A word from Hooded Merganser at Penticton Lakeside Resort
The Hooded Merganser was designed to provide guests with a lakeside experience like no other. Vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows have made us the place to be during storm watching season. The outdoor patio is incredible during the warmer months. The menu features delicious contemporary cuisine cooked to perfection in the open kitchen. Enjoy the superb selection of hard-to-find Okanagan wines from our cellars. Tie up your boat at the marina and come in for a truly enjoyable time.Continued

  • "My favourite place on okanagan lake. Food was delicious with a great 'local' wine list The view is unsurpassed and stands up to any international location. Our server Meg was not only attentive but very personable and added to our enjoyment. Don't just safe this place for a special occasion go there often!"

  • "Made a reservation based on trip advisors reviews and was not disappointed. Food was fabulous from appie, to main and dessert. I had the tuna and would highly recommend it. One odd thing was that when we ordered the sushi appetizer we got cheap wooden chopsticks. I think in a place like this they should have nicer utensils. Our server was great, the view was perfect and overall it was a wonderful experience with amazing food. "

  • "It's a great location, impossible to beat. Restaurant is pleasantly upscale. Menu is varied with lots of local ingredients and food is prepared with care. Last summer we spotted the chef out cutting herbs in the garden. Portions were large, we split the spinach and pecan salad and still we each got enough for two. Price was actually less than we often spend on dinner out, so not bad. We will be back. It's our second favourite restaurant in Penticton, but the Bench isn't really in the same league so the two don't compete."

  • "We met friends for lunch on the weekend. Only one complaint about the food and it was promptly rectified. A shout out to Steve, the manager, who took care of everything in a friendly yet professional manner"

  • "We loved every little thing about it. From the moment we walked into that door, the staff members were friendly and welcoming. Our server was so helpful an enthusiast about the food that made our lunch experience more enjoyable. She was attentive and made sure we were having a great time and that we were taken care off. My friends and I would like to come back soon because of the great service, amazing food and nice lake view."

  • "This is my favourite restaurant in Penticton, firstly for the awesome view from every table, and secondly for the food. I had prime rib on Saturday night and it was "to die for".... Perfectly medium rare, melt-in-your-mouth delicious."

  • "Food not good at all. Spring rolls too oily and edamame beans also coated in oil. No salt on the beans and no salt or pepper on the table. The only appetizer I found reasonable but not great was the tuna tacos. Overall did not live up to the decor and setting. The wine was left out to stand too long and was warm. Definitely do not recommend this place."

  • "We love the eggs benedict. My favourite is the Pacific with smoked salmon. Always done to perfection. It is a thrill to have a meal while watching the ducks, eagles and muskrats!!"

  • "We booked a table at the Hooded Merganser in Penticton through the 'Open Table Restaurant Reservations'. Just as requested, the restaurant provided us with a lovely table overlooking the Penticton Lake. We had 3 generations with us - so the quiet, helpful and exclusive atmosphere was just what we needed to celebrate a birthday and a farewell amongst family at the beginning of 2014. I had a Lamb Sirloin filled with goats cheese and walnut - this could be cooked to your preference, our other orders included Tikka Masala, BBQ Ribs, Potroast and PrimeRib. We all swapped a piece of meat out of each other's meal, so we could see who had the best tasting meal! All meals tasted just as succulent - so just choose what you enjoy with confidence!"

  • "Christmas decorations and atmosphere was as nice as I seen anywhere! Food was excellent, kind of like the old Magnum used to be. Keep up the good trend. We like that you use a lot of local (and homegrown) products. this place is a must to bring any guest from out of town."

  • "Our experience was over all ok. We like the location and the view from the restaurant. The service was probably what would make me not go back. The waitress actually stuck her nose in my wine glass to smell it. As removed a plate before we were finished. The food was fine however nothing to be excited about. The scallops were under cooked and mushy."
