My wife and I dined here one evening without the kids. I enjoyed the rabbit stew and my wife the scallops. The menu was fairly extensive and although not cheap it was reasonable. The atmosphere was welcoming and conduicive to relaxed meal. The clientel on the evening we dined seemed to be a mix of families, couples and groups.

Just came back from a great fancy family dinner, fabulous food, great conversations with the kids - students at SFU. This is definitely a restaurant where you go for long sit down dinners. Yes, you spend a bit but it is delicious food and worth every penny! Service was great, I think our waiter knew we were catching up and... More

The service at this restaurant was excellent but this is not the place to come to if you want a quick bowl of pasta or a cheapie pizza. The food was very good, the wine list was pretty extensive but don't come in your ski wear. This is a great place for a formal, maybe romantic meal for a special... More

We had a lovely evening here. The ambiance was warm and relaxed. My husband loved his meal of the smoked salmon to start followed by caribou. I found the menu too rich and heavy. I had rabbit to start which was delicious but quite heavy. I ordered fish for my main course and this was served in a very buttery... More

An upmarket Italian with lovely food and excellent service. Priced to match. Vegetables were extra, and delicious, but at $45(+tax & service) for a plate, I feel they should have been included.

My partner and I came for dinner and we were not disappointed! Our server Dale was really friendly and paired some nice wine with our food. I ordered the beef carpaccio and the scallops, and my partner had the foie gras and the veal osso bucco everything was amazing! There was even a man playing piano in the lounge part... More

We do not know Whistler well, so did not know what to expect at a fancier spot. Our experience was excellent. It was very crowded but we had reserved and were expected. Very nicely escorted to quite intimate seats. Interesting menu; not just the usual Italian fare. The wine-list had a good spread of prices. The waitress was knowledgeable, friendly,... More

My partner had told me so much about this restaurant as it was one of his favourites from a previous visit so I was expecting great things. Sadly, it didn't quite live up to the hype. He was really disappointed and said that it wasn't as good as it had been 3/4yrs ago. The food was ok and so was... More
