This was our first time coming to the Bonfire restaurant and we can't wait to come back. The food was delicious. The halibut dinner was exceptional and the shortbread tart that our waitress; Selina, recommended was to die for. The food and service was fantastic and such a beautiful view on the patio, we will be back.

Kyle was our server and he was fantastic. He knew the menu well, advised us on good choices and made the night a great dining experience. The food was excellent and the ambiance was pleasant.

We truly enjoyed our lunch at the Bonfire Restaurant in West Kelowna. Our party of 6 arrived by boat and were met by two helpful young men at the marina. The Bonfire had our table reserved and waiting for us on the patio. It was a beautiful day and we appreciated the opportunity to sit outdoors overlooking Lake Okanagan! We... More

The Cove is a lovely resort with a beautiful view of Lake Okanagan, and the perfect setting for a great restaurant. We are staying there for 600$ a night and expect good in-resort food. Unfortunately it just does not deliver. Where to start? The incredibly mushy pasta that my children couldn't even eat. The "Whiting whole fish" that was no... More

Pizza Margherita is what it is: tomato, basil, cheese. Before mentioning that my pizza came burnt and with a nice hair in, I need to remind u guys that a Pizza with onions garlic and pesto is not a Margherita. It's like ordering a pistachio gelato and receive vanilla. Oysters were not fresh, too. The server apologized, she said they... More

The Bonfire is in a beautiful location but that is the end of anything positive to say about our dining experience here. To say the service was slow is an understatement and the food was simply inedible. They served half the table first, then the rest of the meals came out 10 minutes later. The food was cold. My risotto... More

It is one thing for service to be slow, and I get that, IF the place is busy but to drop off a bottle of wine 17 minutes after it was ordered and not even open it at the table.. Seems the only thing this place has going for it is their truffle frites and one gentleman that is an... More

We went to Bonfire with two other couples from out of town at 6:30 pm. two had a soup and a salad. Soup was not hot. Argula salad looked very aged with yellow leaves around. Our dinners came at 8 pm and couldn't wave down the waitress beforehand. Our long wait was not rewarded. Both our food came looking poorly.... More

We stopped by on a Saturday evening around 7pm, we did not have a reservation and were told it would be a 30 minute wait for a table. We chose to wait, as we did expect it to be busy and went on to wait at the bar. Service was great at the bar, the drinks were delicious and the... More

Very sorry to hear about your experience in our restaurant with our food and I am surprised at the lack of attention that obviously went into the preparation of your dishes. These 2 dishes specifically are 2 of our most popular and we normally have rave reviews on them. I can make no excuses, but would appreciate the opportunity to... More
