Description: The South Okanagan has gained a well deserved reputation as a desirable destination for tourists seeking an agricultural and culinary experience. The Sonora Room at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery features prominently in this regard with its epicurean excellence, superb service, relaxed style and scenic splendour. The restaurant overlooks 146 acres of picturesque vineyard from the patio or inside the warm and inviting dining room. The philosophy of the talented culinary team is to embrace the opportunity to showcase many of the South Okanagan’s local producers. Dishes are created that utilize an array of local organic produce, seasonal fruits and artisan cheeses, and pair perfectly with Burrowing Owl's award winning wines. The exclusive wine list includes a selection of Burrowing Owl's current vintages, and library wines that are no longer publicly available for sale. Creative cuisine, impeccable service and a beautiful venue highlight the great agricultural diversity of the region.

The Sonora Room has stunning views across the southern Okanagan vineyards of Burrowing Owl Winery, but the food is just as stunning. The sablefish was particularly good and paired nicely with a spectacular 2009 Burrowing Owl Pinot Gris. Service is casual and friendly, yet expert. There's no need to be in a hurry.

My meal was great: rockfish over a bed of wild rice. The fish was excellent, the rice crunchy and the vegetables perfect and the Road 13 Pinot Gris was a great complement. My wife had the tenderloin and it was cold.

Excellent value for the quality of the food, service, atmosphere and presentation. Wine list is great; featuring other great wines of the region, not just burrowing owl. We chose the burrowing owl 2005 Meritage for our meal and it was fabulous. Will definitely come again.

A group of eight of us ate lunch here and we all enjoyed it. Between us we tried the beef sandwich, chicken linguini, rockfish and duck confit. We all enjoyed our meal, except that the beef sandwich was difficult to eat neatly. A glass of their pinot gris went very well with my rockfish. Service was attentive but not overpowering.
