We booked for a birthday dinner on our way home to Calgary from B.C. Our server way amazing. The burgers were okay. There was not a lot flavour. It reminded me of a pre-made boxed burger. The ingredients on it were fresh. The Caesar salad had to be picked through as there were a lot of brown ends. Desserts were fantastic!

Great place for a casual supper with friends. Surf and Turf was delicious and reasonably priced. Six o'clock seating was not all busy for a Friday night and food was well timed. Like other reviews service is lacking, had to get our own high chair, only saw one waiter. Would try it again.

Our server Claire C. was very attentive and kind. Very professional and anticipated our needs. Drinks and food were delivered quickly. She checked back at appropriate times and made good suggestions.
The fire was going in the fireplace and the view of the mountains was beautiful. The restaurant was reasonably priced. We were celebrating an anniversary and we were surprised by The Wood with a treat. Highly recommend for a comfortable place to get a decent meal and great service!

The blond waitress worn a to short skirt, we could see her but. She also forgot a lot of things. The wine i ordered, the extra mayo we asked for etc. The food was really good and fast. We have been there for only 45 minutes. Good price also. We only thought it was very strange that they asked for a tip on the receipt. And the percent for tips that they asked for was a bit high (they said 15-20 percent was normal in Canada).

Food ok for a restaurant of this quality (overpriced) but service was horrid. Empty appetizer plates left on table until mains were done, empty glasses not noticed and no 'would you like another'. May have just been because server was stoned or hated job, but left a bad impression.

It was easy to make a reservation on line and so, although it was busy on the patio,we were able to skip the line up and get a table outside. The staff was very good, the young lady who seated us was quick to find our reservation and clear a table and the servers are always good there. The food is bar food and it is great--with lots to choose from. Well done, once again.

Wood Restaurant was very inviting with a great staff and atmosphere. My wife and I are on our honeymoon and they gave us a glass of champagne to celebrate. The fixed price menu for the Canmore Food Festival was amazing. Our waitress Caitlin gave us a bunch of suggestions for this part of our trip. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend.

The food was average. We'd probably go back if the service wasn't so awful. We got seated, drinks food and then no one ever came back till the bill arrived. The space is quite nice and it was quiet. Mind you, it wasn't busy. They have a nice patio.

We have walked by the Wood Restaurant in the summer and always have noticed a lineup so we wanted to try your restaurant out for Valentines Day. We were excited to share the full rack of ribs for $30. When I asked the server what type of rub was on the ribs, he said it is a BBQ type rub and was not sure - but guaranteed to us that they are delicious. We received our ribs very fast and we were surprized as ribs do take at least 10-12 minutes on the Grill. We were given steamed or boiled ribs. These boiled and rubbery ribs had a strange mixture of pepper and BBQ sauce tasting like it was right out of a bottle. Your Ribs were so disappointing and such a shame to charge that amount when you do not put them on the grill. At least on your menu mention that they are "boiled" or "steamed" and the sauce was splotched and gooped on so sloppily that did not make us feel Special or that your Chef really cares at all for cooking. I think you should be aware of this in your kitchen. Thank you.

Our overall experience was great! The food and beer were perfect, but the service wasn't as good. Our server didn't refill our water (I only got water) and wasn't really around, nor did he check on us after we got our food. I would go again though and I recommend this restaurant.
