    My favorite breakfast brunch spot. I drive from Calgary. Wasn’t up to par this time. Invited friends so that was disappointing. Meals sat under the light for 10 minutes. Server disappeared. So food was warm at best. My husband got 1/3 of the portion of potatoes as the rest of us?? Surely that’s something easy to see before bringing out. Mixed up who got what with our eggs. Had to ask three times to get enough jam for all of us and not just one tiny bowl for 4 people. Thank goodness I love the view and know it’s usually better.

    The stuffed French toast was pretty unreal, that said the view was just so breath taking. The big windows overlooking the valley really would have made anything a good, so the fact that the food was REALLY good just pushed it over the top. Service was also kind and excited to see us excited.

    This was our third time visiting Juniper Bistro and it did not disappoint! We went for brunch and had the Juniper Benny and the French toast - both were incredibly delicious. The view is stunning, the service was excellent, and the food was excellent quality. Will definitely be back!

    First time going to juniper and it was outstanding! It did help that we went on a Wednesday and there was no one around so our brunch experience was amazing. The view is breath taking, the food was delicious in every bite, and our service was wonderful! Definitely recommend going if you haven't.

    As repeat customers, service this time was not what we expected. Menu is awesome, ambience outstanding but our food arrived cold and our beverages arrived after our meal! Our server was slammed with a large table and we could see he was very busy but after taking our order we never saw him again, not even to bring our bill. Because we have never had a bad experience here before, we are chalking this up to a “one off” experience.

    Christmas Brunch Special Menu Price: $40 Style: 3 Course Menu: 3/10 Service: 4/10 Atmosphere: 8/10 Price: 2/10 Overall: 4.25/10 3 Course Chrsitmas Brunch was wholly disappointing. The appetizers and desserts portion was basically a few fruits bread cheese and salami. The "Main course" was a choice of benny or sandwich melt. It would be hard to justify a $40 eggs Benedict in a 3 Michelin restaurant let alone Juniper Bistro. Our server while friendly did not have basic table waiting skills reaching across guests, counting rim of our tea and coffee mugs, taking food away before we were finished. The atmosphere was beautiful with a view of the Rockies and a fit pit area outside. Unfortunately I would have to give Juniper Bistro a: Do Not Recommended

    Amazing restaurant! When I was there, it was quiet and inviting with Christmas lights twinkling in one area, simple festive centre pieces that smelled of pine trees, easy listen music playing, and a fire burning in an old wood fireplace! I sat by the fire and was treated to a VIP service, or so it seemed. Very attentive bar tender/waiter. I had the salmon and it did not disappoint!!! Amazing!!! Loved it!!!

I had the Stuffed French Toast which was so delicious and my husband had the Alpine Melt. The views from the restaurant are spectacular.

    We had a 7pm reservation. The restaurant was quiet and we both had the potato leek soup and then the short rib special. Select wine bottles were half price. We enjoyed our bottle and didn’t have far to walk to our room. Our server was great as well. We recommend this restaurant. Delicious food and beautiful atmosphere.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have a super good experience. The view was amazing but the service wasn’t great and the food was pretty average. Maybe we just had an off experience because I know this place comes highly rated. I’d still recommend going just in case we just had bad luck.

    Lovely experience for a weekend brunch in November 2022. Our server / shift manager was the key to the whole moment for us!! Faith, our lovely server, was warm and friendly, professional, engaging, efficient … the list goes on! honestly! The feeling I had was like it was a completely different era when customer focused service was top priority! Our honoured guest (75th birthday) and my mom (91 yrs) were treated like gold. Same for my husband and I. The food was quick, lovely to look at and delicious, the coffee - hot and perfectly made (not bitter but full bodied and perfect!) I am tardy with this post but I am still delighted when I think back to this special brunch date! Thank you, we will be back! Bridget and Mike (Calgary) Barb (vancouver) and Barbara (Calgary) too!! ☺️
