“Fine View and Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

A friend and I ate lunch at the Sea Glass Grill this afternoon (she had been there previously for dinner) and we were both very very impressed. We ate outdoors on the deck (the restaurant is associated with a marina) with a lovely view of the gardens and the moored yachts. Service was very good without being overwhelming and the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. The lunch menu is primarily salads, wraps and sandwiches and there is a limited choice of wines (I suspect the wine list and menu for dinner are more comprehensive) but is more than adequate, especially given the quality of the food. I will certainly drive the 20 miles from Victoria again. Sea Glass is certainly worth it.

“Lunch near the Lochside Trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped to try this restaurant as an option for our next cycling trip along Lochside Trail to Victoria. Enjoyed California Shrimp Wraps with a side salad dressed with a sweet chili vinaigrette. The wraps were filled with shrimp, avocado, romaine, tomato and an excellent lemon aioli. No room for dessert this time. Next time would like to try wild salmon sliders or lobster-crab roll. Pleasant waiter, lovely location on a marina.

“Fabulous Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Drove out from Oak Bay to celebrate two birthdays and an anniversary. We enjoy foods that are creative and delicious. We were not disappointed. The appetizers were unique, incredibly delicious and presented beautifully... the same can be said for the entrees-- Espresso beef short ribs? beef tenderloin steak? both to perfection! Prawns, crab in portobello mushrooms, smoke infused risotto?? All savoured to the last piece!

The view is stunning and the service excellent. The servers had a sense of humour and were very attentive while not being intrusive. This was only worth the trip to Sidney but we will definitely come again and make it a recommendation! Keep the chef and the servers!!

“First time won't be the last”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

This use to be the Dock 505 which we loved particularly for its setting and ambience. It became this restaurant about two years ago and we are glad we 'came back'. We had a wonderful breakfast which offered a variety of options to the standard fare of bacon and eggs. The service was very friendly and of course the view of the marina on a sunny day is hard to beat.

“Exceeded Expectations. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

The staff here did a great job. From the second we walked in the door the staff was warm, friendly, and efficient. Food was interesting, beautifully presented with good portion sizes. Flavours were great and food was innovative and well thought out. You could tell the people cooking and serving took pride in the food and the business. Best meal out we've had in quite a while. We will be back to try other dishes!
