Tucked away in the Banff Center, it is not easy to find. However, our meal and service made it worth the search. It is pricey and there are better values in Banff. But if you want to escape the tourists and the hotel faire, this is an excellent choice. BTW, the view is very nice.

Went here for our first anniversary. Incredibly creative mix of colors and flavors with the best service. A dinner with a view you won’t get elsewhere in Banff.

It was our first time at Three Ravens, we loved it and we will return!

The cuisine was excellent, the presentation was excellent and our servers, Dallas and Daniel were very knowledgable about both the wine menu and the dinner menu.

First class dining at a very reasonable price.

The attempt to be creative with the food doesn’t work. None of our dishes worked. Hodgepodge of ingredients assembled in ways that just didn’t make sense (for example the romaine salad with a very sweet dressing and 5 thick cut slices of squash, and peas and soy beans, and pea shoots and saffron threads, and rice noodles, a confusing mess). Form over function - even the utensils are pretty and useless, they slip into the food between bites. Really wanted to like it because the Centre is so cool and the view is amazing and the service is so well-intended.

Sadly, I wish I had not eaten here.

Great view, and a very interesting menu. Very much Pinterest focused with beautiful presentations. Parking is a bit of a challenge. It's just that one section down in front, below, the restaurant. For those with disabilities be prepared for a fairly long walk to the restaurant with ramps, curbs, and an elevator.

Wow!
The views! The food! A wonderful and delicious evening. The accompanying vegetables and bacon bits that came with the steak dinner were incredible. Also, dessert... huckleberry cheesecake...fab.
Wine was delicious and a great value.
We loved our evening! Bravo.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our meals were flavorful and the presentation was beautiful. Of course the view was amazing and the waiter, Jonathan, made our celebration even more special.

Food was good but service could of been better. We had a bottle of wine and our waiter never returned to our table to refill our glasses for us nor did he refill our water or gave us much attention. Had high expectations but was disappointed. Overall it was an okay experience.

With nothing but glass everywhere, it was just too hot in the dining room. The restaurant had a tour group in the room and they were extremely noisy. Our server was outstanding, but the food was covered with junk, from endame to mango the bison chop could have stood on it's own without all the crap on my plate. I don't know how to ruin a romaine lettuce salad, but again, too many ingredients. Tell the chef to tone it down and get back to basics. Less is more!

Food and wine were very good. Our server was inattentive and would disappear at times. We waited for what seemed like forever just to pay our bill!

. Lots of large windows with beautiful views. Menu is very creative but in my opinion missing something to connect all the unusual pairings of the dishes. A+ for creativity but B- on execution. Service good.

We are on a cross Canada road trip and have three nights in Banff. We made reservations here and don't regret it for a second. It was difficult to find, but after asking directions next door, we found the elevator to the restaurant. Parking was non-existent for a bit, but someone was pulling out of one of the nearby spaces after 10 minutes or so. The food and presentation were first rate. We started with an amuse bouche of salmon tartare with balsamic micro greens and it was tasty. My wife had the elk rack and was delighted. I had the pork belly and rabbit leg served was a nice reduction. The pork stole the show as the rabbit really needed the reduction. The location was beautiful, but there are no bad views in Banff. Recommendation - go there. You will not be disappointed.

Our waitress Amy was great. The perfect mix of competence and friendliness.
The food and service were great overall however the Creme brûlée was not good. The texture was awful and surprising with the other food being so good. However, we were not charged for it so that was good.
The view was also fantastic.
