The food was ok, actually too salty. We were seated immediately and were served immediately. Because we were there for a leisurely lunch, not a quick, we have to get back to work lunch, we were rushed. Cleaning our table before we had finished, wanting to take our order without hardly giving us time to review the menu. We were seated at 12 and done within an 1/2 hour. Disappointed!

Very nice place. Good ambiance. Very friendly staff. Dinner was very good and nicely presented. However, the plates should have been hot.

Had the Valentines special the night before Valentines because I neglected to make a reservation early enough. The food was expensive but exceptional. The service was good even though a mistake or two was made. The place could use a bit more ambiance if they are going for a high end experience as it is priced that way. Not very intimate with the seating.

This cafe is always welcoming in nature. Service is excellent along with food that is always prepared with a different “twist” of flavours that are always enjoyed!

I have ate lunch at Waterfront Cafe many many times and it never dissapoints - always excellent food and service! I would not hesitate to say that it is easily one of the best places to grab lunch in Kelowna!

Not the best. The chicken sandwich should have been a nice bread. It was thigh meat that was tough and fatty. Yuk

Enjoyed a lovely 2 hour lunch with a friend from out of town! Came here on a referral from an acquaintance! The food (quality and quantity) and the service were excellent! Can’t wait to go back, and again to enjoy patio dining in the summer!

This is my go to place for brunch - food and service is always phenomenal. They also have fantastic lunch and dinner options. Cute little bistro, great patio in summer and to die for pastries.

Food and service were great. This restaurant is in a great location with lots of parking. The tables and chairs were quite small and not very comfortable.

We have been coming here for awhile now. It’s too bad they are ending happy hour at 5 when it used to be 6. Not sure why they change a good thing. We may have to find a new place.

I really enjoyed Waterfront Cafe on Friday afternoon. We had a work event for a colleague that was retiring and everyone enjoyed the cocktails and small meals (from the happy hour menu). The service was excellent. Thanks again.

The menu was small but there was something for everyone - meat lovers, fish lovers and vegetarians. I had the steelhead trout and the mix of flavours was outstanding! It was probably the best dishI have had anywhere for a long time it rivalled Michelin Star restaurants!
We enjoyed it so much we came back the following day for lunch and we were not disappointed!

I went with my daughter for dinner. We ordered the pomme frites with garlic aoli as a starter and it was a good portion. She had the margarita pizza and it was delicious. I ordered the chicken thighs with brown rice and lentils and it was also delicious and hearty. They have the best London Fog and my daughter ordered 2 of them one to have with dinner and the other one to go. Waterfront is one of our new favourites and we come all the way from the Westside to have a latte and a pastry in the morning. Always good. Happy we tried dinner this time and will have to come and try their lunch.

Nice location near the lake and a park although parking is a bit challenging. The food was very good although the service was just average as our server disappeared from the time we ordered our food until it was time to pay our bill.

The vegetable fritters were downright bad. They were greasy, poorly presented, and tasted about as plain and plain can be.

I had the steelhead and it was done to perfection! The vegetables and smashed potatoes however really had no taste. We came on a Monday so the Quails Gate wine was a good value and the fries during happy hour were awesome.
Our waitress seemed new. She was wearing a shortee top showing her midrift...didn't seem very professional.

Everything was amazing except our server. We all tipped 20% and she didn’t thank a single one of us.
She needs to learn basic manners.
