I had not been here for years and was worried that it would not live up to the hype in my mind. DInner was wonderful. Perfect flavors, subtle, delicious. A slow and relaxed meal, seasonal and local ingredients in a wonderful building. I love the art, gardens, views and hope that it can keep this ambiance and quality.

Overpriced and slow service. Food was of average quality but a bit short on quantity. Staff seemed disinterested in serving customers whilst we were there

We arrived a little early so we walked around the beautiful property. Around sunset we started our dining Experience. They offer an standard menu or a 3 or 4 course meal with or without wine pairings. We all chose the 4 course with the wine pairing. I started with the corn and scallop chowder soup and then a tuna appetizer,followed... More

Set menu with some choices. The place has a grand reputation, and while largely deserved, they know it a little too well.

We are repeat visitors as this is one of our favorite restaurants and country inns in North America. I suppose we will keep coming back for the ambiance of the inn and excellent restaurant. As 30 year repeat guests we expected a little better recognition than we got. Where the owners used to personally greet and welcome us each visit,... More

Absolutely adored the quinoa salad, I want to eat it every day for the rest of my life!! The food served for my brothers wedding was delicious. Almost everything was GF which was so lovely. I loved being able to eat everything except for 2 things rather that only 2 things.

Recommend Sooke Harbour House ? Absolutely! We had heard that it was good but didn't expect it to be so good. The flavours in our food were stunning, and the use of local and 'in season' produce inspired. The time and trouble taken over getting it just right reflected the Chef's talent and attention to detail. There is a set... More

Unfortunately the food was not up to all the hype. Far too many pickled items which did not marry well with other menu items and braised lamb? I feel the lamb should have been a nice tender cut served medium rare for the price. the best part of the dinner was the spectacular dessert. The servers were lovely and the... More

We had a lovely sea view from our table but the chairs were rickety and very uncomfortable. The four course menu had very limited choices and, as it turned out, foraged food doesn't necessarily taste all that great. The server was inappropriately casual for that type of dining room. When a customer inquired about the crab, she said it didn't... More

Chef Oliver worked with my dietary issues and the meal was great. I would go back in a second and if you are staying at SHH enjoy your breakfasts with Chef Kira who will certainly prepare wonderful meals and is very thoughtful about local, organic foods.
