Waterfront is a small 50 seat Restaurant and Wine Bar. We have just begun our eleventh year of business and have established a strong following for the creations of Chef and Sommelier Mark Filatow.

Excellent food, great use of seasonal ingredients, and the best desserts I have had in Kelowna. Very friendly staff as well. A little bit pricey, but for the quality it is absolutely worth it. I would highly recommend Waterfront Wines.

Wagyu main course. DELICIOUS! The wine the server recommended DELICIOUS! The creme brûlée delicious! Hadn’t had with cherries before, my partner didn’t care too much for the cherries but we still both polished it off! I came here in the summer with girlfriends and intentionally made reservations for a date night. Was not disappointed and would highly recommend!

The restaurant has some creative special dishes. I particularly enjoyed a Thai flavoured lamb soup - which is unusual and I probably won't ever find again. We went for a selection of appies and all were good. The service was excellent.

Food and everything was great! I didn’t give full stars because I expected waterfront. Instead it was a nice patio facing the street. Once I got over that disappointment, everything else was absolutely fantastic. Food, and service was too notch. I appreciate their detail to cleanliness and spacing too. I recommend 100%!

This is our 3rd year of eating here, and it is always a pleasant meal. This year we sat out on the patio, what a wonderful way to have dinner. The lovely waitress, sorry forgot her name, made our evening wonderful. The food is always good/enjoyable, and we will return next year. We visit from Washington state.

Outside dining was quiet and chilled. Inside dining in some locations I think was fine. We however were placed by the kitchen and bathrooms. Very noisy. The dish pit was open to the dining area so causes a lot of noise.
The food was pretty good. 3 out of 5.

My sister and I shared three appetizers this evening...the Potted Foie Gras, the Prawn Spring Rolls and the Risotto with Seared Scallops. All three dishes were delicious!! Friendly servers and great service. They also make an excellent very dry gin martini with Okanagan Distillery Gin on request! We have only been in Kelowna for 9 days and this was our second visit! Enough said??? 🤗😊

L’assiette de tapas est assez simple. Le steak était délicieux et la cuisson réussie. Le service est sympathique et chaleureux. Belle carte des vins, mais sélection un peu réduite pour la sélection au verre. Menu des plats assez réduit.

We have always had a great experience at Waterfront Wines and this was no exception. Service is always attentive without being intrusive and food is superb. We were seated closer to the kitchen which made it a bit noisier but you get to see the team work their magic. Highly recommended

Food is exceptional. The ambience and seating arrangement inside restaurant is poor. It’s too bad because it doesn’t do justice to food.
