I wanted to do something special for my girlfriend's birthday. I requested a harbor view table for a romantic birthday meal. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We both tried the suggested drinks and meals that our server recommended. Food was delicious and we had a relaxing enjoyable evening. As it was a stormy evening the staff lit the... More

Been here several times when we stayed in the Chateau Victoria. View is great. Drinks are nice. Staff is fun. The live music is pretty good, but the space is tight. Had breakfast of Eggs Benedict on Sunday morning and they were delicious. Consistently good.

Gorgeous view and great service but the food was very disappointing. The meat was dry and the pasta was very plain. Will not return.

The service was good and very friendly but the food was really quite horrible. We went in for lunch but was given the small bites menu, so we tried it. What a mistake! tried Chicken wings(3 on plate) so dry and over cooked, sent back. New ones came back and it was night and day. Why they didn't look like... More

We attended breakfast here on our last day of our trip to Victoria. Partly because it was in our hotel and partly because of the reviews. I'm not sure our server was having a bad day, but she wasn't very friendly and it took forever to track down someone to get a second cup of coffee. There wasn't a huge... More

The food and view are worth every penny and it is great that there are so many eggs benny options including a one egg offering. They serve the cutest little muffins with brunch and even have gluten free cheese bread so no drama for gluten free diners.

Made a Rez and asked for a nice table by the window for a special evening. We were put at the very back of the second room, at a table for 4. No other diners in that section. Could not hear the music. And to get there we were taken past several vacant tables for two along the windows, closer... More
