The Dining Room at Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa Ratings and Reviews
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.
The menu was sparse. I had the Sablefish, I had to send it back because it was not cooked through it was still awful, mushy and slimy when they returned it to me. The fingerling potatoes were cold and crunchy. No suitable dessert to celebrate my 65th Bday. Husband had the duck it was okay. Mussels appetizer so-so
This was in top 5 best dining experience for us ever. Everything from the appetizer, the main course through the dessert was fabulous. The wine we chose was perfect and reasonably priced. Ambience could not have been better. Just a perfect evening all way around. We will definitely be back!
We sat outdoors on an October evening - the retractable roof and heaters kept us totally comfy and our from away guests were very impressed. Food was delicious, wine was a huge hit. On a Monday night in October it was very quiet, which for us was great. The lack of background noise meant we could talk and really enjoy our evening.
The Dining Room serves wonderful local food, well-prepared and artfully presented. The setting is beautiful, overlooking Brentwood Bay. Service was friendly and attentive. We had the crispy sablefish and sushi. (There is a sushi chef who prepares creative takes on classic sushi). Both were excellent. Definitely a lovely place for a special evening out.
This is a beautiful room with views out over the diinng deck to Saanich Inlet. The service was spot on. Our waitress lowered the blinds just enough to shade our eyes from the setting sun but still allow us a stunning view.
The food was good and the presentation was lovely. My squid ink risotto was more like flavoured rice. We also had the sablefish which was perfectly cooked. A neighbouring table ordered the sushi which looked lovely in presentation.
Was looking forward to a gorgeous view & yummy drinks & food, however, after waiting 30 minutes our waiter completely ignored us. After asking him if he was our waiter replied, "I'm not sure, am I?" We asked, can we order a drink , as we've been waiting quite awhile. I also asked to speak to the manager. Several minutes later, the hostess came over & I let her know we'd been waiting now over half an hour to which she replied yes I remember you! Pointless conversation as this point. Now manager comes over & I reiterate my complaint, meanwhile still no drinks. 5 minutes later he comes back with our drinks & let's us know they will be comped. Great right,? Nope, worst drinks ever! Didn't even drink them! For 12$ drinks the bartenders need to step up their game! End rant! 😒
A sunny evening - perfect for sitting on the deck. We had an early reservation so it was very quiet. Service was attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the menu very much - creole shrimp appy, duck breast for hubby (ask for it to be on the rare side, was a little over done) and mushroom ravioli. Nice selection of desserts, with share-able options. Nice wine list, too. Great experience - we'll be back.
Very disappointing . Thought it would be very good but it was nothing special. Very limited menu. We have had much better food at a quarter of the price. We have never had a good dining experience at these corporation owed hotel/spa places however much you pay. The cost did not matter to us but some would object to paying $140 for two starters, two mains and two drinks, no desert and no wine! We should have known better.
Went for Brunch on Father's Day and unfortunately they were not staffed adequately. This is strange in that it was almost completely booked. Unfortunately service was extremely slow. Food was great as always as was the ambiance. Too bad about the lack of staff.
We were very disappointed with our most recent experience in The dining room. We have had great food there before so we thought it would be consistent. However, the linguini dish was okay (was not even linguini noodles), the steak was mediocre (could have gotten way better at the Keg), and one of us was even given the wrong food altogether. For the prices on the menu, we were expecting great food - but we were very disappointed.
We had a nice dinner at the Brentwood Lodge restaurant, but waited way too long for our appetizers. Our waitress seemed to be rather inexperienced, but we gave her the benefit of the doubt. The scenery there is lovely and it is especially nice this time of year because of the later sunsets and the potential to sit on the terrace. WE sat in the doorway because it was getting cool when we arrived at 7:15. The sushi was very interesting, but took way too long to receive. The specials for main courses were excellent, particularly the lamb. All in all a nice experience, but they really should have discounted our bill because we waited so long for our appetizer.
