Seafood Restaurant Tonight for visitors from Seattle

Went to Coast last night, Joe Fortes for lunch, C is having a private function this evening.
Looking for a great place for dinner tonight. Any ideas?

  1. King Crab at a Chinese spot? I hear Shanghai Wind/River (can't recall which is a real place) does a great one.

    1. assuming the time of your post on CH here is accurate - which seems to be about 2pm PDT on SAT ----- where did you go and what did you think?

      we are always big fans of the casual approach

      i have not looked at all your posts from prev days - in both SEA and Pac NW boards - so I hope on your north-south Cascadia (ie this part of WA and BC) journeys you have tried some places around Chuckanut Dr / Bellingham in WA State too. There is a board for that huge Pac NW region here on CH (from sea to Spokane, it seems) and you will find many Vancouver-based posters using that board too. (ie Cdn's who are familiar w/ both sides of the border here at the 49th) Thank you.

      1. Too late for the OP but Yew at the Four Seasons

          yes, i'd agree with Yew at the Four Seasons Hotel downtown Vcvr. Higher price point - certainly. Worth it if the budget is available? yes.

          for your future reference here in BC, we have this Oceanwise *Vancouver Aquarium - symbol on menus.

          I wonder if there are people in the trade who read this who can give any experience about it.

          ps to edit - add ... I agree with Joe Fortes - it's kind of old vancouver in this day and age tho the food is decent - and Coast - it works well too.

          next time, check out some of the smaller casual places and I'm thinking you will be pleased. Seagulls and seafood - kind of go together~

        2. Thanks to all. Went to West. It was great.
