I loved everything about this place from the ambiance to the food and service! They have an adorable outdoor area in the front, but it was cooling off when we arrived, so we sat indoor, but still very nice. Our server was VERY knowledgable about the food and wine and offered suggestions when asked and we all (6 of us)... More

Went for a wedding anniversary dinner at the suggestion of Fairholme Manor. This restaurant is rustic with a trendy vibe. Menu is limited, but everything we had was good. The halibut is not to be missed. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. The resturant can be a little loud. If you are looking for quiet or romantic ask... More

This was intimate perfection... from the service to the food... shared with friends, including venison, steak, halibut, served on a bet of wild greens and lentils. Salad of local greens and wild edibles, and fabulous dessert. We loved every moment of eating and drinking. We had a concert to attend at 8, had arrived at 5:30. We greatly appreciated that... More

...Innovative, still great service from servers, the bar, the management...the mark of any truly great business is to maintain standards, or in fact keep advancing them over many years...and Greg and Sylvia have done so....in addition there are always new ideas, new foods, new wines, new pairings....it keeps one coming back...

We have taken a trip to Victoria to celebrate special events in our life - anniversaries, birthdays, and life events and this is the place we choose to celebrate everything. A lovely restaurant off the beaten path of downtown Victoria and once inside, you feel like you have arrived someplace special. We always the most incredible array of Farm to... More

We have had some great dinners here, but last night we ducked in for a quick shared birthday dessert and they were so gracious and welcoming. The ice cream and cake were delicious, as was the recommended pairing. Our server allowed us to come in after service had ended - so appreciated!

Three of us dined at Cafe Brio this evening. We asked for a quiet table because my mother-in-law has a hearing disability and were very well accommodated with a quiet alcove. The wine list is excellent with all sorts of interesting items that don't appear on your average restaurant list; there are excellent wines by the glass. The restaurant staff... More
