We booked in for our anniversary. Dinner was nice, fairly good portion sizes and we loved their fun cocktails. We tried the berry smash and the raspberry spritzer, they were light and fruity. Dinner wise we had the salmon and I found there to be a bit too much sauce but it was easy to take some of it off. My husband had the Parmesan crusted chicken and it was delicious! Very tender and juicy chicken. Our server Jada was wonderful. Very sweet and attentive! Dinner was a bit on the pricey side but was served quickly and efficiently, the views are lovely and overall it was an enjoyable evening.

The food is overpriced for the quality for sure!! When you are charging $35+ for an entree, it better be pretty darn good and we found the food just average at best. Would not come back.

The food was lovely, apart from the vegetables which were a bit hard and bland. The wine wasn’t the best and was quite pricey. Overall the food was tasty and the setting was lovely.

Both the red and white sangria were extremely good. The flatbread was also very good. We thought it had great flavour and presentation. The lettuce wraps are just large pieces of bell pepper with a protein on top. You have to chop them yourself to fit into the very small pieces of lettuce provided. They don’t have much flavour either. Definitely would not recommend them.

We booked to have dinner at The Chophouse because it had a view of the lake. And it was awesome experience.

Jacob our server was very friendly and made us feel very welcomed.

The price of the entrees were definitely on the higher side, but what can I say...its Waterton Park. So expect that prices will be inflated by a few dollars more.

The price points here are WAY TOO HIGH for what you get. And flavour taste wise very average at best. Bathrooms were also very dirty....not a good look during a global health crisis. And I’ve always said if a restaurant is willing to let bathroom cleanliness slide....what else are they slacking on? Don’t think I’ll be a repeat customer.

We always eat here when visiting Waterton. There are slightly fewer menu items right now because of a restricted opening (so so warm beet salad, even though it's on the website menu). Not a huge deal, just be aware. Otherwise, fantastic food (we did dinner and breakfast there this time), great seats on the patio.

Had a wonderful view of the water. Dinner was delicious. Server was knowledgeable and offered wine recommendations. My only possible critique was that they were a little slow in helping us settle up once it started to rain while we were on the patio. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience.

These are tough times for most businesses and staffing is very difficult not knowing what tomorrow holds. On this trip to Waterton (an amazing place!), we met several workers on their first or second day in position. That having been said, the service at the restaurant was challenged but trying hard. Our appetizer arrived without the aioli dip but we chowed done as things were taking longer than expected. Also, not a butcher, but my bison ribeye was more a strip loin and a little tough. I know that they can, and will do better.

Food passable (think Moxie’s 15 years ago but most dishes priced near $40 or 50) but view is definitely the highlight here. Friendly & efficient staff. Ask for Jada.

Loved this restaurant. The view is absolutely gorgeous . Try fried Calamari there. I would say one of the best Calamari I have ever eaten.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my daughters birthday. Little that we know every after thanksgiving celebration the restaurant will close for the winter season. I normally check the website for announcement or special menu but in the website says nothing. Everything is limited base on what is left with the restaurant inventory. Open table customer review is fantastic about the staff but I find that in our visit most of them will just ignore customers and a bit stress. Talking about how they will clean the restaurant after. Staff should be trained better on how to handle this kind of situation and customer experience should not suffer.

We had reservations for dinner at 4:30 pm on Saturday evening, we showed up 15 minutes early and wanted to sit on the deck and have a drink before coming back inside to have your dinner. The host said that it wouldn’t be possible as this would require us moving back and forth and couldn’t guarantee us a spot back inside. But they weren’t that busy at this time so we stayed inside.
Brian our waiter was friendly and very helpful with the questions we had about the menu. However the other staff were very noisy in setting the other tables around us clanging plates and cups... unprofessional in this style of restaurant.
The food was ok.... not great and wouldn’t recommend any of my friends to go here.
Also there were lots of flies around our table

The occasion was our 47th anniversary. The waitress Liz did all she could. We ordered soup salad and the prime rib dinner. Food was amazing but the soup and Caesar salad arrived together, as soon as we begin to eat the soup the meal arrived. As this is a higher end restaurant I didn’t expect Diner service. The waitress didn’t deliver the
Food another worker did. We were disappointed. We are not an elderly couple who eat slowly, but needed to eat quickly so food wouldn’t get cold. They at least should have waited until we completed the soup. No compensation of any kind was offered for this type of service after we mention this problem.
