Lakeside Dining Room - Hotel Eldorado
Always a fine dining experience here! We took my mum from out of town for a special brunch, she loved looking at the old photographs on the wall and dining looking out over he water. Service was fantastic as always!
Food was excellent, waiter, Vince, was a bit loud and full of himself
Very disappointed, ordered the steak medium rare, and got a well done steak. I didn’t want to send back, as I was there with family and didn’t want to ruin the evening. By me sending my dish back and having to wait for new dish. Server never even asked why the steak wasn’t eaten.
Shame, last experience there was wonderful.
Perfect place to enjoy the Okanagan water front and old world charm
Food was awful, service slow even though restaurant completely empty, mods not done correctly, cold extremely over cooked eggs, terrible coffee, was not asked once how our food was/experience, debit didn’t work when leaving. Booked this for our anniversary breakfast.
Will absolutely not return
We visited from Alberta and had a steak that would rival that in the most elite Alberta steakhouse - simply divine. Attentive service and a beautiful view of the water. Our waiter was kind and personable but did not write down our order and a few things were missed in the service. We will be back!
View is awesome, food was mediocre and expensive. I had the appie chicken satay, 4 very small skewers of greasy chicken and luckily came with a small salad salad for $19.
Haven’t been for a couple years but definitely expected better food for the money.
All good will be back
The food was good, but the hot items weren’t very hot! (Potatoes, bacon, waffles, pancakes etc). Our server was a nice guy, but kind of slow. He didn’t clear plates in a timely manner. We would go up to the buffet for another helping the the plates were still there. I’ve been to brunch her many times, and usually the El hits it out the park. Sunday wasn’t the usually experience for me. I will still come back!
We were celebrating our 20th anniversary!
The service and the food was excellent! And dessert was complimentary which was a nice touch!
Our favourite place for special occasions!
Noise level was very high for a place we considered fine dining. It was cool outside but the doors opening to the exterior were open leaving the dining room and us quite chilled as well. Doors closed eventualy.
Enjoyed the food and service but won't be returning until warmer weather allows use of the patio where we could hold a conversation comflortably.
My husband and I both had the highly recommended striploin. Highly disappointed. My steak was closer to well done than the medium rare requested. I took a bite and thought it might be just more done at the end so worked my way in. My husband's was perfect. I'm angry with myself for not calling the waiter but I was hungry and the place was busy and I didn't want to wait for another piece while my husband was enjoying his meal. By the time the waiter checked on us, I resolved myself to finishing and had already eaten through half so too late to complain. I wouldn't have complained here now except I was livid when I came across my husband's receipt and found that we were double billed for wine.
Excellent ambiance......looking out at Okanagan Lake is beautiful. Jarrod our waiter was fantastic.....he definitely made the evening memorable: besides being informative, professional, friendly, attentive and a great waiter, he came across as an all round good person, reading our group to a “T”. Food was excellent although maybe a tad over priced. But if you keep this venue as a “special occasions only”, then its doable. Great evening and I think we impressed our Alberta friends. We will be back on our next special occasion.
We were very disappointed by the menu at Eldorado and it was overpriced for what they offered. When we walked in we were not greeted for at least 10 minutes. There was about 3 employees that walked by and said nothing while we waited.
The ambiance is nice, but the food menu does not reflect that so it was a big let down when a majority of the menu was burgers and sandwiches.
Vince is an amazing waiter!
Great location on the water. Building has great character. Not crowded. Wait staff were getting the feet wet in preparation of the busy summer season. Osso Bucco was a huge hit. Everything else was great too. Didn't make the Whiskey Bar as we where full from all the good food. Will definitely go back.
This restaurant sits on the water overlooking a Marina. It has old world charm that is reflected in the beautiful linens, cutlery, and stem-ware. It is a classic setting with excellent service. We shared the mussels appetizer which was more than enough for two. Heather our wait-staff was very attentive but not over-bearing so we could have a good visit with our lunch dates. I will return.
Food was excellent, server was very knowledgeable and attentive. Nice view of the lake and ambiance was conducive for a conversation. Portions were quite small, especially the appetizers, but the flavours were fantastic.
Great service and care to customer. Very much enjoyed tonight.
Fantastic food and great wine list for all tastes. Server was very personable and made a fabulous recommendation for wine. Love the Eldorado!
The setting is beautiful with the lake in the background. The dining area was quiet and relaxing. The service was unbelievable... the server (Heather) was knowledgeable and friendly.
It was a lovely way to spend Valentines! We had a reservation for 7:30 but my husbands plan arrived late. The ladies at the front desk where so amazing and made it work for us even though we were late. The dinner was spectacular!
As noted, overall we were very pleased. We had enjoyed dining there previously with out of town friends and they too rated overall as excellent. Suggestion for what it is worth. I had the Fish & Chips (single) and felt the serving was far too much. Fries took up 3/4 of the plate, and while this is only a potato it is a shame that soo much goes to waste over the period of a year. Perhaps a few less fries, and less going into the land fill, otherwise keep doing what you are doing, including keeping the most pleasant serving staff.
Our server Jared was great! Attentive but but not intrusive. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was good, not great. Nice quiet atmosphere but not stuffy quiet.
My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. Our server, Vincent, was friendly and knowledgable and made our evening feel quite special! The food was delicious and though the prices are on the higher side, it’s totally worth it for the quality of the meal. Overall a great experience!
Upscale dining is rarely in our budget, but my husband and I received a gift card for Christmas, so off we went! It was Jan 2, so the dining room was empty, and we had the full attention of our server, who told us the history of the hotel. Although most of the original structure has been replaced, it retains an air of 1930s elegance, and many vintage photos are displayed. Prices were high, but the food was delicious and portion sizes were satisfying. I was impressed by the way our wine was poured: with a formal introduction and a flourish! It was a special experience.
For $89 on New Year's Eve, price didn't reflect well with our meals. Portions were just ok. Everything was luke warm including the consomme that was added from a tea pot right at the table so it should've been hot. My Beef Tenderloin was inconsistent with the doneness. It went from medium rare to blue rare and again luke warm. I had ordered it medium rare. My girlfriend's breast of duck was greasy and tough. It was my fault for not asking the price of the Sunday Brunch but $94 for 2 people is way to expensive. It would've been included with our New Years Eve package but the sales department hadn't had it organized till after the 1st of December. Were expecting the same amazing Singer/DJ as last year but unfortunately it was a regular DJ and again the $50 per person did not warrant it. On the great part, all staff were very friendly and the Beds and Pillows are to die for! Unfortunately, we will be looking for a different venue next New Years.
I have two complaints;
I booked on line. At that time, there was a link to the Menu. I checked it and it was the standard menu. Somewhat expensive but OK for New Year's Eve. A day or two before our dinner, I received an email reminder, again with a link to the Menu. I checked it and it was the same as previous. Upon arrival, we were presented with the New Year's Eve special menu which provided limited choices for a three course dinner at a cost of $89.00 plus plus per person. Considerably more than we had planned to spend. I asked for the standard menu and was told it was not available.
The food was pretty much a bust. The appetizer was lousy, the main course was so-so (we had beef tenderloin. My wife's was good, mine was full of gristle), the desert was excellent. The service was excellent. Noise level was high. The price of wine was out of this world.
One of the most beautiful and cozy restaurants in Kelowna, with great quality food and amazing service!
The food was delicious and our server Vincent was excellent! Just found it a bit expensive but we were there for our anniversary so we splurged ❤️
Way over-priced. A skimpy Caesar salad was $16.00 when it should have been $9.00. The vegetarian option on the menu was quite poor in taste.
We enjoyed our evening immensely
Thank you kindly
Very clean and comfortable. Location was excellent. Good options in the menu but prices are high even for a fine dining restaurant, flavour and presentations were standard for most restaurants, it was nothing really amazing, just good. Sub par service for a fine dining restaurant. We ordered wine, and the supervisor/manager poured the glass without a wine description. Our server was not attentive.
Saturday night dinner out. Had the Lamb Sirloin with a glass of Oculus and my wife chose the Rossini (beef tenderloin topped with Foie Gras) and paired it with a glass of Note Bene. This truly was a meal to remember, love the fact that you can have a glass of high caliber wine without having to buy the bottle. The restaurant and lounge have a really relaxing atmosphere, cool, laid back and sophisticated. Love the place, never disappoints.
Lovely meal, the chefs take on surf and turf was awesome. Treated very well by our server. Great place to celebrate an anniversary.
Nice atmosphere, friendly service and decent food but overpriced. The butternut squash soup and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. It’s a good place for special occasions, but there are better value options in the city
Outstanding meal all around. Service, food, atmosphere, music all combined created an unbelievable dinner with friends and colleges. Okanagan wine selection is outstanding. Will definitely return again and again.
Elegant but relaxed . Value for money . Book early .
Fabulous evening with friends. Great food, attentive waiter, wonderful view and we could hear each other talk!! Perfect.
