My wife ordered a seafood grill. 3 lbs of rice, 2 shrimps, 0 scallops, tiny pieces of salmon & sole, No taste at all. Chicken wings were better choice. I had a gluten-free risotto with chanterelle mushroom. Again 3 pounds of filler using the risotto which the whole meal was flavourless(had to use a lot of salt & pepper along... More

Thank you for your feedback and we apologize that you needed to wait so long for your food. Over this long weekend, we served over 1,087 guests that enjoyed our views from our lake front patio. The seafood grill calls for 3 types of seafood totalling 13 oz of protein. That equates to a 5 oz piece of salmon, 5... More

Food at dinner was terrible -- greasy, tasteless, expensive. Waitress was stressed, busy, messed up our order and our bill. And it took forever to order, get the food etc. We didn't dare try breakfast.

It would have been constructive to understand what about your dinner was terrible by listing the items that you ordered. Long weekends are stressful for staff as we strive to provide excellent service to all our guests. We apologize for your lack lustre meal. More

Our family went out for a nice dinner by the lake, and this was the only one in West Kelowna we found. Bonfire was ranked highly and was near our hotel so we went for it. It was a beautiful venue and there was live music, so we were excited for the meal. We got our menu and were immediately... More

Our friends booked our reservation, and were told we had take an 8 pm reservation. It was a Thursday night, and the inside where we wanted to sit was very empty. We couldn't figure out why we got such a late timel. We waited for service, and several people stopped by but it took nearly 20 minutes to get menus.... More

Was ashamed to bring out of town guests here. Assumed the food standard would be up to par considering being attached to the resort. Would never come back again, food was unimpressive and did not taste fresh. Intended on spending the evening eating and drinking after doing a wine tour locally and left right away no longer wanting to give... More

I should have known when my google app didn't want to take me there. There was no parking in the lot, assuming the hotel guests filled it. We parked in the street and walked a short distance. We got an ok table, outside. There was a guy playing guitar and he was great ( ended up being the highlight). The... More

Loved almost everything about the restaurant, especially the location. Service was excellent as were the finishing touches - fine quality table setting, enchanting view and picture perfect food presentation. Only two negatives but they should not outweigh the many good features. A live duo was playing when we arrived and unfortunately our table was directly in front. Table of five,... More
