I went to Araxi a couple months ago and they had a really good deal for their 31 year anniversary. It was $31 for a...5 course meal? or something like that. I am not sure if they still have it but thought the value was good. I don't think the food was amazing though, but for the price of $31 I really couldn't complain.

Oh, they also have a $10 for a dozen oysters special in ther afternoon. Ended up getting 4 dozen for 2 people

So we will be going to Araxi tonight. Will report back later.

Apparently they are the same group as Bluewater Cafe, Cin Cin and West? I walked by and saw the sign.

21 Steps is not bad. The mussels remind me of Biercraft. Nothing fancy but haven't tried their big plates so I can say much. Had a snack there yesterday after Splitz Grill lol.

The wine list is light years better at Bearfoot if you are into higher end wines. If you plan to spend $100 or less on wine then you could argue Araxi has the better list.

I personally like the food better at Barefoot (they have a few different menus, set menus etc), but not by much. As for service, like most Whistler restaurants it can be inconsistent as they have to hire ski bums - however if you get a career server the service can be top notch.

Yea, I love fine dining, but have yet to develop an appreciation for fine wine (or wine in general).
Guess it comes w/ age?

Araxi is not bad. The menu and the food is very similar to Bluewater Cafe in Yaletown.

1/2 dozen Kusshi - shucked very well, every piece looked and tasted good. 9/10
Beef tartare - standard beef tartare. 7/10
Tuna tataki - nicely done, I liked the caviar/fish roe thing with the tuna. 8/10
Halibut - a little dry, but they didn't screw up. 8/10
Mushrooms on the side - nice selection and generous portion. Could have used much less butter. 7/10

Overall, I think Araxi is just another Bluewater Cafe. So the food is quite good. Service was also very good. No comment on wine because we don't drink wine. :P
