Location. Location. Location. It is true what they say… If you find the right place, you can have bad service, mediocre food and still have a license to print money. You can still attract all the tourists (and locals)… Let’s take a patio day up at Whistler. It’s usually one of those days when you arrive late after checking into your hotel, or after a hitting the slopes that you are hit with hunger pains. You must quench your thirst and fill that empty stomach. La Bocca Restaurant, located in a busy intersection in Whistler Village it seemed like the right choice with its flaming red umbrellas, charming patio (good for people watching) and their Mediterranean like setting insides.
La Bocca Restaurant Whistler has slow service. We waited a very long time before we received any water. As we studied the menu and decided on the Bocca’s Signature Burger $15 and a Chicken Sammy $14, we couldn’t help but wonder why everyone was holding their menu and trying to flag down their server. Why wasn’t anyone getting decent service? Despite warning signs we pressed on. We waited. We were hungry.
Bocca’s Signature Burger 15: 100% angus beef patty with strip bacon, sautéed mushrooms, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle and the whole shebang. A very basic burger with not a lot of seasoning.
Understand it is not Araxi Vancouver, but there is no reason for such slow services. Please find yourself a better suited Patio seat as there are lots in Whistler Village.
