    Afternoon tea at the dining room was delightful! This was my first afternoon tea and I could not be any happier with the service. Our waitress was very polite, friendly, and attentive. I could not be any happier with our experience at the Butchart Gardens dining room!

    We had Afternoon Tea at the Dining Room and it was absolutely lovely. The staff was welcoming and helpful; the savory and sweet treats were delicious. Two of our party had requested in advance the gluten free tea menu and they were pleasantly surprised at the variety and quality of those options. The room itself is beautiful and a delightful place to enjoy this wonderful experience.

    Service was lacking on a revisit. Took way too long to order our teas and was a long wait between the trifle and tower. Would be an improvement if servers offered hot water refills on their own accord. Scones were flat/small especially compared to standard high tea, and the carrot cake really needs improvement. Front hosts were friendly and savoury items were better in comparison.

    Pleasant ambience and excellent service. However the food lacks to be desired . The savory servings were creative and tasty whereas the sweet ones were only less than mediocre confections lacking imagination or sophistication. I guess you pay for the experience more than for the food.
