Very special dinner

We saved Norwoods for our last night in Uclulet, and it was memorable! I think it seats around 40 total so it's intimate and reservations are highly recommended. The atmosphere was cozy and modern at the same time. Our server had been there for many years and also happened to be the sommelier... read more

Our meals were first-rate from beginning to end. The taste sensations were so exquisite that I found myself practically purring from time to time. The broth that came with the duck and morel mushroom wontons was delicious. The cod and mussels almost melted in my mouth. The cheese cake was magnificent! We didn't do the wine pairings, but I can... More

We were told it was a fantastic restaurant.we didn't book but I would probably do as it gets quite busy.the kitchen is open and you can see them cooking and preparing your food in front of you.the food we had was very good,but a little on the pricey...

Did dinner here for a special occasion. We had the west coast seafood experience between us to start after a couple of house adapted Negronis that were perfect aperitifs. Beautifully presented and top quality. It was all good but the tempura of halibut sticks in the mind. I then had the catch of the day which was salmon in an... More

We hadn't done any prior research into eating out in Ucluelet so referred to TripAdvisor for some assistance whilst we were there. Norwoods was No.1 at that time so we thought we'd give it a go for a genuine West Coast meal experience. Well, we couldn't have chosen a better place and were so lucky on a number of counts;...

Our meal was absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious!! The presentation was stunning, the service was top-notch, and the food, well let's just say we have never had such a quality meal. I have not made so many embarrassing "Mmmm, Mmmmmm, ohhhhh, ahhhhh!" sounds at a meal before! My husband was just shaking his head at me, but he enjoyed it just as... More

We had heard and read lots about Norwoods. For us Norwoods fully lived up to its positive reputation. The food was delicious and the restaurant staff were enthusiastic, helpful and very friendly. We found a very special local white wine (Blue Grouse) which went well with the seafood we had chosen. It was a very special anniversary meal for us... More

Excellent service and food. What a great way to wrap up our trip. The food was local & fresh. Our server was very knowledgeable and offered excellent wines to match our meals. We would return on our next visit to the area.

Very popular restaurant. Nice decor and service. Good wine selection, available in half glass servings to facilitate course pairings. The halibut wrapped in prosciutto was perfection. The albacore tuna, however, tasted "fishy" and the accompanying sauce tasted out of a jar. Not really even edible. This is an expensive restaurant. The halibut was worth the price and more. The tuna,however,... More
