We get to Victoria every other year and have had a great evening meal at Harbour House during each trip. The food is consistent and excellent. The Caesar Salad, made at the table is one of the best you will experience. A little pricey but very good. We have had Bob as our waiter on our last two trips. He... More

Shrimp scampi is amazing!! The steak and lobster is good but not great!! The greek potatoes sounded exciting but actually were flat but nicely cooked. Loved the zucchini and real carrots. Very tasty!! The waiter was fabulous and verrrry helpful!

The Harbour House is a very nice place to dine. The décor is filled with history and the layout is good. We arrived without a reservation and they managed to seat us. We found the staff to be very friendly and our waiter was super. He had a fine sense of humor and made the meal that much better. The... More

We found this restaurant close to our hotel and after a day of walking, we couldn't have gone much further. But sometimes you just stumble into the nicest places. Our waiter, Bob, was dressed in a tuxedo. (Who wears tuxes anymore?) We were dressed casually, but made to feel right at home. The menu offered local items, lots of fish.... More

We had one of our business dinners at the Harbour House and were quite a large group but our server Bob made this such a seamless and enjoyable experience! The food was wonderful but honestly, it was Bob who made our night! You could tell he enjoys what he does and his witty banter had us in stitches. In all... More

While visiting Victoria, my wife and I had an opportunity to dine at the Victoria Harbour House Restaurant. We were not disappointed with the quality of the food. The service, from a very experienced waiter, was superb. It's a bit expensive, but patrons have to remember that this is Victoria - Inner Harbour. Stuff is just expensive here. We have... More

A very comfortable restaurant, surprisingly fancy without being at all pretentious. Both my wife and I have always found the food and service good, and the location is super.

Looked a bit more upscale than we were looking for on short notice after a long day of shopping but it was perfect Jeans were ok and Bob took great care of us. The Pasta and Trout were the faves including a gluten free option

From the friendly greeting from the host at the door to the delicious lemon cheesecake our dinner experience was perfect! Harbour House is a cozy yet classy setting. The service was superb. Our group enjoyed lobster bisque, a prawn pasta and chicken Athena, as well as the cheesecake. This is a great spot for a special dinner.
