Our second visit, and the warmth of the servers and manager are outstanding. Very cosy spot in the off-season. The food has been beautifully prepared and fresh each time, and very reasonable. Everything about the food says: “we try our hardest even if it’s not the height of tourist season.” Many veggie options. Lovely local wines and knowledgeable staff handling them, who can also turn out a great martini.

Valentine's Dinner Special although on the pricier side as it was a shared plate scenario, was of excellent quality, very creative and the wine pairing added a nice touch.

We had the three course dine around dinner. I had Caesar salad, watermark sausages, and apple crisp. My husband had a fish stew.
All was excellent!

Food is almost okay for the price, but definitely not great. The charcuterie board was terrible, but the cheese dip was good. Only perk is the good liquor prices! Go for a few drinks and the view, but don't bother with the food.

Competent menu and generous serving size leads to good value. But undertrained wait staff create poor service that does not bode well. A bartender that cannot make simple cocktails, servers who remove my plate while my wife is still eating, and being told 'no worries' or 'awesome' after every question or answer is problematic for a hotel that calls itself a 4 star resort.

The patio overlooking the lake and all the children playing on the lawn was lovely; staff was generous and attentive but not hovering. The food both nights was really good; a wonderful surprise in a family-oriented summer resort hotel. Arctic char was perfectly cooked and flavourful and the Caesar salad w BC prawns, kale chips and a sun dried tomato tapenade was one of the best I’ve had. Well considered and varied choices of local wines both by the glass and bottle. There are precious few good restaurants in the immediate Osoyoos area but this is worth the trip.

It was good food and nice view of the mountains. The service was painfully slow and the patio is next to the pool so lots of noise with kids playing. I ordered the Chicken and Gnocchi which was delicious and I would recommend.

We have been to the watermark several times and really enjoyed it. This visit we were disappointed in the menu choices, limited and not a lot of choice for vegetarian options. as well as a few menu items were not available. The meals we did have had great flavour and presentation but more expensive than in the past. Not great value

Had a server in training which is reflected in service rating. To be fair, I started out with ingredient questions due to dietary restrictions so may have thrown him off. Seemed like with practice he'll be a great server though.
When serious specific dietary restrictions are mentioned at this caliber of a restaurant I would expect there to be no guesswork in the response. This was not the case.

For noise level just didn't love the selection of music for a date night but it was a beautiful setting outdoors.

Absolutely delicious food! Kudos to the chef! Thank you!

Hi Suzy Q, thank you for your feedback. the amount of knowledge we give our seasonal staff is very extensive, and we make sure that when they don't know something... like allergy questions or dietary needs they come straight to management and or the chef. it may cause an extra minute or two to service but important concerns like that should always be taken very seriously and my staff are very aware of that. its very positive thought that you see the potential in our trainees as much as we do.

Perhaps it was because it was early in the season, but the service was not great; inexperienced staff weren't much help to the one great waitress who was run off her feet. The food was overcooked, the wine list features local "boutique" wines which were not very good. That said, the location, the ambience are second to none. The prices are high considering the delivered product and service...unfortunate but I'm certain as the summer season progresses it will improve.

Service was extremely poor, Food was burnt and cold, Coffee was old. All and all a terrible experience and we will not go back. We returned our food. Pay our bill and left. The place is substandard at best. Owner needs to wake up and over see this business if they expect it to succeed. Because you employees are taking it down.

We were given a "moonlight" package as a gift from our children to celebrate our 35th anniversary. Our server didn't know her beer selection and we were not impressed by her summary that all beers on the menu are BC beer. We ordered one from Toronto. The meal was very nice. The presentation also very nice. As part of our package, we had a coupon voucher for $50.00 towards the meal. The server was not supposed to put this voucher through the front desk we learned as after about a 20 minute check out, we were charged for 3 restaurant charges. The first was correct at $14.65. There was a restaurant charge of $77.00 appox. on our room check out which was not ours. The third charge was the meal we did enjoy totalling $48.85. We were charged for this at check out, but the voucher should have covered this. I had to question these charges for these to be reversed. As a gift from our children, we didn't want them to be billed the $141.00 approx that we were additionally charged.

I made a reservation but we showed up early to have a drink in the bar. We were escorted to a table and asked the name on the reservation. Half way through dinner I got a call from the restaurant wondering why we didn’t show - but we were seated there!
One person in our group of 5 ordered from the bbq and was served 15 minutes before the rest. Awkward! The waitress thought this was logical but we should have been informed beforehand.
The chicken thigh dish was simply awful.

Amy was an OUTSTANDING server! Being so young, I was incredibly impressed by her professionalism and dynamic communication skills. The food was beyond excellent.

It was my birthday dinner with my boyfriend so we were looking for a nice romantic evening out and I can honestly say the Restaurant at the Watermark did a fabulous job in making me feel special on my birthday (even though you guys had no idea). The sausage/beans dish was exceptional and the chef slipped us a little extra soup which made me feel super happy!

LOVED this restaurant and experience and I will be recommending it.

I usually love the restaurant at Watermark, but this time was disappointing. Came for the set Thanksgiving menu and was seriously let down. Service was okay, but have had much better there. The food was nowhere near the quality that I expect from them and reminded me of a turkey dinner you would get in a retirement home or hospital cafeteria. The turkey was actually inedible. Too bad
