Absolutely delicious and our server was wonderful. The king crab we were served was amazing and our tenderloin steaks cut like butter. It's pricey, so we only go about once a year for dinner, but man, oh man, do we look forward to it and we've never been disappointed.

Generally a good place but didn't enjoy the snow crab as it is very difficult to get what little meat there is out of it and it is the most expensive item.

Waiter was great!

This was a special dinner - anniversary celebration. I chose this restaurant because it has been rated the best for seafood in Victoria. I fully concur! Everything about it was first class. It is expensive, but for special occasions like ours, it fit the bill perfectly. The food was outstanding! The setting, service and ambience were all in keeping.

My 7th Anniversary Business Celebration, with three very special friends, was absolutely excellent in every way! The service from everyone, esp. a favorite server Crag, was super - intuitive, respectful, and comprehensive. ALL of our meal selections were superb -- including the free hailbut entree that we shared as an appy, fantastic cesar salads and crab cakes, and the lobster & fillet main, and bread putting deserts. And, of course, the stunning window table vista that we enjoyed. A super three hour evening, in every respect. Blue Crab is, indeed, a 5 Star International Quality Restaurant!! We highly recommend!!!

The food was excellent and the restaurant is quite lovely. Service was ok but certainly not at the level you would expect at a restaurant of that caliber. Other than the service, it was great.

The food was what we expected. The view is very nice. Our server however left much to be desired. Fine for Denny's but not acceptable in this place.

The view is beautiful, but the service was very average. We arrived 20 minutes late for our reservation due to my 80 year old parents and the reception was frosty. The food was over priced and it was super noisey.

While the service was fine you dropped the ball when little if anyone noticed this was where the guest were married and celebrated the reception. I had to call to inquire about why special instructions weren't followed.

We had booked for a special occasion and because the restaurant was quite busy ended up being there earlier than we had planned. We had quite a good view of the harbour but not one of the best views even though there were many empty tables when we arrived. The initial service was quite rushed and as the restaurant got busier it became slower. The seafood was okay but not as good as the reviews had suggested. The dessert special was very good.

On vacation with wife. Oysters were excellent. Wife had prawns and I had an outstanding paella with assorted seafood. Serving portions were quite generous. I felt badly that I had to leave food on my plate because I enjoyed every bite.

Most beautiful sunset view in Victoria! We celebrated a birthday and had a wonderful window table. Food was excellent and service was prompt and friendly. Overall, one of my favourites to host guests from out of province to show off our gorgeous city and inner harbour.

We saved Blue Crab for our last decadent dinner in Victoria. The view was beautiful, the food was spectacular and Katherine’s service was impeccable! She thoroughly knew each drink and menu item and served us with her infectious smile. I would highly recommend Blue Crab to anyone who wants to treat themselves to a wonderful dining experience!

We went for dinner for my Birthday , we were visiting Victoria from Edmonton . Food , view and ambiance were nice . I had the mixed crab plate , 68$ for the portion seemed a bit high, and the side portion , root veg and potatoes were very small . They didn’t acknowledge the Birthday at all . Considering the price , and the fact that we both had expensive meals and drinks , s a small acknowledgement would have been nice.

Our server must have been having a challenging shift. He was abrupt, curt and impatient. We almost had to beg him to take our first drink order. The first 20 minutes at our table were insulting but after we had our cocktail order in and then meal order and a bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay he settled in and became more kind. The food was great. On par with all of the high end restaurants We have enjoyed in Victoria. Yes,

For our wedding anniversary, my wife and I had a enjoyable dining experience. The service was prompt and Katherine our server was kind and made pleasant conversation. The food was thoroughly enjoyable and reasonable priced for quality was quite good. I have and will continue to recommended the restaurant to friends and will continue to count the Blue Crab as not only one of my favourite seafood restaurants, but restaurants. Good show.
