For being in an area that everywhere you turn is a million-dollar view, you would expect the staff to be more personable. We waited at the "please wait to be seated" sign for approximately five minutes, even though staff members looked us straight in the eyes. There were 3 tables on the left side of the patio and we asked... More

After walking past on The Wood and seeing the number of people on the patio, I figured this was a good indication that it was worth eating at, so I went there for breakfast the very next morning. I was not disappointed. Bacon, eggs, hashbrowns and toast were satifying for a mid sized appetite but may not fill a big... More

We enjoyed lunch on this patio. Far enough from the street to be quiet and open enough to enjoy the fresh air and the view.

I arrived in Canmore with hopes of having dinner on a patio, after driving by the wood and seeing many people eating their dinner I decided to try out the Wood. Once I walked into the restaurant I spoke to the hostess Catherine and asked if I could sit on the patio with my two lady friends. She aggressively told... More

Sever was friendly, had a pretty good steak, don't remember what my girlfriend had, but she enjoyed it as well. Came here because Grizzly Paw was packed out of the door. Like the interior quite a bit and it was fairly quiet for a saturday night.

Walking along Canmore and we came across what we thought was a little gem. Beautiful patio with a fantastic view. We joined the queue and was left waiting for 20-30 minutes. A number of tables were free but not cleared and nobody acknowledged us. Eventually a staff member approached and offered us a table adjacent to the ever growing queue.... More

We had booked a table for 7.30pm on a Saturday night. When we arrived, they had forgotten about our reservation and we had to wait for a table. No problem, mistakes happen and we were happy to have a drink and browse the menu. When our server arrived she was the rudest person I had ever dealt with, the drinks... More

3 of us ordered the eggs Benedict and it was very yummy, the eggs were cooked medium poached just like we ordered with peameal bacon, and the fresh cooked hash browns were not dried out like most restaurants and the side of fruit with orange, pineapple and melon was very nice. The Rancheros Huevos (sorry may not be spelled right)... More

Great location with great views. Service was quite poor. One guy was busy doing nothing much at all. Another woman was friendly and at least her service was better. Food was good, generous serves and full of flavour. Great selection of drinks. Good enough way to end our 3 day visit to Canmore.

Sat on the patio, the view was gorgeous. We went for lunch and had a sandwich and burger. The food was fair and service was on the slow side. But we'd still recommend it for the beautiful and relaxing setting.
