We booked an early dinner at Habitat as it was one of the few places open on Christmas day. The restaurant is very nicely decorated but is an odd long, thin room so at one end you're sitting next to the serving hatch and at the other you're by the entrance to the buffet so people are constantly walking past...

Our waitress was great, polite, and sympathetic... It took 2hrs and 45 mins to get thru our meal. Having worked in restaurants for over a decade, this tops the cake... We waited well over an 125 minutes between courses with absolutely no concern from the back of the house. The poor table beside us, on their birthday ( had time... More

We had a lovely evening at Habitat using our Groupon for the 5 course meal with wine pairing. Harshad, our server, was a delightful young man - professional. We were told we would not leave hungry and we weren't dissappointed. Everything tasted wonderful - the squash soup was to die for, really! Don't be in a hurry when you come,... More

The service is great and the food does not disappoint. This is a fine dining establishment so not a fast in and out meal. Relax and enjoy the beautiful mountains through the gorgeous oversized windows. The menu changes but these are some of my favourites. For appetizers we have tried the meatballs, grilled caesar salad, and several of their soups... More

We bought the Groupon for a 5 course dinner with wine pairings and what a treat that was! First of all, the restaurant has lovely ambience and we were seated in a large booth. It was clean and the washrooms were also very well done and clean. The staff were wonderful and the service was very good. Our first course... More

We chose Habitat for our special dining experience based on the recent reviews. We both felt that the restaurant did not measure up to the hype. Parking was difficult to find and a chilly, long walk away. This restaurant is crammed into a little corner of a hotel with no available parking for non-hotel patrons. The food actually tasted good... More

We purchased a groupon for this restaurant. Great date night. We had the 5 course meal. Amazing and very interesting flavours. Service was great. Music was too loud and definitely didn't match the feel of the restaurant. Unsure if I would return without a deal as the prices were a little too steep for my budget but glad to have... More

First off, this restaurant is gorgeous! You will be impressed when you walk in. Going there with two 8 month old babies was a little intimidating as it appears very upscale, however our waitress and the manager were so friendly and helpful while we were there. They kept asking if the girls needed anything and made us feel very welcome... More

We actually got a 4 course groupon for the restaurant for $75 and wow it was a good dinner. The place is really nice inside, very modern, friendly service, clean and easy going. The food was incredible, every course. Not a cheap place but worth it.

For my wife's birthday we bought a Groupon for the pairing meal at the Habitat. I can not express enough about how wonderful this evening was. We all split the pairings and each course was super!

Jerk chicken and jerk pork are the house specialities but the menu has great share plates such as charcuterie and cheese platters but also an array of appetizers and entrees with an island feel.
Drink menu compliments the menu with tropical flavours and Jamaican beers.
