Restaurant suggestions for anniversary celebration

Hello all. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary? We will be in Victoria at the end of the month and are looking for something a bit more upscale.

We are open to all cuisines except seafood and would prefer something, if possible, within walking distance of the inner harbour.

I appreciate all suggestions please.

Vista 18 in the Chateau Victoria Hotel which is located whithin 3 blocks of the inner harbour. We had a dinner there a few months ago that was really good.....good food, good service, good view. Of all the great restaurants in town, that would be my choice for a memorable evening.

The Blue Crab restaurant is right on the harbour and has excellent food; seafood is a speciality but they offer much else. We have eaten there many times and never been disappointed. Reserve early for a table at or near the windows. http://www.bluecrab.ca/

The Empress Hotel main dining room is also very good. They've had 100 years of practice to get it right. http://www.fairmont.com/empress/

I've heard good things about Vista 18 too though I haven't been there myself. I'd also recommend Il Terrazzo - website http://www.ilterrazzo.com/

We went there for our anniversary and really enjoyed it - good food and good service.

Vista 18 has great views reasonable food.

Il Terrazo has great food and ambience,no views

Blue Crab,good views,good food

La Brasserie Lecole has fab food,but not in the best area .rates very well in reviews

The Lure in the Delta Resort has the whole package IMO

Great views,great food ,classic ambience
