Nice but not special. Found staying at the resort for two weeks (although there are great cooking facilities in rooms) if one just wanted to hop down for a quick bite it was quite expensive with the HST and tip. They are in the process of opening a cabana out by the pool which will be less expensive.

First let me say this restaurant is in a beautiful setting (right on the lake in a lovely hotel) and expectations are fairly high for a good experience. Unfortunately this is far from what you get. I was taken for a birthday brunch that was very disappointing. Though some staff tried they are not at a capable level to provide a good experience. The food was not very good in quality. presentation or, most importantly, taste. My son barely ate his sandwich and the waitress took it to wrap up to take away (not that she need to bother because it wasn't good). Seconds after leaving our table we hear crashing plates only to have the waitress come back with the "doggie bag" and tell us that the plate crashed and there "might" be glass in the package so to be careful. I was speechless at this. Needless to say we did not take the "doggie bag" home with us. There was so much wrong about this restaurant that I can't even get into it from the lack of service to the toe nail clippings under the table to the patio heaters set on high in 25 degree weather (that's celsius) the experience was awful. There are many other really good restaurants in West Kelowna so please do not spend you money at the Bonfire or you will be disappointed. I really hope they are able to turn things around because the location is beautiful.

Great for a romantic evening, or a hot date. Food menu was better three years ago when they first opened, however its still pretty good today with lots of decent choices. I'm a bit of a wine snob, so their wine list could use more worldly additions. however being from the Okanagan Valley, I can see why they cater to so many local selections. Service is always good. Try it out, if you haven't before, you'll like it :) Grab a table with a view of the pool and the mountains behind - nice.
