This was our second visit to Sooke Harbour House and was even more disappointing than the first. The menu is basically a 4 course tasting menu for $80, and while the menu does indicate that the dishes are available a la carte, no prices are given. This is very annoying as it is somewhat uncomfortable to have ask for the... More

My wife had the morel mushrooms and I had the Dungeness crab. Both were delicious and the dessert options were even better. Excellent wine selection and everything tasted fresh. It was great to see to the kitchen staff in the morning picking herbs from their garden.

Having friend's wedding party for 3 course dinner, food is good but need to wait too long between each other. Not enough lighting in the tank that special arrange for the party about 90 people. Toilet is small, not up to standard. Service is good.

We've been many times, mostly because our parents love it and have all of their big events here. It's upscale, incredibly tasteful, wonderfully unpretentious and lovely. We love everything about Sooke Harbor House and recommend it as a worthwhile splurge, or just a lovely place to visit if you're out exploring the Vancouver Island countryside. Stop for coffee and a... More

As a recent Sooke resident, we feel we should try and support local businesses as much as possible. The Sooke Harbour House is well renowned for its food quality, service and location, so we had to give it a try. After having eaten there three times over the last 6 months, we will neither be returning, nor feel we can... More

We recently had dinner for 8 adults and a baby in the Sooke Harbour House Restaurant. My husband and I had celebrated an anniversary here a few years ago and had a great meal then. We don't remember that meals were set up then as 3 or 4 course meals and found the present menu set up that way was... More

We planned our trip to Canada around eating here. Had 7 courses with wine pairing (more on wine later). Every course was incredible, except the salmon which was very overcooked. It was so bad they took great pains to cook the next course pork perfectly. Our son had the 4 course dinner which was well worth the $79 price tag.... More

It can be risky to go back to a restaurant that holds such strong memories from the past. Was it really as good as you remember? Is it still as good as you hoped? Tastes change, people change, restaurants surely change. It was with this apprehension that Randy and I went back to Sooke Harbour House to celebrate a memorable... More
