We had another wonderful dinner Saturday at this world-class restaurant. The food is always delicious and beautifully presented. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the food and wines. Waterfront Wines Restaurant never disappoints.
Seated in the middle of traffic area and kitchen pickup not in sync with an anniversary dinner.
The decor was also nonexistent
Overall a dump with acceptable food
Any reason special or otherwise - best food in Kelowna
Outside as always!
Took my mom out for dinner for the 1st time and she was so happy!
We shared some Foie Gras, daily soup, and tartare. All soo good. For mains, we got the duck, wagyu steak, and sablefish. All incredible.
Sharleen's service is amazing as always ❤
Our first time there and the food was amazing as well as outstanding service. It was hubby's birthday and they surprised us with the most delicious and moist chocolate cake with a candle! Great selection of wine. Its a quaint spot and somewhat eclectic which we like. My only complaint, and it really isn't one, was that it was a tad chilly, but having said that, we are experiencing record cold temperatures so not really their fault. We would definitely go back again and looking forward to cocktails and appies on their beautiful patio this summer!
Always outstanding experience here, one of the best restaurants in Kelowna.
Best restaurant in Kelowna, BC in my opinion. Always excellent.
I love the comfortable, casual feel of the restaurant contrasting the fine dining quality of the go od. Fabulous cocktails & wine. Service was friendly & professional. Our adult son was surprised by the inexpensive high quality custom cocktails. Highly recommend!
Always amazing food. The team are all fantastic!!!
Fantastic service and a fantastic meal.
We celebrate every anniversary with a fancy meal. We are new to Kelowna and decided to celebrate our 20th anniversary here, and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend.
We had such a great time last night at Waterfront Wines. The service was exceptional. We weren’t rushed at all. The wine selection is fantastic and the food is delicious. Unfortunately, the flank steak is so good, I continue to order this dish every time and haven’t tried anything else (other than stealing food off my friend’s plate). This is my go to spot for a special occasion meal.
Outstanding meal and service. Thank you
Food and service were great, but our table was close to the kitchen and the staff were cleaning at that time (around 8-8:30 pm), which was very loud and annoying. I would go back, but only if I could go earlier and have a different table.
Absolutely amazing experience. We can’t wait to be back!
Great food. Wonderful special. They cheerfully created a personalized cocktail for me.
Amazing food and wine selection
Fantastic as always..food and service outstanding! Can’t wait for our next visit!
Amazing food and the service and atmosphere was excellent. Hope to plan another date at the restaurant again soon!
The food and service was excellent. The only thing that concerns us was that the noise, happy as it was, was too strong.
Delicious food and great service! 10/10 Would recommend!
Food was just OK. Portions were small and quite pricey. Good service though!
We had never been before. And wanted to try one of everything on the menu. So we opted to try a tasting menu instead. It was an incredible experience
Special birthday meal that met all expectations. Impeccable service. Delicious food meeting everyone's wishes. Excellent wine list - lot of top notch local. We enjoyed every bite, every sip & every second. Excellent music too!
Absolutely amazing as usual. I've never had a bad meal ever!
This is a great small restaurant with a cool vibe. Loved seeing the open kitchen and the interaction of the team in the kitchen.
The wine list was very good so this also is a plus. We enjoyed our evening.
Everything was wonderful. We went for our thirteenth anniversary and received exemplary service, delicious meals, and glass of complimentary dessert wine to mark the occasion. 10/10!
Exquisite food, great wine pairings, ambience, and knowledgeable service. Dine here if you want an amazing evening.
Great little spot tucked away and close to downtown Kelowna. Really enjoyed the whole experience. Martinis were awesome just like the food and service. Highly recommend you try it! We’ll definitely be back.
Great waitress. The food was amazing. Mushroom toast was phenomenal
Amazing food, good service, awesome value! We loved it!!!
We appreciate the consistency in service, qualify of food, dinner options, wine list and relatively quiet space.
This is one of our most favourite restaurants in the world.
We have been visiting it since it first opened in 2004 and has never lowered it’s very high standards.The food wine ambiance service and attention to detail is absolute top quality.
All the staff are extremely friendly helpful and nothing is too much trouble.
Mark Filato is a fantastic chef and his staff are all a credit to him.
Thank you so much for another enjoyable evening and we look forward to the next visit.
Terry and Jane.
Always amazing, the cheese potato balls that come with the steak absolutely incredible
I saw the service the other tables got and I felt mine was less because I am a young lad. It’s okay tho. My girlfriend is pretty
Spectacular as usual. Sharlene and Shawn are always attentive and food is fantastic. Thank you for making my friend’s milestone birthday special.
Simply another perfect evening. Food was beyond delicious, service- impeccable.
Gotta try this gem. Food quality was amazing. Very small so be prepared to wait for your reservation time. Must try.
Shar was a great server. She was knowledgeable and prompt. Cocktails were delicious. Food was presented beautifully and was cooked to perfection. The flavours were complex but inviting. The playlist was perfect. 10/10 will recommend to everyone looking for a great dining experience.
We had such an incredible dining experience here for my boyfriend’s birthday. Highly recommend (well, anything on the menu really!), but particularly the mussels; they were huge and delicious! Perfect portion sizes and awesome Sangria too. The service was very personable too! We can’t wait to return.
Great wine list and new seating arrangement since our last visit.
