We frequently go to this restaurant whenever we visit Kelowna, but Tuesday night's dinner was at a whole new level for creativity and excellence. Three of us shared two tapas to start: octopus and calarmari platter, and a beet and chevre salad. Both were beautifully presented with small surprises of tastes accompanying the dishes. My table mates ordered beef shank... More

On arrival waitresses all very friendly and mostly quite attentive. Lucky to get a table as there was a cancellation and it was outside which was needed as such a lovely warm evening. Saw it was cancellation as lady updated computer. Main lady seating people was a bit stressed and heard her speaking quite forcefully to waitresses, really no need... More

Waterfront Wines is indeed one of the best dining experiences we've had in Kelowna - we were seated at an outdoor table, and immediately greeted by our sever, Leigh, who made us feel right at home. Our meal was outstanding, including a delicious appetizer, paired with the featured white wine, Fandango, and then the main course paired with the feature... More

We had just arrived in Kelowna, and headed straight for dinner. Picked this restaurant from tripadvisor ratings. The food was good. The service friendly. The recommended rose wine was delicious. This is a wonderful casual dining place providing a typical laid back Kelowna experience. It is almost cafe style, with much higher end food. I thought they were value for... More

We happened to drive by a restaurant off the beaten path in Kelowna north of the arena. I spotted the name and of course looked it up online when we got back to the hotel after a long day of driving around the area. It looked with a great place for tapas so we walked over from the Delta Resort... More

The food was cooked perfectly and it was very tasty, we had the duck and the halibut. It was pricey, similar to high end restaurants and/or wineries in the valley. I had difficulty hearing my partner because we were seated below the speaker and the music was loud enough to drown out most of his voice. It was a hot... More

Funny how "Waterfront" Wines was no where near the water, but the worst part was the lack of professional wine service. I'm from Santa Monica, California, so I guess my expectations are high, but the waiter had no clue and seemed uninterested in talking about the pour. The food was okay but small and hellishly overpriced. We tried to say... More

Mojito was good. Shared 4 appetizers with someone for our meal. We started with the Pan Seared Quadra Island Scallops and Albacore Tuna Tartar, Tonnato Sauce which was very tasty. For our meal we had the Charcuterie Plate and the Polpo Fritto which was just okay.

A re-review of this fine dining restaurant in Kelowna. It has been enlarged somewhat, but remains compact and unpretentious - and is NOT on the waterfront. But this gem of a restaurant, featuring magnificent food by Executive Chef Mark Filatow, continues to offer superb meals, creatively prepared and beautifully presented. We recently dined with another couple from out of town.... More

It has been a while since we last ate here and the standard of food preparation has definitely deteriorated. The shared charcuterie plate for appetizer was barely enough for one, never mind two. I had the Morrocan inspired Lamb dish as an entree and whilst I enjoy my lamb on the rare side, this was completely raw. The rest of... More
