“Infusions - a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

Infusions - a gem in the crown of the many fine dining experiences in Kelowna. But this one is different. Infusions is located in Okanagan College, 1000 K.L.O. Road.
We discovered Infusions during a Wine and Dine event. Five years later we are still devoted patrons of the most superior soup, starter, mains, desert and wine selection. All of this truly excellent dining experience is professionally prepared and served by the students of the Culinary Arts Program of Okanagan College. The perfect menu choice, small dining room with the right lighting, fine soft background music allowing normal conversation presents a wonderful evening for every person lucky enough to fnd and enjoy this place. We usually arrive at 6:30 and just stay on in the comfort of the food and the room. The price for all of this enjoyment is fixed for a choice of 2, 3 or 4 courses. The total for dinner, wine and tip is always a very pleasant surprise. I also want to mention the maitresse Zuzana who instructs and guides with gentle authority. Infusions is on the school year calendar ending this year on June 13. Mark your calendar by phoning 250 862-5455 for a great dining experience.

“First rate food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

I can probably count on the fingers of one hand the restaurants in Kelowna where I have had better food. This is top restaurant quality meals prepared under the supervision of people who, literally, teach this stuff. This restaurant is part of Okanagan College's well-regarded Culinary Arts programme. What that means in practice is that your servers are students. They don't have the polish of experienced full-time servers but they are overseen by, again, someone who knows her business very well indeed. The menu is not a lengthy one but we had no trouble finding items we liked. (The menu is prix fixe which you can get as 2, 3 or 4 courses, the prices laddered appropriately.) They were presented well and of very high quality and excellent taste. We started by sharing a crab potato cake. For the main my wife had Chicken Supreme and I had Beef Striploin. For dessert we shared a dark chocolate compote with wild berry compote. We shared a bottle of wine and had a couple of glasses. Total with tip was about a hundred dollars. Well worth it. We stayed for over two hours, during which nobody else who was dining left and not a single person did I observe using a cell phone or other electronic device. This is a place that knowledgable people come to in order to enjoy their dining and do so at a price that reflects not so much the high quality of the meal but the fact that as part of a course of instruction they don't need to run a profit. So if your #1 desire in choosing a restaurant is savvy servers in short dresses then go to Earls or Moxies. But if you want a very good meal for a very good price give this a try.
