Hooded Merganser at Penticton Lakeside Resort
Fantastic venue with stunning views from everywhere. Great value, good selection of food. Perfect for that summertime Lunch and Rose afternoon
Our service was outstanding! Food excellent! Love the view and the breezes ...feels like we’re sitting outside but can stay warm!
I was happy with food and service, I just didn’t like that I had some coupons give to us for this place and I wasn’t allowed to use more then one at a time even there it didn’t say it anywhere on the coupon!! Wasn’t even allowed to split the bill and pay separate with two different coupons!!
Ambiance and service was good, food was substandard, not thoroughly cooked.
Great food and fantastic service! Really nice atmosphere.
Had an awesome dinner, our server was excellent went above and beyond!
Beautiful location with stunning views of the lake and hillsides. The garlic and brie appetizer was DELICIOUS as were the lamb and prime rib. Would definitely go back!
Everywhere had great views of the lake, food was good
It was very good to have breakfast at such a beautiful scenic restaurant.
It had the perfect ambiance for our anniversary date. The food was well proportioned and presented. The service was top notch. In the end we received our dessert on the house. It's become one of our favorite places to dine in the Okanagan.
This restaurant is great for the views, but the food could be better. Food took awhile to come out and some portions were smaller than expected. Beautiful restaurant and scenic view though.
Megan. Was exceptional. She made our special evening for my daughter-in-law ‘s Birthday just perfect. Many thanks to her. Food was very good and everyone should have the cheesecake or the crepe brûlée.! Nicely done for a wonderful place on the lake.
Over all the experience was excellent. We requested a table outside facing the lake, which we received which made for a perfect view. The only thing to note is the outside chairs are not very comfortable but other than that a great view, excellent service and a great value.
Special location by Okanagan Lake. Food good and prices competitive. Some updating (torn seat cover, dilapidated Canadian flag outside) required. Big negative is available parkade with useless payment machines that either are hard to read, reject cash or simply do not respond.
Amazing food, table & service! Portion sizes were excellent. My husband had the seafood pasta which was absolutely divine...and I had the ribs which were cooks perfectly and super scrumptious! The only thing I regret is not having enough room to try one of their fabulous looking desserts. We will definitely be back!!
Beautiful location with most tables having a lake view. Food was excellent but not fussy.
Excellent food, wonderful service! Fourth visit. It has been excellent each time!!
My husband and I enjoyed your delicious new plant based menu thank you for offering this new and rising way of eating.
Kind regards Lynn Parsons
Overall experience was pretty good. My wife’s dinner was good. My dinner of steak and vegetables came swimming in a pool of butter and was kind off putting. Beautiful location, server was excellent. Fair prices. Good wine list.
Amazing food and views! They opened up the window/doors and it was fantastic. Warm breeze. Food was great and the service was very good. Will be back.
We sat outside on the patio looking out over the lake. It was a send off for our friend who was moving to Holland. Perfect setting to say good bye to Penticton. I am just happy to be staying!
Loving the new plant based menu. Lots of choices for vegetarians and one person in our group is celiac so plenty of gluten free choices too. Haven’t been for a while but we’ll be back there soon!
We were sat next to the door and the waiting staff kept leaving the door open.
The filet mignon was superb as usual, cooking just right! The Black Forest Crèpes are the next best thing to Black Forest Cake!
Unsure. I go to this restaurant at least once a year while attending a conference. I love the atmosphere and scenery and the food has always been good. This time (May 2019) the food was not good at all. We couldn’t finish eating it.
Get together with friends. Server was great! Attentive and comical! Food was average. Dynamite rolls-lacked flavour and too much rice. Bitmibap had the freshness but lacked the Korean sauce/flavour. Beef was definitely tender-that was a nice surprise. New York steak/ lacked flavour. Portion for wonton soup was larger than expected- quite filling. Bellini was chilled and strong! Love the view there- just wished flavour of food - more than neutral and authentic if going for specific cuisines. Menu had good variety.
Amazing viewed and very good value for money. The halibut and tuna steak were really tasty. Lovely setting.
Lovely spot on the water. Went for dinner for my uncles 90th birthday, waitress was very patient and accommodating to elderly guests needs, which we really appreciated.Large portions for salads and bowls , mains on the small side but filling none the less. Cheese cake to die for, would definitely recommend.
We regularly go to the Hooded Merganser for breakfast and have been eat had any bad experiences.
Typical uninspired overpriced breakfast menu. Not a place for a quiet conversation
We were acknowledged quickly, water and wine came. Dinner order taken. An hour later dinner had not arrived. Finally a green salad, fortunately with a few cranberries to help disguise the lack of any dressing when our main course eventually came there was no apology for the time taken. We saw several other tables who arrived after us, get their meals. They had salmon or steak, we had a dinner salad and halibut. The halibut was over cooked, probably hard not to given the paucity of the piece, as were the green beans. We wer never offered either a refill of wine or water. Desert was not offered, indtead the bill arrived. What had been planned as a romantic evening turned very sour. Lunches have always been most enjoyable, however dinner is obviously something to be avoided.
We really appreciate that they’ve added a plant based menu, however other than the Beyond Meat burger, the other three plant based items were terrible! The “fondue” was so over cooked/microwaved it looked like hummus. The bbq jackfruit pizza had a very strong vinegary sauce and was inedible. The tacos were - meh!
Excellent restaurant 2nd time there ...server was attentive not overbearing food was well prepared, the only negative was my steak was cooked medium not medium rare as ordered but non the less delicious
We had a delicious meal here, and scrumptious dessert The service was quick and friendly. The views of the lake were incredible. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a high end meal in a classy environment.
Had a great stay at the lakeside resort hotel and an amazing dinner here, we had an awesome view of the lake while we ate and an super friendly server who kept our water topped up and offered more drinks as well as checked on us multiple times to ensure we were happy =) definitely will be coming back!
We had the best server. She was amazing. We will return when we are back in the area. Rose and Nik
Venue was amazing. Carol, our server was above and beyond.
Service was great. View is great. Food was very good. Place is dated and worn. It needs a refresh.
With reservation had a great table by window with view of lake.
Noisy but there was a large group in cocktail lounge, maybe conference..
Great service, excellent seafood pasta!
