My boyfriend and I, while not vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free, went for dinner on a Thursday evening around 6:30pm. When we arrived we were one of a handful of people in the restaurant. It soon after became very busy with the restaurant packed, and folks waiting outside. Not sure if they take reservations, but it could be a wise idea. The tables are really close to one another so we felt a bit crowded, but did get over it with a beer.

Our server was really friendly, and efficient, however it appeared as if she could use some help. It appeared as if she was serving the entire restaurant. They may have been short a server that day. Also, it appears as if there is only one terminal to use debit (no credit cards accepted), so we had to wait quite a long time to pay.

The food was very good. As I mentioned, we are not vegan, vegetarian, or gluten free, and really found our meals to be delicious. We had the Nachos first (all items on the menu are for sharing), and they were fantastic! We then had the Mac and Squeeze (also very good). We were too stuffed for dessert, but it looked amazing from what we could see others eating.

We ate here twice during our stay in Banff because it was so delicious and unique. For lunch we had the Nachos which had so many different types of ingredients from beans to vegetables including a few sliced strawberries which tasted amazing! Best I have ever had. So good we had to try dinner menu the next day. The mushroom ravioli had a lovely rich sauce and was melt in your mouth. They also had a full bar. Great find! Highly recommend for those looking for healthy, fresh, unique vegetarian, gluten free and/or vegan.

Food was fresh and the flavors were great. Nachos were cheesy with am amazingly different combination of topping. Quinoa mac and cheese (smoky paprika) was filling and tasty. Staff was super friendly as well. It is a relaxed and casual place to dine, where you get to experience unique flavour combos. Definitely worth repeating.

We went there a little late in the day with another couple, we did have to wait a while for a table for 4, as the restaurant isn't very big. The wait was worth it though, simply marvelous food and plenty of it. We all ordered different menu items and then shared them. If we ever go back to this area, we will definitely return to this restaurant.

This place was all that it was cracked up to be from TripAdvisor Reviews. Best meal we had in Banff- relaxed vibe, amazing food (even if you're not vegetarian you'll love it). We got the mushroom ravioli and 27 ingredient nachos and it was heavenly. I'm a foodie and I don't rave often about food, but nourish stood up to it's reputation. The server we had was somewhat cold but we didn't let that damper the experience.
