Overlooking rows of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay set against the Okanagan Lake, our outdoor Terrace Restaurant complements our wine’s natural affinities with cuisine that is locally, sustainably, and seasonally sourced. By growing much of our own produce in the estate Varietal Garden and working hand-in-hand with local farmers, we are able to provide a spectacular culinary experience highlighting the bountiful ingredients & world-class wines that characterize this region.

By partnering with local farmers, our menu continuously evolves to incorporate the freshest ingredients. Similar to our philosophy in the vineyards, we have a firm belief in sustainable and bio-dynamic agricultural practices, including local foraging, organic farming, and the Vancouver Aquarium’s OceanWise program. Even our own honeybees help sustain the estate gardens while providing wildflower honey to be used by our culinary team.

As a privilege member, I often host guests at the Terrace restaurant. It is certainly a beautiful view and nice ambiance. At our last luncheon, the experience was certainly not up to the standard I have come to expect.
We were not seated on the vineyard side as requested, and were placed right next to the kitchen. It was the worst table possible with far too much activity with servers picking up their orders, guests arriving and being seated etc.
As well, the ‘amuse bouche’ is a perk of the membership and should be provided once the initial drink order is provided. We had to wait far too long and it actually came after I had given hope that we would receive it and we had to order a shared appetizer. It was silly to have the cheese board plus the complimentary cheese focussed amuse bouche.
The main course (3 different pastas) were just ‘ok’ and certainly not as tasty as previous occasions (different chef I suppose).
Our service was very good but slow (2.5 hour lunch).
Overall not an enjoyable lunch sadly and I will reconsider hosting further luncheons here (over to Quail’s Gate instead).
In addition, the hordes of tourists outside the restaurant were hanging about with kids screaming etc.
Overall not the experience we were hoping for.

Breathtaking views! Service was decent, but food could be better. I ordered a beef bavette, and while I know it's not the most tender cut, the steak knife they provided could not cut through the meat.

It was a great restaurant. The only disappointment was for my dining companion whom had suggested the restaurant because they had been coveting the burger and once we got their for our reservation at 12:45 you were already sold out. As my dining companion doesn’t eat mushrooms or seafood it made it challenging to find an entre to order. They ended up ordering fries and the vegetable medley. Both good but not replaceable for an entre.

Our dining experience was ruined by the host’s poor customer service. We were seated at a table where only one person can enjoy the view of the lake. We asked our waitress if one of us could move the chair to the side so we both can see the lake. Host with a black dress and district eye makeup (harsh black eyeliner) came and told us to move the chair back, saying “I need you to move...” impolitely. Our waitress did a good job serving us but needs to communicate better with the host because this could have been avoided if she did. I will probably write a complaint letter to give more details about our experience. We were very disappointed because we really liked the winery tour before our lunch.

The service right from the start was amazing. They originally placed us at a table closer to the lawn but moved us to a table overlooking the lake without us asking. Our waitress Sara was polite, courteous and attentive the entire time. It was our first time there and if we ever come back to Kelowna we will be sure to book a reservation there again!

Outstanding food. The flavours blended perfectly yet each item was distinct. The potato and cheese fondue on the beef Babette was mind blowing. We asked for it on the halibut and shrimp dish as well. I think we created a new menu item!!
The cheesecake for dessert had me at the sponge toffee crumble surrounding the cake.
What a fabulous treat! Great service incredible views of the water and stunning grounds. The best restaurant and winery experience in the area...maybe in Canada.

We went for an anniversary dinner and felt like we were given first class treatment. The service was excellent as was the ambiance. The food was also delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience and would go back for a special occasion.

The only minor complaint would be that some of the entrees were rather small. My wife ordered the bavette, which was a decent portion. I ordered the halibut, which was nice but was quite tiny (2-3 oz?) with 3 tiny shrimps, three or four bite size pieces of squash and some peas. It was also in a tasty dill sauce. On its own, this dish was really good but would not have been enough to sustain me, and I don’t eat large portions to begin with. I do recognize that at higher end restaurants, the tendency is to do more with smaller portions of higher quality ingredients, which this restaurant does and that I generally applaud. However, a 36 dollar entree should at the end of the day keep you full for more than an hour- or at least come with a big asterisk that the dish is quite small. Aside from this minor issue, the experience was fantastic.

Super small suggestion- I would suggest changing the knives, at least for steak- type dishes. The knives provided, while very stylish, were quite dull and awkward to use and were not easy to cut proteins with)

Thanks so much for the lovely dinner and superb service!

The dining area is outdoors with screens, unfortunately it was quite breezy when we were there. Overhead heaters and blankets help, but each time the wind came up it was a cold blast on our legs and backs. The screens likely reduced the wind at table level, but meant we couldn't enjoy the view very well. Service and food were amazing, and the outdoor setting would be nice on a warmer summer day, but with the cool day and winds it was distracting from the overall effect - it would have been nice to be inside and enjoy the view through windows.

My husband and I booked the Terrace Restaurant for a celebratory/romantic dinner on the first night of our honeymoon and it did not disappoint.

Our server, Cory, was super helpful with his food and wine recommendations. We ordered the beets and cheese for our starter, the steak and the truffle spaghetti for our main course, and the goat cheesecake and macaron ice cream sandwiches for our dessert. If it wasn’t so unclassy to do so, we would have licked our plates clean after each course.

The view was incredibly and the Mission Hill winery grounds are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend the Terrace Restaurant to all of my friends when visiting Kelowna.

Absolutely one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever endured. Multiple servers were very friendly and would often swing by to ask how wine/food was tasting. I felt comfortable as if I were at home. Everyone was very personable and was willing to ensure our experience was a 5 star experience. Kira took care of us during our experience and was was very knowledgeable and friendly. Kira and Joel sincerely went above and beyond to make this experience at Mission Hill a memorable one.

Terrace Restaurant was recommended to us as a 'must visit' on our first trip to the area. We were not disappointed. The menu was inviting with many local ingredients, there was a very good wine menu (as one would expect) and the service was excellent with good explanations of food and wine choices. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. The views from the restaurant were delightful. We will certainly be back when we next visit the Okanagan region.
