    We love the Hillside. The wait staff is outstanding and the environment is good. The spaced table placement allows for easy conversation. The food is excellent. We always feel we have had ample with our choices. The wait staff are good judges of what is enough for one’s group. Its a sharing menu and not extensive, but tasty and interesting. Something for everyone.

    Wine tasting was slow. Waited for it to come out but never did so we left. Had lunch at the bistro. Was a set price of $50 that you picked an appetizer and an entree. Food was not great. Service was good and location has a good view of the lake

    Hillside Winery & BistroResponded on October 5, 2022Thank you for your review and we appreciate the honest feedback. We will be sure to address timing with our wine shop team. For the Bistro, our menu does change seasonally so we hope you will give us another chance in the future for improvement :) Cheers!

    Beautiful flowering garden setting and friendly service. Very attentive and knowledgeable service. Everything tasted wonderful. We enjoyed the Beet and poached pear salad with blue cheese, and a delicious mushroom and egg spread. We both enjoyed the best Duck Confit that we have had in a long time. A wonderful way to enjoy our last few hours in Naramata.

    Not the wow we hoped for. Food was ok, all dishes a bit cold. Service a little grumpy but warmed up. Felt like we were being rushed through. Then told to move as not allowed to sit in the garden area after our meal to finish drink’s despite asking and checking this was ok. Our group spent nearly $800 on our visit & I would have expected better.

    Hillside Winery & BistroResponded on September 28, 2022Oh no! Thank you for your feedback and we will be addressing with our service team immediately as this is not the standard we strive for here at Hillside. We are continuly improving our training for Bistro and Kitchen teams to create the best experience. We do hope you will give us another try in the future for a proper Hillside experience we are known for :)

    We have been to Hillside many times, but feel the value for the dining experience isn’t there anymore. Entrees are very expensive but didn’t taste that great- FYI- we don’t mind paying over 30 for an entree if it’s great. The best part of our meal was the warm olives and the cheese scone. I also don’t love many of their wines. ’m sad to say they might be off our list after 10 years :(

    This is the third time we have visited Hillside bistro; we are out-of-towners, so it has been quite a few years between each visit. Each time has been a good experience, but I think this last time is the best. Great service, enjoyed sitting on the patio and the food was excellent ----- not to mention the Pinot Noir!!! Thank you, look forward to our next chance to visit.
