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.
Met by polite and courteous staff who answered all questions. Seafood was excellent. Noise level allowed all 6 guests to be part of the conversation which was nice. A great spot to bring our international guests to taste the best of Vancouver.
Great experience. Absolutely loved it . We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday and the service was great . Romantic atmosphere and just great :)
Consistently great food and fantastic service! Love coming here!
Food was amazing , presentation and taste.
Their “financier” petit four were a real let down after a meal that caliber.
Celebrating a family birthday so choose to come again after wonderful service and amazing food in the Fall. From the attitude of the hostess to the aloofness of our server it wasn’t great. I wasn’t I wasn’t informed that we would be placed in a side room with zero ambiance and called twice to confirm our reservation. I supplied a cake and when the server brought it to the table and just plunked it down In front of the wrong person (she realized her error after we told her for the 4th time whose birthday it was) she actually pushed it across the table to the correct birthday girl. When asked if they sing or anything she said it wasn’t her thing. Honestly there are many other restaurants out there to spend hundreds of dollars on for dinner. Hope it’s gets better at Bluewater soon as we won’t be racing back.
The wait time for food was very long due to a large party in front. Should have offered some concession.
The environment is nice. The service are wonderful. Especially for the lady who served us. Food is tasty except it was too salty especially for the fish. And it seems the soy sauce & the vegetables underneath did not match the favour of the fish. There was too noisy whole night that surprising me. That will not be the first priority cafe that I will suggest my friends to come for dinner. I would strongly recommend if it can reduce their seasonings in the near future.
I just tried the seafood tower. The scallops are a bit salty and the jelly fishes takes a bit strong. But the oysters are delicious and the tunas are nice. I would recommend get the Seafood simpler and order the oysters separately and the entrees. I love their bread with the sauce serves as sides while we are waiting for the tower. Waitress is friendly and no up selling. Great environment. Worth going again :)
The food was the best we've ever had. The service was great and my wife and I had the most memorable night.
Blue Water Cafe was recommended to me by a friend and it certainly lived up to the recommendation. The food and service were fantastic.
Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, wine & features! She made the dining experience first class and was noticed by all. Service was prompt and food was outstanding as always. We will be back soon!
A birthday celebration for our son, it was all fantastic!
