This restaurant is located inside the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. I had the breakfast buffet one morning and a three-egg omelette on another. The quality of the food is incredible. The service is impeccable. The pricing...well, it is a resort community. I paid $37 for my...omelette. Granted, it came with other food items, but it was still $37. That being said, this is a top-quality food venue that will fill you regardless of what menu you use. Would I eat there again? Yes.More

I'm a gluten free and they had a local...gluten free lager. I also had a gluten free bread roll which was lush. The food was top notch and large portions if you ask for side I.e Lumber Jack Fries enough for 2. This cost me addition $30 from a local restaurant and this was miles apart in quality and service. Highly recommended if you're are local or a visitor. Thank you for a lovely night.More

What a disappointment. Great reviews that simply didn’t live up to the experience. Superb steak BUT booked at 20.30, seated at 20.45 and served food at 22.15! Offered salads and bits we didn’t want (and frankly were awful) but kitchen must have been having a...meltdown. Waiter superb, steak great accompaniments below average. A real shame - not sure I could be tempted back but delays and poor food down to the kitchen.More

Staying at the Fairmont we expected their restaurant to be outstanding. What a mistake. All the starters and mains we had were just average restaurant fare. They try to emulate better restaurants with beside the table presentation and cooking and the 'show' doesn't follow through...to the food. They came to our table with steak on a trolly to cut to size required. After discussing the flavour, cooking etc. the (Very expensive) steak was cut, when it arrived it was very overcooked and not medium rare as discussed, also there were pieces of sinew which could not be cut through. We complained and eventually they agreed to exchange the steak. We waited and waited, everyone else at the table had finished their meal and all the remaining sides were cold. The second steak arrived very rare, so still wrong and again was tough. A manager finally arrived who was actually unpleasant in his attitude and said there was nothing wrong with the steak and that it was just "not the right thing for us'. Insulting and insinuating we didn't know what we were ordering. Eventually a different meal was ordered and one member of our party ate alone. Our waitress did everything she could for us and even went and got a fresh side, as the manager was quite happy to leave plates of cold stale food on the table. Then they had the nerve to charge us for the steak. That took another half hour to get resolved. Even with the steak off the bill, still overpriced for the quality of food and our evening was ruinedMore

We visited as a couple on a Wednesday night. First thing we were very impressed with is the service of the staff at the Grill room - attentive but not overbearing. They also did Wednesday evening wine discounts so we got a beautiful bottle of...BC red courtesy of staff recommendation. There were plenty to choose from on the menu and the food was very well cooked and tasty, perhaps on the slightly salty side with the seasoning. It is worth mentioning that the decor of the restaurant is exceptional. We really enjoyed our meal and overall, we rated this better than Araxi, Bearfoot Bistro and the Red Door Bistro.More

My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary at the Grill Room. When I made the reservation, I made a note that this was a special anniversary for us. From the moment we checked in with the Hostess, the staff went out of their way...to make our dinner special and romantic. They seated us in a cozy table for two in a back corner near the fireplace. They offered us each a complimentary glass of local sparkling wine which was quite good. The Chef also sent us a complimentary prawn dish which was exquisite. The food was excellent, I had a fillet topped with Dungeness crab and my wife had the rainbow trout. What really set this experience apart was the service. Our head waiter was Paul. I asked how long he had worked at the Grill Room and he told us that he helped open the restaurant in December 2011 and has been there ever since. Paul was attentive to us and the tables around us. He did a great job. We decided to share a chocolate sundae for dessert and the Chef wrote in beautiful script “Happy Anniversary” with chocolate drizzle on the service plate. It was an awesome experience for us. Thanks!More
