Late lunch

Lovely location: worth a look around the garden. We were late for lunch hour but were still very nicely served. Tasty soups

My family had high tea at the Gatsby Mansion. Loved the old wood floors, antiques, and stained glass. The beautiful white building felt like the perfect location for tea. The finger sandwiches, scones and desserts were perfect... and less expensive than Empress

Loved the cozy space and the surroundings. New cook, needs a little more practice I think on cooking salmon.

Three of us enjoyed the experience of High Tea for the first time. The decor along with a view of the ocean was fabulous. $32.00 each. Tea was served in individual China teapots and cups, that reminded me of the ones my grandmother had in her cupboard for "special guests or if the queen ever visited". We all had a... More

We walked in for breakfast without a reservation as a party of 6. I do not recommend this!!! They were unable to seat us together, and they acted like they were slammed, (even though they only had 1 table in use). The hostess actually said she needed to check with someone to see if we could be seated. She then... More

When planning our girl’s weekend in Victoria, afternoon tea was at the top of our list. We were staying at the Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel and the Gatsby Mansion is just a short walk away, so we arrived a bit early. After chatting with one of the staff, we took a short walk around the grounds, which are beautifully done.... More

Spotted this restaurant in the harbor when we arrived on the clipper ship from Seattle. The architecture is quintessential charming Victoriana. We made reservations with the intention of having dinner before heading back to Seattle later that day. We ended up being late for our reservation but the staff graciously and quickly served us an excellent meal and we were... More

The older style homes and Inns are very enjoyable to sit and and partake of their food and drink and take in the surrounding fashions of the room itself. It was a joy to have tea there

We only went into the restaurant for breakfast. I found the hotel itself very interesting. The food was excellent, but the waiting was too long.

If you are expecting the chain experience walk on past the Gatsby Mansion. If you want a quaint experience in a revitalized older home stay at the Gatsby. Clean, spacious rooms; beautiful dining room open for meals and convenient to the ferry.
