Very charming, cozy and warm French bistro. The burger was one of the best I've had and the steak was excellent too. We weren't as impressed with the frites - but overall it was a nice delicious meal.

Two couples for dinner. All the food was excellently prepared with fresh ingredients. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and the beef cheeks felt apart in your mouth. Will be back soon.

The place was packed so I sat at the bar and the waiter was so good to me and the atmosphere was alive. I order the duck which I have never had on it's own before and it was so good. Ended up meeting some really nice people while I was there and thoroughly enjoyed myself

No other steak in the city compares. Don't even bother. The no reservations/waitlist makes it tricky to plan for a special evening. Good for nights when you have the whole evening. Go put your name on the list, then go to Venetos for a cocktail. They'll text you when there's a table available. Well worth the wait.

My girlfriend and I decided to try this place after asking a few locals about a good restaurant.....and we weren't disappointed at all. The interior looked just like a brasserie in Paris and the food was just as good. We decided to order just tapas instead of mains to sample the variety of food and we excellent pate, fresh oysters,... More

I know, I know, it's hard to get in, but we've figured out a routine (not telling). Not only is the food consistently good, but it's surprisingly good value considering the status and quality of the restaurant—and the service is great.

With a buddy so the romantic setting was wasted on us lugs. Food was very good, as was the drink. Menu selections were small, though. Relaxing atmosphere. Very fine waitress, and quite gorgeous, though again my buddy was a wet blanket when talking about observing her wedding ring! But we still had a great meal!!!!! (and there was no wait... More

Once again we had the opportunity to dine at Brass when we were in Victoria. Marc and his staff were great, food was fantastic. Wish I lived closer!
