Under the direction of Chef & Sommelier Mark Filatow, Waterfront Restaurant & Wine Bar has developed a fresh, continually evolving menu which reflects all that the Okanagan has to offer. Our comfort food is made with fresh, seasonal Okanagan flavours, international influences, and hand-made care.
With over twenty years of experience, Chef Mark Filatow has had the honour of working at some of BC’s top restaurants including the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino, Bishops and Diva at the Met in Vancouver and Fresco Restaurant (now known as RauDZ) in Kelowna before taking the reins at Waterfront Wines in (year). Not only is Mark an exceptionally talented chef, he is also certified by the International Sommelier Guild which allows him to retain an extraordinary wine list and create perfectly paired dishes.
Chef has seen many accolades during his time at Waterfront including numerous Gold Medals at the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, the coveted Southbrook Canadian Wine Award at Canada’s Food day in 2010 and most recently, the Gold Medal at Vancouver’s Gold Medal Plates in 2012. Although Chef Filatow is known as one of BC’s celebrity chefs (even named one of the top “Foodies Under 40” by Western Living Magazine), he has always maintained a humble approach as noted by the esteemed judges at the 2012 Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards, “self-effacing Chef Mark Filatow blends the bounty of the Okanagan with a smart and sleek room that’s “funky and affordable” again making Waterfront (Gold) the top place to gather in Kelowna.””Foodies under 40″ Western Living Magazine”In a land of far too many chain restaurants and generic dining experiences, Filatow’s hip, urban rooms and stylish seasonal cooking are a breath of fresh air in the new Okanagan.”
