We took my wife's aunt and uncle there for their anniversary as a treat which was truly enjoyed. Service was fantastic ( thanks Tara for the special touches ), food excellent as usual. Ambiance was good - summer is our usual preferred time but was still a treat. If you want a special treat try the cod - it was sensational. All in all a very nice everning.

Food was mostly good (Angus Babette was excellent, scallops not so much). Service was excellent as usual. Kerner is great for anyone who enjoys a sweeter white wine.

My husband and I came to The Lookout on a day of wine tasting in Lake County for my birthday. The food and service were excellent! We shared the WTF "Burger" and BLT and left very satisfied. We really appreciated our servers care and attention when we let her know thete was an onion intolerance. And we were treated to a glass of sparkling wine to celebrate my birthday! We can't wait to come back to try the dinner menu!

I usually really enjoy the food at Gray Monk but the last couple of visits have been a disappointment. The chef forgot that I have Celiac disease and put a garnish on my lunch that was not gluten free. I sent it back. He/she replated it but then it was cold. And the in house made barbeque sauce that I had on it previously has been replaced with a commercial product that I could not have. That disappeared off my plate too. I was left with a pretty dull looking presentation. And it was not hot off the grill.

Service was excellent.
Tables were well spaced and we felt very comfortable in covid times.
Wine flights were excellent and reasonably priced for quality wine.
Lunch menu was limited and priced on the high end but of course the view is incredible even from inside. Heaters outside would be a nice touch. Steak menu item was more rare than we expected. Overall food is over priced for value but typical of a winery restaurant. Recommend it but expect to pay more than normal.
Inspite of this we had a very enjoyable lunch.

We went in with a time limit and we were very clear about that when we sat down. We had over an hour and a half scheduled for lunch. We were only offered drinks twice in that whole time. We had one bottle of wine between four of us, when we could have had two, maybe three, and my other friend was only offered one glass of wine. And we had to pour it ourselves. We were disappointed with that. The server was nice, but not attentive enough at all. I had recommended it to my friends, and left feeling disappointed. And we were late for our next appointment...after saying when we needed to leave. I would be cautious to recommend going there, to be honest...

Hi Andrea, Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I apologize that we were unable to get you out in a timely manner and that the service didn't meet your expectations. I will follow up with the staff who worked on the day you dined. We do our best to get our guests in and out a timely manner but sometimes it's difficult for us to rush our style of wine and food service. Sincerely, Michaela Senkiw Restaurant Manager

However, it did feel that the salad was a little over priced. Even if it included a slice of bread it would have seemed like more

This is the 3rd time we habe bought friends to your lovely restraunt never to be dissapointed. The food is excellent, although my fellow diners were a bit dissapointed with their desserts this time. The service has always been exceptional and the view, what can we say! Inside decor is a bit austere, maybe add some local art. Overall, we will be back again.

We celebrated our anniversary here. I had wanted to come here for a long time to enjoy the spectacular view. The view was great, but the menu was seriously overpriced for what we received. We were underwhelmed by the taste of the food and the portions considering the premium we paid. We were seated inside, as the weather was cool. There was no decor. Atmosphere was seriously lacking, and I didn't hear any music at all! For such a beautiful view, work needs to be done on creating a nice atmosphere/ambience. The service was good., but we will not return here.

The experience was outstanding even though due to the smoke there was not much of a view, the food and service meant that didn’t matter much. Simplistic interiors and well spaced out tables (thank you COVID-19) ensured privacy for our special celebration.

Every dish were superb and surely enjoyed exploring every element of the plate with individual and combination of flavours.

It’s a good thing I don’t live nearby, I will be tempted to be back too often.

When back in Kelowna would be back to enjoy the full experience again, just this time with the views included.

Thank you for a special experience!

We have been to The Lookout restaurant at least 20 times and of course the highlight is the patio and scenery ...and for us the top notch steelhead trout. However, with the patio closed the ambience inside was less than lovely. No atmosphere whatsoever. The renovations along with table and chairs are great but the lack of an interior designer to create some sort of atmosphere is greatly lacking. It felt like we were sitting in a cafeteria . The hostess was dressed in something resembling pajamas for pants and a baseball cap. As long as the interior ambience stays as is we will wait until next year when the patio is opened again and will not visit again through the winter months.
