The hotel is splendid, unfortunately the restaurant is a disgrace and needs a root and branch upgrade. Service was miserable, slow and eventually rude when called to task after waiting over an hour. My wife does not eat meat, her fish came smothered in Veal gravy......God only knows why, the so called waiter thought it was OK and normal. Breakfast... More

We attended as part of a business group, with a fixed menu and a private room. The food was delicious, and although not inexpensive, it was reasonable all things considered. The service was pleasant, but far too slow. It may well be due to the kitchen and not our waiter. We weren't rushing, but we didn't have our main course... More

We hoped to go through a gastronomic experience....but that was really not the case. The food is ok and our review would be good if the place did not pretend by its style and prices to be an exclusive restaurant. We are far from a one star Michelin level. First, couple simple observations that do not fit with a top... More

I had a gift certificate for my stay here and it included breakfast. It was delicious. There is a plentiful buffet with fresh fruit, breads, sausage, bacon, ham, yogurt, cereal, etc. And then a wonderful lady on guard to make you your eggs any way you'd like them. I had a delicious omelet. One lady serving but it was very... More

We only had breakfast here. However, the buffet was exceptional, the service very good, the decor elegant, and the view unsurpassed.

Last night we had dinner at the Quintessence with my husband and friends. The server was very courteous and helpful! The view of the lake was breathtaking! The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous, but most of all the food was succulent! We loved our experience although for one bottle of wine two appetizers and two entrées or main courses we paid... More

Had dinner here last weekend and the whole experience from the entry down the staircase to the view from the outdoor dining are was just excellent. Wide choice in menu but all three of us choose the duck duo and it was outstanding. The foie gras starter also went down a treat with the one who chose it. Service was... More

A gourmet restaurant in a ski town. Excellent food from appetizers to desert. Excellent service. Beautiful setting overlooking the lake. Eat outside if the weather permits. Recommend the duck and sweet potato poutine, the duck duo entrée and the steelhead trout.

Thank olsondo
