Awesome place! Will definitely come back. Would recommend to others.
This was my first time to Little Jumbo since the lockdown. It was quiet of course and as I remembered....all good. The service didn’t match expectations. I may be old fashioned but service seemed too casual For me in this context. However I will return.
The cocktails are always superb. We had the flatirons steaks, cooked to perfection and the salad was like it had just been picked from the garden and served.
Incredible food even better cocktails great service must visit every time we go to Victoria
All good. The service was a bit spotty.
The food presentation and taste were amazing. The staff was very accommodating, finding crayons for our toddler from a neighbouring restaurant on their own accord. My husband enjoyed the beverage selection for Father’s Day. Great restaurant! We will visit again.
Little Jumbo cocktails are incredibly tasty. Staff are incredibly attentive, COVID friendly, and quick to serve. The food, while some not so appealing in print, turned out to be absolutely delicious! Loved everything about this little restaurant. Social distancing is a must (for now) but still somehow the restaurant felt energetic and fun. Excellent!
Some of the best cocktails/food in town. They'll customize a cocktail to your taste, or just whip something original up if you suggest what you like. Outstanding.
We’ve always loved Little Jumbo, so they were a natural first choice for our first meal out since everything shut down. Their hygiene and distancing measures were well executed and reassuring. We felt welcomed, safe, and well fed. We will be back and we will strongly encourage others to dine in here as well as support the new take out program.
Our first time but had heard lots of positives. Exceeded expectations.
One of the best dining experiences in Victoria, wonderful atmosphere, great cocktails and delicious food!
Consistently excellent food, amongst the best in the downtown core.
Impressive how they are at once a classic French restaurant, and a funky hipster cocktail lounge.
While it doesn't have the expansive view of Vista 18, I am partial to the cozy brick cellar atmosphere they have created.
I hope this helps people choose to eat here!
My goodness, thank you so much for your kind words and recommendation. This means so much to our team!
We went to Little Jumbo for our first date night in months!! The drinks are all ways delicious and the food was mouth watering. Everything was cooked perfectly. The service was excellent and I felt very safe. We will be back! Yum!
Thank you McWoo, so honoured that you chose us for that special night. We look forward to serving you again.
Disappointing , no one seemed like they wanted to be there. Almost like they were doing me a favor, for a 200 dinner, really?
Reviews are meant to be honest assessments of a guest's experience. This is not. In the middle of Phase 2 Covid-19 we are given strict guidelines to protect the health of our staff & our valued guests. In booking, it is clear that we require card payments only. Reviewer reserved online & was reminded of this when checked in. Despite this, he made a scene when we couldn't make change for his cash payment - he got huffy and stated 'you get what you get' walked out leaving our team with a 2% tip.
Exceptional service and delicious food. They go out of their way to make your visit super special. Highly recommend the duck terrine. Can’t wait to go back
Thanks Kate. New menu just launched, we look forward to the opportunity of serving you again soon.
Cool vibe in the place. Chic decor and an upscale bar/dining hipster feel. Service was good. Just the right size menu that makes it clear that the dishes change regularly which tells me the chef is engaged and they aren’t just pumping out the same thing as nauseam. Had an early reservation so a little muted as very few patrons(darn covid!). Overall a great experience
These folks are fantastic!! The service was impeccable and personable. The cocktails have been game changers over the years. My father and I took a chance on the new menu and we were not disappointed. To the kitchen staff, my hats off to you. You guys nailed it!
Will definitely be back :)
Thanks AdamF. Heads up, new menu just launched yesterday. We hope to serve you again soon.
Loved getting back to this little gem. Little Jumbo manages the Covid risk well for their staff and guests. The Denny's customer cocktail - was oh so good. Look forward to coming back again soon.
Hi RickyJ. Thanks for your positive feedback on managing Covid risk in our newly spaced room. We look forward to your return.
Will definitely be back... Lovely trendy little place,,, great drinks and food. Service was excellent too.
New safety measures in place are pretty unobtrusive, still a fantastic dining experience.
As we went during half capacity seating, the restaurant was quiet. Food, drink, and service were excellent. Very comforting. The prices are on the higher end for what I'd expect in a cocktail bar, but the experience was worth it.
We were a bit disappointed with the new menu. It was very short and the food was just ok. Little Jumbo is one of our favourite spots but it missed the mark for us this time.
Thanks for your feedback. We are transitioning off pure takeout & delivery back to our former selves. It's a challenge to run two menus, for two great audiences. We never dreamed that takeout would be part of our brand, nor our occupancy would be halved on reopening. The kitchen team is delighted to be getting back to artistic plating vs. packaging for takeout. Chefs are busy with fresh, seasonal, local procurement complicated by tattered supply chains, but we are resilient and will prevail.
Wonderful place. Good ambience on selection of music and decor. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Servers have nice attitude. Highly recommend!
What a very pleasant surprise. Our server was pleasant and welcoming the and made some very good recommendations from the changing menu. Their cocktails are quite unique and very enjoyable. The appetiser was sufficient for my wife and I to share and main entrees were quite sufficient. I would suggest splitting a dessert unless you are still really hungry. The setting was quiet but we had an earlier than normal dinner (5:30) on a Sunday. Definitely go back again.
My server was amazing. Top tier. The service is always great.
We went for our kids 18th birthday. The menu was very limited, but the food we ordered was as usual very good. Just felt a bit limited with choice. The 3 desert options were not hugely appealing considering my one son is allergic to sesame and date.... so we went elsewhere for desert. The wine list is limited but good. Will he back, but not for a special occasion again. Was actually disappointed Witt the service levels, once we paid we were dismissed and had to collect our own costs etc and see ourselves out. Not what was expected for a special dinner.
Thanks. We apologize for not putting your coats on & helping you out the door, difficult when the restaurant is busy . For 7 years this hasn't been an issue for our valued guests. For prospective guests, our menu is online & we encourage you to look at it in advance, we will tempt you with additional specials. It may come a relief to many, we did not design the restaurant, its menu nor ambiance for teenage birthdays. Generally considered as an adult venue or Victoria's premier date-night spot.
Amazing food, very accommodating to allergies. And the cocktails are phenomenal, put yourself in the hands of the bartender and try " The Handshake"
Excellent service delicious food warm Cody quiet atmosphere will be back
Thanks CristalB. We look forward to serving you again. New menu launches march 18th!
Can't wait to return. I am reluctant to leave a good review because I want to save this wonderful place for myself.
Make reservations! Order cocktails they are very creative and delicious
Thanks HubertB. Great advice for prospective guests, we thank you.
We’ve wanted to come back here (from Seattle) for some time and were happy we could make it work. It’s a great place and we’ll be coming back!

Friendly service and a comfortable atmosphere. We had our 6 year old with us and she loved it too! Really great bar program with creative and sophisticated cocktails and lovely curated wine list.
Birthday meal was excellent. Great wine. Prompt service. Will return.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. We were so happy to have a reservation which is highly recommended. People were waiting 2+ hours for a table. The small restaurant is charming with outstanding service and incredibly delicious food. Truly a gem
Had an amazing evening, food was amazing and the cocktails delicious. Only sad thing was the 2 hour time limit I could of stayed for a few more hours ordering drinks and food.
Such wonderful ambience. Friendly and knowledgeable servers. Amazing cocktails and food. Great experience!
What an amazing meal! We spent the long holiday weekend in Victoria and had the good fortune of making reservations here far enough ahead of our time to get in.
Loved the ambience, the service was spot on and the food was spectacular!! A definite dining must. You can tell someone in that kitchen cares about quality, taste and presentation!!
We sat at the bar and our bartender was excellent and attentive. We asked him to surprise us with a vodka drink and he did not disappoint. We will definitely be back!!
This is our "go to" restaurant when we are headed to Victoria from up Island. Simply put there is everything you want in a dining experience. The food is beyond delicious and the staff (especially Chelsea) is accomodating to your every need. Reserve ahead if you can...this is a busy place! Amazing bar tenders! Try it, you'll love it!
Very tasty however a little pricey.
I really like this restaurant
