We ate here whilst staying at the Oswego. Our first experience was fantastic, the food was first class and the service excellent. We enjoyed the experience so much we decided to visit again on our last evening. This time we were disappointed, the food quality was not as good (small touches like Sauce on the fish were missing) and our... More

We were staying just near here and thought we would give it a try, and we are glad we did. It was not very busy and looking in from outside we thought that maybe we were a little under dressed (Jeans, polo shirt and hiking shoes), but remembering some of the other reviews we ventured in. We were immediately at... More

The location is great just up from the inner harbour - the menu has very good selections - the seafood is fresh - the service is excellent. A little pricey but worth it.

After a long walk, and being quite hungry, we came upon the Harbour House. It looked fancy but we were assured that our casual attire was quite fine. There was a french flair to the restaurant and the cuisine. Waiter was proper and very efficient, but not stuffy. We both had a seafood selection that was very good. A great... More

Loved everything about this from the friendliness of the staff to the excellence of the food. Our waiter was very knowledgable, suggesting appropriate food combinations and drinks but also had a tremendous sense of humour, which meant we never stopped laughing all the time we were there, except to eat. The creme brûlée was the best I have ever tasted... More

We came here for dinner as part of a wedding reception, we were taken to a area away from the main restaurant, the waitresses were great service was wonderful, food was prompt and on time, wine was delicious. I ordered the Filet Mignon and my boyfriend got the steak and lobster, the kids all had spaghetti. I would have to... More

The wait staff should be on stage, they were so entertaining and humorous. However, that talent doesn't necessarily translate into good service in a restaurant. They could tone down the act and provide better attention to patrons. Food was pretty good but for the price I would go somewhere else.

We really enjoyed our meal in this restaurant. I thought the service was a bit off, but it could be that they were just very busy and seated us without reservations anyway. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and a nice menu. We were both in the mood for pasta and ordered two different pasta dishes, which were both fantastic.... More

The food is pretty good, hubby loved his lamb chops, my ribs were different but good. The best part actually was the service. Our waiter was the most humorous and charming mature man with the best personal stories of his ancesters. He made our experience there wonderful.

The title of this review is the these of the Victoria Harbour House Restaurant, which is located just a block or so off the inner harbor near where the Victoria Clipper docks. It is an upscale restaurant with white tablecloths and tuxedoed waiters but you can come as you are and there are a range of appetizers and smaller dishes... More
