My wife and I ate here and went based on the reviews. There were one or two that were indifferent but our experience was very positive. Firstly , the service was excellent - very friendly and welcoming. The food was very high quality, cooked to perfection and great value. Good range of wines available although there was no desert wine option, which we mentioned and they were open to this suggestion. Glad we ate here and was not disappointed.

Thank Steve M

Thanks for the positive feedback. We're in the process of adding a dessert wine to our menu and have been trying some different kinds. Again thanks for the suggesting it to your server.

We had no reservation but got in anyway. I had a very flavorful shrimp lollipop appetizer and my husband had a beef appetizer. Then followed the beef tenderloin and meat loaf. All was very good, and the sauces were very tasty. We loved seeing Stella Artois at the top of the beers on tap -- one of our favorites. We liked it so much that we made reservations for tomorrow!

There are very few compliments greater than dining two nights in a row. Thank you.

Our second trip to this Jasper eatery. The food is excellent. Service depends on the waiter. This time the waiter was a bit surly and we felt rather rushed through the meal. But, the meal was delicious. We started with the Evil Diva Salad (yummy, but de rigueur) and the soup of the day which was delightful. The special was fresh Halibut and neither my companion nor I could resist the description. The dish was beyond our high expectations, perfectly cooked and accompanied by impeccable vegetables. The wine was just right as well. We'll be back and hoping for a different waiter, but similar mouth-watering food.

Thanks for the review. Our service team try to provide great service in a relaxed atmosphere. Hopefully it was just one of those "off days" for your server. The halibut is definitely a very popular dish and only available during the fishing season.

Evil Dave's seems to get very good reviews and by and large they are deserved and on our visit the place was bustling and noisy - perhaps a little too loud for the size of the restaurant.

Good friendly staff are helpful and there are good daily specials that we tried.

The quality was faultless but on our visit delivery was a bit too quick for our liking - I think they wanted to sell our table, so its seemed a bit rushed.

Good cooking of good raw materials in hearty portions ensure no-one is going to go hungry here and it is certainly worthy of its rastings - but there is competition just down the road at Syrah's. The thing to do is make sure you are in town for two nights and enjoy both!

Thanks for the kind review. We rarely get reviews that say we are too quick. Our servers have quite a lot of experience and will let the kitchen know if guests want a more relaxed dining experience. Jasper has quite a few restaurants offering high quality dining. I suggest staying for more than two nights, I came for 1 summer and that was 28 years ago:)
