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."

Everything was great. Made even better by our server, Matt. The four of us were treated to a nice table under a heater with god distance from others. Wines were suggested and hit the spot. Food light and tasty. Classy but friendly ambience. Matt was fun and helpful.
Recommended.

Quail's Gate was a great place to visit for lunch. The food was all amazing and the service was consistent and attentive. And, with the current COVID precautions, they were very attentive to all of them.

A great place to visit for lunch!

Beautiful property!
With all the build up about the food...i was not really that happy.
The charcuterie board was nice and the mussels were good but the lamb was very lacking and I ate very little of it...the waitress didn't seem to care. My friend had the pork 2 ways and needed water to swallow the very dry pieces.
The wines were lovely and we all purchased a few bottles.
I'll be skipping this winery on our next trip.

They allow spliting a glass of wine into two, so you can try more different types of wines without drinking too much. Good for two of us.

The food was underwhelming. My salmon had bones in it. They did remake it but the second time it was overcooked and the skin on the salmon was soggy. Service was great there and the ambience is amazing

It was our anniversary that day. Phenomenal view of the lake from their open picnic-sitting area started our evening followed by a lake-view table. Jennifer was so cheerful and hospitable starting us off with a great glass of dessert wine compliments of the house. Anina our server was equally delightful with bright cheery and timely service! Our meals were served hot and prepared to perfection which left our tummies happily filled! Overall, outstanding evening and will definitely return on our next trip back to the Kelowna area.

Very nice restaurant, lovely covered patio with an incredible view. Food was great, what you expect from a “fancy” restaurant. Quail’s Gate property is astounding. Fantastic views, really lovely landscaping and space. They have also done a great job at following COVID rules, tables are well spaced. Staff very friendly.

Birthday lunch, everything was superb. The suggested pairings, fresh oysters, sides and main courses were all top notch. The view was so lovely, it felt like dining by the Mediterranean... Service was first rate. Everything was worthy of the finest dining without any pretension and half the price of Vancouver dining.

Dinning at Quails Gate is a dull or ordinary experience. I’d say more nice things but I’m afraid I may limit my ability to find a reasonable reservation time for our next visit.

Service was horrific, waited an hour between courses didn’t eat until 8:00 and food brought out at different times for people at the table. Didn’t ask if we wanted more wine.

The lamb was horrible, do not waste your money on it. It was all fat, rich in sauce and a major disappointment.

Overall the only thing it had going for it was the view and location. I probably wouldn’t waste my time here for dinner where there are better options (Mt Boucherie).

Very disappointed

We've always enjoyed dining at Quails' Gate and have recommended it to quite a few people. However on this occasion one dish was very disappointing. The Mezze, Oysters and Charcuterie Board could not be faulted and were up to the standard we have come to expect. Unfortunately the saddle of lamb was first served raw, Gianni, the waiter took it back to the kitchen where it was cooked some more. It was returned in pieces and consisted mainly of fat which was inedible. Both the manager and waiter apologized several times offering me another main course which I declined and we were served an excellent complimentary dessert instead. Personally I would have preferred to pay for the dessert instead of the lamb and I'm not sure a free dessert makes up for the disapointment that I felt. The service from Gianni was excellent the surroundings beautiful and one poor dish will probably not sour our past or future visits.
