Marina Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Potential beautiful location overlooking the marina. However, despite being a relatively quiet Sunday evening with a number of ‘view’ tables available, we were seated at a table with partial view looking out over stairwell.
Good varied menu with local ingredients. Server was very pleasant and knowledgeable about menu. Price on high end but appropriate.
We have been to the Marina Restaurant dozens of times, and usually everything is at least good if not great. This recent time, however, was a serious exception. The service was very slow, starting with the cocktails, followed by items from our order either not arriving at all (wine pairing, forgotten) or arriving incorrectly (ling cod, instead of ribeye), or lukewarm upon delivery. Appropriate cutlery was not provided (soup served, no spoons, had to be requested, and other). The flavour spectrum of the food was excellent, however. We did mention all of this to the manager when we were asked at the end of our dinner how things were going, as I believe it is far more helpful to be honest with management about shortcomings than to just smile and pretend everything is okay. After all, we have been going to the Marina for years as a favourite neighbourhood spot, and we want to ensure that things will get back up to the fine standards we are used to. I wouldn't even bother reviewing this experience, except that sometimes it can be useful to help escalate change. The manager did provide two complimentary desserts and a round of drinks as compensation, which was appreciated, and we will go back again, hoping things will have improved. This specific experience is what quantified my somewhat low rating, and I hope that next time I will have reason to give it a full five stars on all accounts!
Hard to express how great Marina Restaurant is. For some, on the pricey side, but for a special person's birthday, when you want to be assured of a great experience, I can't imagine a better place. We're still talking about it, both local people and family from San Diego. Service attentive and friendly, knowledgeable, discreet. Lots of local fare, esp delicious veg from Saanich Organics; ocean-wise fish and seafood. Delicious and unique desserts. Lovely ambiance; comfortable and serene. Just go.
The Marina has been on our “favourites” list for years. This visit did not disappoint. Guests visiting from Alberta loved the water views from the window seat (which had been requested at the time of reservation). The service was efficient and the food delicious.
we went first time to celebrate my Mom birthday /70. they came from Colombia, so it was a very special occasion, but unfortunately my husband asked for a beef 8 oz. well done but still red meat, and the flavour it was not that great, too much cumin and peppers that overpowered the dish, as me i asked for the chicken with peach sauce and literally the chicken was cold, the leg, the other piece it was not too bad but with skin, which i found kind of disgusting, i did not want to ruin my moms celebration we loved the view but the food it was not so great as the price and the space would deserve. my father kind of enjoyed as far as i know the fish the kids pasta was nice. and i think the dishes lack on fresh vegetables, or for me i could not find a decent salad offered on the menu. thanks for listening, but it was not a great first time. not going back for a while. :(
We booked online the night before and were surprised to get a table for 9 am on Sunday for brunch. The service was polite and tended towards classy. There was enough variety of dishes to make it exciting for all ages. Arrive early to get a table with a view of the marina and the ocean.
The smoked salmon salad was the biggest hit. We had the pesto prawns, but didn't realize it was a pasta dish. We wouldn't has ordered it if we had. The prawns were delicious, just not a fan of tomato sauce pasta. We had a great time however and our server was delightful. We'll be coming again. We have also gone to the sushi bar in the past and enjoy it immensely.
Surprised tobe able to book a last minute late dinner hour reservation for a party of six.
Excellent in every facet. Did not ever feel rushed although there weren't many patrons left.
The menu selections were varied and deleicious and well presented. First return visit for a couple of years. Won't wait so long to return.
We booked this for our anniversary dinner . It's got a great view of the ocean from every table. The menu has a good selection of different types of food. We came for the seafood and we weren't disappointed . My wife had the special of the day, grilled halibut. She almost licked the plate clean. Lol. I had the tuna off the menu, it was very tasty. Victoria is one of our must visit locations yearly. This restaurant will be on the list as well.
