Only one of the three in our party was asked to show covid vaccine and ID, which we found odd. (We entered at different times, but we’re seated at same time after gathering in lobby).
And I was a bit surprised that restaurant was at full capacity, absolutely no distancing at all anymore. I’m not totally up to date and haven’t been out in awhile, but was surprised.
Waiter was great and food delicious.

Requested a window/view seat and although there were multiple other tables reserved by the windows, ours was not. Instead we sat by the bar. Further the hostess did not attempt to remediate it, just sat us down and walked away.

Our first visit to the Beach House. It was recommended to us and we had an outstanding experience. The menu focused on seafood, but there were items for every taste and budget. I had the Arctic Char over white bean ragout as I'd had a similiar dish in Tofino with Halibut. The Char was suburb--moist, delicate and rich flavour in the ragout. There is an extensive wine and cocktail list. It was a rainy, dark night for our visit so we must come again in the summer for an outside patio table overlooking the water.

Unless you live in West Vancouver, this might be considered a hidden gem. Beautiful restaurant set right on the water, with a lovely sea wall to walk off those calories. Food was outstanding, very friendly staff, lovely atmosphere with a spectacular view. Had no idea about the Beach House until a friend told me about it. So glad that I went! I will be a returning patron :)

This is a go-to lunch spot for us, mainly because it’s local and a great location right at the pier and seawall. As for the food, it’s nothing special, but the service is first rate. Prices are as you’d expect for the location.

Excellent service and great ambiance.
Just think that the lunch menu is getting to be a little over the top in terms of lighter options. I suspect they don’t get a lot of lunch orders for the seafood entrees and large pasta dishes.

They were more than willing to please with our changeing of our seats because of a loud table near us, and adapting menu choices.
A memorable experience.
Thank you.

Our waitress was friendly, but not very attentive. We were finished our meals before a second cup of coffee was offered. We all asked for milk with our coffee, but she brought a milk and a cream. And no further milk with the 2nd cup. The biscuits were not heated through. We asked for butter, but none came.
3 of us had the Beach House breakfast and the fourth, the avocado Bennie. The potato pave was outstanding.

When you go on a damp November evening ask to be seated inside. The heated patio is very nice but is not sealed so is very cold and draughty when the wind blows. We moved to another table in the area when we requested but it was still chilly

Wouldn't seat us earlier even when there were many empty tables due to staff shortage. Booked a table with a view and was not seated with a view and had to ask to change tables. Staff who served was really great and accommodating and food was amazing. Was expecting a restaurant such as this to give a birthday dessert at no cost but did not. Reservation had indicated birthday but they were not aware.

Unfortunately we had to return the pasta dish twice because it was not hot. The third dish was tasty and warmer than the earlier plate, but not as hot as we would have expected. Staff were apologetic and the Manager "made it right", however, we like hot food served hot and it is a requirement for food safety.

This is the upscale restaurant of the Earls chain, but we have better food at the regular Earl's on Bellevue Avenue in Ambleside.

In addition to this, I bought a gift card and had expected a bonus as described on the website, but I was told that this only applied to the Ambleside restaurant. This false advertising was also brought to the attention of the manager, as was the fact that I was unable to complete the gift card purchase on line.

A disappointing return to this venue all in all.

We had decided to visit the Beach House with friends from out of town as it's one of our favorite spots on the North Shore. When we made the reservation we were told we would be sitting outside but on a covered patio that was suppose to be an extension of the restaurant and would be warm. This was a big disappointment as the space was definitely not set up accomodate the wind and rain. The side panels of the outside plastic walls continually opened to let in the weather. We saw some patrons leave. Even the staff commented on it. With blankets we made the best of it however part way through the night I could see empty tables in side that were not filled when we left. At no time were we offered a table inside? Sorry for a $300+ meal sitting in those conditions was not acceptable. Will think twice about returning until summer - this is was the best night. Staff were very polite and the food was good. - Just wish the Manager on duty had been more attentive.
