Arrived with no booking, not particularly busy and felt we were punished by putting us in the corner next to the window which at -25 degrees outside was a cold position, under some rather erratic lights (problems with lighting so they were switched off). Decent portions arrived, beef stroganoff and hunter schnitzel, tasty meal, however not attentive enough - had to ask for drink top up and bill then had to remind him to collect the payment! Seemed the server had his mind elsewhere...

We are a group of 13 for Mixology which is part of the wine festival.
When a restaurant tries to serve a restaurant full at the same time, there are challenges with the quality of the food.
THIS restaurant failed and the meat was so overcooked it was horrible.
We did have THE best service from Nicki and she adressed our issues with the chef and management. However nothing was addressed to satisfy us as customers and although they saw the plates come back with no food that was only because the alcohol needed to be absorbed by the mediocre food that was served and the two hours between appetizer and main with alcohol meant we were hungry.
We would not recomment this event and this restaurant.

We were pleasantly surprised by the tasty flavours of the meals and the service was outstanding. Staff really went to great effort to make our experience a pleasant one. One of the nicest meals we have had here, and an enjoyable buzzy atmosphere. Especially of note that the service was excellent even when the restaurant was clearly very busy. Large servings and we appreciated the flexibility of shared meal options for our younger travellers.

The spot is awesome as far as the feel of the atmosphere. We decided to have 3 appetizers and the kids ordered off the kids menu. The kids spaghetti was good along with the Shnugetz and fries. Bruschetta was awesome but the don't give you enough bread to enjoy the portion of the mix so make sure you get them to add another bread and it shouldn't cost you anything. The Beet Salad was fantastic, but tasted like it was missing something therefore made it a bit bland. We also had the Prawns but really should be called shrimp. For 10 bucks to get 6 small shrimp with one piece of bread and some yam shoe strings that you need to chew forever is not worth it. The shrimp although covered in sauce, needed the tails to be peeled (WRONG) all that plus I had to add pepper to give it any taste. I mentioned it to the waitress and she kindly gave us a measly 25% discount (She offered this but didn't take it off on the bill so I had to mention this again to get anything back). I shouldn't have eaten it but I was hungry enough not to wait for her to come back.

Service was ok but expected a different response after a nice complaint. I would not go back to this place. It's rated too high on the list for Sun Peaks restaurants and should be lowered significantly especially for value.

Put some Pino Noir on the menu in the Glass too.
