Farm-to-table
The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.

    We went for lunch. Amazing service by Sophia. She was the most friendliest, knowledgeable, personable, and perfect server ever. One of our most memorable lunches we have ever experienced. Everything was so perfect, the food, the ambiance, the view, the service from all employees, and the wine. A little fun after lunch was to see the 360 degree observation tower, amazing views. We will be back next year for sure.

    Beautiful view. Delicious food. Meticulous service. We stayed with the charcuterie board which was, as usual tasty. The honey mustard on the board was especially delicious and the honey drizzled over the blue cheese created for us (not blue cheese lovers) a nice version that we actually enjoyed. For dinner we ordered the green salad with the appetizer scallops and the salmon. The salmon plate was outstanding. Our server told us that he has been there for 12 years. That speaks volumes about the owners. All around, our best visit to the Sonora Room.

    I’m afraid I did not particularly enjoy the flavours in the pea salad, although lovely and fresh tasting I thought the sorbet was too sweet. Also the same with the scallops, beautifully cooked but the sauces were too sweet. Basically not enough savoury flavour for my taste.

    10 stars all in ! The outstanding server is a truly amazing human. She certainly has a natural talent for this career. The food was awesome. We had quiche, one with soup and one with salad. Every morsel was divine. The Rose of course was our wine choice and a perfect one it was. The atmosphere...there is so many lovely things to say. Meals on the deck are memorable indeed. Thank you to all involved that made our lunch on Saturday so special. Return visits are guaranteed xoxo
