“Great Food!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

Villa Caruso is located on the far west end of the main strip in Jasper. The restaurant is located on the second floor (but accessed from the main street level) with a nice view of the valley that Jasper is located in.

The restaurant is very nicely appointed. In the far end is a raised area with tables that has a nice view of the surrounding area but generally any area in the restaurant seems to have good seating. The food is great (at least what we ordered)! My wife had the moussaka and had nothing but good things to say about it. I had the Bison sirloin and was equally impressed. What blew us away was the escargot. It was amazing!

The service was also a good quality although sometimes it takes a bit for the server to come by when they start to get busy however we never experienced anything that we would consider unacceptable. This restaurant though would be considered on the higher end of the price scale though so keep that in mind. Other than that, it's a place we would come back to.

“Overpriced and underwhelming”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

The restaurant is beautiful with a great view, but the food was disappointing. My sons steak was 'chewy' and came rare as apposed to the medium rare he ordered. The Mussaka was dissapointing and the dressing on the Greek salad was too oily and bland. To be fair, my husband was the winner here. He ordered the pasta with wild mushrooms. It was delicious. I won't be going back, there are better options in Jasper!

“Not great sadly”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

Maybe we came on a bad day, but the stunning view & the excellent service from our waiter River really deserved better food. The pork tenderloin was anything but tender & the chicken dish was mediocre at best.

“Excellent Steaks”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

we took a chance on this restaurant as we hadn't decided on what type of food we wanted and what a pleasant surprise.

We had great views from our Window seat with mountain views.

Fantastic service even though they were very busy, delicious local beers and excellent juicy steaks , cooked exactly to our preferences.

My New York Strip steak was so succulent , likewise my wife's Sirloin steak.

A really nice ambience, superb food, excellent service and overall and very enjoyable evening meal.

Highly recommended based on our experience and we would go back next time we are in Jasper.

“Very Average food for above average price”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

The place looks great, has great service but the food was average at best! I love Greek food and this was prob the worst I've had. The chicken souvlaki that I ordered was dry and quite bland. Same for the Greek salad. The pita served with it was great!
