The Mahoneys Review for the Commons

"Excellent for both lunch and dinner!!"

July 6, 2016

My husband and I had lunch on the outdoor patio and thoroughly enjoyed the oysters and cheese board. Cam was an enthusiastic server and updated us on the Commons farm and use of all local veggies, fruit and meats. We booked dinner for the next evening, and again, had a fabulous meal sharing many of the appetizers with both food and pairing recommendations from both Patrick and Adriano. A fabulous dining experience!!!

Maureen Review for the Kitchen

"A Favourite Spot in the City"

July 2016

We had dinner at the Kitchen for a special occasion on Saturday night. The meals were excellent; three of us ordered the halibut and my husband had a salad and the gnocchi which was outstanding. The vegetables from 10 Acres were superb, and the halibut was delicious. 10 Acres Bistro has long been one of our favourite spots in the city and we are now keen to try the Commons. Highly recommend any of the 10 Acres locations

Trip Advisor Review for the Kitchen

"Outstanding!! Seafood"

Great décor with fantastic service and more importantly our halibut and salmon wellington was outstanding.

"Simply the best meal I’ve EVER had in Victoria"

December 2015

Business dinner with our most important suppliers. Party of 10. We go for dinner twice per year, once here in Victoria and again in Vegas in the Spring. We have eaten some amazing meals in Vegas at places like Guy Savoy, American Fish and Estiatorio Milos. In Victoria we have often found ourselves at Il Terrazzo but a party of 10 can be tough to squeeze in, so we decided to try the newly renovated Pescatores. Glad we did... I've lived in Victoria for 25 years and have eaten everywhere during that time, only a few are still in business from when I arrived - this was a special surprise - simply put: The Kitchen at Pescatores is the BEST food and overall dining experience I've ever had in Greater Victoria...

Trip Advisor Review for the Commons

"Great seafood downtown"

December 2015

We ate in the lounge area. The seafood was fresh, fresh, fresh! I had the seafood pasta - I have never had squid so tender. My mom had the mussels/clams combo -- it was delicious. The bread that came to sop up the juice the mussels were cooked in was just the right kind of chewy. We had a great meal. Thank you!
