We came here five years ago and the food was to die for. So we couldn't wait to come back. This time was a disappointment. The food was merely ok. Not great. There are a number of menu items for all tastes. Seafood and pasta was good. File minion was average. Pay close attention to what the waiter suggests and... More

Restaurant with classic menu. The quality of the food is reasonably, although perhaps less than the look of the restaurant suggests. It has quite a number of staff running around, without any noticable pact on the serving speed, though. We were really wandering what there tasks were. It was clear, though, that the boss was most of the time sitting... More

Excellent food, cute cottage dinning atmosphere, wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. We did steak/lobster for a birthday celebration- perfect and great service

Great service. Best salmon we had all trip and we tried it at four restaurants at least. Loved the quiet, white table cloth atmosphere instead of the loud pretentious club like scene at other places. Jacques was wonderful. Oysters Rockefeller beyond filling. Fresh yummy bread.

I want to be fair because the service and attentiveness was very good. Nice menu for all tastes. My wife and I had the steak and lobster. As stated in other reviews one of our steaks was over cooked. I requested medium rare. Got well done same as my wife ordered. Still good but not as ordered. Vegetables were prepared... More

We were recommended this restaurant by some friends who had visited previously. It was only a stones throw from our hotel so we decided to check it out. The server was a bit slow to welcome us when we arrived but once we were seated it was fine. Good food and service, the kitchen was able to make a change... More

Came in after a long day of sightseeing, a bit weary and worn. Menu was not extensive but well rounded for an adult patron. Drinks were good, service unhurried but not overly slow. Two very warm and tasty rolls were provided for the two of us, and a request for seconds provided. My husband was very pleased with his salmon,... More

Restaurant and atmosphere looked great upon arrival. Ordered mussels for appetizer--when they arrived, I put one in my mouth, took a bite and immediately spit it out as it tasted like what horse urine and feces smell like seriously no joke. My wife also tried one and said the exact same thing. We sent the mussels back. No apology from... More

Flew from Atlanta to Seattle and saled on the 3pm ferry to Victoria. We were exhausted. Checked in at our hotel and saw this place across the street. No wait for a table, excellent service. Nice wine list. The lobster bisque was great. Special was steak and lobster which was slighly overcoked but good. Would go again.
