Dear sir/madam,

Overall was really good! Good food, not cheap but a top location... one thing I was very irritatad about..

How is it possible that my wife, my daughter and I were not allowed to enter the restaurant at 07.08 pm, we had a reservation on 07.15 pm. We were sent to the hallway to wait another 7 minutes?? I have never experienced this in my 57 years..maybe I am just an arrogant Dutchman.

Still a restaurant to enjoy..

We were visiting the Chateau Whistler for a birthday celebration. The dinner was lovely, well paced. Our server Melissa was warm and inviting but not overly so. The only improvement to the meal could be the way my husband's aged cut of beef arrived at the table. Because the sides are additional, this slab of brown meat arrived on a black slate with a small bowl of accompanying sauce. It was a bit underwhelming in terms of presentation. The candy floss at the end of the meal was enormous and whimsical but not needed after our ordered dessert was consumed. We liked the sentiment though. Perhaps a smaller more refined presentation could be considered?

We really enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere at the Grill Room last weekend. The service was excellent all-around, too. The crab cake is an terrific appetizer. The Caesar salad, while tasty, seemed a bit pretentious in its large leaf presentation. Sometimes great food doesn't have to look like you tried to make it look like great food. We shared the enormous steak sampler and there was plenty of food. The steaks were all very tasty but not as hot as we would have liked. The broccolini and mashed potato sides were great choices, at least. It is a very expensive restaurant with pricey but tasty wines. A nice treat once in a while if you feel you need the pomp but, in all honesty, the steak at the Keg a few nights prior was better. Still, you can't beat the romantic atmosphere and we enjoy dressing up now and then so we are very glad we chose the Grill Room for our last night together in Whistler.

We were running an hour late, informed the restaurant. No problem sir.
Cosy setting with a log fire set into the main wall. I opted for a steak, two recommendations were wheeled to the table for me to make a decision on which steak and what size. Nice touch.
Shared a plate of oysters. Lovely. Decent bottle of red to go with the steak. Also lovely. Skipped the dessert. Jet lag from the UK got the better of us.

The service and setting were excellent. We shared the Waygu beef between 3 and it was superb. My wife had the catch of the day which was Halibut which was also excellent . The restaurant was slightly noisier than I would have liked due to a large private function which then came in and took up two large tables. If you are dining here then definitely try the steaks.

Fabulous from the moment we were greeted at the front desk- our waiter was so attentive and listened intently to all our questions and requests. We were entertaining in-laws from Europe which could have been nerve wracking, but we ended up getting accolades for our choice. Lots of steak choices- rib eye was perfectly done. My husband continues to talk about the stuffed carrot appetizer. Slow elegant perfectly timed service and a quiet beautiful dining room. Gave 4 stars on value as 3 of us had Kir Royales to start. It was a surprise that they used Moët for $39 per glass! (They were delicious) Otherwise 5 plus stars all around.

I love this place. That being said this was the first bad meal I have had here in over a decade. Two steaks at the table were significantly over done. When one came back, was underdone. Lots of kitchen errors in the room that night. Waitress was incredible and went above and beyond to make up for it. Will give them one more chance.

We were greeted and seated immediately. Our servers were extremely nice, friendly and sweet. Especially I liked the sense of humor and the attitude from the waiter (who is originally from Germany, sorry I forgot his name). He and his personality made our experience much better... The food was delicious, especially the tomato soup and Wagyu steak. Unfortunately the Dungeness crab cake was not impressive... at the end we had very unpleasant experience with the taxi. We waited for over one hour and the staff didn’t offer anything till we had started explaining. Honestly, in my opinion when people come to have such dinner the hotel and restaurant should take care of their full positive experience.

We were a bit disappointed. We have dined at many fine restaurants so were expecting better. Plus is the staff were lovely, and the food tasty but there were a few details that were lacking. The pork belly wasn't crispy. The meals very small for the price. Lovely tenderloin steak though but was more like $50 than $64. Our water glasses were not refilled. It did not feel value for money. As fine dining should be an experience not just a nice meal.
