    Everything was just okay. My salad appetizer was the favourite. Two appetizers came out well before the 3rd. Seems like it was forgot. Flavours were just medium.

    Ordered the octopus and pappardelle appetizers and the affogato dessert. The octopus was delicious: it paired well with everything on the plate and it was well cooked. The papparadelle was also delicious although the mushrooms were over salted. The affogato was very good minus the walnut liquor. Overall, it was a great dinner and I’ll return. Sometimes this place is hit or miss but generally it’s a hit.

    The foie gras is amazing. The duck and steelhead were cooked perfectly. Our server was very attentive. The entire evening was perfect. And they accommodated my allergies and didn’t leave me with tasteless food. Everything was amazing. Thank you for the great night!

    Food was wonderful. And portions were larger than we expected. We both had the special (halibut) and it was done perfectly. I like that they use a lot of local ingredients. Tried a couple cocktails as well that were creative and tasty. Definitely will be going back.

    The food was excellent. Our waiter was friendly. Found the noise level too high for my liking, however the resturant was full and every one was having a good time, so what do you expect. One thing i would like to mention is how uncomfortable the chair was. I am 6'1'' and the chair was too low, the seat was too slippery and the back sloped too much. Maybe that was the intention.

    We enjoyed a delicious meal at Waterfront Wines recently and can't wait to go back. The food was excellent, possibly the best steak tartare and duck breast dishes we've had, anywhere. We enjoyed the entire meal, along with our dessert, on this occasion the chocolate and coconut cake. We sat up at the bar and enjoyed excellent service from start to finish. We can highly recommend this restaurant and will return soon. Great to see such a quality dining establishment in Kelowna.
