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.

The service was outstanding. The food was well prepared and the tastes were great. Would recommend the Steelhead Trout over the Halibut (mustard sauce was a bit overpowering).
is a energetic setting in the heart of Kelowna's Downtown. This was our second visit and we will be back a gain.

Server Allison was true pro...great suggestions, knowledgeable about local wines, prompt, fun...perfect. Hubbie had the lamb, I had halibut. Fish was a little too salty, but the potatoes and veggies that came with it were delicious, perfectly cooked. Highly recommend, especially for foodies and folks who like to share good food.

It was a great dining experience. We especially liked the cheese platter option. I enjoyed the selection of wines.
The food was good, my fish was a bit too salty, but I find that is normal for Kelowna restaurants.
My only negative was the table had a few crumbs on it when we sat down which were never cleaned; and the cutlery when being replaced was placed directly on the table plastic place mats which should not be done in a finer dining situation

Waterfront Wines continues to be our favorite spot when we visit Kelowna. It is like home...the staff all remember you and are extremely knowledgeable about food and wine....as well as being very professional and truly nice people. Chef Mark's food is always fantastic!

We made a reservation for a big group, and the service was amazing! The food was incredibly delicious and the selection pleased everybody. If I ever go back to Kelowna I would definitely return to this restaurant!

Great meal. Our guests said it was the best duck breast they've ever had. My wife had the hanger steak which she loved and I had the steelhead trout with a miso hollandaise that was excellent. Our waiter Ian was very good.

Its an amazing experience EVERYTIME. It's always nice to have a restaurant which you know will consistently provide amazing service and quality food at a decent price. If you're in Kelowna, make sure it a priority. Special shout out to Ian!

Wow! This was a wonderful dining experience from the octopus and squid starter to the salmon and trout main courses. The vegetables were fresh and the sauce exquisite. We went with the recommended wine, a local Pinot Blanc, that was fantastic. One of the best dining experiences my wife and I have had in years and we eat out frequently. Kudos to the chef and staff for a memorable night.
