About Hooded Merganser at Penticton Lakeside Resort
The Hooded Merganser was designed to provide guests with a lakeside experience like no other. Vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows have made us the place to be during storm watching season. The outdoor patio is incredible during the warmer months. The menu features delicious contemporary cuisine cooked to perfection in the open kitchen. Enjoy the superb selection of hard-to-find Okanagan wines from our cellars. Tie up your boat at the marina and come in for a truly enjoyable time.

Hooded Merganser at Penticton Lakeside Resort Ratings and Reviews
Enjoy coming there always, friendly staff and great atmosphere! Would love to see more seafood on the menu and not just for special occasions. Great place for friends, couples &( families) before 8pm. Lol! Will be checking out the evening specials more often!😊
We rarely eat out due to my wife's severe food allergies. The server and chef's were very diligent and understanding of her condition. They were thorough with the ingredients and mitigated any possible ingredient cross contamination. That attention to detail resulted in a wonderful evening of flavorful vegetarian dishes , great local wine, and an always cozy & intimate atmosphere. Well done crew! We'll definitely be back soon!
On-the-water setting and view is stunning during the day. Service was professional and mature. Wine and beer selection are decent. They've changed the menu and food reviews at our table varied from average to good. One person thought the ribs were average, another thought them good, my meal was average and a fourth thought his meal was quite lovely. A mixed bag. Worth trying.
Always love the ambiance at the Hooded Merganzer. My won ton soup had uncooked chewy won tons. When I sent it back and received it again they were still chewy. The dynamite roll rice was crunchy not soft. But everyone knows we will be back because you can’t beat the beautiful setting.
I love the Merganser, however the one thing that can ruin a lunch is the music being too loud. We asked the serving staff to turn it down as we couldn't have a conversation because of the loudness.
Music - background - not dominant. Change the volume and you have a perfect venue.
We were visiting Penticton, and although it wasn't the first visit, it was the first time at HM.
We had a booth facing the water, and the view was fabulous. The service was excellent, our server very friendly and attentive. The food was very good, although the Thai curry was just a tad too spicy for me. But I could have ordered it a little milder if I had wanted to. Overall a great dinner -- would definitely go back again.
We were dining with7 of us, 2 people with serious celiac disease. We chose the Hooded Merganser because they had several gluten free options. We asked our server about gluten free options and we made her aware 2 were seriously allergic to gluten. However upon ordering, one of our group with celiac received sausage in his meal and after asking we were told that there was indeed gluten in the meat. He had to have his meal replaced and we were half finished our meals when his finally arrived.
Another wonderful evening at the Hooded Merganser! The service was impeccable, the food delicious. Our server Chris was very helpful, able to answer any questions we had. The live music was a pleasant surprise, and just added to the enjoyment of the evening. We have never been disappointed at the Hood.
The menu selection is some what limited and has deteriorated over the last couple of years.
My wifes meal was cooked properly but mine was under cooked.
The wine prices are out of line, $45 for a $22 bottle of local (Penticton) wine.
If it wasn't for the service and the view, it would have been a non memorable evening.
As far as vegetarian options go the restaurant had one on the menu and it was passable at best. They should also do something about the fruit flies. We had to keep the wine bottle capped and napkins over our glasses. With such a great location they can do better to enhance the ambience
We made a reservation at this restaurant because we had celebrated my sister's birthday there 2 years ago and had a great experience. Celebrating my sister's milestone birthday this year we thought it would be great to return to the same restaurant. This visit was a disappointment to us - there was no live music and the food was just okay. 🙁
after being seated at our table we were ignored..i had to flag down a manager to get service.
my friend ordered the ceaser salad and made a comment to our waiter that the salad had way to much garlic in it..the waiter made a comment that it is a ceaser salad after all..a good waiter would have apologized and gotten another salad.
Friend get together vis6itong from Ottawa and Calgary here in the Okanagan. Despite the smoke,y skies,..tne service, food and great atmospbere was what we were after to showcase. Our 4th visit in 6 weeks with good friends that we were not disappointed with.
Thanks and see you again ,..
