The Courtney Room Top 10 Canada

Local produce, house dry-aged steak & fresh seafood. 

Gather at the bar for fresh-shucked oysters. Unwind with friends over sharing plates in the lower brasserie; or savour an elegant dinner in the upstairs dining room with impeccably prepared local seafood, steak and fine wine.

The Food
Executive Chef Sam Harris’ menu is inspired by both land and sea, and celebrates Canada’s local and seasonal products with a classic French twist.

“I let my food speak for itself,” says Chef Harris. “It’s ingredient-driven yet understated and approachable. I want my dishes to convey a real sense of place and I am excited to continue my close work with the amazing local producers on Vancouver Island.”

Look for house-made sausage and charcuterie, and in-house dry aged beef. Fresh local produce and seafood. Watch for some old classics with a creative new preparation.

For an exceptional dining experience, ask about the Chef’s 5 Course Tasting Menu, with optional wine pairing and caviar service.

The Bar
“Diverse and approachable, a little something for everyone” is how sommelier Anna Romeyn Ion describes the wine program at The Courtney Room. With a wine list of approximately 60 wines, a wine preservation system allows The Courtney Room to serve more than 20 wines by the glass, including 4 sparkling. Anna and Adrian Gatt, Food & Beverage Manager, have curated a wine list that represents the best of varietals and regions. British Columbia wines are showcased, and French wines are well represented.

Look for the best in spirits, beer and cider, including a selection from Vancouver Island. The cocktail program includes the classics, as well as some house originals.

The Room
Taking cues from the old grand dame hotels of Paris, Sharon Bortolotto of BBA Design was inspired by the classic French bistro. The Courtney Room boasts high ceilings, and is layered with elements of Art Nouveau to create a casually elegant ambience. Focal features include commissioned artwork by Blu Smith in an abstract expressionist style and a central black granite bar framed between two paneled wood columns with white marble chevron detail – a place to gather and be seen.

The Story
Born of the desire to continue the experience of timeless hospitality embodied by the award-winning Magnolia Hotel & Spa, The Courtney Room delights locals and visitors alike with delicious local cuisine and exemplary service. Welcome!
