“Return visit met expectations for special event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I visited the Fish House from out of town 3 months ago with colleagues, and brought my husband back for our 20th anniversary. As requested, they seated us promptly on the veranda with Jennifer as our server. They even printed a special "Happy Anniversary" card for us; simple gesture but rather nice. They treated us with an amuse bouche of buschetta; we then had the Dungeness crab cakes as an appetizer. They also brought bread with lobster oil (they're very proud of it, but I couldn't really find anything lobster-y about it). We shared the Seafood Platter for 2, beautifully arranged, that included brochettes of prawns and scallops, Alaskan king crab, ahi tuna, grilled salmon, and vegetables. All perfectly cooked. After all that healthy food, I figured something decadent was appropriate so I had the Sticky Toffee pudding which is really toffee topping poured on top of vanilla ice cream - very good. With two beers and a bottle of wine, our bill came to over $200, but I figured that's only $10/year for 20 years of marriage so it was worth it! A lovely September evening enjoying the greenery of Stanley Park and the seafood of the Pacific. (The only down side to our visit is that Friday can be noisy, so perhaps a week night would be quieter.)

“Excellent seafood, nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

If you love seafood, this is a place you'll want to try. The dishes we had were fresh and flavorful, and the preparations were not the just the standard cookbook recipes you might find anywhere else, but showed a little creativity.

Yes, it is a bit expensive, so this isn't an every day kind of place, but for a special occasion it is a very good choice.

“Afternoon Tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My daughter and i had afternoon tea at the Fish House on a Sunday afternoon. The setting is beautiful and we had a window seat overlooking the park. It was very busy so we didn't really need to make the reservations. The food was really nice but it definitely is not lunch. We made the mistake of not eating lunch before we came, and we were a little hungry when we left. I didn't think the price was too expensive as I have had tea in Victoria for $30-45/person so $24/person wasn't too bad. I wouldn't go all the time, but it would be nice for a treat or for visitors.

Thanks for the review, Christine M! Afternoon Tea is historically a lighter snack served in the late afternoon early evening. For those with voracious appetites (like me!), I'd recommend ordering our Salmon Trio to accompany the tea service, or something sweet off of our dessert menu as well! Happy dining!
