    We really enjoyed our first dinner at Wild Blue. The food and service were excellent. The only challenge is that the restaurant is very loud. Great evening overall.

    Everything was great except the food portions. At these prices, I don't expect to leave a restaurant hungry. The food was well cooked and presented, but it was a bit on the light side quantity side. Even for a 5 star restaurant.

    Food was amazing. They will give Il Caminetto a run for their money. Service needs fine tuning considering they are a fine dining restaurant. Noise level was loud—struggled to hear the people at my own table. Appreciate the fall tasting menu so locals can enjoy and recommend!

    My wife and I had the $30 four course special and the food was delicious. Three of the four courses offered several options from which to choose. One of the options had an ‘add on’ expense which was reasonable. Our server was congenial and she knew her food products. The noise level could be best described as energetic and enthusiastic. Overall this was a ten out of ten experience.

    Ambiance and service are immaculate. Glassware, serving vessels, utensils are stunning. All staff we encountered were top notch professional. Appreciated the special menu at a great price. They should send their chef to eat at all of Whistler’s top fine dining establishments to get a feel for the benchmark. Food was just okay but overall an enjoyable experience.

    Had the special dining menu along with wine pairing and loved the experience. Know that certain menu choices come with a supplement fee (ie steak + $19.00). Our meals did not disappoint and the wine pairing was excellent. Will definitely visit this new Whistler restaurant again!! Loved the decor as a bonus…

    A lovely dining experience with my 2 companions. We tried several menu options, most of which were excellent. The initial experience of entering the restaurant was interesting, as the outside sign was tiny but the room was large. Nice warm lighting and furnishings. Our table had a view of the kitchen and we could see the staff at work. The server was knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. 2 of us were able to have mocktails that were developed on the spot and were very nice, with a mildly herbal flavour, very smooth mouthfeel, and not too sweet. I had to have a Kusshi oyster to start (in retrospect ordering more would have been better, to try with the 3 sauces provided), and also tried a tuna tataki on brioche as a special appetizer that night. These were both quite well prepared. As a group we tried 3 different vegetable appetizers, including broccolini, beet, and organic salad dishes, all of which were colourful and tasty, and appreciated by our table. I had a provencale fish soup which showcased enjoyable flavours but was too salty. My companions tried the rigatoni and the salmon entrees, both of which were described as excellent. For dessert the Pavlova was not too sweet and was delectable, including the blueberry and lemon curd flavour accompaniments. Overall an excellent night and well worth a visit.

    Excited to try new spot in town. Served us old wine which wasn’t a great start. Oysters were 10/10 steaks were 10/10. Have to sell my Mountian bike to pay for dinner though! Insanely expensive - no locals can afford this place 30% more than Il camineto and that place is the best

    We were excited to try this new restaurant in Whistler. Food was great, service needs some improvement. The interior has a nice warm modern vibe, however it’s extremely loud and not a place I would like to indulge in a luxury such as caviar and be able to enjoy it. Our server seemed to know the menu well, however it was not communicated well to us or recommendations on drinks. When I inquired on a cocktail the response was “ it depends what you like” same with the wine, the wine list is extensive and it would have been nice if the server referred us to the som, and my questions about the wine offerings and pairing were not answered. Martini was not prepared as requested, waited 45min before bread arrived at the table, and missed a whole course we had ordered. The food presentation, plating, explanation, and flavors were spot on. We were invited back to try them again in a few weeks and we are looking forward to experiencing this restaurant again. I will try them again before I recommend my friends visit or we go as a group.

    This is my new favourite restaurant. Period. Neil Henderson’s vision is sheer perfection. In every conceivable way. The space is just spectacular. The decor is warm, welcoming, modern, classic, elegant and magical. Every textile is special. From the gorgeous custom mahogany bar to the mid-century velour furniture to the perfect lighting and friendly personalities. My Brother and I were gobsmacked. Best experience im recent memory.

    I went there with 5 of my friends this past Saturday, and had a great experience. The service was excellent (We had Jaye and she was super attentive and helpful). The ambience and decor was beautiful. And the food was excellent as I'd expect from this group. We ordered the octopus, penne pasta, some sides and a few different steaks. All very good! I am looking forward to dining here again next time I am in Whistler.

    Very beautiful space! Server was really lovely but seemed short staffed (as expected everywhere), he didn’t have any support in serving us food or drinks or clearing plates - he did everything himself for all of his tables. I found this surprising that there was no support for clearing at least. Lots of plates and glasses piled up through the meal as he did his best, and while clean plates were brought for each course, cutlery remained the same throughout 4 courses. Details you’d expect on point for this caliber of restaurant. The food was incredible up until our last course, we had a few starters and specials and a pasta, cocktails were also delicious and excellently presented. The last course was well cooked, but just bland and not exciting (the salmon) and the mushroom side was just not good (undercooked/almost not cooked at all, not enough seasoning, and not good flavor - the balsamic was just acidic tasting and the Gruyère was just a couple unmelted pieces placed on top), we mentioned this and they comp’d the mushrooms which was nice. Dessert was just ok (pavlova). Look forward to trying again and seeing how round 2 goes sometime!
