Great service from Brandon throughout. Sadly the kitchen served cold dishes to some of us and that let him down a bit!
He handled it brilliantly and the cold food was rightly deducted from the bill. The Appetizers were the best part of the meal.
The trip in the cat was spectacular.

Ambiance and experience were great. Food should have been much better. Flame and Terra Bistro were much better restaurants.

Excellent and high quality food. Good service and very nice ambience. The ride to and from the restaurant in a snow-cat adds to the experience. Very extensive and astonishing wine list, but difficult to find any reasonable priced bottles.

Enjoyable experience as a whole. When you tie in the Gondola and snowcat rides it is a great adventure for the kids too.
They do well catering for food issues.
Attentive in a nice way. Knowledgable Sommelier. Varied menu choices. Something to suit most everyone.

Cool experience and something to impress a significant other. This was our second time, but the novelty was gone.
