Not just sushi...

We went here with a Groupon and have been back at least 4 times since. If you want a quick inexpensive suhi meal though, don't go here (try Dundarave Sushi).. this will cost you a little bit more however if you are daring to pick something from their book-like menu, you have to try it at least once! and then you may be back like us... this place has incredible cooked Japanese dishes. I am addicted to the popcorn shrimp roll - you have to try this if you go (popcorn shrimp, lettuce, asparagus, wrapped in a soy wrap); tuna tataki superb, agedashi tofu, short ribs, flash fried halibut, beef terryaki, etc and I could go on. To be honest, I have not tried their standard maki rolls as they do cost almost double what I would pay for them at other sushi places. be prepared to pay $50+ dollars for two hungry people..

I had to rate the food a 2 only because I asked our server what was in the chicken burger, including ingredients as I am sensitive to a bunch of spices and foods. Everything arrived and it looked great until I took a bite. It was so heavily spiced, which I found out later was LOTS of salt and cumin, i couldn't eat it. The poutine was the only thing that saved me as that was great. Didn't eat the burger and no offer to make something else or replace it. not impressed; more so with the service than anything. I would not go back.

We went here during Cornocopia hoping to get into Sidecut, the newest steak house in the Four Seasons. It was full but the host showed us a menu for Fifty Two 80 which was basically the lounge/bar next to Sidecut. It was a busy Saturday night and they had a Burger and Fries special on for only $12... which is actually cheap for Whistler! We were pleasantly surprised when the biggest burger you have ever seen arrived with a bowl of fries as well (huge patty including an onion ring inside and all the fixings). The service was amazing (Adree I think her name was) and food was incredible. I didn't know what to expect from just a lounge but I think I'll eat here instead of the steak house next time... they had different specials for each day of the week and hoping to get some fish taco's next time..
Best Caramel Apples Ever!

I went here on the weekend and had this HUGE caramel apple with caramel, chocolate, nuts, marsmallows, and more chocolate on it. I was going to pass because of the cost (it is just an apple right?) but I am so glad I didn't. Now, I just have to decide which will be the next one I eat. I actually asked them to cut it for me because it was so big and they were very happy to do that which I thought was great service. I def recommend this place.

I go here regularly, but try to go either later (after 9pm) or early (before 6pm) to avoid a long wait. They do not take reservations so not a good place to pick if you are a large group. I find the best place to sit is at the bar as service is the best there and they let you sample the wine before choosing the perfect glass or bottle! The burrata cheese and prosciutto appie is great with a glass of wine, the salad's are good to share, and my favourite pasta has to be the gnocchi with mini meatballs but have never had a bad plate yet. Go here when you want good, simple, tasty food, great italian wine, and are not in a rush to go anywhere. The atmosphere is cozy. Love this place!
