A lovely location with glorious outlook over the ocean. However, we found service to be less than expected for an up market facility. One of my guests received cold coffee which was a poor start. Our menu selections were good but not memorable. The Bennies were hard despite specifying soft. Coffee quality good once the first issue resolved. I would expect servers to know which item is delivered to which seat location in this standard of dining. I do believe training would help in this respect. We loved the ambience, but work is needed to leave guests with a memorable experience and reason to return.

We had a romantic dinner and our waiter, Michael, was very friendly and attentive. We both had the coconut crab bisque and the seafood spaghetti and they were fantastic!

terrible waitress and the manager was not much better. My daughter is diabetic and asked for eggs Benedict, oil & vinegar dressing and hollandaise on the side, no cranberries with the salad.
The waitress brought the balsamic dressing not oil & vinegar my daughter tasted it and it tasted like it had sugar the waitress said definitely no sugar so she put the dressing on her salad. My daughter still felt it had sugar the waitress argued about sugar in the dressing, she reluctantly brought oil & vinegar. We said she already put the balsamic on the salad. the waitress hesitated then said well do you want a new salad. My daughter was embarrassed and declined. We both left hungry from her birthday lunch. the waitress also spilt a flute of prosecco down the back of an old lady at the table behind us, the waitress said "sorry about that" and left, my daughter helped move the chairs around so the lady wasn't sitting on a wet chair, everyone was trying to help with her soaked sweater. the manager showed up and I think gave her a drink, didn't offer to dry clean the sweater or take her lunch off the bill. I was shocked at the poor service both we and the other table received. the waitress could care less if my daughter was diabetic and concerned about the sugar. No I will not recommend OB Beach Hotel.

Nice place for hotel guests to have a fine dinner. The seafood spagatii was nice and the service was beyond good.
The dining room was with nice view but relatively small, and maybe just me, but the light/candle was a bit too dim.
Overall a good place!

If you’re in the area, make sure to dine here. Seems unassuming, however the service and food are impeccable. 3 months later and we still talk about how much we endnotes our dinner here.

Great environment. Expensive, but I am assuming part of the cost is being located in a high-end hotel. Food was good, chowder was excellent. Service was friendly and quick. Parking is complimentary, which is a welcome surprise. Menu for lunch was not the same as on the website so disappointed. However, given the option of the pub menu which saved the day. Chef's Menu of steak is only available at lunch during the weekdays. Why is that? $100 for 3 for lunch seemed steep especially as we only drank water and two of our meals were eggs.

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.
