Oak Bay Golf Club
Given we are still in the midst of Covid 19 outbreak I guess I should not have expected more but given the higher range of pricing I expected better service and ambience.
While the food for the most part was very good the service was less so mainly do to poorly trained staff as there was poor communication between them. The staff members themselves were pleasant and knowledgeable but menu's were limited and too many specials which had to be verbally given with no pricing. Also no desert menu was available or at least not provided and was again verbally listed without pricing. Lastly the addition of some large plants between tables would have helped as the rather large room with tables spaced wide apart gave more the impression of a warehouse rather than a higher end restaurant. That said I will come back and give the place a second chance as anyone can have a bad day.
Excellent food and great service. I will recommend this restaurant and we'll go back many times
Oak Bay restaurant provides a friendly, laid back dining experience with great views of the surrounding landscape. The food is excellent. I highly recommend it.
Fabulous food as usual
Good variety on the menu for both food and drink. Service was very good. Social distancing measures are in place and observed. We will go back.
We absolutely LOVED our dining experience and will definitely be back!!! Thank you!!!
The food at Oak Bay is very good - we’ve been there many times. Unfortunately due to a staff shortage, the last 2 times we’ve been there, they haven’t had pizza on the menu.
The restaurant was busy on Sunday night but we had reservations but service was the slowest we’ve ever experienced - it took 80 minutes to get our food after we placed our order.
The food was great - just a long time coming. Hope pizza comes back soon!
It was disappointing as they were out of so many things on the menu - no pizza - which is half of their menu, no veal, etc. The message was that it was the end of the season and they weren't buying all the items. No sure how they are going to get through to the end of October with very limited menu. It should have been stated on their website.
Anniversary dinner. The entire experience was wonderful. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us great advice. The food was excellent. We will certainly be returning in the near future.
The dining room was so cold we moved to an outdoor table. Think at price of meals, they could include a roll or be an option for a side salad. The night we were there you were out of Caesar salad, burgers, pizza and other items. This is my second time eating eating here this summer where half the menu was not available. Our service was very good.
Always look forward to eating there
My favourite place
Great food as normal . $1 per wine bottle for corkage . Although their selection is good . Live nearby so brought our Favourite wine . Waitress was very cheerful !
Second time here for dinner. It’s been such a good experience each time, fabulous food and a great setting We will definitely be back again
Great food and a beautiful venue!
Served a later arrival before us. Food was ok, but overpriced. Took over an hour to get food, ended up having them pack it up as a take out order and ate at home : ( Third strike and as a resident of the area, I’M DONE!
We look forward to going there at least once a week
Great Italian Food , ate here two nights in a row . We ate family style each night , sampled 8 or 9 dishes ( I know Covid , but all from same household ) so all food was awesome . Wine good , price range for all.
Ate inside one night and on patio next evening .
On your way to cottage ( going North ) on 400 get off at Port Severn 2nd exit then west 2km .
Social distancing and face masks enforced but polite about it . Very Safe Standards !
Waitress had great sense of humour , Saraaah Saraaah .
Spectacular View of Georgian Bay , 1st and 9th Holes .
We love it there. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food
The clubhouse has been consistently good since the beginning...the servers seem better this year in the speed of their service...the food is wonderful...
Great service, fantastic food. The Tirimisu dessert needs work. It’s not authentic. Make the real deal!
Lovely to be eating out on a patio again and Oak Bay did an excellent job adhering to all new safety requirements. Good work!
Wonderful anniversary dinner on the patio. Service was outstanding even wearing masks. I had the pickerel and they substituted easily spiralized veg instead of pasta. M husband had the schnitzel which he loved. Such a compliment as he is German. Finished off the meal with tiramisu Highly recommend those spot and so nice to get out during these crazy times
The food was nice, sound level medium to high even out on the patio, waitress busy but attentive.
Main issue was that we had a friend call in to pay for our meal because it was our 30th anniversary and the waitress said they could not do it because they were not set up to take payment that way. None of could understand because you can if you order takeout.
Also the Website needs to be updated saying that you are open for patio outdoor dinning.
The meals at the Oak Bay clubhouse are always outstanding. Chef Luigi and his staff are amazing...I always recommend the clubhouse to local, non residents.
Terra was a wonderful server! We enjoyed our time on the patio!
I enjoyed on my first visit, however due to the limited menu and lack of notice for such we were very displeased with our visit.
We were greeted warmly and the waitress was very friendly.
Great opportunity to network and share a meal
Excellent Thanksgiving Day dinner. Superb service. Relaxed quiet ambiance. Chef supreme!
Overall our experience was very good. This was the first time we went to this restaurant and we would likely go again. The food was very good. My only negative is that the noise level was very high.
We have been to Oak Bay Club for dinner many times over the past two years and have always thoroughly enjoyed it. This time I must admit we were disappointed in the food and felt the prices had increased quite a bit.
We had a reservation for 730pm. Arrived at 720pm. At just past 8pm we were still not seated. Waste of time and energy. Ruined our anniversary dinner. We ended up leaving starved and looking for another establishment to eat at. Highly disappointed.
This is not our first visit to Oak Bay Golf Club and it won't be our last. The restaurant has beautiful views of the golf course which just adds to the ambience.
The food came hot and each persons choice was a healthy portion and was rated as being excellent by all !!
This location is easy to find with lots of parking.
We are making this eatery one of our weekly date nights out going forward !
We love the restaurant at Oak Bay. The view is lovely and the staff very friendly.
When we arrived we were seated immediately. After that we were left alone and no serving staff or a manager would come to take our order. The place is fairly big and there seemed to be only one waitress running around to serve tables at the opposite end of the restaurant. After 25 minutes we just decided to leave. I suppose we could have tried to find the manager but at that time our mood to eat in this establishment was totally spoiled and we just wanted to leave and go to a different restaurant which we did.
For a higher end meal in the area it’s a good choice. Fair prices for what you get.
The meal was amazing from start to finish. As always Chef Luigi creates wonderful dishes full of flavour. Our server Camila was wonderful. She provided the perfect blend of attentiveness and made it a pleasure to dine here. Love it!
Food and service was excellent. The noise level was very high, it was hard to carry a conversation. Quality of food was great but maybe a little overpriced. We would dine here again.
Caesar salad dressing which I was told was made in house was some of the best I’ve ever had. Had the special fish and chips and the batter was done perfectly, didn’t pull away from fish and was not too greasy
We enjoyed the food but were surprised that a country club was lacking in the following.
I ordered veal parm..it was served with a carb but no veg.
My friend ordered lobster with linguine only to be told that there were no lobster forks available...apparently lobster fest just passed and they have not been found.. if this was the case..the lobster should have been removed and added to the pasta and not left intact to struggle with.
Also for about half of our meal the sun was shining directly from a window near to the ceiling ....we were told it will pass in 10 min..it would be better to put a blind up there.
So basically disappointed to experience this type of thing at this type of restaurant.
