After a long and trying day of negotiations, we picked the right restaurant to celebrate and unwind. We appreciated the calm drive and the very easy, close parking. We were greeted with big friendly smiles and shown to a table with a bay view and...More

If you are staying at the Brentwood Bay Resort, this is a great spot for breakfast. The menu is small, but just right!

Room is rather plain. Nice patio overlooking bay. Menu was good but not memorable. Tried their sushi menu and it was ok. Do not know why we expected more but we did. Staff is the best part of the experience. Found them to be attentive,...More

Captive audience if you are hungry. There are only a few options, and I'm not into hotdogs! The food was good although the prices were a bit steep. I figured they would be, given the nice location. Note that this is cafeteria style, but the...More

Hi Darren J, I'm not sure that you're reviewing the correct restaurant. We don't serve hot dogs in our Dining Room, and it isn't a cafeteria-style restaurant. We do hope that you join us the next time you're in the Victoria area! Thanks, Andrew

Went with a party to the Mothers' Day buffet, as we did last year. The buffet was fine but the price seemed to have increased a good deal. Will check first next time.More

Hi Yonze, Thanks for joining us for Mother's Day Brunch. We're glad that you enjoyed the food, and we hope you join us again next year. The price did increase, as we are seeing the cost of food increase dramatically on virtually a daily basis,...More

Description
Inspired by the inherent and intrinsic beauty of the Pacific North West, the Dining Room at Brentwood Bay stands unpretentious in its character. Willing to be both timelessly classic and ingenious in our creative process, we are here, quite simply, to celebrate. Ever searching for the soul that is within each element of the dish, we draw these essences together to create something entirely new, yet entirely familiar. In the same breath that we celebrate the truest nature of our ingredients, we celebrate the beauty that comes from finding authenticity within ourselves. With care and attention to who you are, we strive to create the experience that will align with you the most. We will dazzle, if you choose to be dazzled. We will educate, should you wish to be educated. We will serve you silently with barely a whisper, should you choose to spend the evening simply indulging in the company of your dining partners. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
