A very pleasant wind up to the summer/fall wine season.
My boyfriend and I went here for date night and were really pleased with our experience - the food & wine were delicious, service was amazing, and the ambiance was romantic but comfortable ... highly recommend!
The food is a mess on your plate - definitely not fine dining. When ordering a bottle that is sold by the glass they won’t let you taste a drop to see which bottle you’d like - I was told I could go upstairs to the tasting room- silly. The server was very blasé. I wouldn’t go back
Besides a friends get together, it was also our farewell to a winery we call "one of our favourites".
This was the third time I was at The Grapevine this week. Duck Confit twice! I love it. Sorry to see the restaurant close for the winter. I look forward to a new season in the spring.
We were seated indoors because it was raining out the day we had lunch there. The inside area is definitely not as nice as the veranda seating whicht has the spectacular view. The indoor dining area could be spruced up a bit. We had the duck confit, spaetzle and red cabbage. So glad they brought the red cabbage back as a side with the duck. The food was absolutely delicious!! Our waitress was Treena and I simply cannot say enough good things about her. She is very knowledgeable and super friendly. The courses were timed perfectly and we did not feel rushed. Highly recommend this amazing restaurant. The scenery reminds me of Lake Como in Italy.
One of my favourite places for both food and scenery as well as wine tasting afterwards. This time however I was a little disappointed with the special being seafood newburg. It was somewhat watery and the mussels in particular were very very tiny as well as over cooked. I hope this was onetime problem item as it was not inexpensive.
This was the second gathering of a former Dinner Club of friends and was as lovely as we remembered it.
A little let down when we first walked in, but don't let the decor fool you! Although our service was slow to start with, the waitress knew everything on the menu and made some great recommendations. The food was better than expected and prices were reasonable. This isn't the class of restaurant as some of the larger wineries, but I'm glad we tried it. Family friendly, relaxed, uncomfortable chairs....great view!
Fantastic food paired with excellent wines from Gray Monk.
Excellent food, great wine beautiful view. Took a long time, compared to everyone else to get main course, though others were having same as us
Great food the wine tasting was good.The outside flowers were outstanding! It was fun my sister and I bought Pinot Gris very good!
We are a busy family! The restaurant / patio and service was a great way to escape and celebrate my son's Birthday! Our waitress was fabulous and we appreciated the service.
Very popular restaurant. Great service. Excellent food selection. Such a treat!
This is the fourth time we have been to Gray Monk and have never been disappointed. Wonderful food and great staff
Amazing as always! Service, food ambience cannot be beat. An absolute gem.
My wife and I took my parents there while they were visiting the Okanagan. Menu was smaller but varied we all found something to enjoy. The portion were just the right size and presentation was beautiful, all meals were done to our liking. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
What a awesome setting looking out over Lake Okanagan! And the food was great. We did the 4pm tour and tasting then went down for dinner so it was a perfect afternoon. We highly recommend this place. Deena was our waitress and she was great. Really enjoyed chatting with her and the service was great. Best bread pudding we have ever had. AWESOME!
Everytime we have eaten at Grapevine Restaurant, we've loved it and so have all of our guests. We have brought people from 5 countries to this restaurant and do so because the ambience, people and food is a great experience. Thank you especially to Trina for outstanding service every single time!
This was our third visit to Grey Monk and it didn't disappoint. The menu offers such a variety of tasty options it's hard to choose. I decided on the Sable Fish bowl and LOVED it. Janelle took great care of us and her knowledge of wines is exceptional. We left with a few increadable bottles of Red and Rose to enjoy at home. We'll be back.
We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Grape Vine Restaurant . Interesting menu choices, beautifully presented, and paired with their wines. Definitely a place to re-visit!!
We had a wonderful time dining at the Grapevine restaurant. We arrived at 530pm mid September. The evening quickly turned very cold. The server offered us blankets but the patio would be much more comfortable this time of year if they had patio heaters. Having said that the food and service were excellent.
Food is not fancy but quite tasty. Ambiance definitely needs to be improved--Lino floors, no table cloths, no decor, tables lined up in rows like military.
The restaurant itself isn't much to speak of. It's really just a patio with lawn chairs and tables. However, the view is incredible! So, even though you pay $35 for an entrée that isn't much to rave about, the view is really what makes this place special.
Firstly, the food was outstanding. We've dined in many winery restaurants and the food and presentation was top notch. Service was wonderful. Treena was happy, friendly, fun, efficient and informative. However...the ambiance had a drastic disconnect from the quality of the food. We arrived at 6:30pm (before sunset) on a sunny but getting chilly and windy evening. The huge indoor area was empty of tables. The only available seating was outside on a large covered patio at a metal table on metal chairs. Blankets were offered but even after tucking in didn't help much. Eventually we were moved to inside. Slowly, most tables and diners were moved inside. Inside was really a big hall. Lighting was really bright. But then the wine and food appeared and we were happy enough. Grapevine...please, please figure out who you are. To complement your superb food you simply need to stage the place with tablecloths, candles and fresh flowers on the tables, subtler lighting, and comfortable chairs for dinner service. Until then...I might drop in for a quick lunch on a warm day. But not again for a fine dining dinner.
Very pricey for the entree- over the top. We were disappointed in the meal- beef ribs were good but the shrimp were dry and dry and cold - $36.
View is just wonderful from the patio- vines, deer, and just beautiful greenery.
Another delightful visit with delicious food and wine. This time it was with family from the UK who were most impressed; it was their second visit to Grey Monk.
While the food, wine and service were very good, we found it very expensive compared to other restaurants of the same calibre. Will probably choose to dine elsewhere next time.
Fabulous food, wine and service! The view is amazing it's a favorite of our family.
This is now one of my favourite restaurants in the Okanagan! Great food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommended!
A great place to taker family and friends, the view is awesome so is the food and wine. Entree's are always well presented and taste is fantastic, desserts are to die for......
The menu had a nice variety and the food was amazing. The dining patio and grounds were beautiful and the view was breathtaking.
I would definitely recommend it! And, of course, fantastic wine!!!
The view was amazing and the food was beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and flavourful . The wine was fabulous! It would have been nice to have a bit more space in between tables for more privacy and subtle music in the background for ambiance. The menu prices are high so when you dine at those prices you expect a bit more for your money such as candles and table clothes on the tables and more comfortable seating. Overall, the view was breathtaking. We will return but only on special occasions.
great view of lake and great service. food was decent but overpriced for what you got.
Our experience was exceptional. We are locals (married couple in our 40's) who go to grey monk every summer one time just because it's the best summer dining around. This time we invited our friends who were also celebrating an anniversary and we had a blast. The service is wonderful, Treena really is a true professional and is so familiar with grey monk that it was nice to have a long time server as our host for the evening. The wine is amazing, the food and specials were really nice, and the desserts were top notch. We had a great time and never felt rushed, even though we were there for 3 hours. It was a great night!
I was able to get a reservation for dinner with a friend of mine who has never been to Gray Monk despite having lived in Kelowna for 20+ years! We were so impressed with the view of the lake from the parking lot and had hoped that we would get a table with a view. We were not disappointed as that was all they had, tables with lots of view of the lake! Our server was amazing (Trina?)--very professional, jubilant, knowledgeable, and attentive. My friend and I had wonderful meals, I had the roasted duck breast and my friend had prawns with risotto. The wine pairings were excellent. We were so impressed with our experience at Gray Monk that we plan to do it again soon.
Great food, great view and great service. Waitress was very attentive and water was always filled. Went their for our anniversary and looking forward to our next visit.
We had a wonderful birthday lunch for our Daughters 26th Birthday. Great ambiance, wonderful service and amazing food!!
The menu is absolutely out of this world. The view is amazing. I would highly recommend for lunch or romantic evening.
I have had many wonderful dinners at Gray Monk, however this visit was not as wonderful. We were a party of 8 for 7:30, so understandably a large party and one of the latest booking times. When we ordered our cheese board as an appetizer, our waitress set it down at our table and walked away. I have ordered this item before (and love it), but knew she was supposed to explain the different cheeses, and what was on the board.. I also found we waited a long time for our main course, and second bottle of wine. It was getting quite dark by the time we got our dinner, so I found it very difficult to even see my meal, (Some lighting would have been helpful). I ordered the vegetarian trio with a side of grilled chicken breast (I'm not vegetarian, but love vegan dishes).. Well my chicken breast tasted so fishy, like it was grilled in the same pan my cousin's sable fish was, so it was awful. Also I was very disappointed with the vegetarian trio, the flavours did not blend well together, and again I was disappointed. I hope my next visit will be more enjoyable, and will definitely reserve an earlier time spot.
