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!

Servers were very attentive. Food is unique, very tasty, interesting. We shared brussels sprouts as appetizer. very rich, lots of flavour. Wife had the steelhead salmon and I had the skillet Mac n Cheese. Great location overlooking False Creek bay.

Our lunch was very good and I was happy that we were seated by the window as the view was especially gorgeous on the November day we were there due to some rare sunshine. Our food was tasty but service was very slow. It took 20 minutes or more before the server came over to take our order which was perplexing as it didn't appear particularly busy. It took a long time to get our bill at the end too, which can be uncomfortable in a business meeting setting as we're all eager to wrap up and get back to work. Saying that, our server was pleasant and very friendly.

I found the dish I order was way to salty, but overall it was a great experience. In fact, I will be back on November 27th with other friends & family.

The atmosphere of Dockside is lovely. Upon ordering, we had a bit of an issue because my husband is eating strictly keto and they told us the chef wouldn't modify any meals because the chef was determined to plate and serve his meals a certain way which was frustrating. After much back and forth, they eventually served the lamb without the grains and my husband, my mom, and I were able to enjoy some fabulous food before we went to the Dolly Parton musical at the Stanley. It was a great evening, thank you. If you need to modify meals, Dockside not the best choice. That being said, the food is delicious, the view of False Creek is beautiful, and the atmosphere and service were great. Highly recommend!

Lunch was good . You can lose the canned “ so called” music which is noisy base thumping. On Sirius. There are many other music channels on Sirius that are much more suitable fir dining, no one is dancing

We thoroughly enjoyed our food selections: hummus appetizer, beet appetizer, as well as the duck confit and cioppino entrees ( the latter was particulalry delicious). This chef knows what he was doing! The service we received from Jules was not only highly professional, but so very pleasant. My only disappointment was the noise level, due to a couple of large groups close by. The next time, I will make a point of asking for a table in a quieter area, given the hearing issues of my spouse and the age group that we are in... We will be back for sure- this is one of our favorite neighbourhood gems, given that we live in the False Creek area.

Food was good, ambience was great. The view was phenomenal but the experience was not so good due to the service. We booked this way in advance for my spouses Birthday and we had high hopes. We left feeling like it was an unpleasant experience.

The Dockside is a lovely place to have lunch - very spacey and nice to look out at the water and the various boats that are moored there. Our son and daughter-in-law and grandchildren all live in various areas close by,, so nice place to go for lunch.

I’ve had better meals at Dockside but it’s still one of my favourites. Our server was exceptional but the noise level was very high. Why do people feel like they have to raise their voices in restaurants?

Two items we ordered were wrong and one meal was late and we go the wrong dessert.
Music was too loud and not appropriate for dinner seating. Sounded like we were in a nightclub.

Turkey dinner was lovely, but portions were small. Wait staff charming. Noise level & distractions high. Sound system laughable. Wondering why they even had one. Venue in desperate need of a renovation. They are charging high prices with ugly decor: cheap vinyl floors, cheesy etched glass, arborite wall units. You’d think it was the 70’s.

My appetizer was awful. A piece of cheese with no flavor. The Mojito had a weird taste, either the lime or the mint were expired. Menu options were limited, so I went for the halibut that had an unpleasant layer of (?) that was too oily. Dessert was ok but nothing outstanding. 170 dollars for two people, definitely not worth the price.
