It was a bad experience for us!

We ordered specifically no croutons in our french soup, it was 3 order of french onion soup and they brought all of them with regular bread croutons, then they LIED that it was gluten free bread, when it was NOT!
We ordered Egg planed as a small portion, they charged us as for the Large (extra) and then they argued with us!
It's not that we were cheap, it's them being arguing with us, when we were there first time and don't know how the portions look like. They might brought large size, BUT IT IS NOT WHAT WE ORDERED AGAIN!

VERY RUDE SERVICE, the chief literately was glaring at us.

We visit Canmore several times a month, and will never go back to this restaurant!
Have no idea why they have 4.7 here, they don't deserve that.

The Market Bistro
Responded on June 18, 2020

We apologise for the mix up with the Soup, we take allergies very seriously and proudly offer gluten free bread alternatives to cater for celiac diets amongst many of our dishes, I can assure you that you received gluten free croutons. We’re sorry you received a larger portion of Eggplant, however you were charged for the appetizer size despite enjoying the larger portion. If you would like to discuss further, please reach out via email. Regards, The Market Bistro Management Team

The food was very acceptable. The service was very good. We were a little surprised at the corkage charged for wine purchased from their retail outlet. Overall, the experience was positive.

Thank you for your review! We're delighted you enjoyed our food and thought highly of our staff. We're sorry you misunderstood reason we charge corkage, Unwined @ Three Sisters Wine store does operate as an individual business therefore we charge corkage just as we would if you were to bring a bottle in from any other store.

The food was well prepared and tasty. However, for the portion size I did find it slightly over priced.
Our waitress seemed less than happy to be serving us and it tainted our experience.
Overall if we had a different serving staff we would definitely return

As for our serving staff were very sorry for this rare occasion you experienced! We will take your comments and continue to work with our team.

We had dinner on the first night The Market Bistro reopened (after the mandatory closure of restaurants due to Covid-19). Our meals were all delicious and the patio is spectacular. The table d'hote was excellent and priced very reasonably. We will continue to support this excellent restaurant in the years to come. Well done, Anthony!

Obvious French (Québécois?) influences but that doesn’t stop them offering pizza and curry (the latter as part of the Menu du Jour).

I had (shared) cheese board with extra for charcuterie which turned out to be only a small amount of one meat. But all very tasty.

Then cassoulet. It was quite good although obviously reheated from a previously made batch.

Then maple crème brûlée. Too cold to enjoy the full flavour but well executed. Not as tasty as I had hoped.

We went to the Market Bistro for Valentines Day dinner and thoroughly enjoyed their 4 course Valentine’s Day special dinner. All of the courses were very good, but the main course was duck confit and it was the best I have ever been served and eaten.
The service was excellent and the courses timed perfectly.

The Market Bistro has an excellent menu that is well worth the visit. It’s ambience is simple but it’s staff is incredible. Anthony goes out of his way to make things pleasurable for his guests. My wife and I have been going to his restaurant since he started and we have enjoyed every visit. His French influence definitely makes the menu special. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that’s visiting the Canmore area. It’s a hidden gem.

Busy Friday night. We were greeted immediately at the door and sat quickly at our table. However it then took about 20 mins for someone to come take our drink orders (after asking 2 people). The server was brash and quite rude. Food came quickly- we ordered a pizza, makrel, salmon ‘salad’ short rib and eggplant. Pizza was delicious as well as the makrel- everything else wasn’t worth the 30$ price tag. Probably won’t go back unless it’s for an afternoon pizza and beer.
