Went there for an evening dinner with my wife. Had a reservation. Were seated next to the washroom (didn't know it at the time). Felt almost like an imposition to the waitress. Had a plate of charcuterie and another plate of tapas. The housemade hummus and happy days chevre spread were incredible! The fresh bread was fantastic! Unfortunately all of... More

We arrived with a group with business and families and was meet with a fantastic menu that is on par with any major food city. No kids allowed as it is not licensed for kids to be on the premise, so we left our underage kids back at hotel with room service. Knowledgable wait staff and the wine selection with... More

Absolutely incredible service, food and drinks. The 4 of us started with different unique cocktails (all delicious) and then shared 2 appetizers. For entrées we had the halibut, duck, pork and steak. We each thought we had the BEST DISH, which speaks volumes of the quality of food. Desserts were too good to pass on - we shared the hazelnut... More

A restaurant with good food and attentive service but in an area with stiff competition. Not a bad establishment but average among higher end restaurants in the Kelowna area.

We visited Waterfront to celebrate a 50th birthday. The service was impeccable. We started with an amazing feature portobello mushroom appetizer that everyone loved. The flavours were so rich. Our party then ordered the steelhead trout, halibut and the flat iron steak. Needless to say the presentation was flawless and the plates were left completely empty. Desserts left the same... More
