We went to the lodge dinning room for Valentine's day. Previously we had only eaten sushi in the dinning room and various meals from the pub. They had a special menu on and I hope they plan to keep the scallops on their regular menu. The entire meal was fantastic we both enjoyed every bite of every course. The server made you feel like you were dinning in an upscale place but with comfort.

Both the Brentwood Bay restaurant and the pub are fabulous places to dine. The view is lovely and the deck is a nice option in the summer. The food is delicious at both restaurants and the pub has live music some nights. Highly recommended!

We will be back for sure. Perhaps in the summer when we can enjoy the view in the evening. Lots of parking - a nice way to start. The staff was lovely from the moment we arrived. Server was very professional and friendly. The food was very good and portion sizes were not disappointing. We were there with a Groupon. We have only used a few groupons in the past but have noticed they can be a bit awkward sometimes which can be off-putting. Not so.
Our server seemed excited that we were there to try things out, noting that most of the diners in the room were also enjoying the groupon meal that night. All around, a great evening.

We used our Groupon for the Chef’s Tasting Menu. Such a great deal. Food was good, I would give 7.5/10 - no complaints, just weren’t “wowed.” Service was EXCELLENT, and ambiance was very nice - dim light and cozy. Great spot for an evening date, and we would like to go back and see it in the daylight in the future!

This is definitely NOT a place for quiet conversation. It seems these days the "hip" crowd want noise and not a quiet romantic dinner setting. I guess I'm just too old to "get it". The food was great. The server was very good until it came time for the bill. The bill was VERY confusing as we had the groupon tasting menu special and it didn't make any sense. The server sorted it out to my complete satisfaction but it took far too long to do so. Needs a better computer program!!!!
I'd love to go more often but I'm afraid if they can't turn down the inappropriate background music and ambient noise level it won't be a priority. I can get great food at half the price at a good pub like he Prairie Inn.

Used a Groupon - separate menu - not even a little impressed. Felt cheated. Nothing on the Groupon menu came from the dining menu. Groupon meal was non-descript, soup was stingy & not great, dessert was pathetic tough-crusted tart that came with a tiny spoon that was impossible to cut the crust with. Will never go back.

I wish I were able to give a better review. We dined at the restaurant 2 years ago and had a lovely evening.

4 of us dined at the restaurant using a Groupon and had the chef's menu. I mention this because even with the great value of the Groupon, we left thinking that it might not be worth coming back.

On the plus side, the hostess and our server was very pleasant. Our mains were very tasty. One of us had the soup, and said it was quite good.

On the negative side, the beet and goat cheese salad arrived without the beets. The dining room was busy, so we didn't get a chance to ask our server about this until after we had finished. The bread was bland. And the desserts weren't very flavourful and tasted like they came from outside of the restaurant. And while our server was lovely, she seemed very busy and may have been too quick to clear some of the plates when she did come to the table.

I sent an email to the hotel that evening with the above points and didn't hear back.

We'd love to love this place. We didn't. That's too bad.

UPDATE: I received a very sincere note from the restaurant management thanking me for my email and acknowledging where things could have been better. I appreciate the response and I suppose every place is entitled to an off-evening.

Lovely to spend an evening with family to celebrate life! Server was very personable & the food was excellent. Would only suggest that the carrot & brussel sprouts be cooked a little longer so it doesn't slip when you stick your fork into it. Otherwise, very creative plating, lovely atmosphere, especially beside the fireplace. Intimate enough that you can have a private conversation.

We were seated at about 7:15, ordered our food about 15 minutes later and it was about another 30 minutes before our appetizer arrived. We ate two baskets of bread whilst waiting and had to ask for it both times. Our entrees didn’t arrive until after 9:00, about two full hours after we were seated. By the time the food arrived my wife had lost her appetite and had little interest in eating given the late hour. We asked for our desserts to take away. Our server was pleasant enough and told us the kitchen was short-staffed. This marathon meal was unfortunate given our excellent experiences dining here in the past. But we will not be returning for our anniversary dinner next year.

The food was excellent, especially the kale fricassee. It was supposed to be kale and mushroom but I am allergic to mushrooms and they were very good about accommodating my allergies. The lamb sirloin was done perfectly and the confit potato was delicious. Server was friendly, attentive, and helpful. The dining room is beautiful and the view, even on a dark, rainy night, was lovely.

My wife and I visit Brentwood frequently, due to the great views and atmosphere, incredible service, and equally incredible food.

Though the service was a little off and a little confused this time (slow service and 2 servers trying to take our orders, one poorly over-explaining the menu to us) the food was its usual amazing. The beef short rib was the best I have ever had, and my wife's char was beyond compare.

If you need a mini getaway, pair a Brentwood Spa massage with a Brentwood dinner, and all will be well :)

Took my wife for our 20th, expecting a nice dinner meal based on Yelp's reviews.  Not sure where the previous reviewers ate but we both experienced a poorly prepared dinner.  The "shared" mushroom pate was nothing but some bits of mushroom mixed in with cream cheese.  Steaks were chewy, served with undercook potatoes and burnt greens - obviously the water in the steamer boiled off.   We have eaten in many establishments around the world, experienced various venues but what this restaurant portends to be is not what you get.  Pretty expensive for what we got.
