The name BLOCK ONE
represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be
ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again.
That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE also
represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the
estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. Guests
will be amazed by the seating area for the outdoor portion of the
restaurant. You are covered by an engineering wonder above in a oneof-
a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the worlds
architectural community. The year-round restaurant moves to an
equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the
winter months.

It was a perfect evening - weather, food selection and ambiance. What an amazing setting, the restaurant is beautifully appointed with great views of the winery and Lake Okanagan. The halibut was cooked to perfection served on a bed of corn grits garnished with bite size chanterelle mushrooms and for the carnivore the tenderloin steak was to die for. Thank you to the attentive staff, we highly recommend BIock One Restaurant.

Block One is a restaurant without any “parallel”! A well curated menu and a setting amongst the vines and Leah’s warmth and hospitality made for an enjoyable experience! A must visit again!

We had a great lunch at Block One. My husband and I shared two appetizers, scallops with pork belly and the fish tacos. Both were delicious. The dessert was also outstanding. The service was excellent and the view as well.

Our second visit with friends was superb. Our waitress needed only to be an ambassador for the genius in the kitchen. She cheered us on and helped us make the perfect selections. We’ll be back.

Nice venue, good food, good service. The biggest downfall was there are only 2 washrooms combined for men,and women, for the restaurant out doors, and for the wine tasting area. These 2 washrooms are located outdoor. When asked if there were more indoors they unallowed people to go in as they were preparing for a wedding. Given the size of the restaurant and number of people in the wine tasting/restaurant area I feel this is absolutely unacceptable. I know there were more indoor washrooms, and I can appreciate it is for a private venue, but given number of people ration to washrooms this needs to be addressed. I think a business license has a 1 washroom to every 10 people? You do the math.
Hopefully this is something that will be dealt with in the future as speaking with all the others in line to use the washroom found it to be quite a joke given the beautiful vineyard/restaurant we were attending,

Although the ambiance and service were very good, the prices are high given the quantity of food received. $22.00 for a burger is outrageous! This pricing deters consumers from making wine purchases.
The tuna salad had only 2 tablespoons of tuna, not acceptable!
Given the restaurant pricing, we would not eat there again as it does not represent value!

Wonderful meal and service. I highly recommend the ceviche appetizer paired with Pinot Gris. The Salmon meal was wonderful, but my husband's roasted chicken was very dry. They went out of their way to make it a great dining experience though.

Wine good, food excellent but portions quite small, service was VERY slow...took half an hour to get a glass of wine and finally got our dinner but gave up on dessert. It is a long way to go for such an expensive meal if it would be worth it. I had lunch there the week before and the service was much better.
