Great dinner overall, very pleasant service from our server. Didn’t have a name tag but apparently she work at hillside for the past 15 years. She is very nice.
We have been to hillside restaurant for the past 6 years and I can say this dinner was the best. Great presentation, lots of flavours. If I need to be picky, the size of the main course a a little bit of the small size. Appetizers are fine.
I’ve been to naramata inn restaurant few time last year, excellent food. Your chef’s food is as good as naramata kitchen
Congratulations
See you soon!!

Sat on patio of course. No heaters, but they are on order. There is a new chef at the Bistro and apparently they are changing the menu soon. My husband and I ordered four dishes:
1. Smoked tomato bisque - delicious
2. Caprese salad - boring. Zero flavour. Under-seasoned. Maybe they missed the white balsamic? This was a rip off. I would not order this.
3. Gnocchi - spring peas and cheddar. Delicious, creamy, yum.
4. Lentil and quinoa lollipops. These came highly recommended and were underwhelming and under-seasoned. The smoked aioli needs some work. Acid? Meh. I wouldn't recommend this dish either ( and I eat a vegetarian diet)

Overall average, and this has traditionally been one of my favourite restaurants. I'm guessing the new chef has a lot to live up to from previous chefs. I'll go back to see what their new menu has to offer.

Chef Evan definitely is working his magic as everything was tasty and lots of options for the Vegetarian half at the table. Too bad it was so cold as Covid healthy rulings across BC forced everyone outside on the patio but the very helpful staff gave us blankets and hot water containers so we had lots of fun being tough Canadians ! Looking forward to some warm weather so we can really forgot about 2020 and enjoy a great new addition to the Naramata chef scene at such a nice familiar setting at Hillside. We will be back.

The food was awful, extremely salty and portions were very small, definetely does not worth what they charge. We were encorage to have menu convination for two and some of the plates had just one piece for one. The cheese table was pour and very salty, the duck confit was so salty that we could not eat it, furthermore the rice was hard not totally cooked and it was only one piece for two what did not matter in our case because we could not eat it, the parmesan and truffle popcorn tasted lake regular popcorn. On toop of that it was very cold and they did not have any patio heaters. We drove an hour to eat there and what a deception, definetly won’t go again

The food was really good but the portions were quite small. Wife ordered the tuna and it was tiny, more appetizer size. I order the pork belly and scallops which was delicious but on the smaller side. Very few veggie options on the menu. Service was friendly and food came quickly. Ambience is decent, but I don’t think reflective of the pricing.
I would recommend ordering more than one course for sure. Overall, quality food but small portions and left a little disappointed overall.

Service was great.

Food, we found the duck to be incredibly over salted and flavours overpowered the duck. The crab Caesar was just not that flavourful and was expensive. Mac and cheese was amazing but very small . Pork tacos delicious. Charcuterie board would be nice with some old cheese.

Overall food was expensive for what we got.

First time visiting with new chef. Our server was quite good, really on the spot with drink refills. Noticed a bug in a glass of wine and promptly replaced the whole glass. Food took a long time to arrive. We had the offer for 2 people which included popcorn - why not send this out right away? That would have been nice. Scallop dish was a standout. Cheese selections also quite good. Sauce with duck confit very salty, almost too much. Lava cake was good, like the dehydrated orange, would have been strengthened by a less sweet ice cream, maybe plain vanilla.

We thoroughly enjoyed Hillside's dinner special which started off with a lovely charcuterie platter, followed by a kale caesar salad, wild mushroom risotto and melt-in-your-mouth pork cheeks on pureed cauliflower. A decadent chocolate dessert completed a perfect evening out. Definitely recommend the wine pairings as suggested by our server.

We took advantage of the 3 course dinner for two ($50 each). The dinner featured a cheese board with warmed olives to start. The cheese board included 3 cheeses, a honey spread, chive crackers, prunes and spiced nuts. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the only thing that would have made it better was a walk-through of what we were eating and where it was from at delivery. House made? Locally sourced?

Our Main was pork cheeks with mushroom risotto and kale caesar with parmesan flakes and pork belly. The pork cheeks were incredibly tender and flavourful, one of the best kale salads I’ve ever had (tender) and the mushroom risotto was incredible, my spouse who does not generally like mushrooms went back for seconds! The meal was served family style.

Desert was a chocolate custard with biscotti- super creamy with the perfect amount of sweetness.

Staff were incredibly friendly, our water glasses were always full and our second glass of wine came with a fresh glass. Tables were physically distanced and all staff wore face masks. We would have purchased a bottle of wine if asked.

Dinner at Hillside was great! We had been there last summer and now wanted to take friends who didn’t know the place and it lived up to our expectations.
Our only critique would be that they still served and encourage family style dining. That does not seem like appropriate Covid protocol, so we were disappointed by that.
