After a less than 3 hour flight from LA, we landed in Vancouver. That was nice! Our first night’s dinner was at Blue Water Cafe. I had made the reservation the previous week. I would definitely recommend reservations at this place as it was packed on the Monday night we dined there.
The table was not ready so we sat at the bar and got a drink, to wait. I asked if we could have a booth and the hostess said yes.
The bartender was a wee odd but made a good negroni with a local gin. They kept trying to get us to order our entire dinner at the bar, which I did not want to do as the bar was a bit loud and I wanted something more quiet. We had to go back to the hostess and asked to be seated, as it seemed that she was not coming to us.
Once we were seated a booth, next to Laura Dern and her mother (I think it was her mom - looked just like her,) I realized why they wanted us to order at the bar. The poor waitress was being run off her feet. She was very helpful, though, and got the cook to cook my fish to a medium, as I HATE overcooked, dry fish.
We started with some local oysters, which I didn’t get a picture of. They were out of most of them - think there were only two local varieties. The smaller ones were better.
Got one order of salmon sushi and this yellowtail dish. Yellowtail was awesome!!
My husband and I both got local fishes. Both fantastic! Cooked to perfection! Both dishes were completely different and each was superb.
What’s a vacation without dessert? I wouldn’t know since I’ve never had one. We got chocolate and it was yummy!!!
Definitely would come back to this place! Seafood done to perfection! Also, they have late night dining! I think until midnight (last call) every night with a limited menu.
