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! See attached photos
Excellent food,service and wine
The food and wine and service were all excellent. It doesn't get any better than this.
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.
One of the few winery associated restaurants in the South Okanagan that has been very good every time I have visited.
Excellent service , food and wine.
Hillside is always one of my favourite restaurants.
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.
Thanksgiving weekend meal. Food was exceptional as was service. In particular the pumpkins dessert was amazing.
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.
Delicious food and great ambiance. This is my 3rd time eating here and I have never been disappointed.
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.
Food was good although limited food options / selections.
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.
Exceptional, creative food at this winery restaurant. Ambience outdoors and in is really nice. If you are looking for a relaxing place to have some great food, look no further.
We will return! Coffee was good, bread was good and the salads were great!! If those are good, the food will be too and it was!!
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.
Food was good, but slow service. May need more waiters some nights in order to have serviced clients more efficiently and in a timely manner.
Delicious food and wine, beautiful scenery and attentive service.
If pork belly is on the menu, just order it.
Very down-to-earth winery bistro with large selection of tapas, some large enough for a main. Fantastic scenery, tasty food, and a warm atmosphere thanks to an excellent staff. A keeper!
Lovely place to be and enjoy delicious food and good wine!
We had another fabulous lunch at Hillside winery and Bistro.
The view from the patio is amazing.
The menus has some amazing delight and was prepared impekably.
It's a must for anyone in the area.
Delicious small and hearty bites able to share. Every dish was tasty and the Hillside wine that we paired with the food was perfect. Service attentive--just right. Fantastic setting in unique building with extraordinary views.
2nd time here in the last month. This is quickly becoming our favourite place to take our out of town guest's. Great food, great service, and a awesome view of the South Okanagan Sunset.
We will be back soon...
Kids portions were a little small. Needed to order seconds.
Strange people dancing and recording themselves. A little uncomfortable to watch.
Everything was superb!!!
The view was a true treasure as is the building. But the food is more then wonderful. Had the Artic Char and the Chicken something salad (can't remember). So good. Also the Key Lime Pie was amazing
This place was top shelf. Really enjoyed it and prices were reasonable
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings...very good AND great value for the money
Great food, nice view. Next time, we'll ask for a table on the patio.
I went here with a big group of friends 2 years ago and really liked it. They haven't changed much and the staff are super friendly. Very accommodating. The food is really good! Great view of the water and the hills. Paintings on the wall are beautiful.
Awesome food and service. A little more shade is needed during lunch hours.
Food was well prepared had great taste all came at the correct time. Would recommend to couples or groups for a great lunch and relaxing time with friends.
Fantastic. Amazing view, service and delicious food. We had the tasting menu for two with wine pairings. A truly lovely evening. Our server "Ted" 😀 was fantastic and accommodating - sweet and funny. What more could you ask for !!! We are from far away but would come back specifically to eat here
