The name ‘Olo’ means ‘hungry’ in Chinook Jargon, a derivative language of English, French, Chinese and Chinook. The Pacific Northwest was once a gathering place for traders from all over the world... French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, First Nations and more; at OLO these influences are integrated into a cuisine that showcases the Cascadian region.
We are lucky to have access to the forest, farms, and ocean here on the West Coast. We are a restaurant that believes in sustainable farming practices, seasonality, and knowing the stories of the growers.

OLO has reopened Thursday to Sunday, in Phase 3 of the BC COVID-19 recovery plan, and are as wonderful as ever. All necessary precautions are in place. The warm atmosphere, great service, superb food and interesting wine list are there. It is a treat to have them back!
Fantastic food, great service and happy to keep coming back!
Awesome food. Highly recommended
This was our first date night since the pandemic started and we decided to try out someplace new. What a great experience - the food was *exceptional*. Definitely one of our top 3 dining experiences ever. Pricey but worth it for a big night out!
Olo never disappoints! This was our first meal out in months and every plate was extraordinary, we didn’t want to leave! The mushroom starter is an all time fave, the halibut entree was perfection, and the elderflower ice cream with desert blew my mind! Thanks SO much!
The food was perfect. Inventive and perfectly balanced with incredible ingredients. The extra space between tables made for a relatively quiet experience. Great music and perfect service. Attentive and unobtrusive. Fabulous all around.
The food here was amazing, I can't wait to go back, love it!
Such an amazing experience! Highly recommend to anyone in Victoria.
I've been to OLO twice now and sat at the bar on both occasions - the cocktails are excellent and the service truly makes the experience. The chef clearly puts a lot of thought and care into the plating and flavours. Definitely recommend.
We LOVED our experience at OLO. The food was incredible and the service was amazing. Would highly recommend!
Food and service was absolutely stellar. Everything was done to perfection. Plates were inventive and looked stunning. The deserts had a perfect balance of flavours. Wine suggestion was spot on. Dinner was absolutely worth the price. Table beside us did the tasting menu and it also looked amazing. Top marks, 5 stars, would definitely recommend to anyone and will be returning.
Fantastic food! The duck breast was excellent, and the tuna appetizer was a work of art.
It was a fantastic date night complete with amazing farm to table foods and delicious bevvies
I had the steak - so good and my god. GET THE CHOCOLATE CAKE. One per person, I shared one with my date and we really should’ve gotten two.
I had the most amazing cheeseburger that I’ve ever had. It was fantastic. We had a great evening. Thank you to all working at OLO on Saturday night. We had a super nifht
Fabulous food. Fantastic service. The absolute perfect spot for a 40th birthday celebration with friends and family. Thank you so much OLO - the reputation that you've created for being a top-notch restaurant is more than well-earned!
Always great service. Great food, great wine and great cocktails. Check this place out.
One of the most amazing burgers I have ever had! The semolina cubes to start and sneaking bites of my wife’s gnocchi....just made it all the more perfect!
Carson (and everyone else that touched our table) was extraordinary in executing service. Plates were perfectly described and timed so well. We will be back
Amazing food, amazing wine. We are always so impressed by OLO and are excited for our next chance to return!
Best restaurant in Victoria, great food, drinks and service.
Always fantastic. Top 3 spots in Victoria no question.
Excellent fresh wonderful food. Wonderful staff. Excellent chocolate dessert too.
It was amazing! Wine selections were so good
Amazing food, beautiful presentation and superb staff! Nice atmosphere with a chill vibe. Would definitely come back here and recommend to friends!
Amazing and creative food! Our favourite great food place.
Amazing food and great service. My new favorite restaurant!
I loved everything. It was so tasty. I could only afford to eat there every couple of years though.
Olo is phenomenal. The food is meticulously thought out and prepared. The service is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The beverages are worth savouring. Olo is never a poor choice for dinner regardless of the occasion.
We received a GC for your restaurant. As we are an older couple (and simple) we found the menu difficult to sort through as the selections were somewhat unfamiliar. The waitress was great and helped us try to work through it.
I have to say the familiar items were wonderful (house made sourdough bread (!!!!) & grass fed butter were awesome as was the wine and dessert). My partner had the iron steak which he enjoyed. I was disappointed there was not a chicken selection on the menu that day.
All in all the prep and presentation were wonderful and we loved that food items were locally sourced.
First time at OLO, excellent food. The duck and the pork were very nice, and the rutabaga (which I normally just tolerate) was amazing. Noisy place, but it's small and busy - to be expected. Kudos to the kitchen staff and wait staff, they're very good at their work.
The only item in my meal that gave food for thought...was my icecream in the dessert....it melted to fast..I believe it should have stayed more firm to accompany the other ingredients. Otherwise this second visit from a Tourist in your town was Wonderfully Delightful!
We went for the Valentines tasting menu and all of the food as well as the atmosphere was really good. I was a bit disappointed with the service, as we had to wait a while for our server to greet us when we were first seated, and clear our plates between courses. The couple beside us actually finished their last dinner plate after we did but received dessert courses and their bill well before us. Overall it was good food but I’m not sure the service was worth the tasting menu price.
One of the most consistant restaurants in the city! Very good
This was a dinner to celebrate my 75th birthday. We were served by Matt, the general manager. Very gracious and attentive service, good knowledge and advice about the wines available on the menu.
The food was delicious, with a focus on local ingredients - for example white truffles newly brought in from Langley to accompany the gnocchi. Noise level was perfect - nice buzz but easy to carry on a conversation.
A great experience!
Very nice room with lovely atmosphere, great food pleasant service
It was our valentine diner with our kids and it was amazing! Everything was perfect, food and service!
We really enjoyed our meal at Olo. Interesting and delicious flavours in all three courses
Have written Brad an email. The noise was a bit much but the food compensated for it...
