  • Upon first entering the restaurant, you are unsure as to what your to do, there is no sign to say please wait to be seated, We waited by chairs, there was a woman who was seated ahead of us, her spouse came along and said are we still waiting? You can see the waiters and waitress and they can see you. The one woman with the very long hair was setting tables. She looked at us and did not acknowledge us, then a man who was also waiting on tables, came along, and said I will be with you in a few minutes. In all time of waiting to be acknowledge was around 10 mins. Now it turned out the couple ahead of us, had reservations and nobody had bother with them? I thought this can't be good for us, we had no reservations. Well it turned out that another waitress walking around, came to help us, and seated us in the first guy who said he would help us in few mintues section. So I had ordered a Beet salad for $10.00)shake my head twice... it was just a few greens and some strings of beets, with 2 thin slices of beets under it, the dressing was (not there) -tasteless. I was pretty mad at myself for ordering that for the amount of money. Very small portion. My hubbie had duck wings(3), I don't remember the price, for dinner I ordered the NewYork Strip Lion(blah) it was very fatty and chewy. Did not enjoy it at all. Hubbie had the special for $30.00 the portion was very small portion, and dessert came in a espresso cup (2OZ) of chocoate mouse(really????) In total we spent with tip $120.00 for two, so I saw Keg prices but not with Keg foods.. I complain that the Keg is overpriced, but I have to say, I would of rather spent $120 at the Keg than what we did at Vic's Steakhouse. We would not go back and would not recommend to anyone. Staff were ok but could use training in acknowledgement in customers waiting.

  • Order: $30-Special and NewYork Steak not on special, Beet Salad, 2 Ceasar drinks, one Long Island Ice Tea

  • Upon entering the restaurant the appearance was modern and welcoming, however we were left wondering if we were to seat ourselves or wait to be seated as no sign was there to indicate. A server saw us and we decided to seat ourselves in the bar/lounge area.

    After being greated we had to wait for menus as our waiter was also the bar tender and was quite busy. about 5 minutes later we got our menus and he took our drink orders.

    We then had to wait about 15 minutes for our waiter to take our orders, and bring our drinks over, as he forgot them after they were filled.
    The food took a reasonable amount of time to arrive, however the meals did not live up to the price they were on the menu. I ordered the newyork strip steak well done which when it arrived was more or less medium rare and didnt look like a newyork strip, more like a sirloin. it came with a garlic mashed potato in a potato skin, accompanied by half a small roasted tomato and small slice of roasted eggplant.

    I had expected a bit more substanial sides as they were small and not filling for the price i was paying.

    additionally the extremely long wait was irritating, as i shouldnt have to wait such a long time. i understand that if your busy you might take longer, but no acknoledgment of our presence was a bad sign... honesty is preferred, just say your busy or something and might take a bit longer then normal.

  • Order: iced tea, newyork strip steak dinner.

  • I stumbled accross Vic's Steakhouse last Friday and was more than happy I did. I was staying in the James Bay area for a week and was surprised that I hadn't heard of this gem from more people!
    We sat in the lounge and were served by a bartender who was charismatic and knowledgable. The service was prompt but not rushed, and we were treated to great music by a live band.

    I ordered the halibut, as I do not eat meat, and it was done perfectly. Very simple but flavourful at the same time. My companion ordered a steak and said it was one of the best he had experienced in Victoria so far! We shared a home made ice cream sandwich for dessert and at the end I was so full we ended up staying and enjoying the band for another cocktail.

    I would reccommend this restaurant to tourists and locals alike and will definitely return!

  • Order: Scallop appetizer, halibut entree and 8oz tenderloin entree, peanut butter banana ice cream sandwich, feature martinis, wine

  • I ordered the atichoke Hearts Salad, which I fully expected to be good, but nothing original. I was wrong. Paired with a glass of red wine, seated near the fire, I was surprised when the server came to my table with a beautifully plated salad. The hearts were kept mostly whole and only drizzled with roasted garlic dressing (small pools for dripping on each corner of the plate). It was topped with heatlhy shavings of havarti, two thinly sliced pieces of toasted bread - well seasoned, and one strip of crispy ham. I must confess that making little sandwiches out of the proscuitto, crouton, salad and cheese was an enjoyable experience, and was simply delicious. Nothing was over-done. The only complaint I have is that I ran out of proscuitto!

    In addition, the waiter brought over 2 pieces of fresh whole-grain bread with a selection of butters and what I believe was a mild pate - a sprig of sage finished up the serving and it too was very taste, and well prepared.

    The waitress was incredibly busy with a large table of business travellers but still did an excellent job of ensuring her small party of 2 (us!) was well serviced.

    I think this is a new restaurant, and although off the lobby of a hotel, provides an excellent eating experience. We will be back
