We had a wonderful dinner at Waterfront Wines. We've heard great things about this restaurant and are surprised it took us so long to finally get there. Our server was friendly, knowledgable and we never felt rushed at all. We shared some scallops (the kimchi was amazing!), charcuterie plate (yum!), indian style braised beef and a creme brulee.

This beautifully presented, unpretentious place definitely deserves the great reviews it's getting here. The chef is incredibly talented as is the sommelier who gave brilliant advice on which wines to take with each dish. She even gave us a crash course in tasting it! The other server was also highly knowledgable and passionate about the menu and gave us a... More

My husband surprised me with a special evening at Waterfront Wines recently. What a lovely place for a romantic dinner! I can't say enough good things about this little restaurant. It is definitely my new favourite place to eat. Our server was absolutely amazing! She was extremely helpful and made excellent suggestions. We were not disappointed. The wine, food...everything was... More

My wife and I came here for the first time a few days ago and we absolutely loved everything! Our server was extremely helpful and did a great job of describing the menu items we were curious about. We ended up ordering the scallops and the charcuterie plate to share, then we split the Indian style braised beef as a... More

Intimate yet rustic atmosphere with a very knowledgable, courteous and friendly staff. The food and wine selection is amazing. Every dish and sauce is made on site. The staff is very knowledgeable when helping you make your selection of wine and will also make sure that your dietary restrictions are adhered to. A must have dining experience when visiting Kelowna.

My husband and I dined at Waterfront Wines before the Rockets game on Saturday and had yet another outstanding experience. We shared several small plates which were ALL awesome but I wanted to mention the pork belly (a feature that evening which was the BEST pork belly I have ever tasted .... it absolutely melted in your mouth). The service,... More

Heard great things about this top rated Kelowna restaurant. After living here 5 years decided to give it a try. Nice décor, great bartender, excellent service. My meat, which was the daily special was inedible. Couldn't cut it, couldn't chew it. I ate the rest of the plate and some of my wife's and told my server about the meat.... More

I've been several times, and several things stick out. The first time my husband ate sweetbreads, and LOVED them. And the time I was on this horrid no-sugar no-booze diet, and the chef made me this amazingly exquisite little pink grapefruit desert. Not on the menu - just for me. The wine selection is great and the food shows so... More
