Lovely experience. Very romantic setting and fantastic food.
Awesome service and friendly, very covid safe
What a lovely early evening dining experience, watching the sunset and alpen glow. The food was excellent, as was the service. The protocols for COVID were very well done, especially the dividers between tables which actually look very attractive, aside from being functional. Thank you!
The food was amazing! I didn't enjoy the gondola ride up because it scared me but the food and the views at the top made it worth it.
This was one of the best and unique dining experiences we have ever had! Eric was our server and he was fantastic. Very attentive but did hover where you felt rushed. The only down side was we were told we had 1 1/2 hours to dine, we drinks, appy's main course etc... this did make us feel a bit rushed.
We would recommend making a reservation to enjoy the sunset. Spectacular.
Nous allons retourner c est certains
La nourriture était excellente !
Service wasn’t the greatest. Our appetizers arrived before our drink order did. Took our waitress over 5 minutes to come to our table after we were seated. Food was mediocre at best. Portion sizes are way too small. My husband ordered the gnocchi and it literally had 10-12 pieces and that was it. He left dinner still hungry. My seafood was over cooked and dry. We will not be returning to Sky Bistro.
Very nice Dinner, Tables perfectly spaced out with lots of room for Social Distancing.
We enjoyed the view and the food. We will definitely be going back again.
Excellent food and the most spectacular view. Our waiter Tim was knowledgeable and very friendly.
Beautiful food and spectacular views. Appreciated the lovely mocktails on the menu.
We were there for the birthday of my friend and mine. We've spend an awesome evening in an awesome place... The drinks were really great and the food even more...! Perfect place, great memories...!
Great food, great views and awesome service.
Short ribs were fantastic! Service was as well. Dine there if you can.
The food at 7500 feet above sea level is magnificent!
My wife and I had chowder to start. We were served by a very friendly waittress Sidney. She gave us food suggestions and they were perfect. I had arctic char and
my wife the Sushi appetizer. The food and service was a 10 out of 10. We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary.
Great dining with greatest view. Amazing service from our waiter Tim.
Amazing view, this will be the first thing you notice! Great menu with good variety. Very romantic spot, you will be surrounded by couples! great service, very quiet atmosphere, overall great dinner
Wonderful evening with great service. Tim was extremely nice and helpful. Great suggestions for the wine and menu.
Surprisingly high quality and unique food across a wide selection.
A must do- if fine dining at 7500ft in the Rocky Mountains interests you. The food is spectacular and delicious with service to match.
Definitely wouldn’t go back!
I booked this well in advance knowing we we would be the last reservation time of the evening, wanting a window seat which we gladly would have waited for. We did not get that & got seated at a normal table, the host told us we would be moved as soon as a window seat became available... this didn’t happen, as soon as we got our water a table was available and another couple at the door got seated there which sucked for us I guess.
Our server was good, don’t remember his name but he was good.
tuna app was good
Duck was over cooked and very crispy but good
The pork was not 14 ounces and on the smaller little bed of vegetables ever & the sauce tasted burnt
The beef was nothing to write joke about it, it was well cooked but had zero flavor at all.
All in all when paying 245 for the gondola and the sky view experience it was definitely not worth it even for the view.
Fantastic Service, Food was amazing, can't beat the view, would definitely recommend.
The staff and the service I received was over my expectation. All the employees were respectful and welcoming. Since I’m a French speaker, everyone was nice and patient while talking to me to make sure I understand everything. The food was delicious and the view was astonishing! I really enjoyed my evening
The only thing that disappointed me a little is that I asked to be next the window ... which didn’t happen but I guess you probably received a lot of requests so it’s hard to please everyone.
Was perfect only problem reserved in advance for window view table
and was on a first come first served ???
We spent a wonderful evening at Sky Bistro to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary.
The food was delicious and creative, the setting was stunning, and our server, Courtney, was amazing. It was the perfect way to celebrate each other. We will recommend Sky Bistro to all of our friends and will definitely come back again!
What a great place to have dinner. The food and drinks were amazing! The service was great and the view outstanding. A must do in Banff
Breathtaking views, good food, great atmosphere. Overall an enjoyable experience for the family. Thank you
Chef Scott's dinner menu was so tempting; we wanted to try everything! Bison, gnocchi, and soup to start let us know we were in for a treat. The beef, pork, and arctic char entrees were done to perfection and every dish was complemented with perfect pairings of sides and sauces. The coulis and reductions were delicious! We also had trouble choosing between the desserts so we were glad to share and try them all! The strawberry was light and full of flavour, the lemon was exquisite, and the chocolate was melt-in-your mouth delicious! To top it off the service was outstanding. Thank you Courtney!
Incredible place to enjoy a meal with a view. If you’re already planning to go up the mountain in the gondola, I would definitely incorporate a meal at Sky Bistro. Incredible view and an all-around delicious meal (had the duck wings - outstanding, the chowder - very good, the short rib - so tender it fell off the bone and the strawberry shortcake - excellent, but wil ask for a bit more strawberry sauce next time). This experience topped off an amazing week in Alberta and made the trip truly special.
Not only do you get an amazing meal, you get amazing views while you dine on the top of Sulphur Mountain. Mountains all the way around you as well as a view of the trail up one of the mountains. The food was delicious and the presentation was wonderful. Our wait staff Danielle was delightful, attentive and fun.
Nice, romantic dinner with good food and a fantastic view.
We had an amazing experience ! The view was incredible, and the service was on point. Food was tasty, and a lot of great cocktails too ! Would go back, anytime.
Super impressive restaurant with amazing views. Highly recommend if you're looking for a special night out.
I would really recommend this place to celebrate a special occassion or family dinner for fine dining.
This was our second time here and the food did not disappoint! We ordered the soup special which was a mushroom truffle oil purée soup, the bison tartare, the pork, the beef, and the lemon. Everything was delicious!! We were disappointed to learn that they change up their dessert menu seasonally as we had our favourite dessert here and now it’s no longer on the menu, but overall, still a spectacular experience to explore Sulphur Mountain and then have dinner while watching the sunset view. The only complaint we have is the manager was very rude upon arrival to the elderly couple in front of us. He made a snarky comment about them to a server right in front of us. He didn’t say anything rude to us but the fact he would talk so rudely about customers in front of us, was just not a good impression upon entering the restaurant. Our server on the other hand, was attentive and very kind!
Best Gnocchi my husband ever had. Our server Danielle was very helpful and offered great suggestions. Will definitely go again!
All menu is excellent recommend the pork outstanding
We were a group of 6 and tried 5 different appetizers and 5 different entrees and all the desserts. So good!! Enjoyed everything. Quality and flavour is top notch! Great for date night or adult outings!
Excellent food and service! Bison is a must try
I usually never leave any reviews, but our experience was so outstanding that I had no choice but to share how amazing everything was. It's easily the best food we ever ate in a restaurant. The view is breathtaking and the staff genuinely cares about your experience and want you to have the best. If you're planning a trip to Banff, this is your main attraction right there, DO NOT SKIP THIS. Enjoy!
