    We had the Dine Around menu. The food was very good and service was also. The chicken breast surpassed my expectations and the delicious lemon tart was a very generous portion.

    Always a favourite restaurant when in Victoria. Strongly recommend reservations as people are always waiting for tables at night. Staff are so nice and I wish I could remember our server's name as she was awesome ... never left waiting or looking for service but not hovering, either. The steelhead was the best I've had in a long time, perfectly cooked. The rest of the group had shrimp tacos (her usual here), seafood linguine, and fish & chips ... again all very tasty. Started the meal with the garlic/parm flatbread and could have easily filled up on that. We are already talking about when we can get back here!

    This place gets a 10. Our server, Christine, needs to be commended as she is a server par excellence. Friendly, thoughtful, helpful. Made us feel important. It’s staff like that that keeps customers coming back.

    The place is very nice. Great view of the harbor and I’ll bet the outdoor deck is great in the summer. The food was ok. Biggest complaint was my salmon- it was promised to be wild-caught Pacific but the color and taste was poor. And no one in the restaurant could tell me if it was supposed to be King, Silver, Sockeye, Chum, or what. A rare time I sent a dish back and ordered something else

    This is one of our favourite restaurants in Victoria. The food is consistently good and the staff strives to ensure clients are happy and enjoy their meals. We highly recommend the Rockfish Croquettes, Rockfish Risotto and their pizzas. We have never had a bad meal and the staff ensures everything tastes as expected. Issues are resolved quickly and professionally. I highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. The view is fantastic as well!

The kitchen served the food quickly which all arrived for each member of the party together. The food was delicious fresh and tasty, everyone enjoyed what they ordered.

    Food was amazing! Wish we had a few more veg with main course for the price. It was very cold. We sat in what seemed like the patio area which we were unaware of when making the reservation. The overhead heaters we on for a bit but not near.or pointed at our table. We noticed as we were almost done rjay blankets were offered to another table. The waitress did not ask or suggest a blanket for our table even though I wore my jacket the entire time. A little disappointed and hard to enjoy our dinner while being so cold. And also eating with my jacket in wasn't very comfortable either

    We were there on Dec 8th - it was busy. We sat downstairs, it was cool and the chairs were too low for the table. We ordered mussels but they were out so we had clams. The clams were very small. Two of us ordered the flatbread - it was delicious. The drinks and service were fine.
