Thought we would try the restaurant again as our first visit did disappoint us however this visit was great. We decided we would do the tapas menu for something different and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is very quaint and yet inviting. The only drawback for the restaurant is a parking issue...this was an evening where there was an event at Prospera arena so parking was at a premium...keep that in mind however it should not distract you from attending and having a great meal and evening...highly recommended.

This was our second visit to Waterfront Wines. Our opinion since the first visit about a year ago has not changed.
The food is good, but portions small. Grossly overpriced in our opinion, however.
Service was good. As an aside, we recently came back from a resort vacation in Mexico. The resort had a policy that all staff should have their tats covered. The Waterfront should consider a similar policy.
The wine list was, as the food, grossly overpriced.
The interior ambiance leaves a lot to be desired, and the tables are uncomfortably small and too close together

This is one of , if not my favourite restaurant in Kelowna! The menu is always changing and Mark Filatow is amazing at the whole Farm to Table mastery!
The ambiance is great and their wine list is stellar! Also the service is really outstanding. Never had a bad dish here and they have lots of specials that change constantly.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday on a very snowy night. The service was outstanding with great recommendations on food and wine. Food was elegant, unique and delicious. From the charcuterie through to dessert. Excellent wine list. Pricey but loved every bit of it!

I really wanted to like this place a bit more. Smaller places are easier to manage and are just more fun to cook at, you can really work your passion into your week and learn. In looking at the food on ours (and others) tables, I didn’t see that passion so much? The dessert menu is fantastic and the dishes we saw looked great. Kitchen team is talented but the food was a bit too inside the box for me at that price. I heard grumblings about the menu needing a change, but it was new for us. Color me undecided?

Was unitially disappointed in the menu offering mostly red meat options. There were only two other choices for non red meat eaters. However, our server did check on, and offer a third option (fish) which was delicious.
We did feel the wines ‘by the Glass’ were a little high priced.

The food-definitely outstanding, albeit portions are on the small size. Price is typical for this quality of food. We spent $170 between 2 people, it would have been nice to have been given more respect by someone other than the water server.
A canned presentation by our server. And calling absolutely everyone "Lovlies", ummm no. Obviously, not into her job nor interested in the actual people paying her wage. She was perhaps having a bad day. Fair enough but when she noticed the mere 10% tip I left her, I saw a look of disdain cross her face as she left our table and didnt even bring our coats back to us! I had to ask the water server to fetch them.
Unfortunately a first and LAST time to spend our monthly date night at Waterfront Wines. Sayonara.

The best place to eat in Kelowna! The food is seasonal, local and prepared with an artist touch. The best part is the wine list, there are standards that everyone likes but there are also eccentric surprises! I have been enjoying this restaurant for over a decade and the staff has consistently been excellent. Great leadership and the rest follows! Thanks
