The Bistro honours the agricultural pedigree of our region with local, seasonal ingredients that reach both into the history of our site, and the Okanagan Valley as a whole. Plus it's a beautiful spot by the lake with an unparalleled view.

We source all our ingredients from local purveyors. We adhere to a strict “from scratch” policy where everything is made by hand and herbs are plucked fresh from the garden. And needless to say, we’ve got the perfect wine for all of that. Or beer. We have that too.

The pizza was very overpriced and my friend had the lamb pizza and found 2 pieces of thin lamb on it, both pizzas were very dry with hardly any toppings.

We love Fitz! Great for a special occasion or casual lunch. The view from the dining terrace is like nothing else and while the menu is currently quite limited, we enjoyed our selections and look forward to the expanded menu as high season comes:) Service and atmosphere are amazing!

So sadly we made this reservation received confirmation & a reminder the day before however when we arrived and we're informed the bistro was actually closed for the season & had been for a couple weeks.
The location is spectacular & hopefully we can return another time.
We did feel that the management may have considered a 20$ GIft Certificate to encourage us to return.
Thanks

Fantastic venue with a view to share with guests.
We had a casual lunch with wine and beer but did not wine taste,
Staff were attentive and friendly. Good knowledge of their menu.
Prices were high for pizza but we looked forward to their fire roasted crust. Was disappointed that they were so scarce on toppings. Our guest commented he could count 2 pieces of pepperoni on his pricey pizza as we had the same lack of toppings on ours.
Salad was delicious for our other friend.
Please listen to your customers and give them what they are paying for.

The staff and Chef's bent over backwards to make the experience and food special. We felt spoiled and were more than satisfied. Just a hint for the nasty bees.....dishes of whole cloves on the table would help.

I wish there were more gluten free options. Easy to have a GF bun for a hamburger. Pizza is big at the bistro, GF dough does exist.

It would be nice if the wine tasting fee of $5.00 was waived if you had lunch or dinner, even though they are separate areas.

It was impressive that they brought the "little person" of our group some ice cream at the end of the meal.

Only criticism is that the food - eggs benny and chicken waffle - were only luke warm (particularly the egg). Still very tasty but disappointing that food comes out of the kitchen anything less than hot!

Amazing views! Very nice decor and modern winery concept. But that's about it.... Unfortunately the food didn't match the atmosphere. I guess we expected more from the experience. We came here for brunch on Sunday; here are my highlights.
The food was brought out timely and the service was attentive. Everything tasted fine, however it just lacked some interest. It was kind of boring and sloppy....Let me explain, the avocado benny that I ordered actually showed a little brown discolouration on the avocado and also contained very little avocado. The dry crispy potato chunks that came with the eggs Benedict reminded me of a hotel buffet, this dish also came with a side salad.... Chef! great imagination, pre washed arugula with a vinaigrette dressing. It surprises me that chefs don't utilize the amazing fruit that is in such abundance. But wait we also ordered the expensive arugula salad that featured pear. I think I counted four this slices of pear. Really! It's pear overload in the okanagan right now, my plate should been a pear bounty. Overall It reminded me of a hotel breakfast buffet, definitely not a bistro.

Service and wines were great, although wines are still double the price to buy at the wine shop. Pizzas were good but the pig and pear was pretty skimpy on toppings. The location is awesome!

Beautiful spot for lunch. Great view, nice service. Good selection of wine. More than ample parking. Central meeting place between Kelowna and Penticton. Limited menu, but enough to satisfy most cravings. Not inexpensive! Typical Okanagan winery restaurant prices.

We enjoyed a lovely meal surrounded by breathtaking view of the valley. We tried the meat and cheese board to start. It had a great variety of locally made products that were fantastic. Followed by the most mind delicious wood cooked forno pizza I have ever had. The crust was perfect!! I would defiantly come back for the pizza over and over again.

Beautiful food presentation both times I have been. Food is average to good with some interesting options but woefully lacking in vegetarian options. A foodie and a vegetarian for 30 years, actually taking a topping off a pizza really isn't the same thing. I can vouch for that.
The view of course is stunning. I would definitely return just for that but having eaten the only two vegie options available other than salad I probably wouldn't go back for the food. When I had the risotto it was a bit overcooked and mealy but tasted fine.The pizza had two hairs in it.
Staff seemed very inexperienced.
But I still think it is a great place to go and to take out of town guests.

Fantastic service and incredible dishes. The spectacular view, was equally matched by the amazing glasses of Fitzpatrick Brut. It may not be as well known as some of the big Okanagan winery restaurants, but it is certainly better than the bigger names. Take the drive and enjoy.

Fitzpatrick Family Vineyards has to be one of the best places for a great wine and an incredible view in the okanagan. The food was all delicious and executed well. I had the crab cakes and the catch of the day with the chocolate bomb for dessert. Our waiter Daniel was super friendly and obviously well polished in the serving industry. He did a fantastic job. Will definitely be back!
