About the restaurant
If the valley prospers, we prosper. Everything you see on the terrace menu is homemade, grown in the estate's garden or produced locally with our agricultural partners. Chef Patrick's philosophy is that if it grows together, it goes together, which is why we offer wines from the same region to accompany your meal.

Overall a good experience, plenty of courses and I left feeling overly full. I would say it’s not quite as polished as Masayoshi in terms of terms of service and presentation. I also didn’t appreciate having to ask multiple times for the price of drinks. I was left with the impression that i was being rude by wondering how much things cost. Given it’s mostly bottle service, I think it’s only fair to ask how much it might cost.

About the restaurant
At Home Block Restaurant, we embrace the bounty of the Okanagan while our name pays homage to the Home Block Vineyard which surrounds us. Our building is crafted from fieldstone and 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood and our cuisine draws on those elemental roots. We integrate natural cooking methods like our wood-fired grill fueled by timber from local orchards and seasoned barrel staves. The result is honest, confident, and approachable food that unites flawlessly with CedarCreek wine.

Kelowna
About the restaurant
The name BLOCK ONE represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again. That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. You will be amazed by the outdoor seating area of the restaurant. Seating is covered by an engineering wonder in a one-of-a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the world's architectural community. The restaurant moves to an equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the winter months.

All groups of 6 and larger are subject to an auto-gratuity of 20%. At this moment we do not have a dog friendly table available.

The space will transport you to the most righteous shindig there ever was, but the eclectic menu and world-class cocktails are in a decade-defying universe of their own. Nostalgic inspiration mingles with forward-thinking dining.

We look forward to welcoming you with rockin’ tunes and good times.
