A lovely dining experience. The only caveat would be due to allergies, the kitchen simply removed certain things from the entree plate and didn't offer to compensate with an alternative recipe for the sauce or beef - they just added more vegetables, which didn't really seem fair for the value of the meal.

Went here for our anniversary dinner for a late reservation at 9pm and we had the place almost entirely to ourselves. Our waitress, Katie, was amazing, very funny and attentive. The food was awesome and for what you get the price is reasonable. Would 100% recommend. Try going when it’s daylight too so you can enjoy being surrounded by mountains

We thoroughly enjoyed the view; however, ambiance was lacking. It felt like we were eating in a large dining college hall. Décor was okay... food, I realize - though very fresh - served in too large a portion. Not something I'd expect from such a restaurant. The added treats during meal were appreciated.

Hi Maria, thank you for your review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests.

Vistas offer market-style menu and buffet dining seating and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Service - Friendly, but not professional. Our specific server was not well trained at all, and forgot many promised things.
Cocktails - were interesting to read about, but terrible to taste!
Wine - We picked bad wines (by the glass) - but one of them was recommended by our server. Very disappointing with the food.

FOOD - WAS THE SAVING GRACE! Good selection on menu, interesting combinations, beautiful to look at and contemplate, and supper complex and interesting (and successful) flavour combinations.
The chef is the reason for the 4 stars - Made our time there enjoyable! We recommend this place for the food and the setting.

The service was really exceptional; it was our fifth anniversary and we felt that we were treated very well. Our appetizer was okay but nothing exceptional (it was a variant on a Caesar Salad) and our main (pork chop) was delicious. The view was breathtaking, but the main issue was the restaurant itself decor was did not overly impress. It was comfortable but felt a bit sterile / cafeteria-ish. Overall would recommend and would consider going back.

Enjoyed an outstanding dinner on our visit to Banff. Three Ravens has a unique menu offering food for a variety of palates. Our server Lottie was exceptional and very attentive. She ably answered all of our questions and attended to our dining needs. As the only vegetarian in our foursome, I savored the variety of vegetables and spices. For dinner I enjoyed the Organic Alberta Red Rife Beetroot Fettuccini with Zucchini, Golden Beet Purée, Sautéed Swiss Chard, Charred Broxburn Tomatoes, Roasted Cipollini Onion. The others in my party ate the salmon, halibut and beef tenderloin, all distinctly prepared. We started our meals with salads both beautiful, fresh and oh, so delicious, but unfortunately were too full for dessert. Highly recommend the restaurant both for the food, but also the wonderful views!

Great food but the service did not meet the quality of food. Our server apologized and stated she typically does not work in that part of the restaurant when I needed to coach her on how to use a corkscrew. She was very pleasant and hard working so I’m not sure why management placed her in the dining room without sufficient training? It appeared the servers where doing everything from bussing to sommelier. Once again I think this would be an overall amazing dining experience with proper leadership and management.

Service was too slow. It took just under two hours for our table of 2 to have dinner. We’d see our server every 15-20 minutes so ordering drinks and paying the bill resulted in unnecessarily long waits. We skipped desert simply because we didn’t want to wait any longer. Fewer than half the tables were seated during our dinner so I can’t imagine how much longer it would take on a busy night.

My husband and I were incredibly disappointed with this restaurant. To start, the restaurant itself is oddly situated. It shares a large room with another buffet style restaurant, and has wall partitions to separate it from the buffet. The noise from the buffet was distracting and took away from the beautiful view that the restaurant provides.
Service was subpar. Our water glasses were never refilled, took a long time for dishes to be cleared, and our server didn’t check on us until the end of our meals. I may have understood, had the place been busy, but it was only half full, and they were well staffed that night. I realize that may sound picky, but this is supposed to be a fine dining restaurant, so I am applying fine dining standards.
The food was not good. We split a game tartar to start, and for mains, my husband had the beef tenderloin, and I had the elf rack. While the protein portion of all three dishes was good (the tartar on its own was excellent), the accompaniments for all three plates were oddly flavoured choices that ruined the overall plate. The best example I can give of this was the tartar that was accompanied by a savoury semifreddo. To put it bluntly, it was gross. Ice cream and tartar do not go well together. The plating of the dishes was beautiful, however, that effort is for nothing when the food doesn’t taste good. The kitchen should spend less time on presentation and more on finding better flavour combinations.
I’m dumbfounded by the high reviews that this restaurant has gotten. The only thing I can think of is that the patrons are enchanted by the view and the beautiful plating, and don’t focus on the actual taste of the food.
I would never recommend this place. There are so many better options to choose from between Banff and Canmore. This place was a waste of time and money.

Nice location but very hard to find - no signage for parking. Room is adjacent to a cafeteria/buffet that is very loud. View is great after sunset otherwise staring into the screens. Food was delicious but portions were small for price. Beer selection limited but wine ok. Was a little hard to get attention of server.
