All fresh. All local. And very inviting.
Service was very poor. Didn't even keep our water full. Ceasar salad had no flavour, no garlic, no anchovy, just sweet and no lemon in sight. Very bland. Steak was ordered medium rare and it came well done but no one checked until the other person in the party was almost finished. We had to actually flag someone down to tell them. Our server was non-existent except to take the order and take our money. Someone else served it, but no one came around with water or even asked if we wanted another glass of wine, nor did a quality check. The steak was also sous vide so the texture was odd and not appetizing even if it were cooked the way it was ordered. The fish dish was over salted and there was "risotto" that was full of sour cream or something. It was a big gloppy mess. Overall we hardly touched our meals. This was not chef inspired or made. It tasted like it all came off a delivery truck, poured out of bag and heated. I would not return.
I booked a table for 4 with good friends/clients of ours, and specifically asked for it to be outside. When we arrived we were told outside is first come first serve and were put inside instead. We were not pleased but took the table anyway. The food was good and our waitress was kind and efficient, however did make a joke about us not wanting dessert...
Waitress was super nice and very helpful !!! Thank you!
for a posh restaurant, it wasn't cheap but you got what you paid for, excellent service an a full plate of prime rib with some of the best Yorkshire puddings I've ever ate
The idea of a BBQ Buffet is great and opens up a lot of possibilities. I'm not sure what the rotation is, but for us we had salmon, lamb, and steak as the primary ingredients. I found the salmon to be a bit dry but the glaze was very tasty. The lamb was very good as was the steak and mushroom glaze. The selection of sides was very good as well.
We sat outside on a warm Sunday evening and the vistas are terrific. Service was very good as well. The value for the Buffet itself was very good. Drinks were quite pricey though.
Overall a very good experience and would do it again.
It’s always an excellent experience!
We had Maddison for our waitress and she was excellent; very pleasant to deal with. She ensured that our entire meal experience was A+. The maitre d quietly came around about 3/4 through our meal and pleasantly asked how dinner was going. We really felt well taken care of here without being interrupted too much. The food was delicious as was the wine.
We enjoyed the Sunday night BBQ!
The Service was Excellent & the views Outstanding!
Thanks for a Great visit!
We will be back!
We moved outside to be quieter-the view is stunning and the heater lamps kept us warm. It was a wonderful delicious dinner and our waitress brought us complimentary dessert wine from an island off Sicily, since it was our anniversary.
The food was very very good! We recommand that place
Food was good our Waitress was outstanding so friendly and funny
our Server Lola was a real pleasure, the food from the new menu was delicious, the wines as well, and the desserts, it was our anniversary, we live in the area and wanted to do something different special and memorable and it certainly was. we've already recommended Bella to friends.
Thank you for the feedback in regards to your most recent dining experience with us and we are thrilled that you chose to celebrate such a special occasion with us. We look forward to hosting you again, Morgan Hass Supervisor of Outlets
Food was great, service was great. Restaurant was very quite.
Both wives dinners were surperb. My guests fish (halibut) was thin and dry. My steak (8oz. rather than 12oz. ordered) was flavorful but on the tough side.
The prices are high, and the eggs an opaque light yellow. Higher quality deep orange yolks would be preferable. The kind of eggs you get at local farms.
The server was nice, but the service wasn’t. The food quality was surprisingly UNACCEPTABLE, specifically the seafood pasta which over 50% of the mussels in our plate had super terrible smell. They were stink and obviously not fresh at all. We told our server when she came for her routine check, and a “Sorry” was ALL we got. The three of us spent about $200 in total and we felt the quality and value we received were not worth the price we paid. It was such a disappointing dinner on my wife’s birthday! :(
Well presented excellent food. Excellent friendly professional service from Madison. Our table (in the corner near the entrance ) was very draught and noisy from the slit like opening to the foyer. Why is the slit there? Despit that we had a very good meal and time.

Great p;ace to take out of town visitors and impress with a first class meal!
Thank you for taking the time to rate us and leave us with your feedback. We look forward to hosting you again :) Morgan Supervisor of Outlets
every thing in the dinningroom was great how ever we found the valay parking at $20. for a 2 hour dinner a little exsive
Service and food was by far was fabulous!:)
Much confusion that we had made a reservation. We had a 7:15 reservation. Sat in the dinning area instead of the pub area, which was nice as it was fairly quiet so we could talk.
The waitress took along time to come give us any water - bread and take drink order. So we just sat there.
Our meals arrived in 15 mins or so which was fine only mine had just mashed potatoes with the steak plopped on top. Not to great for a $24 dollar meal. This was rib night and the ribs were ok on the first round for two of our guests, however the second half rack (apparently is wasn't all you can eat as advertised) was cold and had been sitting for a long time before served. Disappointing meals.
Waitress didn't come around much. Waitress got the bill wrong and charged our guests for one of our meals. (there were four of us)
Next day my husband had intestinal problems all day...
We would come back for a drink at pub but never will we eat again here....
We are sad to see such a wonderful resort with a very low class dinning experience.
Very friendly service. Our server was great. The food was also very good. Wines are a bit high priced. However this is a resort, so the prices are higher here. Worth trying if you are staying at the hotel.
Thank you for your feedback - we value it greatly. We do try to be mindful when selecting appropriate price points for the wine based on local business and Westin standards- we will definitely look into this. Hope to see you again Morgan Supervisor of Outlets
Risotto was quite dry. Service was awesome!
I don’t know why you have me down as Ted McGill. I reserved under Lisa.
Ted is my X husband. Perhaps he took a paramour there during our marriage as it was my first time.
Lisa, I am so sorry to hear about the risotto and I wish it would have been brought to managements attention. Next time let us know and we will happily remake or compensate for this, as we only strive for greatness. The system we use for reservations saves all reservations via email or phone number- so that may be why it registered under someone other than you. I apologize for that. Thank you for joining us and hope to see you again. Morgan Supervisor of Outlets
New menu is excellent with multiple choices to combine dishes nd add ons.
Thank you for joining us and the great feedback!
The food was excellent. I was desappointed because when I reserve, they said that they will put a note because I had a request for my husband birthday. They never delivered my request. Maybe the waitress did not check the note whit the reservation or they did not put the note.
Thank you for the great feedback in regards to your meals. We definitely will look into this as we strive for greatness and ultimately would never want any requests to go unnoticed. We value our guests deeply. I hope you decide to join us again in the future - so we may have the opportunity to make this up to you and your company. Morgan Supervisor of Outlets

Bella was closed because of the weather but we did get a phone call from Julie ahead of time, letting us know Master’s Lounge would be open and the Bella menu would be available. We were celebrating our Anniversary and we love the ambiance at the Bear Mountain Westin.
Both of us ordered tenderloin medium rare - beautiful cuts were brought out - mine was cooked to rare and since I really wanted to enjoy it, I asked for it to be cooked a little more. When it did come back it was well done. A little disappointing but overall still a wonderful evening.
The Dine Around menu was very good - the mushroom soup superb. As always, the service was excellent
the atmosphere was wonderful, fireplace was roaring, lighting has a nice golden glow. Service was excellent - attentive, personal and yet professional. Food was hot, everything came out together even with 6 different dishes ordered.
A bit pricey for the amount of food on the plate. The service was great and so was the ambiance . Ribs were a bit tough and the ravioli starter was a bit disappointing. My steak was very good and done to perfection.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to rate your dining experience with us. We take our guest feedback directly to our teams to ensure we exceed guests expectations. I do sincerely appreciate you informing us which aspects of your experience met and failed to meet your expectations. However, I do apologize in regards to the rib and ravioli dishes - as we do strive for excellence. We will be revamping our menu and I do hope you will join us again in the future.

Beautiful setting and view with great food and service to match!
The noise from the Masters Lounge really ruined the quiet dinner we were hoping for. The food was okay but I wouldn’t say that the price matched the portion. While my au jus was much sweeter than any I had had before, my dinner mates fish was underseasoned. We ate breakfast as well that morning and I paid $7 for 2 pieces of toast while I paid for $5.50 for 6 peices of bacon. The prices were a bit unreasonable.
Very nice and good service
