    The food tastes great, it was just richer than my husband and I would like. We had the gnocchis and the salmon and both were covered with sauce. The cauliflower was delightful. Would have loved the salmon with less sauce or more on the side, and the gnocchis would have been better with less mushroom sauce all over, just overpowering. Our waiter Charlie was outstanding, very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine list.

    We had a great evening at 1909. The food was excellent and very unique and fresh. The staff were friendly And the manager Charlie helped us get the best table on the deck with an incredible view. The deck has a great vibe especially on a sunny afternoon / early evening. Highly recommend this restaurant. Amazing location.

    Very limited menu, halibut plate is $35. A beautiful piece of halibut but over cooked and dry. Very little else on the plate. I’m a small eater but was still hungry.

    Nice dockside setting with great views. Order 5 dishes to share for 4 people (Swimming Scallops, Halibut with squash, Prosciutto Focaccia, Fired Cauliflower and the Summer Salad). All selections were very tasty with exception of the Summer Salad. It seemed to lack much flavor. Also, the bottom crust of the Focaccia was a bit hard and difficult to cut with a regular knife. We had to ask for a steak knife to cut pieces to share. Service was good for the most part. Our only negative of our dinner was lack of utensils for sharing. If your menu consists of mostly share plate, the table needs more than the individual settings for each diner.

    Great views and service but limited gluten free options. If they had the granola marked gf on the menu it would be good and it would make a big difference if they had a separate fryer for gf items or an alternative.

    We were there for breakfast and it was horrible, service was very slow and when the food arrived the eggs were cold, Bacon very greasy and chewy, the potatoes were dry and overcooked and extra greasy and deep fried and there was a lemon seed inside of the coffee mug. It was very disappointing.

    Our waiter was friendly, courteous, knowledgable and funny. Our meal was delicious and we enjoyed the local offerings. Surprised that the resto ran out of olives for our martinis and would highly recommend that you purchase proper martini glasses. Enjoyed watching the beautiful sunset over the harbour. Would return happily in the future!

    Unfortunately we really did not enjoy our visit. Our server clearly did not want to be serving us, not even making eye contact as she walked by. We had to ask for everything, basically did her job for her. We are a big pizza family and this one just doesn’t hit. My husband’s pizza barely had any toppings on it and mine tasted like there was sand on it. After making a reservation, clearly indicating it was our 10 year wedding anniversary… nothing special was done, not even an acknowledgment. We won’t be heading back.

    Lovely but... a few suggestions would have made it a perfect evening for us. Firstly, the music was uncomfortably loud and no, we're not seniors. We're outgoing 28 year olds. Service was wonderful, but the prices were high for what we received. Had the flavors been strong, or apparent at all, the experience would have been worth it. We shared the Tuna, Sirloin (grizzle we couldn't even cut through), Salad, a beer and two cocktails. Both my husband and I left feeling short changed, with head aches and hungry. We then went elsewhere to get the rest of our dinner.

    We spent a wonderful evening on the patio at 1909, overlooking the harbour view, and enjoyed all of our dishes shared between four of us. The dishes included the Seafood Boil Up (two servings), Wild Mushrooms, Wood Fired Cauliflower, Smashed Potatoes, and Beets. They also have a very good wine list and beer selection. Everything was delicious, service was excellent, and the setting and view made for a perfect evening. We look forward to returning again and highly recommend 1909!

    We had reservations and were made to wait in a long corridor while people in front of us without reservations were seated. Once our wait was over, we were eventually shown to a poor table. The menu was significantly altered and smaller from what was advertised online. Additionally, the restaurant was out of two dishes. There was no acknowledgment of our wait or the severe confusion at the front of the restaurant. We were so dissatisfied that we left and got takeout from a different restaurant. Very disappointing considering how long in advance the reservations were made.

    Wow - We eat out quite a bit but we don't really write reviews - even for so so service and/or food since we understand most restaurateurs try hard. However, this was a first and really disturbed us. We were in Tofino celebrating our anniversary and made a dinner reservation at 1909 Kitchen. We were seated at a table that was in the direct sun and was uncomfortably hot. There were at least six other empty tables for two in the dining room, and we asked to be moved to one of those tables. The waiter seemed to take pleasure in telling us that we couldn’t move because each of those six tables had been specifically reserved by other couples. Six different couples reserved specific tables! - I did not call him a liar since it was not worth making a scene and ruining our evening. The hostess was not very helpful either. I really don't know why these employees were so difficult. We were not at all demanding. We did not escalate demanding to talk to the manager - really did not want to ruin our evening - there were other restaurants in town. I really wonder if it was and ethnic bias thing. Regardless, we left.

    The 1909 K+B is a ‘must visit’ whilst you’re in Tofino. It’s in a fabulous location in a small marina with views in to the Pacific. Watching the sea planes land and the local fisherman bring in their catches was great background to a relaxed and chilled out environment with spectacular, fairly priced food and wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly service from Cliondha and other staff members. We’d highly recommend and will be returning the next time we’re lucky enough to be in Tofino.

    Had amazing potential but our server dropped the ball. We were there to celebrate a 50th birthday. Other then when the host sat us, it wasn’t mentioned. Our food order wasn’t taken until 50 mins after we sat with only 2 check ins all evening. He said he had a larger table that was taking up his time. Would o go back? Yes but hopefully to a more attentive server
