Excellent place to eat. We went this time for our anniversary and it didn't fail to meet our expectations. We both had the Farm to Table 3 course dinner and loved the innovative offerings. I had the Buttermilk Savoy Cabbage to start, the wonderful Smoked Short Ribs (so tender) & the Poached Pear for dessert. Our server Julie, was helpful and attentive. Setting wonderful as always. So glad this wonderful restaurant is in our neighbourhood

I would strongly recommend Fireside Grill for happy hour. It was fabulous!
Great food & drinks for the price. You also felt very safe from others dining around you with the dividers they have set up between tables.

This is one of the best resturants in Victoria. Great location. Atmosphere is fantastic with several fireplaces to sit next to. They recently added dividers between the tables to improve health and it keeps any noise in the restaurant to a minimum. The food is fantastic and the service staff awesome. I try something different from the menu every time we dine here. All the menu items are spectacular.

I had lunch with two friends. The server was really nice and his service was excellent. The food was rated excellent by my two friends. I had the tacos and I would rate them as very good. Could have used a bit more spice. The sidesalad was excellent.
Overall, everything was great.

As usual, we were very satisfied with our experience. We were greeted and welcomed to the restaurant, seated promptly and our waitress arrived soon after to take our beverage order. She was friendly, pleasant and professional. Our meals arrived in an appropriate amount of time, and we both enjoyed what we had ordered. We were not rushed, and had several other staff members stop at our table to refill water and coffee, ensure everything was as we wished. We consider Fireside to be our neighbourhood gem!
