The Butchart Gardens - The Dining Room
Fantastic food In an amazing atmosphere! Good and service were impeccable! The views were out of this garden!
Afternoon tea in the dining room. Food was very good. Good variety of food for the tea. Excellent service.
Amazing food. Beautiful surroundings.
Great waitress! The experience really made our Butchart Gardens time very memorable.
The food was excellent. The service was friendly and helpful. We were glad we had made reservation, because it was popular. Even though it was full, we didn't feel rushed and had a pleasant afternoon lunch.
Although I had made reservstions days in advance I still had to wait ten minutes for my table to be ready despite being there exactly at the agreed time. The Italian garden is one of my favourites, the window would have been nice. Same short brief menu with limited options and a kitchen unwilling to adapt nor the capability of producing the simplest salad. The tea was delightful. An expanded scotch menu would be appreciated. Beautiful facade and table settings.
Awesome daye night!
Lovely outdoor seating, shaded, protected from the wind 3:15-4:45. View of the rose, Italian Gardens and sea. Afternoon tea was exquisite and a delight for the taste buds.
Amazing ambiance... treat yourself! Beautifully delicious... finished off our day ! We enjoyed a great lunch and sat outside overlooking the gardens. What a place!
A disappointing experience as we were tucked away from the main dining area. Service was average.
We enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea to break up our experience of the wonderful gardens. This tea is much better food...and better priced, than tea at The Empress, and the dining room is very pretty.
Everything was perfect. We were able to get in 30 minutes early
We really enjoyed our time at Butchart Gardens. The Afternoon Tea experience was excellent and the gardens stunning.
We had afternoon tea. It was delicious but a bit high priced.
Lovely experience! Enjoyed the food and service was excellent.
A beautiful early summer evening with incredible food in a world class setting with amazing views. And the price was very reasonable.
Kudos to the chef and kitchen staff, and big applaud to the servers. My husband and I had a dinner on the deck, which was one of the best dining experiences in our lives. Thank you for the great evening!
Young and old members of our group enjoyed our tea.
Lovely location within the beautiful gardens. We were seated in an enclosed porch area with charming trellis and flower designs on the walls and a view of the Italian garden. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food took a little longer than expected, but both our server and another person (manager?) addressed the delay and we were compensated for it. Several of us had the afternoon tea service and some ordered from the lunch menu. Everything was delicious! The tea trays were plenty to fill us up and we had leftovers. Loved the teaberry flavored tea! Overall, a wonderful experience. We didn't mind the food delay because it gave us more time to enjoy the setting and the staff were so good about addressing it with us. Definitely recommend afternoon tea here!
The food & service was excellent! The setting is unparalleled. Just beautiful. My husband said he had the best caesar salad of his life. I also appreciated that our entrees came out piping hot.
We purchased the admission and dinner special. The food was fantastic (get the lemon dessert!!), and the service was excellent. A great value, the quality of the food was very high for the price.
My wife and I enjoyed afternoon tea, it was a perfect setting with great service and wonderful atmosphere.
Wonderful experience !!! I would recommend whoever visits Victoria to enjoy the Tea at the Gardens
We enjoyed our meal and the best part was definitely our sever!! We will be referring your establishment to friends family etc.
Fantastic experience. Truly delightful in every way!!!
It was a lovely experience for me have the afternoon tea with my parents.
Absolutely memorable experience having afternoon tea for our first time. The ambience was outstanding. We were very lucky to be seated in the dining room where our window overlooked the private gardens there (the one small closed-off garden that the public isn't allowed to enter). Just divine. To go with our afternoon tea, we chose their "Backyard Flight" consisting of a cider, sparkling wine and blackberry dessert wine, which was outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly and professional and advised us to drink the cider with the savory treats, the sparkling wine with the scones and the dessert wine with the sweet treats. This was our first time visiting Butchart Gardens and this restaurant and we know we will return to both.
Amazing staff, amazing afternoon tea selections and amazing atmosphere!
always a great place to take visitors for the best tea in town.
Go food, I think we had a newer server whom was a little off.
Absolutely wonderful! A beautiful restaurant and a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Our waiter was fantastic and we had a great time. Highly recommend!
Afternoon tea was much anticipated for our visit to the Gardens. They did not disappoint as everything was fantastic!
My husband and I were in Victoria for the first time and were pleased that Butchart Gardens had a restaurant on site that offered an afternoon tea overlooking the grounds. It was very good, especially the Earl Grey tea. The sandwiches were all good and they offered a variety of ingredients. Of course, the pastries were wonderful. It was also reasonably priced compared to some in town. Enjoyed it very much.
We had the afternoon tea and received very poor service. We got a table against the wall with a beam in the way of any nice view. The server was nice but there were many mistakes.. we did not receive our table settings with our food.. had to ask for the plate/cutlery/tea strainer... our food took a long to come out. We arrived at 11:30 and didn’t get out of there until 1:30 which put us behind our time for walking gardens, to top it off when the bill came there was a charge for an extra meal and lucky that I caught the mistake or we would have been charged an extra $41+ which is not a good value for the portion of food you receive. I thought for all the trouble they would have given us a discount...we came for the Butchart experience with family from another country and sadly the dining room experience disappointed! Thankfully the garden itself made up for it. Would not recommend
Tea on the veranda was a wonderful way to conclude our 52 anniversary trip.
Came here for a 65th birthday celebration. Food was unbelievable, Service was professional, all in all a "must come again" experience.
The room was beautiful and filled with amazing floral arrangements. It was bright with natural light and the tables were not close together. Service and food exceptional. Our first time there, and planning to return.
Fine food in an unbeatable setting. It was a high point of our day in Victoria.
Absolutely amazing! Highly recommend!
The ambiance was beautiful. The food was outstanding and the service could not have been better!
