    Be aware: this is a tasting menu for the whole table. So everyone in your party has to agree on the number of courses. The only flexibility is between The Hunter and The Gatherer (vegetarian).

    The service and ambiance were wonderful, but when dining as a group, I would prefer tapas to be presented on a large platter where patrons can take individual tasting samples without having to each pull apart or clumsily separate, perfectly crafted tapas, or at least have our own individual plates with a smaller versions of the dish. I’m assuming if I was dining alone, I would have an individual portion designed for my plate. That was one turn off for a creative dining experience. If it’s a set tasting menu, more effort should be put into crafting individual sharing portions, especially since they’re quite small and creatively presented. However, the service was excellent and the food was quite delicious and locally sourced, which we appreciated.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded 2 days agoTara: We do explain that it is shared plates on both our website and when you arrive, I am sorry that this caught you off guard. If we crafted "individual sharing portions" I believe that we are wandering into the territory of canapes, which is not what we do. Due to the constraints of a tiny kitchen, we do the best that we can. I am glad to hear that besides the design of our plates, that you enjoyed all other aspects of your experience.

    It was unreal. The service was great the waitresses were great and oh man the food. My partner and I always wanted to try a tasting menu but always found it to be too much food (she’s got a gastric sleeve) and we are foodies, they don’t always mix. The gnudy? Gnocchi made with ricotta cheese was to die for. All of it. I love the owners stance on paying her staff properly, while still giving back and caring about sustainability. Well done all the way around we will be back

    WAY overpriced! $320 with tip for a diner for 2. Portions were very small- it was like sharing 5 very small appetizers. 1 oyster each, 1 bun and 2 small slices of bread shared, 15-20 gnocchi shared, 2 bites each 2-3 ounces of buffalo steak, shared chocolate cake. Will NOT be going back.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on January 5, 2023Rob: I'm not sure what was "lost in translation" but you ordered our small Tasting Menu. What you tipped is up to you, and what beverages were chosen, should not be reflected on our price. You were informed that it is not only shared plates, but that if you were hungry then the larger menu would be a better option for you. I know they don't have restaurants like us in Red Deer, but it is not an unusual concept. Please keep trying new things!

    Enjoyed the ambiance; however, we were an odd number (3) and were not served individual portions--one plate would have a larger portion to share and then there would be one small plate. It was awkward and not explained. Our host was also not very attentive--we were pouring our own drinks (this again is fine but not at this price point). Portions were very small (we needed pizza after) and some of the food was under seasoned. After experiencing fine dining and farm-to-table courses in other establishments (Yarrow and Range Road in Edmonton) I was disappointed. Not worth the near 1/2 grand for 3 people to then go eat at Panago down the street.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on January 5, 2023Lovesgoodfood: My deepest apologies for this horrible and atypical experience. I would ask that you please contact me directly at info@sauvagerestaurant.ca so I may find out more information, and rectify this situation with a partial refund. I take a lot of pride in my restaurant, and I would like to ensure this does not happen in the future. Off nights should not happen in our level of dining and there is no excuse. I'm so sorry, and I hope you do contact me.

    This was our second time at this restaurant, and it was everything we had enjoyed in the summer. We really enjoy the variety in the tasting menu, and appreciate the fresh ingredients.The plating is always creative and the local ingredients keeps us mindful that this restaurant is truly Canadian. We enjoy that the ingredients speak for themselves and are not smothered or over seasoned. Definitely will be back

    Food was just okay. Definitely over priced. Fun theme and creativity with the food though.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on January 1, 2023I'm so sorry that it was out of your price range; we were very up front about the price and what you were getting. A high demand night, at a high demand restaurant, on New Years Eve, of 8 courses. I know it's difficult to understand, but crafting such incredible quality food is extremely time consuming, everything is special ordered, in a tourist town where everything is expensive (that means staff and food too). Not to mention it's totally ok that not everyone "gets" food. Happy New Year.

    We booked the Ice fishing adventure for a birthday celebration, I do not like fish, but I loved this menu! Sully was fabulous and the menu was so creative and innovative, I would highly recommend this adventure or the inside fixed menu any day. All the staff signed a birthday card and “played” a music box version of Happy Birthday. It was perfect. Dayna

    While the food was indeed very good and the notion of using locally sourced and foraged ingredients is admirable and one we wholly support, the price of the table d'hote is out of line given the dishes served. The optional wine pairings are poorly chosen, especially when a low quality California wine is one of them. There are an extremely large number of wines from BC of higher quality that could be offered instead of the ones that were used. Will not return the next time we are in Canmore.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on December 21, 2022We won't talk about your screenname because I feel that it says everything. I'm not sure where you are from but in a rural tourist town, our prices are absolutely in line with not only providing the highest quality product, from local farms that are paid fairly for their products, but also for a living wage for staff in a town that is almost unlivable. The Californian wine you tasted is out of character for us, however, at quite a price per bottle it is definitely not low quality. Take care.

    We dined in a group of 6 and loved it. From the moment we walked i in the staff was INCREDIBLE. Drinks arrived quickly. The timing of the food was well spaced out. The food itself was absolutely delicious. We did a 3 course tasting menu that came with a delicious amuse bouche and a sample off the menu. The three courses were larger than expected for the price of the meal. Everything was perfect. We will be back!

    The service was good and I really enjoyed the wine pairings but the food was very disappointing. Each dish had potential but was very bland. Unfortunately, it seems the concept of foraged ingredients is more important than flavour.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded on December 6, 2022Hey Lisa: If you had an issue with the food it is more helpful to inform the server at the time of your experience, since it is hard to rectify any situation after you've left, especially when you portray that you are enjoying everything. I highly recommend that you test for Covid, not being able to taste is an unfortunate side effect. Please take care and stay safe this cold and flu season.

    There’s nothing “standard” about the dining experience at Sauvage. Ingredients like locally harvested pine flour, pine needle resin and birch syrup are just a few ingredients that fill out the creativity and passion for local abundance. It all comes together beautifully in every bite. Each time we return we get a strong sense of team spirit from the kitchen to table.

    John and Sully were wonderful. They were happy to repeat and explain any course that we had questions about. The ambiance of the staff was so happy and upbeat and even all of the tables sat around us were super friendly. The restaurant decor is stunning, and the food was very thoughtfully planned out and well presented. We never felt rushed at any point, but never felt like we had to wait too long for anything. Definitely a 10/10 experience

    Ice fishing was thought to be in a dome but ended up in an ice fishing hut on the restaurant porch. Heat was difficult to set but was sorted out. Service was inconsistent between each of 7 courses. A few were great with others so so. Way over priced for $175pp maybe $100-125 would be reasonable.

    The food was prepared perfectly using amazingly creative ingredients, and the presentation was beautiful. My wife had the vegetarian "gatherer" option and I had the non vegetarian "hunter" option. The Gnocchi with wild mushrooms was incredible. The bison was the best I have ever had. Everything was fantastic. John did a great job explaining the courses and was wonderfully attentive. I recommend the 7 course meal unless you are a light eater. I have a pretty large appetite and was comfortably full with the 7 course option. I highly recommend Sauvage!
