Old Surrey still great
We have been going to the Old Surrey off &on since the 1970's. We went back for the Chateaubriand Special (prawns, ceasar salad, chateaubriand&lots of veggies, cherries jubilee) All but the salad were wonderful and worth the trip alone

We were very pleased with
We were very pleased with our dining experience, there isn't one thing to complain about. The servers were professional, friendly, knowledgeable, gave us some history of the property and its original owner from back in the early 1900's.....it was a very interesting and enjoyable evening. The food... well, well, well, well. :)::::: We had the Chateaubriand special, and everything was so flavorful - and there was lots and lots of food. The courses were all so unique in flavor and presentation that it would have been impossible for one boring moment to be had. The recommended wine was perfect, our flambé dessert was delightful. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions. It's quite possibly our finest dining experience to date.

Gem in the Rough
Old Surry Restaurant sits in the midst of Newton in an old converted house. However, the menu, food, wine and service could all be 5-star Paris! Whether ordering from the regular menu or enjoying one of the many "special" menus, everything is a delight for the palate. We discovered this restaurant when living in nearby North Delta and still go there several times a year ... usually with friends we've introduced to the place .... from Vancouver city. If we choose to drive THAT far to a restaurant, enough said. You get the picture.

Table Side Service
We so enjoyed the table side service, it just adds that special touch to your meal.

Glad we finally went
We went to the Old Surrey Restaurant for our anniversary. We had the chateaubriand 4 course meal offered only in July/August and it wasn't just a fantastic meal, it was an experience. I've been wanting to try out this local place, situated in a lovely 1918 house, for a few years now, and I am glad I did. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting great food in a unique restaurant.

Top quality south of the Fraser
The Old Surrey serves top quality French cuisine in a heritage home. They have an impressive wine list with a good offering of BC wines.

Downtown 5 star dining in Surrey
No need for a 1 hour drive to downtown Vancouver to enjoy fine wine, fabulous service and excellent table side cooking. Old Surrey Restaurant (72 ave, just west of King George) offers a most amazing Chateau Briand special that starts with shrimp, then table side prepared Caesar Salad, then the Chateau also prepared table side (and flambed) ending with Cherries Jubillee (also prepared table side). Wonderful food. Excellent service. Top notch. We will be back!

Perhaps the best restaurant dining experience EVER -- and there's been a few in 41 years of marriage -- trust me :)

Last of Fine Dining in my area. My only dislike is I prefer private "booth" seating.

Such a lovey dinner! So happy to have this restaurant in my city.

We were there this time to celebrate my husband's birthday -- it is always a treat to be there. The staff is wonderful as is the food.

Chateaubriand Special exceptional!
The Old Surrey Restaurant is a gem and we always turn to them when we're entertaining or celebrating a certain milestone. The service and food are outstanding and I appreciate that they use locally grown foods and meat. Their annual Chateaubriand Special is great value and features legendary table-side preparation and the portions are generous. If you prefer the lighter side of things, visit Bistro 72 located in the basement of the restaurant. The menu is completely different with smaller plates to share with an extensive drink/wine list. On the weekends, there is live music. If you've never eaten at Bistro 72 / Old Surrey Restaurant, give it a try- you will become one of their loyal followers!

Love the yearly special
My wife and I love the yearly four course Chateaubriand Bouquetiere special. Starts out with a delicious Prawns Provencale. This is followed by the Caesar Salad, which is freshly made in front of you at your table. The main course is partially complete, which is finished off at your table with a small entertaining show of fire. Finally the dinner is finish with cherries jubilee dessert, which is also made at your table for entertainment. Overall a delicious dinner served entertainingly.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been dining at this fabulous restaurant for years. The food and service has always been amazing. Great place for a special or any occasion.

A special outing
We took out Grandma for her 90th and had a wonderful evening. The room was nicely decorated, a fresh rose decorated the table which was covered with a white tablecloth. A couple of us had the Chateaubriand special so the servers provided us with entertainment throughout the dinner. The special came with a prawn appetizer but unfortunately I couldn't eat due to an allergy, however they had no issues for substituting with an other appetizer. My brother said he had never seen someone make a Caesar Salad from scratch at the table and was impressed with service and quality of the food. The Chateaubriand was cooked to perfection and the Cherries Jubilee was amazing!

Celebrating here for 30 years
We married in 1982, when the Old Surrey initially opened and we moved to Surrey and found what we call "our" place the following year, just in time for our first anniversary, which was also their first anniversary.
We've been coming back year after year and have never been disappointed, always had the best of service and the very best of the menu. I've developed a sensitivity to beef and my husband loves the Chateaubriand, they were so kind as to exchange my beef for an absolutely delicious stuffed chicken breast and I suffered no more than an overly satisfied tummy.
I love the Old Surrey and wish we could go more often! If you haven't gone yet - GO!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for groups or birthday parties. Fantastic food, so fresh they make it right in front of you. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two as well.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed everything! The only 'problem' I had was the size of the entre. I had the beef tenderloin and was unable to eat it all. Personally I would like a bit smaller portion of meat and more vegetables (which also were wonderfully seasoned and cooked). All in all though I and my friend have no complaints at all.

Surrey's Fine Dining
Excellent service. Fabulous food. I go back as often as I can afford to.

This is the place to go for a special occasion
Fantastic service and food a must for a great night out!
The ambiance is very good, the way it was back in the day!

This was our 4th time visit
This was our 4th time visit the Old Surrey Restaurant. We are always happy with the food and service. I've noticed it's always noisy and I had trouble having conversations with my friends and families. We also waited a while to get our food. Other than that, it
was a good experience over all.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food but empty
Cannot commend the food enough, and yes while it was 6:00 pm on a Tuesday night the restaurant was empty leaving the restaurant with little to no atmosphere. While I do not like noisy places this was a little too quite. The place also is looking dated. All this is such a shame as the food itself was exceptional. We shared the mushroom salad and sticking with the shared table side preparation the chateaubriand. Service was fantastic as well. The only other suggestion is to add more wines to the "by the glass". My partner does not drink and with todays drink and driving laws there is no way I am ordering a full bottle of wine with my meal. All this aside however I will be back as I have rarely had a better meal.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I wish we could dine here more often. I have been coming to the Old Surrey Restaurant for over 30 years and every meal has been memorable.

A special, local place that really caters to dining.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We can always count on a good meal at Old Surrey Restaurant. The food is great and the portions are adequate, but not so large that you can't enjoy a 3 course meal without feeling over fed.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Probably Surrey's best restaurant
My boyfriend and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was perfect: the maitre d', the service, the Basque gentleman who prepared our Caesar salad at the table, the menu selections, and of course, the food. The restaurant is charming. I have been there several times before, and intend to eat there in the future. Bon appetit!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
After living in Surrey for 4 years. My partner and I finally made it to The Old Surrey restaurant.
I have to say that we should have gone sooner.
The service was great and really prompt.
The food was great. We had the 37 per person 3 Course meal each.
The food was very tasty and the portions were generous.
The wine list has something for everyone and they had a good selection of beers as well.
The desserts were so good.
A real gem in Surrey.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time to the restaurant and chose it for the chateaubriand. We enjoyed out meal tremendously. The service was exceptional as they all worked together as a team. The dessert menu for two only had choices of desserts which all had alcohol in them it would have been nice to have choice of a dessert for two that had no alcohol as one of us drinks no alcohol at all. We will go back again without a doubt.

The best place to eat in Surrey
Old Surrey Restaurant is the best place to eat in Surrey for any special events. Food is great, service incredible, ambience is great. Could not ask for more.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never a bad meal, never a glitch in service and never stop looking forward to our next dining experience at this local oasis.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Going here for over 30 years. Continues to amaze us. Phill doing great job!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a treat
We indulge in the Old Surrey a few times a year because it is so much better than the noisy mediocrity of 'chain dining'. The service is elegant, the food is expertly prepared and presented with flair. The noise level in the restaurant is civilized and the whole dining experience (including the bill) is as it should be. The local ingredients are important to us. Even the wine list pays tribute to BC wines which, again, is how it should be. We have never been disappointed in the Old Surrey. It's where to go to impress or be impressed.

we celebrated our 50th wedding
we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with friends. Enjoyed the food and good company. The steak was excellant, the pork dish enjoyable, and the dessert wonderful and light. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. The price was right!!!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is has individual rooms with about six tables each so it is very quiet (although I did go on a Tuesday) and it feels very personable because of it. They have meals that change daily, the food is good and is very well presented. Notable flambeed dessert we tried was the crepes suzette. Fired up right next to the table for a nice show to end the evening.

Old Surrey Restaurant - 8/10
Very good fine dining restaurant in Surrey. My significant other and I ordered off of the fall table d'hote menu, but added the optional Cesar salad. Turned out to be way too much food.
Highlights, the Cesar salad was made table side, and it was fantastic, on par with Hy's table side Cesar. Had the filet tenderloin which was cooked exactly as I requested, and the staff were accommodating when I asked for a small substitution with sauces. Pumpkin pie cheesecake was ok.
I would describe the decor as more inline with a heritage style establishment. Service was great.
Will return to this restaurant in the future.

perfect for a Birthday or special occasion quality service and food very relaxed and polite .

Fall Menu a Hit!
They always have seasonal three course menus and the Fall Menu was wonderfull!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had not been to the Surrey House in years. I was happy to find that the son of the previous owner has continued on with the French cuisine and has been well trained. The deserts were also made in house and were excellent.
The serving staff was polite and timely. They were always at your service.
They have wonderful dining areas that offer great ambiance. From the time you are greeted at the door you are made to feel very welcome.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will return for another experience
Definitely one of the best fine dining restaurant in Surrey/White Rock. Glad we decided to try for the first time.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
The old surrey restaurant was our first experience with classic french cuisine years ago, and has never disappointed. Fantastic food, not stuffy at all, very romantic setting.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoy this restaurant's food, ambience and service. The specialty menus that promote local seasonal foods never disappoint,
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been here many times, each time we go the food is excellent. The service is great. For those looking for nice romantic dinner, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had not been to the restaurant
Had not been to the restaurant for 25 years. Still just as good if not better. If the restaurant was in Vancouver it would be sold out every night. JTB

Our favourite restaurant in Surrey
Chateaubriand was wonderfully prepared table side and was excellent. It was served with a nice variety of vegetables. The scallop and prawn appetizers were wonderfully flavourful. We have been here before and keep coming back for most of our special occasions. This is our favourite restaurant in Surrey
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Old Surrey not so Old
Outstanding for price,ambiance,service, and of couse the food.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
A hidden gem
Coming from Vancouver, we didn't expect much from this place in Surrey but we were dead wrong. The ambiance was great as well as the staff. We realized at the end of our experience the owner was the one serving us that night. Nice gentleman indeed. It's our first time dining here and expect us to return again and again. Thumbs up.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as usual
As usual, the food was amazing, and the service great :-) The set-price menu option was an excellent deal, with amazing food. Each of the four of us ordered different entrees, and each of us was in love with the taste and presentation of our food :-) The table side Caesar Salad preparation, the table side Crepes Suzette preparation, and the table side Special Coffee preparation were great to watch, and the results were delicious. Friendly, professional servers who never let our water glasses become empty, and checked on us the right amount of times, made the experience even better :-)
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lovely dining experience
We have been going to this restaurant about once a year for 20 years and always thoroughly enjoy it. Not sure why we don't go more often. We had the chateaubriand for 2 and the caesar salad. Both were made at the table and were delicious. The service has always been friendly and efficient.
