The Raven Bistro is located in the heart of Jasper, Alberta and offers Mediterranean fusion fare with local flair backed by a view of the mountains. Our culinary team all love being in Jasper and thrive on blending fresh, local ingredients to create memorable, high quality dishes served in an intimate environment. The menu offers many vegan options and is malleable to those with dietary concerns. Paired with cocktails mixed with Alberta distilled spirits, Canadian Craft Beer and Canadian wines by the glass and bottle, this is the spot for a special evening out in Jasper National Park.

Vegetarians are likely to enjoy the Moroccan Chickpea and Kale Strudel or Smokey Portuguese Black Bean Stew. The Coconut Kaffir Lime Seafood Pot, Three Pharaohs and Steak Argentine are all long time local favorite dishes. Paired with a Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita and finished with a Banana Cheesecake Spring Roll, you are looking at a great night out!

We would highly recommend the lamb shank and the beef Wellington. Both were excellent, as was the service and the ambience. We will be back.

I have been going to Raven Bistro pretty much since they opened. The original owner opened Raven while also running another resturant in Jasper. He has since sold both but Raven has maintained a great atmosphere and the food is still excellent. I would definately recommend trying Raven next time you are in Jasper and looking for something a bit more refined than Earl's.

The tables rare crammed together. When my dinner arrived the protein had been substituted with no notice. Instead of a braised lamb shank I received a very fatty rack of lamb that was over cooked to toughness. We will not be back here.

Stumbled on this spot after having a hard time picking a restaurant in Jasper. My boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised at how great we thought the food was. the quality of the ingredients was very apparent. We shared two entrees, a regular salad, a bottle of wine and we couldn't resist trying the cheesecake springrolls. Safe to say we left very full but extremely happy. Definitely will be returning.

I ordered the Zasketti Rose and it was outstanding, with so many great flavors and interesting textures. Homemade “zucchini noodles” were cooked to perfection and the sauce (pumpkin or winter squash?) was lovely. Overall a delicious dish, very tasty and obviously made from scratch. It was a bargain at under $30.

Lovely restaurant in Jasper, it’s not very big so would recommend booking. We shared the bison and boar belly flatbread for our starters and for mains, we had the cod and the halibut: both were delicious. We managed to share a desert of mango cheesecake spring rolls which was totally yummy!

Excellent choices on the menu
Excellent service and food presentation
I know there was no choice in washroom location. Going upstairs is bit of a pain but that doesn't stop me from coming again.
The prices of the wine were a bit steep especially for bc wine. Doesn't stop me from coming back or recommending this restaurant though!

Very enjoyable evening meal, friendly staff, delicicious food. Only thing to fault it, if you’re seated near the door like we were, with people are coming in or going out, you get a blast of cold air. There is a curtain to try to help, but sadly it doesn’t do the job. Otherwise, would definitely recommend. So wrap up warm!

Really lovely meal especially the seafood pot. The reason I didn’t give 5 stars is we were seated near the door and it was really cold. The dessert was okay but a bit weird, pancake rolls with runny cheesecake in the middle but came with nice pistachio ice cream

Super friendly, accommodating staff (management and servers). Went above and beyond the call of duty when our table wasn't ready at reserved time. Food choices were plenty. We wanted to try everything. Good on you, Raven Bistro, for high quality, diversity of the menu, big portions, great atmosphere and more.

This is by far the best restaurant I’ve been to in Jasper. After my third visit I felt compelled to review. Every app and main is delicious and well thought out. The service is always super friendly and knowledgeable, especially when it comes to food sensitivities. Happy hour is also a great deal for wine or Scotch. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

Our family dined here last December and it was so good, we made sure to come back this summer. We had the same server (Rachel) as last time and she remembered us right away. She was friendly, personable and helpful. The food was if anything even better this time. The Moroccan flavors were combined in wonderful ways, creating amazing dishes that looked and tasted great. Our vegan daughter had the Raven Salad that she said was "the best salad she's ever had". Don't miss this gem in the Rockies if you're visiting Jasper!

I took my wife here for a Birthday dinner while we were camping near Jasper for the week. I made the reservation including a request for a view (ignored) and a note that this was a celebratory meal.

Event though we intentionally ordered our appetizers and cocktails first and delayed placing our entree order until the app was delivered our mains were dropped on us before the app was finished let alone cleared and we had no opportunity to order drinks to go with our meal as opposed to the cocktails we were still just halfway through. all of this happened because a table of 6 came in just after we did and the kitchen chose to rush our food out in order to then focus on the larger table.

The food was good, though not special, and the staff not trained on managing service times at all. If you are going to let your kitchen staff manage the pace of service in the dining room you can bet you'll be seeing more and more reviews like this one.
