It is s lovely small restaurant. The views are nice, service attentive, and food excellent. My only complaint is that the dessert selection was unimaginative and boring. When going out for a special dinner in a beautiful hotel there should be appropriate dessert choices.

The dining experience at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel was excellent. The food was good - especially the gnocchi! And the service was courteous and prompt. The only problem was the water which was clearly unfiltered tap water.

Fabulous ocean view from the elegant dining room. I imagine dinner could be a dressy affair but we were OK in our fairly casual clothes at lunch. The eggs benedict were just right, there was a large selection of good wines and the wait staff were cheerful and attentive without being intrusive. Easy parking in the hotel underground garage.

Great family breakfast experience with diverse food offerings.
One suggestion: some of the food and plates should have been heated more effectively.

We asked for a window table to avoid being in the middle of the room, so we could have a bit of a meeting, while we ate. The table and room were perfect. Waiter and meal were great, and allowed us to get our meeting accomplished. Thank you!

We had an amazing meal at the Dining Room. Our server Michael, was fantastic. He was very kind and helpful with suggestions and very knowledgable about the menu. The food was great. We really enjoyed the seared scallops. For mains we had the New York steak which was seasoned and cooked perfectly, as well as the Lingcod which was excellent both in conception and execution. The view is spectacular as is the entire Oak Bay Beach Hotel property. Thanks for a great and memorable meal!

A a quaint, cozy atmosphere. We are from Victoria, in our 70s and find it difficult to find somewhere quiet so that we can hear each other talk. We will certainly be telling our friends about this find. Our server, Michael, was very personable and was quite helpful for tourists. Will definitely return.
