“Outstanding Food and Wine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

We went with a group of 8 as needed some place different to dine while staying at the Chateau. The restaurant is very cozy with a wood burning fieldstone fireplace and plenty of windows to see the falling snow and lights. The staff was excellent and knew every little detail about each food item and the wines. The waiter reviewed the extensive menu with us and answered all our questions. The wine list and cellar is exceptional with 25,000 bottles and by no means inexpensive! We had foie gras, lobster bisque, lobster cannelloni, and gnocchi for starters and they were all exceptional. My bisque was a bit salty even for me who loves salt. For mains, a few had the caribou which they raved about and others had the best Alberta beef tenderloin and veal dishes. I ha the ahi tuna steak which was just minimally seared with a crispy lobster, squash mash underneath. We needed some help picking the wines as the list is exhaustive, but be cogniscent of the prices while the staff are recommending wines, as we almost picked a $1200 bottle as compared to the $100 bottle! There is a cigar and scotch room just off the dining room with nice leather chairs and sofas and everyone looked to be enjoying themselves. Overall a great dining experience and would highly recommend for a special treat!

“Casual atmosphere, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We returned after 7 years, because I craved the pear cider served here. My husband's burger was really good, but the fries looked like soggy, frozen ones. The pizza that I ordered was too doughy and cheesy. The server was very friendly and we like the atmosphere. Not sure about going back, because of my food disappointed.

“Excellent service. Definitely pricey!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Decided to book dinner here based on all the glowing reviews I read here. The atmosphere was lovely...the fire made it nice and cozy.

Service was very good, our waiter was very helpful in recommending a wine from the huge wine list. Enjoyed the wine very much. The food was also very good, just not as exceptional as I was expecting. We had the filet and the bison.

Dinner for the two of us with wine (one of the less expensive bottles) cost more than our 2-night hotel stay (not at the Post hotel)! It's nice to splurge once in a while though :)

Nice spot
Waitresses seemed cranky but not too bad I guess It was fairly busy but I thought it would of been a little more up scale

“Excellent service. Fantastic food. Not inexpensive but good value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Cozy and comfortable old world decor. Attentive (also old world) service. Excellent food, impeccably presented. Not inexpensive but worth the price of admission!
