Best food we’ve experienced in Whistler.
Started out great. Ended horribly.
Great somellier. Super service oriented. We were expecting a great evening.
Had to find waiter after waiting ONE HOUR for our main course. When he arrived befuddled he asked if we wanted our main dishes served together. UM. YES please.
10 minutes later food arrived. Cold. Scallops over salted. Venison mealy And cold.
Somellier was kind and offered us a complimentary glass of wine and dessert. That made it a bit better but still a sad end to the evening overall not great experience.
My favorite restaurant in Whistler!
Always great food and atmosphere. Great wine list!
The food here is usually one of the best in Whistler. Still is. It’s a bit on the expensive side but well worth it. The wine list is deep and there are some gems in there as well as some outrageously overpriced. The food was surprisingly being served a tad slow this year (the waiting staff were very attentive though) which I found slightly unacceptable given the amount you pay for service here. We sat for at least 20 minutes after our order was taken before the fresh oysters were served. By that time, I was buzzing a bit since there was nothing else except the bottle of wine. I’d say twice slower than their normal pace. We eat here every year. The group had just taken over and reopened IL Camineto and perhaps the kitchen staff got thinned out a bit. Nevertheless, I highly recommend eating here when in Whistler. The seafood is so fresh and outstandingly prepared.
Araxi was truly one of the best meals that we have had in a long time!
Araxi is a must stop while in Whistler for my husband and I. This visit was no exception. Fantastic service and attention to our needs. We ordered way too much food, but couldn't stop eating because everything was so delicious. Seafood tower is a must, and their venison is so tender and juicy.
Every time we come to Whistler we are at the bar within half an hour of arrival! We especially like the apres ski menu from 3-5 and always order the oysters which are always fresh and delicious, the charcuterie board that is our personal favorite, and their delicious truffle fries!
It's got a nice atmosphere and the cocktails and service are top notch...you couldn't ask for more.
I'd like more steak options for dinner, other than that prepare to enjoy a great meal every time!
Amazing flavors, delicious and fresh oysters, great wine, excellent service, great time!
Everything was delicious! Great service as well!
Fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere with attentive but discreet service.. just right. Great value considering the quality of the food. Loved it!
We have dined here on several occasions and it still is our favourite restaurant in Whistler.
Food is always outstanding and the servers are always very friendly. Don’t hesitate recommending this restaurant.
Utaka is the Bomb, thanks for making it a great bday
Enjoyed fresh oysters after a great day of snowboarding.
What a gem of a place! From start to finish, the hospitality, service, presentation and food were Michelin level! How fortunate to have such an outstanding team of chefs and wait staff at a ski resort. Everything was delicious, we can’t wait to return for another magical evening!
Outstanding as always. Highly recommend it. We will be back soon.
Our honey moon celebration dinner. Absolutely amazing food and service. Our server i think, tessa was her name. Short dark curlier hair with bangs (we told her about our dog Walt, just want to make sure she gets kudos) she was one of the best servers we have ever had! Will be back for sure!
Rude hostesses, 1.25 hour seating after reservation, courses poorly timed, food cold upon arrival, unattentive server, terrible experience overall. 7th visit to this restaurant and was sorely disappointed!
Araxi is almost an icon in Whistler. In a great position, the service never disappoint and the food has maintained its high standard in the past 20+ years we have been visiting Whistler. The seafood platter as a shared appetizer is well worth trying & reasonably priced. We had 6 adults & 2 children in our party & we had a mix of meat & seafood mains which were all well presented & inventive in flavour.
Excellent well prepared food. The service is outstanding. It’s fairly pricey but the quality of the food makes it worthwhile.
Great experience overall. Service was impeccable. Accommodated our 8 month old and made our dinner experience enjoyable and easy. Beef tartare was chewy and Burrata average but the oysters delicious and the trout outstanding.
The food was great. Our seating unfortunately was off to the side behind a wall . A little too sleepy for me - we would rather have been in the main room with more activity.
Mediocre and overpriced. Very disappointing
Very crowded place, attentive staff and good food. I found it a bit overrated
Great restaurant but so very noisey. Not a place for a romantic dinner for 2.
The wine list is fabulous and does not disappoint
Will return when next in Whistler
This was our 4th time to Araxi in the passed 5 years. We always enjoy it. Great vibe. Wonderful service. Lively. Good food. My only critique is how high the prices have gotten there. Most entrees were $35+, and quite a few well into the $40's. And while the food was really good, I can't say that it equaled the cost. We will return to Araxi because we love the selection of entrees, appy's, and wine but will make sure we save up more for our next visit. Overall, really liked it!
We had a wonderful dinner celebrating our friends retirement. Juan our server was professional, attentive and knowledgeable.
Food and service is marvelous. But the ambience is terrible noisy. Sorry this was our last time. Please cancel our reservation for Jan 31.
Frenetic, chaotic and loud restaurant right out of 1980's Miami. Took almost 3 hrs for dinner without dessert. A few of the dishes were very good, but we had an extremely undercooked steak, and an absent server. Not worth the price. Overall, give it a miss.
