    We enjoyed the view, the fine wine and the well trained staff but we thought that for $200 the salmon shouldn't have been this dry and the lamb should have been presented otherwise. It wasn't bad so we didn't send it back and didn't inform staff about it but for that price it should have been perfect. We both had a starter, a main, 2 glasses of wine and 1 glass of dessert wine. We had a nice evening but wouldn't go back.

    Right from the moment we arrived, the service and atmosphere were outstanding. Our server was very knowledgeable about both the food and the wine pairings. When we asked for a suggestion for a different pairing for an appetizer, she gave a thoughtful, considered response. The food was very well prepared, flavourful and beautifully presented. Only negative, and it's not something you really have any control over, was that the food cooled off rather quickly in the outdoor setting.

    We brought out of town clients for dinner. They were "overwhelmed" by the experience. It left a very favourable impression on our clients and is a great way to promote the Okanagan in general. The combination of the scenery, & dinning experience make it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the experience.

    We celebrated our anniversary at MH Terrace Restaurant and it was special. The food was excellent although we would have liked to have seen a chocolate item on the dessert menu to compliment the excellent wines. Since it was our anniversary, the staff treated us to a special tour and took photos for us. Definitely worth going back to

    The view from The Terrace could rival any European vineyards. The chef used fresh local and house-grown ingredients in the dishes so you could taste the goodness of the vegetables. The homemade-pasta-of-the-day with pulled pork was paired with a sauce that does not overwhelm the dish but gives a well balanced taste to the fettuccine. Another steak dish was well seared on the outside but cooked to a medium rare on the inside (as we have requested). Our third entree was the halibut, which was creatively decorated with edible flowers, would be most appropriate for the romantic setting. It was well seared on the top yet the fish is moist and tasty. Of course, the meal would be incomplete if not for the Legacy Flight trio and the Icewine.

    Service is excellent, views are great, staff well trained. We were four guys and ordered many items off the menu. Most plates impressive. Two of us were really disappointed with the steak. Toughest most terrible piece of meat. The sauce was excellent, but veggies were ok, not good-great or excellent. All our appetizers were great to excellent. We tried 6-7 different wines...excellent! Bread was excellent, but we had the option of asking for more. We would have preferred if the waiter offered instead. We didn't ask for more. Cheese plate was excellent! Dessert was mediocre. It would have been great to have some type of chocolate option for dessert, it would have been great with some wine. Overall good experience! We expected excellent...

    The appetizer (smoked salmon), homemade pasta, trout, and steak were all excellent. We were not so sure about the desserts. Nice try but did not come together. Wine from this winery is OK, but expensive. If you do not get seated by the river side of the restaurant, you cannot see the outside view. Architect did not think about that. Service was excellent.

    Very disappointed. Unfriendly service. Throwing cutlery on the table. Didn't wait for all guests to arrive at the table before start serving wine and bread. Start serving main dishes when 1/2 of the guests were not at the table. Main dish - grilled salmon-too salty. I can only taste salt on salmon skin on the first bite, but no taste in the meat. The salmon overlooked. The lamb too dried also. The salad and veggies were sweet and fresh. Dessert is very tasty, but bad presentation.

    Although we don't like the wine of this winery, this restaurant was picked because of the beautiful photos on the company's website. The outside look of the restaurant is very unique and the location is perfect, overview the vinyard and the lake. Unfornately, we got seated at the far side and didn't get the best view of the breathtaking scenic. The food was great. Even my mom who doesn't enjoy very much non-asian cuisine and usually left a few items untouched, did finish everything on the plate. Great service, explained each single dishes when served. If I lived in Kelowna, it would definitely be my most favorite restaurant. Just one little flaw, the restaurant didn't get my reservation that I booked online through OpenTable.

    Cuisine was very good with an excellent mix of herbs, spices, etc. Found salmon to be a little "dry" - had to cut off and leave all the edges. Waiter was a little "condescending" at the beginning of our meal but did improve as the evening went on. Desserts were awesome!! Chairs could be a little more comfortable. Would return.

    Fine cuisine in a breath taking location. Definitely a place to stop when you are in Kelowna, the dishes are a feast for the eyes and the belly! Obviously every dish is accompanied with a suggested wine from one of the Mission Hill family of wineries which makes for an exceptional dinner experience. The "army" of cooks prepare dishes fast and professionally.

    My most recent visit to the Terrace Restaurant at Mission Hill Winery was an incredible experience. The location and view from the restaurant is stunning as it overlooks the lake Okanagan and the rustic hillsides with orchards and rolling vineyards. The restaurant staff were very knowledgeable about the food and wine selections and offered great suggestions on pairings. I ordered the fresh pasta and it was a delight! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    We made this reservation several months ago in anticipation of our upcoming trip to the wine country of BC from the east coast of the U.S. Having said that, I would have expected a table by the edge, overlooking the vineyards. That was not to be. The meal was excellent, but the ambience could have been better, especially with our advance planning. This was a disappointment. We did ask to be seated by the outer edge, but we were declined. Not good customer relations.

    Disappointing
    Dined on 8/5/2014
    With visitors from Ottawa, the dining experience was disappointing. I asked for a view table - which was ignored. A view side table remained empty all evening. We came at 6:30 and the table across from us was empty until 8:00 - their reservation was obviously more important than ours. We asked to be moved but that did not happen. The menu was very limited and expensive. The server made an error and thought that octopus was shellfish so when a shellfish allergy was mentioned and an additional request was made to remove the octopus, the dish had octopus. The misting continued for at least an hour after arrival making the environment cooler than necessary. My guests did not leave with a good impression - certainly not value for money.

    I have worked in the restaurant industry for 10 years and I must say that the view and ambience leaves little to be desired. The food I'm afraid was a disappointment. The location and reputation of this winery restaurant must always strive to dazzle it's guests. I got the feeling that the effort was lacking and the retaurant might be getting lazy due too many good reviews and recommendations. This restaurant needs to go above and beyond and not just settle for the ordinary.

    The first time to the restaurant - we took out of town guests. The food was outstanding - the service was awesome - we never had to look for a waiter for assistance they were always present. The food was so good - fresh - cooked perfectly - really a wonderful experience which we took the time to let the chef know. Will definitely be back and will watch for the next outdoor concert.
