The food was amazing. Unique flavors and everything cooked to perfection.
We had the tasting menu. Service was on point and food was excellent.
Food was amazing. Environment was intimate and very warm, great for date night. The service was top notch! Would highly recommend the tasting menu!
Saveur is s perfect name for this restaurant. In a few words "an amazing blend of flavours"
The tasting menu at Saveur with the wine pairing is a full experience. What a way to spend an evening! 10/10
Been waiting to do Saveur for a long time, and finally had good company to appreciate it. I had heard mixed reviews but I was very impressed. The chef's tasting menu was on point.
The tasting menu provided so many treats. Such a blend of flavours, textures and all presented artfully. Once again you exceeded expectations and gave us a memorable evening. I would highly recommend Saveur
We had another great meal at Saveur Restaurant. Staff are friendly and supportive of those which live with mobility challenges.
As usual the chef surpassed his excellent!
Honestly one of the best meals I have had in years. The food was exquisite and the menu exciting. I can't stop thinking about the experience.
Thank you Lisa for the lovely review of your evening dining at Saveur, we are thrilled to hear you had a memorable experience, and hope to welcome you back soon.
Service was amazing!!! Food was incredible!!! We had the chefs menu along with the wine pairings and they complimented each other perfectly. Our sommelier was very informative and had a great personality describing the wine notes. Overall amazing experience and would travel the 4 hours from home just to have dinner here again!!!
Thank you Richard for the glowing review of your evening at Saveur, I will make sure to pass along the compliments to the front of house staff and Chef's. The Chef is currently busy in the kitchen creating new dishes for the tasting menu in the upcoming weeks; we hope to welcome you back when you feel up to braving the 4 hour commute to Victoria.
The food was fantastic. Service - despite having a number of staff come to our table for various reasons, left a little to be desired. I sat with an empty plate at the side of my table and watched staff walk by a number of times. Otherwise, great food, great wine list. We will be back.
Saveur was amazing. I took my daughter for her birthday and she loved it. They gave her glass of champagne which was unexpected but so appreciated! She turned 22 and said she had never been treated so well. The food was spectacular. On our way out they gave her a birthday card a lovely touch .
Happy 22nd Birthday to your Daughter! We are so glad she enjoyed her birthday evening with us, and had a memorable experience. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
This has been a favorite of mine since it opened. The price of the tasting menu and wine pairings have risen steeply since then. I visited with a friend on a weeknight when it wasn't too busy. The service was top notch - enthusiastic, available at the right time but not overbearing or pretentious. We especially liked the enthusiasm that the sommelier had in explaining the wines. We ordered pescatarian menus which we enjoyed overall. The squid dish was not our favorite although for both of us, there was nothing wrong with the dish - it was just not too our taste. My friend didn't finish her meal and she turned down the waitress's suggestion to send it back for something else. But the waitress still showed up with a replacement gnocci dish which we shared. It was heavenly and we wished it had been on the menu instead of the squid. The wine pairings were bang on even though for the most part they were fairly inexpensive wines. The night was absolutely perfect. But I must be honest and say that in my opinion, despite everything being so perfect, that the cost of our meal was over the top in my opinion. As in double what I would normally consider an expensive meal out in Victoria. In my opinion there could have been a little less food and wine and a more reasonable price. For me now, the tasting menu experience is strictly a very special occasion meal with only one guest.
A delightful combination of ingredients for the world's best Eggs Benny! Service was attentive and responsive, and great atmosphere. I'm returning next week.
Excellent food prepared to perfection. Portions abundant and an excellent selection. The tasting menu looked great but everyone at the table must order it so it limited the option. Wine list adequate but as we have found in Canadian restaurants they all seem to be lacking in quantity but selections were good. The chicken was well seasoned and prepared just right. All in all I would recommend.
Thank you Wire for the recommendation, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience dining with us and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Amazing service and amazing food. Anniversary dinner was awesome. Booked for Birthday celebration in December.
Thank you Karen for the kind words about your dining experience at Saveur. Happy Anniversary, we are thrilled to hear that you had an outstanding night and look forward to welcoming you back to celebrating a Birthday in December.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner. Saveur is a special occasion place with a casual and chic vibe. Love the high ceilings and gorgeous lighting and wallpaper. The food was delicious! Our appetizers - gnocchi and heirloom tomato salad with chevre - were fresh and original. Our steaks were very satisfying. And the lemon dessert was refreshing. Our servers were friendly and knowledgeable. All in all - a big success!
Thank you Samantha for taking your time to share your experience at Saveur. Happy anniversary, we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed everything on your special night. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
We had a great experience. I would absolutely recommend foodies to visit this place. Every dish was on point. What a gem!
Thank you Sol for such kind words about your evening dining with us at Saveur. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you visit town.
The food and service were both amazing! Lots of Gluten-free options to choose from which was nice, and the room itself is modern and hip without being stuffy.
Thank you Mathew for the kind review about your experience at Saveur. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
Very nice experience for an everyday meal.
One of the best Victoria restaurants for quality and taste. I really enjoyed the dinner, however I feel their menu is too limited. The main focus seems to be the set menu (which looked delicious), however the entire table must order it (or no one). That leaves the a la carte, which has very few options. I would suggest they consider three rotating dinner specials.
Great food in a small intimate space!
Thank you for taking your time to tell us about your experience at Saveur. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Wonderful food and really outstanding service. Yes it is a bit expensive but it is a rare thing in the world today when you actually get what you've paid for.
Thank you Nigel for taking your time to share your experience at Saveur. We look forward to having you join us again soon.

Incredible food, attentive and friendly staff, accommodating for dietary restrictions/needs, overall an amazing chefs tasting experience.
Thank you Amanda for such kind words about your experience at Saveur. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!
We had an incredible time at Saveur, and would highly recommend it in the future. I specified in our reservation that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and they were sweet enough to give us champagne after dinner to mark the occasion . All courses were delicious and deliberate, a well thought out menu by the chef. Our only complaint was that the music didn't really match the atmosphere and created a somewhat dissonant ambiance, but it wasn't enough to hamper the wonderful service or beautiful dishes.
Happy Anniversary to you both! We are so glad you chose to join us to celebrate your special day. Thank you for the kind words about your experience dining with us. We appreciate your feedback on the music, we will look into that moving forward. We look forward to seeing you two in again soon!
Phenomenal tasting menu. We did the wine pairings as well, and did not regret it.
Thank you for taking your time to provide feedback on your evening at Saveur. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your tasting menu, and hope to welcome you back again soon!
We had the chefs choice menu. At 95 CAD it was expensive but the food was exquisite. One of best fine dining ‘taster’ menus I have ever had.
Thank you for taking your time to tell us about your dining experience at Saveur. We are thrilled to hear it is one of the best tasting menus you have had. We hope to see you in again as the menu grows and evolves through each season.
Fabulous meal. Perfect balance of quantity, flavours, presentation and service. Recommend highly. So accommodating. Perfect date night!
Thank you Konasgirl for taking your time to tell us about your evening dining at Saveur. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next date night!
Excellent food. But small venue so we sat fairly close to fellow diners. Higher end prices but good sized portions that don’t leave you hunting your plate for the food.
Thank you Ross for taking your time to provide feedback about your evening. We are glad you enjoyed the food and look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit.
This was hands down the best dinner I've ever had. Such incredible, creative courses. I'm vegetarian and I get soooo tired of pasta! This was amazing!
Thank you Susan for taking your time to tell us about your evening at Saveur. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. The Chef loves working with the wide variety of vegetables that we receive from the farms every week, this allows him to create inspired vegetarian menus as well as our regular tasting menu. We look forward to having you join us again!
My wife and I went to Saveur for her 40th birthday dinner. The staff made an exception for us and allowed us to have the Chef’s tasting menu with wine pairing while our kids (eight and ten) shared an entrée (normally the table is required to all eat of the Chef’s tasting menu).
All of the staff were lovely. The atmosphere was modern and elegant without being at all pretentious. The food was among the best I’ve ever had and was paired with equally fine wine choices.
While this was one of the more expensive dinners we’ve shared as a family, it was something we will long remember as a great one. Fine dining out isn’t something we do often, but a few times a year we treat ourselves and this was a definite win.
Thanks for a great evening!
Happy 40th Birthday to your wife, We are glad you chose to celebrate with us at Saveur. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the evening and had a memorable family night out. Thank you for the kind words about the food, I will also make sure to pass the praises to our front of house staff. We hope to welcome your family back on your next special occasion!
Excellent brunch. Flavors were distinct and presentation fine. The top in a very competitive genre.
Thank you Ian for the kind words about your brunch at Saveur. We look forward to seeing you back again soon!

A perfect evening. We had the chef's tasting menu - fabulous, beautiful food, exceptional service, and worth every penny. Everything on each plate was perfection and balanced. I live in Nanaimo and whenever I get to Victoria, I treat myself to the tasting menu at Saveur - and I'm always so happy I did.
Thank you Sharon for taking your time to share such a great review about your experiences at Saveur. We are so glad to hear you come see us when you are in town.
