Fresh, tasty, innovative food and great service. We also had the 2012 Chardonnay and the 2014 Pinot Gris (not available for tasting in the winery) - brilliant!!

So the restaurant came highly recommended by several people. I made the reservations for 3 of us about a week in advance and I am glad we did as the place was hopping about 30 minutes after we got there. We were not disappointed by anything at the restaurant. The service, food, wine, suggestions by our server were all spot... More

This meal was the end to a perfect day. We had spent the day tasting wine and had reserved ahead. We were blessed with a table on the deck. The service - outstanding, food - amazing, wine - spectacular. The only thing we wished had been different - tasting Burrowing Owl wine before dinner. We didn't realize the wine tasting... More

We have been here a number of times and continue to love this restaurant. The flavor of the salads and meats are always so excellent. We had a young waiter who made some sugestions with wine pairings that were excellent. We make sure to visit every time we are in Osoyoos. Keep up the great work and we will keep... More

We visited the Sonora Room as part of our visit to Okanagan Falls and Oliver, BC. We went with my wife, sone, his wife and our granddaughter. The location and view from the outside patio is gorgeous. The service was prompt and very friendly. This is an expensive place to eat which became apparent when we looked at the menu.... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a weeknight in late June around 6:30pm. The restaurant is located at Burrowing Owl winery, a short drive up the hill off the main road. We made reservations, however the restaurant was not overly busy and we were seated promptly on the outdoor patio overlooking the vineyards, pool and guest accommodations. Our... More

This was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had! If you eat here, you will want to eat your meal on the deck- the ambience is unparalleled! We took the kids (ages 8 and 10) and had a memorable late/aft evening dinner. Although we had dinner reservations for 5 PM, we decided to show up for... More

Husband & I are staying at Nk'mip resort so Burrowing Owl estate winery is only 20-25 minutes away. Monday night reservations at 6:30 guaranteed us a patio table. Server did a great job explaining the menu to us & made a good wine recommendation as well for pairing with my husbands meals. I actually chose the Sonora Cosmo as my... More

This restaurant always does a great job! We stopped in for lunch and had excellent service with very good food! Look for their library wine list! I had '07 - '10 Pinot Noirs they were ageing very well!

No complaints here, everything was very good, just not quite outstanding. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. The wine flights were a great way to taste wines from different years.

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.
