Outstanding dining experience
This restaurant at The Banff Centre is one of the best in Banff National Park. The quality of the food and the the presentation is extremely high. The service is very professional. The Executive Chef and his team go out of their way to make this an outstanding experience for the diner, and we did not go away disappointed in any way. As an added bonus, the dining room is all glass, and affords a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountain valley looking west. The perch and trout entree was perfectly cooked with a mild sauce. The Alberta lamb rack was tender and juicy, with an array of garden vegetables colourfully accenting the plate.

Top notch dining!
From the moment we walked in, I just knew we were in for a treat. The view is simply magnificent! We dined on a Monday night, so there were not many other tables seated. It felt like we had the entire place to ourselves.
From the cocktail list to the dessert menu, decisions were very difficult to make. I wanted to order a sampling of everything! The wine list had a very substantial selection.
Even the little warm nuggets of bread were delightful, complete with a small plate of four different types of butter. The sun-dried tomato butter was our favorite, followed by the sea salted butter.
The service was impeccable. I would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone visiting Banff.

Best view and best food
I visited the restaurant with two people who are both "foodies" and excellent cooks. When we received our main course, we didn't even talk to each other because we were just enjoying each perfect bite. The view is simply spectacular with a panoramic view of the mountains with floor to ceiling windows. The service was lovely and professional. With mountain views, exquisite food and elegant ambiance, it is by far my favorite restaurant.

We really enjoyed the whole experience. Servers were very good/attentive. Food was excellent. The view is unsurpassed.
The price is higher ... befitting the quality.

Incredible View & Great Food
A wine list that is affordable, and food that will knock your socks off. This restaurant is well worth the short trip from the town site. It's actually a very walk-able distance from down town if you don't mind climbing a hill. The food is top notch, and the service is great. The restaurant is on Tunnel mountain and is raised above the other buildings around it, making for what is arguably the best view in Banff. Perfect for a romantic dinner overlooking the Bow Valley and the townsite. This place is a must see for foodies, and those looking for something special.

Best view in Banff
Spectacular view! Very good food. Price is reasonable for those attending a Center event (20%) dicount.

The entire evening was an outstanding dining experience. All the staff were respectful and well attending, the food was (have never said this) perfect! Just the right amount of sauces & garnish, good portions and beautiful presentation. We were an early reservation before the Jazz concert, so we got the amazing corner table with the most stunning view - really felt like we were the only ones there.
Shout out to 3 Ravens :)

Awesome food with a killer view
This restaurant rocks! With an awesome view of the Bow Valley and its exquisite menu, you can't go wrong.
We started with the crab appetizer soaked in watermelon juice, what a nice treat!
We then had the cauliflower cream soup, great to have the taste buds working to what came to be a party our mouths with the bison and duck entrees.
The four kinds of butter to spread in your whole wheat buns where delicious as well.
The service was great but could have been a bit more efficient given that there were only 4 parties of two but there was a massive party of 20 who took most of the restaurant space and time away from the servers from our table. However, in all, very good and will come back!

Unexpected find in the bow valley
Many places claim to be great and when you get there they are disappointing and expensive. This restaurant didn't boast, but should. The food was universally excellent and great value. The meal was cooked to perfection. My husband's salad was fresh and tasty with delicious Caesar dressing. They were flexible with my dessert and brought me just the items I wanted. We had a wonderful meal and then off to the theatre just a short walk away - perfect evening at the Banff Centre.

Elegance with a view
Our first visit to Three Ravens was a special evening. We were given, what I think is, the premier table - in the front corner with glass walls. The view was glorious. My husband enjoyed a delicious beef dinner and I found my fish dish perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant was difficult to find since it was not clear from just the address that it is located inside the Banff Centre complex, on the top floor of the Sally Borden building. We drove around the area for a while trying to find the restaurant. Our first impression was that we had spent all that time trying to find a restaurant that at first glance, reminded us of a school cafeteria. There was a beautiful scenic view but the space was huge and lacked a cozy ambience. The food, however, was outstanding and we had great service. It was definitely worth finding!

Great bite before the concert
Three Ravens is a bright open space with panoramic views of the rockies. The views are enough to recommend this fine dining spot but the food is exceptional also. My wife and i both had the rack of lamb which was perfectly prepared.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find - we will be back.
We found Three Ravens visa an article on restaurants with great wine options in Wine Spectator. The restaurant is in the Banff Centre and when we arrived it was very quiet and seemed that a Faculty banquet had just left. However we were sat at a corner table in a glassed off area with the most amazing 180 degree view of the mountains. I had the scallops which were delicate and delicious, followed by the chicken roulade which was very appealingly presented, light and very flavoursome. The desert tasting options enabled us to try the chocolate mousse and the banana creme brulee both of which were so much better than standard. The service throughout was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. Definitely recommend.

Food was great as usual and
Food was great as usual and my celiac daughter was well looked after even to a plate of gluten free toast to replace the rolls!

What a view!
My guest and I dined here before an event that was being held at the Banff Centre which made for a perfect transition. The lamb and trout were fantastic as were the compound butters bread service. Service was friendly and appropriately attentive.
I would definitly recommend!

Great food, great atmosphere all fresh, excellent ingredients. Veggie choices.
Expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

Best in Banff
Not only was dinner at the Three Ravens the best that we had in Banff, but also it was one of the best we've had in a restaurant. The scallops were delicious. The duck breast was perfectly prepared. Our server was attentive and professional, and the view . . . !!!!!!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best dining experience I've had in a very long time. The scenic view, the service, the amazing food, all made the experience amazing.

Incomparable view - fantastic food
The best dining experience we've had in Banff. Great to bring out-of-province visitors and thoroughly enchant these foodie friends. Food was interesting, lots of unique choices, and perfectly prepared. THE VIEW! Amazing panoramic view of the valley - watched a thunderstorm roll in, crackle and snap, and then clear up for a stunning evening sunset. Wow. Thanks for an exceptional evening.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and a view right in the Rockies - fantastic. Restaurant is pretty huge but at the window you won't look for interior. Creative cuisine provided us a great dinner. Good wine list
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful views, good food
Three Ravens sits atop an impressive building at the Banff Centre, located midway on Tunnel Mountain in Banff. From here, you can see some pretty amazing views of the sun setting behind the mountains during dinner, something that a born and raised local such as myself hasn't had the opportunity to see lately.
The food was great - perfect portions, thoughtfully seasoned and creatively balanced. Wine list is modest, featuring a couple of steals in Banff and simple enough to navigate.
Went during a weeknight, and maybe of the interior tables were not even set - so felt a little like a cafeteria, but the views from the large ceiling-high windows were breathtaking enough to distract you.
Definitely worth a try.

Great Rocky Mountain Experience
This was our second visit and the food was as good as 3 years ago. There was a large tour group also on hand this time so that service was slower. Steak and trout outstanding!

Fine, Fine Dining
We dined on the final Saturday of the Banff International String Quartet Competition. We were late for our reservation and it would
have been better if we had gotten there at 5 pm, but we had to freshen up at our hotel, the Delta Banff. My husband loved his
wine, my salad was delicious, our dinners were marvelous--duck breast, sable fish. The view of the mountains was fantastic until
the sun was too blinding and warm in the glass structure and the blinds had to be lowered.
I did not realize that the restaurant was connected to the cafeteria section.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was perfect. Food and service was exceptional and the view was amazing.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed 3 Ravens! The food was excellent and the service was great and very attentive and the scenic view was spectacular! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food with an amazing view. Service was a little slow, but it allowed more time to sit and enjoy the Bow and Spray Valley views.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Well worth it!
Three Ravens, hands down, has the best view of any restaurant in Banff. At the top floor of the Sally Borden Building in the Banff Centre, there is a totally unobstructed, floor to ceiling window view of the rockies. The restaurant and wine bar are located in the "food centre", so upon entering it does have an institutional feel but that quickly dissapears once you're seated. The wine list is simple, but adequate. The food, however, is outstanding. We had scallops and split pea/ham hock soup, Bison two ways and Tenderloin, all of which was masterfully prepared. Dessert left a little to be desired, when compared to the meal but was adequate. The service was outstanding.

Upscale dining with superb view
You won't find many better dining views in the Rockies or anywhere else in Alberta for that matter. This is expensive dining but the food is certainly worth the price. For us "mature" diners, the quietness of the venue enhanced the panoramic views. Service was tasteful and not intrusive. The menu changes regularly and everything we have tried has been superb. If you happen to be going to a concert that same day, there is a 20% discount which makes a big difference. We frequently stay at the Banff Centre and the convenience is welcome.

Great go to place for my wife and I
Whenever we are staying in Banff we always dine here at least once.
Great food attentive servers spectacular views. Great wine selection.
You can always count on Three Ravens
