Located at the foot of Lonsdale, in the heart of the historic Shipyards, our restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating with breathtaking views of the Burrard Inlet and downtown Vancouver.

    Good food but very slow service caused us to miss happy hour. Did not honor happy hour price, which would have been the right thing to do. Later ordered a dish at full price that never came, but hey at least they did not bill us that one!

    Great food and service. A bit noisy in there but that’s the type of place it is. Great space for larger groups and events!

    Our server was lovely and we had a great birthday for my 8 year old daughter. I’m ashamed to say we didn’t catch his name but he did have an Irish accent that’s all I can remember. Food was terrific and we would definitely go again as a family.

    Service was wonderful and food was good! Except my potato cubes are a bit burnt! Otherwise, good place to hang out and love the interior decor! Overall, very enjoyable and a great place for brunch!

    Wonderful ambiance, food, and service! Front host staff were welcoming and attentive, and our server, Chris, was AMAZING! This was our second time here in a month and on both occasions we sat in Chris’ section. As a former restaurant manager, Chris is a gem so don’t lose him!! We did sit with empty drinks for a bit at one point but we noticed how busy he was so didn’t mind. As busy as he did get, he always had a smile on his face, and never tried to rush us. Food was delivered fast and was delicious. Thank you to everyone. We’ll be back soon!

    The location is lovely - the staff on the door were not! We had a reservation but were asked to stand against the wall and wait for nearly 15 minutes … meanwhile people arriving after us were being seated. I had to speak to the person on the door again to remind them we were waiting and had a reservation.. at that point we were seated. The food was just ok. Burger was not hot - our server was excellent- the staff on the door however the place down

    The hostess was very rude and although we booked a patio table in advance, she called and said they would not be able to do that and first come first serve only. Then same woman checked us in and was seating us inside when patio had dozens of empty seats. When we asked she made us wait then assigned us to a table over the concrete in the cold while 8 empty tables were open in the sun overlooking the water! She gave us a table in the sun when we pointed it out. Overall, tables overlooking the water looked to be selectively given out to younger folks who walked in without reservations and seemed like older (over 50 set) appeared to be relegated to the shade overlooking g the concrete! WTF?!

    Food was great although the shrimp appetizer was extremely salty. Server was distracted and seemed to forget we were there in several occasions.
