Diner Reviews
  • "We found Three Ravens on Open Table & thought it sounded good. It was-the food was wonderful & the view of the mountains around Banff at sunset couldn't be beat. We didn't expect to access the restaurant by walking through a dorm, or look down the skylight & see the recreation center, or have the cafeteria to a conference center on the other side of the wall. It didn't detract but be forewarned! Weirdest of all: my husband ordered Seared Steelhead Trout Filet with ancient grain pilaf, & loved it...but if it was trout we'll both eat our hats. It looked, smelled & tasted like salmon. When asked, the waitress said "trout looks like salmon." Really? We thought the chef made a substitution. My sablefish (a new fish to me) was spectacular."

  • "A great experience. Our server, Rob, was great - knowledgeable and friendly. Food was fantastic both in taste, presentation, and quantity of servings. Very reasonable cost for a top-notch fine dining experience. Look forward to going back."

  • "Had Dinner with my husband which was amazing. I had the duck and my husband had the bison tenderloin, both were perfectly prepared. Yum! The view is amazing! The night we were there was really quiet as there was only one other table there. But I'm sure that if there's an event at the Banff Centre it would be really busy."

  • "Away from the rush and massive number of people on Banff Avenue this restaurant is wonderful! Incredible scenery, great service, smaller room and quiet. Definitely a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion as a couple or group of family and friends. Complete the evening with an event at the Banff Center! Perfect!"

  • "We had an incredible meal and wonderful service at Three Ravens. The view was also pretty amazing. Next time we're in banff we'll be heading here again. Really amazing meal!"

  • "Although usually a bit quiet, this place has an incredible view, amazing wine, outstanding, delicious beautiful food!! Even for a special occasion, a bottle of wine, appetizers, dinner and dessert usually hits around $200, which is great value, considering all you get! One of my favourites, even though its few and far between!"

  • "Right from our arrival at the front door we were treated royally. The service, food, ambiance, and of course rhe mountain views were all we could hope for. Spectacular surroundings, delicious food, great wine choices and pairings along with a staff that couldn't do enough to make our evening perfect, that, and a lovely well appointed room at the Professional Development Banff Centre along with a great Holly Cole concert made for a perfect weekend. "

  • "we had an amazing dinner at the three ravens. the only problem was, that there arrived a group of 7 people and they have been really loud. maybe more some guests for a pub. but the food was outstanding and the view amazing."

  • "We couldn't stop talking about how amazing our appy / meal / dessert was. Perhaps the ambiance is better/different when you can take in the view but after dark, it just felt like a high end cafeteria."

  • "Didn't know about this place until I was scrambling for Valentine's Day. Boy, I'm glad I found it. Best place I've been to in years and the food was excellent! I will definitely be going back!!"

  • "My partner and I enjoyed an incredibly romantic evening here on Valentine's Day. Managed to score a window seat, which looks out over Banff. Unfortunately, it was dark, so limited viewing, but still gave you a sense of space and wilderness. It was a prefix menu, which often means limited selections. Fortunately, that wasn't the case, as all options were exceptionally appealing to both of us and making a decision was difficult. Pacing was correct, service was attentive, and totally loved that it wasn't your normal noisy restaurant. Evening capped off with the spotting of a ten-point elk 10 feet away from us as we walked back to our car."

  • "I recently dined at Three Ravens Restaurant for my anniversary. It is a fantastic restaurant for a special occasion. Amazing food (plated beautifully) and probably the best view you can find in Banff for dining! I would definitely return and I recommend it to others travelling to Banff!"

  • "Book dinner so you catch the sun set over the 180 degree view of the Rocky Mountains. Portions aren't large, so you can enjoy a starter and still have room for dessert after your entrée. Our table of four all greatly enjoyed every starter we ordered, as well as the superb entrees. Dessert, a sampler of two or three choices, was a bit disappointing after everything else was so good. The napoleon was mostly whipped cream and the chocolate delice was not as described. The poached pear was nice. Great wine list, with most dishes having two or three recommended wines to accompany them. Service is attentive but not stifling. When you order three courses with wine it is expensive but the quality is excellent, so it's worth the occasional splurge."

  • "We were the only ones to dine at Three Ravens Sunday night. The service was attentive and excellent. The appetizers were of an amazing quality, which might have set us up for disappointment with the mains. The foie gras was amazing, but unfortunately the Buffalo and the Duck were quite tough, perhaps a bit overdone? But the view is fantastic and the ambience is incredible."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Our server was probably new and had some obvious first table jitters, but held himself well and was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the food with some good suggestions. The food was great. It was tasteful and well presented. The portions, however, were very small. I don't expect to walk away hungry from a $200+ dinner for two. The mushrooms that were part of the reason I chose my dish turned out to be a grand total of one mushroom. But again, that mushroom was very tasty. In their defence, my partner who is about half my size said she had a hard time finishing dessert. Between the quality of the food, the impressive wine list and the view of the setting sun this was a great place to start our evening out at the Banff Centre."

  • "Wow. Found this gem by accident. Food, service and plate presentation are outstanding."

  • "This restaurant has a view fit for any one who loved the mountains. I think it is a must for visitors. We brought our friends visiting from Houston and they loved it view, the open clean lines in the decor, and the food. I like this restaurant enough to put it on a wish list for a rehearsal dinner."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Great service in an outstanding part of Alberta. Food was excellent as was the service. I would recommend this place prior to attending a show at the Banff Centre. Recommend taking a taxi as parking can be a bit difficult as suggested by hotel staff (though we did not try ourselves). Our reservations were at 8:00 pm and there were only 5 other tables occupied so made for a quaint and quiet dinner."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Tucked away on the top floor of the Sally Borden Buildiing at Banff Center this hidden gem delivers amazing views and food that is fit for the most discerning foodie. Not only are some greens raised in their own greenhouse but great care is has been taken to select the best wine, meat and produce possible. We also really enjoyed their tapas style dessert menu which offers the opportunity to try several small savory sweets instead of just one. Service is top notch and the only negative is the cafeteria next door. Occasionally noise bleeds over despite the great effort the restaurant has expended to isolate you in your own dining cocoon."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "The butternut squash soup and duck breast were both very delicious, rich in flavours, and presented really well. We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was very quiet. Better to go during the day when you can enjoy the view."
    Dined on 1/7/2014
  • "When we arrived we were seated promtly in their quiet dining room (great as it was new years yet we wanted a relaxing evening). It took ages for our server to come over to bring water and even longer to bring our drinks. I was afraid to even ask for a wine decanter as i thought our server would never come back. The menu could use a revamp as there we not even any appitizers we were interested in trying (maybe be more creative then a waldorf salad) and when our mains arrived my partners lamb was cold and mine was room temp. We would have informed our server but he did not come over once to check on us, let alone to fill our wine glasses. We left rather disappointed, but this type of thing seems to be tr norm for dining in banff lately."

  • "We had the beef tenderloin which was superb. Discordant notes were struck by the appetizers - the scallops barely qualified as plural - there were only two! And the Caesar salad, although quite tasty, would have been more appropriate as a luncheon size although this size issue was not nearly as jarring as with the scallops. Deserts were also quite average given the quality of the restaurant and prices. Server was very pleasant and efficient and the view of the mountain and valley setting was spectacular."

  • "Best tenderloin I have ever had. Melts in your mouth. Serving staff was very attentative and excellent! Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for everything."

    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "The food was very good but the surroundings left a little to be desired, although they had tried to separate the areas you could still easily notice and hear the large buffet type dinning next to private dinning area, along with the dish/ cutlery station. there was no parking available so we had to park further away which made it difficult in dress shoes and heels (along with a warning ticket from the security office)."

  • "While at Rimrock Hotel I mentioned 3 Ravens to concierge and he convinced me to try it. Wow! Great decision. Excellent service, food, wine, and majestic views of the mountains. Dessert was even good too :) Filet mignon was fantastic and lamb was delicious and tender. Also, it's indoors, so you don't need to fight off bugs while enjoying your dinner and the view. While at restaurant I cancelled following night's reservation at another place and we can back to 3 Ravens on the last night of our trip. Second night was just as good as first. Don't think I could pay a better compliment to the chef / restaurant than this! Highly recommend this restaurant! Hope we get back here sometime soon."

  • "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."

  • "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."
