Great Tofino experience. Staff are fun. Loved the kale salad and I hate kale!

Everything here was great!! My husband and I shared the fish of the day which happened to be halibut and the most expensive dish, but DANG! I don't really eat a lot of fish but I was blown away! I will honestly say it was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten! Worth every penny! Cooked perfectly, buttery and beautiful sides of fiddle heads, asparagus, beets, carrots and scalloped potato squares! The kale salad was great as well, my husband enjoyed a fish fritter - not my flavour but he said it was great! Will definitely return next time we visit Tofino!!
My wife and I went to the Wolf and the Fog as part of our 25th wedding anniversary celebration. We ordered appetizers which were both amazing. We then did the share plate of Creole Sablefish with shrimp. I can truly say that is one of the best dishes I have ever had. The flavors were amazing and unlike anything I have ever tried before. The atmosphere was great, the waiter and waitress were both very knowledgeable and helpful. Voted the best New restaurant. My only wish is that it was closer to my house!
Great food and value

Best meal I've had in a very long time, excellent service, great locations
Heard the hype
We had read about this place and finally tried it on a family trip It was amazing! I had fois gras and duck which was close to perfect, attention to flavor and detail was obvious My husband had the salmon whichwas perfectly cooked
A special restaurant in a special place
Tofino is magical, and the magic continues inside Wolf in the Fog. The food is delicious and fun, the service is laid back but attentive, the ambiance is Tofitian. Go. Enjoy. Its the West Coast, unlike any other place on earth.
We were just on our honeymoon in Tofino and someone had recommended this restaurant. This was by far the best restaurant in Tofino. The potato encrusted oysters were to die for and the tuna absolutely amazing. This is the only restaurant we felt was worthy of going back to and we went to a lot of the places around the town, including the Pointe. Heartily recommend this place, either eating in the dining room or at the bar. Upstairs is a bit more lively and noisy than downstairs so take your pick. Can't go wrong with this place.
This restaurant lived up to its excellent reviews. We had made dinner reservations and were seated promptly upon arrival. Our server was excellent and provided menu details which were very helpful. We ordered their freshly baked bread to have with our wine. There were three kinds of bread with whipped butter, all of which were delicious. For our entrees, we both ordered their evening feature which was fresh halibut. It was baked to perfection and served along with a variety of vegetables which were not only delicious but presented beautifully. We didn't have room for dessert! We were more than happy with Wolf in the Fog.

Had a great experience. The food and service was everything we expected. We both had the salmon special and found that it was outstanding.
Looked like a very small place from the street. Has a dining room upstairs with a great view. Food was great. Looking forward to going back to Tofino. Thanks
Best in tofino
Fabulous ! Deep fried oyster was to die for. Reasonably priced restaurant for the amount and quality of food. Service, food, everything top notch. Wish there was a view as it is the only thing I can think they can improve upon.
Love Wolf in the Fog!
This was my third time at WINF. The menu is always different and interesting and the food is fantastic. If you like food that is interesting, delicious and NOT what you find everywhere else, then you will love it!
friendly spot, huge portions
The dress code ranged from "just done with a hike" outdoor gear, to jacket & tie (with jeans). First time dining here, and didn't realize they had a large upstairs space, which was packed. Very high ceiling, large bar, good beer & wine selection, huge portions, and very family friendly (for decently-behaved kids.)
GIVE MORE BOXES TO CHECK. That place is amazing!!!
The food is incredible, it seemed a little expensive at first, until the plates showed up and we found that what we were eating was created by God's own hands.

Outstanding menu at reasonable cost. We had the duck to share between two people. Delicious. We had enough for lunch today and even cold the leftovers were still great. Highly recommend.
Paradise in Tofino
We went for 3 days to Tofino and a highlight was our wonderful dinner at Wolf in the Fog. They were serving the first salmon catch of the season and it was the most delicious, juicy salmon I have ever tasted. I highly recommend Wolf and the Fog to anyone visiting Tofino. It is an incredibly delicious experience!
my creole ling cod and shrimp was one of the best entrees that I've ever had. Fish and crustacean perfectly cooked. Complex ingredients, but not too complex. My chocolate dessert was intense, just as I like it.
Awesome food, great staff
My husband wanted to make this special and the staff went out of their way to make it a wonderful evening. A special restaurant esp away out there in Tofino.
A wonderful view
Our evening started a little on the disappointing side. After booking over a month previously, when we got there, the only table left for us was with one seat facing a glaring, setting sun. Fortunately, with the cooperation of our neighbours table, and some readjustments, we were able to generally block the glare. That was the only fault in what was a truly memorable meal and experience. Our food was exquisite, the octopus entree, was succulent and well marinated. My pork belly was totally decadent. The pork melted in my my mouth and the crisp skin was such a tasty contrast. My wife and I look forward to our next time in Tofino and another meal at this superb restaurant.
I love Wolf in the Fog!
This is the reason I go to Tofino. The food is fantastic and service great. The fried potatoe oyster is a must try. Best restaurant in Tofino!
We had our anniversary dinner at Wolf in the Fog and we really enjoyed ourselves. Not only was our meal delicious, but everyone else's food looked great too! We had the 'block party' and the chicken was so tender. Not to mention their BBQ sauce was a yummy tangy delight! Very lively place with a great atmosphere. Surprisingly there were lots of small children but they were all well behaved and seemed to fit in (no runners or screamers lol). We would totally go back.
Ambitious menu superbly presented!
A totally great experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Wait staff were friendly and responsive. Will definitely return on my next trip to Tofino. Foodies in particular will love Wolf in the Fog. Definitely deserve to be in Canada's Top 100 Restaurants!
One of the top spots in Tofino
Lively spot with friendly attentive staff. Good solid food. The foie gras was superb, particularly the fig compote.
We enjoyed an incredibly scrumptious meal to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. The share plates, omg! Excellent service and ambiance, can't wait to go back.
Wonderful find-delivered a great experience!
Being visitors, we weren't certain where to eat but had heard a couple of good comments about Wolf in the Fog. We were more than pleasantly surprised. From the street there is nothing outstanding, but upon entering the restaurant it is immediately lively, fun, loud, and obviously a local favorite. Service was professional and just the right level of cheeky. She appeared to enjoy her job. Appies, mains, drinks and dessert - all excellent. This Little Piggy and hubby are looking forward to our next Tofino visit, and our next meal at Wolf in the Fog.
Great restaurant with good service.
We enjoyed our evening at wolf in the fog. Service was good and everyone was quite friendly with our kids. Food was quite salty but we enjoyed our time there nonetheless.
Don't miss it.
We had lunch at WITF about a year ago, but didn't have time to go back for dinner on that trip. This time, we made a point of going for dinner, and we weren't disappointed. Not only one of the best meals we've had in a long time, but one of the best values we've ever had as well. The upstairs dining room is a beautiful venue, the servers are cheerful and helpful, and the food is top tier. Among many standouts was the incredible pasta with tomato sauce and clams - a seemingly simple dish, but with a depth of flavour to the tomato sauce that I've rarely tasted. We're looking forward to going back the next time we're in the area.

Perfect service and suggestions that came together for an unforgettable meal. I cannot wait to return to Tofino, and Wolf in the Fog is a major part of that.
Tofino is very lucky to have such a great restaurant in its midst. Our meal was fantastic and great value. I thought the menu was interesting and their cocktails were incredible. Can't wait to go back in May!
Wolf in the Fog came highly recommended from friends and hotel staff alike. FULLY lived up to the hype. Heather, Ken, and Hailey provided excellent service and the food was spectacular. Great atmosphere, and an award-winning wine list. A must-do when in Tofino, you will not be disappointed!
A must on your Tofino trip!
Excellent meal.....perhaps a little too much Bok Choy on the tuna meal , but food good and would make it a definite stop on any trip to Tofino.
This is a fine-dining, yet casual restaurant in the heart of funky Tofino. The food combinations were unique and delicious, and anything could be customized to one's tastes. Our server, Erika, was fabulous! I would highly recommend the Wolf in the Fog!
A MUST for any visit to Tofino
The food was incredible, atmosphere great and portions really large. We loved it so much went went back the next night! Highly recommended.
Evening dinner 3/3/16
Visiting from Scotland this is my second time at this restaurant. As before great food and service, good vegetarian option. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Cocktails were Tasty! Would recommend a visit if in Tofino!
Another stellar dining experience
Our server, Germann was terrific - attentive and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding and great value. Our second time here and will definitely return.
Go here every time we are in Tofino. Never disappoints, from the delicious food, to the unique drinks to the young friendly, professional staff
The meal was great...the service was friendly and professional. The meal portions were substantial and fresh. The interior decor is a testament to the area and the name of the establishment. In all a wonderful dining experience. The menu was varied and the prices very reasonable.
The restaurant was fun, friendly and served yummy food. I thought the tables were jammed together which didn't give privacy. Not a romantic spot. I also thought the prices were very high for the bar type setting, lack of view, and it's ambience. Patricia Lanphear
