    Our server was extremely friendly and had a great sense of humour. It was my dad's 75th birthday and we were taken care of very well by all the staff. Food variety was amazing and we all enjoyed our dinners. Cocktails were excellent as well.

    Service was very slow. We had three children with us, and our party arrived by 6:30. Food took approximately 45 min to arrive. It was not what we expect from a high end restaurant.

    Beautiful dinner on the patio looking at the water. Just the perfect setting. Service was a bit slow as they were short staffed but I think that’s a sign of the times. They tried their best. All our meals were hot and tasted great. My tuna poke bowl was yum!! Will definitely go back.

    It's been a long time since I've been to the Boathouse with my senior parents, and we were really looking forward to it. The folks enjoyed their dinner, a prawn curry rice dish, and my salmon burger was ok. We had creme brulee for dessert which was a disappointment. I'm not sure why, it just wasn't very good and we only had 1 or 2 bites each (we were sharing between the 3 of us) and left the rest. I had a bit of trouble ordering as the menu doesn't include any gluten free information which would have been helpful. The waiter was wonderful and I felt bad that he had to go to the kitchen to check on the gluten free information a couple times before I could select dinner. Overall a pleasant evening but just ok.

    SLOW SERVICE; COLD FOOD It was twenty minutes before we were given menus and water; after ordering, another 20 min. passed before someone else’s food was delivered to our table; another 20 min. before we got what we’d ordered. Much to our dismay, the Eggs Benedict were COLD!! Our server was pleasant but didn’t check on us or offer a coffee refill. One server whose attention we were able to get said she’d be right with us and then walked away, never to be seen again. The manager said she would ‘comp’ our meals, but when we got our bills, we had been charged full price. When we spoke to her we didn’t get the sense that she was terribly concerned that we’d had a disappointing experience. It’s been a while since we’ve visited a Boathouse; it’ll be a very long while before we go back. Overpriced, poor value for the money.

    Went for brunch. Excellent food and service. The cooks who were on knew what they were doing. Perfect eggs benedict, and the scrambled eggs were properly scrambled (not a chopped up omelette one gets in most places if ask for scrambled eggs). Server was friendly and professional. Overall one of the best meals I have had at the Boathouse.

    Food was good, but ambiance was lacking. Server was nice but obviously new and they rushed all the food out back to back (appies and dinner). Crowd was a mix of people out for a nice dinner and white trash with dirty shorts and tank tops.

    Our server Michael is an absolute character! Very friendly, accommodating and has a great sense of humour, not in any way offensive. He ensured we got what we ordered and need. He is a treasure in this restaurant and his going above and beyond should not go unnoticed. The food and ambiance are great. Definitely coming back and Michael is highly recommended to look for to friends who are interested to dine in this restaurant.

    The food was excellent, we loved the crab stuffed prawns. The inside window seats stared directly at the table on the other side, so it was a bit awkward, but if you looked beyond that, you could see the tug boats going by. The air conditioning was too high and colder inside than outside. I recommend having the ambient temperature be at least 18/19 degrees. Overall, we had a delicious meal and a lovely evening out.

    We were a party of 8 with 2 young kids and had made our reservation in advance. I appreciate that many restaurants are understaffed and our server was pleasant however there were many concerns with lack of service: it took 2 hours before food arrived, water was refilled maybe once, dirty appetizer plates were not cleared during the entire meal. A few of us ordered coffees with the desserts but these were not remembered until after all other desserts were eaten and were finally served with the bill. The entire ordeal took 3 hours. We were told that the delay was due to a very large group that had just put in their orders ahead of us. I could understand the wait if we were walk-ins but we had reserved in advance. The restaurant should not accept the number of bookings they did if they do not have the staff to accommodate them. It was disappointing that there were no apologies or acknowledgments of the ridiculously long time we were there and lack of service. Feedback on food: overall food is decent however salmon in the mixed seafood grill was a bit dry and the sauces for both pasta dishes could use some work (off/unbalanced flavour in the mixed seafood pasta and the sauce for the ravioli was heavy and the citrus listed in the description did not come through).

    As rated, the food was very good but our server was not. There was a group of 6 for a birthday dinner. Our server, Fabio, was not very attentive to our table and neglected to ask if anyone wanted a refill on drinks. Bread came to the table after appetizers were finished and the meal pretty much served. The birthday desert was brought after our bill was presented, oh, and the bill fiasco was crazy. first off, he brought one bill for the table after we requested separate bills per couple. It took three people over 15 minutes to get it figured out, even though we told our server who was on which bill. We have had this issue at another Boathouse restaurant (they took a very, very long time)and have not been back since and this location may be added to that list. Very unfortunate as the food was good but service is everything when it’s a special occasion.

    Lovely place to meet with friends. The view extraordinaire. Everything above average. I would most definitely recommend to others. I plan to visit again many times. I live at the QUAY I have decided I will never cook for guests again. THE BOATHOUSE is ideal to sit with your guests and enjoy their company instead of spending hours in the kitchen.

    Second Boathouse location, the second time it fails to impress me in any way. Also, main dish was brought when we were only halfway through the appetizers, and we weren't particularly slow or anything. Only exception - our server who was awesome! I wish I knew his name so I could give him a shoutout. And I remember the one at the White Rock location, back in January, was also really nice.

    Nothing more annoying then being one table away from a good server. An hour to get food. Eggs cooked wrong with no seasoning. Never going back
