Our second trip to Naramata and our second time to Hillside. They delivered again - amazing halibut and the best gnocchi either of have ever eaten! And our server knew her wines well and made our experience great.More

This review is specifically about the Bistro ONLY, since we did not go to the winery nor tasted any of its wines. The reason why I am taking the time to write this review is because when I checked for places to have dinner in...Naramata, after our drive there, this place appeared in the second place of the supposedly "best places to dine" in the area, which, according to me, it is a huge misrepresentation. I would not want anybody to experience the disappointment that we experienced when very near by are truly fabulous places to eat. Despite having very good quality ingredients, the Bistro offers such a sad, tasteless and bland combination of them that everything, from the starters to the desserts that we ordered (a supposed "lava cake" that did not have any lava coming out of it and a crème brûlée that was not even a simple flan!) was a disappointment. In addition to an excessive, pretentious and unnecessary use of ingredients the prices asked for have no co-relation with the standard of quality that such prices often entail. Lastly, the typical and in this case mechanical question of the waitress regarding how was the food was the cherry on top, since she automatically assumed that everything was "awesome", when in reality was far, very far, from being that.More

We were on a private wine tour and this was our reservation for lunch, we were running a little bit behind, the hostess and waitress was very quick to take our orders and our food arrived promptly and it was outstanding. I enjoyed a beautiful...salad and my husband had some kind of hash😁 The day was very windy when we arrived so we were presented with some blankets to put over our legs, which was a nice touch. We did not have a big view but the view that we did see was very outstanding the property was beautiful, clean. This Bistro was following Covid guidelines - Thank You 🙏 If we ever return to Penticton we would definitely like to enjoy this winery and bistro againMore

My girl and I enjoy travelling and trying new restaurants and experiences, and returning to our favourites. After a long overdue vacation and to see family and friends it was time for the Okanagan! Why?!-warm sun, beautiful landscapes and a little gem called Hillside! I...reserved a nice patio table overlooking the property and water for our friend’s anniversary. It was a special occasion and where else to celebrate then the Bistro headed by newly arrived and renowned Chef Evan Robertson! Our server Sarah was fantastic- prompt, friendly and gave her favourite suggestions so we could enjoy a unwinding and relaxing dining experience. We enjoyed: focaccia bread with hummus/balsamic, walnut mushroom pate, pulled pork tacos, crab Mac and cheese, gnocchi, seared tune loin, Fraser Valley Duck Confit along with the best wine pairings! Between the exceptional service, exquisite dinner and perfect wine it was absolutely sensational!! I very much enjoy Chefs work at Hardware Grill and Pig and Duke- I’m very excited for what’s next at Hillside Bistro! This definitely was a highlight of our family trip and we cannot wait to come back! One of the best restaurants in the Okanagan and a “Must-Visit”! 🍷🎉❤️🍇🌄🇨🇦More

Delicious dinner. We had the tuna loin gnocchis , pierogies and tomato soup. All were delicious. Gnocchis May have been our favourite but the tuna was also amazing. We explored the bell tower after dinner I got a sneak peek at their brand new upper...patio.More

We finally had a chance to check out the bistro. The new chef prepares outstanding dishes. You won't be disappointed. We had tuna, tacos, the mac and cheese and caprese salad. All were amazing. It left me wishing we had room for more, so I...guess we have to come back to try some others another time.More

As I recall, dogs are not allowed on the patio - this is true in most of BC.
