    Small portions for the hefty prices but very tasty. Recommend asking for seconds on the complimentary bread and butter which was outstanding. Peach pavlova was unimpressive due to the mass produced meringue shell which was way too hard and not a nice crusty meringue with a soft centre as I would have expected from such a high end restaurant.

    Very unique restaurant, backing on to a World Class ski hill. We moved to this area from California, and had 100s of great restaurants to choose from ...... not so, here; so we were thrilled to find a Fine Dining Experience that was only 30 minutes away. We will be back ! Relaxed atmosphere. Great service, that you would typically only find in a major centre. Food was very good. Wine List was extensive; albeit pricy. Martinis were spot on.

    Music was good but loud so that you had difficulty having conversation. Need to ask to have our table cleared before our meal came. Otherwise the bar and waitstaff are courteous and pleasant and the food was excellent Will definitely come back

    Visiting Rossland from Revy and I must say I’m very impressed with the Josie Hotel and the Velvet restaurant The ambiance and the decor has any place in Revy beat! ( sorry Revelstoke) The servers were an absolute delight! Excellent service that beats service in my home town again any day! I am so impressed I will be coming back several times during my month stay here! Red Mountain you are Rad!!

    The tables would be better if they were a bit secluded. Our waitress was amazing, a very nice girl from Australia. The wine was pricey, the same way as in most restaurants which I do not understand. The food was ok.

    Excellent starters and main course dishes from the summer menu. Duck duo was amazing as was the grilled asparagus salad. Service a little slow and dessert (rhubarb pavlova) was disappointing compared to the rest of the meal. Half price wine on Wednesdays can’t be beaten but they have just lost their sommelier who we missed.
