Great food and intimate setting, even socially distanced : )
Great place, love the ambiance and the staff were very approachable and knowledgeable. Amazing little spot. On rated 4 for the food because we didn’t have any!
Must go, cheers.
Waiter rushed us throughout our meal. There was a time limit and we didn’t get a chance to try dessert. In three occasions they reminded us of the time we had left. Pressure while I’m eating is a big no-no.
Food is excellent and well presented. Tables are private and well separated.
Mixologists make outstanding cocktails.
Restaurant included gratuity in Bill. I was not advised and then tipped another 18%. Effectively tipping 36% of my bill.
I love Little Jumbo, Their COVID19 procedures are excellent. The food and drinks were delicious. They carefully accommodated a food restriction. With the extra plastic dividers and fewer bodies the room is a bit noisier than usual, but that's a small complaint.
A beautiful place, with great drinks. The server with the short blonde hair, however, was clearly impatient and fairly short of temper. Not quite sure why, but we did feel a bit like we were somehow "inconvenient". We made our decisions quickly and didn't ask for anything special, so I could do with some better service when paying top dollar. The lamb tartar had WAY too much sesame oil, it was kind of all you could taste. But the duck was delish, and good portions of each. Ah well. We enjoyed ourselves.
Great location, great food, great service! We will be back time and time again!
Birthday Dinner, phenomenal service, steak frites was cooked to prefection! The oysters are a must
Felt super comfortable and at ease and was very happy with their Covid protocol.
Amazing cocktails and appetizers - had a great time sitting up at the bar. Highly recommend checking this place out!!
Thank you so much for having us!
The experience was totally amazing! The service was super friendly and we enjoyed every single aspect of our visit.
Wonderful food and great vibes. Will definitely go back!
Bartender was lovely
Food was very good
Can be very noisy depending on the clientele
All over good experience
Went here for an anniversary dinner and we were SO disappointed. The ambiance is cozy and service was very good, but the food was the big disappointment. Oh and the wine list. Started with the lamb tartare and heirloom tomato salad. The lamb was the only dish we enjoyed- although the baguette slices were too charred. They obviously didn’t provide enough baguette for the portion and predictably charged extra for more. The tomato salad was inedible (and the only salad on the menu). It had a very odd smoky emulsion with it that overpowered the whole dish. It’s all we could taste. We actually didn’t finish it. For entrees we had the duck and flat iron steak. The duck was not cooked properly, with undercooked skin (not crispy) and none of the fat rendered so that was unpleasant. The meat itself was rubbery and lacked flavour. The flat iron was meh. Nothing great, served with lots of fries. That’s it. Dessert was also disappointing- the ‘mille feuille’ was more like chocolate mousse accompanied by two crispy wafers. The rhubarb tart pastry was hard and the filling underflavoured. It’s like the chef didn’t actually taste anything and was relying on presentation only. The menu is odd, one salad only - but 3 different appetizers that were some form of spreadable meat. For a small menu this seemed imbalanced. The wine list, as well, was limited and unoriginal in any way. Overall this place lacked any true quality or thoughtfulness on any front - menu design, wine list creativity and, worst of all, food preparation. It was a very expensive mistake.
We made a reservation ahead of time. When we got there we were told we were limited to 1.5 hours but we were not made aware of that at the time of booking.
Food was fine . We had the flat iron steak and it came with a bunch of fries , no veggies.
Cocktail drink was unique.
Service was good.
Plexiglass barriers in place.
Excellent all around
Food was just delicious. Service was exemplary.
We came to Victoria to celebrate our wedding anniversary and booked in to have dinner at Little Jumbo. The food, service and overall ambiance was excellent. We will definately make this little gem a go to everytime we come to this amazing city.
My first dinner out since March!! Everything and everyone was as I remembered. Simply wonderful and delicious. Thank you.
Always such an amazing spot to come to. Vibes are always incredibly high, staff attentive and personable, and drinks divine. Thanks, team!
Drinks, food and service is always outstanding.
Amazing menu that changes regularly, it's my favourite place to eat. Delicious food, great atmosphere, great bar selection. You don't come here just to eat dinner, you come for an experience.
Fabulous food and a variety of cocktails, beers, liquors. The staff was friendly and Matt the bartender made the whole experience wonderful
Amazing food, drink and ambiance. the only thing is that the food portions are really small for the price.
Always appreciate Little Jumbo to hit the mark for a memorable dining experience.
Little Jumbo was the perfect spot for a romantic birthday dinner! They even brought out small glasses of Prosecco for my boyfriend and I to celebrate. The food and service were phenomenal! Definitely recommend the halibut. Would definitely come again for a special occasion, it’s just a little pricey!
I have to go to Little Jumbo whenever I'm in Victoria; they are just so consistently excellent. The service, food and cocktails are always perfect.
Great food. Great ambiance. Make sure to book early.
Great cocktails and service, food not quite so good as it has been in the past.
Little Jumbo is an amazing place to enjoy food and cocktails with friends.
Very tasty dishes (we shared two mains, then two desserts ). The servers were attentive and professional.
Love Little Jumbo! Best cocktails in town. Beautiful oysters
Absolutely outstanding top to bottom. Wanted to take my friend out for a nice meal and we were both absolutely blown away Connor and his kitchen team were flawless with their timing presentation and taste, everything was exicuted perfectly. The front of house team was also awesome, our server Maddy was on top of everything making sure we had everything we needed. Matt behind the bar was also great super knowledgeable and friendly. By far best dinning experience I’ve had would recommend to any and everyone
Delicious food and amazing drinks. Great service, will recommend.
This is my new favourite place for cocktails. Here it is an art form! They are tasty, inspired and also beautifully presented. While I have only had the truffle fries and cocktails, on several several occasions, I plan to return soon for the whole dining experience.
It was great! Great drinks, fun atmosphere, kinda staff. Social distancing friendly.
The food was excellent. The cocktails were spot on. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great - knowledgeable, attentive and approachable. The room is quiet and nice to be able to have a conversation. I would highly recommend.
The place was amazing, food was exceptional, my only issue was that the drinks were rather expensive. Server was great and attentive, they did a wonderful job adhering to distancing practices. Overall a wonderful experience, just wish the drinks were a touch less expensive
We were reminded three times that we had to leave after two hours. We were still eating and we had still half an hour before the 2 hrs were up. It was extremely rude. Another issue I had was the tip percentage on the machine. It started with 18%. We do normally give 20%. but I would at least like to have the choice. We gave them 18% tip (since 20% was not an option and the other options were unreasonable), because the bartender did a great job, otherwise we would not have.
