    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 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.

    The service and the food were both excellent. The one concern was that there is no ramp so it is not wheelchair accessible, and that made getting to our table on the patio a bit of a challenge. The washrooms are in the basement down a long flight of stairs so that was not accessible either.

    We really enjoyed our evening at the Wood. It was the last in dining evening before the latest lockdowns and we were looking for somewhere that had an interesting menu and a good local feel. We were not disappointed, both of our meals were delicious and we had the apple crisp for dessert and it was great!

    After making a reservation for 7pm, we arrived 5 minutes before 7 and waited for 20 minutes before even being greeted at the front. Once we were finally seated, it took another 10 minutes before a server arrived to order drinks. We did not once even get asked if refills were needed/wanted and therefor left with empty glasses. The food was not good. The “in-house smoked” brisket was clearly not smoked and tasted like it was from a store bought package. The bread for the brisket was soggy. The chicken sandwich was dry and bland. The restaurant was very dark as we weren’t beside a window (needed to use our phone lights to even read the menu).

    The Wood Restaurant & LoungeResponded on April 16, 2021

    Thanks for the feedback and we apologize your recent experience was not the best. For our beef brisket we use Alberta Angus brisket 12 hour smoked in house. It and the grilled open face chicken sandwich are two of our more popular items. Sorry you did not enjoy them. Hope you will give us another try in the future

    Food was great. Hubby had the beef dip. While advertised as braised beef tips. It was sliced beef. Still tender and tasty though. I had a burger and salad. It was juicy and flavourful. And came with a very large house salad. Over all it was a great night out.
