Victoria restaurants Summer '09

In a couple of weeks my partner and I are coming up from Tacoma, WA, for a weekend trip. Using this site and a copy of Eat magazine I've discovered some of the principal restos in town, but haven't been to Victoria in 5 years. We'll probably have only 2 dinners in town and would like one of them to be West Coast/fish, with the other being anything. I'd be glad for people's impressions. Since it's only two nights cost is not an issue, but I believe a restaurant doesn't have to be fancy to be great. A good Canadian wine list is a plus.

Zentri's--is it worth it? Seemed to be some disagreement in customer reviews on another site. Their website is classy but so minimal there's nothing to judge it by (no menu, no wine list).

If we go French, do we do Matisse or Brasserie L'Ecole? Both seem to get good reviews.

Blue Crab seems to have a fab location, but often a fab location and fab food don't go together. Would you go there? Got a better fish restaurant?

We'll have a car so a center city location is not a requirement.

Thanks in advance for advice!
