    Another great day for a brunch at the Alpine restaurant. My husband and I go to the Villa at least once a month from Nanaimo as it's our favourite place on the island. We were greeted by Jack, who is always so lovely every time we are there. He immediately greets and makes you feel like a welcomed guest We were able to enjoy brunch outside as the weather was gorgeous. We brought our friends with us from Nanaimo. It was such a treat for them. We enjoyed mimosas, brunch, dessert, sunshine, and the gorgeous view. Service is excellent here. Everyone is so friendly and the food is amazing. I highly recommend this island gem. I guarantee you'll be back

    Dinner was Excellent! Spectacular view! First serving of fresh baked bread was complimentary, extra bread $8. Told it would take a while as it's baked fresh - waited 10 mins -bread arrived and it was cold bread. Wine menu was outdated so prices not accurate. (Published $30 /10 oz, billed $32. ) Friendly service, not rushed, spent two hours, enjoyed great food and lovely ambience.

    Alpina Restaurant at Villa Eyrie ResortResponded 4 days agoWendyJimmy, an absolute pleasure to have the two of you up for Dinner on the Patio! Again, thank you for your patience for the Bread. Our apologies for the miscommunication on the bread though, our bread is a German Rye Sourdough with a hard crust and is baked daily, not to order, that's why it was only 10 minutes. The wine on the other hand... completely our fault. Next time you two are up, we shall make good on that mistake. I have made a note under your name so please book under that name.

    Our first night we ordered room service, our $45 entree was brought too us in a box with plastic utensils. A dinner plate and silverware would have been appreciated. It was delivered by a server who felt the need to tell us how aggravated he was by people wanting to come in for dinner without reservations. Then we went to the restaurant for breakfast, we made a reservation for 8:30am. We were completely ignored at the door for 15min. Many servers saw us and walked by but did not mention once that they would be with us soon. We finally received our breakfast almost an hour later, which was odd because there were hardly any guests in the place. We had to remind our server to bring us our drink which we finally received once our breakfast was almost done. We had to rush through our breakfast too get to our spa appointment, not a great way to start our experience. We ended up canceling our dinner reservations due to the unapologetic, poor service from those two experiences. Saying all that, the food was fantastic, just not 5star service, nothing that can’t be fixed though through some proper training and better management.

    The Pork Schnitzel was great, but the spätzle was cold. Mussels were perfectly cooked. The desserts looked great but were too full to try. Great German beers at good prices. The only thing disappointing is the wine prices that are marked up 300% Cheapest glass of red table wine is $30

    Unfortunately we were ignored and the waitress made sure to let us know we were left out. We waited for 1:40 h to have our food and 25 min for drinks. When the food arrived the meet was cold. We had great experience in the past and that’s why we chose Alpina to celebrate our 18 anniversary. I guess we are not coming back. So sad.

    I will not return to this restaurant. I took my 87 year old father for a Father's Day brunch and the event was ruined because of the incredibly poor service. It took 20 minutes for someone to acknowledge our presence after we were seated and another ten before our order was taken. Our food arrived 90 MINUTES after our reservation time. There was no explanation for why things were taking so long. No one asked if we wanted coffee or tea refills, I had to call someone over to do it after waiting 30 minutes. Others who arrived before us received their food before us, again, with zero explanation. There was no quality check after our food was served. We waited 20 minutes to get the bill and I ended up having to approach the staff at the register because we were being ignored. I understand they may have been a staff shortage. Then acknowledge it and apologize during the meal. I used to work in the industry and if we'd done this to a guest, we would have at least comped a meal. Will not return.

    We came on June 17. 2022 for lunch. When we got seated, we had this beautiful view right at the window. However, our server named Lori? (Blonde female) asked the host to reseat us to a table that was no longer a direct window view. She said loudly that there was a table coming here for a retirement party and that table was reserved for them. I was here for my birthday but I guess that was insignificant. There were many other tables that had great views (and were open) but she decided to remove us from our table after we were seated. Honestly that already set the mood for me. We decided to just order something quick so we could leave and go somewhere else. Food took very long (around 30-40 minutes?) and by the time we paid, the “reserved retirement party” table wasn’t even here yet. The food was pretty good, but the service I received was not it. I felt like I should have just ordered in room dining instead of coming in to the restuarant.

    Last yr the food and staff were amazing. Took my hubby for a early dads day, as he works on Father’s Day. Food was bland, service was poor, waitress was friendly but useless. Very sad as the view and ambience was lovely. Shocking that a high quality restaurant had food with no taste! Long drive very disappointed.

    Alpina Restaurant at Villa Eyrie ResortResponded on June 20, 2022Our apologies for not making your yearly trip memorable Mrs. B. I can assure you, that was not our intent... especially after such a long drive. If you ever have a problem with either Service or Food, and I speak for every restaurant in the world, PLEASE bring it to the attention of the Manager right away. We all strive to make every guests experience amazing, and when we fail, no one is happy. Unfortunately, we cannot fix things after the fact. PLEASE let us know immediately.

    I had a very good experience on my last two visits. The food was delicious and the service was very good So I went to lunch with my friends today, and the food was still delicious, but the service was not good. Our server kept failing to remember our orders and I had to go back and ask her again. My friends were disappointed, and I thought money was a waste. Next time, I hope to see a good server that I met on my first visit.

    The only negative comment I have is your online dinner reservation site is not easy to negotiate.I wanted to request a window sear but could not find a way to do it. For us elders who are not computer whizzes it’s difficult. Overall we enjoyed our dinner as always and would not hesitate to recommend the Villa Eyrie Restaurant.

    The Alpina restaurant at the Eyrie has beautiful views out over the ocean inlet. The food is wonderful and the variety is fantastic. We loved the charcuterie board. I was disappointed only that my first choice of dinner (mushroom ravioli) was not available but my rigatoni with beef was very tasty.

    Highs and lows dining here. Spectacular dining views and nice ambiance. $15 for a small loaf of semi burnt bread was not enjoyable. Spaghetti dish with the parmigiana cheese made it a little too dry (needed more white wine/olive oil). Drinks were high priced- mock tails are $9 and mainly ice. Flank steak dish was okay but for the cost, could have been a rib eye. For the $250 + cost of dining.for two, I have had tastier, better value meals.

    Another lovely dinner at Alpina where the view, the food and the impeccable service reinforced why they are one of our key go-to's for special occasions, hosting out of town guests or just making time on a no-reason evening for a fine meal.... Acknowledging my wife's birthday with complimentary "welcome" glass of champagne added to the evening!
