  • Great food, service a little off...

    Dined on 1/18/2014
    We had a wonderful dinner, tastes were excellent but the service was off as we found ourselves clearing and stacking plates that were left to clutter the table. Also needed to ask for a server when our bevies needed topping and quality checks were lacking. There were a few larger tables that seemed to be taking all of our servers time and we felt a little ignored but would still go back the next time we are up.

  • Just met expectation

    Dined on 1/17/2014
    I had the steak dinner. The steak was comparable to The Keg or Ricks Grill. It wasn't better. Both The Keg and Ricks Grill did something a little special to make it memorable. The Kettle did nothing. Basically it was get in and get out. Even through we let it be known we were there for my wife's 30th Birthday. Being an open concept area, it was very noisy. The service we got met expectation of any typical restaurant. But definitely did not exceed expectations. I expect a steakhouse to 'wow' me a little. Overall I would compare this restaurant to Earls or Milestones. Not a steakhouse.

    Very few menu choices with little to choose from if not having steak. Not really a family restaurant - nothing on the menu for kids. Pork Belly dinner was so salty we couldn't eat it.

    We felt ignored by our waitress initially . She left us way too long with our wine before taking our food order. We had to track her down and the restaurant was half empty.but once we got that straightened out it was very good. The food was good, I wouldn't say great. We had chateau briand,which was cooked perfectly, but I found it not as spectacular as I expected. All in all it was a very positive dining experience. We had a lot of fun and next time I'm up in Big White I would definitely go back.

    Limited wine selection, especially in whites. Server did not know the special soup of the day, even though our group was one of the last to be seated during the evening. Restaurant boasts fine dining experience yet the less-than ordinary cutlery seem to originate from the adjoining ski day lodge cafeteria. Sable fish was charred from the outside yet undercooked inside; steak was nearly rare and luke warm (requested medium); turkey special was the only dish that was well executed.

  • High Tea

    We went for high tea with 2 moms and 4 kids. What a nice surprise when we got the bill to find that kids ate free. That made the tea a great deal. We had scones with two kinds of jam, about 6 varieties of tea sandwiches, and three different desserts. We went away full. Oh, and the tea was free trade and organic. A great experience after a day of skiing. Hoghy recommended. A highlight of my ski trip.

    Third time at Big White and the first time at Kettle Valley for a meal. We had been here for receptions on our previous visits. The space is rather open with a cool unfinished feel. The service was very friendly which helped to warm the space. I was looking for a local wine and not being local, was unfamiliar with the list. The server was excellent in recommending a good wine. Our apps were delicious soup (beef and barley) and salad (arugula and frizze with beets &goat cheese). Our daughters had the beef filet which was very good. My husband had the Arctic char which he loved and I had the duck done 3 ways which was very interesting & tasty but almost too much food. A bit pricey but the food quality was spot on.

    Lovely high tea experience - such a treat on the mountain. Couldn't tell if the scones were freshly made on site (I should've asked), but they would have been nicer served slightly warm as I found them a bit hard and salty (but tasty, nonetheless). The savoury treats were tasty. It would have been nicer to have petit fours that were actually little cakes, biscuits or pastries, instead of just hard chocolates that were mostly left untouched. Overall, I did enjoy the experience and the food. Thanks!

    Good service, great wine, but the food was very bland - - all 5 of our steaks were tasteless and the veggis bland. Too bad -- we had high hopes...
