    Server was excellent and attentive. My falafel bowl was delish and my guest had the Poke bowl which was also wonderful. Beautiful presentation!!!! We both had room for dessert and both of us opted for the snickers as we weren’t willing to share:). Yum. Lovely views. This was first time visit for both of us and we both agreed to return.

    Every time we come here, we leave with smiles on our faces & a sense of a great all round experience. The welcome is always friendly - thank you hosts/esses. Luci was our waitress & she's just super lovely. Gentle energy, perfectly attentive, relaxed, professional - thank you Luci. We were visiting with a friend from out of town who's a professional chef - we wanted to show off a gem of Victoria which is why we came here - he loved it, was super impressed by the decor, friendly professionalism, wine list, quality of the cooking & really appreciated the carefully thought out presentation of every dish. It does make a difference so thank you all kitchen staff. If there's one tiny suggestion we'd like to make, it's to have a selection of lightly seasoned olives as an accompaniment to the wine & an introduction to the delicious meal that's to come. We asked Luci if we could order some flatbread or something to start & she kindly brought some warmed tasty pita with olive oil (thank you for not adding the balsamic - way too sweet & good olive oil alone is divine). We appreciated a little something to start whilst taking in the first sips of the wine. We'll be back very soon as we love it every time we come. Thank you to every one of you who makes every experience great.

    Our server (I think his name was Nevin) was absolutely outstanding. Aside from treating our table well I also saw him killing it with the other tables in the section… from making jokes to being so on top of water that it was impossible to be thirsty, he was a star!!! I come to B+B every time I’m in Vic for the gnocci bianco and as always it was absolutely stunning and delicious. 12/10 I couldn’t say enough positive things about it.

    The restaurant had a DJ on Friday evening. We had a reservation at 6.30 pm and we were a party of 4. The music got increasingly louder abd by 7 pm to 8 pm the music got so loud that everyone had to yell at each other. It was impossible to visit. We spoke to the waitress who agreed and said she would speak to the DJ. Apparently they now have a DJ during the dinner hour on the weekends. Obviously we were so frustrated with the volume in the restaurant we will avoid the weekends.

    delicious food and great service but we were disappointed with the crispy cauliflower bites. Last time we had them there was lots of it and lots of sauce and things to dip it in. But this time around there was hardly any sauce and only a few pieces of cauliflower.

    Location and ambience were excellent, and the service was great. Food was okay with the steak being very chewy and the halibut a bit overcooked. Overall it was pleasant but definitely paying more for the location than the food

    Great location on the waterfront, nice ambiance, good vibe and great food. Service was not good, our waits person was less than interested and available. When they came to the table they were only interested in pushing drinks. Despite this, we all enjoyed our food and drinks and I would recommend Boom & Batten to anyone visiting or living in Victoria with hopes that they would get a different server.

    Amazing selection, great setting, excellent service. The Gnocchi meal was delicious but portion could have been more generous. The deserts selection could be on a tray to visualize it better. We did not order desert, but on our way out saw the selection and probably would have ordered had we seen it. The marshmallows belong in the desert menu. Will definitely be back.

    Front of house is always useless we got there 10 minute early and waited 20 minutes to be seated! When we got to our table there was 4 empty table? So why did we have to wait 20 minutes to be seated and this isn’t the first time either! The service at the table was excellent as always I just wished the could improve from of house as the 2 girls running it didn’t have a clue what was going on it looked like they where playing video games on the iPads? Food was good as usual but the drinks are getting expensive! This is our go to restaurant hope things improve.

    The food and ambience were very good. The service was a little spotty. The server was excellent but we had a difficult time with our water glasses being infilled most of the night. We even moved all of the glasses to the edge of the table which eventually worked. Willing to give a second chance next time we are in town.
