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."

Service was outstanding, they were extremly accommodating for my family and made New Years Day brunch extra special for my family. The only complaint I had was that the ceaser my husband ordered was nearly as expensive as breakfast..

I was very disappointed in the fact that I made this reservation WEEKS in advance and we didnt get a table by the window... especially since it was noted this was for a 60th birthday. Guess I should have just showed up like everyone else with no reso to get a good seat.

Our reservation was at 10:45. We arrived at 10:42 and had to wait until about 10:50 until the host showed up at the front desk and seated us.

Food was very good. Decent value.

Old vines is a premium culinary experience and they never disappoint. The front and back of house make for an unforgettable night every time. Daniello our server made us feel cared for and attended to without being smothered. He had all the best pairings and suggestions when needed. On top of that my partner is celiac and he insured that we had the right options there to cater. I will most definitely be back again and again!

It was our 38th wedding anniversary and we couldn’t wait to tryout the new restaurant. We arrived a little early for our reservation so we did a wine tasting first which was wonderful. Once seated our server introduced herself right away and was very attentive throughout the evening. Our food was delicious and the atmosphere awesome with high energy.

We live near Quail’s Gate - and it has been a favourite of ours. We go on special occasions. Last week was our anniversary, so we went. The service was excellent as usual, and the place was clean, quiet and just really pleasant. The meal was a real let down.
We both started with the special soup - that in fact was a great start - it was delicious, but the meals were disappointing. I ordered a rib eye steak, which was thin - but tasty. BUT it was almost buried under two large scoops of cooked spinach. (I dont particularly like spinach. Hidden under these two blobs were two small (baby) potatoes that were split in two, and that was the meal. I ate the steak and the potatoes but not much more. We were not offered any other vegetables. My wife ordered a scallop special. The scallops were relatively small- but tasty, but the entire plate was filled with risotto, that was OK at best - but nothing else- no vegetables - a plate full of risotto with 5 small scallops floating in a corner. We both had a desert and left. Sadly, we talked on the way home and decided that future special occasions would be somewhere else.. Wa are sad about this, as we have enjoyed dining at Quails Gate many times in the past. For the price that we paid, we expected better.

As always the ambience is amazing, especially with the lights strung on the vines. Our server was everything a server should be pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Appetizers were 10/10; the duck pappardelle was maybe an 11/10. One of the entrees (scallop risotto) was also outstanding. Only minor disappointment was the $49 ribeye. Don't get me wrong, it was good but at that price I expect exceptional.

Loved our server, and the location, have had many fine, fine meals at Quails Gate, in fact the best meal of 2018 was at Quails Gate, however this one was not one of the best for any of us, I'm so sorry to say. There was something just not as excellent as usual about any of our meals.
