Sit down tasting was great followed by a very tasty dinner. We have enjoyed the lobster pizza several times so brought friends with us this time. Excellent! Our server was also fantastic. Engaging, upbeat and efficient. The only down side was sitting beside the main building so there was limited view (2 were facing the wall) and having to tolerate the noisy foursome near us. We asked to move but were told upcoming reservations prevented that. We will in future reserve a specific table location as it appeared to be what the empty tables were anticipating.
Great pizza, great wines. Best to go from 3pm to 6pm for Happy Hour deals!
Thanks, glad you enjoyed!
Heidi our server was fabulous. She was very friendly and had great suggestions. She made our experience to be super enjoyable and relaxing. I’ll definitely be back with my parents!! I’ll try the pick up at the boat dock option.
Atmosphere is nice. Service was very pleasant. Managing people at entrance needs some work.
Pizza was cool to table. Calzone needed some sauce in it but it was delivered hot.
Thanks for the feed back. Sorry to hear your pizza was not hot as it should have been. We agree, the front entrance is very difficult and we review our protocol weekly and keep applying new strategies.
Thanks, we review our Covid protocol weekly and we have made it mandatory for all staff when moving about customers.
Excellent service, safe environment with very good food.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed!
Really enjoyed the live music and delicious food and wine. We had salad as there was no gluten free pizza on the menu.
Thanks for the feedback. We do offer a gluten free crust, not sure how we missed that for you folks. Sorry, it is noted on the bottom of the pizza list. I will chat with the service team to make sure they are pointing it out.
As usual the food and wine were outstanding. Jenna was a gracious and efficient server.
Staff wore masks but were pulling them off and on in the dining area which made me uncomfortable.
Great Service, Food presentation and Ambience!
Given we had a reservation we would have appreciated the heads up there was a limited menu due to some equipment was done. Secondly the only entree other than pizza was sold out by the time we ordered...our reservation time was 615 so not that late.
Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit. We have been juggling our menu. This weekend we have added our burgers, pasta and entree special back on.
Poor choice of seating that they gave us. We kept having to move our table out of sun every half hour and we are all older women. They didn’t once ask us if we needed to move. They stuck us out in a makeshift canopy area far away from the main seating.
I am sorry that you were not happy with our seating. We do have a difficult patio when it is very hot. The extra patio was an effort to keep tables far apart for Covid safety. I am sorry you did not feel well taken care of. I will be discussing with our management team.
Great happy hour!
Fantastic food, service and delightful wine ambience. Join the wine club for food and wine discounts.
Thanks! Welcome to the club!
The service, wine and food was great. We’ll come back again without question.
Great, see you again!
Love this cute place. Very relaxing with the vineyard views! Friendly staff and the food is good. Wish there was other choices for mains aside from pizza, but that is simply because where I work serves pizza. Highly recommend this restaurant. The unoaked chardonnay was delightful.
Thanks for the feedback. We just added to our menu this weekend. We had to dial back a little for a few weeks. We now have pasta, burgers and entree features back. Sorry we missed you with that!
Gorgeous patio, fresh food, and great wine. Overall a great place.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed your visit.
Really enjoyed the happy hour with live music!! Will definitely be back!
Great, glad you enjoyed.
Charcuterie platter was good, flatbread was very salty, I am the dedicated driver, all they had was water or San pellegrino water. Nice if they had other choices
Thanks for the feed back. We do have two flavours of the pellegrino and a sparkling apple juice. I will be chatting with the team to see who is unaware of the options.
Our server (Cameron) was truly excellent. Very personable and very quick. He earned a very nice tip!
The setting, wine and food was terrific. And it was reasonably priced. I have nothing but good things to say about O'Rourke Winery and their vineyard restaurant.
Thanks, we agree Cameron is great!
Pizza and wine night on the patio. Had the mushroom pizza for the first time, we will have it again for sure.
Yummy! that mushroom pizza is a bit hit! Glad you enjoyed.
Our favourite weekly place to grab lunch or dinner, we had the cheese pizza with a salad and it was amazing. Love the Pinot Noir!
Thanks! Glad you enjoy!
Went for a late lunch. Pizza was awesome. Service 5/5. Only negative was it was smoking hot temperature wise. Winery might want to invest in some misters to help cool down their patio area.
We have misters, but they have been giving us issues. We are working on it. Thanks Glad you enjoyed!
I took my son and his girlfriend and my daughter there for my son's 31st birthday. The pizzas were exceptional the salads were exceptional the wine was exceptional a great experience thank you
Thanks, glad you all enjoyed!
Lobster pizza is absolutely wonderful. Definitely worth a try.
25 Year Anniversary
Sorry to see your service was not of our usual standards.
Disappointed that their mains is mostly pizza. Expected a little more choice.
They are doing a fair job with Covid, some tables seemed a little close.
Thanks for the feed back. We are slowly adding to our menu as we have had to pull back due to volume. We will also take a look at the floor plan as there are 6 ft markers for reset.
Feels like we are in Italy! Love the patio dinning, relaxed and the food was delicious!
Thanks! We agree, it does feel like Italy in this part of the valley!
Great service, beautiful surroundings, fantastic food & wine.
Pretty place and great pizza but there are no fans on the bistro and there was no breeze. We had a 6pm reservation. It was roasting hot and I couldn't wait to get out. A small investment in fans would make it bearable.
Sorry, our patio can be very warm on these crazy heat days!
The food was extremely good and I was so happy to be able to do a wine tasting of sorts with my meal.
Glad you enjoyed!
We had a lovely lunch. Our server was extremely accommodating. It was a beautiful day with beautiful food and wine.
Menu has changed substantially. Once robust with a nice array of dining options to mainly overpriced pizza. Waiter explained situation which was good of him and it seems they bit off a little more than they could handle so back to basics for now. Hope they can get the menu back to where it was some day.
Good location, good view, pleasant outdoor sitting
Very good friendly service
Good vine selection
We really liked musicians who performed when we were there.
We'd like to see greater variety of dishes in menu (too much of pizzas too little snacks/tapas)
We thoroughly enjoyed the pizza. Our waiter Matt did a great job of keeping us all comfortable and he was efficient with seating, presenting the menu, offering drinks and answering questions about the menu. We will definitely want to return to O'Rourke's in the future and have already told friends about our experience.
We had a fantastic lunch there yesterday! Highly recommended
Great place, food it really good. Pairs well with the wine they offer, I am sad they got rid of the best tasting bread sticks
Overall it was good but not fantastic. I know changes have been made due to covid and they can’t help that but our server didn’t come to our table for 20 minutes to take even a drink order. Then it was over 45 minutes for appies and 90 minutes for a single pizza. We had given ourselves two hours for lunch and we had to get the pizza to go because it was so slow. We had a reservation and the place wasn’t packed so overall it was disappointing. Servers were polite and friendly. Food was good, not spectacular but I’d come back again... if I had a few hours.
Thanks for letting us know. I am sorry we did not provide our usual high standards of service.
Pizza was disappointing. Quite soggy. Service very good. Wine very nice
Sorry to hear the pizza was soggy as this is not up to our usual high standards. I am glad you enjoyed the wine!
One pizza was undercooked but staff handled it well. Limited menu but recommended for any occasion.
Thanks, sorry the pizza was not up to our usual high standards. Glad the service team made up for it.
