    The oysters and bouillabaisse were fantastic! It was a pleasant surprise to have such a good meal. The service was amazing. The server knew so much about the wines, we were able to pick a perfect wine to go with our meal. I will be back!

    The food was good, however, the sirloin was to be medium rare and was definitely on the medium side, but was still flavourful.

    The oysters were served completely dry, without any natural water/juice… a real bummer. The linguine with clams ended up being an alfredo sauce, and extremely salty. The halibut was dry and average. This place is a tourist trap.

    We think this is the best restaurant in Victoria. My husband had the fall off the bone duck. I had tuna tartar and I could have picked the plate. Ferris' Upstairs is our go to restaurant whenever we visit Victoria. Our server was great.

    Food was extremely good. Servers were sweet and friendly, but appeared a little distracted at times.

    Great ambience, romantic for a date night and very nice setting overall. Oysters, octapus and the fish entrees were perfect. Reasonable priced wine bottles. Our server, Alex was very nice, polite and accommodating. We will return for sure .
