Waterfront Wines encompasses all that is amazing Okanagan cuisine. From the extensive local wine and craft beer list to the locally sourced meat, fish, and veg. Chef Mark and his team consistently deliver the best dining experience in Kelowna.

My parents and I dined at Waterfront in early July, as well as July of last year when I was in Kelowna visiting them. Both dinners were exceptional. I've dined at many of Kelowna's top restaurants and would probably say this is my favourite. Two years in a row we had fantastic food and excellent service. This year we tried... More

Waterfront wines is not in front of the water. Misleading name similar to their service. Ordered a bottle of wine and a meal. We waited 90 minutes for our food. Had to ask at 60 minutes if our food was actually coming. Oh yes be right out she says. Brutal. She then goes on to explain she understands that we... More

We popped in without a reservation and got a seat at the bar. The staff were great, friendly, informative and helpful. We had a delicious meal with a great wine that we had tasted on a wine tour. It had been an opportunist decision to go there but completely worth it. Expect to spend a bit but it was excellent... More

This is the kind of restaurant where when you walk in you know you're going to get a good glass of wine and an interesting group of people in the room with you but you don't know until the plate is delivered how wonderful the food will be. You can go dressed in your shorts are in a cocktail dress,... More

Went here for my birthday dinner. I ordered the special, gnocchi. It came with 4 pieces of gnocchi and several bites of vegetables. My partner wasn't blown away by his charcuterie plate. He told our waitress that it would've been nice with cheese. She replied that it could've come with cheese but it haven't been offered during the ordering. They... More

Thought of going to a place we haven't been to. We herd that water front wines was excellent so we went for dinner. The water was so great explaining everything. He knew what wine was best with what food. Service excellent and food fantastic. Not inexpensive but we'll worth trying it out.

Had a very good meal here with excellent service. The menu is small but what they do serve is cooked and presented very well. The wine list is excellent and I was given a sample of 2 wines as I wasn't sure which one to pick. Atmosphere is good and I would recommend it to anyone staying In Kelowna.
