Love this restaurant so much we are going back with friends on Friday. Halibut was perfectly prepared. Started off with risotto with scallops...delicious. Extensive wine menu, food and attentive service make this restaurant one of our favorites.

Everything was good (4/5 stars), except we figured "Waterfront Wines" would be on the water, which it is not, and our server's mask didn't stay up at all, so they were adjusting it like multiple times during each interaction we had with them.

We had dinner for four. Meal was enjoyable--nothing special. I was surprised that the hostess and server were not wearing "mask" at this restaurant. We were visiting Kelowna from Vancouver--we did see other restaurants where the staff wore masks. If this is a concern to you at this time, I would visit another restaurant.

The food was good and the service was good also...however low stars due to their covid plan. "Plan" is a bad word. More like...its as if they didn't know covid19 was a thing. No facemasks on any cooks, servers, bartenders, no one. The staff consistently came way too close...as in...right in your personal space. I get that they have to deliver plates but they don't need to linger or stand that close whe explaining things or taking orders. Overall i was impressed with the food, their food and drink knowledge, and the service, but am extremely disappointed by the fact they didn't follow any of the required covid rules nor had to respect to protect their customers from possible transmission.

We booked dinner to celebrate our anniversary after Chef Mark and Details catered our wedding 9 years ago. The food at our wedding is still commented on as the best wedding meal many have ever had.

Dinner had a bit of a slow start with service as we sat there for 15 - 20 minutes watching the bartender, who ended up being our server, do other things behind the bar with no service at our table. After this the service was awesome no complaints.

Charcuterie plate to share, flat iron steak for him and the halibut for me. I have a dairy allergy and they worked around for my halibut and it was really amazing. The gnocchi on the plate were my favourite. This was probably the best meal I have had in the last 3 years in the Okanagan. Bravo Chef and team you did not disappoint.

My one comment is how Open table goes out of the way to ask if it is a special occasion , which it was. And then there is no mention about it when you are there. If you didn’t ask I honesty couldn’t care less but I guess asking set a bit of an expectation.

Overall an amazing dinner and evening to celebrate 9 years with some nostalgia. We will be back before next July.

Delicious and very creative dining experience!
However, I noted it’s our anniversary and requested a more desirable table, yet we got a table by the washroom...(note: pre-planning of your reservation log is very essential for future customers that’s willing to spend to celebrate special occasions). Knowledgeable staff should run your OpenTable. Our server was pleasant though.

As a former resident of Kelowna I used to dine here frequently. After moving I’ve made it my go to every time I’m in town. I can live without a lot of eateries but I’d give the opportunity I will ALWAYS dine here. The atmosphere is laid back west coast casual but you aren’t out of place dressed up. The food, amazing. Service friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The team at Waterfront puts it all together impeccably and we will always be a loyal supporter.

Very small crowded place.
We were actually lucky to get table outside. Inside, don't!
The food is good towards very good, but not exceptional as some people post it..., Not Chef style as advertised but still very decent and probably better than most places in DT Kelowna. .. I would rate it 3 stars out of 5 max.

As anticipated, Waterfront continues to deliver! Our meal was exceptionally flavourful and our server was very personable with a comprehensive understanding of the both the new dinner menu and the extensive local and international wine selection. It will not be long before we return again! Awesome visit with Chef Mark and his check ins are a hallmark of what makes Waterfront such a special night out.

Food and service was very good. Contrary to the name, there is no water front view. Happy hour is advertised and looked like a good deal, but the deal is only available if you sit at the bar; you can't order happy hour sitting at the tables. The seating was very uncomfortable in the restaurant section. The food and wine selection were good.

What an outstanding local restaurant. My partner and I travel to Kelowna from our home in Kamloops semi regularly and discovered Waterfront Wines this past weekend. What a great experience. From the welcoming and knowledgable staff to the ambience, and especially the food, (not to mention the wine list)a true 10 out of 10. We will be back!
