We arrived around 6 today and were very pleased with our dinners. I ordered the "I'll Have What She is Having" and must say it was the best seafood dish I have had in years. Salmon, crab, scallops, prawns, clams, mussels in a wonderful tomato...More

Decor is amazing, seating is tight, line ups out the door.....but the service and food is worth the wait. I enjoyed the "salmon chanted evening". Delicious. Wild local sockeye with artichokes, avacado, capers, roasted red peppers, red onion, mixed greens with a creamy basil lemon...More

We were disappointed with our visit. The venue is poorly arranged and crowded. Servers were disorganized and a few seemed unhappy. My pasta dish was lacklustre and swimming in oil. We had scalding water splashed on to us from the bar ( just an accident,...More

We really appreciated the great service, as it can be difficult when someone is visibly disabled. We were famished, as the first restaurant we chose claimed to be accessible, but had stairs, and the second one humiliated my friend for being disabled. The food was...More

We were looking for a restaurant with live jazz entertainment and found this place. Not a large stage at the front of the restaurant against the window but enough for a small group to play at. We already had dinner so by the time we...More

Every year since I was in my 20s (1980) I have made it a tradition to go to Pagliacci's on Broad Street when in Victoria. I'm never disappointed and always entertained. This spot is a treat and I'm so happy that we were able to...More

Food was amazing. Place is very busy so if you are a large group you might have a wait. Staff were very friendly. Small space so it is very crowded.

Super busy social restaurant experience, sometimes live bands, good salads and lamb dishes, and one of the best cheesecakes I've ever had in my life.

In all the years I have been going to Pag's they have never taken reservations. 50 people would almost take over the entire place. Very tight sitting but comfortable. The menu hasn't really changed in years - and why... More
