“Amazing food, service and views.”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Our friends had recommended this restaurant while visiting the vineyards - I'm so glad my husband and I listened. We had reservations for a late lunch on the patio. The views of the lake and the vineyard are phenomenal. The host who greeted us was friendly and inviting, our server was attentive, the water glasses were always filled, and the food was cooked, seasoned and presented perfectly. The manager himself served our main course. From start to finish – PHENOMENAL. I also found the price to be reasonable for quality and portion. I would come back in a heart beat.

This restaurant is overlooking the vines. Food and service is great although in the upper price range. Their wines are excellent. Go there for a romantic dinner.

“Great food, great views and great service”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

My husband and I treated ourselves to an anniversary dinner at Old Vines Restaurant. We had a great experience and the food was absolutely fantastic. We started with the Quebec fois gras which was yummy. I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the ribeye, both were done to perfection. We finished off with ice wine and shared a dessert assortment.
Recommend for any occasion.

“Celebration Dinner”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is one of our top picks for the Okanagan. This elegant vineyard post and beam restaurant boasts a stunning view, well timed service and excellent food i.e.: 7oz Cache Creek Tenderloin beef @ $48. Each entre comes with a suggested wine pairing. We’ve been for celebration meals and I’ve hosted a successful corporate event at Old Vines.

“a flume with a view”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Quail's Gate is not for the budget traveler, although ironically our waitress was a recovering one, so when I asked for a Ponasch, she actually knew what it was. It is an upper end restaurant but with upper end quality and service and top shelf view of the lake.

In our multiple trips to Kelowna we have spent many a peaceful evening on their patio enjoying the sunset over the lake and tasting of the pleasures of fine dining. We have never been rushed, and so our visits have been long and enjoyable often dipping into menu items just because we've never heard of them.

This is a beautiful place that is actually better at night when the sun is set and the patio lights are on. Enjoy it when you have plenty of time to relax.
