Solid meal but overated. Tourist trap vibe. The halibut was amazing. The lobster was ok - a bit overcooked. Excellent wine list. Dessert (pineapple upside down thingy) not good at all - we didn't eat it and reported that to one of the 3 gentlemen serving us, but it was still on the bill. Tomatoes on caprese appetizer did not seem fresh and local as advertised - maybe the were, but not amazing just ok. Overall just ok and way overpriced.

Phenomenal dinner enjoyed by all in our group of 6. Extremely elegant service, and staff knowledge was top notch.
Chef’s tasting menu was spectacular-
her honed talents with flavor, texture, and fine ingredients were artfully presented.

Take the opportunity to simply close the menu & prepare to be duly impressed!

The wine pairings were expertly chosen by our Sommelier & loved by all. His thoughtful selection & flexibility with different dishes was masterful.

Our visit to the impressive wine cellar to Sabre our Champagne added an extra level of unique decadence to our evening.

Having enjoyed first class dining around the world, we all agree the Bearfoot Bistro is absolutely Michelin star quality.

Servers seemed very confused; we had to swap cutlery between ourselves, they didn’t know who ordered what. We were not offered coffee or tea with our dessert. Food overall was quite salty, but not terrible. Overall, did not feel that $98+ per person was worth the experience.

To be fair, they were very polite and tried their best. We assume that they were working part time for the summer; however, given the pricing of this restaurant, we expected that they would’ve been properly trained.

I had the lobster which was under seasoned. My date had the duck that was rubbery. Seated next to a wooden stairwell where kids kept running up and down. Had a margarita that had no flavour at all. Wouldn't recommend.

Everything we had was amazing. Even my five-year-old nephew's margarita flatbread and mocktail were fantastic.

I had the cauliflower soup which I could live on forever, the vegetarian option which was an Asian-fusion dish of fresh, lightly cooked veggies in a soy-ginger tasting broth with dumplings on the side.

My friend, nephew, and I split the nitro ice cream, which apart from being really fun to watch it getting made table-side, was some of the best ice cream that I've ever had.

Sadly, I was driving, so I could only indulge in one cocktail at the start of the meal, but I could easily work my way through the majority of the menu.

Best fine dining in Whistler. I took my husband here for his birthday along with another couple. This is more than just dinner this was a dining experience. From sabering champagne bottles to Ice room vodka tasting to amazing prepared dinner and the grand finale table side home made ice cream! We stretch the dining time out and it was well worth the 3hr dinner. Cheers we look forward to another birthday celebration. Everyone at table said it felt like their birthday as well :)

I always debate whether the best "occasion" restaurant in Whistler is Araxi or Bearfoot Bistro. Both are great, but I opt for Bearfoot if I want that extra touch of formality and ambience - the ambience is more formal and quiet, whereas Araxi is more casual and noisier.

The food was honestly so tasteless and bland I will never go here again. 300 $ and I had to go home and cook after not only due to the lack of actual food but also becuase it was boring and pathetic for any restaurant, let alone one that rips you off this much. What a joke. Super disapointed. If you have the choice Araxi is 1000000% better if we're comparing quality. Honestly i want my money back. Never again.

Over priced, and trying too hard. Flavour and texture combinations didn't work, and the seafood was overcooked. Service was plentiful -- we were almost never served twice by the same person throughout our meal -- but a bit intrusive / prodding at the outset, which detracted from the laid-back vibe we were seeking

Don't miss the liquid nitro handmade at tableside ice cream. Don't miss the vodka ice room tasting. Ask for a tour of the wine cellar. Amazing wine list, amazing menu, amazing taste, amazing bill. It was a wonderful evening. Ask for Aasha as your server/feeder. I will be back next time I am in Whistler.

Did not live up to the reputation we had heard. The wine list was great but the food seemed pretty average for a high end restaurant. Maybe if we had done the tasting menu we would have a different opinion. The sommelier was great, our waitress was okay, the SAs seemed more professional than our waitress. Overall, I would not return (unless it was just for drinks or vodka tasting).

We love this place, been coming for over 20 years. Food is always excellent. Service is great. If Michelin were to rate it, I would say 3*.
Only problem This visit was the plates used for the hamachi appetizer. My wife’s knife slid into the food and subsequently the fork, each time requiring a fresh utensil. They need to pay attention to the functionality of their plating.
