    We had the three course “dine around” menu and it was excellent. Cooked just right and tasty. Our server was thoughtful and attentive. We had gone to watch the Canada vs El Salvador soccer match on their big screen and they kept the volume down until the match started and then raised it just the right amount so we could hear but not be deafened. Altogether a super pleasant night out.

    Out of the three course dinner, in my opinion only the first course, beet salad, and the lobster in the second course are worth mentioning. The beet comes in chunks on the salad with various leafy greens, roasted nuts, and marinated roots. Dressing of it comes in a container for diners to top. Lobster is cooked to perfect and deshelled. My friend’s dessert came missing a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Apparently the kitchen had it written differently but our waiter went to the kitchen and backed up by the description on menu for diners.

    Our waitress was excellent as was the food. The hostess was very rude and condescending. Our reservations were for 5:30 and was rudely told our reservation was not till 630 and table was not ready even though one 1 or 2 tables were in use She then sat us at what I considered worse table in house threw menus and cutlery on table and walked away without a word. Will try again but if same hostess is still there and as rude as she was last time I will never go to this restaurant again.

    Great place, surprised how large it was inside. Staff were excellent, didn’t rush us through the evening as we were there to visit friends, as well as eat. Pleasantly surprised at the very reasonable prices. Lamb shank for $18, right in downtown. Everything loved their meals.

    We had friend from the mainland visiting and our group had 4 adults and 3 minors. Love that the Sticky Wicket has an area not only inside but upstairs on their lovely rooftop patio were we decided to plant ourselves last minute. The staff were very accommodating, we had one of our group members in a wheelchair and they had an elevator she could come up to the rooftop on. The service, food and timing was all good and drinks were great! Perfect place on a sunny afternoon... even rooftop beach volleyball court

    We went to "the sticky" as it was one of the few downtown restaurants open Christmas Eve and we had also had dinner there Christmas Eve last year. Last year was much better! Most of us had the burger and beer special and added sides. Who knew a side of onion rings could cost $8.25... While tasty, the burgers were way overcooked and the buns were very dry. I was fine but three others that ate the same burgers were racing for the bathroom once we arrived home. Not our best experience there but our expectations were not very high to begin with. The beer was cold and the food was warm. Our server was great and we didn't have to wait long for anything.

    I am always very pleased with the food and service at the Sticky Wicket. The steak and lobster was exceptional value and perfectly cooked. Being a pub the noise level is louder than I like. That was because of the music which was too loud for me.

    We used open table to make reservations. We checked policy about minors (kids are 17 & 18 yrs old) prior to making the reservation. When we got to Sticky Wickett, the hostess was engrossed in a lengthy phone conversation. When she finally looked up, she asked my kids for ID. I explained that the kids were not 19 yet. The hostess refused to seat usas the entire family section was reserved for a group an hour later. It was totally empty at the time we arrived. I assured the hostess that we would be quick and would leave within the hour. She refused and sent us away. I believe the hostess name was Michelle. Additionally she went on to say negative things about the open table app and how it doesn't function with their system. This was after I asked why the pub was showing seating availability when the seating section was not available. As I do research through open table and review menus carefully to ensure the entire family is able to find something on the menu that they would enjoy to eat, I was not impressed with the lack of consideration, blatant disregard for my time and the negativity. I would highly recommend a course in customer service. My ratings are low because I didn't get to try the food.

    The service was excellent, which was appreciated since the food was not so great. We started with dry ribs, which were pretty tasty but lacking some sort of dip. My friends gluten free bun was atrocious, and while she was still upbeat about it "at least they offer gluten free" she did not touch the bun. (The server removed the charge, which was appreciated). Everything about our experience, besides the service, was just so-so. With so many great downtown restaurants available, I can say with confidence, we won't be back to the sticky wicket... At least for a meal.

    We arrived for our reservations about 25 minutes early. When we arrived, the restaurant was about only half full with many tables marked as reserved. It was surprising to us that we had to wait over 10 minutes for the host to find a table for our party. We were finally taken to a table only large enough for 2 in the bar area - where we later asked to be reseated for a table large enough to accommodate our party of 4. We ordered the baked brie for an appetizer - it was a fairly bland dish, served slightly warmed. When it came to ordering our mains, we asked the server what her favorite dishes were and what she would order if she were ordering. She recommended the top dishes that her customers prefer, but couldn't give us her own recommendation. I ordered the salmon, which was served with sautéed vegetables and rice. The salmon was over cooked and dry. The sautéed vegetables and rice were cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the Mac and Cheese and it was phenomenal. Creamy with a generous amount of bacon mixed in with the pasta and baked until crispy on top. We only saw our server a couple of times during our meal, and she never checked back in after the food was delivered. Overall, the experience was just okay. Rough start, with one clear winner and a couple of misses. Given the wealth of amazing places to eat in Victoria, this one doesn't live up to the potential it could or should be.

    We went to the Sticky Wicket because the name suggested an English Pup. Unfortunately, this was absolutely not the case. There was no decor, no food items, no atmosphere that suggest an English Pub other than one display of sporting goods that had a Cricket bat in the display. If the restuarant is going to continue using the same name I suggest they work up a better menu and decor otherwise change the name and there will be no disappointment.

    Pub style, family dining but separate from the actual pub (and any antics there). Good food, good beer. Kid friendly food with healthier options! High chairs, colouring etc. as well. Tasty, well priced food. Love this as an local owned restaurant and a great alternative to chains and the average family style restaurants. Will be back soon!
