We were in town for the Cirque du Soleil event and thought we would give this place a try. Since moving to the okanagan 2 years ago, this was our best dinner we have had! Our waiter, Ted, was awesome! Everything about this place was amazing! I definitely recommend the gnocchi!! The building is gorgeous with a gorgeous setting! It makes you feel like you are in Europe!

This is such a gem of a restaurant in Penticton. The food was delicious. We ordered the Beef Carpaccio, Cioppino, and sausage and shrimp risotto. I would highly recommend all 3 of these dishes. Their dishes are all perfect for sharing. The view is also amazing; we plan on coming back sometime in the summer so we can sit on their beautiful patio that overlooks the lake on the top of the hill.

The service was fast, friendly, and efficient. The wine tasting was a delightful experience. The food was as good as any I have ever eaten. And the cost was quite reasonable. We will definitely return as soon as reasonably possible.

The Third time for us and the Hillside is great and also the wines in the tasting room area are great. A tad disappointing with the Calamari dish being overloaded with filler bread thus hardly any Calamari. Service was great - all round. Cheers, Terry

I read such good reviews on this place and was grossly disappointed! The wine and service was good. The food was awful! Definitely not restaurant quality. Wine and food are supposed to go hand in hand. There needs to be more pride taken in the kitchen to compliment the good wine.

Relaxed and easy dining. Carrot soup was delicious, very smooth and creamy. Lentle fritters were very tasty, both perfect for vegetarians. The arcic char was delicious according to my partner. This is our 3rd visit to the area and our 3rd visit to Hillside and the food is definitely worth returning for. Thank you.

Great food on the Naramata Bench with wonderful wines to accompany.
Very accommodating waiter. Unfortunately none of the sweeping view which compliments some of the nearby winery restaurants.
Great for foodies with some uniquely savory dishes

Enjoyed lunch with friends here. Lovely setting and the wine's delicious. It's a tapas style menu so very small portions. Keep that in mind and do the meal family style with several plates shared.

Really enjoyed your wines, especially the moscato which we purchase few bottles. Than had a nice quaint experience at the bistro. The calamari was excellent along side Pinot noir black cake pairing. Thank you

I am in love with the food at Hillside. Between the two of us we got the duck, the brie and the pulled pork pasta, and we shared everything. Sharing is the way to go so you can enjoy the variety of amazing flavours. We sat beside a group that had one dish to one person and I felt bad for them as they were having a delicious MEAL but missing out on a beautiful flavour EXPERIENCE. Sharing is caring.

this was my fourth visit and the least enjoyable. food was just ok but didn't live up to the hype or my expectations - perhaps because the previous years were sooo good! service was wonderful - Sarah our server - was a real delight. Sadly would only give it 2.5 or 3 out of 5 stars.
Pity as I had been so looking forward to our meal.

Was dining alone but as a treat to myself for my birthday. Service was not attentive. No water offered until I asked. Seemed that my main course was forgotten as I had to ask/remind staff that I was still waiting. Food not to the same level of quality as when I had visited 5 years earlier.

Very disappointing. Upon arriving, told they had run out of menus and we would have to wait. No big deal. But then we had to wait for cutlery. Ordered clams, that weren't properly cleaned, and was biting into sand. The risotto which should have been hot and creamy, was cold and watery. Best to avoid.
In fact, best to avoid altogether.
