We moved outside to be quieter-the view is stunning and the heater lamps kept us warm. It was a wonderful delicious dinner and our waitress brought us complimentary dessert wine from an island off Sicily, since it was our anniversary.

our Server Lola was a real pleasure, the food from the new menu was delicious, the wines as well, and the desserts, it was our anniversary, we live in the area and wanted to do something different special and memorable and it certainly was. we've already recommended Bella to friends.

The prices are high, and the eggs an opaque light yellow. Higher quality deep orange yolks would be preferable. The kind of eggs you get at local farms.

The server was nice, but the service wasn’t. The food quality was surprisingly UNACCEPTABLE, specifically the seafood pasta which over 50% of the mussels in our plate had super terrible smell. They were stink and obviously not fresh at all. We told our server when she came for her routine check, and a “Sorry” was ALL we got. The three of us spent about $200 in total and we felt the quality and value we received were not worth the price we paid. It was such a disappointing dinner on my wife’s birthday! :(

Well presented excellent food. Excellent friendly professional service from Madison. Our table (in the corner near the entrance ) was very draught and noisy from the slit like opening to the foyer. Why is the slit there? Despit that we had a very good meal and time.
Thank you.

Much confusion that we had made a reservation. We had a 7:15 reservation. Sat in the dinning area instead of the pub area, which was nice as it was fairly quiet so we could talk.
The waitress took along time to come give us any water - bread and take drink order. So we just sat there.
Our meals arrived in 15 mins or so which was fine only mine had just mashed potatoes with the steak plopped on top. Not to great for a $24 dollar meal. This was rib night and the ribs were ok on the first round for two of our guests, however the second half rack (apparently is wasn't all you can eat as advertised) was cold and had been sitting for a long time before served. Disappointing meals.
Waitress didn't come around much. Waitress got the bill wrong and charged our guests for one of our meals. (there were four of us)
Next day my husband had intestinal problems all day...

We would come back for a drink at pub but never will we eat again here....
We are sad to see such a wonderful resort with a very low class dinning experience.

Very friendly service. Our server was great. The food was also very good. Wines are a bit high priced. However this is a resort, so the prices are higher here. Worth trying if you are staying at the hotel.

Thank you for your feedback - we value it greatly. We do try to be mindful when selecting appropriate price points for the wine based on local business and Westin standards- we will definitely look into this. Hope to see you again Morgan Supervisor of Outlets

Risotto was quite dry. Service was awesome!
I don’t know why you have me down as Ted McGill. I reserved under Lisa.
Ted is my X husband. Perhaps he took a paramour there during our marriage as it was my first time.

Bella - Westin Bear Mountain Resort
Responded on March 28, 2019

Lisa, I am so sorry to hear about the risotto and I wish it would have been brought to managements attention. Next time let us know and we will happily remake or compensate for this, as we only strive for greatness. The system we use for reservations saves all reservations via email or phone number- so that may be why it registered under someone other than you. I apologize for that. Thank you for joining us and hope to see you again. Morgan Supervisor of Outlets

Bella was closed because of the weather but we did get a phone call from Julie ahead of time, letting us know Master’s Lounge would be open and the Bella menu would be available. We were celebrating our Anniversary and we love the ambiance at the Bear Mountain Westin.
Both of us ordered tenderloin medium rare - beautiful cuts were brought out - mine was cooked to rare and since I really wanted to enjoy it, I asked for it to be cooked a little more. When it did come back it was well done. A little disappointing but overall still a wonderful evening.

The noise from the Masters Lounge really ruined the quiet dinner we were hoping for. The food was okay but I wouldn’t say that the price matched the portion. While my au jus was much sweeter than any I had had before, my dinner mates fish was underseasoned. We ate breakfast as well that morning and I paid $7 for 2 pieces of toast while I paid for $5.50 for 6 peices of bacon. The prices were a bit unreasonable.

We arrived at 8 pm after viewing the holiday lights at Butchart Gardens, so we were still thoroughly chilled! We were warmly greeted and seated right by the fire. Our hostess and waiter were welcoming and friendly, and even though probably nearing the end of their shift, smiling and relaxed. We ordered the seafood chowder and the pear and endive salad. Both came out very quickly. We also decided to order the chateaubriand even though it would take 30 minutes to prepare. It was perfectly cooked to medium rare and cut like butter! No special knives needed! The mushroom medley it was accompanied by was delicious. We were out the door within about 70 minutes of arriving, perfect timing as we still had an hour and a half drive to home up-island. Next time, we will book a room and stay overnight!

The food was excellent. The website was misleading and did not make it clear that the $75 per person buffet was the only option. Our other choice for Christmas dinner and breakfast was the sports bar with a very limited menu. The manager was very accommodating and has special dishes made for us which we appreciated. Disappointed that the only bar had at least 5 sports screens on full-time. There was no music, even at Christmas. The meals were delicious but very expensive.
