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.

The rooms are nice but nowhere near the ocean.

The dining is horrible and we watched 20 plus people send their overpriced food back. The $30 risotto dish is a joke.

The food at the pub is good.

Staff are not very accomodating and were quite rude. Room was not ready until 4:30pm

Was overcharged $400 and it took 6 months to get a refund.

Maybe 2 stars but for sure not 5.

As local residents we looked forward to having a 4-star facility nearby; particularly to take visitors and show off Brentwood Bay. The location is excellent, as is the decor. Superb views, particularly at sunset.

We have been to the dining room on 3 occasions over the past year and unfortunately the quality has deteriorated dramatically. The food is now overpriced for what you get, and not well prepared. Perhaps this is the consequence of the oft changing theme (currently sushi). My mother had the crab ravioli and it was ghastly in appearance - large blobs of dough awash in what looked like a clear soup - I regret she did not comment on the lack of crab and it being tasteless other than salty until we drove her home.

We won't soon be back, if at all.

Worst dining experience I have had in a long time. Food was over priced to the extreme and almost inedible. I asked for my bill to be halfed for this reason, and also the couldn`t care less attitude from staff. A shame because this Inn has such a beautiful setting overlooking Brentwood Bay, but don`t let the view fool you. This one is to be avoided. Very Poor.

beautiful location. Food ok. Never a daily special...always the same old same old. Draught clean and bold. ..where I go for a good pour close to home. Great staff. Extensive wine list. Saturday nights during the summer enjoy the fireworks at Butchart Gardens in the background....very nice!
