Dockside Patio is Now Open as of March 30th, 2021

Please be advised that as we are 100% Open Air with no coverage from rain and that in the event of rain we will be required to close it without notice and cancel reservations due to the current Health order restricting indoor dining which is in place until April 19, 2021.

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 November 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!

It would be nice to have a little more selection on the menu, some lighter and more refreshing choices.

Terrible customer service. Imagine that you’ve booked a specific table for your birthday one week in advance and they would give you the worst table without any light and heater. Even after asking to change the table, because we were shaking and we could barely see what we were eating, they ignored our requests while there were many other tables available.

I found the server wasn’t attentive and we sat for quite a while before being able to order, the food was ok but nothing great for the price we paid.

Had a terrible experience. Server was not good at all. Didnt bring blankets when asked. Served really bad cocktail and didn’t even ask if it was good or not. He smelled really bad of smokes and alcohol.

I'd give Dockside Restaurant 5 stars if they still featured their draft beer. No draft was available at all, so only 4 stars. IMHO, they do have the best patio in Vancouver!

My mom and two of my daughters and I had a wonderful dining experience at the Dockside restaurant! We had a lovely, quiet table on the patio/deck, where we had a very friendly server, quick and attentive, all of our food choices were delicious, drinks were cold and refreshing, bottles of cold water were replaced seamlessly, and we had an absolutely fantastic visit as well! We are very much looking forward to our next get together and will repeat this wonderful experience for sure!

I’m a very regular customer. While I didn’t explain my reason, I ordered an Avocado toast but was told it can’t be done because it’s a brunch item. It was 11:45 am. I’m on a special diet and ended up ordering your soup and grilled cheese sandwich. Not much difference between the two sandwiches is there?

Disappointing.

Made a reso specifically for my mothers 61st birthday. Told them I was bringing a cake, and at NO TIME during my conversation with the receptionist did they 1) tell me external cakes could NOT be stored in the fridge and 2) that they WILL NOT serve the cake.

basic communication out the window. cake sat on the cement floor outside and melted.

absolutely nothing was done to ensure my mother felt 'special' on her birthday.

wouldnt waste my time or money on this place. total joke!!!!!!

My advice is to avoid this restaurant at all costs! The manager and hostess were rude and unhelpful, and I can honestly say this was one of the worst dining experiences in my life. Here is why. We arrived this morning just before opening to an empty restaurant and was told by an unfriendly and unhelpful hostess that they were fully booked for the day. Disappointed but curious, we searched on Opentable.ca and found plenty of tables available, so we made a reservation online and explained to the hostess that we were able to secure a table that way. Upon arriving at our table, we noticed it was in a more open area of the patio, so we requested for a table with more covering to lessen the wind impact on our dining experience. Hostess said no because the other tables were reserved, so we proceeded to sit down. Within minutes of ordering our food, the panel of the heat lamp dislodged and slammed into the ground with a loud bang while disconnecting the heat source. This happened 4 times in less than 20 minutes, and the service staff had to come over to fix the panel and reconnect the heat source each time. Coupled with the loud bang that startled us and the other diners in the area, this really disturbed our dining experience and after the service staff gave up on fixing it, we requested to change tables. Service staff had no authority to make this change, so the manager was called over. The manager explained that due to the COVID-19 provincial order, diners cannot switch tables after being seated. What a ridiculous interpretation of the provincial order, which was designed to prevent table hopping. Her explanation was clearly for the convenience of her team who wouldn’t be bothered to sanitize and set up the table. She goes on to say that we should have dressed more appropriately for dining in an outdoor setting (which we did) and should have asked for a specific table before being seated (which we did). Long story short, very disappointing and will never come back.

My only criticism was about the music....especially when Restaurant is full....
Keep music very low , and maybe in hall & washrooms only !!

It was difficult for our table to hear each other 🤔

Hadn’t been to the Dockside since before Covid (or BC!). Great varied menu (our friend is vegetarian, lots of choice for her) excellent service (unfortunately I can’t remember our waiter’s name, but he was very personable)
The food was excellent, we plan to meet for lunch there next month -
