We got engaged at the Wildflower and Nick Humphries was amazing. I emailed beforehand to setup a special night and Nick went about and beyond to make sure that it happened perfectly. Our waitress Rebecca was also amazing and the night couldn’t have been more amazing. Thanks to the Wildflower for everything they did. Food was great too!

We both had the 3 course Turkey Dinner which was very good. However, we would not ever order such a dinner again because there was simply too much food for us to really enjoy. I might recommend giving options as to whether patrons want a single course, a two course or a three course meal. For those of us that have made it into our mid sixties, many of us do not have the same appetite that we had when we were younger.

The food was very nice ( although one of us wasn’t well later that night: hopefully, that was just coincidental. The service was probably over-attentive, but it was informed and thorough. The room is beautiful, and it is a lovely place to have a meal. All in all, it is a very nice place for a group meal without being over-fussy, and it is suitable for children, unlike some of the Fairmont’s smarter restaurants A most enjoyable evening.

We had a very good experience at the Wildflower. Our waiter was knowledgeable and recommended a couple of wines to pair with our meals, which we took him up on. The food was tasty but I don't think it was anything "out of this world". Definitely not the best meal I've ever had and not as good as I would hope for a meal from such an establishment. I ordered the Watermelon Salad and Bison Steak (med-rare) and my boyfriend ordered the Gazpacho and Massive Meatball and Spaghetti. I would recommend the Watermelon Salad but the steak was pretty tough to cut (the waiter had replaced my butter knife with a steak knife before the entrees arrived). The Gazpacho and Spaghetti were very good, from what I understand. Again, the food was not bad at all, we were just hoping for a bit from the menu.

The menu choice and location was great& the waitress was really helpful. The atmosphere was also really nice. My husband's fish main dish was excellent but the other dishes were only average. The avocado in the starter was too hard to eat easily which was a shame. The steak was more medium-well done rather than the medium rare requested. There was also a very limited dessert menu which was too bad. The seats we had (although they are very stylish) are too low& too deep for normal height people to eat at the table comfortably, we probably should have asked for different seats... thank-you for a nice evening though.

Very friendly knowledgeable staff. Excellent varied menu and daily additions to regular menu. Local ingredients in many dishes. Although quite pricey, particularly wine, the value for the food is better than most other Whistler restaurants. There is something on the menu to please everyone. Generous portions and overall feeling the server was genuine with advice, and doing her best to please, contributed to one of the best dining experiences we have had for some time.

Wildflower provides a wonderful evening for us. There were 6 of us mom hoping to have a nice evening out with out kids. This restaurant definitely provided us that. The food was amazing and our server (Mack) was excellent. The service was thoughtful and sincere. Our table was situated in a quiet spot where we could catch up and also had a great view of the garden. Wildflower was certainly the highlight of our weekend. Thank you!

The watermelon salad with pickled avocado was outstanding. Lamb was tasty though a bit too fatty. Chocolate cake was just ok, nothing special. Great service. Good drinks and wine recommendation. Some guests were rather loud trying to keep their kids entertained even though the ambience was upscale fine dining.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a varied menu and excellent service. The hotel was a bit noisy and busy with all the conferences and activities going on, so it was quite loud for an intimate dinner, but the staff did their best to create a pleasant ambience nonetheless. The drinks were very expensive which didn't feel in line with the rest of the experience, but overall a nice evening.

I was there on Mothers day with 7 other ladies from Wisconsin for a special Mothers day. My daughters and son had purchased a couple of bottles of Prosecco as a gift to all of us which was very nice but we never knew that, as nothing was ever said by the servers. A glass of champagne was included with brunch and they poured that and then some of us ordered ceasars as well.
It's only when we left the restaurant that my daughter asked how we liked the brunch and did we get the 2 bottles delivered to the table. We said no, but we had champagne. Apparently, they had extra glasses on the table for orange juice(complimentary with brunch) so we could make a mimosa. It was all very confusing to us. Had we known that we probably wouldn't have ordered Ceasars and would have loved to sip on some mimosa's. It was a buffet and the food was delicious, but the delivery of the special gift of the bottles of prosecco would have made it even nicer. I did go over and ask the General Manager what happened as we were still in the lobby when my daughter called. There were problems with their computer that morning. I asked him to call my daughter, and deal with her as she is the one who confirmed a couple of days ahead & paid $160.00 for the 2 bottles. He did call and did not charge for the bottles which was very honourable. We know the thought was there from my children but the delivery never happened. Thank you Rafael.

The staff was excellent from maitre d'hotel to what would an a lesser restaurant be a busboy. Good choice of wines by the glass. I had the lamb shank which was delicious and enough for me to take home for the next day; my husband had an excellent chowder and bison, which was quite tasty. We shared a chocolate-caramel-brownie parfait which I can only imagine an athletic 20-year-old could manage on his/her own. Excellent. We dine here every time we go to Whistler.

The host greeted us at our reservation time then our server Mack did a very good job meeting our needs. The pork appetizer I ordered was amazing and my wife and daughters were pleasantly satisfied with their selections. Our entrees came out in a timely manner and were spot on. The potatoes that accompanied my steak were awesome. Lastly, I highly recommend the Blood Orange Sorbet.

Service was very good, attentive and seemed to be there when needed. We started with a salad and the vegetable pekora, which were very good. Mains were a pork chop and cioppino, which were recommended. Both were very good. The kids menu was perfect for the kids. The wine list had quite a variety as well. Aside from the price, which we found a little high, a great experience.

Good experience overall. I booked through Open Table, received a confirmation email, but when we got to the restaurant, they did not have my reservation in their system. Not sure if it was a computer glitch, maybe something on Open Tables end? Not sure what happened. We showed the confirmation email to the host, they said that’s all they needed to confirm we did have a booking and they were able to make something work. Overall good dining experience at Wildflower.

We were traveling from the US and chose this restaurant because it was located in the hotel where we were staying and after a full day of skiing, we wanted to “chill” in the hotel. Martin, our waiter, was very nice and we enjoyed discussing golf with him since it was the weekend of the Masters Golf Tournament. Disappointed that the bottle of wine we ordered first was not “in stock”, but we didn’t find this out until 30 minutes after being seated. So we got off to a late start. Our meal was very good, BC Salmon and the Gnocchi special. The sundae dessert was yummy! Food was very good, but not exceptional. The breakfast buffet in the morning was wonderful...lots of choices!!!!!
