OAK + CRU Social Kitchen and Wine Bar draws its inspiration from the bounty of the Okanagan Valley, which includes over 250 wineries and an abundance of local food producers and artisans. Located on the water and in the heart of downtown Kelowna, our guests can enjoy the energy and passion of a well-trained team while they venture on a culinary journey with spectacular views of Lake Okanagan.

Menu concepts are built on the unique and modern presentation of globally inspired cuisine with a farm to table twist. The 6,000 pound signature Fire Deck oven provides the anchor for the menu content. Every menu item will be inspiring and modern in craft, pairing well with the valley’s best vintages.

Service was awesome. I feel terrible that I didn’t get her name (brunette with her hair pulled back, owns a jeep, golfs), but she was friendly, professional, and very attentive. I believe it was the manager even that came over to quality check our food after the first few bites. Amazing gluten-free bread, too!

I was shocked at the prices on the menu. Halibut $29.00 with 2 small pieces of Halibut, wow! For that price I can go to an expensive winery with a great view and get a better meal than that.

Most of the food was ok with exception to the salmon which tasted like it came out of a box, not even edible, and the desert was disgusting also not edible, at $40-$50/ plate I had much higher expectations for this restaurant, I will not be be returning, service and the steaks were very good everything else not so much,

We are becoming regulars at this happy hour! Great seating, great atmosphere, and the food was pretty good. I like the new 3 for $20, good value and we had choices.
In these strange times it's great to see a staff going out of their way to follow the Covid protocol, while still maintaining an efficient, welcoming approach to the customers.
We'll be back!!

A most pleasant environment in which to enjoy a well prepared meal. The menu selection is appropriate for a 4-5 star Hotel and would suit most everyone.

Food was excellent. Portion size, presentation, overall quality, and certainly taste was first rate.

We chose to take a table on the patio which proved to be good use of a sunny Okanagan evening. Outdoor heating and blankets are available.

COVID-19 policies including mandatory use of a mask until seated, pre-entry hand sanitizing, carefully "distanced" tables, specified "in" and "out" entryways and no cash payment were explained to us before we entered the premises and made us feel safe.

Staff were all courteous and ensured our needs were met without being overly intrusive.
We needed to use a wheelchair on this visit and found it quite easy to move around without bumping into anyone (or anything!)

We'll certainly come back at the next opportunity .

The happy hour prawn dish had 2 sad prawns for $10..the kitchen staff who served them had a "here you go suckers" look. The prosutto pizza had a reasonable crust but honestly was tasteless. This is pizza, not beef wellington..Gordon Ramsay would throw this pizza at the chef. Save your money and go elsewhere..

Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. This restaurant is taking covid cautious to a new level so bring your mask and feel at ease. Food had by our party was pork chop, wings, burger, fish and chips and baked salmon without the bacon sprinkles. They were all excellent followed by creme brulee and chocolate crunch for desert. Service was top notch, ambience was great and us picky eaters will return. Thanks for a special evening and keeping your patrons safe.

Our server, I wish I caught her name but she’s preggo with her first baby boy and is due in Dec was absolutely phenomenal! Being in the industry myself, servers like her just make the dining experience that more pleasurable. My friends pork chop wasn’t entirely cooked through but one of the service managers/managers came over within less than a minute and apologized about it and we appreciate that. Overall, my first time experience there I give it a 10/10. Host/Hostess were prompt with the Covid 19 rules and guidelines. Tables were very clean. Staff was great. Keep up the great work O&C.

Over cooked pork which I could easily make on a BBQ. I swear it was like eating a rubber boot (I've never had a rubber boot) That's the only way to describe that meal. very poor quality....The service was okay.

I was disappointed in the food, the burgers were average, pizza was below average. Service was slow, Covid-wariness was over the top and it was generally not the way we wanted to present Okanagan dining to our friends. We won't be back.

Day is along water which was awesome except it was 8:15 pm and super dark. No light. Had to use the phone for the menu because I couldn’t read the paper one. Waiter was awesome but not very efficient. We ordered water snd 2 burgers. He offered to refill the water but brought it 20 minutes later. Asked for salt snd pepper and when it was brought there was only pepper so had to ask again for salt snd extra ketchup. Got 1 pack each. The burgers were very under seasoned. Heaters were on which was great!

Our server was sweet and funny. Service was excellent. The menu was unexpected comfort food which was fine but below expectations for a hotel. Then again, most high end hotels seem to have cafeteria style areas for guests rather than formal restaurants. Good for what it was.
