Old Vines Restaurant is a meeting place of fresh local ingredients. Our selection of dishes enhance the light, fresh and fruitful, rich style of Quails' Gate wines. Our menu is constantly evolving as a reflection of our focus to serve the best and freshest the valley's local artisans and west coast markets can provide. We are dedicated to providing you with a beautiful setting and the ultimate food and wine experience in the Okanagan Valley. The Province (January 2007) Best places to un-wine. "Its fairytale pretty indoor/outdoor dining room among the vineyards is aptly named Old Vines Patio. Dinner here as the sun sets over the lake is a treat for the eyes and the palate." The New York Times (October 2006) - "Beyond our tables, the panorama of the lakefront, watercraft wake lines and row upon row of grapevines, with mountains in the distance, was mesmerizing." Wine Spectator (July 2004)- "One of the four best places to dine in the Okanagan."

I very much enjoyed my experience at Old Vines, our server Christian was attentive and kind. The pairings we great. Our sunchoke soup was under seasoned as a whole, only when I had a bite of the hazelnut pistou did I taste enough salt. In my opinion it was slightly too thick for a table side pour. The duck was excellent, very well cooked and seasoned. The rutabaga was however undercooked, nor did I taste the cardamom the menu described.
All small details of an otherwise excellent time.

A spectacular dining experience! Six of us had appetizers, mains, and dessert - not a single complaint about any portion. For a dining meal to be "exceptional" it is the little details that make or break it. My salmon had a perfect sear on one side, and my wife's duck selection was cooked to a perfect pink. Neither was even slightly overdone. The side dishes were also masterfully prepared - grilled brussel sprouts and onions, and a lemon rissotto with the salmon. And of course, a couple of bottles of the fabulous wine - a reserve Pinot Noir and a vintage Merlot - both were great. Great atmosphere and superior service throughout (Thanks Danielle!) I would highly recommend that anyone looking for a special dining experience check out Quail's Gate Old Vine Restaurant when you are anywhere close to Kelowna!

Went here for our anniversary and the ambiance was excellent, the service was great but the food was definitely overpriced and under quality. Not at all what we expected from a restaurant of this calibre.
The service was excellent and the server came back at the right times at the right pace.
All in all the ambiance was good, the service good, but the food was what dragged down the evening.

A little disappointed that we had made a reservation and the restaurant was empty and yet we were sat directly next to a table who were passionate in their conversation. I find that it's a bit frustrating when the whole restaurant is empty and as a couple who wanted a nice lunch away from our baby, we didn't need to be so close to the only other table. The white wine flight was warm and the pork appetizer in the feature menu was terrible. The main meal was great, as was the dessert. But overall I was not overly impressed with our experience.

Spent a premium price for an awful vegetarian meal. Went and bought fries after at dairy queen for how little i could eat there. $5 fries were much better than the $100 meal. The server did not taste test us our wine selections. Poor service even worse food. Which is such a shame because i love the wine and love the place. Get that restaurant together .

We have lived in Kelowna for 20 years and I have not had the pleasure of dining at Quails' Gate Estate Winery before. Jim (husband) and my son Nic took me there to celebrate my up coming 50th birthday . It was spectacular. Kelowna/West Kelowna are so luck to have such a fine establishment in our community. Food was delicious, wine pairing was perfect and service was outstanding.
Thank you,

Nikki

We were seated at a table which was located in a very cold part of the restaurant. The appetizers were very nice, but the mains were lacklustre. Service was mediocre. They didn’t seem friendly or overly attentive... nothing to make guests feels special. It was my husband’s bday and there was no dessert offer and no thank you or good bye when exiting establishment. We live near by and it made us sad to receive just mediocre service when the restaurant wasn’t even busy.

We booked on a Saturday for that evening and the restaurant could accommodate 2 individuals but not 3 at 6:30 pm so we ended up sitting at a table in the bar area. This bar area isn't bad but not like the main restaurant has so the experience was diminished somewhat. Also the bar area was empty so it felt a little odd. They had a special on until February 3rd of 3 courses for $45 which was good value. The food is good but not stellar. The server was very good to us.

As always, we enjoyed our lunch at Quails’ Gate Old Vines restaurant. It was a sunny day, and we enjoyed the beautiful view from a window table. The restaurant was very busy (start of Dine Around Kelowna) and the servers were as well. Though they were doing the best they could, we did have a few lulls in service. Anticipating such an upswing in business and having extra staff on hand would have been helpful. Our food, for the most part, was very nice: the carrot and ginger soup was wonderful and the farro risotto was delicious as was our dessert. However, two of our party ordered the brisket, and the meat was very, very dry. Considering it was a fixed menu and a really good deal, we were happy overall with our meals. And, of course, our bottle of Pinot Noir was delightful!

Quails' Gate Old Vines Restaurant is a pleasure to visit and dine at, the service is impeccable and on this visit we had Emily as our server, she was extremely knowledgeable and had great recommendations. We had an outstanding meal and of course complemented by the "Stewart Family" reserve 2009 Pinot Noir made our meal complete. Thanks so much Emily and crew for making our special evening to celebrate our daughters graduation from OC Culinary school so memorable.

The menu was small, which I understand as it is winter but one vegetarian/vegan option would have been very welcome.
It felt like we were condescended to by our server. Unless it was my imagination, the server was annoyed about his 15% gratuity.
