Q at the Empress reopens at Victoria's Fairmont Empress Hotel


Victoria BC's Fairmont Empress is reopening its signature restaurant, Q at the Empress, for dinner service beginning October 1, 2021. As Victoria's most storied dining room, the hotel is welcoming back locals and visitors alike to enjoy Pacific Northwest inspired cuisine. 

Led by Executive Chef Morgan Wilson, Q at the Empress highlights the best of British Columbia's farmers and artisans -- utilizing locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. "The menu direction of Q at the Empress was developed with the goal to offer diners a creative approach to coastal fine dining," says Wilson. "Q is excited to reopen its doors."
