I really cannot understand why one gets charged for salad dressing! I did not want the house vinaigrette as I do not like that as a dressing and asked for ranch instead and got charged 50 cents, (money grab!) The server could not even bother to tell me so I thought lowly of that aspect and when I questioned it, it could not be taken off the bill. I find that quite petty of a place that wants to get a good reputation and with so much competition in Kelowna. I was already charged an extra $1 to replace salad with fries and that I was okay with even though fries is more in price to make than just some greens and no carrots/tomatoes etc, again petty to do that to customers. Atmosphere is nice but I cannot understand the pettiness and the money hunger ways of Ora. May or may not go back, undecided.

Four of us had meals that were of cheap coffee-shop quality. The soup tasted as if it came from a can. Service was good, however.

It was me & my boyfriends first time to Ora, we were looking I find a nice relaxing meal together. First thing we noticed was the atmosphere, it was very well put together and quite relaxing. We had a young red headed server, seemed sweet but she would cut me & my boyfriend off at times as she was taking our order. Also while busy with us she was called by another staff member and completely dropped what she was about to say and just walked away in mid conversation, although we had just finished ordering what food we wanted so at least she didn't walk off before that. Our food was a bit of a wait but nothing to complain about, I ordered the Bone-In pork chop, it was cooked perfectly and all the flavours on the plate went together very nicely. My boyfriend ordered the mango chicken penne, looked very appealing but I was kept busy with my own dish! All in all was a nice place, good food, service could use a little work but not many conplaints!

I will definitely be returning to ORA, this restaurant has amazing food using top shelf ingredients. We had the Butter Chicken and Mango Chicken Penne and both were amazing! Service was prompt, friendly and very professional. They had a great cocktail list with experienced bar tenders. If you have a chance try this place out, I know I will be returning.

The patio, is awesome! The wine list is incredible, wonderful local Okanagan selections! Including one of our favourites which we enjoyed, a bottle of Dirty Laundry Rose (Hush) from Summerland (it dissappeared in no time). For dinner we started witht he Tuna Tataki appetizer. Incredible taste! Terrific portion for two people. The evening began witht he taste buds being awoken immediately!
For main course, we had Chicken/Mango Penne and the Ora Salad (chicken, goat cheese).
Then dessert! Oh My, Oh My! The Bread Pudding - amazing! The Pecan Pie, out of this world unique!
