Whitebark Ratings and Reviews
This is a great restaurant set up and the servers were wonderful (dawn especially). The duck was disappointing. The shishito peppers with goat cheese were very good. In the future I'm just gonna stick to coming here and having a beer. The happy hour drinks are a good deal but the food is not.
worst service ever- they did comp drinks but it took 15 minutes for a server to even appear
Staff walked back and forth carrying nothing . Food was ok . they said not to order sushi because it would take forever.. the cooked food took ages. Manager was nice but too little to late
This restaurant is inside the Westin. I don't expect much from hotel restaurants, and this was at the expected level. My husband and I went in for their sushi special which they have every Monday. We got miso soup, some salmon sushi and a Minaret roll. They were all good enough but nothing special. The sushi were smaller than we're used to, and the roll was dryer. I'm used to rolls having so much sauce that I don't need to dip them into soy sauce, but this one needed to be dipped. For dessert, we had the creme brulee, which looked very good and had a nice top layer of the torched sugar, but the main custard part had the wrong texture, more like a flan I think.
BTW, when we arrived, the hostess didn't ask us if we were there for the special and sat us at a table. We had to ask our waiter for sushi menus, and he grabbed them from the sushi bar which we were right next to, removing the sushi special inserts. I asked about the special, and we had to be moved to a different table to get the special. I don't really understand what was up with all that.
It's very possible their non-Japanese dishes are much better, but I doubt I'll be coming back since there are so many great restaurants in the area.
NOT IMPRESSED! We went for our 18th Anniversary and shared we were there for a special occassion - the hostess nor the server did NOT really cared much! Our server was slow (had to ask someone to call her over twice as she never came by to check on us) - we had dirty dishes were left on the table the entire meal and each time she came by did not bother to clear any. And there were only 4 tables in the entire restaurant .... so there was no excuse for not having better service. The food was average and should have been stellar for the price! Disappointed.
Menu has fewer choices than before and, unfortunately, no Asian-inspired selections. The waitress was useless: delivered a bottle of water and disappeared, even though there were few diners in the room. Has to flag down another waiter to get a wine list. She cleared the knives with the appetizer dishes and did not replace them for the main course; again another waiter had to solve the problem. She was uninterested in the fact the white wine was not chilled enough to last until the food arrived.
This review is for when we were there April 15 at night. We went there somewhat spontaneously as a party of 11 and the food was wonderful. Service was fine.
We had a reservation just for our family of 4 for the next morning at 11 am, and it seemed redundant to come back within 14 hours, so early the next morning I tried to cancel through the Open Table app, but it would not let me. I then called the restaurant several times to cancel, and they never answered the phone. I finally left a message asking to cancel, and asking for a return call, and they did not. This is a hotel restaurant that was open and serving breakfast when I called. I had tried calling the restaurant several times prior to that to see if Easter Sunday had a particular brunch, or just their regular lunch menu, and never reached anyone and never got a call back. So, I would have to say that their phone/communication customer skills are lacking.
The menu listed on Open Table is not current so we were disappointed in the current changes made to the menu. You can't order sushi during "peak" hours unless seated at the sushi bar. This is very odd. The Caesar salad was unexceptional and the croutons appeared to come from a bag. Not worth $12. The steaks however, were cooked perfectly and were very good.
One of our party ordered soup as an appetizer and a salad as dinner - salad arrived before appetizers were finished. Another ordered a steak medium rare - it arrived rare, when we pointed it out the server argued it WAS medium rare - had to be convinced to return and cook longer.
At initial order we ordered a side dish - long after the dinners arrived, no side dish. When we pointed it out the server blamed the kitchen, but when we paid the check the side dish had clearly been added d after all the other items.
Food wwas very good, but the service was terrible.
Whitebark had excellent food and ambiance. It stands out from the other restaraunts in Mammoth because of the quiet atmosphere and very helpful servers who had excellent drink and entree recommendations. Even though this place is a little more expensive, I would definitely come back again.
We typically avoid hotel restaurants as they have generally boring menu options and the service is mediocre, but thought this was in the Village in Mammoth and should be different. We were wrong. We waited 15 minutes for a server to stop by after being seated although there were several people, included our eventual server milling about around us. And then, no apologies for the lack of attention. My wife had the pork loin and I had the chicken. Both were good, but not memorable. There are quite a few other options in the area. Next time we'll avoid this one.
Had a delicious and festive family dinner here--best meal I've had in Mammoth in years. The tenderloin was fabulous, as was the duck, and the mac-and-cheese did not disappoint. We look forward to returning next time we're in town. A little more expensive than most restaurants in town, but very much worth it.
Don't take the kids!!!! The kids menu was unique, but not good. The quesadilla was deep fried and full of grease. The chicken soup was spicy, full of herbs, and super salty. Not a kid's soup. We had gone in expecting to order sushi cut rolls for the kids, but the kitchen and waitress would not serve sushi cut roles in the dinning room. The waitress said the only way you could order a cut roll is to get if for the kids and make it an avocado roll - no sushi. It was rude and they definitely did not have the customer in mind. Meanwhile the sushi bar was half empty on a Saturday night at 6pm and they were serving cut rolls in the bar area. My pasta was good, not made how it was described on the menu and loaded with salt. We won't be going back here unless they change their customer service and chef!!!
Bar, dining, and sushi seem to operate as 3 separate venues with not much coordination. For example, the night I visited cut sushi could be ordered only if seated at the sushi bar. After reserving and sitting in the dining room I was informed that the ceviche on the menu is available only at the main bar. So, we apologized to our server and moved to the main bar for dinner. However after the move and attempt to order we were informed they were out of ceviche! Horrid communication and coordination, and unapologetically I might add. Just very little regard for customer service / satisfaction right down to having to seek someone out to get our car out of valet to leave. It's almost as if the entire operation is new to the staff. Not only would I hesitate to dine here again, it would very much make me question staying at the Westin.
One word: overpriced
I had the cheapest entree on the menu since I was in the mood for pasta. For $22, I was expecting more in terms of flavor, and how they complement each other. Unfortunately, the pappardelle was the only thing I could taste - the other ingredients couldn't stand up to the broad pasta. My wife had the duck, which was too dry. For both entrees, I just tasted the ingredients lumped together. I would have expected this at a restaurant at half the price point.
Final point, if you're staying in the Village and plan to walk there for the first time, there are many steps (I'm guessing sixty-something), and they could get icy. If you haven't acclimated to the high altitude, it could be a tiring climb.
We had my wife's birthday dinner at whitebark. The location was fantastic inside the restaurant but they placed us directly in front of a fireplace. We asked they lower the flames as half the table was burning up. They didn't have the proper amount of seats at the table and my buddies wife had to stand for 5 minutes until they brought a chair over. I purchased two bottles of sake in advance about $75 per bottle. The waitress poured half the wine glass for half the table? The amount was crazy. Never asked if anyone wanted it. We then asked for a shot glasses and transferred the half filled wine glass. The food was below average. Three of us ordered filet. My buddies across from me was twice the size as everyone else's. Explains why he and his wife asked it to be fired up again. My other friends wife ordered the omakase and returned it bc there was a hair on the sushi. The sushi around the table was very thick cuts and everyone took notice. The calamari was very greasy. My steak was bland and a big goop of butter laid on top of it when it was served to me. They did follow through on a cake I had them Arrange for my wife's birthday. Overall was not good at all!
We had a family dinner for three people. The spacious booth was comfortable and quiet. It was nice not to be eating elbow to elbow with strangers at tiny tables. The food was expensive by our standards, but delicious. I was disappointed when I saw the menu, as it looked too limited. Choice of salmon, steak, duck, pork or pasta. However each person was thrilled with how tender their meat was, how good the sauce, and the excellent veg & starch sides. One person thought their filet mignon was the best he ever had. Portions were generous. We split the large serving of pineapple-bread pudding three ways. There were different choices on the bar menu that looked good, and of course the sushi, so we will be back.
