Excellent food and service. Great job in accommodating a celiac. Baked halibut and prawn/scallop mains were outstanding. Large caesar salad starter was enough for two and very good. Great wine selections.
The food here was amazing and our waiter was fantastic!!!
Het uitzicht is fantastisch, maar de prijs- prestatie het lijkt niet goed op elkaar afgestemd. De bediening is echter attent en vriendelijk.
We chose the Blue Crab for our Mother's Day dinner and it worked out perfectly. The food was very tasty, the view excellent, cocktails and ambience first-rate. We've now had several excellent dinners at the Blue Crab.
This was a first class experience and made our weekend. The service was top class, and very courteous. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the wine list was superb. Our server can only be described in glowing terms as knowledgeable and helpful. He watched over us and made the evening enjoyable. The management too were friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to meet our specific needs. This restaurant is highly recommended.
Been to this restaurant a couple of times and have never been even remotely disappointed. Atmosphere is quiet we were seated quickly and the wait staff were on the ball my steak was perfectly prepared as was my wife's scallops and prawns. You need to go there.
We went with friends from Alberta, specifically for the seafood. Since we had not seen our friends for a few months, we were busy catching up and slow in ordering and slow in eating but never felt rushed. An overall great experience.
A solid place but was hoping for something a little less like a hotel restaurant.
We had eaten at the Blue Crab before and found it to be upscale and delicious. We can't say that about our latest visit. It was extremely noisy and we felt the quality of our meal didn't warrant the price charged. The service was fine...but not exceptional. Ultimately, it is unlikely we will return.
This has been our go-to place whenever we visit Victoria from Ontario, and for good reason! If the beautiful view of Victoria's Inner Harbour is not enough, the varied but not too-varied menu, coupled with attentive, but not too attentive service, exquisite presentation, lovely seafood dishes, and a reasonable wine list, which also includes good BC wines, makes this restaurant a wonderful experience all around.
Great food, great service and a beautiful location. I had the halibut which had an incredible lemon butter sauce. It was outstanding. My wife had the scallops and prawns and she thought it was extremely good. The purée was excellent.
Had a great time with my colleagues after an active day and the food was spot-on!
Our usual Anniversary and Wife's Birthday spot. As usual, the food, service and view were all spectacular. Highly recommended. Worth the drive.
We loved our meal and our server was wonderful. What a great place for an Anniversary date.
The food was just okay, especially for the pricetag. The view and service made up for it!
I took my mom out for lunch and we were given a wonderful window view. The service was great, and the meal delicious. I always love going to the Blue Crab, and this experience was comparable to the other times I've been there. Good service, good food, good atmostphere. Thanks!
I sent my Husband, Brother in law (his 50th bday), and daughter in for dinner. My brother in law just moved to Victoria and he wanted to go to a fantastic Seafood restaurant; I had eaten there a year ago and was pleased. However, it was a disappointment this time.
I phoned in advance and asked for a special dessert for my brother in law and to add it to the bill. They brought a simple piece of cake with a candle...my husband said it was fair at best and not special. The crab cakes were good as an appy. My husband asked the server for a recommendation for his dinner and followed the servers advice for a Nicoise Salad; he said he couldn't believe he paid over $30 for a "tuna salad" that had very little flavour. My daughter was underwhelmed with her dinner as well. She is a server herself and said that the server was good though.
Nice people, beautiful views, sorry that I cannot be more positive but the value was left wanting. My shrimp and scallops had three scallops and two shrimps, finely adorned, but lacking in food. My wife had the cod, her comment was "very average". My guests were too polite to say anything, but I wish had taken them elsewhere.
Everything was just ok... we were seated near the bar for lunch at a table which did have a beautiful view but with the sun streaming through we could see everything was filthy. It really needs a good scrub or at least a vacuum! Turned us off...
Mussels were very tender and so were the scallops. Our server Craig was very friendly and chatty.
We booked this reservation in advance for an Easter Sunday buffet brunch. We called to confirm the online reservation had been received and to confirm this was a buffet brunch. The staff member who took our call made sure to confirm with us that we were aware of the price being $45 per person. We confirmed, yes, we were now aware and still wanted the reservation. On Easter Sunday, April 1st, upon arriving at the restaurant, we were informed that "the kitchen has changed their mind" and they "decided not to do a buffet, but rather offered an "a-la-carte" brunch menu. We finished our Mimosas (the drinks were very good and the service was very good) and went elsewhere, but very disappointed as there was no way at the last minute we would be able to get a seating at any other Easter Sunday buffet anywhere in the city.
My wife and I went to the Blue Crab for Easter brunch. The service was prompt and friendly. The menus selection was good and the prices reasonable. The food was tasty. The location of the restaurant or the Inner Harbour in Victoria is great. The views out to the water are terrific.
The food was good, however the price for two scallops and three prawns was way out of line with regards to value. My guest's enjoyed their meal, however, the waiter kept trying to get one of them to change their mind about the steak they were ordering and how it was to be cooked. This guest is a very stubborn person and knows what he likes. Wasn't impressed with overall manner of waiter. He tended to make us rush while placing our order.
It was a night out during our stay in Victoria ... we were attracted by the special rates for dining and previous experience on prior trips. The food and service were both good and made for an enjoyable evening.
Dinner was excellent; the food, the view and the service were stellar as always. This is one of our favourite restaurants and one we highly recommend.
We stayed at the Coast Harbour hotel and we’re delighted with the Blue Crab restaurant. We ate several meals there!
Fantastic all around. We will definitely be back!
Everything from the service to the food to the view was outstanding. The food was a 10/10. Pricy but that’s expected for how tasty/portion size and the view will get you. I would recommend this to anyone. My friend I went with also enjoyed it just as much.
My wife and I were fortunate to have the opportunity to visit Victoria this past weekend. The Blue Crab was highly recommended by a number of people for its fine dining experience in a very intimate setting. The food did not disappoint and the service was excellent.
We went here for a date night and everything was great. We happened to be there for the Feast meals which were a great deal for a Ton of food!
the food was excellent in quiet surrounding with great views across the city.
Waiter spilled red wine on my daughters Hat and clandestinely grabbed some Soda to clean off - ok, but don’t charge me $6.... sheesh
One of the best views in town, and the food was great to boot! Service was very attentive without being intrusive, and overall we had a great evening!
We were told it was great, but it was far better than that. First class service,menu & the best Bloody Caesar in town!
Enjoyed our dinner in the lounge! Server was great!
Good food, not great food. Wine should have been decanted . But the setting is lovely and the service was great .
The food was fabulous, the service was great, the view is stunning. The menu was pricey even with taking advantage of the Feast pricing in relation to portion size.
Host was super...not only in the welcome but also continued to engage (with genuine interest) with diners ensuring their experience was a good one. Delicious food.
Food was delicious, view was amazing, service was very good. We will be back!!
Everything went well, good place for a special occasion.
