One of the most beautiful patios anywhere. Gray Monk has some of the best wine served in the Okanagan Valley. Not only do you have all this you also will dine on delicious food presented and served in style. Imagine you're on the French Rivera or on an exotic shore and all in Canadian dollars. We go every time we're in town. A gorgeous treat.

Gray Monk is a bit of a drive from Kelowna, but well worth it!! The view from the outdoor patio is lovely. We had an 8;00pm sitting and this was perfect for enjoying the setting sun. The food was well presented with flavors that melded together beautifully. Started with the Veggie Charcuterie, the mushroom pate was to die for. Had the special of the day which was perfectly cooked halibut with a tiger prawn, arugula risotto and fresh summer veggies on top of a carrot purée. Finished the meal with the trio of desserts. The creme Bruce and chocolate pate were scrumptious. Had a bootleg of their Pinot noir it was a lovely complement to dinner. My husband thought that it was the best meal we had since branching at the Burg Al Arab in Dubai. That is very high praise.

Music was wonderful, food was great and reasonable. Wines and desserts were fantastic! It was 32 degrees on the patio so some airflow would have been nice, and the glass railing could have used a little polish. Definitely going back.

Nice but overpriced, especially when compared to other winery/restaurants in lake country. Never one mention of us being there for a special occasion, and nothing done to acknowledge our 10 year anniversary. Will certainly go elsewhere next time to celebrate a special occasion. Food was cooked well, and flavors were nice. Better all around at Ex Nihilio and The Chase Wines for service for SURE.

The view is spectacular, and we really enjoyed the sunset over the water and mountains.
We had two gluten free /celiac diners, and there was a mixup with one meal, possible contamination and wrong side served with another.
They gave us a complimentary dessert to compensate, but it would have been more appropriate to refund that meal, as the plate was not gluten free.
The menu was good but not outstanding considering the price. Two of us had the duck, one the vegetarian plate.
The wine was good, we had the Pinot and the Chardonnay. We were too late for wine tasting, and they would not allow my daughter to taste the Pinot and chard before we decided on a bottle. Other wineries freely accommodate that, so lost points with us.

We have been celebrating birthdays and taking out of town guests to the Grapevine for a number of years. We look forward every year to coming back and it never disappoints. Great food, interesting menu, wonderful view and outstanding service. We enjoy pairing with Grey Monk wines...one of our favorite wineries.

We were able to have a memorable visit with our two adult grandchildren who are both off to new ventures in their lives. We have no idea when we'll see them again. We also celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary (thank you for the lovely dessert) and remembered our wonderful 50th celebration that was also held at Grey Monk Winery. It is just a lovely place to be with family and friends and I look forward to next time.

Excellent food and service but it really feels like you are in your Grandma's living room. The ambiance is definitely lacking, especially when paying $35-$40 for an entree. The wine is great but it really lacks sophistication. Other than that, the food is fantastic!

It was unfortunate that the day was so cold which made you just want to get through lunch and get on your way. Because it was a Saturday on the long weekend the service took long than expected which on a cold day seemed like a long time.

We visited Grapevine for an evening with another couple who live in the area. Our meals were excellent, however, there was a mix up with the delivery of our meals which resulted in a fairly lengthy delay for one of us. The waitress had been very pleasant taking our orders and was obviously embarrassed by the incident. We were somewhat disappointed but did not make a major issue of the problem. In the end we had a very enjoyable visit and were extremely satisfied with their apology and compensation for the error. We would definitely recommend Grapevine to our friends and will return when we visit Kelowna in the future.

Came here for a birthday celebration, left disappointed. Extremely expensive for what you are getting. Food was bland, extremely small portions, and it looked like no care or attention was put into the presentation - everything was just kind of thrown onto the plate. I came with high expectations after what I had heard but we won't be back. Can definitely get much better quality for less $ elsewhere in the Okanagan.

That being said, the service was very good and the view is exceptional.

Food was way over priced for you got. And in fact was a complete joke that they charge what they charge for what you get. Meal was more in line with what you would except from a chain restaurant or even worse. Keg has far superior steak. Food lacked flavor and any innovation. Chef needs to go back to cooking school. When you read the menu it gives you high hopes but the presentation and flavor truly dissapoint. The view and service were the only redeeming qualities. Table and chairs were cheap as was their whole decor. They need to really step up their game to compete with the many amazing restaurants in the area. Would not recommend and would never go back even if someone else was paying for dinner. Felt like a dinning hall at a seniors Centre. Very disappointed. Appies, entrées and dessert all sucked for lack of a better word. Save your money and go down the street to Block One which is far superior on every level.
