Brunch: Wednesday – Saturday 10:00am – 2:00pm
The food was fabulous, unfortunately the service was not. There were only two other tables in the restaurant and yet we waited to place our appetizer order, we actually had to get our servers attention. This could have been such a better experience if more attentive service was given. The food was outstanding but the service really left us feeling cold.
The tasting menu was amazing, and the dishes the chef created for my dietary restrictions blew me away. Each wine pairing was carefully thought out, and we had a delicious meal and wonderful time!
The meal was awesome. The flavours and combinations, taste and texture took the meal to the next level. Highly recommend and definitely come again.
Robert, the chef, has reached new highs . we have been before, and were at saveur on opening night. the creativity, taste, style have all moved on...and the addition of some BC wines is not only appropriate but very good choices, although there is room for more...we were there recently with friends who have not been before and they were very impressed and pleased to find saveur...specifics: the sunchoke soup was OUTSTANDING, taste and presentation...and the beef carapaccio, which i have usually ignored at other places, because it is usually flat BUT not here, sliced appropriately thin, a beautiful presentation with greens...and of course the gnocchi...i only had 3 appetizers and delighted i did, they were spectacular
Great presentation with adequate portion sizes. The fillet was exceptional
We travelled to Victoria specifically to celebrate a birthday at Saveur. The chef's tasting menu was outstanding. The innovative and delicious food was served by professional and friendly staff. This was our fifth visit to Saveur (3 dinners, 2 brunches) and we have been consistently pleased with the outstanding food and service. Thanks again to the staff for a memorable meal!
Absolutely fantastic. Each dish paired with excellent wine was unique and offered a cohesive dining experience. The Chef had most certainly raised the culinary bar to a whole new level. Will continue to return every time I'm in Victoria.
All round excellent food and service.
Well informed waitress
Wonderful food, good location and convenient for theatre going
The food is a little bit late. But the other things are perfect
Saveur has outstanding food and lovely presentation. The food is delicious and creatively plated with so much flavour and locally and mindfully sourced ingredients.
Lovely atmosphere, attentive wait staff, and excellent fare.
Saturday Brunch is a must and the drive is well worth it and parking is pretty good in downtown.
Beautiful food, carefully and skillfully prepared and artfully presented.
Great service! Delicious tasting menu with terrific wine pairing.
This was a perfect place to celebrate a special event. The food and wine were exceptional and the wait staff was attentive and sincere.
The food was beautifully prepared and served and the variety of dishes in the Tasting Menu was good. But the quantity was so small that one wondered afterwards if one had had a meal. It was an interesting culinary experience that we would recommend to some friends but we would also flag the smallness of the portions and the cost.
Had dinner at Saveur after being there several times.
Service was quite good, attentive.
The pork belly was very good, lovely presentation and the right amount of flavours on the plate. The gnocchi was overpowered by the multiple flavours on the plate - beets, nuts, cheese.....
The chicken and fish were both good but both were subject to the same issue of flavours on the plate. Perhaps slightly less so with the chicken.
The wine choice is good and very well priced by the glass.
We would say the plates just need simplification of flavours so the food really shines without battling against one another.
This is a good restuarant - we'd return.
We really enjoyed this restaurant, planning on going back soon. Excellent food and great service.
We chose the tasting menu and the restaurant accomodated our advance request for a vegetarian/pescatarian menu. The food came out in perfect little portions - five in all. Our favourite was the corn cream soup but all were excellent. I was especially impressed with the wine pairings - all of the wine was so good and perfectly matched to the courses.
Loved the cod, mushrooms, kale dish and the beet terrine
Fabulous restaurant!! The entire evening is an event.
Went for brunch, had the duck confit benny- amazing!!!! The best ever!!!
Super fun and tasty food to celebrate girl time for my birthday, thank you!
The chef’s Tasting Menu was exquisite! We really enjoyed every bite - so many creative and unexpected tastes. We also had the paired wines with each course - perfect complements. We were a little surprised at the cost. When we saw the tasting menu price, we had Soum that included the wind. It ended up being over $360 for two people to help each have the tasting menu and the accompanying wine pairs. Just be prepared for sticker shock. The staff were delightful and did a very top class job taking care of us.
Lovely atmosphere and great service. I'd personally prefer a few plainer choices that didn't include eggs or pork.
Brunch was very good, the banana bread French toast was delicious!
Service was remarkable, and the restaurant was fairly busy.
The food was okay but not great... we had the duck benny and french toast. Benny meal was a bit small, and french toast was a bit too rich/heavy/sweet. Overall a bit disappointing.
Good service and delicious food. Small enough for easy conversation.
Outstanding food. The wine list was a bit limited and could have more selections comensorate with the quality of the food. Overall an exceptionally good meal.
Excellent brunch and lunch items. Beautifully presented, delicious cuisine
Food, cocktails, and service were all outstanding. Good lighting and noise level for a date. Though overall it’s not that detrimental to the ambiance, the decor could, to borrow words from another reviewer, use a more refined eye. The Saveur logo (which features prominently in several spots around the restaurant) is particularly crappy. Anyway, that’s surface stuff. Great experience and we’ll certainly be back.
We have been to many Michelin-started restaurants, especially in France and the UK, but Rob’s tasting menu is still the best and our favorite.
We loved our experience! My partner and I both did the tasting menu and it was amazing from start to finish. We tried many cocktails but my partners favorite was the “smoke and coke.” Every course was so creative, we will be returning ASAP.
The food selection and presentation was excellent. We had the wine pairing and these were for the most part well chosen. We enjoyed the knowledge of the servers and definitely plan to go back.
Everything was perfect! Thank you! We had a great birthday celebration for my husband!
During a short visit to Victoria, we visited Saveur for brunch. We had hueveros rancheros and the soft boiled eggs on a muffin, and, of course, mimosas! Everything was outstanding and our waiter could not have been more helpful, friendly, and attentive. We would definitely return for more explorations of the menu!
I chose Saveur as my birthday celebration night and was thrilled with every bit, from starters through dessert. The complexity of the dishes were masterfully presented in a fashion that complimented rather than competed. I can’t wait to return again and will recommend to friends!
We came here while on our honeymoon and had the Chefs tasting menu- the food and wine pairing was amazing and we highly recommend! A wonderful experience!
We were in Victoria as tourists and happened upon this place because of a brunch Groupon. For dinner, I strongly recommend the five course tasting menu. The flavors and plating are exquisite,and the service friendly and attentive, without being too fussy or pushy.
Why this restaurant does not have a line out the door and around the block escapes me entirely.
We chose Saveur to celebrate our anniversary based on other reviews. Unfortunately, we were not impressed with the food, especially for the price. My wife and i love fine dining and don't mind spending good money as long as we feel we are getting our money's worth. We had two appetizers a bottle of wine and our entrees. The wine recommendation was great, one of our appetizers was delicious, but the rest was average and bland at best. I would not recommend this restaurant.
