    Lots of people standing around. Dirty plates on our table for 20 mins. Servers coming by filling water glasses half full and still not taking plates away. Lack of leadership and direction by the instructor. We have attending many of these dinners at both campuses and have never been disappointed…until now. We will not be coming back to Dunlop House. Food quality was excellent. Ambience was ok. Service was shockingly bad.

    Such a great concept. Wonderful teacher, and extremely motivated students, mostly foreigners. Food was good to great. The fish is often so good it is almost as fresh as fish that I catch myself. There’s always a little surprise in addition to the ordered food. Love it here

    We enjoyed it very much. My meat could have been hotter it was just warmish. The appetizer I found abit too hard to chew for me, however my daughter found it was fine for her. Both desserts were very good.

    Our server worked hard and did a tremendous job. The food was perfectly cooked, hot and delicious. The host and hostess at the front door were welcoming and kind. Dunlop House was spotlessly clean. We attended dinner on October 11, 2023. I highly recommend Dunlop House. You will not be disappointed.

    My husband and I had a beautiful dinner together. The food was delicious, plated so elegantly in a historic building in our beloved Victoria. The students took their jobs so seriously and their instructor that over saw the evening was kind, friendly and full of historical information about Dunlop House.

    Amazing attentive service. The presentation was very thoughtful and elegant. The rockfish was incredibly fresh, almost as though it were caught that same day (it couldn't possibly be since rockfish is closed to fishing). The menu comes as a fixed menu with 2 choices for appetizer and dessert, 3 choices for entree. No wonder it is almost impossible to get a reservation here.

    What a fantastic teaching facility! The student servers were attentive, courteous and friendly! The food was quite delicious and well presented, and they even provided me with a gluten/free dessert that was not on the menu! It was our daughter’s birthday and they all signed Happy Birthday in their various languages on a beautiful card that she would like to keep! Definitely a wonderful experience!

    The students did a very job of serving, and the food was pretty good. It was the last night, so it was crowded and very noisy, but a good noise as everyone was enjoying the evening...they did run out of two of the main courses which was not good...especially as it was only 6pm....

    It’s a student run restaurant so there were some shortcomings.Our wait person was very nervous and at times overly solicitous.I don’t think they were ready to wait on tables just yet. The entree I chose came with a barley risotto instead of rice and it was pretty tasteless with a weird texture.The profiteroles for dessert were dry even though cream filled. Other than that the lovely dining room and good company I dined with made up fir the shortcomings!

    The front of house staff were very professional, helpful in describing selections, accommodating with special requests (like mint tea) and kind and generous. The birthday card for my husband was very kind and we are cherishing it with all the international signatures! A terrific touch that earned our loyalty. The kitchen staff prepared excellent dishes - delicious with wonderful attention to presentation. The combination of tastes on the palate were lovely. We were amazed by the quality of each course, served with such care. It was a memorable birthday celebration. Our gratitude and thanks. We wish you all much success in life and will be sure to tell our friends about Dunlop House.

    Food is always excellent and I love watching new servers learning their skills. My partner is extremely hard of hearing even with hearing aides, so when as I asked our sever to turn down the piped-in music, they quickly complied. A pleasure always.
