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 oneof-
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 only available May 1st - Oct 1st (warmer months) due to weather.

WOW!! Just the best meal. Happy hour and we were basking right in the sun. Alex was absolutely DEVINE. So sweet and knowledgeable and incredible. Positively outstanding experience. The scallops with the pork belly is easily one of the very best appies I’ve ever had! Thank you and see you next time.

we celebrated my husband Birthday with some very dear close friends and received excellent service from Jenny Christy and Mark Gilmore. All the servers are trained professionals and it is a delight to be at their table. They take pride in welcoming you, making you feel comfortable and as ' so called return customers', it is always a treat to be greeted with a radiant smile. The outside patio is perfect for our most recent situation. we can't say enough to our friends about the quality of food, beverages and last but certainly not least the great service of Jenny, Mandie and Mark and the rest of the crew! We can't wait to come back...soon

Wife’s birthday. Three of us for dinner. Second time at 50th Parallel. Service was excellent as was the food - prepared and presented perfectly. Charcuterie and cheese board and selection of breads to start were tasty - lovely selection of cheeses and accompanying meats, spreads and mustard. Entrees were amazing and the one dessert was enjoyed.

Easter brunch on the patio! It was lovely on the patio and of course the food was absolutely delicious and the wine outstanding. So glad we were able to go to the patio during Covid restrictions, made the day even more special.

2 of us ordered the crab and avocado eggs benny and it was very cold. I understand the crab and avocado are cold items, but when we ordered extra hollandaise it came cold as well. I did enjoy the salad and potato cake that came with it.

We went to Block One for Easter brunch and despite all the restrictions, they did not disappoint. We have a nice safe table by a heater on the patio and were nice and warm. The food was very good and I had the crab, avocado benedict and my wife had the fried chicken with everything perfectly cooked and served hot (can be a challenge on a patio).
We appreciate Block One's and other local restaurants ability to pivot and respond in these challenging times. Being able to go out to eat and feel safe is important these days.

Didn’t care for the burger I had, which was the same comment for two other people who had the same burger.

Menu was reduced which was something I didn’t expect.

Overall, didn’t feel the price matched the quality of food and service.

But the passion fruit dessert was fun and delicious

Service was absolutely amazing. Valentines was such a great dinner we had to come back. Sadly or food was less than satisfactory the second time around. The mushroom Capaletti was sounding great after the amazing gnocchi we had on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately we missed the Crusted Sweetbreads at the end of the menu item as part of the dish. They were awful, the texture was poor and the taste off putting. Google was able to describe what I was eating, I could not. What totally saved the day was the grace of our server Jenny who was fabulous. When she asked how are meal was, we told her honestly that it was not at all to our liking. She immediately offered to let us order something else off of the menu and very kindly did not charge us for the uneaten items. Based solely on service we will likely try it again, I understand the menu is changing.

It was great that the winery was open for food service. Our waiter was very friendly and all staff adhered to all covid protocols.

I think the experience was especially pleasant because we were seated at a corner table, in a sunny warm inviting location in the restaurant.

Food and service were good. I found the price of wine to be extremely high for a winery. There is an almost 100% mark up on wine so something that sells for $35 in the wine shop is being sold for $63 in the restaurant. I probably wouldn't return for this reason.
