I booked The Market Bistro as a “fancy dinner” for a girls weekend, and left incredibly disappointed. My friend and I arrived on time for our 7pm reservation time, and were seated around the corner outside (not on the main patio) where there was only a few tables and no music. We waited about 10 minutes for water and menus, and promptly asked for the cheese board appetizer to start us off. After waiting 35 minutes with no update on when our appetizer would be out, I kindly approached the manager and asked him to cancel our order as the wait times were just too long. He looked visibly upset and taken back, but offered no “it’ll be right out” or an apology.

Absolutely would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially if you’re looking quality customer service. While I didn’t try the food, I would not wait around 30+ minutes anywhere for a simple cheese board.

Food was good, but not great. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and when I made the reservation I mentioned that, but the server just said hello, never came back to check on how our meals were - nothing.

We dined here after a nice hike up to Grassi Lakes. Food, service and menu economics were great. We'll most definitely dine at the Market Bistro again when in the Three Sisters community of Canmore.

The food, service and outdoor dining were fantastic! My only complaint is that we had a 7:30 reservation and we were rushed to order because the kitchen was closing. This is a resort town. People expect to eat later and not be rushed.

We are regulars of this wonderful restaurant for about 3 years now and still believe it’s one of the best menus in Canmore. The chef is accommodating and very talented. Also a lovely patio ambiance! We’d call this place a hidden gem!

We had a lovely first dining experience at The Market Bistro! I
The patio was wonderful and had breathtaking views. It was lovey, and not crowded, wonderfully arranged for individual parties to enjoy their own dining experience. We had amazing service and delicious meals. Bert good value for delicious, well portioned meals! We will be back for sure!

Despite tables on the patio being available for walk-ins and extra tables added after we arrived they were not able to accommodate us outside and placed us inside. The food was ok but the chicken pasta had only a minute amount of chicken. Not at the level one would expect for the price. The wine list was not good at all with liquor store wines at inflated prices.

Ambiance suffered from our being the only guests dining inside, doubtless this will change when conditions normalize. Wine list was good value. Both appies and entrees were excellent. Our desert was presented to us as complimentary as a recognition of our anniversary (49) this was our first visit but we will be back, and soon.q

Patio seating. Had 2 appies (meatballs and shrimp). Both were very good. And the duck confit with chutney flatbread… that was excellent. Service needs a little more training. Other then that, good location off the beaten path in Canmore and great mountain views. We’ll be back.
