We dined at AB as a party of 6 last week. The shared appetiser plate was an absolute winner - recommend it 100%. We decided to focus on Canadian fare - the Elk was a little overwhelmed by the foie gras it came with but the Bison well worth a try. Wine list was good but a little pricy.

We visited once and loved it so much that we went back again. We are vegans and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The first time we went we are the vegan option on the menu and the second time they just cooked off menu for us so that we didn't have to eat the same. The staff... More

This restaurant had a casual and funky vibe and the food and cocktails were elaborate and unique. They had a fairly extensive list of cocktails to choose from, and the bartender was keen to explain each one should you ask. They also have 2 beers on tap and a few bottle beers as well. The kitchen staff were clearly very... More

What a wonderful meal at Alta Bistro. The service was a little clunky to start with as we waited (having made a prior reservation) for 20 mins with only a cursory comment from the front of house that the table was being prepared for us. However once we were seated it was a different story. The wait staff were friendly... More

My family and I ate here for New Year's Day dinner, and it was really great. The menu is unique and very tasty. The staff was amazing and attentive, and our server was personable, helpful, and knowledgeable about the menu. The atmosphere was great - both family friendly but also couple-friendly. The restaurant was easy to locate and within walking... More

We dined at Alta Bistro in mid-December and wow, this place always blows me away every time. The staff is incredibly warm and friendly and took care of us right away. The restaurant was full and the 3 of us were seated at our favorite spot in the restaurant, at the beautiful bar. Gina took very good care of us,... More

We made reservations here for Christmas Eve dinner and it was fabulous. The staff were amazing and took good care of us and the food was fabulous. I don't rate 5 stars lightly and I wouldn't hesitate for this place. Best food we had in Whistler.

We had dinner here about a year ago and thought it was fabulous so we went back this year. The second time around it was every bit as good. A really excellent restaurant. Expensive but not outrageous (about CAN$110/person, including beverages and an 18% service charge automatically added for parties of 6 or more), but well worth it. Not formal...on... More

Locally inspired cuisine set in a casual bistro atmosphere. Chef Nicholas Cassettari combines his classic training, top tier experience, and world travels with the best of B.C.'S bounty to create the fine flavours at Alta Bistro. Service is casual and prompt in the dining room and bar. The wine list is French focused, with the best of B.C. As well as international selections (many by the glass) with Enomatic machines dispensing fine and eclectic selections to pair with Alta's cuisine. Mixologists behind our bar craft some of Whistler's finest cocktails. The cozy bistro atmosphere is lively and welcoming. Reservations are a must.
