The friendly and attentive staff couldn't make up for the disappointing food. Organic leaves from the roof terrace took centre stage and despite being complimentary,like being back in the school canteen you got the feeling you couldn't move on until you had finished them. I suspect we caught them on an off day as the restaurant always looked busy.

Our server Bria was delightful. The food was as well, make sure to order the mushroom chowder! The Nita salad is also great. Can't beat the view.

November is shoulder season in Whistler and time for lots of catch up maintenance. Our first night here they were re-vanishing the lovely dark wood fixtures and kitchen smells were overpowered by other chemicals. They were closed until the weekend. So we waited and came in for Sunday Breakfast. Worth it! The room overlooks the lakeside patio and tables were... More

We were looking forward to trying the Aura Autumn 4 course tasting menu that is offered Sunday through Thursday in the Cure Lounge during the quiet off season. Not only was this seasonal menu a disappointment, it was a strange culinary experience, to say the very least. My guess would be a real chef had that day off. The first... More

The food is exceptional. And really different options. We're vegan, and they had some really nice food for us. The service was also wonderful. Such a great group of people working at the restaurant and the hotel. Very good.

Enjoyed a romantic dinner on the patio. The food was perfect. We had the tenderloin for main course and it was the best that we have had. Highly recommend

Bria, our server was cool, pro, and had her menu DOWN. For those of you that prefer vegetarian, or less red meat-there were OPTIONS. Seriously YUMMY options. We had the amazing ravioli, amazing salad, the roasted Cauliflower was sensational. Our desert, a deconstructed cheese cake...not enough adjectives. The night was our anniversary dinner, perfect, by the water. Couldn't ask for... More

Grainy breads, freshest vegetables, organic herbs and great wine combined in unique ways by the chef. My husband even tried the sorrel sorbet and liked it!
