CView Restaurant at the Qualicum Beach Inn
It was very noisy when we were there as the restaurant was full and there was a singer too. We could not hear the singer because of the noise. Our table for six was made up of three separate tables pushed together so we were a fair distance from each other which, added to the noise level, made it difficult to have a conversation between ourselves. There was a new menu and I had already looked at the menu online and chosen my meal but the site had not been updated so my choice was no longer available. The service was good and the food was also good. I probably won't return to this restaurant.
Excellent service with outstanding food! Highly recommend!
Food was good. We waited over an hour for our food and we had our 2 grand children with us. 2 tables that came in after us got their food way before we did. Had to wait and ask for a spoon to stir our coffee as none were supplied with the cream and sugar
Very disappointed in the length of time it took to get our food. Even when it came it was several minutes between dishes for the various people. Our table of 6 won’t be back as we will find somewhere else to meet our family for breakfast/brunch. What is worst we even made a reservation
The server was nice but overwhelmed.
Sorry we are not picky people and rarely give negative replies but the length of time we had to wait for our food was not acceptable
I drank 3 cups of coffee and 2 glasses of water waiting. The others who had tea were never given hot water refills.
You get a D- for our experience
Great location, easy to park, good access for elderly and wheelchairs. Great view. Lovely staff and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend.
CView never disappoints. The food, service, presentation, ambiance are always excellent and this was no exception.
This is the second time we have dined here and again we were not disappointed. Food was delicious, all four of us had a different dish and we all were very pleased. The bar manager is a sweetheart that makes a mean Manhattan! All the wait staff were terrific. Would definitely recommend it and will be returning ourselves next time we are in Qualicum Beach.
I was disappointed with the service it was poor. We were left waiting for our plates to be picked up . He was not very at tentative.
I really wish they would bring back the Brussel Sprouts and edamame beans too. They were excellent. Menu has gone more Pub like .
I love restaurant and go there a lot. It will be 3-4 times in the past 10days.
The Restaurant at Qualicum Beach Inn has great ambiance, good value for what you get
This restaurant is a favourite of ours, and they never disappoint. The food is excellent, and service prompt. The inside of the restaurant can get a bit loud, but outside is wonderful. And quite the view!
We were having breakfast mid morning so the restaurant was pretty quiet so enabled us to have a nice relaxing meal. Great food and the gentleman serving us was attentive and pleasant. We will be back.
Paul was our server and he was a great host. Cocktail and wine wonderful, as was the ravioli. But the seared tuna dish would have been better with a different side - the succotash and un-dressed arugula was a strange accompaniment and not very good.
My wife, daughter and a good friend celebrated an evening out together over good food and good wine. The service was top notch right from the reception, to our waitress and all the support staff. Very friendly and efficient. The food was delicious as was the wine and beer. We were probably quite loud. We laughed, ate, drank and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. What more can I say.
Our dinner was fabulous. It was truly a memorable night and we were ove r joyed with the waiters help finding the right wine. We LOVED it!
This is our favourite restaurant on Vancouver Island! Besides the food being great and nicely presented, the ambience is amazing, the glass balls on the wall and the big white fixtures above the banquettes make the room magical. We try to celebrate every special occasion here
Best meal I had while on the island!!
Butter Chicken was incredible!!
Our second visit and the ambience was just as nice as the first visit. Sadly, due to staff shortage, our wait for the table was long and the service was not as spot-on as before, which was no fault of the staff. The Tuna Bowl, the shortribs, and the pasta were all superb, as was the Grey Monk Pinot Gris. Must mention that all at the table noticed one bottle of the Pinot Gris served appeared to be short of wine. Odd, but we all observed this. We question if the bottle had been opened, some served, and then the capped bottle returned to the bar? Nonetheless, we will certainly return.
Food was awesome and so was the service! I would highly recommend it
Food took a long, long time to come. When it finally arrived, although my wife’s dish was hot and fresh, it was evident that my halibut had been sitting for a long time. Fish batter and fries were limp. Tartar sauce and coleslaw were as warm as the rest of the meal. Tasted good, I ate it, but disappointing.
Waitress was very pleasant but made no attempt to address the long wait.
It is a beautiful spot, will probably go back, but we were disappointed on this visit.
We love this restaurant! Good service, good food, good ambiance and beautiful sunsets!
Good atmosphere, hood food . Service was marginal. Our waiter seemed to be rushed and did not do the niceties such as water refills etc. They need more serve staff.
Management should have interceded with children of a family dining at the same time as us. The parents did not control their children. Dinner at8:00 pm shouldn’t include children running around the room.
Our waiter was unable to greet us and present menus. Another waiter had to get us water after he saw we were not getting served properly. Not impressed.
Our dinners were all amazing, waiter was fantastic, wonderful spot with a fabulous view.
Our only complaint was the noise level was quite bad but we enjoyed our meal immensely.
The food was terrible! I ordered the special which was prime rib. What showed up on my plate was not prime rib but some version of roast beef. To their credit, they didn't charge me for the meal. My wife ordered butter chicken which also was awful. Instead of being buttery, it consisted of a red pasty sauce. We will never go back to this place for dinner!!!!
The food is always outstanding, very fresh and innovative! Great ambiance and staff efficient and so friendly.
Overall the food was very good, the Ahi Tuna Bowl was very good as were the short ribs. The shrimp sandwich was disappointing and the soup special, creamy tomato basil, was almost not edible, way to thick and way to spicy would have been better on pasta. The view is outstanding and the decor is also very nice. Would go back but would avoid the two issues noted above.
The restaurant is beautiful with wonderful views. Unfortunately, there were a few issues with both food and service. Food - ordered curry chicken dish and advised server or tree nut allergy. All orders were taken and after appetizers were served and before we received our meals the server notified us that they could not guarantee no tree nuts in the dish ordered. She left a menu and did not come back for a long time to take the order for the alternate dish. Special of the day - lamb - was ordered at medium and questioned whether a shank or chops. Was advised at time of ordering that it was a chop (after server went to check) when it arrived it was overdone and VERY well done and it was a shank. Another meal had to be ordered and although it came quickly others had finished their meals. The server was very nice and polite and efficient however there were long waits between requests/questions.
Two of my guests ordered the salmon. They asked if they could split one entrée as the wife was really hot and suddenly not very hungry. While the server (and kitchen) were very accommodating, the salmon was unfortunately overcooked and very dry. As visitors from another country, they just didn't feel comfortable saying anything or sending it back. The remaining three of us were very happy with our food. We always enjoy the décor, the friendliness and the service by all staff.
It has gorgeous views of the beach and our server was nice but the food was very mediocre. My steak which was suppose to be medium rare was medium well and hard to eat and my husbands salmon was also over cooked. We definitely feel like for our anniversary dinner it was not a very good meal but did love the view and sunset.
Although the service was good, the food was over priced for what you get. We found the food "fine" at best, but definitely not good enough to return or recommend to anyone else.
Busy! Slow service this time.
The food was amazing and has improved substantially since my last visit. Despite being a very busy night, our server was efficient and friendly. The atmosphere and which included subtle live music was great and still allowed for conversation. A beautiful sunset over the ocean with dinner never hurts either, we’ll definitely be back!
everthing was great and Julie our Waitress was super
It took more than 1 hour to get our appetizers (soup and shrimp cocktail) and we waited another 45 minutes for our main course but we left before it arrived since we had been there for more than 2 hours. Nobody seemed to care since we were told repeatedly that our food was coming. It never came. Service was terrible and what ever food we had to as mediocre
Oh this is such a lovely place. We recommend it to everyone.
We shared the seafood Cobb Salad and Angus Burger. Both were very good. The restaurant was bright and roomy. Despite being the August long weekend, it wasn't busy. The disappointing part was that "Ocean-view" actually meant view of the ocean beyond the car park. Still, overall it was a pleasant experience and staff were nice.
My mother-in-law’s 90th and she thought the experience was exceptional
Fantastic food Douglas our server was very knowledgeable and made everyone there feel special
I shouldn't have to write a review. You saw that we were the last to leave the restaurant and that we're coming back tonight
Lovely evening out with family. The view was amazing and the food was delicious. The mussels are definitely a must and so is the Tuna Takagi. They were child friendly and had coloring and a kids menu. Live music outside. Creme brule for dessert was one of the best I've had.
