Eldorado Lakeside Dining room. Dinner reservation for 4 requested on the patio. Told when we arrived there are no patio reservations but we could sit on the boardwalk. That sounded great... until we were seated and looked at the bar menu, not the dining room (that we reserved) menu. Our waiter arrived and said they can provide the dining room... More

We had the great misfortune of dining at the Lakeside dining room at the Eldorado hotel over the May long weekend. We chose the restaurant as we have been to the bar many times and enjoyed both the beautiful view and service. Not this time. When we arrived we ask to sit on the dock right next to the lake....

We chose Hotel El Dorado for lunch, and we weren't disappointed. Staff were courteous, friendly & efficient. Menu was great, & food as good as we expected. We had the option of outdoor (deck), or internal dining, which was great.

Unbelievable dinner. Vincent was our waiter, and his professionalism is unsurpassed - great recommendations, perfect attention and service. And the food? Exquisite - from the beet salad to the rack of lamb - every bite was perfect. Can't wait to return!

We were staying at the hotel so decided to stop in for happy hour and then later for dinner. The happy hour was good, wine/ beer and snacks on special, which we enjoyed. Dinner was good also, the construction outside obscured the views somewhat which was a little disappointing. The food was good, we both enjoyed our meals, the service... More

Good food served by a nice young lady (Mauve). Another nice view of Lake Okanagan. I also enjoyed watching the workers building a new dock. They offer farm to table,vegetarian & gluten free options available.

The El is one of our 'go to' spots in Kelowna, we like sitting in the lounge, take in the atmosphere, lake-views & sports when applicable.

I had the shrimp cocktail. It was good. I liked the cocktail sauce with the dill cream sauce. I liked the mushroom burger. The tuna tartare was not good. The yellow sauce did nothing for flavour.

I can't speak anything but good things about the Lakeside Dining Room. Wines were paired well with the food that we ordered. The wait staff was a huge help and very knowledgeable about the foot that was offered. I would go again in a heartbeat!
