We don't miss this Gem when we come to town and this last visit confirmed why we don't and that we will definitely be back! When calling to make a reservation it was kindly explained to us ahead that they are training lots of new...staff because they are finally open to regular operating hours post COVID. We really appreciated that so we knew to practice patience, but also to help them learn. And we did just that by ordering a variety of items on the menu. Our server did great, the cocktails and food were fantastic and it is just such a great atmosphere over all. My favorite was the mussels in the red sauce, and the Smashkatoon cocktail is the best! Lastly we want to give a huge shout out to the Manager Sodu. We were both really impressed how he took the time to check on each table and ask if we were satisfied or had any feedback. As someone who managed in the service industry for many years I can say this is what managers should be doing but I find it rarely happens these days and have no doubt it will benefit your business. He was also very patient with his new staff and doing a wicked job training them. Everyone was having fun and were on point. We wish you all the best in the upcoming season and will continue to send people to your awesome establishment!More

Best place to eat in Jasper. Some of us eat a plant based diet and the vegan entrées are made from scratch and are super-tasty. The drink menu is extensive with lots of local options. The setting is inviting. At the time there wasn’t a...vegan dessert.More

Came in for my husbands birthday with a group of 10 while in town for a wedding this weekend. It was their third day open and it did not disappoint. The food was amazing (especially the duck club), staff was phenomenal, and atmosphere fantastic. Highly...recommend.More

We love Downstream. The food and service are top notch. We originally approached them two years ago to ask if they'd consider hosting our wedding reception, because we love the venue, service and food. The original date was in May 2020, but when that became...impossible, they worked with us to move the event (twice!) and to change the plans for the evening (much more than twice!). In the end, we finally got to celebrate in Oct 2021 and it was worth the wait. Our guests raved about the food! We had incredible service. It was a fantastic night for everyone in their intimate space. Special thanks to Shawn for all of the work with us for the last two years. If you are lucky enough to have a meal at the Downstream, splurge! The Bison Ribs and Elk Sirloin are particularly amazing. One of our guests said "the best ribs she'd ever eaten".More

Sophie, the server who welcomed me was friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. She offered suggestions to suit order to my dietary needs, and everything arrive quickly at my table. We had a brief chat about local spots for hiking, and I was impressed with...the beauty of the place I visited today.More

Downstream is a dream come true to anyone who is celiac or has gluten sensitivities! The menu is predominantly GF with any exceptions clearly marked. The menu is pub style fare, which is especially a treat after all the salads traditionally offered as GF options!...The food was tasty and fresh and the service was fantastic. We will be back!More

After driving from Banff we stopped into Jasper for supper, walked the sidewalk and decided to eat here. Prompt service for a table, but slow service for drink or food. Food was okay, but extremely pricey. The kicker was the male server, he was so...ignorant, rolling eyes, and flicking the receipt into our face (after we requested a copy) along with him asking for a tip. (I always tip, but it's usually cash, he questioned right after seeing there wasn't a tip added to the slip) then walked away. Very ignorant service.More

This restaurant was fantastic! From the warm greeting, great service from all staff, delicious food, and the willingness to participate in a fun, out-of-the-box challenge this place deserves 10 stars!

Really great food, especially if you’re looking to try something new like Elk, which you won’t find in most restaurants. Very knowledgeable servers and bartenders too! If Richie is behind the bar, have him make your drink! Also if you don’t eat gluten, this is...the place for you, every item aside from one or two can be made GF without cross contamination. We dined here 3 times and had a different server each time, all were amazing. Thank you, we will be back this winter!More

Yes, children can go; this is a family friendly, relaxed place. As others noted I would go earlier (by 7pm) as the evening does get going with music etc..
