Q at The Empress
Q represents Queen and country, a nod to Queen Victoria, with a modern twist on royalty. A singular letter, for a very singular space.
Q at the Empress, located in the most storied room in Victoria, is a must-visit culinary experience. This atmospheric space has a fresh contemporary feel, all the while staying true to the building’s unique iconic heritage. Rich cherry wood ceilings and spectacularly detailed moldings honor the past, while the finishes bring a modern twist to the room.
The Pacific Northwest cuisine is based on regional ingredients, partnerships with local farmers and artisans, and utilizes our own chef’s herb and vegetable garden to ensure a fresh and unique meal. Our carefully curated menu features sustainably sourced seafood, traditionally raised meats and a wide variety of artisanal offerings. Meet our new Restaurant Chef, Juan Bochenski.
The wine list celebrates an excellent selection of the best of the Pacific Northwest and top vintages from around the globe. Take in the best views in the city on our harbour facing outdoor Veranda. From a romantic dinner to a vibrant social event all you need to do is just sit back, relax and enjoy the ambiance of Q at the Empress, the place to be on Vancouver Island.
