Everything about Ferris' Upstairs was great. From the journey up the charming staircase to the outstanding food, it hit all the right notes. I look forward to being able to dine there again.
Amazing service - hosts and server were extremely friendly and welcoming, and the food was delicious as per usual!
The food and service was phenomenal, definitely would go back and recommend to others
Always fabulous flavours and ambiance!!
Delicious fresh shucked oyesters. The mushroom pate was to die for. We only did happy hour so cannot comment on the main menu but it looked pricey & not kid friendly. But that's ok - we were in it for the oysters and our table had 83 :)
Amazing food, amazing service!! Scallops are a MUST!
The service was attentive . Had beet carpaccio for appetizer very good. Could have used some bread. Mains were bouillabaisse described as containing fish and shell fish . It contained no fish and 2 shrimp the rest was mussels The broth was very tasty more like cioppino then bouillabaisse but very good. Bread did not arrive until meal almost finished. Excellent dessert. Felt a bit cheated on the main.
We love the service and the oysters. Our main dish was over cooked and one of the caesars was horrible. We have it a 3/5 stars for that reason. We will go back but won’t order anything except wine and oysters because we love the ambiance and the service.
New Years Eve dinner. The waitress advised us we had 2 minutes to get happy hour prices so we saved a lot from her tip. The food and service was excellent !
Very good service ,the server answered all our questions.
The food was a bit small for the price 3 scallops for $16.00
but very tasty.I would definitely recommend Ferris’s!
Mediocre at best, the oysters were definitely not fresh shucked, maybe shucked in the last 24 hours, but definitely not fresh. Definitely just a tourist place or for locals who haven’t learned better.
We ordered 4 starters which were very tasty but not very much food.
My second time here! We had raw oysters, the clam linguine, and the arroz meloso. Everything was fantastic and our server was extremely proactive and delightful. We had a great time and plan on coming back.
Excellent food and service enjoyed in a nice relaxing atmosphere.
The arancini, Pecan and mushroom pate, and striploin meal was delicious. However i ordered the seafood risotto ( i cant remember the name) and it was disgusting. I coudnt even eat it. My sangria was very watered down. I was dissapointed. We went for the first time for our anniversary and we wont go back again. It was also very loud. Our waitress was awesome though.
The items we ordered were all really good and different in a good way. We particularly enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates. Superb! The service was excellent.
Food is always excellent. Very current menu with delicious fish and seafood options.
Charming room, great ambience and terrific food. Alwats a must when I come to Victoria.
Excellent! The chefs made us a vegan pasta even though there is none on the menu, which was absolutely delicious and we greatly appreciated. Would be awesome to have a vegan appy and pasta on the menu, we love the ambiance and cocktails at Ferris’s Upstairs. Thanks again for the accommodation!
Delicious food in a great atmosphere with staff who are happy to serve your needs.
Am overall great experience
Great atmosphere; creative menu; friendly server. Bit pricey, but worth it!
Another fantastic dinner at Ferris' Upstairs. Love, love the scallop starter and the tuna crudo, which we shared. And the steak main was outstanding. Delicious comfort food with great service from Chelsea.
It was great and we will go again. Unobtrusive but prompt service. The value part...everything is so expensive these days....the pricing was certainly not out of line or anything....hard times everywhere I guess
Excellent friendly service. Food was okay. Did not get dinner I order despite my order being repeated several times when taken.
An excellent selection of creative seafood dishes, severed in a relaxed atmosphere.
Soup will be good specially when it’s cold outside thanks
Always one of our favourites in Victoria!
The food and service was great, one of our favourite places to eat.
Wonderful as always.
Love the variety of the menu. Excellent oysters. Will be back each time we visit the area.
This was my second time at Ferris Upstairs. The food was absolutely delicious with different twists to knock your tastebuds off! Service exceptional. Ambiance delightful. A wonderful little Victoria hideout! Loved it all.
Excellent dining experience! Service was great and this place should be commended for the quality of the food that’s brought to the table! We will be back for sure!
The food was fantastic! We had oysters and appetizers and the main courses were great. Spanish / Mediterranean influence with west costs ingredients. IT was all very good!
Excellent food and ambience. One star off for a drink that took ages to arrive but that's a minor quibble - a lovely place to eat.
Absolutely incredible as always! Unique dishes, combining the most interesting flavours and textures. You can't find this type of dining anywhere else. Always excellent service to boot. Our absolute favourite restaurant and we'll always be back!
Good was amazing- we usually frequent Ferris’ downstairs, but thought it would be a fun night out to try upstairs. It did not disappoint- really, really lovely!
We love going to Ferris for dinner -- it's one of our favourite restaurants in Victoria. Delicious food, great ambiance, amazing oysters. Tonight we ordered several of their sharing plates and they were all delicious, and the roasted cauliflower was outstanding.
Visit to Victoria
My wife and I visited Ferris upstairs for the first time. Our experience was nothing short of amazing. The space has a very comforting atmosphere and the staff are top notch. But the star of the show was the food, both IOC us were thrilled with our meals and the Lamb Ragu is the best pasta I have ever eaten. We highly recommend visiting Ferris Upstairs. Enjoy
