Amazing view, great food and service. Sommelier was very knowledgable and attentive. Wine was pretty good too, of course.

“Wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We spent Valentine's day dinner here and the atmosphere was perfect for that special date night. The staff worked with my wonderful boyfriend and had flowers waiting for me at the table when we arrived. Thank you for a wonderful night to remember.

“A great experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Our evening at Old Vines Restaurant may be the best dining experience we have ever had (and we have eaten in a few great restaurants around the world). The dinner menu has something for everyone including a few fish dishes, a couple foul choices, lamb and beef. I think our party of 7 each chose a different dish and we paired them with a Riesling and a Pinot Noir. The food was amazing and so was the presentation. The service from Julie was exemplary and the terrace setting overlooking the vineyard and lake was spectacular. The dinner was expensive but well worth the visit.

P.S. Just prior to dinner, we had a great wine tasting session with Larry Kalmakoff in the Wine Shop. Our friends visiting from Australia thoroughly enjoyed the attention and we can't thank Larry and Quails Gate enough.

“Lovely Spot, Spotty Service”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

25 minute wait for a cheese plate seemed a bit much.
On the bright side, the view was great, and the cheeses ended up being fantastic.
