Had the chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings - great food and excellent wine matched with the food. Will definitely keep the Courtney Room on our list of “go-to” restaurants whenever we’re in Victoria.

Sit by the bar and watch them prepare the amazing cocktails and you will understand why they are so fantastic! Food was better than I expected and the Sommelier really helped to pair a great French wine. Overall... a great date night!

The Courtney Room was a great choice to celebrate a special occasion.

Greated with warm welcome, coat check offered at the door. We got to our table and saw a card, was given a complimentary cider. It was a new level of dine in experience.

We are definitely going to come back when we visit Victoria again!

Thank you the Courtney Room for a wonderful dinner experience.

The restaurant was so noisy loud we had to yell our conversation. Even an upstairs waiter who took over our table when our server left shift, told us he couldn’t work downstairs it was too loud.

Three of us ordered the special for $28 that amounted to six tortellini in a bowl. We were still hungry and really disappointed. The other 3 in our party of six, supplemented our meals with food from their plates.

Food and service were excellent. We we went in it was quite noisy at 6pm but much quieter by the time we left. It is a very expensive restaurant although we knew that before hand. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

Food was mediocre and overpriced.
The presentation of the cod dish was nice but it had very little flavour. Very disappointing especially considering the price.

Very good food served in an attractive setting. Service was very good with attentive staff that did not intrude. Sommelier was helpful and knowledgeable. Prices for food and wine were at the high end. Most of the wines were in the $60 plus range.

We went for a special thanksgiving meal, our first time at the Courtney room - overall the food was really nice! I think maybe because we were eating a menu that the whole restaurant was eating the vegetables on the plate may have lost some focus and we found were lacking.. our plates came to table hot but veg were lukewarm and undercooked. The meat however (we had lamb) was cooked to perfection. Otherwise it was a beautiful meal :)

This is our go-to fine dining restaurant in Victoria and unfortunately the chef tasting and wine pairing left us disappointed and hungry. It took almost an hour to get our first course, wine pairings came out far earlier than the food course. We didn’t know where our waitress was much of the night. Overall disappointing night when spending $400 for two.

I was disappointed in the entire evening. I have been many times and loved it but this time was very disappointing. Based on the price point this was not a great value. I never expected to be saying this. Sitting in the fine dining section was not even close to fine dining. Very noisy from the casual dining area and the music was not what I would expect for fine dining. It was perfect for the casual rambunctious section. I would recommend to a friend with reservations. I would tell of my experience and let them make up their own mind.

The apple desert could have used some apple slices on the plate. The desert lacked apple flavor. The portions of the meal selections were very small. We didn't use the complete full courses dinner selection.

Items we chose were superb as was the service. Our only comment is the menu is very limited. If you fancy shellfish, salmon, sable fish, roast chicken or other items normally found at at a
top restaurant you will be disappointed. Perhaps the menu
is a result of staff shortages or supply chain issues?
