A great restaurant with lovely modern decoration. Food was excellent, loved the pesto chicken pizza. The prices were reasonable. I was surprised when our bill came because we had had martinis and wine too. The service was very good and prompt.

This restaurant impressed us so much on Saturday night that we returned on Sunday night. We were surprised by the reasonable prices on the menu so our expectations were not high, but we were pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was lovely and romantic with many types of tables and seating to choose from after 7pm. The music was mellow and perfect for a romantic meal. The only suggestion would be to turn the restaurant music off when the live band plays outside so there aren't two conflicting tunes for the inside tables by the patio. The meals were perfectly spiced- not too much salt, had a variety of accompanying veggies, and the staff were friendly and eager to please. The special halibut tarragon pasta was creamy and delicious with firm morsels of halibut, the veal dish had a delicious white wine sauce, and the fettucine with chicken and mushrooms and the eggplant parm were an excellent value and definitely exceeded our expectations for a hotel restaurant. The wines recommended both nights were delicious but not inexpensive ($40.00 bottle). If the quality of food and service on the weekend of September 14th is indicative of the quality throughout the year, you will not be disappointed. We will definitely come back on our next trip to the Okanagan.

This was our second time trying out the place because the location is perfect but the food & the service, not so much. We were in a group of 10 and most people ordered the Mac & Cheese and let me tell you.... It was.... The.... Worst.... Thing I've EVER tasted!!! Bland, cold, tasted like FLOUR!!! My low fat home made recipe was a million times better!!! And fat free!!! I was looking for a fatty yummy home made one and it was distrusting!!!! Took forever to show up, then it was cold and gross they did reimburse us tho. When we told the girl how horrible is it she says "yea I know I never tell people to order it". Like.... !!!!!!! What the heck!!!!!! Don't leave it on the menu then lol

Usually, eating within a hotel is not something we do often, but what a great surprise. Bufflehead is located inside the Lakeshore Resort in Penticton. They have a wonderful inside restaurant with floor to ceiling doors/windows that open up to a perfect patio deck over looking Okananagon Lake.
The food was upscale with modest pricing. For appy's we had the oysters in the half shell with an amazing sauce, Escargot...the ceasar sald totally authentic. Main courses included, Macaroni cheese ..soo creamy and smooth, Veal in a white wine mushroom sauce, lobster and prawn pasta in alfredo sauce, gnocci in brown butter, to die for...and the portions were huge...took two take out containers home. Well worth the visit....We will definetly go back!
