That should be yes and no. The food was great as usual but there appeared to be only 1 wait staff and one buser so things were slow.

Good food, recommend for seafood dinner. The restaurant was nice but we were brought to the back seating area which was not as pleasant as the window area.

The food was delicious. I enjoyed my seafood chowder as well as the entree size of the seafood salad.
I appreciate the friendly service and highly recommended it, although it was a little noisy as the restaurant was full.

We know this restaurant well, it is such a neighbourhood gem. We started with mussels in tomato sauce. We then had rack of lamb snd a steak and crab dinner. We suggest that because the servings are generous take this into consideration and err on the side of less food!

Excellent as always. However this time we came with a Groupon offer thinking even if the offer menu were half as good as their cuisine has been over the years - we are regulars - it would be welcoming. Yet we were so surprised: the food, the service were well beyond expectations. What a sensational bargain - two appetizer, the main course, tiramisu - of such high quality.

Steveston Seafood House is a restaurant lived by the locals. Food is outstanding for every item on the menu. Personal interest by all staff is exceptional. They all know what customer service is all about. Locally owned & operated - you will always find whatever food you desire. Fresh seafood is a specialty. Looking forward to our next visit.

2 of us used a groupon set meal and 3 ordered off the menu. Food is always top notch here. Large portion sizes. Very good seafood chowder here. Excellent service, great location in Steveston.

Amazing food. It definitely quenched my sea food cravings. The portions are a good size. We got the groupon menu which had a good selection and added the thai seafood bowl which was amazing. Ended up with way too much food so packed some to go. I would definitely go back there. Service was excellent as well.

Good food, but would be better with less oil.
Value for money is with Groupon voucher.

We ate our anniversary dinner here and it was excellent. Everyone really enjoyed their entrees....from halibut to chicken to crab legs to schnitzel. Highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert if you have any room left. The server was very attentive and personable. Good place for a special dinner.

How do you dry out halibut during halibut season? I don't know, but you could go to this place to experience it. Every aspect of our dinner was below average.

The 5 fish dishes were extremely salty to the point some of us were unable to eat them and changed to another dish. The waitress inattentive to our needs and when we asked for water, she brought the bill. Overall not a pleasant experience and will not return.

Our waiter was outstanding - the food was not as up to the standard we have experienced before but it was still tasty.

Other than that I would recommend this restaurant to friends and acquaintances.

We have been going to SSH for many years (and a few owners!), this is our "date night" restaurant for all special occasions. Friendly, helpful staff we have come to know & appreciate, great food, seasonal specials and fairly decent wine list.
Stuart was our server for this dinner (my wife's birthday), convinced us to try the Mahi-mahi special which was excellent. He has looked after us several times in the past and is neat, funny guy.
All the wait staff are equally nice, and knowledgeable about all items on the menu and wine list.
Also virtually all the wait staff have been there for at least two or more years. A stable 'work force' makes dining at SSH an enjoyable experience.

We’ve dined here several times, but the quality this time was substandard for everyone at our table for 6. All fish and schnitzel dishes were significantly over cooked. Dry fish that crumbled under your fork and schnitzel thin and hard as a rock. It was not a busy evening in the restaurant, so I’m certainly questioning what’s changed in the kitchen. Not sure I’ll give them another chance...

This exceptional restaurant stands out among others. Scones & jam to start instead of bread were a delightful surprise, music was relaxing classical music you didn't have to shout over, food was outstanding & very fresh, attentive service & white linen tablecloths all combined to make our dining experience extraordinary.

Staff were great - very friendly, helpful and attentive.
Food was very tasty, seafood was amazing. Vegetables were done to perfection.
The reason for a 4 star rating was the schnitzel. The taste was amazing, the breading was just right... but it was a bit overcooked, with one end being dried out.
Overall, a wonderful experience and we will return.

It is a summer treat to come to Steveston and wander along the boardwalk. Just a couple of streets north is a little restaurant that serves seafood that is a cut above the fish and chips on the harbour. We had a half bottle of prosecco to accompany our dinners, halibut and the seafood linguine. Our starter was a seafood avocado salad that was very tasty, with lots of fresh crab and shrimp served in an avocado bowl.

We had a reservation for four and were seated immediately. Everything tasted great, from cocktails and wine to appetizers, salads, main dishes, and dessert. The service was attentive and friendly from knowledgable staff. We would absolutely dine here again on our next trip to the area.

We came all of the way from North Van for a lovely seafood dinner and we were not disappointed. I had the pecan-encrusted long cod, while my bf ate the red snapper with Pacific shrimp in a spicy, creamy New Orleans sauce - the fish were perfectly cooked! Both entrees were served on a bed of yellow (saffron?) rice, with asparagus and zucchini. The starters (calamari, carpaccio, Caesar salad, and seafood chowder) were all tasty. Tiramisu topped off our meals nicely. It was a lot of food! Service was excellent - unobtrusive, friendly, and efficient. We'll be back to try the regular menu!

Purchased a groupon for 4. Our waiter warned us about how much food there was and he didn’t exaggerate. The beef carpaccio is exceptional and great presentation. Our waiter was fantastic!

Food is way too salty, from appies down to entree. Soup and entree had way too much pepper like the bottle accidentally poured open. Dessert is not fine dining quality at all. Service was great , but they asked to tip off the full amount instead of the discounted paid price from Groupon. I’d say this resto is way too overrated given their food taste and quality.
