The Old Surrey Restaurant is Surrey’s best well- kept secret. Built in 1918, it was the residence of Lou Jack and his household until it was converted into a restaurant in 1974.

The interior has a crisp, clean aesthetic that is enhanced by hardwood floors and the enlarged photos of historic Surrey that adorn the walls. There are five distinct dining areas on the top floor (including a cozy library) and a banquet facility downstairs. The cuisine is French with a splash of West Coast flare. A treat for new and seasoned guests alike are the signature dishes that are prepared and flambeed tableside.

The restaurant is family owned and operated since 1975. Since 1984 the restaurant has entered into a partnership with the family farm in Ryder Lake overlooking Chilliwack from the nearby mountains. The Old Surrey is well known for its free-range lamb and veal allowing customers to enjoy fresh organic ingredients.

For my first time there , it was amazing. The service was outstanding. Everyone was attentive but not overbearing. The food was prepared perfectly and was delicious. We order the spring set menu which made it easier to decide and was a great price for such a fine dining experience.

The food was very good. We had the Spring special. My appie was the steamed mussels. My partner had the duck confit risotto. She had the filet and crab while I had the lamb combo as mains. Both were really good. The caesar salad and crepes suzette were both made table side and both were great. Portions were good and in fact for us almost too much food.

The service seemed confused. We were seated at our table and no came to speak with us for about 5 minutes. No drink request no menus, nothing. I finally asked a waiter for menus. We were not alone. I saw someone else have to the same thing. We also waited nearly 30 minutes between our salad being finished and main course. Other tables around us who were served behind us got their mains before we did. Even our waiter noticed the delay and told us our food would be right out. It wasn't for another 10 minutes.

It seems they could use some organization and structure to how their staff work together. The food was great and the table side preparation was fun, something you don't see very often anymore.

We were celebrating a milestone in a business partnership and had an extraordinary experience of fine dining and gracious service. Arrangements were easy to make and the menu offered lots of tempting choices that lived up to the menu descriptions in presentation and taste. Props to the chef. I had forgotten what a neighbourhood gem this place is; I will be back - soon.

I have been wanting to try this restaurant out for a long time now as I’ve driven past it many times. It’s definitely a dining experience as quite a few items were prepared table side.

The food was very good but my crepe Suzette was outstanding. The decor was charming and ambiance was conducive to a good night out. I would’ve given this place a 5 star if it wasn’t for the service. It was confusing.

We were shown to the table by the owner, who seemed friendly but stiff, our server took our drink and food order without a crack of a smile. Our food was taken to our table by a couple of kids, so young one wasn’t able to serve us our wine. . He had to call our server to do it. This was the last time she came to our table. We had to flag down another server for the dessert menu and he had to call one of the kids to give it to us and the other kid took our orderThe crepes were prepared, without a smile, by the owner, who also didn’t say anything the whole time. The entire night’s service was disjointed and disappointing which was a shame because I liked everything else.

Easter dinner, wanted to give my mom and our kids a chance to be exposed to the Old Surrey experience. My wife and I love the table service, so we had to have the cesar salad, nitro ice cream, and for a grand finale a couple after dinner coffees. Everyone loved the display. They didn’t have crab cakes and substituted with soft shelled crab. Of the four of us who ordered at least everyone tried something new, but in the end I ate a lot of soft shelled crabs. Everything else was perfect. When you go because trust me you must. I can only hope that you have the pleasure of being at least partly served by Spiro. He is a gentleman that truly adds to the experience. Everything I have tried on the main menu is top notch. Also we usually go for the 4 course meal it just depends on what’s offered.

We have been coming to Old Surrey Restaurant for over 12 years. We have been celebrating every wedding anniversary here since we got married. We also come for date nights too. The food is amazing, the service is wonderful, the table side preparation is so special. There are not many restaurants left that do this. We love dining in the library. Very romantic.

The complimentary flat bread even though small pieces were very tasty.

We've been customers of Old Surrey Restaurant for more than a decade. Birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions, the service is second to none and the food and preparations at your table are fantastic.
So when we won a $200 gift certificate just for liking Old Surrey on Facebook we just couldn't believe our luck.
Thanks to everyone at the restaurant for making it another memorable night.

This was our very first visit , despite living in Surrey for many years. Overall, a really wonderful dinner with good service, although no one offered to refill my empty cocktail or asked if I might like a glass of wine once the meal arrived. Classic dishes, nicely presented and decent portions. Enjoyed everything we ordered, including dessert. The room we were in was small and with four table it seems a bit tight, but manageable. Parking was very limited and could be quite challenging, depending on the time of day. Would definitely return.

An excellent restaurant with a great menu. My friends were impressed with the food, service, attention and ambience. There was no rush to push you out the door. We spent a leisurely time over dinner and were able to have excellent entertainment as the servers prepared some of the dishes at our table. All 4 of us had the special which was excellent. Great food a a reasonable cost.

I love a restaurant that never disappoints and this is it. If you like to linger over amazing food, candlelight, catering servers and fine wine - it doesn’t get much better.
Off the beaten track and tucked away is this culinary delight. Be sure to make reservations.
