We came to this restaurant looking forward to the good food and service we have been experiencing in the Qualicum area but sadly were disappointed. We came without a reservation so were not expecting to get a table right away. We were pleased that as soon as we arrived we could get a table on the terrace overlooking the golf course and with a view of the sea. We could see that most of the tables had been reserved for the "Nine and Dine" people and the inside was already set for a wedding the next day. However, it became apparent right away the "Nine and Dine" people were getting the good service. We felt like "extras" that received only cursory attention. We got the menus on a fly-past by one of the servers. Drink order was OK. Eventually we were asked what we wanted for our food order. I ordered two appetizers to share, a chowder and a small Caeser salad, my husband the lamb dinner. Our food took a long time to come and I noticed that people that arrived after us had received some food. When I was just about to ask if we could at least get some if it, it arrived from someone other than our server. It was unceremoniously handed to us as if the person was in a big hurry. All of the food arrived at once as we were never asked if we would like the appetizers first. Something first like the Calamari would have been nice first and would have passed the time we spent waiting for our food. The Calamari was "OK", the Caeser salad was inedible (and taken off the bill) as it was made with a spring mix and was a soggy, wilting glob.The oysters were passable, the chowder although full of seafood was in need of seasoning. The lamb was fatty and not very warm. We were asked the usual "How are the first few bites" and replied OK except for the salad. At this point we realized the whole thing was beyond complaining about. Really too bad as this location is fabulous and poor food and cursory service spoil the opportunity to be a first rate restaurant. What a waste!
