Amazing service and staff, drinks were on point, food was pretty disappointing, crab gnocci had almost no crab and tasted really bland, no flavor. Rabbit was ok but came with a mound of cold uncooked hard beans. Get better food at red lobster, maybe just what we ordered though.

Excellent food and service. Our server, Katie, was very attentive! Food was very delicious. We ordered a sablefish, a salmon, and 2 steaks! Would definitely come back again!

Our entrees were fantastic, great portions and we enjoyed the sticky toffee pudding which was just delightful, if only on the smallish side. Great service.

An epic gastronomic experience. Splendid. Attentive service and knowledgeable servers. The menu is superb, the flavours unexpected yet perfectly balanced. The rabbit was perfect: salty yet smooth, tender yet textured. The deserts are simply works of art, both to the eyes and the palate. The staff also went above and beyond and put together a special desert offering and champagne for us at the end of the meal, as we had come to celebrate 20 years of service of two coworkers. Overall, a wonderful experience. I will eagerly anticipate returning.

We booked this restaurant almost a week in advance for a special ‘last night in Whistler’ dinner and we were very much looking forward to the experience. Our hotel in the village dropped us off and in we went to the Fairmont at the appointed time. Imagine our surprise and dismay when we discovered that the restaurant was closed for the evening. No contact from the restaurant at all despite having our cell and email. How incredibly careless and rude. Did they not check the bookings for that evening or did they just decide to let us discover they were closed when we arrived? Then to make things worse the concierge booked us into Sidecut next door but when we went they were closed for a private function and had never heard of us. If Wildflower is as unprofessional and sloppy with their food as they are with guests then I guess we were lucky not to eat there. Thanks to them our last night in Whistler was ruined.

The presentations of most of the dishes we ordered were stunning with artfully arranged sauces and details. We took more food pictures than usual. Service was good until the restaurant filled up and then slowed down to a crawl. Most of our dishes were delicious, but the fish special looked better than it tasted - 5 star appearance, bland taste. The first dessert on the menu, the fancifully named Creakamus River Rock or something like that, was a gorgeous plate with blueberry sorbet, a kind of chocolate pudding, and all kinds of small details that looked like a picture from a natural setting.

Excellent food. Large and quite busy restaurant, as you'd expect in a big hotel. The hotel bar/ lobby was just next door so there was quite a lot of noise. The food was surprisingly good and the kids buffet was a huge hit

We expected for from a Fairmont Restaurant. We took the spring Menu, but main courses where not good. Food was not tasty. We complained about it and they told us it was a new menú not tested but in spite we left food they charged.
Good things to say. There is a great children buffet. The place is nice and the enviroment pleasant.

Tomato appetizer good
Desert (fix menu) average—rubrarb
Entree of rabbit (fix menu) was poor - very salty prosciutto wrap and meat not cooked thoroughly/tender. My husband I left most of it. We gave the feedback to staff to inform chef. Suggest striking from menu
Staff were friendly, courteous. Room pleasant

We love dining at The Wildflower during our visits to Whistler. The new menu with some classics incorporated in was refreshing and we enjoyed trying new dishes. The children’s menu is always fabulous! Service was good and the dining room is quiet but family friendly.

Wonderful food, but restaurant was understaffed with servers. Our server was terrific, but she had way too many tables. People spent $100 or more each for dinner and weren’t getting the service they deserved. It wasn’t so bad for us because we were there fairly early. I am sure others suffered.

This restaurant has en excelent chef. Congratulations, the food was excellent and that a big compliment coming from a former food critic. Fantastic evening!
What could have been better was the service. They didn’t know much about what they were serving.

Management is understaffing the restaurant that works hard to provide a good dining experience. Talk with management demonstrates need to replace or retrain bit fundamentals of the restaurant are good.

Food and ambiance great. Service was at high speed, barely finished our salads and entrees were being delivered could have been in and out in an hour. Not the service expected from a Fairmont hotel restaurant.

My group was just underwhelmed. There were so many misses in the front (host and waiter), suggesting that someone should review the management. A well run restaurant should not need waiters "auctioning" the dishes ("who ordered the chicken" etc), bringing out multiple courses at once, room temperature white wine, and staff that appears so totally freaked out that it is difficult to relax. The wine list is a serious profit center, with too little consideration of value. If you are staying in the hotel and don't want to leave, perhaps just lower your expectations and eat in the bar.

We love the wildflower but the duck leg was sparse and then I ordered ice cream for dessert and was given a kids ice cream with sprinkles on it ... I am 43 and my 9 yr old was given an adult brownie dessert - mix up which server was aware of but didn't sort out. Normally service outstanding. Husband had lamb shank and was fantastic. Would be good if they could have a more treasonable selection of wine with some better price points.

I went to Wildflower with my husband and 4 of our closest friends. We were in town for a skiing vacation and needed a place for 6 for dinner. The service was outstanding. We were greeted immediately upon arrival and seated within a minute. The waiter was fantastic: attentive, knowledgeable and he had a wonderful demeanor. He made our meal more enjoyable. The food was fantastic and everyone found something on the menu. I had a delicious cocktail and my friends enjoyed a bottle of wine.
