We felt the service lacked for the quality of food presented. Coming to a smaller venue with limited capacity we would have expected a more intimate experience. Not being a regular guest at the restaurant felt like an inconvenience to our server

Another excellent meal at Waterfront Wines - love the fact everything is done from scratch as baked mini strawberry pies as a special dessert. Always a pleasant surprise for specials that aren't on the menu.

I have had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant numerous times, however it was the first time my parents were with us.
I had been telling them how delicious the food is and hoped they would agree.
You did not disappoint, my parents loved the food, Shar was very attentive and kind as she walked them through the many choices.
Another perfect dining experience.
Thank you!

Tasty, interesting food. I had squid while my husband had elk and we both enjoyed our meals immensely. Not huge servings but enough. We shared the homemade chocolate mini donuts for dessert. Our server was informative and cheery so all in all a great experience.

We went for dinner for my Husbands birthday. The entire evening did not dissappoint.
Started with Bubbles, then the feature appetizer of Tempura Calamarie tender and nicely battered. Then we both ordered the Flat Iron Steak. In reading the reviews we knew this item has been a long time favorite. It was delicious! Full plate, veggies and smashed potatoes were cooked to perfection. Presentation was picture worthy.
I highly recommend Waterfront Wines for any night or occasion.

Every staff member was wearing a mask and we could see signs that the restaurant was sanitized. The service was superb and very informative. The Wagyu specials were all cooked to perfection with an incredibly tasteful sauce. It was the very best meal we have enjoyed here in Kelowna. It does not get any better than this restaurant. Hats off to the chef. 🙌🏻

I found the room in which we were seated was very loud. A group of friends came in and were seated in the other tables. The noise from their conversation was so loud that we couldn’t hear. Their conversation carried across the room. Either the whole room be booked for one group of friends or individual couples.
I enjoy coming to WF Wines but that night the noise was too loud to enjoy a quiet meal.
Also the server’s voice was very loud due to the noise in the room
