This restaurant relies much more on hype than on actual delivery. The decor is officelike. The food is average to below average: The dressing on the salmon tataki is way too salty. The artic char was overdone and completely tasteless, no seasoning whatsoever. The mashed potatoes accompanying the Angus Flat Iron had a strange consistency. The best dish of the... More

Had a great experience at Waterfront Wines with my boyfriend. The feature wine that was suggested was absolutely delicious, complimented our food perfectly and was a great price. All the food was spectacular, definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Kelowna. The service was great, everyone was very attentive of our needs. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet night... More

Having lived in Kelowna for ten years, I have tried many different dinner spots here with my husband. This has by far been our favorite so far! The service is always very attentive and friendly and the food is so special and delicious!

We had a reservation tonight for 8:30, the hostess was very friendly and showed us to our table right away! This was followed by complimentary bubbly (it's my birthday!). The waitress was very knowledgable and the service was amazing. We both decided to go with the 3 course meal. My partner had the beef tenderloin and I had the Arctic... More

Having never before eaten at this restaurant and it being a mere 10 minute walk from my daughter's condo ( even at -17 degrees C ) we decided to try it. The food was a revelation, the wine list excellent and the service unsurpassed with excellent advice on the choice of wine from the sommelier. When next in Kelowna we... More

First time at Waterfront Wines. Overall it was a fantastic night. Service was very attentive, had great recommendations for wine, cheese, etc. Lots of very professional attention table-side with plate delivery & clearing, re-setting between courses and often done by other servers in restaurant. Always felt attended to. Food was phenomenal. The portion size for the prices were great, we're... More

My husband and I were given this reservation through our wine tour guide, so otherwise I would have never known about it. From start to finish it was just fantastic. We got surprise courses of sweetbreads and charcuterie platters, the staff of course was knowledgable of all the wines and the bartender made a wicked vodka martini. Great casual atmosphere,...
