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.

    Lovely place for breakfast -- my husband and I have been twice for breakfast on visits to Jasper and it has been great both times. Mountain views and delicious food. Next time we want to stay right at the Pyramid Lodge because it is such a nice spot.

    Me and my girlfriend came here at around 4 o clock whilst the grazing menu was available and went into the dinner menu. We had one of the best days together in a long time. The ambience and architecture of the restaurant is incredible and it is an experience just to be there. We had the meat and sea platter, short rib doughnuts and cauliflower cheese gratin. Everything was so delicious. Favourite was the meat and sea platter, it is basically a charcuterie board with the most fresh ingredients. Paid 120 for a filling meal for two with drinks and including a tip. The servers were very skilled in what they do and extremely friendly and hospitable. I do not remember their names but the f and b manager and the tall bald man with a beard especially. Many thanks to all the staff there as it made our day so much better.

    Went for valentines dinner and had a reservation for two. Food was decent but service was odd, maybe the two servers on were under staffed but none of that was mentioned to us. Cocktails came long after our starters were finished.. and no quality check on them. I actually waited 10 minutes and then got up to get my own salt and pepper across the restaurant. We were asked if we wanted the bill before my dessert even came out… then machine with the total was brought to us before the itemized bill… for this amongst a few other things… I will be hard pressed to convince my partner to come back. Hoping this was a one off and maybe short staffed due to the slow season, as the restaraunt seems quite nice. Will try to make it back soon and hope for a more elevated experience.

    My girlfriend and I are here on Valentine’s Day. The three course meal was delicious, although could have been served hotter. I think 70$ a head is slightly steep given the portion sizes. The service was okay - being slightly slow and not as attentive as you would like. However, I’m sure it could have been much better, given that there were only 2 staff members on the floor, that were serving, hosting and running food. The ambience could also be drastically improved if the lighting was dimmer. With that being said, we had a lovely evening but there is definitely room for improvement!

    Our server had no idea about the Valentine's special that was going on and it was the only reason we booked there. JAMES do better... all the other services staff know what the specials were other then you. It was the first day of the special. Every table around us was able to get it.... you told multiple tables that nothing other then the bison was avaliable.. the food we ordered was good. But we almost went else where

    We had high hopes for Aalto, as we went to the previous restaurant in this space a year before… and it fell short in multiple ways. $42 steak was rare and came to the table already cut, and was cold, the split pea soup was unseasoned and had sea weed as a garish (odd choice). We intended to have a quiet, delicious, romantic dinner, but the server/manager wasn’t very friendly, seemed like she didn’t want to be there, when we mentioned the steak was cold she didn’t really do anything to correct it. The drinks were mediocre, and the only good thing worth the price was the bread starter. Maybe it wasn’t a good night for them, unfortunately it was a disappointing experience for the price.

    Christmas dinner 3 courses was soo good!! However the Turkey Roulade looked like butterball Turkey out of a box. It did not look like handmade rolled Turkey. However the main menu itself wasn’t what we were expecting which had soo much fish on it and weird food that we did not know what was it.

    Cocktails and food were amazing. Steak was well-seasoned, just a little gristle on the cut I got. Servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and made choosing easy. Worth the small trip up from Jasper if you're not already staying at the Pyramid Lake Lodge.

    I was really surprised with Aalto. They have an elevated cuisine, and that was the surprised factor for me. I did not expect it. The food was amazing. My only critique if I wanted to get picky would be the plating. They can do so much more. The service was incredible, and the ambiance as well. I highly recommend this place for special occasions or any occasion while in Jasper.

    Service was great and staff were friendly and prompt. We had thanksgiving dinner and the food was definitely a couple steps above what we normally have for thanksgiving. Everything was well prepared and it was such a treat. Beautiful dining room and view. My husband felt the portion sizes were too small for the price but we would come back for a special occasion.
