What a fabulous establishment with great service and food! We especially loved the truffles at the end of our meal and had to buy more on our way out. Will definitely be back soon!!

Great food, great service. Menu has such a nice variety was difficult to choose! The chocolates and merchandise on the way out is a great idea. Haven’t been here for a while. Will be back soon.

What a great spot. Setting was nice and cozy, food was quick and was spot on for taste. We loved to hear you made all your deserts in house so we couldn't go wrong with any of them ! We even picked up a few truffles on our way out. We had a very nice dinner - thanks

I usually really enjoy the food so this may be an anomaly but I tried a special pizza and it was incredibly bland and the decorative arugula was more like a salad on top of a pizza. A sprinkling would be better.

We stopped going to Spinnakers several years ago because the quality of the food had declined. I'm also celiac - not too many options on the menu for me. This visit was OK - not stellar but OK!

Great atmosphere, as always. Delivery time for appetizer after ordering was longer than usual, despite the restaurant not being completely full. My two companions enjoyed their meals. My rice bowl with tofu and extra shrimp was delivered with cold tofu perched on the cold rim of the bowl, and cold, cold shrimp in a side dish. Presumably the tofu had cooled while we enjoyed our appetizer. While I was advised that the extra shrimp would be "baby shrimp" (no problem there), there was no indication that the extra shrimp would be served cold in a side dish. Our server was excellent.

Our server was delightful. She gave us lots of time to decide, and was happy to tell us her favourites when we asked her. She had such an engaging personality that she really added to our experience. We all had the seafood chowder and it was delicious.

Our waiter was new. and left a lot of opportunity for quality service. His timing and level of attention overall were not good. RE: drinks: I didn't order right away while I was deciding, and then was not asked again. I added it to my food order. I was never asked again if i wanted another ($14 drink opportunity). My husband had to ask for a refill on his drink, and after more than 10 minutes, the waiter had to be reminded. The water bottle on the table was empty more often than full, and the waiter had to be asked to fill it. RE Food: We came for Dine-Around, but we were told only the $30 menu was available. I was the only guest who ordered this. I had the BC Foraged Morel Mushroom Fettuccini which contained so much roasted garlic, I could not finish the dish. I ate enough that I did not comment to the staff. - I will not order again. My pork belly appetizer was good. others were generally satisfied. Our company had asked for avocado on his sandwich. The food arrived without and the waiter had to be flagged down to ask about it - at which time we were told there was no avocado available. (opportunity to be proactive before and/or as the food was delivered) Dessert menus were requested, and put on the table, but was not followed up on quickly. our company was at 1st inclined to have dessert, but changed their mind while we waited.

We had a very enjoyable experience at the restaurant. The view from the top floor is spectacular, I would highly recommend it. We had an issue with 2 of our orders regarding the food temperature. The servers were outstanding to resolve our issues in the kindest most professional way. We will definitely return!

The menu you publish online lists Shepherd's Pie for lunch. I had especially looked forward to having this item. However, it turned out that you were not serving it on Dec. 28. Disappointing. - The setting and the room and view are very nice. However, the area by the window down where we were was very noisy making it hard to carry on a conversation. That, combined with the unavailability of shepherd's pie, makes it unlikely we will return.

Fantastic restaurant! We were with our 10 year old, and had been a bit delayed for our reservation as we walked from Salish RV Park. All the staff we encountered were lovely and made our son feel special. All 3 of us loved the food, too!

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

High-flying hotel bars in Victoria

Don’t expect to find any imports here: The beer doesn’t travel that far. In fact, it’s brewed right on site. So grab a Lion’s Head Cascadia Dark Ale, take a seat and enjoy the waterfront view. Make sure you’ve built up an appetite, too: The chef here is all about local ingredients, and from the local water shrimp melt to the Cache Creek beef flank steak, the BC flavour is apparent in every bite.

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

The messiest, juiciest burgers in Victoria

Although they only have three burgers on their menu, Victoria’s only gastro brewpub has spent a lot of time perfecting them. Their vegetarian BC Beet & Lentil Burger featuring spicy sprouts, malt vinegar pickled cabbage, and tzatziki rivals their meaty Brewpub Burger. And don’t even get us started on the Braised Pulled Pork Sandwich with Cascadia dark ale BBQ sauce and aioli – we’re drooling just thinking about it! Grab yourself one of their own superb craft beers and just try to decide between the three. We dare you.
