Oh my goodness. Stopped here on our way from Calary to Lake Louise. Best Bison burgers ever. Best view. Best fire place. So friendly. Hope to get back.

“Best meal in Banff”
Reviewed 1 March 2017

Coming from a foodie city I am always interested in well reviewed restaurants. I have to say that even though The Juniper is not a steak house, I did eat here the best ribeye I had in Banff. Meat was cooked to perfection (we were 3 at the table requiring different doneness and everyone was very happy with their plates), tender inside, slightly seared on the outside, well seasoned. The veggies were creatively tasty - squash and onions just delicious. I had beet salad as an appetizer, well presented, beet still slightly al dente, some fresh, some marinated, with pieces of subtle blue cheese. Not a huge wine lists but good choices at reasonable prices. Will definitely go back when I get another chance to come to Banff.

“Fabulous Brunch”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 via mobile

Highly recommend.

The service and food are amazing. You have a nice view of the Fairmont Springs Hotel. There's a cute patio with great views and fireplaces.

I highly recommend any of their Benny's (eggs Benedict)

Dear trishgayton1980,

Thank you so much for your feedback! Our kitchen team take great pride in everything they prepare, it is great to hear the quality and efforts show. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our little gem tucked away in the mountains. I would agree, the best patio in the Bow Valley. I can't wait for summer.

We look forward to seeing you again soon at The Juniper Bistro!

“Good food.”
Reviewed 15 February 2017

We enjoyed our meal at the Bistro. Started with salads and the Beet salad was the best. Three had the duck and one pork short rib. Delicious. I did mention it was my husband's birthday but no mention of this by the restaurant. I would go back.

Dear atraveller57,

We appreciate your kind words, and are happy to hear you enjoyed your meal! I will pass your praise along to our team, they will be happy to read your review! I am surprised to hear about the confusion with the birthday. We have started taking great pride in sending a birthday plate when we know or have been told about a celebration. There must have been a mix up. Our apologies. We look forward to seeing you at The Juniper Bistro again!
