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. We always order a bottle (or two & cork the second to take home) of Burrowing Owl Merlot, and although we were ordering the Caesar Salad & flat bread to share, we just wanted... More

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 had to put a lot of soy sauce on it. I will not order this here again. I like the tuna dish at... More

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!

The Brunch buffet we enjoyed in December was great. There was an extensive selection which had typical carbs such as muffins, breads, and pastries, etc. There were 3 to 4 (or more) "not entirely typical" salads, 6 or more hot food selections, seafood platters, charcuterie selections, cheese plates, as well as an omelet station and a very large variety of...

Went to the Sunday brunch. Having gone to several brunches and buffets before so I know something about them. The quality of the food was really good. Very small selection unfortunately. The place charges $35 for adults and 15 for Kids. The price is outrageous, it really is. The food may be yummy but very very small selection, no complimentary... More
