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.

                      We had a wonderful dinner here. Staff was attentive, our server Ron was terrific and the meal was very enjoyable. We shared the bannock plate which we enjoyed. My salmon was perfect and the sides were very tasty. We would happily eat here again.

                      I want to start with that I do think the team tried to make it better, and given the climate it isn’t easy after everything restaurants have gone though, but sadly this wasn’t the best experience, and we all left a bit disappointed after being so excited to visit based on my research. The server was very green, and I think a bit overwhelmed or undertrained for the section they had. We felt neglected, had to seek out more water from the bar directly, the mains took quite some time to reach us (we arrived 6:45, didn’t get mains until a bit past 8 with very minimal contact from our server), we had to flag down another staff member and later a manager to figure out what was going on. The wait for mains would have been fine had there been more communication and attentiveness, but it did feel like our table was forgotten or that the server was so nervous by how long the food was taking she didn’t want to come over. Regardless the food was delicious and beautifully plated. The kitchen took one of our members allergy very seriously, and the management did try to make it right. My partner did receive a birthday dessert which was very much appreciated, and he loved how inventive and fun the dessert was. I would want to come back, as I am someone who worked over 14 years in the industry, and I know sometimes things just cascade and go wrong. The reviews across the hoses have been stellar, and I think this may just be a one off experience likely as a result of how Covid has impacted so many restaurants.

                      Our first time here and it was great. Celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary. Jared, our waiter was professional and polite. The complimentary mimosas were a surprise and unexpected. Loved the native flute music in the background....plus the spectacular view of the N'K Mip vineyards and Lake Osoyoos to the west. All in all. a fantastic experience; can't wait to go back and check something else out on the menu.

                      My experience at this restaurant was outstanding, since the reception we had a great greeting from the staff they even recommended my partner and I to stay at the terrace where we could appreciate the sunset and its beautiful view to the lake. Then our waiter Ron gave us his nice suggestions to our special night, everything was spectacular I have no other word to describe the amazing delight of each ingredient. Our cherry on the cake was that they gifted us the dessert because of our ocassion.Thanks to the entire team that was at all times attentives of us and made this event super special for me. I will totally recommend this place to my friends and relatives.

                      Very nice restaurant. Our waitress Inga from Poland was delightful, efficient. and personable. Unfortunately our table was in the corner with no view but we did go on the deck after our delicious appetizer of clams and dinner of beef braised ribs. All the staff were very accommodating and friendly.

                      It was our server’s first evening on the floor and they were clearly nervous, shaking hands and sweating brow which is understandable. They had a limited understanding of the menu nuances. In our heightened awareness of hygiene and Covid it was rather disconcerting to see the server cough on their hand while at our table and not cleanse afterwards. The food presentation was lovely, two of us had halibut which was overdone. The fish was dense and meaty rather than sliding off as we took our bites. Which was disappointing for the $45 price tag. The view was lovely with fantastic views of the lake and valley. Not sure I would go back.

                      Excellent food and good service. The choices are minimal but we ordered three different meals and all were great. The place was quite noisy inside.

                      We visited the property back in February and had a fabulous breakfast. We came back to experience the meal again but this time we didn't receive the the lovey plate of danishes and I had very little smoked salmon on my eggs benedict. It was good but it wasn't fabulous like I had in February.

                      The food was amazing! So tasty and well presented on the plate. We were also pleasantly surprised at how big the portions were (not normally typical in a high end restaurant).

                      We were kind of disappointed. My husband had the halibut, which was outstanding. My rabbit, not so much. Presented in a ceramic lidded bowl, I was expecting food on a plate. A stew type thing, but the meat was not tender, and should have been bite size not in big chunks The broth was not particularly flavoful and too thin in my opinion. Overall quite underwhelming.. The desserts on the other hand were spectacular. We decided we’ll come back just for those. Service was fine ,although our waiter had such a thick accent it was not till the end of the evening that I became used to it enough that I didn’t have to struggle. We’ll try again for lunch

                      It had been a while since we had been here but the food still did not disappoint. Flavour, presentation and timing all perfect. First time dining since the renovation as well and it is a relaxing and understated decor which works perfect and frames the views from the large patio doors. As is with most places staffing can be an issue and there were obvious trainees but were expertly guided by seasoned staff. Overall a superb night out.
