    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.

    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 .

    What a nice dinner. They know how to cook fish. I had the beet salad which came with red and yellow beets, pistachios, fresh dill, a puree, and oil. Heavenly. My partner had a 1/2 dozen oysters of the day…beautiful and well-made accompanying mignonette. Entrees included mussels in a wine, coconut-milk broth and a seafood bouillabaisse. Both broths were just a bit too salt forward, but otherwise faultless with layers of flavor. The seafood in both dishes were perfectly cooked. A little sound absorption material would be appreciated in this all-wood bar/eatery.

    The Bouillabaisse was out of this world! Everything else was merely excellent. Friendly server who went far above and beyond to be helpful, informative and make us feel welcome.
