We had a reservation for 8 at 830pm but unfortunately a table before us were taking their lovely time so they sat us at the bar. After waiting for 15mins the nice front of house manager brought us out 2 orders of their pomme frites on the house knowing that the large table was still not close to being finished. I thought that was very generous and kind of them to do. After waiting for almost an hour we finally got to our table. The food is by far one of the best food I have ever had in Kelowna. We order almost all the appys to share and there was nothing, and I mean nothing that we did not like. The plating is absolutely beautiful. Right before our mains came out,they brought us out a little treat. Chicken sausage that is featured in one of their main dishes, was extremely lovely and so nice of them to do! When the mains had arrived, my boyfriend ordered the special: 7oz striploin with parsnip and potato "donuts" and seasonal veg...for $32. In my opinion that is an amazing price for that type of meal. I couldn't get enough of the risotto happy so I ordered it as my main too...no regrets! Highly recommend to try that dish. Dessert was just amazing. I can't say anything bad about this place, even with the wait. Our server was very kind and knew her stuff and Ryan the FOH manager made out night.

Thanks Waterfront for putting all of us in a food coma!
The group of us do work in the industry, either front end or back end so we understand that you can't ask a table to leave but just those small things they did for us to make our wait more enjoyable was delightful! Will be coming back.

My Girlfriend and I went to the Waterfront for a nice dinner but got so much more, Our server Dawn was friendly and personable and the rest of the staff was very knowledgable and friendly. Every one in there made it their priority that we enjoyed our experience. What can I say about the food but outstanding! I have had some good meals in my life but this was one of those over the top experiences the flavours were well paired and we enjoyed on of the best wines I have had in a long time.
I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back next time I am in Kelowna.

The service was great...Leigh is an awesome server....great charm, spunk and she knows her stuff. The appetizers were really tasty but the mains were simply out of this world. Most of the party enjoyed the sablefish special served with perogis, I was transported to cooking heaven by the boneless beef shank with potato rostini...The food was beautifully presented on glass platters that enhanced the appearance but did not take away from the delicate and delicious flavours.
Definitely a place to dine out again...

Others gave this place great reviews but when I went there I felt the price was above what was justified by the service and food quality. I do not like giving poor reviews but this was not as good as friends had led me to expect.

My wife and I love coming here so much! The prices are on the high side so we only come here a couple of times a year for special occasions. This time was our wedding anniversary as a surprise for my wife. The staff were great about organizing a space at the bar for us so we could have pre-drink. The staff here are spectacular, you can tell that really enjoy working there. Our server has been there for years, that in itself says alot I think!
Food was some of the best we've ever had, again! Honestly some of the best food I've ever eaten in my entire live I have had right here at this restaurant. I won't go into any detail as I wouldn't want to spoil it for you, but do yourself a favour and go eat here asap.
Thank you WW for an amazing evening, we'll be back!
