Ferris' Upstairs Seafood and Oyster Bar
We went here for our anniversary! It was wonderful service and delicious food!
Happy hour - buck a shuck - amazing value. All the food was delicious. I would highly recommend it.
Amazing food. We had the salmon with risotto and paired it with muscles, it was one of the yummiest meals I've ever had. Would totally recommend.
Great food and atmosphere. Had the dozen oysters to start which were nice size and reasonable price. Dinner for 2 special is a really good deal with a good selection. All really great. Professional service.
Wonderful dinner for six. My husband loved the calamari and I loved the cauliflower starter. The polenta dish was fantastic and our guests loved their salmon, trout, pasta and duck. Super friendly service (Ben?). All of us left happy and full! We recommend and would go back!
Great food, but you shouldn't run out of fresh shucked Oysters by 6:45 pm!!!
Wonderful place that matches the rave reviews I've heard in the past. Extensive wine list and a menu focused on seafood - obviously not the place to go if you don't want that for your meal! The food was delicious, with reasonable portion sizes and pricing to match the quality.
Great food and service. Atmosphere was to our taste.
Cauliflower salad not acceptable— had to send it back— got refund— you should revamp it or take it off the menu
Tasty menu and great wine list!
Definitely hit up happy hour from 5-6, it's a buck a Schuck on their oysters. Mmmmmmm oysters.
It was so delish!!!
Very good dining experience in Victoria BC.
Excellent recommendations by server Kate who was gracious and personable. Try the Humboldt Squid if it is still available. Generous portions. Recommending this place to friends visiting Victoria BC
Shannon was an excellent server. She was engaging and friendly but not obtrusive. She made our anniversary meal special. We had never had Denman Island oysters and they were outstanding. We look forward to eating here again.
One of my favorites in Victoria. Been coming here every work trip. Never disappoints. Good quality ingredients, decent portion size and bold taste! We loved the ricotta dip with toasts, the squid is also a great appetizer. They have a four course meal for two for about $74! One thing I haven’t tried are their baked oysters!
There are better seafood restaurants in town with views of the water. Food was good, but not exceptional.
We had an excellent meal with excellent service.
I had arctic trout and my wife had linguini with clams and both were outstanding.
The waiter did an outstanding job.
Overall it was a very positive dining experience.
My wife and I in Victoria for a vacation and wanted fresh seafood. We found great service and great seafood. Coming back for happy hour oysters!
The cauliflower salad was incredible. I was there for happy hour and took advantage of the $1 oysters. The duck was good, but just a little dry. The service was fantastic!
This is an excellent restaurant with very fresh we’ll prepared dishes. I had the halibut and it was wonderful. Oysters on the half shell were fresh and very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Our favorite Victoria restaurant.
Busy Friday night, but they found us a quiet pleasant area.
Loved the whipped ricotta w honey & walnuts.
Then a tasty mushroom w cream raviolis starter.
We always order the warm roasted cauliflower salad--so well flavoured.
The warm 'smooth as silk' brownie w caramel & whipped cream finished off a most enjoyable evening.
Warm & attentive service as usual.
Attentive service and great meal
Pleasant meal, good service. Salmon was outstanding, oysters notting out of the ordinary
The food and service was very good. We shared a large green salad and had two orders of each kind of cooked oysters.Both were excellent. A very enjoyable evening.
We enjoyed our meal at Ferris, excellent food, served bij Michelle, who knows her business very well!
We had a great evening! Rachel and Willem, Holland.
Excellent food and great music in a cozy dining room. The food is very well prepared and consistent. Appetizers and share plates are very generous, I don’t need to have a main when I order 2 appies. I always order the fattoush and warm cauliflower salad, they are excellent! I’ve also had the whipped ricotta, deep fried smelts, and the Humbolt squid. My husband had the prosciutto wrapped long cod on lentils and my daughter had the crispy polenta - both garnered high praise. Add the great jazz and the original brick walls and you don’t need to go anywhere else!
We had a lovely experience at Ferris. Food was great quality and inventive. We opted for the four course set menu and did not regret it. The cauliflower starter was amazing, and we had the duck and cod respectively as mains. Service was friendly but not overbearing! Would definitely recommend.
It has become one of my favourite places to go for celebrating personal events. Always good food, service and atmosphere. My only comment for this visit was the food came too fast between courses which is the first time this has happened. We were a later sitting so no need to rush us for dinner, we were there 1hr and had 2 drinks and 3 courses. Other than that, we will always be back.
Raw Oysters were small but outstanding- sone of the seafood had a preservative taste-the lingcod was great but halibut was just okay-
Loved it! Oysters were delicious, tuna appetizer amazing and different, salmon and risotto wonderful. Spectacular meringue dessert. We could not have asked for better meal.
Service by Michelle was excellent. We all had a seafood dish and each was outstanding. Great wine list at very good value. So appreciate the choice of international wines that pair with the food and ones tastes.
Great fresh seafood and the cauliflower salad is a must have.
The bouillabaisse was extremely over seasoned with saffron and mayo.
Good food, but skip their steak. The seafood was very good and the dessert was delicious. Very nice ambience.
One of the best and most memorable meals we have ever had!
Good selection of Oysters done in different ways, vegetables were cooked to perfection, only issue was the Strip Loin Steak, is served between 1/2 and 3/4" thick could have been much better. Was like a low priced cut which is really beneath what they advertise this location to be. Would I return.....for oysters yes. For a Steak, definitely, not. Service was great.
Warm greetings, great server, exceptional food.
RReally, the night was great.! We especially liked our server, Elizabeth, who was informative and humorous! The food was also really good and we went away filled and satisfied!
My daughter, her husband and I ate there during our little Victoria getaway. It was divine! Quiet cozy ambiance, impeccable service, and amazing food. I had the wild salmon (rare) with crab-risotto. Simply divine. It was a large portion—I wish I could have eaten every morsel. I started with their house green salad that was anything but boring. My sweeties live in Vancouver so when I have time during future visits I’ll make it a point to come back!
Busy place, easy to see why. Food was great as was the service in Ferris upstairs.
