1909 Kitchen – Tofino Resort + Marina
Try the tuna. Try the prawns. Try the yam fries. Try the Brussels sprouts. Another family member loved the pepperoni pizza — not overladen with stuff and with a great crust. Great meal with social distancing carefully ensured.
We were in Tofino for four days, we ate at 1909 Kitchen twice. I could eat the prawn tacos every day. Our server Cheyanne was lovely, we had such a great time, thank you.
The Kale Caesar salad ,Brussel sprouts and the pasta were excellent. There was no host at the door and it took some time for someone to notice us and be seated.
We had wonderful service. The Eggs Benedict was perfect. A wonderful experience!
Excellent food and drinks, some VERY special items on the menu - the black cod is heavenly, the tofu bites divine....I would have liked more greens on the plate than carrot and something pickle-y perhaps....Service was exceptional!! A lovely birthday dinner. We feel very lucky to have dined there. All precautions were in place so even more special to have more space & privacy :)
Food was really great. Servers were really friendly and nice to talk to. More fish and vegetarian option would be nice to have.
Food was amazing. The prawn tacos, cod and crab was the perfect trio. Our server was top notch and very accommodating. Will be back!
Amazing service from Harrison! Well done and the chicken was delicious.
Great service and the chicken entree was truly amazing! Definitely recommend for dinner.
Our first time at 1909, amazing views, amazing service, amazing amazing food!!!!
A little loud in Covid times. So concerning re level of noise and laughter. Good spacing. Great food. Shrimp tacos were fabulous. Bar / pub is scary re number of people liud singing etc. Otherwise good.
The pizza and the yams were top notch and our server was super pleasant! Recommend this spot
Was easy to book on the open table. Everything was fantastic - Harrison, our server was excellent - knowledgeable on drinks/food/ what pairs well with both. Really just great all around. Food was superb and ambiance was great - especially the wood burning stove!
Delicious food and lots of space. Strawberry crumble was the best!
Not the best vegetarian options but the pizza is good
WOW! My fiancé and I went to kitchen 1909 saturday night and we were blown away!! We ordered the raw albacore tuna, the sweet potatoes with miso salmon and the cod. We came here for the seafood and we were not disappointed. Mike was our server and rarely you come across someone so skilled, professional, kind and fun! It was my fiancé’s bday and we couldn’t have asked for a better night - and the skillet cookie as dessert ... to die for!
We came back from Brunch on Monday, also delicious!!
The ambiance, food and decor were outstanding. The meatballs were devine, as were the pizzas. Thank you for everything, we will most certainly be back again.
It was good food and service but a little high in price. They did a good job following covid rules though.
Amazing restaurant! Loved the meatballs, tacos, and beet salad!
Things didn't get off to a good start when we had to wait in line, outside in the cold, for 15 minutes before we could even speak to someone. And we had a reservation!! That was exacerbated by the unwarranted "attitude" displayed by the host.
Things improved once we were seated. Our servers were helpful and attentive. And the food, especially the tacos, was very, very good!!!
I didn't care for the ambience and it was way too loud to have an enjoyable evening. Which is too bad because it means I probably won't go back, regardless of how good the food is.
One last point - management should let their staff know that it is never appropriate to say that "we are busier than we expected", or "we were slammed this evening" as an excuse for poor service. All that does is demonstrate that good service is not a priority.
This is our “must book Dinner” place for every visit to Tofino over the past 3 years.
It was a nice dinner. Nice ambience. View during the day would have been amazing.
Really enjoyed watching the open kitchen Great food
One of the better places to eat in Tofino. It's a must go to
Service was great! Food was tasty and came quickly.
Excellent service and delicious food! The ambiance was lovely too.
Good COVID-19 prevention measures in place.
It was a great experience all around. Our server was on point, friendly & knowledgeable and the food was delicious.
We had dinner at 1909 mid October, The food and drinks were fantastic but I have to say the service was not anything more than fair. We felt no urgency or real hospitality with the server she just didn't seem like she wanted to be there, it definitely didn't totally ruin the time just was not what I expected for this type of restaurant.
Very casual dining. Pretty noisy and food was average. Great for young couples and families.
We loved everything. Harrison was a great server. We had a table for two by the window overlooking the dock. A bald eagle has a nest across the way that we watched. Oysters and meatballs to start were perfect. The tenderloin and cod were amazing and though not usually a tofu lover that was great too! We wish we could have tried the entire menu. Will be back again.
Our server Michael was fabulous
Food was amazing
Amazing food for breakfast and dinner. Staff is super friendly and efficient. Special thanks to Mina and Christine.
Amazing good. Best meal
We had in Tofino! Will go again.
We'd visited The Hatch on the first night of our four in Tofino and decided to go to 1909 on our last night (they share the same building and kitchen) we're very happy we did. The food was delicious, service was good and the background music was loud enough to hear but not intrusive. Although a bit pricey it was was well worth it, we'd definitely recommend it.
Went here for my boyfriends 25th birthday and had one of the best meals ever! Our server was super accommodating and made the night special.
We booked with open table a couple of weeks out. Our earliest time to dine was 8:30 so I suggest you book early.
Our server Danika was very polite and professional.
We enjoyed our choices from the menu and would definitely return to this establishment.
Food was amazing. Love the wings and Thai salad. And their seafood platter is good though expensive.
Most everyone in our party of six really enjoyed their food. I had the Margherita pizza. Terrible crust: super tough, no flavor, burnt bits clinging to the bottom. They also served me martinis in dinky little champagne glasses when they actually had proper martini glasses (when requested).
The steak and cod were delicious and the mini fish tacos were superb and filling enough for a meal. Service was excellent and Covid protocols very well executed.
In addition, the adjacent pub was great for all the same reasons. Just don’t order pizza.
Our food was excellent, exceeded our expectations.
We had one of the best meals we've ever had in our lives at 1909 Kitchen. My husband's perfectly cooked filet mignon came with fresh local chanterelle mushrooms picked that morning. That kind of attention to detail means a very talented chef. My miso glazed black cod tasted exquisite.
The ambiance is a problem due to Covid restrictions I suspect. Unfortunately, the background music sounded like harsh screaming noise so disturbing if you're out for an evening of relaxed fine dining.
