The food was just okay. Nothing was exceptionally good. We got the scallops, smoked salmon, and clam chowder for appetizers and cod, mushroom bolognese, lamb, and venison for mains. The desserts were the best part of the meal - the apple Mille-feuille and panna cotta.

We felt absolutely deceived through and through the entire dining experience. The wait staff was not only unfriendly but we were also left with not even water to drink for over half an hour, and when she finally got to us, she was impatient. The description on the booking site does not match the actual menu. Although we prepaid for the kids we did not receive a kids menu. The food was mediocre at best, and the options were limited. Everything was definitely priced way above actual value, and we are saying this as a family who usually rates quality over expense. There was no entertainment, and the seats were quite crowded such that we didn't get a full view of the windows, not even a glimpse of snow.

We went here for a family dinner of 4 people. Our total, with tip, came out to close to CAD 400, and this included 1 appetizer for the table, 1 drink per person, and 1 entree per person. Entrees here average at CAD 50 per item, and most of their menu is pescatarian. Naturally, at this price point, one would expect excellent quality in terms of ingredients used, as well as the cooking, sadly, neither of which were delivered. My husband ordered an entree which contained mussels, and right from the first bite he could tell that they were not fresh (point proven later that night when he suffered from an upset tummy due to this dinner). My mother ordered an appetizer that was named "Roasted Rootdown Beet Salad" and the beets that arrived on her plate were just...raw slices, not to mention, that the other elements on that dish were just as tasteless (salt, anyone?). I ordered the Confit Artic Char, and the shrimp in this dish was clearly overcooked. Overall, a very disappointing and unnecessarily expensive affair, and in my opinion, the only weak link in Fairmont Whistler's amazing roster of bars and restaurants. Don't waste your money here, eat the The Mallard or Portobello instead!

A simple name can be deceiving. “Pork Chop” would appear to be an unadorned menu choice, but the well-balanced winter plate surprised my palate with a carnival of flavours. Wonderfully suited to a magical snowy night. So appreciated The Wildflower’s special touches and attentive service celebrating my milestone birthday. Thank you.

As a sommelier I found the wine list to be 1) not very interesting 2) priced 4x the actual cost in the lower end.... which limits sales of bottles in my opinion....and the choice by the glass was not very interesting.
I choose my meals often by which wine I would like to have and as a result had the braised short ribs. The truffle potatoes and carrots were good but the short ribs and dark sauce was AWFUL ..... just fat that was already solidifying on my plate..... Their was no flavour to discribe it but ‘DARK’.
My partner had the pork chop and everything was good and interesting...

James and I had a fantastic date night at Wildflower. There was a little mishap with James's main and Katie took action immediately and fixed it. I had lamb and it was just as delicious as the last time. The bartender that evening made the most fabulous pick me up I've ever tasted! We finished our evening with Katie's dessert recommendation. The panna cotta is the absolute best dessert on the menu.
The flavors we're bright and refreshing.

Thanks for looking after us Katie. We look forward to our next dining adventure at Wildflower.

James and I would also like to thank Topher for taking the time to to say hello - it was lovely to see you.

Everything was cooked properly, it just lacked seasoning and excitement. The menu reads much more exciting than it is. I found myself searching for most of the garnishes and flavors mentioned in the description of the dish. The menu reads like it is exciting, but in actuality it's bland and uninspired. It's a restaurant for old people with money.

We had one the best dining experience at Wildflower Restaurant at Chateau Whistler.
Since it was the week of States’ thanksgiving holiday, we had the room at the grill all to Ourselves.
Loved the check-in service. (Make sure you have your vaccination cards ready.)
Our waiter Marcus was top notch, very personable and fun. He had great knowledge of the menu and made the dinner most enjoyable. He was very responsive to our needs and went above and beyond expectations. Food was excellent.
Wine list exceeded expectations.
Overall 5 star!

It was my husband’s birthday. Our server Amanda was very nice and friendly. I had requested a small cake for my husband’s birthday and they exactly followed the instructions what I had mentioned. The food was top notch too. I am glad to have chosen this restaurant for our special occasion. Thank you Wildflower team. We had an amazing time 😊

Attended Cornucopia and attended Bubbles and Brunch. Attended 2 yrs ago and it was amazing. This year was no different with great variety of selections traditional breakfast , fresh omelets but also seafood, lamb, chicken. The desserts were fantastic and creative. A tad pricey but well worth the experience. Live music to boot made for a memorable experience

The food was extremely overpriced and taste not good as advertised. I had to send it back to the kitchen and ask for another dish which is not chewy and is tender. Learned the difference between bison and beef tartar though, as bison tartar they offer is not even close to beef tartar. The taste was completely different and poor. Oysters were very small even though the price was quite high. Duck was tender but the veggies were soaked with butter and almost floating in the butter. Overall experience is 2/10.

Great place to eat. Location is great and restaurant itself is very nice. Good spacing in between tables. Food is above average and very well done. Service is very good. Might have been a bit better but they might have been a bit short staffed. Pricing is ok, not great value but comparable to other $$$$ restaurants. As per usual all restaurants charge way too much for booze but we all know that so no surprise there.
Overall very nice!

Can’t believe we’re back in Whistler. It’s been a long while!
Coincidentally our friends were gonna be in the area as well and so we decided to have dinner all together. We hosted dinner for 12 persons from 4 families.
I am very happy we were accommodated when I made the reservations and they phoned us even to the date to assure us of our visit.
We ordered so much from appies to dessert and my friends were all satisfied with the Reataurant, the food and the service and of course we all enjoyed each others’ company.
