Description: Named after the rare and reclusive North American duck that shares its name (and flew onto the restaurant patio during name selection) the Hooded Merganser is a culinary and architectural masterpiece that straddles Okanagan Lake to offer panoramic views of the lake and mountains.Inside, the décor is luxurious, the atmosphere is casual and the menu diverse yet surprisingly reasonable: contemporary local cuisine and phenomenal views of the Okanagan Valley.

This is a nice spot for either going for appy's and a beer or for a really nice elegant dinner.
The atmosphere of being on the lake is very lovely.

Last week we had another enjoyable time at the Hooded Merganser. For this visit, we shared single orders of edamame beans and mushroom spring rolls for our appies and then each of us had burgers for the main entree.

I ordered my burger with roasted garlic and gorgonzola cheese, and my wife had her's with cheddar and mushrooms. Both burgers came with fantastic fries.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and we were a bit too stuffed for dessert!

Our server, Lori, was simply excellent! She was attentive throughout the meal and kept the water and other beverages flowing.

We always have an enjoyable time at this restaurant which, for us, makes the 30 or so minute drive from West Kelowna worthwhile.

And the views of Lake Okanagan from our table were amazing! On this visit, we found it a bit too cool to dine on their outdoor patio.

We look forward to our next visit to this beautiful restaurant!

By far the best view for dining in town. When calling for the reservation, they were able to seat us within minutes of our arrival, even though the restaurant was packed. There were a couple of large groups who had orders in before us so the server apologized for the delay. However, given the view we hardly noticed that there was a delay. Our server was prompt, paid very good attention to our table, and was very engaging. The food was very good with sufficient portions.

We would recommend that if you only have one night in Penticton, that you eat here.

Food was fine. Limited and not exciting menu. I'd go for the appy's only next time as there was some variety there
