“Relaxed Atmosphere and Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We have been here a few times and always recommend it to family and friends when they are here. If you don't know the area it is not located in the centre of Sidney. You will find it a little north of town nestled amoungst the various marine businesses.

The staff are great! They seem to know when to come by but they are not bothersome. They are knowledgeable about wine selection if you're not certain what would go best with your meal.

The presentation of the food is visually appealing and then you taste it! We haven't been disappointed and we have been there many times. You will appreciate the view out the window if you choose to dine inside or sit on the patio and take in the sea air!

Your senses will thank you!

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We looked for a place to go on our anniversary. The menu had something for everyone, artistically plated, generous portions. The flavours were wonderful and we will definitely go back. Surf and turf appetizer was so good the We had the fillet of beef, one of the best my husband has had and I had the seafood in broth which was so good I was full and just had to stop but look forward to going back. Vanilla bean, ginger creme brûlée was SO good.
Our server was very friendly and knowledgable, the view of the Marina a lovely bonus.
Reservations are a must!

“Great Food and Beautiful BC Waterfront Scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We had a terrific lunch with our friends who had eaten at Sea Glass before. We arrived at noon and ordered lunch specials as well as items off the regular menu. I had the Asian Noodle Salad with a sweet chill dressing, other meals were halibut fish and chips and langoustine and crab roll. All sandwich selections include soup or salad. The portions were adequate, the food was enjoyed by all and the mark-up on the wine was not excessive. The service was attentive but not rushed. By the time we left every seat inside and out on the deck was filled. The view from inside was as good as outside the restaurant. Our friends have enjoyed the breakfast many times and were equally pleased with lunch. Would definitely return again when we are in the area.

“Small, sunny patio brunch overlooking the Marina...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Just happened on this small restaurant after flying into Sydney en route to Victoria. It is very close to the airport located on a spit of land overlooking a small marina. Our brunch was delicious with fresh, local ingredients. The service was good - timely and pleasant and the server accommodated us by setting up a table in the sun on the patio while all other guests were choosing to eat inside. The food was delicious, sun was shining and location was lovely. Would definitely return.

“Great as advertised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had a great meal here on Tuesday, July 8th after reading about this place on TripAdvisor. We were just wrapping up a 17-day odyssey to Alaska, a cruise and a few days in the Vancouver area.
The food was fabulous and we both chose the Ciopino dish. Excellent!!
