Amazing food.. great service! Would definitely go there again!
Awesome as always !!!
I was very excited about the food after looking at the menu, we were not disappointed! The flavours were lovely we had brunch, enjoyed everything!
I love Block One and will be sending all of my friends and co workers to this resturant.
We had an outstanding lunch at Block One, just two of us for a birthday celebration. Our server was attentive and considerate. I had the ling cod with kale and it was cooked perfectly. The cod was crispy on the outside but moist in the middle. And the kale was wilted perfectly with bacon which took the flavor up a notch. We also had dessert which looked gorgeous and tasted amazing. I will definitely be back.
After lunch we tasted some wine and both bought a couple of bottles. The wine is excellent.
Another great oyster feast at BLOCK ONE. The Happy Hour $3 Kusshi oysters are what we came for! Now oysters are on the menu all day. We wrapped up Happy Hour with Glamour Farming bubbly, Pinot Noir, truffle fries and Pork & Duck potstickers. A great time as always.
Great food and superior employees! Have always received over and above quality of food and service.
We had a lovely brunch at Block One and the service was great and the food was amazing. The waitress made great wine and food selections to help us with our choices.... we will be back.
Very friendly staff and the food was excellent will be back
Amazing everything! A restaurant that still understands true service.
We have never been disappointed at any time with BLOCK ONE. Kai and his culinary team do an excellent job with the menu, preparation and presentation. The food is always fresh and innovative.
The service staff take great care to see you are well looked after and go the extra mile. They have plenty of space, so social distancing is not a problem. IF you are looking for a unique experience it is worth the drive.
Great service, and friendly staff! Our food was also amazing!

Excellent service. We seat close to the speaker so the music was a bit loud. Food was very good although ravioli needed a minute longer to be cooked; pasta was too hard. Beautiful setting and interior.
Thank you for the feedback Stephen. I am sorry to hear that the pasta was not fully to your liking, we strive to make it right 100% and I will be certain to share this with the culinary team. Glad to learn you appreciation for service and the facility. We strive to provide exceptional service in all aspects and look forward to welcome you back again! Regards, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
Met up with my husband’s cousin not seen in over 30 years, and his new fiancée, for lunch. Everything was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the Glamour Farming Salad with Jumbo Prawns, and tried some Truffle Frites which were incredible! The 2019 Pinot Gris was very nice as well.
You are happy, that makes us happy so thank you for sharing the feedback PKMeston and the all star review, this is incredible! I am pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your food and wine and had a wonderful overall experience. I will surely relay this appreciation to our talented culinary team:)) We look forward to welcome you back again at Block one. Cheers, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
Both the service from Alex and the food was all fantastic. They offered a 3 course meal with wine pairings which was excellent value. Best Beef Wellington I’ve ever had!! Cleanliness and safety protocols were all in place and it didn’t detract from the ambiance of the restaurant. Great experience. We will be back for sure!
Dear guest, Thank you very much for the great feedback. Its a pleasure to hear recognition for our outstanding team member Alex and how she made your experience memorable, I will be sure to relay this to hear and how much this means to the team)) I am glad you enjoyed our special holiday menu as much with great wines from our own back yard in a comfortable and safe environment under current times.

Wonderful and safe environment...beautiful night out thank you
Dear Guest, Thank you for the all star review. I am delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable experience and that you felt safe dining with us. Look forward to welcome you back again soon at Block one! Best, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
The food was absolutely amazing, the view was gorgeous, the service was excellent, and the room set-up and COVID protocols made me feel very safe. We've been there 3 times in the last 3 weeks! It is a bit on the pricey side (although absolutely worth every penny!!) so I suggest going during Happy Hour from 3 - 5 pm as they have great prices then on both food and drink. Plus you can kick off your experience with a lovely wine tasting!! I think because of COVID reservations may be required so check online before you go. Enjoy!!
Dear Laurac, From serenity in surroundings to thoughtful offerings and a great service is what we strive for, so thank you so much for the great feedback! Our tasting room is open all 7 days a week and our Happy hour is offered Thursday to Monday from 3-5PM (Weekends included). We do recommend reservations, but if you decide to come in without one we'll be happy to accomodate with a mask and few of your details for the health protocols::)) Do visit again! Best, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
Always the best food and amazing friendly service. I love how they change their menu seasonally and are always coming up with delicious and creative new items. The crab cakes will be forever my favourite.

Our server was excellent. She had a great personality. The food was really good. I don't care for the wine much aside from the bubbly. We didn't get the requested low top table as requested but the atmosphere is great everywhere in there.

My husband and I walked to Block One and discovered upon arrival it was Sunday Brunch time, and we chose different items off that menu. Both meals were excellent, and very reasonably priced. The wine was very nice as well. We plan to return whenever possible.
Thank you Pk Meston. I am so glad you discovered our gem 'Blockone' and delighted to hear you had a great time with us! Our Sunday brunch is indeed one of its kind in the valley and liked very much. One again thank you very much for your feedback, I look forward to seeing you back again soon. Cheers, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
Great place for dinner. Beautiful dining room and view.
Got an appy to share 1 starter highball each a bottle of wine to share our 2 meals and a couple cheeses for dessert and our bill was $200 so reasonable but the food (as was expected) is a bit "different/unique" so myself I struggled to pick one that I would know I would like but food was good.
Thank you Becky for the feedback. Our Farm to Table Chef crafted menu is indeed very unique in offering, flair with the most sustainable choices. I am glad you enjoyed Dining here with us Best, Sid J. Restaurant Manager
Amazing as always!!
I’m 9 months pregnant it was our last date night. They made it so special, food was fantastic. And hands down safest restaurant I have been In During covid. They took cleaning protocols and service to a whole new level!
Noise level was low, good music and tables are super spaced out. Always worth the drive

Our service philosophy is based on creating unique experiences and I am so delighted to hear how safe and cared off you felt even in these difficult times. Our high cleanliness standards, stringent spacing requirements and service training are fully in adherence to all the mandated provincial health protocols for the health and safety of our guests and our valued team likewise!
