Tasty, interesting food. I had squid while my husband had elk and we both enjoyed our meals immensely. Not huge servings but enough. We shared the homemade chocolate mini donuts for dessert. Our server was informative and cheery so all in all a great experience.

The food and service was outstanding. The server did an excellent job on ensuring that a minor allergy I have would not impact on my dining experience.

We went for dinner for my Husbands birthday. The entire evening did not dissappoint.
Started with Bubbles, then the feature appetizer of Tempura Calamarie tender and nicely battered. Then we both ordered the Flat Iron Steak. In reading the reviews we knew this item has been a long time favorite. It was delicious! Full plate, veggies and smashed potatoes were cooked to perfection. Presentation was picture worthy.
I highly recommend Waterfront Wines for any night or occasion.

Every staff member was wearing a mask and we could see signs that the restaurant was sanitized. The service was superb and very informative. The Wagyu specials were all cooked to perfection with an incredibly tasteful sauce. It was the very best meal we have enjoyed here in Kelowna. It does not get any better than this restaurant. Hats off to the chef. 🙌🏻

I found the room in which we were seated was very loud. A group of friends came in and were seated in the other tables. The noise from their conversation was so loud that we couldn’t hear. Their conversation carried across the room. Either the whole room be booked for one group of friends or individual couples.
I enjoy coming to WF Wines but that night the noise was too loud to enjoy a quiet meal.
Also the server’s voice was very loud due to the noise in the room

Everything was fantastic besides the wagyu was very chewy we wouldn’t order that again. Appetizers, wine and the duck made up for it. We love it there and will go back.

Food was excellent. Perfectly prepared. Service was extremely good - friendly and efficient- just the right amount of time between courses. The hard surfaces everywhere make it a little loud but bearable.

Very friendly and quiet atmosphere. Our server was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The menu selection had many tasty options - i had the steak with mixed veg, every bite was delicious! My partner had the meat and cheese plate it was a good size and all she had. Both were good and satisfying portions, without being too much

Recently moved to town from TO and was recommended Waterfront by a friend. Was definitely not disappointed! Delicious cocktails, impressive wine list, fantastic food. Our server was very charming, and definitely knew his stuff! (Shane I wanna say?). My one and only note would be that I prefer my oysters served on a bed of ice, instead of coarse salt. I did find them to be a bit on the warm side, but they were tasty all the same. Will absolutely be returning.

Food was excellent for the most part but both my wife and I got the rib eye special and it was very undercooked. My wife sent hers back to be cooked more and they re cooked her same piece of meat and brought it back very tough and still not the way she asked for. At the end she never even ate 5 bites and we ended up paying full price
