1253 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Advice: Make a reservation thru Open Table. If someone in your party is celebrating a birthday tell the Manager not the server.
My family and I had dinner recently and were delighted with the great menu of seafood as well as many other selections Large and spacious Dockside has one of the best views in the city, situated on Granville Island overlooking False Creek, the marina and the downtown core. After looking at the menu we decided to skip the appetizers. For our Entrees we enjoyed the Grilled Wild Sockey Salmon ($26) with four citrus vinaigrette; Roasted Wild Pacific Halibut ($28) with herb crust, dill beurre blank and Oven Roasted Alaska Black Cod ($28) with katchumber salad and raita.
For Dessert, we enjoyed the Almond Pear Tart ($9) with green tea ice cream; Deconstructed Tiramisu ($9) coffee chocolate cake with brandy marscarpone cream and the Pistachio Cardemom Gelato ($9) with poached apricot.
The restaurant missed the mark on the service aspect, I reserved thru open table in advance telling them that one person in our party was celebrating a birthday. When we sat down we made a reference to the birthday and the server never even acknowledged it neither did anyone refer to what was indicated in the Open Table reservation. I was surprised as to how good the food was in relation to the poor service.
