Our service started out very good, but faded as the dinner progressed, restaurant got busy and our server was rushed off her feet. The food was good but some of the servings were very small for the price. We were celebrating 4 family members birthdays and they each got a dessert on the house, very nice surprise. They shared as our server was too busy to see if anyone else in the group wanted dessert or coffees. Will go back and try again.

It was very nice for the restaurant to give us a slice of cake for free for our occasion. The portion of the food could be more or the dish could be more inventive. The ambience and service were great.

The food was great, but the service was terrible. The waitress was not personable, she did not go out of her way to tell us the specials (sandbox), she didn't ask if we wanted more drinks, it felt like we had to beg for service.

Service needs improvement, it's not a cafeteria!! Dumping(emptying) out a bottle of wine in one fell swoop not a class act. Where did they learn their skill. Overall meals were enjoyed, must agree becoming expensive.

The food was fine but underwhelming, especially for the price. My mimosa was clearly not fresh orange juice and the tomatoes on my benny were about as tasteless as tomato can be. I won't be back as it is just not worth the money.

Fantastic service and excellent space accommodating our group of eleven. Parking was a bit challenging as it was a sunny Friday and parking for the restaurant isn't restricted from parking for the nearby park. In the end, everyone parked, everyone was well-fed, and the restaurant was exceptional at handling the cake we brought in, providing plates, candles, and serving utensils without an upcharge or additional gratuity. Would absolutely come back and recommend to anyone else wanting an amazing harbourside event with an unbeatable view.

Friendly and efficient service in a terrific setting. Jody our server was absolutely great! Seafood chowder was delicious. Smashed potatoes were inspirational. The sunset over the mountain was an absolutely perfect part of our anniversary dinner. We will definitely come back.

Our daughter had a sport tournament nearby and we decided to try this restaurant. We have been to other Boathouse restaurants before but not to the Port Moody location. There is a sailing/kayak club beside the restaurant and being the weekend, there was a lot of people circling trying to find parking at the lot in front of the restaurant. On a nice weekend, it may be a challenge to find a spot quickly.

The restaurant however was only 40% full, with most people preferring to sit on the patio. We preferred being inside with more shade and able to enjoy the high ceilings and decor, which made it feel more like a boathouse than the Kits location. The views from the restaurant was also enjoyable, and probably even better from the patio.

Food menu and food quality is on par with its other locations that offers good variety, large portions at reasonable prices. The kids menu items were also a great value. We would come back to this restaurant the next time we are in Port Moody.

Great location for a walk before or after dinner. Good food and thums up for the service, good team work. A free dessert for the birthday boy was a nice touch and an unexpected surprise.

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.

We have been to this Boathouse location several times for work personal celebrations, and have had mixed reviews. This was the best service yet! We were celebrating my sister's 50th birthday recently, and all the dishes were excellent except my son's burger, which was dry and burnt. He ate only a few bites of it. When we told our waitress at the end, she took the initiative to mention that to the manager and they not only gave the birthday girl her free dessert, they also did not charge us for the burger and gave us a couple of extra free desserts. That was classy. Thank you.

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.

Service was great. Location is beautiful, free parking. The food was subpar. Crab over cooked ($60 charge). Seafood appetizer plate:calamari undercooked, crab dip was super runny, prawns undercooked.

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!

We go to this location every year on my birthday because I get a $25 with my Landry’s card. The food is always decent, but this time it was absolutely outstanding. So delicious and fresh, best ever
