A beautiful setting with mediocre food and limited menu.
Food was super yummy! Our waiter was very friendly and made the experience awesome!
It was hard to rate because it would have been a great rating except the lack of Gluten Free Options had an extremely negative impact on a birthday celebration. One of the individuals in our group is celiac and the menu no longer lists gluten free options. When she asked what her options were it was basically the ancient grain bowl, the salmon or halibut. We used to love to go to the Hooded Merganzer to celebrate special occasions however will not be returning again. This is the second time this has happened. The last time we went it was for lunch and after being told they could pretty well do anything gluten free at the end of the day the only option was a salad.
Because of the road closures, some of the vegetables were different, but very well done. The portions were huge!
The service was great and the food/drinks very good! The only reason why I haven't give 5 out of 5 is because there are not wheat free options (specifically bread/crackers). There are quite a few very acceptable options available these days and for such a high calibre restaurant, I was surprised that they did not have this base covered.
We loved this place, we came for or anniversary and staff was kind very helpful and the meal was TOP notch and worth every dollar.
Service was excellent, I will be coming back again
The steak tenderloin was amazing. The server was knowledgeable with her wine suggestions. The cost of wine per glass is expensive but I know that’s standard in the industry. It’s the third wedding anniversary celebration we have had there. Thanks
We suggested a move to a cozy banquette instead of table. Much better! Waitress very knowledgeable of local wines, vineyards, and vintners. We shared healthy portion of Cobb Salad ( with warm picked chicken) and a terrific chicken & ribs combo. Roche Pinot Noir paired well.
Beautiful dining room.
We like to come to Hooded Merganser for special occasions because it is consistently excellent and always meets or exceeds expectations. It's fairly pricey but we feel it's worth it when we want to treat ourselves.
Every detail was just fabulous
Awesome dinner as always !! Great way to spend a date weekend !
Our reservation was just when the sun was setting so the view from our table of the mountains and water was moody and beautiful. We had a lovely gentle server who really listened to our needs. Great dining experience thoroughly enjoyable - we will be back
Very pleased with the service and the decor. Would recommend to all.
Food quality was excellent. If you're a rib lover, try their rib dinner. Most excellent!
Unfortunately with Covid 19 it has been far to long since visiting. Glad to finally get the chance to be back. Great meal, excellent portions, fantastic service. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to returning soon.
Hi Jim! Thank you for your review! We look forward to hosting you in the future.
The server Wendy was great! The menu was limited. The calamari was fabulous as an appie. With all the veggies in it, it was a nice twist to the norm. My partner ordered the half and half and I ordered a half rack. His chicken was overcooked and dried out and the ribs were tender but were not very tasty. The sides that accompanied the ribs were excellent though.
Took my family to dinner here, and the service was phenomenal, the food was even better! Highly recommend this place to anyone, 5star!
We appreciate the review, Jerry! Can't wait to have you back!
Overall, the food was excellent and so was our waiter. However, it was loud and the fan created a flashing light situation. The waiter also didn’t know wine serving etiquette which was too bad.
Parts of the meal were quite good. Chicken was a bit dry but fries beans and cornbread were very good. It would be nice to see more choices on menu especially for appies
Still a great place to eat, situated right on the water so pretty nice views. Menu has been scaled back but understandable with the covid situation.
Nice place actually on the lake.
Sorry about the noise comment but I’m actually thinking it was us making all the noise! You humans are amazing and we will be back soon !
very enjoyable experience for the second time on a Paramount bus tour
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Our server was very friendly and professional.
Loved the restaurant but wished the tables were not so close together
Hey CarolY, Thank you for the stars and the review. Feel free to request booth seating next time you reserve if space would make you feel more comfortable. Look forward to seeing you again!
Service, food, staff was all above and beyond!!! Will recommend to everyone and we cant wait to return for another amazing dining experience
Hey LanaD. We are as pumped as you are that you visit was a hit. Get back here soon!
Great location- amazing view. Great food and great service.
4 for 4 = 5 from ManonC! Thank you for the review!
Lovely location. Reduced menu with less choices but food is good. Service is excellent, definitely one of my favourite places to eat on lake Okanagan.
Hey CalgaryExpat. Pssst, we are dropping a new menu this month that has more great options. Hope you deliver a 5 star experience for your next visit.
Everything was great with the exception of the kitchen staff as every single one of them had their mask on below their chin. Made our group feel insanely uncomfortable. Will not go back because of this.
Thanksgiving menu was excellent. Attentive staff. Thank you!
Thank you for joining us on this occasion!
This was our first time at this restaurant and we throughly enjoyed our dining experience. We had the Thanksgiving dinner they offered, we ordered a drink and got our soup at pretty much the same time. Wanted to enjoy our drink first so asked if they’d hold our dinner until we had our drink. Food was very good. Apple dessert was excellent. Lovely location overlooking the water,but it was a bit chilly.
Will definitely come again.
Hello JimC, Thank you for visiting us during our Thanksgiving service this year. We are happy to have taken care of you. It is also great that you have taken the time to write us some feedback. We always value opportunities to tweak things to land as close to perfect as possible! See you next time, Keith
Had a lovely meal. Wonderful service. Good food. Great setting with very nice ambience. Will definitely be back when we get the opportunity.
Hey JamesA, Your feedback reflects our intent to a T! Thanks for sharing. We will be ready when an opportunity allows you to visit again.
Food was very good as was the service would definitely return.
Great brie appy. Shared a rib dinner - way too much! Very kind of the restaurant to offer to plate for both of us.
Thanks for joining us ShellyL. We appreciate you!
We had an amazing dinner here! I had a curried halibut dish and my friends had the tenderloin and the salmon. Everyone was very impressed with the food and service. The manager brought us blankets as well.
Hey AnitaB, Thank you so much for the visit and the warm review. We appreciate you!
We were told this was the best restaurant in Penticton and so far it has been. What impressed us was how relaxed and not stuffy it was. Good selection of BC wines. My wife had halibut which was great, I had rack of lamb which was also great, spiced nicely and a good portion size.
Nice view of the lake and a patio (we sat inside).
We were so impressed we booked another reservation.
HI BKnight Thank you for taking the time to review us, much appreciated! Hope to see you again soon! Jedadiah
Friendly service and super delicious food! Our table located on the water was beautiful and the atmosphere was relaxed. We had mentioned it was our 20-year wedding anniversary so a dessert arrived with a candle in it. Very lovely!
HI Jason and Catherine Thank you for taking the time to review us, much appreciated! Hope to see you again soon! Jedadiah
Menu is limited and food was of average quality. Excellent service.
