Justin and the bar staff are great - the Sushi is excellent as always!
First visit since the Spring. Menu is limited. We shared Squid appetizer which was very tasty and Shrimp/ Scallop Spaghettini which we enjoyed but it was a bit heavy. Service was good.
HI Geoff Thank you for the review. We understand that our menu is limited to what we have had in the past and we agree. Unfortunately we have had to make difficult decisions based on the volume of business during this challenging time which limits our staffing and offerings. I am glad you enjoyed the spaghettini which is our seasonal winter pasta . We appreciate you taking the time to write a review and hope to see you again. Best regards Management
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will definitely dine there again.
HI Deb Thank you for the kind review we are very happy you enjoyed your experience with us and look forward to seeing you again Management
The service here was good, an amazing view, and the food was only decent for a nice restaurant like this. The portion sizes also were not very much.
Essentially you're paying for the view. Overall, it was not worth the price.
HI Kevin We are sorry you didn't enjoy your time with us. I see that you enjoyed some sushi an appetizer and main dish as well. We do feel our menu is competitively priced although not as diverse as we would like but during these struggling times it is within the framework we are able to provide currently. thank you for your perspective Management
The Mussels order was very small and was not impressed with the type of Broth that was used. The Prawn, Scallops and Pasta was served in a Bowl not very good presentation
Maybe better next time
HI Brad We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the mussels and frites. The order itself is an appetizer and not meant to be a larger portion like we have had in the past. The broth is a garlic butter sake broth we have not had much negative feedback however you clearly did not enjoy. As far as the pasta although it is not served in a tradition shallow pasta bowl, the bowl is handmade by the chef. thank you for your feedback Management
Interesting menu choices. Affordable: not over-priced at all. Friendly, helpful service. Fabulous setting. The chocolate ganache lemon tart was the best dessert I have ever had.
All good. Felt safe. Enjoyed our meal
Tables were set apart as covid protocol requirements. Staff were friendly and wore masks..Service was good. Menu adequate although more selection would have been appreciated. Food presentation was good., although chicken was a little dry.A nice experience for New Years Day.
Food was wonderful - ambience so Christmas-y - scenery best bar none with the stormy white waves crashing over the rocks
The prawn and scallop spaghettini was very good. The romaine heart salad was also very tasty but overpriced.
Beautifully decorated. Our table was on the main level but their was an upper level seating of people sitting right above us and with no barrier. Which a little disconcerting.
The starter chicken liver parfait was outstanding. However the lamb main course was cool at best and e vegetables especially the potatoes were very undercooked. The fish main was hot but the cooked vegetables also undercooked. The dessert tart was different but the lemon with caramel chocolate didn’t quite work for us.
Great service, food and atmosphere! Will be back for sure as I hear the sushi is excellent!
We had the lamb and catch of the day. Both were extremely delicious. We started with the muscles, we shared this and it was a good size appetizer.
Excellent meal and atmosphere, despite Covid protocols. Lovely place to enjoy an evening.
Service was excellent and friendly. I had the mussels which were quite dry and suspect not very fresh. The broth was a let down Usually one would love to soak up some sauce with bread but it wasn't that exciting. I suspect the mussels had been sitting out for a while and were not that fresh.
The bento box provided a good combination of sashimi, sushi and tempura.
Great relaxing place. Good food and brilliant service.
Hi Richard Thank you for the kind review! We appreciate your continued support during this critical time for us and always happy to welcome you back Happy Holidays from the crew and the Marina Restaurant Sincerely Management
Was disappointed with the food and value paid for the meal.
Hello Island We are sorry you were so disappointed clearly throughout your experience. We would welcome the details of why you felt the quality of food, service, ambience and value were so poor so we might address it and improve our overall offerings during this critical time so that we can continue to stay open for all guests. Sincerely Management
Everything was very good, have already booked to go back
Glad that the Marina restaurant is back in business, with a pretty full menu too.
Excellent cocktails, delicious appetizers and mains... all good. Service was very friendly and attentive, if a bit slow to start.
Lovely setting, good food and service. Reasonable prices.
We always love the Marina. Beautifully situated, lovely staff, good and imaginative food, especially in these dark Covid times. I especially like the Japanese style steamed sablefish with salmon, miso-roasted squash and zucchini, smoked salmon mashed potatoes, a delicious kale goma-ae, and the beautiful rice.
Thank you Francis for the wonderful review!! We look forward to seeing you again and appreciate your ongoing support
Nice view, good location etc. The food was NOT as good as we remember. Must have had some changes etc. in the kitchen or with mgmt. Can't blame this stuff on Covid either. Very few people in the dining room on the day of our visit. Sorry, only a 3 from us.
Might be worth another try once the world is back to some type of normal!!!
My husband and I came him for my birthday dinner. We are regulars at the Marina but preCovid we almost always ate at the Sushi Bar. It was a real treat when the Marina opened with a sushi menu for the entire space. The ambiance couldn’t be better - the main dining room has big windows out onto the harbour and with COVID spacing the room seems even more elegant. The staff is experienced and provide excellent service. Tonight we opted for the regular menu which is all that is presented these days. I had my eye on the sablefish and prawns entree that I had seen in a previous visit. Our salad was excellent and was our sorbet dessert and my Monte Cristo cocktail. The sablefish dish was a little strange. This dish is one of the most expensive at $38 but there were only a few small squares of sablefish and a few prawns. The majority of the dish was a variety of items that sounded good in theory but just didn’t work in my opinion. I enjoyed the deep fried tofu square. I usually enjoy the kale gomae salad here but something seemed lacking tonight. A few vegis and cold seaweed. A scoop of what tasted like cold potato salad that I didn’t remember seeing on the menu. I would definitely visit again but pass on this dish.
The Marina is one of our favourites. Have not been since the pandemic shut down. It was a little sad. It was so empty and devoid of ambiance. The lighting was too bright. Our server was wonderful and the meal great. We hope they can decorate a bit to make it
Inviting again while safe.
Very covid friendly! They serve on end table so waiter keeps distance. Thoroughly felt safe taking my 81 year old mom there for birthday. Food was great.
Mary, Thank you so much for taking the time to share a review with us from your recent visit to the Marina Restaurant. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time spent with us! We look forward to feeding you again soon :) Marina Restaurant Management
Great experience. Restaurant is doing it right ....very spacious. Limited but good selection on menu.
Beautiful view. Great service.
The ceasar salad was terrible. Whatever dressing they used, it was most definitely not mixed well. Blobs. The bread was burnt. I had the salmon which was cooked fine. The blob of Kale was like it was squeezed between the fingers and blobbed onto the plate. Mashed potatoes with 2 peas sitting on top had no flavour. The squash was fine. The solidly molded brown rice scoop tasted like it had been sitting around for a while. I have to say that this experience at the Marina was NOT GOOD.
As this restaurant has just opened, it is back where many were before. Stark table with no cutlery and nothing welcoming. That will change I hope and soon.
While the sushi was great our dinner companions' meal was very disappointing. They had really looked forward to the re-opening of this restaurant. But the salmon was overcooked and vegetables were too tough to eat.
It was the most expensive lunch I have had in Victoria. It was far too expensive for what we got. We will not be back until things improve.
The food was so delicious and would definitely go back!
It was an empty restaurant at 2:30 pm they just opened. I was really looking forward to a great meal with a colleague. Our hostess was kind and seated me promptly. The coffee was cold, the roll we asked for not spicy opps had sriracha built in (it hid the flavour of the real crab), the server dropped off our lunches but forgot enough chop sticks then was nowhere to be found, until I asked for help in the kitchen. Yes there were no other patrons and maybe it was the time of day but still for an $85 lunch for two. Sorry I can only tip 10% for poor service.
View was awesome, until on the way out I looked back and saw the dead flies on the window sills of the sushi bar, yuck.
We are very happy that the Marina has reopened. We had the best food and dining experience that we have had since March, in a comfortable and safe environment. Food was superb, service was attentive but safely distanced, and the location was as elegant as ever. It was a wonderful evening. Thank you!
Our favourite place to eat! Fresh food and great menu!
Sushi was great. Nice view. A bit noisy.
Chose Marina for Friday Nite Date Night. One of the best decisions in months. The food was outstanding: proper proportion / mouth-watering / appealing.
Service was off. Once the meal arrived, our server did not reappear until post meal, well after a glass refill was desired.
First but not last visit I wish the restaurant well in thus survival era year
Thank you for taking the time to share a review with us from your recent visit to The Marina Restaurant. We are so grateful for the continued support our community has shown us through these troubling times. We look forward to feeding you again soon! Cheers, Marina Restaurant Management Staff
We came for the sushi and it was as good as ever. It worked well to be seated in the main dining area and we also had a brief chat with Yun, a gracious lady.
Geoff, Thank you for taking the time to share a review with us from your recent visit. We are grateful for your continued support. We have added a dinner menu since you visited, and we hope you will join us again soon! Cheers, Marina Restaurant Management Staff
Its such a treat to have the main restaurant for sushi. Before the sushi bar was just tucked into a small space on the side of the restaurant. We felt like royalty in the big open space with awesome views and tables spaced far apart. The food was as good as always. However, we didn't recognize any of the staff - they didn't seem as experienced as the staff we became accustomed to. All minor glitches but still they distracted from our experience. For example, we asked if there was a sauce to accompany the tempura. Our waitress said sure she could bring us some but never did. Despite the fact that soon afterwards she wandered by our table looking like she was trying to find something to do. Communication seemed a bit more difficult - perhaps due to the masks but it also just didn't seem like they were on our wavelength. All in all I would go back and recommend this place.
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a review from your recent visit to our restaurant. We can assure you that we have retained our pre-Covid staff, and we would like to thank you for your patience as we navigate these uncertain waters. We look forward to feeding you again soon! Thank you again. Cheers, Marina Restaurant Management
Sushi menu is tasty. Service was gross. Rude, stuck up hostess and server. Will come back for takeout only.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review from your recent visit to The Marina Restaurant. We strive to provide our guests with the most pleasant experience possible and it is disappointing to hear that your experience did not live up to our or your standards. If you could provide us with a few more details from your visit it would help us with our training in the future and to ensure these errors are not recurring. Thank you, Marina Restaurant Management
What a pleasant and enjoyable evening. Service was great. Sushi was excellent. Ambience was unmatched. Perched at a window seat watching the rain drizzling down on the marina and the bay beyond while enjoying a hot sake.. Definitely go more often.
Geoff, Thank you so much for your kind words! We are grateful for our supportive community. Stay tuned for new entrée items coming soon! The Marina Restaurant Management
Great service and delicious food as always ‘
Excellent service, good food, wine a little pricy.
