Great service with excellent combinations of food choices. Lamb was perfectly season and served as ordered. Another great meal in the winter cold.

This is a must-go-to dining destination in Whistler Village. First, the drink menu is wonderful and the wine list is great. The food is hearty and complete, perfect for dinner after a day of skiing. My favorite is the B.C. Salmon. My dining partners lived the Filet Mignon and the lamb.

We ordered rib eye steak and Australian lamb chops both in medium rare. The surface of the meats were all burnt. The server told us that it should have the charcoal flavour which is true but not to an extent where it was in edible condition. Please clean your grills accordingly to your food safety plan to avoid having your delicious meats in burnt condition.

Outstanding food. We had a nice table for 2 by the window overlooking the village. I have the BC wild salmon and it was wonderful. My husband had the pasta with sausage and mushrooms. Also delicious, especially the wine glazed whole mushrooms. Yum. Book early to get a table here. It is very popular.

The restaurant is ok, food is just par, nothing to rave about, nothing horrible. Great for after ski day filling meal, price is ok for the large portions. Comfort food, not fine dining. The wine selection is limited.

An amazing place at a great value. The restaurant was packed when we arrived just before 6:00PM. The staff showed great cooperation and worked really well together. The rib appetizer was 'fingerlicking' good. We also enjoyed the kale Caesar salad, the pappardelle with pork shoulder and the small key lime phyllo desert.

4th time or so at 21 Steps. Always amazing. Great service, friendly, good suggestions and casual ambiance. Food is always amazing. A tiny bit loud but that's due to the lovely high vaulted ceilings. Top notch quality food, great flavours, simple and very very tasty. I recommend 21 Steps to anyone heading up to Whistler. Special events or not I make sure they know 21 Steps is a place to enjoy great eats at a reasonable cost for the quality. Great wine list also. Thanks. I'll remain a repeat guest.

Great location and the food was very good. We did have to send back one pasta dish because it was not hot but they took care of it promptly. Service was great and the beer was cold! I would recommend reservations as the place was packed with a waiting line.

I've been vacationing in Whistler for decades. Typically I stay in my timeshare so I have access to a kitchen which is fortunate because most of the restaurants in the Village are quite expensive with so so food. 21 Steps in an exception and it has become our "go to" restaurant when we prefer not to cook. The ambiance is quite nice and if you are seated near a window you have an excellent view of the Whistler stroll. The service always is good as is the food. While not inexpensive (after all you are in a very upscale ski resort), the food is worth the price. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Almost every dish had the same broccoli which was soggy. The rest of the main course was ok but not as good as some of the other restaurants at similar price points in town. The tiger shrimp were miniscule and the waitress kept refilling our waters every few minutes but never asked or refilled our other drinks. Overall the experience was quite underwhelming.

The only annoying thing was that we were a table of 5 but already added 18% gratuity but on the menu it stated it that its automatically added for 6 or more people so were shocked to see they added it to our bill.

We went to 21 Steps twice during our holiday, the first time I made a reservation and we were seated immediately, the second visit we just turned up on the off chance and although they were very busy they found us a table after a 30min wait.
The food here is lovely and the staff are very attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend 21 Steps to anyone, we visited as a family of four with our 2 children and we were all made to feel very welcome.

Unfortunately very disappointing meals. The trout was a little over cooked and a confusion of flavours. The seafood linguine was bland and very short on seafood. So sad as I had booked this restaurant 6 weeks in advance and we had a late booking. I assumed there was going to be amazing food:(

Excellent meal! We loved the garlic chili prawns and salmon cakes to start! As it was Christmas, they had a special turkey dinner entree that he loved, while I got the salmon. And the warm cookie with ice cream for dessert was a great way to end the night!
Love the view from the window tables to the village stroll below!

Came here on Christmas Eve for a nice family dinner and got what we wanted! The waitress messed up our order but was very quick to compensate for the mistake, and stayed cordial + helpful throughout the night. The menu is very versatile and could suit many different dietary restrictions/quirks. I recommend the smoked chicken pasta and winter salad -- they were exceptional. The portion size is also commendable and our food came at a reasonable rate. No complaints there.
The only critiques I would offer is that some dishes are very heavy -- we went home that night feeling a little sick because of how greasy everything was. That said, it tasted satisfactory and the restaurant does what it promises -- modern comfort food. The other thing was that the restaurant was a bit too dark. I understand some appreciate dimmed lighting for the ambience but at times it was difficult to have conversation. Overall though, very cute little place and would definitely go again.
