Still my favorite go to seafood restaurant in the city. Expecially nice when you can sit on the patio
Delicious and nice bar. Great for date or client dinner. Good location.
I like to go here for the sushi if I am dinning with friends. If it is a special occasion, the lobster with beurre blanc is outstanding.
As good as advertised!
My best seafood experience eating in a city that is full of amazing seafood restaurants. First class service, creative appetizers and delicious entrees. It is always packed so be sure to make a reservation.
Fun spot, great food and service. We had a team lunch there and it was perfect!
They good staff and a welcoming environment.
They are always friendly
Every visit to Blue Water is a gastronomic oasis and a rest for the soul. The brigade focusses on ever dish, every side, and all of the elements have their own, curated taste and power. Over the years I have gone there sometimes right off the plane and been rejuvenated by the service, the food, and the TLC that the floor manager ensures flows to everyone.
Really nice :) Great service, delicious food. They know how to make everything taste good. I can't wait to go back again.
second vacation to Vancouver and both times visited Blue Water Café, this time with Irish cousins who were visiting from Belfast, we all loved the food, service and experience, many thanks to all who were involved in making the evening special
The best seafood restaurant I have experienced. Can't wait to go back. They have a very large and efficient staff, well trained and very attentive. I have been there once for a dinner and once for a 50th anniversary celebration and everything was superb both times. I highly recommend it.
Love this place, have never been disappointed ever.
Food is always the yums!!!
Definitely would recommend to anyone of my friends.
Keep up the great work!
Delicious! Our server was outstanding. I just think a couple small plates were a tad overpriced but we were very happy with the experience. They have a great list of wines. I absolutely recommend!
As always, we were delighted to introduce our guests to your South Surrey facility. We could hear in their voices that their experience echoed ours. We're consistently pleased and grateful for the kindness shown to us through your great service and outstanding food quality. Bravo S & L Restaurants and by extension, the Joseph Richard Group. ~ W.

Incredible knowledge of the menu, cheerful service that made this fine dining experience feel low-key. Wonderful spot. Upon making the reservation, it was implied that there were few spots available, and that we'd have to finish up in 1.5 hours - place was virtually empty on arrival. Not sure why that practice is in place, but Blue Water Cafe is a wonderful spot for out-of-towners and special occasions alike.
The food was so delicious; our server explained the oyster selection to us, and along with the La Frenz Chardonnay, they were magnificent. The main courses were equally wonderful, and dessert was the perfect finish. Such a great evening!
I was not confinced from the food.
The Service was okay but not best and it was loud
It was for my Mothers Birthday, and the experience was excellent.
We were in Vancouver for a Pre-cruise visit and really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was fantastic. We had the fish tacos and they reminded me of many happy times spent in San Felipe, Baja California where I first became acquainted with fish tacos!! The drinks were also very good and the view was great. Would definitely dine here again. The service and the food was wonderful.
Was fabulous at all levels from food to service and ambiance
Zum Abschluss unserer Kanada Reise haben wir im Blue Water Café gegessen. Das Essen war ausgezeichnet. Das Dessert etwas einfach. Die Lautstärke war sehr hoch. Es war ein Erlebnis!
Excellent seafood and atmosphere. Second time there and we were not disappointed
Considering the price of meals, the food was expected to be better. Service could also have been more thoughtful since we were foreign guests not user to the menu.
Mit Sicherheit eines der besten seafood –Restaurants auf dem nordamerikanischen Kontinent. Sowohl Auswahl als auch Qualität der Speisen sind erste Klasse. Kein Chi-Chi, sondern beste, frischeste Zutaten gekonnt arrangiert und präsentiert.
Die Weinkarte ist ordentlich, bedarf aber der Abrundung nach oben. Dafür ist die Bestückung der Bar von geradezu unglaublicher Vielfalt; die Barkeeper haben alles drauf, was jemals einem Mixbecher entkommen ist.
Der Laden ist wahnsinnig beliebt und deswegen auch entsprechend laut, nein LAUT.
Habe extra meinen Flug um einen Tag verschoben, um einen Abend dort verleben zu können – und es hat sich gelohnt!
Amazing meal as always - food was delicious and service was amazing. I dine at Blue Water frequently for business meals with clients. I brought a client from Toronto who had never been to Blue Water. After dinner, he told me it was the best meal he had ever had. Huge compliment considering he has eaten at many restaurants for business dinners!
Incredible from start to finish- beautifully created dishes (try the seafood platter for two), and attentive but not overbearing service. Can not recommend enough.
One of the best dinner services we have had this year. Absolutely stunning in every way and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you for a beautiful evening!
Excellent meal here, my husband got the scallops that we to die for( if we ever get to go back I’m getting them next), I had the halibut special which was tasty but wasn’t quite as hot as would have liked. Didn’t want to take the time to have them warm it up more and then have my husbands meal grow cold. We also had an excellent selection of oysters on the half shell recommend by our excellent waiter. Service was fantastic and friendly. 3 scoops of yummy sorbet for dessert.
We were visiting
Vancouver from Florida and picked Blue Water due to it's high rating. We
were not let down. Very fresh seafood. Not over cooked. Our server was attentive and helpful.
Beautiful place to eat and very accommodating. The only other place in the world where I’ve experienced this quality of dining is Attica in Melbourne, Australia. If you enjoy seafood like i do, it is the best choice in Vancouver IMO.
Great waiter, great wines, great dish presentation, awesome and fresh flavors. The works. I loved it.
Everything you want in a Vancouver restaurant, including very attentive service.
My father LOVED the lobster bisque feature and the lamb tbones were to die for!
As always, they go above and beyond with food and service! Can’t wait to go back!
Although everything was lovely it was not a “blow me away” restaurant. For the price I wouldn’t go back.
For being sold out every night I would have expected the kitchen to be A LOT FASTER. We waited quite a long time for our dishes. Even sashimi took a looong time.
Went there based on good Trip Advisor and local reviews on a Wednesday night - waiter was surly and non-attentive -tried to rush us - didn't fill water glasses - place so noisy couldn't talk- overpriced food - very small portions - wine section was limited
The service was excellent and the food was very good but after all the hype, it just didn't WOW me
best food we ate in vancouver so far as tourists coming from asia
Execellent as always.
Next time, I will ask to be seated in the main room
Outstanding seafood. Great service and suggestions by our waiter. Wine service and support was excellent. I will return.
