Woodlands Rooftop was a creative, delicious, and all-around special experience. The whimsical decor, live music, and service did not disappoint the level of hospitality that the Fairmont is known for.

The only negative was we had to ask if we had a server after 15 mins of sitting with no service and the entire time she was very scarce. Aside from that everything was incredible

I enjoyed the quick turn around, no waiting hours for a meal, i also liked that you could try everything. Not a fan of the watermelon tind salad but it was nice to try something new!

We lucked out in finding this pop up patio restaurant at the Fairmont. The space usually used for Weddings and receptions has had to be repurposed due to COVID, thumbs up to the management and catering group for their outside of the box thinking. We were a party of 3, enjoyed all the food that was served, the salads, meats, vegetables and the desserts. It is all served family style so if you’re not a steak eater but like chicken then the choice is yours from the large serving tray. We were there on a Saturday night and enjoyed the music of Dave with his guitar, loved the way he interacted with the patrons. The serving staff were very attentive, from the hostess who greeted us, we were late 30 minutes and we had called in to notify them of our delay, no problem. The hostess was apologetic that she couldn’t seat us right away even though we were the late ones. The mgr came around, Tarun, and introduced himself to insure our evening was enjoyable and if there were any issues he could deal with them. There were of course no problems as our server Nanette Luna was very hospitable and wanted to make sure we were enjoying the meal, setting and music. There was a wide range of patrons, young families, couples, large and small groups. The pop up is only active on a Friday and Saturday and it sounds like they may add a day or two on long weekends or as demand dictates. A wonderful evening with a diverse menu, staff that cared about your experience and a venue that felt simple and not pretentious even though we were at the Fairmont. Not a lot of tables and limited seating means you have to plan and make a reservation or else you will miss out.

What a fun experience! We had beautiful weather that evening, so it definitely added to the ambience. Food was beautifully presented, abundant and delicious to eat. Service was great but not intrusive. Our only negative (and it really isn't that bad) was the peach meringue dessert - too much sticky meringue and no plate to displace it to. We have eaten at most places in Whister, but being on the rooftop eating comfort food with live music - wonderful!

Celebrated a birthday at Woodlands- 6 ppl at our table. Felt rushed at our 8:00 seating. Live music ended almost after we arrived. Small narrow tables and all the food arrived at once- very hard to fit all the food and be able to pass it around family style. Food was tasty but the desserts were a disappointment- overly sweet and we barely touched them. Atmosphere was nice- kind of like being at a wedding. Very casual and laidback vibe.

It was a great experience. The food was excellent, and the kids loved dancing to the live music. The only thing is it got quite chilly and would have preferred the tent to be heated.

We had a great experience at Woodlands. The food was good, and huge portions, we brought a lot home. The service was what you would expect at a Fairmont, and the live music was so great! During the pandemic we have really missed live music so it was a real treat.

We had reservations for 830pm, but did not get seated until about 915pm. The people seated before us did not "finish their dessert on time." By the time we sat down, we felt rushed to eat. I probably wouldn't go to this event again. Luckily the food was really good and the staff seemed really nice.

The experience at Woodlands Rooftop was incredible. We were greeted quickly, seated within 10-20 mins of our reservation at a great spot, and though there was a bit of a hiccup with the communication between the host and our server which delayed our initial contact and order, the entire team made sure to apologize and did everything they could to make up for it.
The food is unreal - the value you receive for the cost is amazing. Highly recommend a visit if you're in the Whistler area, I know we will definitely go back if we return to town before the pop-up is gone!

Non existing service - couldn't get water to start, no one came to took our drinks order. Manger finally came by and took our order. Then NO SERVICE at all afterwards... We had to wait over 20 minutes to get our plates cleared, we end up getting the manager AGAIN.

Then another 15 minutes to just get the bill (we asked for dessert and bill at the same time), we were there for over 2 hours... We keep looking for the waitress, who ignored us.

Steak / ribs were overcooked, Chicken was raw in the middle. Everything was cold.

Tons of food for the price - I thought you only picked one salad one protein and one dessert... nope... you get everything!!! You’ll have leftovers for sure. Server was very friendly. Cool vibe and live music was AWESOME. Do it. Just do it.
