Amazing food and service. Wish I could remember the name of our waitress but she was phenomenal. Great food and wine recommendations, helped us with a breakfast spot the next day and some wineries to tour based on the wine we liked. Fantastic night. Highly recommend.
We had great service and we enjoyed 2 great appetizers and shared a lovely trout dinner, a creative summer cocktail and wine of coarse!!!
Ubdercooked pasta and raw scallops. No discount given?
Other food was good.
Fantastic spot and service. Will be back! Inviting place with a great vide and feel. Food was Amazing and resonably priced for great quality.
We chose to dine on the patio which was comfortable on a warm evening. The menu only offered a Caesar salad and when we inquired if it was possible to get s small green salad we were told that the kitchen did not have other salad greens. The Caesar salad was okay - nice flavour in the dressing, chopped romaine lettuce, a piece of grilled baguette instead of croutons and a very light dusting of Parmesan cheese. Pretty run of the mill for $12.
We each ordered a glass of wine which was delivered half way through our salad course.
I ordered the hangar steak for my main and my partner had halibut. The steak was nicely cooked rare and tender. It was placed sliced on top of an enormous pile of mashed Yukon gold potatoes. Definitely a dish for a meat and potatoes person. Under the meat and drenched in pan juices were some zucchini blossoms and a few oyster mushrooms. While a nice addition to the plate, they were a bit drowned in both jus and potato. The whole dish was tasty, but quite unremarkable for $34.
We had asked for some bread during our salad course. It arrived well through our main course. We were told that the kitchen was backed up when we inquired when we might receive our bread.
My partner’s halibut was nicely cooked - dry fried in a hot pan I would guess. It too came with a few vegetables. Again, while tasty, was unremarkable for $37.
All in all, a mediocre experience. The food is fine, but lacklustre for the price and the wait staff and kitchen need to be better coordinated.
I always love coming here. Food is wonderful as is the service. I drag my husband along and he loves the flat iron steak but it is the only thing on the menu that he will eat. The selection is limited but all dishes are prepared to perfection. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. Would love a little more selection for the picky eaters but for myself I loved the steelhead. It was beautiful. I always try something different when we eat here. The charcuterie was wonderful. Something for everyone!
I love Waterfront Wines. It is still as good as it was always. That’s why it remains my favourite restaurant in Kelowna. Eat and drink local at its finest!
Expensive but our waitress was top notch. We had so much fun.
We enjoyed, as always.
Inviting and comfortable. Pate was excellent so was the prawn risotto.
This restaurant was a real find.
Great food, with interesting specials; wonderful and innovative cocktails; and excellent service.
I was lucky enough to go to Burrowing Owl, Quails Gate and Waterfront Wines 3 days in a row. What Waterfront Wines lacks in view, it makes up for with outstanding food, better portion sizes and a cheaper bill compared to the other restaurants in its league.
The service and food were excellent. A Very next nice ambience for having a get together of friends
Excellent food and service ...as always. One of my favorites in Kelowna.
Pork Belly special was fantastic! Great wine selection and fantastic service
Not much I can say except excellent. Our server was attentive, helped us pair our wine with our appies and mains. Halibut was cooked perfectly. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Kelowna.
I thought waterfront did a good job. the only thing I would say is that I had put on open table that this was out anniversary. nothing was done, no big deal but why have that option. so I was expecting something . food was good, service was good.
thank you very much
Very noisy;didn’t like looking at exit door and leaking water and staff mopping floor during my meal
The wine selection and menu options were great for what we were looking for. The braised beef and roasted trout were fantastic. The charcuterie board was a perfect starter!
Outstanding personalized service, very tasty food. Yes, we could have a conversation. 🌈🎶🥂🍾🇨🇦
Great food, but felt it was overpriced. Seating in the booths is slightly uncomfortable
Great food, and great service. Had a fantastic night.
WE really enjoyed the food and the great service. The food presentation was great all items were full of flavour and hot. This was our first time in this restaurant and we will come back. Good location and no problem with parking.
The food was very flavorful and well cooked. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Time and time again the food is always exceptional as is the service.
They had beer and food, both tasted good. Really really good.
They were super accomadating and great service, food was amazing and server finished sentences when asking questions about wine. Had pairings ready for the specials too. AMAZING
It wasn't bad but it wasn't great. They were playing some loud rock & roll in the background that did not seem too appropriate. The Thai soup that was their soup de jour was a little too basic and too thin, they could have made it creamier. My wife ordered their beef "flat iron" and requested that it be cooked medium rare and asked the waiter how the medium rare was cooked and the waiter assured her that it was a "perfect " medium rare. It came as cooked to a medium. I ordered their cod special served with mussels. Just before it was served the waiter said the mussels were not available and they wanted to substitute shrimps instead. It was OK though but nothing that we could not have prepared at home ourselves. The desserts were not that appealing either.
The meal was fantastic and very well prepared, cooked and plated. Felt like the wait staff could have been more forward and friendly rather than just doing enough to get a decent tip, but I still felt accomodated.
A fine dining meal in a casual setting. The trout was cooked perfectly with a crispy skin and the hollandaise sauce made the meal. The pork also had a salty crispy skin and fluffy gnocchi. We will definitely be back again.
Although I received a confirmation from the restaurant in question that my table would be ready at 6:30 - when we arrived at the restaurant - it was closed. It was rather frustrating as I had a client in from out of town, and we were both looking forward to this dining experience. Not sure how I could get a confirmation that my table was ready, and yet the establishment itself was not open.
Both meals were cool.
Server didn’t ask for feed back till dinner was almost consumed.
Food was excellent quality and well prepared but was not inspiring. Also the deserts we very good but perhaps a bit busy with too much going on. Maybe less is more?
gal educated us at every turn so our experience was excellent.
Would like to see a couple more vegetarian/vegan options for entree.
Food was extraordinary and innovative and absolutely delicious! Lots of variety on the menu. Service was exceptional. Great ambiance. Desserts are to die for!
Very enjoyable evening. The service was friendly and informed as well as being on top of things throughout the evening. Nice flavour combinations in the food. Will definitely come back again!
Flat iron steak and mash potatoes are soooo goood
Cheese plate fabulous, great soup and lovely ling cod. Server a great help.
The food was amazing. Cozy restaurant. Loud so not intimate. Very good service. great wine list.
