We experienced great service from a very friendly server named Sully, we think he was from Australia. He was very personable, knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. We will for sure visit the Wood again. Ryan, Amber and Jack

We recently visited family in Canmore on a beautifully warm sunny day in May. The Woods deck was our destination choice for lunch. As expected, it was busy but we were seated and orders taken quickly. Our food arrived promptly and our sandwich breads looked very appealing! I discovered though that as a base for my grilled veggie sandwich it... More

Was visiting friends in Canmore and they took us to the wood. We had an amazing experience with quick service and a Friendly smile. Would strongly recommend Justin's Bellini's and sitting in lattik's section. Lattik provided countless laughs and ensured our drinks were always roped up. Although I don't live in the bow valley I would recommend this venue to... More

We stopped in after a little hike in the mountains, we were a group of 6 including 2 little ones. Great place for a family, our server was awesome with the kids and even wiped down the high chair in front of us which was a nice touch for sure. Her product knowledge was very evident and her recommendation of... More

Sat outside and enjoyed the nightly special for hors d'ouvres and some cocktails. The scenery was beautiful. Snow capped mountains in every direction.

Situated on a corner junction with a large open deck to the front with great views over the mountains. We chose to eat inside, shown straight to our table and had the great Canadian welcome to their establishment. The service was well worth the 20% tip and wasn't half bad either, a good experience overall and a fair price.
