Decided to try this place after a few hours of wandering around Granville Island markets. They had a $44, 4 course set lunch menu on offer, so in we went and ended up having one of the most loveliest meals we'd had in a restaurant...in ages. There was a great choice on the menu from which we had butternut squash soup, mussels, prawns, sirloin steak, salmon and sticky toffee pudding. Delicious food cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. Also because it was a Tuesday there was certain wines with 50% off!! We will definitely be going back and will recommend to anyone we know visiting Vancouver.More

Positives: great service. Nice choice on menu. Most of the food was good. Negatives: I had the salmon and it was very over done and dry, which for a place that specialises in fish was a bit of a surprise. The restaurant itself was also...quite cool, verging on cold. It's a nice atmosphere and view, it was pleasant but nothing great.More

We have been to the Vancouver Fish Company three times. 2017, 2019 and 2023. We always had the large seafood platter. See the inflation on the pictures. So the next time we will be in Vancouver, the plate might be empty.

My husband and I shared the seafood platter! There were crabs legs, lobster, oysters, mussels, and so much more. We were provided with special utensils for getting all of the meat out of the shells. We sat on the patio, great view of the harbour....Service was outstanding Would go again.More

We were seated on the patio - after a few minutes we noticed mice running around everywhere. We didn’t want one crawling on us during dinner so we asked to move inside. Emily was our waitress - inside and out but the move seemed to...upset her. Every one around us arriving after us received their food before we did. We waited more than an hour - this did not seem the norm but we were told they are working as fast as they can. Would not go backMore

Happy Hour Review Decided to spend the day in Granville Island, lots to see, eat and do here. It was around 4pm and we were down for Happy Hour, walked past this place earlier in the day and noticed their menu! We were promptly greeted...by 2 hostess and asked if we preferred in or out, well it was a beautiful day in Vancouver so we wanted out, plus the view of the harbor was quite beautiful. Here’s the HH Menu 3-5pm Sips House wine red/white Draught Beer Highballs Bites Oysters Prawns Mussels Halibut bites Prawn Cocktail Caesar Salad Mains Wild Salmon Seafood Linguini Striploin We were still full from lunch so we opted for the Oysters and Mussels both absolutely delicious the mussels were Salt Spring Island mussels served with chorizo and creamed leeks all this needed was a beautiful piece of crusty bread to soak everything up! Oysters was refreshing, light briny taste with a hint sweetness!More

Hostesses were great, friendly and sat my I and my preteen child fairly quickly. For reference, we are Asian. Our experience afterwards was borderline racist (I’ll give our server Natasha the benefit of the doubt). The first thing she said to me was, literally, “Do...you have covid?” 🤯 Server: Do you have covid? Me: Excuse me??? Server: Do you have covid? You’re wearing a mask and I don’t see people wearing them anymore. Do you have covid? Me: stunned silence Comes back after others arrive. Server: So I asked (presumably her colleagues), and was told that asking if you have covid is considered offensive, so I’m sorry if you were offended. I guess it’s cultural. [Puts her palms together and sort of bows] Me: more stunned, stony silence (in my head I’m screaming WTF!!) When I went out for supper, wasn’t expecting to have to explain casual racism to my daughter so suffice to say we will not be returning.More

We had outdoor seating by the water. The fish was well cooked and dishes were innovative. Everything tasted good. Portions are average, smaller compared to US restaurants.

When the staff know I am ordering a happy hour menu, she seemed trigged. She leave my table immediately even though I am not finish my order yet. The next time she come to my table is 20mins after with my drink. I was disappointed...that when you provide a happy hour menu, but your staff seems not pleasant when I ordering it. I call for my bill after I got my drinks . I waited at least 15mins, and she had time hang for hanging out but no giving me the bill. At the end I need to check out the bar and ask others staff for assistance.More

Excellent food and service, lovely outlook over the harbour. The tempura prawn starter and fish & chips were both absolutely delicious. Casual but all well presented. Highly recommended
