“Great food, amazing kids menu, cold service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Passing through golden the owner of the b&b we stayed at recommended the whitetooth bistro. We found our way to the hidden rooftop patio which overlooks the kicking horse river. On a beautifully sunny August night it was very relaxing watching the final rafting parties of the day drift by. The menu was very good and I was amazed by the kids menu. It was a real menu rather than an after thought of chicken fingers, KD, hotdogs! Our server was so uninterested in us or any of her tables that it was almost comic to watch her walk away while someone was trying to ask a question or drop off good without making eye contact. The great menu, fast kitchen and beautiful surroundings over shadowed the lack of professional service. However, a complete lack of draft beer can not be forgiven. Of the ~10 beers on the menu there was 1 option left. With this hot summer in imagine the beer selling business has been good in golden, so goodnight sold out. I would also like to see local beers on tap, specifically Mt Begbie from just up the road in Revy.

“Excellent all Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Whenever we come to Golden we make a special point of eating here. The food is always first-rate and the service staff are friendly and efficient. What a pleasant surprise this year to discover the back patio overlooking Kicking Horse River! The view and ambience is amazing and combined with the food, it just doesn't get any better for a mountain dining experience!

“Over priced poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Nice enough street side patio. The menu and prices on-line are not the same in life, web site needs to be updated. The service was deplorable! I asked for water three times over 1.5 hours, the server said they ran out? How do you run out of tap water? We never got plates or cutlery and eventually took cutlery off another table. I thought that the grazing plate we got was pleasing to the eye and yummy but was over priced at almost $17.

“Expect the usual pub experience with a million dollar view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Worth going to White Tooth to sit on the roof top patio - especially on a beautiful sunny day. We went as a couple - most of the tables are meant for large groups. A great place to have a drink, we ordered bacon caesars and were inspired to stock our liquor cabinet with bacon vodka at home. The apps were great, service was great. I'd say more of a pub experience than a place for dinner, though we did enjoy our meals - we weren't over the moon about the food. View was great though, glad we got a chance to sit up there!

“Perfection on a plate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

The view from the upstairs patio was amazing! We had breakfast there twice over the weekend and both times the food was cooked perfectly. The Godfather and Cali Bennies are amazing!
