We have been to this restaurant on many occasions, as this is one of our favorites for many years. We were excited to try out there brunch menu. We certainly were not disappointed , we started with devils on horseback, I had the crab and shrimp crepe, and may husband had the seafood salad, with a terrific bottle of Pinot Gris. Everything was just marvelous, perfect way to start your Sunday. Can't wait to go back and try something else, everything looked and tasted wonderful. As usual the service was terrific, our server Brianne, looked after all our needs.

We tried to get a table for two for 6pm but that time slot was closed,so 5:45 was the closest we could get. We arrived and they placed us in the back at a cramped table for two along the wall. We respected that they may have a busy evening ahead, but when we left, half the tables in our section were empty. I would have appreciated them moving us to a larger table.

The servers were pleasant and the food excellent. Now that they’re open for brunch, we look forward to returning.

Each year we visit the Richmond area, dining here is a must! This has to be one of our favorite restaurants anywhere! I always seem to order the Mighty Frazier and always look forward to the delicious filet topped with crab! Others in our party had scallops and seafood linguine and thought those dishes were wonderful too! Of course we always have to start with the Devils on Horseback and the coconut prawns appetizers. Can't say enough good things about the food. Service has always been good here and compliments a great meal! Can't wait till next year!

We had dinner here for a birthday and the service was great. We had called earlier in the day and said we had reservations and inquired if we were able to bring a birthday cake. The host answering the phone greeted us on the phone by our last name and said that is absolutely fine. We ordered the fresh oysters and coconut prawns for appetizers and the lamb and the sablefish for mains. The oysters and prawns were fresh and delicious. The lamb was cooked perfectly and was a very healthy serving. The sablefish was good but not amazing. My fiancé and I both love sablefish and always get in on special occasions. One was cooked perfectly while the other was slightly over cooked. The accompanying vegetables were also a little over cooked. We would definitely go back!

We went to the restaurant for Mother's Day dinner. I understand it would be busy but little bit disappointed they didn't have any more oyster. I did order the mussels for my entrée but they were not fresh at all. There was not even half I could eat.

Would not recommend - service was poor and food quality was average at best. Not close to good enough for a supposedly fine dining establishment . Will not return - very disappointing .

The seafood did not match the price in quality and taste. Service was ok, but server made a promise and later delivered a different item without comment and only after questioned, he explained his manager did not authorise it. It's totally fine if he could not provide the initially promised item, but he should have let us know upfront.

Room was busy but not loud. Food was ok. The salmon wasn't anything special. Oyster presentation was sub par and no fresh horseradish, but an amazing price point in comparison to competitors near by. Crab legs were good and Thai seafood bowl good. Schnitzel looked amazing but we didn't have. Service was good, slow at times.. We will definitely go back, just wasn't as amazing as it was years ago!

So enjoyed Mother’s Day Brunch with my husband and two young adult boys. Great that this neighbourhood gem is now open for brunch on Saturday and Sundays. Loved their menu, we all had Eggs Benny, the Crab Cake Benny was amazing and portion size was good. Kent was our server, as usual he was very attentive and a pleasure. A definite MUST TRY!!!

I can’t find anything negative to say about this place. We were greeted at the door by Kent who was also our server.
The food was excellent as well as our server was first class.
Definitely recommend trying them out as we will be back for sure.

As an appreciation gift for the hockey coaches (and spouses), the team purchased gift certificates from Steveston Seafood House. Seven of us dined and everyone was very happy with this wonderful experience. Our waiter was Kent, he was very personable and took the time to chat with us and honour special requests. Dinner was so tasty, we had a variety of food but the Jambalaya (feature of the night) was the hit of the night. Overall a great experience and we will definitely come back again!

After taking public transportation from North Vancouver for my 65th birthday to be treated
by my close friend Sue, my expectations were high. I was skeptical when I walked in and
on a Friday night at 7pm it was virtually empty. It had a strong smell of fish. I
mentioned jovially to the woman seating us that it was my 65th! no acknowledgement.

The prices were high, but thats okay as long as the quality is there. We shared a ceasar salad.
the romaine was limp, and the creamy dressing was too thickly put on and virtually no flavour.
I did ask for extra anchovy since we dont eat pancetta, but it was not available.
I had the scallops which were 38.00. The meal arrived tepid so I sent it back so I could have it hot. The meal was tasting, but not worth 38.00.
There was no ambience in this venue, and no acknowlegement of the special birthday.
I think the require a major makeover both in the kitchen and out front.
So disappointed.

Service was great. The appetizers were tasty. I ordered the wild salmon, it was dry and I didn't want another one so I opted for the seafood salad which was amazing. The right amount of seafood ratio to the greens. I would come back and try out their other menu items.

My husband and I took friends here for dinner on Saturday night. Since I know the chef, I had told her the time we were coming. When we got settled she came by our table and spoke to us about our likes etc. I am on Weight Watchers and she wanted to know how I would like my chicken done. Our friends said it was the best prime rib and seafood salad they had had since trying out many local restarants. They are looking forward to returning for another tasty meal. The 3 hours we were there everything was wonderful. The owner, the chef, the waiter, the food. Overall a wonderful evening. Thank you.

Unfortunately, the service was slow that evening. I found the food server sort of neglected us. I had to call her over to get a glass of wine and we never did know what the "feature of the day" was. We seemed to be "tucked in a corner" so maybe that was the problem. Never had that problem before and I have been going there for years.

We have not gone to Steveston Seagood in 15 years. We hard that the food had improved and worth visiting. It was a Tuesday so not too busy but service was attentive and recommendations were spot on. We all had seafood and it was very good. I had a Thai Seafood and while it didn’t have the characteristic coconut flavours or Thai spice, it was a very good tomato base. We will return for sure.

My husband and I met another couple at the restaurant to celebrate the first day of Spring. We reserved our very favorite table by the window, and in a partially enclosed area. The server was attentive, but not intrusive, he definitely is an experienced waiter. We all had different orders, and everyone was happy with their choice, and our wine selection.

The starters we ordered (shared platter, clam chowder, oysters) were generally very nice and good value for the price. However disappointingly, the mains (fillet mignon, special salmon and schnitzel) were all very dried, particularly the steak which we ordered medium but it came very much over cooked and dry. Same with the salmon and schnitzel. The seared Hokkaido scallops were fortunately very nice.

Food was quite good, except the bernaise sauce was so salty I had to scrape it and the unidentifiable crab off. The veggies were perfectly cooked and served piping hot. My wife said her halibut was perfect. The seafood salad was again okay, not near enough seafood to qualify it, but as a salad with a seafood garnish it was fine. The service was excellent, and made the meal and is probably what will bring us back again. I would like to see another steak or two for options. Filet is not my favourite.
