We ended up here for dinner on our one night in Ferndale because the only alternative was pizza and we weren't disappointed. Delicious food and fabulous service.

I would consider this an "upscale" restaurant for Ferndale. We didn't have reservations so they sat us in the bar area, totally okay with us. The service here was great, everyone always seems to have a smile on, a bit slow but they're were only three servers and one of them was also the bartender, we were not in a... More

I love dining at this restaurant! The food is as unique as it is flavorful, with delicious pairings of sweet and savory, an abundance of cheeses, both local and imported, and delicous sauces, chutney and marmalades to accompany every dish. The Baked Brie en Croute is my first choice for a starter, and I absolutely love the Chicken and Mushroom... More

The Victorian Inn is where I had to go to check into the motel that I was staying. While waiting for our rooms to be ready we had a few beers in the bar. The staff was very friendly. We later came back for dinner. The food was excellent. I had a chicken dish (photo below). Our rooms included breakfast,... More

Great food, bar, ambiance and pianist. The room decorated for fall, and server suggested local vodkas for martinis. Brandy was very knowledgeable and efficient and fun. I had their delicious chicken pot pie with truffle oil and my husband has wild grilled salmon. Their butterscotch pudding was THE BEST!!

My husband and I had the best meal at the Vi!! I ordered the yummy salmon dish and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the Paella and he said every bite was just a little bit of heaven. If you are in Ferndale make sure to book yourself a reservation at the Vi.
