Fantastic dinner. Outstanding food, attentive and friendly service in an excellent ambience. One of the best meals in Canada.

We were really impressed with the food (although the prices were a bit ridiculous), and our server was charming. The only problem is that there seems to be a double standard with the maitre d' -- my wife and daughter were both told to remove their hats in the restaurant (which is appropriate given the atmosphere), but throughout our meal, we observed several other guests who wore hats and were given no trouble about it whatsoever. This feels like a double standard and did not leave me with a good impression. Also, the maitre d' asked if we were celebrating anything special, and I told him, "it is our last night in Whistler" -- normally when customers are asked a question like this, the restaurant presents them with something small but special -- for example, an amuse bouche, a dessert to share, or a glass of champagne. Instead, we were given nothing. Compare that to Il Caminetto and Araxi (where we dined the previous two nights), both of which provided us with some small dessert bites, umprompted, and without any need for us to mention a special occasion. I will also add that Il Caminetto and Araxi were both less expensive than Wildflower.

We came here for Valentine's Day during a weekend trip to Whistler. The service we received was above and beyond. I have never been to any dining establishment that made an effort to learn our names which was a really nice treat. The food was amazing and the restaurant itself was very quaint. We would love to come back to try some of the other items on the menu

If you want fancy food with a McDonald’s atmosphere then this is the place for you. Diners wearing t-shirts, young children RUNNING around the restaurant in bare feet with their BAREFOOTED patents- a clear health code violation. Not the servers fault nor the kitchen, but very much the fault of the management. Atmosphere impacts the quality of the dining experience and this one most negatively. We have dined at this restaurant multiple times in the past and found it to be elegant and pleasant with excellent food. Well no more and we will not return.

The Wildflower Restaurant is a fine-dining restaurant in the tradition of the late 20th century era; refined, quiet, and very comfortable. The enjoyment of dining there starts at its entrance where you are greeted politely by a friendly staff member who quickly summons your personal table waiter to escort you to your table. The enjoyment doesn't end until one leaves the establishment, fully satisfied by a beautifully presented meal prepared to one's individual desire. My wife and I chose the sockeye salmon for our main serving and it was full of flavour and soft in texture, truely a delight to eat! We have returned each winter for the past 15 years as part of our annual skiing vacation from "down-under" to this wonderful restaurant and have never been disappointed by doing so.

For our last night in Whistler we had a great experience trying out available vegan dishes (vegetable pakora and BC Mushroom). The service was first class as was the food including the coffee and vegan brownie for dessert. Restaurant staff were welcoming, attentive and quick to clear away dishes and stealthy setup tables when folks around we done.

The food is good and the portions are large for Whistler’s finer dining scene. The menu is split with half of the selections for sustainability Planet 21. With that in mind, I personally did not find that menu’s food combination too appealing. Both my sons had the Hanceville Grass fed Beef, which was an open plate ravioli on that menu, and the presentation could really be worked on. I had the West Coast Cioppino which is a mixed seafood stew, it was very tasty. My husband had the Bear and Flower Pork, which he found very filling. The ambiance is lovely but it is very family oriented being on the ski resort and we were surrounded by tables with very young children late in the evening. Service is professional.

Wildflower was a disappointment in every way possible. 3 people in our party ordered the pork belly which was 90% fat and cold in the center. I had the sablefish which was very fishy.
For dessert we ordered the caramel and coco-nut cake. The waitress reassured us that coco-nut (how it’s written in the menu) meant coconut, not tree nuts, and would be safe for our son who has a nut allergy. When the cake came there was clearly a layer of nuts and could have been a huge disaster if we weren’t vigilant about double checking.
The two cakes tasted like what we’d get in a second rate NY diner.
We arrived at 7:45 for an 8pm reservation, the reception was cold and stiff - were told we wouldn’t be seated until our reservation time. 8pm came and we were still not called. When I reminded receptionist that we’d been waiting he ran into the dining room to set the table - he obviously forgot about us.

All in all a forgettable experience. There are many much better dining options in Whistler.

We’ve gone here most times we’re in whistler. If this restaurant was in Los Angeles were we live. I probably wouldn’t. Example, we got the special of the night as one of the dishes, pan seared cod with pasta shells in a delicious sauce. Cod was very tasty but over cooked, pasta was great but the sauce was so powerful that you could not enjoy the simple cod after the first bite. To me it’s a whistler issue as a whole. Food overwhelmed and not finessed once you go outside a plain filet of beef. Bearfoot restaurant have the best true metropolitan dishes. Still this is a good restaurant and will come back because of the lack of choices.

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.
