We are locals in Victoria and LOVE this restaurant. They have amazing food, interesting menu items and we are grateful for the exceptional COVID precautions they have taken. I feel safe here and cared for, and nurtured and really appreciate that. We sneak here on...dates, have had family dinners here- there's not only beautiful food here, but the decor is gorgeous as well.More

We wanted to go for dinner but it was fully booked so went for lunch instead. Service was great and the restaurant is nicely decorated. We had the mushroom crackling for starter which was really yummy. I really enjoyed my main (the soba noodles) but...my boyfriend thought that the curried mussels were good but not great. The dessert was really good. Would definitely recommend for innovative cuisine!More

First of all we love food, good service and top notch presentation. This was our first visit to Saveur. Definitely won't be our last. Each course was unique yet amazing. Food porn at the very least. Definitely worth making a reservation. Felt super safe considering...covid times and dreaming about eating here again. Yum!More

We were a small group of five and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Saveur. The food was absolutely delightful, well plated and so much flavour! Yes, the portions are small but we personally prefer quality over quantity. We ordered a mix of small plates and...appetizers to start, followed by a main. We felt a bit rushed at the start of the dinner, but when we explained to Brian that we wanted to take our time to enjoy the experience, he agreed and set a slower pace. We will be sure to return on our next trip to Victoria.More

Hands down some of the best food I've ever had, and it is unlike anything else in the city. The creativity and intention that goes into the food and the experience as a whole is next level. Incredible service, wonderful ambiance, superb wine, beautiful plating...and amazing fresh local ingredients! If you have the opportunity you must go here! You won't be disappointed. 10/10 would recommend.More

My recent dinner at Saveur was excellent! I frequently visit a friend in Victoria and we always go out for a nice dinner. She was charged with choosing somewhere with good food and a quiet atmosphere - a challenge in Covid times. Saveur did not...disappoint! Their adherence to Covid rules was superb - hostess/server was masked, plexiglass at the door so no one could just wander in, and diners seated appropriately apart. And the food was amazing. It is certainly the best food I have ever eaten in Victoria. Dinner was a set 3 course menu, with some choices. Chef Robert phoned the day before for our selections. We both chose the scallop appetizer which was both tasty and beautifully plated. As a gardener, I thoroughly enjoyed the use of nasturtiums - leaves in a tasty green foam and blossoms in a delicious vinaigrette. The main courses were equally eye appealing and delicious. My friend had the cod which was perfectly cooked. I had beef tenderloin on a bed of tasty mushrooms with potato pave - both meat and vegetables were without fault. A dessert of lemon "pudding" with Earl Grey crackers ended one of the best meals I have enjoyed in a long time. Thank you Chef Robert and your staff for a delightful evening.More

Religious experience. The prawn appetiser was so stunning I was actually licking the plate. Prawns done two ways and a bisque and yuzu and just an amazing flavour combination. The duck main was comparable and possibly even better with duck breast cooked to PERFECTION, beets,...fennel and a little duck spring roll that was to die for. The chocolate cake with hazelnut puree and chamomile milk cracker combined to create an exceptional flavour profile. This meal was one of my greatest restaurant meals ever.More

Yesterday was my birthday and because I'm not ready to go out to restaurants yet, my hubs bought an amazing meal for us from Saveur. All he had to do was pick it up before 2pm and heat up the dishes as the instructions explained....It was so delicious that I cannot thank you all enough. The Rhubarb Vinaigrette on the green salad was so light and lovely and not too tart nor too sweet..just right; the gnocchi was the best we've ever had (and now we know what all the fuss is about); the Chicken Sausages with Romesco Sauce(!!)...OMG, now I'll be craving that sauce regularly; the roasted veggies, the simple roasted chicken breasts...all perfectly seasoned and with thoughtful, perfect combination of flavours. My COVID birthday was, happily, very memorable indeed. So thank you to all of you concerned at Saveur...we look forward to "seeing" you again soon.More

We had Saveur's Moroccan style dinner last weekend. It was extremely well prepared and a wonderful way to support a local restaurant. The chicken was styled two different ways both of which were outstanding. The salad of local greens was fresh. The couscous excellent especially...the addition of apricots. We also added the pavlova that came with rhubarb compote and rose creme. It was spectacular. A wonderful dinner!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.
