We had the tenderloin steak that was so full of grizzle that we were forced to leave almost half of it. This was served with asparagus that were the size of trees and about as hard too! There was some mash potatoes that I swear were left over from the previous day regular potatoes and unpeeled! Yuck! Almost 50$ for that! Then the crème brûlée was from a package I’m sure-13$. Only the appetizer was ok but the wing skins were not crisp. Overall very poor quality...too bad because we had heard it was wonderful! The Zucchini noodle plate was passable.

Food and service were fantastic, everything cooked perfectly and tended to in a timely manner.

Ended up seated near the door and made it distracting with the coming and going of people. No big deal, but some sort of separation at that seating would be better?

Definitely not a big deal and will be back next time in Jasper 👍🏻

Thanks guys

My friend and I shared the calamari, mussels, and Brie. It was all so delicious! We finished off with a creme brûlée each, and wow. Creamy and decadent. I can’t wait to go back.

Good food, good service - we were seated at the bar rather than a table as they were all booked. I liked the gluten free options so decided to eat there rather than another retaurant with table service. That affected the ambience for me.

My partner and I always love eating dinner here when we are in town. Quite pricey but the food is always delicious and the service is always lovely. Definitely a place you have to be willing to splurge. A little bit more of a upscale dining experience; a level up from a casual dining restaurant. Good place to go to if you are in a group of people with diverse dietary needs.

If you like food that is a bit more elegant this is the place for you. We've been going there for years and find the menu to be a pleasant change from the ordinary. Seasonally changing which is great for us.

Make reservations as you will certainly be disappointed at a last minute sachet for dinner. ENJOY!

It was our first time here and we can’t wait to come back again. Service was fantastic! Food was incredible, we loved the appetizers, drinks and desserts. My partner was a bit disappointed with The Three Phaharohs. It was just different than he expected. But other than that everything was perfect! :)

Food was spectacular, the fondue was amazing, as was the chocolate pecan tart for dessert. All the other food that came out also looked incredible, can’t wait to go back to try the rest.
Such an amazing find! You have to go!

The food was not that great. To start, my wife had spring rolls which were made of phyllo dough sans butter or oil and were baked instead of deepfried which made them completely unapealing. The filling was sour cabbage and they came with a sour pesto dip, creating the tasting experience of sour on sour. Her entree was the beef wellington, which was not a beef wellington at all but rather a beef pot pie, however the spices used were more in line with seasoning for poultry leaving the diner with the puzzling sense of eating a chicken pot pie rather than a beef wellington . The mashed potatoes came with truffle oil poured over in such a way they became unpleasant and inedible. My wife found not one but 2 bay leaves in her beef pot pie, most professional chefs would consider bay leaves as potentially highly dangerous to the dining customer as they are known for being extremely sharp and should always be removed before service. Her vegetables were dry roasted to the point of dehydration and they had no oil or butter or salt, she also did not eat those.
I had the raven salad to start. It was good. A bit rustic but it was alright. My entree was the bison shortrib. The meat was tender. The potatoes were nothing special and the sauce was a sort of cherry compote, but the sauce was poured with a heavy hand and left my meal swimming . There was another absence of any seasoning. It was definitely not worth the big pricetag. I would suggest if you want to cook your food sans seasoning then at least put some salt and pepper shakers on the table.

Went here on a quiet Monday night for a birthday dinner . The ambience was alright with us being one of few in there. Food was average for the price paid . Wine I had was extremely unsatisfactory . Leaving most of it in the glass .
Service was fantastic , server was attentive and positive with the recommendations being on par .

Friendly staff, restaurant was full but we were well taken care of. Their cocktails were unique and delicious! Appetizer of bison flatbread was yummy. I had the lamb shank which tasted amazing and was very filling. Hubby had the Three Pharohs and he really enjoyed it. We were too full to enjoy dessert. Highly recommend this little gem and we will definitely be back.
