Amazing and worth every penny

The ability to fully relax and be in a comfortable atmosphere while indulging in amazing local food and wines. The staff know what they are doing, from servers to kitchen staff, everyone seemed to love what they do and it very much showed.

There are so many good restaurants in the wineries around Kelowna, that perhaps we were spoiled. Waterfront Wines had an interesting menu, but we were not impressed with the cooking. The duck and the steaks were all ordered medium rare but came blue-rare. Service was okay. Restaurant was extremely noisy. Worst of all, wines were extremely pricey - unforgivable in... More

We had an incredible meal at Waterfront Wines...the service was excellent, the atmosphere was warm & cozy, and the wine recommendations superb. The fois gras was the best I've ever tasted and the elk tartare super tasty. I also had their feature cocktail (white sangria with golden raspberry puree - WOW!). We hope get back here before we fly out!!!

The great thing about waterfront wines is the service. I just love there knowledge of wines and pairings. There vegetables and sides are fresh and local. I do enjoy there menu but find there meats a bit bland and not the best of cuts for the quality that it deserves.

The selected menu has been delicious both times that I have had dinner here. They do not skimp on the ingredients, I feel that I am eating quality and that my meal is prepared by someone who is passionate about food. The staff are really great at this location. The ambiance is really nice at this restaurant, I would recommend... More

As locals, we have frequented this restaurant several times over the years. The food is always very good, often excellent. This menu showcases local food and wine at its best. The flavours on the plate are unique and tasty. The menu isn't huge, but the offerings are varied enough to please most. The wine list is also very good. I... More

Amazing food, wonderful wines, and impressive service! Our concierge at the Manteo recommended this restaurant and we are so thankful because it was our best dining experience in Kelowna! My mother had the handmade ricotta cannelloni and I had a few scrumptious appetizers. Everything was fresh and local and the mix of flavours will impress! The sommelier recommended the perfect...

My husband and I went to Waterfront Wines in August 2015. Everything was wonderful from the service, the wine and the food. I asked the waiter for gluten free recommendations. He was very knowledgeable about what was in every dish. He went through all the items and told me which were celiac safe and which were at risk for gluten... More

A wonderful meal enjoyed with dear friends while on a break in Kelowna. I suggest you reserve if you can as you don't want to miss it.
