The Hooded Merganser was designed to provide guests with a lakeside experience like no other. Vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows have made us the place to be during storm watching season. The outdoor patio is incredible during the warmer months. The menu features delicious contemporary cuisine cooked to perfection in the open kitchen. Enjoy the superb selection of hard-to-find Okanagan wines from our cellars. Tie up your boat at the marina and come in for a truly enjoyable time.

    We visited Hooded Merganser twice while we were in Penticton area for a wedding. From the moment we were seated at the table overlooking the lake, the service, food and general vibe were great. I had the ahi tuna poke bowl which was delicious. Hubby ordered the fish and chips and said it was delicious. I'm sure it could have fed two people quite easily. Wine/beer selection isn't extensive but I'm sure there is something on there for anyone who enjoys that. Even though the restaurant was quite full on a Wednesday night, you could talk comfortably and still be heard. I would highly recommend visiting for a nice meal with a great view.

    An enjoyable evening even if the food really wasn't so great. We've had better food here, but we know that getting staff is a continual headache for all restaurants, so we tend to cut everyone some slack. The staff were attentive even if they were probably covering too many tables. Great views and ambiance make this definitely worth the visit and we hope that next time we dine here we'll see the food return to previous higher quality standards. Overall decent value for money and a nice place to take visitors.

    The service was excellent from start to finish. My only complaint is that I thought salad portions were small for $18.00. Expected more substance.

    It was a great experience. Our waitress was excellent as was the young lady who greeted us at the door and seated us. The view is spectacular!! You can view the lake from almost anywhere in the restaurant. The drinks were very good. We also found the prices reasonable. We had the salmon and it was excellent.

    Very noisy. Took my wife out for dinner here. Did not get the evening we had hoped for. Did not acknowledge her birthday. Dinner was okay but not as good as previous visit when we had the same order. Server was good although she did not introduce herself because it was busy. Just too loud for a quiet dinner!

    Unbelievable. We are from Alberta, so fresh Okanagan ingredients are always a treat. The tomato Broccocini salad is a MUST, the balsamic reduction on that salad is amazing. I would highly recommend. Then we got the seafood linguine and the salmon as our mains. The seafood linguine was good considering this is not a pasta restaurant. But the salmon was perfectly cooked and the mashed potatoes were creamy and delicious! Outside of food, our server, Chris, was excellent. As well, the view of the water was a treat (again coming from the prairies). I will definitely be coming back, it is not a matter of if, but when I come back to Penticton.

    The Hooded Merganser has become a family tradition for many birthdays. The food, service and above all, the lakeside location and views from nearly every table are very special. If I had any slight comment, it would be that only 3 local beers were on offer and none of them were ales. Also the lady refilling the water glasses splashed water significantly over the table when topping up 2 of 3 persons glasses! Not what you might expect in such a good restaurant. But the food was great, menu varied and we had a lovely evening celebrating our son's birthday. We'll be back next birthday!
