Nothing to write home about.

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!

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.

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

Had some delicious mac & cheese. Kids menu was good. Wish I could have eaten from it as the portions were adult sized! Bellinis are a bit too sweet though. But overall, it's a fine place to go on a soccer weekend.

Ordered the fish tacos and found them to be bland and uninspired. Cook's decision to cover them in aioli did not hide this fact. My friends had similar complaints about their dishes and apps as well. To top it off, took about an hour and a half to actually get our food.

Fluid used to be our favorite restaurant but a menu change last fall changed that. Now we can hardly find anything we want for dinner on the menu. The food and service are still fine but our favorite items are gone from the menu and the menu choices are just not to our liking anymore.

Stopped by at 11:00am this past Sunday for breakfast not realizing the restaurant is currently not open for breakfast. Could have been a deal breaker but it was almost noon so I tried the Stilton Blue Cheese & Bacon Salad as my heart was set on some bacon! Nicely balanced fresh delicate salad with the pop of blue cheese, smoky... More
