Golf was great but the food and service here are exceptional. Beautiful views and a very relaxing atmosphere. If you want a nice place to take someone for lunch or dinner this place should be on your list.

We had a delicious dinner with amazing views of the mountains. The service was fantastic. Our waiter was supper attentive and even brought cake over because I mentioned we were celebrating my friends birthday. We will definitely be back.

Several people told me that they regularly take out of town guests here for the view and it does not disappoint. Located on the lush and green golf course, it offers beautiful mountain views. The food is good too and there is lots of outdoor seating and the outdoor area is very dog friendly.

I have eaten lunch at Escena previously and have generally been satisfied with the pub food style fare. This last week I have eaten there twice for lunch after golf; I was disappointed both times. The "hot" sandwich was an overly large portion, came served cold with the melted cheese at a rubbery stage. The flavour and seasoning just weren't... More

Went with friends for dinner. Was able to watch the huskies game and have great conversation with friends while dining. Josh, the bartender, is very personable, accommodating to food allergies and knoweldgeable of the menu and ingredients.

The views from this restaurant are panoramic and breathtakingly beautiful! Their Sunday Brunch is hugely popular with good reason and reservations are a must. The food is good and they try hard on the service. It's a place to enjoy the great company of others, bask in the views, sip beverages and enjoy a perfectly good meal.

LOVED Escena Grill the first time I ate there and just had to try it again after another round of golf. It was still Breakfast and had the Mexican Omelette, with fresh fruit, and sourdough toast. All the food was GREAT!!! You can tell they use really fresh ingredients, large fluffy omelette (with Chorizo, fresh Jalapeno, cheese), the fruit was... More

Wonderful clubhouse grill with walls of glass overlooking the grounds with sweeping views of the majestic mountains in the background. The menu has something for everyone. I enjoyed the blue cheese/ bacon burger and the house-made chips they served upon our arrival. The Spicy Ranch dipping sauce was some of the best I had. Used more for my fries that... More
