A broccoli soup that may possibly have had an entire cornbroom blended into it...picking bits of fibrous material out of every mouthful. This is not an exaggeration. The most fiber filled soup in history was remarkably delicious. The steak, was undercooked but I like rare,...More

After a long day of traveling, you don't need to leave your hotel to get an amazing meal. In fact, I wish I could have stayed longer, just for the food. The view at sunset was beautiful, the seafood was amazingly fresh, and the sushi...More

I was looking forward to a pleasant evening out with my hubby and was let down big time. We were out on the patio previously and it wasn't bust and were quite pleased with the service, food and atmosphere. Being inside was a definite negative...More

While the atmosphere and scenery at this restaurant drew us back for a third visit, for my daughter's birthday, I was extremely disappointed to discover they had swapped out their tasty menu for haute cuisine...almost nothing on the plates (unless you ordered the pasta), and...More

The food was great, but what really set it apart was our server, who on her own initiative went to check on the readiness of our room, and reported when it was available.More

Menu, food, service, setting - all excellent. Suggest you reserve a perimeter table as it can get pretty busy and noisy.

Thanks for the review, Hot Tours. You're right, we are very busy, even in the "off-season". We feel that's a good problem to have! Hope to welcome you back soon! Sincerely, Andrew

I ordered the Caesar salad for lunch. It was pricey at $15 ( chicken was an extra 7). The salad itself was wilted, brown and old. I was unable to finish it. The view was beautiful but I would not eat there again.

Description
Inspired by the inherent and intrinsic beauty of the Pacific North West, the Dining Room at Brentwood Bay stands unpretentious in its character. Willing to be both timelessly classic and ingenious in our creative process, we are here, quite simply, to celebrate. Ever searching for the soul that is within each element of the dish, we draw these essences together to create something entirely new, yet entirely familiar. In the same breath that we celebrate the truest nature of our ingredients, we celebrate the beauty that comes from finding authenticity within ourselves. With care and attention to who you are, we strive to create the experience that will align with you the most. We will dazzle, if you choose to be dazzled. We will educate, should you wish to be educated. We will serve you silently with barely a whisper, should you choose to spend the evening simply indulging in the company of your dining partners. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
