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

My husband and I had the chef tasting menu, the variety of flavours as well as the presentation was lovely. I have never had yak before, and so when we were served yak carpaccio I just wasn’t sure how it would go. I cannot express how beautifully tasting this meat was, I could of had endless plates of it! This was just the beginning of our dinner, and the courses that followed were all absolutely delightful. We did not want to fill up on bread, but we just had to ask for a bit more of the house made sourdough, it was that good. There were hints of pine and bark flavours which were a new welcome taste to my palate. My husband and I truly enjoyed our experience.

The best part was the ambiance. The food came barely warm and such small portions for the cost. We had to go get food elsewhere after leaving over $200.00 bill for our meal. Very disappointed.

The food was amazing will definitely go back. There was only 2 wait staff that were kept very busy so service was a little slow but worth the wait. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Space was tight but overall a great experience.

The ambiance was romantic and cozy. The food was INCREDIBLE. The service was top notch. Overall, I cannot recommend Sauvage enough. Chef Tracy Little is an inspiration; an artist. This is a must-go restaurant in Canmore, AB.

We were very excited to try this restaurant. The service was very good and the room is very nice. We had the tasting menu and enjoyed 3 of 7 dishes. Overall the dishes lacked flavour and the meal was not of value for over 200 dollars.

Sauvage was a highlight of our trip to the Bow Valley! We sat at the bar and enjoyed every creation the bartender prepared and the creativity of every drink on the cocktail menu. We had a couple of small plates and they were amazing. We are still dreaming of the scrumptious potatoes and bacon!! The entire restaurant and vibe is cozy and made for a wonderful place to cap off our amazing vacation. Cheers to a great restaurant and wonderful staff. You must visit if you’re in Banff or Canmore!

We had the chef's tasting menu and enjoyed all of the food very much- it was flavourful and imaginative, well balanced and varied. Service was absolutely outstanding- everyone was friendly and knowledgeable; our waiter was attentive and paced the delivery of each dish with the speed we at which were eating. The restaurant is in a nice old house with cozy rustic decor- unfortunately quite cold, so bring a sweater. The price was a bargain compared to what I would have expected to pay for this caliber of food/ambiance/service.

The only downside to the whole experience was something that wasn't the fault of the restaurant- we were seated bext to a large party in which someone was wearing strong and cloying perfume, which made it more difficult for us to enjoy the subtle aromas and flavours of our meal. (Why would anyone wear scent to a restaurant?)

We hope to return!

We had not been out to dine since prior to the start of the pandemic. Our experience at Sauvage was such a treat. Service was great, food was a taste sensation and the atmosphere felt safe and comfy. Music was nice and really liked the quaint interior. We will be back for sure, love the food mantra as well of local ingredients (where possible). Highly recommend!

Wonderful food, a knowledgeable and pleasant server, and cozy, woodland chic decor all lend themselves to an unforgettable dining experience. The tasting menu offered a fantastic alternative for those of us who are frequently indecisive and suffer serious food fomo.

Dinner was amazing from start to finish. We were celebrating a big birthday and the treat at the start of the meal was a sweet touch. We loved sharing the tasting menu. Each course was unique and delicious. More than enough to fill us up without going over the top. Cocktails and wine were also great. Service was amazing as well. Can't find a fault other than Google maps wasn't very accurate, but we found it and and certainly hope to return.

The entire experience was an absolute delight. We sat at the bar and the staff, especially Alba were very engaging and wonderful to talk too. The food was layers of flavour profiles that were so lovely to savour. We will definitely rebook, every time we visit Canmore.

Great service, very clean, the 8 course meal was awesome and the food came out in perfect intervals that made for a perfect dining experience. A heads up tho the meat is cooked perfectly which means it pretty much raw. Perfect for us but not for everyone.

The food was very good, although perhaps not as wide a menu as the previous Tapa's. Service was very good, I might have liked music a bit more mellow. Although the menu items were still little plates they were served a bit faster than we preferred. It would have been nice to have them spaced out bit more. I would definitely recommend the Sangria.

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!
