“in the country of steaks....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

It is a wonderful surprise to find a Vegetarian Restaurant in the Country of steak, buffalo, elk or moose !!!! the service is efficient and helpful in suggesting the different possibilities offered by the menu! The portions are enormous so it is better the have half portion! Sometime the complexity of the mixture of the ingredients is high! It could be better to prepare simple dishes without such a mixture of flavors and taste! The chef has a great creativity in mixing different aromas and components!! And a glass of wine is highly suggested !

“Nourish Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was good value and excellent food. Only get 1/2 portions as they are very large. The service was friendly and very helpful. We took home a doggy bag as we had so much left over.

“A party in your mouth!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a vegetarian oasis in carnivore central! Love the eclectic and quaint atmosphere and the 'sharing' concept is a must as the menu is star studded- you want to try everything!!! Not to mention, Great charismatic staff provided insight and some entertinment! I was a 'nourish' virgin, but now, it is officially my 'happy' place in Banff!

“Symphony in your mouth.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

I've been going to Nourish for a few years now, still to this day it's my favourite restaurant in town (and I'm a meat eater). Always get the nachos to start (original or the hickory) and go from there. Like the staff will tell you, the portions are fairly big, so I suggest ordering multiple dishes and sharing them amongst friends and company. Desserts are fantastic as well. Just tried the raspberry creme brûlée cheesecake... And I have nothing, but amazing things to say. Try it for yourself. Thanks to Mark, Heather and the rest of the staff for your hospitality!!! We'll see you soon!!!

“Dreamy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

I live in Calgary and have been to nourish 3 times already this year. Every time we have international visitors it is a a must on our list of things to do and every guest has been equally impressed so far.

Beautifully presented, fresh, healthy and delicious vegetarian food (I am a meat eater usually) with very friendly staff and owner. Having your meal served on a 'bed of greens' here is more like a rainbow including orange, red, purple etc.

Favorite dishes so far: classic nachos (a must!!), the house curry and the spanakopita. I can't wait to go back to try more.
