One expects a decent experience at a Four Seasons - even in the casual restaurant. We got more than expected with this team. Very appropriate experience from a COVID time frame (i.e. protocols and distance), a great staff and solid kitchen. We will be back! Thanks to the team at The Handle Bar!

Fun “bar” with activities such as roll the dice shots. But the chef must be shared with the Westbank Grill, as the food was excellent. I had the Salmon, and it was the best I’d had.

Jacob was terrific server and great precautions on safety. Food very good, but value not great. For example, I’ve never seen a bottle of wine be more expensive than ordering four individual glasses of the same wine? Overall, would still go back

I will be blunt. This is the first time ever I have been disappointed in a Four Seasons restaurant. I was excited to go but won’t go back. To be fair, overall it was fine but I expected better and it should have been better.

First, we were shown to our table and both the booth and floor were covered with crumbs like wild pack of three year olds had just been there and a napkin was still on the floor under the booth. The hostess was horrified and cleaned and vacuumed it but she shouldn’t have had to do that as it should have already been done.

Second, pet peeve but a standard wine pour is 6 ounces. They pour a 5 ounce pour. Yes, in a bar that has an entire whisky menu and a set of bar rules that encourage over drinking but apparently only for non wine drinkers. That should be disclosed on the menu rather than being an unpleasant surprise. I always feel like the restaurant is try to stretch a bottle of wine too far with such small serving sizes (unless required by law).

Third, ordered a salad and added salmon. The salmon was less than the size of a deck of cards. Seriously. I’m not a big eater and that wouldn’t have filled me up ever. Tasted fine but not an entree salad at lunch or dinner. I was told this was the standard size.

On the other hand, the other members of my party enjoyed their burgers and the sweet potato fries were great. The sweet potato fries serving size would have served at least 4 people, which I found ironic that the side was in such sharp contrast to my entree.

Overall, everyone was very nice and food was decent but not what I was hoping for, especially at a Four Seasons restaurant.

Food, service and ambience was fantastic. It is spendy but worth it for the fun people watching and great view of the ski mountain activity. Very lively and a high spirited atmosphere.

This may be the first review I have ever written although I done out often and have had very good and very bad and very good and service. I only write this now because of the exceptional experience that I had.

There was a small deviation in how long it took to deliver my meal. Although I had a noted this to my server/ barman he had not been able to communicate my concern because at the same moment the restaurant in the guise of the general manager self identified this as an issue and addressed this in a most generous way. The food, when it did arrive was perfectly presented, the protein was correctly cooked and the sides were hot as I would expect. I am not staying at the four seasons (next time I will be).

Horrific
Came here 2 years again and it was amazing.
Last night, was awful. Food wasn’t great and we had the rudest waitress we have ever had (everyone in our group of 5 was dumbfounded).
Such a shame, we were looking forward to going back and it was the biggest waste of money ever

Weird, cavernous room with zero ambience and a very odd choice if theme and decor by Four Seasons. Needs to be gutted and redesigned. Food was pretty good, but JH has lots of good food elsewhere.

This is clearly a terrific apres ski bar, but for dinner? Not so much. On the plus side, the service couldn't have been better - terrific all the way around. But in general, the restaurant had all of the cost and none of the ambiance of a Four Seasons dining experience. Have a Jenny Lake Lager after skiing but try dinner upstairs.

Our food was adequate and no more than that. We had the beet salad and arugula salad to start, the beef burger and ramen as main courses. All were just okay. Loads of salt on the arugula salad (and I like salt). Skipped dessert. Two servers helped us out. Our main server was fine if a bit scripted; the other had a nearby table and pitched in a few times as when she saw our empty plates and cleared them, and she was outstandingly warm and cheerful. We had a booth for two in the main room and the noise level was great at a 6:30 seating; there's also a smaller second room that feels like Siberia, like an afterthought.

Kinda went downhill since the past few years. Prices seem way higher, but portions seem way smaller, especially the burgers. Service, even when not so busy, is slow and staff seems like they're just waiting to go home. Still good food, but don't expect much.
