Under the direction of Chef & Sommelier Mark Filatow, Waterfront Wines Restaurant & Wine Bar has developed a fresh, continually evolving menu which reflects all that the Okanagan has to offer.

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. Chef Filatow exudes a passion for his art that is brought to new heights through marriages with the exclusive selections found on our wine list.

Our menu specializes in a mixture of Tapas-style items and Main Courses, with the focus on offering our guests as wide a variety of flavors as possible.

Delicious food with an impressive selection of local wines - and very knowledgeable staff who can make food and wine pairing recommendations. Top restaurant in Kelowna. Visited two nights in a row - the first we sat at the bar for wine and tapas. The second we reserved ahead and had a proper meal. Both experiences were excellent.

Excellent, just excellent. The dinner was probably the best fine dining experience we have enjoyed in the last 3 years (seriously). Good sized portions but not too big. We had the mussels (shared them). Cooked perfectly. And both of us enjoyed the lamb. Tender succulent gorgeous sauces and a lovely relish on the side. The roasted vegetables were very good. And dessert was so tasty....I never order dessert.

Shane was an excellent waiter. Gave us good suggestions, attentive but not “in your face”.

We will be back!

Thank you.

We had an excellent evening. The food was delicious. My son is a chef. He runs a restaurant. So knows the business. He was impressed as we were. I hope someone invites us to dine with you again.

As always, we were treated royally, our dinners were scrumptious, an excellent evening all around. Thank you again for a wonderful meal. If you haven't tried their Angus flat iron steak, you must, it's the best!! Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine, friendly and prompt.

Easily our favourite restaurant in the Okanagan. The space is cozy, the service (especially Genevieve + Shar) is amazing, they have an eclectic local wine list and the food is always to die for.

In general the food was well prepared and tasted good. The feature duck dish was decent, but uninspiring. I was hoping for something more inventive than well cooked duck in a brown sauce. Service and atmosphere were good. I would return and try some other dishes.

Although the food was very good, the noise level was very high and hard to hear my partner across the table, we were talking as loud as we could without yelling. As for ambiance there really was none, seating for us was across from the bar and felt very cafeteria like and crowded. The fact we couldn't hear each other very well took any possible ambiance away. Not a great place for a date night. I would recommend for good food but not if your looking for ambiance.

Everyone was having a great night out after not seeing each other since December. We started off with Cocktails, had a couple of bottles of wine and appetizers, then our main meal. Finished with Cocktails and dessert. At some point while we were sipping our cocktails and someone was eating a dessert, we were told by one of the restaurant staff "We have sold this table, so you'll have to leave" I live downtown and eat dinner out about 3-4 days of the week and often have business dinners at Waterfront Wines with larger groups. I have never been told that I could not stay any longer or have another drink, at a restaurant, before Last Saturday night. I understand if you have advertised seating times etc. but nowhere does it say that I can only stay for 2 hours then I have to get out. Now I know.

The atmosphere at Waterfront Wines is warm and inviting. We ate there for our Anniversary and will definitely be returning. Everything we ate was prepared and served in a timely manner and tasted unbelievably good. We appreciated the variety available on the menu for starters, main dishes, drinks and desserts. Our favourites included: the cheese plate, cod & octopus main, squash dumplings with tofu & mushrooms main, coconut and lemon dessert. The special was steak, which sounded delicious as well. There truly is something for every pallet on, The Waterfront Wines menu.

Enjoyed the food and the ambience. Very good appetizers, entrees and desserts. Cheese selections for cheese tray were good but portions were fairly small so we had to order more cheese to use up bread and crackers.

Fabulous food and service! One of the things I loved about this restaurant was how cozy it was, and how I could actually hear what my friend was saying. Due to hearing loss, I struggle in many of the newer cavernous and super loud eating establishments. And, to top it off, the chef totally catered to my dairy allergy. It was all delicious.

Well worth your time. As first timers we did not know what to expect. A real gem. Service was a 6 out of 5. The food matched the service. Parking was a challenge but it's a minor thing given the enjoyment of the evening.

Excellent cocktails. Charcuterie, including recommended Cheeses and foie gras were both superb. My wife had the lamb, which was excellent. Beautifully seasoned and cooked dish. My fish (the special) was, unfortunately, very "fishy," so sort of disappointing there.

This was our 3rd valentine dinner and the previous 2 years is what brought us back for the 3rd year.
We love the restaurant, staff were great, ambiance is amazing but we were really underwhelmed with the food this year. One would think when you have a $250 meal you would be wowed, but we were not all.
Like I mentioned the previous 2 years brought us back this year but we will be choosing another spot next year.
Staff were awesome, food was just ok this year
