    Smoked bison brisket poutine was phenomenal. Also enjoyed the Elk tenderloin although they didn’t quite prepare it as asked.

    Beautiful amazing experience I wish I could eat there everyday. I was amazed at how the staff check the tables for wobbles. The food off the charts the presentation fit for a foodie magazine. The environment of the restaurant was bang on. I kept finding new lamps every time I went in hanging from the ceiling. I really enjoyed myself and the staff made it even more special. Thank you all your efforts certainly show.

    I had the crab and scallop cake which was very good. It would have been perfect if they added some garlic aioli. I had a side Caesar which I found bland. The dressing lacked garlic. Would not recommend this as an entree if you are a fan of Caesar salad. Service was very good. This restaurant has been rebranded. It was a pleasant surprise.

    Order the elk tenderloin and Buffalo steak. The tenderloin was great, the Buffalo was salty in my opinion and had a lot of gristle so it was comparable to a cheap steak I would buy at the grocery store so that wasn't ideal. My wife and I both found the sides to be very bland for the price. Undercooked carrots, cauliflower and OK Mashed potatoes..very much like a home cooked meal I do at home, but I'd do it better. We go to many of this chains hotels and eat at their restaurants and found this was the most disappointing meal we had so far. Had a good time otherwise, great service and nice drinks.

    We had a weekend package with room, dinner and breakfast. As this is a dining review I won’t talk about the room experience. Our dinner was excellent and the desert was outstanding however our service was just ok. Started with waiting almost half an hour to get a bottle of wine to the table after we ordered it. Server did not check on our food until we had almost finished. Trying to pay the bill took forever. Breakfast was a gong show cold food and not served at the same time. We complained and they did nothing for us.

    The food was outstanding, and the British folk serving us were very charming. One thing that I thought could be better was the lighting. Areas of the restaurant were lit up randomly and poorly in some areas.. if they improve the light it would create an even more ambient and comfortable setting. Can’t say enough about the food. Very well done

    Staff actually read my special request to give me a booth that was somewhere quiet/secluded, so great job! We had the Bison ribeye and the lemon pasta, both were excellent. Ambience was very nice, and customer service top notch. IMO the prices were a bit too high. Overall I would highly recommend and would return.

    The wait staff and management are terrible. They don't know how to communicate effectively with high end clientele. Rude and service was slow. Our table was having fun laughing together on our annual trip and the management told us that we need to stop laughing and remain quiet The food was so good but the service is not on par.

    I would of scored higher however as a vegetarian who can’t eat lentils I found the options poor. I couldn’t enjoy the 3 course deal as it included trout as the only main course option and on the other menu I could only choose endive salad one night as my main whereas it was only an appetizer and I needed to ask for the chicken to be swapped for prawns with the pasta meal. The food itself was delicious and well presented but more vegetarian options please

    Great food. Loved the bison poutine, lentil stew, BC trout etc. Had Blueberry 2.0 which was also very tasty, but a little too much ice. The place was comfortable, but should have had more decor considering the price of the meal. Our server was attentive and kind.

    We thought that the endive salad was really good. But it would be nicer with feta instead of goat cheese. The bison burger was a bit dry. And the french fries in the poutine were limp. Although the gravy was tasty. The cocktails were very nice. The wine is quite expensive. Service was good.

    5 people dining. Started with 7 otem charcuterie board which was outstanding. All 5 entrees were great. The warm gingerbread cake dessert was a great finish. Will definitely go back. The only negative was the overall ambience. I liked the old restaurants look & feel - more rustic & warm but that's just personal taste.
