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."

Most enjoyable. Music a little too loud upon arrival and was turned down later. One entree was lamb and the steak was tasty but quite chewy. Everything else was very nice .

Dinner at quails gate was wonderful. Everything was great with the exception of the atmosphere? Not even sure if that’s the word to use. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and super nice we found everything was missing that little bit of personalization. The winery was phenomenal. Super nice and engaging staff, maybe that’s what the dinner was missing. It was a little stiff . There was no extra conversation, no outgoing staff. A little disappointing for such a wonderful restaurant; the food was amazing, wine and views. Only thing missing was the personalization.

The Old Vines Restaurant never disappoints. The service was excellent - friendly and attentive without being overdone. The menu offered a good selection of choices without being huge, making it reasonably easy to decide. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. Everything, from appetizers to desert, lived up to expectations.
Nothing need be said about the wine list. The suggested pairings were well thought out. If not going with the suggestions, the full wine list had choices to please any palette.
A definite suggestion for special occasions, and an excellent choice when entertaining visitors to our valley.

Magical. We had a table on the outdoor patio, which has a beautiful view, on a glorious spring day. The server was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and suggested a very good wine to go with our meal. The food was inspired and delicious. A memorable day.

We had a wonderful night celebrating my mother’s birthday. I had made a request through open table prior to our arrival and everything was completed to perfection. They are on top of the small details and made my mom feel very special. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!

This was another business lunch that required a mix of business and to show off the local cuisine, wine and Okanagan valley. The service was perfect, the meals were excellent and despite not being a sunny day, our guests were thrilled with the views. Well done Stewart family!

We have eaten at Quail’s Gate on several occasions. As has been our experience in the past, the ambiance and the service was excellent, however this time the food was only ok. My husband had to send his steak back as it was severely over cooked, my mom’s salmon dish was over cooked, and my lamb dish was mediocre. We will be back, but hope the food will be better next time.

We always go to Old Vines Restaurant to celebrate special occasions. To be able to enjoy an amazing meal and a bottle of wine while overlooking vineyards and the lake is always special. The food and service is spectacular. I also like that we never feel rushed; we always have enough time in between courses and our experience is very relaxing. Thank you to Emily, our server, for making our Mothers Day even more memorable.

We had an amazing time ...the staff was very accommodating. We were able to get an earlier table ...not sure why OpenTable would only give us a reservation at 8:45pm .We had a table at 7 and the restaurant was 25% open all evening . The food was a 5 and the ambiance was a 5 ...great evening ...but you need to improve your reservation matrix :)

Set in the vineyard on the shore of lake Okanagan, you could not ask for more ambiance, in a word, spectacular! They have a team of great people there who are all anxious to please. The food was terrific and reasonably priced. I found $55.00 for a bottle of wine with a screw cap a bit unreasonable. I would return but would skip the wine.

Some outside construction noise (the patio is being extended). Austen is a great server. Food portions tasty but pretty slim for the price. We did the two course special for $30.00.

Any time that we are in the Okanagan we make a detour for a meal at Quails Gate - as always, the meal was great, the service was excellent and the view from the veranda was wonderful - and the wines paired nicely. A great meal experience

I really was extremely disappointed with the restaurant overall. Our server was very nice however, I made a note that is was friends's birthday and we were there during her lunch hour break and we sat down and the table who came a good 15 mons after us got their food well in advance the we did. I noticed the table had cooked salmon and we had the tuna bowl, so we must have been forgotten and there was nothing bright out for friend's birthday for desert.

I love your winery and have always recommended you restaurant so this was very disappointing experience. I will be back but I will be trying Block One at 50th Parallell before making the decision to return.

Bets wishes,
Valerie

I have had a better experience there. The steak was tough & stringy. No ask if I wanted my wine topped up, or another glass. In & out in 45 minutes... expensive fast food experience.

We had our 42nd Anniversary dinner there earlier this week, the food was very good, the server that waited on us was excellent, let you know what the features were with out reading from a iPad, very courteous, very familiar with the menu, the restaurant was not full so the noise levels were great, we could talk quietly and still hear each other that was great, we would recommend recommend this restaurant to anyone and definitely to our friends, the prices are a bit more but we felt was good value for service. We will be going again.
They are doing some renovations right now but does not interfere with the restaurant.
