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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
