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!

    Food at dinner time was excellent. Breakfast time was mixed - brilliant scrambled eggs, awful potatoes. Service was lively and friendly; but bill calculation and willingness to take back an item which was missing a vital component fell short of expectations. I would come again, but will now check my bill carefully.

    We waited 20 minutes at our table before anyone came to take our order. Our entrees lacked flavour and the $9 buns were dry. The evening was lackluster. The only saving grace was that a waitress not assigned to our table noticed us and decided to look after us for the evening.

    Food was great and portions were filling. Try the smoked meat sandwich….better than in Montreal! Only criticism is, for a brewing company, they had no beer selection on tap! Otherwise we enjoyed the experience. Visiting from Nanaimo.

    I would have given. 3.5 overall but 4 was close enough. We really liked the food but noticed the paella came with very little rice. When we asked for more they couldn’t give us a reason why they didn’t have any to give us. No other options were given either. My boyfriend wanted chicken on his pasta but they don’t serve it. Just kind of odd . The ambience was really nice though.

    The food was very good without being great. The halibut dish was tasty, but a little small, and would have benefitted from some green vegetable along with the potatoes. The steak was fine, well-seasoned and juicy; but not really worth what I paid for it. The French fries that came with it were excellent, but again, for that price, it was an odd pairing. The service was top-notch, with the host and server being very pleasant and accommodating.

    It was a special birthday. They gave her a paper card that said happy birthday. That’s it . We were a few minutes late for the reservation because of a power outage and they gave our table away. Not very helpful or understanding at all and they were not fully booked. Disappointed

    We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Dockside. While we enjoyed our main courses of lamb and duck, there were a couple of misses. Nine dollars seemed way out of line for a bread basket containing four small white rolls, and the arugula salad contained very little of the featured additions. Fortunately Mario’s blackberry and lemon sorbet ended the meal on a high note.
