Varied breakfast options, lovely flavors. Server was attentive & very sweet, view added to the charm & ambience. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed ours & each other’s different entrees - so pleased we made the Juniper Bistro part of our weekend in Banff.

We loved our Juniper experience! We enjoyed brunch outside with and incredible view. The salmon and juniper eggs Benedicts were amazing. My husband and I agreed it was one of the best we’d had in a long time.

I did expect a more refined experience given the high rating on trip advisor. Food was excellent though I found the breakfast portion a bit small. Service was most lacking - Stood waiting at the waiting sign by the stairs and host did acknowledge or welcome me even though she was standing right there. Waitress seemed like she didn't want to be there and came off quite unfriendly. I asked for a chai latte and she didn't know what that was nor did the restaurant have have tea based latte's or soy milk. For a restaurant of this caliber and given dining trends, I was quite surprised at this. Overall it was an OK experience, the views from the patio definitely made up for the lack of service.

By far the best Breakfast in the Bow Valley. I hesitated to review it because part of its quality is the lack of people but I want to support this restaurant so hence the review. Great for brunch. Haven’t tried lunch or dinner yet but will for sure. Service is above and beyond, friendly, thoughtful but not intrusive. The food is awesome, my husband loves the “bunny Bennie” and their Salmon Bennie is my fav. You can’t go wrong with anything from the menu. Just great all a around.

The food here is very well prepared and the ambiance is very cozy and laid back. It is located just outside of Banff, which is a real positive as it is quiet and the view from your table is amazing. We'll be back for sure.

Even though we live in Calgary for some reason we did not this hotel existed. We had company from Texas and we were hoping the restaurant would live up to the reviews. We were met by a stunning view of the mountains. We had the charcuterie board which everyone loved and there was more than we could finish. Several of us had the wild boar it was outstanding my wife had the cauliflower cashew bowl which she said was great we would definitely take guests there again.

Food was good (shakshuka and french toast). Thank you.
The view was limited due to the weather condition, but if you have a window seating it is a place worth of spending there some of your time.
A bit messy place but still quite cozy and informal.
The service was very kind and reasonably fast.

Great great brunch with awesome view over valley of mountains and chateau Fairmont. Large windows to take in the view from most tables.
Our waitress had great suggestions for the menu and local hikes. Salmon eggs Benedict and steak sandwich were delicious.
Only suggestion is new coffee mugs for espresso drinks- small ones were a disappointment. For latte drinks one size does not fit all

This little gem was a real surprise. The food was innovative and very good. Pricing was excellent for Banff. Only critique was that some of the salads were under dressed a bit (better that than over dressed mind you). We will go back!

Food was great, service was excellent. The restaurant could use some repairs and maintenance. Our table kept tipping at the table base, I had to keep my foot on it to stop our drinks from spilling. We sat by the windows and it could use a good cleaning along the window sill.
