    We were the other part of the 2 family experience - a tradition we started after you opened. Overall it was good, but some notable negatives including pushy sales staff, lunch not something we will rave about like we did last year, long wait for bill, etc. We hope you work out the kinks because it's a lovely spot, but this might deter us in future and we probably will qualify any recommendations we might make.

    We arrived a few minutes early but were greeted promptly and shown our table. Server was polite and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding. I had the 3 course with wine pairing. Beef Tartare, pork tenderloin and the Basque Cheesecake for dessert. Good ambiance in the restaurant with amazing views. All in all an excellent experience. Would whole heartedly recommend.

    Having made a reservation for lunch after a tasting in the winery we were disappointed that the table that had been reserved for us in the restaurant was a Two Top in the centre of the room at the base of the stairs. As we were informed that “everybody had made a reservation” and there was no way to move us to another table we left and decided to celebrate elsewhere. I will probably not return as a suitable table will probably never be available for two women.

    Phantom Creek is a new winery Ina superb location above the Black Sage Road between Osoyoos & Oliver. The owner opened the facility with a flourish, fantastic architecture views, no expense spared. The restaurant is quite nicely laid out, & booking is very precise. We had a mid aft lunch, 2 course ($55) with wine pairing ($20) each. I had the beef tartar & the rum cake desert my wife had the duck entre & cheesecake desert. The food was better than ok, but the portions were small. The major complaint was the length of time it took - from placing our order to food delivery - for both courses. Waaay too long. The meal took about 1 hr 45 mins - for 1 entree & desert. By the time all was settled, with tip, the cost was about $180. Expensive & pretentious. They can & should do better. Simply withe the wine produced & sold. Overpriced for the quality & $25 for a tasting. They have a great patio, music on Friday aft. Lots of potential here but management needs to get itself in line with all of the very good competitors in the immediate area.

    A very good setting. Food was “fancy” but a bit bland in taste and ill-suited for the climate ie. too heavy. The service does not suit the atmosphere they are trying to create. Did wine pairings and the servers are not knowledgeable on the wines so why bother. If you want a very heavy, expensive and mediocre serviced lunch then this is your place!

    We enjoyed our lunch very much. However it was a challenge finding something we could eat on the menu as the server implied the chef was not willing to modify dishes for our gluten/dairy allergies. We had to go through 3 different orders before there was a dish we could have. While I understand preserving the presentation of a dish, or some dishes being pre-made, I did put down on the reservation we had allergies and if they thought accommodating them would have been a problem I would have preferred them mention that when they called to confirm the reservation. Even knowing before hand our menu selection would be limited and having that expectation would have helped with our overall experience as it’s very rare not to see allergies accommodated these days and it was a little shocking.

    Phantom Creek EstatesResponded on July 29, 2022Hi Danielle, Thank you for your feedback. Please accept my apologies that your server was not clear enough about the options available for you. As our menu is quite focused and changes regularly, it can be challenging to offer options for more specialized restrictions such as your own, but we certainly do our best to accommodate all requirements. We will be sure to take your feedback on board and are glad you enjoyed your experience otherwise.

    Phantom Creek has a commanding view of the valley and the panorama view is fascinating even to a long time resident; colors, shadows and features are always changing. Detour from Oliver's Main Street (Hwy 97) at Fairview onto McKinney Rd and a right turn onto Black Sage Road; the drive along Black Sage Road is well worth the detour. Phantom Creek is a very attractive venue and the ambience outside was pleasant but it is possible inside would be more satisfying. Lunch was a good experience, our server, Sukrut, was attentive and described each plate as it was presented. The meals were very good and but my Halibut was slightly overdone. There are wine pairing options such as a Main with Dessert or Main preceded by a Starter and a full three course meal. Beer options are limited to two organic beers from Nelson BC. If you prefer import beers I don't recommend the Hazy IPA beer; the alternative is also an IPA which may be better but my choice had a flavor which was disappointing. The glass of red wine my wife had was really good, smooth and rich. Price? Be prepared to pay upwards of 200$. All in all, a good experience.

    Phantom Creek met or exceeded our high expectations. My wife and I had the 2/3 course menu, paired. We had different starters (burrata, seared tuna) and mains (mushroom risotto, pork shoulder), and shared the pavlova for dessert. Each starter and main were paired with different wines (Viognier / Riesling, Chardonnay / Merlot) and Rose with the dessert. Professional service. Ambience was terrific. Stunning views (we are on the deck). Zero complaints. Will definitely repeat on our next visit.

    Our starters, The summer salad and beef were delicious. We both had the risotto for our main and it was absolutely outstanding. The desserts were nice. A very pleasant experience with a stunning sunny view. They are conditioning did not seem to be on so it was a little bit warm in there but nothing to complain about. Excellent service from our server.

    Mostly positive however we ordered childrens pasta for our 3 year old. It wasn’t on the menu but our server gave us the option. We received a small amount of pasta cooked in butter with some shredded cheese…for $25. To get the bill and see this price was extremely annoying. It very much took away from the overall experience. I recommend you reassess the pricing of the kids menu, especially when prices are not posted. I would happily pay for everything else we had, which was an experience, but to pay $25 for a tiny amount of pasta, butter and cheese was extremely annoying.
