Food was OK. Service was a bit scattered. Had to wait 20 minutes for simple dessert which had been sitting on the bar for sometime before being brought to the table. Noisy place.

Was able to taste a favorite appetizer, foie gras. Isn't in tge nenu, but a friend who had eaten in Salted Vine before, told me to ask my server. If there's in the kitchen, tge chef will prepare a very good appetizer portion.😄

This is definitely the best restaurant in Squamish. Mostly farm to table with a top notch cocktail menu. Most importantly, easy to get lots of vegetables that taste delicious.

The space is crowded with very little noise absorption; the music goes from jazz to rock; the tables are way toooo small for a shared plate restaurant and are packed in a very tiny space, not like a quaint French bistro style, but more like we need jam as many people as we can in a small space; food and service is excellent for the most part; if you’re looking for an evening out with friends over fine dinning, look elsewhere; not intimate enough to have a decent conversation as it’s too loud even with the restaurant not being full; I don’t mind paying the prices in the menu but the overall experience was so not worth the price.

Coming from a scenic drive, we visit your restaurant for the second time.
It's nice to wind down, relax and eat good food.
However my first impression was better, especially was I disappointed from the the Pork Belly.
On my first visit I was very impressed with this dish and was looking forward to this. The meat should have been hot and a bit crispy, instead of serving it just warm.
My suggestion; consider serving some small fresh bread slices & butter at dinner time before the meal arrives. (without charge) Most restaurants do this.

There are nice options—but nothing much for children — but we found it a bit unnecessarily snooty. Small portions. Barley risotto was a bit blah. The cod was really nice but one could imagine a bit more generosity with the sides. The fries with the Parmesan and rosemary were EXCELLENT. Pricey, overall. I don’t think we will go back.

We heard this was a great restaurant and finally had a chance to try it out on the way to whistler. Parked right outside and since we were early were seated straight away. We had a starter and 2 mains a veggie side and dessert. All were perfectly presented and delicious. I would highly recommend and go back for sure , great way to miss the rush of whistler and get better food at a more reasonable price.

We visited this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. It was a good choice. The food was great; my husband had the bucatini with squid and chorizo and he said it was delicious. I had the pork belly with a side order of fresh vegetables , again it was very good.
We have already recommended The Salted Vine to friends and we will return ourselves.

Excellent food starting with sesame seed bread with lemon oil, to the cheesecake for dessert! We think the PEI oysters are worth the 50cents extra than the BC ones. Pork belly & wagyu beef were tasty, however we found the spicy cauliflower too spicy. Also a great wine list, would definitely go back.

Very friendly and professional service. We had no problem making a reservation on Saturday afternoon for that evening. Appies, dinner and cocktails were delicious! So happy we’d found out about this place.
If they were situated in a slightly more scenic location with patio views, they could easily charge more.

Great food, amazing owners, nice atmosphere but what a mix of people. Dressed up people, people in shorts, tuques and baseball caps as well as young babies even at late dinner hours. We were fine with it but I am sure many diners were hoping for a better balance. I understand casual is the new in but come on people dress up a little.

We stopped in after a long day of climbing and were immediately welcomed by the staff. We had several cocktails, oysters, the burrata salad, wagyu, pork belly, and panna cotta with rhubarb and every dish was perfectly seasoned and delicious! The bill was surprisingly low at the end of the night too. Definitely recommend to everyone now!

The Salted Vine was everything we expected from the reviews we read online and got from our friends. The food was outstanding and the portions we fair despite being told to expect small plates. The restaurant is quite loud (could use some sound proofing), that's unfortunate. The service could improve. It took a long time for us to get our drinks. Our table wasn't ready despite having made a reservation. Despite being lovely, the servers were quite slow and seemed confused. That being said, we would go back for the food in a heartbeat. The cocktails were also quite delightful. A must-try in the Sea-to-Sky corridor!
