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 Zusketti Verde. 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 Mango Cheesecake Spring Roll, you are looking at a great night out!

Finding a restaurant with interesting vegetarian items on its menu is difficult. While there aren't many vegetarian items on the Raven Bistro menu, the ones that were listed sounded like they were a cut above the normal fare. We like middle eastern flavors so decided to try the Moroccan Spiced Strudel. We were not disappointed. It was delicious. The tomato chutney in particular was excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We had a superb server(Webee) & a great window table. The menu had many appealing choices which allowed our vegetarian friends options. The flavors of all dishes were great, however the Three Paroahs meats( lamb, beef, chicken) were overcooked. A bit disappointing this time as we have had superlative meals here in the past.

A review said it was a fusion restaurant unfortunately the chef decided to fuse every cuisine in the world. Badly thought out menus. Herbs and spicing horrible.

The calamari was amazing. Best in town!
The seafood pot and coconut halibut were wonderful dishes.
Wine nicely paired
staff was very helpful.
Although it was a bit noisy we struck up a wonderful conversation with the people at the next table. They equally loved their meals.

Will definitely book there again when in Jasper.

The Raven Bistro was a perfect place to dine for our anniversary. We were able to find many Gluten Free options on the menu, and were thrilled to be able to order a gluten and dairy free dessert. The food was outstandingly delicious. We honestly wish this restaurant was closer to home. We will go there again on our next trip to Jasper.

The portions and prices weren’t consistent across the menu. Don’t make any conclusions based on the portion size in the next table. The food lacked flavor and authenticity. It is heavily tailored for a western palette. The falafels were doughy and undercooked in the inside. The Lipton Peppermint teas didn’t just fit in with the menu or the prices they charge (It’s not Tim Hortons). The Moroccan Chickpea and Kale Strudel and Tomato Chili Chutney didn’t have any flavor and was quite bland. Overall it was very disappointing.

Beautiful ambience. Very busy night but service kept up. One of our dishes was not hot but they redid it to our satisfaction and credited coffee and dessert. Mussels were delicious in a very flavourful broth. Loved the dipping sauce for the calimari - curry mayo. Buddha bowl was lovely and good size portion.. not overly sauced. Cocktails were outstanding. Try the Bocephus.... oooh yummy.. makes me want to have another. Citrus and not too sweet. Berry mohito left us hoping for a warmer day and a patio. Top knotch. Cheesecake spring rolls are ingenious but pistachio ice cream was the perfect finisher.

Came here for my first wedding anniversary for something different and we were not disappointed. The only down side was the food was too good and we ate it all including sharing the brie(which is amazing) and sharing dessert, I walked away very uncomfortably full. I was pleasantly suprised with the pricing, especially with the bottles wine, I'm not used to seeing so many under $60. Our server is in our top 5 favorite servers we have ever had. Great experience.

Best food in Jasper! The have an extensive wine list and a variety of food options to meet anyone’s needs. The have amazing vegan options, highly recommend the “chorizo” spring rolls. The made accommodations for all of my dietary needs including making the falafel dairy free. The service was exceptional and highly knowledgeable. I ate here twice during a weekend stay.

We were introduced to Raven through a “foodie tour “ with Estelle. We knew that was where dinner would be the next night. Everything from the service to the ambiance, from the quality of food to the exceptional value simply blew us away!
Thanks very much! We are huge fans!

Responded on March 19, 2019

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience. We purchased the Raven 2 years ago and yes we changed a lot. We added a full lunch menu, revamped the dinner menu to be healthier and more vibrant, modernized the cocktails, added an amazing craft beer selection and revamped the wine selections (all of which are available at happy hour from 3-6 every day for half price) with the aid of our sommelier trained servers. We love our little restaurant and are thrilled with the overall positive feedback.
