Whitebark Ratings and Reviews
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.
The Muscovy duck was a little dry. Otherwise the food was good, as was the service. The variety of menu items was very good in the lounge, as you got the bar and restaurant menus. In the restaurant, you only get the restaurant menu. There's also a kids menu.
Overall, one of the best dining experiences in Mammoth. Salmon was perfectly cooked, hand tools were fresh and delicious, pasta dish was tasty, although a bit too creamy.
Server was relaxed yet efficient, a ambiance was pleasant for a hotel restaurant.
All in all a very fun dinner.
My husband and I ate here for the first time and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere, food, and service was great. Mike was our waiter and he is the best. He was attentive and gave us his opinion of different food items, and was a great waiter. The food was amazing! This restaurant is one that we will definitely visit whenever in Mammoth.
Whitebark offered so many tempting appetizers and sides we had a hard time choosing, and the entrees included something for everyone from the chicken-eaters to the more adventurous palates in our party. Lovely, refined experience after a fabulous day on the slopes!
We were seated promptly by the hostess. This was appreciated because there are many restaurants that will keep you waiting despite a reservation. Our waitress was friendly and welcoming and provided excellent service. The appetizer, entrees, and dessert were all quite good. We appreciate this ability for consistently good food.
Food & servers are great considering the average food in town.
Sushi was Americanized and decent if you're looking for a menu in Mammoth with variety (other than typical burgers & pizza). If you want more traditional sushi, this is not the place.
However, we had quite a lengthy wait (sat 1 hour after our reservation time) on the holiday weekend and the hostess continued to make excuses to stall us instead of telling us the truth about our delay. Although the manager rectified the situation, she wasn't apologetic in the least.
Overall, the food ended up being worth the wait.
White Bark was perfectly fine...not terrible, not great. Good food in Mammoth is limited, so given the choices, this one is definitely on the higher end. Appetizers were better than the entrees. Nice view of snow covered trees with lights, and good bar scene.
Great wine list, and the menu had a little something for everyone.
The kids menu is printed in SUPER TINY font and made it almost impossible to read. It was also very faded.
It was a busy night and service was consistent. Food came out quickly and was not very hot. It was acceptable, but my boyfriends potatoes were on the verge of being cold.
We'll come back, as we'd like to try the sushi bar.
A warm refuge on a bitingly cold Christmas night. Excellent wine and appetizer. The presentation of the entrees was excellent. My wide's salmon was perfect, but the vegetable one of the accompanying veggies (brocollini?) was almost ice cold. My son's pork tenderloin was very good. I had the prime rib, which was very tasty but not very warm, as were the potatoes.
While it took quite some time to get dessert, the cookie sandwich was exceptional and worth the wait.
I'd go back again but probably just sit in the bar and order from that menu.
Waiter was very inexperienced, but nice enough. Second glass of wine was corked--very obvious, should have never been served. Pasta dish with mushrooms was incredible(but rich!), filet mignon was way undercooked and not very flavorful, scallop special was good , not great. Overall good, not great and way too expensive for the quality of the food and the overall experience.
We had a delightful time. It was Sunday night, post-Thanksgiving, so a blissfully quiet evening in the restaurant! Food, service, ambiance, view of snowy surroundings just right. The Pappardelle w/duck confit was out of this world. The best we've ever had and not to be missed. Excellent service, good wine list, aesthetically pleasing and innovative decor. Can't wait to return!
This is an interesting hotel dining experience. There is a sushi bar (empty on our visit, but table service includes a somewhat varied menu. The salads were huge but not quite as advertised on the menu. Both were good but not as we had expected. Our entrees - salmon and duck were well done and nicely presented, but were not seasoned as much as we would have liked. Adding salt and pepper helped, but more attention in the kitchen would have made for a better dining experience. The sorbets were good and the cheesecake outstanding. Our server was excellent. She found the last bottle of the wine that we had ordered. Very friendly,but professional. This is very good place,especially when you want a quiet dinner with good food and don't want to leave the hotel. Especially inviting in winter.
Crab cakes were served cold and had not been cooked. Vegetables on the chicken dish were cold and chicken was luke warm.
Waiter, Mike, was very good but could not make up for the lousy food.
We had been here many times before and were embarrassed in front of our guests after raving about the restaurant. It will be awhile before we try it again, if ever.
The ambience is quite wonderful and the menu provides delicious options for vegetarians. There is a comfortable modern design that was a nice change from all the log cabins. Delicious food, but my steak was not quite on the mark as requested. All in all, I recommend White Bark for a good meal in Mammoth Lakes. 👍🏻
We were staying at the Westin and made reservations for dinner on the 4th of July. My prime rib was delicious and the vegetables and horseradish sauce were very good. My husband ordered the macaroni and cheese. It would have been perfect for a child but was much too bland for an adult! His salmon was beautifully prepared but the couscous was flavorless and the shaved vegetables added to the presentation but not to the taste.
The wine list and the service were good.
