The sitting is very classy and elegant, large wooden beams on the ceiling with a fireplace at the back wall. Prices are expensive ,for the 2 of us it was about $150.00

We wanted to do this one dinner within the hotel and we dont want to go out. A relaxing laid back dinner. we requested to slow pace us as we wanted to enjoy few drinks. Dont have to catch a taxi or drive and the...servers were very accommodating. My bone in rib steak was perfectly done. sides of garlic kale, mash potatoes and the side sauce all were excellent. Overall a great experience. Had no room for dessert.More

My husband and I opted to spoil ourselves with a breakfast at The Grill Room located inside the Whistler Fairmont Hotel on our final day of vacation. We were not disappointed by this restaurant! Covid-19 precautions in place, delightful staff and delicious food at reasonable...prices given the location. We both had the Whistler breakfast. We were offered a complimentary mini strawberry smoothie accompanied by a mini berry muffin to start too! Totally recommend this restaurant!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

Dined at The Grill Room for dinner. Started with the Dungeness Crab Cake and the Pork Belly with Diver Scallop. The crab cake was awesome - while the Pork belly with diver scallops was the best appetizer I’ve ever had. The scallops were cooked perfectly...and the pork belly was crispy and flavourful. For mains we had the rib steak and the chef’s catch which was Arctic char. For sides we had the mushroom spinach risotto and green beans. Our meal was fantastic. Ambience was great as we had the best seats in the restaurant right in front of the fireplace. Our server Eliza provided exceptional service. She was very personable, attentive and her knowledge of the menu was top notch. An absolute gem. Overall our dinner at The Grill Room was very memorable. Highly recommend.More
