The food was delicious as always.
We had the Pernod, cream, bacon and onion mussels. Exquisite!
And everything else was fabulous!

An old favourite for many years. An anniversary this time but wonderful for birthdays and Valentine's dinners as well (particularly cozy and romantic on a wet west coast night). Server (Kent) and manager were very agreeable and attentive. Food and wine were great, as usual. Would do it again in a heartbeat. (The food and wine bit - the anniversary bit will have to wait another year.)

Wasn’t terrible, booked a reservation by accident thinking it was the Fisherman’s warf on the water. Tried it out anyways. Menu didn’t have a ton of selection good & drink wise. Ambience was okay, but likely would not return 🤷🏼‍♀️

A little more formal than we expected. We did not care for the background music and the feeling that we had to whisper during dinner. Very nice but not quite what we expected.

The service we received was beyond excellence, the waiter had a great sense of humor without having to try hard. The seafood was some of the best seafood my family has eaten. Although I didn't have seafood and my chicken tasted like seafood it it to be expected in a seafood restaurant. My husband and son had the fresh crab and steak, they said it was amazing. The portion sizes are large especially the salad's. It was an excellent meal.

I had been to Steveston Seafood House a couple of times years ago with my husband and neither of us was impressed, so we didn't go back. However, a while ago a friend took me there and we found that it had been sold a number of years ago and had undergone a total refresh. The decor is lovely and the food and service were very good. I returned on Saturday with out-of-town friends and enjoyed it once again. It is pricey, but the seafood was well prepared and my seafood salad was delicious. Our only complaint was that my friend's steak was rather cool when it got to the table, but he didn't want to send it back because it would have ended up overcooked. We also really enjoyed being able to converse without music blasting at us!

The fish is ok, so is the service. It's overpriced, and the desserts are rough, especially the creme brule...

A wonderful place to take your date, even if you've been married 25 years. Excellent service and great food. Seafood is obviously their specialty, but the steak is great too. We're never disappointed.

Dinner was delicious. We had the blackened halibut and it was ultra fresh and perfectly cooked and presented. Definitely a special spot for a quiet and chic dinner compared to the restaurants on the touristy pier. We shall be back!

I had a lovely time here for my birthday. The oyster selection was great and at a reasonable price. I ordered the bouillabaisse and it was very hearty with lots of seafood in it. My partner had the schnitzel which was nice and crispy. I will definitely return to try other things on the menu, and I highly recommend this place if you are in Steveston.

We wanted a night without cooking and we wanted seafood. The Steveston Seafood House is a regular place for us. We know the people, the service, the wine list and the quality of the food. We were not disappointed! The three course menu offers good options and the portion size is perfect. The ice cream was banana and they were real! The chocolate mousse was good with bits of dark chocolate interspersed with the mousse. So glad we have this as our first choice.

Nice touches for our anniversary, with our names printed on the day's menu. I had phoned ahead to ensure crab was on the menu - they remembered and it was! Service was very good. Main dishes, seafood, were well prepared and tasty. The accompanying rice and vegetables were ok..... it could have been a little more interesting. The flavoured rice seemed an odd choice with crab and sablefish. Some of the vegetables were a little overdone, lacking some substance. All in all, a lovely restaurant, a good dining experience, and the service will bring us back.

All the food was dead cold. When we told the server they apologized and that was it. Have eaten there many times and loved it. They have really gone down hill. We won't be returning. $100.00 wasted.

Looking for fresh halibut we chose Steveston Seafood House, which has a good reputation and has been in Steveston for many years. We were not disappointed. The halibut was excellent as was the sable fish, both nicely presented.
The only issue we faced was that the restaurant did not have any record of the reservation made through open table, despite us having received several emails confirming our reservation. We did get a table right away, but had our reservation been any later we might have had a problem. The restaurant needs to have a better system to log online reservations.

This is one of our favorite restaurants that we enjoy going to often. On this occasion we went for Brunch my husband had the seafood crepes which was amazing. I had the crab cake bennies, which I was disappointed in as I didn`t feel that this was up to their usual high standards. I pointed out to our server Kari, that the crab cake was very dry and over cooked, she offered to replace it which I declined, she brought me extra sauce, which helped.
Kari did also suggested a excellent BC white wine.

The staff was very apologetic and gave us a complimentary gift card for another time.
Excellent service..

Boyfriend and I wanted to have seafood close by the water on our vancouver trip so we reserved a table here. Servers are friendly and informative on the menu and courteous to patrons. Foods are delicious and fresh. Oysters by the shucks are fresh and clean. Thai bowl has plenty of ingredients put together and not conflicting. Would recommend!
