We showed up as a group of 10 and were treated like royalty. Exceptional food (some of the best I’ve ever had) and attention to detail. Every dish was a work of art, smelled like heaven, and tasted like magic. Amazing service from Genova and...the entire team was a delight to watch and engage with. One of my favourite summer memories. Thank you, Chef! We will be back again and again!More

Amazing workshop experience with only the freshest most interesting ingredients. A true culinary immersive experience. Chef Chris and his staff were incredible, kind, knowledgeable and fun to be with. And the dinner was the BEST!! Picked up some fabulous tips and tricks, and shared the...best meal with some of the best people I know.

Had an absolutely wonderful dining experience with Chris and his wonderful staff. The 5 courses were delicious, and the paired wines opened our eyes to our local wineries. The service was amazing, and every course started with an explanation of the ingredients and preparation. Not...just a great meal but a real dining experience.More

Amazing culinary creations impeccably served with farm to table, sustainable and locally raised ingredients. The enthusiasm for his craft displayed by Chef Chris and his team is contagious shows this is not an occupation but a deep passion. All the dishes were intricately created and...beyond delicious.

Undefined foodie, and wino here, industry fine dining slinger. There is nothing I love more than the perfect pairing of food and wine. The way they compliment diverse ingredients and preparation that make my soul dance. The minute we stepped inside, we were treated like...family, and we felt like family. We celebrated my sister in laws 50th birthday with Chris and his dynamic staff with family and friends. From the minute you walk into his space, you can feel the passion that goes into everything he has poured his heart and soul into. The description of his mastery dishes, is like a story that takes you on a beautiful journey. From stepping outside his door to harvest ingredients, to sourcing local game, meets and cheeses. Every dish, paired with the perfect wine from his suggestion. I was invested emotionally, which I get sounds weird, but the experience Chris has created at Chefs Table is one that is unique to him and his vision. If you are in Osoyoos/Oliver you have got to go, you will be a better person for it. Thank you Chris, you are an absolute gem, we felt your passion. That was not the last you have seen of us .More

My friends and I just celebrated our 40th Birthday Dinner at Backyard Farm and it’s a meal and experience we will never forget! The food was out of this world, full of flavours that we’d never tired before and it was amazing how it was...all locally sourced. The attention to detail and explanations provided behind each course made the experience unique, yet accessible. The night was filled with laughs and memories that will last a lifetime all tied to the most delicious meal we all have ever had! Chris and his team provided exceptional service and went above and beyond to make this evening special! They even put up with our very questionable 90’s playlist! I cannot recommend a dinning experience better than this!!More

Very boutique twenty covers. The chef Chris has a philosophy of freshness and seasonal with most ingredients being local or from his own garden and it works. We had different wine with each course Chris married the course to wine, sparkling, white, rose, red and...finally a port. enhancing the flavours of each course. We could not fault the cooking or presentation. There was no rush with servers explaining the varies ingredients. When we get back to Oliver next year Chef’s Table will be our first call for a meal.More

We had a great time "helping" to prepare dinner, sharing laughs and learning about the food we were about to eat. It was fun to go out on the farm to collect some of the fresh ingredients for our dinner. Chris, Kyle and Brie were...great hosts and made the evening a lot of fun. The food was excellent. We will definitely come again.More

I am fortunate enough to have just had my 4th Backyard Farms dinner with 17 of my closest friends and family. We are serial customers now and may make ourselves a little too at home. But that's because the staff are so welcoming and friendly...and the food is simply next level. Highly, highly, highly recommend!!!More

This was one of my favourite dining/travelling experiences ever! The food was delicious and fresh (made on site from their own and local ingredients), the service was impeccable, the staff were super friendly, and the environment was beautiful and comfortable. They were also very understanding...and accomodating to people with food allergies (they made an amazing gluten free bread and crackers!). The kitchen also overlooks the dining area which made it a nice, personal experience. I would 100% recommend this experience for all kinds of events - from couples, family and friend group events, parties, receptions, you name it!More

We were fortunate enough to secure a night at Backyard Farm Chef’s Table during our retreat in Osoyoos/Oliver. It was an incredible experience for all of us. The dishes were thoughtfully designed and made. The creativity was next level and of course it was incredibly...delicious. Chef Chris provided a detailed and enlightening description of each dish. True farm to table as many of the ingredients were gathered on the property. If you enjoy well crafted dishes in an intimate and inviting setting, Backyard Farm is a must.More

I was lucky to visit Backyard Farms when it first opened and then again this weekend. Wow! It has evolved from a 5 out of 5 to a 10 out of 5. Chris' stories were inspiring, the food was dynamite, the atmosphere casually elegant and...intimate and...the food, the food, the food!! So freshly prepared with love yet still gourmet and healthy. We had an event with 12 CEOs and we all loved it.More
