Consistently good food and service

Bisque is one of our go-to's for lunch, with the occasional dinner. The food is always fresh and tasty. I love the Hunter's toast! The french fries are very good and salads crunchy and flavorful.

I first reviewed the Bisque in 2013, my second review actually. Back in 2013 it was very good and today I found it to be excellent. It was a family celebration and all courses were great. I started with the spinach salad - the best in town. Lots of spinach as well as fresh pear, pine nuts and a fantastic... More

We have such great things about this place by so many. We just did not have a good experience. Service was slow and the food was not just bad, but awful. Things that were pretty basic. So we assumed that they just prepare them that way. Anyway, don't take my word for it as many people like it. Give it... More

It was a dark and rainy night and my wife and I headed out for a quiet dinner with a few of our neighbors. It was Halloween and we just had to get away from all the ghosts and goblins creeping around our streets. We wanted comfort food and quiet enough for a good chat. We were not disappointed. We...

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. I went with high hope but found the deco and food average while the price is above average. Service is fantastic. Will try again to make sure if my friend's recommendation is justified.

This is a hidden gem in Courtenay. The service was fantastic and the food even better! I had the Snapper in Oyster Sauce. The portion was huge and the flavours to die for. My husband had Schnitzel in Wild Mushroom Sauce and he couldn't stop raving about it. The wine list is good and provides great value for the offerings.... More

I have had lunch here and the food is excellent. They have a very tasty homemade soup - my fave on rainy days! They looked like they had some very interesting dinner menu ideas - so I will be back to try them! The only thing bringing this place down is the decor is kind of bland - but as... More
