    Excellent Winery with great food, wine and ambiance! Don’t miss this one!
    I’ve been to Quails Gate Winery several times now and each time I’ve had a different experience. This is because this winery has several different parts to it. One of the best meals I’ve had in Kelowna was here several years ago. The restaurant is fabulous with unforgettable views of the vineyards and Okanagan Lake. I highly recommend making reservations at least three weeks in advance because it books up quickly! If you don’t get a reservation, you can pop into their Market Store (located on the north side of the buildings). There, they sell cooled bottles or wine, a variety of cheeses, crackers, a small selection of dessert items, and meats. Just ask for some wine cups, grab a picnic table under their trees, crack open your wine and just enjoy. On this trip, we did a tour. Kailia (sorry if I spelled your name wrong) showed us the vines and explained harvesting, pruning, the composition of the different grapes, and much more. We sampled a variety of wines (all excellent) as we walked through a small part of the vineyard. Once at the lookout area, we took more pictures of the views and then returned to the wine tasting area to sample their Pino Noir. Kailia was very knowledgeable and a great host. Thank you!

    Beautiful winery with amazing views. Wine were good. We went there 4 adults 4 children. Did the tasting down the pergola. The kids could move while we were tasting. Views were great. We didn’t experience the restaurant but had lunch at the market and was also beautiful and relaxing. Nothing but good things to say about this winery!

    Beautiful grounds and facilities
    Very nice grounds and very posh decor inside and out. No one accosted us as we wandered the grounds and took photos. I bought a bottle of Meritage wine (good it was only the bottle as cheaper at the liquor store of course). I tried it back at the hotel, it was very good. Everyone was very friendly. We sat in the seating area outside the 'Market' deli with our chai lattes, we weren't very hungry.

    Beautiful winery to visit
    The location of this winery make it worth visiting. The grounds are lovely and the gardens are beautifully manicured. There are flowing fountains in the outdoor gardens, and pathways to visit the vineyards. The actual wine tasting was nice on their patio, with beautiful lake views.

    This winery was one of the stops on our wine tasting tour. We did the tasting on their patio which had a beautiful view of the lake. There are many manicured gardens, and fountains and pathways that you can walk around to visit the property in the vineyards which was lovely.

    Wonderful lunch in a lovely setting
    While staying in West Kelowna, the locals highly recommended a visit to Quails’ Gate. The restaurant is situated beside the vineyard where you can almost reach out and touch the vines. We had a great lunch. The highlight for me was the mixed berry and beet salad. My wife really enjoyed her curried lentil soup. Our entrees were good too: risotto topped with salmon and herbed crusted halibut. Make sure you have bread with your meal! Our server, Joel, was excellent.

    Lunch with a beautiful view!
    Had a great lunch between friends! It’s a stunning setting and they serve truly amazing food! Wine was excellent. It was a wonderful discovery for our first visit to Kelowna… We will be back next time we are in town! It worth a try.

Not enough superlatives for our dinner here, after a day wine tasting!

Doug, our waiter, was very knowledgeable to the extent that he firmly told my husband why the wine he chose for his meal would not quite suit, and why his own recommendation was correct! He was of course, right! Delicious food, super wines and a stunning view over the valley. Staff even lowered and raised the blinds when they realised that we had the sun directly in our eyes.

Do not come here if you are a family of over 5 people, they will be very much prejudice against your party and won’t even allow two SEPARATE tables due to kitchen being incapable of keeping up with an order for more than 5.

Funny enough there were no kids on tables, and now I believe they have a policy against sitting immigrant families with one child. We all came to have a beautiful lunch, not to eat pizza and sit down on a picnic area where they wanted to place us.

We were badly mistreated by both hostesses and denied sitting down as any other customer in the finery. Terrible place and even worst people working there

I always visit Quail's Gate every time I go to Kelowna, as it has always been special, as my Stepdad who passed and his best friend Vernon took me there my first visit to the Okanagan. This visit was with my wife, and was treated like a we were not wanted. We went into the main building where the wine is on display. and then went outside to view the lake and get some sunshine. A lady asked me if we were there for a wine tasting, and we said we drove 12 hours to get here to enjoy the scenery and buy some wine. She told me we could not be out on the patio, as it is for wine tasting guests only. I told her there are only 5 people on the who patio, and we just wanted to take some pictures. She told me we were to go outside and sit on the patios. I was shocked by the rudeness and unprofessionalism. My wife and I went to the restaurant as we were meeting a local friend for lunch. The meal was great and the service was fabulous. We ended up going back inside and buying 1 bottle of win, instead of the case that we went there to buy. The same lady was our cashier and I mentioned to her that we drove 12 hours to come here for lunch and buy some wine, and was kicked off the patio. She then said its for paying customers. I will never come back to Quail's Gate again, and when asked by many of my colleagues and friends, I will explain to them that if you are not a high spender, the service is bad. Thanks goodness we stopped at Friend, and met a gal Siena who made us feel at home right from when we walked in. I guess i found our new annual spot.
