The chef has created a menu that will accomodate singles or, better yet, couples or groups as the menu includes many "plates" that can be shared between diners and the dishes are inventive and delicious!

Not bad. It’s realy a pizza place with a few other things. Not really what I expected. Probably crowded in summer time because of the setting.

An employee at our hotel told us about this restaurant. When we first arrived at the restaurant we were a bit concerned as there was no one around to take us to our table. However, within ten minutes a very nice hostess came by, apologized for the delay and Seated us. We were impressed by the variety of entrees and an attentive waiter took our orders as soon as we were ready. We started with a very fresh and flavourful shrimp stuffed avocado and salad. It shows on the menu as vegan but of course it’s not because it has shrimp in it - which we love. Most of the items noted as vegan are not truly vegan, so vegans beware. We also ordered the lamb which was perfectly braised and exceptionally delicious. The shrimp pacoras were crisp and full of exotic flavours.
We loved the homemade bread which was a wonderful, crusty rustica type.
We left 1909 with big smiles on our faces. We’ll definitely be back when we next visit Tofino.

Food was very good and offered unique farm to table options. The pizza was good but incredibly soggy which resulted I toppings sliding off. I would suggest the restaurant considers thicker tomato sauce which I believe would alleviate this problem. Service was very inconsistent and disorganized. I believe they were short staffed the evening we dined. Still the restaurant was far from busy and there needs to be a more organized way of providing attentive service. It took forever to get drinks delivered to us. I could not figure out what the problem was as the bar section was not extremely busy. I had a definite sense that more attention was paid to locals vs. visitors. Just my impression . Staff was extremely friendly

We ate dinner at 1909 while on holiday in Tofino, choosing the restaurant based on having seen a magazine article about the chef's farm to table philosophy and foraging background. The food was absolutely delicious, and our waiter Mike was knowledgeable and friendly. We were there on a cold and rainy night so couldn't really enjoy the view, but the restaurant was cozy with a fire. We would definitely recommend as a place for a great meal.

This is definitely a secret gem in Tofino — we absolutely loved our dining experience here. We ordered the chefs special (4 course dinner) and it was amazing!! All we can say is that the chef there really knows how to curate a tasting menu — everything was absolutely delicious. Our server Michael was really knowledgeable and very well-experienced; we really enjoyed his service. Whenever we find ourselves back in Tofino, we will definitely be returning to 1909 Kitchen.

The black cod and the steak were absolute stars of the night! My boyfriend said they served the best tiramisu he’s ever had — which says a lot because he always orders this dessert when we go out. We will definitely be returning to 1909 when we come back to Tofino!

Really wished we had a better experience here. The food was cold and tasteless. The waiter had zero interest in us. We could not wait to pay and leave. Very disappointed and we won't be back.

Great, romantic spot for dinner and LOVED our server, Curtis. Dan Hamhuis eats at my restaurant in Smithers, BC every Summer so I thought I should try out his newest venture:)) Will definitely go again when in Tofino next time!!

Went there during our Tofino vacation. Concept us to share food and this is what we did. Portions are not huge but sharing is a good option. We had 1 starter 2 pizza and 2 small share platters for 5 plus dessert and that was sufficient. Service was good and friendly. Downside was that due to a wedding party in the same day they did not offer a cocktail list, as bar was busy with wedding

We definitely liked the restaurant, but was surprised by the 'sharing of dishes', especially the main course when it is served in tiny portions - certainly not enough for two people to share! We actually thought we were being served an appetizer instead of it being the main course. It was a tasty meal indeed. We left the restaurant still hungry and we are small people.

The dining room scenery is fabulous? The kitchen and servers are not coordinated together. Half our party got their meal, then it stopped. We had to repeatedly ask for some of us to get our food. It was a busy weekend and I don't think they were able to handle it. Very disappointing has lots of possibility

Gerade wenn man mit der Familie oder Freunden unterwegs ist, ist das Konzept des Restaurants mit dem Angebot diverser Platten zum gemeinsam teilen toll. So kann jeder in den Genuss verschiedener wunderbarer Speisen kommen ohne heimlich "Räubern" zu müssen. Dies bringt gleich noch eine größere Gemütlichkeit und Ungezwungenheit mit sich.
Die Qualität der Speisen ist spitze. Vor allem die Nachtischkompositiov ist genial.
Die Lage des Restaurants direkt am Wasser macht es noch besser!

Good food, okay service (we spilled water, and waiter never cleaned it despite being alerted to it, just left the mess on the seat and floor beside us). Cozy, inviting atmosphere. We had share plates, which were delicious! But the dessert presentation was lacking -- it was served on a board, but the elements were cream based so it just smeared when we tried to taste it. The truffle infused cheese was incredible! I have to caution that it is extremely loud. Could have been the time of day (8 p.m.) but just something to keep in mind if you aren't into that.

We enjoyed an excellent meal at 1909 Kitchen. The menu is based on sharing plates - some larger, some smaller. We had plates featuring smoked salmon, lingcod and cheese and they were all delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. The waterfront location has lovely views and the tables are nicely spaced.
