The Juniper is truly a gem in the Bow Valley. Having eaten here a number of times, the food has been consistently good. We tend to go for the more unusual dishes and have not been disappointed yet.
Food was outstanding and our server was wonderful! The views were breathtaking!
Ordered the Juniper Benny at our table and it was very bland. Food took an extremely long time to get to us from order and the restaurant was not busy.
This is a must when visiting Banff. View is incredible. Wait staff very helpful. Then hotel has interesting displays of the history of the area.
The service was fantastic. We had a lovely server, I regret not memorizing his name, who was on top of our every desire. The atmosphere was peaceful and personal. The food was great and portion sizes were very generous. We came on a winter night so we unfortunately did not get to experience the view, but the restaurant is beautiful nonetheless. We enjoyed an appetizer, two entrees, a dessert, and a bottle of wine, all under a very affordable bill at the end. I am definitely returning on a summer evening to enjoy a window seat or even patio experience.
The ingredients were great, but the cooking was very disappointed. The appetisers were fine. The issues were with the main courses. We pretty much ordered most of the main courses (i.e., steak, pork, fish) and they were consistently poorly executed. I hope it is just that one night that the team does not perform well because the ratings are pretty high for Juniper Bistro.
Decent food, friendly service.
My wife booked this restaurant as part of her 50th birthday celebration weekend in Banff, we actually stayed in this hotel. Review on the internet was great, unfortunately it didn't meet our expectation. The mushroom started she had was overpowered by the sourness of the berries (we assumed) and both the beef and the boar were tough chewy but the seasoning was tasty. The roasted turnip was very nice though. For the price we paid, we were disappointed.
Service was great, thank you. We would have booked for an earlier sitting if we realized that by 6pm, there is no view to be had.
A beautiful and best kept secret of Banff. I came here to celebrate a birthday and the staff made our party feel very special and welcomed. The views from the restaurant are incredible, the food was amazing (we had brunch), and the staff were kind enough to take our pictures outside on the patio despite it being freezing outside. Thanks again Juniper for a wonderful experience.
We had amazing service and fantastic food to celebrate our engagement. Would highly recommend.
Fantastic view, nice ambiance, attentive service, inspired menu, especially with veggie and GF. A bit pricy on some items. Loved the beet gnocchi and Juniper sage tea at dinner and the granola with grilled grapefruit at breakfast.
We got the stuffed French toast and salmon benny. Both were SO GOOD. Food is not cheap but you do pay for the views. Service was great. Will definitely be back.
Really enjoyed dining at this restaurant. Would definitely go again!
Seeing an old friend
Really enjoyed our birthday dinner. Thank you for the wonderful meal!
Outstanding food and service every time. Our favorite restaurant in Banff. Beautiful view of the mountains and away from the throngs downtown.
What a great place ! The view is gorgeous Service was outstanding and the food was delicious Went for brunch after weekend in Banff Will definitely go back in summer and sit on patio surrounded by mountains
Wonderful experience! From the initial seating to the final bite. Worth a visit!
Simply amazing!!! Very memorable for all the right reasons - views, service, exquisite meal! Make it a point to dine here whenever in Banff.
We had a wonderful meal. Both of the fish dishes we ordered were moist and wonderfully prepared. The wine selection was Canadian and a delightful surprise! Would absolutely recommend and will return if ever in Banff.
Amazing evening... awesome drinks before dinner and the best Duck I’ve ever tasted!...
The food was above average and the service was very attentive. The building and the patio are fairly dated and could use some upgrades. I would go back again though.
Great restaurant with imaginative local ingredients (the wild mushrooms with berries were to die for). Service was great and wine list was a fine collection of Canadian wines. G-free and dairy free gourmets- and anyone else-- should love the food and wine here. Oh, and the views doin't disappoint either.
Do not eat here under any cercumstances. Had a table for 6 and meal took over 1.5 hours from ordering to get to the table. Portions were very small and overpriced (~$40 per entre). Left feeling hungry and dissatisfied. Asked for seat with view did not get one despite many empty tables. Do not eat here. Other restaurants have better value and service. I made the reservation and left apologizing to my friends and family. Don’t make the same mistake I did.
What a great meal! My husband and I dined in the patio and enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains. I had the roasted beets with goat cheese, it was one of the best meals I can remember! Food was perfectly prepared, interesting flavors, and spot-on service. Hubby had the halibut with sun chokes and enjoyed it! We savored the amazing mushrooms as an appetizer. Highly recommend Juniper!!
Lovely food, very pleasant and friendly servers, and one of the best views in town. A bit pricey.
Steve was very accommodating and helpful for our after dinner planning as well - good food and a nice view from our quiet table - would recommend!
High marks all around. Well refined, locally sourced food. Detail oriented service. One of Banff’s best!
Really good ambiance, friendly, knowledgeable server.
I quite enjoyed the heirloom tomatoes and sea bass.
Ordered the scallop, was delicious, but could have put a couple on the plate for the price point!
Overall a great experience.
Amazing food. Great service. All around good place to go for dinner. Mushroom appetizer was excellent.
The evening was spoilt by the noise of a fridge in the bar, the rudeness of the manager and the food. A,though the meat was excellent the steak was not cooked medium as requested. Most if the vegetables were undercooked. The lemon tart base was burnt.
This was our first trip to Banff and as we read reviews and planned our vacation, we decided to make reservations at Juniper Bistro. We were absolutely pleased with the food and service our waiter Ben provided. The drinks were great, as well as the setting. Would recommend Juniper Bistro to those who enjoy and appreciate great healthy. nd wholesome dining!
Creative bar drinks, excellent service and food. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Excellent meal in a beautiful location, I would recommend the Bistro to anyone looking to have a special meal with the best vibe in Banff.
Great food and service! I ordered a beer and did not like it and ordered wine instead. My husband though frank my beer and they did not charge us for it! The steak was probably the best I have ever had! Wonderful place and great vacation find!
Everything was amazing - the gorgeous views, the service, the food. The cocktail mixologist is an absolute genius, we tried 4 from the menu and each was incredibly creative and delicious. Highly recommend the bacon and scallop entree.
We read some review in trip advisor and tried the place but the quality of the food was not so good . May be we are Italian and we are quite critical with food but we’d never come again
The staff was nice and try to make our dinner good
Great ambience, good service. Food was good though little pricey. Wild boar was tasty & tender and not gamey tasting. Halibut was good but small portion.
Truly one of the best places my family and I ate while in Banff. The view is spectacular, and the food is delicious!
