I’m from the shore & this is my go to spot. The view is one of the best on the North Shore. Food is amazing. Sushi is so amazing here. Usually service is prompt, this last time on Sunday we waited quite a while for our server, we were all busy talking & catching up so it wasn’t so bad but if we weren’t then the wait would have been quite annoying. Most of the time it is not like this though.

I took my mom and family to The Beach House last Saturday evening for Mom's 80th birthday. The restaurant kindly accommodated my late reservation (made through Open Table) and seated us at a table that had a lovely ocean view. We were on the lower level of the restaurant as my mom has limited mobility but I noticed there is a second floor patio which probably has amazing views. The entire family was happy with their meals and our waitress and servers were fantastic. I highly recommend the Beach House for any special occasion or a special date night for two! Thank you Beach House for making it a very special evening that my Mom thoroughly enjoyed and that we will remember for years to come!

We were very disappointed that we were not able to have a window seat after asking for one. Four tables remained vacant the entire time that we were there.

Had over seas relatives visiting for my birthday and close family we all loved the ambiance, the excellent service, the setting with the cruise ships going by heading to Alaska is unique.
Food was good and everybody enjoyed the get together.We will be back.

Worst omelet I have ever eaten-like edible plastic-fresh eggs were not in the mix. Salad too oily. Fried bread unseemly, i.e., no finesse. Crispy fries not crispy i.e., soggy. My friend enjoyed her brunch "hash" very much. Music far too loud. Wine list was fine. Would not return there again.

Spectacular, irreplaceable location - right adjacent to the water in West Vancouver. Good but not over-the-top service. Best fish & chips in Vancouver. Decor is a bit dated and it can get noisy on weekends.

Great outdoor seating and nice cozy seating inside too. It started to rain just a little bit and the overhead outdoor awning is on an electrical switch - we were under cover in minutes! We all enjoyed our lunch - the seafood chowder, salad and pan bread combo was a huge hit for all three who ordered it. We'll be back!

As a regular at this restaurant I was extremely disappointed with the poor quality of the food during this brunch visit. The bread was stale for a number of the meals as were the poke nacho chips. The chowder tasted watery and it was difficult to identify the seafood. The server handled the situation well however the quality of the food appears to be declining which is unfortunate. The restaurant as a great atmosphere and has previously been very consistent. I do hope whatever is going on in the kitchen gets resolved so we can happily return to enjoy a meal here.

Waited 20 minutes for Patio after had a reservation with patio request-surprised to see 4 empty tables when we got out there-ours was a great table.Medium rare small 6 oz Steak was well done and peppercorn sauce was super salty, and with the mushroom side was getting up there at $46.50 plus tax and grat.Still a lovely place ,but great for light appetizers rather than small steaks.

Ambience on patio was wonderful. Service was OK but offier of coffee refills didn't come until we were about ready to leave. We came for Sunday brunch happy hour and at the reduced happy hour prices the value was good.

Beach House is our local - go - to restaurant. Love the view, love the menu and the staff. Also like the ability to reserve online. We reserved the space upstairs before and have another occasion planned with Victoria for my mom’s 90th Birthday . Only downfall is the lack of an elevator or lift for disabled. Maybe a chair that goes up the railing would be an affordable alternative .

Always a delight to dine at the Beach House: view and ambiance fabulous; generally great service and very good food. Their new recipe for sable fish wasn’t to my taste and our server wasn’t as attentive their norm. However, I do look forward to coming back again soon.

I found there to be several options on the menue that I would have been happy with. I chose the beet & pear salad with chicken..........the chicken had a nice crusty layer and tender inside, salad was very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive,even though we weren't drinking!

I look forward to returning for a birthday or anniversary.....lovely setting for a special occasion

Fabulous location on the seawall in West Vancouver. We managed to get a good view of the water. A lovely outside patio is also available. Great and friendly service. Food was delicious and a good variety offered. We enjoyed our dinner and went for a nice walk afterwards. Definitely a good choice for dinner for visitors and locals.

Spectacular, the food was really amazing. I think they may have a new chef because the food is even better than I remembered it. The menu has been changed a bit but my favorites were still on it. We had the most wonderful waiter named Jack, he gave us a glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary. He was very polite and was very attentive throughout the meal. We enjoyed a really wonderful evening and delicious meal, would recommend and go back in a heart beat.

Such a great location on the beach. We had a birthday celebration with a gathering of 6 and a 18 nth granddaughter. Staff very accommodating. Food and drinks were great and you can never get used to the view . Nice thing about being on the beach is that you can take your child out for a break for a few minutes during the course of a meal. Will be back for another celebration this summer.

Initially the online reservation system showed no availability 2 weeks prior to our dinner. A phone call revealed there was only tables for 12 (our party was 6). After it was suggested they break up the large tables, did we secure a reservation. Some of our dinners were great, some were not. Fresh halibut, sablefish and salmon were delicious. The fish and chips were unsatisfactory as the fish was encased in a thick greasy batter and chips were very ordinary and not hot. Service was good.

My husband and I had a fabulous experience for my Birthday on June 8th. The manager introduced himself and asked if it was a specail occasion..... My Birthday! Complimentary dessert which by the way was so yummy! The staff from entering to exiting were top notch!
The only thing we found a wee bit off was how the sound achoed throughout the restaurant which at times was quite loud. But hey... everyone was enjoying themselves! Cheers ...we will be back soon!
