After a couple of amazing wine lunches around Kelowna, Burrowing Owl's Sonora restaurant was disappointing. We started in the tasting room with the grumpiest hostess possible, she could barely bring herself to speak to us never mind smile. Sour grapes for sure. We then walked...More

A lovely patio overlooking the vineyards and the mountains. Bathe service was excellent. Our server, a young lady from Finland, couldn't have been better: five stars for her. We shared the prawns followed by the scallops and sable fish, finishing off with the chocolate dessert....More

Setting aside the things I like about this place - the setting, the wines and the OK, but slightly intrusive service - the food was downright strange. Great ingredients, lazily prepared, put together without regard for the dish, with the hope that some pretty presentation...More

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.
