We celebrated our anniversary with a wonderful dining experience. The dishes were beautifully presented and hubby loved the Inside Out Ravioli starter. I swooned over the, "life changing mashed potatoes," that came with my steak. Had a glass of Orofino's Cabernet Sauvignon Glorious! Service was top notch!

Service was fantastic and the food was superb. We enjoyed our evening. Only downside was being seated at a small two person table right smack next to another two person table. We were so close we felt like we were part of the table next to ours conversation and it was very distracting.

I have been a number of times. Was rather disappointed this time. The meat dishes were over cooked and dry. Accompanying veggies / starch were quite heavy for a summer plate. As always, the staff was amazing.

Hands-down our favourite local restaurant. The service and food are impeccable. The wine choices are always changing and lovely.
Last minute drop in
Was in Kelowna for a one day and decided to try here because we were wait listed on two other restaurants in the DT area. The food was really good, octopus / calamari was done exceptionally well. Very tender. The inner décor was less than desirable. Felt old and dated. Furniture looked like leftover diner tables and chairs. The food is would make me a return customer. Otherwise would likely consider going somewhere else.
When in Kelowna...
Such a special spot. Reservations are a must. Small menu indicates that all dishes are carefully created and of excellent quality. Simply delicious...as is the wine :) Perfect spot to celebrate special occasions. Enjoy!
A little salty
Cozy place. We had a cheese plate to start which was quite nice. The flatiron steak for a main. While it was cooked to perfection, it was over salted by the chef and almost inedible. Service was good
Great service and delivered tasy food on plates. Seasonal menu prepared very well. Am a regular.
I dont have anything bad to say at all! Great food, great wine, great service. We will definitely go back.

Special for that night was Lamb and it is the best, melts in your mouth and tasty My wife orders the halibut and was never disappointed. We cleaned up plates.
Food and service were good. Not a super fan of the lentil crochettes with the halibut but my husband liked them. Dessert was excellent also.
Enjoyed an excellent meal with great service. Thanks!

Tasty food but very small and exceedingly noisy inside. Try to get an outside table or skip it. Also not a 'waterfront' restaurant, is street facing with no water in sight.

Creativity and value were lacking to the vegan dinner prepared. The Steak dinner lacked vegetables and was given a bread knife to cut steak with (steak was cold and rubbery). Small and very very loud. Couldn't have a conversation with the people dining in your party but could hear the other people two feet on either side of you. Nothing extraordinary at all here.
Another Winner at Waterfront Wines
Our first time back in 2016, maybe our 10th time here and it was consistent again with excellent food. The hummus in the tapas plate is some of the best I've ever had. The Penny Lane gin cocktail was amazing, and the wine list here is always good. 2 of us had the special which was pronounced great, the flat iron with potatoes was very good, and I had the trout which was also good but the most outstanding thing was the corn gnocchi - everyone at our table raved about it, better than at many Italian restaurants. Peach tart for dessert was delicious. We also appreciate the serving sizes here, never go away feeling like we've over eaten which is nice. Can see no reason to patronize other places instead of returning here.

Knowledgeable attentive staff, creative dishes beautifully presented, delicious combinations, great wine on special,
Always a good meal and well setup wine list.
Always a good meal and well setup wine list, although missing a good selection of Rosé. Like the décor but is a bit tight now since reno. Great once patio opens. Service always great with added wine knowledge a huge plus. Still tops in Kelowna.
First time at venue. Staff friendly and very helpful. Sommelier on staff knows wine and provided great advice. Food was well presented and inspirational. Would definitely go back. Great wine list.

It had been on our list to try for a while. Now I'm wishing we had gone sooner, dinner was delicious. I had the trout and ate every scrumptious morsel.
winner at waterfront wines
An on time seat for the 2 of us. Prompt and efficient and knowledgable service. Excellent foie gras and fine celaric soup. The sweetbreads as an appy were a bit overpowered by the cauliflower puree and bits. Fish and oysters were fresh and full of good tastes. Wines by the glass were well chosen . A good time.
Low quality mussels.
The mussels were very small, and farmed. Many of the shells were cracked leaving pieces in our mouths and risked cracking a tooth. Quality mussels don't crack shells. Broth was fantastic and the trout dish was superb. The rest of the experience was very nice.. Improve the mussels please.
Great food, great service
We were there a few nights ago. Looked online and seen it had good reviews. We weren't disappointed. Everything was delicious.Best perogies I have ever tasted. Our waiter (beard Ian??) knows his job well. We dropped close to 200 between myself and the wife but it was worth it. Definitely going back. Only complaint is maybe more varieties of beers
Not so great
Food was mediocre. I had pork loin which had chunks of fat. Ordered roasted vegetables with it which were nice. Were seated in iddle table by the door. Too cramped and other tables were available. Food portions were small and over priced. I would not go back
Went to Waterfront on a Monday night to celebrate and had an absolutely fantastic experience. Beautiful charcuterie board, great recommendations for wine and a great ambiance. One of our favorites in Kelowna!
Fantastic food! Our server Erica was wonderful; very knowledgeable.
Our favourite Kelowna restaurant!
Amazing restaurant! Super friendly staff, delicious food and wine! Can't wait to come again!!!
Best bartenders and meal in town!!
I hate to give a review for fears we wouldn't get a seat next time. But this place is a must stop. The bartenders are always on point and the chef doesn't disappoint
