Worst experience ever. Had a gift certificate from Christmas, showed it to the staff when we entered. Had to call the person who gave it (embarrassing) sat in the restaurant, ignored for 30 minutes, while three of them talked to the person who gave the...gift certificate, all we were offered in that 30 minutes was a tepid glass of water. After 40 minutes they finally said it’s sorted, asked us what we wanted? We said “our coats please“ and left. Never have I been treated like that in any restaurant. I’ve had beater sevice at McDonald’s! I would not recommend to buy gift certificates from this establishment. They are like a bunch of monkeys who can’t keep their books up-to date.More

Amazing waitress, super cool, super friendly. The beef tartar was a religious experience with bull kelp and nori adding to the delight. The halibut for main was cooked so delicately that it was incredible with a plate licking sauce. The chocolate hazelnut dessert was to...die for with a perfect coffee accompaniment. Liese loved her mushroom crackling, fish tacos and custom gluten free dessert. Everything about this dining experience was sheer perfection.More

Covid has drastically affected the restaurant business and so I was interested to see how Le Saveur, our favourite local restaurant, responded. They created a Take-Home Family Meal Kit and the one that we ate was excellent in every way. Each week the restaurant changes...the menu. Customers are asked to give the restaurant at least 48 hours’ notice and at an agreed upon time a shopping bag with all of the elements is ready for pick up. In our case the menu was composed of: - Parsnip soup with an herb finishing oil - Oso Bucco - Cheese risotto - and a mushroom and sunchoke ratatouille. When we got it home and had a closer look at each of the elements it was immediately apparent how much thought had gone into everything. Each food element was packaged separately with a label describing the contents and giving instructions on how to reheat for serving. This degree of forethought and attention to detail made it easy to get it from package to table. And the result? Ample portions of everything and it all tasted simply delicious. For as long as the Covid restrictions are in place we plan to order again. And when this pandemic is over, and things get back to normal, we will be happy to eat in the restaurant once again. In the meantime, this turned out to be a great alternative to that, and as I said, an excellent experience.More

Visiting from Austin Texas where we have amazing steak on almost every corner. Saveur's Tenerloin was hands down one of the best steaks ever. The whole meal was very good and recommend the Octopus appetizer !

Excellent food with incredible service. The co-ordination between the front and the back of the house was very well done. We highly recommend the Beef carpaccio, Octopus and Salmon dishes

We enjoyed some interesting food here. They have mainly small plates and vegan preferences, also scallops and tasty chicken wings. The service was friendly and efficient. There is a small street patio.

I read about Saveur On various top restaurants in Victoria, and it did not disappoint. Beware their hours, as when we were there they were only open Friday through Sunday. We got an early reservation and arrived when the place was empty, which was fine...because we got fantastic service. The food was amazing the cocktails were fabulous, the wine list is superb. We had an eaten, and had carpaccio, tuna, the meat duo, muscles. All were incredibly tasty.More

Always skeptical when I read reviews, but this was a great experience. Mike our waiter was great, the bartender makes killer drinks, wine list is good and the food was exceptional. The mussels and the tomato salad, we had to ask for more bread to...soak up the delicious sauces. Highly recommend.More

It's a 15 minute walk. You'll have to email Saveur to check out availability. They do have a vegetarian set 5 course menu.

Un seule personne nous a parler en Francais lorsque mous avons visiter ce restaurant. Le nom du restaurant est en Francais mais je penses que c'est leur limite et ils ont qu'une personne du staff qui parle en Francais.
