    This was our second time dining at Market Bistro. The food is second to none. I would put the food is the same categories as any high end 5 star restaurant. The one reason I don’t give this restaurant 5 star across the board is the overall experience drops due to how hot the restaurant gets and the staff seem less than happy working. Maybe that’s because of how hot it gets. I would still recommend you check this restaurant out but our next visit would not be in the winter but during a time where we could eat outside. If the restaurant worked on the overall customer experience it would be one of the top restaurants in the Banff / Canmore area. The food is that good.

    The salmon and prawn meal that two of us had was exceptional. The pizza and spaghetti dishes enjoyed by others were also very good. Service was very good. Value is also high. The only concern was the noise level, and even after asking to have the music turned down, there was a lot of noise because the restaurant was very busy. We will go earlier, maybe around 4 or 4:30 to avoid the busy time that was in full swing by 6 pm. The Market Bistro is one of our favourite restaurants in Canmore!

    We really enjoyed our dinner and service Sunday evening. It picked up around 630 so if you want a quieter dinner, earlier is better. Food was delicious! The olive oil and bread was good! But the vinaigrette drops to the bottom so essentially you’re dipping into straight olive oil. We just pour it out onto a plate and dipped it from there. It was all very tasty though (:

    The French onion soup was the best I've ever had. The burrata salad with tomato and basil was delicious. We were a little disappointed with out antipasti board as we ordered it particularly for the caponata and it arrived without it. Maybe they ran out? Not sure but the waiter seemed new and already couldn't answer a few questions we had before so we decided not to bother him. Everything tasted great and we finished off the meal sharing a delicious tiramisu.

    We had the duck confit, lamb shank, salmon with Argentinian shrimps, and pumpkin pie. The food was delicious; however, the salmon was a bit over cooked for my mom’s liking, and the amount of meat on the duck bone and lamb bone was about 4 bites worth. My mom and sister were satisfied with their meal portion, but I have a larger appetite than both of them, so I was left feeling hungry for the amount of money that my dish was worth. The service was top notch, taste was great, ambience was wonderful, but those who have larger appetites may want to select the pasta dishes, or order extra plates to satiate their hunger.

    Easily the loudest restaurant I’ve ever been to. Food was decent, service was attentive, but the noise… wow. I’ve been to many restaurants with an “open kitchen” but this felt like we were literally IN the kitchen. Dishwasher slamming plates behind my head. Bartender taking a bottle of vodka off my shoulder to mix a drink. A busy Saturday night for sure, but if you are expecting to carry any kind of a conversation, I would suggest the patio.

    We loved the Market Bistro. French onion soup was excellent and mushroom soup very good. My husband and I both had the lamb shank special which was very good with broccoli and delicious brown butter gnocchi. Lemon pie for dessert is a must!! Service was excellent! Since it was Wine Wednesday, we were offered a glass of Chardonnay or Malbec for $5C each. Both were quite good, not “bottom of the barrel” wines. We would definitely go back!

    I live close, and I have eaten here many times, this time I was disappointed in the food and service. The server frankly was struf=ggling with English and messed up the order. She was trying hard to rush our party to order. The food has gone down. I ordered French onion soup and mussels. The soup was literally boiling when it came to the table next to no cheese on it. The mussels were a very small [portion compared to the last time, and the mussels them selves were small and many not opened, Used to come with fresh focaccia bread to dip, now just four pieces of dried-out bread. Over all a disappointing evening with friends from out of town.
