Quattro At Whistler is the third outpost of the Quattro family of restaurants. This mountain location serves up contemporary Italian cuisine with a special focus on service and their extensive wine list.
i and my childhood friends went there for a reunion dinner, and we had their L'Abuffata, which is a chef's tasting menu served platter style for interactive sharing. Not only was the food delicious, but the portions were huge! At the price they charged, it represented great value for money. The wine list had a good selection of B. C. and imported wines. All dinner participants enjoyed that dinner very much and congratulated me for picking a great restaurant, but it is in fact the chef and servers who deserve the congratulations. The managers were very responsive to numerous emails from me before the dinner date regarding the reservation and fine details of the dinner arrangement, and at the dinner, service was friendly and attentive. The decor was fun and classy at the same time. A wonderful choice for dining at Whistler.
It doesn't get better than QUATTRO AT WHISTLER, the food, the flavors, the style, the substance, it all stands out. Favorites include: RADICCHIO BOCCONCINI, SPAGHETTI QUATRRO, FETTUCCINE TARTUFATE, BRANZINO ALLA CROSTA and FILETTO ETRUSCA. Yes it is pricey but you get what you pay for, a fantastic meal and a night out to remember.
Had an anniversary dinner here, tried the $45 3-course dinner. We ordered a total of 6 different dishes: both appetizers get a 4 rating. One pasta gets a 5 (mushroom fusilli) and the other a 2 (the fettuccine with duck confit was way to salty and not fully edible). The meat dishes in the entrees were both 4's, but the associated veggies were a bit less than that. Service was tremendous. We were made to feel welcome and pampered. All told, however, with wine the bill came to over $160 for dinner for 2. For that money I want *everything* to be excellent. This was really good, but not good enough for the money for me. I have to ding them for the Value score.
My fiance and I went here last year for a celebratory dinner and we were quite impressed with the staff AND the food. Our waiters were very attentive and the food was excellent! I had my first gnocchi there and it's still one of the best I've had. There was even a power outage and it did not ruin our experience. The staff kept us notified of what was going on.
We will definitely go back!
Well, it was a Saturday night at about 10pm. My wife and I were in Whistler for the weekend and wanted somewhere nice to eat. Most places in Whistler close early as this wasn't our first choice, but boy were we glad that we ended up here. We have heard of the North Vancouver location, but did not know the Whistler located existed. Its a little pricey, but its authentic Italian, so we were okay with it.
We entered the restaurant and right away somebody told us about a 5-10 min wait and sat us on a side table with a drink/wine menu. That wine Menu was massive. Bigger than any menu I've at a restaurant. It was great as my dad makes his own wine, so I've always been interested in wine growing up (beer person at heart :p) A waiter comes shortly asking us for our drinks, telling us his recommendations. My wife is pregnant and can't drink wine, so we got a bottle of San Pellegrino and a recommended glass of red wine for myself. We were then seated at our table with food menus. The atmosphere is very nice and classy, but not too classy, so you felt comfortable and relaxed.
Our drinks and assortment of breads/butter came with our waitress and was told about the specials and recommendations. My wife is vegan, so she's kinda limited to what she can eat. She decided to start with the CARPACCIO FUNGHI:$13 PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM CARPACCIO, GOAT CHEESE, ARUGULA, PISTACHIO VINAIGRETTE. We took out Goat cheese and she was happy. She then ordered GNOCCHI AL POMODORO:$24 PEMBERTON POTATO GNOCCHI, FRESH TOMATO BASIL as her main. She said it was full of flavour and loved the texture of the pasta.
For myself, I ended up getting a seasonal dinner they had, which was a 4 course meal for $31, I started off with seasoned/baked sliced of bread, topped with some type of spread and what I believe was white asparagus. It was on a plate with lightly dressed arugula. It was refreshing and a great start for what I had in store. The next item I received was a smaller version of the CARPACCIO FUNGHI. For my main, I decided to go with FILETTO AL MARSALA: $38 MESQUITE GRILLED �AAA� BEEF TENDERLOIN, MARSALA ONION SUCCO. Im assuming it was a modified and smaller version because of the $38 price tag and my 4-course was only $31. The meat was very tender and I didn't even need a knife. It was beautifully seasoned and was laid on a bed of mashed potatoes.It also had a nice combination of seasoned grilled vegetables.
For desert, I chose Panna Cotta. It has burnt Caramel on top and served with chocolate/raspberry syrup. It was probably the best I've had ( I don't have it often). My wife ordered an assortment of freshly made Gelato. It was very tasty and creamy. We both decided to order a nice cup of Espresso to go with our deserts. It was very excellent and cut the sweetness perfectly.
Overall, I was impressed with this restaurant as the food was great and our waitress was always there to help us especially my wife. I will go again. Also, take note the of the biggest Pepper grinder You will ever see. That thing was massive. Hope you enjoyed the review.
It was late Friday night and my party of four was starving and ready for some good Italian food. Our target was Quattro Whistler. After spending 10 minutes searching for the restaurant, we finally found it off Main Street. We had no reservation and was seated immediately. We knew the evening was going to be special.
The Quottro martinis were delicious, generous and potent. We ordered the Antipasto appetizer, which was an assorted hot and cold plate, served family style. Every item was absolutely fantastic. My only recommendation is for them to label the delicacies so that we know what we were eating.
One of us enjoyed the Spaghetti Pescatore which was a seafood mouthwatering dish. Another enjoyed the elk chops on the specials menu. He ordered it rare and it was served medium well. The server quickly corrected the oversight and returned a perfectly prepared dish.
Me and the Mrs enjoyed the Five Pasta Combination plate. This plate included fusilli tartufati, fettuccine pomodoro, spaghetti amatriciana, tagiatelle pesto, fettuccine ghiottone.
We will definitively be returning to Quattro in the near future.
We read quite a few reviews when we were deciding on a restaurant to go to for our 15th anniversary and we ended up choosing Quattro. The menu looked so good we had a hard time choosing. I had the duck salad with arugula and blueberries, which was very good, but the beef carpaccio I also ordered was out of this world. My husband had the spaghetti pescatore which was also delicious and loaded with seafood. And the crab and scallop cake we started off with excellent - so moist and flavorful. The best part of dinner, though, was the service. Our server, Michael, was friendly without being insincere and professional. He was at our table even before we knew we needed anything and our drinks were being constantly refilled. Thank you for a perfect dinner.
We had the most spectacular dinner for US Thanksgiving this year in Whistler at Quattro. We were hesitant to go to an Italian restaurant for an Traditional American dinner, but were delighted at the excellence at every turn. The service was fantastic, from the hostess to the server to the wine captain. All were friendly and helpful, not overbearing. They offered a fixed price dinner with turkey, stuffing, etc, which turned out to be beyond outstanding. Every person in our group who ordered it raved. Others in our group ordered off the standard menu, and each dish was superb. The wine recommendation was perfect, and our entire group enjoyed every minute of the meal, savoring every dish. We couldn't give Quattro a higher recommendation!!
I went to quattros for the first time and was very happy with the experience. We ordered a three course meal with an assortment of pasta. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were very large. The food wasn't cherp but for what we ate it was worth the money. Our server was great, always checking to see if we needed anything. The restaurant itself was quite nice, and the patio was great for a quiet evening meal. Making a reservation was also quite easy.The only thing I could say on a less positive side was the restaurant was kind of hard to find. In all I had some great food and I would suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for some delicious Italian food.
Five of us went there for the first time, and I can say that
this place is one of the best Italian restaurants in Whistler.
The staffs were professional yet friendly.
The foods were simply great.
One of my friends actually orderd a second past plate because it was good.
I would comeback to this restaurant if I visit Whistler again.
