Trip Advisor Review for the Bistro

"Farm to Table gem coupled with excellent service"

August 28, 2018

If one likes locally grown produce prepared in a manner that highlights the subtle flavours of the produce, this is the place.
The different types of tomatoes found on the sourdough bruschetta was highlight for me. Four of us also shared half a roast chicken, trout together with salad. The mixed fruit crumble had a tang to it. The crumble was well toasted, dry and not oily unlike any crumble I have tasted.

"10 out of 10 for 10 Acres Kitchen"

September 28, 2018

My husband and I had dinner at 10 Acres Kitchen during a recent stay in Victoria. We were drawn in by the smaller plate options. We had had a larger lunch so we were looking for a smaller dinner. We shared the Charcuterie for Two and the Melon Salad. Both were simply outstanding. The Melon Salad was thinly sliced pieces of melon with prosciutto and arugula and a light citrus dressing and toasted hazelnuts. It was so fresh and delicious. The Charcuterie board had a selection of meats, relishes, a liver pate and crostini. Again, so tasty and fresh. Highly recommend 10 Acres if you are in Victoria.

Review for the Kitchen

"Outstanding Food and Service"

Having visited Victoria for a number of years now, we make an effort to try new spots and this was well worth it. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, sommelier was great. Food is created with obvious care and passion. The entire night was fantastic. If this level of dining isn't desired, perhaps check out "the Commons" and the "10 acre's Cafe"...same owners and I'd assume same level of delivery. Amongst the best dining experiences in Victoria.

"Entire Experience Was Perfect"

March 2017

The idea of farm to plate is very appealing, and it raises your expectations when the fare has its entire journey under control of the same people. The 10 Acres Kitchen did not disappoint in the slightest. The food was perfect, really well presented, the portion size just right, and the staff were amazing. We went for a "BC" type experience, they suggested local wine to pair with the seafood we ordered and were always there whenever we needed anything. All bases were covered, we felt really well treated.

"What a great restaurant in the heart of Victoria!"

November 2016

Our waiter was absolutely fantastic! He was very attentive, engaging, kind, prompt, and helpful. I had the Salmon Wellington, whereas my partner had the chicken. They were so flavorful, succulent, and delicious. We savored every bite of what was on our plates. The oysters as well as the caesar salad were just great! The ambiance of the restaurant was also nice, especially for a night out with your loved one of a dear friend. I would not hesitate to return there if and when I visit Victoria again. Thanks for the wonderful dinner on our first night in town!

"My favorite place to eat in Victoria!"

July 2016

I am a fussy eater and always question the quality of food used. Not here!

I have entertained a large group as well as had a quiet dinner with friends here. The food is grown/raised on their own farm locally and you can tell that the chef is passionate about leaves the kitchen.

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

Yelp Review for the Bistro

"A warm greeting"

Really enjoyed this place. I was dining solo as was away for work and decided to give this place a shot. The staff was very friendly with a warm greeting at the front. From there I sat on the patio, which was so cozy and warm. You still felt a part of the theme of the restaurant. (Rustic/chic) I had the organic quinoa salad with chicken. It was very enjoyable and exactly what I felt like. I had started a new nutrition plan so it was hard to stay away from more tempting options. I was actually surprised how satisfied I was. This seemed like a great place to hang with friends or go for a date. Service was very good from start to finish.

Yelp Review for the Bistro

"The food was excellent and healthy"

The food was excellent and healthy. The service and ambiance were great. There's a fire place for rainy days and even a patio for sunny days. Everything seems to be made from local ingredients or their farm, which is amazing in this day and age. - Leah A.

Trip Advisor Review for the Bistro

"Fantastic patio!! Great food and service!"

This was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Victoria. There were 6 of us and we got a great table on the patio. Our server was excellent as was the food. Very flavourful and fresh! Chicken wings, pasta, steak... all good as was the desserts. Service was top notch also!

Trip Advisor Review for the Kitchen

We have been here twice now and everything has been perfect! Amazing food and drinks. The sushi, calamari, burgers, all exquisite and my favourite, The Best Clam Chowder that I have ever tasted!

"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...
