“Favourite home town restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

I travel a lot for work and pleasure and i give a lot of reviews on Trip Advisor. However, i have been remiss in writing about my hometown eateries.

My all-time favourite is the Ecletic Med. The owner is often serving her guests so you get really amazing service. Very personable and quick. The food has always been excellent, it doesn't matter what you order. However, it should be noted that this is probably the most expensive restaurant in Vernon so if you are looking for an inexpensive meal, this isn't the place for you.

I definitely would recommend this restaurant if you are with your spouse or some good friends. However, i wouldn't bring my two teenage boys. That's what A&W is for!

“Disappointing family dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

Went with a large family group to celebrate a birthday. We were the only table in the restaurant and it took nearly 2 hours for us to get our dinner. By the time we got it we were so hungry, we did not care how mediocre it was. When we got our dessert (bread pudding made from fruit cake...ewwwwww) the whipping cream was rancid...the waitress tried to say that it was because the chef does not use sugar in the whipped cream...neither do I and mine has never tasted spoiled...
We will never go back, not with restaurants like Phoenix Steakhouse, Intermezzo and Little Tex who are consistently superb...you have to wonder how Eclectic Med is still open...

“Fantastic Food, Service and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

My husband and I recently moved to Vernon and dined at "The Eclectic Med" after hearing rave reviews from a number of different people we know. We went with high expectations and were not disappointed.
We have travelled extensively and agreed that this restaurant would hold it's own in any big city.
The decor was tasteful and inviting and the service was impeccable. It was as if we were
having dinner at a dear friend's house. Sharon, who greeted us at the door could not have been more professional. Marie, our server was relatively new but was very knowlegeable and enthusiastic, and gave us some great recommendations.
The menu was extensive and interesting, offering many great choices for any palate. We both started with the tomato soup, and it was fantastic. Our entrees were delicious and the portions were very generous. The desserts are made onsite and the chocolate cake was worth every calorie!
I must also say that the prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food (not sure where the people who complained about the prices eat!) and the wine list was also very impressive. We've found our new favorite place in Vernon and recommend that you give it a try!
