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."

Unfortunately, the food was not constantly good. Starter soup was too garlicy, and falafels were definitely not their strong suit. The scallops and tenderloin though, were delicious. Prices were in line with other establishments trying to be upscale. They could use more variety in their menu. Otherwise, the ambience is nice, and the service was good.

Always love going to quails gate for dinner. But was definitely dissappointed this time when i brought my dad for his 65th birthday celebration. I asked if they gave him anything for his bday, a free drink or dessert, and the waiter said sorry no. Which was odd because we were there 2 other times in the summer for my mother in laws and mothers birthdays and they recieved a little free glass of ice wine. So it threw me off when he said no and i asked a second time and he offered to ask his manager and we just said don't worry about the hastle. So i paid my 150$ bill and it left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth after that. Otherwise everything else was great.

Our experience was outstanding! I booked using Open Table app. Then we had a slight time change for another commitment so I called the restaurant to confirm my reservation and they did have it. The gentleman I spoke to I think Jason was super helpful and genuinely tried to accommodate my request to move my reservation one hour earlier. They discussed this request and called me back saying they were able to move the reservation even though I know they were completely booked. Jason met me personally when we got there and saw to it that we were taken care of and that we had a lovely and outstanding experience.

A lovely evening celebrating with a friend. Attentive service from the hostess, the bartender and our wonderful server who was so professional and attentive in every detail. I enjoyed the Scallop main and my friend described her Ribeye as one of the best she had ever had "like butter". The Panna Cotta dessert was excellent and I am a huge fan of the Optima, so we enjoyed a glass. I love that Old Vines is in our neighbourhood - we are spoiled. Thank you for a great evening!

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!

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.
