    We were immediately impressed with the high end wine list, many of which may be ordered by the glass. The menu, while appearing to be simple contains a wonderful assortment of fresh and complex dishes. The sea scallops with bone marrow accompaniment were lovely, and the rabbit rigatoni was very delicious. Highly recommend trying a cheese flight to finish off your meal, and your wine. This is a wonderful place for people who are willing to try something new, or want to enjoy a new twist on an old favorite. If you are lucky enough to be there in nice weather the patio is a beautiful place to sit, and is much quieter than inside the dinning room. Friendly staff, with a high level of knowledge make this a wonderful place to dine.

    The decor was really nice and airy, food was fantastic and had a nice mix of lighter choices and full meal options. Our server was fantastic but service times were really slow, especially considering that there were only a few other tables.

    We happened to be there on a Wed. evening for dinner and both ordered the prime rib special which we both enjoyed. The salads were fresh and a good size. I have allergies and the staff was good about substituting my salad and it was delicious. The prime rib was a generous portion. I had made an online reservation earlier that day which was convenient because the restaurant was closed when I called. I requested a quiet table as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. One of the servers had picked flowers from the outside patio and placed them in a vase for us as a centre piece - it was a lovely surprise. Thank you, we had a great time!

    The food was unbelievable and priced within reason for a high end restaurant. The wine I though was a bit on the over priced side as they range around the 18-20 per glass for 6 oz. the house wine was available though for 12 $ per glass. I highly recommend the stuffed figs, side of harvest vegetables, steel head fish and poached pear! Amazing!

    Had to take an early reservation since there was nothing available for the time we wanted but once we got there the place was half empty. The server was less than friendly in fact quite surly. It was advertised as Fine Casual however was really meant for families. Was way overpriced for what you got. Wouldn't recommend it for adults / couples looking for a not too expensive dinner in Whistler. The food however was quite good but was overshadowed by the overall experience.

    This restaurant is situated inside the Westin by the shops close to Whistler village. The restaurant has plenty of space and is set for groups as well as smaller parties. Our party had 3 of the pizza's that were cooked in the stone pizza oven and tasted absolutely magical. The wine list was impressive as was the cocktail list. This restaurant offers something for everyone in the family.

    Good new addition to Whistler. Steaks are very good but not amazing. Pizzas are fine but not true Neapolitan as advertised (the pizza oven is fueled by gas, not wood).

    we were anxious to try this spot because of the wine program and interesting menu unfortunately, service was inattentive and disinterested the food was okay but not special the wood fired pizza crust was institutional - not chef created the eggplant spread provided with the flat bread app tasted like bottled pasta sauce the worst problem came with the oysters...we were offered two varieties. when delivered to the table, a different server brought what they had, not what we ordered. to make matters worse, the bivalves were room temperature the room, the wine equipment and the overall concept have potential - but the staff is under trained and not fully invested in the experience.

    Host seating was not done well, lack of acknowledgement upon arrival. Service was slow and disappointing. Not prepared at all for speed of service. It took us 1 hour to get our food from the time we ordered it. Our server came by once to tell us they were plating up our food. 30 minutes later we had to flag the manager down and ask her where it was. We let management know there was an issue and they didn't do anything about it. We even let the concierge know and they didn't do anything but encourage us to write this review. We highly recommend you go to one of the other restaurants in the area. As part of our stay at the hotel we had free breakfast each morning, the service never got any better.

    There were 6 of us. The server was very nice but the service was slow. 4 of us ordered meat dishes that we were happy with and 2 ordered pizza that had great topping but the pizza crust was tough to chew. The highlight was the truffle mac and cheese and I have already been back for more. The wine selection and single glass serving options are fantastic and we enjoyed the merlot from Burrowing Owl.

    I was very excited as a local to try this new restaurant. Everything seemed to fall short - my quinoa salad was undercooked and my boyfriends soup was so small it took him 4 bites to eat it all... Apart from the manager i didnt really recieve any other service. For $12 that's highway robbery! The wine list was fantastic, and it was great to see whistlers first enomatic wine system. Will definitely try again once the crazy Christmas period is over, as I believe this restaurant does have great potential.

    Of the four notes out we had at whistler this was our least favorite - they could use more help as our poor waitperson was running most of the night resulting in long waits for drinks and food. The menu was creative and several of the dishes were good, and a couple just ok.

    We dined at this restaurant as a family of four - two adults and two young adults. The food was phenomenal. The service was not. Our server took our order and then disappeared. Someone else served us - I had to get up three times to ask for steak knives, more water, and condiments. I also had to ask for the bill. For the price of the menu items I expected much more attentive service. This is a fine dining steak house, not a cafe.

    This was a good restaurant, but we thought that it was going to be fancier. We are looking for a replacement for La Rua, so having people walking through the restaurant in their bathrobes, on the way to the pool, didn't really do it for us. Food was good - creative, but not exquisite. Service was good, but not exquisite.

    We have dined here a few times now during our visits to Whistler. The food has never disappointed, everyone is genuine and friendly and our server Pauline during our last 2 visits was superb. She really pays attention to details and puts in the extra effort in trying to make our dining experience seamless with our two little boys. The kids were spoiled with a fine dining dish (unlike some other restaurants who obviously puts less time and effort into kids meals) as were my husband and I - we will definitely be back again!

    Dining rooms in hotels generally do not meet expectation. Our dinner here during Whistler's dine in was no different, in spite of a menu that sounded interesting. We were the only table for dinner on Thursday evening! Service by the lone waiter was attentive and courteous. Too bad the kit hen staff did not take upthe challenge to wow us with their cooking skills. The meal did not stand up to the anticipation of the menu.
