We had delicious soup, humus, and crisp white wine to go with it. Good service, even on a busy holiday. Atmosphere is superb.
Thanks Scott!

We recently went to Murrieta's on a Saturday night. There were four people in our party and luckily we had made reservations. By about 8:30 p.m. or so, tables started clearing. The restaurant is loud, but it fits... the noise is not irritating.

The servers were very busy, but we had excellent service from start to finish. Our waitress seemed to always appear at the right time, and courses arrived at the perfect time. All the appetizers were very good... we shared calamari, shrimp and a couple of us had seafood chowder. The entrees were also very good - the clam and shrimp fettucine was excellent!

The only complaint I have was that the seating was a little tight in some areas - they could do with taking a couple of tables out, but I'm sure that's not likely to happen.

We felt we were taking a chance going to Murrieta's after some of the bad reviews we'd seen, but after our positive experience, I would definitely go back.

Four of us stopped here for lunch one weekend. Our experience was not good, at all. Our waitress wan indifferent to our menu questions. She served condiments on broken dishes and then acted like we were odd for asking for unbroken dishes. When she served our food she got part of it in my hair and then claimed it wasn't her. Part of our meals were cold and actually made one of us sick later in the day. Service overall was slow and the food was only ok. Not worth the price at all. I'd avoid this place and try something else if I eat in Canmore again.

We went downtown Canmore and found this restaurant upstairs off Main St. by luck. The papardelle was superb and the atmosphere nice. One odd thing was the service was superb until the food was presented, after that the server paid little attention to us until it was time for the bill. That was the 4th time that happened to us in Canada, strange custom!

Calamari, torn lettuce salad and chorizo pizza were tasty, but small portions. The waitress gave us the impression that it was a high end restaurant and that we weren't high end people, and acted like she would like to be just about anywhere else but serving us.
