  • "Low quality food and service. Not much more to say! Don't go!!!! 3/10."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our server was attentive, fast and had a great knowledge of the menu and drink menu. This was the last place we ate on our honeymoon and it made our trip. The food was incredible! My husband is vegetarian and it's really hard to find a spot to eat where he has more than one or two options, so it was great to find a nice place to eat where he didn't have any trouble with dietary options. All the food came out fast and the portion sizes were perfect. I only wish I saved room for dessert. The chefs and all the staff there have my thanks for a wonderful evening. :)"

  • "Very good food, we had the chilli prawns followed by cod and salmon. All excellent. The only downside is that this is not a place to linger and stretch out an evening with friends, the service comes quick and just keeps coming, we were in and out in less than an hour."

  • "We visited 21 Steps Kitchen + Bar over the May long weekend, for my 40th birthday. We were a group of 7 ladies, and we were seated in a fabulous round table in the corner overlooking the Village Stroll. The food was fantastic, and was a great value for the tasty treats we sampled. Thank you very much for making my birthday a memory to remember! :)"

  • "Both of us have choosen the 3-course-dinner-special for 36 CAD. Big menu card to choose an entrée & a main course. So everybody should definitely find something he likes. Already the starter ( smoked salmon & ceasar salad ) was a very generous plate & tasty. Even so the main course ( bacon wrapped beef filet & salmon steak ). At the end, we could choose a dessert from a separate menu card ( cheesecake & blueberry crumble ). On top of that, friendly & courteous waiter. Nice atmosphere, enough space to eat and clean toilettes. Definitely worth to go there."

  • "We were there for a birthday celebration. All of our meals were cooked as requested and we were very pleased. One group of partiers close to us were sometimes a bit obnoxious and kept coming to a different table next to us to enjoy themselves more; they were a bit on the loud side and because of lack of space were continuously knocking into at least one of us at our table each time. However, everything else was so nice and the menu had plenty of options for everyone."

  • "Service was great! Okay food, I had the rib eye steak which I ordered medium-rare and was served medium. This was fine because the steak had a lot of flavour. My husband ordered the ribs which came with way too much sauce. Once he scraped the excess sauce off he said they were okay."

  • "We booked 21 steps for our nice dinner out this past weekend. We arrived a few minutes early and our table was ready. Looked over the menu and decided what we would be having. Ordered our drinks and appy's at the same time. Didn't even get a sip of our drink and appy's arrived way to fast. Are they precooked in the back. Faster than McDonalds. I am not saying this is a bad thing but when you are looking for a nice dinner out way to fast. Quickly drank our drinks as we wanted wine with dinner. Dinner came just as fast. I truly felt this experience was like being at a fast food restaurant. We both had steak and it was okay nothing special. I had the filet and it was very chewy."

Fried goat cheese was awesome. Mains selected were cod in a really tasty sauceand pork chop again in a delicious sauce Dessert was monte cristo coffee and cheesecake Awesome meal. Was not rushed. Nice relaxing experience. Highly recommend "

  • "Heard this was one of the best restaurants in Whistler but turned out to be a real underwhelming experience. Food was just bearly ok but certainly nothing creative or innovative. Would have expected something on the high end dining experience only thing high end was the prices. Definitely not going back. "

  • "I appreciated that the restaurant was able to accommodate my special requests - sat in a great location and the server brought us champagne at the start as requested. I remember my food being better the first time I visited; my prawns and scallops were over done but otherwise had a great experience."

  • "booked for 7 ...arrived with 9...2 kids added....managed to seat us but manager/host did not appear happy...did not feel welcome.....food was good...service was good....the manager/host then cancelled our open table reservation (i guess to stop us from getting the precious 100 points)...the only reason i booked this restaurant was because it was on open table....as a result of the technical cancellation i have wasted time clarifying my reservation etc.....not pleasant..."

  • "My wife and I came up to Whistler for the week and after experiencing some fine local cuisine (Sushi - night one, Steak - night two) we weren't really expecting much for our third night at 21 Steps. However, as it turns out, we were pleasantly surprised. Great food and a warm "vibe" made for a very positive experience. Service was top-notch and the place just had a really positive energy to it. Not the place for a quiet getaway, but if you like that uptempo, open, vibrant dining experience, then you could do far worse than 21. Great job guys - Thanks! JP"

  • "We had a wonderful special occasion dinner last week at 21 Steps! This is a must-do o. Our annual trip to Whistler. The food Was fantastic and Stacey and Gardiner are wonderful hosts! Be sure to add this to your list of wonderful whistler experiences!"

  • "Ate here on recent trip, food is good, not great. During dinner it is VERY LOUD. We were in the middle of the room, you almost have to yell to be heard the someone across the table from you. Service was ok, no problems."

  • "I love 21 steps - I have lived in Whistler for 2 years now and it is my favorite restaurant in town. The food is always great without fail - the baked mushroom caps small plate is my "best dish" in Whistler. However, the last 2 times in 2 weeks that I have dined here, I have felt the service to be poor; which is upsetting, as I recommend this restaurant to a lot of people working in a hotel. Last week the service was very long, it took 20 minutes for 1 drink to be brought to the table after ordering, and then my pasta dish that I asked to take away with me was never brought to the table for me to take home. Then this week a friend and I were continuously rushed to make decisions and eat because of the next reservation for our table."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Really, my hotel recommended this restaurant and I had to go on my own the first time. Not only was the filet tender and flavorful, but the service was great! It was busy and they still took the time to make me feel comfortable. When I came back with my husband it was just as good! And since I wasn't alone, I was able to fit in the mushroom cap appetizer - yummy! Definitely will keep this place in mind next time I'm in Whistler!!"

  • "Came with 4 other friends for Saturday night dinner and we all thought our meals were great and will be back again."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Atmosphere was great, lots of relaxed energy in a great location. We started with the mussels - east coast mussels on the west coast, disappointed not see local mussels when they can be sourced so close. Went with the curry sauce and the chef just didn't nail it, it was OK. The main course was better, seafood pasta included lots of good seafood but the sauce was bland, again the chef didn't nail it. The short rib was outstanding, my wife wished she would have ordered it too, we would definitely recommend it. Finished with dessert, mud pie, good but not to die for. Service was very good, the waitress was attentive but not overbearing, friendly and sincere. Prices were fair, two can dine for about $100 plus tip."

  • "Small plates were bland and disappointing--we ordered the Caesar salad and Queso Fundido. Large plates ranged from good (bison steak) to I could have had my child out this in a crock-pot style (short ribs). Service was spotty at best. Did not stay for dessert."

  • "We had an amazing dinner at 21 Steps and really enjoyed the experience. It's got a great location and nice views of the town. The menu was fantastic and hard to choose from all the great items. The prices were excellent for the quality and quantity of food. This was the best dining experience we had in Whistler after 6 days of eating out. Great service and nice atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We would have gone several times if we'd tried it earlier in our stay. We also ventured upstiars to The Attic (their lounge) for drinks and dessert and this was also very nice. A great place!"

  • "Took my boyfriend for his bday dinner. He ordered the peppercorn filet. It was cooked perfectly medium rare. Our waitress was very attentive and she remembered to bring out his bday cake I bought for him. The only negative comment was the line to be seated was long (we had a reservation) but we saw at least 4 tables which were empty/open. Not sure why there was a line but maybe lack of waitstaff on Sunday. Great dinner."

  • "Loved this restaurant. We made a reservation on a thursday for Friday evening and there weren't many time options left. We chose 9pm , and when we arrived, our table was ready and waiting for us. Service was excellent, entrees were amazing and desserts to die for. Wish we had found this place earlier in our vacation because we would have loved to have gone back."
