We had a great experience at dinner last night here! From the friendly greeting on arrival to service, food and atmosphere all was simply great! Alexa was our server was so pleasant and attentive checking on us often without being intrusive! We shared the roast...brussel sprouts with a expertly prepared old fashioned as a starter! We then had the pan seared Ling cod and cioppino for dinner and both were perfectly cooked and presented! Paired with perfect wines this was a superb dinner! We will be back!More

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it was not an enjoyable experience. We were given a seat by the kitchen service which was extremely busy and it was like eating in a busy street ! After several recent seafood meals we thought we...would have some pasta-a mistake. My wife had meatballs with spaghetti. You could not fault the size of the portion as they were 2 huge meatballs but the drawback was they were tepid in the centre and my wife was so nervous about eating them she just left them. I had seafood linguine - I enjoy garlic with my meal but this was so overpowering as to spoil the whole dish. Not a place I would go back to.More

Went to our favourite restaurant in Whistler today. Got there for the Happy Hour specials. Not pleased that they have made the menu smaller. Raised the price from 3 for 20 to 3 for 25. To top it off the portions have also decreased in...size....Not happy with the visit this time. Guess I will have to look for another place to dine in Whistler.More

Service was great (Fia was lovely). The food was fine but nothing spectacular and it was pricey for the sizes of the portions. Our friends had raved about the calamari, but it was just garlic and olive oil: nothing special.

We came here twice for dinner. The Mac n cheese with truffle oil is amazing! Our 15-yo son loved the burger so much he had 2 the second night. Fries were crispy and tasty. I had the seafood linguini with very fresh seafood (even the...clams!). Sauce was a bit on the tart side. the calamari a la plancha was a bit bland. The cocktails were great! Atmosphere was very lively (loud). All in all, our family enjoyed it!More
