BLOCK ONE Restaurant at 50th Parallel Winery

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 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
winter months.

Please note that our one pet-friendly table is not available at this time. We do have a space to put your pooch outside of the restaurant floor!

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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
