Farm-to-table
The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.

Our third time dining at The Sonora Room, and as before, it was a great experience! We dined outside enjoying the warm evening.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented, the staff were helpful and thoughtful, the scenery was a treat to the eyes, and the soothing quiet was an elixir to us after a time of busyness and commotion!
Can't wait to come back!

Unbelievable experience! The food was amazing, the 2010 Cab Sauv was delicious but most impressive was the service we had. Our waiter was one of the best we have ever had. Can't wait to return on our next visit!

We were celebrating 21st bday, a very special occasion, when we arrived we let the waiter know it’s a 21st birthday party, unfortunately our waiter gave us the lousiest service we’ve ever received from this kind of a establishment, very very poor quality of service

Everything was good with a few exceptions. Didn’t know our severs name. At one point we just about had to go to the bar inside to order another drink cause she was unavailable to us. Portion size for the scallop meal was underwhelming. 3 small scallops and a tiny salad. Had to order a soup after. We always enjoy this winery as we are locals and frequent it quite often for lunches and dinners.
