    The hotel is beautiful and the pub has excellent clam chowder and wings,however the the dining room lack any ambiance and the the prices are not shown for the dinners. I was shocked to get a bill of $366 for 2 steaks dinners and $44 for 2 glasses of extremely cheap wine which we didn't drink. Rarely am I shocked at the price and feel the value is better described as extortion.

    I took my mom out for a lovely dinner to celebrate her birthday. We had an exceptional experience - from the service to the food - all was really delicious. And we were absolutely stuffed by the end of our four courses, which is a win for fine dining. Thank you Nolan for your excellent table service!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening dinner in the dining room. The server was very knowledgeable about the different types of food on the menu , including the wines and was very personable with us. The food we had was excellent and a great variety of choices, unfortunately everything was overshadowed when we went to pay the bill and found out that the Steak Oscar that we both ordered came with a $25 surcharge that we were not told about before we ordered and nowhere on the menu did it say anything about it. Other than that we had a great evening.

    I just think for $350 dinner ought to be truly memorable. We left underwhelmed. Also, I don't think payment machines should collect 15% tip on the taxes included in the total bill.

    Very nice dining room with ocean views. The food was very nicely prepared and the set food and wine menu was very well arranged. The service by Nolan our waiter was excellent. Nolan is very knowledgeable about the food menu and wines, and his service style and timing was always right on cue and he helped to make our evening very enjoyable. Thanks for a great evening.

    i visit Oak Bay Beach Hotel regularly for coffee, before the renos started, and for different meals. When we come as a family with a toddler we are usually at the family table outside the dining room, which is also perfect and relaxing. ALL staff members of the hotel make us welcome. The food, view and entire experience is exceptional.

    My wife and I spent a very fine evening at the restaurant. The service was both friendly and impeccable. The food quite excellent and the minor tipple with an Italian wine pleasant. The ambience is overall very good, although because the space is small sound from more ebullient guests tends to carry. To the extent that this was an irritant it resolved when one set of guests moved on. The value is good at least for the occasional evening out in our case. We would certainly recommend friends try the restaurant at least for special occasions.
