The Dockside Restaurant offers superbly prepared classic dishes in a setting like no other. Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.



The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails. The award-winning patio catches sunlight from morning to late afternoon. Protected on three sides it’s an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek. Recent renovations have added fireplaces and casual seating areas to this Vancouver destination.

Beautiful view of burrard inlet from our table ......started with crab cakes which were crispy outside and full of crab inside....linguine with halibut and salmon was full of both in a delicious tomato-cream sauce and my husband's prime rib was perfectly cooked and tender. Good wine list with great savings on the end of the bin list of wines. Our server was friendly and helpful and even asked if we were on a time limit for a play) which we were. A very enjoyable time.

Very pleasant atmosphere to take my sister for her birthday lunch. Our waiter was very good and recommended a glass of Prosecco. We ended up talking and eating for two hours! I had the chicken and brie sandwich with a salad. It was excellent!

The food was great and the view was also awesome. However the service was very bad. We were celebrating our anniversary and felt as if we were a nuisance to our server. I am not sure if he was given too many tables but we constantly had to wait for him to check on us or ask him for things we needed. My husband had to wave him over at one point to ask to see the dessert menu (where he slightly hesitated to tell us to wait one more minute). When we were ready to order our desserts we had to bother a different server who took our order and cared for us instantly. Within seconds he put the order in and brought us spoons, even though he had his own tables.

Definitely not the best service we’ve had but the food is good if you get a good server.

Beautiful setting with awkward service. The server did know whether or not the kitchen could/couldn’t accommodate requests (ie substitute zucchini noodles for standard noodles due to gluten intolerance or on another dish put the seafood on the side so that the vegetarian could eat the pasta and someone else could enjoy the seafood). He didn’t say anything until our food was being served and the vegetarian didn’t have his dish while everyone else was being served their meal. That’s when he tells us they couldn’t put the seafood on the side and brought the menu for him to pick something else. That’s not acceptable.

It was a lovely meal. My son and I were taken to a table right at the window for our Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Further, it's not every restaurant that puts on a holiday turkey dinner, but this place did it so very well. We were both very pleased.

Avoid at all cost! My family and I came here during the Thanksgiving long weekend. We ordered crab cakes, fish and chips and eggs benedict. The crab cakes were hard, overcooked and bland. The eggs benedict were extremely salty. The fish and chips had a thick batter, you can taste the flour. Our water was never refilled. The brunch menu is extremely limited. No longer an upscale restaurant, now serving diner quality food.

Over the Summer, my girlfriend and I enjoyed many romantic evenings dining, sipping wine while relaxing together in the cozy outside couches under the white tents by the Water... thank you for that...

Now the Fall is here and on Sept 21st we dined inside for her birthday at a table for two by the windows overlooking the water, as we consider Dockside to be “OUR” restaurant for special occasions and drove from West Vancouver to celebrate. We weren’t disappointed.

Nathan our Server was outstanding and handled each request most professionally and with his great sense of humour added to ours, fun was served and made the evening most enjoyable.

All of the Servers at the appropriate time requested collected and brought the special dessert with sparkler table side and sang a fun and sincere Happy Birthday to my girlfriend.

Thanks to Nathan, the ambience and great food, we will be back to celebrate again.

Waiter was excellent. Food very good. Room beautiful.

Only caution, and one that would influence to whom and how many people I might recommend this resto to, assuming they can't get on the patio: the diningroom has very poor acoustics (hard surfaces) : even early in the evening when only 1/3 full, it was so loud it was difficult to include 4 people in the same conversation.

Lovely time at Dockside while on vacation in Vancouver from NYC. Perfect setting, overlooking the harbor. Generous portions, good service. No issues when we asked for a table closer to the water -- they initially offered us something farther away, in the tent (outside), because they felt it would be warmer on a very cool day (thoughtful). Happy to return next time we're in town.

I love having lunch here but dinner was a major disappointment. The menu itself is a mish mash of things that has a lot of gaps. The lunch burger is missing from the menu as well as the kids menu items lacks items with meat on it like a kids burger. Most items on the kids menu is carbs and chicken strips is too frequently the default cop out.

Back to the adult menu, I get it...you have a million dollar view and want to charge for it. I have no problems paying, but your mains are over priced for what you get. I ordered the prime rib and was offered medium or medium rare. What came was medium well to well done. The veggies were sadly limp from overcooking. Yorkshire pudding was an oversized mass that was not appealing to look at.

My wife ordered the mussels. The mussels were over cooked with an uninteresting broth. Bland almost.

The crab cakes were the best thing on the menu. Flavourful, full of crab, minimal filler cooked crisp with nice balanced sauce and fresh sprouts.

Service was slow and waiter got the kids order wrong. Asked for pizza, got chicken strips.

I will return for lunches as I love the view, beef dip and burger, but i won’t be returning for dinner. If you are going to charge those prices for dinner step it up even if you need to charge another $5 for it.

My childhood girlfriend and I just re-connected and it is at Dockside that we schedule our rendez-vous..Since I work on the Island I have frequently lunched at Dockside. We ask for the same waiter Laurie and have the same salad. It is a great venue.
