We had a great time at the market bistro and the food is always fresh and delicious. Jeet, our server, kept checking in with us and made sure we had an amazing evening.

Staff (Charu) we’re fast, efficient, and friendly. The shrimp risotto and the chefs seafood special were out of this world!! It’s a little out of the way from “downtown” but we’ll worth the trip. We will definitely be back!!

Ordered the special of the week (meatball sandwich & tomato soup) the soup came out fresh & hot, with great consistency, not too liquid not too thick, perfectly balanced. The meatball on the sandwich were so rich, the chef even explained that they use 3...different types of meat for the meatballs. By far the best ones I have ever tried. They’re Juicy and full of flavour. And a special shout-out to Jeet my server. He was very knowledgeable about every dish, drinks and specials on the restaurant, he was very friendly and it looked like he enjoys what he’s doing, and that will bring a different taste to your drinks and food. Thanks to the whole team, and I hope this restaurant one day becomes more popular, since it’s a hidden gem.More

We arrived early and were seated at a high top table that actually didn’t tip! Our server Charu was a delight. The music was a gentle funky mix and nice lighting added to the Market’s ambiance. It felt cozy. My wife decided two appys were...her choice with Salmon Tartar and the Mussels. Both were superb. The tartar had a fresh creaminess to it. The mussels were a highlight! You must try these. They are in a savoury tomato sauce and it arrives with dipping bread to soak it all up. There was no sauce left at the end. I decided to order that days special which was braised beef rib with prawns. It was so tender and flavourful. The reduction was very umami and the prawns were cooked to perfection. They were not rubbery at all as is a common finding with shrimp. These guys know how to cook a great meal. It is a hidden gem in Canmore and worth your while to visit.More

My friend and I visit Canmore from Calgary several times a year, but this was our first time visiting The Market Bistro. It's not right in the downtown area, but definitely worth the drive! Service was first rate (thanks to Charu), the food was delicious...(we each had the daily special, braised beef with prawns), and the presentation was lovely. Dessert was great too; my friend had the creme brûlée, I had the cheesecake. We'll definitely be recommending this place to friends.More

Hi, yes it's $13/bottle, and you can also buy it at our wine boutique next to the Bistro and ask for a good pairing with the food you are going to order.
