The food and service was amazing! But the whole experiance took way too long. We arrived at 7:30pm and didn't get to eat our dinner until 9:30pm. We were starving and didn't have enough time to enjoy other festivities that we planned.

We decided to spend Thanksgiving in Whistler this year, and despite searching high and low, the only recommendation I could find online for a place to eat Thanksgiving dinner was The Wildflower! The menu online was a couple years old, but figuring it would be pretty much the same experience, I made a reservation- the only time they had available over two weeks in advance for the 5 of us was 8:30 pm, so reserve early to avoid disappointment, or overly hungry tummies!! The restaurant was decorated beautifully, and the service was exactly what we have come to expect from Fairmont properties. The food was delicious, and the kitchen certainly didn't skimp on the turkey! The only cons to our experience was the price and the amount of food- it was almost $60/person, for which I would have expected a starter course, but there was only the main. As well, for anyone who is not a fan of pumpkin pie, there were no other dessert options included. However, overall it was an amazing experience, and doubly nice in that I didn't have to cook or clean up- or deal with massive amounts of turkey leftovers!

Visit to Whistler happened to start with Thanksgiving. Stayed at another hotel in the Village Centre area. I'd never celebrated Thanksgiving in Canada, and decided a week ahead to make a reservation and walk over to Upper Village to have the Fairmont's featured Thanksgiving dinner. Took a late reservation, but the house was busy and full. Staff were cordial, professional, good-natured, and accommodated me well even though I was dining alone (they placed me at a table for 4). Servers were attentive, asking whether I'd like some reading material (I declined, it felt odd to sit and read. I wish The Fairmont still offered Wifi to their President's Club members, even when they're not staying at the hotel).
The server who worked with me was patient, good-hearted, pleasant and helpful. The food was temperature appropriate, good flavors that were familiar yet some nuances (it's Thanksgiving, I expect Turkey/Dressing/MashedPotatoes/CranberrySauce but can handle a bit of creativity). Mashed potatoes had substance--not fluffy, it could have been from a home kitchen. Starter was a _delicious_ bread with butter, interesting salts on the butter. I chose a beer for the meal, it was good and a healthy portion. With pumpkin pie (nice touch of whipped cream and a piece of chocolate), I asked for peppermint tea--a great tea, as I'm accustomed to having at Fairmont.
The restaurant's interior is themed for the mountains and the Canadian West, very nice. I understand they'll redecorate a bit, I will be interested to see what they choose.

My sister, husband and I were visiting the Fairmont Château Whistler for the first time. We had a lovely, relaxing dinner at The Wildflower Restaurant and returned for the delicious breakfast buffet in the morning. (I will be putting bits of goat cheese in the omelettes I make at home from now on!)

Next time we visit the Château we are aiming for a warmer day to enjoy the beautiful outdoor seating area of The Wildflower (check out the photo of it from our 10th floor room)... the water feature is a pretty little waterfall!

Very nice- I had the char and my husband had the bison on the recommendation of the waiter. Bread with herbed butter was excellent could have had a bit more
Meal was nicely prepared and presented and hot.
Waiter Martin was very friendly and attentive- lots of fun - he really enhanced our experience
Would recommend and would visit again.

The food and service were great, as well as the nice location on the patio. Unfortunately we were sat by a table of 10 of the loudest people I have ever heard. They sat by us through appetizers and I was just about to get us moved when they finally left. We did the sharing menu, a great deal for the money and amount of food you get. The seafood was excellent, even the octopus which we normally would not be a fan of. Wine pairing that was recommended was perfect too.

We love what The Wild Flower has to offer overall. The service is always wonderful, and the food delicious! The ambience is warm and cozy, and great for a nice meal with family. The Cioppino is one of our favourites here, and the kid's salmon is a nice healthy and hearty option for the little ones. Another excellent experience at The Wild Flower tonight!

We enjoyed the service, atmosphere, and dinner so much that we booked a second reservation before we left from our first meal. Mack was our server both times and he was amazing. I was very happy when I found out that Mack would be serving us a second time. I was very impressed that many of the selections on the menu could be made to accomodate my gluten intolerance. I especially enjoyed their gluten free rolls with chive oil butter. I had the Bison Flat Iron Steak when we sat indoors and it was very tender and flavorable. We sat outdoors the second time right next to a beautiful waterfall and ordered from a family style menu for two that could probably feed four hungry adults. We took home leftovers and bypassed the included dessert because we were too full.

Where we sat was great, a nice view at the window. Staff was excellent, top notch service. Appetizer (seafood chowder) was ok in taste, and only just slightly warmer than room temperature (very disappointing). We told the manager as he came by each table, and he took care of us. Waiter was great to interact with. Our main courses (I had bison steak, she had chicken) were very good, up to the standard I'd expect when dining at a restaurant in that hotel. I do have to reiterate, service was just excellent.

Not only was the food delicious, but the staff was so accommodating. We were with our granddaughter who needed some careful planning. They were able to prepare a delicious meal for her and for us.
Because it's at Whistler, you don't think it's going to be fine dining. But, it is and it's worth taking some article of clothing a little nicer to go to the restaurant.
Worth the space in your suitcase!

Our server, Katie, was excellent, describing the specials and telling us about the various dishes. Unfortunately (because I know how good the food is), I wasn't feeling well and she suggested the lightest foods on the menu. My soup was very good. My husband had the salmon special and he enjoyed it very much. Portions were substantial enough as we are no longer teenagers, and good value for the price. We will return next time we're at Whistler.

This would be my second time back to this restaurant. As with many remote resorts, your restaurant and everything about it has to be good if you hope to do well on a sustained basis. There are so many good places to dine in Whistler and this place for sure is among them. We enjoyed the raw oysters, crab cakes, filet mignon, and two different salads, and shared a dessert. The device was spot on as were all the plated courses. My only real complaint would be the wine list. Not a bad selection overall but grossly overpriced relative to what I know many of these wines cost in the store. Other than that, overall very satisfied and wouldn't hesitate to choose this restaurant again on a future visit.

Dinner at the Wildflower at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler was quite simply superb. The greeting was very friendly, our server was excellent and knowledgeable about the food. The Halibut was magnificent, 'the best fish dish ever', the mushroom papardelle sublime. Best Caesar salad ever. The view on to the gardens was beautiful. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

As one would expect from a large hotel fine dining restaurant. Large grand old school space.
As the restaurant was mostly empty and remained so for most of our dinner, we were seated at the smallest table for 2 with barely enough room to place what we ordered. With every item brought to the table items on it had to be rearranged.
Best Caesar salad ever. Excellent roast beef but the potatoes and root veggies on the plate were undercooked rubbish. Nicely done Sundae dessert.
We'd try it out again.

Come here a lot as we ski every weekend. Have to say always consistent with food and service, though this time the service was exceptional. The waiter could see our boys (7 and 9) had had enough skiing for the day and were not happy campers. He kept bringing them little treats and was very calm with them. He got a big tip:))
