Delicious seafood

Bisque is so good! If you like seafood it is a must! The menu and specials all looked so yummy it was hard to choose. I had a salad with coconut shrimp and loved it! Very nice service too.

Our Wednesday lunch at Bisque was good but I was still expecting better from the over-the-top reviews. We made a 1pm reservation and were given a booth (one of two) by the window. Worn upholstery with a sort-of-sad sidewalk view. In addition to the menu there are some daily specials. The wine menu is limited but offers some nice less... More

My husband and I went to Bisque for lunch. We didn't like the bisque or anything else we had that day. Maybe it was us, but we were very disappointed. We thought we paid too much for what we had too. We will not go back, nor will we recommend this restaurant.

After hearing about this place, we went to try it for lunch. The quality didn't disappoint and the price was very reasonable. My wife had crab cakes which she found to be the best for crab meat in B.C. (not stretched with starches) though it mainly mechanical meat (no chunks - just shredded crab meat). Accompanying salad was very fresh... More

Original art on the walls; very friendly servers; Had Filet Mignon and was cooked perfectly and reasonably priced. Would go again.

I had read reviews of this restaurant that rated this as being a great place to eat. We went early Friday night and the food was some of the best I have had in a long time. The food is local and is of excellent quality and the preparation was superb. Unless you go at 5:00pm you will likely need... More

Left the menu's alone ordered from the chalk board which had 3 delicious sounding specials of the day. The co-owner and our waitress made sure we were well taken care of and brought us a bottle of delicious red wine (local winery) at a reasonable price.

This is Courtenay's hidden gem. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food was superb!

I've been for lunch here once before and it was very good so my husband and I decided to try it. We each had the special soup and salad and both were delicious. The sandwich was a combination I hadn't had before - shrimp and egg salad. Yummy. Other people in the restaurant were having more substantial meals and the... More

I agree with another reviewer that Bisque would certainly be worthy of 5 stars if it could be cozied up a bit. I too enjoyed the artwork but some warmer earth tones, table linens, more upscale patterned fabric chairs, and some little white lights and candles would work wonders. Because the food is a 5 for sure but atmosphere is... More
