View was spectacular, service was the same. At the Groupon price, felt we certainly received our moneys worth. That being said, overpriced if purchasing from the regular menu & wines the same.

I was glad to have a groupon because otherwise the value for the food served was over priced. The scenery is amazing and I think perhaps they are relying on that for people to come.

Food was very good, service similar, views and decore first class, wine way too expensive for what it is.

The staff were all prepared for the groupon, even asking up front if we have the groupon. This made the whole process of understanding what we had purchased all the easier. The four course Chefs' special was astounding, everything an amazing medley of flavors, presented was flair and panache.

False advertising not 46 % off when you do not receive the equivalent to the menu, changed portions and seafood in paella. Not good business. Food was good what we did receive but deceiving

Choose outdoor seating, as there is a beautiful view of Okanagan Lake. The four-course meal was very filling and delicious!

Had paella as the main course and it was terrible. Heard later that some other guests earlier in the week had the same experience. Was very disappointing as it was meant to be a special birthday dinner. I didn't send the meal back as the rest of the courses were really good. Don't know if they had a recent change in chefs but it certainly didn't measure up to our last groupon dinner there. Don't think we'll go back.

From Our Editors

For the award-winning Chef Bruno Terroso, the ebb and flow of seasonal ingredients isn't an issue—it's an inspiration. Chef Terroso regularly changes his menu of tapas-style, shareable plates based on what's in season. Nearly every fruit and vegetable he serves comes from one of five local growers, each one either certified organic or adhering to organic practices. Indeed, produce tends to be celebrated throughout the course of any meal, from the fresh greens and raspberry vinaigrette of an opening salad to the beets and berry coulis brightening up the sockeye salmon. The emphasis on freshness makes sense given the menu’s pan-Mediterranean tendencies, but Terroso also creates daring cultural collisions such as sushi pizza with panko crust and lamb rack chops paired with potato gnocchi.

As guests indulge in Chef Terroso's menu, their eyes feast upon the view from Mount Munson through the three-year-old building’s wall of windows. Perched above Penticton on the side of Munson Mountain, The Vanilla Pod offers panoramic views of Okanagan Lake, Skaha Lake, and the city.
