We were a party of 4, all of us new to this restaurant. We chose it based on the reviews we read from diners. Now we are adding to that plethora of positive reviews. I had possibly the best escargot appetizer that I have ever experienced. My wife loved her Morroccan Soup - flavourful and chock full of ingredients along with a scrumptious pear salad. Our friend could not stop praising the tuna salad and her husband enjoyed a New York steak cooked to his liking and served with delicious trimmings. I had chosen soup and two appetizers, and the baked French Onion soup featured provolone cheese - making for a delicious change. My crab cakes were flavourful but not as outstanding as the rest of the servings. The service was gracious and all four of us vowed to place this establishment on our list of restaurants to which to return on a regular basis - and vowed to bring bigger appetites next time. I should also mention the home-baked warm bread that came to us before our first serving and was devoured even by those in our party who demonize bread as the cause of all weight gain. Visiting this restaurant was a delightful experience and while it wasn't inexpensive, we felt that we got excellent value for money.

Took my boyfriend for a celebration dinner, we had never dined in Vernon before so we only found Intermezzo via reviews. Cannot stress enough how great our experience was. The staff was extremely polite and welcoming, the service outstanding, our food was SO delicious! Although the outside may suggest it is a very pricey restaurant, we felt the food was priced fairly and every single dish was delicious. The staff brought us complimentary home-made bread and garlic butter, which you do not see in restaurants often anymore. We had an artichoke/crab dip, mussels in zefron sauce, and two pastas which were also incredible.
We are looking forward to return in the future.

There are few restaurants that can beat the Rack of Lamb delivered to your table like Restaurant La Cremaillere in Quebec City but it was really challenged this evening.

My twin and I enjoy an excellent Rack and when the waitress asked if we wanted a half, (4 bones) or full rack, (8 bones), we took the 8!

We also asked for the rack to be cooked to medium, pink through out but no white and a good crust.

Rack was delivered hot and perfectly cooked with a eclectic accompaniment of shredded potatoes and roasted peppers.

Matched with a BC bordeaux, (Burrowing Owl 2010), brought out the lamb flavours to a T!

Can't thank the cook enough, excellent meal.

Wait times from when we sat down, order taken, (we ordered everything at once including drinks), as time from sit down to even water being delivered was over 20 minutes.

So, slow service, (we ended up cancelling desert), as it was close to another 20 minutes from when we got the desert menu to when the waitress came to take our order.

So, Very, very good meal, one of the best in Canada for Rack of Lamb and an excellent wine selection, service though polite and gracious, was slow for us two men for what that is worth!

Would I go back? In a heart beat!

Had a relative in town for the night and trying to be a good host we went to Mezzo's. Surpassed all other visits. The recommended Burrowing Owl Merlot complimented the best full rack we have ever had. Medium done as presented with assorted grilled veggies. Couldn't have done better.

Thank you Intermezzo. One more item stroked off the Bucket List. The best Rack of Lamb, I've had!

Oh - got to mention - even for a busy evening, service was excellent, friendly, informed and eager to assist with subtle suggestions!

Great atmosphere, excellent service and the food was done to perfection!! We shared the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna to start - the texture and flavors were awesome! Our entrees were also very delicious - our new favorite restaurant! I would highly recommend Intermezzo!
