First the good news. The restaurant design and ambiance are quite unusual and pleasing. Our appetizer Toast (crab and shrimp) was delicious. The mixed drinks were good. Everything else about the dinner ranged from bad to poor. The waiter was obsequious and patronizing. Our order...More

This restaurant was recommended as a good sea food venue by several people but certainly did not live up to expectations. The seafood menu selection was limited and the food was not great.More

Thanks for your review. We do not advertise ourselves as a seafood specific restaurant. We focus on our Farm-to-Table offerings as that is the core of who we are. We have our own 10-acre farm in North Saanich where we grow produce, cultivate honey, raise...More

Good food but the chef has thrown in so many things into the dish that all the competing flavors are a bit overwhelming. For example, the beef wellington was cooked to perfection but if you look at my picture, you can see dozens of ingredients...More

Food selection was not the greatest. Music and din of diners made it difficult to talk to anyone more than a metre away. My beef tenderloin was cooked nicely but not that tasty I am afraid.More

Yes, there is certainly street parking (if you are lucky) and there is also pay parking in either a covered garage or an open lot (your choice) within a block or so.

Hello! "10 Acres Kitchen", while we believe to be a lovely place to dine, does not have a patio. Our sister restaurants, "10 Acres Commons" & "10 Acres Bistro" both have wonderful outside seating. Thank you!
