This was our first dining experience at this new establishment. Open for evening dining only, the reservation was accepted efficiently and pleasantly. Upon entering the premises, we were greeted immediately and seated efficiently. The décor is pleasing to the eye, and it was obvious that a good deal of effort was put into the appearance and atmosphere. The outdoor seating area looked very nice and comfortable as well.
There was no annoyingly loud background music or televisions blaring. The lighting was quite bright as there are no curtains along the two glass walls. There were lots of staff around.
After seating, there was a delay in taking our drink order. The least expensive white wine was $35 or $8 a glass for the import. The selection was not extensive, but acceptable.
The food menu was also not extensive yet interesting as well. There were several local game choices: bison ribs, elk sausage and arctic char. The costs were a little pricey, but not outrageously expensive. Service was pleasant, but a little spotty. Food arrived in reasonable time. Presentation was excellent, but the entrée, while good, did not quite live up to the presentation. The appetisers and the desserts were excellent.
By the end of the meal, the unpadded seats were starting to get a bit uncomfortable. At peak dining time, the restaurant was half full.
The premises, including the washroom, was spotlessly clean. For one bottle of wine, appetisers, entrée and dessert, our bill was for $155 exclusive of tip.
I would suggest requesting seating in the upper mezzanine area as a more intimate dining area.
Overall, this is an upscale restaurant that is trying hard. I expect the service will improve as they continue on, and we will very likely return to this welcomed addition to Whitehorse dining.
