We were greeted by a lovely and welcoming hostess. Service was prompt and friendly! The table was a bit 'sticky'... but a nice table and killer view! My daughter said "This would be a great place to get married and have a party!" Inconsistent impact with the food. My Rueben was over grilled.Salad and dressing were fantastic. Potatoes on side of a burger were soggy and non-descript.Borscht was a bit bland and anemeic looking. Dessert was beautiful and had a great wine tasting with Sarah, following lunch.

Lovely lunch in the sun
We were treated to great food, amazing sparkling wine, beautiful view, and attentive service. I got the superfood salad with smoked salmon - very tasty but I wished there had been more smoked salmon. My partner got the risotto which was quite yummy too.

First time at SPW, their wine focus seems to be sparkling wines, but have others of course. I had the pork chop which was very tender and well prepared. Service was good.
The biggest thing for me though was the view! An incredible view of the mountains, water and coast, covered with an abundant sky with the most interesting cloud shapes.
If you get a chance here, definitely try to get on the balcony for dinner.

Kettle valley adventure
Our biking group had a wonderful start to our adventure by having a lovely supper at the winery. Our waitress really went out of her way to help us by supplying us with a map on how to get to our first nights stay. It is on my list of places to visit again.

We had a wonderful girls lunch. The weather was superb, the food and wine fabulous and, of, course, the company was great.

We have eaten here quite a few times before but I have to say that this time I was little dissapointed. It was our anniversary and I wouldn't pick this restaurant again for a romantic dinner. There were kids running around and people being served wearing the cut off jeans and tank tops - The food was exceptional, as was ther service. My one big complaint is the price of Summerhills own wine. 45$ for a bottle of ehrenfelser! I do realize that there is a mark up of wines in the restaurants but that is ridiculous. I know in mnay other restaurants the wine is price is least 10$ less for a comparable wine. They have a lunch and brunch ,but I wont be back for dinner

Fantastic Sunday Brunch
Our second visit for Sunday brunch this season and it was terrific! The selection and quality of the food has improved tremendously this year and we're very happy to say that Sunset Bistro is now taking over as our very favourite Sunday brunch in Kelowna. The service is friendly, efficient and all around top notch. The view is spectacular! We hope to return often.

You must to go
Excellent food, wonderful ambience. It is incredible you can have oyster, crab leg, shrimp, tuna, roast beef, pancake, benedict, many many fruits & desserts in this Sunday Brunch. Remember to ask for Patio table. It is better & worth than many 5 stars hotels.

Stopped in for lunch on our way to Okanagan Resort. This is a nice place for lunch. We sat on the patio (although very hot on a August afternoon - they need misters), received complimentary champagne as we were celebrating a special occasion. Meal was nice. Service was good.

Really enjoyed the food, wine,
Really enjoyed the food, wine, view, comfortable chairs and spacious tables. Very nice to have emphasis on local and organic food (and wine) - there should be more of this around. Could be more of vegetarian choices on the menu, but the kitchen was very accommodating about adjusting the dish I chose so it could be meatless. Not sure how a vegan would cope. Nice "relaxed professiona"l atmosphere and level of service. Attentive yet not overwhelming or patronizing. No one came to ask "how are the first bites tasting" for which I was truly grateful!
Love this place. Highly recommended.

Great food, knowledgable staff, would recommend anyone looking for a great local farm to fork.

This restaurant has a nice ambiance. Great wine list. The best was the food. You get what is described in the menu and it exceded my expectations! Outstanding!

Having eaten all over the world I would rate this location in my top 3.

Beautiful restaurant in a
Beautiful restaurant in a charming setting. Service was excellent. Very accommodating; let us sit down 15 minutes early, gave us extra bread, were patient when my daughter was trying to make up her mind,. Knowledgeable about the food and wine; made good sugsuggestions. The chicken, beef, and pasta entrees were all delicious and flavorful. Could expand (I.e. have more variety) in choice of appetizers as there were several that were mostly bread.

Great Lake Views
We had a great night at the Summerhill Winery! The food is excellent and has great presentation. You cannot beat the view and the sunset in the evening. The service was very good but not over the top great - really we do not have any complaints but I can't rate it 5. I would dine here again and recommend Summerhill anyone visiting Kelowna. Dining Tip - You should plan to come about 30-45 minutes before your dinner reservation and do a wine tasting - this will help with your wine selection for dinner.

A Beautiful Night
You can't beat the view at this restaurant. Book a time around sunset and you won't regret it. The food was very good. Service was polite, but inattentive at times. They served our shared appetizer without providing any plates, served our entrees without brining cutlery, etc. We tried a selection of their wines and were pleasantly surprised by all. Overall a good evening!

Romantic evening with great view
Summerhill Sunset Bistro not only offers great wines and food but also fantastic views on Lake Okanagan! We had a table right at the front of the deck, awesome service and loved their Buca Noir!!! My husband ate the elk and I had the Falafel Mignon, although I´m not vegan or sensitive to gluten. The portions are medium in size and cost between 25 and 40$. We both loved the elk and found the falafel very healthy but tasty. I would love to go there and taste some other dishes! Very recommended for romantic dinners!

The server was wonderful, very helpful and friendly. We were not able to get a table on the patio but we were seated in an location where we could see the beautiful view. Hostess was very unfriendly, did not look at us or smile, no welcome at all. We were 20 minutes late due to a wrong turn but still no reason to be unfriendly as the restaurant was not full.
I loved the salad and chicken but my husbands pasta dish was too salty and he was not able to finish his meal. The food was so fresh and the location was amazing. Outstanding wine!

20 yrs of friendship
A girlfriend and I were celebrating being friends 20 years and wanted to do a fabulous winery dinner. The hostess congratulated us on our 20 yrs while seating us. We were seated on the balcony at Summerhill Winery and almost immediately brought a complimentary mini appetizer. The food was great, the service impeccable (go Danya!!) and the view spectacular.

Beautiful setting with a great view, excellent service, interesting and delicious menu.

Wonderful lunch, view is beautiful
Menu is very creative, service very good. Summerhill wines compliment the dishes. Definitely recommend, view of the okanagan lake while dining is spectacular.

Spectacular Food and View
We loved the Charcuterie and Warm Wheat Bread Appetizer, followed by the Quadra Island Mussels. Both dishes were amazingly presented, fresh, and exceptionally flavorful.
We received very professional and warm service which very much enhanced our wonderful afternoon at Summerhill Pyramid Winery.
We can't wait to go back!

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Summerhill in a 2 month period and I was surprised to see that your menu hadn't changed at all and there were no special selections offered. I'm sure there were when we were there in July. Your dinner menu while good in having a variety of selections.. vegetarian etc. really is very short so we'll wait awhile before coming again.
On another minor point.. When a server brings the wrong wine, a glass of red rather than white, shouldn't they apologize for their error rather than saying.. oh that's no bother.. I'll take care of it, as if the customer had made the mistake?

Always a great dining experience
Great food and great wine. The service is usually very good. However, on more than one occasion I have had extras on my bill that were not ordered, including a second bottle of wine. Nevertheless, the Summerhill Winery is a personal favourite, and is highly recommended.

Excellent Sunday brunch! Great variety with lots of seafood. I would highly recommend this brunch. The view is outstanding.

Delicious brunch menu.
We went for the Sunday brunch buffet and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was marvelous - lots of variety, beautifully presented and delicious! The server was slow to come to our table when we first sat down, but was more attentive as the the meal progressed. We are looking forward to going again.

A room with a view
This bistro, attached to the Summerhill Winery, has never disappointed. Their duck confit just melts in your mouth, and the 4 cheese pizza with garlic sports entire roasted cloves on each slice. Do not eat before an important interview! I recommend the merlot as well--it has a certain something that really sets it aside from the rest.

We were at Summerhill during the Wine Festival so they had a 4 course meal offering that came with wine pairings. The food was outstanding and the wine was perfectly paired with each course. Would recommend the Arctic char as a main course!
