    We had asked for a window seat when reserving and was given the only one left at 7pm (time of our reservation). However, there was a reason why the table was left empty. It was the only one with no blinds and the late afternoon sun was too strong to sit there. So that's why I did not give full points for ambiance. Big disappointment, they had run out of Prosecco. It was our anniversary and we were looking forward to our favorite bubbly. We would have brought our own if we had known. Our server was bright, helpful and friendly and she got everything right. One thing we have noticed is that most restaurants in this neck of the woods do not put any nibblies on the table to hold you over until there is some food on the table and this one was no exception. Overall, a wonderful evening, great food and superb service.

    Nice setting with view of marina. Appetizers are great but large so either 2 appies or a main for dinner. Had halibut special which was flavorful although a bit overcooked. Friend had salmon med rare that looked great.

    Always my ‘go to’ when visitors come to town. Lunch is a little noisier than dinner. The food is a bit pricey, but absolutely mouth watering!! Have had the halibut, the beef tenderloin (my personal favourite), the lamb, the chicken, and the surf and turf (a very small portion). Love their mashed potatoes too, I could just eat those! My only minor critique is dessert….not enough choice. You must go at least once!

    The Sea Glass restaurant is a very nice place right on the water where boats are moored so the view is fantastic. In the nice weather you can sit either in or outside. The food is fabulous.

    We were looking forward to a date night out. However one could not have a reasonable conversation. The music was lovely but too loud. There must be some way to have noise damping as the group tables really take away from meal enjoyment. It really felt like a fancy fast food joint. Nicer setting though. I was disappointed that the menu did not reflect the end product. The steak was to have a peppercorn sauce which we really enjoy this lead to our disappointment. I do not feel the meal reflects the cost.

    One of Sidney’s ‘hidden’ gems for casual dining. Sterling service complemented by an excellent menu and its delicious choices. A ‘go to’ venue for those with a more discriminating pallet. A deserved five star!

    Sea Glass Waterfront Grill is a hidden gem. The view, service and food was excellent. We went here prior to our return ferry from Victoria to Seattle. Due to this restaurant's location in Sidney, it is a great place to eat prior to the ferry.

    I always take my friend out for dinner on the birthday and many other restaurants offer a small dessert with a candle on it or a sparkler. I asked and was told they could give me a candle if I bought the dessert. I think I would take others there for their birthday but won't. It would benefit your business if you acknowledged special dates for your customers.

    The food and service are always outstanding at SeaGlass Waterfront Grill! I had the ribs and was licking my lips the entire time! It is such a charming atmosphere with lovely marina front views and a staff who bother to remember you and are truly happy to see you upon each return. The food is consistently top-notch and so fresh and creative! Seaglass is a perfect spot for Date Night, Birthday Dinner, Anniversary Dinner, and Girl's night, Kids love it too-My grandson insists we go every time he is in town!

    Everything from when we entered to when we left was lovely . The food was delicious, the server took time to explain all the gluten and dairy free options of which there were plenty, the seaside scenery is lovely. The only thing I found was that the corner table there was very cold with a draft, I guess being close to 2 sides of floor to ceiling window?

    Food was delicious and we would love to go again in the daylight to take advantage of the views. Only 1 comment about the service ….. our server was very good but was not experienced enough to recommend wine pairings - suggest the chef go through the menu with wait staff and tell them,what to recommend when asked.
