    Food was absolutely fabulous as always. Had muscles, fish trio and lamb. Dessert was some mile high chocolate cake that was to die for.

    Very nice evening. Staff wasn’t rushed to have table so we sat longer. Food was very good: rich, heavy exactly what I expected. The only knock against is that the hotel lobby you pass through looks, feels and smells like a sports spa. Kind weird entrance! Staff were excellent. Thx

    Good spot and we agreed it was decent but the Keg had better steaks and costs less. The steak looked like a photo with the perfect grill marks but tasted more like a fast casual restaurant. I’d say it’s a good overflow restaurant

    The food was delicious and service was stellar but the the restaurant was really loud, not sure if it was the acoustics where we sat but we could hear every other table around us, loud conversations and we could barely hear each other talk. The lighting was dim at the table so it made it hard to read the menu. Overall the food was good, especially the lamb shank and miso sable fish. Our waitress was very attentive and entertaining and even brought a birthday dessert to celebrate the occasion.

    Just bad! 24oz rib eye… $110US equivalent reminded me of Tads Steaks .. a 90s NY chain serving $9.99 shoe leather! Served as a meal with icky sides when just a properly grill sliced steak would suffice. Pathetically thin, and fatty. The same money in NYC gets you perhaps Just bad! 24oz rib eye… $110US equivalent reminded me it Tads Steaks .. a 90s NY chain serving $9.99 shoe leather! Served as a meal with icky sides when just a properly grill sliced steak would suffice. Pathetically thin, and fatty. The same money in NYC gets you perhaps the finest 90 day dry aged tomahawk at Gallaghers . Mushroom were inedible . Enough garlic to kill every vampire with 100 miles. A classically overpriced , grossly underachieving ski resort joint. Best things, service and the water! A must avoid!

    The appetizers were very good, the main courses were unremarkable and they charged for the steak sauce which put me off. The dessert was gummy and sticky when it was supposed to be crunchy and light. Service was good although after we expressed our disappointment in the dessert, we were still charged. All in all, it fell short of expectations.

    First time to Joe Fortes in Whistler, and we will definitely be back. Good setting and great staff. Clams in broth with toasted foccacia was delicious. Large Prawns were also a highlight. The lobster bisque was not as much soup, but more of a gravy consistency, but not sure that was a negative as it might be their style, didn't ask.

    I was shocked that we arrived, and that not a single person at the front desk actually said the word hello to an incoming dinner guest. We stood there waiting for a few minutes while two associates were manning the front desk. Eventually, somebody else came over to help us. What a poor first impression! Dinner was OK. Not what I expected for what we paid your Vancouver restaurant is far nicer and I think we were hoping for a similar experience so left disappointed. The one positive for the evening our server was lovely and the tentative. Dinner took way too long to come out and there was a gap of at least 20-25 minutes between when the mains ended and the entrées hit the table.

    All the staff except for one seemed like they didn’t want to be there. The lamb shank was over cooked, dry inside and not very good flavour and came with half a plate of kale and some rice with mushrooms. The filet of some was quite good but prices are very high for what you get. Bathroom is up a long flight of stairs so not good for anyone with an injury or bad knee or hip.
