Very creative . Dishes should be amazing but every dish simply missed a beat. Salads were overdressed. Chowder was a bit watery . Fish and chip batter was caked not crispy. Dessert was either runny or overly dense. Someone needs to taste the food coming...out of the kitchen. Hotel and restaurant is marketed as high end, but far from. Good at best, but don’t expect an experience .More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner experience on September 1. We were seated on the patio around 730pm and were looked after by a professional, friendly and engaged server ( recently arrived from Sarnia) in a manner that really made our evening special...and fun. Service timing of beverages, apps, mains and desserts was paced perfectly. The food was delicious , well seasoned and served at the right temperatures. Seems simple but not always common. High five goes to the culinary team! The beauty of the setting goes without saying. Your MOD , Jeffery (?) checked in on us a couple of times and appeared genuinely concerned that we were having a great evening. If you have a recognition program for your team our server ( withholding name for privacy) was a standout star and should receive due consideration!More

They give the appearance of being fancy (eg. sign saying reservations only for dinner). The patio is lovely...nice ocean view where you can watch the seals. Don't know why they have electronic dance music playing (softly) on their speakers. We ordered the special $19 seafood...chowder...and while not that big, it was delicious. Especially the grilled scallop. Too bad there was ony one. And the cup of clam chowder that came with the fish was also very nice. As for the 25 dollar fish and chips? Well, I think that's corn meal that they use for the batter on the one piece of cod they give you....and it was soft, tasteless, and mushy. The fries and the coleslaw were pretty regular./ordinary. The service was pleasant and it came reasonably quickly.More

We arrived after a tiring day, 5 hour flight and then sightseeing in Victoria. We were seated on time. The view from the patio table was great and the service excellent, complete with pleasant conversation and photo taking. We had crab cakes, seafood capellini, wine...and SOB (Sooke Oceanside Brewery) beer. Not a Michelin rated restaurant but exactly what we needed before walking to our room to rest. When we stay again at Prestige Resort in Sooke, we will dine again here.More

Ambiance was stellar, service great but the food was very sadly lacking. Had the seafood chowder. Appearance and texture both were less than desirable. Flavour was weak. Lovely crouton floating in it. The seafood pasta was a low medium. Very little flavour, the sauce was...watery and somehow spaghetti seemed the wrong pasta. The seafood was fresh and flavourful however. Didn’t want to chance dessert.More

This roomy, beautifully-furnished restaurant definitely makes you feel you are on holiday at a resort. The views of the water are dreamy, the service is kind, and the food is delicious! There is also veranda seating. Definitely make reservations for dinner time. This is a...great place to gather and meet friends, have romantic meals, business meetups, entertain family (kids' menu available with crayons) but make sure you are not in a rush because it took nearly an hour for our food to arrive from ordering time. Not a cheap meal but worth it for the ambiance, pleasant surroundings and quality meals.More

We were recommended to go to the West Coast Grill by family who had been very impressed by it. We had lunch and passed through the impressive hotel lobby to the restaurant where we were greeted by welcoming helpful staff and shown to a table...on the patio with stunning views over the bay. Our waitress was charming - helpful, efficient and full of useful advice on sites to visit. Our meals were all delicious (I had the fish and chips which was amazing). We will definitely return.More

Pretty solid choice if you are in Sooke. My wife and I had lunch there. She raved about the fish and chips and I had a very solid Croque Monsieur.

This was an unexpected surprise in a small place like Sooke. The menu is fine dining but has some items that are fairly casual as well. Make your reservations well in advance as it fills up quickly . We enjoyed the oysters on the half...shell. We also tried the Burrata with Tomato. What a treat! So many flavours! Stephanie, our waitress one day, was delightful. She was friendly and helpful and was so much fun! We had two dinners and two breakfasts here and our meals were delicious and well presented.More

The buffet was around $25 plus tax, it’s not usually offered year round. If you just want pancakes (blueberry) breakfast off the menu it’s $13 plus tax. See their online menu for current offers and menu items.

Sorry, only had dinner there, but it was pricey. I think they had a menu with prices online. Check that out. Service & food was very good.
