of seafood. The oysters were also really good and fresh. Linguine with mussels was sooo good. The restaurant was recommend to us as the best seafood restaurant in Victoria. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Wonderful meal, great service
Had a nice spot near the back, great ambiance and music playing in the background while not overpowering. Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of the oysters to no fault of the restaurant, Ferris’s made for a great date night and a very attentive server!
Amazing service and food. Recommend this place highly.
We had a wonderful dinner at Ferris Upstairs. The menu is varied and excellent. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed arancini, and mains of halibut and salmon. Everything was perfectly seasoned and the side vegetables were al dente and delicious. Our shared dessert of chocolate pot de creme with churros was very tasty. Ferris Upstairs is special! We loved the old town architecture, wooden floors, and local art. It is so authentic in all the right ways! Highly recommend.
Service was excellent. Food even better!! Oysters were fresh, everyone at our table enjoyed their meal.
I was so impressed with the service and food. I would highly recommend going to this place
We had an excellent dinner and I would go back without hesitation. The chicken liver pate was soooo good! I’d maybe pass on the chorizo pastry snacks. Excellent service and the ambience was spot on. Busy but not too busy.
Excellent food and service as always!!
Elizabeth was amazing! The food was so fresh and so delicious and the overall experience was great. Highly recommend. I will be coming back for more oysters!
Absolutely fantastic food
And we are foodies!
The oysters were so fresh and delicious! Their smaller plates were so tasty too - we shared the cauliflower and the tuna crudo. We also had the salmon special with crab risotto and it was amazing.
Staff were wonderful, food was amazing. Oysters were disappointing
Wonderful atmosphere, great service and and exceptionally delicious food!
Food was incredible!
This is my idea of perfection - low key vibe, great ambience, superb food, outstanding service, and David is wonderfully knowledgeable about wine. A. Interesting wine list, full of treasures!
Delicious bouillabaisse. Wonderful wine. Scrumptious dessert. Charming service.
The Sable Fish dinner was great would have it again and again
Delicious seafood (best bouillabaisse I had outside of France), very good service, and good overall ambiance. I highly recommend it! Extra likes for having bilingual waiters in their staff, which is great when you’re a francophone visiting British Columbia.
Service and food are excellent. Good range of prices from tapas style bites to small plates to main courses. Attentive but not intrusive server. Found the music a bit loud for conversation ease but that seems standard in almost all establishments now.
This is one of our favourite restaurants in Victoria- never disappoints! Champagne and oysters are a must!
A long awaited few days in Victoria and a return visit to Ferris Upstairs which did not disappoint food and service were exceptional, this is quite a small dining room but seating areas all have screens and lots of fresh air from the open windows which was great, also it was pretty quiet this evening
So glad you’re back
Likely the best restaurant in Victoria
It was so nice to eat at one of our favourite restaurants after the lifting of the Provincial Emergency Health Order. The food, the service, the ambience were all top notch!
Benjamin gave us fantastic service
Fabulous meal and the service was great! Definitely will be going back.
Easy access, they have an elevator for elderly couple like us, simple fine dining
Consistently delicious...one of my favorite spots in Vic!
Lived in the city for many years and first time trying Ferris'. Was not disappointed! Food and service were exceptional. We will come back.
As always, the food and service was outstanding. Our wine recommendation from Jasmine was perfect with the fresh oysters and the other dishes we chose.
Ferris upstairs is a favorite place for us to come and be spoiled.
Happy hour oysters were amazing! Clam fettuccine was tasty but a bit heavy. Would be better with Best service I've had in a long time.
Amazing food and service!!! Best seafood in town!!!
Ferris' is a classic Victoria destination and thankfully hasn't lost a step during the pandemic. Appropriate pandemic precautions in place including distancing, sanitizer, masks, and shields between tables.
We had the happy hour oysters and despite being inexpensive they were very fresh and high-quality. Fish and seafood in the mains was also fresh and top quality.
The menu is small but well executed and this remains a go-to spot for seafood lovers in Victoria. The only criticism is that despite being called an "Oyster Bar" they only have one variety available -- but I think this is a good compromise to keep things fresh if volume has gone down.
Food was delicious - Arancinis on the happy hour menu and the humboldt squid are must haves. Service was excellent as always!!
We really enjoy the ambiance of the place. Coming from Barcelona, the Ferris Upstairs provides me with an outstanding piece of home away from home. The food has been chosen escaping the most famous classics and they nailed it! The cooks: out of this world. The floor staff: a dream ( thank you very much Elisabeth and Benjamin).
This is definitely one of our favourite places.
You guys have developed a beautiful menu that escapes boring. Amazing execution.
Went for oysters and wine. Was wonderful. Super food. Great service. Highly recommend
Ferris' has maintained their quality over the 23 years we have been going there.
Always terrific, and didn't disappoint this time. My brother just moved here from Australia and we shared a dozen oysters. He couldn't believe how fresh they tasted! And we love the "O-Canada Portage" series by artist Timothy Hoey on the walls: What's not to love about paintings framed with hockey sticks? Thanks for another memorable evening!
My son and I enjoyed a lovely dinner out at Ferris’s Upstairs. The service was good, well timed and the food was delicious. We had a fun time out.
