The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

    We were finishing our West to East trip through the Canadian Rockies on the Rocky Mountaineer with a final dinner at Thep Guild. We ate outside. Food, service and ambience were exceptional. Best Pisco Sour cocktail outside of Costa Rica! I highly recommend this restaurant to you!

    We went for an anniversary dinner, and I have to say the service was excellent. Food was delicious and portions were about as good as it gets. The Drinks were great and I asked for a recommendation. The server made sure he spoke to the bartender and came back with a drink that suited me perfectly, I then ordered another. When the bill came it was less than expected. All in all, I would go back in a heartbeat!

    I usually have great meals at the Guild but this time the server seemed to be on a mission to get us out of the restaurant as fast as possible even though it was so quiet inside. I am not going to let this one occasion ruin my overall though of the restaurant but it was an uncomfortable lunch.

    Not a bad dinner but wouldn’t necessarily go back if given the choice. A little pricey for the quality. Got a glass of wine which was decent but on the higher price range. Got deviled eggs which seemed to lack some flavor and obviously had been premade and sitting in a fridge. Got the sirloin and rigatoni. Both were okay just nothing special.

    Wasn’t busy lots of staff on but they were busy doing something I guess. Ambiance was poor as they forgot the music, TVs were off and when slow those things add much needed ambiance. Lack of attention to details. Service was amazing

    A wonderful experience. The food was great. My only concern was when single malt scotch is ordered with soda, they should present them separately not premixed before received at the table. George (our waiter) was fantastic and very attentive to our needs. I would definitely recommend to anyone to visit the Guild.
