    The server was helpful and knowledgeable with the menu and with recommendations. The courses was just perfectly portioned with a subtle taste, the bison was so tender and perfectly seasoned. It was a fine dining experience the we enjoyed with the view of lake and finished up with table side presentation of tiramisu.

    We were on vacation at Jasper Park Lodge and wanted to experience a lovely evening. We were disappointed. The flowers on our table were dead. Our first course was the best. We all enjoyed them and they were beautiful. For entrees - Two had the the Italian sausage pasta dish. It was incredibly salty and overly spicy. The menu gave no indication that it would be that spicy. They had a hard time eating it and mentioned it to our server who said she would let the chef know. The other two entrees - chicken and potatoes was good. The desserts were beautiful. The deconstructed strawberry dessert was tasty. The chocolate was beautiful. Lemon sorbet had cooling effect desired. We expected more for $72/person. We were disappointed. We thought the Fairmont would have better.

    Out of our entire 2 weeks in the Canadian Rockies, this was by far our worst dining experience. The restaurant decor was nothing special. We asked for a lake view and were directed to a window seat that was in full sun through filthy windows with no view of the lake since there was a hedge blocking it. The hostess and server were cold and impersonal. We’ll likely never be back to Jasper CA again, but if we do return, this place will NOT be in our list of restaurants!

    If you go ask for Kiran V. He was awesome and made great recommendations to both of us. Try the Lamb with the totally delicious mashed potatoes and Kiran’s suggestion of the BC roasted mushrooms . Not sold however on the Tiramisu. I highly recommend this Trattoria if you in Jasper.

    Italians have an expression “slow food” to describe the way a great meal is enjoyed. This was slow food at its finest with very creative dishes.

    My husband and I were looking forward to a special dining experience at Orso Tratorria . We were seated in the elegant dining room by a lovely hostess. Our waitress was fabulous. However the food was very mediocre especially considering the elevated prices. In fact the Arctic Char fish dish I ordered was truly terrible. When the waitress asked us how we were enjoying the meal I was a bit embarrassed to reply that the fish was dry and overcooked and with out a delicious flavor. The Swiss chard was stringy and tough and the gnocchi were undercooked and inedible. I was graciously brought a replacement pasta dish but it was not what I was looking forward to eating. I ordered a beet and goat cheese first course and it had obviously been prepared hours before. The red beets had colored the golden beets and there was a tiny bit of goat cheese smeared on the plate. For dessert we ordered tiramisu for two prepared table side and it was over saturated with alcohol and a very poor version of this often enjoyed treat. My husband ordered a ribeye steak which he did enjoy. We have been in the Canadian Rockies for almost three weeks and have eaten top notch meals at the Post Hotel in Lake Louise, next level cuisine at the Moraine Lake Lodge and excellent food at several Jasper restaurants. Our dinner at the Orso Trattoria was the most expensive and by far the least well prepared food. I must compliment the waitress and the hostess who were both lovely. I rarely write a negative review but we were so disappointed in the quality of the food that we would not consider dining at Orso Trattoria again.

    We came to celebrate getting married, we were greeted with positive staff who were excited for us. From the onset they treated us with such respect and kindness which gave us a wonderful feeling of joy on a special day. Kiran V was our server and he guided us through the experience wonderfully. He made personal recommendations which I loved and cannot thank him enough for encouraging me to try, as well made my (newly) wife feel special all night. He was personable, gave us time, took photos for us, and made the experience what it was, the staff here do amazing things and go to great lengths to ensure you leave with a belly full of delicious food and drink, as well with an amazing memory of the night. Each course was delicious and the ambiance of the restaurant fit so well. It was the finest dining experience I’ve had, and being in the mountains with an amazing view made it even better, thank you so much for making my wife and my honeymoon perfect. I would also like to mention Jeff Stewart who got us the table by the window, you being excited for us made our experience even better and we can’t be more thankful.

    Really disappointed in our visit and meal at Orso. We took our two children because our son loves Italian food. We knew it was prefix, but we thought we could split some dishes. Our waiter made that difficult for us, very snooty. He was not able to really help us order a meal that fit us. It wasn’t really a cost issue for us, just wanted a good meal. Plus we were there almost 3 hours, to get served. This turned out to be one of the most disappointing and expensive meals of our Canada trip. I also seemed to have been overcharged and didn’t catch it. We ate at the fairmont Banff springs, Waldhaus restaurant and it was our favorite meal. Orso should take the snootiness down a couple notches, and maybe serve a couple a la cart Italian dishes.

    Orso Trattoria was fantastic, great ambiance and service. More casual than I expected and we were seated next to a large lively table, but nothing obnoxious. I had the Carbonara and it was probably one of the best Italian dishes I've ever had, it was velvety smooth and very rich with the large egg on top. We enjoyed the table side tiramisu but it was just ok, it was a hard act to follow after the carbonara. I enjoyed a great drink the nacional royale, it was amazing but so was the price at $31. All in all very nice night out, enjoyed the food and had a nice view of the lake.

    We keep coming back to Orso. Always amazing food---tasty, well presented and professionally served. John our server was our server last year also---he is knowledgeable, professional and knows the menu. The restaurant has a great selection of items, and many can be gluten free. Also available is their patio. We look forward to the next time we can visit Orso.

    Food was expensive and underwhelming. Prix fixe was a good option but limited choices. Substitutes were pricey. Bison tenderloin was a disappointment. But the service was impeccable. Kieran was very attentive and entertaining. We felt he made up for a lot that was lacking from the kitchen.
