Once again we had an incredible meal at Infusions. This time we experienced the delights offered at the buffet. The variety of choices was unbelievable, and we attempted to sample far too many. Our group of 8 were all impressed.

We were there with a group of 5. Most of us did not like the pay parking; this was new to us. It will be the reason we will not come back, although we enjoyed the food. It was a little noisy and busy with the clients walking up and down to the buffet. I have to mention that our group consists of all octogenarians. We don't like noise, period. I hope lots of younger people will enjoy the food, which is good.

I have had a lunch and a dinner at Infusions in last two months and do not hesitate in giving the highest appraisal for the quality of the food, the artistry of the presentation, the service and the outstanding menu. The teaching staff and the students should be proud of what I regard as the best restaurant meal in Kelowna.

We appreciated meeting the students who were serving. They gave us some good insights about the food dishes that were being served. The dessert table was a little sparse.
Thanks for a great dining experience.

This was a wonderful restaurant experience. The food was wonderful, the staff outstanding and the experience was memorable.

The signage is not well done, and while I appreciate this is a school and not a business, that could be improved.

It is a shame that the college doesn’t do a better job of marketing as there was plenty of space for others to share in this great experience.

I had the Chicken Penne. I was disappointed because the chicken was the dark meat which I don't like. No where in the menu does it state that. Also, the noodles could have been cooked more. A little too chewy.

Super friendly professional service.
Redecorating the dining room and hanging Alex Fong watercolours makes this our restaurant of choice, not to mention, tasty, delicious, ample servings of creative dishes at great value pricing.
We heartily recommend this gem for haute cuisine dining. The best kept secret in the Okanagan!
thank you students and staff.

I just love going to Infusions.....I do tell most of my friends but some are so hesitant that they only go if I tag along....that is fine with me and I love Thursday bread and buns made by the students. Leslie is a wonderful luncheon hostess.

The service and food was amazing!!! The menu had something for everyone, the taste was delicious and sophisticated and the presentation was beautiful. The only real criticism we have is that the restaurant is almost impossible to find. There is no signage and this does such a disservice to the students and the whole establishment. We will definitely return now that we know how to find it!

When you buy a meal at a cooking school, you can't expect 5 star restaurant fare. The menu is always interesting at Infusions, the value very good and service from Suzanna always top notch. What disappoint sometimes is the lack of consistency on the plate. Everything in the right place, but not usually at the right temperature or consistency. Case in point=first course = soup - great texture and flavor, but a skin on the top from sitting too long. Next, main course steak - cooked perfectly, but vegetables were cold to luke warm. Timing and presentation...very important. One at our table of 5 thought her medium rare steak was overcooked. The response should have been "let me replace that for you" instead we got "oh, that's too bad"

Will continue to support the school - need to tighten up communications. Web said full menu available but when we arrived there were only 2 aps and 2 mains offered. Room for improvement - we will come back

Delicious Valentine's Day Dinner! Salmon Dinner was over the moon! Veggies were perfectly al dente. Apparently it was the first meal preparation for this group of students and really was incredible! However the service was slow with long waits between courses. Having ability to bring own wine is a wonderful feature...no cost corkage for VQA wine and $5 for others. The truffles at the end of the meal was a beautiful finale! Will definitely return and spread the word!

This is an excellent place to go for an inexpensive three course meal. It is prepared by students at the college and the dishes can be hit or miss. You are allowed to bring your own wine. I would have liked to have been waited on by learners or professors rather than employees. I would come back for an inexpensive night out.

We dined at Infusions at Okanagan College. Since this is a culinary school, I expect that the food is prepared by students and i would think they would encourage feedback. Hopefully, this feedback is provided to them.
I ordered prosciutto-wrapped cod as a main dish. The cod was very over-cooked.
For desert I had creme brûlée and this was quite undercooked.
The service was very good and overall I saw my meal as very good value.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback.

I had the beet salad, main course was link cod and dessert creme brulee.
Beet salad came with goat cheese, I am not really a fan of goat cheese but it was good in this salad it blended nicely with the beet juice. The brocuttio wrapped around the cod was nice and crisp, a wonderful blend of textures served with sauted veggies prepared to perfection. Overall, it was a wonderful meet.
