Well the lunch menu is on so good. The tomato bisque soup delicious. The duck club was perfect and wash it down with a nice white and you have a great day. Take the stairs up to the tower to really enjoy the view.

We had an 8 course tasting menu with an amuse bouche and a palate cleanser in the middle, paired with delicious wine. Our server, Ingila was fabulous and Chef Steven did a great job on the food. Practically art.

I visited the restaurant for dinner on two occasions during my trip and both were spectacular. Everything was incredibly fresh and we'll prepared. The wine pairings were also spot on. I bought a case of wine afterwards.

Delicious food, fine dining. Exceptional service and very accommodating to dietary restrictions. Extensive menu. When we arrived we were served home made buns, then an amouse bouche. Presentation of the food was beautiful.

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.
