    Felt like family night at Swiss Chalet, too noisy, not the romantic ambience we were expecting. Soup was good but not spectacular, steak was very average (our neighborhood bistro does it better at half the price).

    Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Food was very good, although the consensus was that scallops were served with too many peas. The pairings were an excellent choice and matched the food well. The view was spectacular and I will return as often as I can

    We had lunch at the Vineyard. Stephen our server was very well versed in his suggestion of a great wine to have with our Halibut. Saying that the food was beyond Delicious. We are in the area every year and this is one of my favorite stops. The location and scenery are spectacular. I suggest that this winery everyone must Experience.

    After taking one of the tours at Mission Hill, we had lunch at the Terrace. True to its name, it's all covered outdoor seating overlooking some of their vines. As per the tour video, the vision for the restaurant was to create a space that serves optimal food pairings for their wines. They did an excellent job. I had their scallop salad and a glass of their recommended pairing - the Riesling - and together it was quite an experience; the off-dry fruitiness of the wine really was showcased by the sweetness of the fresh peas, picked at a farm not too far from the restaurant. The staff were exceedingly knowledgeable, both on the wine and food fronts, and were perfectly attentive - never an empty glass or overbearing presence. It was great.

    Olives were more pit than meat and much too salty, though abundant in amount. Green salad very uninteresting. Halibut itself beautifully prepared, but vegetables bland and not distinct flavour. Lamb pasta enjoyable and well spiced. Linguini very long and hard to manage. Octopus was a bit tough and hard to cut, again not well spiced for flavour. Reisling wine pleasing to palate. Definitely needed more chilling before being served. Server excellent. Had to request more bread and butter.

    Mission Hill is a stunning winery. The beautiful architecture teamed with the curious/somber art and breathtaking view created such a delicious mystical ambience. The food was commendable and I still think about the lamb fettuccine to this day! It was a memorable experience and I would definitely recommend this place to others.

    We booked a table online with no trouble the day we entertained the thought of dining at Mission Hill. We had 2 recommendations from friends so we pulled the trigger. It was a hot evening and very comfortable on the Terrace. Our server was Adam and he guided us through the menu, history of the kitchen, and wine list. The sun went down up over the hill behind us so we saw the lake bathed in light as we drank wine that was paired nicely with our appetizers and main dishes. We had lamb and halibut and both were decadent and perfectly cooked. We finished with a cheese plate and left feeling content with our great dining experience.

    With such an amazing view, I couldn't believe i was seated with my back to it! My husband saw the view as he was across the table from me, but even then, he was sitting just a little bit too low. That was my first impression and not too impressed. Actually, I was ticked! Not sure how you could change that but quite a disappointment it was! Service was wonderful from our server. Food was so-so, nothing to scream about. Not bad, though. Wine of course, was great!. We do not have a problem paying top dollar for a dinner. We do however, when going to a place with a view totally expect one. in my opinion, you can not run a restaurant on good wine alone.

    The vIew and setting is spectacular. The food was very good although I have to say I had the special pasta with braised beef. The sauce was good, the pasta was good but there was hardly any beef in it. Also thought the wine by the glass was fairly expensive at first glance. The overall lunch though was very good.

    I'm not sure whether it's the amazing architecture, the panoramic view of the Okanagan Valley or the fact that the restaurant is so top-notch that makes things feel a little surreal when I visit the Terrace for lunch. Every single morsel of food served by the most professional and warm staff makes me feel like a giddy kid in a sweet shop. We've been lucky enough to have birthday dinners there and bring friends who are visiting from the UK and just swing by for lunch when we feel extra decadent and everybody, without exception has left feeling peaceful, pampered and better for the experience. Just wonderful!

    Set on a hillside overlooking lake okanagan, with meals prepared using relatively local components, the experience is second to none. Although there is no vegetarian option included on the menu, the chef surprised me with an outstanding medley of local vegetables over black lentils with a brioche. Completely satisfied with the meals and the price.

    Four of us ate here for dinner. We really enjoyed the frites, cheese plate and desserts; the main entrée was pretty good but too expensive for what you get (taste wise and size wise). If I go back, I would skip the main entrée and order appetizers, cheese and dessert - and wine of course! If you want to really enjoy the view, which is beautiful, I would go for lunch as it seems that the screens are not up at lunch as often as they are for dinner. Do order dessert here.

    Coming to Mission Hill Terrace is always a highlight of my trip. The food was good overall, however, my personal taste would have preferred my choice of food with less of the alioli and jam. The wine pairing was very good. The service was superb. Overall, I found the food choices not on the same level as experienced before. I realize that the menus changes with local availability and it may not have been my day. All in all, we, 3 of us, had a great experience.

    In the Okanagan Valley, the restaurant at Mission Hill is simply the best there is! This is no small matter since, in recent years, there have grown up a number of excellent restaurant venues, most of them in association with wineries. Mission Hill has clearly made it their business to stay at the top of the group and, in my opinion, they have succeeded in doing so. If you want a special place to dine, this is it!

    Great view and stunning winery. I ordered a salad and the hen entree. The salad was very good but the hen and was very disappointing. Hen breast was not tender and the rolled thigh/brown meat was not very tasty. I don't think I would return even to try a different dish. The quality of the food was certainly not worth the $$$$
