It has been many years since we have been to Steveston Seafood. We had made reservations and were initially given a table near the front door. As it was a cold evening out we asked for another table. The room has very nice décor and is very cozy.The tables a spaced far enough apart that you do not have to worry about eavesdropping. The tables are also nice set with fine linens and cutlery. The service was very good. I didn’t get our servers name but she took very good care of us during the evening and even provided us with another basket of bread.
To start my husband and I shared mussels in a bacon, pernod cream sauce. They were very nicely cooked and the sauce was wonderful. We made good use of the bread to scoop up the sauce. For entrees my husband had blackened salmon and I had duck. My husband felt the salmon could have used just a touch more seasoning but then he likes his food really spicy. My duck was excellent and perfectly cooked, the skin was nice and crispy but the duck meat was so tender and delicious. We didn’t have room for dessert.
We had a bottle of wine with dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. It was very relaxing, the food was very good and the service was warm and friendly. We would definitely return.

Steveston Seafood House (SSH) is a must when in Steveston. Their food is delicious and their service is attentive. My family and I very much enjoyed our dining experience tonight. We sat in the quieter space which was isolated from the other diners, just the way we like it. Our servers were pleasant and thoroughly attentive, checking on us often to ensure we had everything we needed, we surely did!

We ordered a few appetizers: calamari rings, mussels in tomato and wine sauce, bacon wrapped scallops, and beet with feta salad. The calamari rings were tender and the batter was light and crispy. The mussels were super plump and juicy. The scallops wrapped with bacon were tasty but anything with bacon is always tasty.

For our mains, we ordered 3 fish dishes (sturgeon, ling cod, and sablefish), and 1 filet mignon. I didn't get a chance to taste the steak but the 3 fish entrees were delicious. My favorite out of the three would have to be the sablefish. It was melt in your mouth like butter delicious! The sturgeon was their special feature for the night. It is the firmer fish out of the three and was my mom's favorite. The ling cod was a large piece that was herb crusted.

SSH has certainly upped their game and I am definitely looking forward to dining here again soon.

This is our favorite restaurant - to celebrate special occasions, to treat ourselves, to take friends, acquaintances and family, or if we just want a really good seafood dinner (the steak is fantastic too). We have been going there for years, and it is always special. Highly recommended.

It was a lovely evening the food was outstanding, we both had the rack of lamb, so good, ate way too much but so worth it. Tina did an awesome job of looking after us, and helping us with our food and wine chooses. We are never disappointed with our measl or service at the Steveston Seafood House, always the best.

Great food and excellent service. It was great to return to a restaurant we have always liked. As it is a high end restaurant, we can only go there on special occasions, but it certainly is worth it. We would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys being well fed and well treated.

We have been going to the restaurant since it opened in 1978 ish. This was our 32 wedding anniversary and everything was great. Looking forward to trying the new brunch.
Many great dinners over the years. Al. Huculak.

I marked that the dinner was a special birthday occassion but unfortunately we received no acknowledgement of such at any time during the dinner. I think a happy birthday greeting would have been nice. Fortunately my wife was not too fussy about such thing, so skin was saved! It was probably an oversight as this is nice restaurant that I regularly go to.

We booked the Steveston Seafood House for my birthday. I was hard pressed to book as the past couple of times the food and service did not meet expectations; especially during brunch where we were placed in a cramped table in a narrow room in the back. I also ordered the frittata which was very dry and inedible.

We arrived and they placed us in a spacious table.
Our server, Kent, was pleasant and affable.
However, the appetizers and kids meals took 35 minutes and the entire meal took 50 minutes to be served. This is far too long. I wouldn’t expect this on a Friday evening.

Yet, the family did enjoy their meals and are willing to return. But as this is my third disappointing experience, I will not choose to return.

Our favorite restaurant in all of Richmond, we have been going here for over 30 years. The food is always excellent, the service is awesome. This time we used our Groupon. Great value, a lot of food, which was wonderful. It is nice to go into an establishment and be greeted , and made welcome like an old friend. Our server Tina was cheerful, knowable, and gave us great service.

My husband and I went to the Steveston Seafood House to celebrate our anniversary. We hadn’t been there in years.
My husband ordered the Red Thai Seafood Bowl and I ordered Sablefish. Both of our meals were delicious and the presentation was beautiful.
Our waitress Brianne was very attentive and friendly and the owner came by our table to ask us how everything was.
It was a very relaxing, enjoyable time. We look forward to going back.

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.

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.
