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.

A fun staycation in the city, we had a delicious meal and drinks....the staff made me a twist on a French 75, and we had a great evening, COVID not withstanding!

Best patio in Vancouver. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. What is not to love dining on a fabulous patio with a beautiful view of Vancouver and False Creek waterway. The best of Granville Island.

Really enjoyed the food & ambience. Our waiter was delightful & attentive. Sanitation measures due to covid were impressive. Only complaint was it was a bit noisy for quiet intimate conversation. Had the weather been better we would have preferred to eat outside where it would be hopefully quieter.

Don’t like music as we are hard of hearing. Loud discordant music spoils the experience even more. Had a lovely waitress who I asked to turn off or at least down. It eventually was turned off so we were grateful. Otherwise great

I am always delighted to visit Dockside. The staff are very friendly and capable.
The restaurant has adjusted well to the new Covid regulations and have made
the ambience as pleasant as is possible given the restrictions. I especially appreciate the
welcoming atmosphere, excellent food and superior staff.

The receptionist, Erin was rude and terrible. She gave us an attitude as soon as we came in. No restaurant should hire this receptionist. She was terrible. Food was horrible. The baby back ribs tasted like it came from a grocery store. Service was poor. Food was poor quality. The receptionist totally ruined our evening. She argued with us and raised her voice. Terrible! Because of her, we are never coming back to this restaurant.

Not the most inspiring veal cutlet I ever had.
Too much breading overcooked meat and topped with a flimsy salad was not very inspiring! Good try for a post pandemic menu.
Stick to the fish and seafood, if fresh.
A tad noisy, yet still a very nice location.

The waterfront view and peaceful surroundings make this restaurant a perfect choice for a special occasion or simply a nice escape within the city. The food is of high quality, the hostesses were very friendly and welcoming, and we felt recharged from the relaxing ambiance.

Your patio is excellent, very conducive to spacing diners. Service was efficient and friendly. I did not know that you have won awards for the best patio in Vancouver. I’ve passed on to several people how great it is and will definitely come back. I would suggest extending your happy hour to 5:30 or 6pm. Really wanted to try your pizza but was too late.
Thanks.

Amazing patio, view and great staff.
Appies were great but all main dishes lacking, esp for price. Mains included meat or fish and cold salad only ( although good) they really need to add a warm carb or veggie with the mains.

Jules was a great server - I really liked his approach to the table; friendly and joking manner, his knowledge and helpfulness. It was lovely to be on the patio overlooking the water and mountains in early June - first time out for a sit-down meal after Covid-19, so we were all very happy to be out together visiting face to face again. We shared the Mezze appetizer and that was very nice start. I had a modest portion of halibut with an excellent sauce. Two others had the Butchers Daily Cut - steak, nicely baked potatoes and veggies and a pepper sauce which they enjoyed - a hardy helping. The final dish was a gluten free risotto, very tasty. I certainly recommend the experience and the food on a warm evening especially on the patio.

We were at the restaurant for lunch the day after it reopened with new Covid-19 protocols.

All I can say is well done team!

The protocols were spot on and adhered to by staff - we felt safe and it was excellent to see the staff buy-in and support of the new processes.

The view of the water was fantastic. The food was, as always, excellent and service was stellar. Laurie was our server and he was attentive and ensured that we were made aware of why things were being done the way they were and what the new government guidelines were and how management was implementing the compliance procedures.

We will be back soon - it is a pleasure to support businesses and staff that are really trying to move forward safely in the new Covid reality!

Non existent management. Had a travel zoo voucher where the expiry date had been extended due to covid- the voucher showed the new expiry date; however there was no management that evening to address the issue. They refused to honor the voucher for its promotional value and it is still being disputed

Food and view were definitely great. Our server was very nice, however reception was not very accommodating. Also when we reminded them that they do not wear mask under their shield while they were standing and talking next to us, they sent the manager to talk to us. The response was they have complied with city hall health department and they have decided they won't wear mask because the manager claimed she has hearing problems and can't hear sound under the mask. She said customers should realize that there are risks dining out in a restaurant, however they have made sure their workers are well protected by wearing shield, which is most important to them. She could have accepted our suggestion for future consideration and discussion to make sure customer safety is as important.
