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."

We had a superb lunch: tomato risotto and a braised rabbit with gnocchi. The accompanying wines (all Quail's Gate, naturally) were very good and we really liked the Reserve Chardonnay and the Optima. The view is also magnificent.

Lovely ambiance and relaxed atmosphere. Staff friendly but not overbearing. Food was OK but missed fresh vegetables-none served with any of the mains at our table and sides did not look that appealing either. I had scallops and I actually tipped my plate while I ate to allow all the oil to run to one side. Perhaps the chef needs to update and appreciate the way people like to eat in a more healthy way these days. (I am 68!) So the atmosphere was so great and we loved all the seafood choices but suggest using less unhealthy fats and using more vegetables.

Fantastic dinner, ambiance was lovely but very noisy in the dining room . Waiter was attentive but very loud likely due to the noise level in the room.
We definitely would recommend.

Excellent food and wine. Service allowed enough time to linger over wine before and after. Jonah at the bar was excellent- letting me taste til I found my favourite.

Food was outstanding. Service was good and time to bring the food was the worst part. It took almost two hours to bring the dishes- we had to rush. It need some inprovenent due to the fact that most people that comes for lunch on weekdays had others things to do after.

Everything was perfect. The wine was amazing (Old Vines Foch, my favourite red), the Scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious as well as everything else on my plate. Our waiter, Mason, was very professional and polite and we were well taken care of. A great place for fine dining in a comfortable setting. I'll be back whenever I visit Kelowna!

Went to the restaurant as part of a Sister/Mother/Daughter weekend . We were from out of town and didn't know what to expect. The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate those of us in the group with a gluten/dairy/egg allergy. Would highly recommend for a fabulous meal out!

Beautiful atmosphere and food was delicious. The service could have been better though. I found it very strange to have empty plates not removed promptly and having to refill our own glasses with your bottle of wine!

Long established and well known, this restaurant just keeps getting better. Not the cheapest, but one of the best and most reliable in the Okanagan.l - the food is always great.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Quails Gate earlier this week.

Having not dined here previously, we were very pleased with every aspect of our evening. From how we were greeted,the ambience, every team member tending to us and of course, the food and wine!

Our special evening was truly spectacular!

We look forward to returning soon!

A lovely evening shared with family. Service was exceptional as was the dining experience.
Service at the bar as we waited for our table was a little slow but did not detour from the evening.

The setting could not be more lovely. We were able to walk around the grounds before our reservation and the view was stunning. This was a special luncheon with family and the food and wine parings were perfect. The service was friendly and attentive. Looking forward to our next visit.

Loved the ambience and the servers were wonderful. But it took over an hour to get our entrees to us. And they only brought out the bread basket ~5 min before the mains came out. Food was amazing when it came though. But not sure if it was worth the long wait.

We each ordered our favorite cocktail, Rye Manhattan. They were both very watery, really watered down and had an overall taste of Listerine mouthwash. They were undrinkable so we sent them back. Food was average. Neither of us finished our meal. Lovely setting next to the vineyard. Beautiful view!

Let me preface this by saying I’m not easily impressed or wowed by many Restos.... but WOW Quail’s Gate was such an amazing treat. Stopped here for lunch as my girlfriend and I explored the wine trail. Not only are the Winery’s grounds beautiful and worthy of a photo op, but the restaurant was top notch. Had the crab and corn soup and salmon tartare as apps, followed by flat iron steak and pork chop for mains, and pavlova for dessert. Truly epic meal, delicious in every way. Paired with half a bottle of Gewurztraminer. Wouldn’t have changed a thing. Our server Kelly was also awesome, super attentive and energetic. Will definitely come back next time I’m in Kelowna!

Beautiful location and excellent service. The food was good but very pricy for the portion size. The bowl
Of soup was good but served with cornbread the size of an ice cube... ????? Could at least have been a small muffin size. The risotto was good but a bit bland.

We have eaten at your restaurant 3 times in the past month. The first was a dinner that was just fantastic. We were treated royally and the food was delicious. Our 2nd meal was lunch with our kids who were visiting from the states. We had friendly service and great food again.
But our last meal, lunch last Monday, was disappointing. For some reason the staff, from the hostesses at the door to our servers, were quite aloof and not friendly. The music was so loud we had to ask to have it turned down so we could visit. Very unusual to have loud music at your restaurant. And, unfortunately we were disappointed in our food. Our guest enjoyed her steak and I had a nice appetizer. But my husband’s tuna had strange sauces and my corn soup was not hot.
