Quails' Gate Estate Winery - Old Vines Restaurant
Dinner: Daily 5:00pm
Quails Gate has always been one of my favourite restaurants. My boyfriend is a member of Chaine des Rotisseurs, the finest gastronomic society in the world and he felt the service, presentation, food quality and wine pairings were exceptional.
Always make a reservation and show up exactly on time.
They don't roll well with pop-ins or early arrivals. This has happened to me over and over and at different times and different seasons from the quiet, only a handful of people in the restaurant off season to their busy summer session. Doesn't seem to matter, the seating is almost always the worst part of the experience.
It's still worth the clunky arrival as the food is always good to great and the atmosphere is one of the best in the region.
I ordered the Atlantic Char I thought the fish tasted good but found the sauce over powering the fish. It also needed vegetables. They considered green onions as a vegetable; however the last time I made green onions as a the vegetable on a entree was never. My husband ordered the lamb chop & shoulder & it was over cooked. The wine was delicious
Beautiful lunch at Quail- views were amazing, food was great and service was friendly. I’ll be back! The wine with lunch was great so it was nice to be able to pop into the shop to buy a case....
As always our experience at Old Vines Restaurant was amazing. We visit once a year with our children and it is a favourite of theirs as well. The food, wine, service and ambiance never disappoint. A family tradition for us!
As always Old Vines was excellent. Never disappoints.
Our group had an incredible time at the Old Vines Restaurant, we went for a Birthday Lunch and were seated on the outdoor patio. The view is breathtaking, with Okanagan Lake, the Vineyard and flowers everywhere the eye can see. It's a beautiful place to be inside and outside, tasty food and great wine. We had oysters, muscles and a lovely squid salad with the recommended wine pairings. We will be back ; )
I have been to Quails Gate a handful of times before and wanted to bring a friend for his birthday. For as much as I talked it up I was very disappointed with our experience. The atmosphere was good, as it always is . The server suggested "beef carpaccio" for a starter and we also ordered oysters. The carpaccio was actually bison which tasted very gamey and they were missing half of the accompaniments for the pricey oysters. We ordered cocktails with a special request, they came well after our starters and weren't made correctly. The server had also taken away our menus after they brought the starters so at that point we were already a little turned off and decided to go elsewhere for dinner.
We were extremely disappointed in the food. My husband and friend had lamb that was raw which we showed to the waitress. I had a mushy, Arctic char with a bitter watercress risotto which was less than appealing.
The setting was perfect, the service very good but I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
All around amazing! Amazing service. Amazing food. Amazing view. Absolutely perfect!!
Bon Voyage Gathering of friends. Everything was excellent
There was ~15 min wait past our reservation time, but the receptionist & servers handled it well and offered us a couple alternatives. Putting ourselves in the shoe of the group before us, we probably wouldn’t have wanted to be rushed to leave anyways, so I would say their service was excellent. Food was good but not outstanding enough to be the price we paid (in my personal opinion), but the ambience made up for it. Overall a very good experience, definitely recommend!
Another memorable visit. This was our third. Staff is pleasant and well trained. View is spectacular. Food is always excellent. A "must" when visiting Kelowna.
Late Sunday lunch was good but not great. Restaurant was not busy but took a long time for service. Appies came at same time as meal. Coffees were cold, then when remade came long after dessert was as finished. Food was tasty but overall we weren’t thrilled with level of service
Excellent experience! First visit and it did not disappoint. Can not wait to go back!
It was fantastic. The food was spectacular. Good price for the quality and portions. I will be coming back here for sure.
Exceptional setting and view of Okanagan Lake. Food is varied and good. Servers, despite youth we well trained, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive.
Great food, amazing customer service and the views won’t disappoint.
Absolutely stunning location
We were a group of 6 and were seated on the outside , gorgeous views and amazing food , the fish was delicious
Best part was that the wine store had closed as it was past 8 pm but we still could order at retail price in the restaurant
I was in town for a quick business meeting and decided to take advantage of the mild evening with a gorgeous setting sun on the vineyards and lake. Outstanding meal and service.
We had some issues with the timing of things (long wait) but our server and the restaurant were most gracious in resolving this.
Old Vines Restaurant is one of our favorites. Staff is excellent, Nick was pleasant and we had enjoyable conversations with him. The chefs are accommodating with dietary issues. Food and wine pairing suggestions are outstanding
Great atmosphere and scenery but the food could have been better. We had two rib eyes that were over cooked. Then one of our salads had a worm or something in it wiggling around. No comp on the meal just a free glass of wine.
A lovely environment. Was on a weekend away with my husband and it was a great dinner. We were there late (9:15pm) so it was calm and quiet. We had a table looking out on the vineyard through the open patio doors and could hear the crickets chirping. Great service and delicious food!
Our visit to this restaurant was outstanding the food and service was above and beyond what we expected can't wait to visit again.
Our dinner was fabulous! First night out with my husband since we had our second baby in December. We were visiting from Calgary and my dad made the reso and watched the kids! Our table was perfect and our server made the night. She knew exactly what we needed and when to come tour table. Her name was Michelle(I think....travelled to Croatia last year). Thank you for a much needed night out! The food was incredible, incredible and the wine was perfect! We will be back!
We have come to quails gate many times and never been disappointed. The food is exquisite as the wine and the service
The service was fantastic. The food was very good, but not spectacular.
We are always pleased when we go to Quails Gate. Chef Marc cooked a fish that was superior. Our Server Kendal was attentive,friendly and our meals were exactly as ordered. All the staff from the moment we walked in until we finished were great. The view is spectacular. Thank you for a great experience.
Excellent as always. Looking forward to our annual anniversary dinner in a few weeks
We had done wine tastings here before on a previous trip and had looked at the restaurant but did not have time to stop. Friends were visiting from Ontario so we went back with them. Our patio table was lovely. All four of us had something different and the food was all good. I highly recommend the suggested wine pairings with whatever food order you have. They were spot on.
Awesome staff/service, wine education, fresh air patio, stunning view and farm to table fresh ingredients all made for an absolutely wonderful evening.
Server Jorden was terrific. We wanted to make the 1pm tour and he made a quick lunch happen so we could come back after and enjoy more of the fantastic food and wine. Thank you
This was our third visit to Old Vines Patio in two years, nothing has changed, spectacular view, food that has lived up to or surpassed our expectations every time, I had the Ling cod and have never had a better taste, cook and presentation. That goes far as we used to live on Vancouver Island, the wine is pretty great as well. Cheers Ervin O
Had the cornish game hen and was very good. Would have like more veggies with the meal, although gnash sp? Was included. Was enough for me, though. A few mosquitoes were about since the doors were open as it was a beautiful day they were not a big problem. Had to ask for bread to be served and there was not a lot for 4 people at the table.
My wife and I was there for our 37th wedding anniversary which we noted on our reservation but no one at your restaurant acknowledged this so why ask when booking.
Worst meal I have ever had at your restaurant. Ordered the lamb shank and in short it was the worst dish lacking flavor, over cooked to the point the meat was like something that was fall apart texture like pressure cooked stew meat. No taste and poor quality, very disappointing.
As a West Kelowna resident and returning customer this left us wondering what happened? This is not a dish you should serve to anyone and perhaps if you cannot serve it correctly you should take it off the menuat Quails Gate.
Can’t beat the view! The food was very good and the ambiance is terrific. Wait staff were all very attentive. It is expensive but if prepared for that, it is a great spot for a meal.
This was a wonderful way to end our long weekend! The service was amazing, Kelly, our server, was fantastic. The food was every bit delicious, as promised. I also highly recommend for Celiacs wanting a safe place to eat as they were very accommodating and went above and beyond. Beautiful setting, gorgeous view, with amazing photo opportunities. Thank you for the best meal we had all weekend!
We have dined at Quails Gate for a number of years and we find that the last 3-4 visits have been sub par
Service is lacking and the food is just alright
Not sure what is happening at the restaurant but it is quite obvious that things are not as refined
Beautiful spot but lacks the fine dining quality it use to have.
We shouldn’t be pouring our own champagne glasses and waiting for our plates to be cleared
Service was poor and slow and it was not even busy--we went for a late lunch at 2 pm.
Prices are good for winery area and food was good.
