Friends recommended we visit this restaurant, the menu whilst modest in size had some very nice meals. The steak tartare starters were great, we hadn’t had it in this style previously. For mains we had the Lamb Pasta and Crème Brûlée for dessert. It’s not...a cheap restaurant, but the best meal to date in Canmore.More

Disappointing to say the least. Besides serving me wine that had gone off, the first guy ignoring me when I said it was totally wrong - the wine guy immediately noticed it was wrong when I handed it to him to check, and while he...fixed it the replacement was half a glass (3oz maybe if I'm lucky) yet I was still charged full price for it (who does that?!?!), ON TOP OF THAT the main pasta with lamb had maybe 35 ish grams of meat (1.5 oz ) and was so small it was the size of the appetizer. And sat out under a heat lamp is my guess. Yet you're paying a lot. And I had a lot of toilet visits the next day. Being as this is the only food I'd eaten out in 6 weeks, and am blessed/careful in my chioces so that I to get to eat out at fabulous places around the world, I sure do know what caused it. Sadly a huge disappointment as a 'special night out' after 6 weeks of super healthy 'cleanse' eating. Pretty for photos, great for Instagram tourists. Not a place I'd recommend or return to. Especially with serving wine like that. Which, since I'm this honest lets be totally honest... I actually think they decided to treat the solo woman as sometimes people do, and gave me some cheap crap wine thinking I'd not know the difference, replacing a nice Pinot Noir with some syrupy crap and then giving me a rather rude runaround about it till I got "the wine guy" to check it.More

An excellent contemporary restaurant with a stunning dining room and very well-cooked items - everything from the butternut squash soup flavouring, the steak level and even the child’s menu was balanced.

I went to this restaurant with my mom this past Saturday. And it was outstanding. The food is very tasty 😋. I got the chefs 3 course tasting meal. If you’re looking to try out this restaurant I would highly recommend the chefs 3 course...tasting meal.More

Rustic ambience. Great service. Good was good quality... My husband had the Lamb and i had the pork chops. The Lamb was the better option, pork chop was a bit tough but the maple reduction with it was wonderful. Good value, bit higher priced.

Love the food and service. Although the pork chop was a tad too salty for our palate and we would prefer the prawns to be served hot rather than cold, I would want to go back again if I can to try the rest of...the dishes.More

While the service was polite and friendly, the food was way below average. Pieces of tuna served with unchewabke skin on buried under a mushy sauce for appetizer and a tough unevenly cooked hanger steak served over tasteless mash potatoes.

Great location in Canmore. We chose options off the menu and skipped the tasting. We were so happy with our choices. The lamb was amazing. The service was attentive and welcoming. Recommended for sure!

Good: Online reservation tool (made reservation 3 weeks ahead of visit), food presentation, timing & food temperature, overall service (i.e. water glass never went empty) Could be better: Lack communications - we did not find out until we sat down that the ‘Trust the Chef’...offering we specifically called out in our online booking wasn’t possible GF/DF (as it was in the past). It was too loud to have a conversation. When asked about a wine, it was a very generic response ( ‘like any other’ ‘nothing unique’) with no other suggestion or information - unlike past visit. Spendy considering food was not particularly unique or memorable flavors (unlike last visit).More

Very good food in a minimalist environment, with a fabulous view of the mountains around. Reinterpreted tandori chicken with a forbidden rice I did not know existed (fantastic taste), friendly and bilingual service, a great experience for a night stop in Canmore.

Worst dining experience I have encountered in 15 years and wrecked my wife’s birthday. I wondered if we might be in for a ride when the wrong bottle of wine was brought to our table for the third time and we were. The best part...was when they completely messed up my order and instead of coming over to discuss the issue they avoided our table while the others in our party had their meals. When the right dish finally came out after everyone was done eating and it was so over cooked I never even took a bite. Again avoided the table had to call server over and finally manager to get some degree of service. And I get told they would not charge me for the meal I ordered and did not receive. I had to prompt them to smooth the waters and destroying my wife’s birthday diner with friends to comp the wine. Could not get out of this place fast enough so I could get a good meal and excellent service somewhere else. I do enjoy being told that these things just happen. Yeah if you are a poorly run, pretending to be high end joke of a restaurant. Do not go here.More

We are still talking about the most perfect evening spent here a few days ago. We were seated at a corner window gazing at the mountains, drinking cocktails and eating the most delicious food. We ordered the surprise chiefs menu - absolute heaven and not...usually something we would have normally ordered at a restaurant but it was exceptional. The entire staff were professional and friendly and our server was great - really wish I could remember her name but the cocktails were obviously too good. hahaha!! As it was our anniversary we wanted a memorable evening - the Sensory delivered on every point!! Thankyou!!!More

I’ve been to many restaurants that cost an arm and a leg to eat at, but do not deliver a meal which reflects the price… but this was different. Best meal I may have ever eaten. I tried the “trust me me” meal and am...very glad I trusted the chef. They delivered a 3 course meal which every course was hand picked by the chef. You could taste the passion put into the work. Thank you Naémie for the amazing service as well!!More

I don't think there is a designated Happy Hour, there will be occasional special priced lunch items, or lunch menus, but overall there aren't a lot of Happy Hour consistencies like in other towns/areas in Canmore.

Hi, there is a wonderful view of the mountains through each window. We had the ‘Trust Me’ dinner which is 3 courses. The food really was great. I’m sure if you call the restaurant they will give you more info. Enjoy!
