Regional American (Northwest)
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!

    We gave it a four because even with the main course items, it was still a little small. Everything else was perfect. Our waiter was super helpful and very nice. The ambience of the whole restaurant was worth it in our opinion.

    We went for a birthday dinner. Everyone was so nice and they made my mom feel special about her birthday! The food was so fresh and yummy. I had the paella and it was very filling! Everyone was satisfied with their meal and would come back again!! They also gave us a free dessert for my moms birthday :) I would definitely recommend sitting outside in the patio if possible! I loved how it was literally dockside

    I had the NY steak and it was really good. The patio was awesome, so glad we got to sit out there! Service was not good and we waited along time for drinks, water, cutlery. We would have stayed for more drinks and dessert but our reservation was up before we could get that far.

    Overall it was a nice meal. Drinks were quite good, food was above average although whomever made the Paella should give the recipe a second look. It was overly tomatoey and smelled weirdly fishy. We found ourselves looking around for our server more than once, but not for too long. We'll come back. The patio and view were lovely.

    Loved the cool venue, so refreshing, food fantastic. Our poor waiter had too many people to look after, and the music was really unpalatable. Soft jazz would've been perfect. Otherwise such a perfect place on a hot night.

    Great service. Checked on in timely manner. Our server Erin was great. I asked her to recommend me her favourites and she took time to go through the entire menu and explained each dish amazingly. Food was good. Scallop was delicious, the cheese was bit on the saltier side (some may love that! Not for me) and spaghetti was good.

    I love the Dockside patio - great feel and view, and the food and service are great. But I won't go back until they remove the blaring, jarring live music. Last night it was bad classic rock sung to an overly-mic'd steel string acoustic that drowned out conversation. Droning Red Hot Chili Peppers - really? I had a guest from out of town and we were both horrified. This has always been one of the best patios in Vancouver, but Dockside isn't cheap and I would not take guests there again until assured the music has been removed. That's one patio that really does not need music - the view, the passing boats, the birds - it was always lively and perfect without music, especially amplified music. I'm a music lover but here it's not needed. So disappointed.

    Had a great outing with friends on the patio between 3-5 pm. Although menu had limited options, we still had a good meal and wonderful drinks. Great service, too bad there was a 2 hour limit, we could have stayed for dinner since we gotten hungry again. May be next time

    This was our first visit to Dockside, and we will be eager to return. Impeccable, and friendly service from Julian. Lovely, peaceful patio with wonderful view of the waterfront. It was brunch time and menu (luscious eggs Benny, frittata and amazing stuffed French toast), so we look forward to sampling their lunch and dinner fare.

    We had a fantastic server named Jules who was attentive and friendly! The only thing that was odd was that someone called to confirm who’s birthday we were celebrating but they never did anything about it at the restaurant so I’m not so sure it was necessary to call for the info? Also, on the website it says happy hour is at 2:30 but it doesn’t start until 3 or 2:45. Not sure as we were given conflicting info when we arrived.

    1st visit in a few years, was disappointed. New chef, menu limited. Nothing vegan, few vegeterian option (was hoping for the zucchini noodles dish I got in the past). Asked if I could buy a few sides to build an entree' and was told NO SUBSTITUTIONS, NO EXCEPTIONS!" Had Caesar salad and a gnocchi starter, which were fine. Others at my table enjoyed halibut, paella and lamb very much. Service ok, had to ask for ice in water (it was a hot day). Still a great spot, but prices for food and drinks high. Used to love this place, would rather get takeout from the Granville Island market and sit on a bench--same view.

    The atmosphere at Dockside is amazing! We had a patio table with a beautiful view of the water. We also had the pleasure of our favourite server, Graham. He is always so friendly and gives the most genuine service! The food was good overall, but the halibut was disappointing this time. It was over-cooked so I sent it back, and when it came out a second time, it was somewhat better, but still not up to my expectations. I had it before, and it was delicious, but I would not order it again based on how it tasted this time. My son’s salmon salad was very good, he said. If you are looking for a nice place for lunch on a summer day, choose the Dockside and ask for Graham.

    Gorgeous view. The other person's salmon benny was apparently excellent, and my bacon and egg breakfast was okay. A few criticisms: It would have been nice to be able to sit outside on such a beautiful morning; however, not offered the option although others were. When one asks whether the orange juice is fresh squeezed and is told "yes", then one does not expect to be served some obviously not fresh squeezed orange juice and when asking again being told that Sysco fresh squeezed it . . . Also, bacon was undercooked even for chewy. Soft poached eggs came out medium. And no peanut butter for the cold, tough toast?!?!

    Use to visit Dockside over the past 6 years for excellent meals, staff interaction and ambience. The latter two remain the same fortunately. Not sure if the pandemic has impacted the food side of the equation. Food was generally cold when it should be hot, plating was haphazard, menu looked it was tossed together. Dishes tried ranged from multiple starters to mains. Were it not for staff, excellent cocktails and great company, would not return. Had to pay for $10 for 4 small buns. What happened to the kitchen?? Kudos to staff Diana and Patrick. Very warm and welcoming. If we return will go old school and order a fish or meat and veg main and a soup or salad.
