Great service! This restaurant has been around forever and they don't disappoint. Seafood ravioli was fabulous, perfectly seasoned and great portions. Crab and shrimp in every bite! Had a Bellini and it was sensational. They still put the cutie coloured plastic animal in the glass, on the mountain of slushy goodness 😊

Usually when we want a great meal we choose the Bold Knight because it is consistently good so it meets our expecations for a higher priced but delicious meal. Last night was a special occasion so we chose higher cuts of meat with 8 oz lobster tail and prawns. The seafood chowder rates a 10/10 and the dinner salad is... More

Our friend chose Bold Knight for his birthday dinner (party of 5) for a couple reasons: 1. Food is good 2. Close to where most of us lived Now having been here before, I knew the food was good but the restaurant needs a facelift. Be that as it may, the old girl puts out good food...maybe. Drinks ordered, food... More

Very old restaurant and we found the musty smell overwhelming when we first arrived. Extensive (and expensive) menu but everyone found something to their liking. The meals were just OK and certainly not the high end experience we had anticipated.

We went for the 8 Oz steak and Atlantic lobster special. Steaks were cooked perfectly. The lobster was superb. Friendly staff, nice ambience. Way better than that chain steakhouse. Best steak and lobster in Nanaimo, bar none....

Going or gone down hill! The chicken breasts consisted of two thin slaps of what seemed liked chicken fillets ,definitely not a chicken breast. Washroom was freezing cold , I felt I was in the janitors mop closet! The serving staff looked gloomy and uninviting!

We chose Bold Knight for New Years eve dinner, after a poor experience there during the summer. This time it was one of the best meals we have ever had. Great service, steak and prawns cooked perfectly, and served piping hot. Excellent house salad and hot bread. This is the Bold Knight we love dining in. The atmosphere is elegant,... More

Firstly, let me say visiting this restaurant was like time travelling back to the 60's when the medieval revival was big. Sadly the Bold Knight decor is truly passe. To their credit the tables were well presented with linen cloths and napkins and little Christmas decorations. The salad starter was off-putting.Iceberg lettuce and limp vegetables made us wary of the... More
