Diner by the lake
Food was really good. The $31 menu is great value. The view was really relaxing and beautiful (rainy evening by the lake).

Enjoyed the "Dine In Whistler" experience. The set meal was very good on all counts and courses.
Service shows well trained and experienced staff.
We'll make this one a repeat.

Aura is located in a beautiful setting with tasteful decor, relaxed atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. The menu has a good menu selection, not too many as to overwhelm, just about right. The dishes we chose were very good. The only complaint I have is the dessert menu which I think could include more familiar choices as it is difficult to imagine what some of the choices are. The home-made ice-cream was delicious.

Taste Treat for the Pallet
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Aura. We started with the octopus salad and the herb risotto then mains of veal cheeks and pork t-bone, finished off with chili chocolate cake. Every dish was a taste treat to the pallet. The combinations of taste were some of the best we have experienced at any restaurant. We will definitely be back whenever we are in Whistler.

Great find in Whistler
Attentive service, beautiful lake view, delicious food, this restaurant is a step above the touristy places in the village. The three course menu gives you a variety of food to taste. The chili chocolate cake was unique. Worth the short drive there.

Summer Lakeside Dining
The service here was very good with complimentary amuse bouche and after dinner treats. Delicious food and good advice on wine from our French waiter

Good but mixed experience
We had a reservation this past Saturday. Arrived and 2/3 of the restaurant was empty. When we asked for a different table near the window the host said "it would be a few minutes." Two such tables were visibly empty and fully set up so this was odd.
Food was good. My lamb confit was exceptionally flavorful. My wife's bison was also very good.
More on the service - we ordered another glass of wine with dinner. it didn't arrive until after we had finished our mains (20+ minutes). Staff seemed quite disorganized - walking rapidly around, looking stressed, talking in hushed tones with the guy who appeared to be the front of house manager. This same manager bought us after dinner drinks to make up which was a good recovery.

Fabulous 70th birthday celebration
We celebrated my husband's 70th on Sep 13, 2013 & were absolutely delighted with the quality of food, fantastic service & lovely ambiance. We requested a quiet table & were seated at an intimate spot by the window with a gorgeous view of lake. Waitress (Rebecca) was delightful & very attentive. We chose $44 set menu & had most sumptuous oysters on half shell, the wild salmon main (which also exceeded our expectations) & then delicious panacotta for dessert. Portions were ample & we were comfortably full. As special gesture, we were offered 2 glasses of sparkling wine. Nice touch ! We will highly recommend the Aura to all our friends & will definitely be back. It was a lovely birthday setting for my husband's big milestone.

A great dining experience again
We made a point of dining at Aura again while visiting in Whistler, and they did not disappoint. Each dish was a taste experience in itself from the salad, to the risotto, to the bison (awesome) and the chocolate cake to finish it all off. We walked from the Whistler village, it took us about an hour but it was a nice walk. The hotel shuttle provided our ride back (this is a nice service). We will be sure to visit Aura every time we visit Whistler.

Five Hours Flew By!
The $30 5-course meal offer seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't! Every course was delightful and the service was seamless. Truly a memorable dining experience and a warm, understatedly elegant room. My new friend and I felt completely at ease and we were shocked when we realized it was after midnight as we departed. The staff never made us feel as though we had overstayed our welcome. I loved the Early Gray tea-infused pots de creme au chocolat...smooth as silk!
