Winery
The name BLOCK ONE represents the first vineyard planted in 2009 and is very special to
Proprietors Sheri-Lee and Curtis. “It taught us to be farmers; to be ONE with the land. There are things we will never experience again. That vineyard block represents the past – the starting point, getting our
hands dirty, all the ‘firsts’ of our business”. BLOCK ONE represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. You will be amazed by the outdoor seating area of the restaurant. Seating is covered by an engineering wonder in a one-of-a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the world's architectural community. The restaurant moves to an equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the winter months.

All groups of 6 and larger are subject to an auto-gratuity of 20%. Moving into fall and winter, we no longer have a dog friendly table available.

    First time I’ve been in winter. Cold, cavernous room with poor ambiance. Food and service were good but I’ll only return in summer when the patio is open.

    The overall experience was great, our table was ready when we walked in, we were treated quickly and our server was very attentive. The food was extremely flavourful and portions were appropriate for the value. Favourites at our table - duck fat yam fries, scallops, squash rings with the duck and giant fries with the steak. The wine pairings worked well with each dish. And my favourite was the carrot cake! Would gladly come back. If I was to have one critique, the food seemed to take a while, but I’m not sure what the turnover looked like before we go there… it could simply be there were a bunch of orders that went in all at once. I would highly recommend Block One

    Duck wings were too spicy, although we were well looked after by the manager! Have had much better desert selections in the past. Visited 50th Parallel several times during Covid when open. Had some desert creations that were out of this world!! Our waitress was very nice, but my partner did not appreciate the amount of cleavage displayed in a restaurant of your caliber. Overall enjoyed our experience and appreciated the attention provided by the manager

    This was a nice dinner out for my husbands 70th Birthday, on Oct 27th….We frequent Block One as we are right around the corner at Predator Ridge. The service is always outstanding, the food exceptional and great wines! The restaurant has a great fun Vibe during the summer months and a warm and cozy vibe on winter evenings… love love love this restaurant. They try very hard and they hit every mark. Their staff are empowered to make decisions, which tells me they must have a reasonably good management team to work with. At any rate our little night out for my husbands birthday was a 10 out of 10. Thank you ❤️.

    I heard great things about BLOCK ONE and had tried before to get reservations and it was booked out which speaks to its popularity. And we were still impressed with the highest of expectations - great atmosphere sitting amidst the wine barrels, excellent service and the food truly was outstanding capped off with a nice bottle of wine. I would highly recommend and will return again and take our visitors from out of town.

    The Duck Confit is amazing when it is available. The scallops are wonderful. They used to be even better when they were nested in corn foam. The surroundings are innovative now that the restaurant is inside for the winter. Cozy. Smells nice. Friendly people.

    It was AMAZING as usual, best food in the Valley, we drive an hour to dine. We were in the outdoor dining area and our only complaint, although very cozy…..the heaters were too hot for our height of table and the walls seemed to echo the sound as it was extremely loud in there for the amount of tables. We were too busy devouring our food to have table conversation. Nothing we couldn’t get through and worth every minute. Lovely Pinot Nior and Halibut is a MUST!!

    Was there for lunch. Cheese pizza was delicious. Wagyu burger could have used the addition of a brighter flavour. There was also an unusual bitterness to it. Poke bowl was tasty. Prices high for the taste of the food. Service was terrific.

    We love Block One. If it was closer to where we live we would be there weekly. Our server was a blast (Jen). Birthday dinner for my daughter who is a steakaholic and she did not go away disappointed with the Bone in Rib Eye. Highly recommend the place.

    Thanksgiving. Wish there had been some turkey and pumpkin as an option. This was our second visit to Parallel 50 and both times I was cold, with cold air blowing on me. Food is excellent and beautifully presented. Servers have been superb. OpenTable is a great feature. Nice to get a reminder and easy to modify the reservation.

    Wow! What can I say? Am I allowed to call this place the French Laundry of the Okanagan? My wife and I took her 12-year-old twins for what was essentially our Thanksgiving dinner. One of our kids can sometimes be accused of being fussy. We ordered a number of small plates and shareable dishes. And the evening ended up being like a tasting menu of which I’m an enormous fan. We had a gorgeous Pinot Gris with the menu and I walked out with a lovely Pinot Noir in my hand. The service team was first rate. We ordered each of the four desserts and they were all masterpieces.
