The dinner and service was fantastic. The bread, the mac’n’ cheese was so delicious. We ordered Mac N Cheese and the Eggplant Moussaka. The moussaka portion was tiny for the $26. It should have had a side of salad or something. It was more like...an appetizer. The Mac N Cheese and bread made up for it. We did not leave hungry. The staff are wonderful and the variety and flavours of the food make this a spot for a good meal. I will definitely eat here again.More

Ordered half order because I wasn’t super hungry and things are so so expensive these days… tiny little bowl was more like 1/3 order compared to friends full order… very small. Also ordered their hot toddy drink…. So sour and lemony that I couldn’t take...more than a few sips as it was so acidic my stomach started to hurt… yes since sensitive stomach so if you do - don’t order it.More

Hello. Walking around downtown Victoria with no dinner plans. We came up on a vegetarian restaurant? Let's go, let's give them a try!!!WOW, WOW, WOW. As a working professional chef for 35 years, these guys killed it!!! Enough said??? Heck yes. Well, a few more...words. Warm beet salad, yes!!! Had the two features of the day. Once again, yes!!!. A restaurant committed to a concept and staying true to their ideas, outstanding. Keep up the great work.More

After some « meaty » meals, we longed for something healthier. We choose Be Love as their offering looks promising. We took the tomato and basil soup followed by the Spring burger and one of specials (with a name I have already forgotten). It was rice pasta...with vegetables, olives, capers and basil pesto. Both the burger and the pasta were tasty. We closed our dinner by sharing the Mexican chocolate dessert that was delicious. The local cider from Cowichan Valley and the roiboos we had as drinks were excellent. Good service, fine settings and good value for money.More

Rating 4.5 Bright and high ceilings, nice decor, great food and friendly service. They make everything from scratch and it’s all vegan and gluten free, including the spinach roti for the Kati roll. The roti had a nice texture and did not break or crack...apart. The potato/cauliflower filling with pickled onions was nice but I was expecting a different flavour based on my Kati roll experience. It was tasty though and very filling. The side mushroom soup was ahhhhmazing! So tasty and comforting on a rainy day. The cacao smoothie was good but way too big to have with the meal so I put it in a take away cup. I ordered a piece of berry cake to go to enjoy later and it was nice….not too sweet. The servers were friendly and helpful. The items were pricey but the quality was excellent. I’m so happy I found this place😊More

OMG what a treat. Terrific vegan selections, enjoyed flavor combinations we're not familiar with and so enjoyed. Had the mushroom burger and the BBQ tempeh burger w/soup. Such treats and we saved room to split a Mexican spiced cocoa cup, total YUM. Had had an...exhausting day and this was such a lift. Will definitely go back, we're visiting so our time is limited but MUST enjoy again before we leave. Job well done!More

Being gluten free and vegan, it is often difficult for me to find food I can eat at a restaurant, but not at Be Love. Plus their food is creative, and tasty, and mostly local and organic. What could be better?

Best restaurant experience in as long as I can remember. Visited for lunch with a colleague and had the Mac and cheese- 10/10. I am not vegan, and this was still some of the best I have ever had. Service was impeccable. Also had a...delicious lemon kombucha drink which was so tasty, refreshing and perfectly sweet. Nice, simple decor. Can’t say enough good things!More

When arriving my family and I were greeted with robotic servers that had no sense of communication. Service was sloppy with little to no interaction and no eye contact. Server spilled water on the table while filling my glass yet failed to fill my wife’s...glass, took dishes without asking if we were finished, and gave us food we didn’t order. On a brighter side, food was healthy and super tasty. Both my wife and I had the Mac and Cheese and loved it followed by the lime cheesecake which was incredible for being both gluten and dairy free. If you’re looking for a really great spot for tasty healthy food, this is an awesome spot, but don’t expect anything short of subpar service.More

The emphasis on quality is top notch and our dinner was enjoyable, but a couple of events brought the rating down a notch. When our trio entered the restaurant, we noticed a table outside was available and the inside seating was half full. We asked...to sit outside and the gentleman asked if we had reservations which we did not. He then indicated we could sit at a table in the back or on the stools mid restaurant. As we were there for just over an hour, the restaurant emptied a bit more and no one was seated outside during our stay and the other outside table emptied shortly after we were seated. We found that odd that our request to sit outside was denied.( we saw no reservation cards on any table while there. The other item was the Mezze plate we ordered and we were advised that they were out of olives that evening, so the plate would now have additional picked veggies. I found that odd that a restaurant that is so inventive in its dishes could not substitute another item from the kitchen to round out the plate...in addition, the additional veggies seemed the same size as our last mezze ordered the previous week. A Mezze works with multiple items.. a distinct flavor taken away seems to reduce the taste enjoyment.More

A friend suggested we go here when we planned on meeting for dinner. Right from making the reservation to the end of our meal everything was wonderful. The service was friendly and genuine, the selection and quality of food and drinks outstanding. Wish we lived...in Victoria as we would be moving in! Thank youMore

On the weekend and evenings, yes. You may get lucky but there are often no spare tables. Lunchtimes are better
