Aalto’s inspiration runs deep. From Pyramid Lake’s shimmering waters to the sky-scraping peaks that tower above, we’ve translated our neighbouring natural wonders onto our menu. The result is what we call “lake-food” — a homegrown interpretation of seafood that spotlights Jasper’s finest regional flavours.

    Wonderful - we were staying at the Pyramid Lake Resort, and the restaurant and its staff were the best part! Had 2 dinners and 1 breakfast here, thoroughly satisfying with food that reflects attention to selection and preparation.

His presentations and flavors pairing was so good. The dinner drinks were also outstanding. We loved everything including the view. Thank you for making our 50th anniversary so special. Highly recommend and hope we can return soon.

    The food was actually very creative and delicious, complements to the chef! Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed with the service. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and we picked this restaurant to celebrate. I told them when I made the reservation and even in person the night before that I wanted it to be a special night. They did absolutely nothing. They did not even say happy anniversary... I just could not believe it.

    We had cocktails, the mushroom dumpling appetizer, mains and the chocolate cake for dessert and everything was phenomenal! We were celebrating new jobs and the staff read my note on my reservation and knew about bringing out a congratulations dessert. We sat on the balcony and the view was amazing. Would highly recommend!

    Beautiful setting and ambiance on Pyramid Lake. We had lunch on a rainy, cool day in Jasper. Beautiful view of the lake, would have been even nicer if the fire had been lit. Good service. Good cocktails, husband enjoyed the fish sandwich and I had the salad which was nothing special. Very limited menu.

    I loved my meal, my husband couldn’t eat his. They were kind enough to offer him something else, but he said nothing appealed to him. (There is a very small menu.) the view from the restaurant is of the lake and the outdoor seating looked at the same. Beautiful. I had the Duck with parsnip mashed and charred broccolini and carrots which was outstanding . He had the fish at the top of the menu and couldn’t eat it. Drink service was very slow. We had a server on his first day at work, super nice, just needs some time to get used to things. We liked him. We saw my hubbys drink sit on the bar for over 5 mins, and got another girl to bring it to us.

    A little out of the way from Jasper city center but a hidden gem. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. The food was very well prepared and serving portions just right. The view of Pyramid lake from the restaurant was amazing. The duck breast was delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant and the drive around the lake is a must do as well.

    We really wanted to like it, but it just wasn’t great. Oysters had little bits of crushed shell that we had to spit out and the steak was so tough and chewy. For the price and the distance for that meal it was such a let down. Do not recommend

    Best dining experience of our trip! Our sever, James, was knowledgeable and attentive. He even helped us find our best adventure for the day (thank you the island was amazing). We will not only be back to the restaurant but we'll be staying at the resort for our next trip. Perfect, start to finish Aalto!

    This is the new offering at the Pyramid Resort, replacing The Pines. The space is gorgeous, as are the views. The food looks beautiful but there are clear growing pains in this new restaurant. The bread service with the meat and fish board, and with the cheese baked, is a home made lavache, but the bread was thick, hard and stale, and very difficult to break (let alone eat with the food). Also both the meat/fish board and the cheese board come with the exact same sauces, which is boring if you get both. The cocktails are not well balanced, and the wine list is extremely expensive, with 3x mark ups for inexpensive wines. I hope the quality will improve as the chef, bartender and staff become more experienced and as this new restaurant hits its stride.
