We had a nice dinner here for our anniversary. It was a unique, intimate atmosphere. I felt the food was pretty good, but definitely over priced for the quality.

..."that food was disgusting!" is something no one would ever say about this place! They have an amazing chef/kitchen. The service is top notch. A fine drink selection. There really isn't much to say bad about this place. During the winter months, there can be a slight draft, as the restaurant is located in one of Kelowna's heritage houses. Otherwise,... More

Super nice atmosphere but terrible food and service. Crab cakes tasted like cat food which we sent back. For dinner I ordered a seafood salad with a Thai balsamic dressing. I asked the waitress if there was salmon on the salad and she said no. I received my salad with salmon (allergic) and my shrimp, prawns and scallops looked like... More

The food her is always good but sometimes it isn't up to the standards of a restaurant of similar prices. It has a good atmosphere. The service can be painfully slow.

The restaurant is a nice heritage building. Really enjoyed sitting in the old living room for our dinner. I ordered the special, arctic char with sautéed red onions on top,as well as a bit of walnuts and feta cheese. It was quite delicious. I chose the three cheese scalloped potatoes for my side, and they were also very tasty. My... More

From the moment we entered the Yellow House Restaurant, the experience was exceptional. We were cordially greeted and seated at a cozy window setting for two by a friendly young lady-greeter! My wife ordered a Calona Artist Series Chardonnay (BC) which was a nice touch to start off an evening of fine wine, dining, listening to music & chatting! This... More

While it is a bit pricey, and is basically a house re-purposed for a restaurant (which I think is cool) I highly recommend it - we brought our kids to eat on the patio and it was quite good (despite the fact that it doesn't really seem like a place for kids - i.e. I would never bring them to...

Average at best. The menu seems to lack any direction with a very eclectic mix from Indonesian, Indian, Thai, Canadian, European etc. I don't think any kitchen can excel at all of these simultaneously. The crab cake was decent but served on a bed of diced tomatoes that didn't add anything to the dish. I had the duck entree on... More
