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 came here for a birthday and the food was good but the experience was very underwhelming. No energy from the staff, no birthday dessert or complementary drink. I wouldn’t come here again to celebrate something. But the view is lovely.

    I have been going to Dockside for many years, even when it was called Pelican Bay. My friends and I, my sister as well feel the food has drastically changed from what it once was and it is so disappointing especially if you don't eat meat. My husband and I used to love coming there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and also had many meals at Christmas. The ambience is still so beautiful and I am very disappointed in the choices on the menu and as mentioned, my friends feel the same way. Brunch is still good tho and love that we can get a Latte etc. Thank you

    Saturday, May 22, 2022 - booked for 12:15 for Brunch. I came early, but was told could only sit me down 10 min. before booked time even the inside and outside were literally empty. We came back ON TIME. We were seated on the patio, which was nice. The receptionist who brought us to the table was friendly and accommodating. However our server, Ayla, was smiley, but was very rude on her words. Three of us asked for coffee, were given a cup each, but we had to share one spoon and one small jug of cream. I had to use my fork to stir my coffee. During ordering, I asked for my fries to be put in a bowl instead on the plate with the burger, so the other can share them. But Ayla replied: “we are NOT accommodating request because the kitchen being short staff is very busy”. Then I saw a dish delivered to next table had their fries come in a bowl. I used to love going there because their servers are very accommodating. Our bill - two classic breakfasts, one burger and three cups coffee - total C$98 (with 15% tips). I still give the 15% tips, because I’ll give Dockside another chance. To restaurant’s Management: DON’T SLIP ON THE SERVICE PERFORMANCE, if short staff, take less guests. “Shortsightedness can be costly in long run”.

    Wine by the glass is pricey. No happy hour after 5. Menu has changed. No longer has the classic caesar salad with bacon--now with kale. Entrees are expensive. Limited menu. Server was great. View is beautiful.

    Food is extraordinary! I had a tu ah tartare it’s was tasty but different than what an usual would look like. After I had a Mac&cheese with prawn, amazing!! For the dessert had the lemon tart which is a regular bread, this was the server recommendation, I shouldn’t probably go with it! The server was really bad, lack of experience and hospitality knowledge. I had to call him more than Once cuz she forgot about me! One time he came with a full mouth, couldn’t even speak. Too bad to have a server like that in a place like this! Ruins the experience

    I attended for the Mother's Day brunch and still a bit in shock that a tab for 4 people came to $650. We each has a mimosa and a house wine with our brunch (neither included, would have been nice if the mimosa was) but seems a very hefty tag for eggs. The menu was completely limited, a couple small (heavily dressed) salads to choose from, chicken strips, variation of fries, some basic pastries and the rest was basically egg variations? Definitely not what I would expect for a special brunch at over $100/person (with tax and tip). I compare it to the hotel brunches I have had in the past and this was a 3/10. Our server was AWESOME though, he was kind, funny, quick, professional and a real charmer. If it wasn't for him, the day would have been a complete bust. The front desk at arrival pointed to my seat rather than walk me over. Will definitely not go back again for this brunch, but may stick to a la carte if I decide to give it another chance.

    We were extremely disappointed to arrive at Dockside for Mothers’ Day Brunch, which they advertised as “Bottomless Brunch” and charged $90 a head for, to learn that “Bottomless” actually meant food. We were under the impression that Bottomless Brunch would include mimosas, as this is the way Bottomless Brunch is advertised at most Vancouver Restaurants. I don’t know many mom’s (or people, for that matter), who eat $90 per person worth of food. We ordered a normal amount of food (2 eggs bennies with potatoes), and 2 mimosas each, and were charged a whopping $250. Times are right now, especially for young parents, and we were just really disappointed about this extreme price gauging, the low value for our money, and honestly the sense of being taken advantage of.

    Really enjoyed every aspect of our birthday brunch. The arrival of a party with two small children very close to us during the last 10 minutes of our stay, changed the atmosphere somewhat (!), but we were close to leaving anyway. And, inn any case, what can you do? There is nothing to say small children shouldn’t be taken to nice restaurants, especially when they are adjoining a hotel.

    We had specifically requested patio seating due to one member of the party having concerns regarding Covid safety. We weren't informed that the patio was closed until after we had arrived and been seated indoors. It would have been preferable to have been advised that our specific request could not be accommodated before we had all made the trip to Granville Island and paid for parking for two vehicles. Despite several emails confirming the reservation, none of those emails indicated that the patio would not be available. We chose the restaurant specifically because their website advertises that their patio has won awards and as such we were very disappointed at the lack of notification.

    Dockside restaurant is my favourite place in Vancouver for birthday brunches and out-of-town dinner guests. The views over False Creek are outstanding. We took friends from Paris, France for dinner and they were very impressed. The restaurant was very full when we arrived and very noisy, but we could still speak to one another in normal voices without having to shout to be heard. The food was generally good, with my favourites being the gnochi with creme freche and the scallops with grilled cauliflower. The service was excellent.
