We stopped by the Winery for a tasting but it was very busy so we were advised we could go into the Bistro where there was room & have a glass or two. Once seated our server, Elizabeth was awesome & when I explained we had come for a tasting (my granddaughter’s first) she quickly brought her a red & a white to try. So it was almost as good as the tasting! We ordered a cheese plate which came with a small loaf of bread & was delicious. Along with that we had a bottle is wine. All very good, but the service Elizabeth provided and the unbelievable view was second to none. A very pleasant experience after 3 months of staying home.

My wife and I visited to enjoy the Dine Around Kelowna promotion. We were greeted in a friendly fashion and seated promptly. Our server, Daniel, was efficient and knowledgeable. I ordered pork bellies, braised beef ribs and dark chocolate pate. My wife had beef carpaccio, seafood ciappino and apple and pear galette. Everything we delicious, though my wife could not finish her main. She enjoyed ihe rest for lunch the next day. We both enjoyed the wine pairings with the meal, just enough of each serving to get a real taste. Service was excellent and not rushed. I particularly appreciated our server's checking for the presence of peanuts in my dessert. We spent two hours of relaxed time enjoying our meal. Michael claimed to have remembered me from a visit 3 or 4 years back with some Australian friends. If true, I commend his memory! The dine around promo is a great value and I am glad we could enjoy it here.

Very beautiful location, and excellent service, but the food was a bust! We both had the paëlla, which was watery and just awful. Tons of cut up veggies, little bits of tasteless prawns... super dry mussels, seemingly added as decoration... the dish was crowned by a sail-like piece of prosciutto jerky? So disappointing.

We went for a celebratory birthday lunch. Reservations for 12:30; finally got our lunch around 1:45 with an explanation that it took longer to make a gluten free pizza even though it was shown on the menu. Pizza arrived cold, large glass of wine with lunch $18.00 final bill $62.09. With the tip $70.00. When I made the resrvation I said it was to celebrate a 19th birthday and there was no comp of drinks or desert even though we waited well over an hour. Second time we have eaten there and it will be the last.

Went there for lunch with my wife. We were very happy to try it after the reviews. The waitresss was wondeful. The experience on the other hand was horrible. My wife ordered the trout. When the dish came she immediately noticed a hair in the dish. They were very open to changing the dish. Then as she was taking a sip of her drink, she found a fluff in an ice at the bottom of her drink. To make matters worse the manager who was walking around never came over to acknowlege anything that occured. The bill was for the full price and never offered anything based on an experience that one person did not eat. My wife had to leave because she was so disgusted hungry and very unhappy We go to many restaurants and if there is a mistake the minimum should be acknowledgement and make you want to come back. When i paid my bill, i asked for the manager who mentioned she was waiting to come over to talk to us. What could you be waiting for? You should be the one coming over with the bill and appologizing Disgusting experience Ian

Eat Organic 🌿 Save the planet 🌍 This name captures the essence of the menu offered at the Summerhill Pyramid Winery bistro. We were enthusiastic to try it because they have vegan options. We started our lunch with the plant based cheese board and the vegan calamari made of tempura oyster mushrooms. It was delicious! Usually, I’m more into White wine but I opted for a glass of Organic Cabernet Franc with firms tannins and it was a nice pairing with the food.

We had such an incredible evening with Doug as our server. He is incredible. The food is to fantastic and the views are surreal. The food is a great mix for those with food restrictions such as vegans or people who love really great food. The vegan in our group was in heaven as were we all. Such great creations with the vegan calamari, Spanish paella with tofu and the desserts!!! Couldn't get enough and can't wait to return! Thank you for being so accomodating, hospitable and knowledgeable Doug!

I ate there twice during a three day trip to Kelowna and definitely would have eaten there again had it worked out. The food was amazing particularly the vegan calamari and dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate, apricot jam dessert from heaven. Thank you for having an organic menu with choices for people with food sensitivities.

We arrived 10 minutes before our 3 pm reservation. We were told no one could be seated until their reserved time. I would understand if it were crowded or there were no tables available. However, we counted at least 6 open tables. And to boot the hostess was very matter of fact and when we pointed out all the open tables, she just repeated no seating until the reserved time. We left and will not return.

Hi Tracy. I can understand your frustration with this, we do ask the guest to show up as close to their reservation time as possible it has to do with COVID cleaning policies and the amount of guest we allow in per hour. I am sorry the young lady at the Host stand did not explain that better I will follow up with her Respectfully Jeremy

This is a beautiful restaurant located just by the winery tasting room. The seating inside looked very nice with large windows offering a view of the lake and Kelowna in the background. We sat on the patio and enjoyed watching the deer wander through the rows of grapes. Our food was delicious - we had the vegan calamari, the clams, and we shared the lamb shawarma. We couldn’t get through it all so it was perfect for a future snack. Service was great and we think the pricing was very reasonable. The menu is not huge however we had no trouble finding numerous dishes we wanted to order. We loved everything about this winery and everything that it is about.

I have no problem with healthy, organic food. I keep healthy in part because of my good eating decisions. I cook in ways to enhance taste. The Bistro should adopt the same philosophy. My prawns and mussels were bland, as was my wife's squash mac and cheese. Very lazy effort on a very limited lunch menu. There's no excuse to charge exorbitant prices for low-quality entrees. Lake Tai could teach the kitchen many lessons. My suggestion is to steer clear of this place until management makes extensive changes. Because what they're doing now isn't working.

Summerhill bistro is a gorgeous place for a lunch overlooking the vineyard and often, a wedding. We were happy to see so many vegetarian options on the menu. The roasted cauliflower salad with locally grown greens was delish. Oh, and the wine was nice too.

We stopped by for lunch at this restaurant as it was attached to a winery that produces some very nice wines. I think if we had done more wine sampling before we ate, the food would have been appreciated. My wife and the other gentleman at the table tried the curry bowl, while I dared the vegan Mac and cheese. We were all disappointed. Both dishes lacked any attempt at layering the flavours. While this might be hard to do with a Mac and cheese, the curry dish failed in too many ways. The real trouble with my Mac and cheese was that while the cook had achieved the wonderful feeling one gets in one’s mouth from a good cheese sauce, it lacked any zest at all. Totally blah! Nice view. Very good service. Very good cheesecake! Including a nice tip, the cost for my wife’s and my meals was well over a hundred dollars. You be the judge.

Lunch at the bistro yesterday. Vegan calamari and seared saganaki tofu at our table. Calamari was good, but small portion, seared tofu was meh. What is usually a pleasant meal event was turned into a surreal experience by what appeared to be a manager on a mission to mop the entire restaurant several times while we were there. Then the expected happened when a server slid on the wet floor, crashing down with a tray of filled water glasses. She was okay, but obviously in pain. And yes, the manager (we think) decided to mop the floor again, and then again. Entertaining maybe (not really) but didn't make up for the unexpected average food. We've always come to expect more from the Bistro, maybe it's having problems adapting to reopening after lockdown. But Summerhill wines are still our favourites, that's all that's in our wine cabinet!

Honestly, this place has amazing views but lacks experienced staff, as well as quality wine and menu options. Tourists will keep visiting regardless because they don’t know better, but I doubt locals will give it a shot more than once. The new menu dropped today, and misses the mark on so many levels. Sorry, but $30 for a green salad? Also, what’s advertised on their website isn’t honoured in house, for example, their happy hour times. Finally, there aren’t a lot of shareable options if you’re not into faux-meat dishes. Hopefully some of these issues are resolved quickly, but there are better, less touristy wineries to visit in kelowna.
