    Bearfoot Bistro felt like it was trying too hard. The interior and exterior need an update. Odd art choices that seemed about a decade old. The set menu also felt stuffy - why do I need to do three courses? Drinks were good if overpriced. It felt like it was attempting to be something it was not. I would recommend Araxi over this as a high end choice. Both pricey, but Araxi less stuffy and pretentious.

    The description says price is C$51 and over. This is incorrect. Dinner is prix fixe C$108 per person plus C$6 per person for water plus C$5 for bread basket. That’s the minimum. The service is very attentive; so many men in jackets walking around. I guess they have to pay them so the price reflects this. Maybe good for a date. We came with our kids and were shocked by the price.

    Disinterested service .Cheesy upselling by the wait staff given the chefs skills. We expect sommelier to give us actual selection choices instead of confirming “white with fish and red with meat”. Given the scope of the wine list and the self professed culinary experts we expected. We have dined there several times before in previous years. We will not dine there any more.

    We took 2 other couples for a special dinner. We had been to Barefoot for NYEve and were super impressed. But this dinner fell short. Our waiter lacked presence, seemed rushed and set on his opinions as compared to making suggestions based on our guests’ personal tastes. While the food was good nothing stood out as fantastic (our NYE dinner was creative and delicious). The Cod with seafood was underwhelming, especially for the up-charge, but the cauliflower soup was creative (could blossom with additional seasoning). We hope our visit was a glitch, not a trend, and we’ll be back to try again.

    The restaurant is very good, but it charges as if it were a three star Michelin, that’s a rip off, does not have a menu as good as that. It is an experience to know, but not to return. I was celebrating my wedding anniversary and they were not gracious in providing anything special. For lack of finesse and very expensive price I will not be returning and also would not recommend.

    The atmosphere and dessert were wonderful but the main courses left much to be desired and our server was rather crass, using anatomical words to describe one of the wine decanters. It cheapened the dining experience and was not appreciated.

    We were charged a corkage fee for wine purchased at the table. We were told it was normal to charge that and also told in response to a yelp review that it is a tax. This was our 3rd night dinning at area restaurants with average ticket $120.00 per person Canadian and were not charged this. Having read some of the reviews on line it seems to be a trend with this restaurant.

    This was not one of the best restaurants we have been too and certainly for the expense we expected better. From the moment you arrive, you are not made to feel like this is going to be a special event- a symphony of food and wine. Instead, the food is average and a lot on the menu is ‘extra’ cost. The sommelier is good. The cellar is worth looking at and then he can brag how much the last bottle was they sold and how much the person that bought it spent at the restaurant that night. Having come from the other side of the world wanting to try this restaurant, I would say there are better options

    Went to Bearfoot Bistro to celebrate an anniversary. Overall perfect experience. The food was delicious, atmosphere great and our server Ronni A provided us with amazing service. She was very attentive and catered to our needs. My boyfriend had the cauliflower soup, bison and eclair for dinner. I had the oysters, lamb and lime tart. My lamb was the best lamb I’ve ever had. Melted in my mouth. To end of the lovely evening our desserts came with “Happy Anniversary” written on them. Thanks to everyone for making the night special!

Fortunately, the rack of lamb was perfectly prepared and the additional piece of seared fois gras was a surprise. Dessert was interesting but neither my wife or myself finished.

    The service was good but food was awful not tasty and very blend. Not worth the astronomical price for a three course meal. I was definitely let down by the quality. This was my second year trying this place out and Will never go back again. There are so many other options in whistler at reasonable prices. Learned my lesson and won’t be repeating that mistake again

    Excellent food and a fantastic atmosphere. We could not fault the menu, the quality of the dishes and lovely live piano. Absolutely superb. However, it was completely let down by the main hostess. Very cold, unwelcoming and unfriendly. Even the most discerning Mayfair restaurant goer would have been surprised at the lack of sincere hospitality. I must point out, all other servers bringing dishes to our table, particular the dessert host, the cloakroom attendant and reception offered exceptional service and friendliness. One other less significant let down, were the toilet facilities, clearly the restaurant cannot make amends for this due to being located in a hotel. However, the standard of the toilets do not go hand in hand with a 5* and £550 (2 adults and 1 child) restaurant experience.

    Very poor service We have been coming to Bearfoot for the past 6 years and this will definitely be the last time the service from Francis was very poor , no attention to detail he brought the wrong starters and did not even apologise for the mixup , we ordered side dishes which never arrived as he was nor paying attention when he took the order I did not enjoy my main yet was not asked when my 0late was removed why I had hardly eaten anything , he did not even bother to have the courtesy to ask if we enjoyed our food before taking it away we were not offered coffee terrible experience not to be repeated and with staff like Francis good luck for the future as service is paramount for success as much as food quality All 3 courses were served within 45 minutes absolutely ridiculous we weren’t offered coffee and he threw a few chocolates on the table for us at the point of paying the bill which was in excess of $490 for 2 people. Overall shocking dining experience one we will never repeat and we have already advised the hotel that we stay with never to recommend as they had tonight such poor standard for a high end restaurant .
