Three Ravens Restaurant & Wine Bar
This is one of those restaurants that you have a hard time deciding what to order! Everything is delicious and the service fantastic. Go on the early side in the winter so you can take in the spectacular mountain views! A little hard to find, so give yourself extra time to get there.
Each of the dishes we had were amazing both in terms of presentation and taste. Our waitress was lovely but considering this is a “wine bar”, we were expecting the staff to be more knowledgeable about the wine selections/pairings. The restaurant is within an arts campus and adjacent to the student dining area, so the atmosphere was nice but different from what we expected. During the day, the view would be incredible.
Meals were a disappointment. Under cooked and cold.
The chef made a fabulous plate design, the combination of taste is amazing. The vegateble and food material are fresh. The after-dinner coffee is good as well.
Excellent food. Nice ambiance. Great views. Top notch cocktails.
One the best dinners I’ve had. The pureed califlour with Elk was great.
Server was as very friendly. The special “Elk Loin” was terrible and the server recommended it and said you could it with a spoon which was far from the case. The Bidon tenderloin was good. Would go back again.
We had eloped the day before, spending an entire day shooting photos in epic fun places. This dining experience was equally epic!
One of the best meals we’ve ever had hands down. The food was absolutely outstanding, the flavors complex, fresh and distinctive - and they looked as good as they tasted.
Sarah was our server, she and the chef were terrific and made the evening very special for us.
Everything was very good and we will happily go again. Service was attentive but not intrusive.
A LOVELY MEAL WITH WARM FRIENDLY SERVICE. Enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and spectacular view.
My compliments to the chef on my sturgeon dish. Superb!
My only criticism might be the decor was a tad spartan (but still pleasant)
We have eaten at Three Ravens on a number of occasions. The overall quality of the experience is consistently high. The greeting is friendly, the serving staff are engaging without being intrusive, and the food variety, quality and presentation are excellent. Well deserving of repeat visits.
I would recommend Three Ravens to celebrate a special occasion
Great food and experience!
THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. THE AMBIANCE WAS COLD AND STARK. IT LACKS WARMTH WHICH SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTS THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE.
We were there for the New Years Eve dinner and it was amazing! Our waiter was friendly and attentive, huge wine list to choose from, and the 6 course meal was fantastic. The portion sizes were perfect and there was enough choices that allowed one to choose something a little more adventurous if they wanted.
All in all, we had a great time and will be back on our next Banff trip.
Very innovative, great service, super friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The food and service were great. However I was expecting a cozy, upscale restaurant with a great view. Even though there were only a couple other tables in the restaurant, the restaurant shared a space with a cafeteria I.e. 100’s of people talking, dishes clinking, unnecessary noise. Second, the restaurant sells itself on the view which during the day may be nice but at night due to sharing the space and the high beam lighting the only view from the windows you will see is your reflection. Food & Service great. Ambiance & atmosphere not worth the price at all.
Excellent food and wine Atmosphere is very modern and sophisticated but lacks warmth Overall Excellent
Three is us enjoyed Christmas dinner at the Three Ravens. Excellent food (Beef Tenderloin and Elk) and the complimentary eggnog drink was the best eggnog any of us had ever had. The service was outstanding. My only disappointment was the ambience. It’s a little stark and the view to the cafeteria area isn’t very appealing. In the summer you’d be able to enjoy the mountain view which I’m sure is outstanding.
The appetizers were pretty bad. My meal, the beef tenderloin, was good but my husband's duck was horrible. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Really disappointing. Waitress spoke annoyingly low and we couldn’t understand half of what she said. She missed giving one of us a plate for appetizers and then missed taking away one of our plates when the main came. Food was over seasoned with too many ingredients. The 16oz pork chop actually came to about 2oz once all the fat was trimmed off. Ambiance is cold and restaurant is way too bright. None of the four of us enjoyed our meal. Will jot be returning.
Delicious food, server Violet was knowledgeable, pleasant and very efficient. A great experience.
This is a fantastic restaurant with great views of the Bow Valley. It is a bit hard to find - is upstairs in a building on the Banff Center for the Fine Arts grounds - but it is worth finding. Great food and exceptional service. We have been there a number of times and will definitely be returning.
Best restaurant in the Bow Valley.
Amazing food! It is like art on a plate. And it tastes superb. Innovative and unique flavour combinations that work. We keep coming back and food always manages to exceed our expectations.
Everything was fantastic! I have already been recommending Three Ravens to everyone!
Fantastic food; everything on the plate was perfect. Service was quick, friendly, upbeat. Can't wait to go back!
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!
Amazing food and excellent service, well worth a visit!
The service was great and we appreciated the vegan options! Lovely date spot.
The view is incredible and the food was outstanding. My wife has not stopped talking about this place since we left.
Imaginative, quality offering at this restaurant. Excellent for pre-show at Banff Centre. Best view from a dining table in Banff. Will return to this restaurant.
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.
The menu is full of interesting choices. You must have an engaging palate as each dish has numerous textures and flavors in the mix.
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.
