We went to this restaurant last July while on vacation. The service was so poor...We waited so long for everything and had to ask a few times when our food was coming. After about an hour and 15 minutes the waiter told us there had been an episode in the kitchen, whatever that meant. We had empty wine glasses and water glasses and no sign of any food and a waiter that didn't want to make eye contact with us. We paid for our wine and walked out. We went up the street to a lovely Tai restaurate that was more than happy to have our business. We are so sorry to have wasted our one night in Kelowna on such a ROTTEN place. You named it not me!

Sharing small plate servings with your partner is such a treat. You get to sample several different offerings, all with uniquely different flavours. You can match them all with your wine choice or vice versa. Or you can order the wine flight and have three small samples and then choose from there. They offer several local wines that are not to be found in the large stores. Service is very good and they have knowledge of the menu and the wines. Location is perfect with a lively street scene and the park and waterfront are right across the street.

Great little wine bar (reminds of BIN942 Vancouver) and a nice varied menu. A great place to meet and enjoy the some of the local wines you won't find in the liquor store and because you can still hear your conversation over music! We enjoyed greens, Charcuterie and the Pizza which was a perfect accompaniment to our wines. The atmosphere is friendly and kind of like hanging out at a friends kitchen party. It's relaxed and really a romantic little place to enjoy your company or meet others at the bar seating. Service was great. Loved it and will definitely return.

Terrific open airy decor; awesome artwork including Alex Fung paintings; terrific downtown location at the Sails on Bernard/City park entrance. Very relaxing! The menu is fabulous. 3 of us and we enjoyed sharing some small starters (not so small, very generous) and an awesome gluten free vegan pizza! The Hummus, home made, fabulous. The Nachos are very unique with a very special touch of fresh veggies, the avocado chunks really were awesome. The pizza, spectacular.
The local wine selection was wonderful, terrific location to sample some unique small organic Okanagan Wineries best!
We will be back!

We had one of their thin crust pizzas and the curried broccoli & manchego cheese cakes. Both were excellent. The portion sizes weren't huge but we got what we expected for tapas. We sat outside on the street patio and watched the activity across the street in the park and beach. We would stop here again on our next visit to Kelowna.
