    Fun, modern, great music, excellent service and an unbelievably amazing brunch!  Palmer Steakhouse far exceeded our expectations!  The chicken and waffles with bacon country gravy did not disappoint and held up to restaurants in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA!  Clearly the culinary team has done their homework!  Fluffy buttermilk pancake stack with homemade berry compote is an absolute! Simply wonderful!  We have already booked a table for dinner with friends.  Thank you for upping the bar in Penticton!  See you again soon!

    Caesar salad was excellent Burger texture excellent, not a lot of flavour. Salmon excellent. Pasta ok. Decor is really nice. Need to have where the wine is from under the name, not a lot of choice by the glass. Lots of Okanagan by the bottle. Staff need to know where the wine is from as well. Service was good. Bar looks very nice as well. Will definitely come back.

    First time at Palmer, and we loved it! Martini was delicious (albeit in a unique smaller glass), Caesar salad was amazing, as were the crab cakes, and steak was perfectly done. We did have to wait longer than usual for our cocktail as it seemed everyone had ordered a shaken drink that night. It would have been nice for our server to touch our table to let us know what was going on as we felt a little ignored, but I think they were just short staffed. Once things got going, it was great! Strong wine list, good ambiance. We will definitely be back.

    We decided to celebrate my husband's 74th birthday by visiting Palmer Steakhouse for the first time. Staff were very accommodating and welcoming although we did have to wait a little while to be served. We ordered a starter which we planned to share between the four of us but were disappointed when the starter arrived with the main course some time later. The restaurant recompensed us for the error by not charging us for the starter. Two of our party ordered the smash burgers and were very pleased with them. My husband and I ordered different flank steaks which, while very tasty, were a little chewy. I think I would order one of the more expensive steaks next time. The potatoes served with the steaks were excellent.

    We had excellent service and the food was good. I ordered a steak and it was cooked well but under seasoned and the kitchen didn’t remove the tough grizzle off the end. For the price I wouldn’t order it again. My husband had the miso glazed salmon and it was excellent. I will order that if we go again. I love a good steak and left disappointed.
    Palmer SteakhouseResponded on February 26, 2024
    Thanks for this Joey, we work to get better everyday, and wouldn't be able to course correct without insights like this. I'm glad you enjoyed the salmon but I'd still love the opportunity to prove to you, you can count on us for a good steak! Dan Skokan Director of operations

    I like to eat Lasagna, and so thats what I ordered, It was the worst I have ever had. First the portion was very small, second the bottom half was so tough, that I could not cut it easy with my steak knife. Second I asked the waitress to ask that my garlic toast could come without the garlic, did not happen, I finally helped my wife finish her steak frites, which was ok. The waitress Amy was very nice and pleasant. We will not return.
    Palmer SteakhouseResponded on February 26, 2024
    Thanks for taking the time to give us insight on your visit, Gaspipe. Upon further investigation there was preparation error with the lasagna, I apologize about that! We are developing systems to ensure quality control isn't missed like it was during your visit. I'd love to invite you back for a lasagna on us to prove to you that you can expect better from us, both in service and food quality.

    Service was outstanding, others have had concerns about the volume of the music however we asked if it could be tuned down and we discovered that the volume could be adjusted to each table you just have to ask. Steaks were rare just as we had requested and very flavourful. Dessert was very unique and amazing. Totally recommend this restaurant. Others could take lessons from them

    It's definitely two thumbs up for Palmer Steakhouse - definitely a place you can celebrate a momentous occasion or just have a nice dinner out. Fine steakhouse dining without all the pretentiousness and crazy prices. Staff, ambience and food were all perfect. Great location with free parking for guests.

    Excellent restaurant. Decent selection on the menus. The meals were perfect. Prices were high but actual worth every penny. Service was ideal. Amy is a professional and she was much appreciated. Noise level was higher than I liked. Selection of music could be adjusted to the atmosphere they're trying for.

    Special birthday celebration that was perfect - the ambiance, the food, music, and service. We had a variety of plates ranging from salad to fish to steak and all the delicious add on toppings - everyone raved about their choice. So glad we chose this venue to celebrate, we will all be back. Thank you.

    was our first visit. and things went very well. service is great the look and feel of it is great. the food and choices are amazing, my wife had a steak and I the salmon both were delicious. It is a tad pricy, but that said eating out anywhere is these days. A great new spot for Penticton and its going to have a great rooftop patio for the summer. Will definitely be back and tell others about it.

    We had a fabulous first time experience! The food was delicious!! My husband had the three course set menu and upgraded his steak to the New York. Each course was generous in size. I had the mushroom pasta dish and added a side of prawns sooo good and very filling. Our server Sami was delightful and very attentive. We will definitely be going back soon. This new steakhouse is a wonderful addition to Penticton! 😋

    They were waiting on the new doors to the hotel so a little noisy at first as they were prepping for them. We expected something as it hasn’t been open long. Decor and ambiance are excellent. Really comfortable dining chairs (at least the cloth ones and the wooden one looked to be comfortable as well). Also banquets along some of the walls. Music was clear and well distributed around the seating area at a comfortable sound level. Beer selection was a little lacking for my tastes but it is a hotel restaurant. Wine selection seemed to be simple as well. We shared crab cakes to start as well as the prime rib sandwich (lunch). Both were hot and very tasty. Service was very good but was a little long getting to pay. Minor pick. We will try again likely for dinner for the steaks in a month or so.

    okay the rye and coke i ordered tasted like bourbon and Coke , I ordered a New York steak and when they brought it to me, they said there was no more New York steak and put down a ribeye steak in front of me without even asking if I wanted that steak and just said the price will be the same as the New York they should’ve come back to me and told me there was no more New York first and ask what steak I would like instead , i had mushroom caps to and they where awsome

    Wonderful food, service and ambience! Kaley was a wonderful server and suggested a new wine from West Kelowna that paired beautifully with our steak dinner. Caesar salad was big enough to split and was lovely, not overdressed with great flavour. Steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back soon!

    Best steak I have found since moving back to Penticton. Ordered steak Oscar….yummy. Our server was excellent, very attentive. The atmosphere is casual but the food is more upscale. Essential choices are limited but ordered the cheesecake mouse it was delish. Will definitely be back to experience other choices from their menu.
