Waterfront Wines Ratings and Reviews

Overall a good spot for casual meal with friends. Service was very good. Food was good - I would rate it excellent if the meals were served at the right temperature. Soup and fish entrees were not warm enough. My husband raves about the flat iron grilled steak - best comfort food.

Waterfront wines was highly recommended by friends. They must have much more money than we do or just don't care about value. One of our diner guest is a Toronto Chef so he knows a thing or two about restaurants. He agrees that the food was not that great and the prices esp. for wine were a bit much for what you get. Won't be going back anytime soon.

We enjoyed the food and the service was very nice but we were looking for a place to dress up and where others would be dressed up. The menu and wine list is not inexpensive yet the first person I saw when I walked in the door was a man in a t-shirt and his hat on backwards. Another woman was wearing a hoody and someone else was in shorts for an 830 pm Saturday seating. The restaurant was nice and we might go back but not if we're looking for a place to dress well.

Had a dinner with friends who were visiting Kelowna. Service was attentive and well paced even with our request to order appetizers then main course later on. Specials are always a good bet and make the menu more interesting for those of us who visit often.

We had an awesome dinner at the resto with a great host at the bar. The food was delicious along with some delicious wine. The corn gnocchi was my favourite part; though the steak was also delicious along with the "life-changing" mashed potatoes. Actually 5-star. Thanks waterfront wines for a great birthday dinner.

The best dining experience that I had since I came to Canada in 2011. Small, quiet and personal dining room. Friendly and knowledgeable personnel. Great wine list with both local and international gems, and of course one of the best cooked meal in a long time.

Good service and great food. It was the best of the several meals we ate in restaurants over the course of our vacation. The flat iron steak and mashed potatoes were amazing. The appy's were great, perhaps a little small for the $$, but the main course was good value and for $2 you can do a split plate option where they beef up the sides for you. Highly recommend for dinner if you are in the area.

We have been to Waterfront wines last year and the food was so incredible that we returned this year forgetting that we have been there last year. We were escorted to the same table we dined at last year. We joked about it but the waitress who escorted us there was sulky, no smile, did not say welcome back. Our waitress was excellent, she was kind and ensured a candle was on
my friend's desert nice and thoughtful

This restaurant is a wow. Smart and trendy. Menu changes regularly depending on season and local (yeah!) food availability. Fun serve staff. Chef takes feedback from all serve staff and is creating something special here; tasty dishes at very reasonable rates. For sure add the Happy Days sauce to the Tapas apps. We'll be back.

Listed as business casual, I didn't think shorts would qualify. Disappointed that many diners looked like that just got in from the beach. The food deserved more respect than that.
Not convinced I'll make a return visit, too bad since Waterfront came highly recommended

Out of all the fine dining establishments we ate at in Kelowna, this was our favorite! The octopus and squid were extremely tender, the best we have ever had. Our waiter was exceptional and had first hand knowledge of all the dishes offered.

Wonderful menu and wine list. Top shelf, amongst the best in BC, and I've been to most of them.
For the price and quality of the food and wine experience; the ambiance and service left alot to be desired. Loud, kinda plain; and our OpenTable reservation got us the lovely table by the bathroom door. Not ideal for a romantic or intimate business dinner.
Well worth it for the dining experience, just know what you're getting into. Try off peak and insist on a specific table if you can.

Really good service, waitress was personable and very nice. Food was a disappointment with no flavour and very tough to chew (expensive!!) steak. Cocktails were great though. A little crowded table-wise, and don't be fooled - it's not on the waterfront.

Our experience at Waterfront Wines could not have been better. We had heard that this restaurant, owned by Mark Filatow, was outstanding so we booked it for our 32nd year anniversary dinner - it definitely did not disappoint! They didn't know that it was our anniversary initially but they gave us the most romantic table in the restaurant - very much appreciated! Whether special occasion or casual occasion, we would recommend Waterfront Wines to everyone.
