Description: Stage is a small-plate restaurant and wine bar located across from the Belfry Theatre in Victoria's trendy Fernwood neighbourhood. Stage supports local farmers, food artisans, and serves a variety of tapas-style dinner offerings. Options range from duck confit and crispy chicken to made-in-house sausage, vegetarian dishes and the city's largest cheese selection. The 55 seat restaurant's vibe is upbeat and funky while maintaining a classy and unique feel. Brick walls, reclaimed hardwood floors, hanging candles, and rotating local art, all combine to create a truly local Victoria experience. Stage has also won several awards including Top 10 new restaurant in 2005 by En Route Magazine, Restaurant of the Year by Vancouver Magazine, and a Silver Medal at the 2013 and 2014 Vancouver International Wine Festival."Winning over patrons from Fernwood and beyond"! - N.Y. Times

Trendy little place was quite busy but were told to come back in an hour when the play at the Belfry was starting, and space would come available. It was worth coming back for. Good wine selection, food was very enjoyable. thourghly enjoyed the tapas style presentations.

As much as I do, you can't help but enjoy Stage. And though the restaurant has recently changed hands, the quality of the food has not slipped. And getting Steven back behind the bar was a major coup for the new owner. We're regulars and find that the menu changes just enough to not get boring and the board specials are nearly always enticing. The wine list suits our tastes and is reasonably priced. In terms of quality, variety and bang-for-buck this is one of Victoria's real gems.

At a recommendation from Ian and Anne at Abbeymoore Manor, we went to Stage for dinner our first night in Victoria. The atmosphere was trendy without being cold and the service and food were excellent - don't miss the housemade charcuterie!

I a hippy/uppy/trendy location the Fernwood area has grown up over the past few years. This used to be a favourite spot for wine and tapas but the value may have have slipped a little. My last visit was not as successful as past visits. Will I give ithe restaurant another try, yes.
