The spectacular setting is matched by outstanding food. Great service from staff who seem happy to be there and make good recommendations. The mushroom soup and Bison were perfect, leaving no room for desert unfortunately. This is a staple restaurant for us anytime we are in Banff. Rivals with the best of Toronto and Vancouver.
Delicious food with very generous portions and beautiful vista of Banff. Only odd thing was that the server has to rotate out and another server took his place. Both did an excellent job, but the continuity of service was interrupted. There could be something I’m not aware of in Canadian working regulations, but nonetheless it was odd. I would still highly recommend and done there again next time I’m in Banff.
We have dined at Three Ravens a number of times. The food is consistently excellent. The service has always been great, with very friendly servers. The views of the Bow Valley are spectacular, no matter what time of year.
Amazing food . Had the most wonderful evening there , and the service was really really good.
Excellent food, beautiful view
Very disappointing execution. Both of our meals were over/under cooked. At the price point, and location we were expecting lots more.
As usual this was a delightful place for dinner before the show. The staff are very conscious that there are time restraints and made sure we were out in time for our short walk to the theatre.
The best kept secret in Banff not to mention best value for Michelin star quality cuisine.
Outstanding meal!!! Service was the best we've experienced in a long time! Best food I've tasted in a long time! Thank you!!!
Great Experience! Definitely would recommend to everyone :)
excellent. exceeded expectations in every way. The service and ambiance is exquisite, formal but not too formal dining setting, gorgeous view of sulfur mountain and Banff. Softly played classy swing music and blues over the course of the meal. servers were attentive and non-intrusive. food quality was 10/10. everything tasted fantastic and fresh. I had a very difficult time choosing from a relatively small menu, which says something. Will definitely be returning soon. Pricey, but worth it. could have had a larger cocktail menu, but made up for it with the wine list and pairings available on the menu.
Wonderful meal enjoying spectacular view! The mushroom soup was flavorful and amazing to enjoy .
We heard that the food and view were out of this world, but we found neither. The food was good, but not great, and the "view" was nothing but office/school buildings. The food and drinks were expensive, but we knew to expect that. The restaurant is fairly modern, and was significantly overly lit which did nothing for the ambiance. Definitely not the romantic spot we were hoping for, which was very disappointing. One positive note was the outstanding service. I'm glad we tried it out, but we will not be back!
The food was delicious, the wine pairing wasn't great as in some cases the wine pairing was set to pair with a selection of 3 food types, so it wasn't a good match, except for the main course. Also the atmosphere wasn't great as you're in a section of a large hall, used for as a buffet. The views are spectacular of course. Overall a good experience.
Very difficult to find the restaurant. It is not at the address indicated - should say it is in the Sally Borden building. It was much more casual than anticipated and the prices were very high. Mushroom soup was good.
We were so impressed by both the stunning view and unique food and its creative presentations! Our amazing server Lindsay made our anniversary dinner more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend to our foodie friends!
The food was amazing n would highly recommend this place to have a fantastic meal
An evening with friends before watching a beautiful contemporary ballet. Maitre D was very helpful in adding two to our table on a busy night. Food was fantastic and service / ambiance first class. Highly recommended.
Three Ravens offers fantastic food in a very unique setting! My husband and I rolled into town after a long delayed flight and the staff were very helpful to allow us to push our reservation back by an hour so that we could still experience this little gem. The food and service were fantastic and we will definitely recommend/return!
Dined here for a birthday dinner on Sunday, January 28th and had a great time! Greeted at the door and seated promptly, got our pick of the tables. Lindsey was our server and she was superb! She guided us through the menu while still catering to our needs/preferences. I had the beef, boyfriend had the sablefish, both excellent in taste, presentation, and overall quality. For dessert, she included a bright sparkler candle for my birthday and made it so so special. She really made the whole experience!
We have dined at the Three Ravens on a number of occasions, and have found them to be consistently delightful experiences. We were warmly greeted, the meal appealed to the eyes, nose and tongue, and our waitress knew the right balance of engagement without intrusion.
One of the best meals we’ve ever had. We would recommend this place anytime.
Outstanding view, friendly & attentive service, generous portions for this type of cuisine, tasty and creative. Enjoyed the extras such as rolls with different types of butter, vouches, and three types of chocolate presented with the bill.
High ratings and reviews and the promise of fine dining took us there for a family bonding evening.
The food presentation/ appearance was lovely.
The portion size of fish was minuscule, with an over abundance of greens: the issue is the flavour combinations which were confusing to the palate and very unappealing.
Radish in the pineapple salsa with Sablefish - terrible combination.
Savoy cabbage and pineapple salsa with pork: again, very lovely thought but didn’t translate into anything tantalizing. The pork belly piece was a lump of pure fat.
The duck terrine - beautifully presented.
Truffle spread - not good for terrine period! lemon curd out of rind - bitter more than lemony.
The pickled grapes were way too sour.
And the mustard was the only taste that paired with the dish.
Regret we cannot recommend. The meat was excellent, The seafood not so good very bland. The service was ok not great felt like it was a training school. It was a slow night for the restaurant only 3 or 4 tables . Kitchen staff very Loud extremely poor language carried to tables. This is not acceptable in any dining establishment !! . When I asked to speak to a manager or owner was advised no manager on site I was given his cellphone but no answer and no call back. Advised there was no owner as it was government owned. We went back to the Fairmont for desert was excellent . Do not normally leave any poor feedback but felt we had too here. This was worst anniversary dining experience we have had in years.
We normally love Three Ravens and have been dining here for a few years. This’s review relates specifically to the New Years Eve 2017 Dinner Prix Fixe menu. We were incredibly disappointed and have reconsidered whether we will ever recommend this resto to others.
To summarize, the items were cold, lacked effort, overly game-heavy, and felt "dialled-in" by the kitchen. For $120.00 per person, I could have eaten much better elsewhere. Please bear with me as I go through the menu.
We added the $45.00 pp wine pairing which was good.
The amuse-bouche was a dense, dry piece of sturgeon fish with very fishy and overpowering caviar on top.
My first course of mushroom soup was good. My fiancé's First course of sablefish was cold, slightly undercooked and lacked flavour.
For second course, my squash dish was good but lukewarm. My fiancé ordered the cold chicken and duck terrine, which was overly dense and over-salted.
For the main, my fiancé's Arctic char was bland, dry, and rubbery. My vegetarian course of grilled tofu was a refrigerator-cold piece of tofu atop very gooey black rice. The smashed potato accompaniments were over salted and so tough they were difficult to chew. Thumbs down.
Dessert was also disappointing. The chocolate cake was bone dry and dull, and the pumpkin bundt cake turned out to be oily mini muffins.
The last insult was an automatic gratuity of $60.00 being added onto our bill. Remember that this was a prix fixe menu for food and drink. No wine pairings were selected by a sommelier for us nor were the courses crafted and romanced by the servers. And we were a table of 2.
I don't know if they were going to be short on kitchen staff for NYE, or if they simply prepped early in the day, but the food was in no way made fresh nor was it worth the $120.00 price tag. I've given them two stars because our server was so nice.
Please do better, Three Ravens - we really want to go back and have been recommending you to friends for years.
Lovely views and great service. Very expensive. Nice ambience and comfortable surroundings.
One of the best dinners we’ve had. Terrific service, what would have been a stunning view had it not been in the middle of a snowstorm and incredibly complex, yet perfectly crafted meals. Not cheap but well worth the expense to experience a menu like that. A number of people have mentioned the lighting and/or ambiance - it’s not cozy and the lighting could be more appealing but the overall modern aesthetic is what it is and compliments the food.
We were in Banff for a family ski vacation and ate out every night. Dinner at Three Ravens was by far the best meal that we had. The entrees were very creative and combined several flavors and spices in the sauces. The presentation of the food was superb! It was a great find and we highly recommend eating at Three Ravens if you are a foodie or just want outstanding food!
Honestly the food was delicious but the fact that their was no parking and we had to walk quite far to even get to the elevator. I was not impressed with and the restaurant is very plain not anything extraordinary. The view was alright although it was night so that may have made a huge difference. I would personally not go to dinner here again and as it was our first date together as a couple that we were saving it was disappointing.
We had a fabulous dinner at this elegant secluded restaurant. They have a nice wine menu and tasting portions are an option so we were able to sample a nice selection of wine. The food ranked in my top 5 for 2017 and our best in Banff. Really delicious. Great staff as well. Highly recommend.
Excellent food and service, only complaints are that the restaurant was a bit chilly and staff was unprepared for us when we arrived 5-10 minutes early for our reservation.
Excellent food, creative and beautiful on the plate! There was an extreme lack of ambiance, however, which is something you would hope for when making an evening of dinner out. The restaurant could use a lot more warmth ... a modern fireplace in the middle ... something! Because of the surrounding buildings, you feel as tho you are sampling food prepared in a culinary institute and in their cafeteria. Otherwise, a delicious dining experience for our party of four foodies!
It is very hard to find restaurants that can accommodate the dietary needs of my wife. We can usually find either gluten free or dairy free, Three Ravens had them both! The greeting, the place, the ambience, attention and service was unbelievable! Chloe was our server and she did and splindid job making suggestions and explaning the ingredients of each plate! The food was amazing, the plates remained in their escence without changes needed to be done to accommodate the dietary needs. The dessert! There is dessert GF, DF! We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary in Canada and this restaurant really impressed us, it made our whole celebration very special! It was the cherry on top of the sundae! We recommend it blind folded, no doubts!!! Whenever we are back we will go back to Three Ravens and enjoy a fabulous dinner! Thank you so so much! Awesome experience! We will never forget!!
EXCELLENT service. Great Presentation. A unique location. Will have to come back in the summer during daylight hours to enjoy the view.
We quite enjoyed our experience. They even did a special dessert for us because it was our anniversary. I think they have some work to do on making the place feel more up scale. The food however was fantastic, incredible really.
Outstanding food and service in an ideal location for a date
Fantastic food and service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great service, creative food combinations and very yummy!
