We went for their promotion, but their advertising wasn’t clear and I felt misled because it said Kid eats for $.99 but they didn’t mention about the regular price! They put all promotions at the same page! We didn’t know until we sat down and ordered! I felt disappointed it!
Great service and food. Been coming for many years. Richmond seems to be the most consistent in quality.
As usual great crab cakes! This is a consistently great seafood restaurant. They have a fairly good fresh seafood selection. Anytime I stay overnight in Richmond, The Boathouse is a must.
Nice place, suggested by nearby hotel shuttle driver and pleased with the recommendation. Food very good, I had the bacon cheese burger and the wife salmon burger and she said it was much better salmon that she’s had on the east coast. The chicken bites appetizer was also very good. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the warm early evening.
Seated quickly and had a very good waitress. Attentive and professional. Had the King Crab legs which were delicious. Had the best creme brûlée ever. Done perfectly.
When the bottle of wine we requested was not available, they offered a better bottle at a good discount. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!
dirty, not tasty, it looks like all the food warmed up in the microwave
Service was great. We are from Toronto area and visit our office in Richmond. We were served by Amanda last visit earlier this year and twice this week again with a group (5) from our meeting. She was very accommodating and worked with us to create a great dining experience.
Please thank Amanda again for us,
Todd from Toronto (CSA Group)
Happy hour first and early dinner after ~ foods are great and service always excellent, especially thanks for Heidi always remember us from Day 1 and the Manager Ed too, love this place !!
Our server was fantastic!
Our server was really lovely and accommodating. We had a large group and she made sure we had a beautiful spot on the patio with enough sun and shade. The food was great and came quickly. The drinks were delicious too.
Our server was absolutely fabulous! I had requested a special table for 10 and they truly delivered .. right in front of the windows with no one around us ... fet like private dining!
Service was great enjoyed ourselves very much I will definitely come back
Great food, good casual environment for any occasion.
Food was phenomenal, table of 8-10 and everyone really liked what they ordered.
Steak was cooked perfectly, fish was reportedly delicious, dessert was outstanding
Service was sub-par unfortunately....constantly waiting for server to re-fill drinks, didn't seem to be very attentive to our table or any others (understaffed?). One dropped entree caused us to wait a couple minutes while our food sat in front of us (also witnessed another server drop a dish....crazy to happen twice)
Food 11/10, Service 5/10
Would definitely return and recommend, hopefully service would improve another night
Great experience in terms of food and service. Just not enough parking space and the restaurant wasn’t even full.
The atmosphere and service was great. We were there for happy hour so the value for the food was great. The tuna taco was amazing.
On our recent trip to Vancouver we visited The Boathouse Richmond three times: two visits were outstanding; one was less so. As always, the menu is excellent: something for everyone - adults and children alike - and generally well prepared and presented. As you might expect, the difference lies in the service and our sincere thanks to both Gillian and Heidi for two wonderful meals: you went out of your way to make us feel welcome and paid attention to every detail. Sincere thanks to you both!
Boathouse is not like it used to be its unfortunate used to be my favorite place. Used to have a friendly server got asked for bread basket would not have to ask not to be rushed. The vibe is not there I come for the food that's always good.
Food and service were excellent. Be aware, aircraft taking off do create noise if you're sitting outside.
Great waiter!!! He gave us wonderful service all night
I was charged for an item that I didn’t even order. The menu descriptions were poorly written and not very kid friendly
Decent food, good service, bit on the expensive side, but not unexpected.
It was a bit difficult figuring out something my father could eat. He is a celiac, and most of their items had gluten in them, including the sauces. They were quite accommodating in helping figure out altering a few menu items, however it would be nice if they had a wider selection of gluten free options. The food was quite good.
Noisy and kinda tired looking. Oysters were really good but the trout was overcooked. Ahi was ok. Just average. Service was friendly and attentive though.
Took a clients here for Dinner, the location was great for the event we were attending in Richmond, the service was good but our server was a bit pushy and wanted to rush our orders, the food was good for those that did not order seafood those that did order seafood said it was overcooked. Overall i would return as it was a good restaurant and my meal was excellent (Lobster and Crab Ravioli).
The food quality is just so so. Price is expensive for that quality. Service is OK. Environment is pretty good.
Service was very good, food is getting to be boring. Menu has changed for the worse in the past few years.
Service was slow
Forgot the bread until we asked
Drink refills were slow
Bill sharing was hard
Communication was difficult
It was Father’s Day weekend and expected very busy, and would understand that service would not be very good. However, services is very poor and worse than what I can imagine and way below expectation. Our waiter not even come to ask “ how is everything”, I think it is the basic to follow after serve you the meal, unfortunately not even meet this minimum expect. After placed the order, our waiter did not come to my table at all until asked if we want dessert and the bill payment. Someone else brought us dishes and no one else come to talk to us in between.
Great Service, Good Food, Nice Ambiance.
I walked to this restaurant from a nearby hotel so didn’t experience the hassles listed in some reviews regarding finding the location.
Even with a window seat, the view is ho-hum but the ambiance is very pleasant.
Friendly competent staff.
Food was good and the service was good.
Requested to change table but were told that other tables were reserved. However by the time we left after 2.5 hours the “reserved” tables were still not occupied.
As a single diner, I sat in the lounge. The hostess assured me I could choose to sit at a 4-top, which was a nice touch (but reasonable, given the early dining time and empty room). The Okanagan field green salad was a good choice-- many different textures and flavors. I had the seafood pasta, which was good, but not outstanding. A craft old fashioned cocktail was well made, but the wine selections were middle of the road, which was a bit of a disappointment. Service was excellent, with prompt attention.
I often eat at the Boathouse at other locations and found the food at other locations to be better. The service was great though.
Dinner with the wife and no kids 👍🏻
We enjoy the Happy Hour very much and foods are excellent, services are great, special thanks for Heidi who always served us, my friends enjoy the restaurant with value price of foods and services ! And thanks for the Manager who always remember us too...
Steaks were perfectly grilled, salmon was wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable & very personable. Will definitely return!
Waited for 1.5 hr for all of our food!! we were hungry like hell....
My family and I have been to this location several times for different special occasions. This past visit was for Mother’s Day. It was a very busy evening, the restaurant was full of people and the staff were definitely doing their best to keep up. Once our party was sat, we were served water right away and then preempted that the kitchen was very busy so it would take a bit longer than usual for our food to be served.... totally understandable. When all our orders were given to the serve we patiently waited for refills on our water, bread for the table and for our appetizers to come. I had requested my toddler’s food first as she was hungry and all that was ordered was a bowl of plain rice. An hour and 15 mins later... the appetizers came.... 30 mins after that, I had to remind the server about the small bowl of rice. 2 hours after ordering we finally got our entrees. The food was ok, it served its purpose to nourish us. My ravioli was just a bit warm, not hot, the salmon was a bit dry, but overall the food was ok. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish my food because the server unfortunately accidentally dropped a utensil onto a water class as she was clearing someone’s plate, and it shattered in front of my 2 year old daughter’s face, sending shards onto the table, her clothes and her high chair. To say that I was panicked was an understatement. I cleared the shards and large pieces off of her lap and her hair and arms right away... but who knows if I was able to get it all. My biggest concern would be that shards of glass got in her mouth or her eyes. The server casually apologized a few times and went back and forth trying to clear the glass. As glass got everywhere, there was no way to predict where else the class could have gone. I couldn’t finish my ravioli, by husband didn’t finish his fries, and the high chair was still sprinkled with glass slivers. My appetite was lost, and my worry for my child and glass slivers was real.
Food came out room temperature and quality was average.
Disappointed but nice and friendly waitress
