    The boathouse went downhill for quite a few years, but has improved, with regards to food quality & service. My hubby and I attended recently, and it was disappointing. The food was pretty good, particularly the miso halibut, but service was not ideal. We were forgotten about quite a few times, and I had to request one of the hosts grab our bill. When the server returned with the check, she also brought with her a rude attitude & tone. This was our first night out since having our baby, so it put a bit of a damper on the evening. Also, not entirely relevant, but we were not given the warm bread/butter - perhaps guests need to request this now? We likely won’t return.

    The menu has been updated. There seem to be fewer items, but the meal we had was very good. I think there is new management, but same owner. There are small changes, such as no longer getting a napkin, but a serviette instead. Previously one would get bread with meal, not so now, at least for lunch.

    Always a nice visit to the Boathouse but this is the 5th time in a row with a reservation that we dont get a window seat. Instead a 2-seater with 2 people about 12" beside us on the bottom level. Just not private. Food was good except the clamari whcih had more random deep fried veggies than squid. Service was fantasic by Keith though!

    We went for our anniversary. We weee 10min early for our 730 reso Took 20min to be seated after that. Once seated we were greeted pretty quick. Ordered our drinks. When delivered we ordered from the “dine out vancouver” 3 course menu. 30 min later we received our mains. No appies or bread. 10 min later we get our appies. ..wtf Enjoyed our rushed meal. Desert arrives 20min later and what we ordered was not available but subed something else. Our server was awesome. But the rest of it was very disappointing. And completely messed up. No reason was given Not sure if we will come back

    We came in for the dine out vancouver specials the calamari appetizer was a joke small Itty bitty pieces that although seasoned nicely were tiny the accoutrements on the plate were larger then the calamari pieces themselves and they seemed overcooked when asked for tzakiki as a side instead of the spicy aoili it comes with I was offered tarter sauce come on now our server neglected to enter my change into the computer so when the order came the calamari was drenched in spicy sauce and had to be sent back while all of the others enjoyed their appetizers so disappointing other then that the food was lovely we all enjoyed the steak and lobster Thermador and we all would highly recommend it the desert was also lovely our server was more attentive to those other tables who probably weren't there for the specials and we likely spending more money he was the largest disappointment of the evening to be honest the restaurant was lovely the views were amazing we were right up next to the windows just maybe they could use better servers overall a pleasant experience

    Hostess did not set the tone for the meal At all/ she looked like she would rather have a root canal than be there - didn’t tell Our server about us… and we waited a long time at our table ( with a reservation ) BUT once the server arrived the service improved significantly. Great meal and service. The dine out menu was the star - it was enjoyed with a seafood tower, cocktails and yummy desserts -

    It was just an amazing experience from the hostess who took us to our table, the waiter (David) absolutely wonderful, very pleasant and kind. David is the optimal professional who handled our evening with grace and perfect timing, truly the best waiter we have ever experienced. The food was 20 out of 10, it was the single best meal we have eaten. It was mouth watering, made our taste buds dance, a world-class feat of cooking, bravo, bravo to the chef, WOW! What a meal! Now the meal, I had the Miso Crusted Halibut, and my beautiful wife had Tenderloin Filet. Both these dishes were out of this world. The Halibut was cooked to perfection, hot, very tender, flaky, and melt in your mouth, add the crusted miso, and it is WOW! My wife's filet was thick, juicy, hot, and melts in your mouth taste, WOW! We can not recommend it any higher. This is the restaurant that is world-class and offers professionalism unparalleled, and the food is absolutely fantastic! Well done, Boathouse, very well done indeed.

    Three of us dined during the lunch service Thursday January 25th. The server was amazing, very attentive, she could make a decision to accommodate a request - a dish no longer on the menu & provided a complimentary dessert for my mother in law who was celebrating her birthday. Not only did the server wait on our table she was the hostess, bartender, food runner and probably cleared the tables. Management, you need to give this employee a raise!!! The food was delicious, & really good fries!

    The Boathouse has been a place that our family have visited over 30 years. The food and service were amazing. It was rather cold and the music was loud and terrible. They played the same Frank Sinatra - songs over and over again. Even my daughter who is in her 20’s commented. It would be nice to have music from every decade. There are amazing musicians that would make the festive season more amazing. I think that would fit majority of your demographic 40’s and above.. The food and service are there. Please change up the music and keep the heat on.. Thank you!

    Did not get my first choice from the menu, the mussels. The second dish ordered was the coconut cod but the dish has it has changed since I last ordered it… no evidence of coconut and too spicy. Strike two! Our server was so apologetic and brought me mashed potatoes and grilled veg (grilled veg was great - potatoes so-so) to go with the cod. Very disappointing evening meal. The cauliflower kale salad was the highlight of the evening.

    We had fish and chips, which was good, but the french fries were not good. They are skinny and rather tasteless. A heftier fry with perhaps some skin on it would be much more appetising esp. since the cost is $27.00. Cold slaw was good. And the server, Amanda, was excellent! After I'd ordered she returned to our table and said the restaurant had run out of tartar sauce, which is weird since it specializes in seafood. I told her I'd order something else and she went to get a menu for me. She returned quickly and said the chef said he would mix up a new batch of tartar sauce immediately. I was very happy about that.
