It's the combination of a familiar flavor with a new technique, a local ingredient given an international twist.
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 both got the chefs tasting with wine pairings and it was one of the best meals of our life. FYI, one of the other best meals of our life was at Barefoot in 2010.
Booked the table 2 months in advance and ended up in what felt like an after thought/overflow area. Food was delicious but a bit over priced.
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.
Good food and service - pricy for reasonably good food but might just be the whistler overhead.
The restaurant had a flood and closed. Never bothered to call us.
Not fun trying to find a last minute reservation on Sat night at Whistler
Very good but also very high end, an experience worth the money (but pricey)
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
Overall it’s a nice restaurant but the value is not there. You’ll enjoy it and be disappointed at the same time.
Wonderful experience, our first trip to the area.It was during a busy weekend with a lot entertaining individuals. Michael from England took great care of us. Ordered Fillet and King crab legs. Michael forgot the 🦀..Didn't matter after our vodka tasting.... An Aussie bloke made a us pretty rad dessert using ice cream and liquid nitrogen table side.. Vodka Room a most..More than once if you got the time. We'll be back 🤠🍸💏🛷🇺🇸
Place is nice but not worth the price , food is ok, service is very good
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!
Not what it used to be.
Mixed up our order
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.
Great time. One of our favourite places to go to when we are up at whistler
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.
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
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 .
Food was certainly tremendous but entire experience way overpriced by a huge margin.
Everything was great except we were seated next to 4 children and they all played on their phone. Shoot up fort night our entire dinner. Ruined our quiet romantic dinner. Food was great . Wine was great!
Fantastic meal! Even the kids enjoyed it. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Made a nice family memory tonight.
Nye dinner was set and over priced. Food was average at best. Sad, because last year it was amazing.
Buen servicio, buena comida
Great evening celebrating family birthdays. Lovely food with excellent service although more of a special occasion location due to cost. Great extras with champagne sobering.
Nice, but not worth the extra money
Very overpriced for what it was — mediocre food masquerading as high end. If the price was lower it’d be OK. The price and pretension made it an abysmal experience.
Lo excepcional fue sin duda el servicio. Los platillos de muy buena calidad y sabor. Tiene un menú poco común, ideal para paladares curiosos.
Excellent service, quality of the foods, the warm of the owner and all people
Excellent ingredient forward tasting menu in a VERY dated, loud space.
Interesting and eclectic restaurant, though the food lacked flavor and was expensive. Maybe another dish would’ve been better but the Ono and cauliflower soup were both under seasoned.
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.
Love this place!!!
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).
