Had a good meal here. Liked the variety on the menu especially the Elk Linguini. Very brave to do this dish as elk can be tough. Presentation was good. Wine selection is limited but we found our favorite. The Date dessert was fabulous. Prices were reasonable.

We decided to check on Corks again and we are happy to say, the Corks 2014-2015 version is much improved from last year. we arrived while apres ski happy hour was still on... More

Corks up here at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has just reopened two weeks ago under new ownership. They are the same owners as WhiteTooth Bistro down in Golden. Very nice restaurant located about 3 minutes walk from the base of the gondola. The place is very clean with nice decor and pleasant and welcoming staff. The food is excellent. We... More

We made reservations for 7 a few days before we arrived at Kicking Horse. When we showed up, they had no record of our reservation and there was a private function. They managed to find a table to accomodate us quite quickly. The service and food was so absurdly slow, especially since we had 3 hungry young children with us,... More

Food was delicious but service was bit slow. Server was alone and was not always attentive to our needs.I had one of the bison specialities which was very good. Prices are high but it is the nicest restaurant in kicking horse. Some of the friends I was with did consider the portions small.

My husband and I were seated and got our order in before a party of 7 men. The menu was lovely, the food looked as if it would be wonderful, and we eagerly anticipated the arrival of our entrees. I enjoyed my delicious glass of wine for over an hour. We were famished. It was very loud, hardly an intimate... More

Glad I took the time to read the reviews. The fact the owner didn't take the time to respond to some of these postings shows just how interested they are in service. They know they have a captive audience and take advantage of it. I'll go to cedar house instead.

Atmosphere was more pub-like with loud music at first. Eventually they changed music & dimmed the lights. The seafood stew was salty & salmon was way over done. When we complained about salmon the server said she would tell the kitchen but no discount. The charcuterie was basically some rice crackers, bread & cold it's from the local grocery store,... More
