    This wasn’t our first time in BNA, but was the first time experiencing odd booking management. We had the booking for 5:45PM, and just after finishing our main courses in around 2 hours, we are informed that we had to either move to bar, or leave, as there was a 8PM booking for our table. We were planning to order coffee / desserts; however, we are kindly forced to do that somewhere else. Until that moment, nobody ever mentioned that there was a booking for our table for 8PM. If we had been informed about this in advance, we may either order them earlier or make another decision. In overall, even we love BNA for its uniqueness in Kelowna, this experience wasn’t pleasant at all. I suggest to checking the availability of your table, especially if you have guests and/or planning to spend longer than 2 hours in a weekend evening.

    Our server Kristen was great! Food was good, but disappointed by the vegan pizza. I wish there were more toppings and sauce. Found it to be more of a cheesy flatbread than anything

    Food was absolutely delicious (as always) and the service was amazing! We were seated right next to the bowling alleys and it was quite noisy, would’ve preferred to be on the main floor or further away, but otherwise a great experience.

    All was fine until the food arrived, hamburger and fries. The fries (online says "crinkle-cut) were shoestring and were like they were fried yesterday, cold and consistency of fries past there time. Then the hamburger. Last time it was a grand burger. This one was like a basic Mcdonalds burger on a brioche bun with a larger patty. And for the caramelized onion mentioned online line, it there was any it wasn't detectable. BNA used to have great food but this example has changed my opinion to "not recommended".

    We’ve been quite a few times and it’s usually a favourite, but this time was pretty lack lustre. The food didn’t seem to be as good of quality, especially for the price. We had to send the chicken wings back for being under cooked (despite them suggesting it was the cooking method). The beers were good, but otherwise a pretty “meh” experience.

    Great as always. I don’t know his name but the fellow who helped us reserve our “standard table” at the foot of the stairs for December 9 is awesome. He always remembers us from previous pre-Kelowna Rocket game dinners and is deserving of a big Christmas bonus!

    Really fun place to be on a Saturday night. It was great that they were able to take reservations because it took the stress off of making dinner plans as out of towners. A few locals recommended this place - great for those who are over the "wine" part of Kelowna and looking to experience some local beers. Service was great - everyone very friendly. Not too quick (didn't feel rushed to get out) but not slow. Food was delicious!

    Reception staff was very good and friendly. We had a large group and they were quick to set up a large table for us. Food was very good. Venue was very good. The only complaint would be in regards to service. It was Very slow and our waitress displayed a “forced” friendliness. But this is not a surprise as I’m sure they are short staffed like everyone else and the staff that ARE there are run off their feet.

    Our server Tanner was amazing. She was attentive, quick and efficient. She had many tables including a large bachelorette she was managing and never skipped a beat!! Best server we have had ANYWHERE in the last few years. This girl deserves a raise! My only complaint is the obnoxiousness and screaming of being next to that bachelorette party. We are never disappointed with the food either! The only time we are sad is when the menu changes, we come for the chop chop salad and the no longer in the menu cauliflower wrap things! BRING THEM BACK PLEASE!

    BNA BrewingResponded on September 12, 2022Jamie, thank you so much for your very kind feedback. I will absolutely make sure Tanner hears this. We agree, she is truly the best, we are so happy she was able to give you such a great experience. We also agree the Cauliflower tacos were delicious, I will share this with our Chef, the tacos will hopefully make their return one day soon. Thank you again, and we cannot wait to welcome you back!

    I requested accessible low seating in my reservation, noting I am bringing my elderly grandmother. They took us to high seating and I asked for lower seating. They asked us to climb the stairs but my grandmother couldn’t. Then the elevator was offered but I didn’t realize that we had to walk a distance outside. My grandmother can barely walk across the house. I felt horrible for my grandmother as she struggled to keep up. I tried to make her rare evening out as accessible as I could and instead she was left feeling embarrassed and deflated. Please note accessibility on your site and please read your special requirements before taking people in. I was also introduced to the gender neutral bathrooms as “coed”. I would like to suggest diversity, inclusion and equity training for your team.

    BNA BrewingResponded on September 12, 2022Colleen, thank-you for this very important feedback, we will absolutely coach our team on these points, and are eager to learn from this. While we do have a lot of high tops and stairs, we have made sure there are accessible table options on our main level, however this was 100% a miss for us on your visit and I am very sorry for that. We would love to invite you and your grandma back, we know we can do better and we would love to show you! I will send you a private message with more details.

    If you like salad because you like vegetables then this is not your place, but if you eat salad but don’t like it to taste like vegetables then this is your place. The Caesar salad I had was too salty and too saucy and not enough natural veggie crunch. What we did like about the place was the ambience, but not the food.

    BNA BrewingResponded on September 12, 2022Thank-you for joining us, and we are so happy to hear you loved the ambiance! We will absolutely share the feedback about the salad with our Chef. We are not sure if you had the chance to try the Beet and Quinoa salad, but we think you might enjoy it, it's loaded with local arugula and beets, dehydrated root vegetables and crispy kale chips. We really appreciate the feedback, and we hope you give us another try!
