BLOCK ONE Restaurant at 50th Parallel Winery
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 also
represents the future as this vineyard block now produces some of the
estate’s finest fruit for our international award-winning wines. Guests
will be amazed by the seating area for the outdoor portion of the
restaurant. You are covered by an engineering wonder above in a one-of-
a-kind cantilever that is already drawing attention in the worlds
architectural community. The year-round restaurant moves to an
equally impressive indoor space during inclement days and in the

Duck Wings 🦆 🤤 red wine great service. Highly recommend
Service, food, wine and ambiance was all five star. Highly recommend Block One. I can’t wait to go back!
We went to celebrate my wife's birthday and the menu was a little small in terms of selection which are getting used to with COVID and restaurants adjusting. The service was outstanding and our server was attentive without being intrusive and made great good recommendations on both wine and entrees. The food (Arctic char and lamb) was well prepared, portions were reasonable, however we are still adjusting to the new price points brought on by COVID as well. Overall an enjoyable evening in a wonderful setting.
Great restaurant. Amazing wine!!! Excellent service.
Jenny was great as usual
Great food, great service, and a great view. Highly recommended!
Always fantastic food & great experience. Sam is an exceptional waitress
The food was amazing.
The service was also excellent. Five stars all the way.
I would highly recommend Block One Restaurant.
Great food. Service was excellent. I had a gift card that needed to be picked up. I sent an email asking what I needed to do and received a prompt response telling me exactly what I needed to do. From the moment we arrived to when we left we felt very welcome. When I used the gift card to pay, I messed things up. Our server and the young man at the Bar worked together and solved my mistake and made me feel as if it was absolutely no problem at all. Thank you for a great experience.
Phenomenal experience and food! Highly recommend.
We were here on our honeymoon and our lovey server Heather brought us a glass of their sparkling wine. Just perfect! Thank you!
Beautiful Restaurant, Amazing Ambiance and Food. Excellent Service
Had an excellent lunch in a terrific setting!
What an amazing view! Thank you Sam for the awesome service
Very nice venue. Interesting menu and very good food. Service very rushed. Rushed to order - which we did, mistakenly. Even after starting with a salad, our main dihes were served about 35 minutes after our arrival. Accordingly, this was not a relaxed or optimally enjoyed dining experience.
The food was very good …the mains of Monkfish, Arctic Char and Lamb sirloin were delicious and the Truffle fries and Scallops were super but didn’t rate 5 stars because there were a couple of misses. The crab cakes were too soft/mushy with no crispy outside… and the banana chocolate dessert was uninspiring with a bottom crust layer that you couldn’t cut with a fork and barely with a knife.
The girl who served us was lovely!
The Arctic char was amazing and the ribeye delightful as well.
We had a lovely lunch at BLOCK ONE and will come again.
Block One is a very special place to enjoy a meal. The setting is spectacular and the ambiance and decor is very bold and visionary! The food is always so tasty and we love the wide selection of foods which include comfort foods to delectable specialties! Always a delight of the senses. Thanks Block One a5 the 50th Parallel. 👍🏻🇨🇦🍾 Recommend!
The staff was excellent I
They accommodated our request for a different table quickly and smoothly
Our meals were amazing as usual.
other than some very woody vegetables that couldn’t be eaten.
We will be back
Love this place! Excellent service and food. Please bring back the cheesecake 😊
Love the food, our server was a PRO, not intrusive at all, altho i prefer the actual inside restaurant, this was perfect for an early dinner!
We had a lovely afternoon with wine tasting and lunch. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic wine and food was outstanding
Bit of a wait for the food
Server was spectacular
Never disappoints. Our server Jenny is as amazing as the food. Cocktails, appetizers, mains and dessert - all of the picture perfect - complex flavors, but not stuffy or braggy. They hit just the right note.
I had the chicken -⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My daughter had the tofu dish -⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟
Cheese platter- ⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟

Thank you for great experience we all enjoyed a fun day with great food and wine
Amazing service! Fabulous wine and the food was such a great experience. I feel sorry for my mouth as I feel nothing else will come close.
Food was incredible, our server Jenny was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. It was a lovely experience.
Delicious food, beautiful space, with scenic views of Okanagan Centre. Thank you
Superb Restaurant within the vines. Beautiful view and delicious happy hour!
Very nice winery and restaurant. Lovely place to have lunch
Best meal we’ve had while here. All four of us ordered different entrees and we all loved them (and each other’s)!
Very good quality and service
Sam was superb. Straight up best server in the Okanagan. Refreshing, knowledgeable, and efficient not only with our table but those around us.
MacKenzie was amazing! My family is visiting from Ontario and had a great time
We had reservations but place was mostly empty. We were placed in back corner (probably should have said something at that point). Heard dogs barking outside...and wouldn't you know it they seated the folks with the dogs right next to us. The waitress should have been proactive and seated the dogs anywhere else in the restaurant. Or perhaps not allow dogs at all in what is aspiring to be an upscale restaurant. We asked to be moved however the experience had already ruined a rather costly outing for us.
Note this is a small restaurant located in a tent with little or no lake view.. Also seemed pricey for what you got.
Goodbye for a coworker
50th Parallel is a casual dining experience with high end food. I am looking forward to going back.
A wonderful surprise, as we drove through Lake country.
Both Pizzas are delicious! (Really loved the Forager) Perfectly paired with the 2020 Pinot Rose. Service was excellent. Prepare yourself for the 100% markup on the wine compared to off sale pricing
