Description: Inspired by the inherent and intrinsic beauty of the Pacific North West, the Dining Room at Brentwood Bay stands unpretentious in its character. Willing to be both timelessly classic and ingenious in our creative process, we are here, quite simply, to celebrate. Ever searching for the soul that is within each element of the dish, we draw these essences together to create something entirely new, yet entirely familiar. In the same breath that we celebrate the truest nature of our ingredients, we celebrate the beauty that comes from finding authenticity within ourselves. With care and attention to who you are, we strive to create the experience that will align with you the most. We will dazzle, if you choose to be dazzled. We will educate, should you wish to be educated. We will serve you silently with barely a whisper, should you choose to spend the evening simply indulging in the company of your dining partners. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

We had a fabulous dinner 2 days before Christmas. The food was nicely cooked and well presented & we found our waitress to be very attentive. The portions were just right for us....we had enough but were not stuffed. The atmosphere was warm however the accoustics were bad when the resturant became really busy, could no longer hear each other talk!
I will say though that it is slightly over priced, being justified by the fact that the Brentwood Resort is located very close to the famous Buchart Gardens & i suppose "willing to pay" tourist. Over all it is a great place to eat a fine dinning/semi-casual meal. The menu does offer MORE THAN JUST SEAFOOD & the wine list is good!

Anyone wanting a first class dining experience in the greater Victoria area should check out, Seagrille.The room sits overlooking the marina and we happened to arrive just as the sun was setting across the inlet creating a wonderful warm color in room that makes it feel cozy and relaxed. The atmosphere is elegent and casual. The service is carried out in a polished, professional & courteous manner, with just the right amount of checking to ensure all is good, if you know what I mean. Our food was on time, hot, & delicious. The menue includes a "5 course" for a reasonal price, we choose a la carte. It all was truly a wonderful experience!

Our dramatic West Coast contemporary design with soaring windows, fir timbers, and oceanfront views within the Seagrille certainly make a great way to wind down at the end of your day. We’re pleased that your dining experience was first class and look forward to having you join us again, perhaps next time for our top quality sushi made fresh to order at our Sushi & Sake bar or trying the multi-course dinner option you mentioned. Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

My partner and I were recently treated by her son to the Seagrille's five-course dinner at the Brentwood Bay Resort and Spa. We'd dined previously at the pub on the deck overlooking the water and always had excellent food and service but this was our first time at the restaurant. Each of our five courses was excellent, served by a very personable and efficient server. Everything was so enjoyable that, not wishing to spoil the mood; my partner excused herself for a few minutes and came back with keys to a room. Knowing we no longer had to drive home we relaxed and happily finished our wine. The Food and Beverage Manager, who we'd met previously at one of our visits to the pub, recognized us and came over to check that everything was satisfactory. We assured him it was and in fact, so much so that we were reluctant to leave and had booked a room. Imagine our surprise when a few minutes later he returned and told us we'd been upgraded to the best available suite, complete with our own private hot tub on the deck, jetted tub in the beautiful bathroom, fireplace, king bed all in a wonderful west coast setting.
We love our home in Victoria and are always happy to return but left the Brentwood Hotel and Spa with much regret. If we had unlimited funds we'd still be there!

The quality of food at Seagrille makes the meal an extreme value.We had two appetizers and two entrees and all of the food was delicious. I would highly recommend the filet mignon or the bison short ribs.
The view of the bay from the restaurant is a welcomed addition to the overal experience.

I liked the five course tasting menu. Unfortunately with the amazing ingredients and stunning chefs on the island, this was not the best I have had this year. My husband commented that good as it was, there are better places to eat. Great service, though.
