Hooded Merganser at Penticton Lakeside Resort
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!
We purchased the rib-eye steak ($40) and the new york steak ($34) and both were supposed to be cooked medium, they were beyond well done and tough as ever. The server didn't check in shortly after received so we were unable to mention it in a timely manner. Green beans were cooked until mush. Not worth the price, very expensive for a relatively easy meal to make. Calamari to start was very good though.
Great food, great service!
Service, view and food were all good. Mary was an excellent server. Our table enjoyed the Hood dynamite rolls, beef burger, chicken club and beef dip. Caesar salad was also good.
I enjoy and love the food, the service is excellent and definitely I will recommend this restaurant.
Great place with great food. More of a entertaining atmosphere than a quiet romantic feel but a great evening non the less!
Beautiful location, we had a great table with an amazing view of the lake. Our food was quick and was very good quality and tasted great. Our server was polite and gave great explanations to any questions we had. Very romantic and a very positive experience. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere! Would reccomend the garlic and brie! Our server was amazing! A memorable experience for my husbands birthday! Thank you!
Great restaurant. The view makes up for the average food quality.
Great view! Very peaceful to enjoy a Sunday brunch. Drove in from Osoyoos for a nice brunch. As always , friendly service and delicious food!
We were there for breakfast and it was delicious!
If I had any complants, I would say we had to wait quite a while for the waitress to collect payment and I would recommend better coffee! Minor things....overall impression was great and I would return.
The food was amazing and our se=ice was spectacular
We love the location and the food is always great.
It's our goto 'pre-concert' spot.
Beautiful setting, great ambience and great food. All round good value. The service was exceptional.
Always a beautiful restaurant. The location is unbeatable. The service is great and the food is great as well!
Steaks were cooked perfectly. Great service and low key vibe.
I love this place, although this trip wasn't what I'd hoped. Felt extremely rushed, server couldn't read us as having a romantic evening and constantly interrupted us. Food was not as good as usual, hence the low rating. Every other time I've been it's been fantastic. Unfortunately for this Valentine's weekend get away, not the best.
Food was decent, love the atmosphere, waitress was fun with a great sense of humour. Classy without being pretentious, menu could have a few more selections though such an Oscar option for the steak..... definitely will return!
Great food and I always enjoy the waiter that serves me there
Had the fish, a little on the salty side. Partner had the tenderloin with shrimp was excellent. Done perfectly. Service was hit and miss, the table before us had their meal cleared and paid before us and we were done before them.
the appetizers were excellent, also the soup, my filet steak was tender, medium raw, but my wife
kept chewing and was not so pleased, then the dessert again was also delicious.
The decoration, the whole set up was outstanding.
Sorry to say that we did not like the music at all.
I would. Service was great, food was delicious. Got a bit loud with a large party that was there.
I was not sold on the Santa Fe Salad...the chicken was over-spiced, however, the rest of the salad was good. Last time I was there (a few months ago), I had the Braised Beef sandwich. It was tasty, but not very generous with the filling 😕. I’ll try one more time at Hooded Merganser, because my friend likes it there & the view is spectacular!
Great venue. Food was just “ok” . Our server was lovely but I think we caught them on a night where they were understaffed. I would go again but maybe not for a special occasion.
Wonderful spot/view, decent food, okay service. The food came with scallions all over and in it, which was not listed on the menu. It also said it came with bacon but it only came with a few bacon bits. They should update the accuracy of their menu. The wait staff appeared more interested in gathering and chatting amongst themselves than actually waiting on their tables. Also there was lipstick on one of the water glasses. For it's price point it could be classier
The meal was fabulous.
Our server started off terrific but quickly become annoyed with us particularly at the payment stage.
My friends do not eat out and have never been to the Hood. We were there on my recommendation for my birthday. They are not familiar with tipping standards and made an honest mistake with the tip. He quickly changed the amount but until that happened the server was un impressed and came across rude.
That aside it was good.
The waitress was attentive and certainly was able to take our orders with no mistakes.
Had a great brunch with my parents on New Years day. The menu was limited so I didn't get to have what I actually wanted, but it was still good. One table close by was extremely loud but they left soon enough.
The view is amazing, great service and fresh food.
