We had beet salad and steak sandwich--both were excellent. The salad was fresh and the beef perfectly rare on crispy bread. They put a generous amount of goat cheese and nuts on the salad, so it was very satisfying. The staff was friendly and efficient.

The worst. Reservations for 6 at 7:45 did not get out until 10. Had to ask 3 times for bread and ice. 3 halibut dinners sent back as overcooked and over salted. Not sure replacement was actually halibut. Risotto had concrete taste and texture.More

Had breakfast in the gorgeous dining room. Menu had plenty of options for any eater. Vancouver Island breakfast was perfect and very filling. The strawberry rhubarb jam the chef made was spectacular. Service was excellent. View was perfect.
