This is a small owner/chef restaurant. The bisque is apparently their signature dish, hence the name. It was written up in some detail on the menu. We arrived for lunch and I considered their soup and sandwich special. Curious about their bisque, I asked if it was available as the "soup". The server explained it was not available with the...

We had this place on our list to visit, so when we came across while on a walk we stopped in for late lunch. Yum. We will be back for dinner as the food is really good.

Second visit and we have confirmed there will absolutely be more. The food is exceptional. The presentation first quality and the service is first class. Bisque will definitely be included in any future excursions to the Comox Valley.

I am from Montreal and Bisque would give many good restaurants in my city a serious run for their money, and that is saying something. The menu is small but that is their secret to success—what they do well, they do extremely well. All the seafood was excellent: Mussels with bisque soup and the sole with shrimp were served hot...

We hosted our intimate wedding dinner at our home and the wedding meal was catered by Bisque - what a fantastic job they did. We had a friend pick up everything at the restaurant by 6 pm and we sat down to a hot, delicious meal at 7.30. They packaged all the meal's contents well in to go containers and... More

This was our first time visiting this restaurant. It was a very quiet the night. The service was excellent. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. Our food arrived in a timely fashion. We did not feel rushed. I ordered the special which was snapper. My husband ordered the schnitzel. The food was delicious and plenty of it. We were... More

Have heard that Bisque is a "must try" restaurant for a long time, despite their somewhat "strip mall" location. The restaurant is small, however they stagger their reservations so the one server (at least when we were there) can manage the room effectively and the kitchen and plate meals in a timely manner. Food was excellent. We had the escargot/spinach... More

Had a late lunch, and chose Bisque because of its high Tripadvisor rating. The place is lovely, small and quaint. Daily specials were on the front board, and luckily we were able to get one of the specials still, as it was late. Service was great. The Seafood stuffed sole was very good. The spinach salad with a chicken breast... More
