Classic French Onion Soup
Caramelized white onion, deglazed with sherry. Simmered in beef broth and baked with a decadent cheese on top of a toasted baguette
We went for news years dinner. The menu was fixed so it should have been easier for the kitchen. The mushroom soup was burned, no plate was placed under the bowl so there’s no place to put your spoon. The shrimp cocktail was three Costco shrimp with a bit of mayonnaise and ketchup. The lobster was cooked correctly but the risotto was not tasty. Desserts were ok.
The staff were pleasant.
Delicious!!!! Booked again already!
Food was great but the staff were better!!
Good food...Good people. Down to earth modern flair on old world values!
Thank you for this review, very glad you enjoyed your evening hope to see you both again
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.
Thank you for this lovely review.
Pasta carbonara was excellent. Pork steak was a little tough. Desserts were very good. Service exellent, and a lovely atmosphere in a charming old house.
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.
Small restaurant, food and service were great. Nice for an intimate couples dinner. The outdoor patio looks like it would be really good in warmer weather.
The food was fantastic. The ambience was very nice and service was great! We would highly recommend people come and enjoy the experience!!
Server was excellent, so much fun, food was amazing our new favorite
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.
The food was absolutely delicious and the waitresses were very friendly and patient. Overall a great night out.
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 ;)
Perfect birthday celebration! Food was exceptional.
Not work the money.
Hi, sorry to read this review I would have tried to improve your experience if we were informed while you were dining.
Meat was overbooked, place was super loud but there was only
Hi Thanks for your review, we would have remade your meal if you would of said something to us while you were in.
Phenomenal. Excellent service, excellent food. Drove all the way from Kamloops based on the good things I heard. Will definitely make the drive again
A very good meal and a wonderful dining experience
We had an absolutely fabulous experience at Hidden Gem. Food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. We will be recommending to everyone we know.
This place was absolutely AMAZING. Food was great portions were great and the service was fantastic. Romantic atmosphere and very welcoming. Can’t wait to try more of their dishes. HIGHLY recommend this place
Thank you for this wonderful review:)
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.
Thank you very much for your review. Looking forward to seeing you again:)
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!
Service and food were top notch!
Delicious dinner, social kudos on the soups. Very accommodating staff with our shared plate requests and baby in tow.
We enjoyed having you in:) Thank you for this review:)
Fresh tasty food.
More moderately priced food and wine list than other comparable restaurants nearby.
Interesting local art on the walls
Great romantic dining experience. The staff if friendly and helpful and the food is always outstanding. Much better value than other fine dining restauarants.
Thank you for this review, we really appreciate it:)
Food was delicious, service impeccable, good price, special gift for ladies. I will recommend it to anybody. Hidden gem , the name suit very well, Small place and big heart !
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.
Birthday. Pleasant, professional, and accommodating.
This place is truly a hidden gem. The food was AMAZING! The flavours are sooo good. Service was super. We will be back! All the food is locally sourced and made in house.
Thank you so much for the lovely review! Hope to see you again soon. :)
The fish was overcooked and had very little flavor.
We are so sorry to hear this, Terra. I will make sure our chef hears your complaint. We hope you will consider dining with us again in the future :)
As always a pleasant evening. The starters were delicious but we found our entrees kind of bland. Very pleasant staff & excellent service.
Hey there! Thank you so much for the review - very sorry to hear your entrees were not up to par. I will make sure our chef hears your constructive criticism. We hope to see you again. :)
In Kelowna to celebrate our 33rd anniversary (5 day celebration)and this restaurant came up with a romantic restaurant search. It didn’t disappoint-great little spot, good food but it was by far the fabulous service that made this amazing and the rose with our bill was a sweet touch.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy we were able to give you a lovely evening on such an important day. Happy 33rd to the two of you! <3
On my first review I did not mean to hit the 1 star option.
This was an awesome evening! The food was very good and the service was wonderful! We will be back thank you.
Wonderful! Thank you! Hope to see you again :)
Food was good. Three loved their meals and two said theirs was okay. Great ambience. Servers definitely not trained for high end dining.
Thank you so much for your review! We love that you enjoyed the ambience and food, but very sorry to hear that two meals were not quite up to expectations. Although we are in the process of hiring and training new servers, your statement is correct - we do expect to have this rectified in the coming weeks. We would be thrilled to serve you again in the future! :)
We were in Kelowna for family vacation. Heard it was good and were not disappointed. Servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. All the food was very tasty and well prepared. 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. Would come back any time
Thank you for the review, we are glad you had an enjoyable evening! Hope to see you again. :)
The food was great but it took 2.5 hours for one appetizer and the meal to come out.
Hi I am sorry to become aware of your slow service via open table. I myself was on the floor that night and I never saw a table that waited that long. My apologies.
The staff were incredibly kind. They had a nice touch of giving all the women a single stem rose. However their service was extremely slow and the food was very bland. I would not recommend
Sorry to read this review, I would have been nice to correct your food while you were in and the service time.
What a great night we had at this hidden gem. Ryan had a great sense of humour and he made wonderful recommendations. Easy to park and close to downtown. We will be back for sure!!
Outstanding service that matched our ”pace” perfectly. Very tasty food, great wine and very accommodating of our service dog.
Beautiful, quaint courtyard. Food was really good. Our waiter was outstanding! Great service. Perfect for an evening out.
