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 seasonal patio (patio closed October to March) catches sunlight from morning to afternoon and is an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek.

Whether dining inside or outside the views are stunning!

    Azalea was our server, she was fine, not as attentive as should be the norm. Food was okay. Caesar salad, there was an herb or spice in it I didn’t care for, skillet rolls also just okay, although apparently they’re a favorite of diners, and pork bellies were good. In all honesty I probably wouldn’t return. Atmosphere is great! But when you want a good meal that is important also. Nothing special in my opinion.

    We sat outside . The location is beautiful but everything else was hit and miss. The 8$ basket of four buns was stale . I would have sent it back but our server was nowhere to be seen . The arugula salad was very good, asparagus amazing, oysters ordinary, halibut truly excellent, but the paella had been sitting under the heat lamp too long , resulting in dried out clams and mushy rice . Would I go back? Yes , because it’s a wonderful location .

    Service was good. Room ambience was terrible. Because of the proximity of large parties all around us, I could not hear the person across from my table when they spoke to me. Some kind of noise dampening, perhaps acoustic tiles on the wall, would be appreciated.

    Ambiance was decent. Service was very slow. Food was lacking presentation and portion sizes were lacking. Plates were not cleared. Dessert not offered. There for a birthday. There was no acknowledgement of it. Just really blah. Much better places to go in the city. Won’t be back.

    This was the first time I tried the new menu--been coming here for many years. The food was fabulous--all four of us raved about it. Our server was particularly wonderful. She painted a great picture of the food in response to our questions, which made it easy to choose menu items that had been well described!

    We had a lovely brunch at the Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island. The setting is beautiful as it looks out onto False Creek. There were options for everyone on the menu and the portions were sized well. Even though parking can be tricky, especially on a busy weekend, it's worth it to spend some time wandering around Granvilled Island before or after your visit to Dockside.

    I ordered the waffles - and they were gooey inside - not good. I asked to have them remade so they were not gooey and they said that is how they make them! yuck. I ended up having fruit salad since my husband got his eggs benny already . Those were great! I should have gotten the bennys ! oh well.

    We chose Dockside for our 5 year anniversary dinner as neither of us had ever been in 50 combined years of living in the Vancouver area. We were not disappointed. Well received by the hosts, looked after dutifully by one experienced and one newer staff member, we never felt like the staff was intrusive. We ordered far too much food for two: two appies, two "From the Garden", one share plate, and two Pasta/grill dishes. We could easily have ordered half and been happy with the portion size. Each food item had a distinct taste profile and was sufficiently different from each other to make the tasting worthwhile. The mains were the paella and a rabbit ragu. The ragu was a tad on the salty side, while strangely, we felt the paella lacking in salt. The paella was chock full of seafood, but was light on rice. It was okay for us as we had so many lead in dishes, but might be disappointing for someone expecting a full-size dish. We tried the Project B Sauvignon Blanc, and give it a hearty thumbs up. With a fruity palate, it stood up to all of the dishes, but was slightly overpowered by the squid appetizer. Dessert was a shared lemon tart, and while not done in my usual and traditional manner, it was still a visual and gustatory delight paired with a decaf cappuccino. The orange compote topping was a surprisingly good flavour match. We will go back when the weather allows for a comfortable dinner on the well-situated patio. Hopefully it doesn't take another 25 years.

    My dish was supposed to have prawns but instead I got largish shrimp. Rice was mushy and overall the entree was pretty bland. Have had better food experiences there on several occasions so maybe it was the new menu. Service and ambiance were good.
