I was disappointed that there was no lobster on menu Hubby had salmon and it was a bit over cooked and lots of chickpeas (which my husband did not enjoy) and rice. I had the pork schnitzel with crab and shrimp with bernaise sauce. It was good but shrimp were a bit fishy tasting. The cranberry apple crumble was excellent.

OK on all accounts. Best value is delicious Chef’s Cove shucked fresh oysters for $1.00 each.

The seafood linguine is officially my favourite linguine ever. I wanted to drink the sauce at the end of the meal, but its a nice restaurant and I was on a date... and those things are frowned upon. Definitely make a reservation as the restaurant is small, but so worth it. Will be going back soon!

It did not meet our expectations st all. Service was slow it took us an hour to get our brunches. The food was mediocre at best.
We have always had wonderful diners here and I think they should stick to that.

Had not been to this little gem in over 25 years, why we waited so long I will never know.
Food was amazing, service was excellent.
Will not be waiting another 25 years.
Anyone looking for a lovely evening please try this spot.

Great evening..... My wife says " best lamb she has ever had". Gave us a supposedly "quite " window table..very nice, but a party of 4 at opposite end of the room was so loud it spoiled the first part of the evening... Until they left. After they left, although the the room was almost full, the noise level was very low. It is unfortunate how some people don' t respect those around them.

Chowder was good but everything else was average at best. Cold food not cold and hot food not hot. Filet “Fraser” (Oscar) was overcooked with bland hollandaise and dry crab. Overpriced.

We eat here every time we come to the Vancouver area and look forward to it with great anticipation! The food is exceptional and top notch service as well. This time there were six of us, everyone had a different entree, everyone was delighted! My favorite here is the Mighty Fraser filet with crab and shrimp, but the scallops were exceptional and so was the salmon. This is one of the few restaurants I can say has never missed for us, highly recommend you try it!

We made a spontaneous reservation, after flying home from a longer weekend away. Seafood appetizers and a shared main course of halibut made for a great Tuesday dinner. Tried Liquidity's Viognier with the recommendation of our server, Kari (sp?). Once again, a lovely evening and we will return.

the place was quiet but the table beside us was very noisy. The food was great except the sole was too salty. The raw oysters were good and inexpensive at $1 each. Service was definitely perfect and timely.

Had a lovely brunch at Steveston Seafood House. Wonderful service and ambience and amazing food. The crab cake eggs Benedict and Brioche French toast were to die for. We were celebrating my mother in law’s 70th birthday and they were very accommodating hosting a large party. Highly recommend!

Our server was good as was the food, but the ambiance was lacking, and considering that the place was not packed, it felt like we were being rushed out. I had noted in the reservation that it was a family dinner for my mother's birthday and they did not make a real effort to make it special, other than adding a candle to a dessert which we paid for. I have been to other restaurants where they bring out something unique for dessert or at least provide something on the house. For the amount of the bill, I don't think this is unrealistic, and it goes a long way in providing a great dining experience. Overall the experience was just okay.

Overall, and I've lived in the area for many years, service and food was very good..........just one thing and that was the extreme "fishy" smell as you walk in the door......... I guess that cannot be helped as it is a seafood restaurant....... I would come back.

I was expecting a little more quality but the food was average (crab was cold) and the rice and vegetables were a little bland. We will probably not go back. The service was pretty good and the waiter was attentive and knew his menu well. But for the price I was hoping for a meal to remember.
