We went to this little Bistro as online it was considered 5 star. It’s situated beside the old pub and when we went in were told this isn’t the way in and had to go back outside to this tiny red door. Not marked well....The atmosphere isn’t very pleasant. Small restaurant, uncomfortable chairs, abit rickety than what we are used to for 5 stars. The food was good, my husband had the Bouillabaisse, and I had the Mushroom Risotto and Truffle Fries. The server, Dave provided good service. Just so casual as we were all dressed up and the waiters were in shorts! Ugh! Won’t be back as it was very pricey but not worth the effort.More

We had the pleasure of dining at The Red Door Bistro on Saturday night. And what a treat it was! The food was perfectly prepared and paired nicely with Roche Wine from the Okanagan Valley. The service was attentive and the restaurant has taken great...effort to ensure a proper and safe Covid dining experience. There are so man reasons that the Red Door Bistro is the #1 rated restaurant in Whistler. I can't wait to return. Make sure you secure a reservation as being number 1 ensures this is a very popular dining experience.More

Based on the reviews and unwarranted hype, we tried this restaurant. The service and food were very good but the cocktails and atmosphere were a disappointment. The food is well made, nicely presented, portions are large and reasonably priced. We especially liked the Chicken Liver...Terrine and the Bouillabaisse. Sadly, the cocktails are basic drinks from the pub next door; so, don't expect anything fun or creative. The wine list is fine. The setting is casual and we ended up at a high-top table with bar chairs which we didn't expect or enjoy; so, request a regular table if you don't want to sit higher. Although everything tasted great, it is not fine dining level of food; therefore we're surprised by people saying it's the best food or restaurant in Whistler. It's not. But that doesn't mean we won't return, we will as we liked it but now we know what to expect.More

We wouldn’t have gone in, based on location and appearance, but relied on the Tripadvisor ranking. The food itself was that of an upscale establishment. Braised beef could be cut with a spoon, sauce was mouth watering. Definitely not a five star ambiance though -...closer to a bistro at best. The waiter wore shorts. If they put a little “ lipstick on the pig” they would have themselves a 5 star establishment.More

Excellent meal for our 25th anniversary. We were glad we were able to eat at little gem. We were seated outside on the patio which was really nice during these Covid times. Our waiter was friendly and food was interesting and of high quality. I...had the braised beef with some mushroom risotto and wife had fish. My beef was so tender and tasty while her fish she felt may have been a little bit better. The ambience is more relaxed and the service was attentive. We would dine here again.More

Whenever we go to the Red Door they never disappoint us. It seems that they keep raising the bar. Definitely our favourite restaurant in Whistler!

We shared the chicken liver terrine, and had the duck breast and the special veal medallions. All presentations were amazing and the quality of food was awesome.

I've enjoyed many fine dining experiences and The Red Door is honestly the best there is in Whistler! The service, the quality throughout the menu and the selection is second to none! Okay, so there aren't a lot of tables but maybe this is what...makes them soooo great! And yes, it's difficult to get in, but it's WORTH it!More

Amazing food, service, and atmosphere. Absolutely top notch quality that you would normally find in NYC, Singapore, or London. No trouble handling gluten free, diary free, etc. with knowledgeable servers advising base ingredients to avoid known food allergy issues . When you are planning a...trip to Whistler, don't forget to make a reservation right after hotel booking. It is a must visit!More

When do you want to come, how early. The Red Door has amazing food and wine selection but not sure if a taking a 6 month old out in the evening is a good idea. On the other hand it is pretty quiet between 5 and 7 so if young... More
