We have something in Common. We are part of the same community. The Commons is a place for you. Warm + welcoming with a locally inspired menu featuring sustainable seafood, organic produce from our farm and local spirits + craft brews.
The Ocean Wise symbol next to a menu item is assurance of an ocean-friendly choice. Learn more about sustainable seafood and download the free Ocean Wise App.
Blending a modern, comfortable aesthetic with vintage industrial, the Commons has bar and long table style seating for 120, plus a sun-drenched patio looking across at Victoria’s bustling Inner Harbour. Buck-a-Shuck oysters & daily drink features are just two of the reasons our Happy Hour was voted as one of the best in the city.
Meals are made for sharing at the Commons with choices like our Seafood, Skewer or Sushi platters or charcuterie board featuring our farm raised cured meats and pickled 10 Acres farm vegetables. Check out our seasonally focused lunch or dinner menu, happy hour and late night offerings.
We are a walk-in friendly establishment. Reservations accepted for groups of 8 or more. Call 250.940.0735 to discuss group and party reservations.
The restaurant uses a “Wait list” which doesn’t require you to stand in line for a table once you have checked in. Call when you are on your way and we’ll gladly add you to our list. Our hostess will notify you when your table is ready by text message when your table becomes available.
The Commons is the perfect downtown restaurant for large groups with generous sharing platters, tacos, sushi, creative cocktails and local craft beer on tap.
