We sat on the patio and there was a bit of a breeze because the screen was broken. The waitress did everything she could to keep us warm. The wedge salad was very good and the pizzas we had were delicious with a nice crisp crust. Overall it was a little chilly but a great evening.

The Peak has managed to create a comfortable atmosphere considering they are under construction currently. The enclosed outside space was cozy with the heaters on, so we were comfortable. We were a little disappointed the Dine Around menu was sold out, that left only a few menu choices. All in all it was good and we enjoyed getting out for a short break.

Thanks for the feed back. Sorry the dine around was sold out when you came in. Our renovation has made it a little harder to gage volume. We will be fully operational in early April.

Love going to this restaurant - but unfortanetly they were doing a renovation to their kitchen-I wish we knew about it ahead of time - very limited menu - the pizzas were still wonderful. But the tuna poke bowl was a huge let down. All the ingredients were super fresh but the taste overall was not good. Probably our 5 time since the summer but a bit of a let down. I think I will wait for the new kitchen before going there again. It is still a great restaurant to visit.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your last visit and that you didn't find the poke bowl flavourful. I will let chef know. Renovations should be done in early April.

The restaurant has a lovely vineyard setting with beautiful views and offers great food with daily specials to ensure variety. The accompanying wine list is quite affordable compared with many winery restaurants, and you can even do a wine tasting before your meal right at your table. Staff are super friendly, and the dining area is open and spacious and as such feels very comfortable.

The music was too loud, echoing noise from kitchen, people talking and hard to have a conversation without screaming to each other !
Please improve this by putting carpet on the floor and hang curtains or other materials that will take the echo out !
The wine was perfect!!!👍🍷

We were greeted immediately upon arrival. They readied our table and we were escorted to our table. With the current Covid concerns mask were worn by all staff upon arrival and throughout the time we were there.
Our reservation included wine tasting accompanied with a nice size charcuterie plate.All was quite very good.
Would definitely recommend this tasting option.

Hi Guys
We frequent your restaurant quite often and are never disappointed so I do not know what happened on New Year’s Eve but you went off the rails for sure!
The food was horrible and the service was similar, it was like your regular chef and staff took the night off and you handed off to another team! If you would like to discuss we would welcome it.

Service was wonderful, we were running behind because of snow and they made sure we still had our table. Our server was funny and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding, I have a dairy and wheat allergy and they made sure I was taken care of.
And of course I can’t forget the wine. The bottle of Riesling was the perfect accompaniment to our meal and evening. Overall a fantastic experience!

We went for the lobster pizza
Ordered it as we have for years
Surprise though
There was Virtually very little scraps to no lobster on it where as it was smothered in capocollo
asking what happened
was told they have a new Supplier for the lobster
so even though we love the place we will never order the lobster pizza Again
it in the past has been extremely popular
thier loss

We went to O'Rourke's to get a break from turkey and were not disappointed. We had burgers which were nicely cooked and not over garnished. They also had a lamb mac and cheese special which was delicious. We always enjoy happy hour there as well and find it si good value.
