Umberto: 5 Star Dining
A place for grown ups. Umberto's has an outstanding wine selection. Delicious from appetizer to dessert. While the decor is all dressed up, most of the patrons are not. Expect a hefty bill, but it's worth it.
Mongolio Grill: Chinese with a twist
I couldn't tell the difference between the food at Mongolio Grill and typical chinese food (same thing?), but who cares. It's is a build your own stir fry and you pay by weight. More than enough choices for ingredients and sauces. This place is a must!
THE WHISTLER SUSHI PLACE: EXPENSIVE AND NOT WORTH IT!
oh my god! we went to this place cuz we were too lazy to cook, and there were a lot of ppl in the restaurant so we thought to ourselves that it must be an all right place. ( turned out that everywhere you go, it is packed). after 30 mins + waiting for a seat for two, i began to feel the formation of a possible ucler in my stomach, and that was not it! HAD to wait for another 10 mins afterwards. the Food was way too expensive for what is worth. i understand it is more than other places, but it was way over priced.
Favorite Dish: the chicken pieces (it comes with 4 pcs) weren't too bad if you want to pay $10 over them. they are almost like FKC, without the extra coating.

Old Spaghetti Factory: Best value!
Definately the best deal for how much food you get! Soup or Salad, bread, entree and spumoni (Italian ice cream) are all included in the menu price for each entree.
This place is great for a morning after a hard night on the town (I should know). You can stop in and refuel all the much needed nutrients you pissed away the night before.
They have an old-fashioned scale at the front of the restaurant weigh yourself before and after...see who can put on the most weight. From our crew the winner put on a whopping 4 pounds...in one sitting remember.
Favorite Dish: All the pasta dishes are great. I had baked seafood fetucini or something and i liked it. Just be sure not to fill up on bread too much and don't forget to save room for ice cream!
The Keg: Nice enough...not too pricy
The Keg is a steakhouse chain in B.C. (maybe Canada I don't actually know). The one at Whistler is especially nice and is priced the same as the restaurants in Van. It is quite a large restaurant but Whistler is a busy place so try to make reservations or go for a late dinner. They do tend to run of out things if you go too late though!
Favorite Dish: I had the large prime rib when I was there and loved it. The price wasn't even that bad at $22.95 for good hunk of meat that was oh so juicy.
Dustie's Bar and BBQ: Best burgers and beer on the slopes
This bar at the base of Whistler Creekside offers excellent burgers and has a huge outside terrace for the sunny days.
I didn't stay for the nightlife, because Dusty's is a bit off on Whistler Creekside, but I heard this place gets going until late!
Favorite Dish: BBQ Beef Sandwich
Mongolie Grill: Mongolian feast
In this place, you choose your own ingredients of meats, seafood, vegetables, and sauces and hand it over to cook, who will prepare your food right in front of you.
Everything is very frech and extremely tasty.
You pay by the weight.
The Keg: For Great Steak
Well, maybe not great steak, but I've never been disappointed at the Keg. I spent New Year's eve at this Keg two years in a row, and it's been a blast each time.
Favorite Dish: I always order the Teriyaki Sirloin Classic. Very tasty.
Probably one of the best places in the village. The food is outstanding and the wine list is unbelievable. Too my surprise, the Canadian wines are quite good so give them a try. The menu has a full range of options, from poultry to meat to fish and everything is great. Make reservations as it is always crowded.
Favorite Dish: Filet
Araxi: Fine Cuisine in the Square
An eclectic gourmet dining experience. You will enjoy the experience.
Favorite Dish: They obviously do seafood very well given their location.

La Brasserie des artistes
Supposedly the best place for breakfast in Whistler. The patio was packed every morning when everywhere else was deserted. We didn't make it there but plan to next time!
Hope we don't starve
We found two kinds of restaurants in Whistler - expensive and not very good.
Since we had a kitchenette in our room, we ate in a lot.
Sushi Village: Freshest Sushi and Sashimi
This japanese joint is very famous in Whistler and packed each time we went there.
The Sushi and Sashimi are super fresh, and the rolls superb.
