    First visit! Very impressed! Felt it was a bit stark in decor …I guess that is the I style these days. My opinion doesn’t matter, the food is important and what we ordered was excellent, sharable and well presented. Our waitress Mandy a pleasure . Sharon

    Visited while on vacation. The view is spectacular. You overlook open waters at any tables you seat at. Food was excellent. We enjoyed every dish we ordered. I especially liked the seafood chowder.

    Not very impressed. No option for reserving the patio and we ended up in a table in the middle of the room. The restaurant had a cafeteria feel to it. Nice view of the marina and mountains across the straight but no ambiance beyond that. I found it to be a Very limited menu with pedestrian food. The nachos were good but My chicken wings were very bland and the fries a mix of fresh and stale. Drinks were very expensive about $10 more for a bottle of wine vs cactus club.

    With a reservation, we were sitting on the back side of the pub, definitely felt a bit to far away, no view as requested. Would be nice to get some blinds on the windows , to block the sun All in all pretty good

    Booked a visit, beautiful venue. Fantastic marina view. Our server was great, the GM even lended a hand with table service. Standard cocktails were good but the nevroni was a little dry. Our appetizer of sesame slaw with prawns was wonderful, fresh and tasty. The Mains were decent, though they ran out of mussels and substituted manilla clams in the Moule frites. Excellent broth. My steak wasn’t quite the correct colour for med-rare but had lovely flavour, the charred veg and whipped potatoes were good. Great job on the demi-glaze. In all a wonderful venue with a decent selection menu items. They just need a few more bodies to ramp up the service and allow for more guests. Four stars from the P1cklebaron

    Our first experience when it just opened was not good It was a beautiful sunny day and it was not busy. Part of the reason may be the "artsy fartsy" menu and the prices. Your menu is in no man's land. You are going to need more substantial pub style food at slightly above traditional fare and prices with better value ,Maybe go up scale to offer 4 star dinning for the dinner hours. The rigatoni was not good at all. The dandelions on top was a turnoff .The chicken burger was a disaster.

    This was my 3rd time to Seascape, I wanted to introduce Seascape to friends who hadn’t been there, as I had enjoyed it throughly the other times, unfortunately we got off to a unpleasant start with the hostess who pretty much ignored us when we arrived and spent a lot of time looking at her seating plan, when I asked for a different table and we were told the table was for a reservation, I replied we have a reservation and we are here? Instead of answering my perfectly reasonable question the hostess said absolutely nothing and walked off, somebody else came and sat us at the requested table which was great but I didn’t understand why the hostess was so rude? I was very polite with my question, it spoiled the excitement of introducing Seascape to my friends, I won’t return in a hurry, I hope that that the hostess learns a little about customer service, I understand staff is hard to find but rudeness I can’t tolerate.

    The Father’s Day rack of ribs special was tender, fall off the bone and saucy. The kids menu Mac n cheese was actually delicious, too - I ate what the little one couldn’t finish. The dirty bird chicken sandwich was such a big mouthful it probably needed to be eaten with fork and knife, but no complaints on flavour. Generous portions and good service. The highlight of the experience is the setting - the restaurant is modern and stylish, the view of the marina and ocean is incredible. We hiked the Notch nearby beforehand to work up an appetite and visited Brickyard Community Park. Seascape was the perfect place to relax after.

    Food was not good, just average. Fries were supposed to be triple fried and pictures online look amazing, but nope, and they were cold. We sent back for hot fries. Got no apology. Did get replacment meal in very short order, but they weren't good, nor was burger or dirty chicken (sauce tasted like vinegar and Siracha - ewww) not good. Then they charged us double for the replacment meals. OOps, we missed it at restaurant, waitress did not notice the bill was high, hubby thought I had ordered an $$ bottle of wine and didn't look too closely at the bill. Left a VM re the mix up. Restarant manager confirmed they had double billed us. No apology, but he would refund our money - no kidding! After complaining a bit more, including leaving tip for OK service on double the amount, we agreed to a $ amount on refund. Manager then offered us a gift card for a free appie. No thanks we won't be back. Beautiful view.... go for a drink.

    Good service (Jessica) and great atmosphere. My chowder wasn't quite hot, but they were busy and it was delicious, so I didn't say anything. Asian slaw salad dressing was lacking in a bit of punch. My dad loved his fish and chips and my mom loved her chicken pot pie. The Open Savignon Blanc was delicious.

    Beautiful view from our window seat. Wait staff very friendly and attentive. Steelhead salmon perfectly done and beer batter cod and chips with slaw delicious. Only complaint is that it was very noisy as the ceiling is high and there is no acoustic dampening. We would definitely go back but recommend adjustments to offset the noise problem.

    Amazing views, lovely place. Food is mediocre- bland, over cooked, doesn’t taste fresh and not worth the price. You’d expect more seafood dishes as location is right on the water. The plates used were very random and something you’d see at a cafe/ your grandparents… didn’t quite fit the ambience and interior of the restaurant. Menus are paper copy but obviously reused multiple times, crumbled and torn… place has great potential with some changes!

    Wouldn’t order pizza again! Arrived only warm. Half as large as before. More expensive. Couldn’t combine pizza types. Server not familiar with menu. Restaurant very noisy! Poor value. Changed significantly since last time we were there.

    Seating was good, in the bar area corner table. Server got two of our four drink orders wrong (or, could have been the bar server). Food was served in good time. Three of four enjoyed their food selection. Natcho order was found to be short on cheese & toppings and therefore somewhat dry. Service overall was pleasant.

    We made a last minute reservation as it was fairly close to where we were staying. Had a window seat with gorgeous views across the bay, where we could watch the storms passing from peak to peak. Unfortunately they were out of a couple of the menu items we were looking forward to trying - the crab stuffed mushrooms, and the mussels. They offered clams instead of mussels, which the hubby proclaimed very good. I had planned two starters around the mushrooms, but ended up switching to The Dirty Bird. It was ok as chicken sandwiches go - definitely nothing to write home about. Service was excellent. The hall is cavernous - kind of a cross between a cafeteria and restaurant. The really high ceilings make it noisy - and not in an 'energetic' way. Overall, decent. Would I race back? Probably not - but would I rule it out - definitely not. Would like to give it another try if we're out that way again.

    Food and service was absolutely amazing. Thank you. We did find though that the tall ceilings caused substantial noise. The restaurant was not busy at all (3:00 pm reservation). We think the noise level would be unbearable if the restaurant was full. It would likely help if there were cloth noise protectors installed in the ceiling.

    Overall it was a lovely experience. We had been before and this time, introduced another couple to the restaurant. We don't like to be picky, especially when it is difficult to get staff, however since you asked I will tell you this. I requested ice on the side with my martini and it was forgotten. Not a big deal. When we ordered wine, 4 glasses, not a bottle, there was some confusion between the bar and our server, so my husband went to the bar to inquire when the wine did not show up. Also, not a big deal. We like the restaurant very much and will continue to recommend it.
