    Absolutely delicious. We were celebrating our dear friends 46th anniversary. I had the local steelhead dish with whipped potatoes which was fabulous. The rest of our party all had the seafood pasta dish and they loved it. I highly recommend eating here. Worth the money spent.

    Only dissappointment is that I Would have liked to have been Offered a patio table, as we could not make rez for patio. It was a (Super hot summer evening with spectacular sunset.) Had a Rez for Two: we were seated at an inside wall with a window that opened inside to the back of the bartender’s bar; Clanking bar noise and no view. Food excellent; Especially the desserts. Service was great.

    Food was outstanding, along with a great bottle of wine. Couldn't ask for better service. Only drawback was the room temp, 2nd floor table with no apparent AC on a warm Victoria evening.

    Great dining experience. We arrived early and the staff were able to seat us immediately. I had the double pork chop which was sous-vided and finished in the grill. The glaze was to die for! My wife had the seafood linguini. They were out of mussels but compensated with additional clams and shrimp. Great ambiance and our table overlooked the bay. We will definitely come back.

    Our dinner was amazing!! We had the Fresh BC Steelhead and the Atlantic Lobster. Highly recommend both. For dessert we shared white coffee panna cotta, espresso gelee, caramel, crispy tuille. Every bite was different. This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel and downtown. Staff was super friendly and helpful with menu choices. This is my new favourite restaurant in Victoria!!

    Right from the moment we stepped in the door, we were warmly welcomed. Our waitress Mia was very helpful, listened well, and knew the menu. We started with happy hour drinks, then salad with fennel and oranges, followed by Rockfish with risotto which was amazing! The manager came by for a chat. What a fantastic, family operated restaurant with outstanding food and people. Thank you !~!

    The crab dish was surprisingly not what I had expected for a nice restaurant. Just a crab placed on top for a few sliced potatoes and broccoli. Butter was in a small dish. Fish and chips was all batter barely any fish. I had to take off most the batter due to there being so much. First time eating at the new establishment and was not impressed with the food.

    Beautiful experience for our wedding anniversary weekend. Our special occasion was noted, and extra touches added including a wonderful complimentary dessert. The crab was excellent and steelhead outstanding. Cocktails were perfect. And our server set exactly the right tone with the most professional service we received in Victoria. And the view from our very private table was perfect. Thank you!

    Great first time experience! Would have given 5 stars but felt the portion of the steelhead fish was quite small for the price, but it was really tasty! My husband had the seafood linguine and it was excellent! Fantastic service with Hunter!

    Waitress was putting too much pressure for me To order and clean and order again. I spent 40min with an appetizer and a meal, seated. The faster restaurant ever ! Will go somewhere else next time. My view and waitress were not good but food fine. Red wine merlot aweful and pinot gris was fine. Im sure Victoria City can do better

    Seated at a table for 2 in a corner walled with plants above directly perpendicular to a very noisy table of 4. Their loud conversation echoed off the plant wall and went into my right ear and my husbands left ear. We could barely talk to each other. No other table could be provided by the manager. My husband eventually took his hearing aides out because it was too loud. We ate quickly and left.

    Wonderful experience! We drove 2 hours to spend time in Victoria and had supper here and it did not disappoint, the view is amazing, service wonderful, cocktails were great and the food incredible!! I highly recommend the Steelhead trout,..I’m still talking about it…it was superbly prepared, everything worked well together, also had the artisan green orange and fennel salad, the portion listed is large and more of a meal but she told me they offer it a small appetizer portion and it was really good too…my partner had the Finn burger that was very good and the rockfish croquettes as a starter which he found delicious as well…No complaints from this table,..we will return next time we’re in town!

    I ordered the ahi tuna salad ($24.00) and it was surprisingly small. There were a few potatoes at the bottom which in my opinion seemed out of place. Except for the potatoes, the salad was very good but also very small. After consuming it I was still quite hungry. My dining companion let me have a piece of her pizza. The vegetarian pizza was very good.

    Dinner to celebrate university graduation with our son. We had to reschedule due to the extended length of the ceremony; the hostess did so easily and quickly. Prompt seating but a bit of a wait for drink/food orders to be taken. However, the food was up and hot rather quickly…no wait there. Server was polite and helpful; same with the support staff. Would return especially later in summer season: very attractive deck/patio that we couldn’t enjoy because of weather.

    Bartender was fantastic. Host was confusing: because we arrived 30 mins early and wanted to get a drink at the bar first, she told us we’d have to give up our table. We thought it was a Canadian thing? Reservation only at the bar? No. (At least according to the bartender.) Food was OK. They seem to ride on their reputation and a tourist clientele.
