Old Vines Restaurant is a meeting place of fresh local ingredients. Our selection of dishes enhance the light, fresh and fruitful, rich style of Quails' Gate wines. Our menu is constantly evolving as a reflection of our focus to serve the best and freshest the valley's local artisans and west coast markets can provide. We are dedicated to providing you with a beautiful setting and the ultimate food and wine experience in the Okanagan Valley. The Province (January 2007) Best places to un-wine. "Its fairytale pretty indoor/outdoor dining room among the vineyards is aptly named Old Vines Patio. Dinner here as the sun sets over the lake is a treat for the eyes and the palate." The New York Times (October 2006) - "Beyond our tables, the panorama of the lakefront, watercraft wake lines and row upon row of grapevines, with mountains in the distance, was mesmerizing." Wine Spectator (July 2004)- "One of the four best places to dine in the Okanagan."

Very nice landscape and building . Menus given out smelled
like they were cleaned with a sour towel . Food was fair . Was expecting more considering the reviews and the price .

I love taking out of town guests here. My last visit was with a friend for a 7:30 dinner. We only ordered soup salad and shared a plate of scallops. The restaurant was not busy but it seemed that our easy meal took far too long... over 2 hours. Food was excellent but I think the timing was far too long, especially when we weren’t sipping wine.

This place is absolutely beautiful with the surrounding vineyard and the lake beyond. The room decor is very nice. The wait staff were there to help. However, out of the 4 meals only one was really good, the other 3 were acceptable. We found that the price was high compared to the value received.
However. this would be a great meeting place on the patio in the summer to enjoy a glass of wine.

The food was amazing and they had perfect pairings of wine to go with everything, however I would definitely suggest taking a tour and having a tasting before you go for lunch or supper to save yourself from needing to get the wine 👌

We had such an amazing 10 year anniversary supper here. I have celiac disease and the options and kitchen knowledge were great. The GF bread prepared in house was phenomenal. Our whole meal was incredibly delicious and we had such a great experience. I was so blown away at the great food, but the wine was also pretty amazing:)

We had the Thanksgiving menu, which was quite disappointing. We had 4 dishes, 2 were awful with no balance and and overloaded sweetness in the main dishes and 2 were ok. The wine parings weren’t great. Very expensive for what it was.

Nice place for a lunch with friends. But I wish restaurants would list all the major ingredients on the menu - It’s very annoying to find your lunch filled with food you detest!

Great setting. Food was great. Wine was pricey. It seemed strange we had to settle up with the bar before going to the dining room.

We had a superb lunch: tomato risotto and a braised rabbit with gnocchi. The accompanying wines (all Quail's Gate, naturally) were very good and we really liked the Reserve Chardonnay and the Optima. The view is also magnificent.

Lovely ambiance and relaxed atmosphere. Staff friendly but not overbearing. Food was OK but missed fresh vegetables-none served with any of the mains at our table and sides did not look that appealing either. I had scallops and I actually tipped my plate while I ate to allow all the oil to run to one side. Perhaps the chef needs to update and appreciate the way people like to eat in a more healthy way these days. (I am 68!) So the atmosphere was so great and we loved all the seafood choices but suggest using less unhealthy fats and using more vegetables.

Fantastic dinner, ambiance was lovely but very noisy in the dining room . Waiter was attentive but very loud likely due to the noise level in the room.
We definitely would recommend.

Food was outstanding. Service was good and time to bring the food was the worst part. It took almost two hours to bring the dishes- we had to rush. It need some inprovenent due to the fact that most people that comes for lunch on weekdays had others things to do after.

Everything was perfect. The wine was amazing (Old Vines Foch, my favourite red), the Scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious as well as everything else on my plate. Our waiter, Mason, was very professional and polite and we were well taken care of. A great place for fine dining in a comfortable setting. I'll be back whenever I visit Kelowna!

Went to the restaurant as part of a Sister/Mother/Daughter weekend . We were from out of town and didn't know what to expect. The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate those of us in the group with a gluten/dairy/egg allergy. Would highly recommend for a fabulous meal out!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Quails Gate earlier this week.

Having not dined here previously, we were very pleased with every aspect of our evening. From how we were greeted,the ambience, every team member tending to us and of course, the food and wine!

Our special evening was truly spectacular!

We look forward to returning soon!

A lovely evening shared with family. Service was exceptional as was the dining experience.
Service at the bar as we waited for our table was a little slow but did not detour from the evening.
