Our second visit this year and another superb meal. Saxon, our server, was attentive and very helpful with advice on the menu and wines. All six of us agreed the food was excellent with char, bison and lamb being the dishes we selected. Thanks for a great evening.

The quality of the food was absolutely outstanding. I had the char and it was the best fish I've ever eaten. The service was superb - from the time our order was taken to table delivery. The atmosphere was quiet, yet the restaurant was full. It was lovely to carry on a conversation over a fabulous meal. I highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who values fine dining.

Everyone in our lunch party enjoyed the food, setting, service and experience. Looking forward to visiting again. The Burger is tasty, soup of the day creative and fresh all of which paired nicely with the Cipes Brut!

I ordered a burger, no bun. Half fries and half salad. The fires were mediocre. Salad was OK.

The meat came on a bed of lettuce which is fine. The burger was completely over cooked and had almost no moisture. I would have sent it back but we had a deadline. The aggravation was added to by the next table over getting 2 burgers served that were pinkish in the middle and juicy. The 2 fellows were clearly enjoying them.

There were only 2 servers which was not enough. Ours was great.

My wife enjoyed her pear salad.

We went here on a Sunday for my husband’s birthday. We shared the Sautéed humboldt squid to start. Very tasty. For our mains, I had the lentil Wellington and my husband had the Char with shrimp risotto. Both were fantastic! The service was excellent as well.

We were disappointed at our experience. We arrived at 7 pm. We ordered our food. It did not arrive until 8:30 pm. Our drinks arrived and then we did not see anyone for one hour. Finally a server came by to tell us our plates had gone to another table. They gave us two glasses of sparkling wine.
I asked if we could at least get some bread while we waited. Our food finally arrived 30 minutes later. Actually, we were ready to leave if our food did not come out by 8;30. My husband ordered tenderloin that was unevenly cooked and that he couldn't eat and returned. Mine was Arctic Char and it was fine. All the while we waited, tables around us were served. In the end, we did not pay for the tenderloin and they gave us a a free bottle of their sparkling wine. While we appreciated the gesture, we were disappointed that they could not communicate with us earlier to let us know own what was taking so long. Meals are not inexpensive at this restaurant and we booked it because it was my birthday. We hope that in the future the staff can be more attentive to the customers and not leave them waiting for 90 minutes for a meal.

The menu was limited with few affordable options for entrees. The servings were rather small and expensive but what there was of the meat or fish was delicious. We found the wine overpriced given the wine shop is on the premises. We were glad to hear that a more affordable option may be returning to Summerhill which is the Tuesday night specials. The view really is spectacular and one of the reasons we like to take out of town guests. Given it is one of the few restaurants in the area it would be nice to see that it could be appreciated by more locals by having more affordable options.

Hm. This meal was a bit of a disappointment. We chose it because we had a number of vegetarians with us and Summerhill has real veg options on their menu (actual choices!). The service was really lacking - our server provided a table of 9 people with only one drink menu, took ages to take our order, and had no familiarity with any of the wines. The meal itself came out in bits and pieces - 3 people were served, then another two, then the final 4. By the time I started eating (I had been among the first served) my meal was lukewarm at best. The food itself was extraordinarily overpriced for what was served, and this is coming from someone who eats happily at higher-priced restaurants like Waterfront or Raudz. My meal, the "Lentil Wellington", was dry, the vegetable portion was very small, the puree on the plate was tasteless, and everything was considerably under seasoned. The bison meal that a number of guests ate - which was a $50 plate - came looking very sloppy - random pieces of bison (it was called a "ribeye", but came out in 3-4 pieces all haphazardly thrown on top of some vegetables) which were cooked well but otherwise pretty un-notable. The dessert was a complete disaster - advertised as "Black Forest Cake", the description said there would actually BE cake, with compote and gelato and etc, but what arrived was a literal bowl of dry crumbs (like cookie crumbs that weren't good), some little log of mascarpone or whipped cream, and a blob of ice cream. I overheard the waitress tell another diner at the table that they had run out of cake and so were providing a deconstructed version, but not everyone at the table heard that and there was a lot of laughing about what it was we were served. Overall the meal was a bit of a joke, to be honest. Lots of wineries in Kelowna aspire for a "fine dining" restaurant and then can't actually execute, and Summerhill is definitely one of those. Location and ambience are great, potential is there, but give this one a miss.

It has been a year or 2 since my last visit. It is sad to see what has happened to the quality of the dishes served. It seemed like the kitchen had ran out of the items being sold in the menu. Portions were very disappointing and embarrassing!!!!
Ordered multiplys of the same entree and 1 was completely destroyed by the kitchen and when the replacement came it was completely unlike the pervous meals. At least they couldn’t change the view....

The server was good at the beginning then it all fell apart. The food wasn’t hot either. We finished eating and chatted for a while and were ready to leave but the server never came back and I had to ask two different servers to get us the bill. Then our server finally came not with the bill but with the desert menu. Well too late! We had to wait even longer to get the bill. For how much they charge, it’s not done well. There are plenty of other nicer places that match the price and the service.

It seems the menu at Summerhill has gone Vegan. Maybe 2 meat dishes and 2 fish dishes. My salmon was good but small. And I only got leafy greens and grapes with it. No rice or potatoes or pasta. I was left hungry after spending 38>00 dollars with the tax and tips. My girlfriend felt the same. Change the menu or I am not interested in returning.

My husband and I visited Summerhill for our anniversary dinner and had a fantastic time. The service was amazing and so was the food. We arrived early to our reservation and the hostess apologized that a table was not ready so we had a drink at the bar. The hostess then came over and said hat since it was our anniversary they were making sure we got a good table. We really appreciated the effort of the staff, it made our night much more enjoyable knowing that the staff cared. The food was worth every penny, we were very impressed. We will definitely be visiting again!

There were 7 of us for supper on the patio.

The waitress was nice however could have been a bit more attentive.

Unfortunately there were numerous flies around us while we were eating and it really took away from the experience. Someone had left their dog outside in a kennel and it was barking for a while which also took away from the experience however the owners were asked to move their dog after a little while.

Overall, it was a good supper. It was nice to show some family (out of province) a nice meal but there was room for improvement.

I am sure I will be back again the next time I am in the area.
