Beautiful venue! Ambiance, service and food were all outstanding. The flight was paired perfectly to our tea. Will certainly be back again.
High Tea with my wife. A great success! Excellent waitress. We'll be back.
Great opportunity to share the experience with our family - thanks to Jason - our server
The ambiance can't be beat! We didn't feel rushed at all so the experience was very relaxing. The food was delicious and like most High Teas was a bit on the pricey side. However we left full and satisfied!
It is always a treat to have afternoon tea at the Butchart Gardens' Dining Room. The scones and savouries are really delicious, the sandwiches are real tea sandwiches, the desserts are pretty and quite tasty, and the selection of teas is interesting.
A delightful way to enjoy a meal while at Butchart Gardens. We did the high tea in October; high tea in the dining room is only available in the Fall and Winter, and made reservations. The dining room is very quaint and is in what used to be the Butchart residence. While there were a few men there, high tea is probably appreciated more by women. This was my first time to go in October, and while there were a lot of people roaming the gardens, it was nothing like the huge crowds during the summer. Lots of flowers were still out and the Fall colors were beautiful.
We always look forward to our high Tea outings at Butchart Gardens. The menu changes with the seasons and always offers freshly prepared treats. A walk around the gardens finishes off a lovely afternoon.
Went for high tea; it was fabulous. Highly recommend!
Food was mediocre as well as the service. Ambiance is beautiful. Price waaaay too expensive for what you get. Better as a light bite to sit and relax and just share one tea service for two people and can order just another pot of tea.
even thought I got appointment before two days . I asked them to arrange good seat for us because that is my birthday and I hope the seat is closed the window. However, they arranged nothing as same as common who were just coming
My friends and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the high tea set but because the heater was broken (according the the very nice lady helped our table), the whole time spend in the dining room was uncomfortably warm and hot, which really effect our appetite........ had to wrap the foods up and finish at home. Otherwise would enjoyed better!
The food was delicious.
The tea is a good value and the ambiance is gracious,relaxed and elegant, an unusual combination to achieve. Situated in the heart of a world class garden, this is how you should complete your tour of the grounds. Some might say that having to pay the gardens entry fee and then the cost of the tea is too much but I would argue that, in combination, this tea is less expensive and is a MUCH better value than tea at the Empress when delivering that Vancouver Island experience.
We had the tea which included lots of cakes and savory items. Very good experience
This was a return visit to Butchard Gardens after 51 years - we visited the gardens on our honeymoon! Having lunch in the lovely garden room of the house made the day extra special for us - leaving us with many wonderful memories.
If you're looking for British afternoon tea this is a very good place to find it.
We had afternoon tea after seeing the gardens. We ate outside and were offered a blanket if we got too chilly. Everything was so lovely and the food and tea was flavorful and delicious.
We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea outside on the terrace with a beautiful garden view.
Came all the way from Perth Australia as this was on my Bucket List. TICK
Nice romantic experience in a beautiful setting. The food is what one would expect of a British tea - finger sandwiches, sweets and of course a good choice of tea. The pace is good and the setting fantastic.
The service level and distinguished atmosphere makes the Dining Room at Butchart Gardens a perfect spot to have brunch or Authentic Afternoon Tea in the most beautiful and tranquil restaurant situated in a garden setting.
Lovely setting & nice High Tea. Recommend & I would enjoy coming back.
We paid a visit to Butchart Gardens and had a wonderful afternoon Tea to celebrate my wife's Birthday whilst we were in Canada. What a wonderful afternoon. I cannot say enough about it except when you are at the Gardens have the Afternoon tea you will NOT be disappointed
We love to have high tea at The Butchart Gardens, especially with the wine flutes!
It was really nice.
I went to there for lunch.
We odered afternoon tea and pasta.
We had a good time.
I brought my mom to Victoria for our annual mother-daughter getaway. High tea was the special occasion on the trip and it was simply excellent. Service was great, the food was splendid and the views unparalleled.
My daughter and I went for afternoon tea. The location was lovely, and the service was fine, but to be honest, I was disappointed by the food, especially the savouries. Also, we were seated next to a large party from a tour group, and it was quite noisy.
It was a delightful tea in an absolutely beautiful setting. I would highly recommend.
The perfect date night. A casual stroll around the gardens and then a long, delectable meal from a unique menu, with outstanding service, in a gorgeous room overlooking the Italian garden, made for a relaxed, romantic evening.
Afternoon tea was excellent. Staff was very attentive. Perfect setting.
We loved dining here after taking in the gardens! The view was amazing and the food was wonderful as well! Would definitely come back!
We were lucky to get an outdoor table overlooking the gardens, although inside seating looked very pleasant. The food and service were excellent. The wine list included a selection of whites and reds from Okanagan region. It was an enjoyable evening!
Special place to have dinner...food was amazing...actually , everything was amazing!
My wife and I had the Afternoon Tea. We were quite dissappointed at the food compare to others.
We absolutely loved having lunch at Butchart Gardens - seeing the gardens from our table on the veranda was a special treat and the food was remarkably good. So were the cocktails! Loved it!
Great experience as always. A bit pricy but the atmosphere is very pleasant and staff is nice. They have gluten free option for afternoon tea. Just have to notify in advance.
The fish was horrible, the food took nearly an hour and a half to be served, such a disappointment! Never coming here again not recommending it to anyone
While the Butchart Gardens is a world class venue, the restaurant at the former home of Jennie Butchart is a welcoming setting with professional staff and a limited, but excellent menu. The Okanagan wines are superb and the menu selections are varied enough to suit a wide variety of tastes and all are cooked to perfection. It is always a very full house and reservations should be made well in advance. A nice cap to a visit to these beautiful gardens.
A lovely evening overlooking the gardens at the end of a busy day. We had a chance to wander the gardens first for about an hour without the usual crowds which was very special. My only problem was with the booking. Open Table kept losing its internet server contact. So I called the restaurant directly. The hostess said there was no availability at the time we wanted despite the website saying there was. I went back on the website and the time was still available. Shouldn't have been so difficult to make a booking.
Exquisite food and quite elegant! The staff is most kind and very polite. Our dinner was delightful, the experience is one we shall hold in our memory for a life time! Thank you!
