Beautifully hidden away gem
Our waitress was helpful and friendly. The date nite special that included a bottle of wine per couple was a great deal! We all had the tempura shrimp that came with 3 little sushi rolls for appies. They were a nice light start to a good meal. I had the rib steak that cost an extra 14dollars and it was quite good. The salmon was very nice, the chicken was tender and tasty, and the mushroom ravioli was amazing. The best thing about the meal was the desert. I had the stuffed apple that was amazing , the frozen creme brûlée was awesome and the baked Brie was very good.

Fantastic food. We went for the steak and were not disappointed but the duck duo appetizer will have me coming back for more. Amazing food and ambiance.

Friendly greeting and service, good wine selection and recommendations, excellent food (our meals and sides were perfect). One of the most enjoyable venues in the Bow Valley. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Wonderful anniversary dinner.
Wonderful anniversary dinner. Most notable was that my Rib Steak was cooked perfectly and I would highly recommend the cheese and chocolate dessert. From the wine list the Freemark Abbey is worth the price and the the service was spot on.

The food was a bit over flavored
The food was a bit over flavored (a bit too sweet or salty) but overall quite satisfying. Portions were surprisingly large. The service was pleasant and timely. The ambiance was a bit off for us. While there is no dress code it would have been nice to know that jeans and t-shirts would be out of place. The view definitely was spectacular.

Quite possible the best steak I've ever had! Everything was fantastic from the starter to desert... ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!

Decided to go out for a romantic
Decided to go out for a romantic dinner and we were very pleased with our experience. The food was delicious, the duck duo and the mushroom ravioli were by far the favorite parts of the meal. Service was good and server was knowledgeable and friendly. Fair price considering a 3 course meal and the type of restaurant. Would definitely go back.

Outstanding as usual
This, my third review, will read as those before.
There is no better restaurant in Canmore (or Banff for that matter).
For a special occasion, this is the place. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent.

Excellent food and location
The food and location on the patio with the view where excellent. One of the best steaks I have ever had.

Rustica was a perfect choice for a Mother's Day dinner. I initially wavered between the 10oz NY and the 10oz Filet. Luckily, my waiter advised selection of the filet. It was amazing - it redefined my expectations of what the best steak tastes like. My raised-in-the-flatlands mother loved the view, the decor, and the wildlife. In the weeks since dining at Rustica she has told countless friends and relatives of 'the best steak ever with an amazing view'.

Excellent Food and Service
Rustica Steakhouse provided a very good dining experience. The food was well prepared and very flavourful and the proportions just right. The dining room had fewer patrons than we had hoped however, this was to be expected as it is associated with a golf course which had not yet opened.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We will be back next time in Banff!
The beef is the best you will ever find. It will be worth the trip back just for relive this dining experience.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Steak and View
Been to Rustica 3 years in a row now and each time is not a disappointment. The steak can always be cut with a butter knife and is devine. Love the view of the golf course and the aminals. The staff is wonderful and will help with anything they can. The first year my Mom and I went she actually asked if she could wrap the chef up to take him home. Would love to dine like that on a regular basis unfortunately the wallet won't allow it. Great place to go for a speacial occasion!

Great steaks - lovely view.
A lovely experience overall. Steaks were cooked to perfection -- loved the bleu cheese crust and wine sauce. Side dishes are not included in the price, but are large enough for 2 to share. We were there on the holiday Monday night - very quiet - only 2 other tables inside. A few outside that had finiched their round of golf. Nice view from where we sitted - looking up the hills into the mountain scene. Pleasant service - not rushed. Excellent special night out or when you just want a great steak and wine. Dinner for two (steaks and sides) with bottle of Malbec, dessert and tip approx. $180

My husband and I recently ate at Rustica to celebrate his 30th birthday. It was such a romantic atmosphere, we sat at a table by the window which gave us an amazing view of the mountains and golf course. It was like we were the only two people in the restaurant even though all the other tables were occupied. The service was amazing, the food was to die for. My husband had steak, while I had the ribs and both were equally delicious. We will return in the future, when we want a relaxing, stress free, dining experience.

One of our favourites
We have been driving to this restaurant from Calgary for a special occasion in July for the past three years. We have always had excellent food and service here and would recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I rented a limo for our 25th anniversary to drive us to the Rustica Steakhouse. The restaurant staff was very tentative, offering to take our picture with the gorgeous views -- inside and out. The server was always available making sure we had what we needed, and food was superb. A bit expensive --- but certainly worth every penny.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating our anniversary and out of town on vacation. I used Open Table as a guide and came across the Rustica steakhouse. Wasn't sure what to expect since it was located on a golf course, but the food was outstanding. The steaks melted in our mouths and the service was excellent.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I shared a filet mignon, double-baked potato, and silvertip salad, all of which were very nice. The restaurant specializes in steak and ours was cooked to order. We especially liked the salad. The potato was ok. Wines very very nice. Overall, the food was fine, just not quite as great as we expected.
We sat at a great picture window in front of the golf course and a mountain peak, which was neat to look at. Our server was very attentive.
This was the fifth restaurant we have eaten at in Canmore during this stay. Many have great menus and we have generally been a bit disappointed in the flavor and prices compared with our experiences in the US. Rustica is one of the better places we ate at, though definitely expensive.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!
We had another excellent dinner at Rustica. We plan to return in the near future.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose Rustica as our 5th Wedding Anniversary spot to dine. The restaurant was a small intimate setting, very relaxing and romantic...our table had a great view of the golf course. The service was great, the food was amazing...the best steak I have every had...
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, we often go,excellent!!!
Menu, service, food, quiet background music and general ambiance is great.

Amazing Food in an Amaing Setting
We have been here twice on two different trips to Canmore and both times service and food were exceptional. The view from this restaurant is beautiful and the whole ambience of this restaurant makes it very special. We arrived shortly after the restaurant opened and were served very efficiently with perfect timing between courses. Had our eleven year old son with us and he loved it too!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect dining experience!
I would highly recommend this gorgeous, rustic, fine dining restaurant to people who want to experience a meal like no other. I have never had a better steak anywhere else. Rustica specializes in their beef so please be sure to try something of beef. They have an outstanding wine menu. The cost of dining here is high. Approximately $50-$75 per person for entrée, wine and dessert.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent all around!
A fantastic evening in the mountains over looking the 18th green of Silvertip. The food and service was top notch. One of the top restaurants in the valley for sure!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is on a beautiful mountain side golf course. Great food.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Golf & Great Food Go Together
After 18 holes of golf at one of the most scenic courses you will ever play, you can reward yourself by dining at the club house.
The view is spectacular and the food is exceptional. What a great way to spend a day and evening!!!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was extemely well presented and the flavours were awesome. Dissappointing that there was only one server on, he did his best and overall the service was fine but it is noticable that service is slipping at Rustica probably from having trouble finding qualified staff. He simply had too many tables for one person and the the patrons are not getting the attention they deserve. We did not see a manager throughout the night so I assume there was not one working. I will come back because the food was terrific and in hopes they are able to raise their serivce levels to days of past.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been here a few times, and we've always had our expectations exceeded. This time was no exception. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and professional.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience
Delicious steaks. Great friendly service. Outstanding wine list.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great recommendation
We had a few people tell us this would be a terrific place to enjoy a meal, and it didn't disappoint! We were the only ones there for the first 1/2 hour or so of our dining experience, and were seated to a window with a terrific view of the golf course/mountains. The server was very good and knowledgeable. The food was absolutely amazing, rating right up there with the best steak I've ever enjoyed.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had our first anniversary dinner at silvertip, it was amazing. The service was beyond awesome and the food was amazing. Thank you for a great night...
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steak I think I've ever
Best steak I think I've ever had. Can't complain about the scenery either. Would love to come back here in the summer to have more daylight to enjoy the mountains while having dinner. The crackling of the fireplace along with the setting was very romantic.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful experience - again!
My wife and I had been before, but got the chance to share the experience with our children this time - one adult and one 17. The food was every bit as amazing as we remembered it, and they were very good about helping with the gluten and dairy free needs of one member of the party. We all thoroughly enjoyed everything, from the food, to the atmosphere, the service, and the elk walking by on the golf course. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially when you can get in on the "date night" menu.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and evening.We were a group of four,two elderly people,and were unfortunately seated at a table in front of the door to the private dining room.The group there were enjoying their evening but the noise level was quite loud.
There was a wedding upstairs so a constant flurry of activity involved in serving that group.
Our waitress was great but we came to realize we may very well have not finished our white wine as the wine bucket had been placed behind us near the wall and not near the table or on it as was the bottle of red.
This being said,we have enjoyed the dining room before and will return but make a very concerted effort to ensure our table is suitable.

Date Night Review
The "Date Night" 3 course dinner for two with a bottle of wine for $99 is the best deal ever! We were not rushed, enjoyed the ambiance of the fireplace and the entire room and the service good.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Wonderful Restaurant
This was our second visit to the Rustica Steakhouse at the Silvertip Resort in Canmore and, once again, we enjoyed a fabulous meal! The last time we visited there was exactly 2yrs ago (I live on Vancouver Island) so there's always that trepidation that one has upon revisiting what had been a great first experience and hoping that ti would not disappoint. The restaurant once again met and even exceeded our expectations. The restaurant was featuring a 'Date Night' special which was a 3-course meal for 2 plus a bottle of wine for $99. This is an excellent deal and you can 'upgrade' your portion sizes if so desired. Kudos to the Rustica for offering this choice and I trust many others find this as popular as our small group of 4 did. Excellent!

Steak Like Buttah
The 5 oz petit filet was the best steak I've ever eaten. No word of a lie.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great romantic date night menu
We took the $99 menu option that included a 3 course meal for 2 people and choice of bottle of wine. The food was amazing and the wine was fantastic. The service was wonderful and the romantic ambience was just wonderful. We absolutely loved everything about our experience and the price was a very fair value. We were very happy and impressed
