THROUGH THE SAUVAGE LOOKING GLASS:
An experience driven restaurant in the heart of Canmore (formerly Tapas Restaurant).
“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world," he said wisely one day, "but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.”― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Tucked away from the busy heart of town, you will find a charming character home on a sleepy side street, you may smell our fresh breads baking, or the sweet smell of the garden surrounding us, just a few of the sensuous experiences awaiting you.
Chefs Tracy Little and Renee Saulnier connected through their love of the mountains, of food and foraging. They incorporate this into everything they do with a focus on sustainability and craftsmanship. The servers will guide you in your experience, from a la carte, the Tasting Menu, or the experi

Absolutely loved every part of my experience at Sauvage. The service was outstanding from the minute we sat down until we finished off our dessert. The food was amazing. We were unsure about the elk shortrib but this and the ricotta gnocchi were our favourite dishes. We were also pleasantly surprised by the date cake! Thankfully, our server gave us the nudge we needed to try things we were unsure about. She was so confident that we would love it and she was not wrong. The atmosphere was awesome. It felt intimate but still energetic. I would definitely go back and would recommend this to anyone looking for a dining recommendation in Canmore!

We absolutely loved our experience and meal! By far the best service you can get in Canmore and the food is so gorgeous! We have been regulars since it opened as well and always look forward to our next visit.

Our first date night out in almost two years and we were not disappointed. The service was spectacular and we loved the intimate ambiance. We ordered the Chef's tasting menu and were delighted from course to course. We will be back!

A very magical place, felt like you were eating in an Alice in Wonderland setting. The food was good but I felt pricey for what you got. I would recommend the ricotta gnocchi but not the elk.

Sad to see it is no longer Spanish Tapas but the food was still very good but pricey for what you get. 11 dollars for a few slices of bread and 45 dollars for one large elk rib. Still worth a visit and unique.

Choosing what to eat will not be hard as menu options are very limited not more than 8 to 10 items. Dishes are for sharing. Food is creatively prepared and appealing. I found the meat balls and gnocchi tasty but over salted for my tastes. Neither of the 2 dessert options appeared to us.

We did the tasting and the food that should have been hot was luke warm. For the price it should have been perfection. We are let down as we thought it would have been better especially paying $300 for dinner for 2 people.
Mixology was good. Food was subpar.

Lovely setting and prompt, welcoming service. Mushrooms on toast decidedly boring. Little flavour, barely warm (perhaps intended?). Fortunately, there wasn't much of it. Yak meatballs much better. Braised dandelion and pickled onion good. Haskap berry a nice addition but would have been nice if there had been more than one.

Sauvage truly offers an incredible dining experience. We had the Chef’s choice and we’re not disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant. Chef Tracy Little has an incredible talent for creating new and exceptional dishes with her knowledge of mountain foraging. At the end of the meal order a Golden hour cocktail

With new ownership, we were not disappointed! The small plates and ambience of Tapas were still part of the experience and the food was exceptional. We tried 6 dishes and were stuffed by the end but we didn’t want the tasting menu this time. We should have had one less dish but it was hard to decide! Looking forward to going again it know that the menu is always changing. Kudos to the Chef and owner for preparing the freshest, local meals with the most incredibl flavors. Well done!!

Wow! Food, service, atmosphere all 10/10. I HIGHLY recommend this place.

I dined alone and had a cozy spot at the bar. The decor is dark, moody and fun. Can you spot all the bunnies?

Once seated I was kindly greeted by Ylva who was the bartender and my server for the evening. She took me on a culinary and cocktail journey that resulted in one of the best dining experiences of my life. Oysters, Bison Tartare and the Smoke Trout were outstanding! AND the custom cocktails were mouth watering. If you don’t finish the night with a “Bearly Russian” (or two) then you are missing out.

Thank you again for such an incredible evening!

In Canmore or area? You must try this place out!
