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.

Two of us had the 3 course set menu and we each took a different appie and main. Both dinners were amazing and the dessert was a perfect ending. Wine recommendations were right on too. Impeccable service and a beautiful evening on the patio.

Our favourite spot for lunch in the Okanagan. You must get the grilled cheese - it comes with a homemade apricot hot sauce that is to die for and it pairs well with any of the white wines.

Great stop for lunch while wine tasting in the Okanagan. Beautiful location, overlooking the valley and vineyards. Friendly staff, great menu and good food. Covid 19 regulations well maintained. It's not only a good place to eat but a safe place to eat. Highly recommend.

Food was great. Decent portion sizing. Fixed menus was good value and very tasty. Dessert was too big, if anything. Wine pairings great too. Would definitely repeat.

Everything was amazing. We spent more than 2 hours enjoying our dining experience and tried almost everything on the appetizer menu. Only suggestion would be that the portions are quite small.

My wife and I made our reservation through OpenTable. The process was quick and easy with an instant confirmation.
We had Easter Lunch on the outdoor patio overlooking the vineyards that you pass through from the main road to the winery/restaurant.
The Covid 19 Protocols were in place.
The Service was first rate. The food was also first rate. A little pricey but, we felt very happy with our experience.
We each enjoyed a glass of 'aged' wine with our lunch.
This is our second time eating at this winery and we will definitely be returning.
Thank you to the staff for making our Easter Lunch a wonderful experience.

Our waitress was rather short and actually rude when my husband could not see the wine prices on the app. A menu and wine list was then provided. There WERE small portions and the food was just OK.the views are wonderful. there was outside dining only due to COVID but the sun was shining.

The staff and service was amazing from the start. Polite professional and knowledgeable of the menu and most importantly the wine that pairs best with it. The restaurant is open and spacious with comfortable feel to it. The food was amazing and the wine the same. I strongly recommend and suggest a visit if you like great wine food and company.

Food was good but service wasn’t. I could hear the servers fight over tables and when we asked to sit outside in two separate tables the server said it wasn’t possible because we had kids. We went there for the view and we weren’t able to see it.

Competent food, pleasant service and obviously a great setting. Be sure to ask if your wine choice is available in the shop. Many on the restaurant menu are not.

We enjoyed lunch outside on the deck, there are heaters and the view of the vineyards is amazing. good welcoming service, food and wine, must reserve ahead as it is always full. Tables are spaced well apart.

Very much enjoyed our dinner. I am vegan, which has not be great in Osoyoos. This restaurant more than made up for it, when the chef (I believe his name was Richard) made one of the most delicious vegan dinners I have had, with smoked tofu, lentils and roasted vegetables. The wine wasn’t bad either 😀

We ordered the three course menu for the night and had the pork loin as the main dish. Unfortunately the pork was overcooked, very dry and tough. Surprisingly the waiter never came and asked how our meal was, I'm thinking he knew it was not great. I have been here before and had great meals, so I was very disappointed with this meal.
