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!

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.

Reasonably well prepared food, but nothing exceptional. The ambience of this restaurant is totally lacking, and they have some truly poorly located tables by the back washroom doorway and registers, that make the dining experience one you don’t want to repeat there.

Excellent meal and experience!
Our ‘Valentines Dinner’ was out first experience with Waterfront Wines and we were very impressed. We ordered the Valentines dinner for two and were amazed by variety, and flavour, of the courses. Our waiter (5 years at WW) was knowledge and unobtrusive. The decor is farm house friendly and was very intimate.

The food and service were excellent but our table was in the very back of the restaurant overlooking the dishwasher and cook. Also, when the reservation was made it asked for special occasion and I put birthday but no mention. Probably won’t be back.

This place was amazing. We went for my husbands birthday and were not disappointed. We ended up showing up half an hour early from our reservation. We were happy to sit at the bar until our table was ready but the waiter had no problem giving our table to us early. Him and another person (I believe was the owner) were extremely attentive but not overbearing. If our waiter was busy, she swooped in and filled out water cups, served our food and took drink orders. The oysters were to die for, I could have had 100. The steaks were insanely amazing. And the potatoes were to die for. Prices were actually reasonable and I love the location for the restaurant. It's not downtown in the busy hub which was really nice, you felt very cozy and comfortable. We will definitely return.

Went for the Dine Around and was SO pleased. $45 for a 3 course meal and they didn't skimp on the portions like some places will do for this deal. Amazing food and service. This place is my go to when I want to treat myself, I love it every time!

Fantastic and innovative cuisine...reasonable pricing overall. We did the Dine Around and found it wonderful and plan to go back again. Definitely recommend. Make sure to make reservations since it is not a big place.

Unfortunately the wine tasted poor. It felt like there was resistance initially to deal with the issue but the server then tasted the wine and agreed and things went well.

The service was perfect. Lindsey was excellent. Didn’t hover but was there just as we needed her. Wine suggestion was great. The scallop risotto was amazing as was the beef tenderloin special. The best food in Kelowna!

Disappointed in the actual wine selection, had to ask for something that wasn’t on the menu just to get something we might like. Not impressed. What we ending up having after asking was local and it was great except I own the wine and the mark up was more the 100%. We think twice before we return.

Great location with parking right outside on non event nights at the arena. Really tasty, well prepared food. Service was excellent and felt well taken care of. It was a packed night and the restaurant is not huge so it was a bit loud (don’t think that could be avoided on New Years anywhere). Only negative was the table hadn’t been wiped properly. Would eat there again!

Staff was very attentive and timed their visits to our table perfectly.
Food was excellent except for the fries. Though cooked very well, had too much salt on them.
Definitely deserves another visit.

I had the duck, and it was excellent, the steak was very good as well. My friend had the tempura and felt it was bland. The portion sizes were enormous. My duck felt like it was enough for two and a half people. The wines were very nice. The place was small, and quiet loud, so it made it hard to converse. I would go here again.
