                  Our first experience at Unsworth was exceptional; this time was the opposite. As others had arrived before us, there was no record of our reservation. It took half an hour to get a glass of water. When food finally arrived, it was ice cold. Everyone can have an off night but it'll be a long while before we visit again.

                  Food was average, nothing special, a bit bland. This place was recommended to us, and we were underwhelmed.

                  It’s always a lovely experience at Unsworth Vineyard restaurant. Our most recent visit was as good as always. The service is consistently good, as is the food.

                  I made reservations for Easter Sunday over a month in advance. When we arrived from our long drive from Qualicum Beach, we were shown to our table on the far side with the fireplace in the corner. One of us facing a wall. We were the only people on that side of the restaurant for almost our meal. The other side of the restaurant was bright and sunny and we could hear people having a great time. Our side was dark and sad. Nothing indicated that it was Easter. No special dining options. No flowers on the tables. Nothing. Same menu, different day. My husband had the steak which was full of tendons and grizzle and I had the vegetarian burger option. It was crumbly and extremely dry. We opted to pass on the vast dessert menu. Not worth the drive. Sorry, but we will not be visiting again for sometime.

                  We were in a small room off the left side of the entry. It was very loud but we live in a rural area so we might be more sensitive to the noise level. The food was wonderful as always.

                  My friend and I see Unsworth Restaurant as our Go To. The location is lovely, the restaurant very cosy and attractive, the food just excellent and the wine is always a treat. We appreciate the knowledge and exceptional service from the wait staff.

                  We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, however I have two minor complaints. Our pasta dish was delicious, but very fatty. I don't like it when the waiter comes and clears individual plates when all the diners are not finished their meal. It feels rushed and calls attention to the person still eating. I realize this is standard protocal for many places though.

                  The restaurant is charming and cosy. The food was very good. On a previous visit we had ordered the sablefish and really enjoyed it. On this visit it was even better. Kendra, our server, provided friendly, helpful, professional service. We will certainly be returning.

                  The Valley has so much wonderful food to offer our meals were so very average and expensive. Disappointing.

                  Once again, we enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Unsworth! The "pasta" dishes are never a disappointment (along with the wine)

                  Food is great, wine exceptional. The service is slow due to prep times...you can count on 2.5 every time ..but food is worth it

                  My wife and I love this place. Menu is a bit limited in the winter months but the quality is excellent and the ambiance is great. Wait staff are awesome. We really like their white wines too.
