If price is no object, I don't think you can do better than Blue Water Cafe. Coast is not much cheaper but is also a nice place to go. I've also had a few good meals at the Salmon House in West Vancouver.

Rodneys, but it's a little bit more casual.
Sandbar
Monks

I'd pass on Boathouse. Shitty as EFF!

are you reffering to coast restaurant?

price isnt really an option...its just dinner and a few drinks so its easily gonna be under 200$.

from the ones you guys have listed, how would you rate it romantic wise?
obviously we'd be dressed up so id like to at least eat in a place that will have the right vibe to it.

from the choices listed so far, blue water and coast seem to be the best ones, but im still open to find more restaurants, if it has a great view, then even better!!! my last resort plan is the revolving tower restaurant.

no...C Restaurant. Been there for years. Owned by the same person who owns RainCity Grill on Denman. Just excellent fresh seafood. Park on Granville Island, take the little ferry over if you like to make it more romantic? It's right on False Creek and you can literally take 25 steps into the water...

Romance wise it's there in the upper echelons. Like I said take the little ferry over, buy her a flower at Granville Island Market or some chocolates. Take the Ferry over. Order some Sparkling wine...Take a walk on the seawall after. Bring a good long coat for the colder nights. Trust me on this.

C Restaurant

Sandbar is a good one. Nice view if you sit on the upper level, and its on granville island so you can stroll around and enjoy other overpriced tourist traps

Boathouse isn't bad for everyday food but not somewhere you want to go for a special occasion .. food's not very memorable lol

You can get great seafood at tons of good non seafood specific restaurants. L'abbitoir is a good special occasion restaurant, and some of the best food in the city. Its also reasonable if you don't get too crazy with the wine. Same with la Quercia. Amazing italian in kits. Other than C, and blue water, the places mentioned are pretty run of the mill food quality wise, with a bit higher prices than they deserve. Except the boathouse. That place is a steaming shitpile. Steaming like garbage on a summer day in Toronto. I think the whole experience of the ferry from granville island over to C for dinner though is a pretty genius "event" type idea.
