Hands down the best restaurant in Canmore. Quality and consistency across the menu! Excellent value for 5 star dining. Every item on the menu is elevated to a creatively unique and wonderful flavour profile.

Richard (Owner) and his Mum are the consummate hosts. We have always had great service here and the food has never been anything but excellent. Always a relaxed evening and the time flies by. Happy to see they are now open for lunch on Sat/Sun. Will return again.

Another one of my top 5 fabulous places to eat in Canmore. Chef Richard's signature ribs are marinated for 3 days and come off the bone like butter. Yum! Everything on the menu is delicious. Try the lamb! Beautiful ambient atmosphere with exquisite service. Highly recommended.

This is a place for special events. It is expensive, but the food is good as is the service. The menu is varied and would meet most people's tastes.

Service overall was quite attentive. As for the quality of the ingredients, I expected more. The flavourings of the jerk ribs were somewhat overpowering and unbalanced compared to others I've had. Expensive for what it is.

Our vacation had just started and we decided to walk through downtown Canmore to find a place to eat. We wanted to try someplace new, and since it was a beautiful evening, we wanted to sit on a patio. So we explored.

This place lived up to its billings and then some. Every entree and each of the sides was inventive and well prepared. Pricey for Canmore, but still an excellent value for what you get. Staff very attentive. Only gripe-- the wine pours were below standard.
