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 one-of-
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.

Please note that our one pet-friendly table is not available at this time. We do have a space to put your pooch outside of the restaurant floor!

                              Tuna was good. Wine was usual, fine. It’s very loud in the restaurant now that it is closed and not open to the outside. The wagyu dish was terrible. The potato’s had no taste, pre made and not good at all. What is going on with this dish? Vegetables were very salty and again I couldn’t finish them. The only thing that saved the night was our waiter. Desserts were fine, again, I’m used to the ‘old’ pre Covid 50th restaurant, just disappointed all around. I saw my friends dinner entrees and I wish I had ordered the lamb, looked better. Balanced and seasoned. Waiter: He was spectacular and did an amazing job from start to finish. Set the standard for a lovely evening.

                              I had higher expectations than what our party experienced. There were a couple of errors with our order, I can get over that, but the food was not high caliber. Basic fries were not fresh and unsalted, my brunch bowl was salty and the flavour combination was off, with the maple beans overtaking the rest of the dish. The burger was good, but we could not appreciate the Wagyu beef because there was too much else going on - the bacon seemed to compete. The rose wine was awesome, I would go back, but only for that, not to eat.

                              I was disappointed with the menu . The food I ordered was delicious . However, I don’t eat lamb or beef . I’m hoping for a chicken choice and a pasta choice .

                              We went for happy hour with my family, including family from out of town. It’s unfortunate that the restaurant does not seat happy hour in the restaurant- only at the bar (outdoors was closed) even though the restaurant was only 25% occupied. We couldn’t be as social as we liked and the bar was full of dust/flour from the cook area. Almost felt like they didn’t want to serve a happy hour menu which they should cancel rather than the awkward approach to it - I felt a bit embarrassed at the approach for both visits in May. Service and food were amazing. Unfortunate experience as we have spent almost $1000 in our two happy hour visits in May. We don’t know if we’ll return in spite of such great food and service experience due to the message that made us feel unwelcome.

                              Block 1, 50th Parallel never disappoints. From the arrival to the final farewell, the service is excellent. The variety and quality of the various dishes creates a dilemma: What shall I eat! Each dish is beautifully presented and 50th Parallel’s wines compliment a first class dining experience.

                              Due to construction on Commonage we were delayed, but a call to the restaurant allowed us to arrive about 15 minutes late. We arrived about 3/4 hours before dinner hour but we dined on the small olive dish with wine, and made our dinner order at 5PM. Taste was awesome for mains and deserts.

                              Block One is our go to place in the North Okanagan, to us there is nothing that touches the ambience and quality of the cuisine in the region. Their wines are exceptional, the Chardonnay is our favourite. Best appetizer is the Beef Tartare, my wife and I pretty much go there just for this one dish. They make great main dishes as well including Halibut and probably the best pizza in the region by a county mile. Its a beautiful drive if you come from the Predator Ridge area and has a view of the lake and mountains in the background. Outstanding.

                              Way too expensive for the quality of the food, the taste of the food was nothing special, the portions were ridiculously small. Price was absolutely absurd. Nothing special given for Mother’s Day. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

                              Family night out, pre Mother’s Day. Heard this place was highly rated and it lived up to its reputation. Food was perfectly prepared, presentation was great and flavours exceptional. Nothing bad to say other than book early to avoid disappointment. Rarely give out 5’s but this place deserves it.

                              It was our anniversary, we were greeted with a glass of wine. The waiter was excellent. The noice was overpowering. It took a bit to relax. Over all a great experience, we will be back
