My wife and I both had salmon, and it was cooked very nicely, although the portion was small. The vegetables were also good. Our waitress was wonderful and the overall atmospher was good, but I thought it was a bit pricey.

Feel free to skip this place. The food is over priced, service is non-existent and when the food finally arrives, there is no flavor / taste. After a strong recommendation, we decided to give this place a try last weekend. The place wasn't full so there is really no excuse for the service we received. Yes, views are great from most tables but that's about it. We did not order a starter, and the waitress waited until our meal arrived to bring us water and while she did provide a drinks menu, she never came back to ask if we'd like any. We were looking for salt and pepper (that's how bland our food was), and they never brought us this either. Of note - table did not have S/P. We ordered the chicken and Bison dishes and both were over cooked and bland.

The only part of the service that was quick was the check. She left the Credit card reader at our table and walked away; so did we and hope to never go back there again. This was easily the worst dinner of our 12 night stay in Canmore/Banff.

We had spent the morning hiking and came back parched and hungry. We wanted something a tad quieter than the hustle and bustle of the outdoor seating restaurants. We had great food. My son had a steak and potatoes that he devoured. Hubby had a spicy pasta and sausage and I had an amazing meatloaf. All tasty and delightful. We had amazing service with smiles and speed. All was awesome. We were quite surprised that it was part of a chain as it had the feel of a one-of restaurant. our's was a late-lunch, early dinner. I would recommend it for either option.

We came here for dinner and were seated by the window giving us a beautiful view of the town and the mountains. The service was very good and our server was very polite and helpful, even giving us suggestions for places to visit on our trip.

We ordered the salmon, the chicken and the spaghetti and meatballs. All the food was lovely and fresh as well as being very delicious. The salmon was lovely however the portion of fish was fairly small and the table next to us who also had salmon and they had a significantly larger piece. The pasta was good however was possibly a bit overpriced for what it was. We ordered the chocolate cake and creme brulee for dessert, both were nice but fairly average.

Overall the food was good however it was a little pricey for what it was. Service is good and you get a lovely interior along with a lovely view.

We really enjoyed the food and the non-alcoholic cocktails that we had here with a nice view of the mountains. I had a burger and my husband had the steak and both were very tasty. Our B&B hosts had warned us that they didn't have many servers and we found that we waited a long time to find ours, despite there only being 2 other groups of diners in the restaurant, as she kept disappearing for ages. She was very pleasant whenever she was around though.
