I was in Kelowna on a business trip and we went here for supper after our flight landed since it was only a short walk from our hotel. I had the steelhead trout and it was delicious! It came with corn gnocchi and they were delicious! The server was very friendly and attentive! I Would definitely go back!

Waterfront Wine's mission statement is "Local food, Worldly Inspiration". This is an accurate definition of what the restaurant is about. My wife and I both had the soup appetizer and the nightly special. That day it was chicken with a pea and corn risotto. The soup was cream of fennel that had an intense fennel flavour and was smooth as... More

The server was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgable. We had the Flat Iron steak, Trout, and Pork Loin. All were excellent. The flourless cake was a fantastic desert. Wine was a bit steeply priced.

On line menu does not correspond with actual menu. Mussels & oysters not available. We had 4 different main courses. Steelhead trout was dry & overdone. Roasted duck was flavourful but tuff. Halibut was a total disappointment. Not only was it dry & over cooked, the flavour was repulsive. Olive past did not help. The Black angus beef was fabulous... More

We were not made aware of the place being no minors. Rude staff literally kicked us out. It's not waterfront - false advertising. Big disappointment.

On a recent family trip, we were rudely kicked out by the hostess because my cousin was underage (16 years). While we now know that the restaurant has a liquor-first license, this was never properly communicated to us through the reservation process. And it is clearly branded as a restaurant, not a pub, bar, or night club. We were particularly... More

Very good service. Great atmosphere. Had the seared halibut and it was delicious. Would certainly go back and recommend. Each of my friends equally enjoyed their meals (pork loin, Angus Flat Iron).

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

Thursday 5 pm reservation and started with the assorted cheese platter. We had the mains of trout and perogies and finished with the ginger peach ice cream cake, creme brûlée , and blueberry tart. All were creatively presented, perfectly prepared with well balanced contrasting flavours. We really enjoyed the meal. Our server with the Australian accent was exceptional although I... More
