I'll start by saying that I don't mind going out for a nice (expensive) dinner every once in a while. However, if I am going to spend $35 on an entree, I do expect a certain level of quality and service. I would say this restaurant falls short here. (I don't consider myself a snob, although nothing I write here... More

Awesome menu that is both tasty and fun. If you are lover of wine, the wine cellar is excellent as is the Sommelier. Location is great right in the heart of the down town shopping area.

We had a wonderful New Years Eve dinner at Escabeche. The service was incredible. Travis and Josh were amazing! Travis was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The winter sangria was delicious. The food was excellent too. Very high quality and good portion sizes as well.

We took the in laws to dinner here. I don't know why our food experience was so bad given the other reviews...perhaps the chef was on vacation. This may have been the worst restaurant meal I've ever had. I had squash ravioli.... It was mighty challenging to locate the squash centres amidst the jumbo coasters of thick pasta. All covered...

Very pleasant dining room. Window tables are most popular. The hotel states a non-cell phone use policy, however, we did have one rather selfish family who chose to Skype their friends during dinner. It would have been nice if the hotel had enforced the policy.

We ate breakfast at Escabeche at the Prince of Wales on a recent stay. The service was high end professional. The food was top notch. The ambience and lovely and we had a window table overlooking the street to boot. The coffee was the best coffee I have had in a long time (and I consider myself a coffee snob).... More

Great food, wonderful old-fashioned setting in the Prince of Wales hotel, great service. The staff are attentive without being overly so and in particular Fred, the sommelier, is very knowledgeable and helpful. The Irish Coffee needs a bit of work though - I am not at all fond of cream from a can..........
