    By far the most incredible meal my husband and I have had in the Kootenays. Everything was top quality and the staff and chef went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special. This has definitely become our #1 go to for a beautiful dinner out. Simply magnifique!

    We had such a fantastic dinner! The steelhead was incredible as were the parsnips, the yam risotto and the winter green salad. We topped it off with sticky toffee pudding and a chocolate mousse shared between four of us. Such a special and memorable evening! Highly recommend!

    Velvet deck is wonderful. The music was inside restaurant which might have been too loud for gentle voice conversing, but since we were outside it was reduced coming through the open deck doorway.

    This is a really nice place to eat , we were surprised at how good the food was and how nice the staff . I had the most delicious grilled salmon on cedar plank with root veggies , which I recommend . Another night I did the separate vegetable servings and we had so much food . Great wine list , unfortunately never tried the dessert . We ate early so it was very quiet , but sure how loud it could get when super busy .

    It’s basically a steakhouse now. The chef has a distinctly different definition of a « poutine ». It does have the three ingredients of potatoes, cheese and gravy but that’s where the similarities ends. Have the dish explained first… Service was excellent and management went out of it’s way to make sure that we left totally satisfied.

    Super tasty! Always great service, even working through the difficulties of COVID, everyone has been wonderful. I love the different styles of different menus and not constantly doing the same thing over, and over. Wonderful, personal staff with great ingredients and on the foot of the best mountain in the country, what more could you ask for?

    Menu changes I believe misses the mark. Options leave much to be desired. I know they have a new concept, but I think they will come to regret it. Pricing high but not crazy for a ski hill or the times, but little too much maybe for locals beyond the ski hill. I would still leave room for a good burger. The meatloaf sandwich was not great. Overly heavy with the fried bits and the dense ciabatta bread kills any chance the sandwich had to make an impression. Good luck. We will try you again, I'm sure.

    They recently changed their menu and it is now more of a sharing concept where most of the menu items are for 2-4 people to share. The individuals and myself that were in our dinner party found this challenging as we all had to agree on what to order as opposed to just ordering what we felt like individually. Half way through dinner we saw burgers come out and asked our waitress what they were because we didn’t see it in the menu and she responded that it was an individual item from the “All Day Menu”. We were super disappointed as we weren’t informed that there was a secondary menu in which we could order individual meals if we wanted to. Food and service was still excellent though. Extremely overpriced though for a small town.
