salad Nicoise with salmon was on point and very tasty. Best part was the housemade keylime pie! Staff were friendly and efficient. Would return again soon.

    Loved our experience here. Ordered appies and starter drinks for happy hour. Crab dip and muscles were delish. Moraine lake house white was so good. Tried salmon burger and seafood fettuccine both were outstanding. Service was efficient and we were well looked after with bustling crowd. Will be back!

    My salmon tasted very good. However, it was served lukewarm, and when I asked for it to be heated, our waitress took it away and brought it back five minutes later, lukewarm. Then she seemed to forget about us. The view is lovely.

    We had Dine out Vancouver. The appetizers were good, and dessert good. The main courses were disappointing. The seafood bouillabaisse was the worst i have ever had. A few small pieces of fish and seafood. Nothing else in it, including no vegetables. And the broth tasted like tomato soup. My husband had the prawn and scallop linguine. It needed salt and there is no salt or pepper on the tables. We had to wait to catch our servers eye to ask for salt. We will not be going back here.

    One of the 3 scallops in apps dish was kind of dry/overcooked. Would have liked other salad greens instead of just arugula. The pasta in the entree was kinda dry, no sauce to speak of until the bottom of the bowl which had some melted butter & the dish had spaghetti noodles instead of linguine noodles. Quite a bit of sliced scallops along with the 5 prawns with the noodles, so that was nice! The truffle cake for dessert was quite good.

    We did the Dine out menu: The scallop appetizer was delightful but we were not enamoured with the artichoke soup which lacked flavour. The Boullibaise was very good but the prawn and garlic fettuccine was very dry with little sauce. They did bring us tomato sauce to add and that was very good.

    The seafood chowder had four pieces of seafood. 2 small prawns, 1 clam and 1 mussel. The bread that came with the meal was rock hard. Stale? We asked for a softer bread and they did not have anything to replace. The flatbread with prawns was dry and the pesto sauce was way too powerful. Also, came cold. The view was amazing and the service was fabulous. But we came to eat.....and were disappointed.

    Food - Portion is ok. Just like most fine dining. Presentation of the plate is stunning (on Facebook and in real life). Taste is where it falls flat. The scallops were overcooked or just not that fresh. The tuna tartar was just like any poke bowl, not what I would expect for fine dining. The ingredients used for the bouillabaisse was very plain and the soup was average. The sablefish was cooked alright but the taste was so bland. The pot de creme was overpowering. The truffle cake was decent. Service - waitress was friendly and attentive at first. However as the night goes by, the food was pretty slow was a pretty slow day. Took a while for food to come. Waitress never offer to pepper anything. Took me forever to flag the waitress down due to the weird orientation of the room and that the waitresses all hovers around the bar. Ambience - Very nice place. Love the canoe for not being blue but calling itself blue. Volume encourages us to chat without feeling annoyed with people being too loud. Value - Great for the dine out menu. Regular menu isn't expensive for the setting and for it being a fine dining establishment. Portion of food is perfect to fill me up. But the taste of food is what will be holding me back from coming again. I rather my food tastes good than it looking good in pictures and in a nice setting.
