Wonderful Dinner

Exceptional food. Local farm veggies and salad. nice fish too. fresh house made soup was delicious. the view was so nice overlooking the lake. we ate outside and the sun can be a bit much but we had enough shade or you could sit inside.

Average eating experience in an otherwise very nice resort.Breakfast was fine and staff very nice but same menu each night with limited selections was disappoining.Plus farmed salmon instead of wild disappointing.

Dear guest, Thank you for reviewing your Aura experience; we are pleased you found our staff so friendly. We do try to keep a small, simple menu when working with seasonal produce to ensure all dishes are fresh and local. The salmon we currently feature is sustainable farmed Kuterra salmon to give the best possible taste while being mindful of... More

We stayed here for two nights at the hotel and ate here the first night and the food was superb,overlooking the lake the tables were well set. Great service and good wine list,maybe the cocktail list could be slightly bigger but only a small gripe. Reccomend it.

We were able to eat dinner on the terrace watching Nita Lake and a lovely sunset. The food was perfect in taste, presentation and quality. The service was some of the best we've ever had. All our needs were met seamlessly. They even allowed us to move indoors after dinner for coffee and dessert - no problem. Love this restaurant.

They have completely turned things around in the kitchen an the quality of the food is outstanding. They use local items including greens from their garden. I had the pork chop, which was outstanding. Merk our server was also excellent

We had 5-course tasting meals and were impressed with the quality and taste. The staff did a fabulous job accommodating our dietary concerns (no dairy and no meat). The highlights of our meal were the grilled salmon (some of the best I've ever eaten) and the vegan sorbet for dessert (bursting with fresh flavours).

The food at Aura was fresh, creative and delicious. Service was excellent. The lakeside setting is tough to beat.

While I found the room and spa excellent, the dining was unsatisfactory. A large group of us (12) dined at Aura. The restaurant was understaffed resulting in bad service. One bread basket for 12l; one menu; instructions on which way to order then delivering out of order, incorrect bill, etc. When speaking with the Manager another day about our experience... More

We almost always eat here when in Whistler, probably because we stay at Nita Lake Lodge. Besides convenience of location, the food is great! It was a 3 course prix fix. We could not eat the dessert, we were nicely satisfied. I would say too, one of the best views! I like being in Whistler, but away from the village.... More

Eight of us visited Aura Restaurant for celebratory meal while holidaying in Whistler. The service was exceptional and the food wonderful, with lots of locally sourced specialities. The setting is beautiful. We will definitely be back when next in Whistler. We also had lunch at the Cure Lounge which was very reasonable and delicious.
