About Quails' Gate Estate Winery - Old Vines Restaurant

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.

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."

I saw this restaurant on OpenTable and it looked like one I wanted to go to. Initially I couldn’t get in at a time I wanted but then checked again and found a 5:45 timeslot. The service staff was excellent. They were friendly, knowledgeable and made great recommendations. The wines were superb. I highly recommend the Bordeaux blend. It paired well with the ribeye. I will be back!

Arrived early for my reservation time and was proptly seated. Ambiance is very nice & ofcourse their wines are available for dinner. Wine prices are NOT the same as they are 30’ away in their tasting room, which I found perturbing.
Pairings are suggested with menu items, on the menu. I had the best ‘out’ meal there in memory! The Scallops on rissoto (special or feature item) was exceptionally flavourful and the scallops were cooked perfectly, opposed to little rubber pucks served elsewhere. My wife had a menu ‘staple’ which was the Cornish Game Hen. Again, many flavours that worked harmoniously to provide a fabulous taste experience!
Overall, an exceptional meal & dining experience.
Not cheap but like anything in life, you get what you pay for.
We will positively return to Quails Gate.

Had a wonderful dinner at Old Vines the day before Valentines. The food, wine and ambience were stellar! Beyond that the service made our night a home run. Allanah was an attentive but not cloying server with great suggestions. Can’t wait to return!

I can’t imagine spending my anniversary dinner in a better place. The whole experience was so lovely. The restaurant acknowledged it was our anniversary. One thing flowed into the next so nicely. Never felt like we were waiting. An evening I will never forget. I will definitely be recommending this restaurant in the future.

We have eaten here numerous times for family dinners. This time we brought a guest from Holland. He was so impressed with the wines and service not to mention the food. He said it ranked up there with one of his best dining experiences. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the food and wines and helped make it a great dining experience! We will be back!

We had an amazing experience on our date night at Old Vines. The wine was spectacular our server brought us a comparable to see the difference and it was lovely to try both. Our server was so friendly and helpful, she had a grace about her that was very refreshing. We enjoyed the food it was very flavourful and fresh, the atmosphere was serene and we have nothing but great things to say! Will definitely be coming back and requesting our friends and family to join!

The wine pairing with our meal was fantastic. We had the Sunday Roast with great expectations but food was just mediocre. However $100/4people is still a good deal for somewhat fancy night without breaking the bank.

Our dining experience at Quails Gate was amazing. We were able to sit by the fireplace, which was a treat. Our waiter, Daniello was pleasant, funny, professional, and added to the experience. The wine was good (I prefer reds though, and my friend picked a white). The food was phenomenal. We went for the Dine Around menu. We tried many of the options, and they all tasted amazing. I was disappointed the scallops only came with two though. Other than that, the portions were fair, and everything was good.

 (Tampa)·Dined on January 27, 2018

Excellent service from the moment we got there. Everything on time and flowed perfectly from drinks to desert.
Only complaint was my rib eye was just a ball of gristle and fat. Sent it back with one of the bussers and the waiter never bothered to come over and apologize with AMPLE opportunity. Second cut I was served was markably better but still a fair bit of gristle and tendon. Nonetheless still tipped well because the overall experience was great. Second time at this restaurant and very happy with both. We will be back!
Male server with tattoos and earings just needs to know when to apologize to a guest that CLEARLY isn’t there to complain. Thanks again

I think this is the best restaurant in Kelowna. I've tried to find one better, and have failed, and now this restaurant is my automatic choice whenever I have a special dinner planned, or, even if I just want to go out for a regular dinner outing. The food and wine is always superb and the service and facilities are as well.

Actually a very good restaurant. We enjoyed the food and the wine. The only problem we had was not really the restaurants fault. There was a very noisy and vulgar table a few tables away. After our great meal we moved over to the bar and the manager gave us free wine for the trouble. Very well done.

I enjoyed my experience for the brunch at Quails' Gate, the food was excellent and the ambiance was good. However, the sparkling wine that was recommended on the menu for our specific meal was not available and the replacement was almost doubled the price. I think that if you offer specific pairings of wine with a meal you should have that wine available! I also think that with brunch menu, the coffee should be included in the price of the meal and not an extra!!!
