We loved having dinner in this restaurant located in historic Orcas Hotel. The menu has a good selection. We ordered stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, and then a steak for our entree, along with mac n cheese, Brussels sprouts.... and of course wine. The steak was cooked to perfection, and overall the meal was better than we expected. It was perfect for the two of us. Everything was very tasty, and we only wished we saved room for dessert. Our service was friendly, and there was a nice, relaxed ambience.

My family missed the ferry back to Anacortes, so we had no choice but to wait for the next one. We decided to have dinner at Octavia's. What a very pleasant surprise! The view over the harbor is beautiful. The food was nutritious and tasty. We enjoyed the grilled salmon, risotto, and turkey sandwich ordered from the cafe next door (subbing the waffle fries for a salad). They had one of my favorite Pinot Grigios (Duck Pond). Service was like "at home". What started as a disappointment turned into a highlight of the evening. I recommend Octavia's, not just for missed ferries! :)

Four of us went here for a weekday dinner. We had reservations, which got us a view table, but was otherwise not necessary. Prime rib special very good. Salmon not. Ribs good. Service very good.

We went to Octavia's in the Orcas Hotel for their Wednesday night special prime rib dinner. The dinner was good value at $26 and was well prepared. At 6:30 pm we were the only customers--one couple left as we arrived and three more came as we were finishing. Needless to say, we had attentive service--Pam was great. The view was nice, but it felt more like eating at home than "going out to dinner." We probably will not return even for a good prime rib dinner.

Overpriced overcooked and underwhelmed. Heard good things but we were very disappointed. The view was nice but the atmosphere was dark and dingy.
