    Overall fairly good food. Truffle fries were the best. My lamb dish was surprising with only 2 thin lamb chops. Also had 2 lamb croquettes- but for 44$! No asparagus- but it was tasty. The others enjoyed their steaks

    Food was good. Menu very similar to sister restaurant Med Grill. Would like to see menu offer more fish choices at a more reasonable price than is currently the case as I really am not a big red meat fan, current menu is heavy on red meat.

    The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. I ordered the tomato and burrata salad and while it is excellent, the portion is definitely adjusted likely due to rising food costs. The price has also increased a little. You used to get a full ball of burrata and now it’s a half ball. It’s still plenty of food but I noticed the difference.

    Boom and Batten is one of our favourites. Great location, great atmosphere. I had scallops with pea risotto. Came with 3 scallops. They were perfectly cooked and tasty, but could have done with one more for an entree. The game hen was excellent and came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. We like their cocktails and wine selection. Service as always is right on, with nice pace for the dishes coming out

    We hate them telling us we have 90 minutes before we even sit down. We were done in 90 minutes & left but only 1/2 the tables were full when we left so why put a time limit on? We spend quite a bit of money here but are starting to look at other places due to ALWAYS being told that when we enter. It just changes the feel. Service was excellent. Usually the food is great but yesterday the burger & pizza were just average. Such a nice setting.

    Steak was horrible and I doubt it was really a ribeye. Wife and I have been grilling ribeye steaks for almost 40 years and I know what quality meats can be, but these 10oz ribeye's were awful and not worth $10 much more $50. We eat out a lot and not afraid to pay top dollar, but did not want to get into it with waitress as we were not dressed the part (had been out for a long walk while sight seeing), and thought we might be viewed as trying to get a free steak. Got a tip from an Irish pub this was the best place in Victoria. My steak was riddled with tendons and skinny flat, I chewed my jaw tired. Wife's was thicker but also really tough. There was no seasoning and we just expected much more. Also disappointed with dry piece of carrot cake. Maybe seafood would have been better choice but I would not recommend your steak to anyone. Pretty setting and staff were nice.

    This is the only restaurant where, on being greeted at the front desk, we were told that we had to compete our dinner in less than 2 hours as the table was booked after that. This was despite booking a month ago! Not a good start. We were then advised that they were out of 6 oz steaks, but had 8 oz ones!!!!? Wines were expensive but a fair selection. I Their scalops(3small ones placed on top) and sweet pea risotto was like a rice pudding with regular peas, and it was a wrong choice. My wife’s Cornish hen was satisfactory and quite pleasant. Our server and the supervisor were very good. From past experience, I know that they can do very good food, but last night was not one of those good experiences. I am sure the very unprofessional start didn’t help. If the front desk’s professionalism was better I would recommend them and give them another chance.

    Boom + BattenResponded 6 days agoHello John, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

    We absolutely loved our experience. Our one tiny complaint is that every time we've been to Boom & Batten the hostess has reminded us that we only have a certain amount of time before the next party will need our table. This makes me anxious, even if I know we'll be finished in plenty of time. I'm betting that some people who would have liked to have dessert or a liqueur just leave because they feel pressured. I would recommend that management reconsider the practice of "timing" tables. Otherwise, it was wonderful! Thank you.

    The overall experience was enjoyable and just fine! We were a group of 4 for lunch, and one person ordered a eggs/meat breakfast-type item. After the food arrived, it didn't take long until we noticed that there was no salt and pepper at the table, and it took more than a few minutes to get the attention of someone to provide any. Perhaps restaurants don't have salt and pepper on tables as standard practice anymore, however the guest who ordered the breakfast item felt that the staff should have asked whether or not any was desired at the time the entrees were brought to the table. Another thing that happens frequently in restaurants is that when the guests request the bill, oftentimes the bill is brought to the table and then there is a big delay in bringing the payment device to the table. Chances are that when guests request the bill, they are ready to head out, so having once again to get the attention of the wait staff is a bit annoying. These points can be addressed through training --> When first greeting the customers and bringing water to the table, for example, ask them if they would like salt and pepper (or other other needs). When the customer asks for the bill, ask them if they would like to also have the payment device brought to the table. Both minor points, but slight improvements in these two areas would have made a better impression and would have better matched the expectations for this type of dining establishment. :-)
