Grapevine Restaurant and Patio at Gray Monk Estate Winery Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
