Mussels to die for !

Fluid was recommended on our travels from the Comox ferry heading for Nanaimo. We were seated right away on the patio and served promptly as well. Three of us shared two orders of the mussels, a Caesar salad and grilled prawns. I would go again for either of the seafood dishes. The atmosphere is a... read more

We expected pub food, instead we found creatively prepared staples, like calamari and interesting alternatives like carne asada tacos!

We stopped in by chance as the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. We saw quite a few cars in the parking lot so thought let's give it a try. What an unfortunate choice. First of all, they did not have the menu item I wanted to order so I had to choose something else. Then we waited... More

We have been to this restaurant many times for their Award winning Seafood Chowder and have recommended this restaurant to our friends. Today we ordered the Award Winning Seafood Chowder and basically got a Potato Chowder.

Food was expensive and very average. No a lot of flavor or creativity in the product or menu. Our server had way too much "princess" attitude for our liking. She treated us like we were bothering her. We will never go back!

Every time I eat at fluid I always have great service, and the food is always amazing, tonight especially, I had troubles deciding what to order but our server recommended her favorite and definitely was not disappointed in the portion size! I had to bring some home with me. Definitely worth the drive up from Campbell River will be back... More

The food wasn't bad. Pretty average. It tasted good and seemed of good quality, but nothing I was overly excited about. The staff was pleasant albeit a bit slow. I would eat again if in the neighbourhood, but wouldn't seek out.

Waited to be acknowledged at table on a Friday evening 45 minutes before closing. Staff more concerned about chatting and discussing each other at bar. Food took 40 minutes and was served in two shifts for a table of 4. Had to actually flag someone down for a second drink. Chicken quesodilla was bland one had more jalapeños than chicken.... More

We stopped in for their $10 Monday burger happy hour between 2:30-5pm. With a $4 craft beer it is good value. The food was fine, nothing note worthy. However the $6 mojito was not worth the money - stick with the basics and you should be okay. The service was very pleasant. The atmosphere is modern - a bit to... More
