O'Rourke's Peak Cellars Garden Bistro
Delicious. Amazing service. We will be back.
The friendly staff and delicious food made for a great dinner out .
The winner and
We have been huge fans of the pizza/wine happy hour. Service and food have deteriorated this past year. Beet salad has far been my fav dish but yesterday the beets were rubbery overcooked wrinkled beets. A few pieces of lettuce were very gritty like they had not been washed adequately. The salad as a whole was the worst I have had, tasteless. For the pizza, yes they are larger than before but pretty tasteless. Crust was really really hard to bite through. Service, despite being almost empty, was SLOW. We filled our own wine from the table bottle every time while server chatted with other workers. Pretty much same as the last few times we were there. The service the past three times has been 1 out of 5. Chase was for my hubby and I, our go to late lunch date for years. We have given chance after chance but we have been disappointed for almost 2 years. Not complainers but happy this email review was sent to me because for our over $110 bill yesterday, so unsatisfied with food, service and experience. I understand there was an event as well yesterday but there was plenty if staff just hanging about. No need for us to serve our own wine three times. Also your wait staff LOVES to chat. Their conversations seem to always take precedence over customers.
Thank you Jennifer for the information. I am disappointed to hear we failed you more than once. The culinary team has been working hard on quality consistency. I too love the beet salad. Your comments have been taken seriously. I will be using your comments in upcoming service training as an example of impact as well. I do hope you will try us again as we will be addressing your comments directly. Sincerely, Heather Courtney GM
Love this place
Excellent food and wine. Our server was great and the location was perfect. We had the lobster pizza and honestly it was the best crust we have ever tasted!!
Thanks! We make our own pizza dough daily!
The food was outstanding as always and our waitress was attentive and friendly and very knowledgeable.
Glad you enjoyed your visit!
Small venue - good menu & lots of light in the eating area. Service was good.
It was a special day but found the menu selection too limited.
A very nice Valentine’s Day meal! Great food at a very reasonable price. Service as usual was excellent. One of our favourite places in the Okanagan. Thank you O’Rourke’s!
Thanks! So glad you enjoyed your Valentines dinner! See you again soon. Heather
We have visited the bistro several times in the past year, but always during the summer. Thought we would try it in the winter. Everything was perfect - good food, good wine & good service. THanks so much.
Thanks! So pleased to hear you enjoyed your winter visit. We look forward to seeing you in the summer. Heather GM
Very good business lunch. Our server was friendly and attentive. All four of us thought that our entrees we great. Would definitely recommend.
Glad you enjoyed your lunch!
Taking advantage of Dining Around menu, had a lovely lunch with friends. The dining area feels a shoehorned into the tasting room - I definitely prefer when the outdoor area is accessible during the warmer months. Regardless, the food is consistently excellent and the service attentive. Wonderful presentation.
Thanks for joining us for Dine Around. We are counting the days until spring as well so we can utilize our heated patio. Heather
We went there with our friends and took advantage of the pizza and bottle of wine deal, great value and the food was fantastic.
Thanks, glad you enjoyed your pizza!
Fantastic service as always. The weather that day was terrible and we never felt rushed to or pressured to leave early so they could close early. Amazing staff.
So glad you enjoyed your visit! The snowy days are nice and cozy here.
Always a positive experience
A lovely, relaxing late lunch the day before Christmas Eve.
Service was friendly and very accommodating. The kitchen even made us some delicious flatbread, outside of Happy Hour, and despite the fact that the pizza oven was not operating!
We’ll be back!
Thanks Barbara! Glad you enjoyed your visit despite the pizza oven issues! Heather
Fantastic, I'm so happy that there are always new menu items or specials to try and that the food keeps evolving while keeping staples on the menu.
Thanks, I am glad you enjoy our menu. We have fun coming up with new dishes! Heather
Excellent food, service and ambience. Wine getting better al the time as well. Great vineyard bistro!
Thanks! We agree, as our vines mature the wines get better every year! Heather
Wonderful food and service!!
We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and have already done so. We love the location and the food never disappoints.
Thanks Dorie, Glad you are a fan. Heather
Lovely setting and delicious food. Wine and pizza can’t be beat!
Thanks HollyR, Glad you enjoyed your visit. Happy New Year! Heather
Took my parents here for my mom's birthday. She had a great time. Our server, Megan, was exceptional, and she did a great job describing the specials, the food, and the wine.
Thanks ChrisB! Glad your mom enjoyed her birthday dinner with us. See you next time. Heather
Friday night is Date Night at Peak Cellars!! Great menu, great wine and a vibrant room. Will definitely be going back.
Thanks EricS! Glad you enjoyed Date Night. Heather
Sub par service, sub par food. Good deal for happy hour but not worth another visit.
I am very disappointed to hear you had such a poor visit. My apologies that we did not deliver on our usual high standards for friendly service and great food. Your comments are taken seriously and this will be discussed with our teams immediately. Heather Courtney General Manager
Great service and terrific food! Enjoyed the pizza and trout and the most amazing charcuterie board. And of course paired it all with delicious wine!
Thanks BrendaR! Glad you enjoyed your visit.
Nice restaurant, good food and service , bit too noisy !
Thanks Jantje. Glad you enjoyed.
Great food, enjoyed the Date Night food and wine pairing.
Thanks Vaycay! Glad you enjoyed Date Night!
Our local winery ... convenient, tasteful, fashionable, but a little expensive in terms of value.
Thanks Edybinedy, Glad you enjoyed your visit. We do try to work within several price points on our menu and appreciate hearing we may have a bit more work to do.
Nice atmosphere and great food (remarkable gluten free pasta).
We could not enjoy the view because it was at night, we will definitely go back with the day light. Recommended.
Thanks FrancescaP, Glad you enjoyed. See you in the afternoon! Heather
Tremendous dinner. Most of our group had the pizza and loved it. I ordered the Arugula pasta and found it way too oily.
Thanks for the feedback. Glad everyone enjoyed the pizzas and I am sorry the pasta was too oily. That dish is under review as we are about to do a menu change. Your comments are taken seriously and we appreciate the information. Heather
I'm not Canadian.
I ordered "Margherita pizza ".
But it was not " Margherita pizza" we had.
It was burnt.
It was vinegar taste.
Italian parsley was on it, not Basil.
Chef must not know what is the Margherita pizza.
They may think that we don’t know what Margherita pizza is.
Thank you Kerry19. I have taken your comments to the chef. We are currently reviewing our menu items and we appreciate the feedback. Sorry you did not enjoy the pizza. Heather
We love going he The Peak Bistro. It is close and we choose to support local. Our guests were from out of town and they enjoyed the experience. Food is always good. Unfortunately this time, my particular Seafood Pasta dish, although tasty, was extremely oily. Everyone else enjoyed their choices.
Sorry you did not enjoy the pasta. Your comments are important to us and we will be reviewing the dish and its consistency. Heather
Fabulous Lobster Pizza for two and a bottle Pinot Gris! Crazy to get all this for 40.00. Live happy hour!
thanks! Glad you enjoyed.
Love coming here. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Food is excellent. The view in the spring and summer is to die for. Sit inside in fall and winter and it’s not to shabby either!! Join the wine club and get lots of great benefits. What else...... oh yeah, LOVE coming here 😊
Thanks HelenM! Glad you enjoy visiting us! Hope to see you at our pick up party! Heather
Sadly, it was not our best experience at Peak Cellars. Very disappointed in the halibut dish - visually bland, fish overcooked.
One pizza was served which was clearly overdone but the server took it away and replaced it with a much better prepared pizza.
Only one selection for a red wine was disappointing for our visiting guests.
Kudos for the mussels all the same.
Overall, very disappointed.
I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit. Your comments are taken seriously and we will be reviewing with our culinary team. Heather
We’ve been here a few times and it is consistently such a positive experience. The food is delicious and the customer service is fantastic.
Thanks LisaW! We are glad you enjoy visiting us. See you again, Heather
The food was great and the service was excellent
Thanks, We are glad you enjoyed. Heather
Loved our casual evening in Lake Country. Indoor seating full so we ate outdoors under heaters with warm blanket on our legs. Very comfortable. Lovely Pinot noir rose and food delicious. Striploin and pasta dish.
Thanks, Rhonda, We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us. Heather
Good food, good ambience, good service. If in the Vernon area, definitely a place worth visiting.
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed. Heather
