Everything around it pleases the eyes. Food and service was great . Will definitely go back in future
First time at Miradoro, we will definitely come again. The setting of the restaurant and the views are incredible. The service and the food were great.
Great meal , and an outstanding wine list and view!
As we live in the area, we eat at Miradoro 4 or 5 times per summer. Always have the soup, Margarita pizza and a bottle of wine! This is our go to place for lunch when friends or family visit.
An amazing winery and restaurant. We have taken many guests there and they all rave about the meatball sandwich. The view and staff are awesome. We could watch the Oliver fire being attended to. Great day!
Dear PamG, Thank you for your comments and repeat visits. We agree that the meatball sandwich is the real deal and we thank you for your continued support. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We ‘be been many times ourselves and have taken both family and friends. August 7 was our anniversary and we wanted a special evening. The food was as we expected but as the restaurant was fully booked, as we expected in the summer months, we found the service somewhat lacking. When we asked several times for some citrus for our sparkling water it took 3 requests and when I requested an appropriate wineglass for my wine after 3 requests to several servers I finally went to the bar myself and traded my ‘house glass’ for an appropriate glass from the bartender who selected several glasses and polished one for me before completing the trade. This is more in keeping with our expectations at Miradoro. All in all we will, of course, return.
Mister on the patio would be a wonderful addition!!
This was our second time here and it was a wonderful time. It seemed to be a busy evening and our order took a little longer to arrive than some of the tables around us but the food was delicious and our servers very polite and prompt. We had the pleasure of seeing some wildlife step out of the vineyard and walk past our view and it was quite special. We very much enjoyed our meal.
Dear Matt, Thank you for your repeat visit and review. It's great to read that you had wonderful dinner with us and we look forward to taking care of you in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Beautiful setting for a fabulous evening. The food, staff and view were spectacular. Everything was so good, we almost booked again the following evening - but decided we should try some place new. We will definitely be back next year. So good!!!
Hello Valorie, Thank you for your visit and review. It's fantastic that your expectations were met on all fronts and we look forward to you visiting next year. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
It was great
, great steak and vegeterian options
Awesome views from the patio, attentive service first rate food and fine wine of course.
People were seated unnecessarily tight. Throw in the toddlers that would have been happier with hot dogs at the beach, and we were happy to be done and gone.
Dear DavidT, Thank you for your reservation and review. It's fantastic that you enjoyed the view, service, menu and wine list. We offer our apologies for the table layout on your visit, I will be sure to review our floorplan to ensure all tables are correctly placed. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We went twice to Miradoro in the past week, and both times were outstanding! Last Thursday I had the meatballs appy and mussels w/chirizo...yum, and yesterday it was the grilled cheese.....this is not your standard sandwich at all...has to be tried to describe! Our group was a party of 4 both times, and there is nothing that was below 5 star; the food, the view, the service etc. Will continue to go back as often as possible.
Dear Linda, Thank you greatly for your visits and comments. We are so pleased to have had you enjoy all aspects of your meals and we look forward to you stopping by again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
I had the lamb and the toffee chocolate dessert as well as the charcuterie to start. Everything was fantastic. And of course the wine, my god the Pino Noir was amazing. Cheers and thanks for a great night
Dear Connor, Thank you for your comments and reservation. It's super that you liked all your menu choices-do stop by again next time you are in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We have been here several times and there are many pluses. The views and service are top notch.
However, the noise levels are such that we could barely carry on a conversation outside on the gorgeous deck.
Dear PattiC, Thank you for your repeat visit and comments. It is so pleasing that you enjoy our service and views. Our apologies that the atmosphere was more energetic than when you visited previously and please know that we would be only to happy to relocate you to another table if you were to encounter this in the future. We look forward to taking care of you again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Great food and had a lovely table for 2 on the patio.
Hello FelicityH, It's fantastic to read that you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Had a small reunion, had to wait 40 minutes for food.
Food was great but slow service
The ambience is amazing, the food was okay.
The appetizers tasted very good, but our main courses weren’t as good as we expected them to be. The fish and steak were good but the sides didn’t taste that well and were kind of boring.
The daily special menu (salmon with risotto) was the best of the main courses.
Hello, Thank you for your comments and visit. Our genuine apologies that you did not enjoy some of the accompaniments to your proteins. We will shortly be launching our late Summer menu so will take your review into consideration. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Absolutely beautiful spot, but we waited over an hour for food! The food was just average - a bit fussy. We were just four people and the restaurant wasn't near full. A bit disappointing because I could see how lovely it could have all been.
Dear Shannercan, Thank you for your reservation and review. Our genuine apologies for any timing missteps on your visit. We will endeavour to address these in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We booked late and they were able to accommodate us on the patio. It’s a beautiful view of the valley looking south. The service was wonderful. The food was amazing, try the charcuterie tray. We each had the three glass wine flight, a nice experience if you don’t have time to do a full tasting in the wine lounge. It was a little loud as the band was setting up for their monthly concert. Bit of a free show honestly. Will go back again.
Hello CobaltBill, Thank you for your comments and visit. It's fantastic that you enjoyed everything we have to offer and we're looking forward to taking care of you in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
This was our third visit to Miradoro. I booked using Opentable but wish I would have called for better front table on deck. Menu was limited, could have had more selection. We wanted to order the feature appetizer but after we ordered we were told it was sold out. Our reservation was at 7.... already out of feature?? Meat balls were great. Pizza good. Warm olives and local hot peppers yummy.
Tinhorn Creek Wine was acceptable.... hard to compare as we were in Vancouver at Gardino drinking beautiful Italian wine the night before.
View, mist coming down from rafters, cleanliness, peaceful serenity of being part of the vast vineyards is a feeling like no other. Groundingly blissful!
Hello, Thank you for your repeat visit and comments. Our apologies that the feature lamb rib appetizer was exhausted by the time of your reservation. It was the first time that we had offered that menu item and it turned out to be quite the popular choice. In the future I hope to offer it again or perhaps even make it a regular menu item. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your experience. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
This place is beautiful with awesome food. I love trying new and different foods or essentially a remix of a favourite. This place does that incredibly without being weirdly out there, if ya get what I mean. I loved it and will absolutely go back. Great value. The sangria was delish!!!
Dear RachelB, Thank you for your reservation and review. It's pleasing to hear your response to the creativity of our menu. Our kitchen team works extremely hard to create dishes that are familiar to some but adventurous to others and we are so glad you enjoyed everything we have to offer. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
My wife and I try always to squeeze in a visit to Miradoro if we're in the neighbourhood. The location is so gorgeous we could enjoy ourselves just sitting on the balcony with a glass of water watching the sun set over the valley.
This visit was a late dinner with the young teenage grandchildren following a grueling day of water sports. After we got over the issue of the menu options having unfamiliar names, everything was great. We all agreed that the food was delicious. The service was attentive attentive without being even slightly overbearing. I'm sure it would have been that way even if the boss hadn't been in the background issuing orders like one of those tough but fair top sergeants you wouldn't want to cross.
Dear smaxt, Thank you for your repeat reservation and review. It's so pleasing that you can enjoy our offerings by yourselves and also with younger members of your family. Do stop by again when you are in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
I never order steak in restaurants but someone I trust told me the 12 oz dry-aged ribeye was extraordinary so my companion and I shared one, along with some appetizers. We weren't misled. The meat was exquisite, perfectly seasoned, and the accompaniments, especially an emulsion of black garlic, complemented the meat perfectly. We opted for the recommended wine pairings, and they were also perfect.
Dear MollyT, Thank you for your visit and comments. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your steak and wine pairings so much. Please stop by again when you're in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
The restaurant was located in the middle of a vineyard and we were seated on the patio with a beautiful view of the Okanagan Valley. The server was very friendly and answered any questions we had concerning the menu as well as providing information on the winery. Our food was delicious and arrived reasonably quickly although we were enjoying the spectacular view while we waited. All in all a wonderful dining experience.
Dear Stewart W, Thank you for your reservation and review. We're so pleased to read that you enjoyed all aspects of your visit and we look forward to you stopping by again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Very nice, great atmosphere and a good time was had by all six of us
Hello AnaE, It's fantastic that you enjoyed your time with us and we look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
We loved our dinner at Miradoro... we sat outside on the balcony looking over the vally and vineyards. The weather was perfect for eating outdoors. We all loved our meal and the service was excellent. We just told friends about it and they are hoping to dine there tonight... Thank you!
Dear Kamd0n, Thank you for your reservation and recommending us to others. It's great to hear that you loved all aspects of your dinner. We look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Four of us ate an early dinner here on July 23. Great location, awesome views, and extremely tasty food. Our server didn't have a lot of experience, but compensated with kindness. My only complaint is that half of the chicken on my plate was only half cooked. Didn't realize that until I was nearly done my meal so I wasn't about to ask for a new meal. Assumed it would be comped given the health risks but, instead, I was offered a free dessert (which I never order).
Dear Mauwzola, Thank you for your visit and review. We're genuinely sorry that you were disappointed with your chicken dish. I can assure you that our preparation calls for each piece is cooked twice-first sous vide and then roasted in the forno oven to order, so we have no explanation or excuse for your dish to be underdone. We hope that you'll choose to rejoin us in the future. Sincerely, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Our first winery restaurant since moving to the South Okanagan. Took a visiting relative for lunch at Miradora. The view over the valley from the deck was amazing. Food was excellent....ample portions, excellent presentation, quality of the food and flavour was wonderful. We will be back.
Dear BrianC, So glad you found us after moving to the area. It's fantastic that you loved your experience and we look forward to taking care of you in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
It is a lovely setting but one side outside has water spritzers on folks and the side we sat on does not. We just felt hot and the service was slow so took a long time. Food was good. Not sure I'd rush back. Winery was so so as well. Nothing wowed us.
Dear eater, Thank you for your review and comments. Our apologies that you did not like your table location, if you visit us again please let us know and we'd be only too happy to accommodate you elsewhere. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Awful experience. Slowest service, rude owner and the food was not good.
Cocktail was poorly made, the octopus was incredibly spicy, the paella was like gruel, the wild boar carbonara was good, but the service was incredibly slow and unfriendly (by the owner), who was outright rude.
Another reviewer mentioned the $1 charge for parmesan - yes it is true! LOL
They don't deserve your business.
Dear VictoriaC, Our staff have a very different record of events. Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
You can't charge exorbitant rates (even for an excellent meal) and then have an extra charge of $1 for parmesan cheese! I haven't seen anything so ridiculous in 30 years of fine dining.
Dear BrentH, Thank you for your review and visit. We will endeavour to address your parmesan issue with our front and back of house teams. It's great to hear that you liked your menu choices and the venue. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Our server, Emily was excellent, very exuberant and positive. She insisted we have a great time! She was pretty awesome. Appetizers were outstanding, octopus, and the clam and chorizo. The pasta was a little undercooked and we couldn’t decide whether it was a cacio e pepe hold the cheese, add bacon or a carbonara with a lot of pepper. The steak was a little underdone for a medium but the flavor was wonderful and the refried, mashed scalloped potato-thingy was amazing. Dessert was more a mousse than a budino but it was still pretty tasty. It’s hard right? With tip our bill was $330 for two people and when a restaurant charges what they charge, one really starts to look at the details and be critical of the food. Vice versa, one would overlook minor details when a restaurant charges less. Overall, Miradoro is a really positive experience, it’s just really expensive too. I’ll be back after I replenish my back account. :-)
Hello, Thank you for your comments and visit. We value guest feedback on our menu and will be sure to pass on your comments regarding your entrees and desserts to our Executive Chef. It's positive to note that you enjoyed the service and atmosphere. We look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
The patio views were stunning and the food was beautifully plated, but unfortunately Miradoro didn’t live up to our expectations. The service was slow and infrequent, and we waited a long time for our food. The wine that was paired with our entrees wasn't served until we had eaten most of the food. Multiple tables around us also sent unacceptable plates back to the kitchen. Overall, it was a beautiful spot with delicious sangria, lamb belly, and well-paired wine, but the service was disappointing.
Dear SipSavourRepeat, Thank you for your reservation and comments. Our sincere apologies for any timing missteps that occurred when you joined us, we will endeavour to have these corrected for any future visits. It's pleasing to note that you enjoyed the venue and all the items that you ordered. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
The gentleman who seated us was short and disinterested. Our server seemed to want us to order quickly, wasn’t attentive at all. It was the worst service by a restaurant server of this caliber restaurant we have experienced. Both courses were lukewarm. I was not offered Parmesan for my pasta so requested some. I was informed there would be an additional charge for that. Overall it was disappointing. The room and views were beautiful though.
Hello, Thank you for comments and visit. We offer our genuine apologies that you did not enjoy your time with us. Your experience description is not one that we are known for and for that we are truly sorry. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
A very noisy big party sat next to us. Ordered the rib eye steak with medium, but turned out to be very rare.
Dear EvaL, Thank you for your reservation and comments. Our apologies that your steak needed longer on the grill, had we have known we would have been only too happy to cook this a little further for you. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Food and views were amazing at this restaurant, however service was very slow. Waitress were friendly and tried to give us update about the food. But at the end we waited for almost 1 hour for food. Overall, I would go back for food.
Dear NataliaD, Thank you for your visit and review. Our sincere apologies on the timing of your dishes, we will endeavour to address any inconsistencies with the kitchen. We are glad to hear that you did enjoy the menu items chosen and we look forward to having you join us again in the future. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Beautiful restaurant overlooking the vineyards with a patio with an amazing view. Food was great especially the pizzas. Thin crust stone oven with top grade ingredients. Service was friendly.
Wines by the glass were overpriced especially considering they were all from Tinhorn.
Would definitely recommend.
Hello ChrisG, Thank you for your visit, review and recommendation to others. It is so pleasing that you enjoyed the food, service and ambience. We look forward to having you in again. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
My wife's salmon was clearly undercooked yet we felt we were in the wrong by sending it back. I know how to cook fish and when it has a slimy, almost translucent sheen to it in the middle, it's not cooked. They cooked another piece of salmon for my wife and as they called it, "well done". Any attempt at an apology was half-hearted at best.
It was cooked much better the second time (and not well done, it was perfect) but no apology, nothing. Just the feeling we were wrong about the way the fish was cooked. If I had wanted sushi, I would have gone to a sushi restaurant.
All restaurants make mistakes. It's not the fact the fish wasn't cooked, it's the way it was handled. Because if this, I rate this visit 2 stars.
Dear ARM1, Thank you for your comments and visit. Our sincere apologies that your wife's salmon was not cooked correctly and that a full verbal apology was not given at the time. We will endeavour to improve on any inconsistencies with this front of house service step. I am pleased that you let us adjust the dish and that she liked it on the second occasion. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Restaurant was amazing. We were seated on the patio as we requested, the wind came up and chased us inside. The team worked very quickly to accommodate us (and everyone else) to relocate inside.
Charcuterie was excellent !!!! We will be back!
Hello, Thank you so much for joining us, the wind that day made for a tricky service and we are very glad that we could get you relocated quickly to keep enjoying your meal. We look forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
Wonderful setting overlooking the wine valley below. We had covered outdoor seating which allowed for the best way to enjoy the view. The food was outstanding and the service very good as well. Would highly recommend for a special night out.
Dear HuskyHans, Thank you for your visit and review. It's fantastic to hear you enjoyed all aspects of your visit and we love having guests recommend us to others. Do stop by again when you're in the area. Kind Regards, Sam Lymbery General Manager
