Throughly enjoyed their Chopped Salad and Farmers Vegetable Farro Risotto! Both were excellent. Great service and seated by their fireplace added great ambiance!

Torenados beef filets- were outstanding! Had their jalapeño sweet potato soup- exceptional such that we had it 2 nights in a row! Their chopped salad was great to! Large enough to split between 2 diners! Great service! Best of best restaurant in mammoth lakes!

Arrived late(9:30pm) Kitchen appeared cleaned up for the night. No other customers except for two police officers eating.
Server was very nice. My two guests said that they enjoyed their dinner. My dinner was a beef bourbon bbq rib. It was about 60% fat. Very disappointing. Tipped well because of good service from young New Zealand girl.
Won’t be back.

A bit cold inside. If the temperature of our dining table were warmer, we’d have enjoyed it better.

This restaurant has received mixed reviews over the years. This year it was amazing. We ate 2 nights out 4. The whitebark salad might be the best salad I have ever had and I really like green salads. Everything else was really great from the Milanese, to the filets, to the ribeye, to the cheese plate. I don’t know if anything changed this winter season from last, but hats off to the new menu. Thanks for great meals!

Had the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairing for New Year’s Eve. Food was good; however came out very fast. 4 courses in 45 minutes. No time to drink the wine. Food always came out and then we had to ask for the wine wine that course. Arugula salad and pear dessert both left a lot to be desired. Starter and entrees were delicious. Couldn’t even drink the wine. No time.

I'd recommend Whitebark on any night other than New Year's Eve. It was way over priced, and pretty bad service... I just don't think they were prepared. For the price they charged, you'd expect 5-star service, but it was more like 2-star. Would not go back for New Years Eve or any other holiday, but on a non-holiday, we'd go back for sure.

Pre-paid New year’s Eve Prix Fixe 4 course dinner. Cost was $350 for two adults and one child. We received our first course before getting our wine. Food was made in advance and had obviously been sitting there for awhile. Scallops appetizer was the best course but they suffered from being made probably 30 mins prior to service. Salad was basic. Sea bass entree was a 2 oz portion of fish over greasy limp vegetables. Chilean Sea Bass is difficult to mess up but somehow my piece was rubbery and inedible. When I told the person it was bad, it was met with indifference. The dessert was the worst course—it was a super hard “poached” pear that was so bitter that none of us ate it. Again the untouched plates were met with indifference. Service was poor and no coordination amongst servers. One of our courses was almost served twice.

Overall: apathetic service, inedible food, expensive. We left hungry after a $350 dinner.

We had steaks and vegetables sides. The broccolini was tough and in edible. My filet mignon was requested rare, but it was actually cold in the middle. The mushroom side dish was good. The biggest issue was the expense of the meal. Outrageously expensive compared to the quality of the food. This is a common issue with hotel restaurants, but this was particularly bad.

Admittedly our experience was late spring so that we practically had the entire restaurant and staff for ourselves, but I can hardly imagine that the wonderful ambience, food or service would’ve been absent on a busy winter night. Everything was perfectly prepared. Great menu with probably something for everyone, excellent wine and cocktails list, and our waiter (Nate) was attentive and very friendly. Strongly recommend as a nice touch to a Mammoth experience.

We have dined at Whitebark since it’s inception but have been disappointed over the past three years by the incredibly shrinking menu, deleting so many choices that we have decided to no longer make plans to eat there.

When we arrived, the table was ready. Service provided by Jordan was excellent and the food was fabulous. Two of us ordered the Salmon Oscar and two ordered the Filet. The Filets were cooked exactly as ordered. Definitely recommend coming here and look forward to returning here when we are back on the sloped in June!

The menu is very limited especially for a family resort. The kids menu has horrible selections. Nothing kid friendly about it. Kids don’t want to eat a deconstructed Caesar salad for dinner!

As guests of the hotel, Whitebark was an easy and convenient choice for an early dinner before an 8:30pm comedy show up at Mammoth's Canyon Lodge. We were especially impressed with the food quality.

Very limited menu, additionally, they reportedly “unfortunately” did not have scallops, one of their few appetizers, again “unfortunately” did not offer bread. No elevator for those coming from gondola street level, access difficult for those in need. For being the Westin, the restaurant was below average.

Please Trust Me... This restaurant was good two years ago. It had a good menu, good service and nice ambiance. Now it is truly awful! The menu is EXTREMELY Ltd and LUDICROUSLY pricey. You are paying Michelin prices for cafeteria food and service - I am not being overly dramatic with this description! Please do yourself a favor and stay away - book anywhere else in Mammoth. The problem is nobody actually cares here - to be a restaurant that is above average somebody has to care - the chef / the front of house team / the organization that owns it - somebody! Here at Whitebark nobody cares - least of all Westin who have decided to charge their customers exorbitant prices for incredibly poor food in an incredibly tatty restaurant- if I am paying $60+ for a steak with one side I expect a little more than a duct taped seat - sorry I just do!

We shared a bison tomahawk steak and it was absolutely delicious! Everything we ordered tasted amazing! The only less than positive things I can say is that it was just a bit louder than I’d expect for such an expensive restaurant.

Nice restaurant in the Westin - pricey but that is true of all the restaurants near the Village. The menu is not extensive but covers the essentials. The food was very good - we had burgers, steak and salad.

Food is ok and service was not great. We had been here two weeks ago and what a difference. The first time was good enough for us to return, the second time was not terrible but there are much better choices in Mammoth, especially for the prices. The service was apathetic and low energy and with just mediocre food, there is no reason to return.
