 (San Francisco)·Dined 2 days ago

Disappointed that we had a 5:45 reservation that we arrived on time for and our party of 4 was wedged between a large party and wood column. Our chairs were backed to two other parties. Have dined here regularly and always made an advance reservation. Food is solid and good value for dining in the village.

Food was good, but we were very rushed, in as much as my appetizer plate was still in front of me as they brought our main course. Basically cattle in, cattle out!

Changed our reservation a few days prior from 2 ppl to 3, and when we arrived they had no recollection of it. I am about 95% sure our service after that was affected. Saw our waitress twice, people who sat down after us and ordered after us got their food before we did and were gone before the waitress even had the nerve (after over an hour) to tell us that it shouldn’t be too much longer. Umm? The food was excellent and I think it was fair priced but the service we got was absolutely horrendous for such a highly spoken about restaurant

Worst meal we had in Whistler, had better pub grub. Both our meals would have been acceptable if your 95 year old grandmother had served it up. Awful mush. Ordered the short ribs which featured leeks & mushrooms, all we got was fatty beef on mush potatoes. Couldn’t eat it. Prawns were drowned in concentated garlic. Only upside was waitress was lovely.

Fantastic meal. Highly recommend the fried goat cheese appetizer. However the bacon wrapped filets were disappointing - poor quality meat that was entirely overcooked.

So happy we had a reservation, there was approx an hour wait when we arrived at 7pm. Our server was very friendly and informative, we never felt rushed even though the place was very busy. We ordered the Lamb chops and the Stuffed Pork Schnitzel, both were delicious. Real comfort food, unique cocktails and a good wine selection. We'll be going back, for sure!

Don’t say the food is freshly cooked when it is served cold within 2o minutes. In addition, two out of the five got quite ill.

I have passed on our experience to our driver & hotel not to recommend you and they said they had heard it before.

You must get a reservation to eat at 21 Steps. It is a great restaurant in the heart of Whistler Village. They open at 5:30 in the evening and immediately fill every seat. The service is excellent. All the food is great. I had lamb chops, we had a fried goat cheese appetizer and the braised pork belly. Amazing!. Great specialty drinks, great wine list. Everything at 21 steps is great, great great.
