    Again the food was spot on, the service was a tad shakey, bartender had to learn their signature Whiskey drink. Still going to come back

    Not once did the server ask us how our food was. We ordered the beef carpaccio but no bread or crustini comes with it, you should perhaps think about adding that to accompany the carpaccio. Also no second drink was offered. Overall experience was not worth the money

    Lovely food, recommend the duck confit or duck flat bread in particular. The music can be very loud, and when it's full, the restaurant can be a cauldron of noise. When it's quiet, it's a relaxing and great place to grab a nice meal in a simple surrounding.

    Unfortunately, our first time at the Market Bistro was very disappointing. My husband and I decided to share the charcuterie board before ordering our meal. The description in the menu sounded great! The board was to include 4 cheeses, baguette, crostinis, dried fruit, pickles, nuts and preserves. When the board arrived we noticed the assortment was not as listed on the menu. Our board looked a bit sparse. It included a few crostinis in the middle, a bit of cheese, a few small cherry tomatoes cut in half I might add, a half a teaspoon of 3 preserves and a small handful of cashews. We ordered salami as the meat item, and it appeared. Oh, I forgot to mention, the most plentiful item on the board was limp arugula to add a splash of green and to make it look full. I spoke with our server about the menu listing and what appeared on the board. She stated that they never serve dried fruit, and instead of the 2 types of bread (baguette and crostini) they offered another dot of the preserve. She was not pleased that we were questioning the items and offered to go to the kitchen to try and find pickles. Lol At any rate, quite a sad charcuterie situation. Considering all of the really good, not to mention all of the great restaurants that Canmore and Banff have to offer, I really would not make the mistake of selecting this restaurant. Please choose another spot. A simple charcuterie board is not a culinary difficulty. It should be relatively easy to complete and serve. When our server asked if we would like to order a meal or dessert we quickly declined, then paid our bill and went off to find dinner.

    The menu is diverse and varied enough to please without being Canada formula, boring or dull. The ambience has everything to do with the mountain setting not the decor in the restaurant. The only thing I absolutely dislike is the flatware it's hideous not even worthy of a diner, certainly not excellent food.

    What a wonderful dining experience. The food was so flavourful. The Gorgonzola gnocchi was part of a special Easter menu but that should be a regular! So good! A small unassuming restaurant with outstanding food and service. A very enjoyable dining experience. Best food we had in a while!

    Two large tables that were very loud unfortunately negatively impacted our experience. This is a very small space, so when a table of 16 and another table of 8 are seated at the same time, the four or five other tables of 2-4 people suffered. Speed of service was also impacted by these large tables, as we didn’t even receive our drinks until our appetizers arrived. I would try this restaurant again, but not on a weekend.

    The meals, deserts, and lovely drinks were excellent. The server however, requires training. Our satisfaction with the first bites was never checked on, we weren’t queried if we wanted more drinks or tea/coffee with desert, and had to ask for more water, desert, and our bill, two of which were addressed by other servers. The server was sweet and kind, but not attending to the needs of her customers or possible additional sale of items.

    I've returned to the Market Bistro numerous times and I've always had an excellent experience. The food is of course the highlight and has been outstanding on every occasion; the service is efficient and friendly and thankfully not overwhelmed with the trendy restaurant banter so often regurgitated in the chain restaurants. I love and appreciate the Market Bistro!
