    bard and banker is not set up to handle large parties, but for some reason, they took my reservation for 16 people! they never told me we would be split up at different tables, and those people would be squished in. the food is mediocre at best. my salad was so heavily dressed, i asked for a different salad. it came after our bill for 16 was paid! aanndd never removed from the bill. i would not recommend bard and banker

    Our server TIA 435 was probably the best server I have had at Bard & Banker. She was excellent and the space they gave us for our celebration was perfect!

    Had to spend Valentine's Day away from home with colleagues. Couldn't find a restaurant and this one RQA available. We were greeted with a friendly smile, service was great and the food was really good. Fresh local oysters being shucked daily and all ingredients were very fresh. Would definitely go back.

    We had a gift card that had apparently expired a few years prior but the waitress looked into it and the establishment honored it...which was really appreciated. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    The food was good and the local beers excellent. The restaurant was comfortable and roomy, with friendly service. This would represent a good, initial dining experience for those visiting Victoria for the first time.

    I really like the interior of this place. Food was good, the oysters were excellent! And the service was good as well. The only negative I have is that temperature inside felt like about a thousand degrees! I only had a sweater on with no layers so I was sweating bullets the entire time. I don't know if they crank the heat in the winter or what the deal was. I would def recommend this place, just wear layers easy to peel off!
