I would give this place more stars if I could. We literally stumbled upon this place at the last minute. Stayed at the lodge and booked dinner. It was outstanding. The salad was fresh and perfectly dressed. We had the steak and the beef ribs. Both were cooked perfectly. The vegetables on the side were also perfectly cooked. It was followed by two small but delicious desserts - chocolate mousse and panna cotta. We would go out of our way to come back here, hike and eat. We’ve had very expensive dinners all over the world and this would challenge any of them for quality.

The prices were very high for the food.
The food looks amazing in regards to how they plate it. The taste is just o.k, nothing special. Prices are way to high for what you get. 30 dollars for a very small piece of lasagne, 51 dollars for a very small piece of steak. Not worth it at all.

A quiet and relaxing spot to unwind after a day in the mountains. Great service was offered by Maria. The 3 course meal is the way to go with the best value. The soup was to die for, the beef rib was good, portion small though. The chocolate mousse to end the meal was superb.

For dinner the steak is worth it, and the salmon was delicious also. The portion of sides could be more, but it was all tasty. The rest of the menu looked equally appealing at nearby tables.
Breakfast was great too, but the service was not as good as the evening.

We had the braised short rib and duck offered on the Chef’s 3-course menu selection. Dinners were superb - very tasty, a good variety of seasonal vegetables, well presented, and excellent service. Highly recommend The Kitchen at Sunwapta Falls.

The food was spectacular. I had Duck which was truly mouthwatering . Our daughter had the charred salmon which she said was the best she had ever had. My husband had the special that he throughly enjoyed. The service was quick and friendly. We had booked for a later spot, we asked if we could eat earlier and they were happy to sit us. Yes it may be classed as expensive, however, this is not your usual menu, it was cooked superbly, beautifully presented and something a little different.Would so like to eat there again

A delicious meal with wonderful scenery! We came to enjoy an off the beaten path stay at Sunwapta Lodge. Our meal was flavourful and filling. Looking forward to trying their breakfast and lunch menu during our stay.

The service here was great! I would definitely come again. They were very accommodating for my allergies as well. The prices were comparable to Jasper or any other restaurant that I have been to. It was not overly pricey. And the servings were perfect!

Overall the experience was good. We were at the resort for our anniversary. Right away we were brought champagne on the house to celebrate. The food was good. Prices were pretty high for anything you got their. We didn’t realize that the restaurant was the only way to get food other than driving back to jasper for an hour. Nothing was included in the room and when I looked for things like breakfast the prices were insane. Ex. 5$ for a mini box of cereal or 10$ for oatmeal!

Always love to eat at Sunwapta! The rustic atmosphere in a secluded location combined with fine dining quality of food and impeccable service make this experience wonderful. The staff accomplished all this while maintaining the new norm of distancing. A visit to the falls tops off a great evening. My thanks to everybody who can make this happen at such a challenging time!
