The welcome was warm, and service was relaxed, professional and thorough throughout the evening. It's December, so too dark to see the ocean in the evenings, but the lawn and the trees were aglow with little lights, and we were delighted to be visited by two little deer just outside our window. And the food - oh my goodness. The... More

A true gastronomic delight, carefully prepared and graciously served awaits the visitor at Sooke Harbour. Superb menu and views that allow the diner to see a sunset over Washington's beautiful Olympic Mountains make this trip very special. Bon appetite...enjoy the wines and the ambiance.

Wow, it was excellent. Nice welcome, good and consistent service. The wine menu is massive and a fun read; we found suitable selections for our taste and budget. The food was excellent - everything we had from the 4 course menu was superb including the presentation. The table bread and butter was delicious, too. Nice atmosphere, not stuffy or pretentious...

The location here is nice, although with fog was hard to appreciate the view. The dining room nicely laid out and you got the feeling you were in for a lovely meal. However, when we arrived the maitre'd made us wait standimg for ages and at first seems to ignore us altogether while he was setting a table. When he... More

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
