Thank you for this opportunity to say Thank You for my excellent birthday dinner. Sarah as always provided friendly and excellent service. We have been wondering if the dessert menu will be changed
For a pork chop a tiny salad or a too thick soup and some hard granola on-top of Cherry's not impressed for 50 a person. The side with the pork chop was risotto and I must tell you it looked like mashed potatoes and tastes like a ball of flavour less starch. The granola on-top of the. Dessert was burnt and hard as a rock. The whip cream was and oozing pile of milk on my plate by the time I got it. The salad was terrible. No dressing on arugula is Ugh. The server was fantastic and made our evening quite pleasant. But we won't go back. Oh and there was a wedding so it was super loud.
My food made my stomachs hurt, our server was unfriendly, and the seating offered little privacy despite only housing a few guests.
You REALLY need to replace the sad old saggy chairs! All of us were very uncomfortable sitting in them. Also, please put lights on a dimmer - SO dark and gloomy on a dark morning. ☹️
Thank you for your candor. The dining room chairs are on our radar and are part of our facility improvement plan. The lights are currently equipped with dimmer switches. Perhaps we can look at a different type of bulb to improve the lighting. We hope, in the meantime, that the quality of our food and service will keep you coming back.
Beautiful room with a view. The tables were not crowded together. All the servers were very friendly. The buffet breakfast had a good variety. We especially enjoyed the eggs benedict and the waffles. The food could have been a little bit warmer. Coffee was plentiful once we had our first cup - took awhile. When being seated we could have been told to go ahead and help ourselves to the buffet - we had to ask. Not a big problem. Overall it was very enjoyable and reasonably priced. We would go back again.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Our next brunch buffet will be on Easter Sunday, hope to see you there!
I made my reservation online. When we arrived the reservation could not be found. After some searching it appeared that I had booked for a week ahead. However when I got home and checked my email, the reservation was for the date we were there. Glitch in the system I guess. Luckily it wasn’t busy and we were still able to get a table by the window. The food was ok. My elderly uncle being raised by British parents did not appreciate drinking his tea out of a mug. Sometimes he even brings his own cup and saucer to restaurants. I have to agree with him on that one. The best thing about this restaurant is the spectacular view.
We enjoyed the evening at the restaurant. The ambiance and service was very good. We had the roast beef that was featured that day. The roast was very good, the vegetables were a bit on the raw side and the Yorkshire pudding a great disappointment. It was like eating tofu. In all our travels we have never had Yorkshire pudding of that consistency. Not good. We will go back to the restaurant and try something different.
Hi Mike, thank for taking the time to leave a detailed review. I'm sorry about the consistency of the Yorkshires. They are not normally served that way and our kitchen is reviewing their preparation process to make sure that this does not happen again. I hope we will see you again sooner rather than later so that we can have the chance to impress you with the quality of our food!
We did not know this restaurant existed. We were looking to have a family dinner out - our family lives in Victoria and Nanaimo.. this restaurant is in between the two locations. It was perfect for our gathering. Good food (variety and tasty), service and space. We had a 6 year old and 10 year old with us, and in this environment they were comfortable and so were the other guests.. We will definitely go back ! thanks! Can't wait to return during the day in the summer to fully enjoy the views.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We're very glad to hear that you had such a good time with us, hope to see you again soon!
We are repeat customers and have noted a big change in the food. Quantity, presentation, flavour and value need to be enhanced .
Thank you for you candid review. We are always trying to find ways to improve our menu and have just published our December feature sheet with BBQ ribs and butter chicken. Having tried both of them, I can vouch for their quality and I hope you'll come in and give us another chance to impress. Successful features are often added to our full time menu, so your feedback will be very important in improving our offerings.
We love the Satellite Bar & Grill! Took a couple who hadn’t been before, and they really liked it also. Service was terrific, and the Prime Rib was perfect.
Thanks for the great review and for bringing new people to try us out. We sincerely appreciate the support!
Delicious food at reasonable prices, excellent service and a view to die for. A hidden gem!
Thanks for your fabulous review! We really appreciate you taking the time to promote our business, so thoughtful of you! We look forward to your next visit.
Always very enjoyable and good service too. Love the atmosphere
Thanks for the review and the kind comments, we look forward to your next visit!
The Satellite Grille is a great place to eat. Service is always excellent...food is generally very good. However, there was an issue with one of the food dishes the other night. When the manager asked how we were enjoying our food, he was advised that one of the prime rib dinners was sinuy. He didn't offer to remedy the issue...just went to another table. Don't bother asking how patron's dinners are if you aren't prepared to do anything about a problem with the food.
Thanks for leaving such a nice review recommending our restaurant; we appreciate it. I'll check with the manager, to see what happened in this instance. We look forward to your next visit.
We had a wonderful meal at a table over looking the 18th green. The service was great and the food was delicious. We will definately go back
Thanks for the kind review, so glad to hear you will be returning!
The atmosphere and exceptional quality of service were outstanding.
Unfortunately, the quality of the food was quite poor. The batter on the fish and chips was heavy and greasy. As well, the greasiness of the batter reflected an overused oil from the deep fryer, which was also evident in the french fries. Even though the quantity of the battered fish was generous, the pieces should be plated separately from the salad. The hot, oily fish smothered the salad making it unpalatable.
We will not order fish and chips again here and were somewhat embarrassed to have recommended it to our friends.
Thank for your review, we will share your comments with our Chef. Greasy Fish & Chips is definitely not what we're going for, this is not normal. There also looks as if there was a plating issue with the fish, it should not be anywhere near the salad. We are working on updating our syllabus to ensure these types of errors do not happen...ever. Our apologies the food did not meet expectations. We sincerely appreciate the honest feedback and hope to see you again!
