We came here on a Saturday night and even though there was no line up to get in, we waited 5 minutes to be seated. That should have been our first clue of what was in store for us. It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive and I got my starter at the same time as the entree.... More

Its good, the food is good, the service is never excellent. the place is always very busy and you always have to wait, sometimes for longer than what should be normal, its almost like they don't have enough staff to keep up with the volume, which is pretty common in a place like Canmore. What keeps me coming back is... More

I was expecting better food and service. No Consistency. Start with the drinks. The same drink was served with different ingredients each time. I ordered soup which I end up having a purée and my steak was dry. Table next to us was complaining food being late. Seemed like they had less staff to serve. I don't recommend to anyone... More

We were touring a German exchange student through parts of Albert and B.C. and included Canmore in that trip (a wise choice). When looking for a restaruant for lunch, we were intriqued by the welcoming patio of the Wood Restaurant and there we went. The food was "top notch" and the service matched it. The price was reasonable. We will... More

Good basic lunch in a nice atmosphere. Nice lunch specials.With several inches of snow we couldn't travel far and this was one of the nicer and upscale spots we found in the business district.

We stopped here on our way to Banff, ready to try a local eatery. Service was a little slow. The crispy ribs appetizer was a plus. Ordered their soup of the day, which was creamy cauliflower, cheese and mushroom soup. I had to send it back. Very unappetizing, gray, blended (no texture or taste) and not hot. Ended up sharing...

We have eaten here many times, the wait was long and the food was okay not as good as in the past.The outside patio heaters didn't work which was a let down as there were so many people trying to get a table and had to wait outside!The staff weren't very friendly and the service was very slow.Probably won't return...

Took more than 45 minutes to get food. Kids were restless. Didn't refill water. Finally had to ask where the food was. Seemed like there weren't enough servers for the number of tables. Wouldn't come back.

Was in town for my birthday. My wife and I thought this would be a great place to go and relax, nothing too fancy that we would have to dress up. the atmosphere was good. However I found the service very disorganized, there was no host and we had to wait for a table when it was clearly half full... More
