Old Surrey Restaurant
The interior has a crisp, clean aesthetic that is enhanced by hardwood floors and the enlarged photos of historic Surrey that adorn the walls. There are five distinct dining areas on the top floor (including a cozy library) and a banquet facility downstairs. The cuisine is French with a splash of West Coast flare. A treat for new and seasoned guests alike are the signature dishes that are prepared and flambeed tableside.
The restaurant is family owned and operated since 1975. Since 1984 the restaurant has entered into a partnership with the family farm in Ryder Lake overlooking Chilliwack from the nearby mountains. The Old Surrey is well known for its free-range lamb and veal allowing customers to enjoy fresh organic ingredients.

Old Surrey has been an Anniversary destination on & off for 53 years. Always great food, presentation & excellent Service. Of course we will be back again
Absolutely amazing experience as always. We have been coming here to celebrate our big moments, from our dates early on in our relationship, to our engagement dinner & now celebrating our wedding. It feels like family! The food is incredible, and Nick is such a wonderful server. Can’t wait to keep celebrating milestones with the Old Surrey family. ☺️
Always excellent food and service. A nice place to go for a special dinner.
We are frequent guests at the Old Surrey, without a doubt our favorite restaurant. We were so happy when we got the notice that they were re-opening, we booked our table right away.
The 2 month break did not cause them to miss a beat, everything was as exceptional as ever.
So glad we can enjoy our times with the Old Surrey.

So nice to get back to an old favorite restaurant! Food and service remain outstanding and food value is unbeatable for fine dining. The chateaubriande special was truly a treat! Love the old school table side presentations. Staff seem happy to be there - love that.
We have been going to this restaurant for many years on my birthday. The waiters always provided excellent service. However last night I felt like I was in a bar. It was noisy and the server clearly did not have any fine dining experience. She was not friendly at all. We did not feel welcome. It’s time to change the tradition and find a different restaurant for my birthday.
Excellent food, well presented over a relaxing two hours. Fine dining at its finest
The meal was prepared beautifully and served at our table professionally. Flames and all. Quite a show. I would consider another visit and perhaps chose a different meal which would be equally as good as the chateaubriand.
Service fell down. Ghastly man at the reception- total mess with reservation. Cesar salad used to be the best; now it’s just stuffed with vinegar. All stuff changed, and not for the better. Missing the good old Old Surrey.😞😞😞
Wonderful evening with delicious food, service and wine.
Service may have been a bit spotty, as the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed, but that was more than made up for by the delicious food.
The food is great and service is superb. We usually come here for birthdays and our anniversary.
Wonderful meal, with attentive but very unintrusive staff looking after us. Pleasant ambience, and friendly service. We had a perfect dinner to celebrate her birthday, and she enjoyed it very much, remarking so several times. Thank you!
The meals tonight were delicious, cooked that meal to perfection.
My wife and I have enjoyed dining at Old Surrey for over 30 years. We have NEVER been disappointed! It is our favourite place for special occasions for just us; for get togethers with best friends; and celebrations with groups. Can’t be beat!
The aesthetic is beautiful, as if we walked into another era. Wine, books, & candles decorate the restaurant. The service is comfortable & the atmosphere provides an intimate dining experience.
This place is awesome. I wish I remember the person who served us but he was hilarious. Joking around with us and making us feel at home!! I’ll be definitely going back soon! Thanks again!
Always such a pleasure coming back here. The atmosphere, fantastic. The service from Tye and Jasmine amazing as usual! And the food as usual superb.
Jasmine and Ty were wonderful hosts/servers. We celebrated at Old Surrey Restaurant one year ago to the date for our wedding anniversary. We speak of making this an annual occasion. Thanks much for an enjoyable time!
I have been going to old Surrey Restaurant since 1981. Have never had a bad meal. Always felt taken care of. Original owners Val and Leslie are amazing. Son is now the owner. You will never have a bad meal or experience.
We go to the Old Surrey Restaurant 3 - 4 times a year - We always for the special and we have never been disappointed.
We are so glad this restaurant is open again. It has been run by a single family for a long time. There were 4 of us we had 2 seafood plates, a poached salmon and medallions of beef with prawns. The taste was superior, the service beyond exceptional and we bet after one visit you will make this your favorite place to go for dinner with friends and family.
Everything was perfect as usual. Food was delicious and the service was great!
Nice to see Val and Leslie helping out. Great people!
Enjoying table service and having friendly people greet and serve you are just two reasons why we have been going to the Old Surrey restaurant for the last 29 years. As far as the food goes....we have tried almost everything on the menu and have never been dissatisfied. Quite the contrary, everything is delicious!
Food is always very good. The staff are excellent. There is a decent wine list and a large variety of cocktails. Overall a great place for dinner,
Always a treasure. Memories. History. Family. Grateful. And almost through Covid!
Excellent evening, as always. Great menu, keen fun staff and a good wine list with some of our BC favourites.
Never had a bad experience, always a good meal. The best ceasar salad.
Totally great experience as usual. Food fabulous had the chateaubriand 4 course meal. . Staff and service was 5 out of 5. Great atmosphere and will be back for sure.
Always a delight to eat here. Food is very traditional, and we go, that is what we want. We would probably go to eat there more frequently if there were some vegan choices on the menu.
Love this restaurant!! Highly recommended for a special occasion! Definitely our favourite!!
Don’t want to comment on this restaurant as it the best hidden gem around always a good time
Lovely ambiance in an old building; excellent food and service keeps
bringing us back.
While the food was good, the ambience was noisy. Did not feel comfortable with their basically non existent Covid Protocols. There are no barriers between tables. Rooms were full. I did have to send my raw/cold scallops back and they were less expensive than a ceasar salad. $20 for a salad!! Been coming here for 25 years and it will be a while before returning if I win the lottery.
Especially nice that you serve the old fashioned delicious desserts like Crepes Suzette and Cerise flambé which was our wedding day diner dessert.
We were happy that we could bring our grandchildren, 12 and 10.
I think table manners and how to appreciate a well presented meal is part of a culture and should be part of education.
We were lucky that we reserved a table the last day before the Covid lock down of another 3 weeks and appreciated that we had a room for only the six of us.
Thank you for a pleasant evening.
The Old Surrey never disappoints. Always a wonderful experience to eat here. Staff are very attentive & food is delicious.
We loved our time at the Old Surrey Restaurant. It’s a fabulous place to celebrate and/or to indulge in superb food in a quiet, intimate, romantic atmosphere. We will be back indeed.
We went for my wife's Birthday. The staff were great. We had Caesar Salad, Chateaubriand and Cherries Jubilee. Everything was prepared at our table and was very good. This was our second time at here and we will be coming back.
Very good service and atmosphere, excellent food..
It was a wonderful experience to take my nephew there for his brunch birthday. The staff are very welcoming and friendly.
