    Reserved inside for 7 people but graciously were seated outside on a beautiful warm evening. Seven female colleagues in town for a conference, service was amazing, wish I could remember her name!

    I felt like this was a “must stop“ on our visit. I get the appeal… People watching from an elevated deck while having great drinks and pretty good bar food. Meal was so-so (just imagine pretty good airport food). But the drinks and views were amazing. Stop here for a drink, but have dinner at Murietta’s or someplace else afterwards.

    The service was pleasant and attentive. The food was disappointing and less than average. We ate as a family of 3 with 2 appetizers, 3 mains and 2 drinks and the bill was 142 dollars w/o tip. We had chicken on all 3 dishes and it is the type you buy that is cooked and flash frozen in bags - ready to reheat. It was slightly warm at best and had the consistency of pressed sawdust. Will not go back and will not recommend to friends or family.

    I didn't enjoy my food. Our server (she had purple hair) kept walking away from our table without taking all our drink orders. She finally got all our drink orders when we were ready to order our food (20 minutes after we sat down). 3 ordered the $42 steak and they came out not how they were ordered (as far as how they preferred to be cooked). The waitress blamed the confusion on us. One of them was given just a plate with a new steak on it....not with the sides....and another person got a full new plate with new sides so there wasnt consistency. Waitress did not come and ask how the meals were....we had to flag down another server to have her bring our waitress over. I asked for my bill as my friend was not feeling good and needed to leave. 20 min later we still didn't have our bill so we had to go to the front to get it. Very unhappy with the service.

    The chicken was very dry, asparagus way over cooked and bottom wood end not removed before cooking or serving. Steak was charred black and dry. Garlic herb fries were tasty and beer list was good. Overall disappointed on dining here

    The Wood is my favorite restaurant to go to when we are in Canmore. Reasonably priced for the area and the best views, especially in the summer when the patio is open. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal here, and it's a bonus that you can park right behind the building.

    We showed up for our reservation and the waiter informed us they were not open yet and that they did not take reservations. He was very rude and we chose to leave and go elsewhere. Open table should remove this option if they don’t take reservations.

    When we booked our lunch reservation we did not have access to a 12 noon time, so we took 11:30 am. At noon there were 4 out of 12+ tables occupied. At 12:35 pm there were still 4 out of 12+ tables occupied. It caused us to leave Calgary earlier than planned for the day. Not sure if that's OpenTable's issue or the restaurant's. Otherwise the lunch experience was a little cool outside, but overall excellent.
