    This amazing restaurant has a view that is beyond spectacular. Dinner for one is $18-$30 per plate sans drinks. We went for a lunch pre wedding. The views made the elk burger with cherry ketchup take real pride in Canada.

    We were there 4 years ago and came back this year because it was a memorable experience. This time the food and service was below expectations. The food portion was small and lacking flavour. We were also expecting the cost of the gondola to be off set with the meal cost. So the overall day was quite a lot more money than we were expecting.

    I've been here for lunch 3 times over the past 15 years. we come to golden to visit family so it's hard to do all that we would like to. The view looking down on the many mountain ranges and out over the columbia valley wetlands is outstanding. the interior of the restaurant is very attractive. The cost of the gondola lift at ~ $30.00/person on top of fairly steep prices for the food makes this event affordable only occasionally.

    The highest dining in Canada had to be experienced as my friend and I were in the neighbourhood. We weren't disappointed. A short stroll from the top of the gondola ride and we were at the Eagle Eye restaurant. Service and food was excellent. We were very luck to have a warm, sunny day so could sit outside with wonderful mountain views.

    Great view and good food. However the staff haven't been well trained in dealing with guests. Servers are not well versed in customer service and the restaurant hosts often leave people standing waiting too long before acknowledging their presence. The washrooms are usually messy with paper towels over the floor...bins near sink aren't emptied frequently and there are no bins near the exit. Also there may be weddings scheduled near the time of your reservation but there is no number to call to find out any info on a particular days schedule or to speak to someone knowledgeable about the restaurant. The Kicking Horse operation is more focused on selling real estate than dealing well with day to day customers resort activities.

    This is the best spot we've experienced for gondola-access dining and views in the Rockies, summer and winter, with spectacular views to the west from the dining terrace. The food is tasty and artfully presented, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. So far, we've visited for brunch and lunch. Our group had a variety of dishes, including the breakfast offering of eggs, special bacon and diced potatoes with a tomato-based hollandaise (delightful, and more filling than you'd guess at first glance!), the pasta, and the chicken baguette (also very tasty), and all enjoyed the cheesecake and the coffee. We'll be back!

    The view from this restaurant is simply outstanding. It takes a 15 minute gondola ride to get there, but well worth the time spent. The food is good quality and service is very good, but you are really paying for the view and that would be hard to beat!

    My wife and I had an outstanding lunch here on Wednesday, 2 April. We drove to this resort near Golden, BC, from Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, and were so impressed with the gorgeous views all along the route. After purchasing a sightseeing pass for the gondola, we arrived at this place and were warmly welcomed and seated at a table with fantastic views of the ski runs and the majestic mountains. Even though we were not skiing that day, we felt at home here. My elk burger was so lean and delicious! Our desserts were memorable and were beautifully prepared and presented. We felt fortunate to be able to dine at such a unique location. Clearly, the staff and management exhibited pride in everything they did. We loved this place!

    Two days skiing at Kicking Horse, the first day we went for lunch at the Eagles Eye as it was my sons birthday. Service was great, food was outstanding (a couple of burgers, potato wedges, salad, beers, and complimentary B Day Cake), view was spectacular! Well worth the stop, if you are in Golden and looking for an out of the ordinary dining experience!

    Overall our experience at the Eagle Eye restaurant was very enjoyable. Our food was delicious, I would highly recommend the smore's dessert!! We had great service as well. It is a higher end restaurant so our bill ran quite high- therefor I would recommend it for a special occasion. The only complaint I have is it was quite windy the evening we went and on our way down we got stuck in the gondola for 40 mins. It was freezing outside. Although its a fancy restaurant-forget your dress coats and wear your parkas!!

    The restaurant was over seated and they placed us in what used to be a walkway. This caused my fiancée and I to be bumped several times by servers trying to fit between us and another table. The temperature was also way to low to not be wearing a sweatshirt. I have dined there before and the experience was amazing so perhaps there is new management that messed it all up.

    We had lunch at Eagle's Eye during our ski trip. My partner ordered the soup and sandwich but it wasn't near enough food so he ordered the Wild Boar Poutine which was very tasty. I had the scallops with polenta, which I'd never had before. The scallops were good but the polenta was dry and bland. I couldn't eat it all because of this so I ordered dessert, molten chocolate cake or something like that, which was yummy. The view is exceptional and is a good reason to stop in and have a drink, if nothing else. There is also an outdoor patio which wasn't open when we were there but it looked like it would be a great spot to enjoy an apres ski drink and snack on a sunny day. Service was also very good - prompt and courteous.

    We had dinner reservations later that evening and we were a little aprehensive due to the poor lunch service. However, Tracy our server who has been there for 11 seasons was absolutely terrific. Not only was she knowledgeble about the food + wine, she was super friendly and even grabed be cup of hot water for my cold hands! She went over and above to make this a dining expereince for me and my husband to remember. We will certainly be back in the summer so we can enjoy the sunset on the patio this time. We just hope Tracy will still be there. My only suggestion for winter dining is try to make a reso closer to sunset, we had ours at 8pm and it was pitch black so there was no view to be seen other than the cat sweeping the hills. Lol.

    Our group of eight made a reservation at EE as a treat during our ski vacation at Kicking Horse. The location on the top of the mountain and gondola ride up were quite unusual as well as the menu which offered a variety of wild game. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a warm mountain lodge feel to it. It was quite busy and although our waitress Marie did apologize several times it took 2.5 hours for our meal. Our group had a variety of dishes cod, wild boar, ravioli, and chicken and not one said any of them were above average. With average entre price of $40+ my advice is visit the EE during the day for lunch when you can enjoy the ambience and scenery at a lower price.

    This restaurant has an incredible view and the food is great. Would have rated it higher but my soup came out and was only sort of warm and not hot and so did my coffee... Probably would have sent it back but it was a long wait and we wanted to get back to our skiing. Food tasted good but was expensive. Had an equally enjoyable meal that was less expensive minus the view at the blackdiamond restaurant at the base of the mountain near the gondola line.

    Real nice Restaurant! Would recommend to any and all to experience. Appetizers were good, main meal could have been hotter ( it was a little on the cool side) In fact it was a little windy at the top and our group was sat by the window in a restaurant that was only 25% full (it was dark outside and no view to speak of) Service was good, although a little disappointed group weren't moved to "inner" table for seating and when we asked about the room temperature. ( I was wearing my winter ski jacket) The overall experience was impacted by the Room temp of the restaurant. Would recommend visiting early to watch sunset and I guess ask to be moved to another table.

    I would only recommend this place for its view. I have eaten here many times and have not had a meal I have enjoyed in a couple of years. On this last visit, the food was so bland. I had a guest with me and he agreed that there was no flavor to his food. The manager came over and asked me about the food and I told him it did not taste like anything. But it was still on my bill. The fries were good and my hot chocolate was good. So, I think they should just go back to basic food like burgers and fries. I would tell people to go only at lunch on a clear day for appetizers and drinks only. I do not think people should have to pay the sightseeing fee to take the gondola up for such subpar food.
