“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went to this restaurant for the first time just before Christmas with friends. We had planned to go here to eat many times before and for one reason or another never made it. Our loss! The aroma from the open kitchen when you walk in the door lets you know you are in for a treat. Everything from the appetizer to entree to dessert was wonderful. Our server was knowledgable about both the food and the wines available and made our dining experience enjoyable without being intrusive. The restaurant boasts 'spit roast Thursdays' which we will definitely be checking out in the new year when they make a return to the menu.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Had a beautiful birthday dinner at this "avant-garde' style restaurant. The atmosphere was next to none, the wine list had a nice selection, and the service was prompt, friendly and just enough! We really enjoyed the charcutrie and the calamari, YUM! The calamari strips were so tender. For our main courses we had the steak, the lamb and salmon. While I found the salmon to be quite ordinary ( delicious just nothing special) the Morracan Lamb was out of this world. Done two ways with falvours so bold.. we couldnt get enough. The steak was cooked perfectly,, and served on the tastiest potatoes. We finished with dessert, a beautiful sorbet, a breadpudding and a hazelnut ganache tort.. All very nice. A good way to end an incredible evening. I wouldnt have changed a thing.

“Favourite place to eat in Kelowna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Excellent wine list, delicious menu (I especially love all of the shared plates), relaxed atmosphere and a friendly & very knowledgeable staff. This is my favourite place to go for a glass of wine and some appies or a full meal in Kelowna. It is also newly renovated - beautiful open kitchen, cozy ambiance and a patio in the summer. I have eaten here MANY times and have always had a fantastic experience! EXCELLENT VALUE.

“Really impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We had an excellent meal at this trendy spot in downtown Kelowna. Nice open kitchen, simple decor, very pleasant staff. Gourmet food, great local wine list. Glad to have found such a terrific foodie place in Kelowna!
The only drawback I will mention is that our 17 year old daughter cannot join us here, as guests must be 19 or older (drinking age) to dine at the Waterfront.
