We went for my partner's birthday. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. She brought him a slice of the mud pie with a candle when I told her it was his birthday.

As we were chatting with her at the end of the meal, she remembered seeing us there before. We were pleased that she remembered. It also mad us wonder if we go there to often. 🙂

Have never had a bad experience at the Port Moody location and we travel from North Vancouver to go there.

I was very disappointed in the filet that was served. I had dinner at Earls two days earlier and their filet was just outstanding. Overall the family enjoyed their meal and we had a good time.

International women’s day.
Food is excellent in taste, portions are a bit small and expensive. Lobster tail 5 stars for the cook.
We were not impressed with the service,
We asked for our drinks double and she has corrected us that they are 1,5 ounce already. (Tall glass) . We never had a waitress questioned us about drinks .
Overall, the atmosphere in boathouse Port Moody by the water is cozy we like it.

We live out of town, and as a treat we try to go to the Boathouse Restaurant in Port Moody, and normally we have a great meal. This time, not so good.

The appetizer we had was your calamari, which is normally fabulous. This time it wasn't cooked enough, it is normally a bit crispy, but Friday night it was close to rubbery. Cooked up barely.

Both of us had your steak and lobster special, the steak was good, but the lobster, we had trouble finding it in the shell, it was extremely small. I ordered the vegetables which were good, and my husband the potatoes (4 little ones), it wouldn't have hurt to have put both on the plates.

Our granddaughter had your children's burgers and they were good.

This wasn't up to your normal standard, sadly.

Regards
Dawn

the bill at the end was a way higher that I though it should be, Internet price for steak and lobster, 35.00 plus 11:00 for a glass of wine, = $46:00 coffee, ? Steak was good but, very small, lobster was not cooked enough, too soft and rare. total bill, with tip $9.20 too expensive.

The food was good but it is very loud, almost too loud to talk with your companion. The value was ok but I wouldn't pay these prices for average food again.

It was my friend’s birthday but we had to remind them twice about the free dessert for her. We ordered cappuccino to go with the dessert but it didn’t come. Again we had to remind the server and she obviously forgot about it. The food was good although portion could be bigger.

We have had better experiences at this location before. This time the service was not very good. We waited about 10 min or so before anyone even asked for our drink order. We maybe saw our server twice after that. Food came out fast which was good. But the servings were small. We also were sat by the kitchen which wasnt the best spot.

I am not happy about your parking as I’m a handicap and I had to drive around for a while and then sit outside in my car to wait for a parking spot while my wife was inside waiting for me.

You really need to clean the cobwebs from the patio lights! We were there to celebrate our engagement. We appreciated the free dessert but perhaps the server should have acknowledged that it was free and why?

The quality of the food does not match the price. I’ll spend a lot of money on food if it’s a quality meal, and good service. It took us and hour To get meal. We use go to this boat house years ago all the time, and it has gone down hill, it is now a 3 star restaurant.

Prior to reserving at the Boathouse, I reviewed the menu extensively with my dietician. I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I also have lactose intolerance and celiac disease. My dietician and I researched restaurants I could eat at and found one menu option I could have at the boathouse if I replaced the quinoa with veggies. I made the reservation and was excited I was going to be able to enjoy the Boathouse on Valentine’s Day. That day, I went I got my hair done, and bought a pretty dress for the occasion. When we arrived I was thrilled to see we had a window seat but then I was handed a different menu. I was shocked. It wasn’t at all the menu my dietician and I perused a few weeks ago. I ask the person who seated me if at all possible I could please order the one dish I could eat. She said she could ask the manager. When the manager came to my table he told us, no. That the menu was a preset for Valentine’s Day and he was not willing to accommodate me in any way. I explained my type 2 diabetes and how restricted my diet was and how I really wanted to eat there. He again said “no”. I was super upset. I was embarrassed and felt humiliated as we had to get up and leave. I sat at the front waiting area for my husband to bring the car around as there was no parking anywhere close and I sat there and just cried. I was so upset. So upset, I cried the whole way home. The Boathouse ruined my Valentines Day and the manager unwilling to offer me anything but a “no” is not how any restaurant should treat people. I was visibly upset and the manager didn’t show any compassion for me. I am a human being. I will never return and will never recommend the boathouse ever again.

Went for my husbands birthday.
Our first waitress was pleasant, we ordered a drink each. She came back with my husbands and let me know they had sold a lot of bellinis that day and the machine needed time to make the slush. She suggested a sangria instead which was delicious.

We ordered two appies, the sweet chilli chicken and the coconut prawns.

The coconut prawns were over done and taste identical to Costco’s frozen option.
The sweet chilli chicken smelt off. It has a smoke/ propane taste to it.

While waiting for our dinner we had no one offer to top up our empty waters and had a waitress bring us another tables steak dinner, we corrected her and she was embarrassed she was at the wrong table- no problem.

My husband ordered the Atlantic lobster tail dinner and made sure to ask for extra butter. When our dinners came, a third waitress served us, quickly out our dinners down and walked away without a word. My husbands dinner had no butter.

We finally flagged down ANOTHER waiter and asked for butter. Which took another 10 minutes.

The lobster dinner-
The meat was not presented on top of the shell, and were small, about two inches in length. It smelt old and took two bites to finish. It was served on a bed of undercooked rice, with a side of an overcooked large carrot and poorly sliced undercooked zucchini.

The Tuna Poke Bowl-
The rice was overcooked mush. The bowl was average, nothing you couldn’t get at the mall. A few pieces of the tuna were very tough and had to be spat out.

$142.00 later We were very disappointed and won’t be returning. 2/10.

We had to send our food back twice because it was under cooked. We were served cold steaks and raw prawns. We ended up not eating anything. The staff was lovely but we definitely will not be returning.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Boathouse. Five of us went for a family birthday. It was also during Dineout so two of us selected from the Dineout menu. Food was all absolutely delicious plus the presentation was great! Portion sizes were also good plus the free bread for an appetizer was great. The host and our server were very friendly and welcoming. Food was served in a very timely manner with the different courses being brought out at appropriate times. The restaurant itself is beautiful with lots of timber construction and lots of windows which would probably provide a great view if it wasn't night time. Overall, the food here is a little more on the expensive side, but the quality and experience is worth it!

We enjoyed a lovely time celebrating a friend's birthday. The service was great and we all enjoyed our food. Sitting in the patio area provided a lovely view.

This has always been our go-to place however I did notice the prices are beginning to sneak up.

We love the Boathouse and this dinner was as good. It was our daughter's 13th birthday and she wanted crabs; so we decided to take her to the Boathouse as they have the best and we weren't disappointed.
Our meal was great and they even brought her a complimentary desert with a candle which was very sweet! I highly recommend this place :-)
