This was our first time here, we came to celebrate a birthday and enjoy an evening with friends. The only thing that ruined our evening was a very loud and obnoxious female guest at a table for 10 in our area. My impression of Bogners is that it is, or should be a place you can enjoy a quiet evening with good friends, good food and great service.

We reserved online and were unaware of a large event booked at the same time
the crew in the event were very noisy (obnoxious) compared to the quit enjoyable ambiance we had experienced when first arriving
A heads up when greeted at the door would have been appreciated
to reschedule
service and food was enjoyable
second thoughts on a return visit

Sorry our Restaurant was busy that night Ray, Large groups can be unpredictable and with Christmas party season in fully swing we never know. We had already block every Friday and Saturday Nights (in Open table) all the way until Dec 20th as they are heavily group based and that way this does effect you the customer. I hadn't anticipated that group having so much fun., so we didn't block it off. Feel free to give me a call and I'll make sure your next visit is special.

We've been a few times for the 3 course menu and found the food to be delicious and creative. The menu changes every week based on what's in season and the chef's inspirations. The value for money is excellent, the atmosphere cozy and the service friendly and efficient. It has become one of our favorite places to eat in Penticton.

Owner was our server. He was very attentive. I asked if organic wine was on the menu, and he offered a local winery, not on the menu. We were thrilled with the offering. Meal was delicious!

Overall good. It was unfortunate that the restaurant was a bit chilly, but the item that impacted us most was the couple seated next to us who loudly discussed their plans, their children, upcoming events and amusing items on their phones. It was much nicer when they left.

The food and the service were both fairly good, nothing stood out as amazing. The main issue I had is that it took 3 or 4 attempts ordering wine before they had a bottle we were asking for. Considering they only sell wines from vineyard surrounding the restaurant, this is embarrassing.

First visit to Bogners. Was expecting fine dining but this was more rustic. We went with the choose your own 3-course tasting menu (they don’t do anything a la carte and instead have 3 different “tasting menus”); the food was good (my halibut main was delicious but just slightly overcooked — first bite great but being in parchment, it held the heat and kept cooking). We love Penticton but it doesn’t have a huge restaurant scene. Bogners was good but not amazing.

I was excited to visit this place because the reviews, but I kind disappointed little bit, only 3 courses on the menu and we have ordered the same course. We have ordered 5 courses $45.00 We know it’s small dishes but we think for two people the portions are little but too small! Special the ravioli may or may not have 10 pieces, I have problem with that. Otherwise the food tasted great! I hope they will increasing the portion little bit bigger for two!

Bogners completely exceeded expectations. I will definitely return when I'm in town! Each meal of the 5 course menu was delicious, and reasonably priced. Our waiter was fantastic, and had deep knowledge of each wine pairing.

Darin never disappoints. The combination of flavors and textures are outstanding and the wine pairings compliment the dishes. Sheila is always gracious and presents Darin’s creations with knowledge. This is our favorite restaurant and we love bringing friends and family when they visit us to show off the best upscale restaurant that delivers world class dishes at an incredibly reasonable price. Bogner’s is up there with the best we’ve experience in our extended international travels.

We loved our experience at Bogner's. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. We were the first table at their opening, so it wasn't very busy therefore I can't comment on the noise level. The atmosphere is so wonderful and the owner is a gem. He was also our server and took the time to explain every dish and to answer any questions we had. I wish I lived in Penticton so I could go there on a regular basis!

We are long time fans of Bogner’s and never miss it when visiting the city. The Chef is very big on the concept of farm to table and fresh, local ingredients - and it shows in his food. He was out on the floor and spent some time talking with us at the end of our meal. His passion for food made with fresh ingredients grown on site or locally is very obvious, and he is keen to adjust to a kid friendly menu should the need arrive - also with the fresh and tasty ingredients! Great value with his tasting menu options, a wonderful selection of wines or wine pairings, all set in a cozy room with character and ambiance. A must not miss when in Penticton. Thanks!

Greated upon arrival and the hostess was already expecting us with waters already on the table. :) The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us adequate time! The food was to die for, everything was made in house and was fulk of flavours we have never had before. This place is a must try in the Okanagan!
