If you're looking for a delicious meal and surprising cocktails, this is a great farm-to-fork place. Don't be fooled by the menu notes that they recommend a dish be shared with the group -- the portions are on the smallish side -- unless what they mean is that the dishes are so tasty it would be cruel not to let your friends have a bite.

Service was a little slow, but other than that (and the fact that a neighboring table spilled a bottle of wine down our pants), would still highly recommend any person visiting Victoria to give this place a try. The Humboldt squid -- how did they get it that tender? The charcuterie for 2 is a great appetizer for 4. And the cappelletti. Mm... mm... mm!

Our second time here, I think we’ll eat here whenever we’re back in Victoria. The Humboldt squid was again delicious and we tried the Toast—crab and hand-peeled shrimp on, yes, toast; another super hit. Lamb ragu was also excellent though I was eating it for the flavour rather than because I was still hungry.

Staff are excellent m; always there but not annoyingly so, and very knowledgeable. Food is local and sustainable. And we got a map showing where much of it comes from on the Island.

Five stars.

This restaurant has a relaxed yet eloquent feel, the food is top shelf and artfully plated. The chefs tasting menu was superb. Their Tiramisu is the absolute best. This very quickly became our favorite restaurant for dinner while living in Victoria .

Yikes. The hostess was rude and abrasive. The bar lady was awesome. Our server was great. The potions were tiny. We needed to go elsewhere for more food. And the loo was overflowing. When we told them they did nothing.

I ordered the salmon and explained to the server that I wanted it cooked more than chefs like to cook salmon. I made it clear it wanted it well done as I don’t like my fish “undercooked.” Our server completely dismissed me and said the chef cooks everything perfect and I’ll get it the way the chef cooks it and it’ll be perfect. As I feared it wasn’t “perfect” it was “underdone!” I’m sorry I can’t eat salmon that is not cooked through, I don’t like the texture. I know that the chefs don’t want to over cook the fish but I made it clear that’s exactly what i wanted. Of course I had to send it back so when the manager came over to see how our things were I asked her politely to send it back she did but then our food was out at different times and the snotty attitude of the server after I sent the salmon back was palpable.

The rest of the food was amazing and I’m sure the salmon is amazing too.

Note there are three restaurant’s 10 acres commons, 10 acres kitchen and 10 acres bistro. When looking up menus the bistro is the one that is shown.

Very fresh and varied menu. We tried squid, salmon and clams - all were very good. Service efficient and friendly. I would absolutely go back.
The only thing I would look at is the wine. Quite expensive and quality was not what I hoped for. I did have a very good cocktail instead!

My husband and I were staying at the Empree Hotel, across the street, so this was an exciting find for quiet ambiance (off season Oct. 31) , to have a bottle of wine and a lovely assortment of fresh oysters and pasta.

The food was excellent West Coast style. I deducted one star because they didn’t serve bread, which would have been good with some of the dishes. The service was friendly and attentive but not overwhelming. The ambiance was pretty good but lost one star due to cross-noise on two music streams - one might have been from the Commons. It is a bit overpriced, but that was expected m, due to its appeal to tourists.

This is absolutely the best dining experience my wife and I have had in Victoria. We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. We expected something casual with high quality food but were blown away by the beautiful decor and spectacular service. The staff were attentive and outgoing. The food was amazing. The whole experience started date night in the best way possible. Very highly recommended.

No matter how "farm-fresh" and "food-to-table" a restaurant may be, it's still necessary to 1) Update the menu with the ACTUAL entree' and accompaniments that guests will receive, and 2) Require each server to know EXACTLY what is in each dish, including desserts! Stay away from this tourist trap.

I don’t particularly enjoy watching mice run around while I’m eating. If it weren’t for this problem I would have enjoyed my experience way more. The bus boy was great, however the servers relied on him way too much, so much so that he was at the table more than they were.

10 Acres Kitchen is one of our favourite restaurants. The staff are helpful and friendly. Seating is booths that provide good separation from other guests, so noise is minimal.
