Victoria Recommendations

I've lived in Victoria for a few months now, and, in my experience, the reviews of eateries on Yelp and Urban Spoon are too positive for what I'm tasting, here. I'm hoping for some help, as I have a special guest joining me in a few weeks' time. I guess it is important to note that we are both from Toronto, and eat all over the world.

What I have liked:


What I have not been impressed with:

Brasserie L'Ecole

What I am looking for:

2 places to brunch (embracing food culture, local ingredients, licensed, please nothing dated)

2 dinners (one trendy, one higher end, local fish if possible)

What I am not looking for:

Tourist trap
Too composed
Too earthy

From my experience, this isn't an easy request. I do appreciate any help.
