"With floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach and mountain views, it's a great place to take someone who is new or a visitor to Vancouver. Perfect spot for brunch on a sunny day.
The food was good but potion size was a bit on the small for the price. We had reservations (which I strongly suggest) for noon on the family day holiday and found the room cold. The servers were able to remedy that by turning on the overhead heaters.

"We arrived a few minutes (8) later than our reservation and the hostess told us she would try to find a table for us. It was busy but there were a lot of empty tables. She came back and told us to wait for the hostess. We thought she WAS the hostess. Then she said we should take a seat. Which was confusing because there was nowhere to sit and we figured she should probably show us where to sit. She took off and came back with menus and sat us at our table. Maybe it was her first day. Our server arrived and made chit-chat while she poured us water. Then she left. A few minutes later, she returned and asked us for our drink order - which we thought probably should've happened while she was pouring our water. Maybe it was her first day. We laughed about this through dinner, which was nice, but it was crazy loud in there. Also, cafeteria-style dining does not make for a romantic setting. Sure it was a Saturday night and the noise didn't bother us, but it will be a while before we go there again. There are just too many good places in Vancouver to both going here very often."

"The hot crab dip was unbelievable! Excellent steaks, great view. There was a wind/rain storm the night we were there and we had to move tables because the window leaked, but the staff was amazing, and accommodating and by the time we finished desert the storm had passed."

"If you can get a seat by the window its great spot to people watch on a rainy or sunny day.
Lots to choose from on the menu for even the fussiest eater with a wide price range.

"We had a great dine out dinner here. Even though my expectations for quality are lower during dine out, the food (steak and lobster) and the service were both excellent. I hope restaurants prep their staff for dine out season so they are not resentful of customers. We were pleased. Thank you."

"This was our first time at the Boathouse at Kits Beach. What a wonderful experience we had.. The view was outstanding. It was raining and still enjoyed the Ocean setting. Brittany was our server and what a fabulous ambassador for the Restaurant. We would go back just because of her. We were there for lunch and had a very hard time deciding what to have, so many awesome choices. Between the four of us we had the Crispy Tacos, Crispy Coconut Shrimp, the Salmon Burger, and the Chop Salad with Salmon. All were delicious and the consensus was we would order those dishes again, but there were a lot of other dishes we decided we should try. We will be back. Dinner next time?"

"I can still taste the delicious mouth watering steak even today. Adding quinoa and asparagus with this meal rather than the roasted potato made it a lower glycemic meal...
Jessica and team were tremendously helpful, friendly and warm.
Definitely made this step into a healthy lifestyle living for my husband, one to remember !!!"

"We chose the resturant because we had friends visiting from Kelowna. We sat by the window, for the view. It was very cool, the lighting was too low to be able to read the menu. Three of the dinners were delicious, however mine Tuna was disappointing. The Tuna was cool and the first few bites it was very dry. The rest of the dinners were very good, steaks and the lobster pasta."

"Our family was really looking forward to a special evening at the Boathouse. So disappointing! The restaurant was really dark (in the corner where we were sitting), the food was so so, and the service wasn't much better. Wouldn't recommend the restaurant and won't be returning. The view of the harbour, however, was spectacular."

"The DineOut menu was definitely worth it! Steaks were cooked to perfection, and the rest of the food tasted amazing. We had a window seat, and the view was also beautiful. Only complaint I have is the overhead heater by the windows. It was super warm under it, but when it turned off it was nice and cozy. Great experience!"

"Positive experience for dineout lunch. Price was good, didn't even charge for water or kid's milk. Also waiter checked out my spouse's steak, which was unfortunately well done although it should have been medium. They suggested to bring new steak or take 5 dollars from our bill. Creme brulee was a bit disappointment otherwise everything was great and food tasty!"

"The Boathouse at English Bay was always a destination for us but the service and food slipped so much that we have not gone back for a couple of years. We decided to try the Kits location as the view is great and it's right on the beach. The food was very good and the service was excellent - We're coming back in the spring when we are back out to Vancouver!"
