Marina Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Delicious. Great atmosphere. Attentive staff. Very happy with our table that faced the marina. Our food was delicious and well presented. It was my first time doing wine pairing with a meal, excellent!!! Our waiter was talkative and very attentive. Beautiful restaurant, lots of room between tables and quiet enough that I could hear my wife across the table.
Very nice location in the Oak Bay Marina. Great food combined with excellent service.
We like to take friends there for lunch and never left without satisfaction.
The food is always fresh and plentiful, the bread is fresh out of the oven.
It is a feel good restaurant and always looking forward to eat there.
Very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food at Marina. We came for the Dine Around Victoria promotion and ate at the sushi bar, and were impressed at the freshness and thoughtfulness of most of the dishes. Appetizers were beautifully prepared and simply presented (aburi bonito was phenomenal); mains were good, although they went way overboard with the spicy mayo sauce that hid the freshness of the fish... and the salmon and rock crab were both quite literally tasteless. Overall the service was excellent (great recommendation on drinks, attentive and pleasant throughout without being intrusive). Looking forward to trying the main dining room next time I go!
We were celebrating a birthday and used Open Table for a very last minute reservation at 7:15 on a Friday Night! Choosing dinner choces is always a challenge at the Marina with such a fablous selection of items on the menu- the Dine Around Selections were terrific. My daughter and I both had the Grilled Prawns and Scallops Pasta dish and highly recommend it!! What a lovely evening!
My husband & I invited his 82 year-old mom. Made reservations 6 weeks in advance requesting seating close to buffet as walking is a concern. Easy drop-off at entrance and gentle ramp through seahorse doors. Smiling Receptionist had the reservation and seated us at a perfect booth. Servers showed attentiveness and professionalism and several times used dishes were removed or fresh coffee poured without breaking our conversation. We chose from a good variety of hot, cold, vegetarian, local, light and rib-sticking dishes — all delicious. And then there was dessert but you’ll have to discover those for yourself. We came for the food, view, and restaurant’s reputation for decades of excellence and we were very happy with our experience. Most important, our Senior felt special and respected. Thank you to all the employees.
I have always loved dining at the marina so brought my sister there for her birthday lunch. The food was fantastic but not sure what happened with the service. Our meal was delivered to our table by the manager before our bread basket could be brought out by our waiter and I had to get the water jug from the waiters station to refill our water myself.
A New Year’s Eve dinner lived up to expectations with the exception of the main course. We enjoyed the courses leading to the main course but we decided that we had both selected the wrong main course . The shoulder of lamb which required a long braising without which the meat was tough, the gnocchi was too far removed from the Italian recipes and did not live up to expectations. Perhaps a better choice would have been the fish or beef . The crab prawn and scallop bake suffered with the large flakes of salt. We left gratified and satisfied even though we did not enjoy the main course. Our waitress Mara was ecellent and handled our critique with understanding and good grace. We will be back!
It was 20 minutes before we were acknowledged and offered a drink from our server. After that the service really improved. A few of the dishes we ordered sounded amazing on the menu but lacked the refinement of a well built dish. The tempura was soggy and it was obvious that the soda water they were using was not cold enough in the mix. Also the clam dish was a true disappointment. The broth was tasty enough and the clams were fresh enough but they used this cheap smoky hot dog like chorizo that was sliced in these massive brutish chunks that really over powered the dish. Our sushi roll was really fabulous. Our wine and saki selections were perfect. The steak was thin and chewy. The lamb dish was very flavorful and well presented. We have eaten here several times over the last couple years and this was the low point. We generally have more sushi. They are one of the best at it. Its hard to beat the atmosphere and view and I hope that next time and there will be a next time that things are a little more on point.
We were there right at 5:00 pm and there were just a few people in the restaurant ahead of us. We waited at least ten minutes before being brought water and asked what we would like to drink. It was at least another 20 minute before the bread basket was brought to our table and our server finally asked if we were ready to order.
I did not feel our server was friendly and or helpful. We spent over $100 and I do not feel like it was worth it.
Went to the Marina for an anniversary lunch. The service was very good in that the servers were prompt and attentive. We shared a large baby beet & stilton salad which was very well presented and more than enough to share, followed by a prawn and mushroom pasta dish and the two rivers sausage with red cabbage. Ended the meal with a shared chocolate orange tart dessert. All was very good and to our liking - would recommend any and all of it.
The food was mostly good. But the “farm table” special of saddle of lamb, stuffed with merguez sausage. It was served on a cous cous salad type of thing. It was ridiculously overpriced. There was minuscule portion of lamb piled on a large heap of cous cous salad. And that was it. For $44 ?
We had a lovely dinner there the other night. Food from start to finish was presented beautifully and was delicious. Our waitress was just a sweetheart and although we were literally the last diners to leave pre- Christmas she never acted as though we should rush and finish our dinner. A great night! Thank you, Marina Restaurant!
Busy place but able to get to our reserved table within 5-10 minutes of our reservation time. Sunday brunch was always good and have a lot of choices. The waitress is very friendly and efficient. It was way better than the waiter we had the last time there in October.
