We were told to go to the edgewater by the fairmont concierge people a few weeks ago.
They said you have to go there because it is 'so whistler' and the 'food is really top notch'.
They were so right and we were so happy we did.
Our overall impression was that we'll be back as much as we can (if we get to Whistler more often). Unbelievable views from the dining room, although I don't know if that works as well in the darker winter months. We got there at 5:30 and we took forever to make up our minds as we couldn't stop looking at the alpenglow on the mountains from across the lake.
When the food arrived, it was outstanding. Venison medallions and wild salmon. The chef obviously is top notch. Had a nice zing to the flavour and there was a nice selection of crisp vegetables to go with it. (I'm not a fan of those places where you have to order every last piece of your meal - a la carte). The Edgewater didn't disappoint!
On our night, the servers were pretty busy and perhaps understaffed. They were very competent people though. Very knowledgeable about wine and when they stopped for air, they had lots to tell us of the surrounding area. Nice people and certainly on our wavelength.
As said before, the ambience was to die for. Unbelievable location on an unbelievable property. Loved the music choice too.

I like this place. Very popular. Not overpromised and they certainly deliver.
I like the menu. The prices for two was a bit heavy though and we certainly go there on occasion. The room is nice but incredibly hard to hear (for old timers like me) as there's alot of hard surfaces in the restaurant.
A definte must do in Whistler.

We really liked our experience here the 2x we went.
Great concept. Very nicely decorated. Good value.
Loved the chairs. Nice art. Seemed to appeal to a younger set.
Servers were really helpful.
We'll be back for sure.
