“Light and Airy Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Went to this restaurant with a group of ladies for lunch and we all thought we would be back.
The decor is lovely, the menu prices are reasonable, the food was tasty and the coffee was excellent!

“Ideal Breakfast Meeting Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We found this to be a cozy place to enjoy a Saturday breakfast. Ask for a table next to a window. Service is good and the breakfast menu was creative. We both liked the Brie stuffed French toast smothered in berries and sauce. We did not feel rushed while enjoying a quiet atmosphere. The nautical mermaid shell theme made for a memorable experience. We plan to come back to try out their lunch menu.

“Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We are part of a breakfast group that try different dining establishments each Friday morning. We discovered Sea Glass shortly after it re-opened under new management. The breakfasts are awesome and repeat visits for lunch and dinner by members of the group prove them to be as good if not better.

“Watch out for uncooked food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Went here for dinner on Thanksgiving weekend hoping for a great meal I didn't have to cook! Service was mediocre, but the worst part was my husband's entree of pork was not cooked, actually cold and raw in the middle. Staff didn't seem to think it was an issue, actually asked if he would like to take it home and reheat it the next day - NO THANKS! My husband had stomach problems all night from this food. Contacted the owners by e-mail but never heard back from them. Definitely would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Entrees were over priced for what you got and not much care taken in the food preparation. All in all not a pleasant dining experience.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Friends of ours had recently been to Sea Glass and gave it a great review. Also, as there aren't that many good restaurants in Sidney, we were hoping it would become a new "go to" for great food on the Peninsula.

The appetizer we had was beautifully plated but the actual taste was fairly bland. This was unfortunately the case with the main as well. To be clear, the quality of the ingredients is very good, but the actual final meal was disappointing. My pork tenderloin was dry and a bit tough in parts, and the risotto which the waiter had emphasized was fantastic was just ok.

The other disappointing part of the experience was the wine list. 5 or 6 generic (BC Liquor Store top sellers) White's and the same in Red. The completely unimaginative wine list makes me feel like this was less of an off-night and more emblematic of the restaurant - It wants to be a great restaurant for the area, just doesn't know exactly how to get there yet.

For the quality of the ingredients, the food was reasonably priced. (low to mid $20s for all entrees). The service was friendly and efficient. I hope it improves.
