The food definitely was tasty and inventive, impressively fresh. Unfortunately, timely delivery was not on the menu. We arrived early but ended up being seated late, despite having booked a month in advance. Our booking was 8:00pm but our appetizers didn’t arrive until 8:30 and our dinner an HOUR after that! Other tables that were seated after us were finished and gone while we were just beginning our main course at 9:35pm. We were told it was because one member of our group ordered the lamb... We were compted with extra wine and bread but that didn’t really satisfy the extreme lateness of the meal.

The Vines at Quails Gate is always good for lunch, but they must bring back the crab cakes as a starter!

We were looking forward to our reservation at Quails Gate Old Vines however our experience was overall very disappointing. The venue is beautiful but that is the only accolade we can provide. We had very poor, slow, and inattentive service. It took an hour and twenty minutes for our main courses to arrive. This seemed like an inordinate amount of time, which included 3 children’s pasta dishes and two fish entrees ( one which was made to try and accommodate the House special being sold out by 615pm). That enteee when served was sitting in liquid. For 36$ for the adult entrees we felt the value was not reflected in the food or overall experience.

Ambience is great but unfortunately the food wasn't great as I thought it would be. The waitress seemed annoyed when we asked questions about the menu and she didn't check back on us when we were wanting more items.

This was our third summer meal experience here and we keep coming back due to the view and the food. We consider ourselves somewhat foodies and this place does not disappoint. The creative food combos are flavourful, unique and locally sourced. And if course the wine is a highlight as well.

Quails’ Gate has a picturesque setting and unbeatable ambience. The staff were very helpful in ensuring we were given a table for our special occasion that had a perfect view which we appreciated. The three stars given for food were because my husband ordered a rib eye steak for his main course which was lacking in flavour and was lukewarm (although extremely pricey). Our other dishes were noteworthy, such as the burrata cheese and truffle fries appetizers. My main course of Arctic char was also excellent. However, to have the rib eye less than perfect is not what one would expect from a restaurant of this calibre. We would return to Quails’ Gate mostly for the beautiful atmosphere.

We have dined here a good number of times over the years and have always liked the food, the service and the view. Reliable but you must have reservations to be sure of a table.

We were very much looking forward to eating at this restaurant, but our experience was not what we expected. The food itself was well prepared, but we waited over an hour and a half to get our meal. We watched several tables close to us get their meals before we had ours, and they arrived after we did. When we commented to our server that it seemed that our meals took a long time, she told us that it was “crunch time” in the kitchen (at 9:45pm?), and she did not apologize. Disappointing...

Dinner was excellent we wanted to sit outside but due to the weather we had to be seated indoors. I had made a reservation but our table was not ready so they sat us at the bar while they were getting the table ready. They comped our drinks at the bar for the inconvenience which was nice. Kelly was our server and she was excellent!

Excellent meal for my birthday. Setting was lovely. Was able to move to seating on the patio without any issue. Our dessert took a while so the waitress gave us a sample of their fortified foch wine.

Outstanding appetizers, entrees, and desserts in a fabulous setting overlooking the grape vines and the lake. Service was superb. A bit pricey, but you are paying for the quality of food and presentation, as well as the setting.

What was a bit off-putting was the cackling of 4 women at a table nearby who were celebrating a birthday. It appeared that they didn't get out much. Also surprising was that a couple would bring a 2 year-old to a place that serves $25 entrees, and then not supervise him. These issues are not the fault of the restaurant, but put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable and memorable meal.

The experience was exquisite. Three of us ordered the three the most expensive main dishes, with 3 appetizers and 2 dessert, costed us 200 at the end. For the environment, the service and the food, it was totally worthy. Highly recommended. I would visit it again next time in Kelowna.

I have always enjoyed going to Quail's Gate but I was disappointed this time. The meat ( lamb) for two of the guests was not prepared as per our request. At $41 per entry, we were expecting better. The service was also not attentive. The ambience and setting of the restaurant is very nice. If we go back, we might just go wine and appetizers.

Very disappointed in our experience here. Our reservation was booked 2 weeks in advance and when we arrived they were not prepared for us and we had to wait 45 mins to be seated. The food did not arrive for another 2 hours, during which we were not given any apology for the delay. The risotto was undercooked and the Cornish hen was bloody at the bone. We spoke with the manager Claudia, who told us she would only apologize for the risotto and that the hen was supposed to be like that! Horrible customer service, we will not be coming back!
