The food, drink and service where top notch. We'll be back next time we are in Kamloops. Creative menu with a great location and fantastic view.

The location of the restaurant is great being right on the riverfront. I can imagine in the summer it is a busy restaurant. But we were there in November and next time through we will definitely stop by for dinner again. Food and service was excellent.

The Caesars are absolutely to die for...it's like a meal on its own so good. The care and level of thought that goes into these drinks permeates into there good as well. If you have one of these drinks you will be telling your friends about them. Thank you Storms... Enlightening.

We ordered the cease are salad and all 9 agreed it was one of the best in town. The pork belly was very tender and cooked to perfection. The beef ribs with mac and cheese... More

We ordered "family style", sharing appies and all. Everything was cooked to perfection especially the Mussels. The waiter was charming and attentive but not making us feel rushed. Will definitely go back!

After showing my sister around our beautiful city and taking in the Saturday Farmers market when it occurred to me that the perfect place to dine and show off our beautiful Thompson River was to go to Storms! This was lunch and the food was great, the service awesome. Over the years we have been there for dinner and always... More

We got there when it was already dark so we didnt sit at the patio (which is adjacent to the river). So unless you are there during the daylight, I wouldnt recommend this restaurant. It is so-so with regards to the food and ambiance (in fact very bright chandeliers so not really a romantic place). The staff were friendly and... More

We wanted a quiet dinner for two. It is lovely to look out on the river, even on a rainy day. We began with crab triangles for starters. Yummy with a delicious sauce. My hubby chose a steak, which he said was good. I chose the Chicken Pacifica which is chicken stuffed with seafood and cheese and covered with a... More

Great Location on the river. Our waiter was a hoot and very helpful with the menu selections and serving sizes. We arrived just 20 minuets before the evening rush so our orders were first in the kitchen. Everything tasted great. Staff was wonderful.
