“Great decor and food but difficult access”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

The Whitebark is inside the Westin Hotel, which is difficult both to locate (it's on a side street) and to find non-guest parking for. That's too bad, because it's probably the best modern facility restaurant in Mammoth. While not our favorite restaurant in town, it is on the short list, with sometimes exotic food choices and always a good wine selection. The prices are high.

“Go for cocktails ONLY”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Last October there was a sushi bar and good food. Now, no sushi chefs (3 left at once, what does that tell you?) and the food was a mess. Tuna tataki salad was dressed with what tasted like straight wasabi and rendered it inedible. Salads were a snore and the duck confit quesadillas were a veritable salt lick. Cocktails were perfect tho, so stay in the lounge.

“Happy Hour drinks and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

With so many choices of apps at 1/2 half off we just went wild and really enjoyed ourselves. The draft beer was cold and very good - and well worth the 1/2 off price.

“Average hotel restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We've been to this restaurant 3 times- once for lunch and the rest for dinner. Somehow the only consistency has to do with the slow service and getting the orders wrong. Maybe because of the ambience,or the prices, but it seems like this should be a better place with better service. It is not terrible, but it is overpriced and super slow. The wait staff is friendly, but not efficient. Sorry to say, but will not return again. There are other choices.
