  1. Fantastic new restaurant

     (5 / 5)

    Probably the best new restaurant in the Okanagan. The menu has locally sourced produce, dairy and protein. A lot of the produce is grown on site. They will cater to your dietary needs. Everything is delicious from the daily soups to the Power Bowl, crab cakes, Mac and cheese, risotto….you name it.

  2. Amazing brunch with friends

     (5 / 5)

    Have been wanting to do brunch here for awhile & I definitely was not disappointed! Cloud cakes were everything I dreamt they would be. Great flavour and fluffy but thick. The whipped cream and grilled oranges paired divinely with the maple syrup to make an all in all well rounded flavour that was delicate & delicious. Also got a side of bacon with smelled lightly smoked. They were thick with a good meat to fat ratio and not overly salty. My husband got the ham Benedict and it looked delicious also. Will be making a second trip (or more) in the future!

  3. Delectable!

     (5 / 5)

    The service from Mark was impeccable. The food was divine. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We chose several items from the menu to share and enjoyed it all. Highly recommend eating here.

  4. Great outdoor eating venue

     (5 / 5)

    After doing our wine tasting at 50th Parallel, we took in Block One for a light lunch. We shared the Wagyu Beef Burger. The kitchen was great, as they cut the burger in 1/2 before serving, and provided an ample serving of fries for each of us. The burger was great…there was Dijon mustard within the patty…delicious!! Can only imagine the view would be great on sunny days…unfortunately the smoke did not provide that view.

  5. Outstanding Service!

     (5 / 5)

    We ate at Block One tonight & had the best service during our stay in the okanagan. Mike, our server, provided exceptional service start to finish. The food was very good, with the highlight being the Cracker Jack desert, recommended by Mike. The view is beautiful. The vibe on the patio is vibrant and lively. Great experience, would definitely eat at Block One again. It was busy, so make a reservation.

  6. A New Okanagan Hidden Gem

     (5 / 5)

    If you take the time to venture off Hiway 97 between Vernon and Kelowna and follow the winding roads to the Okanagan Lake side of Lake Country you will be rewarded at this trendy restaurant at Parallel 50 Winery. The view over the lake is delightful and the food will keep you coming back. Although it has only been open since Mother’s Day, it runs like a well oiled machine. Service is fabulous. Very personal and friendly. This hidden gem has been discovered by locals and they return time and again. We know because we are two of them.

  7. Excellent Experience

     (5 / 5)

    My wife and I had an excellent experience at Block One for my birthday. Food and service are the best we’ve experienced in the interior. Highly recommended dinner with a view of the vines and the lake!

  8. Lunch at the Patio Bar

     (5 / 5)

  9. Wondering where to take friends when they come to visit? This is the place!

     (4 / 5)

    Wondering where to take friends when they come to the Okanagan? When great friends recently came to visit us we decided to explore Block One.. at 50th Parallel. The staff are phenomenal,.. great service and personal attention to detail that can at times be forgotten during the hubbub of an opening season. The food was awesome and will definitely bring us back. We stuck to the appy menu. We left satisfied and impressed! The Pinot Noir ( Ashley recommended) was great. A solid red with full body and flavour. We highly recommend this new find… and ask for Ashley… she will ensure that your visit is everything you hope!.
