The kids menu was fabulous, but my dinner, the risotto was poorly done. The Aborio was still crunchy and the consistency was more of a rice soup. They had a good choice of oysters, but a couple of the oysters were shucked incorrectly and more butchered than shucked. I will not be returning.

The atomphere is warm and very cozy. The staff are so helpful and caring and work hard. We appreciate them and the chefand his helpers as well. The turkey was so tender and juicy so much flavour to the meat sides and the dressing. All are fresh ingredients locally grown produce. The seafood including oysters are the freshest brought in....

I've been coming here for the last seven years and sometimes I would even drive from Vancouver to have a great dinner at Araxi. Before their minor interior renos, they have a great wine room which was quiet and good for a romantic dinner. The place is usually busy and is fairly loud. Food is consistently good and is priced...

They were offering the 5 course anniversary dinner for $35 - so I can't review the "standard" experience on a typical visit. But, the food was excellent in every way, the service was top-flight. Lots of attention to detail. For you wine nerds - the wine list is EXTREME. Cult favorites Kosta Browne, screaming eagle, ... others - MANY bordeaux... More

Busy restaurant, but managed to snag a seat at the bar, my favorite place in any restaurant. Great bartender who made me a great finned tonic with a craft BC gin. Ordered oysters. They were so delicious. Came with fresh horseradish and a raspberry vinaigrette. Decor is subdued and perfect for a romantic evening or a fine dinner with friends.

Amazing food, attentive service, nice surroundings but incredibly noisy. The dining room was packed full, resulting in a very noisy dinner service. Pricey but expected for a fine dining restaurant.

Description
The culinary cornerstone in the heart of Whistler Village, Araxi enjoys a long held international reputation for excellence in food, wine and hospitality. As an early pioneer of farm to table dining, Executive Chef James Walt's seasonally focused menus celebrate the excellence of locally sourced ingredients. Walt's innovative and skillfully executed dishes-from savoury starters through delicious desserts-deliver intelligent compositions and unforgettable flavours. Centrally located in the main square of the village, Araxi boasts a contemporary dining room coloured in warm earth tones - and a sleek Oyster Bar that exudes the passion and craftsmanship that lie at the heart of the restaurant. The lively lounge, which features a year-round indoor/outdoor bar, is Whistler's favourite gathering place for both locals and visitors alike.
