The Black Diamond has enviable location with a large dining room & decent sized bar. It just needs more patrons based on my visit. It is not bad but I just found other options after eating here on the 1st night in the resort. Either the staff need to crank it up a level or alternatively maybe just turn the... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant on Valentine's day as we hadn't booked in time to get into the other restaurants we wanted to try, so we thought we would give this place a go. There was only a $69pp 3 course meal available for dinner, due to being Valentine's day, however given the day manager was so... More

Very disappointing when a vegetarian is assured about the contents of a meal and then finds bacon floating in the sauce! No apology offered, no contrition shown, and no amendment to the charges for the meal.

And it doesn't have the feeling of a bar, so kids are definitely welcome. The serving sizes are quite big. Not so great when skiing as... More

Went for dinner on Jan. 27th and was impressed by the location and food. Beautiful set up and our waiter was really friendly and really knew the menu and gave us some really good recommendations. My steak was cooked to perfection and was very tasty.

I had a craving for a burger. Not been a regular client of this place but after dining there I will be going back for sure ! Had the burger, it came with a very nice salad, fresh gourmet salad ingredients, nice dressing. Good fixings on the large portion burger including dill pickles which are a must for me on... More

We popped in for lunch and a beer having the prime rib melt on yorkshire pudding with gravy - YUMMY! The bar is small but cozy and the wait staff service was excellent!
