Absolutely the best meal we had in Victoria. Excellent service. The grilled calamari was best I’ve ever had very delicate with a lovely flavor, not fishy. I had the clams/ muscles which were fantastic and my hubby had a a fish dish (sorry can’t remember the details) but it was great. So glad we had dinner here. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Well presented excellent food. Excellent friendly professional service from Madison. Our table (in the corner near the entrance ) was very draught and noisy from the slit like opening to the foyer. Why is the slit there? Despit that we had a very good meal and time. Thank you. D B Wooldridge MoreOpenTable Diner -
An absolutely amazing experience. We actually went two days in a row. The food was some of the best I’ve ever had and I’ve been fortunate enough to eat at some of the world’s best restaurants. Service was impeccable. All around fabulous. Highly highly recommend. Bravo to everyone at Finn’s!! MoreOpenTable Diner -

I have lunched many times at the Blue Crab and have never been disappointed. It is a favorite of mine. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Food was very good. They have updated the interior and it appears much cleaner and really nice. Although I booked through OpenTable, when we arrived they had no idea of my reservation. They suggested I may have booked st their other location. After checking my confirmation email, I had booked correctly at the Tillicum location. There seems to be some miscommunication between OpenTable and the restaurant. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Our dining experience was exceptional. Our table servers were attentive to everyone's needs, recommending options when food allergies were an issue. The seafood tower was outstanding. Our group are all involved in the commercial and farmed harvest of fish and shellfish. We know how fresh seafood should be presented and the chef and his team did not disappoint.

We love this restaurant. It is our go-to for anniversaries and special nights out away from the kids. We have had the same server for the last 3 years and she is great. Food is amazing as always and you cannot beat the views, best in Victoria. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The food was great, as was the service. The only reason I didn't rate as 5 stars in all categories is because they use a fragrance in the dining room. It is really strong and made me feel unwell. It is the only factor that would make me think twice about returning. That is really disappointing because I really enjoy the restaurant. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Excellent food and we enjoyed a very quiet breakfast on the deck. What a beautiful spot. MoreOpenTable Diner -
First time at OJs. I was pleasantly surprised by the brussel sprouts. I would rate it a top 5 for me. The serving plate was a bit large for the amount though. Lettuce wrap with chicken wasn't anything too amazing. Probably won't order that again. I would definitely go back though and have different dishes. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the Tom Yum soup. Wasn’t overly busy so the food came quickly. Staff is efficient, albeit too business-like. They were nice but not engaged in a friendly manner. All business. Still, I would recommend Mango Thai as a yummy place to eat at a reasonable price. One thing is they did not seem have my reservation or know what open table was for booking reservations. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I love coming here. The food is always great as well as the ambiance. The staff aims to please. Our table was not the best placement. I made 2 reservations a long time ago. The one in Feb/March was cancelled do to the snow. I was very disappointed it wasn't offered at another time. The table we had this time was not ideal. I was looking right into the kitchen, where there was a lot going on. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Overall this restaurant was good. Their homemade pasta was tasty but salty, cooked al dente but the texture was tough to chew. The martini was a skimpy pour or they should serve it in a smaller glass instead of a larger one. The presentation made the drink look like it was someone else’s drink left overs.

We had a very enjoyable evening, with delicious food in a cosy booth. The only complaint we have is that there was a draught coming from the fireplace and apparently the fire cannot be lit. Suggest covering it up as it was a bit cool for people on the end seats. MoreOpenTable Diner -
