New Chef and Menu
3 & 4 course pricing saves some money in this expensive restaurant.
The combination of tuna, scallop and lobster dishes was a delicious and decadent seafood feast.
We had 3 savoury courses and had no room for dessert. Each dish had a sauce and a creative combination of flavours and textures.
The wine selection by the bottle was extensive. Wine by the half litre is also available.
Service was friendly and attentive.
The room is dark wood panelled and close.
The restaurant deserves more attention because of the top quality food and presentation.
Not for the budget conscious.

This is a very quiet, limited seating restaurant. We tried the four course dinner with soup/salad, appetizer, main course and desert.
We especially appreciated the seafood appetizers and main of scallops and lobster respectively. Our waiter was very professional and timed the four courses very well.

On the Mark!
Surprised and delighted the senior couple (85+) who thought one course would suffice their small-ish appetites. However, the portions were right-sized and the food deliciously presented. So it was a three course night for all around the table, with patient and attentive table service.

On the Mark!
We had reservations inside the Grand Pacific for the Mark. It was a quiet evening and we had the room to ourselves. Service was super. Our only disappointment was the slowness of the food delivery. But otherwise, it was great. Our server, Martin took great care of us. We would highly recommend this venue if you are in Victoria and want to entertain. The table for 8 was set in a square which made it very easy to have multiple conversations at same time.

Best food with slowest service
Really great kitchen, but slowest service I have ever seen in a restaurant of this class.
But finally the quality of food is worth to whait....

If you are a classic romantic the moment you step behind the curtained door you are transported to that romantic place of your dreams. Candlelit tables, cushy ambiance and shimmering glass. Complete with that chandelier, you can never forget a chandelier. Once led to the table your experience begins. Choose either from the three course or four course tasting menu. Albeit I had five but I digress. The Rose wine was lovely. Each dish was imacculately designed with care and I just had to take a picture before trying the edible work of art.
The fragrance of each dish also were prime star players in the very flavorful dishes. It was well worth it to step into that world of class and elegance and feel right at home. Cheers!

My wife & I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here last week. We've never eaten here and our first time was a resounding success! The restaurant is just blocks away from where we stayed, so the short walk in the nice neighborhood was very nice. I left a note on Open Table that this was an anniversary dinner, so when we arrived we were greeted with "Happy Anniversary!" This was a nice touch, as was the classy way our overcoats were taken before we were seated. We were given a very quiet table at the back of the restaurant and made to feel that we were the only couple there. The waiter was knowledgeable without being snobby, thoughtful, courteous and attentive. The 4 course meal was phenomenal & timely! We WILL return for another meal!

Dinner for Two
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at the restaurant. Our waiter had excellent timing and new the menu. Plus he also new the cocktail menu, amazing. This restaurant views the client as the one paying the bill not the other way around thus it makes a big difference to the gratuity part of the bill. I enjoy giving a tip but only when I have received good service and food otherwise forget it.
