Description: Stage is a small-plate restaurant and wine bar located across from the Belfry Theatre in Victoria's trendy Fernwood neighbourhood. Stage supports local farmers, food artisans, and serves a variety of tapas-style dinner offerings. Options range from duck confit and crispy chicken to made-in-house sausage, vegetarian dishes and the city's largest cheese selection. The 55 seat restaurant's vibe is upbeat and funky while maintaining a classy and unique feel. Brick walls, reclaimed hardwood floors, hanging candles, and rotating local art, all combine to create a truly local Victoria experience. Stage has also won several awards including Top 10 new restaurant in 2005 by En Route Magazine, Restaurant of the Year by Vancouver Magazine, and a Silver Medal at the 2013 and 2014 Vancouver International Wine Festival."Winning over patrons from Fernwood and beyond"! - N.Y. Times

Couldn't have asked for better! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and personable, wish we had gotten her name. My partner is celiac and I would highly recommend this restaurant for other gluten-free individuals. The burnt carrots (the hummus! Oh, the hummus!) And octopus were the stars of the show. Best octopus we have ever enjoyed! Outstanding cocktails, creme brulee to die for, and a comfortable yet upscale atmosphere. Thank you, Stage! We will be back, after telling our friends of course!

We had a wonderful evening at Stage tonight. They have a selection of delicious tapas. We especially liked the gnocchi and the pork dish which was on the specials list.

They have an interesting wine list (both local and international wines) and about 20 different wines which you can order per glass.

The service was also wonderful.

The only let down was that the place can get quite noisy when it is very busy.

Once again had a great visit to Stage. The place is busy, and the people are happy, so it is loud! The food was excellent, the wine choices divine.

My friend and I decided to pop into Stage after checking out one of the local markets. The restaurant was full but there were seats at the bar so we sat there. The bartender, who was actually the owner, took such good care of us the entire night. He knew exactly when to come over and chat and when to leave us be to have our little catch up; his fun energy and enthusiasm made the night so incredibly wonderful! We had planned to stay for one drink but ended up sticking around until closing because we were having so much fun! Neither of us ordered food but looking around at other customers' plates, I can say that the food looked delicious. Needless to say, our cocktails and wine were both extremely satisfying :)
