Great service! :) However, the salmon was overcooked. The sablefish was well made, but I remember having a better cut last time. Maybe it was because of COVID? (Limited kitchen staff and supply chain?) Anyway, it continues to be one of my favourite local restaurants.

It had been years since our last dinner at Steveston Seafood House, having been underwhelmed in the past. Our recent visit was really exceptional. We were crowd of six ranging from two 18 year olds to my mom in her 70s. The service was really outstanding. Friendly and attentive. The meals were all delicious. Very well worth the price, that was consistent with that level of dining. We enjoyed the evening so much that we made brunch reservations for the next day on our way out. Highly recommended when you're looking for a nice meal in Steveston.

Food is excellent but they have no understanding of social distancing. Servers leaning over your shoulder for serving, topping up water, clearing dishes, etc. They get within 1 foot of your face (and don't use masks). Great food but won't be back until post-covid.

Our family chose Steveston Seafood House for our special occasion and 1st dining experience since covid. The dining room was as quaint as always, with tables spread apart but still warm and cozy. Service was excellent as always. I had the spot prawn appetizer, which was amazing!!! There is also a spot prawn dinner special, they get their catch fresh daily from Steveston docks. Yummy!

My appetizers were excellant. My wife’s was quite disappointing (Crab, Shrimp and Avacado salad). We were both very pleased with our main course dishes. The wine was a little limited (due to Covid-19 issues) and a little expensive but was excellant.

Double your tip!

It was so great to get out to a fabulous dinner at the Steveston Seafood House. And so great to see our friends there again after the long break. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. They always treat my Mom so well, no wonder this is her favourite spot.
Remember that these folks have been keeping themselves alive with take-out only for more than 2 months. If you are amongst the lucky ones that have been able to earn a full income during thus time, consider sharing a bit of your good fortune with the staff. Double your usual tip. It doesn't cost you all that much and will help them get by as they operate at 50% or less capacity. We all love our restaurants. Show them the love and double your tip!

Everything was wonderful, we both had the Duck, which was delicious, and thanks to our great server Brianne, she recommended a great wine to go with it. Can always count on a terrific experience at the Seafood House.

Our server was quite impolite went to celebrate my birthday. Was really looking forward to it I always tell people how great steveston is. Our server made remarks about how much I ordered, took away our plates before we were finished eating, didn't attend to our water being refilled, rolled her eyes at me numerous times. Created an unpleasant experience that ultimately put a bad taste in my mouth.

I booked Steveston Seafood House for a business dinner attended by 16. We had a lovely private space. Everyone enjoyed their dinners and the service was outstanding. I can highly recommend this restaurant for any group or even a nice dinner for 2.

Always excellent here. Starting off with prawn cocktail and oysters, then trying sea bass for the first time and finishing with a luscious lemon blueberry dessert and icewine. Everything was perfectly prepared and I would definitely have sea bass again. It's a bit of work but well worth it.

It was our 24th wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect. Food was excellent, as always. The restaurant was full however you could have a nice quiet conversation and no need to yell at each other. We have been to this restaurant many many times and never disappointed. The owner, Shane always comes around and chats. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a lovely brunch with a friend. My friend and I had the stuffed crepes with crab and shrimp. Lots of crab. My husband had eggs Bennie with ham. There were three choices. He thought it was very good. We sat and chatted for awhile after breakfast and there was no rush to leave. We would go again.

We had their Valentine Special and it was wonderful, as always. Stewart looked after us, and suggested a nice wine to have with our Steak. Stewart did a marvelous job serving us, it is like having dinner with the family. Best place in town for a great evening out. We will be back. Diane makes the best martini.

Very average food with a quiet ambience. We had the appetizer platter for two people which was OK. Main we had the pasta of the day (short rib pappardelle) and miso sable fish. Dessert was a tramisu. I recalled the waitress told us that the pasta has mushroom but I didn't see any on the plate. The pasta was not on par with some of the good Italian restaurants out there as the taste was just some salt and barbeque sauce. Sablefish was OK but the sides (rice and bell pepper) were not very good. The rice was very soggy. Lastly, the tiramisu was a disappointment. The description of the dessert made it sound like an authentic Italian tiramisu with lady fingers...etc...but it turned out to be a sponge cake. The ambience was nice though but I don't think we will go back for the food.
