Simple as that. Perfect from start to finish. Nice warm and welcoming decor. Tables appropriately spaced. Fun drinks. Excellent - albeit pricey - wine list. (There are some deals there tho) Absolutely fantastic steak. Service was stellar. So - perfect.More

Absolutely amazing accommodation from our waitress (unfortunately didn't get her name)! My wife and I have been on our honeymoon in whistler for the last few days and have had a fairly uneventful time when it came to "over-the-top" service due to it being our...honeymoon. Both of us really don't expect much frankly but not one of the 4 dinner restaurants we went to during our stay did what Sidecut did for us. Our server gave us amazing service even before we mentioned that we were here on honeymoon (which we usually don't even talk about as it genuinely doesn't seem like most people care, fair enough!). That being said, after we had paid the bill she asked what we were here for and it came out that it was our honeymoon as we just got married a week before. Instantly she had said we should have said sooner as she would have brought us sparkling wine to celebrate and asked if we would like to stick around for a bit to enjoy some complementary sparkling. We of course said yes and had two nice glasses of sparkling wine for the two of us. She went way over the top and brought us a complementary dessert with "happy honeymoon!" Written in chocolate drizzle. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience, we will absolutely be back and this restaurant will be the #1 on our list. Cheers! Dave+ChrisMore

We had a great time at this restaurant. We had a delightful server and a lot of privacy with the next table quite some distance from us. The menu is varied and the steak was delicious. We had great cocktails and excellent wine that accompanied...the meal. The refurbished restaurant is beautiful and lovely to enjoy an evening in it. It's a very expensive meal but good for a special occasion.More

We had a lovely evening at the restaurant and the experience was interesting. We started off at a table we did not like and requested to be moved and they delivered. Deepesh assisted us to move to a more intimate table for a couple and...we were fortunate enough to have Lison as our server. She was exceptional and guided us through a very good steak dinner! We received our steak just as we had requested she knew her stuff! The mushrooms are amazing and well seasoned and the Martinis was one of the best. We truly enjoyed the chocolate soufflé as well. 5 starsMore

Not much to add to my review title, frankly. I thought everything was exemplary. Charming server who made great recommendations from cocktails onwards. Great sashimi, perfectly cooked steak, etc. Admittedly the check was spectacular.

The Four Seasons Resort, Whistler BC, is a luxury boutique ski lodge hotel presenting outstanding pampering as well as iconic views of the Whistler Olympic caliber mountains. The property encases a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere and is just chucked full of amenities, amongst them, the...SIDECUT Steakhouse whose culinary delights are not to be missed. The SIDECUT has enjoyed a recent stellar redesign with architectural elements in keeping with the grandeur of the rest of the lodge. This restaurant portrays glam with a deep dark aura softened with expansive dining room windows which usher in the vistas of the snow capped mountain backdrop and warmed by a 'medieval castle' style fireplace that forms a dramatic epicentre for the dining area. The menu of the SIDECUT embraces a superb trifecta of exemplary meat items, fish products that taste like they just jumped from the Pacific Ocean into your plate and sides fabricated from farmed sourced greenery with herbs and spices culled from the resort garden. To wash everything down, the menu sports a very handsome wine list of local and worldly vintage. The menu is enticing, and not to forget the fish, I started out with the Grilled Octopus Tentacles (polenta, sautéed greens, lemon) and then opted for a main selection of Grass Fed Lamb Chops (I came for the meat).....superb....it's all about the free range and the special rub. To top up on my daily dose of caffein , I ordered a Tipsy Snowman (coffee with Baileys) and my choice of dessert was Infinite Chocolate Layer Cake (with raspberry)....if I order Chocolate Cake I want an infinite portion. At this point , I was in the mood for some bubbly but with the price of 2008 Don Perignon in the high 3 digits, I decided on a glass of local Ice Wine and save on my wallet. An exceptional meal......a memorable culinary experience in an equally memorable setting with accompanying top-notch service. This is the SIDECUT Steakhouse.............. at the Four Seasons Resort, Whistler.More

Beautiful room and wonderful service. Went for a prix fix $170 per person Xmas eve dinner. Cocktails were top notch with very classy ice that may have been carved from a large block. The steak was not top notch however the shrink wrapped ribeyes from...the Whistler grocery store are better quality. The Alberta ribeye was very thin, gristly and undercooked for medium rare. Two glasses of wine at $44 each were from a bottle that is $23 for the whole thing as per Vivino. I understand that it’s a tough time for restaurants but an establishment in a Four Seasons hotel should do better. Dinner for three including two cocktails and two glasses of wine $855 all in.More
