First visit, our whole party enjoyed the meal and the service very much.
Flat iron was exceptional and I haven't stopped thinking about the mushroom side dish, excellent food
We were there earlier in the day for a drink on the patio... retuned later for dinner... we were extremely fortunate to be able to have the same person look after us! ( Aimee) she was amazing.... really took great care of us and made an already wonderful afternoon/evening a terrific all around experience! We will definitely recommend and return!
The food is great. The attention to detail was appreciated. The house made Items were delicious.
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.
My 60th Birthday and our favorite restaurant in Kelowna thanks 💕
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.
Excellent food, wine, and service. Would definitely go again!
Amazing restaurant with great staff. Made our special occasion so much better
Always amazing food and service!
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.
Always such a pleasure to dine at Waterfront. The staff is top notch and very knowledgeable. The food never disappoints. The kitchen always does an amazing job accommodating any dietary restrictions. Definitely the best restaurant in Kelowna.
All around amazing place! The employees and servives was on point! I Would recommend this to all my freinds and family.
The steak is great, creme brûlée was my absolute fave and the strawberry mojito is so tasty
Waterfront Wines never disappoints! Our meal and experience was perfection!
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.
Very nice is one of our favourite restaurants in Kelowna
30th wedding anniversary.
Celebrating Golden Anniversary
This was our first in restaurant dining "post covid". I was worried that the safety protocols would detract from the experience but this was not the case at all. We had a lovely evening and the food was spectacular, as always.
Fantastic meal! The service great. The food is phenomenal.
What a great first meal out post Covid - the new menu is great - service fantastic!
Always a reliable night out.
Best restaurant and food in Kelowna. Without compare.
Always great! Staff, food and wine were amazing:) If you haven’t tried to Foie yet, you are missing out!
The patio atmosphere was the only thing that didn't match my expectations. Felt like cheap backyard furniture for such a nice & expensive restaurant.
Best dining experience ever! The staff is fabulous here.
We were celebrating with family and everything was perfect. Thank you
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.
We like the actions you’ve taken to address the virus, table spacing, etc.
Casual, great food. No white table clothes but great service.
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.
We had been in California for six weeks and love getting home and going to one of our favourite spots. Food and service were great as usual!
Great food and service.
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!
We have been at Waterfront Wines 5 times in the past. Always enjoyed our food and experience. This last time the food did not meet our expectations, but we know things happen and will not let it hamper us from returning. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Always wonderful food, expert friendly service and comfortable setting.
