Good food and wine, relaxed but professional service

Imaginative selection of local food, beer and wine plus some wine from further afield. Busy but nice atmosphere. We ate there twice in a week one evening was a bit boisterous but the restauarnt handled that with skill and good humour. Good locatio.n

Just had one of the best suppers I have ever had. Literally, amazing! The service was fantastic, and the food was exquisite. My brother had the short ribs and mashed potatoes best he has ever had. My mom had some maple chicken that was the best cooked chicken she has ever had. Beautiful plate presentation on her dish. I went... More

We were at Kicking Horse for four nights, luckily we tried this place on the first night so we had time to go back again. Beautifully cooked and presented, tasty and hearty, a true mountain gem. Service was friendly and prompt. Cocktails were good, but same cocktail was completely different on the second visit!

Great food, excellent service, and the owner is former Olympian and world cup downhill skier Felix Belczyk (sorry if I didn't spell this right, Felix!). The Copper Horse hotel is lovely, and Cork's is just downstairs. Try the Bourbon Mojito, made with Canadian Maple syrup, mint and fine whiskey. You're going to love this place!

Enjoyed the food here and was the best place to eat during the week in Kicking horse. They do an early menu from 5 - 6 of which the ribs were excellent although the fondue was not to the same standard as their other food. The service was good and cocktails ideal. The environment is good and it always seems... More

Had a good meal here. Liked the variety on the menu especially the Elk Linguini. Very brave to do this dish as elk can be tough. Presentation was good. Wine selection is limited but we found our favorite. The Date dessert was fabulous. Prices were reasonable.

We made reservations for 7 a few days before we arrived at Kicking Horse. When we showed up, they had no record of our reservation and there was a private function. They managed to find a table to accomodate us quite quickly. The service and food was so absurdly slow, especially since we had 3 hungry young children with us,... More

Food was delicious but service was bit slow. Server was alone and was not always attentive to our needs.I had one of the bison specialities which was very good. Prices are high but it is the nicest restaurant in kicking horse. Some of the friends I was with did consider the portions small.
