Steaks were cooked to perfection, even the veggies deserve a mention as they were fighting the steak for 1st place. The wine choices for red were top notch. Dessert !! Don’t leave this place without trying the cheese cake or chocolate layer cake as they were both great. Shout out to the Aussie for the great service.

About the restaurant
After an exhilarating day on the mountain, The Velvet Restaurant in Rossland, BC offers an equally soul-enriching dining experience. Pull up a seat at the lounge’s 360-degree bar, grab a stool in front of the bar, or take a seat in the dining room, complete with inspiring views of both the mountainside and the glass-walled kitchen. Wherever you get comfortable, The Velvet’s regionally-led menu and locally-inspired drink menu will ensure you stay that way.

Chef Takashi Harada & team did a great job with this wine pairing dinner. Hope the Velvet will host many more of these. So fun. The chowder was creamy, didn’t skimp on seafood. The salad was light, crisp and fresh. Elk osso bucco was perfection, and the apple tart, delicious. Portions were more than generous. Learned much from wine maker, Jacq from Terralux

I have a very restricted diet currently and I was so happy they could customize my meal so I could dine out. They did a great job as I had no side effects the next day! Yay, thank you so much!
