Great service, great food. Breakfasts were rapid and hearty. Dinner was the main event tho - the Chef's carving was great value.

We have been staying in Canmore for almost a decade – but we didn’t know about Habitat; our loss. It’s tucked away in one of the hotel just off Bow Valley Trail and we only found it because of the wine and food week advertising in Canmore. But now that we have found it we will go back.

Without going into too much detail, we ate there twice: once just my husband and I and the second time we had a dinner with friends. So in a short time between the two dinners and the four of us we tried about 60% of their menu. It is quite amazing that among all those dishes there was not one... More

Really disappointed with everything about my visit here as it had been recommended. Really long wait for food then it turned up cold.

I had the trio of ribs (bison, elk and beef) and I made sure to pass on compliments to the chef. It was FANTASTIC! The seasonal veggies were also done perfectly. The service was excellent, very friendly and personable. I went with my wife and the atmosphere made for a great date night. I would recommend Habitat for any couple... More

I had a delicious breakfast here which included the creamiest scrambled eggs I have had in a long time! The meal also included fruit, toast, bacon and rosti potatoes. Great coffee rounded out the meal! We also had a delicious buffet supper the night before. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the size of the portion of the... More

We recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Habitat. It was our first visit and we were surprised at the quality of the food and the exceptional service. The upscale, modern decor is unique in Canmore where a more rustic feel prevails. We shared chateaubriand which was outstanding. Recommend for a special dinner.

My husband loved his Arctic Char dish, it was amazing! However my Vegan spaghetti squash with Garam Masala and coconut was so salty I couldn't eat it. My daughter didn't care for her tortellini and scallops. The pasta was not al dente, it was closer to crunchy and had very little flavor. Very unfortunate to have left such an expensive... More
