Love the location of this restaurant. The menu is limited but what they do serve is very good. The restaurant is very small so if you can make a reservation I would suggest you do so.

Went here with friends prior to the Okanagan wine festival. The restaurant itself is well designed with a modern yet warm atmosphere. We had a lovely spot in the back room. The service was exceptional. Varied local and imported wine list as well as unique specialty drink list. Or, let them know your drink preference and they will create it... More

My daughter and I were in Kelowna for a visit and decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal. I had gone on line to see "best resteraunts" and Waterfront came up on top. I booked reservations (I recommend you do that). The day of our dinner I happened to read reviews and many of them were negative. We almost... More

Nice place, excellent service & good wine. Food I would say is closer to average than 'very good'. We (two couples) chose this place as we were looking for somewhere with good food and not too expensive. We eventually settled on this place because it seemed what we were after. Having a two dollar rating on tripadvisor is, without a... More

I visited for dinner and without a reservation I just managed a seat at the bar. This place lived up to its reputation in the book- "The butcher, The baker, The wine & cheese maker" with fine food, great service, and interesting characters at the bar! The locally sourced food was cooked to perfection!

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
