RESTAURANT'S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed February 5, 2017

From the moment we were greeted by a very friendly manager that took our coats and welcomed us we felt that it was going to be a great experience and it was. The ambience is pretty casual, nice artwork on the walls but wooden tables and chairs. The menu is small but has a nice variety and the food is... More

I enjoyed a meal here with colleagues attending a conference. The atmosphere was the perfect mix of cozy and busy, and the food was outstanding. I can't wait to come back.

A few steps away from the crowded village centre, you find a well hidden Whistler gem: alta bistro is a beautiful place, cozy and welcoming with delicious dishes. Waiters are fast and smiling, effective and with a good knowledge of the menu, suggesting alternative options that will certainly match your taste and expectations too. For a starter, took the elk...

Loved it 2016. Liked it 2017. Maybe just the meal & the night. Have previously Ben there twice. Just did not sparkle.

We booked Alta bistro for my mothers birthday dinner and were not disappointed by this gem. Very reasonably priced by whistler standards, the wine was spectacular and good value, espresso martinis perfect, food excellent. I'm a vegetarian and was very well catered to. The road 13 (I think) Syrah blend red was such an interesting and delicious wine. We had... More

Fantastic food and service! We love this place and we try to come here every time we visit Whistler. We are always amazed with their creations and we enjoy every bite. We love the bistro atmosphere too. Sometimes, we come in at have cocktails at the bar and some nibbles. I highly recommend this place for foodies!

I don't do many TripAdvisor reviews but I had to share the best experience I've had at Whistler this week. I don't do detail but suffice to say everything from the Antipasto starter to the special crackling pork to the best after dinner cocktail was sublime. It was so good we booked again for our final night in Whistler A... More

My husband and I had a really good dinner at this restaurant. Because the appetizers all looked so good, they arranged for us to have them as a meal, so we got to take a bit of everything and it was so tasty and more than enough! I loved their creativity and innovation with respect to the preparation of the... More

Came here based on the reviews on trip advisor. Nice romantic restaurant, very creative menu. My husband loved the elk tar tar . My entree (duck) was good but not memorable. The sommelier was good, he nailed his recommendation on a local BC wine that was right for our palate.

Description
Locally inspired cuisine set in a casual bistro atmosphere. Chef Nicholas Cassettari combines his classic training, top tier experience, and world travels with the best of B.C.'S bounty to create the fine flavours at Alta Bistro. Service is casual and prompt in the dining room and bar. The wine list is French focused, with the best of B.C. As well as international selections (many by the glass) with Enomatic machines dispensing fine and eclectic selections to pair with Alta's cuisine. Mixologists behind our bar craft some of Whistler's finest cocktails. The cozy bistro atmosphere is lively and welcoming. Reservations are a must.
