We've dined at Sooke Harbour House in more than one occasion, the first being 10 years ago when the food was outstanding and the service wonderful (knew their food and wines, provded the right amount of attention). So we were really looking forward to a repeat experience this past June on another west coast vacation.
What a disappointment !!!! The food was very ordinary and the set menus uninspiring with really limited choice. But that wasn't the worst part!! We have never experienced such uninformed and often rude wait staff - ever - in a fine dining setting such as this promises in advertising!!!
Uninformed? - they couldn't tell us anything about the food we were ordering ("well, it's whatever is there on the menu"), or about the wines ("I don't know"). Unbelievable!!!
Rude? - yes they were hurrying us out at 9 p.m. - who would've thought that a fine dining establishment closes at 9 p.m. in summer???
Don't bother with Sooke Harbour House for the dining experience. There are other restaurants in the Victoria area that will give you tastier food and much better service.
