The best steak I've eaten in all of the palaces I've travelled and I'm lucky enough to live minutes away. The service is as good as the flavours.

Our server was fantastic, knew the mneu, checked to make sure we got what we wanted. Took time to talk with us without being a bother. Will be back when in Whistler again. Oh, and the wagyu steak was the best I've eaten (that's saying a lot)

Sidecut is our favourite restaurant. It has the best patio in Whistler, very quiet with someone playing guitar in the distance. Ask for a blanket or for one of the patio heaters if you think you might get chilly after the sun drops behind the mountains. The ever-helpful staff will gladly accommodate you.

Really high quality ingredients cooked expertly. We truly enjoyed every bite. Service is very friendly and the room is quiet and comfortable. The winelist is also good, but I would like to see the wines decanted: we chose a 2011 vintage and there was quite a bit of sediment in our glasses by the end... but it did nothing to spoil a very enjoyable evening and it added an interesting crunch to our last sip :)

Disappointing.
We had to negotiate to be seated in another table when the restaurant was mostly empty. They were trying to seat us next to a big table with several very young children singing loudly with each other. We asked to move to a quieter table, but was rebuffed. We were offered outdoor tables when we asked for an indoor table; this place was maybe 1/3 full!
Definitely not a high end experience and not as good as previous visits.
The food (quality and taste) was good but not true high end as compared to Hy's steakhouse or Bearfoot Bistro that we dined the nights before.

Went here for my engagement dinner with my fiancé and the entire experience was five stars all the way around. Luis was an amazing server and made our experience all the more special. We had the waygu and grass fed lamb and both dishes were absolutely perfect. The entire staff was very welcoming and was excited about our engagement along with us. Definitely a memorable experience!

My only regret was we waited to dine there until our last night in Whistler. If we'd gone earlier, we would have come back multiple times. I'm a bit of a steak snob, and this steak was one of the best I've ever had. And their mashed potatoes were the best I've ever had.

Only room for improvement would be the dessert menu. The selection and quality didn't match the rest of the meal.

Each time we visit Whistler we find a reason to go back to Sidecut! The service level is bang on with the Four Season's reputation as the restaurant manager checked in with us twice to ensure we were having a great evening. Our professional server, Bob provided excellent service that is attentive but not intrusive. He is quick to offer local knowledge if you ask what to see and do while visiting.

If a great steak is what you are looking for; Sidecut has not disappointed us after more than a dozen visits.

We came for the 3 course special but was disappointed to learn that there were 2 add-on prices for the steak. The food for the most part tasted great except the halibut came out a bit dry like it had been under the heat lamp too long. For the prices, we had greater expectations of this restaurant. It did not seem good value to me relative to other moderately price choices in town.

Excellent food and service. Our server made a fantastic wine recommendation. One of the best steaks I've ever had.

Unfortunately the evening was spoiled by a family with small children that would randomly scream, cry and even loudly sing an entire song. The parents were too busy with their phones to be bothered with parenting.

This restaurant needs to manage details on all levels. We booked specifically for a couple of interesting items on their posted menu on OpenTable only to find they weren’t offered on the menu in the restaurant. It almost felt like a Bait and Switch. We were also sat at a back table in an empty restaurant on a tippy table. When asked to be reseated, we were placed at another tippy table near the window. Ever try cutting a steak on a tippy table? This should never be an issue at a steak house. For a restaurant in a Four Seasons Hotel, we found this all to be inexcusable and decided to leave as we believed it to be indicative of what was to come. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to try the food, the items which we came for in the first place or otherwise. The manager was apologetic, professional and polite and offered to make things right somehow as we were getting our coat check but we had already committed to another reservation at that point. We hope that management would refocus their attention to the details of their operation rather than trying to save disappointed customers, particularly in such an upscale restaurant with upscale prices.
We don’t intend this to discourage anyone from visiting this restaurant as it could become one of the best in Whistler with a little effort.

Steaks were good! Sides were very good. Salads were large. Service was fantastic (sorry I can’t remember our waiters name, but he was top notch)! Helpful with food and wine. Wine list was a bit pricey but still had a wide range and wines by the glass. Great night

As regulars at Sidecut we love the service, and the food is outstanding. Their equipment and technique means you get a perfectly cooked steak every time. Sides and desserts are creative and tasty. Highly recommend- one of the best restaurants in Whistler and one of the best steakhouses period.

Went to Sidecut for our anniversary dinner. Really enjoyed the meal, everything was really good. Thought the wine list was lacking options that were good and on the cheaper side.

The food was outstanding! We had steak and 2 sides. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were delish! Our server, Craig, is the best ever! We remembered him from our dinner there last February! We will definitely go back the next time we are in Whistler, and highly recommend this restaurant, especially if you appreciate a FANTASTIC steak!

Steak that melts in your mouth!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Sidecut.

Let's first focus on the food! The appetizers were very very good, but the main meal was outstanding! I had the beef tenderloin (filet mignon) that just melted in my mouth. My husband had the ribeye with a pepper rub and blue cheese topping which he loved as well. The sides were also amazing! We had the mushrooms cooked in sherry, broccolini, and garlic mashed potatoes. All delicious!

Now let's talk about the service. It was outstanding! Our server, Lison, was attentive, friendly and helpful. As matter of fact all the employees were friendly, courteous, and attentive. When our server, Lison, was busy with a customer, another server popped over to help us with our questions before we ordered. Lison, also, provided a great recommendation for wine. All in all a great meal out in Whistler!

I don’t write a lot of reviews, so take this for what it’s worth, but SIDECUT was a disappointment. After checking in with our reservation they sat us at the closest table to the bar area, which was very loud so it mostly felt like we were doing “happy hour” for the first half of dinner. It took 15 minutes to have our waiter show up after two other wait staff stopped by to get us water and welcome us. The food was overall fairly good, but the NY strip was fairly fatty and a thin cut, so not great by my standards. My kudos go to the bar staff, they make great cocktails and were very helpful to provide some matches as we left the restaurant so I could enjoy a cigar on the walk home. Overall I would give a higher recommendation to Hy’s or the Grill Room as better steakhouses in Whistler.

So granted, it was Valentine’s Day, so it all might be better on a non-holiday... great food but very pricey for the ambience and being rushed through dinner. We asked for a quieter table, farther from the bar, but were told people had requested those already. We took that to mean they were guests at the hotel (we were not). So—request a window seat if you can! It will be quieter and much more romantic.
