“Good Food, but way too pricey!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Went for lunch yesterday. As others have said, great view, nice setting, friendly servers, but the items on the menu are overpriced. On top of it, the lunch menu didn't have much of a selection at all. There are other restaurants in Kelowna with better food, even though the view might not be as good at other places.

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

The restaurant has a very nice setting and great scenic views. The servers are very knowledgeable. We went there for lunch on a Monday in September, it was full. The dishes we had included: crab cakes, they were very good but a bit pricey (2 for $17); grilled squid salad- was very fresh and sweet; seafood stew - consisted of two jumbo mussel, pieces of salmon etc in a nice tomato broth; free range chicken pasta - very flavorfu. All the dishes were presented nicely, although the portions were smaller than what I would like. The total came to $85, including a glass of wine. It is a very good restaurant with good service, great views of the winery and the lake. i would recommend this restaurant.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Had lunch on the veranda. Great view of the vineyards and lake. Great ambiance and service. Had the crab cakes for an appetizer and the ling cod as the main course. Amazing! My husband has the pasta. An amazing dish as well. You cannot pass up the salted caramel bar for dessert!! Would highly recommend Quail's Gate if you are looking for fantastic food and wine in an spectacular setting.

“Delicious Dinner, Romantic Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner. We got a little table on the veranda that overlooks the vineyard and the lake. The location is spectacular and ambiance was incredibly intimate and romantic, with a sunset, garden lights and a well maintained garden surrounding you. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and was very attentive during our meal. Our entrees were to die for and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Our only disappointment came with dessert. We got the sampler plate and we found we weren't wowed at all by anything we tasted. However, this barely detracted from the amazing dinner we had. I would highly recommend Quail's Gate for anyone looking for a romantic night out.
