The waitstaff were excellent in every respect; great knowledge of the menu, honest and genuine advice, perfectly timed service. The food was absolutely superb and very well presented. Considering the quality of the product, this is the best value dining experience my partner and I have had in quite some time.

on a recommendation during our wine tour, we went for dinner on a Saturday night. Must have reservations. A smaller venue with an excellent menu. My friend had the oysters and mussels (and the best fries ever), while I had an "open ravioli" and the duck. The portions are generous and very tasty! Every bite was thoroughly savoured. The dessert... More

We have been here in the past but not for a while. It was as good, or better, than before. The food was always visually beautiful and very well prepared. The unique flavours that they pair work well together and it was, overall, a great meal. We had the octopus tempura and heirloom carrot appies, the pork and beef mains,... More

Appetizers were the elk tartare and the daily special of lamb sausage. The elk was outstanding. The lamb sausage was very good. Mains were steelhead salmon, duck breast, pork and a daily special of beef. The duck was amazing and the pork was beautifully cooked. The beef special was a piece of steak and a piece of beef brisket. The... More

A Saturday evening dinner (6:00pm) on our mini-vacation with my wonderful wife. We found the food to be quite good but not "over-the-top" like we were expecting. The venue is very small and noisy and our server was very loud which is a pet peeve of mine. For $100 each we expected a more "fine dining" experience. I would not... More

We really used to enjoy coming here, so we thought since it was my birthday, I wanted to go to a fine dining restaurant and picked Waterfront Wines once again. Really wish I picked somewhere else! Totally disappointed in the presentation of the food, and the food itself. Nothing was "over the top"! The service was good though. To top... More

We used to be regulars at this restaurant and recently had a bad experience. The food was mediocre, the service was very poor and we were essentially dismissed. This place is very pretentious and I believe considers itself to be for the dining elite. They also hide behind their "liquor primary" licences a means of discriminating against anyone with children,... More

My sister and brother in law invited us out to this wonderful place. The restaurant has great ambience and the server was very friendly and took her time with us. The food is local and fresh and top quality. This is a great place for a fine dining experience.

Repeated visits to this restaurant are in order! I had the pork loin and it was amazing. Next time I'm in Kelowna I'm going to visit twice; Once for pork loin and another to try something else. The service was also prompt and friendly.

We were welcomed with a smile at the door and promptly seated under a drift wood chandelier that light the room with warm lighting. The room was filled with good vibes and gentle music. Our table of four all went for the Wine & Dine menu with the suggested wine pairings (Amazing). All three courses were a complete balance of... More
