My few days in Yellowknife completely changed my perception of the city. Our dinner at Fuego was great, well presented, good service and a surprising good selection of wines. If prices do not scare you then I highly recommend Fuego.

There were a variety of "northern" dishes - bison, char etc. even vegetarian options. The menu also beef and chicken and other options you expect on a finer dining menu. Prices are higher throughout Yellowknife than in southern cities so prices were about what we expected. The wine list had enough options to find a satisfactory - even good- match... More

Everything looks great on your plate but the taste just isn't there. I think the fact that there was only one couple in there besides us tells you that most people had already figured this out. If you have lots of money for standard food, this is your place.

Upon arrival I was greeted by our waitress. She was attentive as she presented our table of 11 with our options. The food was delicious and I was glad to see they removed the funky decorations they used for plate presentation. Everything served was warm, and delicious. From the point of arrival to departure was 2.5 to 3 hours for... More

The service, the atmosphere, and the food were very good. I found it to be quite pricey. They have a nice selection of wines.
