I guess going here later in the evening and expecting it to be an upscale place because of the prices was an error. The waitress bought out our Miso soup after we had already finished most of our other items from our order and it was cold. This was a Friday night at 9:30....they were supposed to be closing, but there were still a lot of tables doing the "show" of the grilling and chopping...if the sushi was any indication I would never pay $50 for a stir fry, no matter how entertaining it is. yikes another Whistler let down of expensive prices, and crappy food.

As far as Teppanyaki goes, the food was good, but the show aspect was rushed and lacking. There was no interacting, no funny tricks on people and the fried rice isn’t even prepared tableside. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Not the experience that we want. Neither the quality, poor seasoning. It is not the quality we think. Bad seasoning, a lot of show on the part of the cook and we need to send our clothes to the laundry.

Our party of 10 was looking for dinner options while visiting Whistler. We thought Teppan Village would be a great option as it was social and some our group had never been to a Teppan restaurant. The only thing that would have increased our rating from 4 stars to 5 stars is if the fried rice and dessert were included. For those of us that had been to Teppan previously, we were used to having the fried rice prepared in front of us and also everyone being served either sherbert or green tea ice cream. Overall the food was delicious and the service great.

So the positives, the food is very good and the showmanship and spectacle adds hugely to the atmosphere. The booking was easy and the restaurant was flexible that we arrived a little early. The staff were very pleasant, sweat and genuine.

There were some negatives, and to be honest, most of it you can put down to the front of house being junior/less experienced and probably here for the skiing rather than being skilled at waiting. First off, we did arrive a little early and they were happy to seat us early. However, they seemed hesitant to ask another group to move over one seat so we could be seated as well. A more confident waitress would have successfully negotiated that adjustment. They could make no recommendations about the wine (as they'd never tasted any of them and weren't trained to explain them to patrons); didn't know what okonomiyaki was and wouldn't ask if the chef knew; didn't know the provenance of the food; wanted to serve out mains before our starters as another customer was ready. In the end there were multiple little things we tracked with good humour.

So in summary, go for a good experience, lovely food, good humoured staff, but accept that service may be a little bit haphazard.

The teppanyaki experience is very good. Food was flavorful, and the ingredients were fresh and savory. Cocktails were good, but could have a bit more alcohol (seemed more like a refreshment to us). Staff was courteous, and diligent, and our teppanyaki chef was very skillful and funny. We would repeat.

The whole spectacle of having food cooked in front of you finishing with a tapping stick display was awesome. The food was tasty but I did feel was a little pricey. I also felt we were rushed when taking our order as everyone at the cooking station has to have ordered before the chef can start cooking. We ordered some sparking water & when finished asked if we wanted another bottle. We said no but we would like some tap water which they never bought to us. They were keen to get us out & have the next sitting come through. If you want a leisurely meal then don’t dine here. We were in & out within the hour.

Atmosphere was very typical of Japanese- style steak house. I will say to beware on a holiday weekend because there were kids ( small children)
at every group table.
Fine for everyday dining but not what I wanted as part of my experience on
Valentines Day.
