Everything was perfect. Friendly, efficient service, great food, and good wine. The restaurant wasn't very busy, because it was December and the weather was cool, but that worked out well for us. I can recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Loved Terrafina! We always have an excellent time here, spot-on service, spectacular food. Only prob was OpenTable reservation didn’t make its way to the restaurant even though I did receive a confirmation email and reminder. Luckily the awesome staff found a great table for us.

The food was excellent, fresh wonderful .we started with the board and an amazing array of flavors . We all tried each others main courses and all very nice . We were very Lucky to have Wes from Raudz in the restaurant that evening to serve us . We are frequent visitors to Raudz and Micro in kelowna and know Wes from there.
The ambience and the food could not have been better . Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Lunch reservation Sunday on the way home from a weekend of wine tasting and golf. My husband's Italian toast ( French toast) was delicious. The other 3 of us ordered eggs benedict (2 prosciutto and 1 salmon) - all just thought it was fine. The coffee was very good. We did have a lengthy wait for our meal, but had been advised that a new menu was rolling out that day. All in all, I would return to try other menu items.

Hello,

We enjoyed our dinner at Hester Creek, if I can point out. Your kitchen closes at 9 and our reservation was for 745pm . By the time you sit down and get a cocktail it is 8:30 . We were told to take our time but then rushed to take our food order since the kitchen is closing in half an hour. We did state we would like a casual dining experience and had no desire to be rushed out the door.. which we felt like we were. WE did not get time to digest our appy since we had to have our dinner immediately after it. ugg.. yuk. My suggestion is , if you are closing your kitchen on a saturday night at 9 then do not take reservations at 8pm . It is unfortunate. Many of us take the time to come and experience the vineyards and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. So this was a bit of a disappointment to us since we only get one weekend out of the year to holiday...

Regards,
Shirley Gasparin

This is a delightful spot outside under the grapevine in the Fall. My friend and I were impressed with our server and the blankets to take off the Fall chill. Some of the blanket shed black on white pants but other than that it was a lovely thoughtful idea.
Food was excellent and enough left over to take home for the next day!
We will be back.

My third visit, but first in a few years. I was disappointed in one change to the menu - no pizza. I had soup and a Caesar salad. The soup was excellent, but the salad was not to my liking - I prefer lots of garlic and anchovies and both tastes were too muted in my opinion.

I booked this reservation a day or so before and it was a special trip for my sister and friends
1- there reservation was not honored for the time 2pm they were sent to do a tasting
2-they came back 45 min later and were given the happy hour menu not the lunch menu
4-they were not givin any compensation for being put aside just please pay and good bye

So disappointed this happened to them as they were going there on my recommendation
and it shortened the wine tour I was taking them on as it was 2 hours or more
Yes things happen during busy times but when you make a reservation you should not be shuffled aside because of over booking or short staffing Im hoping because of the good food that is served there that this review will not be shoved in the garbage as " who cares our food is good people will still keep coming " these ladies are from North Vancouver and will share there experience with others.

Of the three upscale restaurants in Osoyoos/Oliver that we tried Terrafina was the overwhelming best of them all! Good food, fun/vibrant atmosphere, a good friendly waiter and a floor manager that obviously kept things top notch. We really enjoyed our dinner and evening at Terrafina! Franchesco was our waiter. Great job. Thanks.

I had lunch with my husband as we were passing through. The ambience was beautiful with a Tuscany Mediterranean vibe. We sat inside because it had just rained but the outdoor seating is beautiful. My husband had a pizza and he raved about it. I had the cauliflower soup and the gnocchi and both were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant and the winery is also beautiful!

Everything was lovely, food was delicious, service very good....my only complaint or suggestion would be to increase some of the lighting on the patio. As the evening progressed we found it a little too dark at our table to really see our food so better lighting would be my only recommendation!

Terrible service. Waited almost 30 minutes for our drink order to be taken and arrive at the table. Another 30 minutes for the food to arrive. (The restaurant was at half capacity) Once the meal was completed the bill was brought to the table and the waitress who was missing most of the evening then stood at the and waited with the pay terminal at the table.
Food was better than the service. But won't be going back.
