Perfect breakfast with perfect views. Impeccable service too!
Service was very slow and food was just okay; definitely overpriced. Of our group of 7, 4 people were happy with their entrees and 3 were underwhelmed with poor execution, lackluster flavor, or both. Needless to say, our special occasion meal did not feel very special at all.
My husband and myself came here to have our first meal in Banff and it did not disappoint! Great food, great service, and GORGEOUS mountain views. I cannot recommend this place enough!
Absolutely wonderful food, wonderful experience. Best dining experience we’ve had in Banff.
Very nice setting with amazing views of the mountains. Food (steaks) were excellent. Cooked perfectly as were the veggies.
Great food and service with a spectacular view! A great option in Banff.
Excellent food and service, beautiful views. However, small dining area was a bit loud.
I booked this restaurant through Open table.
They perfectly knew my request. Dinner was Fantastic. Also it was very happy for my family to see beautiful scenery during all the time for dinner. I recommend this place for people to visit in Banff.
I had been meaning to try the Juniper for a while and finally got around to it during a weekend get-away. I wish I'd gone sooner!! The atmosphere was terrific and the food and staff was even better! We went on Sat morning for brunch and shared the Juniper Benny and Stuffed French Toast... truly a culinary treat! The value for the dining experience was excellent! The staff was very friendly and offered suggestions on local hikes and drives, etc. It was a bit cool to eat out on the patio, but the views of Banff and area are still spectacular.
Can't wait to go again!!
Great place to have breakfast. The view is amazing. Staff are friendly and the food did not take long.
It was totally worth for breakfast. Excellent views, good ambience and casual.
Service was a bit slow. Food was good although asparagus fennel soup was not great. Meat dishes were good. Limited menu, especially since 2 of the items on the menu were out when we arrived for a 7:00 dinner.
Really enjoyed our time at the juniper bistro. My boyfriend and I went for the first time and were shocked at the freshness and quality of food. Our server was great, she was there when we needed her and was very friendly !
Will definitely come back and recommend to our friends
Amazing as always! Gorgeous day on the patio. Weekend brunch is the best in Banff!!
Delicious food, great service! Will definitely be back! Thanks to Candice for an awesome experience.
My husband and I don’t get out alone much and this was a perfect spot for brunch date. The eggs benny that we ordered were delicious and my first time trying rabbit was not disappointing. The view of the mountains was amazing and the coffee was delicious. My only complaint is that the water they poached the eggs in had a bit too much vinegar in it.
Food was great & the view was spectacular! Service was good
The food was great and our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The only downside was that the food was served on cold plates, meaning it lost its own heat very quickly; but the range of dishes was great, with excellent, locally-sourced ingredients. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Banff!
We pulled into the parking lot and immediately thought we might regret this meal as the Juniper Hotel looks more like a motel. We proceeded into the restaurant and again felt we made a mistake. The views are amazing but it’s more of a cafe setting. But, once we saw the menu and ordered our food we realized that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. The food was absolutely awesome, service was excellent. 10/10 would recommend. If you when it’s warm out, try to sit outside on the amazing deck.
The restuarant was recommended by a waitress from another restaurant. My first time in Banff and I wanted to eat great food in a place where I could reflect. I sat in the bar because the restaurant was full. Had a great table by the window and looked at the scenery while I read, drank wine and ate a delicious meal. The bartender/waitress was delightful and the food arrived hot. She provided a wine taster which prevented me from purchasing a wine I did not like. My second choice was great lake breeze by the glass in a red. I wish lake breeze pinot blanc was by glass instead of bottle. The new pinot gris option was from a winery I was no familiar with and it had a good start but a bad finish. I like being left alone to enjoy the food, ambience and scenery outside. I wish the weather had been warm enough to sit outside. I would definitely recommend and return.
Mountain View is breathtaking, and foodie and wines are also great. I would recommend here to my friends and I will visit again.
Great view of the mountains. Food was fantastic! Will definitely go back.
Sunflower salad with sunflower sprouts and tiny squash...hand made gnocchi in a delightful tomato and spinach sauce! Oh and then there is the striped bass stuffed with potatoes and the fig and pear compote! Did I mention breakfast...eggs benny with salmon...stuffed french toast...or perhaps the chefs choice quiche of the day!
The food taste sensational and the service just as wonderful!
Worth the trip out of the Banff town centre to the Juniper Hotel at the bottom of the road to Norquay ski hill. Juniper Bistro rocks!!
This is my favorite restaurant in Banff! My boyfriend and I come here for all of our special occasions. I'm also a concierge at the springs and I recommend to my guests all the time! The game duo is my fav dish!!! We will be back time and time again :) thank you!
My wife and I really enjoyed eating at the Juniper Bistro since we were staying at the Hotel also. Both dinner and breakfast were fantastic! They accommodated our dietary needs graciously, they offered us options between two tables with nice views. We visited in April which felt like low season but we got great service and attention nonetheless. The food was Instagram worthy and very satisfying for our tastebuds and appetites. We enjoyed our anniversary stay and meals so much we would do it all over again! Thanks to everyone at the Juniper!
I highly recommend a visit to the Juniper Bistro. The food is OUTSTANDING and the service is impeccable. Add in the views of Banff and surrounding Rocky Mountains and the fact that you can stay right there in the Juniper Lodge (no drinking and driving) and life is good!!
PS I have serious allergy issues and the crew at the Junioer Bistro go out of their way to work with me while still creating beautiful, unique, inspiring meals.
The food was spectacular and we had the dining room all to ourselves. Excellent service and a beautiful view.
Amazing Mountain View! The food and drinks were good as well
The brunch was very tasty at the Juniper Bistro! Service was very good as well.
It was great
Great food, excellent service and an unbeatable view. Went for a little apres-ski, followed by dinner and then breakfast the next morning. All were excellent.
Beautiful view of Mount Rundle. Excellent soup, creative, flavorful entrees; inspired chefs. Friendly & knowledgeable waiters.
Great service, very attentive to guests, great food. Had the wild boar and the scallop dinners and both where great.
Casual, relaxed and a little off the beaten track, it does indeed have an exceptional view, nice staff, and good food.
They didn’t accept our open table voucher, but the food was really good.
The manager working at dinner had a bit of an attitude problem. Other servers were all lovely!
Unfortunately my partners food was cold (he did not want to say anything) and he had the strip loin. The muscles were mediocre, delicious sauce but more focussed on the pomme frittes.
Brunch was very tasty - perfect seasonings, very flavourful. Restaurant also has great mountain valley views. Also liked that brunch offered till 2pm on weekends.
Great view !!! Enjoyed the breakfast menus with a cocktail while admiring the scenery.
Great spot for Sunday brunch to catch up with friends. Combine that with an amazing view, worth a day trip from Calgary to enjoy the experience.
I had the stuffed French toast with n alone and cinnamon puree. Unique and delicious. Definitely would return.
The food was fantastic. The service was great and the view is to die for! A must stop spot to eat!
