Incredible views. Nice ambience. Food geared towards vegans. Would have liked to see more options for meat eaters. Food was still very yummy but options lacking
The place is beautiful but I wasn't too impressed by the food. Portions are good, quality of food is pretty good, many vegan options which is very nice, but not the best food I've had. Very pricey. 6/10.
Summerhill never disappoints! Its a wonderful place to take out of town guests and show off our beautiful valley ! The staff is friendly and welcoming - the wines superb and the dining experience is always creative.
I don’t like the changes to the restaurant. We got married here in 2012 and the food was excellent. It seems like it is gearing more towards becoming fully vegan now, every year the menu gets smaller and more items are vegan.
I loved how the menu changed with the seasons and what foods were locally available and that it was organic. The food was always amazing but now it’s just ok, not really worth the price, nothing about this recent meal was fantastic. I want and expect really tasty food, not fake cheese cheesecake!
I will be really sad if Sunset Bistro becomes fully Vegan. I would love to see if go back to how it was in 2012.
Great food and wine! Great views of the mountains.
Great for a date!
Nice place to get a glass of wine but food is not of good quality. We went on Valentine's day for a nice 4 course meal and was let down by both food and drink. Odd pairings and poor cuts of meat that seemed thrown together. Was married at Summerhill winery but probably will not be back.
Excellent food, service and venue.
Superb food, wine and service. We had a lovely family dinner and all of us agreed was one of the best meals ever!
Food beautiful and delicious just very small serving for the price
Better views in the summer. Limited menu in the winter. Still fantastic place to takes visitors. A bit pricey though!
Loved this place! The service was impeccable, Doug was fantastic. A lovely evening out.
Great place amazing view . Good attentive service
Great brunch/lunch. Delicious and freshly prepared food. Excellent service. Beautiful view
My favourite winery in Kelowna.Beautiful lake view! Great food and drinks. Great souvenirs if visiting wine country . Definitely a must visit when in Kelowna !
The arctic char and steak were fantastic. The wine recommended was perfect for the meal. Service was excellent. I would recommend this for a night out with a special someone. Quiet, private with low noise levels so you can talk normally.
Third visit for the buffet brunch this year. Sadly, it was the least impressive, especially on the Thanksgiving weekend. No turkey, limited variety of hot foods and salads. Perhaps this is their wind up brunch after a busy Wine Festival.
Wine and ambience was amazing. Brunch not at all what it was on previous visits.
Came here for supper with our 8 month old. We had a great time
We were two couples meeting up for Sunday brunch during wine fest. There were also a few tour buses rolling in during the time. The food was plentiful and delicious despite the volume of guests. The only negative was the wait for the omelette station, and we felt bad for the one guy with one pan managing all those orders. There should have been two pans on the go, at least.
Essentially a vegetarian/vegan restaurant but hey do offer meat dishes, however limited. Had I known this when I booked, I would've chosen a different restaurant. Because of the very limited meat menu selection, I won't return to this restaurant. Service was not great.
Had an excellent night here on the weekend. There was a sip into sunset promotion going on that included wine pairings for each course. An excellent way to sample your way across the menu. Food was excellent and the wine was perfect. Our server Doug was extremely knowledgeable and helped create a perfect evening.
Our experience was outstanding as the Bistro food, atmosphere, surroundings were first class.
Food was average, service was great! And wines were good.
The menu was confusing and the food was not my style! Flavours were bland and not to the least something I would spend that much money on. I ordered the beet salad and it was something I could have done at home.
We loved the food and wine selection that they make and grow!
Tastings were great as well as the tour. One of our favourite vineyards in the okanagan valley.
Vacationing in Kelowna, this vineyard has Excellent wines, enjoyed the wine tour and history of the pyriamid the experience was fabulous. Have already been out to the vineyard twice this week and will going out again with our friends who came into town tomorrow. The view is outstanding. Thank you
Share plate menu as opposed to a la carte dinner entrees was unexpected and disappointing. Had the risotto which was a feature item. It was dry and lacked flavor. Requested biscotti along with a latte for dessert. Despite serving biscotti alongside the crème brulee, the portion provided for 2 of us to share was pathetic - 1.5 thinly sliced biscotti. Although it was not an official menu item, the restaurant should have been able to improvise and provide a proper share plate of biscotti - even if the charge was similar to another dessert item.
The ambience and the view are fantastic! Our server was very friendly and definitely did his best to make it a great dining experience. Unfortunately the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed (to be fair, it was very busy) but we had a great time regardless. The wine is decent and food was overall quite good! Definitely recommend the pork belly
We booked for 6:15pm, party of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids). Server was brutal. She took her sweet time doing everything. She too forever to come back and take our orders, I had to ask for a wine list (it's a flipping winery), it took until 6:45 for her to even get us wine (once again, we're at a flipping winery). Our food finally arrived at 7:30, so we had 3 young kids who were starving by this time. I tried to ask for a manager, but it didn't seem like one was around. One of the folks working the tasting room tried to help, and they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine, but for service that brutal, it didn't really cut it. Top that off with our table being attacked by flies the whole time, and it was a really unpleasant experience. The only thing good I can say is that the food was decent. But with many other options available, I wouldn't go back or recommend it to anyone. Cedar Creek winery is not too far from here, and has way better service! Really poor job Summerhill.
Absolutely stunning view with amazing food. Our group of 10 enjoyed it very much. Thank you
Quite disappointed with the meal and service. Meal was ok, nothing spectacular for the pricing. My husband got the butcher block which was chewy and cold. Our server checked on us once, was not helpful we had to get everything from the person filling our waters. Then when we were done with dinner, we wanted to order dessert and was told that he's not going to bother bringing the dessert menu because the kitchen was 30min behind unless we really wanted dessert, plus the fact that the restaurant was closing in 45 min...Regardless there were other people who just got seated and haven't ordered their dinner yet. Nice venue but not impressed at all.
Was pleasantly surprised. Made a reservation for 7 for saturday night a day before and was worries the fact there was an availability was a sign that the food was not good quality. But the food was amazing. My husband is a foodie a was so happy with his meal. Like how the main portions are vegetarian based and then you can add on a protein. For a winery it was also very kid friendly with a kids menu and colouring. If you want a quiet romantic meal then be sure to book after 7:30 when the kids have gone ;)
Summerhill exceeded our expectations by far. I visited their venue on September 2 with my two sister-in-laws to be and we were not disappointed. The food, the wine, the view...it was all phenomenal. We will be back!
After arriving at 12 for lunch, we had to wait until 12:36 for our food order to be taken, at which point I made it very clear we had to have our bills settled by 2 due to another engagement we had for 3.
Our food took over a half hour to arrive at the table, and this is not an exaggeration because our server and the table teased about what would happen if it took more than a half hour. But I thought to myself, "it's five people, three of us are ordering the same thing, there's no way that it can take that long since I also told them about our time restrictions."
Not only did it take over the half hour to come, but also a half hour to see our server about getting drinks refilled too - at that point we'd already been there an hour. Our drinks had been empty for a while. When he showed up he informed us it'd be another ten minutes or so for the food. None of us were in the mood for more drinks at that point and opted for water.
I was really disheartened by the service, and then the quality of the dishes we'd ordered, especially because the last I had been there in 2013 the meal was one of the best meals I have ever had. I had talked it up to my sister and her best friend, and they were really disappointed.
So I didn't actually try the food, as we left shortly after being seated. I had some family in town for a special occasion, so I decided to take them out for a nice meal and show off the beauty of the area. We had arrived on time for our reservation after finishing our tasting (bought several bottles) and were seated inside. This was frustrating because the walk-in table immediately before us was seated on the patio, which to me is a main draw of the restaurant. I asked if we could sit on the patio, as we could see an open table, and was told they would see what they could do. The next party that arrived was then seated at that table. We felt pretty slighted, so rather than sit there stewing about things, we left for another restaurant. I'd recommend that reservations be followed up by a phone call to the restaurant if you are interested in enjoying their beautiful patio, as you don't want to leave as disappointed as we did.
Fabulous location with fantastic views Sun setting over water! HOWEVER we were very disappointed with our poor welcome when we arrived.A bit of a queue - half a dozen people in front of us, 15 minutes or so and we were to be seated next ( we had booked by the way) Waitress completely ignored us and seated couple who had only just arrived behind us!! - we felt insulted to say the least and almost walked out. Our table waitress was lovely though and quite professional.We enjoyed the meal, the wine and the view.
Gorgeous view of Lake Okanagan. Very tasty wines and food was excellent. Great portions and flavours. Will be coming back. Must try the Cipes Brut!! Best sparkling wine period.
