    A lovely evening with fantastic food. You will pay Fairmont prices though so expect a large bill.

    When I ordered the scallops, I only got two small scallops. My husband and I shared the lamb and risotto and we only got one chop each and the risotto did not have a lot of flavour. I’m glad they included free bread and olives because I ate a quarter of the loaf because I was still hungry!! Wouldn’t go back.

    Excellent dining experience at Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Amazing service from host/hostess, Tim, and Elnur Derbas’, Assistant Outlet Mgr, knowledge of wine pairing with our meal. Unique piccolo/starters and grande/main. Foie gras & apple was outstanding. We wanted to return there again for dinner during our stay at JPL but they were closed for special events.

    We won’t be back. It was our Anniversary-reserved ahead-was seated on the side-server spilled my wine when she poured it and at 30$ for 8 oz, shouldn’t waste any! We had to Ask for the Jasper in January menu. Table seated after us received everything before us. Soup was served without a spoon, had to ask for it. Pork scaloppini was over cooked snd prepared incorrectly- it should have been pounded thin- it was chewy. The pasta was over cooked and the tomato sauce was uneventful. No cracked pepper was offered or o would have taken it. Others enjoyed the pepper option though. Finally our dessert was served to the wrong table- the one with the faster service and after it was whisked away it returned a few minutes later…pretty sure it was the same one! Ugh. I left a note and still tipped 10% -usually tip 20 % but just couldn’t considering this is supposed to be fine dining…

    Families with screaming infants should be asked to leave. It isn’t fair to the other patrons. A restaurant like Orso’s might consider adopting a minimum 16 years of age policy to ensure all diners are able to fully enjoy the ambiance and menu of the restaurant.

    Lovely dinner. Did the 3-course meal. The amuse-bouche and first course were amazing. The main course was a change from lamb to duck (which we were excited about as we prefer duck) however, the duck was not prepared well. It was underdone, chewy, and the “fat” had zero crisp to it. The dessert was okay but, nothing spectacular. It was a nice evening though and the restaurant was practically empty.

    This was our fourth annual dinner at Orso. Sadly our waiter Tim made this an expensive, awful night out. When we sat down, nothing was noted as the hostess had - the biggest issue being that an allergy was present, and he actually offered me that allergen rather than reading the ticket. Past that, our food runner informed us that he had mixed up our seating with our meals, meaning that my food was no longer allergy safe. While waiting for drinks for 25 minutes, we saw Tim visit and have incredible conversations with the table besides us, six times. In doing so, he did comp our drinks, however he truly ruined our anniversary experience. Sadly the level of care has gone down at Orso while the price has gone up, and it’s just no longer worth the hassle.

    Orso was truly wonderful! The food was incredible, and the staff went out of their way to make us all happy! We were a large group, and our server and bartender knocked it out of the park. Our team of 14 was from all over the world, and everyone can not wait to return. I personally will dream about the smoked old fashioned, the ravioli, and the venison for weeks to come. Thank you!

    The food and service were excellent. Our low rating is because of the table we were seated at. We made a reservation a month in advance. The hostess brought us to the worst table right in the middle of the room. We asked for a table by the window and she refused to seat us there because the tables were already set for breakfast. What should have been a nice dinner experience was ruined. We won’t be back.

    We waited 15 plus minutes before the waitress took our drinks order. In our party of five three meals came out first two of which were cold one was sent back to be heated. The other two mains took close to ten minutes to come out so everyone s meals were cold waiting for our guests to be served. One plate was supposed to have 5 shrimp only four were served. The chicken mushroom Alfredo was more gooey than creamy and the chicken was stringy having been shredded instead of chopped. Lobster Tortellini had three tortellini that’s all. The Tiramisu was prepared on the spot instead of overnight and was a soaking disaster. Very disappointed with this meal and the timing with service delivery.

    The food was very disappointing. First course was limited choices, I had cesear salad and it was not even real bacon. Second kruse was the venison and it was too raw so I sent it back and on second attempt wasn’t much better. Dessert was very disappointing as well, hazelnut chocolate cake that seemed like frozen dough. Not good value for the 85.00 per person. Will not be returning.

    Our appetizer, Apple Ravioli was lovely, as well as the lemon dessert. However, the Lobster Tortellini was almost inedible-- tough lobster and very little of it--it should have been called "Sorrel Tortellini ".

    We were very excited to eat here. We thought the menu was excellent and the price was very good, considering it was part of the lodge. While the food was delicious our service was poor and our waiter was abrupt, rude and honestly soured our experience. He didn’t deserve our tip at all based on his attitude. It seemed he was covering too many tables but others actually got service without haven’t to wave him down to ask for water or to order a bottle of wine! Not acceptable service in a nice restaurant. When asked to split our bill and my husband asked to verify the price he immediately was again rude and abrasive. Not a smile on his face all night. Not a good representative of the hotel or restaurant. A burger in town would have been q better experience.

    Started out as a good experience with another couple we were travelling with. Waiter was very efficient and friendly until it got busier and thus made them short-staffed. Waiter upsold us on side-dishes that we never ate. Potatoes were not even edible as they were extremely salty. Upsold us on wine that was $16 for a 5oz glass; $76 for a 25oz bottle. My friend and I ordered one glass each and he insisted a bottle would make more sense. Wish I did the math! I guess it saved him running to the bar to get us a refill! (less than $20 to pour my own at home) Neither of the 3 courses impressed; food and drinks were all mediocre and overpriced; 4 of us were left disappointed.
