Nice food for after golf meal. Had the seafood pasta special. Huge shrimps! Sat out on the patio and enjoyed the view. Very nice
Excellent meals for our table of 4. Our 6:00 seating was perfect before the rush of other guests. Staff were very friendly and courteous! Thank you!
What a gem!!!! My friend and I had a wonderful lunch on the deck overlooking the water and the golf course. Perfect. The service was tremendous and I would highly recommend Oak Bay for dining.
I attended a wedding in early August at the Oak Bay Golf Club - a small event held outside with a reception on the deck. The food and service could not have been better. Perfect location for a wedding.
We had to wait on arrival, servers swanned past us but no one really helped us. Eventually we were acknowledged.
Service was decent, the food was just ok and there was no ambiance
My kids took my husband and I for dinner for our 35th anniversary. We have been many times. In fact I gave an excellent review 2 weeks ago.
Unfortunately our experience this time was less than great from the get go. Our drinks sat made on the bar for the duration of our server taking orders at another table for 10. We actually were going to get the tray of drinks ourselves as the ice had melted they sat so long. Not sure why the bartender didn’t just walk them over. Our entres were served before we could ask for wine with our dinner.
I found a hair in me entre. I did not mention it until she asked if I wanted a container to take home. I did not want to embarrass my son who was paying. I told our server I didn’t want to take home and the reason I didn’t eat anything was that I found a hair in my food. I was trying to be discrete. She was more interested in asking me what colour it was, was it short or long, dark or light. I was trying not to make a big deal of it I just thought she should know. She said she would mention it to the kitchen staff and that was the last I heard.
As my son was overhearing me tell her, when she walked away he proceeded to tell me he had found a hair in our appetizer. He didn’t tell me because he knows I can’t continue to eat if a hair is found.
The pizza we ordered came without prosciutto that was ordered. We also let that go without saying anything. Three of us had pasta and were told there was no cheese for the pasta. That was strange!
The restaurant was not overly busy so the lack of service could not be blamed on that. We are very patient with servers during these times as we know there is an issue with getting staff and training them.
Unfortunately I felt bad as my son was looking forward to treating us.
Had an awesome dinner tonite
Better experience and service since our last visit
Tyler was an awesome server
Everything was on point
Best Creme Brûlée I have ever had
We were seated outside which was nice and our server did his best but it took 2 hours to get 4 pizzas. One came without cheese and the Canadian came covered in canned mushrooms and peppers making it very soggy. They are not accommodating when it comes to substitutions.
Food and service was very good. The location is outstanding. The wine list is short on better quality white wines. The wine list needs a good Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay for a special evening dinner. The Red wine list does have some higher end offerings if you want one.
Went there for the 1st time. Family was really looking forward to it as it was a new restaurant for us to try in the area. Well the experience fell quite short of our expectations.
1) the venue….while the restaurant is beautiful, we were seated outside on the patio and it appeared that it had not been cleaned in a while. There were dead flies/ bugs everywhere… the railings, exterior lights and walls. In my opinion since this is an eating establishment, it should be power washed every morning.
2) My children had intended to order the pizza as there was quite a selection of different kinds of pizza on the menu. We were disappointed to learn that no pizza was being offered that evening as the ‘person’ who cooked the pizzas was not in that evening.
3) I had ordered the salmon with a crust on it. As I started to eat it, it was fantastic until I got to the middle where it was cold and not fully cooked. When I got my half salmon back after it was re-cooked on another plate w some salad, it just did not look appetizing nor was it still fully cooked.
4) While our waiter was very polite and kind, it seemed as if they were short staffed that evening. We had to wait a while for our initial drinks and subsequent requests.
While we had high expectations for our first time at Oak Bay, as we have a number of friends who speak very highly of the venue and restaurant, we left with nothing but disappointment and regret.
Awesome service and food
Good pasta dinners
Chef not accommodating.. would not substitute vegetables for side pastas that came with meal. (Main course did not come with vegetables or salad).
Pickerel was cooked to perfection!
Pasta flavoursome also but with both having the same tomatoes sauce, there wasn't enough palate variety.
We had a great meal. Tyler our server was awesome!
Slow service and noisy patrons at nearby table, but great food
Unfortunately, we didn't get the inside corner table we had requested in our reservation. While our server was pleasant, we did not get any follow-up after delivery of the food. Had to request soup spoons ( spagetti ) and pepper for both the app and main courses. While not a disappointment, we've had much better service in the past, so we were expecting more professionalism. The food is still delicious and plentiful.
A night out of cooking at the cottage and escape the humidity ,lol. ( We ate inside although there nice patio tables were available golf course and Georgian Bay )
My wife and I were treated very well by Emma our server . She was attentive and very pleasant .
The Kitchen as usual , “knocked it out of the park” with quality and quantity! Haven’t been to a restaurant in The City ( Toronto) that can match the quality and value . Good wine selection , we ordered off the menu but you can bring your own bottle if you like .
I don’t ever want to take this place for granted . Great Job Everybody !
Great service. Large portions. Good time.
Outstanding spot for lunch or dinner. Beautiful view just too bad part of it is a trailer park.
The work around the clubhouse is mostly complete now which is a big improvement over past years.
I had pickerel and my wife had a salmon special. Both very good.
Wine list could be better.
Fabulous as always and our server Kate was amazing!
Service and employees are excellent! The appetizers are good but the mains aren’t very good (especially the tomato sauce). They also have no cheese to put on your pasta for all of the cheese lovers out there. Chicken was a bit flavourless and dry. Overpriced for the quality of food they serve. Nice view of the golf course though!
Very much enjoyed the evening. Beautiful spot and we enjoyed the food and the friendly service.
Very happy to be able to dine out again. The staff were very professional, careful, and practiced Covid cleanliness at all times.
Everything was great except for veal was just ok.
The food was better this visit but service was terrible. We made a reservation for 7pm and arrived a few minutes before. We wanted while they cleaned a table for us which was fine. They sat us and said someone will be right with you. 20 minutes went by with people passing us multiple times. No glasses for our bottle of wine, we almost left. We really try to keep supporting your business but your wait staff need a training program to provide better service. Things like greet every customer within 2 minutes as a server. If you can't get take their order right away at least say hello, and say I'll be right back. If you walk past a table empty handed grab a plate on your way by even if it's not your table. It also seemed like the servers didn't have sections but were relying on alternating who got the next table and they didn't know whose turn it was. Assign sections so they know their tables, leave it to the hostess to keep track of alternating which section they sat last. You need trainable systems.
Patio dining great view helpful friendly staff and a great chef makes for a wonderful meal and a lovely experience check it out hands down best in the area by far
Food was ok.
Ate outside on the patio. Great experience was a bit windy so we’re lucky that we were on the backside of the building. Food was fabulous. Service great even though they are a bit short staffed they are doing their best. We were quite satisfied. Grilled calamari was different. Not what we expected but delicious just the same. Almost a calamari pancake not your typical ringlets for full grilled ringlets.
Food was great - service was great. Was so great to be back out in civilization!
Good food and service.
Reservation system didn't work. Hostess and manager not friendly or accommodating. Server was excellent. Food was good, but better in previous years. Pricey , and offered no bread with pasta dishes. Were out of parmesan cheese despite grocery store being 15 mins away. Great atmosphere.
Very unhappy with the experience here, yet again. I’ve dined twice before and thought I’d give it one more shot. Well what a mistake. Our server, Amy, was fabulous. But that was about it. The food was flavourless and bland and the kitchen didn’t seem to care about our complaints. Sangria was good but DO NOT order an espresso martini. We asked for them to be taken off our bill but the bartender refused. We did not drink them as they were basically made with Baileys in a martini glass. It was 100% not the correct way to make an espresso martini.
I will not be returning, which is unfortunate being so local to the restaurant.
I don’t recommend wasting your money here, go to the Rawley Resort Lighthouse Restaurant instead.
Everything for the evening was ask the service was superb
Loved the outdoor patio and sunset views for dinner. Servers were polite and prompt. Food presentation was very good. We're looking forward to dining here again soon!
Always an enjoyable evening with terrific wait staff and excellent food.
Given we are still in the midst of Covid 19 outbreak I guess I should not have expected more but given the higher range of pricing I expected better service and ambience.
While the food for the most part was very good the service was less so mainly do to poorly trained staff as there was poor communication between them. The staff members themselves were pleasant and knowledgeable but menu's were limited and too many specials which had to be verbally given with no pricing. Also no desert menu was available or at least not provided and was again verbally listed without pricing. Lastly the addition of some large plants between tables would have helped as the rather large room with tables spaced wide apart gave more the impression of a warehouse rather than a higher end restaurant. That said I will come back and give the place a second chance as anyone can have a bad day.
Excellent food and great service. I will recommend this restaurant and we'll go back many times
Oak Bay restaurant provides a friendly, laid back dining experience with great views of the surrounding landscape. The food is excellent. I highly recommend it.
Fabulous food as usual
Good variety on the menu for both food and drink. Service was very good. Social distancing measures are in place and observed. We will go back.
