Northwest
Located on the waterfront where Granville Island faces the city, guests can enjoy panoramic views across False Creek to the world-famous cityscape of Yaletown and beyond to the mountains of the North Shore.

The open dining room is relaxed yet refined, wrapped in spectacular floor to ceiling windows, while the lounge offers warm intimate surroundings for evening cocktails.

The award-winning seasonal patio (patio closed October to March) catches sunlight from morning to afternoon and is an oasis of calm, disturbed only by the occasional sound of boats making their way along False Creek.

Whether dining inside or outside the views are stunning!

    We came here for a dual birthday celebration and had a great experience. We sat on the patio and had a beautiful view looking over the inlet. The food was incredible and our server Michael was charming and knowledgable. We would highly recommend dining here and we will certainly be back!

    I didn't quiz my dinnermates but my dinner (Halibut) was expensive and just okay. The fish was cooked very nicely and was fresh. The sauce had very little flavour and appeared slightly curdled. There were just a very few cubed vegetables. I then ate half of my husband's Caesar salad because I was hungry. The salad was bland as well. It need more garlic. We go there was of the setting. Were it not for the setting, we would not likely go as the food is okay but expensive.

    We were really happy with our brunch experience. The only wrinkle was the almost 15 minute wait to get seated, even though we had a reso but I do understand they it might be a staffing issue.

    We gave it a four because even with the main course items, it was still a little small. Everything else was perfect. Our waiter was super helpful and very nice. The ambience of the whole restaurant was worth it in our opinion.

    We went for a birthday dinner. Everyone was so nice and they made my mom feel special about her birthday! The food was so fresh and yummy. I had the paella and it was very filling! Everyone was satisfied with their meal and would come back again!! They also gave us a free dessert for my moms birthday :) I would definitely recommend sitting outside in the patio if possible! I loved how it was literally dockside

    I had the NY steak and it was really good. The patio was awesome, so glad we got to sit out there! Service was not good and we waited along time for drinks, water, cutlery. We would have stayed for more drinks and dessert but our reservation was up before we could get that far.

    Overall it was a nice meal. Drinks were quite good, food was above average although whomever made the Paella should give the recipe a second look. It was overly tomatoey and smelled weirdly fishy. We found ourselves looking around for our server more than once, but not for too long. We'll come back. The patio and view were lovely.

    Loved the cool venue, so refreshing, food fantastic. Our poor waiter had too many people to look after, and the music was really unpalatable. Soft jazz would've been perfect. Otherwise such a perfect place on a hot night.

    Great service. Checked on in timely manner. Our server Erin was great. I asked her to recommend me her favourites and she took time to go through the entire menu and explained each dish amazingly. Food was good. Scallop was delicious, the cheese was bit on the saltier side (some may love that! Not for me) and spaghetti was good.

    I love the Dockside patio - great feel and view, and the food and service are great. But I won't go back until they remove the blaring, jarring live music. Last night it was bad classic rock sung to an overly-mic'd steel string acoustic that drowned out conversation. Droning Red Hot Chili Peppers - really? I had a guest from out of town and we were both horrified. This has always been one of the best patios in Vancouver, but Dockside isn't cheap and I would not take guests there again until assured the music has been removed. That's one patio that really does not need music - the view, the passing boats, the birds - it was always lively and perfect without music, especially amplified music. I'm a music lover but here it's not needed. So disappointed.
