THeir 3 course dinner at $28 is great value and always offers some interesting choices that you might not order off an a la carte menu. In Wednesdays, the house wine is $5 a glass which you cannot beat as the quality of the wine is pretty good. The service is always wonderful and the owner, Anthony is always present ensuring everything runs smoothly

Have loved this restaurant previously, but on this night it was packed. We waited 1 1/2 hour for our meal, with no apology. We saw tables that came in after us getting their food before us. The food, which we have always liked, was not at it's usual quality. Cold too. I could have made this at home myself (I love cooking) and it would have been better. Sad.
I like to have a place to go where I can get something special.

This has been one of my favorite places to come over the years and I wanted to go to a place that was outside as in these times as I feel better being outdoors with spacing. It has the most idyllic setting, cozy and beautiful surrounded by plants and trees. and no loud music. A perfect place to come for our anniversary. I have food sensitivities and other dietary issues so I can only eat a few things and the thing I had my heart set on a certain dish which unfortunately was already sold out so very disappointed. I had to settle for something that I did not really want but which would fit my dietary issues. A little disappointing for the occasion. However the setting felt safe and the ambience good.

Thank you for your feedback, our patio definitely offers a great setting whilst still adhering to social distancing rules. We apologise that we were out of your favourite dish - it must have been a favourite for many others too! We will take you comments to our kitchen team and ensure we have enough of everything for your next visit.

It was a bad experience for us!

We ordered specifically no croutons in our french soup, it was 3 order of french onion soup and they brought all of them with regular bread croutons, then they LIED that it was gluten free bread, when it was NOT!
We ordered Egg planed as a small portion, they charged us as for the Large (extra) and then they argued with us!
It's not that we were cheap, it's them being arguing with us, when we were there first time and don't know how the portions look like. They might brought large size, BUT IT IS NOT WHAT WE ORDERED AGAIN!

VERY RUDE SERVICE, the chief literately was glaring at us.

We visit Canmore several times a month, and will never go back to this restaurant!
Have no idea why they have 4.7 here, they don't deserve that.

The Market Bistro
Responded on June 18, 2020

We apologise for the mix up with the Soup, we take allergies very seriously and proudly offer gluten free bread alternatives to cater for celiac diets amongst many of our dishes, I can assure you that you received gluten free croutons. We’re sorry you received a larger portion of Eggplant, however you were charged for the appetizer size despite enjoying the larger portion. If you would like to discuss further, please reach out via email. Regards, The Market Bistro Management Team

Obvious French (Québécois?) influences but that doesn’t stop them offering pizza and curry (the latter as part of the Menu du Jour).

I had (shared) cheese board with extra for charcuterie which turned out to be only a small amount of one meat. But all very tasty.

Then cassoulet. It was quite good although obviously reheated from a previously made batch.

Then maple crème brûlée. Too cold to enjoy the full flavour but well executed. Not as tasty as I had hoped.
