    We have dined here a number of times before for lunch and always look forward to the deep sigh of relief we always feel after we sit down, look out over the lake, and raise a glass to toast the fact that we have taken some time off work to slow down and smell the roses, so to speak. This time was certainly no exception. It was our first dinner out on the terrace and the food, the wine, the service and the ambiance (the view and the sunset) were just as amazing as we hoped they would be. Certainly a dinner we will not soon forget, and we will look forward to the opportunity to dine again there next year as soon as they are open.

    We spent our one-year anniversary here and the experience was out of this world. The entire property was beautiful (even in the rain) and all the staff were incredibly friendly and generous. Once we got the the restaurant, we were shown to a table with a beautiful view (they all have great views) and our server had fun stories to accompany the courses. The food and the wine was superb, and we even got an extra treat to make sure we had an extra special time. They really know how to do it right.

    Dined on 9/19/2014
    I was a wine club member for three years. I have found that Mission hills red wines have been declining. We booked a later supper and had the pasta special and the pork loin. Both were average. The truffle frits, smoked olives and our other appys were great. I had a $25 dollar glass of red that was very average. Then a $16 dollar glass of Pinot Noir that i could barely finish. The servers put sparkling water in our distilled water glasses. We asked for new waters and it took a long time. Not a great experience for a restaurant that should be world class. The table beside us complained about there halibut and were given a free desert.

    This is our 2nd or 3rd time eating here. There is no doubt that the restaurant is one of the very best on the west coast. I can't recommend it highly enough. The food is creative and delicious, the staff is knowledgeable and more than competent. I should be on the top of anyone's list in the Okanagan area.

    My heirloom tomato salad was delicious, but small for $15. My wife's appetizer was more reasonable in size. We shared the charcuterie plate, which was also tasty. That was lunch, including 2 glasses of wine, for just over $100 including tip.

    We were lucky enough to get reservations as we celebrated our 11th anniversary while we were in town. The setting was perfect on the hilltop overlooking Okanagan Lake. The service was outstanding with the hosts and the servers. We had a selection of appies and drinks and were lucky to sample a taste of their Merlot ice wine (highly recommend). It was an unforgettable nite as the sun set and enjoyed the landscape and architecture of Mission Hill.

    The setting is great, the service was attentive and well informed. The fish was a little overcooked to my taste but still good. I just think the prices are a bit over the top compared to other terrific winery restaurants. Still enjoy coming here though.

    Stephen was a great server-very knowledgeable. I had braised lamb, companions ordered steak/frites and char. The "frites" that accompanied my meal, were the dregs that one one find in the bottom of the fry bin. Too many overcooked, dried bits of frites. Each dish was totally tasteless! No flavour whatsoever in any of the meals. The chef does not seem able to employ any of the typical methods to introduce flavour to otherwise fine quality ingredients. Hugely disappointing for such an incredible location with such excellent service.

    Wow! Absolutely fantastic! The food was fantastic, I had the halibut and have never had a better piece of fish. The wine pairing suggestion was bang on. My husband had the steak frites and it was also fantastic, amazing fries and the steak was like butter. Our server Bradley was wonderful. We paid with gift cards though, and there wasn't an option to leave a gratuity. We only had $10 cash, but wanted to leave more. So make sure you bring cash if you plan to pay with a gift card. All of the staff were friendly and hospitable! Happy to have had a reservation though, as it was a busy place!

    We return every year and this season did not disappoint. There has been a change in the executive chef so the menu was a little different than last year, but still featured local ingredients and was designed around the Mission Hill wines. The quality of food was very good and we had an excellent server. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful, sunny day to enjoy the view from and dinning on the terrace. Really enjoyed a perfectly cooked sous vide steak with a 2010 Oculus, which definitely needs many years to reach full potential.

    Went for the Sommelier wine tasting and tour, and stayed for a fabulous gourmet lunch. The housemade pasta was fantastic, and the carrot ginger soup one of the best we've ever had! Fantastic complimentary amuse bouche followed by a three course lunch and a couple glasses of wine came to around $125 with gratuity for two people. Pricey for lunch but you will not regret it! Fantastic view of the mountains and lake, but make sure to ask for a lakeside table, and consider making a reservation in advance.

    The dinner was overpriced and the food was a big disappointment. When the French fries,,, tossed in truffle oil are the big excitement at the table you know there is a problem. The entrees were a taste disappointment. (The artic char, halibut and pork. ) The appetizer salad was a soggy mess. The best part of the evening was the company we were with and the waitress was very sweet.

    The service as usual was impeccable but was disappointed with the meal compared to my last visit. I arrived 5 minutes early and they told me to come back at the reservation time even though I got seated at the table that was already laid out and empty. But the waiter with his excellent service made up for the hostess's gaffe. The steak was overcooked and I had to send it back. The replacement had a lot of gristle. Overall the mains was disappointing. The cheesecake from Kira made up for the shortcomings of the entrée. It was one of the best (cheesecake) dessert I have had. The view and the setting of the restaurant cannot be beat and it is worth the experience even if your food turns out to be mediocre.

    When I booked lunch here I expected a great view that you pay for. I didn't have high expectations for the food. I expected it to be touristy and over priced. While the menu is definitely expensive (for lunch) the food more than delivered. Everything we had was fantastic and if recommend to anyone spending the day wine tasting and looking for somewhere beautiful with great food and service!

    I loved everything about this restaurant! The waitress was very tentative. Appetizer: We did not order any appetizer but they offered us bread and a plum/strawberry taster. Entree: I has the pasta special; which was linguini with vege and lamb; tomato cream sauce and my girlfriend ordered the wild salmon. She ordered a glass of wine, which complimented the salmon. Dessert: The Dessert was the highlight of the evening! It was cheese with blueberries and biscuits! Overall, we both enjoyed the dinner. I would recommend this place to EVERYONE!

    We told the server that it was a wedding anniversary and so we wanted to take our time dining. After we placed our drink and appy order she told us that the kitchen would only accept our appy order if we placed our main entree order at the same time. So we had to rush to select our entree order which was provided shortly after our appy. A kitchen's need for convenience should not come before a client's specific request. Three loud kids at the next table did not make for a calm or relaxing dinner. The view from the dining area was spectacular - food was good. The server took an inordinate amount of time explaining each drink and food item both ingredients and how it was prepared. Unlikely that we'll be back...

    Wonderful lunch menu when we visited, top notch service and delicious food. The view was beautiful and it's easy to see why they are so busy. My only criticism is that the value for money isn't all there as far as portion size is concerned. The salad I had was simple but tasty. Interesting to see a sous vede egg.

    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.
