Was very impressed by this place! Food was very good and had great presentation. Somewhat of a hidden gem in Banff as it is not "downtown" on the main strip. I would definitely come back here!

Came here for our honeymoon and the Banff Mtn Film Festival. The food was delicious! Complimentary amuse-bouche, creative breads and butters, dynamite bison cuts and steelhead trout, both with an amazing and perfectly matched combination of flavors and textures for the sides. The only miss was the apple bread pudding with bacon ice cream. Bacon should be warm- would consider cinnamon or dulce de leche ice cream instead. The "pudding" seemed more like a milk-dipped piece of bread, and was not really caramelized or sticky like traditional bread pudding, and was barely warm or flavorful. But, our server kept our tight timeframe in mind since we were seeing the evening show within 2hrs of being seated, and service was fast and friendly. Would come here again, but would try a different dessert!

The Food and its presentation were beautiful . The flavours were very good but not for the brilliant visual appeal. The views from the room are stunning. Service, sadly was only fair. i.e. soup came with no soup spoon, no replacement of used utensils from course to course without making a request etc.

Entrees very good. Appetizers including soup very good except for terrine platter which was disappointing. Dessert was ‘meh’. Recommended wine was not available but wine selection and value was good.

Highlights are the quality of food and the view, at least in daylight savings hours. We were there during the Book and Film Festival and the dining area was not busy which made it quiet and very good for us. Highly recommended.

Cocktails are expertly crafted, the view is outstanding, service was excellent! Lovely for that special occasion.

I would have given this place 5 stars except I made the mistake of ordering seafood in Alberta. The Mussels were not nice at all. And honestly the service was far from 5 star also. Not because the server was not pleasant, but he was not as attentive as he should have been. We waited for our dirty dishes to be cleared between each course and waited on drink refills and for coffee to be made at the end of the meal. Next time I go back I will only order the local delicacies.

Three Ravens is in the Banff Arts Center and a little hard to find especially on a cold snowy day. The view of the mountains is outstanding. Our food was excellent and portion size was large so you can split an entree if you wish. The waitress who took care of us , Sarah Rose, was very delightful and helpful. As we talked to her more, we found out she was very interesting and adventurous. So our dinner along with our chat with Sarah made a snowy night very enjoyable.

Thrilled to find this local gem in Banff, in the middle of the arts center complex. Hard to see from the parking lot, but local art students pointed us in the right direction. Absolutely delicious, highly creative offerings, each one a word of art. An explosion of flavors. Don’t miss it!

The food was creative and outstanding! I love when restaurants use local ingredients and are proud to show off their cooking, pairing and plating skills. I would definitely eat here again. Thanks to our server Johnny who was energetic, knowledgeable and friendly. The bartender Conner kept us great company while we were waiting for our table to clear up.
Thank you Three Ravens!

My husband and I had a very nice experience at Three Ravens. It’s a little bit of a trek, but the food and service are well worth it. Unfortunately, we dined here on a very cloudy day, so the mountains were hidden from view. However, our waiter was wonderful, the food was tasty, and the wine list was great. Would definitely recommend!

The restaurant is almost impossible to find, even with GPS. The GPS directed us to a parking lot for a nearby apartment complex. We ran into ANOTHER COUPLE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. Parking is limited in front (once you find it). We accidentally parked in back and meandered through the arts building until a guard directed us to the restaurant. (Which turned out to be the easy way in.)

THEY NEED A SIGN AT STREET LEVEL that identifies the location !!!

Having dealt with that chaos, the food is spectacular. It has a great view of the mountains. Wonderful cocktails, top-notch wine selection, and very friendly staff.

Hands down, this is the best restaurant in Banff.

The food was outstanding and very creative. The waiter was informative and paced the meal very well. The wine list was solid with some excellent Canadian options. The view of the Rockies is absolutely stunning. That was a major draw for us until we checked out the food which was equally as good!

This place is a gem. I have high standards and it met every one of them. Great service. Amazing, unique savoury food. Lovely decor. Worth every penny. Will be the first place to go back to if I come back I banff and the must go to for any friend recommendations. I've traveled all over Alberta (and the world) and it's one of the best in our province. The soup was unreal. Apple something ... go. You won't regret it.
