“Went back twice”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We normally don't each at the same restaurant twice when traveling but did this time. Apparently, the Raven hasn't been open too long but we thought the food was outstanding. We walked in both nights around 6pm and were seated immediately. By 6:30 there was a wait.

The menu has interesting choices including a 6 item chef's tasting entrée. The starters, the salads, the entree's and deserts were all unique and well prepared. The price is on the high side but very reasonable for find dining in Jasper.

“Very nice new choice”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Not in tourbooks as it opened this year but certainly is a top-5 choice in Jasper. Fairly upscale and priced accordingly (but not crazy and worth it). Nice presentation, exciting menu (looks like it has a slight german/jewish theme with nouveau versions of Spaetzle and brisket on the menu). In the end the flavors and creativity don't meet the menu's promise.

“Very Very Good.”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We walked into this restaurant this evening at around 6:30PM and didn't except to be able to find a seat, but were pleasantly surprised. The room is cozy and the ambiance is excellent, service is knowledgeable and friendly. We started with calamari and brie appetizers, both were very good although the brie portion wasn't overly generous. Entrees were both to die for - fresh pasta perfectly cooked with a tomato ragout and shrimp & bacon, and melt-in-your-mouth halibut with peas and mashed potatoes that was equally satisfying. Total bill with drinks but no alcohol was ~$80 all-in before tip, which we felt was very reasonable for the quality of the experience. Highly recommended, we could go again tomorrow night!

“An amazing dining experience!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We stayed in Jasper for five nights and ate at the Raven Bistro three nights out of the five. Every single meal there was outstanding. Very high quality and beautifully presented. The service is courteous and professional.The ambiance is perfect.
Our only disappointment was the two dinners we did not have at the Raven Bistro.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

We stayed in Jasper for 2 nights and ate here on both nights as we both really enjoyed the food plus it lived up to previous trip advisor reviews.Service was very friendly and staff took time to explain the dishes as well as advising me what contained cream/milk ( as I am lactose intolerant). Salmon chowder, house salad, steak,curried vegetable strudel were all excellent and would definitely recommend eating here. House wine was also lovely and would recommend booking a table especially on a Friday and Saturday ( when we were there) as it was very busy on both nights.
