Last time I was in Banff a few years ago, I visited this restaurant and was very impressed. Their location changed to another street downtown Banff and it is still one of my favourite restauants to go to. My husband and I are not vegetarians. We just enjoy good food. Their dishes are innovative and delicious. The portions are very... More

We had dinner here during our visit to Banff. The food was really creative and tasty. The Nachos with 27 ingredients were a taste adventure. The concept is very interesting, as all main dishes are designed to be shared. Unfortunately there were some flaws, which negatively impacted the overall impression. The dishes are meant to be served each at a... More

We wanted a hot, gluten free ,vegan meal we could eat on the way out of town. Very glad we decided to look in on Nourish to see if they had takeout, because we were indeed able to order a takeout Mac n Cheese dish that was more than adequate in amount and very delicious. Would definitely return, although the... More

Had a very nice lunch at Nourish in Banff. We were not particularly looking for a vegetarian restaurant but we came across Noursih and it looked nice, was fairly busy and had an interesting menu. I had a very good macaroni and cheese - it was really delicious with great quinoa pasta. My wife had a grilled pear and brie... More

We chose to try this after our vegetarian daughter recommended it. Their outgoing phone message says they only take reservations for six or over. Their entrance way has some signs about max number allowed in the area and the rest have to wait outside. It seemed a little odd. Ten minutes or so to get a table. Our waitress was... More

Nourish is going to be closed within a year. That's what we predict based on the 12 minutes we spent sitting at the bar waiting to eat lunch on holiday Monday of the Thanksgiving long weekend. Do yourself a favour and stop reading all of the 5 star reviews convincing yourself to eat here. Read the truth about how bland... More

My husand and I are both vegetarians and always have been. We were quite disappointed with Nourish - the food that was put together had strange concoctions and the ingredients didnt really go together very well. Example, their Nachos with 27 ingredients (no other like it in the galaxy they say), (with strawberries + many other random ingredients) - it... More

Unfortunately we did not enjoy the entire meal. The first dish served (King Kong Noodles) was absolutely delicious. The second dish was their signature Lasagne which had spent too long in the oven and had an 1/8" burnt bottom which flavored the whole dish and the noodles were very overcooked. We were asked how we enjoyed our first dish but... More
