Food very good, limited selection but excellent. Service amazing and friendly. Could be more observant of other tables as diners next to us were introducing themselves to each other and not wearing masks - so were not from same bubble.

One of our favorite places to go for a meal! Love the view and ambience. Food is great, although wine is pricey.

Very peaceful & lovely setting. Servers were friendly & did their job well. Food could have been better especially for the price. I'd recommend coming here based on the service, ambiance & professionalism especially since so many others places lack great service. My thought is that due to Covid - it's quite tough to maintain top tier food supply so my heart goes out to the restaurants trying their best.

For afternoon tea, there should be a greater selection. There was only 1 regular black tea (orange pekoe); the other 2 black teas were Earl Grey Cream - a very particular tea the rest were herbal which is not what high tea enthusiasts go for. For food, which was very good, I would remove at least one dessert and add another sandwich. The menu is heavily dessert focused and after scones with jam, one really doesn't need much more sugar. A little cookie would be fine. Service was ok but not polished. My husband's orange pekoe was served in a Japanese tea pot - save that for the green tea. Our server also brought our two heavy tea pots on one tray and we almost had two hot pots in our laps. It was precarious at best and dangerous at worst. Add some more teas and alter the menu and we'll be back because we the food was good.

After my father's death a week before Christmas, decided to have Christmas dinner at The El with my son. While the decor and lakeside ambience lovely, and service excellent disappointed in the dry, tough turkey! The sides and dessert delicious though. Kind of wonder if it was left overs from the take out dinners the day before. I brine my turkey at home and know how to roast a moist one. Kind of disappointing for the price...

Our server needed to stop continually touching his mask and pulling it forward. There was a feeling of unease at our table because of this, not sure why he did this every time he spoke. That leads me to believe that hand washing and sanitation was also not up to standards.
There was also a lack of communication where soups were concerned. We were not table of smaller portions and were brought large bowls followed by our dinner. Too much food!

We felt safe as the server wore a mask and kept her distance from us. The tables were spaced out so you were not close to anyone.
I had the steak and it was cooked perfectly to my liking. My partner had the trout and that too was excellent.
For dessert we choose the triple chocolate desserts and OMG I’m still dreaming about them.
By the way they make the best Lattes in Kelowna.
A lovely evening all round.

We have been dining at the El since 2014. Best experience yet !! Food was incredible start to finish. Quality presentation service cocktails ambiance ... perfect. It was a magical night. It’s great to see El dining putting the focus back on quality food. With too many high tourism years... locals found El had lost it’s consistency in the kitchen. Not anymore ... El chefs have made things right again. Well
Done. We look forward to paying patronage to this landmark establishment. They have earned our business again.

The Value food for.you money is not in it. The charcuterie board was well presented but the cheeses and meat taste more from superstore the the local home made one.
The burger was very poor in them of taste and the tenderloin was a not at is best for the price.
The wine was very good thank God but the waiter did not know anything about serving it.
Very expensive for what it was and disappointing.

Date night at The El was terrific. The steak frites were the best ever, and The Eldorado creme brule was a special finishing touch. The attentive service of Tyler made the evening wonderful!

We made a reservation for 12:30pm on Sunday; apparently this was the only time the dining room could accommodate us. When we arrived there was no room in the dining room. We were seated in the bar by ourselves. Our eggs Benedict were dry, did you run out of hollandaise sauce? Very poor.

went for our 10 year anniversary expecting good ambiance and fine food. can't blame the restaurant for the weather but the covering they put up to block wind for the outdoor seating really killed the ambiance. the food was not good, despite the menu implying that it is fine dining. we each ordered steaks and they were way overcooked and honestly not really recognizable as steak - i have had way better steak sandwiches from the neighborhood pub for a fraction of the price. we cut bait and picked up dessert from the grocery store after seeing the dessert we thought about ordering, getting delivered to the table beside us.

Had a very nice dinner at Lakeside, sitting on the enclose patio. I had the surf and turf special and the beef was the best I have had in Kelowna. Interesting memorabilia in the dining room and around the hotel in general. Would recommend for everyday or special occasion. The staff were very careful and cautious in this time of Covid.

Despite requesting dining in the restaurant we were first seated on the patio with a “bar menu”. We were then moved to a proper table after voicing displeasure. The food itself was quite good & delicious but no one explained what we were eating on our plates. Definitely not performance for “fine dining “.

Food was really good but the service was very slow, you had to wait for drinks, food and to get the bill. We had to ask other servers for help repeatedly. It was not that busy so not sure if that is a normal occurrence but it was a shame as the food was good and the location excellent. If it was a normal occurrence then would not recommend just go to Smack Dab next door excellent everything!

First time when I had fish and chips it was served raw with batter oozing. I told the server this time of my past experience with hope that this time it would be rectified. Fish and chips are a treat for me and a favorite. This time it was delicious, crispy outside and flaky inside, perfect. Special thanks go to the server.
