Breakfast-ed in Cranbrook, at OBistro. The server was welcoming and took our order, then went onto her mobile phone. a long wait ensued before coffees came, then she was back on the phone. Very long wait and were just about to leave when our breakfast arrived. No tip for that girl !! Can I suggest attending a customer awareness course,... More

The food was excellent. Smoked salmon scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, bacon & fresh fruit. The service was friendly. The wait was reasonable to prepare such fresh delicious food. Will definitely return.

We went in for breakfast, the staff were welcoming and took our order. Coffees arived, long wait, coffees refilled, staff on mobile for long time after 20 mins the breakfast arrived but without the juice. It was only yoghurt fruit and toast. Sorry but we will not be returning. Poor service.

This was a spur-of-the moment lunch stop for us, but we "reclined and dined"! O Bistro is a great place to have a deliciously prepared and artfully served French meal complete with an enticing choice of wine. We had a perfect French Bordeaux that we tracked down in a local liquor store so we could take three bottles home. Tables... More

I would've preferred to contact the restaurant manager/executive chef directly regarding this, but the website doesn't seem to be functioning. We dined on Sunday Sept 21 (brunch) and were beyond disappointed with our experience. Not only was the service extremely slow, but the omelettes we ordered were completely flavorless. Definitely not worth the money. Servers didn't engage or seem interested... More

We went as a group of six for breakfast here before leaving Canmore. The server was slow to greet us, but we're happy we didn't bail. They made classic dishes but elevated them a little. I have the apple and brie crepe. Yum! My only complains is the the servings could have been a touch bigger, especially for the men,... More

I lunch here with friends, coworkers, and family on a regular basis. It's a small eatery on Main St. The chicken mushroom crepes are one of my regular go-tos, the salads are wonderful, and the specials are usually great. Service can range to poor to great but is always friendly (which often makes up for poor in my book).

We had 4 entrees, all pretty ordinary and not worth the high prices. We mentioned this when we were paying the bill and the waiter and ? owner told us the chef had walked out 3 days earlier. We had a nice evening but it was definitely not worth the high prices...the lobster ravioli was extremely salty, the roast chicken... More
