Upscale(ish) restaurant in Whistler for Valentines Day

Can anyone recommend a nice restaurant in Whistler to take my GF for Valentine's Day? I'm not too concerned about price. We're both young, so we're looking for something with a trendy atmosphere.

With out a doubt the best place you can take her is The Rim Rock. Everything else is a distant second. In second place and still respectable would be Hys, Quatro or The Grill Room.

The Rim Rock would be more suited for a romantic Valentines dinner, with still having a busy atmosphere. Food is fantastic and you will gain huge points by knowing to order the Sticky Toffee Pudding for desert.

Your only problem is going to be getting a reservation.

Skip the Bearfoot Bistro, or Araxis.

Rim Rock is fantastic! I had the Venison, mushroom salad (its got all sorts of wild mushrooms in it and surprisinly amazing) and the sticky pudding.

Their drink selection is really good too. I had a cocktail and Rumrunner by Vic local cidery Sea Cider and an apricot dessert wine from California which was not too sweet, I think I could have polished off the bottle.

Araxi do a beautiful gnocci, best ive ever had and I hear Trattoria di Umberto is a very good restaurant too but I am yet to try.

I ride: NS Pandora 146 + Salomon Absolute premium Bindings
Stepchild PMS 149 + Nitro Eris Bindings +15 -15
Nike ZF1 5.5 & K2 Contour 5.

Rimrock or Trattoria, both are great. Rimrock probably sets the standard. Bring money however.
