The dining experience at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel was excellent. The food was good - especially the gnocchi! And the service was courteous and prompt. The only problem was the water which was clearly unfiltered tap water.

Fabulous ocean view from the elegant dining room. I imagine dinner could be a dressy affair but we were OK in our fairly casual clothes at lunch. The eggs benedict were just right, there was a large selection of good wines and the wait staff were cheerful and attentive without being intrusive. Easy parking in the hotel underground garage.

We asked for a window table to avoid being in the middle of the room, so we could have a bit of a meeting, while we ate. The table and room were perfect. Waiter and meal were great, and allowed us to get our meeting accomplished. Thank you!

We had an amazing meal at the Dining Room. Our server Michael, was fantastic. He was very kind and helpful with suggestions and very knowledgable about the menu. The food was great. We really enjoyed the seared scallops. For mains we had the New York steak which was seasoned and cooked perfectly, as well as the Lingcod which was excellent both in conception and execution. The view is spectacular as is the entire Oak Bay Beach Hotel property. Thanks for a great and memorable meal!

A a quaint, cozy atmosphere. We are from Victoria, in our 70s and find it difficult to find somewhere quiet so that we can hear each other talk. We will certainly be telling our friends about this find. Our server, Michael, was very personable and was quite helpful for tourists. Will definitely return.

A special wedding anniversary. We were seated at the spot in the 30 seat dining room where I had requested. Our server, Michael was chatty and engaging. The service was attentive until the remsoning tables filled. I felt the level of attentiveness declined as the time for dessert arrived. We had an excessive wait time to the point that had we known this woukd occur we would not have ordered dessert and left with the memory of a very nice evening.

Scrumptious dinner. The tenderloin was perfectly spiced and beautifully presented. It included an ample sampling of several vegetables. Thankfully, I hadn't realized that fingerling potatoes would accompany the main. I ordered a side of the smashed garlic potatoes. Wow. Absolutely fabulous! Hubby had salmon and declared it to be perfectly prepared. We're going back tomorrow night.

My husband and I took his 80 year mother for dinner and had a great meal. The waitress was extremely patient with Mom. Dinner was very tasty and the desserts here are outstanding. Especially early on the dining room is great for conversation with the ambient noise level much lower than in most restaurants.

A quiet, tastefully appointed dining room with sea view. Our luncheon was delicious. Especially appreciated that there were no TVs or music. (In other locales, these distractions are intrusive). The servers were congenial and knowledgeable.
