A word from Liquidity Bistro
Liquidity Bistro offers a modern urban take on classic Canadian wine country cuisine with influences from around the Okanagan Valley and the Pacific North West. Our menu evolves with the seasons to show off the area’s amazing bounty.

Liquidity Bistro is a reflection of the terroir that is Okanagan Falls. The menu combines produce from our local farmers and purveyors with select ingredients chosen from the chefs own garden. An extensive range of wines from all members of the Okanagan Falls Winery Association are featured representing this unique micro climate that sits at the south end of Skaha Lake.

Our food philosophy at the bistro is to represent the areas farmers and producers and the hard work they do day in and day out by keeping the food simple, clean, fresh and non-pretentious and respecting the ingredients in all their simplest form.

The food, the service and the wine are paired to deliver a wine country experience unique to Okanagan Falls.

    We had a wonderful time and meal at Liquidity for my birthday. Friends had been there for lunch and had recommended it to us. What a great location, hidden away in the vineyards above OK Falls with a fantastic view. Our food was amazing, I ordered the Cioppino and it was full of seafood and the spices were amazing. We had a lovely table by the window and our waiter was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all our friends.

    Great view. Ambience modern, clean and hard edged. Service was efficient and personable. Good variety on the wine list, we enjoyed the Voignier. It would be nice to have a featured wine at somewhat reduced price. Have already recommended the Bistro to a couple of friends.

    Read about this Bistro in the Vancouver Sun so decided to try it out....and would highly recommend going to this beautiful spot in OK Falls....only 30 minutes from Penticton and well worth the drive. Take the scenic Laheshore Drive all the way there (not the highway) and dine under the stars in the most scenic restaurant...with a view of the valley and vineyards and the lake. The food is amazing and the service is too.....wonderful food. We will be back!

    The view from the restaurant patio, overlooking the hills, vineyards, and Vaseux Lake is simply gorgeous. The service was friendly, timely, and on point. Liquidity wines are very good - reason enough to visit - and the food was delicious. We highly recommend Liquidity Bistro to anyone seeking a very good dining experience replete with top notch Okanagan wines and views to match.

    The bistro opened May 2014, as we were told the previous year they would be open. We can early and were seated. We enjoyed the salad with fresh ingredients. I had the BBQ pork flat bread and hubbie had the pasta dish - which he couldn't stop talking about. Lovely reflecting pool and views into the vineyard - bring a pair a of sunglasses as the sun is bright. Our server was attentive and friendly. Great for lunch and relaxing in nature.

    We loved the setting in the country, and the silver tree. It feels like entering an art gallery, but quickly changes to the wine bar on the left and the restaurant on the right. The windows provide a spectacular view of the green slopes and the lake in the distance. My friend and I could have stayed all day, soaking in the view. The menu was sufficient to make a hard choice between several different lunch items. We both chose a chicken baguette with a bowl of really tasty kale soup. My friend ordered a second glass of Liquidity Pinot Gris while I opted for the Lemon Tart and coffee. Very tasty! Our waiter was very conscientious and did a fine job of filling our needs.

    drove from Kelowna to Liquidity on recommendation from friends and it was well worth the drive. The food, wine, service, and view were exceptional and made our "day trip" with friends a great day. They were very accommodating for one of our friends who had a couple of allergies but did not make him stand out (very discreet & efficient) Too bad their Pinot Noir was sold out or we would have taken some home

    Second visit here. This time for lunch. Same issues as before. The service is friendly, attentive and always present but never in your face. Full marks. The view and the setting is gorgeous, one of the best in the area. Food still needs work. Wonderful presentation, very creative ideas, falls short on execution. Under-seasoned (or not at all), flavors didn't gel together (too sweet or acidic). Quite expensive for what is delivered. Go for a glass of wine and an appy, skip the mains.

    We had been visiting another nearby vineyard and were driving by when we noticed the very interesting art work at the gate. We were pleasantly surprised at the lovely restaurant on site...great food - the charcuterie platter and potted salmon appetizer - both interesting options at lunch plus a stunning view of the valley encouraged us to return for dinner that same evening. We started with a shared beet salad with creamy ricotta....yummmmmm! A very nice halibut meal for my companion plus a well prepared hanger steak option for me. Would definitely return next time we stay in Penticton.

There were 5 of us for lunch, we had a lovely bottle of white wine and shared flatbreads and beet salads. Our server was most helpful and the service was impeccable. We will definitely return and will pass the good word onto others!

    First of all, Liquidity responded to my email regarding whether or not they were child-friendly. They were! My only suggestion would be that they offer a few more items for kids (a protein). They currently offer only cheese pizza or pasta. We both enjoyed a delicious salmon fennel chowder, my Niçoise salad and his bucatini were tasty, and the pot de chocolat was devoured by all!

    Most all of the winery restaurants in the Okanagan have a view, but I think this one takes it. It's proportioned with lots to look at in a setting that is also quiet. We sat outside and enjoyed the spatious layout - no cramped tables here. The food portions were perfect for our appetites and full of complex combinations of flavours that really impressed us from start to finish. Service was very professional without being stuffy and was never intrusive or rushed. One minor error with our desert was fixed immediately and before we even said anything! We will not only be back when we can but we will also bring our visitors here as well.

    This restaurant overall was very good but I suspect some growing pains? The appetizers were quite good with the soup of the day very flavourful and hearty. The beet salad was good but needed a little more flavour. The ling cod buccatini was disappointing. The pasta was bland and only sparsely covered in sauce. The other main course, the halibut was tasteful and the presentation appealing, but the fish a tad overcooked. The wine list boasts wines from the immediate region and Liquidity's Pinot Noir was delightful and went well with the food. The chocolate dessert is excellent. The plates all have excellent presentation and service is excellent. The view overlooking Vaseaux lake is superb.

    Getting it right out of the way, the view from the patio is amazing, one of the best in the entire Okanagan. The room is very stark white, it works fairly well with their decor and uniforms. Service was quite good. Attentive without being overbearing, eager to check with the kitchen when we had questions which is always appreciated. Knowledge of wine list and menu was good. Appetizers, specifically salmon in jar was great, beautifully prepared and well executed. Dessert were the same, elegant and big flavors. Main courses were not good. No salt or pepper was ever harmed (or looked at ) in preparing our meals. Neither of us finished them. Incredibly bland. Overall a very nice experience, would go back for appys, a glass of wine and dessert.

    We had a lovely lunch and were absolutely thrilled with the quality of food and the friendly service. A real treat to see the chef out in the garden clipping edible flowers that ended up on our beet salad ! Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys great food and a spectacular wine country viewa. Only area for improvement is to smooth out the service, staff seemed a little unsure and you could tell they were not quite jelling as a team.
