It has been a couple of seasons since we last enjoyed a meal at Liquidity so we thought it was time to return. We ordered a couple of daily special items as well as a couple of regular menu items - all were tremendous. I was particularly impressed with the non-meat option on the main lunch menu, please keep the Stewed Grains around all season! We'll be back soon...

One of the best dining experiences in the Okanagan.
Matt Martin is one of the most talented chefs in the region. Creating some of the most unique and regional representative dishes out there. The tasting menu is worth every penny, I've never experienced so many flavours and textures in one meal.
Highly recommended the juice pairing.
Worthy of every accolade that rolls his way.

Much swagger

This is one of our favourite restaurants/patio in the Okanagan. The food is terrific both in taste, presentation and amount. Just right. The birds were a little noisy though, lol.

This was our 2nd experience at Liquidity and I must say it is a great gem of a dining experience. The only reason for not a full 5 stars was unfortunately the desserts were anticlimactic. The starters and mains were exceptional and presentation was above and beyond. Unbelievable view of the vineyards and servers were fun and extremely informative about the food. Nice to see as this is somewhat a dying art. Wines were wonderful. Go and experience this bistro!!

I would recommend it ONLY for the ambience and view. I'd like to potentially try something on the lunch menu, which may be better. Of the four of us, with a variety of dishes, the only delicious meal was the chicken. The short rib was tough, and unimaginative. The plate was brown on brown. The black cod was a very small piece, which may have been good as it has a distinctly "fishy" smell, which we know indicates it isn't as fresh as it should be. The view, and our server were the only aspects we really enjoyed.

VERY limited options for gluten free/celiac.
I chose the seafood benny as it was recommended however it just tasted like eggs on a potato pancake. If there was seafood in the potato which was suppose to be, I did not see or taste it.
LOVE the view and service was good, however will not be back again unless menu is more inclusive.

We have been to Liquidity several times. The food is good, service fine. We were very disappointed this time as we forgot to show our BCAA card and before leaving the restaurant went back and asked for our discount. They would not honor it; they said the transaction was complete. So disappointed that they would not void the transaction and rerun.

We had the distinct pleasure to be the first people to enjoy Liquidity’s newly created Tasting Menu. Each of the courses was a culinary experience nearly beyond words. Chef Matt’s creativity is matched by the respect and love he shows for his locally sourced ingredients. Textures, flavours, layering and unbelievable presentation... which were paired perfectly with wines from Liquidity — it was one of the best meals we have ever had.

The food was amazing, had the braised beef hash from the brunch selection, it was awesome. Others had the soup and sandwich of the day, they thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend this place to everyone who wants to experience unique food with fantastic flavours. Can’t wait for next season to see what the chef creates.

Although we learned of Liquidity the good 'old fashioned way' - by word of mouth - and had high expectations based on the recommendations, we were blown away. It is an absolute hidden gem with extraordinary cuisine, great staff and delicious wines and there is little question why it has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Restaurants. And to top off the experience it was very affordable. If the weather permits, and it usually does in the South Okanagan, ask for an outside patio table; you will enjoy the most extraordinary view of the South Okanagan looking south over toward Noble Winery and Blue Mountain, set above Vaseux Lake. Liquidity is special and memorable in every respect.

Great menu, great service, great flavours, very good wine.
Really enjoyed our lunch, sandwich of the day was an amazing wagyu burger. Shellfish dish had such wonderful flavours and we ordered some of the delicious house made sourdough. Service was really great, casual but on point with all the necessary details. Kevin our server was so informative about the food, ingredients and the area. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend.

The food and wine were wonderful and the staff was very knowledgeable about allergies. The setting is beautiful with wonderful scenic views. The only problem was the noise level. The tasting bar was busy and most tables were occupied. It was actually difficult to have a conversation because the noise reverberated from the bare walls. Hopefully some sort of noise absorption could be implemented.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on my evening at Liquidity. Everything was very acceptable with one exception... the portion of Black Cod was quite small. The presentation was exceptional but I would have added a bit of Colour eg nasturtiums to give the plate a bit of pop. Delicious tastes perfect ambience and most attentive staff. Thank you for a most exquisite night.

Overall it seemed to me and to my dinner guests that Liquidity was trying too hard. I appreciate the attempt at cutting edge food preparation (smoked hay, pumpkin 4 different ways, and sunflower ice cream etc).
But it was done without joy and a certain amount of self righteousness. ( All of the chips made from
" kitchen scraps"....they tasted like it).
Also the price point was a bit high...for that money I would have thought i got the whole pigeon.
Finally the lighting in the room felt like a cafeteria. We asked that it be turned down and they obliged but pot lighting is not fine dining.

Amazing food, service, wine and location.
One of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. Food was absolutely stunning. Beautiful, flavourful and impeccably prepared. For the quality of the food the price was on par with other top tier restaurants. Service was topnotch but not uptight, very friendly server named Cara and lovely restaurant owner. We were made to feel very welcome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend.

Totally disappointed. The new menu was pretentious and left us thinking about what to grab to eat on the way back to our hotel. There were only two other tables seated in the restaurant yet we waited an inordinate amount of time to be served at every turn. We visit the Okanagan every year, but will be giving Liquidity a miss moving forward.
