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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
