Thank you for a lovely evening!!! My guest and I were just meeting up to have a few drinks and a snack but we felt very welcomed and well looked after despite not having a huge order. I appreciated the selection of wines BTG(it's nice to not have to spend $15 a glass, especially after getting used to drinking boxed wine from the grocery store in 2020 haha). A cocktail sample was delivered to us as a treat, and I just love those little touches that even in these crazy times make you feel welcomed. Being two industry veterans (aka kind of snobs) we both really appreciated your beautiful glassware(these things matter!!) My crab cakes were top notch. The level of care towards health measures and social distancing was excellent-I felt very safe. It wasn't my first visit and it won't be my last-I've already got reservations for dinner with my mom next week :)

Took my partner here to have a little taste of luxury as we celebrated his birthday. And I think we achieved just that. Steaks were both cooked to perfection, would highly recommend the seasonal sides. Cocktails were light and refreshing. Very clean, super friendly and attentive staff, with co-vid you are generously spaced from any other tables, music playing was light and cheerful 60s-70s throwbacks (we quite enjoyed this). Overall if you decide to dine here you are in for a pleasant night.

First I would like to thank the staff at Victoria’s. We had great customer service right when we stepped into the venue and we were also greeted bye by the host.

The chef brought us out white fish ceviche as a little tasting and our waiter, Tim was absolutely amazing. He was genuinely so kind and accommodating.

During dinner they brought out a creamsicle flavoured sorbet to clean our palate which most restaurants don’t offer. I’ve gone to so many expensive restaurants and they don’t offer that. I LOVE Victoria’s and will be returning. I hope their customer service is always this consistent. I’ve already told my friends how amazing the restaurant is and posted the food on my social media outlets.

The only thing I didn’t like was the steak beef tartare biscuits. It was too thick and overly toasted for my liking.

Overall the customer service and food was amazing!

Its COVID so everything gets some slack.
The appetizers are fantastic except their charcuterie board has no cheese. Thats a meat platter don't call it what it isn't. Steak tartare was phenomenal and seafood platter was very good.
Mains: the risotto was amazing but the steaks were charred, French fries were soggy and the black cod was completely raw and very bland.
Our server let us sit for 15 minutes without menus before he told us that we had to go online to read the menu. And this was after waiting 45 minutes for our reservations. Who doesn't want to eat at 10pm right?

Typically we love this place and always have incredible service. However, this time our server was less than attentive. To be fair, it wasn’t entirely his fault. He seemed to be serving the majority of the tables while the other female server and female manager were socializing with each other. A little team work goes a long way in the service industry.

This was a celebration lunch for my sister’s birthday and our first time at Victoria’s. The decor is pleasant and understated. Covid requirements for distancing made the restaurant seem quite stark with few tables. Everything had a clean, crisp look to it. One distraction is the large, front window that opens onto the traffic on the street. Although there were not sounds of traffic heard, the visual of the passing cars was not in keeping with the mood of the place.

The service was excellent!

The food was also excellent. I had the lobster club which was better than any lobster type sandwich or po’ boy that I have had in the past. My sister raved about the crab cakes.

I am certain that I will be returning to Victoria’s despite the hour plus drive from Niagara On The Lake. I am eager to share the Seafood Tower with someone special!

Really excellent service - responsive, courteous, highly professional.

We had the charcouterie board as a starter. Limited selection of meats, and no cheeses on offer. But overall it was fine.

The flat iron was good. Nice seasoning and perfect doneness.

We ordered the broccolini as a side. Good flavour but the stems were a bit tough.

The scallops were outstanding. They sat on a bed of risotto. It was quite good.

Mousse for dessert. It was perfect.

The beer list heavily favours Clifford Brewing. Nothing against that place, but it would be nice to see some other local beers represented.

All in all, this place is legit. It has all the substance of a fine dining restaurant, and none of the pretense.

Thanks for the 5 star review Zack F. Giving great service is so important to us at Victoria's, and making people feel as if our restaurant is an extension of our home is always our goal. We noticed that there were a couple of items that did not completely hit the mark for you on your meal and will look at the items you noted and improve upon them. Supporting local companies is very important to us and we will always add new suppliers both in our food as well as well as beverage line ups !

Phenomenal, the menu is small yet I literally wanted everything on it. I'm sure my next three to four visits are all going to be completely different starters and mains. I also like having the sides separate, it allows everyone to share and they are generous portions. My wife and I shared the seafood platter as our starter, it was delicious and easily could have satisfied three to four people as a starter. For our mains my wife had the gnudy pasta, I tried some and it was delicious. I had the whole branzino, equally delicious and visually, a beautiful dish albeit little boney. We shared the candid yams and heirloom beets for our sides. The yams were fantastic, but the beets weren't really what I was expecting, okay just not for me. The only thing that I would have preferred would to have had some bread or something to nibble on with the wine while we waited for our starters. Nevertheless we will be back, sooner than later, and I'm sure as soon as people start finding out about this new little hotspot, it's not going to be too easy to get a table on a Saturday night!

Another great meal. Started off with the crab cakes with frisee and tomatoes witj homemade remoulade. A nice change from standard cocktail sauce. Crab cakes were succulent with no filler. For dinner, i had pan seared scallops served over mushroom risotto. I was very impressed and enjoyed it. Good portion size, amazing flavours and everything was cooked perfectly. I was wowed again. Service was once again impeccable. The greeting at the front door at entry and exit was warming and sincere the staff made us feel welcomed. Our server was amazing.
