    Lovely food, fantastic location. Due to a previous diner over staying, we were 15 minutes late sitting down and as a result, we were a bit wished to avoid missing the last gondalo of the evening.

    Gorgeous views and fabulous food. We had a reservation for 11:45 and got there early and were sat right away. The place was packed by 12pm. Most of the tables by the windows are 2 top and no reserving them so just hope one is open when it's your turn. The squash soup and parpadelle were delicious. Sophia was a great waitress.

    Sky Bistro was an overall top-notch dining experience. From the views, to the drinks, to the food, it was a 10/10 experience for us on what was my birthday. The staff made a special effort for my birthday by providing champagne, & a complimentary dessert. The best part of our experience was the staff - from the moment you walked in we were treated great. And our server, Carla, was a gem. Thank You.

    If you want to have a fantastic dining experience with a friend at this time of year, book a table at like 5 pm (a little later as spring gets near) sit by the glass wall and let the view feed your soul. then, choose your starter, and if you ever practice mindful eating, now is the time. It's worth the attention. Note that if the entree doesn't mention a side, it doesn't come with one, and the side plates are a healthy helping to share. There are only a few dessert choices, but that just means they've been focused on. Wonderful meal, beautiful sunset, and when you go to nightrise, go to the top floor. turn left and go up the ramp. trust me. :)

    What an amazing experience. From the food, to the ambiance, to the service- everything was spectacular. The sablefish in the tomato and fennel broth was delicious, and the duck with the rhubarb apple glaze had great flavor. Our server, Matthew, was very attentive and the executive chef even stopped by the table to see how we were enjoying the food. The view of the mountains and the snow covered trees is breathtaking.

    Do not pay for the dinner / gondola package for $155. The gondola is $64 so it’s $90 for food. When we were at the gondola they automatically charged us for the package even though we said we hadn’t done that before at our previous dining experiences. They assured us jt was a better deal - it includes an appetizer and entree. When we got upstairs, they gave us the regular menu with the prices. When we said we had purchased the package, they removed the menu and gave us the exact same one with no prices. I’m a vegetarian but my 2 friends are not. None of us spent close to $90 for food. I spent $52 and my friends spent $68 - all well below the $91. When I expressed my frustration, we were offered a free dessert. Obviously a $10 dessert is not going to make up a difference of almost $100. In the end they did refund us the package and we paid for what we had ordered. Note - we each had a cocktail and split a bottle of wine. Even with drinks included, my total bill was a little under $100. It’s a shame they have to do this. It feels like a scam.

Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we want to assure you that we take it seriously. We will thoroughly review your comments with our operating managers to identify areas for improvement in our processes to prevent similar situations in the future.

    Overpriced place! Slow and poor service! I had to ask server several times to take dirty dishes away. Window table has a good view, but very cold to sit there, the heater does not work. The food quality is poor. We had sable fish and duck, I do not recommend both dishes, does not taste good!

    We had a 1:15 lunch and it was amazing. Unbelievable views with excellent food and service. We had the bison as an appetizer and it was very good. I had the best salad and the trout. The rest of our party had the tiger prawns and the brisket burgers. We sampled some Canadian white wine and beer as well. We took the stairs after to the lookout more even more great views. This is a must if you are in Banff!

    If you embark on the gondola trip but skip the Sky Bistro for dinner, you're missing out on an incredible experience.
