Had a lovely experience at Vista. Everyone at the table ordered something different, and the food was (mostly) excellent.
Hats off to our server Amelia, though; her candor and professionalism were perfectly balanced and her positive energy was infectious!
Great food and amazing atmosphere! Loved it! Definitely would recommend to my friends!
First Time at the Vista, Service was Very Good and Food Very Good Too. Very Clean and Friendly Staff. The Prices were Reasonable and View of The Inner Harbour was Great.. Will Bring Our Friends Next Time.!
Had a wonderful pre dinner drink and appetizers.
Service was great, food and drinks were great, and can’t beat the view.
It was a fantastic evening. Our waitress was super friendly and checked on us just enough. The food was very delicious as were the cocktails! And a stunning view if the city at night.
This restaurant has a beautiful setting and view. We were happy to be able to book a reservation for brunch since most brunch places are walk in only.
Professional and very pleasant staff.
Views across the city, harbour, and mountains.
This was our 2nd visit to Vista18. The food and service were exceptional both times and we highly recommend it. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for.
The experience was pleasant and the food prepared very well - seems a little pricey but I suppose one is paying in part to be on the 18th floor.
Our waiter fully ignored my partner and her mother on drinks for the entire evening other then first glass of wine.
We have eaten at this restaurant a few times now and it never disappoints! The views are outstanding, service is excellent as well is the food. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting Victoria
Food was fantastic, our server Amelia was fantastic, and the view was the best in the city ! Great night.
Exceptional service, wonderful food, gorgeous view, all round wonderful experience!
I must say it was a very enjoyable evening.Our waiter, Peter,was a huge part of our experience. He was probably one of the most efficient and intuitive waiters I have had in many years. He was engaging enough but not invasive.
The food was very good but I found the menu somewhat limiting. My thought are the room deserves more than hamburger.
In all we had a very lovely evening and will recommend it to our friends.
As someone that eat Vancouver food regularly, this restaurant is very mediocre compared to a lot of the Vancouver restaurants. It's also very noisy. The view is OK, but not top tier.
great selection of entres and very knowledgeable staff to assist in selection.
Fast service and excellent follow up👍
Ambiance and service were excellent. The food was cold steak was tough.
A quiet oasis in the centre of the city with views across the city and harbour, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the mountains.
The staff are professional and extremely helpful.
The food is always excellent with great presentation.
The venue is lovely, nice decor and beautiful view. The staff, from the valet, to lobby, to restaurant, were super accommodating, very professional and friendly. The drinks were delicious - Martini’s on point.
We were unfortunately somewhat disappointed with the food. The menu was varied although a couple vegan options wouldn’t go amiss. I don’t mind paying for a delicious entree however, the food was mediocre. Everything was slightly over cooked. We were advised that we should be aware that the tuna would be raw/rare in centre but it wasn’t. The duck was chewy, the brisket overcooked. The $12 cheesecake was dry and flavourless.
With such a gorgeous venue the food needs to be on point and we did not feel it was. Maybe time for a kitchen change with everything else and everyone else working so hard.
Nice views of the city, great food and cocktails, and friendly service.
A great environment to make you feel comfortable and special.
We had reservations at Vista 18 to celebrate a birthday. Everything was excellent...the view, the food ,the service. A bit pricey but well worth it.
Food was below average but at a very high end price.
Great place to have a wonderful meal and see Victoria. Tremendous service, great food.
There were four of us and the other three really enjoyed their meal. I ordered the strip loin. It was so full of grizzle I could not eat half of it.
Outstanding dinner. Food delicious, view beautiful, service perfect.
Our brunch was a birthday treat for my friend of 62 years! There were only a few tables occupied on this Monday morning. Efran was our conscientious waiter. The view was spectacular, the Mexican inspired breakfast bowls that we ordered were delicious. Efran suggested mimosas to celebrate the birthday, they went down well!
We ended up as the only guests in the restaurant! Surprisingly, my friend was treated to a birthday chocolate mousse dessert, which we shared. How special!!
Then Efran offered to take our photo with the view behind us! Fabulous service and food at Vista 18 in Victoria, British Columbia!! Highly recommend this restaurant.
Only critique is having to pay for bread. Service was excellent and all of us enjoyed the food.
Our best dining experience in Victoria.
The menu had a perfect selection.
Thanksgiving dinner was excellent in taste, presentation & price. Service was outstanding & the view of the sunset was spectacular! Highly recommend.
Food, service , and ambiance is amazing !
I've enjoyed our stay there last night. Everything is perfect !
We had breakfast at Vista 18 on a beautiful Sunday morning. The views simply can’t be beat and the food and service were very good. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
Our server didn’t seem to care much and our drinks were
Often left empty and he would look and keep walking
Lovely restaurant with great views of Victoria from all the tables. Nice anytime of day. Very nice staff. Good selection on the menu.
A great experience, the panoramic views from the 18th floor are amazing, the food is some of the best that Victoria has to offer. I highly recommend that you eat here.
Don't deny yourself.
We had a really pleasant evening here. Our server, Kevin, was attentive and friendly but gave us time when we told him we just wanted a slow evening to enjoy the wine and the view. He was just perfect in his timing and really made sure we were happy with our meals, drinks and wine.
The food was very good, a little weird that you have to pay for bread but other than that, everything was good. I’d go back again and maybe try a glass of wine and dessert. Kind of a hidden gem. We didn’t know there was a restaurant in Victoria that had a great view like this!
Greta food, great views, excellent service. Carly, our server was wonderful,
My husband and I celebrated our 45th anniversary at Vista 18 last night. We first enjoyed a cocktail in Clives downstairs, which was very nice. Then we were taken to a table for two in the restaurant on the 18th floor. I was a bit disappointed at the view of the Marriott (was hoping to see the inner harbour). There was quite a noisy group near us. The service was fine. My rib rye steak was tasty but a bit too salty. My husband enjoyed his pork chop. We’ve heard the ahi tuna is very good, so I’d try that next time. All in all, a nice place to visit in Victoria.
Our usual server, Michelle, look after us as in the past. We both enjoyed the special which came perfectly cooked and presented.
This restaurant if consistant with good service and tasty food.
