Everything was so good!
Portions for main were a bit small but overall had a lovely time! Loved our server can’t remember his name but he made our night!
The pizza was the best I have ever had! The Caesar salad needs work, it does not match the quality of the food.
The orecchiette pasta with broccoli and sausage was superb.
Our table was rather noisy. We would request a table in the atrium the next time.
terrific fresh sheet. Server, Haida, was friendly and helpful. 10/10 would come again. Kid friendly too.
I visit Victoria from Vancouver less than once a year, but the last few times have made zambri’s my first choice for an evening out. Last night’s meal was superb, from start to finish, from a beautiful summer cocktail to the amaro at the end. In between, crisp absolutely freshest salad, delightful homemade agnolotti, and a protein dish I can’t begin to describe. Well done, again
Definitely eat off the fresh sheet. I think having a sparkling water as an option would be the only addition. Otherwise, perfect!
Wonderful! I can’t remember the last time we all left a restaurant feeling wowed. The host was thoughtful and so helpful when we needed some more space for our sister with a baby. The ambience and food were excellent. Would highly recommend!
In general great experience. It was a little unfortunate our anniversary table for 2 was seated right next to a big boisterous group, but we also understand the challenges with the restrictions right now.
Overall- great food/ service.
Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere. Awesome food
Great Friday night!
Wonderful service, setting, and food! Will definitely go again!
We had a wonderful dinner at Zambris
The food was delicious service good but the noise level of the wooden chairs on the stone floor as hard on my nerves
When I’m visiting Victoria for work, I make it a point of booking here because the pizza is simply and perfectly executed! There is a chill ild school vibe running throughout the space which also has some beautiful atrium seating (request it).. 5 stars!
This really is one of the best Italian restaurants on the west coast serving authentic Italian food but still rooted in local food sources.
Loved our dinner. Haven't been back since covid. Food was phenomenal. Loved every bite.
I reqstd a dessert with happy bday written for my Girlfriend in opentable special request. I was not even asked for it. Positively the vibe of the restaurant is very good and the food quality is also very good.
Hi Rohit, Our sincere apologies for missing your note! We hope you enjoyed otherwise and hope to see you again. Sincerely- The Zambri's Family.
My wife and I went to Zambri's for a date. We had a great time! The food and drinks were phenomenal. We split an appetizer of gnocci and crispy broccoli, and I had the halibut while my wife had the beef. It was all amazing. The service was friendly, the atmosphere wonderful.
Hi Tony, we are so glad that you and your wife joined us for date night! Thank you for the kind review. We hope to see you soon!
Staff are all wonderful and provided outstanding service for me and my bestfriend. The food was superb. Overall, we enjoyed our time spent in the restaurant and loved the food immensely.
Thank you Lyra!!
Did not like being seated out in the mall area. For an upscale restaurant it put a bad taste in my mouth.
Meal was average.
Will not be returning
Hello Kennedy, Thank you for your honest review. During COVID the open atrium area has been our most requested and celebrated seating area for our guests due to the spaciousness and air ventilation. Did you mention your seating preferences to any of our staff? We would have been happy to accommodate your requests as best as we could. Was there anything particular about your meal that was average? We strive to provide exceptional experiences when dining with us. Sincerely, Jayme Beaudry- GM
Amazing Italian food. Just like my Italian grandma.
Hi Robery, Italian Grandma's do it best and we are so glad we hit the mark! See you soon
Gorgeous food, interesting wine by the glass, slow service. I'd go back in a wink.
Thanks so much! We hope to see you soon. Due to COVID we have a lot of new staff members, and are working hard to add more staff to our team to expedite our service. Cheers
A beautiful atmosphere, and beautiful food! You can really taste the love in the food.
Thank you Michael! We love what we do and serving wonderful guests such as yourself.
Our experience was somewhat poor. Although the burrata salad was super impressive and the cocktails good, our main which we decided would be pasta both dishes made me think I could do better at home. The service was great and our girl was engaging and fun but the girl seating us was less so . I had not been here for a bit and it will take some time before I will go back.
We were really glad to get a Saturday night reservation here. Enjoyed the focaccia but it was a pricey extra- good selection of wines by the glass- We both had pasta. The servings were very generous but I was uninspired by the watery Gorgonzola sauce which came with my pasta. We did experience great service with friendly attentive table staff.
Hello Jea, Thank you for the review. We do make the foccacia in house daily and it is a labor of love. With the cost of food and the closure over the past 18 months we cannot afford to offer free items. I hope you can understand. I appreciate the feedback on the pasta and have passed it onto our kitchen team. So glad to hear that the service was friendly and attentive. We hope to see you again soon.
Great to be back to dining in for dinner - we enjoyed ourselves. My scallops of beef in a wild mushroom cream sauce were delish.
Thank you Eatlocal. Please dine with us again soon!
We appreciate that!
The food was very delicious but I think it would be a nice traditional Italian touch to include the focaccia bread
Food was delicious and we appreciated their flexibility to accommodate half portions for kids. The grilled zucchini and ling cod dishes had wonderful flavours. Would definitely order again.
Thank you Tracy!
Great atmosphere and good food!
I have never had a bad meal and last evenings was outstanding
Thank you Maureen. Our Chefs are really doing an amazing job.
The food is the star
Fresh, simple, elegant
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed
Excellent food and amazing atmosphere. Highly recommended
Thank you Danika for taking the time to write a nice review!
Good place to eat
Really nice family dinner at Zambri’s! Thank you for a lovely evening, excellent dinner and service.
We are glad you and the family enjoyed. We are so happy to be back open and doing what we love!
Just a lovely place to have dinner, always great food.
Hello Irene, we are so happy to be able to host you! Please come back soon.
This is word for word what I told my friend..
Dinner. We both had Haida halibut. It was perfectly cooked. With a cherry tomato vinagrette, potatoes (new, just enough and very tender), fried greens. I wished I had taken a photo of the menu. It was the special pesce.
Contorne: zucchini with lemon ..I can't quite remember.
Burrata with a cold bed off eggplant and bread crumb (somewhat like an antipasta). The words I am using don't do it justice.
Dessert was amazing. Amazing because it was boldly subtle.
It was a plain sponge pistachio cake with 4 or 5 pitted cherries. No fuss perfection. No frilly add-ons like whipped cream. But it was so good. Our server said when I commented, that that was a signature style of Peter's cooking.
We had Italian rosé, a decaf coffee. Not one thing wasn't excellent
Ambiance was good. Service was good. It is in the artrium building.
We look very forward to our next dining experience there. And I whole heartedly recommend it.
Our friends are now going to try it and we went based on a recommendation.
Thank you Valerie! We appreciate the details and are so glad you enjoyed. Thank you for recommending us. All the best!
Overall an exceptional experience. Always our first or second choice.
We go to Zambris for our Birthdays each year and have never been disappointed.
Always great. Great food, service and ambiance. Would highly recommend it for locals and out of town visitors. Can’t go wrong!
Thank you Mark!! We hope to see you soon.
