    This venue has been a great spot for a comfortable and homey fine dining experience. The current owners have kept up the tradition. Enjoyed the lamb shanks and saffron risotto as did the others in our enjoy their choices.

    The food was delicious. The decor was strange with hip hop paintings. Was this romantic? Music was hip hop to start. Mish mash decor, but delicious food. I’d eat there again, like I said, delicious food.

    Food was very good. 4 in our party and all were impressed with the food and service. Not salty, not oily, everything tasted fresh and like the ingredients were added to not cooked with the other items on the plate. Service was great, our server was fun and relatable. Not a contemporary interior however being an artist myself, I quite enjoyed the murals. It is a Hidden Gem.

    Definitely our new favourite place in Kelowna! I can't believe it took us so long to try it. I had the steak with garlic mashed, my hubby had the Cioppino, and our daughter had the Linguine. Everything was cooked beautifully and was delicious. Our server was super attentive, as was the hostess. My only critique, a minor one at best, was that instead of piped in music (like calming Spotify dinner music tracks), they were playing something that sounded like a radio station with a lot of talking and annoying music. The tunes did not match the ambience at all. IMHO a beautiful old Victorian home calls for something a little more mellow ;)

    Wow. I had t been to the Hidden Gem. (Not since it was The Yellow House) What an amazing dinner. Kind of felt like a European experience. The staff, the food, the ‘hostess’ everything was perfect. I had the halibut and my friend had a filet. Both were perfectly done and extremely yummy. The creme brûlée was one of the best I had. I will be back.

    The name literally says what this place is- a hidden gem! Loved the food. We were a group of 6 and we all agreed our meals tasted fabulous. The bruschetta- omg!! It was busy when we were there and our server was stretched very thin. She did a great job despite but our drinks and food took longer than normal. Again though- worth the wait. Drinks are ok priced. Would recommend they do design a special “hidden gem” cocktail to set them apart. LOVED the roses that came with the bills! Such a great way to get your cheque! We’re definitely going back. Probably this weekend!

    We had a quiet dinner with a dear friend. The service was excellent as was our food. The only complaint was the chef had left before we ordered dessert so we couldn’t confirm whether the dessert we wanted to share was gluten free.

Had the salmon and pork loin. Music playlists as right up our alley. Had a nice table out front in patio. Wine prices were reasonable. Service was very prompt & attentive, professional staff.
