Winery
At Home Block Restaurant, we embrace the bounty of the Okanagan while our name pays homage to the Home Block Vineyard which surrounds us. Our building is crafted from fieldstone and 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood and our cuisine draws on those elemental roots. We integrate natural cooking methods like our wood-fired grill fueled by timber from local orchards and seasoned barrel staves. The result is honest, confident, and approachable food that unites flawlessly with CedarCreek wine.

Yet another outstanding winery restaurant to open in the Okanagan. High ceilings give it a large open space feeling yet still felt cozy with great view of the lake. Probably the best octopus we’ve had yet anywhere in the smoked black cod and octopus main. The burrata starter was also beautiful and delicious.

A great vineyard and restaurant. Of course great wine. Service was excellent. We found the menu changed since summer which is great but found it limited only because one of us doesn’t eat fish. Didn’t try desserts but menu looked great. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant!!

I have recommended CC to many of my friends and they have also had a great experience.

Just thought that some nice soft background music would be nice.

Love the open kitchen and view. Menu was simple and fresh. Wine selection was good and featured some sister wineries.

The architecture of the restaurant is unique and looks like an old stone longhouse. Inside the the vaulted ceiling features beautiful wood rafters.

Beer selection is lacking - obviously not a place to find unique beer selections.

The dining room itself makes an instant impression, with a high open ceiling and full height windows providing a wonderful view down the valley. When we visited the room was full but it did not feel crowded, and had a welcoming, comfortable vibe.
The menu, while not extensive, had enough attractive choices that making a decision was challenging. The wine list, of course, was superlative. The serving staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and helped greatly with our enjoyment of the evening.
We were fortunate enough to be seated near the kitchen and were fascinated by the chefs doing the food preparation.
Prices were reasonable for the quality of the experience. An excellent classy evening out.

Home Block is a wonderful restaurant for a winter lunch. The cuisine compliments the chilly vistas and the wines......wonderful. We shared the crispy squid and wedge salad for our appetizer.....a perfect combination of flavours and textures. For our main course, we each enjoyed the ling cod and prawns served over spinach with roasted cauliflower. Pure heaven!!! Even the after lunch latte was perfect. Home Block remains our favourite restaurant for lunch and for dinner. Lovely food, stunning architecture, glorious views......what more can you ask?

Nice ambiance and good food, but not memorable. I was asked whether it was a special occasion and responded that it was our anniversary. They said they would make a note of that. I really didn't care about receiving something special when I made the reservation but they raised my expectation when they said they noted it, and then they disregarded the information.

This was our 6th or 7th time visiting the Home Block Restaurant and first time going through Open Table. Our experience this time didn't match our expectations, (previous visits). It was my wife's birthday and her choice of restaurants due to the quality of food and atmosphere. When booking a table and asked by Open Table what the occasion was, (birthday) I anticipated and yes expected, (perhaps wrongly) that our booking would be looked at and an appropriate table for the occasion selected. Upon arrival we were shown a seat in the corner next to another couple away from the main dining area and zero view. To compound things the couple next to us were very nice but unfortunately very loud. The proximity of their table felt like we were sharing the same table. The appetizer we ordered, venison carpaccio was served with grilled radicchio. Unfortunately the radicchio was so bitter it ruined the dish and wine. The rest of the meal was great. Lessons learned; call and reserve the table you want and don't leave it up to someone else or assume they are on the same page as you.

Home block is a new favourite of ours. Vibe is fantastic. Great music. Great view. Wine selection features some the best of the Okanagan .... Presentation of plates is delightful !! Ingredients are fresh and local. Menu is a bit limited. Would be nice to see a few more standard appetizers and entree options. We dine here often so a bit more choice would be appreciated. Home block is a MUST when in the Okanagan Valley. Well done Cedar Creek team

The food was very well presented, arrived hot ( in the case of the cauliflower soup, very hot!) and service was well paced with the restaurant filling up early evening. Serving size was towards the generous rather than stingy end. One of us had the smaller serving of Pacchera; it was certainly ample. Food prices were reasonable for a higher end Kelowna restaurant, but the wine prices by the glass or bottle were up there by local standards; that said, Cedar Creek does have nice wines so it's more about what you feel willing to pay. The building has a great open feel and views, but it is clear there are still some engineering gremlins in terms of temperature control - it was probably over warm the night we were there. Hopefully with time that will work out. Noise wasn't too bad but might be an issue if there was a boisterous group in; you wonder if the rather cavernous design might have benefited from some sound baffling to reduce ceiling sound reflection. We will certainly be back - looking forward to eating on the terrace when seasons permit.

We decided to try the new restaurant at CedarCreek, having heard wonderful things about it. I booked a reservation a few weeks in advance to get the time we wanted. Driving up to the restaurant, the winery still has some construction left, but what they have updated is incredible. It really feels like you’re driving up to a luxury winery. The signage is very clear, and we had no troubles finding the place. We walked by the tasting room, and it’s quite impressive, with the beautiful floor to ceiling windows, rounded building and wines displayed. I would love to come back for a tasting.

The restaurant is a beautifully open space and mmmm with quite a view. The summers outside would be amazing. It was a chilly evening, but they have a fire bowl going, so we explored outside to take in the view of the lake and vineyard.

The menu had a great variety of veg, seafood and meat options. We went with the Burrata to start. This dish was an interesting display of focaccia pieces topped with prosciutto, some tasty and mildly spicy green pepper, pears and a yummy ball of burrata. It all worked well together and was a great portion for two to share. I ordered the striped cod and my husband the hangar steak. Both were cooked to perfection. My cod came on top of a nicely spiced black lentil bed. Yum! For dessert, we shared (but mostly I had the whole thing) a dark chocolate budino. So very good. It wasn’t overly sweet, and had a nice combo of crunch and smooth textures. I had an americano to finish the evening, and it was excellent as far as coffee service goes.

For wines, we tried their Estate Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurtzraminer. I do love a good Gewurtz and they did fantastically with their 2018. My husband was please with his Pinot and Sauv.

Will absolutely come back!

Excellent food & service. Lovely view. Our wine, the Pinot noir 2, was wonderful but the serving size was very small - perhaps 5 oz (we ordered a glass). I am not sure but I don’t believe in the wine menu they indicated the serving size of the glass - abit disappointed it was so small! Other than that I would recommend!

Our first time dining at Home Block after hearing several raving reviews from friends. We were looking forward to celebrating a 55th wedding anniversary but didn't experience the restaurant as we had hoped. Upon arrival we were told we would be sitting in the party room and the hostess made it sound like it was such a privilege to do so. We all soon realized the room was isolated and dark. The ambience was minimal and boring - an oversized office like dining table set in a room enveloped by barnwood. Sadly we missed out on the beautiful venue Home Block has to offer, missed out on the experience of dining 'out', the enjoyment of being around others, being part of vibe, etc. As a suggestion perhaps staff should not be so presumptuous and ask patrons first if they would like to sit in the party room - give them the option. That consideration and service would then correlate to the amazing quality of the food as well as its high prices.

We reserved a table by the window but were given a table in the high traffic area. When we asked about the empty tables by the window we were told they was reserved for someone special. We ended up sitting behind a stone wall. It was very noisy as we had four families with young children surrounding us. The waitress spoke low and it was difficult to hear her. The broccoli soup was bland. The buttermilk chicken sandwich had too much cayenne pepper on it to even eat the sauce. Once I scraped the sauce off the bun it was better. The French fries were very good. The hostess was very friendly and refunded us for the soup. No one seemed to notice the buttermilk sauce scraped off. We were there an hour and a half and the tables by the windows were still sitting empty as we left.
