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!

Really enjoy the meal I chose, but was disappointed with the entree choices that were part of the Dine Out Vancouver menu. None of us wanted either of the choices offered so we ended up ordering off the regular menu. Was that the hope when the DOV menu was chosen?

Wife had sable fish with a soy-based sauce. They had a prix fixe menu for "Vancouver dine out festival" that my buddy and I ordered. We both got scampi... He got pork cheeks and a basil panicotta... I got the winter squash risotto and the pot de creme. The wine pairing with BC wines was quite good. In fact everything was outstanding (though I think my risotto has a bit too much salt) service was really good and the general mood of the restaurant was perfect. I really could not ask for any changes (except a bit less salt!)

The food was outstanding. I have been coming here off and on for years and food often mediocre . But I think they have a new chef . The prawns were delicious and the lobster spaghetti very tasting . The noise level is quite high as it is a fairly open space with nothing to buffer the noise but the scenery best in Vancouver makes up for it

The food is great. Service is what you are always wanting, not too pushy, not too sparing.I have issues with my hearing so i found it particularly loud, as there was many guests because dine out Vancouver had just begun. The dine out menu this year was really good as one of our friends at the table had it, but the rest of us ate off menu, and of course, it was really good as well. I had the sable fish and, mmmm, I can never get enough of it.
Would I go back again? Of course ,but would ask to be put in a side booth so hopefully the noise level would seem lessened

The restaurant was so cold. Hard to enjoy when your freezing. The waitress agreed with the complaint. We ordered cups of hot tea for our hands to warm up. Food also cooled down quickly due to the problem.
No dessert as we needed to go somewhere warmer.
I go to Dockside every few months. This is the first time I was disappointed.

Has a special Anniversary dinner that was acknowledged with a sparkler. Good server. Rushed away our plates a bit too quickly, but food came hot and fresh. Didn't rush us out though. Always a real nice place to enjoy a meal.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and made reservations for Christmas even dinner at dockside. The restaurant was beautiful and our waitress was so kind and offered great recommendations! The food was delicious! My only thought would be it would be nice if the main dishes had a side or two served with them. The food is wonderful but sometimes it’s nice to have some contrasting flavors especially if the dish is super savory. Maybe even a bread basket! One other note- my husband did include a note that it was our honeymoon and we never expect anything but it would be nice if it had been acknowledged. Our hotel did it throughout our stay and it just made us feel so welcomed! Of course- I never expect anything free from a business. A little note or flower could’ve been nice! Overall I would take my family here if they visited- the staff, service time, ambience, location, and food were all wonderful!

It was a horrible experience. Thought we booked the Christmas dinner on the 24th. And went there on time, then told that we have the table until 6pm and we only have happy hour menu. I was so confused, then the hostess told us, they tried to reach me to confirm that it is just the happy hour not christmas dinner, and they tried to contact me but couldn't get a hold of me because I don't have voice mail. So basically just didn't tell me. Well, I asked maybe you can text me or email me. And the hostess is like, well yea nothing we can do here, you gotta leave by 6pm that's it. Like serious bad service, didn't do anything to try to fix it. Just a unsincener sorry. But nothing can be done. Horrible, and ruined a bit of my holiday spirit.

This place is special for us for various reasons so it’s hard to be objective.
Unfortunately I have to say that the quality of food has gone down over the last 2 years. It was good but not more.
We‘ll return anyway….

Had a chance to host a friend over Christmas to a lunch at the Dockside. The place is decorated wonderfully for Christmas and being able to reserve in advance via Open Table really helps to make sure you get a reservation.

We were seated after the usual protocols, and had a window seat. Our server was attentive and we ordered the grill cheese & excellent soup combo. My guest had the Mac' n Cheese which he said was excellent.

Look forward to our next chance to go to the Dockside.... In the winter the food carries it, in the summer it's the view and the food..........lol

Seating spot was a bit cramped at our table, but cosy. Excellent service, waiter very attentive to our needs.
Menu is a bit awkward to understand and written in very small font...could be better.
Venue very nice, protocols good, and clean.
