We were staying at the Fairmont Lake Louise and were tired of the extremely high prices for dinner so we decided to venture out on a recommendation from the concierge.... The Truffle Pig Cafe has a nice cozy atmosphere and is set in small little Field about 30 minute drive from Lake Louise. It is worth any wait or drive as the food is amazing.

My family had read very complimentary reviews of this restaurant and were looking forward to a special dinner as we ended our "road trip." When we entered the restaurant there was some confusion initially about starting a wait list. Then we were told that we would have about a 15 minute wait. After 30 minutes of sitting on their waiting area sofa, without any further acknowledgment from the staff, I inquired about anticipated wait time as the response was, and I quote," You are jumping the gun a bit , m'am" and 'don't worry, we won't seat any other party of 4 before you." Everyone in the waiting area looked up in surpirse at these comments and the waitperson went on to say that he never said 15 minutes and that we could have eaten outside on the deck sooner, etc. His defensiveness was incredibly rude and ruined our evening as we walked out on that note. We drove to Golden and greatly appreciated the food, the welcome, and the less snooty atmosphere at the Kicking Horse Grill.

On the Pacific Northwest coast, where we come from, customers are never, ever treated the way we were treated at what felt like this very "in" restaurant. We were very disappointed but we are unable to enjoy even the best food in that type of atmosphere.

We were a little hesitant at first to stick around, as there were no tables to be had when we walked in. But, the staff (Jordan and Dave) were very up-front on the expected wait, and we decided to stick around and eat at the bar. This was the best decision we could have made. Jordan and Dave were absolutely amazing with the way that they handled the crowd and made sure everyone was taken care of. Despite the fact that they were flying around the restaurant trying to keep up with all the tables, they took every bit of it in stride and with an absolutely amazing attitude. They know how to do their jobs about as well as I could imagine. They both deserve a raise! As for the food, it was also very good and had some unique twists, although the prices are a little steep. This place gets busy, so higher-maintenance baby-boomer types (of which we counted a few) may get frustrated with the wait despite the honest and good-natured staff. But, for anyone else, a visit is highly recommended if you find yourself in Field.

I've eaten in many places in my travels, and this place tops them all. I found them while on a charity motorcycle trip, and have made special trips back since. I actually drove with a friend, 5 hours each way, just for dinner. It's that good. I promise.
