The Courtney Room - best restaurants downtown Victoria - Victoria Restaurant

Taking cues from the old grand dame hotels of Paris, Sharon Bortolotto of BBA Design was inspired by the classic French bistro. The Courtney Room boasts high ceilings, and is layered with elements of Art Nouveau to create a casually elegant ambience. Focal features include commissioned artwork by Blu Smith in an abstract expressionist style and a central black granite bar framed between two paneled wood columns with white marble chevron detail – a place to gather and be seen.

Enter the brasserie, with banquette seating, high-top tables and gray marble bar with glass oyster station. Enjoy a business lunch or elegant brunch, a lively happy hour or casual dinner with friends.

Upstairs at The Courtney Room provides an elevated dining experience in a carpeted space with white Frette tablecloths and a glassed-in wine room. Open for dinner, enjoy fresh seafood and house dry-aged steak, or take a tasting journey with the Chef’s Tasting Menu. The dining room is available for small groups for breakfast or lunch.

Reservations are recommended.
