This is how our evening at the Boathouse in New Westminster went for our friend's 40th birthday dinner: - Chattering at the hostess station with the hostesses and the servers who didn't want people seated in their areas. This was not exactly the welcome we were expecting. - An unexplained delay in getting seated in a fairly quiet room and... More

Worst service I've experienced in a very long time. Was the only table in the place, another walked in after us. Server brought us out drinks then ignored our table. I had to ask the hostess if we could order anytime soon, after 20mins of the server waking by us with no regard or even eye contact. Hostess ended up... More

Good food for the happy hour price but it is limited on choices. If they added more appies onto the happy hour list it would be a lot better. Don't get me wrong, the food is good just limited on the appie list for happy hour prices.

Excellent food , service, and location. Having dinner and a river view makes it more of a romantic evening. The server is constantly checking up on how you are doing. Very nice atmosphere...

My friends and I went to the boathouse for dine out vancouver. We had a reservation which we ended up having to wait a long time for. I understand it was busy but we felt like they had forgot about us, I think we waited 30 mins or so. The food was good but our service was horrible. My friend... More

The New Westminister BC Boat House Restaurant was close (attached) to our hotel. Our food was fresh and properly prepared...cooked to perfection as ordered. We were sat at a table twice our needs and so loved that extra elbow room. Our table was facing the water and so the view was extraordinary pleasant. The staff was experienced and well uniformly...

Not too impressed with a tiny bowl of soup for $9, but the coconut shrimp was pretty good and somewhat fair price. No one in the restaurant at 2 o'clock pm so service wasn't great. Waited a long time to see anyone to be seated and also for the bill.

Service and dinner were both excellent. We were seated at a table by the windows and it was a beautiful night to be able to see the river and lights. There was not one food item that we did not enjoy and the service was very attentive but not annoying. A great dinner and evening.

When first opened, this was a high end restaurant to rival those in downtown Vancouver. Last week's visit confirms they continue to rely on their reputation from days gone by. Portions get smaller and smaller. Might work for a first date, but after that..............
