11th Wedding Anniversary....food was delicious, service was excellence!!
We were there for our 39th anniversary this day, and we haven't tried this restaurant in a long time. It was an enjoyable experience. Our server did a very good job and was friendly and accommodating. She did suggest a drink for my husband because he liked a specific type of drink with pineapple and rum. We did get a complimentary piece of cake for dessert. Very nice, we will return again.
I love this place. My hubby, and I come a few times a year. However this was the second time we were seated by the kitchen. I don't like that seating. It's high traffic, and very noisy. Otherwise I look forward to coming again.
Open Table emailed asking for a review, other wise I wouldn't bother. 3 out of 4 meals were good. My first time at this location. Inexperienced server mixed up my order. Manager came by and offered to rush the missing lobster over. Only problem was it wasn't cooked. Arg... So I didn't get lobster for lobster fest. Everyone was already finished eating when it arrived and it was my friends birthday so I didn't say anything to server, but hopefully they looked at the uneaten greyish mushy tail and said something to the manager. The positive was the free desert for birthday person. Always welcome!
Please arrange a table with a good view,thx
Have been here many time and enjoy it as much as I did on our first visit.
The food was outstanding although, the steaks were surprisingly small. The Whisky sour was spectacular. Stay away from the Espresso it's dreadful. Service was discreate and attentive and made for a great dining experience.
Food not bad, view is very good, service is very good.
Great service in a big space. Nice views and user friendly menu. Decor is a bit dated but it's not pretentious at least.
Food was good if not spectacular.
Had a couple friends visiting from NY and they wanted to taste Pacific Ocean seafood. We took the QtoQ ferry across from Queensborough which was so convenient. Had a lovely table with views of the water. Our server (Shawn) was phonomemal and the food was outstanding. A perfect evening.
Excellent customer service and food. Beautiful view.
We have been coming to this Boathouse for many years. We were very disappointed this time. Usually the service is very good but we found it somewhat lacking and not very professional. The food was not up to the quality that was expected given the prices charged. We were given 2 buns to start that were hard as rocks and not really eatable
They did bring 2 more buns after we complained which were just ok. Not at all like what was served in the past. Our main meal was just ok and nothing special. At the start of our evening we ordered a bottle of wine. When it arrived it was the wrong wine. During our main course the waitress actually came by and scooped our side plates away which we were still using to put our shell fish remains on. It is a shame that this restaurant appears to be going downhill in quality and service. We likely will try other restaurants for our next special occasion.
Quality of the food was good, but we had to wait quite a long time for our meal.
The boathouse is a staple in New Westminster and I have been going for over 30 years, since I was a kid. I feel like quality has declined but maybe my expectations have just increased. Food is ok but given all the options in Vancouver seems subpar. View is good and service is average. We wanted a pitcher of sangria but despite offering glasses of sangria no one was willing to offer making us a pitcher. Not a great desire to please customers.
Over cooked vegetables, bland fish and expensive. I’d equate to cafeteria or hospital food.
Service was slow, but if the food was better, it might have been worth it, but not for the price.
Pricey. Can't afford to come much or often. Food was not so exceptional
Meals and service were second to none, I was very impressed, but it came with a steep price. I just can't do this too often.
Although the food was good, we waited an hour for our main meals.
nice table inside by the window so we had the best of both inside and out. Our server was very good
we had the firecracker shrimp as an appy & another server delivered with the garlic bread all soggy in the sauce. we mentioned to our server Jackson & he quickly replaced with a new garlic bread. sometimes its the little things that make the difference. dinner was very good. Ask to sit in Jackson's section, he will take good care of you & most importantly he is very genuine and a nice guy! he's an asset to the Boathouse for sure! = ) thanks
When I reserved the table, I told the staff the dinner was for my mom’s birthday and hope they can get a dessert to write happy birthday or maybe a candle on the dessert, he told me he would make a note to my reservation. And when we were having our dinner and made our order, I told my server it’s my mom’s birthday and hope she can get her a candle on her dessert or something. However, when my mom’s dessert came, there’s no candle or any writing of happy birthday on the dessert, which I was kind of disappointed. I am not sure if I will go to new west boathouse again for any special occasion. I hope your restaurant can take this comment and reflect to your staffs so it will not happen to other customers in your restaurant again.
I ordered salmon which was over cooked and dry. But they changed to crab stuffed shrimps which was good. Very quiet place with few people only. Not worth the price.
Great service. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable and friendly. Great food and view. Enjoyed our meal. Will come again.
Birthday dinner. Everything was great and they brought me a birthday dessert!
Quick service. Good food and presentation
Another delicious family dinner...love the location
We went for father's day brunch - 3 of us and we had a reservation for 10:30 am. The servers were very attentive however the food took a very long time. We arrived at 10:30 and ordered our meals and drinks at the same time. Food did not arrive until more than 30 minutes later. The server said they were very busy and that is why there was a delay, however, the restaurant wasn't very full at all. I think they just didn't have enough staff which is unfortunate.
Food was great! Many choices available. Setting on the river beautiful.
When we arrived i was surprised that there was no reservation recorded for my party. Used open table on line. Fortunately, we were able to get seating by the window without any further problems. Service was adequate. Food was great.
The food was outstanding and the service was top notch. We had a get together with friends who were in town from out of country, and we had a wonderful time.
We ordered tuna in wonton skin. DELICIOUS! Entree came 1 hr later. Not busy tat night so who knows. They gav us discount on our bill. Would recommend tis pl to others.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Was an amazing meal. Would recommend to anyone to check it out. Not that busy on a Saturday night
It was great
The first time my husband had halibut here, it was delicious and absolutely fresh, noticeably less fresh this time, unfortunately.
Our server made the experience
He was great!
I am very happy with the gentlemen served us on that night , Jackson.
Was seated in a timely fashion. Waitress took drink order and returned about 15 min later. Asked questions regarding menu. She said she didn’t know. Ordered meals . Salad was delivered to table - had to ask for bread. When meal came she asked how it was and didn’t return. Another server cleared our table as she saw we were finished. At that point a management person stepped in and handled our table. We were celebrating a birthday and mother’s day. Our celebration was ruined.
Mother’s Day brunch buffet. Desserts where quite basic
Typical buffet with nothing to spectacular or original.
Worst reservation & restaurant ever!. Made reservation like a week in advance to celebrate Mother's day and our Wedding Anniversary for lunch. Well nobody ever mentioned to us that the only option was buffette not a la carte until we arrived to the restaurant. Having a Daughter allergic to peannuts and with no choice but to order an expensive buffette and the food was worst!!!. When the check arrived we decided to complain why we weren't told before (during reservation and or when they phoned me to confirm) that it was buffette. Thanks to Kim (the server that brought us the check). She talked to the Manager and she managed to reduce significantly our bill.
Honestly this experience was the worst ever I had in a restaurant.
