    We enjoyed our meal at the restaurant. We were greeted immediately and checked in on regularly. The food was delicious and the options were varied while also being elevated. The servers were all attentive, and seeming to be enjoying themselves, creating a comfortable environment. The music was the perfect volume to allow for privacy of conversation but also not having to strain to hear or speak loudly to be heard. The tables, utensils, plates were clean and the chairs were comfortable!

    This is a a favorite place if ours! We love the atmosphere. Huge windows overlooking the ski hill, or sit on the patio at the base of the ski hill in the fresh Rossland air. The food is top notch. I love how you can see the chefs preparing the food!! My fave drink there is the slope side. They also have a great wine list and a really great beer list it's a bit pricey but definitely worth it You won't be disappointed!

    Local flavours with big city style. I thought this was better than most high end Vancouver meals I’ve had. Great variety of BC wines from some of the niche vineyards like Roche, food was perfectly prepared and portions were large. Overall 5 stars and I can’t wait to be in Rossland again.

    Delicious meal to celebrate Father’s Day. Portions were great as always- couldn’t finish all the food. Great simple kids options. There was live music when we arrived to dinner but we picked a table at the opposite side to where the musicians were- otherwise it would of been too loud but it was perfect. Service was great, I wish the server smiled more.. would of created a more warming interaction. Overall amazing.

    We celebrated our 44th anniversary at the Velvet, and had a wonderful time. Calamari appies were delicious, great crunchy coating yet perfectly cooked! Both appies and main courses more than filled us up, and again were perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the view of the ski-hill where we spent many happy days in younger years. Our server was competent, friendly and conversational. Thanks Daniel for the celebratory bubbly, etc!! As delicious a meal as I’ve ever had away from home!! Thanks to all for a memorable anniversary dinner!

    Food was excellent as always, so was the service. Lack of parking at the Josie was a problem due to bicyclists occupying all available spots and the hotel concierge not caring and laughing our complaint off. The restaurant quality is top notch and you get what you pay for, a premium dining experience!

    This is an edit of my previous brunch review from May 14th as an update on my experience at The Velvet Restaurant. After leaving my review (which was less than complimentary) I received a follow-up message from the restaurant manager very shortly after. It is clear that they take their reviews and customer experience very seriously and it was appreciated that they took the time to reach out and follow-up with me. My family and I did return to The Velvet to give it another try, this time for dinner service. The food, service, and overall dining experience was night and day from our last visit and we were very happy with everything. It is commendable that The Velvet took the time to turn a bad experience into a positive one and I would gladly recommend this restaurant as a venue for a nice dinner out or a special occasion.
