A friend of ours was visiting us last week and he heard about Liliget and wanted to try it out. I did some searching online and heard many good to glowing reviews about this restaurant. Being probably the only First Nations fine dining restaurant really intrigued me.
Upon entering the restaurant, it's beautiful. The decor in unique and you sit at tables that make you feel as if you are sitting on the floor (sort of how they have tables at some Japanese restaurants).
Our server was very nice. He has a softness in his manner and was quite friendly.
We ordered the halibut, an order of elk, and a sampler platter with Salmon, Cod, Oyster, Buffalo smokie, Venison, wild rice and some vegetables.
My halibut was quite dissappointing. It was tough, chewy and very bland. I do like fish that is simple so I can enjoy the flavour, but this was really no good. The texture was poor as well as the flavour. The platter was amiss as well. The only seem that seemed to be enjoyed was the elk; however, was a little overpowering by the sauce.
It's a shame because we felt the concept was a very good one, but unfortunately it was a let down. Perhaps they have declined in quality because I felt mislead by the reviews I had heard. Anyhow, a nice ambient experience, but poor food experience.
