Tiny plates, excellent food, wonderful view.

The title pretty much sums it up. I'm glad we had a large launch that day and weren't "starving" going in. Don't get me wrong, the food was delicious...but this is a very expensive dinner for not much on the plate!

We were staying at another hotel and we were shuttled to the restaurant for our 8 pm reservation. The service was exceptionally friendly and quick . We shared a Nita lake salad which was fresh and delicious. The wine list was great and they had a good selection . Our main course ( steak ) was perfect and the veggies... More

Wandered into this restaurant during the ski season ( just getting around to doing reviews) while staying at the Fairmont. Had an excellent meal that was a little pricely for the ambiance (a little loud and eurobeat driven), but the service and the quality of the meal more than made up for it. And the pork belly added to the... More

We came here for dinner on a Saturday night. We were a bit last minute and came here because there was room and I was looking for a fine dining experience Décor is rustic and chic. You have good space between tables (great for a couple’s dinner). Try to get a window view if possible. Lake view is nice. Outside,... More

To be fair, the Aura restaurant is a beautiful location that was a highly suggested place to have breakfast on their terrace as part of a bike ride along the Valley Trail at Whistler. Unfortunately, we never had the opportunity to try their food as the service was no existent. Our family sat for 20 minutes with 4 people passing... More

Wow. I am stunned by these reviews. Tuesday night, my parents' 50th anniversary trip, couldn't get reservations for a party of 10 anywhere else. Walked in, maybe 6 people eating at 8:00. Alarm bell starts going off; every other decent restaurant in Whistler was packed for dinner that week. We were seated promptly, the server was competent and took drink... More

This is a casual dining spot with a view of the lake. The Lodge is very nice and the wait staff was great. Without drinks and with dessert & tip our dinner cost was about $75 each

We ate here on a recent trip to Whistler. We were looking for restaurant with a great view. When we arrived the window seats were taken. Not to worry, we went outside and looked upon the lake view that was just awesome. On the inside, the meal did not disappoint nor did the service. They have an excellent cocktails, exquisite...

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
