Fire + Water Restaurant at the Victoria Marriott
We find inspiration in local, sustainable, fresh ingredients that are abundant along the Pacific Coast, where the climate provides many a delicacy in our wild and not so wild spaces.
Our talented culinary team is a mix of different cultures, and those cultures brought ingredients, ideas and approach to cooking that we at Fire + Water describe as West Coast Cuisine.
The palette-tempting menu combined with the casual modern setting and atmosphere of our restaurant and Lounge are a great for family celebrations, a casual drink after work or a special occasion.

We made a reservation through Open Table and then when we arrived we were turned away because we were not staying at the hotel. I enquired as to why they accepted our reservation and the gentleman at the door blamed the mix up on, wait for it, Open Table. Dismissive, dishonest, disappointing.
best steak I have tasted in Victoria. Great service. I would go there again. Thank you
Awesome good. Great service a hidden gem for sure.
Valentines Day. We were put in a back private room and I understand that the spacing of the tables is an issue but I think we lost some of the ambience being away from everyone else.
We had a lovely meal with great service. The ambiance was of a comfortable bar like setting which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Delicious food. The pork chops are not something I would usually order and they were excellent. Beautiful stemware for our drinks.
Did dine around Victoria here. Loved it!
Lovely service, fantastic meal, & great ambiance. Definitely will return
We enjoyed our meal here as part of Victoria’s dine around. The dine around menu was extremely good value. Attentive service. Drinks were reasonably priced. The restaurant was smaller and more intimate than I had imagined. The portions were large - we had to take some home. Excellent flavour and fresh ingredients. If I had a quibble it would be that the dishes were very rich - liberal use of cream and cream cheese. Delicious but rich. We will definitely visit again.
Food very tasty, had the dine around menu with Tuna, salmon and lemon cheesecake. Husband had cannelloni and chocolate symphony (too sweet for me). Wouldn't go back though as do not want to TV on when I'm dining out as find this too intrusive.
Dine around town menu!
Delicious, great value, pleasant service and room.
Food and service was excellent, but was disappointed that standard menu was not available due to Dine Around Town promotion.
We went last night for our anniversary and will be back sooner than later. Realized we haven’t gone since last anniversary. The drinks and dessert was AMAZING. Our server even covered one of the desserts, which gave a lasting impression because the chef even wrote “happy anniversary” on both of the desserts. Thank you Fire + Water!
Staff was friendly and helpful. Food ok but very limited menu.
Our first time here, We had a delicious meal, fantastic service from Kyra and relaxing ambiance to celebrate family members birthday. Great Covid safety measures in place. Highly recommend for anyone celebrating something special and want a warm peaceful place to connect. We will be back.
Clam chowder was superb. Steaks were excellent. Service flawless. Price up there.
There was a glitch in the reservation system which resulted in our arriving on time only to be told there was no reservation.
The maitre'd was excellent, and sat us at the bar while he rearranged tables and found us a nice window table.
We enjoyed the excellent food, and excellent service.
We enjoyed the Dine Around Victoria options. Very tasty meals. Very large portions. Enjoyed some of our meal at home the next day. I'd go again. Good BC wine.
Overall, pretty mediocre dinner and surely not worth the price. The restaurant was fairly busy, but under control which made it even more disappointing that the food and service were simply “alright”. I can understand how this would be a convenient meal option for those staying at the hotel, but other than that I would not return again.
Ps. Olive tapenade should not be served with salted bread. Too. Much. Salt.
Was pleasantly surprised and pleased with our Dine Around Dinner! Reserved ahead of time and was seated in a booth which provided us with privacy and coziness. Ample food portions, beautiful presentation, and delicious and healthy selections. Certainly will return to check out the regular menu and foods.
Typical hotel lobby restaurant. Food was fine, nothing outside of normal. Fish, arctic Char, was overcooked and unseasoned so pretty bland. Salad was fresh and well seasoned. Risotto was pretty average as was the gnocchi. Both the ginger apple cake and the flourless chocolate cake were uninspired. Pleasant ambiance and probably a nice spot for a drink. Lunch a few weeks back was a nice experience, I would go back for lunch, but dinner was not particularly memorable.
First time at Fire and Water and we will definitely be returning. Four of us enjoyed the Dine Around menu and enjoyed all the courses. Very generous portions, great choices for starters, mains and desserts. Service allowed us to have a nice relaxing meal without feeling like we were waiting for anything. My only complaint is that we could not finish the meal and were given a takeout container to scrape the plate at our table. It didn’t feel very elegant which is the vibe we originally got from Fire and Water.
Mediocre food, poor service and timing of everything was very off. We were seated and basically ignored for 10+ minutes before someone came to take our drinks order. Staff took our meal order at the same time and the first course was at our table less than 5 minutes later, before our drinks had even arrived. Long wait between first and second course. Will not be returning.
Not a great table, reseated to another table which was also not so great. Other than that the experience was excellent!
Love the new decor although the tables seem a bit small for a 4 top. Food was good but the server need to work on their descriptions - dessert ended up being way better than how it was described. Additionally, the bar should work on some mocktails other than the usual virgin margarita or daiquiri, or cranberry and soda water. With more people opting not to drink and drive, some alternatives would be a great addition to the bar menu.
We were tucked away in a private room which was wise...we were loud😁. Dine around menu was one of the best I have seen. Lots of variety and everyone liked their picks. There is not really much space as it is kind of a hotel lounge with some tables for eating. It was overall well presented and delicious.
We like the Fire and Water restaurant. It is quiet and the service is good. Located in downtown Victoria and it's accessible.
My girlfriend and I had an excellent experience at this restaurant on New Years Eve. It's a smaller restaurant located inside the Marriott Hotel just across from the lobby. The food and service was outstanding! We had a bottle or red wine and ordered their calamari to start which we both said was great. For our mains I ordered the lobster salad which was delicious and the perfect size. My girlfriend ordered the seafood pasta which I also tried and was very, very good. Our server was great, very friendly and checked on us a couple of times throughout our meal. There are a couple of TV's in the restaurant for anyone that would like to sit at the bar but with no volume, they had music playing at the perfect volume on this night. I would definitely recommened this restaurant and we will definitely visit again.
We enjoyed a lovely family lunch. Service was excellent - everyone from the host to the servers was prompt and polite. Food was very good. We tried the fish and chips, clam chowder and the burger. Very cozy with a fireplace.
Great service, great food
We spent Christmas Eve dinner at Fire & Wire, and it was truly memorable. We started off with cocktails, which were yummy, and then had a delicious meal-I had a steak that was cooked to perfection, and my daughter had a seafood dish that was equally delicious. Our waiter gave exceptional service, and he never stopped moving the entire time we were there. Would definitely recommend this establishment and hope to visit it again in our next visit to Victoria.
Wonderful service, very attentive and quick with the food. Accomodated my group size perfectly.
Excellent experience from arrival to departure. Amazing food and drinks with top shelf service. Unexpectedly got a beautiful private room for our reservation. A true hidden gem in Victoria. Thank you Fire + Water!
I have been a fan for several years and love the patio in summer. The main reason though is that the food is consistently good, the staff friendly and it's actually quiet enough to be able to chat with friends and family and clients in particular. With the new renovations I thought that this may have changed but was pleased to find all the above still true, even with some noisy folk at the bar, we were still able to talk without shouting. The chairs are comfortable too! I have already recommended it again to friends for a nice reasonable evening out!
Poorly done, painfully typical "hotel restaurant" with lovely staff.
Not expecting a hotel lobby restaurant.
Great food, friendly staff, but it was a little quiet
Good food in a newly renovated dinjng area. Unfortunately, it's noisier than it was before the renovation because there are you many reflective surfaces.
