Nice location but the entrée Veal Osso Bucco served were not up to par and for the price you pay its too expensive and portion too small and toughest meat for a Veal dish, I I had better in other places!

I really enjoyed having a glass of wine on the patio eating a delicious meal. This is a great place to stop for lunch on your okanagan wine tour.

Abience was nice, staff was friendly, food was so-so. My choice was roast duck breast and this was still raw in the middle. No offer to change this and no feedback with suggestion chef goes back to school.i

This review is based on several experiences,...July, August, 2015 and April 2016. Husband made a reservation for my birthday,....our 12 year old daughter was with us. When we arrived they seated us near the door to the kitchen,..the waiter was rude and condescending.

We celebrated a birthday here with a truly delicious meal. There was a variety of choices all with something a bit distinctive. We had chosen our wine when we did a tasting earlier in the afternoon so chose food to go with it. But there is a great "wine library" and the list is definitely worth browsing. I started with...

This restaurant is located within the Burrowing Owl winery & has an outstanding view of the Okanogan valley. We were there in summer & lucky enough to get a table on the surround patio. They do take reservations but we just dropped in. Usually busy most of the year but especially tourist season. Food is delightful in presentation & taste.... More

Well for starters the wine is nothing to write home about, but everyone's tastes are different. The best thing we had was a wine from a different Vinyard. The food was bland, the place was dirty and the service was unfriendly and slow. It was extremely loud cause of an air compressor. The view was beautiful... but that was it.... More

A very good restaurant with decent variety of menu choices. Delve into their library wines - some wine with age at affordable prices. My wife's arctic char was overdone and a bit dry, but everything else was just fine. The stay and dine special for the guest house is worth the money. Provides a good value.

The service was extremely good as was the food. One can sit overlooking a beautiful valley and enjoy a wide range of excellent prepared dishes. The menu has lots to offer and everything is very tasty. Excellent for sharing so that all gets to enjoy the multitude of flavours.

The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.
