“Quail's Gate Old Vines Does it Again”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We've been to this restaurant many times and have always had great food, great service, and fabulous views. And they did it again. This is the most consistently great restaurant we've been to. The presentation of the food is beautiful. Even though the place was quite busy, the service was excellent. The portion sizes are perfect. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food and wine - and don't forget the parmesan truffle french fries!

“Great views and service at Quail's Gate”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

I know this is meant for the restaurant reviews, but wanted to note that we went just for the wine tasting and it was great! Would love to have stayed to enjoy the restaurant as the reviews are wonderful, but we just didn't have time on this trip.

We received wonderful service despite this being an apparent hot spot and was packed with other tasters. Was nice that they had a table and chairs with coloring pages for kids, it kept our little one busy and it was greatly appreciated!

Beautiful grounds and lovely wine, we will be back next time to try the food!

“Perfect pairings and small bites with a fantastic view at the Wine Bar”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We spent a lovely afternoon at the Wine Bar, overlooking the lake and trying several items from the small bites menu with a flight of wine. We had the Halibut and Yukon Gold Fritters, the Seared Pork Belly, the Cache Creek Beef Cannelloni, and the Beet and Mint Salad - all super tasty. We loved the tapas style menu and suggested wine pairings. The atmosphere was lovely too. We were there late afternoon but it would be a lovely way to spend an evening although I don't believe it's open in the evening. Sue was fantastic and Bill Wightman (Winery Concierge) was super.

“Top-notch food & good service”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is the best restaurant we at while we were staying at Pineacres by the Lake near Peachland. The food was fresh, prepared with skill, and delicious. I had the cioppino which had a generous and perfectly prepared combination of shellfish and fish in a nicely spiced broth. My husband had a pasta dish that he enjoyed greatly and of which he finished the last drop. We each had a glass of the winery's excellent Merlot to accompany our meal. Very enjoyable.
