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.

Wonderful seafood in a luxurious setting. No oysters, sadly, there was an infestation of red algae in the area. Crab and clams were plentiful, however, and all the seafood was perfectly fresh and beautifully prepared.

While staying at the Brentwood we decided to stay in and eat hotel food and were pleasantly surprised to find a delicious dinner at the Seagrille. It is a beautiful restaurant with a great view, very comfortable seating and a very polite and well-trained staff. Our servers, Sarah and Stephanie were so poised and first class all around. The courses and the drinks and wines were all served very promptly and properly. The Beet Salad was delicious as were the Duck Confit (Special) and the Sturgeon. The Pub next door looks great too! So glad we decided not to travel. Love this place!

This is a tough review because the food was actually quite good and the service was adequate, but my goodness - what is going on in that kitchen!! My husband and I had a salad and an entree for dinner and it took 2 1/2 hours from start to finish. The place wasn't busy so I don't know what the time delay was all about. The server was attentive and kept telling us our food would be delivered shortly - sure hate to see how long it would be if the place was busy. We tried it again for breakfast and this time the wait was over an hour for our meal. We joked we should have phoned the order in from the room. After these two attempts we didn't eat in the dining room again on our trip.

We live just up the road from the Brentwood Bay Lodge. This spring and summer has been overly hot, 35 degrees in our garden. Neither my husband nor I wanted to BBQ on the hot deck. So why not treat ourselves to supper at to the Seagrille? We had good memories of our meal there last New Years Eve.
With encouragement from our server I ordered the sturgeon. It was good, just as she described. The vegetable was grilled endive - quite dry and tasteless. Needed some oomph. My husband ordered the halibut, his favourite fish. With his first forkful, he discovered it was under cooked. Our server took it back to the kitchen. When the meal returned the serving of fish was much smaller than the original portion. After that we didn't see our server. Although the restaurant had many open tables, a party of 4 was seated right next to us. We felt uncomfortable for ourselves and for them. I suspect that the restaurant was short staffed as tables were not cleared after guests left and the sommelier pitched in to help with severing. We payed $150 for 2 entrees, 1 sherbet dessert , and a bottle of prosecco. (My husband asked me to add that this modest meal took 2 hours.)
We support our local business but are reluctant to recommend the Seagrille until we visit again.

We decided to try the restaurant because we were staying at the hotel. The pub was full to capacity due to a group reservation, so they seated us in the restaurant but assured us we could order off the pub menu no problem. We were ignored by the waitress both in taking our order and in bringing the check (I had to flag her down eventually). The food took a long time to arrive and was mediocre pub/restaurant fare. We love to try different types of poutine and until this trip haven't been disappointed. We will be back to Brentwood, but we will stick to Victoria restaurants.
