Based on the restaurants that I enjoyed in Yellowknife, I would consider Thornton's to be more upscale that most of the others I visited. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it had that feeling inside with the low lights and decor. I ordered the blackened whitefish with garlic mashed potatoes and fennel salad....it was all very delicious and well seasoned. The wine selection was great. Service was outstanding. The only downfall was dessert...I ordered a pavlova and it was hard as a rock and lacked flavour....the fresh fruit on top was nice but the pavlova itself was horrible I'm sorry to say so it was a big letdown after an amazing meal. Nice touch to be given a wrapped chocolate mint to end the experience though. I would go back...but just order a different dessert.
