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.

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.

As always the Eldorado is in a perfect location with excellent food and service. The noise level in the dining room was unbearable. Two larger tables were in full swing competing with each other to be heard. With the patio doors closed it was impossible to have a romantic date with my wife.

It was my birthday and they never made mention of the occasion once.

The food was very poor quality meat cuts that you would not even be expected at a cheap steakhouse!!!!

Experience was unacceptable for the price of the restaurant food. Seemed liked they figured the view would take care of everything:(

Booked for dinner to celebrate 47th Wedding Anniversary. Ordered a virgin Pina Colada, and bar didn't have coconut milk. If customers were important, someone could go to store and purchase. Our server was very good, but he got little support. The wrong meal was delivered to our table. Had to wait for my meal to be prepared. A bit later, saw the meal delivered to a neighbor table, Not much class.

Living in Kelowna I have always loved the Eldorado for brunch or nice dinner on the lake, However we were not impressed with the menu selection. 4 of us and we ordered the charcuterie, cheese board, Tuna, Calamari and 2 flatbread. Calamari and Tuna were great the rest of the items mediocre in taste and over priced
the menu was different then what is shown on open table and $2 more per item as well. service for beverages were slow but overall service was great. always enjoy the nice view though. Hope the menu selection improves.

But it was noisy, too noisy for a conversation.
Would return in the summer when outdoor seating is available, might be quieter?

when reserving our table, only later seatings were available - we chose 8:30pm. Upon arriving there were a few people seated and many empty tables. The resaurant faces the lake and even at night has a view of lights. We were seated next to a wall beside the server station - a seat best described as the absolute last one you would want in the dining room. We asked to move and were quickly and easily accomodated. To start, I had the scallops with pancetta which was absolutely fantastic. presentation was beautiful and it left me wanting more! 2 med size scallops & slice of pancetta on a bed of saffron risotto - $19.00. My husband enjoyed the surf & turf ravioli for $20. We both chose special entree's - I had lamb which was good and the cod was just OK - on the dry side. Rounding off the meal - macarons and a special coffee - total bill for 2 was $185.00. Most disappointing was what should have been the star - the ambience. First with the initial seating, followed by the set-up of the tables for morning breakfast while we were still finishing our meals. While one would expect the occasional set-up - every table was a bit much. With so many farm to table options in the Okanagan with gifted chefs at this price point, we wont be back for dinner but may return for a summer sipper for the setting and historic hotel alone.

The variety of food at the Sunday brunch was excellent. The coffee had a lot of grounds in the bottom of the cup, it's always nice to get a mouthful of grounds. The staff was very attentive and quick to help. The view out over the lake was nice. The bill at the end was a bit of a shocker, we were told the brunch was great and we should go, so we did and it was, nobody told us it would be a 72 dollar meal for 2 people!!
Final opinion of mine: Great food, good atmosphere and excellent staff, but way overpriced, which overshadowed the whole experience.
Will not be returning.
