“Lovely Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We enjoyed a lovely meal at Luna Blue. Weeknight dining was relaxing and our dinner was excellent.

Appetizers were mussels in a Thai sauce and they were the hit of the day. Moist and perfectly cooked in an amazing sauce that was flavorful and perfecty balanced they were among the best I have ever had. The caesar is a crowd pleaser and was excellent.

Main courses were Pad Thai, and my absolute favorite Smoked Chicken Penne pasta. Chef Daniel smokes the chicken in house and it is to die for. Sundried tomatoes, spinach and fresh grated parm accented and garlic with a light toss of olive oil are heavenly. The Pad Thai is consistently excellent and my husband's "go to" dish on the menu. He always enjoys it as do I.

Service was inobtrusive, friendly, and polite and we felt relaxed and unhurried in a welcoming and serene environment.

The menu provides excellent value and there are options to incorporate gluten free dining in to many of the dishes, a thoughtful consideration that adds flexibility to the menu.

The option to choose a larger or smaller portion of many main course pastas is also excellent.

I can recommoned it as a great spot for couples, and we have dined there with family as well as friends with small children and it has been consistent and excellent.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

it is hard to choose when there are so many other restaurants in the neighbourhood but at the end we dined in Luna Blue.
Great service - lovely athmosphere. The friendly French (from France) waiter took his time to have a little chat with us and he also recommended places for breakfast.
The food itself was delicious. I had the pad Thai and man, it was spicy but delicious!
Prices were also reasonable.

“terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Wonderful family place. Diverse menu, great service, highly recommended. Not too many Canmore places I'd call great values, but this is one.

“Not your ordinary mountain town restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We enjoyed a lovely meal @ Luna Blue on a Monday night in shoulder season. The restaurant had come recommended by friends and did not disappoint. Simple decore and decorations focused on lunar themes and the baby blue color of the room added to ambiance. Asimple, straight forward menu of a handul of salads and pasta dishes spoke of a kitchen with clear focus. We ordered a spinach salad with two different pasta dishes. We both thoroughly enjoyed out meals and unfortunately did not leave room for the handful of tastey sounding desserts. Good food - Good service - Confy decore- reasonable price. Excellent choice.

“Great Italian food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Best Italian food we've had in a long time. Service was so-so. But the food was outstanding. Went for lunch and got the large plate...didn't have to eat anything for supper that day (Wow) and it was really tasty. Try it, you'll like it!
