For the quality of food that was served, it was a bit disappointing and overpriced. The service was slow especially for the meals arriving and the bill coming to the table.

Couldn't get a 530 res. Yet at 530 over a dozen tables empty. Reservation was made for anniversary and a window table, there was no mention and had to ask for a window table when on site. Too many screaming kids ruined the experience for us. The food and service was great.

We found the prices extremely high for the quality of the food. Our waitress did her best to sell the place as a high end culinary experience but unfortunately this did not materialise.
High prices seemed to be based solely on location but not the entire dining experience.
For 3 people a bill of more than $300 (including a bottle of wine) for 2 starters, 3 mains & 1 desert is in my opinion way over the top for the food served

Everything was great with the exception of the sides with the king crab. They were so bland we didn’t eat them. The starters and cocktails were absolutely delicious though and the staff were all very friendly. Definitely recommend it.

We are a group of ladies who have known each other since kindergarten.... so 62 years. We get together when I come to town from Calgary. We haven’t been to the Boathouse for years but decided to do a dinner instead of lunch and chose the Boathouse. We had The BEST server EVER, Jody. She was excellent and you better hang on to her.... kind, patient, fun , attentive!!!!!! She made our dinner all that more enjoyable! Thanks Jody for the amazing service and thanks Boathouse for the great dinner! We will be back!!!

The food took over an hour to get to the table after ordering. We watched people who ordered after us receive their meals, pay and leave before we had ours.

We love the Boathouse restaurants and have been to almost every location and they all have the same great atmosphere. I reserved a table for our 9th anniversary and we luckily got a table by the window and our server was more than attentive. The food was as always, phenomenal. Great job again!

We love this restaurant, the service wasn’t as stellar as usual, little touches we are used to, for example: my husband was brought a piece of free birthday cake, nice touch we’ve always liked. But typically he server would come by and tell us and offer dessert to the other person, coffee etc. Cake arrived, I called after the server and said I’d like to order too. She was very friendly, maybe just inexperienced but good training makes a great restaurant. See you next time!

We ordered substantial appetizers and our maim meal was delivered before we were even halfway through the appetizers. Rather unappetizing and our food got cold as a result. Drinks were good as was the atmosphere.

Beautiful restaurant, great atmosphere. Food was good but I felt it was overpriced. Dining room was very loud, hard to hear family & friends talking. Nice dinner overall. I will come back again. The two waiters we had were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable on the different dishes prepared.

The only negative was that the hostess seated beside my table, a woman with two young boys who were misbehaving, and being ignored by the woman, who was too busy on her iphone to discipline her boys. I found this very annoying and took away from my and my friends enjoyment of our Boathouse experience. The restaurant was nearly empty, so not sure why this annoying family was seated right next to us. They could have been placed or moved away from us. Otherwise, our server was very pleasant and attended to our needs in a friendly, respectful and timely manner. Thankyou.

We found the food and service was quite good however we have been to the Boathouse on numerous occasions and I can't remember it being so crowded and noisy. My husband and I were there to celebrate a special occasion however it was very difficult to have a nice conversation due to the noise level.

We have come to the boathouse 3 times in the past month!
The food is great but have had awful service everytime we have gone.
We find the service is very slow and the servers to not come back to the table as often to refill waters or ask for more drinks!
It took awhile to get our food out also!
We enjoy coming to the boathouse just wish the service was better!

Good location with a nice view. Menu is typical west coast casual with a good range of seafood. The four of us had 3 courses each and we were happy with every dish. Seafood was nicely cooked. Hot dishes were served hot. The chef could be a little more adventurous, but we find this a good place to go for fresh ingredients and for consistently good taste and service.

This is not the first time that we have had issues with this Boathouse location.
As usual, the main course was very enjoyable. However, no complimentary bread was offered prior to dinner and we didn't even get offered a second cup of coffee (all this has happened before).
The diners at surrounding tables all were offered bread prior to the main dinner.
Our experience with this restaurant is that if you are not ordering alcohol, your priority for further
good service is practically non existent. Twice burned here ---- that's enough!

Firstly I made reservations for 4pm and was surprised that they placed us in the area that you did not receive the happy hour pricing. When we asked our waitress she said she would see what she could do. It took her sometime to come back but she finally said yes they would honor the price. It was quite awhile for her to come back and see us at our table. In fact she told us she was off shift and wanted to let us know that a new server would be helping us. In the meantime we asked if we could order and she said fine but didn't seem to happy about it (I guess she was supposed to be off in that moment). She took our order and the next server brought our food, we had to wave her over to get more bread to order more drinks and then when she was cleaning up she dropped cutlery on my blue silk jacket that I was wearing, she didn't seem to concerned but said she would bring me soda and a damp rag. She did just that, never did she see if the stain had come out or even comp my meal. It was when I was leaving that I saw Derrick Wan the General Manager and I told him about my jacket. He did say to take it to a dry cleaners to try and remove the stain and at this point I am waiting to pick it up to let him know if it was able to come clean. He was very prompt and helpful but I was very unhappy with both of our servers that day serving the 3 other friends that I was with. It is surprising for me that the waitress who dropped the cutlery on me just dropped off the soda water and made no attempt to help or see if it came clean. Super disappointing - I get it accidents happen but follow up would have expected, one would think. I would still go back to Port Moody but I would definately speak my mind during my meal.

The server never asked us if we wanted coffee or tea. As well, we were not asked if we wanted a dessert. I had booked in advanced and asked for a window table as we were celebrating my mom's 93rd birthday. When we got to the restaurant, we were told there were no available tables that would seat 5 people. This was not true as a table was being cleared as we went into the main room.

Thank you for a lovely experience. We live on the NOrth Shore and brought my 93 year old mother for brunch. She loved it and our server was excellent. Your kitchen accommodated a split eggs bene for my mother and myself as she has a limited appetite which we really appreciated. We will certainly recommend your restaurant and will be back.

We had the crab and steaks and it was wonderful. The only complaint I would have is that we did not get served bread at the table, which I found very strange. But otherwise, it was amazing.
