THROUGH THE SAUVAGE LOOKING GLASS:

An experience driven tasting menu restaurant in the heart of Canmore.

“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.

Chef Tracy Little connects the guests 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, through a Tasting Menu or a guided story menu.

    Amazing food, good wines and accompanying mocktails. The only thing we think can be improved is a little slower serving the various courses. A slightly lower Place would have Made the evening even more perfect.

    I received a reservation cancellation notice from the restaurant AFTER we dined & left the restaurant. I needed to contact Open Table and have this reversed so that I could post a review. They knew we were unhappy so I find this highly suspect. And, apparently this "mistake" has happened a lot at this particular restaurant as per the Open Table representative. One way to deal with negative reviews I guess... A subpar experience that came with a hefty price tag. Over 2 hours into a seven course experience we had only been served four items. Most servings were only a bite or two so there was a lot of waiting. When we realized we were on track for another 1.5 hours to completion, and with plans for the evening, we requested the bill and advised our server that we hadn't anticipated a 3+ hour meal so we'd need to forgo the last 3 items. To her credit she did manage to get our dessert packed up and served our bison (by far the best part of the meal). However, another server took it upon himself to come & lecture us. Feeling the need to advise us that we were only 2 hours and 9 minutes into our meal (yes, he was that specific) and 2 hours and 15 minutes was allocated for the experience. Math clearly not his strong suit since we'd only had 4/7 items with six minutes of allocated time left. Some might find it enjoyable to spend an entire evening at Sauvage however it might be wise to ensure guests are well aware at time of reservation. I'd also recommend asking about time constraints at the time of seating. However there is a level pretentiousness here that seems it unlikely that there would be any willingness to deviate much from the drawn out affair. And while it is extremely difficult to find and keep staff these days, employing wait staff that are rude and confrontational hardly seems the best decision. Additionally, this is not a place for vegetarians or those less adventurous as there are no substitutions for items such as the YAK tartar with ants.

    Sauvage RestaurantResponded 3 days ago

    We absolutely offer a vegetarian menu and also do substitutions for dietary restrictions. Due to the nature of preparing Tasting Menus, it is not always possible to substitute courses. We are very open about our food being an adventure and are sorry that it was not for you. Please take care.

    Absolutely incredible tasting menu and wine pairing. I recommend Sauvage to everyone I know now. Truly one of, if not, the best restaurants in Canmore. I loved Tapas, but Sauvage is an incredible follow up and they’ve truly made the space their own. I’m celiac and after working in the restaurant industry for a long time, I can understand the strain it can put on the kitchen. The Sauvage team didn’t miss a beat and provided me with an exceptional meal- I don’t feel like I missed out at all. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and wine but also so lively and friendly. Cannot say enough good things. Cannot wait to be back!

    We chose the tasting menu with wine pairings for my husband's 50th birthday and from start to finish it was fabulous. The food was fantastic, wine pairings were perfect, and they even brought out birthday champagne and a card signed by the staff. What a wonderful place with delicious food. We can't wait to come back! Our faves were the gnocchi and the bison tenderloin, but everything was amazing.

    Simply Amazing. We did the chef's choice with wine pairing and it did not disappoint. Every dish that came was bursting with unique local flavours. If you are picky, chef's choice is not for you. Chef Tracy you have ruined normal food for us, and we loved our waiter Sully, knowledgeable and fun! With an open mind and an interest in culinary magic, this is it!
