I have not been to Fluid in a few years because it seemed to be a younger atmosphere that did not appeal to me or my hubby. We went for dinner this past Friday and was very happy with our experience. Impressed with how they are supporting local businesses but still was affordable and tasted amazing. Very friendly and impressive... More

Keeping my fingers crossed that this restaurant gets settled, apparently management keeps changing and menu keeps changing. Could also be staff changes. I've had to die for, mouth watering Rib Eye steak, garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables back in 2013/14 with a full bodied smooth Chilean Malbec. Dining partner had the same with grilled chicken breast that was also... More

We (10 year old daughter, my wife and myself) have been there new years eve. It is a pub, so our expectations weren't too high. We got a nice cosy place (armchairs at the fireplace) right away. The service was fast, friendly and helpful. My daughter had a poutine that she enjoyed, a giant smoothie and a salad. My wife... More

Took forever to get our meals and then my chicken was so dry and overcooked that I could not even chew it. The mushrooms were like shoe leather. My husbands ribs were disgusting in taste and no meat. Potatoes were cold. One of the worse meals we have had in the Comox Valley. Terrible food, no food quality at all... More

I just got home from Fluid's. My hamburger was dry and hard. I couldn't eat it and sent it back. I was not charged for my meal, but I won't eat there again. My friends were also disappointed in their meals, and said they would never go back. The food used to be really good there, but I think there... More

There wasn't much of a selection in Courtnay of places to eat which is why we chose Fluid, but it wasn't bad. The food was okay and it was a bit noisy but the atmosphere and the service was pleasant. Would try it again if we are in the area.

I came in tonight and was turned away because a table of 16 was coming in. The table wasn't even there yet and they were HOLDING ALL FOOD ORDERS until the table came in and ordered their food. Ridiculous. We were just going to get a small appie like nachos and they said they couldn't guarantee I could be out... More

The food is just okay and I find it noisy in the restaurant. It is more a meeting place for a 20`s crowd that want to have a social time and drink.
