We brought our visitors from England to the Vineyard Terrace restaurant for lunch and they were absolutely overawed. Despite having travelled and dined in many places throughout Europe, North America and Africa, they raved that it was probably the most memorable meal they had ever enjoyed. The view was spectacular, the service excellent and the food and wine outstanding.

Fantastic lunch. The ambiance is relaxed and peaceful. Friendly, attentive servers who have a good knowledge of the frequently changing menu. The wines are outstanding.

Chef Jeremy has created a wonderfully concise and thoughtful menu. The dishes are fresh, colourful and leave you feeling satisfied without the 'cannonball' effect that too many deep frying loving chefs prefer in this town.

And finally!....... A restaurant that understands the importance of a good espresso to finish off a meal. Nicely done Cedar Creek. Congratulations.

The food is good however based on the restaurant's website and the winery's reputation, expected more for the price. Service was mediocre, the server was absent most of the time we were dining there - even though it was not that busy. For example, my (small) glass of water was only filled once and no one offered more water the next 45 minutes. When the server asked if we were liking the food, sounded more like a script than an honest interest. Didn't feel appreciated as a customer. Would still recommend to friends mainly because it's a beautiful winery, but will make a point to keep expectations "moderate".

My husband and myself had a fabulous Sunday mid afternoon Lunch/Dinner. It was a great place for our anniversary celebration. I had the Pork, great flavours and the veggies were excellent. Lots of food. My husband had the Tuna, such a treat. Great selection of wines. Distance is not far out of Kelowna and easy to find. If you get lost do not give up !! Well worth the drive.

I didn't wanted it to end! Probably the best lunch date I've been on in many years. Perfectly timed, perfect weather, incredible fresh and inventive food, great service, a quick greeting with the chef......we will be back. Cedar creek, thank you.

My party and I had a reservation and upon arriving, we learned there was a wine tour about to commence. We were told it was going to be 45 mins long. It went over an hour. I was impressed with them moving it to whatever time we were ready. That's one advantage of going to a small and intimate place. They were very lax and not strict about times and all. Great Platinum Membership benefits. Sign up cos it's free! Picturesque view. It was gorgeous that day and we were lucky cos it was raining the day before. I just wish they had stone-baked pizza on their menu. :-)

A neighborhood and Okanagan gem, the scenery is amazing and the wine is hands down of the best in the valley. Our service (Courtney) was friendly, approachable as well as very knowledgeable about the food and the wine, she made the afternoon even a little more fun. We shared so we could try a little more of the menu; our food was superb, corn chowder, salad, charcuterie, chicken main. Seasoned to perfection, local fresh ingredients, what more can you ask for for a Saturday lunch overlooking the stunning valley. Chef Tucker has really raised the bar and we will be back with friends and family as often as possible.

We were surprised that a charcuterie board only came with mustard pea shoots some strange kind of parsnip or celery root and 3 or 4 types of thinly sliced meats. We had to pay $6-7 for an ounce of cheese. No olives, no pickles, no cheeses. Take a look at the charcuterie board that Gray Monk offers as well as Mission Hill. If you had similar offerings on yours, it would be outstanding!

We have been to Cedar Creek many times and as usual they make a meal out very special. The food, the service and ambiance always live up to our expectations. We will certainly be back again.

My expectations were large, a vineyard terrace restaurant with an advertized chef. We had just been seated when we began to experience a light rain shower - there is no roof. We had to ask to have one of the umbrellas positioned over our table. The great setting and ambience were marred by the busy parking lot. Half way through the meal a large semi truck backed up the driveway - backup signal, air brakes, diesel smell, blocking half the view. The food was well presented and creative for the most part, but the cheese plate looked like leftovers from a previous diner, toasted remnants of the bread served with the appies with a few crumbs of cheese. Later, as we enjoyed the better view from the pavilion, I thought about what if...

It was my first time to eat at the cedar creek terrasse. The food was very good, the wine pairing as well.
The scenic view great with the sun as a gift.

I recommend this winery for great moment.

The food was excellent, but outrageously priced. E.g.: I had a beet & watermelon "salad" that consisted of ~4 small chunks of yellow watermelon--combined they would have made up 1 small, wedge-shaped slice of watermelon at most--& ~5 thin beet slices--totalling about 1/2 a golf-ball sized beet. Worse was that a delivery semi-trailer backed up to the building, beeping loudly, for several minutes, and parked right beside the deck where we were eating--so the top of the truck was about level with the floor of the deck. It idled there for 20 minutes, surrounding us with unpleasant noise and exhaust fumes. This is unacceptable during a $60 pp lunch. The driver should have been asked to turn off the vehicle. Disappointing!

Service - Our server was funny, friendly and very welcoming.
Scene - Gorgeous view.
Food - We had the seared tuna, trout, farmers vegetables, kale salad and chocolate mousse for dessert. They were all fresh and tasty with unique flavors.

For the price that you pay, it's very reasonable and worth it!

We enjoyed our lunch at CedarCreek Estate Winery. All our dishes were well prepared and presented. My only comment, they were a bit on the small side. Ever table has a great view, we should have asked however to have the umbrella raised as it did get quite warm. We appreciated the wait staff for being pleasant and efficient, we were however in close proximity to the kitchen so it got a little hectic, to the point of distracting. Overall, a grreat location to experience fine cuisine and wine in the Okanagan.

I enjoyed a relaxed terrace lunch at Cedar Creek with two out-of-town friends. Outstanding, inventive menu, using only the best local produce. Unlike a previous reviewer, I found that the prices were more than reasonable. Every dish was under $20 which is not the case at other wineries. A lovely kale and cherry salad ($12), followed by a fresh, lively tuna and tabbouleh main course ($19). Washed down with a few glasses of rose.....and I was in heaven. I left feeling completely satisfied. Will most definitely be going back before the summer is out to see what else the chef comes up with.

The restaurant is a bit tight in space. We sit right next to the first corner table coming out from the wine tasting room to the right. The table was positioned in an angle and when server came out from the kitchen it was a bit of potential "collision path" between the server and, my wife. And against the wall, there were empty chairs...so that was tight.

Our server was great, great smile, friendly attitude. We like her. Food is not bad, just a bit to the salty side. The special, Halibut, the price was a bit on the high side, probably due to the fact the price was not mentioned by our waitress. Our friend ordered that and we did not.

The wine tasting area is way too crowded. There are others with better tasting area.

The food was beautifully presented and delicious.
However I think the restaurant is for females only as a male could not survive on the very small portions

We went for wine tasting and lunch. The person helping with the wine tasting was very informative. We bought 3 bottles of wine. We then had lunch and it was good but I feel I expected more. We found the menu did not offer what we were looking for. What we did order was very good though especially the side of fresh vegetables. Just thought would be more to choose from.

Stunning view. Menu is limited to small salads without option of protein or heavy hot dinner selections. Cheesecake dessert was size of a postage stamp and was more like a gelatinous mousse. Recommend going for a snack to take in the view - glass of wine and some cheeses.

I took my daughter, at her request, to lunch on her birthday. We had a lovely table by the view. The waitress was so sweet. We had time to view the menu. We asked questions about the lunch and she was so helpful to pinpoint what we would enjoy. The wine was perfect. She was helpful in letting us sample, so as to find the perfect match for our preferrences with the meal. Overall my daughter and I will be sure to recommend the restaurant and we will be back. We wanted to try the soup and we will next time. Thanks

Dined at Cedar Creek a few days ago for lunch. What a perfect sunny spot with a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The views were lovely and the gardens are pretty. Our server was friendly, professional and attentive without being intrusive. The food was outstanding! New chef this season who has some seriously talent. A concise, focused menu, carefully paired with Cedar Creek's wines. I enjoyed the Albacore tuna and tabbouleh salad. Also, a beautifully presented Charcuterie board with local goat cheese. If you're looking for a relaxed lunch in the sun with fresh, well priced meals, look no further.
