    This was an excellent brunch. We had had exceptional service from Tim our waiter and it was a memorable brunch as we started to celebrate are 50th anniversary. These choices and variety would suit any palate and was delivered to our table in a very timely manner. Thank you all.

    My husband and I were looking forward to a special dining experience at Orso Tratorria . We were seated in the elegant dining room by a lovely hostess. Our waitress was fabulous. However the food was very mediocre especially considering the elevated prices. In fact the Arctic Char fish dish I ordered was truly terrible. When the waitress asked us how we were enjoying the meal I was a bit embarrassed to reply that the fish was dry and overcooked and with out a delicious flavor. The Swiss chard was stringy and tough and the gnocchi were undercooked and inedible. I was graciously brought a replacement pasta dish but it was not what I was looking forward to eating. I ordered a beet and goat cheese first course and it had obviously been prepared hours before. The red beets had colored the golden beets and there was a tiny bit of goat cheese smeared on the plate. For dessert we ordered tiramisu for two prepared table side and it was over saturated with alcohol and a very poor version of this often enjoyed treat. My husband ordered a ribeye steak which he did enjoy. We have been in the Canadian Rockies for almost three weeks and have eaten top notch meals at the Post Hotel in Lake Louise, next level cuisine at the Moraine Lake Lodge and excellent food at several Jasper restaurants. Our dinner at the Orso Trattoria was the most expensive and by far the least well prepared food. I must compliment the waitress and the hostess who were both lovely. I rarely write a negative review but we were so disappointed in the quality of the food that we would not consider dining at Orso Trattoria again.

    We came to celebrate getting married, we were greeted with positive staff who were excited for us. From the onset they treated us with such respect and kindness which gave us a wonderful feeling of joy on a special day. Kiran V was our server and he guided us through the experience wonderfully. He made personal recommendations which I loved and cannot thank him enough for encouraging me to try, as well made my (newly) wife feel special all night. He was personable, gave us time, took photos for us, and made the experience what it was, the staff here do amazing things and go to great lengths to ensure you leave with a belly full of delicious food and drink, as well with an amazing memory of the night. Each course was delicious and the ambiance of the restaurant fit so well. It was the finest dining experience I’ve had, and being in the mountains with an amazing view made it even better, thank you so much for making my wife and my honeymoon perfect. I would also like to mention Jeff Stewart who got us the table by the window, you being excited for us made our experience even better and we can’t be more thankful.

    Really disappointed in our visit and meal at Orso. We took our two children because our son loves Italian food. We knew it was prefix, but we thought we could split some dishes. Our waiter made that difficult for us, very snooty. He was not able to really help us order a meal that fit us. It wasn’t really a cost issue for us, just wanted a good meal. Plus we were there almost 3 hours, to get served. This turned out to be one of the most disappointing and expensive meals of our Canada trip. I also seemed to have been overcharged and didn’t catch it. We ate at the fairmont Banff springs, Waldhaus restaurant and it was our favorite meal. Orso should take the snootiness down a couple notches, and maybe serve a couple a la cart Italian dishes.

    Orso Trattoria was fantastic, great ambiance and service. More casual than I expected and we were seated next to a large lively table, but nothing obnoxious. I had the Carbonara and it was probably one of the best Italian dishes I've ever had, it was velvety smooth and very rich with the large egg on top. We enjoyed the table side tiramisu but it was just ok, it was a hard act to follow after the carbonara. I enjoyed a great drink the nacional royale, it was amazing but so was the price at $31. All in all very nice night out, enjoyed the food and had a nice view of the lake.

    We keep coming back to Orso. Always amazing food---tasty, well presented and professionally served. John our server was our server last year also---he is knowledgeable, professional and knows the menu. The restaurant has a great selection of items, and many can be gluten free. Also available is their patio. We look forward to the next time we can visit Orso.

    Food was expensive and underwhelming. Prix fixe was a good option but limited choices. Substitutes were pricey. Bison tenderloin was a disappointment. But the service was impeccable. Kieran was very attentive and entertaining. We felt he made up for a lot that was lacking from the kitchen.

    The food was excellent and the tables near the window have an excellent view of the lake. Unfortunately though, the service was very slow despite the restaurant having not many guests for Sunday brunch. The wait staff were polite but our server spent a great deal of time visiting with the next table, who seemed to be his personal acquaintances.

    Service was excellent, very attentive. Tables well spaced apart. Cocktails unique and presented in appropriate glasses. Food was hit and miss. Though the write up on the menu sounded unique and full of taste, most of what was ordered was over cooked and/or bland. The wine pairing was not worth it. It was presented as the grape name, no vineyard name, region, etc. It was off the house wine list. We would go again but be more selective as to the food we would order.

    This time Orso was utterly disappointing. While the server was very very good, the food was not good. We had been to Orso a few months ago and the food and service were fantastic. Every course and every dish for all 6 of us was outstanding. This time, not so much. The four of us all had the full 3 course meal. Unfortunately the appetizers were only luke warm and the soup was cold. The server did send out another soup upon request which was a bit warmer but not hot. The main course was very dissapointing. The rack of lamb had poor flavor. One of the weakest efforts I have ever had. The lamb itself was very fatty. The Carbonara was a 2 out of 10. The Canelloni also had poor flavor. On a positive note the deserts were good. At the prices they charge one expects high quality food and preparation. This was terrible and for the price really depressing.

    Orso TrattoriaResponded on April 3, 2022Thank you for visiting us and for providing us the feedback at the restaurant. We apologize as this is definitely not our usual standard. Your feedback has been relayed to our Executive Chef and the kitchen team as an opportunity to learn from this event.

    I found the menu surprisingly limited. Basically we could choose a 3 course $72 set menu (base price with additional costs for a variety of menu main course upgrades) or a very limited (and very expensive) list of about 5 main entree options, each with additional cost for the sides (e.g. mash potatoes $14) and the sauce for your meat dish (another $8 for peppercorn sauce or wine demi glaze etc). The waiter was lovely but the cost seemed so over the top for what we got. We paid over $450 for meals for a family of 4 with 2 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine. We stayed at the JPL and this is really the only restaurant open at the hotel apart from Oka Sushi (which was excellent but only seats 8 people max so really can't meet the needs of the hotel). I would have expected there would be a restaurant that would be suitable for a broader audience. Honestly I thought we were booking for a higher end Italian restaurant but did not realize it was this expensive. Next time I'll be more careful to review the menu before booking.
