A word from Redwater Rustic Grille - Aspen Estates
Redwater Rustic Grille’s market driven menu is a fresh interpretation of contemporary West Coast Cuisine with signature dishes and innovative creations. A favorite destination for wine-lovers and foodies alike, Redwater’s wine menu features specialties from smaller boutique wineries, many of which are not found elsewhere in the city. The large selection of wine complements the executive chef's menu of seasonal robust dishes. Canadian Coral, soft lighting, the contemporary lounge and the large glass wine cellar enclosing the private dining room; creates an ambiance of casual refinement. Servers are warmly professional and their enthusiasm for great food and wine is infectious. Redwater is a proud recipient of the 2007, 2008 & 2009 Wine Spectator Awards. Dress: Smart Casual. Please note hats are not permitted in the restaurant and we do not have highchairs/booster seats or childrens menus.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The staff seems completely oblivious and untrained; this was not our first bad experience at the Redwater. The view from the patio is lovely, but the overall experience is mediocre."

  • "We had the lobster tacos and they were excellent as was the chicken rotisserie."

  • "We hadn't been to this Redwater since shortly after they first opened. I figured the kinks would be worked out by now. They haven't. The menu is limited. The place was 2/3 empty at lunch on this Thursday but it took an excruciating amount of time to order and get food. My sons burger arrived burned to a crisp. What kind of dopey chef sends that out anyways? The other meals were slightly above average. Spectacular location, underwhelming food and service. What a waste. I will check back in two years to see if it has changed"

  • "It's been a while since we've had dinner at Redwater. After 2visits in 2 weeks, I'll have to shake my head with disappointment with both the service and the the quality of the food. We have always enjoyed this spot and really enjoyed the food and service, but with 2 disappointments in a row, we will hesitate before going back. The poor service was the largest issue. It was 15 min before we got a drink, water glasses were not refilled as needed. The waitress actually came to the table and finally filled 1 glass and promptly walked away with out bothering to top up the rest of the table. The food was ok, but not out and out yummy. We are sad about this, because it used to be great there."

  • "We frequent Redwater Aspen as it is close and generally the food is great, The service and ambiance are usually good and this occasion I hope, was an exception. The salmon eggs benny is what I had. The eggs were rock hard, the salmon was in big chunks, the "potatoes" were short of horrible. Everything was cold and this seemed to be the way our table (of four) spent a sunday brunch. The potatoes seemed to be out of a bag that had been in the freezer for months. DEFINITELY not up to the expected standard. The waitress, although pleasant, was not attentive, nor helpful with the condition of the food. Last time we have brunch at Aspen Redwater"

  • "The daily special was Arctic Char and seasonal vegetables were Asparagus. We ordered appetizers, salmon, an arctic char and I ordered the angus short rib. I was advised they might be out, but she would check. A few minutes later, she came back and told me they were out so I changed to the pork chop. Our appetizers arrived and just after we finished, the manager came by and told us they were now out of the arctic char, so that was changed to a salmon. Quite a while later our food finally showed up. The asparagus was changed to zucchini because they were now out of asparagus. The other diners said the salmon was ok (not great) and my pork chop was burnt on the outside and way overdone. Very disappointing experience"

  • "We had a birhtday dinner here and I ordered a decent bottle of wine. It arrived but it was the wrong year, so I picked another bottle, which they spent 20 mintues looking for and then said they didn't have it. The table down from us had the same problem. The food was ok but given the price point I expect better service and a wine list that shows what's in stock."

  • "It was a delicious meal however delayed to a party that took priority and confused the kitchen on 2 of our 3 meals."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Went to brunch on Father's Day. Overall food was good but for $6.00 extra per side of fruit, I expect something more than just plain melon with half a strawberry added. Also, while you know that things will be slower for a day like Father's Day, 45 minutes is too long to wait for breakfast with children."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had to wait for 2hrs for our food and then the orders were not correct with further delays. The servers were very fake in their apologies and did not care. Like to go there before but this was terrible"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I love loud, raucous restaurants...but I was looking for a place to take my parents where we could talk. And this was it...the booths provide a good, intimate setting but are large enough to accommodate 6 adults. The lobster tacos were good! A good stand-by restaurant when you don't feel like going downtown."

  • "it was a perfect evening with fantastic service, excellent wine list and a really good vibe to the place. the Food was the highlight of the evening"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We like this restaurant's location and excellent brunch. Dinner, however, tends to be inconsistent. We were looking forward to a nice steak, and while my husband had a perfect medium rare tenderloin, mine was overdone and tough. The waitress did not check on us until well into the meal at which point I decided to try to enjoy what I had so we could eat together (the manager kindly offered us an apology and a dessert later, which we declined). This happened to me a couple of years ago as well, and two out of three steaks were so overdone the server brought them back. While there was a long wait for the new steaks, it turned out to be one of the best I've ever had. Such a shame that Redwater can't figure out consistency!"

  • "Service was great. The food was good. My steak was a little rare but tasted really good."

  • "This place is a hidden gem - great ambiance and the view of the mountains to the west is fantastic. All food was tasty and an excellent menu to chose from."

  • "An hour after placing our order and a couple of updates that our food would be out shortly, we were advised that they ran out of halibut. Our guest changed her order to salmon and our food arrived shortly thereafter. The two guests having salmon found their meal cold and extremely undercooked; both had to be sent back. The meals for the other four guests was perfectly cooked. Our server was very professional and our bill was adjusted to make up for the inconvenience. I would go back to Redwater because I know this experience was out or the norm but it might be awhile before I go back with a larger group."

  • "Wonderful décor, food and ambience. Had to wait 20 min even though reservations were made . Had mentioned the special occasion -birthday but they failed to acknowledge it. The Hostess service was much better the first time around when we had dined there. The server was great. Not sure who forgot the birthday dessert!!!!!!communication ? Overall a great place and has potential to continue to be one but will have to watch the decline in the special touch which was noticeable this time. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Appetizers were good - especially the braised squid - unusual preparation and very tasty. Main courses were not quite up to the same par as the appies. Was not impressed with the veal special (garlic overpowered all the other flavours and the veal was sinewy). Tart for dessert was exceptional. Wait staff were friendly and made us feel welcome."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "shrimp &scallops arrived warm not hot. White serviettes made a mess on dark clothing. very skimpy "double" expresso"

  • "Took a bit long for waitress to show up after seating."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Enjoyed good meals in the past. Recent experiences have been up and down. This visit fell completely flat. The items we ordered were disappointing. Two pasta dishes looked insipid on arrival. Agnolotti was underfilled and dry/tough in a teeny bit of broth. The only colour was a couple of green onion sprigs and about 10 green peas. Chicken pappardelle included 1 buried leaf of spinach and we couldn't discern the chicken from the exotic mushroom (both were rubber like). Ahi Tuna contained a large streak of fibrous tissue. The chicken dish was mediocre. Our one regret is not sending the lot back to the kitchen. Spoke with management and was comp'd one meal. However, since 4 of our 5 dishes were subpar, am taking Redwater off my list."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "We wanted a simple night out, but needed it to be special. The server was amazing! I would go back for her. We both had fish and there is no complaints - cooked perfectly, just enough sauce and a little crisp on the outside - AMAZING!. The Mac and cheese was runny, but tasted good. I plan to go back."

  • "Always enjoy visiting this restaurant. The food is incredible and the service is always top notch. I have celiac disease and the servers are always very knowledgeable and the food is delicious."

  • "There was a wide range of choices and the Eggs Benedict, pancakes and exceptional BLT were all delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. Complimentary banana bread, fresh fruit and individual yogurt were appreciated. Would recommend the brunch as well as the enjoyable lunches and dinners we have experienced at Redwater Aspen and Stadium"

  • "We booked a late seating for Mother's Day and still had fantastic service & great food. "
    Dined on 7/28/2013
  • "It was mother's day and I arrived at 1:30PM willing to have lunch. I was sad to see that I could only have Brunch, which means "something with eggs"...Still, the place is charming, the service is good and the food was good...if it was 9 AM..."

  • "Going out for dinner on Mother's Day with my toddler son. The restaurant is fairly new yet they do not have a changing table in the ladies' washroom (even though their handicap stall is large enough to install one). So not impressed. Service is fair. We got a nice table. I got a nice wine to start and that's about it. Food is poor. My husband and mother in law did not enjoy their foods and vowed not to return. "

  • "Table was elegantly set and there was no waiting. The service was friendly, charming, attentive and efficient. The food came in a timely manner and hot, wonderfully presentable and delicious."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We needed to find a location to eat on Mother's Day weekend with short notice and were able to fit in lunch on Saturday at this location. It was a very nice meal and the service was very good. The prices were reasonable for what you received. They have a nice private room available as well which looks like it holds about 20 guests. The music was a bit loud for my preference but you could still talk."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Server was very professional. Checked on us promptly, brought our drinks and then left us alone to chat until we signaled that we were ready to order. Food came a reasonable time after order was taken. Soup was very nice; sandwich was alright, not remarkable in my view. As the purpose of the outing was catching up more than great dining, this suited us just fine."

  • "It was my first time there for Sunday Brunch. I really liked the food there but best of all we had the most amazing service. There was a shortage of high chairs as there is a total of 4 there and 3 were being used by one table. My waitress was able to get me one of the three from that table so that I could eat my lunch! I would definitely go again! "

  • "I was very impressed with gluten-free items on the menu. It is not quite clear what is available but if you ask, you get gluten-free bread to start and with your bruschetta. Unfortunately, the vegetable quinoa only had one vegetable. Food was great and the service was very friendly."

  • "I work downtown and usually go to the Redwater in Bow Valley and absolutely love it so I thought going for dinner at Redwater in Aspen was a good choice. This was unfortunately not true. I would say my experiences at both are completely different and the quality of experience just isn't the same at Aspen."
