Sky Bistro, Mountain Top Dining @ Banff Gondola
***please note all seating requests at Sky Bistro are subject to availability.
Always a winner with visitors to Banff. Views combined with superb food and service. We love it here!
Thought the prices were a little steep especially since you have to take the $60 gondola ride up but it’s totally worth it. Everything that we were served, including drinks, was amazing!!! Been craving it all after walking out the doors.
To dine with this view was a once in a lifetime experience. The venue was clean, welcoming, and lively. The staff is very alert and happy to please - a huge shoutout to the manager who made it around to every table getting to know each of us and ensuring a pleasant experience. Our server was informative and friendly. The food was delicious; zero complaints. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to experience the best of Banff.
Great view, delicious food, wonderful company.
Worth the prepaid “gondola experience” if you’re planning to eat dinner.
Awesome view! The ceased salad and tomato soup were amazing. I highly recommend during the day or as the sun is setting.
Great food. Really good selection. The soup and duck salad were great. The venison was tender. The beef was also very good.
The view really can't be beat. The food and service were outstanding. The only negative is the dessert menu was somewhat limited but the items were very good. The other thing to keep in mind is you have to purchase a $65 ticket to get there.
Outstanding, wonderful view. Great service and delicious food. Great value.
Great experience, definitely worth it to purchase the gondola and meal package. Food and service was fantastic but the view is the real star.
This was a fantastic place. If you go during the winter, bundle up enough to do the boardwalk, and I’d recommend eating before 6pm, so you can see the sunset. The food was absolutely on point and the views coming down at night were beautiful.
Food was spectacular. Service was amazing and our server treated us well. I loved how the workers would come and check up on us even though they weren’t serving us. I would recommended this to anyone that comes to Banff. An experience you can’t miss. Only bad side was the wine listings were a bit to high priced for what they were worth for.
What a fantastic event, view and a fabulous dinner, can’t go wrong, great anniversary date!!!
Thank you will be back!
We tried the salmon salad, escargot, chowder, beef entree, and chicken entree. Everything was exquisitely plated and tasted amazing! We will definitely go back.
The experience was amazing the only complaint would be our waitress asked us where we were from and told her we were from Toronto and told us people in the area don’t like people from Toronto, wasn’t the best intro. The food, drinks & view was amazing
Got there a little earlier than our reservation but they couldn't seat us. Too bad the sun set a little earlier, but still a great time. Food was the star of the show. The mountain mule is top notch.
While our soup and meals were very tasty, my husband’s short-rib meal was cold. He was disappointed.
The food was amazing and the service very good. Our reservation was for after dark, so we lost the view, but the ambiance was very nice. The restaurant was at 100% capacity, but we didn't feel crowded or too close to other diners. Prices are a bit of a splurge, but WELL worth it.
Food was overpriced and underflavored. Not very many options on the menu. Definitely great place for drinks but head down the mountain for food.
Went for the view but was more impressed by the food! The tomahawk chop was one of the best I’ve ever had. Bison tartare and Beet salad were amazing as well.
Everything about this restaurant was worth it. The views, the food, the service. I would recommend it to anyone in Banff either visiting or permanent residents.
Great dining experience with stunning view.
Awesome food, view and service.
Great food and great service!!
We went for Nee Year’s Eve and it was delightful. Food tasted amazing, service was perfect and ambiance was exactly what we were looking for.
Celebrating early New Year’s
everthing was great. just wish the portion sizes would have been bigger for the price. I would recommend. :)
Amazing food, views and service. Our server Alex was outstanding! Would highly recommend to anyone.
Beautiful views. Fabulous food. Wonderful ambiance. Food took a while to come out but otherwise a great experience!
Amazing, food and views are spectacular
Sky Bistro was the absolute most perfect ending to our Banff trip! The atmosphere was great, service even better, and food was delicious! We cannot wait to return in a few years! HIGHLY recommend!
Wish there was more stars for the quality of the food, 5 doesnt do it justice.
we had arrived on Christmas day for our reserved time. upon being told to wait 10 minutes for tables to clear (which we were okay with) other people that were waiting after we arrived got seated first which was a window seat that we requested.
The ambience and excellent service from staff was fantastic. The food was exquisite!!
Will definitely be returning!!!!!!
From the moment we walked up to the reservation desk to our last mouthful of dessert, we felt like we had found a truly spectacular restaurant. Our cocktail service by Jenny and Katie was exceptional. Courtney was an outstanding server who provided outstanding food and wine recommendations. Our appetizers of duck wings and bison tartare and with mains of beet gnocchi, the tomahawk chop, venison and roasted chicken made this more than just a dining experience. Courtney did not lead us astray! Thank you!!!
Staff was welcoming from moment we arrived at Banff Gondola , blankets were supplied for trip . Meal was amazing and wine list with Canadian content was well received by my family . This was second time at Sky Bistro so enjoyed the seasonal menu for winter . Will certainly be back
Sky Bistro is a awesome place to go. High in the mountains, the view is unbelievable. The staff is very friendly, food is awesome.
It was quite lovely. Very friendly and fun staff. It was great to be on the mountain in the evening hours . A totally different and delightful experience. Thank you.
What an amazing evening. As locals we have been up a number of times it not at night. We loved the ride up, the beautiful seasonal decorations and our meal and service was exceptional. We felt quite special!
Excellent food. Enjoyed the Polenta dish which was served with a crisp kale and baked tomato. Delicious. Excellent wine selection and great, professional service.
