At Home Block Restaurant, we embrace the bounty of the Okanagan while our name pays homage to the Home Block Vineyard which surrounds us. Our building is crafted from fieldstone and 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood and our cuisine draws on those elemental roots. We integrate natural cooking methods like our wood-fired grill fueled by timber from local orchards and seasoned barrel staves. The result is honest, confident, and approachable food that unites flawlessly with CedarCreek wine.

5 course premium wine pairing meal is overrated… we should have been able to choose our courses from a couple of choices. Relative to other experiences this was sub-par on the food. Wine is always great at Cedar Creek.

Home Block at CedarCreek Estate Winery
Responded a day ago

Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the menu options on your 5 course meal, chef gets feedback from every table for the 5 course to cater them to their dietary needs and likes specifically; he curates a different menu for each table, this is normally very successful. Apologies you did not enjoy your meal. We appreciate you taking the time to write in to share and look forward to seeing you again.

You will not be disappointed. Worth every penny. This is one of the best restaurants that I have been to in a long time. Ambience to severs top notch. You can easily spend the same amount in a popular chain restaurant but this is so much more and love to support locally as much as I can. This was my 2nd time in 7 months and I will be back sooner than later.

My boyfriend did not get asked how he would like his steak and a said it did not taste the best as it was very fatty. My pasta was good however it stated it was a bolognese and it had what looked and taste to be pork in it as well. Also, the menu was a bit deceiving as we thought it was two curses and wine for 60 however some meals like the steak were 10 dollars extra and in no where in the menu did it indicate that. Love the environment and service was good, just wasn’t too impressed with the food.

Home Block at CedarCreek Estate Winery
Responded on October 20, 2021

Thank you for the feedback Hayley I will certainly pass on your comments on food to chef. The additional priced items have an 'add $10' beside their title on the menu to indicate the price, perhaps we need to think of a clearer way to list that to avoid confusion for guests in future. Thank you for bringing these details to our attention to look into, we appreciate you taking the time to write in. I hope that you have a lovely weekend.

Amazing setting. Great wine. Not sure why restaurant struggles to find alternatives to crackers and bread for gluten free and celiac clients. The food creativity of the chef's in creating new dishes and combinations is typically exceptional. They must be able to dream up some reasonable alternative. With all the options out there and with some many clients now asking for alternatives, you would hope that this would be a priority...and it could help to set the restaurant apart, further, from others in the market.
As for service, the staff were pleasant but there seems to be less attention to detail. Food used to be delivered to the table with an explanation of the chef's creation. That didn't happen. We watched as a patron's jacket fell on the floor, from their chair, and a staff member made the effort to walk around it. She didn't make the effort to pick it up for the patron. My wife actually had to get up and get it for the individual.
Just an FYI to help improve what was and what could again be a great culinary venue.

This is our favorite spot in town unfortunately Saturday was not good. Two of us had the skate wing and it was not good. We barely touched it. Not a good dish for the prices and quality of the restaurant. The other issue was we had an outdoor table at the far south end and it was full of flies. We were the only table with flies and we were chasing them the entire time. It was gross. It made for not a great ambiance overall. Service was great, appetizers and wine were are good. Expensive meal for eating with a ton of flies and a poor fish dish. I would take the Skate wing off the menu. We have recommended Home Block to a lot of people. Hoping when we come back it is better so we can get back to recommending again.

Responded on October 12, 2021

Thank you for the valuable feedback Tbone, I will pass the skate comments on to chef. We appreciate you taking the time to write in and let us know. In the fall we do occasionally get flies outside, a hazard of being seated right in the organic vineyard but we also offer indoor seating for anyone who wishes to be clear of bugs, heat, etc and will happily move you in on the next occasion if that is your preference. We look forward to your next visit.

Beautiful patio and gracious service. That said, we had to ask a couple of times for salt and pepper and the meal was very under seasoned. Stand out on the three course menu was the pork belly which was excellent. Though it was a three course meal the ‘ wine pairings’ would have consisted of two 3 oz pours per person (!!) .. so we decided to pass and just order a bottle of wine for the two of us.

We asked to change to a table closer to the view ( and less brightly lit) which our server arranged for us without any hassle.

We would come back for the view and atmosphere..maybe less so for the food.
