Dining at the Bearfoot Bistro is more than a meal: It"s a culinary journey.
It's the combination of a familiar flavor with a new technique, a local ingredient given an international twist.

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!

Three course meal
Probably picked the wrong item for appetizer. Had the hamachi sashimi. I get it’s sashimi...but nothing other than fish, thin slices of radish and a few dots of sauce. 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. And that never happens with my wife. I was looking for imagination but backed wi

Food was beautiful but far too rushed. We had to ask for our desert to not come so quickly. No soothed we finished each course the next one was being served.

A little too pretentious and focused on creating an experience. It would better just to have unfussy and good service and great food, without the restaurant telling you how great it is.

Food was OK, but very expensive for what it is

The service was excellent as were the meals. The venue is dated and atmosphere for fine dining” spoiled by the vodka bar.

Experience isn’t extraordinary and doesn’t justify the price.

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 .

This was the third or fourth time I dined at Bearfoot Bistro and I was very disappointed. I don’t mind paying for an outstanding meal, but this was far from it. The food was okay, not great, the prices are ridiculous, they charge for bread (because they bake it in-house; yes, so do other restaurants at which I dine,) and it just really wasn’t memorable except for how much money it cost. I will not be back.

Over-rated and overpriced. Food was good but not spectacular and definitely not worth the price. Service was ok if at times odd. Atmosphere was neither high end, romantic nor casual - didn't fit in any genre. Felt very out-dated. Would not go back. If you are here for the theme park idea of champagne sabering and vodka rooms it's probably good. If you are here for the food and a dining experience, you are better off eating at Araxi or Umbertos (both of which are high end, slightly less expensive, but from many past dining visits are far superior).

This is a place to go for a special meal with one's you love. The food and drinks are amazing, and the service excellent. The only thing of issue (for some people) is the price. We had dinner for 2 and spared no expense... so dinner was around $700 for us. I can't justify it often but for a special night you can't go wrong.

We had the pleasure of dining at Bearfoot Bistro in the off season and on a quiet night. The staff was knowledgeable, well trained and professional but not uptight and stuffy. Took their job seriously but not themselves as they were open, friendly and fun when we opened up our conversation to them. The room was elegant and perfectly lit - even after our candle went out, twice! (inside joke with our server). Live piano played while we dined. Lovely ambience. The food was immaculately executed. Dishes were beautifully designed with complex flavour development, layered, innovative components (caramelized buttermilk was divine) and artistically plated. While everything was excellent, the Saucier was a master. Tasting each component was awesome and then you had the same bite with the sauce. 1 + 1 does not equal 2. It equalled so much more. Hats off to the epic Saucier on Nov 19th, 2018. Still dreaming of the sauce with the Duck Confit....
Our Sommelier, was informative, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Gave us great recommendations off the massive wine list which we both enjoyed. If you get a chance, take him up on the tour of their wine cellar. One of the best dinner experiences we have ever had and making our 25th Wedding Anniversary an evening to remember. Well done, Bearfoot!

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.
