Modern Vineyard Cuisine inspired by our Indigenous roots. We proudly sit on the traditional land of the Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation. Our inspiration for the name of our new signature restaurant comes from a chaptik story passed down through the generations of our First Nations people of the Okanagan.
The Syilx People of the Okanagan Nation approach to food is based on the creation stories of their culture and we’ve taken their stories as the inspiration for the name of our restaurant: “The Bear, The Fish, The Root & The Berry,” based on the story of the Four Food Chiefs.
The Four Food Chiefs are central: Skimxist Black Bear (chief of animals, representing self-sacrifice, leadership, giving), Ntytikxw Chinook Salmon (water creatures, perseverance, hard work), Speetlum Bitterroot (plants below the round, relationships to the land) and Seeya Saskatoon Berry (plants above ground, growth, strength, community) are legendary and the elements of indigenous cuisine.

    Restaurant was amazing as usual in terms of service and food. We thought the charcuterie board could’ve benefitted from a spicy component and the bison carpaccio could’ve had a touch of salt but the egg fried rice dish was amazing! Aside from this (which we realize is out of the restaurants control) but there was a large family sitting behind us that was very disruptive and had their children running around like the restaurant was their own playground. Definitely ruined the ambience of one of our favorite restaurants. It was very hard to see the staff being treated like servants by this family.

    We have tried this restaurant three times and struggle with it every time. The design is quite poor for ambient seating and the majority of inside tables are truly in terrible locations. Food wise last nights main courses were excellent. The starter bread was absolutely awful! We were recommended to have the corn bread and paid $8.95 for one mini corn bread 3”x2” plus accompanied jam and nut spread. Never again but it’s highly unlikely we will be giving it another try.

    We travel to Osoyoos a few times per year from the west coast. We always have at least one breakfast and lunch at BFRB. My all-time favourite meal is the Bennie with pea meal bacon on home made bannock. It’s a unique local offering that is beyond delicious. Erin is most often our server and offers a wonderful service!! Don’t miss this experience!!

    Great service from the staff. Really attentive. Venue is unfortunately on the wrong side of the valley so VERY hot as the sun sets. I found the prices about 20% too high for value offered. Portions were huge but the Bison was not properly trimmed of the sinew/fat so was a tough meal without trimming after the meal was delivered. Oyster appetizer was awesome. Dessert was just ok - didn’t match the description but was still tasty. Wine list is lengthy but about 2.5x retail price on all wines - pretty expensive compared to the neighbors. Need to add some standard beef dishes to traditional meals and drop the wine price just 20% or so and this place will nail it.

    Would like to see a few more menu items, I understand the native inspired offering but if there were maybe two more traditional options for the elderly or young might be an idea. Our reso could not be increased to 5 from 4 but there were many empty tables and adequate staff (gathered at the bar) Server Ron was very good, wine list is great

    Weird experience at Spirit Ridge! 4pm and all that was available on the beautiful sunny patio was brunch?! So bizarre. No happy hour, no appetizers. Luckily one burger on the brunch menu. Service was amazing, but there was a guy swearing every second word sitting at the table next to us disrupting the atmo. Hyatt needs to step it up!! This location is being under-used for its potential.

    While the idea of local food with indigenous roots sounds great it wasn’t executed well. The food was not very flavourful. We had a reservation for our anniversary and there was no table reserved, in fact they offered the outside table requested to a walk in party directly in front of us.

    Took our family of 4 with 7&9 year olds. LOVE that the kids menu offer salmon and steak options (in addition to regular burger, chicken strip and grilled cheese options). Kids loved there salmon and flat iron steak and it was a great value. My husband and I shared neon caper trout with wild rice and cauliflower dish. Both were delicious and beautifully prepared. Our waiter, Xavier was great as well. Will definitely come back!

    Amazing combination of flavours in each dish. Unusual ingridents like spuce tip demi and the cheeky use of soylent green made for a fun night of gastric explorations for all. The staff were very attentive and the kitchen deserves its stellar reputation we have heard from our friends.

    Had a late breakfast/brunch off of the breakfast menu and it was very good in all aspects. We had a reservation however the restaurant was not busy and we were seated quickly outside. Water and coffee were offered and delivered right after being seated. Food came after a reasonable wait, was hot, tasty and well presented. Wait staff were appropriately attentive and we felt well served but not rushed. Very pleasant dining experience. We will plan to do it again.

    Very creative menu, we shared several apps, if I had to provide feedback: the three sisters salad had moments of wonderful but it was difficult to consistently get all the right flavors on the fork. The rabbit dish was more or a terrine then a pate, and while the cherry sorbet was delicious I personally felt it was unnecessary just a bit of the "dirt" and a single chocolate "branch" and let the apricot stand alone. We also had the almond ricotta which was amazing and the good egg dish which was the star of our meal. All in all a fine meal and we will recommend it to family and friends!
